Tim Burton and the studios are at it again! Taking a legendary franchise and turning it into a film that might just tarnish such a great name in TV history but also Horror history! We all remember the ABC run horror soap opera that ran from 1966 to 1971 with the dark Barnabas Collins and the first serious serial show to deal with the macabre. Now we get Johnny Depp as the Vampire Collins and im not quite sure how i feel about that. My problem is the campy style of Tim Burton's movies and taking a story and turning it into a fairy tale version versus what a modern day adaptation could be. We will see when the film opens later this year.

This Movie is beyond explanation. If you like Cheesy horror/gore with a healthy dose of sex then check it out.  It takes place at a Drive in movie theater that is about to close forever and is showing 4 lost Horror films on its last night, The first is "Wadzilla" and was directed and written by Adam Rifkin spoofing 1950s monster movies. The second segment is "I Was a Teenage Werebear" and was directed and written by Tim Sullivan which parodies Rebel Without a Cause, Grease and The Twilight Saga and is set in 1962. The third is called "The Diary of Anne Frankenstein" and was directed and written by Adam Green and spoofs Hitler and The Diary of Anne Frank. The last segment is "Zom B Movie", a spoof of zombie films, and was directed and written by Joe Lynch.

OK so lets have a discussion on Season 2 of The Walking Dead on AMC. As a horror TV show this is a instant classic not only from story and character angle but also the special effects and filming are on par with any big cinema release and may surpass even some of those. The big question is its a episodic show so I get that it has to have character development and cannot be action all the time. But this season seems to be taking the zombie out of the show and it is becoming more of a morality soap opera.  That being said in the first run of 6 episodes when they were looking for Sophia were some of the best in developing the groups dynamic we started to see how the characters delved into how the group thought of them as a person. We learn of a impending pregnancy by Lori and then we wonder if its Shane's or Ricks. Shane continues his struggle with Rick leading the group and how he should be the leader and only he can keep the group safe. This isn't meant to be a review or a blow by blow catch up its meant to wonder if the series is taking the character dynamic to far and sacrificing the scare a little bit.     

When a movie is based on maybe arguably America's first horror and detective fiction writer all we can do is hope and pray that it is worth wild. When i think of Edgar Allan Poe movies i always will think fondly of the Vincent Price films and what they brought to not only the progression of horror films but the spine tingling joy i got watching them on a Saturday night with Sven Ghoulie. But Rogue films has decided we need to re imagine the Poe story as Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack) teams with a Baltimore detective Inspector Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) to hunt down a killer who is using Poe's short stories as a back drop to his killings. One thing hopeful for the film is James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) is directing. The film also stars Kevin McNally and the lovely Alice Eve. Release date has been moved back is still up in the air.
