by Kevin Fitzpatrick a day ago
NBC's 'Constantine' hasn't exactly lit the world on fire since its October debut, at least in the manner its DC compatriots have, but the network isn't quite giving up on its demon detective drama just yet. NBC has decided to halt production on the series after 13 episodes, but may yet opt for a second season, should fans continue to reflect interest in the series.

by Britt Hayes 2 days ago
For fans of R.L. Stine’s classic ‘Goosebumps’ book series, it’s hard to imagine how those diverse books will translate to one movie adaptation. With stories of mummies, evil dummies, various monsters and ghouls—how can they pack all that and Jack Black into one film? We’ve long wondered just how many monsters the film would feature, and now thanks to these new monster portraits, we’ve got an idea. The answer is a whole bunch, including a few that readers will no doubt recognize.

‘The Stand’ Adaptation Has Now Been Expanded to Four Films

by Britt Hayes 5 days ago
Stephen King's 'The Stand' is a project that has struggled to find its way to the big screen for many years now, but in the hands of 'The Fault in Our Stars' director Josh Boone, it's finally picking up serious steam and the adaptation has felt more promising than ever. Whether or not Boone could take King's epic novel and translate it into one film has been a lingering question, and one that Boone has finally answered: No, 'The Stand' will not be just one film. Instead, it will be a shocking four-film adaptation, which seems excessive even for fans of the novel.

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Review: "Test of Strength"

by Britt Hayes 5 days ago
Welcome to another episode of ‘Soap Opera: Freak Show,’ in which we’ve (hopefully) reached peak melodrama. Although Jessica Lange’s Elsa subdues herself somewhat in “Test of Strength,” allowing for more theatrical performances from the father/son bonding of Michael Chiklis’ Dell and Evan Peters’ Jimmy, there’s still way too much heightened drama and not enough of that horror that the show’s title promises. And where’s all the bonkers weirdness that we’ve come to love from Ryan Murphy and Co.? This season has worked itself into a woefully boring rut.

20th Century Fox
A great many eons ago, revered Alan Moore-Eddie Campbell graphic novel ‘From Hell’ slashed into theaters with a mediocre Johnny Depp-led take on the Jack the Ripper tale. And while Moore famously criticized the adaptation to hell and back, 20th Century Fox may yet try again to adapt ‘From Hell’ as an FX event miniseries in the future.

'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' Will Now Be a Scary Story Told by Writer of 'Frankenweenie'

by Britt Hayes November 17, 2014 06:37 PM
It's been almost a year since we've heard anything about the big screen adaptation of beloved children's horror book series ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.’ But rest assured, CBS Films is still fully committed to this odd adaptation, and have now hired screenwriter John August, who last wrote the 2012 Tim Burton film ‘Frankenweenie.’ As that film was both a return to form of sorts for Burton and delivered a charming, spooky and kooky kid-friendly narrative, the hiring of August could be promising.

MTV’s ‘Scream’ TV Series: Will the New Ghostface Mask Be Made of Human Flesh?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick November 17, 2014 09:36 AM
Unsurprising as it was to see MTV joining the movie-TV reboot trend with an adaptation of iconic teen horror thriller ‘Scream,’ we have to admit a bit of pause with the notion of MTV’s rendition ditching the iconic “Ghostface” mask. Now, producers have gone on record to confirm that while “Ghostface” is no more, in its place will be a “darker” take on the classic look, potentially one made of human skin.
