High school can be hell, especially for outcasts targeted by cliques with malevolent mischief on their minds.

Ahead of the Blu-ray's release, we have trailers and clips from both films, including the iconic blood-drenched prom queen crowning and Rachel's glass-shattering house party interruption.

NBC launched Anna Friel on an American Odyssey this Sunday night — will you keep tagging along for the ride?

The midseason drama stars Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Sergeant Odelle Ballard, an American soldier who, in the midst of an unplanned takedown of Al Qaeda’s top commander, stumbles across enormously volatile intel — the transfer of $30 million from the American company “Soc” to a terrorist cell. Soon afterwards, private military contractors, Osela, arrive to take out Odelle’s entire unit, though she secretly survives, the only witness to the massacre. »

American Odyssey Ep Talks Epic Origin, 'Fierce' Anna Friel, 24 Comparisons

3 April 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When NBC’s Odyssey recently tweaked its title to American Odyssey, some joked that the ancient Greek poet Homer had filed suit for trademark infringement.

But make no mistake, the midseason thriller (premiering Sunday at 10/9c) is inspired by the epic poem.

American Odyssey Review – TV NBC

2 April 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Much as the horror genre is deeply rooted in the evolving culture that creates it, NBC‘s latest “action-drama,” American Odyssey, builds itself from the conspiracy fears that are now equally laughed off and assumed to be obviously true.

Sgt. Odelle Ballard (Anna Friel, “Pushing Daisies”) is part of a group that stumbles upon an Al Qaeda’s top commander, but she quickly discovers intel that suggests an American corporation is funding the group. A private military company comes to clean up, and Odelle’s company is killed to cover things up. She escapes, but now she’s on the run, and a long way from home, and doesn’t have anyone she can trust.

Meanwhile, back at home, former U.S. Attorney Peter Decker (Peter Facinelli) is in the middle of a merger with the same company that apparently funded the jihadists, and he starts to put the pieces »

Five-0's Chi McBride: Grover Makes Waves With an Unpopular Hunch

2 April 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Though the weather is a marked upgrade from, say, where Human Target was filmed (“It only rains twice a year in Vancouver: once for five months, one for four,” he quips), Hawaii Five-0‘s idyllic setting is almost inconsequential to Chi McBride‘s enjoyment of his latest TV role.

“I’m always having a good time doing a show. Well, I take that back — there was one time I didn’t,” the veteran actor reports with a chuckle (and without naming names). “But I like to have fun, man. Because at the end of the day, we’re not pulling »

TV Review: ‘American Odyssey’

2 April 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC describes “American Odyssey” as “’Traffic’-like,” which might explain the lack of inspiration permeating this multi-pronged drama, which, much like sibling USA’s “Dig,” hinges on a vast (and tedious) conspiracy. The intersecting threads involve a U.S. soldier in North Africa, a corporate lawyer and an Occupy-type political activist, each embroiled in a monstrous plot reaching up and into government. First-rate casting — including Anna Friel, Peter Facinelli and Treat Williams — can’t obscure the been-there, seen-that sensation, which doesn’t spur much curiosity about how these tentacles connect or offer much hope the show will last long enough to find out.

Friel (“Pushing Daisies”) plays the soldier, Sgt. Odelle Ballard, who while on a mission in Mali pursuing a wanted terrorist stumbles across computer files revealing a major corporation is providing money to the Jihadists. When she offers an inkling of what she has learned to higher-ups — namely, »

'Hannibal' Season 3 Episode and Director Details Unveiled

24 March 2015 6:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that Season 3 of Hannibal will debut on NBC June 4. NBC revealed back in January that they were pushing the show to debut in the summer, instead of the spring like the first seasons, but it seems the extended wait will be well worth it. Series creator Bryan Fuller took to his Twitter account earlier this week to share a number of intriguing details about this upcoming season, along with the directors for four of the 13 episodes.

Bryan Fuller made all of these revelations after asking the fans on his Twitter page to vote for his earlier series Pushing Daisies in an online poll of which beloved but short-lived shows should come back. After Pushing Daisies beat out Firefly in the final round, Bryan Fuller started releasing Hannibal tidbits, first revealing that the Season 3 premiere, "Antipasto", "will take place over four different periods of time."

NBC’s Odyssey Retitled American Odyssey On Eve Of Debut

13 March 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

NBC has tweaked the title of its upcoming drama Odyssey less than a month before its premiere, renaming the show American Odyssey.

Though the network declined to comment on what spurred the name change, sources close to the production say the new title better reflects the arduous journey of protagonist Odelle (Anna Friel), an American soldier beset by enemies on all sides as she attempts to return to her friends and family in New York.

Of course, the more cynical answer is that NBC execs weren’t living under a rock in January, when American Sniper stormed the box office and racked up Oscar nominations. Renaming the show American Odyssey may make the series more palatable to the same right-leaning audiences that sent Sniper soaring.

The transformation in NBC’s advertising campaign, tied in with the name-change, is quite startling. Whereas Friel’s protagonist was before on her knees, with her hands bound, »

Carrie (2002) / The Rage: Carrie 2 Blu-ray Double Feature Release Details Revealed

25 February 2015 1:36 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Sometimes, high school can be a virtual hell. Mileage varies by the individual, of course, but in a place where acceptance at a lunch table can be akin to finding an oasis in a desert, there's more weight on the shoulders of many teens than just their backpack straps. Such is the case for Ewen High School student Carrie White, the telekinetic titular character of Stephen King's seminal debut novel published in 1974.

Carrie has been adapted for the screen multiple times for multiple generations, and Scream Factory is giving the Generation Y versions a high-definition upgrade, with their Carrie and The Rage: Carrie 2 double feature Blu-ray now set to hit shelves with an official release date and bonus features, including two new audio commentaries.

Get A Double Dose of Carrie When Scream Factory Releases Carrie/The Rage: Carrie 2 To Bluray This April!!

25 February 2015 12:08 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Don’t we all love us some telekinetic teenage angst? The gang over at Scream Factory certainly do, and are set unleash a double dose of Carrie White onto Bluray, when the double feature of 2002’s Angela Bettis-led Carrie adaption and Kat Shea’s 1999 Carrie sequel, The Rage: Carrie 2 hits shelves on April 14th. While last year saw yet another adaption of Stephen King’s classic novel, the 2002 version was a lot closer to the source material and though nothing will top Brian De Palma’s 1976 Carrie, the Bettis-led version is quite entertaining. Plus, with scenes like seeing one of the kids from Home Improvement getting his balls impaled in The Rage: Carrie 2, what’s not to like about that one?
