Shameless” is getting an eleventh and final season, “Work in Progress” and “The L Word: Generation Q” will both get second seasons, and Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief looks exactly like Master Chief from the Xbox video game.

It was a busy morning for ViacomCBS’s premium cable network, whose co-presidents Gary Levine and Jana Winograde announced a suite of new and returning projects during the premium television network’s opening presentation at the Television Critics Association 2020 Winter Press Tour in Pasadena Monday. They also showed the gathered reporters a first look at “Halo,” the upcoming TV adaptation of the popular video game franchise. Though the photo wasn’t released online, rest assured the shot of a seated Pablo Schreiber in full, Master Chief combat gear looks nearly identical to what you’ve seen from Xbox for the past few decades.

Frightfest 2018: ‘Frankenstein’s Creature’ Review: Dir. Sam Ashurst (2018)

Frankenstein’s Creature review: Get ready for a very difference kind of film…

Frankenstien’s Creature review by Steve Palace.

Frankenstien’s Creature Review

Every so often as a critic you see something that just isn’t for you. A release that wouldn’t be described as lousy, just not your cup of tea, or in this case witches’ brew.

There’s certainly a lot to get your teeth into with Sam Ashurst’s Frankenstein’s Creature, written and breathlessly performed by James Swanton. The filmed play aspect of what is essentially… well, a filmed play. The black and white Expressionist look and crumbling Gothic set. And the unrelenting, challenging nature of the piece as a whole.

All of it sadly went over my head, but looking at other opinions I seem to be in the minority. If you like a largely static camera pointing at one actor delivering a

Masters Of Horror Rewatch: William Malone’s “Fair-Haired Child”

We’re in the home stretch of Masters of Horror Season One, and many of the genre’s biggest names have already been checked off the list: Carpenter, Landis, Hooper, Gordon, Dante, Coscarelli, Argento. That brings us to William Malone, probably the first Master who’s not already a household name among horror fans. And while his episode isn’t among the strongest of the first season, he does conjure up one of the series’ scariest images and embraces the surreal in a way the other installments have not. His is a worthy entry in the Masters of Horror run.

Season One, Episode 9

“Fair-Haired Child”

Director: William Malone

Original Air Date: January 6, 2006

William Malone is a guy who has always been around horror, but you might not know his name immediately because he’s so often been behind the scenes and has only made a handful of films. A lifelong Monster Kid,

Class of 1987: Creatures of the Night – Tom Noonan, Duncan Regehr, Tom Woodruff Jr., Carl Thibault & Michael Reid MacKay on Becoming The Monster Squad

Undoubtedly, one of the most beloved genre movies to come out of 1987 was Fred Dekker’s The Monster Squad, a perfect blend of humor, heart, and affection for the classic monsters so many of us grew up on. And while it may not have done great business at the box office when it was released in August of that year, The Monster Squad has deservedly become a true cult classic, and remains a brilliant gateway horror experience for younger viewers who are just becoming initiated in the ways of genre cinema.

With The Monster Squad’s 30th anniversary nearly upon us, and with our “Class of 1987” celebration currently in full swing, I thought this would make for a splendid opportunity to chat with the actors who put the “Monster” in “The Monster Squad” in the first place: Tom Noonan (“Frankenstein’s Monster”), Duncan Regehr (“Count Dracula”), Tom Woodruff Jr. (“the

Movie Review: Jurassic World

I was twelve years old when I first saw the original Jurassic Park in the theatres. For a kid obsessed with dinosaurs, it was a cinematic experience to remember. Based on the Michael Crichton novel and directed by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic Park was the movie event during the summer of 1993. Surely a big-budget remake helmed by a relative unknown director couldn’t capture the same magic as the original, right? Wrong.

Even though Jurassic World’s dinosaurs are 99% digital and not animatronic masterpieces from the Stan Winston Creature Shop, the adult version of me was no less thrilled to see them grace the screen for the first time. Mix that with hints of the familiar score, and I was putty in director Colin Trevorrow’s hands.

Jurassic World takes places twenty-two years after the original movie (and also effectively erases The Lost World: Jurassic Park [1997] and the regrettable Jurassic Park III

Unmasking “Batman: Dead End” Director Sandy Collora

Unmasking “Batman: Dead End” Director Sandy Collora
Tim Burton, Joel Schumacher, Christopher Nolan, and Zack Snyder have all done what most superhero junkies could only dream of doing: direct a Batman movie. But there was one other filmmaker privileged enough to have suited up the masked manhunter for cinema, achieving almost overnight success in 2003 and a cult classic amongst Batman fans—without the “superpowers” of a million dollar budget or the tyranny of studio executives. The director: Sandy Collora. The film: Batman: Dead End.

Behind The Mask”, a 90-minute documentary on the life and career of Sandy Collora, was shown recently at Monsterpalooza in Burbank, CA, telling the story of the indie filmmaker’s refusal to “sell out” to major studios and finding satisfaction in directing his own films.

For those unfamiliar with the super-hero/horror movie, Batman: Dead End (available for free online) is an 8-minute fan film made by director and creature creator Sandy Collora

When Jean-Claude Van Damme played Predator

Ryan Lambie Jul 6, 2016

In 1986, Jean-Claude Van Damme was the title alien in Predator before he was hurriedly recast. Ryan looks back at what happened...

In the mid-1980s, Belgian martial artist Jean-Claude Van Damme arrived in America with dreams of stardom. Possessing a finely-honed physique, thanks to years of training in (among other things) karate, kickboxing and ballet, he was ambitious and brimming with self-belief.

The acting bug bit Van Damme while he was still in his teens: he played “a bad guy with all the knives” in the 1984 French gangster movie Rue Barbare and, determined to further his goal of becoming an actor, hopped on a plane to Los Angeles. His first few years in America were, however, tough. He slept in a rental car for two weeks, and made money by teaching aerobics and martial arts, delivering pizzas, and working as a doorman at a restaurant belonging to Chuck Norris.

A practical effects guru and master monster maker with iconic films like The Terminator, Aliens, and Predator just being a few titles on his lengthy and legendary list of movie credits, Stan Winston was a great creator whose influence and legacy we explored in our recent Stan Winston Week celebration.
