After successfully bringing the formative years of Psycho killer Norman Bates to the small screen with Bates Motel, A&E is bringing another iconic horror character to television.
Damien is a series adaptation and continuation of the 1976 horror classic The Omen. The series hails from former The Walking Dead executive producer Glen Mazzara and picks up 25 years after the original film, when the Antichrist child known as Damien is all grown up. If you’re curious as to how this series adaptation might turn out, a quick teaser trailer has just surfaced online.

The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds. In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode, Dave, Devindra, and Adam chat with Peter Sciretta and Alex Billington about their film festival travels (including a run-in with an irate Harvey Weinstein), assess the greatness of Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Sudden Death, and debate what makes an Oscar-worthy performance. Erc D. Snider joins in on the fun as well.
