Eric Overmyer swears the third season of Amazon’s “Man in the High Castle” isn’t a response to Donald Trump.
“I banned the ‘T’ word in the writers room,” Overmyer, who took over as showrunner this year, told TheWrap. “I wanted to let the current situation resonate with the show by itself. I didn’t want it to dictate our narrative.”
But the real-world parallels of a show that not only imagines Nazi Germany’s victory in World War II — subjugating much of America in the process — but the spread of its fascist worldview, are hard to ignore. Put it his way: The tagline for this season is #ResistanceRises.

“I’m not saying our current administration is fascist,
Just as it has recently been difficult to watch programs such as the recently departed, award-winning The Americans, the science-fiction alternate reality of Colony, and the world we never want to become on Emmy-winning The Handmaid's Tale. The Man in the High Castle forces viewers to think.
In the alternate aftermath of World War II in which the Axis won dividing the United States into the Japanese Pacific States, the Neutral Zone, and Nazi America, it's not easy living for those now living in the territories. Even those fully converted with their oppressors struggle to accept what was with what is.
The Man in the High Castle Season 3 continues the exploration of that conflict as the series also moved head-first into more standard science fiction fare. It's unclear how fully immersed in
Amazon played fans a new clip from “deep, deep in Season 3” of the show, which takes place in a world where Nazi Germany has taken over much of the United States. The footage finds Alexa Davalos’ character Juliana Crain skulking around in an underground tunnel with her resistance allies, including new main cast member Jason O’Mara, adjacent to what appears to be some kind of Nazi facility. Meanwhile, U.S. Obergruppenführer John Smith (Rufus Sewell) is also in the facility, and a Nazi scientist is sort of vaguely explaining what this place is.
The gist is that the Nazis have built the tunnel around an “anomaly,” and they have a machine that interacts with it “perfectly.
The word “Nazi” is, on so many levels, an ugly one. The hard Z sound seems to match perfectly with what the word represents to us not just historically, but in the all-too-recent present. It’s a word that has a visceral impact, and that’s why its use on “The Man in the High Castle,” Amazon’s alternate-universe period drama, always brings with it a touch of horror, because it’s used casually in conversation. It’s not a slur. It’s a part of daily life.

Season 1 of “High Castle” was distinctly unflinching about its depiction of what America in 1962 might look like, if the Nazis and Japan had triumphed in World War II (the fate of a young Jewish woman and her children, early into the run, made
The clip begins with Thomas (Quinn Lord), son of John Smith (Rufus Sewell) arriving to school. All seems normal as he walks through the hallways, enters his classroom, helps a buddy with a detail in early American history, and is then chosen to lead the Pledge of Allegiance.
“I swear I will observe the law, conscientiously fulfill my duties at home and school, be faithful and obedient, and pledge absolute allegiance until death to the leader of the Nazi Empire, Adolf Hitler,” the students recite.

When best friends Michael and Matty make a pact to lose their virginity before prom, a spanner is thrown in the works when Matty comes out as gay. Trying to work out their new situation, Michael makes it his life ambition to continue the pact no matter what. Together, they start on an adventure of calamity and hi-jinx as they try to find their place in the world, how their lives have changed because of it and who can they persuade to have sex with them before prom night is through.
Date and Switch definitely suffers from that classic ‘teenager romantic comedy’ syndrome where it is all about sex and, namely, having it before a certain time limit is up.

1) Writer/director Michael Dougherty’s original idea for the film was for it to be an anthology of stories that had no direct connections, tales that he envisioned would be directed by different horror filmmakers.

It’s only risen in stature and popularity since, and it seemed like that groundswell movement reached its crescendo last night at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood for the finale of American Cinematheque and Amity’s Beyond Fest, one of the best film festivals in recent memory. The folks at Legendary teamed with the theatre to throw a bash, and provide a free screening for ardent fans of the picture. Tickets were snapped up within hours online, and the line to get in gave me a mini Comic-Con flashback. A lot of fervor for a Monday night screening, but I doubt anyone in the audience left disappointed.
A special screening of Trick ' r Treat was held at Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre last night, with director Michael Dougherty, producer Bryan Singer and stars Dylan Baker, Quinn Lord and Brian Cox in attendance. After the screening, the cast and crew held a Q&A session, which is when the bombshell announcement was made that one of the most requested horror sequels of all time is at long last headed our way.
Luckily, Legendary published the Q&A on their YouTube channel, which I have included below. It’s about 18 minutes long. An unprepared Seth Green hosts the Q&A that has Quinn Lord (Sam), Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty, Bryan Singer,
Watch the entire panel below, moderated by Seth Green.
Director Michael Dougherty started the conversation by discussing how the idea for a sequel came about.
"It's funny because when I first dreamt up the idea of making the first film, I thought, "How neat would it be if we made them a series?" I'm a firm believer that October should be filled with Halloween movies, or horror movies. That's something I remember from childhood. Horror movies and Halloween, they go hand-in-hand. And so the idea was, "Well we
