SUPERNATURAL enters its eighth season this fall and while at Comic-Con 2012, ASSIGNMENT X got the scoop on what to expect from SUPERNATURAL Season 8. We chatted with a number of the cast and crew from SUPERNATURAL during the press event for the show and got the low-down on some of the episodes that will take place. This includes an episode directed by Jensen Ackles about Mayan gods and how what happened in the past is impacting people in the present day. “There was a deal in Mayan days and it is affecting people in the modern day where people’s […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Caity Lotz, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Haley Hudson, Sam Ball, Mark Steger, Agnes Bruckner, Casper Van Dien Writer: Nicholas McCarthy Director: Nicholas McCarthy Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: July 6, 2012 THE PACT turns out to be a scary low-budget horror movie that combines two different sorts of mythology, producing a few twists we haven’t seen before. It must be said that the film gets off to an uneven beginning. In the opening sequences, we can anticipate what the characters will say and what will happen, not because this is a meta-comment on what we’re watching, but because […]Read On »

CD Review: SILENT HILL: DOWNPOUR soundtrack

Daniel Licht certainly knows clever ways to kill people in the company of DEXTER, not to mention a gore-splattered musical past that includes HELLRAISER: BLOODLINE, THINNER and BAD MOON. It’s a set of eerie skills that suit him well for entering the video game netherworld for the first time with two entries into the SILENT HILL mythos. Up first is SILENT HILL: DOWNPOUR, which has an escaped convict being thrown into this twisted Twilight Zone after a Richard Kimble-style bus crash. Starting off DOWNPOUR with a bang is a catchy theme song by Korn’s Jonathan Davis, whose thrash makes it […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: GRIMM star David Giuntoli talks about Season 1 and beyond

One of NBC’s breakout series this year has been the supernatural cop show GRIMM which features David Giuntoli as Portland, Oregon cop Nick Burkhardt who discovers he comes from a long line of “Grimms.” Translation: he’s someone who can see and stop the supposedly mythological creatures that exist in our world who want to wreak havoc. The series premiered in the unfortunate Friday night at 9:00 time slot last fall, yet thrived and grew even with pre-emptions and stiff competition from like-minded series FRINGE and SUPERNATURAL also occupying that time slot. At a recent event, Giuntoli spoke with ASSIGNMENT X […]Read On »

TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Island of Dreams”

Stars: David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, Claire Coffee Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Rob Bailey Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 31, 2012 NBC is not doing GRIMM any favors with constantly preempting it and sending it on long hiatuses. The show is one of their major success stories for the network this year – and it’s been doing it in the dead zone of Friday night programming opposite two other similar genre shows FRINGE and SUPERNATURAL. It’s a shame, because if they could find a […]Read On »

TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Three Coins in a Fuchsbau”

Stars:David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Noberto Barba Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 2, 2012 The good news about GRIMM is it’s found a pretty comfortable weekly police procedural structure that always ends up involving monsters usually derived from the Grimm fairy tales. The bad news is the series tends to be a little redundant at times and the CGI-creature effects often take you out of the show. That said, “Three Coins in a Fuchsbau” is an okay episode that brings a little […]Read On »
