Revived alongside Ichabod is the infamous Headless Horseman who is on a murderous rampage in present-day Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod quickly realizes that stopping Headless is just the beginning, as the resurrected rider is but the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and only one of the many formidable foes that Ichabod must face to protect not only Sleepy Hollow, but the world.

One of my favorite indie horror releases of the 2015, We Are Still Here is making its way to Blu-ray and DVD just in time for Halloween:
Press Release: A tragic death leaves a married couple devastated, but their misery soon turns into mortal fear in the thoroughly haunting new film We Are Still Here.

John Flood #1

Published by Boom! Studios
John Flood is another entry in the supernatural detective genre that focuses less on the odd factor and more on its characters in this introductory issue. The premise and exposition is handled quickly within the very first page. John Flood is a detective that was once an employee for the government, or “someone”, as he puts it. These employers found a way to remove the need for sleep that has caused Flood to be in a perpetual in-between state where the real world and dream reality blends together. This unique way of seeing causes Flood to question the validity of many of the things he views and experiences. There is a brief point of view frame showing Flood’s perspective from the inside of a police interrogation room, »

It’s been some time since Johnny Depp graced our screens. He’s been a Hollywood icon for over 30 years and has starred in some of the biggest box office smashes in history as some of the most recognisable characters on our screens.
So much so that in a recent poll by Ladbrokes, he was voted the UK’s favourite current celebrity. Which is quite the accolade in a world of the Kardashians and Ryan Gosling.
Of course, that’s because he has a fantastic back catalogue of work, but what ranks up there amongst his best?
A Nightmare on Elm Street may have been Johnny Depp’s first role on the big screen, but he showed no sign of nerves with a magnificent performance as Glen Lantz, one of the main characters who experience the horrific nightmares of Freddy Krueger.
Depp was aged just 21 at the time, »

Image Entertainment/Rlj seem to be everywhere these days, with picking up titles ranging from Joe Dante’s Burying The Ex to one that I’m excited as hell to check out, Adam Egypt Mortimer’s Some Kind Of Hate. Adding yet another interesting title to the mix, Image/Rlj has announced their acquisition of L. Gustavo Cooper’s June, which is being described as a “coming of rage” film, which sounds like something I could definitely be on board with. Having previously directed The Devil Incarnate, Cooper’s new film deals with a nine year old girl cursed with having a demon living inside of her. Sounds like a fun time to me. Co-written by Sharon Y. Cobb (On Hostile Ground), June stars Kennedy Brice (Fox’s “Red Band Society,” AMC’s “The Walking Dead”), Casper Van Dien (Sleepy Hollow, Starship Troopers) and Victoria Pratt (Hush Little Baby, Mutant X).

It is with much sadness that I share the news of Christopher Lee's passing. According to reports, the legendary actor was recently hospitalized in London for respiratory problems and passed away due to heart failure on Sunday morning. News of his passing only came down today because his wife wanted to wait until family and friends had been notified.
There has never been and will never be another actor like Sir Christopher Lee. Born on May 27, 1922, he started acting in the 40s, but it wasn't until The Curse of Frankenstein in 1957 where his career (and lifelong friendship with Peter Cushing) would really take off.
Christopher Lee has nearly 300 film & TV credits. While it's no surprise that he's best known for his villainous roles, the amazing part of his extensive career is how different generations and types of fans view him. Maybe you were first introduced to Christopher Lee and »

Christopher Lee, the prolific British actor whose specialty for villainy earned him roles as far and wide as Frankenstein's monster, the Mummy, Bond foe Scaramanga, Sith Lord Count Dooku and Saruman in The Lord of the Rings franchise, died Sunday, in London, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He was 93.
Lee had been admitted to Westminster Hospital for respiratory problems and heart failure. His wife, former Danish model and painter Gitte Kroencke, withheld the news in order to inform family first.
Born in 1922, Lee served in the Royal Air Force and »
Veteran actor Christopher Lee has passed away at the age of 93. Born in London in the year 1922, Lee volunteered to fight in World World II starting in 1939, eventually going on to join the Royal Air Force. Once home, he began having small roles in the feature film world before finding his niche in a slew of Hammer films, starting with 1957’s The Curse of Frankenstein and on up through the 60s and 70s. The actor accrued over 280 acting credits over the course of his prolific career, including The Wicker Man, 1941, The Man with the Golden Gun, and a personal favorite, Gremlins 2: The New Batch. An avid reader, Lee was a massive fan of author J.R.R. Tolkien and turned in an iconic performance as Saruman in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, reprising the role for the recent Hobbit films. Lee also developed a rapport with filmmaker Tim Burton »

