Sarah digs into the post-Angel careers of David Boreanaz, Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Charisma Carpenter and more...

It’s been about a decade since the last episode of Angel, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off series about the vampire with a soul, aired. The final episode of season five, Not Fade Away, first appeared on Us television screens on 19 May 2004. That seems simultaneously like a very long time ago, and not very long ago at all, because time is vast and human brains are small and fallible, but it’s safe to say that in TV years, it’s a pretty long goddamned time.

The men and women behind the characters we used to spend one night a week with have gone on to other things – some bigger and better, others kind of rubbish – and unless you’re a particularly obsessive superfan, you

Review: Medium Raw (DVD)

  • DailyDead
Do you remember the first story that scared you? That story that still sends prickles down your back and creeps into your dreams at night. The one that makes you feel silly for being scared because you’re all grown up. Maybe it was about a witch that ate the children she lured with candy.

Or maybe it was it was the one about a wolf that ate the grandmothers of children that walked alone in the woods. Do you ever wonder how those stories came about, if they were based on a true story? What if big bad wolves were really inspired by people like your creepy neighbor?

Who doesn’t like a good fairy tale? They seem to be making a comeback; with this year’s Red Riding Hood, and 2012 hopefuls Snow White and the Huntsman and Tarsem Singh’s untitled Snow White movie, we shouldn’t be

Medium Raw and a Wolf's Delight: A Movie Review

Director/writer: Andrew Cymek.

Cast: William B. Davis, John Rhys-Davies, Mercedes McNab, and Brigitte Kingsley.

Medium Raw aka Medium Raw: Night of the Wolf is a Canadian shot horror film. This feature was shown on television in 2010, with Anchor Bay Entertainment set to release this title on DVD August 16th. The film retells the ancient German legend of Little Red Riding Hood with a twist. Horror is always great for twist endings. Actor John Rhys-Davies is under utilized in his role and the updating of this children's tale is enhanced by the costume department. As well, Medium Raw introduces not one villain, but four. This is a slow building horror title, with some interesting action sequences in the final scenes.

This is the second film which has offed actor John Rhys-Davies in the first quarter of the film. The other film was Ferocious Planet (2011) and here Rhys-Davies plays Elliot Carbon.

Medium Raw: Night of the Wolf, the latest serial killer thriller from the good people of Anchor Bay, will be issued on DVD on Aug. 16 for a list price of $22.98.

There's a killer on the loose in Medium Raw: Night of the Wolf.

Filmmaker Andrew Cymek is the triple-threat writer/director/star of the movie, which tells the story of a rookie cop (Cymek) who’s plagued by nightmares of his sister’s death at the hands of a serial killer years earlier. That the killer was never captured doesn’t help! But while investigating a recent murder with similarities to that of his sister’s, Johnny and his partner snap into action and capture the culprit, known as “The Wolf.” Sadly, a happy ending is put on hold due to a subsequent power outage at the local asylum housing “The Wolf” and a bunch of other psychos, resulting in their escape.

Davis ("X-Files") John Rhys Davies ("Lord of the Rings"), Mercedes McNab ("Buffy The Vampire Slayer") and WWE stars Jay Reso/Andrew "Test" Martin.

Brigitte promised Andrew that if he wrote something, she would produce it. Flash forward a few years and the newlyweds have just spent their honeymoon money on the opening scenes of what will become 'Medium Raw'..."

"Where there is a will, there is a way and I am nothing if not persistent," said Kingsley, who not only starred in and produced "Medium Raw", but is now head of production at Black Walk.
