The best show you’ve never seen gets a final season, thanks to Netflix.
As I wrote a few months back, before there was RoboCop, Joel Kinnaman was blowing my mind as Detective Stephen Holder on AMC’s serial killer drama “The Killing,” which was prematurely cancelled.

Now is the perfect time to catch up on the first three seasons, streaming on Netflix Instant. I promise that you’re going to loveee it.
Netflix is hoping to hype you on said series with the follow recap video. Personally, I say just go binge watch it all…

When Nina, a beautiful young immigrant from Romania, comes looking for her missing twin sister, she awakens in Carlos a kind of love he’d long since written off. As their relationship builds, based on secrets and deception, Nina’s pure innocence will become undeniable, even by Carlos, a man driven by a dark secret.

Mikkel Brænne Sandemose directed the film, which was written by John Kåre Raake. Pål Sverre Hagen, Nicolai Cleve Broch, Bjørn Sundquist, Sofia Helin, and Maria Annette Tanderød Berglyd star. Look for the flick in theatres, on iTunes, and on demand August 15th.
Archeologist Sigurd Svendsen (Pål Sverre Hagen) has for years been obsessed with the Oseberg Viking ship. The only inscription found on the ship is the enigmatic "man knows little" written in runes. Sigurd is sure that the Oseberg ship contains the answer to the mystery of Ragnarok, the end of days in Norse mythology. When his friend Allan finds similar runes on a stone from the north of Norway, Sigurd becomes convinced that the runes are in fact a treasure map. Together they mount an expedition group, and their adventure leads to the "No Man's Land" between Norway and Russia, which has been deserted for decades. Here Sigurd learns the true meaning of the runes - a secret more terrifying than he could possibly imagine.
Between 1963 and 1965, ABC aired 49 episodes of the strange and the macabre in "The Outer Limits" (review). Talk of a big screen adaptation has been ongoing for a few years now, but finally some steps in the right direction have been taken!
THR reports that Scott Derrickson, who just signed on to bring Marvel's Doctor Strange to life, is reuniting with his Sinister co-scribe C. Robert Cargill to write the big-screen take of the cult classic 1960s sci-fi TV series "The Outer Limits" for MGM.
Derrickson is a longtime fan of the show (he has said in the past he prefers it over "The Twilight Zone," as do I), and he and Cargill will focus on one episode in particular: "Demon With a Glass Hand," which was written by Harlan Ellison.
The duo will be tackling time travel, alien invasion and genetic manipulation in adapting the episode, which focused on a man with no memory beyond the last 10 days and a computerized hand who discovers he is from the future. The man is being hunted by an alien race who see him as key to their survival, but he soon discovers a more complex and terrifying truth.
Making the viral rounds this morning is a video of a terrifyingly realistic animatronic head made by special effects wizard Gustav Hoegen.
You can see the head in action in the below video that’s a year old. It makes me reflect back to the androids in films like Aliens (Lance Henriksen as ‘Bishop’) and Prometheus (Michael Fassbender as ‘David’) where I can’t help but wonder if they aren’t predicting the future…
This shit is unreal…
A few days ago we brought you the first teaser video for Lifetime's upcoming new series "The Lottery," and today we're back with a set of stills introducing us to the main characters.
Written by Timothy J. Sexton (Children of Men), the series stars Marley Shelton (Planet Terror, "Eleventh Hour"), Michael Graziadei ("American Horror Story"), David Alpay ("The Vampire Diaries"), Athena Karkanis ("Low Winter Sun"), Yul Vazquez ("Magic City"), Shelley Conn ("Terra Nova"), and Martin Donovan (The Haunting in Connecticut, "Homeland").
Can you imagine a world where women have stopped giving birth? Lifetime brings viewers to the year 2025 with the premiere of the provocative new conspiracy thriller "The Lottery" on Sunday, July 20, at 10PM ET/PT.
"The Lottery" is produced by Timothy J. Sexton alongside Rick Eid ("Hostages") and Dawn Olmstead ("Prison Break"). Danny Cannon ("CSI") directed and executive produced the pilot, which is from Grady Girl Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television.
Set within a dystopian future driven by a global fertility crisis, "The Lottery" reveals a world staring down the barrel of impending extinction as women have mysteriously stopped bearing children. After years of research, Dr. Alison Lennon (Shelton) and her team remarkably create 100 viable embryos. To determine which women will carry the prized embryos to term, a national lottery is held, and a battle over the control of the 100 embryos begins.
Syfy has announced the cast for “Z Nation,” a post-apocalyptic zombie series set to premiere this fall.
Variety writes that Harold Perrineau, pictured, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch and Kellita Smith have joined the ensemble drama from “Sharknado” production company The Asylum.
“In “Z Nation,” three years have passed since the zombie virus has gutted the country, and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world’s last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind’s survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.“
Perrineau will play Hammond, the leader of the group headed west; Scott will portray Garnett, Hammond’s second-in-command; and Qualls takes the role of Citizen Z, a computer hacker who joins the team and helps them navigate the zombie-infested terrain. Welch and Smith are Mack and Addy, respectively, two disparate wanderers drawn to the team — and to each other — by a shared goal: survival. Also in the ensemble are Anastasia Baranova as Addy, Russell Hodgkinson as Doc, and Keith Allan as Murphy.
John Hyams will direct the pilot.
There is nothing wrong with your computer screen. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. Scott Derrickson is controlling transmission…
Derrickson, who started off with The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Day the Earth Still, Sinister and the forthcoming Deliver Us From Evil is blowing the fuck up.
Not only has Derrickson signed on to helm Doctor Strange, but THR reports that he’s reuniting with his Sinister co-scribe C. Robert Cargill to write the big-screen take of the cult classic 1960s sci-fi TV series The Outer Limits!
Derrickson is a longtime fan of the show and he and Cargill will actually focus on one episode in particular: “Demon With a Glass Hand” (watch it below), which was written by Ellison.
The duo will be tackling time travel, alien invasion and genetic manipulation in adapting the episode, which focused on a man with no memory beyond the last 10 days and a computerized hand who discovers he is from the future. The man is being hunted by an alien race who see him as key to their survival but he soon discovers a more complex and terrifying truth.
“Outer Limits” was an influential anthology sci-fi and horror show that ran on ABC from 1963 to 1965. Like “The Twilight Zone,” the other famous anthology series from that era, the show had a well-known opening with a narrator telling viewers, “There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission…”
MGM is behind the project, which will be produced by Mark Victor via his Mark Victor Production.

