Ravenous Double Feature!

This week, after the news, we’ll cover the drive-in classic, “Ravenous (1999)” followed by our discussion of the short film, “tEXT”, and our modern-horror feature film, “Ravenous (2017)” Get your fudgesicles and orange-sherbert push ups, turn up the volume, and relax. Here we go...

News Features:

  1. Deadline.com reports that in part of the Syfy networks effort to expand into horror, a Chucky series is coming to television. They have the rights. They are forming a plan. The project comes from the Chucky movie franchise creator/writer Don Mancini and producer David Kirschner as well as TV writer-producer Nick Antosca (Hulu’s The Act). We will wait impatiently for our one of our favorite evil dolls to live again on the small screen. https://deadline.com/2019/01/chucky-tv-series-adaptation-syfy-don-mancini-david-kirschner-nick-antosca-1202544301/

  2. A new tabletop role playing game Thousand Year Old Vampire by Tim Hutchings is due to be released June 1 of this year. Currently in a Kickstarter, the page has detailed information, graphics, videos, and a free downloadable PDF Playtest that is lengthy and involved. It looks like a very cool game that will bring another way to play first person with the lore. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/timh/thousand-year-old-vampire-a-roleplaying-game

  3. Sarah Michelle Gellar will be tapping into her roots as a commercial and horror-movie actress Sunday February 3rd with a premier of an Olay skin care commercial. The star of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and the Grudge films is in Olay’s Killer Skin campaign. Teasers have shown Sarah at home under threat from a masked intruder. Will she have to fight, run, or just help them out with skincare? The teasers look pretty creepy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=18&v=UOMuwbTEzxI

  4. The Verge has confirmed that a new adaptation of The Stand is coming as a ten-part series on CBS All Access. A solid project with Stephen King himself excited and giving his full support, the undated project will be directed by Josh Boone with primary writing by Boone and Ben Cavell. It was previously done as an 8-hour miniseries on ABC in 1994, and Warner Brothers made a launch attempt some time ago that was to be directed by Boone but never went anywhere. This resurrection sounds like a sure thing. https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/30/18204443/stephen-king-the-stand-cbs-all-access-10-episode-miniseries

  5. And speaking of more Stephen King related news, the sequel to The Shining is set to be released from Warner Brothers November 8, 2019. Doctor Sleep will star Ewan McGregor as the adult Danny. Directed by Mike Flanagan who most recently brought us Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, the story is set years after the events at the Overlook when a damaged Danny with gifts dulled by age and alcohol becomes involved with a young girl coming to grips with a Shining of her own. The novel, released in 2013 is available if you want to check out the story ahead of time. Link: https://amzn.to/2Wxylck Or just wait to check it out in theaters. Or read it after you see the movie to see how it compares. https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2019/01/31/doctor-sleep-the-shining-sequel-release-date-warner-bros/

  6. Bonus cool weirdness - Self-proclaimed Tinker Gnome Jared Gray has made the best out of the pain-in-the-backside condition of sleep apnea by modifying his CPAP machine to look like he’s been attacked by a facehugger from Alien. His blog gives a detailed account of how he did it, with plenty of photos. While it’s not quite practical or ready for mass production, it’s very awesome and looks great.
