There’s Something In The Woods Trailer: Slaughterhouse Rulez!

Despite looking, sounding and acting like a postscript to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s Cornetto Trilogy (Pegg and Frost are even in the cast!), it is not.

But this tale of a nightmare unleashed when a sinkhole caused by fracking leads ‘straight to hell’ does for posh British schools what Pegg and Simon did for zombies, renegade cops and pub crawls.

No American release date as yet.

Dark Horse To Release The Short Films of Dave McKean In Hardcover Book!

Best known for his work with Neil Gaiman and his Harvey Award-winning graphic novel Cages and Eisner Award-nominated graphic novel Black Dog: The Dreams of Paul Nash, Dave McKean also created inventive, surreal short films. McKean’s films have been collected in this Blu-ray release, accompanied by a behind-the-scenes hardcover book.

While I’ve only seen McKean’s excellent feature-length film, Mirrormask, I have to expect that Dave McKean: Short Films will be a darkly delightful collection of weirdness and empathy. The book should go down a treat, too.

Dave McKean: Short Films will be in stores on June 27, 2018.

Jon Hamm Gets Angelic for Amazon’s Good Omens!

In the Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett novel, the Archangel Gabriel has what amounts to a bit part – but when he started adapting the book for TV, Gaiman decided angels should have a better/bigger role in it and Gabriel, God’s primary messenger, got a lot more lines.

Now Jon Hamm has been cast as the Archangel Gabriel, who is everything Aziraphale is not: tall, good-looking, charismatic and impeccably dressed.

Good Omens is an Amazon Prime Video series that is slated to premiere in 2019 and stars Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale and David Tennant as the demon, Crowley.
