Kimberly Levin, a biochemist and playwright, makes her feature directorial debut with Runoff, starring Joanne Kelly of Warehouse 13, and the film looks fantastic. This first Runoff trailer is all I need to see to mark this movie as a must-see. Kelly plays a woman trapped between harsh economic realities and a tempting offer that could […]

Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.
"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into »

Three years ago right around this time, I was lamenting the fact that there was a sad, sad lack of comics and genre fashion merchandise geared towards women. At the time, my experience was that the available clothing for women to purchase and wear was mostly t-shirts, only some of which were actually fitted for or geared towards women. And accessories of the sort women might be interested in, like jewelry or handbags or less manly wallets, were mostly available only via Etsy or through other fan enterprises.
Generally speaking, what was available via licensed merchandisers was also lacking in the style, flair, subtlety, or imagination that I’d have really liked to see in female comics fashion. Despite being a fan of the comfort of a cute tee shirt, there are times when I’d prefer to be able to let fly the flag of my geek pride with »

Episcopalian Christian minister Daniel Webster has a special relationship with Jesus Christ, in that he can literally see and talk to him. Daniel’s life is difficult and not even visitations from the son of God are enough to assuage his pain, which has him addicted to narcotic painkillers. The series begins a year after one of his twin sons has departed from suffering from leukemia. This event may’ve been the cause of Daniel’s drug intake and also why his wife is a functioning alcoholic. They have »

Sony Pictures TV has cooked up a new take on the supernatural for a new television series based on the unusual friendship between famous magician-illusionist Harry Houdini and prolific author Arthur Conan Doyle. Dubbed Houdini And Doyle, the 10-episode series has been sold to a number of global parties, including Fox (Us), ITV (UK) and Shaw Media (Canada). As part of the deal struck with the networks, the show will go straight to series.
The creative team behind the cerebral genre romp share a heft of TV experience. Creator of The Librarian franchise David Titcher, House creator David Shore and House writer-producer David Hoselton concocted the idea, and are developing the show. All three are set to executive produce, with Titcher and Hoselton on scripting duties.
Here’s an overview of the series as described by Deadline:

When Lady Sif last appeared on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it was right before the big twist where it was revealed that S.H.I.E.L.D. was full of Hydra agents, and Coulson and Co. were forced to go underground. Perhaps that’s why this week’s return of Lady Sif felt in no small way like the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. of old, the more procedural and leisurely paced S.H.I.E.L.D. of season one that was more than happy to rest on its laurels. Despite the concern an assessment like that may invoke, there was something charming about the brief glimpse at the S.H.I.E.L.D. of old, especially since the mythology of Skye, the Inhumans and the Kree took another step forward this week.
Oh boy, all the fan service! Where to begin? Well, for people who haven’t already Wikied the origin of the Inhumans, »

Chasity Bites is a film that has been on my radar for quite some time; ever since I saw the awesome poster designed by Rebel Rouser artist and illustrator Nathan Thomas Milliner for the films screening at the Dances With Films festival way back in June 2013. Of course it’s been over 18 months since then and all has gone quite… Or so I thought. Thankfully independent UK distributors Safecracker Pictures have seen fit to debut the film – on VOD, followed by a DVD release in a couple of months – here in Blighty.
First off, having finally sat down and watched the film, can someone tell me why I never realised it starred one of my favourite actresses, Alison Scagliotti, »

Chastity Bites, 2013.
Directed by John V. Knowles.
Notorious serial killer Elizabeth Bathory believed that bathing in virgin blood would keep her young and beautiful forever. Still alive today she’s found a perfect hunting ground for her “botox” as an abstinence educator in conservative America…but will a brave young blogger and reporter for the high school paper finally put an end to the “Blood Countess’s” reign of terror, and save her best friend from becoming the next victim?
This Means Girls-like comedy slasher/horror isn’t what you’re expecting from the box art. From the cover you’d probably expect this to be a Teen Vampire Horror in micro tartan skirts, which it really isn’t. It’s odd as the poster artwork elsewhere on the web clearly shows that this is a slasher »
Some 13 years after the credits rolled on the final episode, the X-Files still remains one of the most iconic and boundary-pushing TV shows to ever grace our screens. Over its 9 year run on Fox it astounded audiences with its 202 episodes of alien abduction, government conspiracy, and things that go bump in the night – spawning three movies and a spin-off show on its way.
At the time the longest running sci-fi series in Us history, and now with one of the biggest cult followings in the world, barely a week goes by without another rumour of a reboot or a revival. Even today, its influence on prime time TV can be seen, with the creators behind Lost, Desperate Housewives, Fringe, Millennium, and Warehouse 13 all speaking of their love for the show and how they took elements of it for their own.
