At today’s TCA session, BBC America announced that they’re so impressed with the new supernatural series BEDLAM that they decided to move up its airdate from October 8 to October 1 so it can follow the season finale of DOCTOR WHO. The series is set in an old Victorian lunatic asylum that’s been converted into apartments and follows a young man name Jed (Theo James) who begins to have visions of the ghosts that are still residing there – and those ghosts are very angry. “We were influenced by THE SHINING and Japanese horror films,” says creator David Allison. “We …Read On »

CD Review: ZOMBI 2 / A CAT IN THE BRAIN soundtrack

ZOMBI 2 / A CAT IN THE BRAIN soundtrack | ©2011 Beat Records

Where rock fans stateside were grooving the progressive rock of groups like Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Italian horror auteurs were using the guitar and synth vibes for far bloodier ends. And if Dario Argento was linked at the hip to the rhythmic murder operas of Goblin in DEEP RED, SUSPIRIA and DAWN OF THE DEAD, than the infinitely gorier Lucio Fulci was joined in the intestine to the creepily mod sound of Fabio Frizzi for such infamously stylish splatterfests like THE BEYOND, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD and MANHATTAN BABY. Now Beat Records has paired Frizzi’s scores from two movies …Read On »

CD review: THE BLOB original soundtrack (2,000 edition)

THE BLOB original soundtrack | ©2011 La La Land Records

Ahhh, to be back in the synth-driven days of horror scoring, especially covered in red, keyboard goo, voices, dark strings and feverish percussion that accompanies the 1988 BLOB- all placed into an undulating musical mass by Michael Hoenig. Having played with Tangerine Dream, Hoenig’s first synth credit was gracing GALAXY OF TERROR before establishing his own composing chops on such genre cult favorites as MAX HEADROOM, THE WRAITH, THE GATE and I, MADMAN. While THE BLOB’s music seems to be all effectively shapeless stings dribbling tones, and militarism for the true government bio-villains, Hoenig’s score really kicks into gear during …Read On »

While speaking with FRINGE executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman this morning, they revealed a tiny bit about what the Season 3 finale plans will be. “We have sort of approached each end of season to be the end of story for year and also open up the door and imply and be first taste of what next seasons story telling would be,” says Wyman. “We believe this season finale does that. Hopefully it will be wholly unexpected and recontexualize the story of Season 3 in a way and be mind-blowing.” Wyman does confirm an important character will die, …Read On »
