If you're a fan of old school radio horror like The Weird Circle, Lights Out!, Sleep No More, The Hermit's Cave, there's a new treasure trove of horrific stories being told by some of today's best filmmakers and actors called Tales from Beyond the Pale that is just waiting to keep you up at night!
We've got an exclusive look at the artwork for this week's episode, Paul Solet's "The Conformation". Solet received numerous awards for his short films before writing and directing his highly lauded first feature, Grace, in 2008. Since its premiere at Sundance ‘09, where two men in the audience passed out from the intensity of the film, Grace has played at festivals all around the globe, including SXSW, Brussels, and Gerardmer, where it won the prestigious Prix du Jury.

With Glass Eye Pix’s audiophile-geared webisode series Tales From Beyond The Pale in full swing (see last news here), enthusiasts of old-school auteur storytelling can now experience writer/director Jeff Buhler’s contribution to the mix, This Oracle Moon, which launched this week. The Midnight Meat Train/Insanitarium scribe spoke with Fango about making the Tales series’ sole sci-fi installment, which reunites Hellboy duo Ron Perlman and Doug Jones. In This Oracle Moon, a rescue team of astronauts is dispatched to a distant moon in hopes of reclaiming survivors from an ill-fated exploratory mission sent six years prior. When no survivors are found, the rescuers turn their attention to the elusive creatures inhabiting the nearby hills for answers. »

Good news for John Carpenter fans, he's back and in full force. Aside from returning to the directors chair with the upcoming films 'The Ward' and 'Darkchylde', he's also putting on the producers hat for the forthcoming horror film 'The Hell Within'.
Variety is reporting that Carpenter has signed on as producer of the flick which will be filmed in the Amazon Jungle. Get out the mosquito spray and check your voodoo protection, this one could get rough!
With a script by Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train, Insanitarium), 'The Hell Within' focuses on a woman who goes on a quest into the heart of a Brazilian jungle to save a girl, only to discover that the girl was bait. Brazilian filmmaker Dennison Ramalho will direct. Barry Films is behind the film.

Today, we are excited to bring you a sweet-looking poster promoting the upcoming episode “British and Proud” from the new horror radio series Tales from Beyond the Pale. The series is a nice throwback to the classic horror radio shows of Alfred Hitchock, Orson Welles, and Peter Lorre. There will be ten episodes this season and each episode will only be available through their official website ($1.99 by Paypal or credit card), but will soon be downloadable from iTunes, Amazon, and other online retailers. “British and Proud” airs tomorrow and it’s from Simon Rumley whose new film Red White & Blue recently played at Fantastic Fest.
After the jump, I’ve included Gary Pullin’s new poster as well as the one he did last week for “Man on a Ledge” which was by Joe Maggio (Bitter Feast) with Vincent D’onofrio (Full Metal Jacket). Pullin is doing a poster for each of the ten episodes. »

“It was a difficult challenge I think at first, just because I had never done something like that,” actress Kiele Sanchez told Dread Central of her casting as ‘Stella Oleson’ last November during the principle photography of 30 Days of Night: Dark Days in Vancouver, Canada.
Bundled in a cold warehouse in Terminal City on the set of director Ben Ketai’s sequel to 2007’s hit 30 Days of Night (the sequel Dark Days bows direct-to-video from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on October 5), The Perfect Getaway actress was thoughtful regarding her assumption of the film’s lead character, as originally essayed by Melissa George, and spent time waxing on that as well as the other challenges inherent in portraying the character.
“I think that in the first graphic novel Stella starts off as so different (from the sequel) that it gave me a lot of freedom to sort of do it my own way, »

Internet nerds and comedy geeks were brought perilously close together a few days ago when The Daily Show introduced Attack of The Show’s Olivia Munn as the latest guest correspondent on Jon Stewart’s political comedy series. Munn showed up as the “Senior Asian Correspondent”, reporting on the disastrous Bp oil spill down in the Gulf of Mexico, and it’s probably not a coincidence that her debut bit was also one of the funniest we’ve seen on The Daily Show in months (which is saying something): Munn’s a gifted comedic actress– as she’s proven on G4’s Aots many times over. With that in mind– along with the brand-new NBC series, Perfect Couples, she has on the horizon, Collider’s Scott Wampler talked with Olivia to get to the bottom of her awesomeness. Read it for yourselves after the jump…
