  • DailyDead
In addition to taking part in the Plan 9 From Outer Space live stage reading at Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival, Jeffrey Combs is also bringing a literary legend to life on stage with his one-man show, Nevermore: An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe. Ahead of his latest live performance as Poe at Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival tonight at the Tarrytown Music Hall, Daily Dead caught up with Combs (who can also be seen in the upcoming horror anthology film Holiday Hell) to discuss playing Poe for more than a decade, the genius of Poe's written works, the tragic real-life story of the Master of the Macabre, and he also discussed reteaming with Greg Nicotero for Shudder's new Creepshow series

You'll be doing your one-man show in Tarrytown, near where Washington Irving was inspired for "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," which seems perfect. Where did your fascination with Edgar Allan Poe begin?

Interview: Dana Gould Discusses Live Stage Reading of Plan 9 From Outer Space, Stan Against Evil, and Adapting Rod Serling’s Planet Of The Apes Screenplay

  • DailyDead
A stand-up comedian who wrote for Saturday Night Live and The Simpsons, Dana Gould embraces horror as well as humor through his longtime love of creature features, Famous Monsters of Filmland, and things that go bump in the night. It's fitting, then, that Gould, along with a cast of fellow comedians, is bringing both laughs and scares to the stage in New York this weekend for a live reading of Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space at the first annual Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival.

Ahead of the live reading on Friday, October 11th at 9:00pm at the Tarrytown Music Hall, Daily Dead had the pleasure of talking with Gould about bringing Plan 9 From Outer Space to life on stage with his friends, and he also discussed the plans he had for the fourth season of Stan Against Evil, getting to play a role on the new Creepshow series,

Len Wiseman Tapped to Direct Female-Led John Wick Spin-Off Entitled Ballerina

Director, writer, and producer Len Wiseman has been hired to direct a female-led action flick that will be a spin-off of the John Wick films, entitled Ballerina. According to Deadline, the story will follow a “young female assassin who seeks revenge against the people who killed her family.”

While the character Ballerina was featured in John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, and was played by Unity Phelan, there is no word currently as to who will play the character in the upcoming movie, or whether Keanu Reeves’s Wick will be involved. We will keep you posted as to casting and timeline updates. I think it will be pretty awesome to have another story set inside the world of the badass John Wick. Are you interested in this storyline?

Ballerina: John Wick Spinoff Taps Len Wiseman To Direct

Kirsten Howard Oct 9, 2019

The female-focused spinoff to the John Wick franchise is moving forward at Lionsgate.

Len Wiseman is coming back to movies after a seven year break from the big screen. His last film was 2012's Total Recall remake with Colin Farrell, and since then he's directed episodes of Swamp Thing, Sleepy Hollow and The Gifted, among others. Now, it's been announced that he will helm Lionsgate's John Wick spinoff film, Ballerina.

Per Deadline Ballerina "focuses on a young female assassin who seeks revenge against the people who killed her family" and so presumably we'll be delving into the life of one of Angelica Houston's brutalized protégés from John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum. This will be a female character-driven project written by Shay Hatten, who co-wrote Parabellum and Zack Snyder's Netflix movie, Army Of The Dead.

There is currently no official lead actress attached to the film.

The Best Production Design Oscar Race

By Cláudio Alves

Will a Tarantino movie finally be nominated for Best Production Design?

Let's take a look at the Best Production Design Oscar race. While period pieces and fantasy extravaganzas dominate the costuming category, production designers are more open to other styles, too, like sci-fi, contemporary excellence, and even superhero movies. That said, at least in regards to the films that have already opened, the major contenders are roughly the same as with the Best Costume Design Oscar race.

Those We've Already Seen

Rick Heinrichs designed Dumbo's spectacular sets.

Rick Heinrichs won an Oscar for a previous collaboration with Tim Burton (Sleepy Hollow) and his designs for Dumbo are quite good, like nightmare visions of an Art Deco Disneyland. I’m less enchanted with Gemma Jackson’s pseudo-Arabian designs, but it would be foolish to count Aladdin out of the race...

Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow: Top 10 Costumes, Ranked

The costumes in Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow are as legendary as the story the movie is based on. Originally a part of Grimm's Fairytales before it was repackaged as a ghost story by Washington Irving in 1820, Sleepy Hollow has remained a standard of the Halloween season since it premiered in 1999. Its instantly recognizable costumes, designed by long-time Burton collaborator and costuming genius Colleen Atwood, played as much a part in bringing the Legend of Sleepy Hollow to life as the stars who wore them.

When Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is called from New York City to the little town of Sleepy Hollow to investigate multiple murders, he investigates in his impeccably practical long coat. It's not long before the enchanting Katrina Van Tassel catches his eye, and who can blame him, when she wears her luxurious blue velvet riding cloak?

Has the Almighty ghosted Miles? That appears to be the case in God Friended Me‘s Season 2 premiere, as the podcaster hasn’t gotten a friend suggestion since Joy (Awkward‘s Jessica Lu) showed up and then bailed after learning all about the God account.

Rakesh suggests to Miles that maybe it’s time to move on from the God account, but the universe has other plans. After helping a soldier (Sleepy Hollow‘s Zach Appelman) with directions,

No Offense Arrowverse, but Bones and Sleepy Hollow Already Had the Best TV Crossover of All Time

Forget "Scoobynatural." Forget "Crisis on Infinite Earths." Forget that time The X-Files crossed over with Cops. TV crossovers peaked in 2015 when Fox decided that Bones and Sleepy Hollow existed in a shared universe.

‘Jacob’s Ladder’ Film Review: Michael Ealy’s Powerful Performance Gets Lost in a Shabby Remake

‘Jacob’s Ladder’ Film Review: Michael Ealy’s Powerful Performance Gets Lost in a Shabby Remake
Watching Adrian Lyne’s classic “Jacob’s Ladder” raises a lot of complex psychological and spiritual questions. The film stars Tim Robbins as a Vietnam veteran who suffers from horrifying visions and persecution nightmares, but Lyne’s film dares to ask if nightmares are, perhaps, beautiful experiences viewed from the wrong angle. What is existential truth? What is sanity? What is the difference, if any, between heaven and hell?

David M. Rosenthal’s remake of “Jacob’s Ladder” doesn’t have the same ambition as Lyne’s 1990 film, but it does re-use much of the same imagery to tell a vaguely similar story. Michael Ealy stars as Jacob Singer, a veteran who lost his brother in Afghanistan, and now works at a V.A. hospital in Atlanta. When he’s not helping other traumatized veterans get pharmaceutical help for their conditions, he’s having flashbacks of his own.

Blu-ray Review: Satan’S Slave (1976)

Beware and tread lightly, as Satan has once again erupted from the bowels of Hell to let loose another firestorm of insidious worship, gratuitous nudity and gore! Well, we’re in the ‘70s and he never really left anyway; the box office was very kind to the Horned One in that decade, and Vinegar Syndrome has polished up another one for a sparkling Blu-ray release, Satan’s Slave (1976).

This film was Norman J. Warren’s first horror outing after helming a couple of nudie flicks in the late ‘60s; a sign of the times, a lot of directors entered through the green door before seeking the slightly more reputable terror genre. Of the Warren’s I’ve seen (which is admittedly few), Satan’s Slave is the most accomplished and controlled, and a welcome addition to the coven of Satanic horror.

Trailer: Jason Mewes Makes His Directorial Debut With ‘Madness In The Method’

PR

Here’s one of our most anticipated movies of the summer; Jason Mewes‘ directorial debut Madness In The Method, a movie we’ve been following the progress of for a little while now. Mewes also leads the cast of the upcoming comedy, a film which apparently delivers murder, madness and meta-moviemaking. Cannot wait.

Here’s the official synopsis:

The only way to survive in Hollywood is to toughen up, or embrace insanity! At least that’s the advice Kevin Smith passes on to his best friend Jason Mewes, problem is, Smith was joking about the latter…

No longer content being known only as Jay from Jay and Silent Bob, Jason takes matters into his own hands and hatches a plan to change people’s perception of him in the movie business. Did the plan involve a killing spree, a wide scale police investigation and international press scrutiny? Probably not,

There's Obviously a Funeral in Four Weddings and a Funeral - Here's Whose It Is

Warning: obviously there are spoilers ahead for Hulu's Four Weddings and a Funeral!

It's all there in the title: someone's going to die when a show is called Four Weddings and a Funeral. Hulu's adaptation of the classic 1994 British rom-com spreads out its storylines over the course of 10 episodes, rather than a single two-hour movie, but the premise and format of the title remain the same. So who's the unlucky character in this iteration?

Four episodes in, we find out. The "funeral" in the title is for Quentin (Tom Mison), the perpetually drunk husband of posh ice queen Gemma (Zoe Boyle). Although none of the characters are exact replicas of those in the original film - in fact, it's surprisingly difficult to draw any sort of real character parallels between the original cast and this crew of characters - Quentin's death is definitely a shout-out to the storyline of the original.
