Grimm Episode 222
“Goodnight, Sweet Grimm”
Directed By: Norberto Barba
Original Airdate: 21 May 2013
In This Episode...
Let’s start in Austria. Frau Pech is mixing up a heinous-looking elixir. She has a bellhop dose Adalind’s room service, then sneaks in when Adalind passes out. Frau Pech draws some spinal fluid from Adalind, then puts it in her elixer (from a box marked “Doppelganger”) and drinks it. This switches the women’s bodies. Pech is now the crumpled woman on the floor, while Adalind is awake and plotting. This only swaps the outward appearance; the woman on the floor is still the one with the fetus. Stefania calls “Adalind” and asks her to meet. She has figured out a way to get her powers back. “Adalind” meets with her, and Stefania lays out the plan. She eats up the details hungrily - then Stefania enacts the plan. »

"Surrender within 24 hours, or watch this world suffer the consequences." Out of nowhere, one more threat from Michael Shannon as villain General Zod has surfaced in a trailer for Man of Steel. With a whole slew of new footage featuring the alien villain threatening Earth and the last son of Krypton, this trailer is even better than the full length trailer that came out about a month ago. Shannon might give Benedict Cumberbatch a run for his money as best villainous performance in this year's summer blockbusters. This trailer delivers all the action fans have wanted from a Superman movie for decades. Watch the trailer now! Here's the new trailer for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel from Warner Bros. Pictures: Man of Steel, the new DC Comics Superman reboot, is being directed by Zack Snyder, of Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen & Sucker Punch previously. Christopher Nolan is producing, and »

We're starting to get into Man of Steel overload territory, so we're going to slow down the hype. But these two new character posters, following yesterday's spotlight on Russell Crowe as Jor-El looking like a bad ass on his own poster, are just too cool to ignore. Superman and General Zod each stand tall, but while The Big Blue Boy Scout played by Henry Cavill looks heroic, the menacing villain brought to life by Michael Shannon seems to be in restraints. While we're getting a lot of posters for this comic book film, we're just happy that Warner Bros. isn't so desperate to give Lois Lane (Amy Adams) her own poster like this. Look! Here are the two new posters for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel via ComingSoon: Man of Steel, the new DC Comics Superman reboot, is being directed by Zack Snyder, of Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen & Sucker Punch previously. »

Kicking off what will likely be a series of posters leading up to the release of Man of Steel, a new character poster has arrived featuring Russell Crowe looking quite intimidating as Kal-El's father Jor-El. We've heard Crowe's voice on nearly all of the trailers and TV spots, and this puts him front and center, seemingly ready for a fight. We're not sure how much action Jor-El will see in the film before he sends Superman to Earth, but since the character has his own poster, that implies there's a good amount. Again, the lens flare is prominent, and we're still wondering if this will be akin to J.J. Abrams use of the light element in Star Trek. Here's the new character poster for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel from Warner Bros. Pictures: Man of Steel, the new DC Comics Superman reboot, is being directed by Zack Snyder, of Dawn of the Dead, »

Now that we've seen a big chunk of footage in the form of spectacular full trailers and some stunning TV spots, it's time to dive behind the scenes of Man of Steel, the promising return of Superman directed by Zack Snyder. This new featurette features some awesome new footage along with interviews with Clark Kent and Superman himself, Henry Cavill, along with the aforementioned filmmaker, his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder, The Dark Knight trilogy producer Charles Roven and co-stars including Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne and more. Watch it! Here's the featurette for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel from Walmart: And here are the two new banners from Man of Steel, via ComingSoon: Man of Steel, the new DC Comics Superman reboot, is being directed by Zack Snyder, of Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen & Sucker Punch previously.

It's somewhat only appropriate that there are a lot — a lot — of zombie movies, as there are usually a lot of zombies (they tend to travel in hordes, ya know). For better and worse, the overcrowded (or is it overrun?) genre probably has at least ten times as many absurd installments as it does classics like "Night of the Living Dead" and "Dawn of the Dead."
And why not, really? Zombie movies are fun and cheap to make and they make themselves right at home in any scenario, whether it be in the 'hood or on a plane or in Nazi Germany or the halls of a high school.
Peruse our collection of some of the greatest examples of cinematic zombie foolishness. And keep in mind that this is probably only the beginning. »

Director Sarah Polley takes her personal exploration as a filmmaker inward to her family tree with Stories We Tell, a thoroughly delightful documentary about a secret buried by time. Using her own family members as subjects, Polley uses the contradicting stories of her relatives to uncover a bigger truth about storytelling, and the unbreakable bond of family despite life’s many surprises.
This is Polley’s first documentary, as she has previously directed narrative features the extremely good Take This Waltz last year with Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, and Luke Kirby, and also Away From Her, with Julie Christie and Gordon Pinsent. She has more credits in front of the camera, with an acting filmography that includes Splice, Dawn of the Dead, Go, eXistenZ, and The Sweet Hereafter.
I sat down with Polley to talk about her film, in an exclusive interview that she described as “a whole bunch of weird-ass questions, »

