The Bottom Shelf: Dracula, Blacula, and Troma on Demand

30 November 2014 11:46 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What new horrors await us on DVD this month? Well, lots of bloodsuckers, for starters...

As the old Simpsons quote goes, there are only three real monsters, kid: Dracula, Blacula and Son of Kong. Sadly, giant gorilla junior doesn’t make an appearance this month though we’ve at least got the first two categories covered.

Leading the way with aplomb, our friend Blacula finally graces this young blog with not one but two classics released on Blu-ray and DVD as a complete collection. In case you’re not familiar with this wonderful splicing of seventies Blaxploitation and gothic horror (shame on you if so), the tale of undead African prince Mamuwalde and his ongoing struggle with both his own bloodlust and pesky locals trying to stake him through the heart is both surprisingly well-made and massively enjoyable. Oh, and its success also led to the subsequent release of Blackenstein, »

"Farscape" Creator Pens "Global Frequency"

20 November 2014 9:24 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following their success with "Gotham," Fox and Warner Bros. Television are re-teaming for "Global Frequency," another DC Comics series adaptation which Jerry Bruckheimer will executive produce.

A pilot production commitment has been handed out for the show which will chronicle the inner workings of an organization known as The Global Frequency, a privatized crime-fighting unit that receives funding from around the world to solve the crimes that the police cannot.

"Farscape" creator Rockne S. O'Bannon is penning the pilot script based on "Red" creator Warren Ellis' twelve-issue limited comic book series. The pair, Bruckheimer, and Jonathan Littman will all executive produce.

This will mark the third attempt at a TV series based on the property following a failed pilot in 2005 starring Michelle Forbes and Josh Hopkins, and a version on The CW in 2009 that only made it to script stage.

Aff Review: The Sideways Light

3 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Last Sunday, after a day at Austin Film Festival packed with a lackluster panel, a surprisingly well-done foreign shorts program, and the screening of a Reese Witherspoon film I've been keen to see for months, I closed the evening with The Sideways Light at the Alamo Drafthouse Village.  The thriller was a chilling cap to the night.

In her large house, sextuagenarian Ruth (Annalee Jefferies, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, The Girl) putters around and talks to herself (or so we and her daughter assume). Worried about her ailing mother, Lily (Lindsay Burdge, A Teacher, Frances Ha) has moved back home for the interim. Daughter Lily uneasily slips into the role of caretaker as her mom becomes more childlike. She takes breaks offered by her brother Sam (Mark Reeb, Eve of Understanding, Sun Don't Shine) to visit and flirt with bar owner Aidan (Matthew Newton, Queen of the Damned, Farscape).

10 great milestone TV episodes

3 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Doctor Who, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Star Trek, The Simpsons... Juliette talks us through 10 great TV anniversary episodes...

With so many TV shows being cancelled after a season or two, it’s perhaps not surprising that those that keep going long enough to reach a significant milestone often want to mark the occasion in some way. Such celebratory episodes usually feature plenty of nods, in-jokes and references to past episodes and characters (frequently involving special guest stars from the show’s past returning in some form) and tend to be either light, sometimes metafictional comedy episodes, or extremely dramatic game-changers following which the show may never be the same again. If you’re not crying with laughter, you’ll probably be weeping at the emotional trauma inflicted by the story.

With Supernatural’s 200th episode coming up (fans have been promised a meta episode, brought to you by the show »

The two drama series will return with 13 episodes each – joining the recently commissioned Hunters, created by Gale Anne Hurd, and the highly anticipated television adaptation of Arthur C Clarke’s Childhood’s End.

Starring Christopher Egan (Letters To Juliet), Tom Wisdom (Romeo And Juliet), Roxanne McKee (Game Of Thrones) and Anthony Stewart Head (Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters), the show is set in a time when God has vanished, and Archangel Gabriel is waging war on mankind.

“New Girl” Adds Damon Wayans Jr. to the Apartment Lease, Chris Colfer Writes Tonight’s “Glee” and Fox Orders Batman Prequel “Gotham”

Once again Louie dared visit a topic that TV has otherwise avoided by acknowledging that men use sex toys. Jokes about women’s vibrators have become commonplace, but a similar joke about men is acknowledging a truth that’s mostly ignored. It was a brilliant bit for the season opener, with the kind of brutal honesty that makes Louie one of TV’s best comedies.

Damon Wayans Jr. will be a series regular on the fourth season of New Girl. Now that that’s been taken care of, when can we get some kind of Happy Endings reunion?

A month ahead of the debut of its second season, Netflix has ordered a third season of Orange is the New Black.

Farscape: 10 Things We Want To See In The Film

25 April 2014 12:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

SyFy

The biggest and most surprising science fiction news of the week is that Farscape is returning – and not only that, it’s coming back as a full length feature film with a plot that could potentially launch a new series. It had been rumoured some weeks ago, but the show’s creator Rockne S. O’Bannon confirmed the film was in the very early stages at a panel last weekend at WonderCon.

This must be sweet news for Farscape fans, who previously showed their resolve by successfully petitioning to bring back their cancelled show in 2004 for a brief miniseries called The Peacekeeper Wars. A key quote from one fan back then is that they hoped that one day that the 1999 to 2003 series would be known as “Farscape: The Original Series”, a reference to the longevity of the Star Trek franchise.

Much like Firefly, Farscape is another series that »
