Nerdist Industries has debuted a fall show perfect for this Halloween season. The company acquired by Legendary Entertainment premiered a new episode of The Real Housewives of Horroron October 30, 2014, with special guest star Chris Hardwick. Created by Kevin Pereira (from G4’s Attack of the Show) and Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), The Real Housewives of Horror parodies all those reality TV shows about the daily lives and “struggles” of rich housewives. However, the web series takes on a decidedly darker yet more comedic angle as the women in Nerdist’s version are all married to or interested in monsters, killers, or demonic spirits. In the newest episode “Dawn of the Dawn: The Dawnening,” Grant’s character Heather decides to host a speed-dating night for her friend Barbara Dawn (Brooke Seguin), who’s just getting over the death of her late, hatchet-wielding husband Cage Trollman. Barbara meets several eligible men, including »

AMC has hired a director to take on The Walking Dead companion series they are developing. Adam Davidson will direct the pilot episode and help develop this separate story that will follow a different group of survivors. Davidson is a very talented individual who won an Oscar in 1991 for a short film he directed called "The Lunch Date." Since then has worked on a ton of high profile TV series such as Community, Fringe, True Blood, Rome, Dexter, Deadwood, and Lost. He's not a new face around AMC either, as he's worked with them on shows such a as Turn: Washington’s Spies, Low Winter Sun, and Hell on Wheels. The guy is more than qualified to take on this new Walking Dead series.
The new show will be set in the same zombie world as the current TV series, but it will feature a whole new group of »

For Halloween, we celebrate The Simpsons' best Treehouse Of Horror stories, feat. zombies, Hitchcock and Kubrick spoofs and more...
“Nothing seems to bother my kids but tonight's show, which I totally wash my hands of, is really scary.”
For anyone who grew up watching The Simpsons, the Treehouse Of Horror Halloween specials are an annual horror staple, from spooky couch gag to horror-themed credits. You can learn an awful lot of things just from watching the show, but for younger audiences, these episodes gave us our introduction to certain iconic horror stories.
Having ditched the early framing device of the family telling scary stories to one another, with Springfielders cast in key roles, the format is now closer to a mini-anthology of terror with three stories that take place outside of canon. This has usually given the writers licence to be more gruesome and outlandish than in the regular series, »
In America, Halloween is a fun day, an excuse for a party and a close third behind Thanksgiving and Christmas when it comes to annual celebrations. In Britain, it's more a case of shutting your curtains and hoping that the kids down the road don't egg your windows.
But that negative approach to Halloween needs to end now. What we lack in pumpkins and parties, we can make up for with an evening of hiding under the duvet with scary TV shows.
While there might not be much actual horror programming on October 31 (although a new series of Citizen Khan on BBC One is frightening us in a different way), a quick delve into the world of Netflix (other streaming services are available, yadda, yadda) means that there are frights and thrills on tap for anyone who wants to get into the spooky spirit of things.
Here are 11 spine-chilling treats »

Actor Brad Carter has been around for a long time and you’ve likely seen him getting beat up or killed in most major television programs over the past few years. His meatiest role to date was his breakout performance as inmate Charlie Lange on HBO’s True Detective. I spoke with Carter about his brain surgery that was broadcast live on the internet to millions, his current role on Sons of Anarchy, Black Mass with Johnny Depp and much more. The first time I remember seeing Brad Carter was in the season five premiere of Dexter. In that great episode, which I consider the last truly superb hour of that series, Dexter Morgan breaks his serial killer code to murder a man in a bar who pushes him over the edge. Dexter winds up smashing a man's head to smithereens in a bathroom brawl. That »

We’ve known for a while that The Walking Dead was getting a companion series. The further details of this project have remained a mystery since the show was announced, though.
Speculation has been rife as to the central plot of the spin-off – will we see another group of survivors in the wild, a group of top scientists searching, a cure or a military view on proceedings or something else entirely? There’s currently no clues either way.
Today though, we learnt who will be helming the show’s pilot episode. Adam Davidson, who picked up the Best Live Action Short Film Oscar for The Lunch Date in 1991, will direct the show’s premiere outing.
Things are starting to gear up for AMC's upcoming companion series to "The Walking Dead," as Deadline brings word that Academy Award winner Adam Davidson has been brought on to helm the pilot episode of the new series. Davidson won the Best Live Action Short Film Oscar back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and has gone on to direct countless episodes of television including "Lost," "Deadwood," "Dexter," "Rome," "True Blood," "Fringe," "Community," and even AMC's own "Hell on Wheels" and "Turn: Washington's Spies." »
AMC’s The Walking Dead companion series just locked a director for the pilot episode and he’s an Academy Award winner! Adam Davidson snagged the Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and, ever since, he’s been racking up TV credits. He’s worked on a slew of shows including Lost, Deadwood, Dexter, True Blood, Fringe, Big Love, Masters of Sex and so many more. Davidson is expected to start shooting his Walking Dead companion series episode late this year. Hit the jump for more on the show and Davidson. It’s times like this that I wish I had paid closer attention to who’s directing what episode of my favorite TV shows, but sadly, I can’t remember what went down in Davidson’s episodes of Friday Night Lights, Hell on Wheels or Six Feet Under. However, he did just »

