Don't call Kevin McTurk an animator. Because he's not. No, he doesn't work with live actors and, yes, his characters are crafted and manipulated by hand, but that's where the similarity to stop motion animation ends. McTurk is not an animator but a creature designer and puppeteer and a damn fine one at that. And his latest creation - the gothic horror The Mill At Calder's End - looks absolutely gorgeous.In this gothic puppet tale, Nicholas Grimshaw has returned home to unearth the dark secret of the Mill at Calder's End.Citing the influence of Hp Lovecraft, Edgar Alan Poe, Mario Bava and Jim Henson; boasting the voice talent of Jason Flemyng and Barbara Steele; featuring Hellboy creator Mike Mignola among its concept artists and boasting...

The quiet brutality some people can suffer in everyday life is an aspect the horror genre doesn’t play up all too often. While horror films about zombies, chainsaw wielding killers and other assorted nasty folks are ten-a-penny, horror resorted in more “ordinary” troubles are rather more rare. The reason for this is fairly obvious, many audiences do not go to the cinema to be reminded of the misery which can come from real life and the more excessive the horror, the less real it can feel. The Canal is a film which seeks to bridge this gap, focusing both on a man going through some very real emotional difficulties while also delivering on horror elements we’ve seen many times before. »

Here's the thing... if you missed Raze (review) in theatres, VOD, or DVD, then you seriously missed one of the most ass-kickin' films of the year. So listen up! The flick is hitting cable! Now you have no excuse!
From the Press Release
Raze follows a mysteriously abducted Sabrina (Zoë Bell; Inglourious Basterds), who finds herself in an underground lair led by Joseph (Doug Jones; Hellboy) and Elizabeth (Sherilyn Fenn; "Twin Peaks"), forced to do battle with other innocents for the amusement of unseen spectators. Each of these reluctant warriors has something to lose, but only one will remain when the game is done.

Horror aficionados, rejoice! The Strain, FX’s skin-crawling vampire thriller series from Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan and Carlton Cuse, has been picked up for a second season, which will be shooting again in Toronto this November.
Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, David Bradley, Sean Astin and Kevin Durand lead The Strain‘s ensemble cast, which also includes Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Jack Kesy, Miguel Gomez and Ben Hyland. The show focuses on a Cdc scientist (Stoll) who attempts to contain and eradicate a vampiric epidemic released in modern-day New York City by the all-powerful Master and his blood-sucking minions.
Ratings have been gradually growing since The Strain‘s premiere in July, and a renewal was expected even before the series debuted, given its impressive pedigree. Del Toro is the acclaimed director of such films as Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy and Pacific Rim, while Hogan is an established thriller »

Back in 2010, Guillermo Del Toro had announced a horror game, intended as a series, called Insane, to be developed by ‘Saints Row’ studio Volition, owned by Thq. If the mere idea of Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’S Labyrinth) crafting his own interactive horror experience doesn’t get you at least mildly excited, then I don’t know, maybe you hate video games. Sadly, that game was unceremoniously dumped two years down the line, and my hopes for a genuinely interesting new horror game went down the drain.
Two years have passed since that fateful day…
At the European E3 known as Gamescom, Sony announced a heretofore unmentioned game called Pt, by way of informing the audience of a demo (or, in their words, “playable teaser”), similarly titled, on the PS4, that was immediately available to play. The demo, though, didn’t reveal much at first glance, acceding little to »

Guillermo del Toro is perhaps one of the busiest filmmakers in Hollywood. The director behind fan-favorite films like Pacific Rim, the Hellboy films and Pan’s Labyrinth always has several projects in various states of development. From his take on classic Disney ride The Haunted Mansion to the recently announced Pacific Rim 2, del Toro is the kind of guy who likes to keep busy.
So no one was too surprised when word broke that del Toro was developing a television series based on The Strain trilogy of vampire novels he co-wrote with Chuck Hogan. The show premiered on FX earlier this summer, amid some controversy with regard to its marketing campaign, and its 13-episode first season has been slowly building viewership. Now it looks like fans eager to see the ...

Konami has dropped a bombshell with the sudden release of a new trailer for the Silent Hill series. Although the trailer doesn’t offer much in details pertaining to the actual game or its plot, it does offer some pretty big names that happen to be involved in the project.
First up is Hideo Kojima, the venerable mastermind of the Metal Gear Solid series, and a creative pioneer for the industry. Next comes Guillermo del Toro, the respected Spanish filmmaker responsible for Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, and the Hellboy series. Finally we have Norman Reedus, best known for the cult classic film Boondock Saints and AMC’s mega-smash zombie serial, The Walking Dead, apparently playing the main character of the new game via motion capture.
The trailer also reveals that the game will be powered by Kojima’s revolutionary new Fox engine, which should offer tons of new gameplay possibilities. »

