The news from the TV Upfronts is a bit light today on the horror side with just one project coming from TNT/TBS hitting our radar. Read on for the early word on "Portal House," which is in development by TNT.
"For a decade, we've been beating the drum the loudest -- that cable is as good as broadcast," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks. "Now, our industry has reached a tipping point. From creative strength to ratings power, cable has emerged as the leader in television. I'm proud of the role we've played at TNT and TBS. Today, we're looking toward the next horizon -- becoming a multiscreen video company serving multiple audiences."
This project is the story of a group of young scientists who, while investigating what they believe to be a haunted house, stumble upon a portal into the time-space continuum. Things then take a turn for the worse when one of their own vanishes into the portal.

From the Press Release
Global video game publisher 505 Games and leading independent developer Overkill Software, a Starbreeze Studio, are pleased to announce that the upcoming title PAYDAY 2, sequel to the 2011 hit PAYDAY: The Heist, will no longer be limited to digital download and will now additionally be released globally at retail for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Game Director on PAYDAY 2 David Goldfarb said, “We have a bit of a problem here at Overkill – there are just too many great ideas and none that we were really happy to throw out - so PAYDAY 2 has become just too big to reserve release on Xbox Live® and PlayStation®Network alone.”
“It’s an incredible position to be in, having a game that just keeps growing and getting better all the time,” added Head of Global Brand at 505 Games, Tim Woodley. “We wanted to do everything we could to make a game that truly fits the vision of the team at Overkill but most importantly delivers an exciting, rewarding experience for the player – be they a long-time fan or new to the series. We’re expecting great things from PAYDAY 2 and are really looking forward to working with our retail partners all over the world to make it the huge success it deserves to be.”
PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew – Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains – as they descend on Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree. The new CRIMENET network offers a huge range of dynamic contracts and players are free to choose anything from small-time convenience store hits or kidnappings, to major league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in D.C., why not participate in the local community and run a few political errands? Up to four friends co-operate on the hits and as the crew progresses the jobs become bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming a legendary criminal comes a new character customization and crafting system that lets crews build and customize their own guns and gear.
PAYDAY 2 will release for consoles and PC, via Steam, in August 2013.

Week in and week out, "Grimm" delivers a good time - and some pretty cool creatures - so we're sad to see its second season end, but it looks like we're in for a doozy of a finale. Here are a preview and some photos to help get you ready for it.
Episode 2.22 - "Goodnight, Sweet Prince" (airing 5/21/13; 10:00-11:00 pm)
THE ROYALS BRING THEIR AGENDA FOR NICK TO PORTLAND – JAMES FRAIN AND SHOHREH AGHDASHLOO GUEST STAR -- Just when things look like they’re back to normal with Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch), Nick (David Giuntoli) is called to investigate a flurry of rage-fueled assaults happening all over Portland. He goes to Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) for help battling Portland’s newest wave of “undead.”
As if that weren’t enough, Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz) informs Nick that his brother Eric (guest star James Frain) is in town on family business. Meanwhile, Stefania (guest star Shohreh Aghdashloo) and Frau Pech methodically use their alliances with Adalind (Claire Coffee) to battle one another. Russell Hornsby and Reggie Lee also star.
Good news, Friday fans! The official Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th website has launched, and we have all the details you need to get primed and ready for the ultimate Friday the 13th documentary! Check it out!
With a running time of approximately seven hours, Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th explores each film -- from the seminal 1980 slasher hit to the 2009 reboot, including the hit syndicated television series -- in chronological order and promises to be the definitive retrospective on one of the most enduring horror franchises in motion picture history.
Writer/director Daniel Farrands says, "I'm very proud that my passion (and obsession) with all things Friday the 13th, which started when I was 12 years old, has finally come full circle. What started out as a pipe dream ten years ago when I first teamed up with Peter Bracke on his incredible book has taken on a whole new life with our companion documentary. I hope fans will be as thrilled as we are with this epic look back on the Friday the 13th series.
Thommy Hutson shares his sentiments about his journey with the project.
“I am thrilled that the show has come together so beautifully,” says producer Thommy Hutson. “After a year of production, so many amazing, new interviews, and locating incredible materials, Crystal Lake Memories will absolutely be the embodiment of ‘definitive’ when it comes to telling the story of the Friday franchise, not to mention bringing Peter Bracke’s amazing book to life. We couldn’t be more excited to unleash this incredible history of Camp Crystal Lake, Jason, and all that has gone with them over the last 30 plus years.”
There's just one little hitch. This monster-sized documentary will arrive on a region-free BLU-RAY ONLY! Sorry, DVD-philes. It's time to upgrade if you want the goodies. Plus, being that Blu-ray discs hold way more memory than your standard DVD, you won't have to be switching discs every couple of hours. That being said, pre-sale for the documentary will begin on July 8, 2013, for a August 27th release.
Keep your eyes on the newly launched Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th website for more info.

The contest, entitled "Fill in the Blood," celebrates the launch of True Blood: The Complete Fifth Season on DVD/Blu-ray via HBO Select, and here are all the details:
Beginning yesterday and ending May 17th, the "True Blood" Twitter feed (@TrueBloodHBO) is hosting the "Psalms of Lilith" contest. Each day fans will be asked to fill in the missing words from a Psalm of Lilith (#fillintheblood), and the top ten submissions for each Psalm will win an autographed copy of the release. All of the winners will be announced the day after their tweet. The official micro-site for the contest is FillInTheBlood.com.

