No-Budget Nightmares #82 – Necroville

On their premiere episode for Dork Shelf, Moe and Doug waste away in 2007's Necroville! It’s Ghostbusters meets Shaun of the Dead – except with more giant chainsaws, hipster vampire masters, and falling pianos.

True Blood Episode 4.3 Recap

The thing I really love about True Blood is that it's not only entertaining, it's also educational. In this week's episode 'If You Love Me,Then Why Am I Dyin' we learned that entrapment doesn't count as a defense in Vampire law, Mexico makes the best viagra and virtually any relationship problem can be solved with hypnosis. All valuable lessons that can be applied to our everyday lives.

True Blood Episode 4.1 Recap

True Blood is the kind of show that when mentioned, can either elicit squeals or groans. Despite my love of it, it's the kind of show I often find myself making excuses for. However, after being blown away by last night's season four premiere I've decided to never again be ashamed of my love of True Blood. Your favourite gap-toothed, fang-banging waitress is back and already it's shaping up to be a bad-ass season, fairies and all.

EFM 2011: Vampire Review

Simon is not an ordinary young man. His seemingly innocuous job, as a high-school biology teacher, is an odd a cover for his strange existence as a serial killer. The women he murders are intent on suicide; he just gives them the option of dying quickly and painlessly - by exsanguinating them, and then drinking their blood. While this might sound like the outline of a horror film, director Iwai Shunji’s remarkable film Vampire is in truth a quiet, dark, and intense drama, a strange take on the vampire myth, and an oddly compelling love story.

Interview
The Cast of Being Human

We caught up with the cast of SPACE and SyFy's new supernatural dramedy Being Human this afternoon in Toronto. The series is adapted from a BBC3 show of the same name about a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost who share a flat. We joined Sam Huntington, Meaghan Rath and Sam Witwer to talk about the show, their schools of vampirism, lycanthropy and poltergeisting, shooting the show in Montreal, and what they have on their dork shelves.

Being Human Preview

So a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost walk into a bar... No, that's not the beginning of a lame dad joke, that's the premise of SPACE's supernatural dramedy Being Human. Okay, more like a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost move into a house together and hilarity/shenanigans/brutal killings ensue.

TIFF 2010
Stake Land Review

A recent trend in horror and science fiction films is examining the world not in the midst of disaster, but once it has begun to adjust to the aftermath of a disaster. This can lead to some very interesting examinations of contemporary issues. Winner of the Cadillac People’s Choice Midnight Madness Award, Jim Mickle’s Stake Land is set in a future that includes vampires. But these are not sparkly vampires, nor ones that have souls. These are vampires are little more than animals, and like George A. Romero’s zombie film series, society must adapt to the new world order.