Christopher Lee has died at age 93. The veteran actor died at 8.30am on Sunday, June 7 at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
Telegraph reports: “He had been treated there for respiratory problems and heart failure over the preceding three weeks and turned 93 in hospital. Lady Lee chose to delay the public announcement of Sir Christopher’s passing until she had informed close family members. The couple were married for more than 50 years.”

Lee appeared in more than 250 movies, but for many was forever known as the vampire Count Dracula in a slew of “Hammer Horror” movies — the gory, gothic thrillers churned out by the British studio in the 1950s and 1960s that became hugely popular.

Christopher Lee, "best known for a variety of films from Dracula to The Wicker Man through to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, passed away on Sunday morning at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London," reports Benjamin Lee in the Guardian. The star of The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Horror of Dracula (1958), Captain Horatio Hornblower (1951), To the Devil a Daughter (1976), The Passage (1979), House of the Long Shadows (1983), Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990), The Golden Compass (2007), The Resident (2011), Hugo (2011) and four films with director/fan Tim Burton (Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Dark Shadows), was 93. » - David Hudson »
News of the death of Christopher Lee, the famed movie villain — known for his roles as Count Dracula, the Frankenstein monster and Fu Manchu — sparked an instant response on Thursday from the film industry and those who had simply been fortunate enough to meet the venerable British actor. Tim Burton — who directed Lee in five films, including Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland — released a statement about the late actor, calling it "an honor and pleasure to work with him." "Christopher has been an enormous inspiration to me my entire life,"

Christopher Lee, the second most famous Dracula of the 20th century — an impressive feat — and a memorably irrepressible villain in James Bond film “The Man With the Golden Gun,” in the Star Wars films and in “The Lord of the Rings” pics, has died. He was 93.
His first role for famed British horror factory Hammer Films was not the Transylvanian vampire, however, but Frankenstein’s Monster in 1957’s “The Curse of Frankenstein.” His close friend Peter Cushing, with whom he would co-star in horror films frequently, starred as the Baron.
Lee made his first appearance as the sharp-toothed Count in 1958’s “Horror of Dracula.”
For reasons not quite certain, he skipped the 1960 sequel “Brides of Dracula,” but he returned to the role for 1965’s “Dracula: Prince of Darkness” — a movie »

What if "Gotham" was not the TV series that so many of us thought we needed back in the fall, but what if Bruno Heller's twisty comic book drama has become the TV series we deserve now? Look, if you're going to get hung up on Batman mythology, I'm powerless to tell you that "Gotham" became or ever will become a show that will make you happy. It's a prequel that almost cannot possibly ever line up with the version of the Caped Crusader that we know from either DC Comics, from the Christopher Nolan films or the early Tim Burton films. And that's frustrating. I can't tell you that it isn't. The Penguin is rising! The Riddler is cracking! Somebody who may or may not be The Joker is becoming dangerously unhinged! Even Harvey Dent looks to be a couple bum coin flips away from dementia. And Bruce »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century? Check here for a complete list of our essays. The end of the 1990s was the end of an era on the big screen. The independent filmmaking movement that started the decade had taken full bloom and infiltrated the business. Major studios had begun to jump headlong into the "dependent" game, amping up prestige product and utilizing the awards season as a marketing tool. The blockbuster landscape at the summer multiplex had been interesting, full of original concepts (good and bad), but something else was on the way — a new overlord in the business of film, and one that would more or less make the age of the movie star (at least as we had come to know it) a thing of the past. For those reasons and a slew of others, »