"True Blood" Season 5:
Returning for its fifth season, "True Blood" is HBO’s sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama series from Oscar® and Emmy® winner Alan Ball ("Six Feet Under") and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning cast favorites – human/faerie waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire suitors Bill Compton and Eric Northman, soul-searching pal Tara, shape-shifting boss Sam, rakish brother Jason, clairvoyant Lafayette, and teen-vamp Jessica – Season 5 introduces a whole new wave of otherworldly characters. There’s Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God’s vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora, who shares the same maker as Eric; werewolves J.D. and Martha, who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and many more. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery, and humor, "True Blood" Season 5 goes deep into the battle between the Vampire Authority and “vampire fundamentalists” – a political power play whose outcome could decide the fate not only of Sookie and her Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.
Atlantic Rim may look like lawsuit bait after the last year’s legal woes The Asylum had over their Battleship and Hobbit mockbusters. It better not because it also looks pretty damn cool if you’re like me and believe you can never have enough movies about giant robots battling giant monsters.
Now that I think about it, “to fight monsters we created monsters” could almost be The Asylum’s mantra when it comes to competing all these years in a marketplace dominated by big Hollywood blockbusters.
When the floor of the Atlantic Ocean rips open, flooding the East Coast with giant monsters, Academy Award nominee Graham Greene recruits ex-"Baywatch" lifeguard David Chokachi to join Naughty by Nature’s Anthony “Treach” Criss and 100 Ghost Street: The Return of Richard Speck’s Jackie Moore in piloting giant robots built to protect the world from these monstrous menaces. If Atlantic Rim has a sense of humor about its origins, one of the giant robots will be named “Toro”.
Piloting the film is Jared Cohn, director of The Asylum’s first-ever theatrical release Hold Your Breath.
The role of the East Coast of the United States is played by the Gulf Coast’s Pensacola, Florida, the actual location where the movie was shot.
Though the trailer and artwork bills the movie as Atlantic Rim, according to Amazon and all other retailers, the film Asylum is releasing to Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on July 9th - three days before the opening of Pacific Rim - sports the lackluster alternate title Attack from Beneath. I’m hoping that’s going to change back to Atlantic Rim because if you’re going to go full-on mockbuster, then you might as well go all the way with it. Go big or go extinct, right?
Can’t wait to see what mockbuster they come up with for next year’s Godzilla reboot.
The first home video details and artwork for Anchor Bay's The Demented have arrived, and we have the skinny on what you need to know when this newest breed of flesh-eaters start heading your way! Hint: Hit them in the head. That shit always works!
From the Press Release
Horror films often take their cue from daily newspaper headlines, feeding on the all-too-real fears of the everyday world. Like the best science fiction, sometimes horror lies just around the corner or beyond the bend of what we know. On July 30th, Anchor Bay Films unleashes the biological warfare thriller The Demented on Blu-ray™/DVD combo pack and DVD.

The Demented follows six college friends as they meet up for a carefree weekend in a beautiful rural home. A terrorist missile attack in a nearby town infects much of the townspeople with a deadly virus that induces rabies-like symptoms...with devastating consequences. Ravenous and fast, the infected townspeople turn their sights on the vacation home where the friends are gathered...and are now barricaded. How long can they hide? Even with the infected “sleeping” in the streets, can they make their escape? If so, to what?

"Resurrection" is expected to be a limited series, airing just 12 to 13 episodes per season.
The people of Arcadia, Missouri, are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia; and an Immigration agent, Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Harold (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Garland (Frances Fisher), who lost their son, Jacob, more than 30 years ago. While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents.
Those closest to the family try to unravel this impossible mystery, including Sheriff Fred Garland (Matt Craven), whose wife, Barbara, drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob. But this boy who claims to be the deceased Jacob knows secrets about his own death that no one else knows -- secrets that Fred’s daughter, Gail (Devin Kelly), will begin to investigate and discover to be true.

The pilot was directed by Charles McDougall. “Resurrection” is produced by ABC Studios.
Solomon Kane is a flick that's gotten a lot of flack over the last couple of years. Is it perfect? No, but it is pretty damned good. Then again, what the hell do I know? I liked The Devil Inside. In any event, the flick is finally headed to Blu-ray and DVD.
From the Press Release
Anchor Bay Entertainment and RADiUS-TWC announced today the Blu-ray™ and DVD release of SOLOMON KANE. The film was directed by Michael J. Bassett (“Da Vinci’s Demons” and Silent Hill: Revelation 3D) and stars James Purefoy (“The Following”), the late Pete Postlethwaite (In the Name of the Father), Rachel Hurd-Wood (Peter Pan), and Max von Sydow (The Exorcist). The character Solomon Kane was created by pulp-era writer and mind behind Conan the Barbarian, Robert E. Howard. SOLOMON KANE heads to retail on July 16, 2013 for an SRP of $26.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $22.98 for the DVD.
Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient 16th century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents. As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, his mission takes a fateful turn. One by one, Kane's men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil's own Reaper -- dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane at last manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.
SOLOMON KANE Blu-ray™ and DVD special features include a "making of" featurette, interviews and commentary with director Michael J. Bassett, the producers and cast members, a deleted scene, gallery images and a special FX featurette!

Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
You would think that by now everybody would have enough brains in their head to quit screwing around with the space-time continuum, but no. They gotta keep messing around, changing things. The next flick to do so is Glimmer, and you can read on for details.
According to The Wrap, "Shameless" star Jeremy Allen White (pictured) has landed his first lead role in a studio movie, DreamWorks’ found-footage film Glimmer.

Glimmer is a found-footage film about a group of teenagers who take a camping trip to investigate a series of missing persons and wind up discovering a portal that takes them back in time and traps them in the 1970s. When one of them changes the past, the effects start to snowball with tragic consequences.
