To celebrate the launch of the Scream! & Misty Halloween Special, Rebellion have created this exclusive trailer featuring a couple of our favourite Scream! characters. Check this out…

There’s a hazy memory held by many Scream! fans of a TV advert for the original comic publication back in the 1980’s. The internet has been scoured but it seems that the advert has slipped in to the twilight zone, never to be seen again. This vid from Rebellion is a lovely tribute. Well done!

The Scream! & Misty special will be available from newsagents some time this month. Make sure you pick up a copy.

Animated Blade Series

by Ghastly McNasty

Blade animated series logo

A new animated manga style series of Blade about to be unleashed in Japan. Animax, a division of Sony dedicated to anime TV shows, is already hitting it big with Iron Man and Wolverine series and is now looking to add two more with Blade and X-Men, both of which were announced at San Diego Comic-Con last year.

Harold Perrineau voices Eric Brooks, the supernatural Daywalker known as Blade, making his animated series debut with more action, terrifying villains, and bloodthirsty monsters than you’ve ever seen before. Following in the steps of other hit Marvel anime series, Blade offers viewers 12 half-hour weekly episodes destined to leave you wanting more, exclusively on G4.

Blade’s mother was bitten by a vampire while pregnant, imbuing her unborn son with vampire strength and a thirst for blood, but without the vulnerability to sunlight. A master of weaponry with a desire to avenge the death of his mother, Blade finds himself in Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Cambodia in an effort to take down the evil villain, Deacon Frost. With vampire hunter Makoto at his side, they will stop at nothing to destroy Existence, a vampire organization with roots deeply embedded in Asia.

The animation is done by Japanese company Madhouse and is a combination of traditional animation with computer generated imagery to boot. Released this January.

The Fades

by Ghastly McNasty

A new BBC supernatural drama starts this Wednesday interestingly titled ‘The Fades‘. This 6 episode series was produces by BBC Three and BBC America and has some decent talent involved, both in front and behind the scenes.

Some blurb:

The Fades are dead people, spirits that are trapped here in our world. There is no reason why fades are chosen. Death is random and the Fades are those that are left behind. They are angry, truly angry about the randomness and the pain and suffering. They are rotting, they can’t be touched, they’re prisoners on Earth and the series is about the Fades trying to break through back into the world of the living.

Check out the trailer below.

Waling Dead Series 2 Double Episode Opener

by Ghastly McNasty

Walking Dead news again.

It’s been confirmed that series 2 of The Walking Dead will debut with a double-length episode. The 13 episode run will also be broken into two halves, with the first half premiering in October and the second in February. You can view a trailer of the new series here.

With director Frank Darabont no longer at the helm will the quality of the show be of a good enough standard? When the entire writing team from series 1 was fired earlier in the year, alarm bells began to ring. Now, without Darbont’s influence, and with rumours of AMC budget cuts, The Walking Dead TV series has the potential to crash and burn! Darabont was replaced by former deputy and executive producer Glen Mazzara.

The Walking Dead will return to AMC on Sunday, October 16. We’re hoping it can build AND improve on series 1.

Locke & Key Trailer

by Ghastly McNasty

Locke and Key Logo

When we first heard Locke & Key was coming to the small screen there was a huge buzz of excitement in comic geek land. Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s horror story feels almost perfect for an on-screen adaptation. Imagine the dissapointment when, after loads of teasing, industry reports and a full blown pilot episode, Fox decided to drop the project. Don’t worry, they will rot in hell. The full episode was shown at the recent San Diego Comic Con, hopefully it will eventually make its way on to the internet. For now we just have the trailer…

Looks pretty awesome as far as I’m concerned. Maybe it will get picked by another network…we live in hope.

The Walking Dead – Season 2 Trailer

by Ghastly McNasty

The Walking Dead - Season 2 Trailer

The 42nd San Diego Comic Con has just ended after a long weekend of wowing comic fans and geeks from across the globe. Of the many trailers shown at the event, there are a few worthy of a mention but only one that fits this blog’s mandate. It’s The Walking Dead of course. This trailer seems more of a preview from the first episode of the new series but is still fairly drool enducing.

Saturday Morning Watchmen

Saturday Morning WatchmenI had to post this as it’s totally amazing and needs to be seen rather than described. Pure genius! It would have Alan Moore reaching for the razor blades.

Stehphen King to pen Walking Dead episode

by Ghastly McNasty

Stephen King Walking Dead

A very dark and delicious story doing the rounds at the moment readers is that horror legend Stephen King is in negotiations to write an episode of AMC’s zombie TV series The Walking Dead.

While this deal is still in its early stages it seems likely to happen. Executive producer Frank Darabont has already collaborated with King several times, directing The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption and one of my personal favourite horror movies The Mist. Such a soul-wrenching ending, gives me ghastly goosebumps just thinking about it.

The first episode of The Walking Dead aired on ‘normal’ TV in the UK on Sunday with 1.4 million zombie-crazed viewers, an 8.2% share on the box. Not bad considering it was already aired on FX last year and was fighting for viewers with the final of The Masters on BBC2. Why would any creature would want to watch golf instead of zombies? All that green grass and sunshine. Give me weeds and dark foreboding skies any day of the week.

The Governator

by Ghastly McNasty

The GovernatorAn interesting story surfaced on the 1st April regarding a new animated series ‘loosely’ based on the life of screen legend Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was regarded as an amusing April Fools gag but the hype machine just kept on rolling with even Arnie himself later announcing ‘The Governator’ will spawn, comic books, merchandise and eventually even a 3D film.

Points of interest – The Governator operates from a hi-tech bunker called the “Arnold Cave” under his home in Los Angeles and his enemies are a dastardly group of super-villains from an organisation called Gangsters, Imposters, Racketeers, Liars & Irredeemable Ex-cons aka The G.I.R.L.I.E Men!

The project is a collaboration between Schwarzenegger, branded entertainment firm A Squared Entertainment, comic books publisher Archie Comics and POW! Entertainment – the company headed by former Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee.

I gotta admit, although it’s a bit of a cheese fest, the trailer looks pretty damn cool!

Arnold starred in some amazing movies back in the day – Predator, Terminator, Running Man etc. These were quite simply amazing films and Arnie has long been held in high regard by pretty much everyone on the planet. His move to cash in on his fame and muscle in to politics was a load of crap and when he left his position as Governor of California earlier this year he was generally regarded by the residents of California as a twat. This new cartoon seems a fairly shrewd move for Arnie as a lot of stupid people have trouble defining the lines between reality and media slush. Even though it’s only a cartoon I can see many people actually believing this is in some way a semi-biographical representation of Schwarzenegger, who does actually fight crime.

Chew going to the small screen

by Ghastly McNasty


The horror comic series ‘Chew’ has been green-lighted by American network Showtime for a half hour comedy TV series. The comic book, written by John Layman with artwork by Rob Guillory, has a loyal fan base. The first issue was released in 2009 by Image Comics (Yes, The Walking Dead) and is currently on the 17th issue, no surprise after winning the much coveted Eisner Award for best new series.

Chews tell the story of federal agent Tony Chu who is a ‘cibopath’ able to get psychic impression from the things he eats. This ranges from animals to people so expect some very dark humour and a whole lot of blood. Exactly the sort of thing we appreciate on The Theatre of Terror.
