Syfy’s new series Hunters could be a cross between V and Homeland. An FBI agent discovers a terrorist organization called Hunters, who are actually aliens from another world. Nathan Phillips and Britne Oldford play agents pursuing the Hunters, and Julian McMahon plays the main Hunter.
Hunters is produced by Natalie Chaidez and Gale Anne Hurd, adapted from the book Alien Hunter by Whitley Strieber. We got to speak with Chaidez, who also used to produce Syfy’s 12 Monkeys, after her Hunters panel for the Television Critics Association. Hunters premieres Monday, April 11 at 10PM on Syfy.

It may be hard to imagine now, what with spring just barely starting to creep in across much of the country, but there will come a time in the not-too-distant future when you’re sweltering in the summer heat. When that day comes, you might welcome some spine-tingling chills to turn the blood in your veins to ice. And when you’re looking for something to do just that, The Bye Bye Man hopes you’ll give it a spin.
Directed by Stacy Title, the horror-thriller centers on a group of college kids who come across the “Bye Bye Man,” a mysterious and malevolent force. It turns out this monster has a nasty habit of possessing people and committing unspeakable atrocities. Oh, and he’s played by the wonderful Doug Jones, which makes him seem more interesting already. Watch the Bye Bye Man trailer after the jump. Read More »
Even though services like The Screening Room are looking to bring theatrical movies into your home, there are plenty of movie fans who understand that the movie theater can still be the most magical place to see a theater. There’s just something special about seeing a movie with the right crowd and having a whole community of strangers being entertained by the flickering images on the big screen.
Watching movies at home on Netflix may be fun, but we can’t let the movie theater experience go by the wayside, especially when it can be the coolest way to discover a movie that you might have missed the first time around. That’s exactly what’s happening with Todd Strauss-Schulson‘s horror comedy The Final Girls.
The Final Girls came and went last year without much pomp and circumstance, despite a slew of great reviews and festival buzz from South by Southwest. But in recent months, it’s starting to become a cult classic, and it’s a modern flick that’s keeping the magic of the midnight movie alive in really fun ways. And if you’re in New York City, you can partake in this special occasion. Plus, check out some incredible guerrilla street art hidden around the city promoting the special midnight screening of The Final Girls below. Read More »
Yesterday, a Hollywood Reporter story revealed that Warner Bros. doesn’t want to take risks on smaller projects in the wake of Batman v Superman‘s tumultuous box office and will make fewer movies, focusing on major tentpole releases. We may already be seeing the impact of this new policy: director Adam Wingard‘s adaptation of Death Note has been dropped by the studio. Thankfully, Netflix arrived to pick it up.

Damien, the A&E series based on the film The Omen, premiered March 7. So with three episodes on the air, the cast and series creator Glen Mazzara, formerly of The Walking Dead, gave a panel at Wodercon. In a press room roundtable, Mazzara told reporters we’ve only seen the beginning of how dark Damien will get.
“The show’s going to get darker,” Mazzara said. “It gets really dark. We have some episodes coming up that really, I think, are going to push the limit. It’ll be interesting to see how people respond to it. I don’t think it ever gets gratuitous or anything but we go into some pretty dark territory. It’ll be interesting to see how the middle of the season plays because that stuff is really taking risks. The end of the season I think is just a freight train. It just races and I’m really, really proud of the finale. I think people will be pleased when they see how it all comes together and all the questions people have about Damien I think are going to be answered. I’m excited for people to see it.” Read More »

A few years ago, I made a pilgrimage to the original locations where Tobe Hooper shot his 1974 horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and wrote about the experience at ScreenCrush. The home of the cannibalistic Sawyer family has been relocated to Kingsland, Texas, where it is now a quaint restaurant. The original site of the house now overlooks an overpass and the developers are closing in. You can now see a Little Caesar’s and a Crossfit gym from the formerly isolated cemetery where the film begins. And the gas station where the Sawyer family cooks up their victims had fallen into miserable disrepair and looked ready to topple over in a stiff breeze.
But now, that dilapidated gas station in Bastrop, Texas is getting a second chance. Bilbo’s Texas Landmark is being transformed into a horror movie-themed barbecue restaurant and resort.

The new Ghostbusters movie has damn big shoes to fill. Ivan Reitman’s 1984 is a stone-cold classic that millions of Gen Xers and Millennials around the world have grown up with, and Ghostbusters II is remembered with great affection even if it’s not quite up to par. It’s hard to imagine anyone else quite replacing the original foursome, which may be why director Paul Feig isn’t really trying. There’s no “new Venkman,” or new Ray or Winston or Egon for that matter.
Instead, Feig’s serving up a whole new team. And if the trailers, posters, and images are any indication, this new gang is more than capable of keeping New York safe from supernatural forces. The latest Ghostbusters image shows the new Ghostbusters team lighting up their newly redesigned proton packs, and looking pretty damn cool doing it. Check it out below. Read More »
