'Minority Report' TV Show Gets Stark Sands as Precog Twins
Just hours after the female lead role in Fox's Minority Report TV series went to Meagan Good, Stark Sands has landed the male lead, playing the dual roles of precog twins Dash and Arthur. Those roles were played by Matthew Dickman and Michael Dickman in the original Minority Report movie, directed by Steven Spielberg. The actor joins a growing cast that also includes Daniel London, Li Jun Li and Laura Regan.

The story is set 10 years after the Minority Report movie, where the Precrime experiment in Washington D.C. came to an end. Meagan Good is portraying Lara Vega, a detective with a troubled past who encounters Dash (Stark Sands), a former precog who is struggling to live a normal life as he continues to be plagued by haunting visions of the future. They team up as Dash is given a new sense of purpose for his incredible abilities. Daniel London

George A Romero 'Day of the Dead' remake coming in 2014

George A Romero 'Day of the Dead' remake coming in 2014
George A Romero's zombie classic Day of the Dead will be remade by the team behind the recent Texas Chainsaw 3D.

Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell's Campbell Grobman Films have snapped up the rights to the '80s movie and will reboot the property for release in 2014.

"Zombie movies are really popular right now, and we feel we could do this right," Campbell told the Los Angeles Times.

She added: "We want to keep it as close to the Romero version as possible, to make sure that his fans are happy. These are not going to be zombies climbing walls and doing back flips like in World War Z."

Day of the Dead was originally released in 1985 following on from the success of Romero's earlier zombie films Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. The movie followed a group of survivors holed up in an underground

Actress Christa Campbell talks “Spiders 3D”
Campbell plays Rachel, a health department worker who teams with her estranged husband, Mta official Jason (Patrick Muldoon) to stop a giant spider invasion of New York, in the Tibor Takacs-directed film. It’s the latest in a string of genre roles for the actress, also including the 2001 Maniacs movies, Drive Angry and the remakes of Day Of The Dead and The Wicker Man. She was also an executive producer on this year’s Texas Chainsaw 3D.

Fangoria: How did you become involved with Spiders?

Christa Campbell: Tibor and I have worked together on a few other films [among them Mansquito and Kraken: Tentacles Of The Deep], and when Spiders was being talked about, he asked me if I would play Rachel. I read the script and loved it, so I was immediately in.

Fang: Do you have a fear of spiders in real life?

Campbell: Yes, yes, yes! I said to myself when I first came on Spiders,

Excision (2012) Review: Will Cut You, Man!

Excision means removal by cutting cut. With that being said maybe you’ve learned something, so this review won’t be a complete waste of time. I may even be able to save you a bit of time by telling you that Excision is definitely worth seeing. Reading the rest of this review won’t spoil its rather knotted twist, but if you were looking for a movie to watch that’ll get under your skin, make for a great conversation starter after a few cocktails and leave you with a permanent case of “what the fuck was that?” I can say you’ve found it. It isn’t a horror movie no matter how many times I see it referred to as a horror comedy. You know me. I’ve pretty got a one track brain so when I choose to review a non-horror picture it probably means there

An American Pie for American Horror Story

An American Pie for American Horror Story

In the year 1999 the two somewhat iconic films, American Beauty and American Pie, launched model and actress Mena Suvari into the public eye. You’ll see her next in another American title, American Horror Story. Imagine that!

Suvari is coming to the oh so scary new series as a lady with some sort of connection to the Harmon house. The character’s nickname is super spooky. It’s The Black Dahlia. Say what? Yes, you heard me. The Black Dahlia, as I’m sure you know from the movies about her, was the high-profile murder victim circa 1947. You know, the murder that was never really solved. It would seem we will get to see a new, and hopefully frightening and creative theory as to what may have happened to the infamous lady. That will all happen during this season’s ninth episode.

The Asylum Unleashes the Trailer for Zombie Apocalypse

The award-winning co-star of the Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead remakes leads Taryn Manning (Hustle & Flow), Lesley Ann Brandt (“Spartacus: Blood and Sand”), Johnny Pacar (“Make It or Break It”), and Eddie Steeples (“My Name is Earl”) into battle against the walking dead in this gore-soaked zomsploitation flick from writers Craig Engler and Brooks Peck and Species: The Awakening director Nick Lyon.

Ving Rhames and another damn Zombie Apocalypse

Those crazy dudes from The Asylum are at it again, but this time they just might have something on their hands. Hailed as one of their biggest productions to date, Zombie Apocalypse is currently filming for its late December 27th DVD bow, with star Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction) who seemingly just can’t get out of a zombie apocalypse, as seen in Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead remakes.

Months after a zombie plague has wiped out 90 percent of the American population, a small group of survivors fight their way cross-country to a rumored refuge on the island of Catalina.

Zombie Apocalypse is directed by Nick Lyon (Species: The Awakening). Below are some first official set stills (via Dread Central):

Ving Rhames Enters The Asylum to Survive Another Zombie Apocalypse

I recall Ving Rhames saying in an interview around the time of the Dawn of the Dead remake’s release that he wasn’t a fan of horror movies. He must have since discovered an affinity for zombie flicks because Zombie Apocalypse marks his third go-round with the living dead.

Now here’s the part that might be most surprising to you. The Asylum is behind this particular Zombie Apocalypse. The film is being touted as possibly their biggest to date, which should be apparent since Ving Rhames could very well be the biggest name actor the mockbuster masters have gotten to star in one of their films yet.

Blu-ray Review: The Funhouse

Despite frequently being listed among the great horror directors, Tobe Hooper will always have the hardest job of pleasing his fans. No matter what film he makes, it will always be compared to his 1974 classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. To this day it remains one of the greatest and most chilling horror films of all time and a true work of genius.

The same can‘t really be said of Crocodile or the overly goofy and unpleasant Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Yet people seem to forget Hooper is capable of making films as good as Poltergeist or Salem’s Lot. Sitting somewhere in the middle is 1981’s The Funhouse, now re-released on a deluxe Blu-ray from Arrow Video from yesterday.

Released at the peak of the early 80’s slasher film craze, The Funhouse was Hooper’s first big budget feature. Despite working with a larger budget and studio pressure, the film

Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd & Paul Scheer Return For Piranha 3Dd

Piranha 3D ‘survivors’ Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames (wait…. didn’t he die in the first one????) and Paul Scheer (who was set to die in the original but his demise was cut out of the final print, meaning he inexplicably disappeared from the film) will now reprise their roles for the currently shooting sequel, Piranha 3Dd. Dimension sent out a press release yesterday.

Seriously though and I know this is a franchise that has no logic but just how does Ving Rhames return? Will Dr. Emmet Brown go back in time and stop him dying? Will it be a twin? (conspiracy theorists already believe his character in the Day of the Dead remake is the twin brother discussed in the Dawn of the Dead remake).

I mean clearly the implication is that he is dead. Oh wait, like Osama Bin Laden, you need a dead body shot right?
