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.

This month marked the tenth anniversary of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse, an experiment the directors intended to replicate the experience of visiting a 1970s-style grindhouse theater. Although three spin-off movies have been made based on the fake trailers included in the presentation (Machete, Machete Kills, and Hobo with a Shotgun), Grindhouse flopped at the box office.
But now, a decade later, that spirit is being resurrected in a new Syfy series called Blood Drive. Are you ready for a show about cars that run on human blood? Buckle up.

Not to be outdone by his best frenemy (and fellow Martha fan) Batman, Superman is also getting his own hometown prequel TV series.

Gale Anne Hurd has made movies about aliens. In fact, one of the greatest of all time, the sequel Aliens. She also produced one of my personal favorites, Alien Nation. So the news that Gale Anne Hurd is back in the alien game should mean a lot. She is producing the new show Hunters on Syfy.
Hunters is about a race of alien terrorists who have infiltrated humanity, and the FBI agents who pursue them, including a Hunter working for us. Natalie Chaidez developed the adaptation of Whitley Strieber’s book Alien Hunter for television. We got to speak with Hurd after her Hunters panel for the Television Critics Association. Hunters premieres Monday, April 11 at 10PM on Syfy. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
SyFy has never been shy about making movies that are clearly meant to be terrible. We’re talking about a network who has release movies with titles such as Rock Monster, Ice Spiders and of course, the Sharknado franchise, which has opted to not only jump the shark, but thrown them around in a bloody cyclone of nonsense. And now they’re bringing some nostalgic flare into the fray for their latest awful TV movie.
Dead 7 is a horror western that rounds up the fallen stars of 90s boy bands such as Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, 98 Degrees and O-Town and has them all facing off against a horde of zombies. It’s an amazing time to be alive. Read More »