Trevor Hogg chats with Kurtis Wiebe and Tyler Jenkins about transforming a literary icon into a swashbuckling World War II hero…
“My family is very musical, but I’m the only one who’s ever shown interest in creative writing,” explains Kurtis Wiebe (Green Wake) who won a Shuster Award for Outstanding Comic Book Writer in 2012. “But, we grew up with stories very much being part of our lives.” Comic books were not part of reading childhood itinerary. “Not until my mid-twenties when a friend bought me an issue of Walking Dead. I had no idea comics could be anything other than superhero stories, so it was a huge eye opener. I was never into superheroes; it never really caught my attention. The idea that you could tell any story you wanted with the medium was a huge appeal to me.” The desire to take the comic book beyond the »

The world of online television (is it really television? Nothing's being broadcast, technically...) is getting more and more interesting with each passing moment: Netflix is obviously killing it, with their stellar line-up of critical and commercial darlings ("House of Cards," "Orange is the New Black") and Yahoo is about to seriously get into the game by taking a page from the Netflix handbook and resurrecting a wonderfully cultish TV series ("Community," in the spirit of "Arrested Development"). Also: Hulu keeps plugging along. And while Amazon certainly has made strides, with several original shows developed in the last few years, it has yet to really breakthrough. That could change later this month, with its new "third wave" of pilots that boast an impressive line-up of exciting, starry projects.
As Variety notes, the site will debut five pilots as part of its third "pilot season" - they will all debut on August »

Everything you need to know about Guillermo del Toro’s new horror television series…
A Boeing 747 lays dead on JFK airport’s runway, its lights off and crew not responding. Frantic control tower officials blame ‘technical faults’ and ‘terrorism,’ though there are no signs of struggle or escape. Whatever caused this is still locked inside.
No, this isn’t the beginning of Paul Greengrass’ latest movie, or a morally ambiguous Derren Brown special. It’s the opening of The Strain, Guillermo del Toro’s bestselling vampire-epidemic trilogy of books, which then became a television series.
This is the story of those books. Of their journey from an eight-year-old Mexican boy’s already-twisted imagination to failed pitches, unlikely bromances and, eventually, a television series that could redefine vampirism for the modern age.
The Strain doesn’t restrain its soul to just vampires. It’s also a global conspiracy, virus outbreak thriller »

Attach Guillermo del Toro’s name to your project, and it’s pretty much guaranteed that we’re all going to take a look at it. Luckily for The Book of Life, a vividly animated adventure hitting theaters this October, there’s a lot more to like than just that the Hellboy director is involved.
For one thing, the visuals continue to look absolutely gorgeous in this second trailer for the movie, which follows three childhood friends who become the corners of a love triangle. Maria (Zoe Saldana) is the beautiful and spirited lady adored by both the noble-hearted bullfighter Manolo (Diego Luna) and the handsome, self-confident Joaquin (Channing Tatum). The Book of Life focuses primarily on Manolo as, after calling upon the powers of an ancient deity, he travels through The Land of the Living, the Land of the Remembered and the Land of the Forgotten as he searches »

If anything's true of the Guardians Of The Galaxy movie, it's that you come out and instantly want more. Director James Gunn has already promised he'll have a sequel out in three years' time, but until that happens there's at least one other place you can look: the source material. Marvel's comics.
And rather than leave you to navigate the choppy waters of Marvel's continuity alone, we've put together this quick list of comics you might want to read to try and sate those Guardian cravings. Be warned. There are spoilers here…
A relaunch of the team starring the movie cast, this book features a full retelling of Star »
Horror has come in a variety of flavors this summer: Gory. Existential. Sharknado. FX’s The Strain is geek Neapolitan—a combo of all three. It’s a high-concept monster mash—a vampire takeover thing restated as a zombie plague thing—that revels in body ick and clever ironies. This is a show that gets its shocks and jollies from having a goth rocker—a prick raconteur who’s only in it for the “p—y”—accidentally flush his balls down the toilet after his infected body abruptly decides to shed them, leaving him looking like Marilyn Manson on the cover of Mechanical Animals. »

Almost immediately following Legendary's "Skull Island" announcement at Comic-Con, a wild rumor began to swirl that Guillermo del Toro was involved with the project despite the filmmaker's commitment to "Pacific Rim 2". Understandably the rumor didn't pan out as a few days later came word that Joe Cornish had been offered the gig.
Peter Jackson and Andy Serkis, who directed and starred as the title character respectively in 2005′s "King Kong," were asked about the del Toro rumor during the convention. Their answers to Collider might surprise you - seems they learned about the movie at the same time as everyone else. First up, Jackson:
"I don't know anything about it. I'm hearing it from you, for the first time. I would look forward to it. If Guillermo did King Kong, that would be great. That would be fantastic. I'll be there on the first day, and will help him with anything he needs. »
