Friday, July 30, 1999. My friends and I — high school kids stuck in a rural, one-stoplight town — piled into a car and drove 30 miles to the nearest movie theater to see The Blair Witch Project on opening night. For all we knew it was real; the recovered, reassembled footage of three student filmmakers who ventured into the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland to film a documentary about the Blair Witch, a local legend. The students were never seen again, and we were about to witness something akin to supernatural snuff — evidence of the strange and inexplicable, the terrifying final moments of three young people.

Blair Witch movie review

Blair Witch
Director: Adam Wingard
Screenwriter: Simon Barrett
Cast: James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Valorie Curry, Brandon Scott
Distributor: Lionsgate
Rated R | 93 Minutes
Release Date: September 16, 2016

Horror is a genre that exists to be mimicked and imitated. When John Carpenter’s Halloween debuted and shattered box offices in 1978 it started a decade-long slasher craze. While “found footage” films existed before 1999, that year’s surprise smash hit The Blair Witch Project turned a little-used subgenre of horror into the next big thing. Made on a miniscule $60,000 budget, the film grossed over $140 million and finished 10th in the 1999 box office standings. It’s hard to remember a time before the Internet was the biggest thing in Earth, but in 1999 the phrase “going viral” still referred to diseases. Hence when filmmakers spread a viral campaign that insisted that the movie was actually recovered documentary footage and that the filmmakers/actors were lost and maybe dead, people really believed it! Fast forward 17 years and one of the kings of mumblegore, Adam Wingard, revealed at this summer’s SDCC that his upcoming found-footage film The Woods was actually a sequel to The Blair Witch Project. Simply entitled Blair Witch, the film comes out in theaters this Friday, but I was able to attended a press screening last night.

‘The Tick’: First Look At Peter Serafinowicz In Amazon’s Live-Action Reboot Pilot
BAADASSSSS!   |  

The Tick

In March, it was announced that Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television were developing a pilot for a live-action series based on Ben Edlund‘s superhero spoof comic book The Tick, with Edlund scripting and serving as an executive producer and British comedic genius Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy) cast in the title role. The pilot was directed by Wally Pfister, the cinematographer on all three of Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies, Inception, and Moneyball.

Recently Amazon released both the premiere date for the pilot and a small set of images, including our first look at Serafinowicz is full Tick attire. You can check out the pictures here below.

‘The Tick’ TV Show: Peter Serafinowicz Cast In Title Role For Amazon Series
The Movie God   |  

Peter Serafinowicz to Star In The Tick

Back in 2001 a live-action TV series based on Ben Edlund‘s comic The Tick was made with Seinfeld, Family Guy, and The Emperor’s New Groove star Patrick Warburton playing the title role. The show aired on Fox and, as shows tend to do there, only lasted nine episodes (related note #1: Edlund also worked on that other show you think of when you think of Fox shows that were canceled too early, Firefly, writing the episodes “Trash” and “Jaynestown” and also producing). But even with its short run, the show has developed a cult following.

While that show isn’t coming back to life, Amazon has ordered a pilot episode for a potential brand new series based on Edlund’s Tick character. Nothing is official yet as far as getting a full series order, but an actor has been chosen to take over the role from Warburton. It’s being reported that comedian, actor, writer, and all-around talented gentleman Peter Serafinowicz will take on the title role for the pilot.
