When director Roel Reine's shoot-em-up western Dead in Tombstone was filming in Romania last year, I got to visit the set along with a few other online reporters. The film stars Danny Trejo as the leader of a gang of outlaws who frees his half-brother (Anthony Michael Hall) from prison in order to loot a mining town. The plan backfires when Hall double crosses Trejo and kills him. Trejo makes a deal with the devil (Mickey Rourke) and comes back from the dead to seek revenge. As Patrick said in his Blu-ray review, "Dead in Tombstone has some really impressive stunts and set-pieces – from horse-drawn carriage flips to chandelier swings (classic!) and massive explosions – and they’re all staged and shot better than most Hollywood action fare. One particular explosion near the end looks impossibly large, though no CGI was used. Action fans will definitely want to check out this unique supernatural revenge thriller. »

Zombie Night, directed by John Gulager and starring Daryl Hannah, Anthony Michael Hall, Alan Ruck, and Shirley Jones, premieres on Syfy October 26th at 9/8 Central as part of the network's “31 Days of Halloween.” We have a teaser trailer for the film to share.
Gulager, director of the Feast franchise and the ill-fated Piranha 3Dd, pairs with Keith Allan and Delondra Williams, writers of last year’s Asylum-produced Rise of the Zombies and the recent Syfy original Ragin’ Cajun Redneck Gators, for this latest foray into walking dead territory starring a former movie mermaid, a guy who has already dealt with “The Dead Zone,” Ferris Bueller’s best friend, and a 1970’s singing TV mom.
Look for what will most likely be the gorier unrated version on DVD/Blu-ray December 10th from The Asylum - Gaiam.

Is there anyone on Hannibal not getting professional help?!
It’s a fair question, especially in light of news that NBC’s sublime psychological thriller has tapped TV vet Martin Donovan (Weeds, Boss) to play Jack Crawford’s (Laurence Fishburne) therapist at the FBI.
The potentially recurring gig will start early into Hannibal‘s second season (slated to premiere at midseason).

The question isn't when "Dexter" will end. The question is how.
The series that has made a hero of a serial killer of criminals begins its eighth and final season Sunday, June 30, on Showtime ... and it has changed its game so many times during its run, it's anyone's guess as to the ultimate fate of forensics expert Dexter Morgan (played by Michael C. Hall). And, for that matter, of his protective-to-a-fault half sister Debra (Jennifer Carpenter).
Her discovery of his secret, lethal life at the end of Season 6 made Season 7 a wild ride, as she struggled to do her job as detective and spokeswoman for the Miami Police Department while not exposing his crimes. She ultimately had to make a phenomenally tough choice: Give him up or kill their boss, who finally had figured out the truth about Dexter. And as she typically has, Debra stayed on Dexter's side. »
If Syfy brings back "Defiance" for a second season (and judging by the initial numbers, that's looking more and more likely every day), it will have to happen without Michael Taylor. Taylor, who helped develop the series with Rockne S. O'Bannon, is leaving the show, according to Deadline.com. Details on his departure were not released. Fans are quite familiar with Taylor's work, which includes "Battlestar Galactica" and its spinoff, "Caprica." He also was a producer and writer for "The Dead Zone" not long after he wrapped up work on both "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and "Star Trek: Voyager." Taylor was twice nominated for a Hugo, first for the DS9 episode "The Visitor," and later for the "Battlestar Galactica" telemovie "Razor." He wrote six episodes of "Battlestar Galactica," including »
The fantastic Katie Sackhoff stars in the title role of this straight to DVD/VOD thriller. Sexy Evil Genius sees Nikki Franklyn (Sackhoff) invite a number of her ex’s to the same bar at the same time, and it looks as though spin the bottle isn’t on the cards. This is the feature length directorial debut of Shawn Piller, who has worked on shows such as The Dead Zone and Haven. Judging by the trailer, the film certainly feels like an episode of a TV show, and the film can’t even get the credits right, with a double ‘And’ making the cast list sound awkward when read aloud. Thankfully the cast is more than impressive with the likes of Seth Green, Harold Perrineau, William Baldwin, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Anthony Michael Hall.
Sexy Evil Genius is released in the Us on 9th April on DVD and via VOD. »
