THE END OF SLEEPY HOLLOW  

Posted in horror, Reviews, tv with tags , , , on May 11, 2017 by chrisdsav

A surprise hit in 2013 when it first debuted on Fox and then by 2017 so far removed  from its original source material to the point that they were not even in the town of Sleepy Hollow anymore. It started with Ichabod Crane in 1774 frozen in time Awakens in 2013 in modern day Sleepy Hollow, his enemy the famous Headless Horse Man. He teams up with Lt Abbie Mills an African American cop and the two are destiny  is to stop the apocalypse. This is not a buddy cop movie where the two have to fall in love the opposite they must work together  for the greater good. It started with such promised and great supernatural   thrills but spiraled out of control into convulsed plot lines and bad character development  choices. Cranes wife was resurrected  only to have her turn bad, Crane found out his abandoned son now 300 years old is the horse man War. There is a demon named Moloch messing with events and the reason behind all the weirdness in the show.

Tom Mison was always excellent in the show as a man out of time Orlando Jones who played Abbie captain called Crane Captain America for that reason. Nicole Behar in plays Abbie and her and Tom had such amazing chemistry together I had not seen two actors work so well together since Mulder and Scully, ( I’m talking about two people the of the opposite sex). The and ways amazing Clancy Brown was in the series premiere but was killed off by beheading. Lyndie  Greenwood played Abbie sister and was a cool hard edged character the opposite  of Abbie who was the do the right thing cop. Katia Winter as Katrina Crane was ok and a good voice of the Supernatural trapped in limbo till she wasn’t and she went from Good witch to annoying bad witch. Just eye candy in In a corset, and that’s a shame considering the show had such great female characters. John Noble was Crane son Henry and I hoped they build a character redeeming arc for him but they kill him off and it drives Kat crazy Scarlet Witch style. The super talented and Sexy Nikki Reed played Betsy Ross as an old flame of Crane and a spy in the War in flash backs.

In season three they fight an Egyptian  god,……cuz you know New York and Egypt are so connected …and I have no idea what season 4 was about I lost it after half way thru season 3 but I know they killed Abbie. That was when fans lost the main female character on half of the shows two character act GONE. The only highlight of season 4 was my buddy Ace Marrero was in it, other wise I could not stay tuned in.

One thing this show did very well was history lessons with new twists with George Washington Benjamin Franklin and more giving them new twists on their connection to the main plot of the show.

This show had such  promise but when you have the writers of the Transformers and new Star Trek movies as its creators then you have a problem from the beginning. This show could have been Fox Answer to the long running Supernatural   TV show now ending it’s 12 th season in two weeks. The headless Horseman could be their recurring Villian in all his bad ass ness but he needed being a ro,antic interest for Cranes wife.

Stop trying to stick romance into every fucking show on tv, people do not fucking care about romance in television  as much as the producers think they do. Especially when the show is about a Headless Horseman.

It’s a shame they went the direction they did and made the show impossible   to follow after season 2 as even that had its problems.

Below are pictures from the Target Exclusive bluray set of season 1.

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!
