Wes Craven passed away yesterday, at the age of 76, following a battle with brain cancer. May he rest in peace. Even if I haven’t seen nearly enough of his films, I did enjoy Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994), (which, coincidentally, Syfy aired once more this last Saturday) along with The Serpent And The Rainbow (1988). Deadly Friend was weird, but worth watching once I tracked it down. I loved the opening (Drew Barrymore’s scene) of Scream.

In honor of him, I’ll finally get around to watching one of these: The Hills Have Eyes (1977), Deadly Blessing (1981), or Red Eye (2005).

I’m leaning towards rejecting this nomination due to the fact it wouldn’t be of any practical use to people these days, and is barely an overview.

First look at the home video artwork for the Fright Night remake.

Remembering Jim Henson.

Boom! Studios honors the late Minck Oosterveer.

Obscurus Lupa discusses Big Wolf On Campus. I never knew about it when it aired. Given the time frame of it beginning in 1999, I was graduating high school, entering college, and more interested in Buffy.

Official Merlin season 4 trailer #2.

Prequel for the season finale of Doctor Who.

From Tor: These 5 Writers Should Take A Crack At Doctor Who. I would replace Dan Brown with Terry Pratchett. Just…no to Tina Fey. Replace her with Jane Espsenson.

I watched my first Wes Craven and Stephen King movies yesterday. Salem’s Lot (the original) and The People Under The Stairs. Not scary at all. When it comes to the former, never in my life have I wanted to see an entire town slaughtered by the vampires so badly. With the latter, that one was strange, but I liked it.
