Competition: Win horror ‘Pyewacket’ on DVD

To celebrate the home entertainment release of Pyewacket available now on Digital HD and on DVD from the 23rd April 2018, we have a copy of the DVD up for grabs, courtesy of Signature Entertainment!

Forget teen-friendly jump scares and Ouija board pranks – this the real deal, that goes deep into the dark heart of the occult. From the producer of cult hits The Void and The Witch, Pyewacket can take its place alongside those other-wordly modern horror classics.

Adam MacDonald, who directed the impressive killer bear thriller Backcountry, has crafted a deliciously taut slow burner, with outstanding central performances from Nicole Munoz as witchcraft-obsessed teenager Leah, and The Walking Dead’s Laurie Holden as her mother. As surprising as it is inventive, the film plants a seed of dread from the moment teenager Leah performs an occult ritual in the woods, building to an excruciating climax that will do for

The 24 Most Important Vampire TV Shows Ever, Ranked
Today is the 20th anniversary of the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” premiere, and the day that “The Vampire Diaries” airs its series finale — a day sure to go down in broadcast history as Vampire TV Day.

But those two shows are far from the only ones to depict bloodsuckers (to use a pejorative term) on screen, and IndieWire has dusted off the TV crypt to unearth a ranker of our favorite fangs.

Yes, we know there’s a lot at stake here.

Some rules for this list: At least one of the series regulars has to be a vampire. Also, no kids shows (sorry, “My Babysitter’s A Vampire”), no animation (sorry, “Count Duckula”), no foreign language shows (sorry, South Korea — wow, you guys like vampires) and no miniseries or anthology series (which is why “American Horror Story: Hotel

Entertainment Geekly: The least disappointing endings

Entertainment Geekly: The least disappointing endings
Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses! This week there are two columns inspired by True Detective, partially because True Detective was a thought-provoking TV show which deserves a significant amount of thoughtful analysis, but mainly because I missed a column last week. Today: A consideration of where the show’s ending fits into the pantheon. Tomorrow: A meditation on the show’s meaning, or lack thereof. Spoilers follow.

True Detective only ran for eight episodes, but the final episode carried series-finale weight and expectation.

Burn Notice Review: Men and Monsters

  • TVfanatic
Michael learned exactly what the organization that Sonya and Burke do this week, as James laid it out for him to face the "Nature of the Beast." Yes, he and his operatives find monsters and eliminate them.

James certainly has a nice sales pitch for joining his team. To be fair to James, in a lot of ways his mission fits Michael better than working for the CIA. Which made me wonder for a few minutes if Burn Notice might be going for a"dark side" anti-hero ending to the series.

I've only watched one show brave enough to take the anti-hero route: Forever Knight, which ran for three seasons back in the mid-90s and was the story of a vampire trying to regain his humanity by working as a cop. In the final episode, he gave in to his inner-monster, quit being a cop, gave up the girl

Sanctuary Writer Offers Props as Keepsakes to Support Kids

  • CinemaSpy
Sanctuary starred Amanada Tapping as Dr. Helen Magnus, protector of abnormals.

A former writer and producer on Sanctuary is offering some of the last remaining props from the sci-fi series in an attempt to raise funds for the charitable foundation that grew out of it.

Gillian Horvath, who was a writer and supervising producer on the Vancouver-shot show, is selling mementos from Sanctuary in support of Sanctuary For Kids. Sanctuary was cancelled earlier this year by Syfy after four seasons. It was originally created as a web series in 2007.

Sanctuary For Kids was formed by the show’s creator Damian Kindler, the star and executive producer of Sanctuary, Amanda Tapping, and Jill Bodie. It has funded services supporting children in various parts of the world, including Vancouver, Haiti, Pakistan and Nepal.

Items on offer in Horvath’s Sanctuary Keepsake Campaign (#SanctuaryKeepsakeCampaign on Twitter) include pens and pencils, wine corks, wine

Lionsgate Plans ‘Cube 3D’ film

It’s back to the “Cube” again. Lionsgate is soliciting pitches for “Cube 3D,” according to ShockTillYouDrop. It is not clear on whether the film would be the third part of a complete reboot of the franchise.

The original film was directed by Vincenzo Natali (“Splice,” “Ginger Snaps”). It starred Nicole de Boer (“Stephen King’s Dead Zone,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”), Maurice Dean Wint (“RoboCop: Prime Directives,” “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) and David Hewlett (“Stargate: Atlantis,” “Splice”).

Venturing into the Supernatural in "Psi Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal:" A Television Series Review

This article was written by fellow blogger and writer Ed Sum.

Fans of the Canadian produced series, "Psi Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal" can rejoice. The complete series is available on DVD from Alliance Home Entertainment. Each season can be bought individually or all in one full scoop.

Originally airing from 1996 to 2000, this fictional drama focused on a group of scientists working for the Office of Scientific Investigation and Research (O.S.I.R.), trying to validate claims of encounters with the unknown and dealing with government conspiracies. While "X-files" took off, "Psi Factor" fell behind due to scheduling conflicts and moderate ratings.

One problem stemmed from Dan Aykroyd's claims that these case files were based on actual case logs. There was no validity despite the well-known fact that Aykryod is enamored with the world of the supernatural. But his contribution is not just limited to himself. His father,

Daily Planet To Get A New Owner In Upcoming 'Smallville' Episode?

Clark Kent and Lois Lane could be getting a new boss on "Smallville."

Kryptonsite is reporting that Blu Mankuma will appear in an episode later this year as Franklin Stern — the owner and publisher of the Daily Planet in the DC Universe. Stern was created by Louise Simonson and Jon Bogdanove in 1993 during the "Superman: The Man of Steel" series.

James Earl Jones portrayed Stern on a single episode of "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" during the first season of that show. Given the history of the character — and the upcoming return of Michael McKean as Perry White — it seems likely that Stern will assume ownership of the paper from Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman).

Mankuma — who recently appeared in the film "2012" — has an extensive resume of genre TV series, including "The X-Files," "The Outer Limits," "Forever Knight," "Robocop: The Series" and "Stargate Sg-1."

Mankuma's character will appear alongside

Interview: Clay Borris (Prom Night IV: Deliver Us from Evil)

Clay Borris may not be a name you recognize immediately, but trust me, you've seen his work. A veteran of film and television, Borris has been writing, acting and directing since the early 1970s. In 1981, he wrote, directed, produced and starred in the film Alligator Shoes. He is most well known for Quiet Cool, a 1986 film from New Line about an unconventional New York cop. He also directed the genre flick Prom Night IV: Deliver Us From Evil, and was Second Unit Director on the now classic Wrong Turn. In addition, he's directed numerous episodes of genre television mainstays like Forever Knight and Highlander (TV). Over the last few years, he has done more television than anything, but has taken time to talk to us today about his return to the silver screen.

What's the deal with vampires these days?

  • Aol TV.
Filed under: Other Sci-Fi/Supernatural Shows, TV Squad Polls, Reality-Free

I haven't jumped on the vampire bandwagon. I don't have any real interest in Twilight or True Blood or any other vampire show/movie that starts with a T (The Vampire Diaries starts this fall on The CW). But I've liked them for a long time, from the Christopher Lee films to Kolchak to Forever Knight.

Grady Hendrix at Slate says that vampire stories suck (ha ha) now, because it's more about feelings and psychology and vampires having normal lives and very little about the biting of people.

Unkillable Classics: The TV List

  • Fangoria
All right, Fangoria Campers. You may recall that in a prior installment (read it here) I tackled the idea of the Best Horror on TV. Ever. I listed a number of appropriate series possibilities, and invited you to kick other nominees into the list. What we’re going to do now is narrow that list down to 15. You give me your top Five based on the list, and I’ll compile the top 15 nominees for a later installment. I ask that you stick to the list; however, if you offer a compelling case for a show that I or the commenting readers missed the first time around, I might be convinced to add it.

So now, the list:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Angel The Twilight Zone The X-Files Dark Shadows Tales from the Crypt Tales from the Darkside Night Gallery Kolchak; The Night Stalker Supernatural Twin Peaks Friday the 13th:

Unkillable Classics: Killer TV

Apologies to the legions of Fango Faithful: inasmuch as I've been trying to get on a regular schedule with Unkillable Classics, a number of obstacles have thrown their limbs in the way. No matter. We're forging ahead. For this installment, I'd initially considered discussing Let The Right One In, but I'm almost afraid of overexposing it in a way at this point. Maybe we'll give it some time and come back. For the moment, though, I'd like to swing away from film and discuss a different kind of classic: TV. I'm inviting you, the reader, to help me divine the greatest horror-related TV shows of all time.

Here's how we'll do this: I'm going to kick out a list of a few dozen classic series. You can respond with some that I may have neglected to include. From there, the next few installments of Unkillable Classics will follow this thread,

Moonlight The Complete Series DVD Review -- Nico reviews the short lived vampire series

From My Best Friend is a Vampire to The Lost Boys, from Fright Night to Forever Knight, I am there. I’ll be honest. I didn’t watch Moonlight during its initial run because it looked like a Forever Knight retread. I grew up watching Forever Night off the Cbc and it holds a special place in my heart. Just a few minutes in my viewing, Moonlight set me straight. Moonlight lays down the rules right off the bat. Crucifixes do nothing. Garlic tastes good on pizza. Sunlight weakens and could eventually destroy a vampire, but it’s definitely not instantaneous. A stake through the heart will paralyze a vampire… so will silver. The only surefire ways to kill a vampire – remove its head or burn its body. Much like Nick Knight, Mick St. John fights crime, though as a private investigator and not a cop. He’s only lived

Just Buried: Digging Up Laughs

As the theaters fill with serious fright fare for Halloween, there’s a new, deliciously evil little comedy from Canada making the cinema scene. It’s called Just Buried, and while it may not be horror in the strictest sense, it contains enough macabre sensibility, twisted humor and gruesome deaths to satisfy any genre fan.

Starring rising comedy star Jay Baruchel (Knocked Up, Tropic Thunder) and up-and-coming genre darling Rose Byrne (28 Weeks Later, Sunshine), and written/directed by newcomer Chaz Thorne, Just Buried is making its latest stop this weekend at Los Angeles’ Laemmle Sunset 5 for midnight showings (purchase tickets here). The story centers on a young man named Oliver (Baruchel), who comes home to a small town in Nova Scotia for his father’s funeral. Ollie inherits the family business, a funeral home in a town with a drought of corpses. Facing bankruptcy and failure, he and his adorably odd coroner/mortician girlfriend,
