NOS4A2 Featurette joe hill

Joe Hill‘s horror novel NOS4A2 comes to life in the form of an upcoming AMC series. In a new featurette, Hill talks about what it was like to see the world of his book brought to life for the series. “When a writer talks about having their story adapted, they all say the cliche things,” Hill says. “But it’s all true. It’s just incredibly thrilling to see all this stuff you lived with in your imagination suddenly set before you.” Watch the NOS4A2 featurette below.

NOS4A2 featurette

In the AMC series NOS4A2, Zachary Quinto plays a rather ancient-looking supernatural serial killer named Charlie Manx. Since Quinto looks even younger than his actual age of 41, the makers of NOS4A2 had to slap some serious make-up on him to pull off the appropriate look. In the NOS4A2 featurette below, watch as Quinto calmly checks his cellphone as make-up artists bury him in prosthetics.

NOS4A2 teaser

AMC is bringing a new vampire to television this summer. NOS4A2 is based on the book by Joe Hill, and showrunner Jami O’Brien adapted it for television. Zachary Quinto stars as Charlie Manx, a 135-year-old vampire who feeds off the energy of children. His make-up to transform into an ancient vampire is impressive, but NOS4A2’s biggest effects are seamless.

O’Brien and Hill spoke with reporters at WonderCon in Anaheim last week. Here’s what we learned.

NOS4A2 Review

At WonderCon in Anaheim, California this weekend, AMC announced that June 2 will see the premiere of their adaption of Joe Hill’s book, NOS4A2, which stars Zachary Quinto as the vampiric, Christmas-loving Charlie Manx, and Ashleigh Cummings as the young Vic McQueen, who tries to rescue his victims.

In addition to the release of a new trailer (which features children with pointy teeth and puts Manx and Vic clearly at odds with each other), WonderCon attendees also got a chance to see the full first episode of the series. The pilot is creepily good, with showrunner Jami O’Brien capturing the horror that fans of the book will instantly recognize.

NOS4A2 Trailer

AMC has plenty of zombies to spare with The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and the apparently endless array of spin-offs and movies they want to make in the coming years. But thankfully, they’re starting to diversify their horror slate with a little vampire terror.

NOS4A2 is a new series coming to AMC this June, based on Joe Hill‘s 2013 novel of the same name. The story follows a young woman named Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings) who finds herself drawn to lost things, especially people. But the way she finds them takes a toll on her, and it brings her face-to-face with an evil vampire (Zachary Quinto) who has been abducting children, feeding off their souls, and leaving them in a twisted alternate universe called Christmasland. Yeah, it’s a lot to take in, but the first NOS4A2 trailer makes it look rather compelling. Read More »

NOS4A2 Review

Joe Hill‘s NOS4A2 is a dense, twisty, unlikely tale, so it feels exactly right that the pilot episode of AMC’s adaptation should be so stubbornly unwilling to explain itself to viewers unfamiliar with the source material. Nothing is spelled out here; nothing is synopsized or tidily introduced. Unlike so many pilots – that act as a string of bite-sized quotes built in service of future “Previously on…” segments – NOS4A2 is interested only in telling this story at its own pace, with an admirable confidence that the audience will eventually catch up to where it’s going.

But even for those new to the world of Christmasland, to Charlie Manx and his Rolls-Royce Wraith, this first episode is deeply compelling, hooking viewers on an emotional, visceral level well before the plot fully reveals itself.
