Rollback Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 4

And thus, a new era began.

Buffy Season Four is a controversial Season amongst fans. To put it simply – it’s not the favourite for many. This was a bit of an interesting year for the show – for one thing, it lost two of its principle cast members to a newly launched spin-off, the familiar high school location was no more and the characters were officially adults. Times were moving on for Buffy, and the things that we had gotten used to were going to have to change.

Thus, the show moved onto the life of a Slayer at College, and the adventures that ensued. Adventures that are a little, well, daft at times. Don’t get me wrong – Season Four is by no means a failure, and does hit some serious heights on occasion. If anything, it lacks the consistency of Season Three and the brilliance of Season Two.

Night of the Demon (Rendez-vous avec la peur)

This French disc release of the Jacques Tourneur classic gets everything right — including both versions in picture perfect transfers. Devil debunker Dana Andrews locks horns with Niall MacGinnis, a necromancer “who has decoded the Old Book” and can summon a fire & brimstone monster from Hell, no election fraud necessary. Even fans that hate ghost stories love this one — it’s a truly creepy, intelligent highlight of the horror genre.

Nightbreed: the enduring appeal of a horror classic

Marc Buxton Jan 12, 2017

It seems that Nightbreed has always captured the imagination of horror movie fans. And with good reason...

When the push began for Nightbreed, Clive Barker’s follow up to the cult hit Hellraiser in 1990, the marketing made the film feel like just another slasher film. The confusing advertisements couldn’t seem to decide whether the film’s killer was a button-eyed, masked killer, or the film’s lead character Boone - played by Craig Sheffer - leaving fans scratching their collective heads over what this coming horror joint was even about.

The theatrical posters for Nightbreed read “Lori thought she knew everything about her boyfriend….Lori was wrong!” and the tagline couldn't have missed the point of Nightbreed more if it tried. The film was a meditation on monsters and fringe dwellers,

The Level episode 1 review

Louisa Mellor Sep 30, 2016

New ITV crime drama The Level efficiently sets up a whodunit mystery grounded in an emotional story…

This review contains spoilers.

ITV crime drama has gone back to the seaside with The Level, a new six-part thriller set against the lurid hen dos and moody seascapes of Brighton.

Karla Crome (Misfits, Under The Dome) plays Nancy Devlin, a high-achieving young detective sergeant whose probity is compromised by her emotional ties to shady businessman Frank Le Saux (Life On MarsPhilip Glenister). The father of her school friend Hayley (Da Vinci’s DemonsLaura Haddock), Frank’s family offered young Nancy a refuge from her troubled home life.

New Us sci-fi, fantasy and horror shows for 2016

  • Den of Geek
From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...

The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.

So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.

Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

What next for Saturday night UK family drama?

From Primeval to Merlin and Atlantis, Doctor Who's return spawned a host of Saturday teatime dramas that have since disappeared. What next?

It’s Saturday night. BBC 1 is showing Doctor Who. It does this a lot, generally speaking, and has done on and off (sometimes very off) for over fifty years. When the show returned in 2005 it brought with it the realisation that there was a huge family audience un-catered for on Saturday nights, and unfortunately Doctor Who was only on air for a quarter of the year, so it couldn’t do it all by itself.

ITV quickly realised it needed to attract that audience too, and while it had gameshows that dominated the schedules it didn’t have anything like Buck Rogers In The 25th Century or The A Team to put up against the BBC this time. And time was of the essence: new shows had

New trailer for The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death

Meet the spooky new trailer for Hammer's upcoming The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death...

There are some key faces missing from Hammer's upcoming production, The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death. Following the success of The Woman In Black, there's no Daniel Radcliffe for a start, nor is director James Watkins back behind the camera. Jane Goldman hasn't penned the screenplay this time either.

But then The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death is set to be a different story, set during a different time. Taking place 40 years after the first haunting at Eel Marsh House, this time a bunch of children evacuated during World War II arrive there. And as you might expect, there are spooky goings on.

Tom Harper has taken on the director's chair this time, having previously directed The Scouting Book For Boys, along with episodes of Peaky Blinders, This Is England '86 and Demons.

