Dylan Dog The Tv SHow

Posted in Comedy, Comic Books, entertainment, ghosts, horror, tv with tags , , , , on January 30, 2017 by chrisdsav

Back in 2001 Brandon Routh before he was he Atom and after he was Superman played Dylan Dog and I actually kind of liked the movie but…..lots of people did not…however look whats coming soon.

First, some info on the comics – Dylan Dog is a massively popular Italian horror comic, created by Tiziano Sclavi in 1986 (Sclavi would later write the script for an unofficial Dylan Dog tie-in – Dellamorte Dellamore, aka Cemetery Man).

Dylan Dog is a private investigator specializing in nightmares. He lives  with his eccentric assistant, Groucho, and solves cases dealing with the paranormal.

Seeing as the copyright to Dylan Dog still lies in Hollywood (adaptation Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is a film similar in name only to the popular comic and hated by fans), some of the characters had to be slightly altered; yet, the atmosphere and feel are kept as close as possible to the source material.

Kevin Kopacka produced, directed, scored, and edited the pilot episode, titled “Dream of the Living Dead” – which he co-wrote with fellow director Alex Bakshaev. Besides the titular character Dylan (renamed as “Dylan Dawn”), the pilot will feature alterations of other Dylan Dog characters such as Groucho, Inspektor Bloch, Madame Trelkovski, Jenkins, Morgana, and Xarabas.

After a fight with her husband, Corrado, Morgana’s world seems somehow different – cold, dark, and rotten. Trapped between reality and nightmare, she has no choice but to seek out “Nightmare Investigator” Dylan Dawn. But can Dylan save her from her fate, or is she forever caught in a maze of bad dreams?

“Dylan” stars Ford Everett as Dylan, Denise Ankel as Morgana, and Rainer Werner Fassbinder veteran Harry Baer as Inspektor Mahlow. The pilot is currently in post-production, but the rough edit has already been finished. It will have a run time of 40 minutes and will be released free for all online around April. Based on the reaction to the pilot, a 6-episode first season might get made (though at the moment it is unknown if for TV or based online).

Director’s Statement:
The idea is to have a 6-episode first season. As with the comics, each episode will be different in style and atmosphere to the one before, but there will be an overarching story with Xarabas planned to appear in the season finale.

Expect it to be a mixture of the Dylan comics L’alba dei morti viventi and Morgana with nods to Italian classic horror movies such as Dellamorte Dellamore, Zombi, Demoni, and Burial Ground. It will be very atmospheric, artistic, and (hopefully) even scary but still with comedic elements. A full trailer will be released before the launch of the episode.

As a closing statement, I will say that this show is made for the fans and is in no way meant to be disrespectful to its source material. I hope you (especially the Italian fans!) will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!

The Old Spaghetti Factory

Posted in Canada, ghosts, horror, locations, news with tags , , , on October 12, 2016 by chrisdsav

For many Canadians, especially in British Columbia, it’s a fairly well known fact that the Old Spaghetti Factory in Vancouver is haunted. So as the Canadian co-host I feel that it is my job to tell our viewers about all the weird events that have taken place there over the years.

Now, there are supposedly four ghosts that haunt the Old Spaghetti Factory. The first is an unknown little girl. She is best known for sitting by the front window holding a balloon. One time a friend of the general manager was in the restaurant and he had a conversation with her that lasted for several minutes. The little girl told him that she was looking for her mother. Naturally he went to tell the manager, but by the time they returned the girl was gone.

The second(and best known) ghost is the spirit of a tram conductor. The conductor is known to frequent the old trolley car that is parked inside the restaurant. The trolley was built in New Westminister in 1904. It was once part of the B.C Electric Railway companys fleet of electric trams and served as public transit in and around Vancouver for years. The trolley was decommissioned in 1957 and installed in the building in 1969 during the set up of the restaurant. Now it sits in the restaurant filled with dining tables and chairs for guests to eat in.

It’s up for debate whether the conductors spirit came with the trolley or not. There are some who say he died in a collision on an underground railroad below the restaurant. However, that is highly unlikely as Vancouvers trolley cars all ran street level and the building itself has no historical connection with the B.C Electric Railway Company. That being said, most assume the ghost came with the tram car.

Regardless of his orgin, many staff member have seen the conductor. He will always appear sitting at the same dining table in the tram car late at night after closing. Staff members have also noticed place settings mysteriously move inside the tram car as well as inexplicable cold spots.

