    “THE OTHER DEAD” (Comic Review)

    Animals have often been the harbingers of new disease. The Bubonic plague was credited to arriving on the back of rats, while the Bird Flu epidemic pretty much explains itself. With THE OTHER DEAD we are introduced to a brand of animal illness previously only seen in certain type of manipulative parasite: zombies. Instead of the shambling dead hoofing it with the humans, this particular series aims to explore the possibility of a four-legged terror threatening to destroy the known world.  Thick with blood and guts as it is with political and social commentary, THE OTHER DEAD heads in a new direction as it ties together human fear and frailty and its effect on the environment through the collective revolt of the world’s lesser evolved creatures.

    “POLTERGEIST” gets Parapsychologist in Jane Adams

    It seems Gil Kenan’s upcoming redo of the Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg great will find room for both a “Haunted House Cleaner” and a parapsychologist. The former, already announced with Jared Harris starring sounds something of a reality TV showboat. Will the latter, played by HUNG star Jane Adams (seen above in Joe Swanberg’s ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY), be an earnest counterpart?

    “LOVE ETERNAL” (Fantastic Fest Movie Review)

    In the opening scenes of LOVE ETERNAL, Ian Harding (a tender, troubled Robert de Hoog) spends his formative years among the dead. As a child, he plays with his father, running out of range of their walkie-talkies. When he returns, the man lays dead, seated outdoors. Later, midst puberty, Ian finds a popular girl from school hung by her own hand out in the forest. He visits the body endlessly, converses with it– forms a bond. Between these two significant moments in Ian’s life is a main titles sequence that elegantly strides through the countryside. Trees, caves, cliffsides and soil are as much of his foundation as the corpses he finds and socializes with. His conclusion and ours is obvious. Death is natural.

    “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN’s” Main Titles are the Series’ Best Yet

    While I’m sure it speaks to personal taste, it seems the always enticing opening credits of AMERICAN HORROR STORY have reached an apex. A kaleidoscopic journey through witchy symbols, voodoo spells, demonic art, intense costume design, stag heads and pagan rites , the dark groove is even more subdued and the black magick style makes one wish the entire series would be this woodsy and off-putting. Previous comments from creator Ryan Murphy have hinted towards a lighter tone after the often punishing ASYLUM, but if any of the present aesthetic makes its way in, this is 100% exciting.
