Fall Television 2013 continued to be the Season of the Witch thanks to the success FX’s American Horror Story: Coven, featuring Jessica Lange as the vicious leader of a New Orleans coven of witches, and Lifetime and its series adaptation of the Melissa de la Cruz novel Witches of East End.

Here's something for your post-Halloween hangover. Imagine, it's 1985 and instead of Season of the Witch the filmmakers behind the budding Halloween series decided to stick with The Shape and deliver a third installment featuring Michael Myers.
We've got the trailer!
Actor Lane Hughes (You're Next, V/H/S, A Horrible Way to Die) teamed with director Jay Burleson to create a retro trailer envisioning what Halloween: Harvest of Souls would have looked like. Kudos to the gang for coming up with something that actually looks like a 20-year old VHS trailer. They've even got a cool tale explaining the history of their Halloween 3 to go along with it. Read the backstory and take a peek at the video.

Halloween III Season of the Witch is considered one of the franchises black eyes. But the thing is its not. Its actually a remarkably creepy Halloween themed pic that takes horror in a profoundly dark direction by placing young children in the seats of the victims. Halloween Resurrection now thats a black eye. Halloween III was the sleeper of the entire series overshadowed only by its two immediate predecessors. »
‘It’s Halloween, everyone’s entitled to one good scare.’
After 30 entries into HalloweenFest – Thn’s celebration of all things horror – I find myself under a great deal of pressure. After all, I did volunteer to write up the finest suspense film of all time, which quickly turned into a rundown of the whole damn franchise.
Yes, I’m a huge Halloween fan and own every film/version (good or bad). I even refuse to part with my gorgeous gatefold laserdisc of the original movie, despite no longer having a machine on which to play the bugger. When it comes to horror there’s no one I like to see dispatching wayward teens more than Michael Myers.
So after 30 horror-tastic days, it’s time to relive the night (all right, nights) he came home…
After 15 years locked away, psychopathic Michael Myers escapes and returns to the »

When Wes Craven signed a deal with New Line Cinemas to get A Nightmare on Elm Street made, he also signed over the movie name and any character likeness with the feeling that a sequel would probably never get put together. But the success of the movie was still ringing in the ears of Robert Shaye who pushed a sequel forward without the series creator, based on a script written by David Chaskin titled A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge.
Often referred to as the Top Gun of the series, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge is a movie that doesn't really feel like a genuine sequel to Craven's masterpiece as the pair have very little in common. The themes are different, »

Conceptually, a horror film should seem like a self-contained endeavor. One brainstorms for a neat idea to pull off a few scares on the audience through a tale filled with some ghouls, goblins, and other various ghastly figures that go bump in the night, the end. Film history and the ever-pervasive reality of box office rewards has dictated otherwise on plenty of occasions. Warranted or not from a story perspective, horror films, from slashers to ghost tales, have seen a near-incalculable number of sequels (and now prequels and reboots) ordered into production. It is doubtful even a scientific calculator could keep proper count of all the further installments developed from horror films.
Even though the fans’ common reflex is to proclaim a sequel’s dip in quality in relation to the first episode that does not entail that a sequel is not a good film in its own right. Every now and then, »

Witches are making quite the comeback on TV this fall. Vampires, werewolves, and zombies are all good and cool, but if you’re still missing The Secret Circle or Charmed, you’re in luck! Witches of East End is soapy drama at its best, mixing traditional romantic and familial dramas with a supernatural element. The pilot was [&hellip

It's the Season of the Witch on "American Horror Story: Coven" -- and these girls cast an intriguing spell.The FX horror series returns for its third incarnation tonight, switching gears from the aliens and possessions of "Asylum" to voodoo, potions and Big Easy enchantment.The third outing follows Zoe ("Ahs" alum Taissa Farmiga), who is shipped to an all-girls school in New Orleans after her first sexual experience goes horribly awry. This isn't any ordinary school though -- it's a school for witches, run by Cordelia Foxx (Sarah Paulson), daughter of the coven's "Supreme" (Jessica Lange, in full-on bitch mode).As fellow students, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe and Jamie Brewer all play off each other well -- and seeing them display their own unique powers promises an interesting dynamic ahead.While some of the set up feels a little like "X-Men" to me (Zoe's introduction is an R-rated version of Rogue, »

China's 2013 Huading Awards took place recently, naming the world's best entertainers. The results are bit surprising, since Nicolas Cage won the Best Global Actor award. Cage was definitely a top talent many years ago, appearing in such hits as "Leaving Las Vegas," "Face/Off" and "Con-Air." But since the, the actor lost everything and has been starring in "Ghost Rider 2," "Drive Angry," "Season of the Witch," "Bangkok Dangerous" and many other flops. Maybe these newer movies haven't hit China yet. Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman was named the Best Global Actress and Quentin Tarantino the Best Global Director. For some reason, Sam Worthington (Avatar) received the Best Global Action Movie Actor award and Booboo Stewart, who's best known for the last two "Twilight" movies, took home the Best Emerging Global Talent prize. * Lifetime achievement award (Jeremy Irons) * Best global actor in motion pictures (Nicolas Cage) * Best global actress in motion pictures (Nicole Kidman »
NBC has confirmed that two female actors will play pirates, alongside Brit actor Richard Coyle ("Prince Of Persia") as assassin 'Tom Lowe' opposite John Malkovich ("Shadow Of The Vampire") as 'Edward Teach' aka 'Blackbeard' in the upcoming NBC 'pirate' TV series "Crossbones".
Claire Foy ("Season Of The Witch") will play 'Kate', a Governor's daughter, now a pirate for Blackbeard and Tracy Ifeachor ("Doctor Who") will also play another female member of Blackbeard's formidable cut-throat crew.
"...it's 1715 on the Bahamian island of New Providence, the first functioning democracy in the Americas, where the diabolical pirate 'Edward Teach', aka 'Blackbeard' reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreant sailors.
Part shantytown, part marauder's paradise, this is a place like no other on earth - and a mounting threat to international commerce. »

Horror movies far too often abide by the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." These days it's no shock to see a sequel treading familiar ground. Whether the original director wants to return to his or her vision or a studio wants to strike gold twice, it's rare to see a sequel that really breaks the mold. But what's more exciting than a fresh take on an established franchise? We started thinking about all the times a sequel challenged our expectations and put together a list of our favorite sequels that veered from the course. They're nothing like their predecessors... and we love them for it!
Aliens The Predecessor: Ridley Scott's 1979 classic Alien was a tight, white-knuckled horror story set in space. Adrift in the galaxy, the crew of the Nostromo discover a derelict alien spacecraft and slowly, agonizingly discover just how screwed they really are. »

Review of Joe at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Nicolas Cage delivers his best performance in years with powerful drama Joe Nicolas Cage works. Well, he works a lot. There are forgettable studio blockbusters (The Croods, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Season of the Witch), low-budget pulp (Trespass and Stolen) and some fun supporting work (Kick-Ass) in-between. As a result, there’s never a moment when Cage’s hangdog facial expressions and anxious character ticks aren’t on-screen somewhere — like it or not. »
