Skip, the nighttime janitor in an Old West theme park, delves into the mysteries surrounding an old locker. His sage supervisor recounts chilling tales that underscore the importance of making the right choice.
The recollection includes an aging boxer who is given an opportunity to become a real killing machine, a young man seeking membership in a secret society who experiences an initiation with deadly consequences, a would-be suicide shaken to his core by a menacing member of a very special club, and a hit man for hire playing a devious cat and mouse game with three women who have a score to settle.
The stories suddenly come into play when Skip makes an unsettling discovery and faces a life-or-death decision of his own.
Last week Squires told us about a mobile game on its way based on AMC's "The Walking Dead", and now comes word on The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game, a sequel to Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead: The Board Game set inside the world of the infamous prison.
Independent game developers MegaGigaOmniCorp and Top8Magic have launched a Kickstarter campaign for The Walking Dead: The Prison – Board Game, which features characters and artwork from Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic series.
In the game you and up to five of your friends will take on the role of one of the six leaders of the group: Rick, Tyreese, Glenn, Dale, Andrea, and Michonne.
The stand-alone project is fully supported by the team at Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment and is being developed by creators who worked on its predecessor, the hit 2011 game Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead: The Board Game, published by Z-Man Games, as well as a board game for "Lost." It features incredible artwork by series artist Charlie Adlard.
From The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game Kickstarter page:
The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game focuses on the events of Issues 13 through 24: the discovery of, fight to clean out, and struggle to control… The Prison.
The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game will have an MSRP of $49.99. Backers of The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game will not only be first to receive the game before it is in stores but also will have the opportunity to purchase the game at a lower price and have access to Kickstarter-exclusive game components and rule sets.
After months in the wild and on the run, Rick, Lori, Andrea, Glenn, and the rest of the survivors find the ultimate survival spot outside Atlanta, Georgia: a fenced in prison, still in good condition. Of course, it’s filled with zombies that need to be cleared, but before the survivors can do that, they learn all too quickly that they aren’t the only ones seeking refuge inside the prison. With existing tenants (Dexter, Axel, Thomas, and Andrew) to handle and new group members to integrate with (Michonne), the challenge of living in the prison isn’t just about fighting zombies...
The survivors end up struggling with each other for control over the group's fate.
Just about three weeks remain in the game's campaign. For more info visit The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game on Kickstarter.
Sgt. Wu is one of the few characters on "Grimm" unaware that Wesen exist. This past Friday he got the shock of his life when his friend's unborn baby was almost eaten by one. Actor Reggie Lee sat down for a Q&A about where that leaves him now.
Q: What about Sergeant Wu's future? And will we find out more about Wu's personal life?
Reggie Lee: We're shooting Episode 19. You've seen 14, but he's a sharp guy and the writers are smart. So it's like there are little hints here and there that are kind of funny that you'll see.
And yes, this effect on me lingers. It'll linger for quite a bit. And it'll probably linger through the rest of the season. But he's a sharp guy, so there's some real wonderful moments here and there as we go through the season that he's like, "Hmmm. Hmmm. What are you doing here? Why are you spending so much time with this person? I have no idea why, but something - there's something here." So I just laugh at those moments in the script because I'm like, wow... for you guys that follow the show on a very close basis, it's going to be a treat. It's a treat to see these little moments that Wu has through the season. So yes, there will be more things.
Q: So in this episode it seems like Wu had a crush on the woman who's married, but obviously that's not going to work. So is there anything else maybe coming up for him? A different romantic interest or anything like that? And would you want that for him?
Reggie Lee: Of course I want that for him. Of course... people always ask me kind of like what I'd love to do in the future, and that's actually on my bucket list of things that I want to have in my career. You know, something on screen like that -- kind of a love interest in one way or another. I think that you may see it. I think again, we all have our lanes on the show. There's a certain lane that we're in, and I think that the balance of... for me at least... I think there needs to be a balance on the show of couples and people that are not coupled. Like people that know and people that don't know [about Nick].
So how they keep that balance, I don't know. You know, how they want to keep that balance, I don't know. I know they've said [they] like that he's a single guy. [They] like that. So there may be that, but it's got to be - it's inevitable, you know, for the future that something like that will happen. So we're hoping for it, but they do like that balance.
That's so vague, the answer that I just gave you… But it's something that I want. So depending on what - if they want to tip the scales, they will. And they're not afraid to; they're not afraid to. But I really enjoyed this episode… this back story of having feelings for this girl and seeing if I still have them, if I didn't have them… I loved it so much. I loved experiencing that again within the show.
Q: Obviously you can't say whether or not he is going to find out what's going on or how that's going to end, but can you just talk about if he does find out that there's this secret world of Wesen, how do you think that will affect him, change him, as a character?
Reggie Lee: The way… the way that it's affected me initially is because it's something that I had heard of before. So it's very different from anyone else's reaction because I think it's… certainly things that they hadn't heard about before, but they're seeing. This is - it's so incredibly -- in the Philippines -- realistic. I mean, you know, it's an island country so it's very… people don't have a lot to do so they get really, really entrenched in these stories and believe them.
So in the outcome that it has on me, I think it'll linger quite a bit before I start to kind of not want to or want to figure it out for myself. But the effect of it being humongous for me. I think that's going to have to subside before I decide one way or the other. And you'll be surprised I think at which person in the cast sways me to one way or the other because it's not one that you'd expect. And that's to come.
Q: This royal baby is now in the picture. How is that going to change the landscape for everyone involved?
Reggie Lee: It's going to be complete chaos... I think you can expect complete chaos to ensue. So it's been forthcoming this entire season. And people have been expecting it… and it's interesting because it's such a part of a world that I'm not privy to, but privy to only in that I read them in my scripts… the things that I've read have really been fantastic in terms of the way this baby is used to sway emotion in so many different people. And it'll hit probably almost every single cast member, this baby. So it's pretty great.
Q: Including Wu?
Reggie Lee: Possibly.
Q: How many more years, decades, would you like to see "Grimm" go?
Reggie Lee: Oh, boy… listen, I think that there's always kind of a certain season life to a show… well, there are shows like "Law & Order" that go on forever. I really think the show could go on for a long time. If you can get to Season 13 of a show… I think the show could go there… it would just be up to the showrunners to see if they would want it. There's things like "Lost," you know, that have a definite ending. You've got to end that show at some point. But with this show I think there's so many more creatures in Portland… so many more… that I think it could go on forever.
Our thanks to Reggie for his time, moderator Akiva Griffith, and everyone at NBC Universal Television.

