I know what I’ll be getting for myself for a late Valentine’s Day gift and we can all thank Scream Factory for that. Today, the gang over at Sf announced Bluray double features of ’80s horror/sci-fi gems The Curse/Curse II: The Bite and Millennium/R.O.T.O.R, with both hitting shelves this coming February (which makes my Valentine’s Day opening make a little sense I guess). Growing up in the ’80s, I was a big fan of all four films, so if you haven’t seen them, get ready for some fun, because they’re all four a lot of fun (especially The Curse/Curse II). While the specifics as far as supplemental material goes haven’t been announced as of yet, we’ve got the artwork and release date (Feb. 23rd) as well as each film’s synopsis and pre-order info below. »

Okay, you can put your hands down. (We can't see them.) But, we can see why you opened up your ears to the aforementioned artists -- they blessed us with two of the best teen TV show theme songs in the history of time.
7. "My So-Called Life Theme" From "My So-Called Life" (1994 - 1995)
If high-school angst and nostalgia had theme music, this would be it. No lyrics, just all the feels.
6. 'Where You Lead" From "Gilmore Girls" (2000 - 2007)
The Gilmores arguably have the most "fall as f**k" theme ever made. Which probably explains why we never fast-forward through it during our binge watching sessions. »

Some films leave an impact on you so profoundly, that it takes a while for you to fully wrap your head around them. Remove yourself from the theatrical experience of seeing them enough to articulate what made the films hit you so hard. Sean Byrne’s The Devil’S Candy was that kind of film and that kind of theatrical experience, one that reaches through the screen and pulls you right into the film’s story of a father trying to be there for his daughter, in spite of other factors, supernatural and human, all trying to take the young girl away from him.
Ray (the always great Pruitt Taylor Vince), a man hearing demonic voices in his head, stares at a cross in his room. He grabs his flying V guitar and continually strums a single chord over and over, in an attempt to drown out the voices in his head. »

Shiri Appleby is set to appear in “Code Black,” Variety has learned exclusively. Though she is expected to have an arc in the CBS medical drama this season, she is currently signed on to guest star in one episode.
Appleby, who also stars in Lifetime’s “UnReal,” will play Dr. Carla Niven, the ex-girlfriend of first-year resident Dr. Malaya Pineda (Melanie Chandra), who comes back into her life unexpectedly when she shows up to the hospital, this time, as a patient.
Dr. Niven is described as a hard charging, type-a ER doctor from another area hospital who trained at Code Black’s Angels Memorial, which is where her romance began with Dr. Pineda who was then a medical student. Now an ER resident at Angels, Dr. Pineda treats Dr. Niven, who is pregnant and shows up to the hospital for treatment for muscle pain that turns out to be a form of cancer. »

William Sadler is one of those actors better known for his face than his name. Appearing in over 154 productions, his cv includes parts in Die Hard 2, The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey. He’s also a popular face on television, starting out in Tales from the Crypt before starring in the full three-season run of Roswell.
With a career so extensive there was no way we could squeeze all our questions into the standard fifteen minute time slot so instead we sought out Mr Sadler, Bill to his friends, and took him out to dinner. Over the course of our meal we delved into pretty much everything he has ever done, finding out everything from how he found directing, to what it’s like to fight Bruce Willis and, of course, whether the Grim Reaper »

Shiri Appleby is adding to her brood! The "Unreal" star took to Twitter on Monday to announce that she's expecting her second child with fiance Jon Shook. The couple already has a 2-year-old daughter, Natalie. "…And then there were four," the 36-year-old star captioned the family pic, where she's sporting a growing baby bump as she puckers up for a kiss from her little one. The "Roswell" alum recently opened up about how she keeps a healthy balance between her profession and motherhood. "When I am not working, I spend all my time with my daughter and when I am working I try to let myself have the space to be an individual," she told Huffington Post last year. "I tell myself that if I'm not with her, I might as well make the most of the time and do my very best." "Being a woman who is trying to parent, »

The mystery of Bones‘ season-opening vanishing just got a bit more mysterious.
In the wake of the news that Seeley will be missing when Season 11 opens on Thursday, Oct. 1, TVLine has learned exclusively that Dilshad Vadsaria is set to reprise her role as Jared Booth’s wife Padme.
Fox, however, is mum on the status of Jared himself, who in the past has been played by Roswell alum-turned-Night Shift doc Brendan Fehr. (Of note, as a reader reminds my TCA-taxed brain: The second episode of »
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey have a soft spot in all our hearts. Everyone has a favourite between the two, and although I myself am a sap for the first film, there is no denying that William Sadler as the Grim Reaper in the second film was inspired casting.
Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey ended in such a way that it seemed that the story had all been tied up, yet the last couple of years have been littered with rumours that a third film was in the works. Leads Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves has both vocally expressed an interest in another outing but they of course weren’t the only members of World Peace inducing band Wyld Stallyns; they also had the Grim Reaper himself.
Recently we spoke exclusively with William Sadler and enjoyed a lovely meal with him. »

The hourlong drama pilot is described as a sweeping examination of the often baffling, sometimes unexpected but ultimately heart-wrenching ways love and human connection can be found today through a vast web of seemingly unconnected people.
“Jason is one of the most gifted writers working in television or any other medium, and we are thrilled that he will be bringing his unique storytelling talents to HBO,” announced Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming.

If you had trouble understanding why George (Jason Alexander) and Susan (Heidi Swedberg) stayed together on Seinfeld, you weren't the only one. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Alexander was a guest on Wednesday's Howard Stern Show and admitted that the show's writers decided to kill off Susan with poisonous envelopes because he and the rest of the cast did not enjoy sharing scenes with the actress who portrayed her. "I couldn't figure out how to play off of her," Alexander said of Swedberg, who followed her 1997 departure from the celebrated NBC sitcom with roles on Roswell, Gilmore

Since Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979, the Star Trek cinematic outings have proved to be a smorgasbord of references and famous actors (or those who would go on to be), and often had complex behind the scenes events that stopped some rather, ahem, fascinating moments making it to the final version. We found lots of nerdy spots in the first six films here.
This time out we look at the films featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation and choose 47 factoids. Granted, there's a lot more than that of interest, but we've tried for ones that you might not be aware of.
Oh, and there are some major spoilers...

Shows like "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" are harmless and fun until you think about what must go on backstage. Then it's creepy and terrifying and even more fun. Lifetime knows this and exploits it on their new series "UnREAL," which documents the behind-the-scenes freakiness of a "Bachelor"-type series. Scathing, right? The show premieres June 1 on Lifetime. That's "Roswell" and "Girls" alum Shiri Appleby as the grim producer. Here's hoping she lives up to the legacy of my favorite character in that category. »
