    Savini and Me: Part Six, Not an A**hole

    For a long time, there have been rumors floating around that Tom Savini is an a**hole. When I was first in talks with Tom to do a book, I’d mention that more than a few times I had heard fans say things like, “I heard he is a jerk,” or “I was told he is an a**hole.” “I don’t want to meet him, he’s a d*ck.” The funny thing is, pretty much all the people who said such things had never met him. It was all what they “heard” from other fans or read on boards. The rumor was rampant. I hadn’t talked to him much at this point, but from all of our communication, he seemed completely nice and civil. Then again, I was “working” with him; maybe he was just being nice? If I was a fan approaching him, would things be different?

    “THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS” #1 (Comic Review)

    by: Svetlana Fedotov on: 2013-02-19 21:09:01

    The ghost hunting shenanigans of the four paranormal
    detectives known as GHOSTBUSTERS perfectly melded humor and horror into an
    iconic film still popular today as it was almost 30 years ago. It’s little
    wonder, then that the Ghostbusters has had such a huge marketing appeal,
    ranging anywhere from toys to cartoons, and leaving a very permanent mark on
    the comic market. The franchise has spent years floating from company to company
    (even making a pit stop at Tokyopop for a manga do-over), but it has recently
    planted its feet with industry bad boy IDW. THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS picks up right
    where the IDW GHOSTBUSTERS left off, this time sending our boys in gray
    jumpsuits into a strange world possessed by the unknown.

    NBC teases “HANNIBAL,” the most notorious killer of them all

    by: Samuel Zimmerman on: 2013-02-19 14:02:59

    NBC’s released a look at the delicate working relationship between agent Will Graham and Dr. Hannibal Lecter. It sure doesn’t look like the buddy cop antics we (I) were hoping. 

    From Bryan Fuller (PUSHING DAISIES, HEROES), HANNIBAL seeks to let us in on the procedural days of Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) as he tracks down serial killers with the help of one. As the official synopsis would suggest (twice!) however, Will has little idea what he’s working with: When the mind of the twisted killer he’s pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch. If Will only knew…

    I imagine many will tune in so as to see how the oddly beloved cannibal will translate here. With little affection for any of his incarnations, I imagine Mads Mikkelsen possesses some of the otherworldly, menacing sophistication necessary and will handle it just fine. But with the ever stretching boundaries of television and the fact that the undead regularly eat humans on AMC, will the doctor be dining on liver and the like regularly? April 4th, we find out.

    The 2011 found footage survivor flick GRAVE ENCOUNTERS was certainly a worthy entry in the shaky cam subgenre. Despite having some less than stellar CGI, the film felt real and put the characters in a fairly plausible situation, with suspenseful pacing, fun, campy performances and a solid directing debut from Collin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz, collectively known as The Vicious Brothers. That said, the follow-up picture, GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2  (currently enjoying a limited theatrical run in Canada), is more than a bit of a disappointment.