NBC is staging a Dexter reunion. Former Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter is teaming with Sara Colleton to adapt former Los Angeles Times writer Erika Hayasaki's book Death Class: A True Story About Life for NBC, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Read more TV's Remake Craze: Who Gets the Money and Owns the Rights?

John Constantine‘s business cards read “Exorcist, Demonologist and Master of the Dark Arts” — and all three of those vocations get a workout in NBC’s new drama based on the popular DC Comics character.
After decades in the Hellblazer comics and one ill-fated run at the big screen, Constantine makes his TV debut Friday (10/9c). Welsh actor Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, The Tudors) plays the trenchcoated demon whisperer, a tortured con man who’d prefer to abandon his occult work but feels compelled to help those who need him most.
Video Exclusive Sneak Peek: Constantine Gets Some »
I didn't believe a second of NBC's Constantine, adapted from DC Comics' Hellblazer series. That might seem a strange complaint given that the story concerns an exorcist/demonologist (Matt Ryan) who travels the world, battling demons who've possessed innocent mortals while trying to right a tragic mistake. It must be a tone thing and a performance thing: The show's got the atmosphere and visuals things nailed down.As directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) and overseen by executive producers Daniel Cerone (Dexter, The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer (Dark City, and way too many comics adaptations to list here), the first installment, which airs Friday night at 10 p.m., doesn't lack for production value. Possessed people swing and twirl through the air, hordes of cockroaches skitter, the ground opens up, the sky goes dark with purplish cumulus clouds, and a horned demon lunges from a hellmouth, »

In addition to her acting credits, Little & Ashley, her band with husband,Marcus Ashley, will release their first full-length album, Dreamy Happy Sexy, in November. »

There’s plenty of future teases and neat plot advancements in this week’s Gotham. Here’s Rob’s review of Viper…
This review contains spoilers.
Utilising Gotham’s continuing ability to show signs of trouble one week and huge heaps of potential the next, Viper was an episode with lots to enjoy. It was certainly a huge advancement and a welcome change from the central-plot-lite and real-estate-heavy Arkham of last week.
Impressing us again was Salvatore Maroni, played with poker-faced menace by David Zayas. While Falcone has seemed a bit distant throughout, Gotham’s second-highest-ranking mob boss truly ramped up the fear-inducing/genuinely threatening stakes this week. His dialogue is calm and collected, but his actions explain why so many fear him. It’s certainly a strong supporting performance from the Dexter, Grimm and The Expendables alumnus.
For a world of brutal gangs, Maroni’s blasé request for »
It's a tale of two A-list replacements: Dexter star Michael C. Hall put on some makeup for Hedwig and the Angry Inch and kicked up $544,166 for his first six performances, according to figures from the Broadway League for the week ending Oct. 19. That's down just 4 percent per-show from what Andrew Rannells took in during his final seven shows the previous week—but it still represents an impressive 85 percent of the potential gross for the Belasco Theatre. But another high-profile substitution proved less successful: Carol Burnett, returning to Broadway for the first time in a decade, failed to lift ticket sales »

★★★☆☆After dabbling satisfyingly with horror in his three features so far, director Jim Mickle adopts a decidedly different pace with Cold in July (2014), a violent crime thriller adapted from Joe R. Lansdale's novel of the same name. In his first major role since TV's Dexter plunged his knife for the final time, Michael C. Hall makes a welcome return to the big screen, demonstrating how his collected and effortlessly engaging manner can lift even the most average material. Set in East Texas in 1989, Hall plays Richard Done, a mulleted, mild-mannered everyman and devoted husband and father, whose moderate life takes a dramatic turn when, after being awoken one night, he fatally shoots a burglar in his home.

Spoiler alert: In the Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em," Leland (Brad Carter) and the Aryan Brotherhood made a return appearance to have a fistfight with Samcro, view the corpses of the ambushed East Dub crew, and taste-test the Mayan heroin that Tully (Marilyn Manson) is going to now distribute in Stockton under Jax's (Charlie Hunnam) new plan. Viewers may recognize the Texas-born, Georgia-raised Carter, who'd auditioned to play an Irish biker on Sons years ago, from HBO's True Detective—he played Ab inmate Charlie Lange. "Fortunately and unfortunately, these kind of characters seem to be in my wheelhouse. »
