Back in May, production for season 4 of AMC's "The Walking Dead" kicked off, and this video's the proof.

Executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero (and more) talk about working with writer and new showrunner Scott Gimple as we see our band of survivors deal with another season of life after the apocalypse.



Heather Doerksen is about to go big. As one of the rising stars in the upcoming summer blockbuster 'Pacific Rim,' Doerksen is also one of the few female pilots of Jaegers, giant robot mechs that stand as humanity's last hope against a monster invasion.

We had the chance to chat with Doerksen over the phone in advance of the movie's release, and talked about the intense physical training she went through in order to pilot the Jaeger, working with director Guillermo Del Toro ("Hellboy"), and her upcoming projects with Marvel Knights Animation: Read More...


It feels like a classic opening setup for most sitcoms: Buddies Adam and Joe bicker as they rush to prepare the big anniversary dinner double-date before the girls arrive. The laugh track responds in kind to the buffoonery. That’s when the blood starts to spill. Fingers are cut to the bone, faces are melted off, a corkscrew screws a Corri -- then there’s a bad banana cream pie incident. And still the laugh track responds, growing in a maniacal intensity.

Such is the set up for “Holliston,” FEARnet’s comedy that is something of a “Big Bang Theory” for horror nerds.



"Warm Bodies" is an amusing riff on every teen romance, especially since this time it's a zombie who falls for the girl. R (Nicholas Holt) has to keep his zombie appetite in check after he becomes smitten with Julie (Teresa Palmer). Can a zombie in love make it in this post-apocalyptic world, especially when he is being hunted down by Julie's father, Colonel Gigio (John Malkovich)?

In honor of today's Blu-ray/DVD release, we sat down with writer/director Jonathan Levine about adapting Isaac Marion's zombie romance novel to the big screen, keeping actor Nicholas Hoult as a sweet zombie, and how he got viewers laughing while scaring them at the same time.

Are you an aspiring haunter? Maybe you're hoping to take your hobby of constructing haunted houses to the next level? Then you might want to talk to Ed and Marsha Edmunds, founders of animatronics and effects company Distortions Unlimited and stars of the Travel Channel series "Making Monsters." The couple came to Denver Comic Con to offer tips to would-be pro and amateur haunters, ranging to tips on how to design the best layout for large crowds to the virtues of using windshield wiper motors on your mechanical monsters.



The most interesting serial killer on TV (and it's a crowded field this year) is coming back for another 13 episodes as NBC signs off on a second season of "Hannibal."


Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson from 'Spider-Man 2'

J.K. Simmons did not yell at me in a recent interview, and I was a little disappointed. Although I hoped to be berated for pictures of Spider-Man, the man I spoke with didn’t affect the personality of flat-topped, cigar-chomping newspaperman J. Jonah Jameson from Sam Raimi’s webslinger trilogy.



We bring you a lot of Kickstarter recommendations around here, but this is the first I might have made based not simply on the title of the piece, but a joke about another film's title entirely.


Hey, it's not weird for horror movies about or featuring comics to be a thing, it's just interesting that a filmmaker has caught up to webcomics as a medium by which to extract some gruesome thrills.



Okay, so this one's kind of got a slow burn to it, but Marcus' short, about a pair of teens (Gus Lewis, Angelica Mandy) whose attempt at a romantic night on the town goes (spoilers) horribly, end-of-the-world awry. It takes its time to get where it's going via all of the domestic drama and Jamie's tension with his restrictive parents, but when thing rev up, it's nuts.



One of the great things about an anthology is getting a collection of interesting directors to play around in an interesting genre or milieu. The first "ABCs of Death" took it one step further, though, and nabbed 26 directors from around the world to tell weird, funny, and gross horror stories. Sure, they may not have all landed, but it was an interesting experiment.

Well, during Cannes, Magnet Releasing announced the production of a sequel, "The ABCs of Death 2," and the initial director's list is as odd and interesting as the film is likely to be.



On their official page, NECA revealed action figures from its "Nightmare on Elm Street Series" 4 line featuring the very clever "Power Glove Freddy" from "Freddy's Dead" and this creepy, soon-to-be classic, the "Springwood Slasher Fred Krueger" figure.



Filmmaker/actor Eli Roth made a grisly splash with 2002's gross-out horror comedy "Cabin Fever" earning the title of "the future of horror" from Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino then helped usher Roth's follow-ups "Hostel" and "Hostel 2" into theaters by "presenting" the films. Roth and Tarantino remain close collaborators and colleagues with Roth starring as the baseball bat-wielding Sgt. Donny Donowitz a.k.a. "The Bear Jew" in Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds." Roth is now using the clout he's earned for himself to help a new generation of horror and beyond get films made and released. Thus far he's produced "The Last Exorcism" and its sequel, "The Man with the Iron Fists," and more, including the new disaster film "Aftershock" from Chilean director Nicolás López.

Roth co-wrote and stars in the film that sees a handful of party-goers fighting for survival in the aftermath of a earthquake that's not only unleashed massive amounts of devastation, but a horde of psychotically violent maniacs from a local demolished prison.

I spoke with Roth over the phone about his involvement with "Aftershock," his decision to play nerdy American "Gringo," the importance of helping other filmmakers, and his next film as director, "The Green Inferno."


Walking Dead Banner

By Zack Smith

Too afraid of a zombie attack to sleep?  Don't worry -- you can now cuddle up with Rick Grimes or Daryl Dixon from AMC's "The Walking Dead" to help you feel safe.



CBS has released the first trailer for their 13-week adaptation of the small town sci-fi thriller "Under the Dome." And yep, those are definitely some characters in a small town trapped under a dome, so as far as it goes, writer Brian K. Vaughan is staying true-ish to Stephen King's utterly terrible novel.

Still, the writer behind "Y: The Last Man" has surely figured out more interesting story beats than "teen randomly goes crazy, starts filling a cabinet with women" or "meth-addicted religious fanatic makes friend, has very little bearing on the rest of the plot."
