When American Horror Story: Freakshow debuted in October of 2014 there was some doubt about whether or not it would be the last incarnation of the serial show. From the beginning American Horror Story has been one of only a few TV shows to take on a serialized format where each season was an entirely different story and setting with the same actors playing new roles. Each season was one complete story where the story wrapped up in the season finale. Freakshow had a record setting premiere and audiences embraced the unique storyline set in the 1950s in Florida and following the stories of Elsa Mars and her stable of sideshow freaks. Thanks to the huge popularity of this chapter of the story the show was renewed early on in the season.

But there was some doubt about the casting of the show because one of the fan favorites Jessica…

Fans of the original Poltergeist film have been waiting with a mix of anticipation and dread to see the trailer for the new Poltergeist reboot coming this summer. Originally the new version of Poltergeist was supposed to debut around this time but it got moved to the summer and is currently slated for release in July 2015. All eyes were on the trailer to see if the film would be able to find the right balance between the original and the new.

A Risky Reboot
The reboot was a risky proposition from the start. Poltergeist is one of the most iconic horror films in history and is one of the genre defining films of 80s horror films. Poltergeist ushered in an entirely new type of horror film in the early 80s and became the film that defined 80s horror. To remake a film that had such a huge impact on…

gaThe new promotional material for the second half of Season 5 of The Walking Dead confirms fan speculation that the group is heading out of Georgia. The map that Abraham left for Rick when Abraham and the others set off for Washington and left Rick’s group at the church is proof that the group will be moving on. Also, the Alexandria Safe-Zone set was built in Senoia, GA where the show films over the summer and the fall. It is very likely that the group will try to take Noah to Richmond to find his family.

These horror stories prove that no matter how scary shows and movies like The Walking Dead are humans have much more to fear from each other than any monster that they might encounter.

ZombieApocalypseA staggering amount of people believe that a zombie apocalypse could happen within their lifetime. More people have zombie disaster plans than have plans for things like floods, fires, and other natural disasters. Even the Federal government acknowledged the possibility of a zombie apocalypse when the CDC used a fictional zombie apocalypse as the basis for a pamphlet explaining how people should create an emergency plan. But how likely is a zombie apocalypse really? More likely than you might think. Check out some of these terrifying real life things that could ultimately cause a full blown zombie apocalypse:

Drugs
Bath salts, cocaine, meth and other drugs are known to produce extreme behavior and paranoia in people who use them. Most people were horrified when people who had used bath salts turned on other people and started to eat them, much the way that zombies would. There is a strong possibility…

It’s no secret that the Star Wars prequel trilogy was a universal disappointment to fans. Jar Jar Binks was probably the worst conceived character in the entire Star Wars pantheon, but he wasn’t the only problem with that trilogy. Fans are a little skeptical that the new trilogy, starting with Episode VII, The Force Awakens will be any better. But this time they have to get the films right because the story is picking up the story of Luke, Leia and Han Solo and fans will riot if these films are not done well. The purchase of Star Wars by Disney and the involvement of J.J. Abrams as both director and co-writer of the first film bodes well for the film. Fans are already excited by the trailer for The Force Awakens which was recently released.

Proving that movie studios are going to keep churning out as many comic properties as they can buy Warner Bros studio announced recently that it has no less than 10 films on the schedule based on DC comic superheroes. Some of those films will be crossovers and will feature several heroes from within the DC universe. Others will be based solely on one superhero figure although some of the other DC characters will probably end up making cameo appearances. The films are staggered, with some of them not appearing for another six years, but Warner Bros wanted to let fans know that their favorite comic superheroes will be making their way to the big screen eventually. Well some of them will. Notoriously absent from the superheroes who got their own films are fan favorites like Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. A Sandman movie is in production, but is going to be released…

zombiielandFans of the original Zombieland cult classic film have been waiting anxiously for news about a sequel. So far news has been hard to get because the project has been stalled out. But recently it seems that Zombieland 2 got a push forward when it was confirmed that Sony Pictures has hired Dave Callaham to write the sequel, Zombieland 2. Callaham wrote The Expendables script and has worked on other dark scripts in the past so he is a good choice to write the sequel. Unfortunately there is no director assigned to the project yet and the stars of the film have been silent on what role if any they want in the sequel. Since the original film several of the stars have gone on to quite successful careers and they might not want to revisit their Zombieland past. Only time will tell at this point.

Zombie films are trendy…
