Are you suffering from flashback fatigue in TV shows?

Robb Sheppard Sep 7, 2017

Lost, Arrow, The Handmaid's Tale... do flashback episodes ever get you down?

We’ve all been there, haven’t we? We’ve waited a week for the brand new ep of our fav new show, desperate to see some forward momentum, some steps towards being satisfied or a road to resolution. But as the intro fades, something seems amiss, out of place and out of time.

Book Review: ‘The TommyKnockers’ (1987) by Stephen King

Reviewed by Jesse Miller,

MoreHorror.com

Late last night and the night before,

TommyKnockers! TommyKnockers!

Knocking at my door!

Coming out in 1987 at the height of his addictions, The TommyKnockers is Stephen King’s angriest novel, its story and nightmarish imagery fuelled by the manic energy of cocaine.

One of its main characters, Jim Gardner, is a self-loathing drunk teetering on the edge of suicide when he gets a vision that his good friend and past lover, back in the quaint town of Haven, Maine of course – has found something buried in the Earth. Something that compels her to dig deeper and unearth the secrets contained within.

For the first few hundred pages or so, we’re with Gard as he wanders through black out after black out, trying to make sense of the lost time while trying to function as a once-successful poet.

We come into the story when

Dominic Monaghan's 100 Code, Two More Foreign Crime Dramas to Air Stateside on Wgn America

Dominic Monaghan's 100 Code, Two More Foreign Crime Dramas to Air Stateside on Wgn America
Wgn America is going on an international crime spree.

The cable network has acquired the U.S. TV rights to a trio of foreign crime dramas: 100 Code (Sweden), Shoot the Messenger (Canada) and Pure (Canada). And their casts offer a dose of Hollywood sizzle: 100 Code stars Dominic Monaghan (Lost, the Lord of the Rings trilogy) as a NYPD detective who heads to Stockholm to track down a serial killer who’s targeting young, blonde women with blue eyes. (The late Michael Nyqvist, of Girl With the Dragon Tattoo fame, plays his new Swedish partner.)

Mindy Newell: Disappointment and Delight

This season of Doctor Who just isn’t working for me.

This is imho, of course, and Ymmv, but after a great opening episode (The Pilot) I’ve been very disappointed. The stories haven’t excited me, and, more important, the relationship between Pearl Mackie’s Bill Potts and Peter Capaldi’s Doctor doesn’t seem to have moved all that much forward; there isn’t any there there, as Trumpists like to say these days. (Of course I had to get a Trump reference in here. You know me.) It started off great, with hints of something even more brewing.

Why does the Doctor take an interest in the non-matriculated kitchen worker who was attending his lectures? Why did he go out of his way to use the Tardis to go back in the past to take pictures of Bill’s dead mom – of whom she had no memory

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo screens at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s Saturday, March 11th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. The film will be introduced by Harry Hamm, movie reviewer for Kmox. Admission is only $5

This gives us a perfect excuse to re-run this top ten list so here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are Alfred Hitchcock’s ten best films:

Frenzy

Frenzy, Hitchcock’s next to last feature film from 1972, represented a homecoming of sorts since it was the first film completely shot in his native England since his silents and early ” talkies ” in the 1930’s. By dipping into the then somewhat new territory of serial killers, he took full advantage of the new cinema freedoms and truly earned his ‘ R ‘ MPAA rating.

Natalie Brown Talks Channel Zero: Candle Cove and The Strain

  • DailyDead
As both a creature of the night with an appetite for human blood and an endearing hard worker living in rural America, Natalie Brown plays two very different types of mothers on The Strain and Channel Zero: Candle Cove, but she excels at bringing out the pure love for her children in both characters (in very different ways, as fans of The Strain can attest to). Following another powerful performance as Jessica Yolan in this week's episode of Syfy's Candle Cove, Daily Dead, along with other journalists, had the opportunity to speak with the actress about her key role in the creepypasta adaptation. [Spoiler warning for those who haven't watched the first four episodes of Candle Cove and the entire third season of The Strain.]

Natalie Brown discusses the irony of not liking to watch horror shows even though she's been a part of so many:

American Horror Story: examining the real lost colony of Roanoke

David Crow Sep 23, 2016

The backdrop to American Horror Story season 6, our Us chums look at the lost colony of Roanoke, its myths and pop culture appearances...

In case you missed it, the American Horror Story season 6 theme has been revealed, and it is a bloody Roanoke Nightmare indeed. After promoting the new season without releasing a single frame of footage, the ever-cryptic Ryan Murphy has now unveiled his true crime satire-meets-American Gothic to a surprised public, leading many to wonder… what is Roanoke again?

Despite a misconception in some quarters that the name infamously tied to the words “Lost Colony” was made up for the series, and that this fictional ghost story was set in Virginia (Roanoke is in present day North Carolina), Roanoke is indeed a real place, and the ghost stories around it are every bit as strange—if not stranger—than anything American Horror Story has dreamed up.