The third ghost is a young boy. In 2012 he scared the crap out of some poor female server. She was in the back section closing up for the night and while setting tables she saw a boy run past her to the very back. She obviously thought it was strange so she followed him. The little boy had ran behind a table along the back wall, turned, and looked up at her. Nobody knows exactly what she saw when he looked up at her, but it was obviously terrifying. The poor girl ran to the front to tell the manager and quit on the spot.

After that incident a psychic came in and was able to identify the boy as “Edward”. She also pointed out that there was apparently a vortex located at the back of the resturaunt. A vortex is essentially a portal to other dimensons that allows spirits to come to our world. Some people believe they are linked to Earth’s electromagnetic fields and that influences where they’re located as well as when they open or close. The psychic also claimed that several small artifacts decorating the restaurant have spirits attached to them.

Edward is also thought to be responsible for bending cutlery on tables in the back of the restaurant. One night during close a staff member walked through the back area to make sure that the place settings had been properly laid out. That staff member, as well as a few others, saw that each cutlery item on one of the tables was bent upwards. By the time they were able to get a manager to check it out, it was all back to normal. He also sometimes puts a chair on top of a table for staff to find in the morning.

The fourth and final ghost is my personal favourite. He is a small, mischievous spirit with red hair known as the “Little red man”. He is known to call out staff members names and stroll through the kitchen.

His favourite prank is to surprise ladies in the womens washroom. One time two ladies were in the washroom and theysaw a dwarvish man leave one of the stalls dressed in a red shirt and long johns. After laughing at their reactions, he left the washroom. After asking around, the ladies discovered that nobody else had seen him leave. One of the women had apparently taken his picture. However, when she had the film developed, he was a blur. Nobody knows who this man is or why he haunts the Old Spaghetti Factory, but one thing is obvious. This ghost definitely has a good sense of humor.

So those are the four ghosts of the Old Spaghetti Factory in Vancouver, British Columbia. If you’re feeling brave and would like to visit, check out their website for the location and phone number. http://www.oldspaghettifactory.ca

 

The Fort Garry Hotel

Posted in ghosts, Halloween, History, horror, Places with tags , on October 3, 2016 by chrisdsav

hotel_fort_garry_lge.jpg

The Fort Garry Hotel is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba and was built in 1913. It was originally supposed to be called The Selkirk, however it was decided that it should be named after Upper Fort Garry, which once stood at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.

Fort Garry was popular from the start, hosting many famous guests including Queen Elizabeth, King George VI, Laurence Oliver, Louis Armstrong, and Liberaci. What makes the hotel so popular today is all the reports of strange activity, especially in room 202, from guests and staff alike. The claims range from staff seeing blood dripping down the walls of room 202 to guests waking up in the middle of the night to the apparition of a woman in a cloak hovering at the foot of their bed! Other reports include housekeepers being locked in room 202 and windows in the room apparently shattering out of nowhere! Even former Ontario Liberal MP Brenda Chamerlain noticed something strange going on in room 202! During her stay in the room back in 2004 she claimed she was awoken by the sensation of somebody getting into bed with her… twice!

So you’re probably wondering what the deal with room 202 is, right? Well apparently many years ago there was a young woman was staying in the room. During her stay she found out that her husband had died in a car crash. She was so heartbroken she hung herself in the closest of room 202.

Another story from room 202 is about a young boy who was on a trip with his family organized by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He had apparently requested to stay in room 202 after hearing all the stories about the room. During his stay he decided to take some pictures with his film camera. A few months later when he got the photos back, all the pictures had turned out… except for the ones in and around room 202. The little boy was apparently pretty stoked, saying that the ghosts were “camera shy”.

The woman from room 202 reportedly haunts the hotel lounge as well. She has been witness by guests and staff, usually crying in the corner.

Staff have also reported seeing the ghost of a young woman wearing a robe walking down the hallway. Others have reported seeing a woman in a ball gown. Sometimes ghosts are even witnessed in rooms other than room 202, usually at the foot of the bed.

Now, this last story about the hotel takes place in 1989. An employee was in the kitchen tidying up late at night. He was on his way up the stairs at around 4am when he started hearing strange noises coming from the locked dining room. He immediately rushed to get the key. Upon opening the door he noticed the figure of a man sitting at a table. He ran on to get another staff member to show them what he had witnessed, but by the time he got back, the mysterious man was gone.

So what do you think? Haunted hotel or a clever hoax to attract guests? The Fort Garry Hotel is now a National Historic Landmark, however it is still open to this day. If you’re brave enough to check it out for yourself, you can go to this link to book a room:
