Buffy the Vampire Slayer Rewatch: Killed by Death

  • TVfanatic
Before you ask: Yes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 18 reminds me of A Nightmare on Elm Street. I see Freddy Krueger every time the Der Kindestod appears on screen. (I clearly watch too many horror movies.)

I enjoy "Killed by Death" as a guilty pleasure hour. It was a nice break from the Angelus drama and we got a new enemy that played off some iconic fairytale themes, like the Boogeyman. Still, I can see why not everyone likes it.

Are you a fan? Let's chat it out as we rewatch "Killed by Death."

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 18 featured a first that we didn't see often throughout the series. In this case, Buffy was sick. Not 'sick' as in healing from a fighting injury but she had a case of the flu.

If this were any other show, a sick character would be common and arbitrary. However,

Director Kevin Smith has revealed the first photo from the set of his horror anthology Killroy Was Here. The director started shooting the first installment back in June, working from a script he co-wrote with Andrew McElfresh (White Chicks), who also served as visual effects supervisor on Kevin Smith's Yoga Hosers. While the filmmaker wouldn't offer any details about what scene is being shot in the photo, the filmmaker did comment on this story when the project was first announced in June. Here's what the director had to say below.

"This is a monster movie in the sense of a classic morality tale. No one wants to see you spill the blood of innocents, but when someone crosses the line and goes bad, you get to make them pay in horrible ways, and the audience cheers. We wanted to make an anthology film in the vein of Creepshow. Killroy is like the Golem,

25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

Ouija Summons Up A Sequel

Ouija Summons Up A Sequel
Ouija, the teen horror from first-time director Stiles White, may not have spoken to the critics much, but managed to manifest a healthy box-office haul. It beat John Wick to the top of the charts on its opening weekend last October, and currently boasts a worldwide haul just under $100m. You might think a sequel was inevitable. And you'd be right! Universal has broken out the board again.The first film starred Olivia Cooke, and White himself wrote the screenplay with his regular cohort Juliet Snowden (Boogeyman, Knowing, The Possession). In an intriguing change, however, the sequel will be working from a screenplay by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard, who were behind last year's excellent Oculus. Perhaps this will be one of those rare occasions when a follow-up drastically improves on its predecessor. It's unclear at this stage whether Flanagan is interested in directing Ouija 2.Elsewhere the roster is the same,

It’s another Sam Raimi reunion as Starz have announced that Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess) has joined the cast of their upcoming show Ash vs. Evil Dead.

“Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons – personal and literal.

Review: 'Ouija' Starring Olivia Cooke, Daren Kagasoff and Douglas Smith

After doing rigorous testing, i.e., sitting through “Ouija”, we can now confirm that you can, in fact, jump out of your seat with fear and roll your eyes at the same time. This film is effectively scary, filled with plenty of jump moments and a few slow-burning scenes, but the scares aren’t enough to balance the poor writing and lack of imagination. We can’t help but wonder what movie would have resulted had a version from Marti Noxon (of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and the underrated “Fright Night” remake) actually made it to the screen. She was attached to the script, but this Hasbro-produced film shuffled through a number of writers and filmmakers before finally landing on first-time director Stiles White, who wrote the script with Juliet Snowden. The pair had previously worked together on critical disasters “The Possession,” “Knowing” and “Boogeyman.” But instead of Noxon’s

Universal's Timely Horror Adventure 'Ouija' Reveals New UK Trailer

There aren't a lot of promising opportunities for big screen horror this fall it seems, but Universal Pictures is going to try to rake in the Halloween audiences with Ouija, their supernatural horror adventure inspired by the creepy "board game" of the same name. But as the tagline so obviously points out, this isn't a game. A new theatrical trailer has arrived, and while it's a little better than the first teaser trailer, it still hits every horror cliche you would expect in a film like this from creepy dolls to laughing kids. Though I like the use of the game board eyepiece, Everything else seems so predictable and full of cheap jump scares. Watch below! Here's the UK trailer for Stiles White's Ouija from YouTube (via The Playlist): Ouija is directed by Stiles White, director of Boogeyman, The Possession and Knowing, who co-wrote the script with Juliet Snowden,

Hounded by the brute guard and the otherworldly forces of Good and Evil, a claustrophobic battle for his soul rages.

Skye McCole Bartusiak's Mother: Daughter Had Seizures the Week Before Death
In the days before she died Saturday at 21, Skye McCole Bartusiak had epileptic seizures, according to her mother. Bartusiak, who made a lasting impression on the big screen portraying the daughter of Mel Gibson in The Patriot (2000), first dealt with seizures as a baby, Helen McCole Bartusiak told CNN. The seizures stopped for a few years before returning last week, she said. Her boyfriend found Bartusiak sitting in her bed inside the garage apartment next to her parents' Houston home, leading her mother to believe she had a seizure and choked. "Nobody was there," she told CNN. Before paramedics arrived,