Now released from a mental institution, Tim wants to move on, but his sister has other plans. Kaylie blames their childhood nightmare on the Lasser Glass—an antique mirror with a grisly history—which she intends to destroy by any means possible, even as the mysterious entity continues to cast sinister spells on anyone who gazes into it.“

In advance of an interview with make-up artist Mike Marino, AITH landed a series of behind-the-scenes images from The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister director Scott Derrickson’s Deliver Us From Evil, which are spiller heavy and insanely gory. It looks like we have some serious shit going down on July 2. Also, read about our visit to the set.
Starring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Joel McHale, and Sean Harris, “New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city. Based upon the book, which details Sarchie’s bone-chilling real-life cases.”
Earlier this year, the highly praised soundtrack to the cult classic anime Akira got a vinyl reissue. Now a 2xLP copy has just been announced and is available to pre-order through Bleep. The title begins shipping tomorrow and it’s unknown if this is a limited release or not. The soundtrack was composed by Yamashiro Shoji and performed by Geinoh Yamashirogumi.
It should be noted that there is talk that this release is unofficial and could pretty much be called a “bootleg”. However, nothing has been 100% confirmed either way, so keep that in mind if you’re a purist or you simply don’t care!
We’ve known for a couple weeks now that Capcom is working on bringing Dead Rising 3 to PC, we just weren’t sure when it would happen. Capcom took to Twitter earlier today to gift us with a release date of September 5. If you haven’t played it yet, I hear it’s pretty good.
It also just so happens that you can pre-purchase the game now as a part of Steam’s Summer Sale, which kicked off today.
We are also happy to confirm Dead Rising 3 PC's release date for September 5th. Yay!
