Ben McKenzie suffers head injury while filming Gotham

14 September 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re all very excited by the premiere of Gotham which hits our screens on September 22nd. But remember folks, it’s all fun and games until someone bangs their head against a concrete pillar.

A few days ago Ben McKenzie – who stars as a young Detective James Gordon in the crime drama – was filming a fight sequence when the incident happened forcing him to be rushed to hospital to get stitches in his head.

The actor posted some images on his Instagram account and laughed off the accident afterwards, “Fight scene gone awry. Don’t ram your head into concrete pillars kids…Holy concrete wall Batman!”

Check out the graphic image below…

Thankfully it wasn’t a serious injury and he was able to dust himself off afterwards saying “Thanks for stitching me up nice. Back to work Monday.”

New Gotham featurette focussing on Detective Harvey Bullock

12 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve had a couple of Gotham promos this week featuring on Oswald Cobblepot and Detective James Gordon, and now it’s the turn of Donal Logue’s Detective Harvey Bullock, who is the subject of the latest featurette from the Batman prequel series. Take a look below…

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker.

Fear The Night In Trailer For The Town That Dreaded Sundown Remake

10 September 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Summer’s winding down, the nights are drawing in and Halloween is the next big holiday. For all you horror fans out there, this means one thing: a cinematic calendar filled with spooky, gory, and altogether frightening flicks to aid your insomnia. Or, in more recent years: remakes, sequels and reboots. Either way you’ll likely leave the theatre screaming; from fear or frustration. To prepare you for the dark nights ahead, we urge you to scope out the first trailer for meta-remake, The Town That Dreaded Sundown.

Resist the urge to rant for at least the remainder of this article. This isn’t your typical cash-in. This remake of the 1976 classic horror comes from two genre masters. American Horror Story‘s Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum – whose Blumhouse Productions gave the community Insidious, Sinister and the Paranormal Activity franchise. They’ve each forwarded the somewhat stagnant genre. With Ahs »

Casey La Scala is best known as a producer of the legendary 2001 film Donnie Darko. Most recently, La Scala has written and directed an intriguing film entitled The Remaining, releasing today, and he sat down with Dread Central to discuss all the details.

Premiering at London Frightfest on August 25, The Remaining is an intriguing jaunt. We asked La Scala about his influences and inspirations for the film. "After my father died, I really started to question life, death and my own mortality," La Scala said.

"Watching my father die was a tough experience, but I learned the most important lesson," he continued.
