At a Q&A session for STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, actress Mary Chieffo describes herself as a “giddy Klingon.” Someone points out that this is perhaps the first and only time the phrase “giddy Klingon” has ever been uttered, but it is accurate. Chieffo (pronounced Chief-Oh) plays the Klingon warrior L’Rell, and she is absolutely giddy about having the opportunity to be part of the STAR TREK franchise. STAR TREK: DISCOVERY premiered on the broadcast CBS network. The premiere and all subsequent episodes will be available (a new one coming out each Sunday over fifteen weeks) on CBS All-Access. Set ten years […]Read On »

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of Joss Whedon’s groundbreaking, cult-adored, academically-studied TV series BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. The series, which ran for five years on The WB and another two on UPN (both of which have since merged into The CW) starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy Summers, an initially reluctant Slayer who was destined to kill monsters and prevent the end of the world (a lot) in the town of Sunnydale, California. Camden Toy played three of Buffy’s most iconic nemeses, and then went over to the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER spinoff ANGEL to play yet another monster. […]Read On »

After a lot of behind-the-scenes back-and-forth (changes in premiere date, changes in show runner), CBS All-Access’ STAR TREK: DISCOVERY has announced its first three regular cast members. Doug Jones, one of filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro’s favorite actors (he’s the Faun and the Pale Man in PAN’S LABYRINTH, Abe Sapien in the HELLBOY movies, an unknown character in Del Toro’s upcoming THE SHAPE OF WATER and more), plays Lt. Saru, a member of an alien species not seen before in the STAR TREK universe. Jones has played aliens before, including Cochise on the last several seasons of FALLING SKIES and Dominique […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Annalise Basso, Elizabeth Reaser, Lulu Wilson, Henry Thomas, Doug Jones Writers: Mike Flanagan & Jeff Howard, based on characters created by Juliet Snowden & Stiles White Director: Mike Flanagan Distributor: Universal Release Date: October 20, 2016 OUIJA: THE ORIGIN OF EVIL is a sequel, or rather a prequel, far superior to its 2014 predecessor. For starters, it makes much more sense and has many more organic scares. Those who pay attention to character names will realize what story we’re watching. Otherwise, apart from the Ouija board of the title, we have to wait for a brief post-credits […]Read On »

THE STRAIN creator Guillermo del Toro on his new nasty vamp series

FX’s new series THE STRAIN, Sundays at 10 PM, brings horror back to the vampire mythology. Forget the charmers of TRUE BLOOD, BEING HUMAN, et al, or even Bela Lugosi – these things are hideous, terrifying and breeding like Ebola virus. Worse, they’re in New York City. Center for Disease Control researchers Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) want to combat the plague, but so far aren’t sure how to do so; pawn shop owner Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), who’s had experience with the creatures before, and city exterminator Vasily Fet (Kevin Durand) may have some ideas.
