In the Tall Grass

A movie adaptation of In the Tall Grass, a novella collaboration between father and son Stephen King and Joe Hill, is coming to Netflix.

Westworld and X-Men star James Marsden is currently in negotiations to star in the adaptation, which will be directed by Vincenzo Natali, who’s best known for 1997’s Cube and 2009’s Splice. Natali also directed the pilot episode for the now homeless Tremors TV series starring Kevin Bacon.

SYFY Passes On ‘Tremors’ TV Series Starring Kevin Bacon; Writer and Director React

Kevin Bacon in Tremors TV Series

Back in June of last year we found out that SYFY had ordered a pilot episode for a Tremors TV series, and that one of the stars of the original movie, Kevin Bacon, was going to star. News that excited the many fans of the creature feature franchise, which has since spawned five sequels (or four sequels and one prequel) and an earlier TV series in 2003.

The 2003 series was also on SYFY (which was called Sci-Fi Channel at the time) and starred Michael Gross, who has also appeared in all six movies, but it was canceled after only 13 episodes. Now it appears the first attempt has made SYFY a little nervous, as the network has decided to pass on the new Tremors series after only a pilot.

Bacon himself shared the news, and those who were working on the project are surprised by the decision. You can see what they’ve had to say about it below, which also includes some images from the pilot.

Last week on The Strain, Eichorst (Richard Sammel) tells Palmer (Jonathan Hyde) that HE will be going to the auction. Oh… and that he and Coco (Lizzie Brocheré) better fall in line, because the worm juice effects are only temporary. The Red Hook posse have their own dilemmas. Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) leaves Fet (Kevin Durand), for her boring girlfriend, and oh! You stupid, stupid girl! Nora and Eph (Mia Maestro and Corey Stoll) get word that Zach’s grandparents are still alive. Now he has some choices for Zach. The episode also had some 2005 flashbacks with Sean Astin, and it showed how the relationship between Eph and Nora started. Gus and Angel (Miguel Gomez and Joaquín Cosio) break some friends out of jail to be some Quinlan (Rupert Penry-Jones) soldiers.

Spoilers ahead for The Strain finale!

Air Date: Sunday September 27th, 2015, 10pm

Last week on The Strain gave me more gray hair, and I named one strand Eichorst (Richard Sammel). He and Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) shared some of the most intensely fearful scenes of the show to date. As a captor, I felt like he was psychologically torturing me. What was the deal with the pineapple? I thought he was kidding about seasoning, but I guess not. I felt triumphant when Dutch saved herself from rape by stinger, and my heart was racing as she went from brick wall to brick wall, hope dwindling with every step. I thought she was a dead woman, when the camera tricked us into thinking Fet, Eph, and Nora (Kevin Durand, Corey Stoll, and Mia Maestro) were traveling in the same stairwell. And then we knew. But nothing could keep him from getting to Dutch. That leap then despairing cry in Fet’s arms really got me. Other stuff happened too: Eichorst as a human nazi, Gus (Miguel Gomez) and Angel (Joaquín Cosio) see the Gupta family to safety, and Setrakian (David Bradley) tries to convince the guy that knocked him out not to sell the Occido Lumen though.

Hannibal 306 Promo

Hannibal
Season 3 Episode 6 “Dolce”
Directed by Vincenzo Natali
Written by Don Mancini
Created by Bryan Fuller
Starring Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Gillian Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Joe Anderson, Fortunato Cerlino, and Tao Okamoto
NBC
Air date: Thursday, July 9th, 2015, 10pm

I should have known better that Hannibal wouldn’t be so easily caught. History repeats itself and all. “Dolce” is an episode that I’m hoping will play better in retrospect, but for me was just too much place setting for what will be the end of Hannibal season three’s first major arc. as we see Will (Hugh Dancy) and Jack (Laurence Fishburne) come close to achieving their goals, only to have them stripped away at the last moment.

Who is Hannibal Lector?

The secret origin of Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) devil is something that hasn’t been explored deeply in the show’s past, rather, the intricate details have been left to the linger in the shadows our dear doctor loves so deeply. But as Will Graham looks to gain traction over the man who left him and others for dead, it seems that no stone will go unturned in the hunt to gain any upper hand against Hannibal – even if that means that Will resorts to less than noble tactics to obtain that advantage.

“You’re already dead, aren’t you?” – Inspector Rinaldo Pazzi

Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is dead. Long live Will Graham.

After diving into the whys and wherefores of Hannibal’s (Mads Mikkelsen) European departure, Hannibal 3.2 “Primavera” focuses on some of the ones left behind the wake of his brutality. The show spends a time recapping the surgical provisional in which Will and Abigail were dispatched in the Season 2 finale – a sequence that was already particularly nasty – and then throws Carrie-levels of blood at it. Never has the term blood bath been more applicable than it is here. Memory plays a key role in “Primavera,” as it’s presence lingers over this episode like the high ceilings of the Florentine chapel where Hannibal places his ‘heart.’

Hannibal Season 3 Antipasto Review

Hannibal
Season 3 Episode 1 “Antipasto”
Directed by Vincenzo Natali
Written by Bryan Fuller, Steve Lightfoot
Starring Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Gillian Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Eddie Izzard, Tom Wisdom, Zachary Quinto
NBC
Air date: Thursday, June 4, 2015, 10pm

Long ago, Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelson) was a supporting character in the visionary drama that bore his own name. But as the series has progressed, Dr. Lecter staked and hunted his way to the forefront, ripping through the show’s scenery and, in last year’s season finale, all of our major characters. It’s fitting then that the season three premiere begins with Dr. Lector taking control of the show in a very direct way: He stalks, he preys, he hunts, and he kills – all before the opening credits.

Bonsoir. Good evening.

Welcome back to Hannibal.

Haunter Header

A new clip has been released for an upcoming movie titled Haunter, and you can check it out along with the first trailer if you missed it below.

The movie stars Abigail Breslin as a girl who, along with her family, does the same things each and every day…because she and her family are ghosts. Sorry, not big twist ending here. At least not in relation to their spectral nature. The girl and her family were murdered by a man who’s now back in the house he killed them in, also as a spirit, and she must work with another young girl who is currently living in the house to stop him.

You can check out the new clip and the trailer for Haunter below.

Movie Review: Splice

Splice movie posterMovie Review: Splice
Directed by Vincenzo Natali
Starring Sarah Polley, Adrian Brody, Delphine Chanaec
Release date: June 4, 2010

On May 21, 2010, it was announced that Craig Ventor, made famous by his work on the Human Genome Project, had successfully created artificial, self-replicating life in a laboratory setting.

For the makers of Splice, the timing couldn’t have been better.

Canada, my own stomping ground, has a long and proud horror history that few people take notice of, and Splice is a smart edition to a genre that has been suffering from remake ennui. Warner Brothers, in conjunction with the good people at Dark Castle, have produced a smart, sexy modern day monster flick that pushes all the right buttons as the debate about biotechnology heats up.

Adrian Brody (The Pianist, King Kong) and Sarah Polley (Dawn of The Dead, Beowulf and Grendel) star as a pair of ultra-hip, cutting edge scientists in the employ of a global pharmaceutical company who have made a name for themselves designing artificial life forms. There first successful project was a pair named Fred and Ginger. The company hopes to profit on the enzymes that the pair create to cure livestock disease, but it’s the dream of the researchers hope to take their research to the next phase. In defiance of their corporate masters, they create a human genetic hybrid and that’s when the fit really hits the shan.