Impressions of Evil Dead: The Musical

  • DailyDead
Doris the Deadite greets us atop the stairs leading to Planet Hollywood’s V3 Theater in Las Vegas. Wearing a blood-splotched white dress with a matching white hat nestled on her curly blonde hair, Doris smiles through the peeling gray skin of her face. Teeth bared, eyes darting from sunken sockets, Doris cackles and beckons us closer for a photo. Welcome to the immersive atmosphere of Evil Dead The Musical Ultimate 4D Experience.

A tasty slice of horror heaven from director/producer Sirc Michaels that’s based on Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy, as well as the book and lyrics of George Reinblatt, this Vegas production is packed with nods to its beloved source material, but also boasts buckets of blood-drenched originality.

After our photo is snapped with Doris, we hang out in the bar area for a bit before another Deadite calls us into the theater. As we walk down a short hallway,

Production Designer Paul Cripps on creating Atlantis

  • Den of Geek
Interview Juliette Harrisson 3 Oct 2013 - 07:00

Juliette talks creating Classical Greece in modern-day Morocco and Wales with Atlantis production designer Paul Cripps...

Having worked on Merlin, Demons and Hex, Paul Cripps is no stranger to creating a colourful fantasy show on a budget. We sat down to chat with him about his work on Atlantis, from what inspired his set design to the practicalities of putting the show together in under a year.

What can you tell us about the different styles and influences on the set?

We tried to avoid too much of Classical Greece. Most of the Greek myths were set in an earlier time anyway. Everybody has an expectation of what ancient Greece looks like, and it’s normally Classical Greece [c480 – 323 BC, with the architecture of Classical Athens particularly well known – DoG], but we wanted to move away and make it a little bit more tribal, a bit earlier, so we’ve taken it more towards Bronze Age Greece,

TV Reviews: Showtime’s ‘The Big C,’ ‘Nurse Jackie,’ ‘The Borgias’

TV Reviews: Showtime’s ‘The Big C,’ ‘Nurse Jackie,’ ‘The Borgias’
Although Showtime vaulted into rarefied air with its Emmy win for “Homeland,” the channel continues to offer a spate of shows that clearly have admirers and boast billboard-worthy stars but amount to utility players, failing to reach cable’s elite tier. Two of those, “Nurse Jackie” and “The Borgias,” return April 14, while “The Big C” has been granted the TV equivalent of a dignified death, with four hourlong episodes to conclude the series. A new showrunner hasn’t changed “Jackie” — worth recommending for Edie Falco and not much else — while “Borgias” proves that even papal intrigue and debauchery can grow tiresome.

So if there’s one worth discussing, it’s “The Big C: hereafter” — not because it works, but because the ways in which these episodes fall short illuminate how a promising premise can go wrong, squandering a provocative idea. Even so, credit Showtime with committing to this limited run,

Promo Art For ‘The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death’

The sequel to The Woman In Black sure got off to a speedy start production wise. We can now give you a glimpse at some promotional art, courtesy of Shock Till You Drop, that appeared at Afm (American Film Market). The sequel titled The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death, will not follow on directly from the Daniel Radcliffe starring predecessor. It will in fact tell the tale of the house 40 years on, which has now been converted to take care of mentally disturbed soldiers during World War II. Guess who’s coming to liven things up? That little tramp I’d bet. The film will be directed by Tom Harper who has worked on TV series such as Misfits, This Is England ’86, and Demons.

‘The Woman In Black’ Sequel Conjures Up Its Director!

The astonishing box-office success of Hammer Films’ The Woman In Black was always going to draw up the possibility of a sequel despite its bleak, bone-chilling ending. Although the films’ star Daniel Radcliffe won’t be returning (he’s currently shooting another horror, Alexandre Aja’s Horns), the grim ghostly apparition will, as her dark extravagant abode becomes a place for veterans to recuperate during war torn Britain in The Woman In Black: Angels Of Death.

Rising director Tom Harper is now confirmed as being the man to terrify audiences again and taking over the original film’s James Watkins. He’s responsible for work on a number of hit Brit series such as This Is England 86, Misfits and Demons.