Onwards and upwards as they say. Well, Henry Cavill’s career will certainly do that in more ways than one with the release of Warner Bros. reboot of the DC comic-book character Kal-El, or to give him his more familiar moniker, Superman. Visionary director Zack Snyder, the man who gave us an impressive line-up of Dawn Of The Dead, 300, Watchmen and Sucker Punch (the latter in perversion-only perhaps?), is the man tasked with breathing new life into the Kryptonian Man Of Steel.
We’ve had promotional goodies galore over the last few days with awesome posters, brilliant banners and jaw-dropping footage featured on the pages of Thn. Just be sure to explore our articles as you may just have missed out on some cracking material. But wait. Before you do, feast your eyes on fantastic new footage in featurettes centring on our hero’s speed, strength and high-flying abilities!

We have all come to love Sarah Polley as an actress in films such as The Sweet Hereafter, Exotica and Zack Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead, but in the past few years she has proven to be as big a talent behind the camera as she is in front of it. While many actors can have an awkward time going from acting in a movie to directing one, Polley made one of the most confident and assured feature-length directorial debuts with Away From Her, which earned its star Julie Christie an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Polley then went on to direct last year’s Take This Waltz which starred Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen as a married couple that wonders if they’re truly satisfied with the state of their relationship.
Polley’s latest film as a director is Stories We Tell, and it also marks »

"Can you imagine how people on this planet would react if they knew there was someone like this out there?" The previous Man of Steel trailers have highlighted Clark Kent's struggle with his alien powers and whether or not he should reveal his secret to humankind, beginning with saving his classmates in a school bus accident. Now this new TV spot highlights this same struggle as a grown man, with military cautiously pointing their arms at him, and Pa Kent (Kevin Costner) explaining the eventual ultimatum, "whether to stand proud in front of the human race, or not." Every little new bit in these spots just keeps looking better. Here's the new TV spot for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel from the Warner Bros. Pictures: Here's another new TV spot that just showed up today as well: Man of Steel, the new DC Comics Superman reboot, is being directed by Zack Snyder, »

State of Emergency is a beginner zombie horror film. In fact its probably the lightest approach (outside of horror comedy) Ive seen in the zombie subgenre. Although technically only infected with a biotoxin those infected prey on the uninfected with the same tenacious resolve as the Dawn of the Dead remake and share the same crazed look as those from 28 Days Later. Although we can dub them biotoxin zombies this is only about half a zombie movie. »
Chicago – Much to the chagrin of practically everyone I know, the idea of “relaxing” is a bit…underwhelming (which is probably the point). Even with the crash of the waves, warm sand, girls in bikinis, surfing, snorkeling, and the ability to re-enact those Corona beer commercials, well, not to sound ungrateful to the Barbadoses and Bermudas of the world, I’d be bored in 10 minutes. But if you give me an arcade, or a golf course, or a football, or, well, thousands of undead zombies, as is the case in “Dead Island: Riptide” suddenly we have ourselves a ball game.
Video Game Rating: 4.0/5.0
“Dead Island: Riptide” is the sequel / expansion / upgrade to 2011’s “Dead Island”; a game that was the Frank Abagnale of a game’s mouth writing checks it’s ass couldn’t cash. By now most gamers know the story: an incredible trailer was released, played in reverse, »

I’m just going to say it: George Romero’s Day Of The Dead is by Far my favorite of the original dead trilogy of his. Sure Night Of The Living Dead is awesome, and we all know that its sequel, Dawn Of The Dead is the bee’s knees. With all of that being said, it was Day Of The Dead that for odd reason, always seemed to resonate with me. Maybe it’s the complete downer vibe that runs throughout the whole film, maybe it’s my love for Joe Pilato’s performance as Captain Rhodes..or c’mon, let’s be honest here: it has what the first two dead films lacked: Bub!!
Well, thanks to the folks at the ever-reliable Scream Factory, the official key art for their Day Of The Dead Bluray coming out this year has now found its way online and into the minds of us Romero fans. »
I have come to the conclusion that either James Franco can do everything, or he can do nothing. Franco certainly has a high estimation of his own abilities. Now it appears that he’s got at least one big name who thinks he can act. Wim Wenders has cast Franco as the main character in his latest foray into 3D drama Everything Will Be Fine.
Franco will play Tomas, a man who accidentally kills a child with his car following a domestic quarrel. The event has a profound effect on the rest of Tomas’s existence as he struggles to come to terms with the accident. Sarah Polley (Splice, Dawn of the Dead) has likewise been attached.
Wenders calls Everything Will Be Fine ‘a story of guilt and forgiveness.’ The premise itself has been done before – it sounds an awful lot like 21 Grams – but of course it has not been »

