nightflyers series

There are procrastinators, then there’s George R.R. Martin. The Song of Ice and Fire author may have stepped back from his executive producer role in HBO’s Game of Thrones to focus on finishing his long-in-the-works book The Winds of Winter, but another shiny object has caught his eye lately: Syfy’s TV adaptation of Martin’s 1980 sci-fi horror novella, Nightflyers.

To be fair, Martin has been involved with talks about the series since spring of this year, but he’s back to giving us updates on his blog about the upcoming adaptation. The newest announcement: Syfy has picked up the series for a 10-episode first season.

deadly class first look

Deadly Class is the latest comic book to make the jump from the page to screen and Syfy could have a real winner on their hands. Rick Remender and Wesley Craig’s soul-searing tale of high school life in an academy for young assassins has been one of my favorite comics since it debuted in 2014, and a first look at the television adaptation’s cast reveals a group of kids who are in for a very rough couple of years.

Happy Trailer

There have been a lot of shows and movies about corrupt, broken down cops trying to make amends for their dirty deeds, but have any of those movies and shows paired the cop with an imaginary friend? No, they absolutely have not. But Happy! does exactly that. The new Syfy series adapts a graphic novel from Grant Morrison, and the first twisted trailer has just dropped to give you a sense of the lunacy on display. Watch the Happy series trailer below.

The Halloween season is upon us. You know the signs. Pumpkin everything, the coveted trip to Target’s seasonal section, and of course, the horror movie marathons. Horror is more popular than ever – look the long-running and massively popular anthology series American Horror Story. Look to the box office returns for It. People are eating up the horror genre like rabid zombies. As a self-proclaimed life-long horror nerd myself, I am living for it. However, as I make my hourly scan through social media, freak flags flying, inner witches let out of their summer sunshine cages, I can’t help but notice an absence of something. Channel Zero.

I did not hear about Channel Zero until three episodes into the first season, and a year later the puppets of Candle Cove (the subtitle for season one) still haunt me. While American Horror Story may have the market on the latest Hot Topic gear, Channel Zero is the underdog ready to usurp AHS’s crown. When it comes to story telling and overall horror appeal, this little six-episode SyFy show wipes the floor with the competition. The details of the first season aren’t foggy to me. I remember it clearly. For too long, AHS has favored gimmick and shock over real horror. There is a place for that, but we, as people that like good horror, need more.

Channel Zero is the answer to our unfulfilled nightmares. It is easily the scariest show on television…so why the hell aren’t you watching it?

channel zero no-end house

A new season of Channel Zero, one of the best horror shows you’re probably not watching, arrives tonight to give audiences the creeps.

While American Horror Story seems to receive all the attention once it arrives with a shrieking, confounding new season, the chilling, creeptastic Channel Zero exists on the fringes. Subtle, eerie and often surprisingly emotional, it’s the type of horror show that deserves far more buzz than it receives. Now, Channel Zero season 2 is here, featuring a first episode that’s better, and creepier, than 90% of most horror movies that hit the multiplex. Does the full Channel Zero season 2 manage to maintain the excitement of the first episode? Well, let’s talk about it.