We haven't heard much about Spirit in the Woods since August of 2013, but with the found footage film getting a March 15th VOD release from Gravitas Ventures, a new official trailer has arrived.
Directed by Anthony Daniel, the film stars Adrian Denzel, Ashley Fast, Heidi Lewandowski, Kinsley Funari, Ricky Valentino, and Taylor Patterson.
Spirit in the Woods is a found footage, horror-suspense film based on the stories of Aokigahara, better known around the world as Suicide Forest.
As a final assignment for their biology class, a group of college students decide to venture out into the Spiritual Woods, a purportedly paranormal hotspot in the northern Ohio area. Although the woods are the stuff of urban legend around town, with tales of pure evil dating all the way back to the dark ages, the five friends are undeterred. What starts off as a fun adventure soon takes a turn for the worse. When darkness begins to settle in over the woods, the friends find themselves lost as the terror all around them begins to mount with each passing second.
Determined to survive the night by sticking together, they soon come to realize that the Spiritual Woods have plans of their own. By the end of the night, they'll have come face to face with their worst nightmares.
We're closing in on the April premiere of WGN America's "Salem," and a new promo video for the show has popped in that ominously states, "The Devil is never going to let a Promised Land be built here without a battle."
In “Salem” witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.
“Salem,” premiering on Sunday, April 20th, enters the world of the most notorious witch trials in history, a period steeped in fear, suspicion, and hysteria. On an expansive set in Shreveport, Louisiana, built to reflect volatile 17th century Massachusetts, “Salem” explores what really fueled the town's infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them.