Nick Lyon, who previously directed the Ving Rhames starring Zombie Apocalypse, returns the the land of the living dead with Rise of the Zombies, another Syfy channel original movie that tells the story of a group of survivors holed up in Alcatraz, well away from the zombie plague. However when their island refuge is overrun by the undead they take the risk of heading back to the mainland to find a scientist who is rumored to have found a cure for the disease.
From the very opening of Rise of the Zombies you know that this film is going to be different. First off there is a solid explanation for the existence of the undead – in this case a virus has »

So far. filmmaker Zack Snyder's made a zombie movie ("Dawn Of The Dead"), a glossy testosterone-addled swords and sandals epic ("300"), an ironic, deconstructed super hero film (which isn't that ironic or deconstructed, but whatever, let him have fun with words; "Watchmen") and a fantasy-filled femme fatales music video ("Sucker Punch"). Curiously, Snyder calls a movie about an alien who comes from another planet, is fostered by human beings and then grows up to be a god, only to see his new adopted planet become besieged by overlords from his former home, "the most realistic movie I’ve made.” Of course he's talking about his latest picture, the Superman film, "Man Of Steel." Is it the influence of Christopher Nolan, screenwriter David S. Goyer, and producers Charles Roven ("The Dark Knight Rises") and Emma Thomas ("Inception," most of Nolan's films)? Or maybe it's just the material and Snyder knows he »

Zombie Squash is now available for free on iOS devices and stars the legendary George A. Romero as Dr. B.E. Vil, an evil scientist with plans to take over the world with some rowdy undead veggies!
We recently chatted with the game’s creator, Attila Juhasz, about bringing this undead project to life. Read on to learn more.
Amanda Dyar: Tell us a little about yourself and Acw Games/Attila's Creative Works LLC.
Attila Juhasz: I'm creatively obsessed. (chuckles) I love to create and am most happy when I write, design, program, produce or compose. Having a jack-of-all-trades personality lead me to start Acw Games, a division of Attila's Creative Works LLC, which I formed in 2005. All my passions culminate in the creation of a game.

Typically, horror fans go crazy for fright flicks with a body count totaling in the double digits, or higher. Case in point, Dawn of the Dead has a reported death toll of 175; Army of Darkness has an estimated 107 total kills (both statistics from moviebodycounts.com); and both films are tried and true fan favorites for their liberal use of violence as well as countless other reasons. We enthusiastically commend George Romero and Sam Raimi for offering up a staggering body counts in these and many of their other films. We frequently pay tribute to horror films and horror killers that rack up above average kill counts, but it’s rare that we make a point to recognize characters that made a major impact on us without incurring a massive death toll. With that said, we have elected to take the opportunity to spotlight some killers and their corresponding films that »

Rob Zombie has continually been a director whose works have divided the horror community, “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects” having found lovers and haters in roughly equal numbers (his “Halloween” remake and its bizarre sequel mainly the latter). His latest effort, “The Lords of Salem” is sure to do the same, though perhaps for different reasons, a full-on piece of satanic madness with a focus firmly on atmosphere and shocks rather than sense, packed full of the usual parade of familiar genre faces, including (inevitably) the director’s wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, plus Ken Foree (“Dawn of the Dead”), Dee Wallace (“The Howling”), Judy Geeson (“Inseminoid”), Meg Foster (“They Live”) and a long list of others. Sheri Moon Zombie plays Heidi, a recovering drug addict DJ working at a popular rock radio station in Salem with her colleagues Herman Whitey Salvador (Jeffry Daniel Philips, “Halloween 2 »

Review Paul Martinovic 2 May 2013 - 06:47
Pedro Almodovar’s appearance on The Graham Norton Show last week to promote I’m So Excited! caused a number of startled cineastes to spit out their popcorn/dummies in dismay, as if by agreeing to appear on a late-night show with one of our most prominent mainstream presenters were in itself an act tantamount to cultural treason. What’s next, Steve Reich on Steve Wright In The Afternoon? Cormac McCarthy on The One Show?
This kind of cinematic snobbery is to be expected, of course, but those who insist on applying it to Almodovar are missing the point somewhat – sure, he's a gifted, politically conscious film-maker, a keen stylist and absolutely worthy of the auteur label and all that it implies, but he »