Jai Courtney scored the role of Kyle Reese in Paramount and Skydance's Terminator: Genesis, and recently he sat down with IGN to talk a little about the role and the upcoming film. Read on for details.
"I've always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted. I remember when [A Good Day to] Die Hard came around a few years ago, I was like, 'Really? They're gonna make another one?' and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it," said Courtney.
"I think it's healthy to have that [skepticism] because you want it to be something [special], you want to keep that eye for quality sharp."
"But when I read this, I was pretty into it and the story's cool," Courtney continued. "It's attached a great cast as well. I think Emilia Clarke's wonderful and she's got a lot of support and stuff behind her. And Jason Clarke as well I'm a big admirer of so, yeah, it's gonna be really cool, man. I'm looking forward to doing that, and running around with Arnie won't be too bad."
Terminator: Genesis begins filming soon in Louisiana under the direction of Alan Taylor (Thor 2) for a July 1, 2015, release.

As Rice told the "People of the Page," as her Facebook page followers are called, prior to tonight's #AnneRiceReveal: "I couldn’t be more excited.

Good ol' Lionsgate came through today for Sasquatchploitation fans as they just snapped up the North American distro rights for Ed Sanchez's (The Blair Witch Project) new Bigfoot film, Exists, following its SXSW Midnighters screening last night.

In Bigfoot’s bold return to the big screen, five friends on a camping weekend in the remote woods of East Texas struggle to survive against a legendary predator that is stronger, smarter, and more terrifying than anything they would have ever believed exists.
The film stars Chris Osborn, Dora Madison Burge, Roger Edwards, Samuel Davis, Denise Williamson, and Brian Steele and is produced by Jane Fleming, Mark Ordesky, Robin Cowie, and J. Andrew Jenkins. EXISTS, written by Jamie Nash, is executive produced by George Waud, D. Todd Shepherd, Gregg Hale, and Reed Frerichs, and the Sasquatch creature was designed by Spectral Motion.

“I’m really excited about working with the talented team at Lionsgate. We’ve had great history together, and they really understand EXISTS and see the tremendous opportunity to reboot Bigfoot for a new generation,” said director Sanchez.
Fleming and Ordesky, who developed and produced the film with Haxan Films through their production company Court Five, said, “It is especially gratifying to sell the film at SXSW in Austin so close to Bastrop, Texas, where we shot EXISTS with an amazing Texas-based cast and crew. We look forward to working with Lionsgate to bring Ed’s vision to the masses.”
We learned a few weeks ago that Season 4 of "Being Human" would be its last, but its cast and crew have known for quite some time... and even asked for it! Series star Sam Witwer recently chatted with DweebCast, revealing that and a lot more.
During the course of his below video interview with host Andy Riesmeyer, Witwer explains how he and the rest of the cast have known of the approaching series end for more than a year and wishes the fans had been notified a bit earlier.
He also describes some of the financial reasons for the cancellation once Universal acquired the show and how the producers and actors are happy because they feel they get to end "Being Human" in the best way possible and on their terms.
When asked if the show might possibly be resurrected at some future date a la "Arrested Development," Witwer says absolutely not. "You should see the end of this show; you can’t really bring it back after the end of the show," he says with a laugh, adding, "If you’re going to finish a show right, you shouldn’t be able to continue the show... we have made some very specific, definite, no turning back moves in this season."
There are a few other tidbits so check out the whole chat, and be sure to watch the final few episodes; according to Sam, "There were things that we did in this season that Syfy wouldn't allow us to do in other seasons... It will leave us in a different place when it's all said and done."
