Circumstances beyond my control kept me away from the computer Sunday and Monday and wowzers! Here are three things that stood out for me: ABC set a premiere date for its Marvel series, Inhumans; Spike acquired season one of The Shannara Chronicles (which will air after The Mist); Hulu announced the addition of Sissy Spacek and Jane Levy to the cast of Castle Rock.
A family that has suffered a brutal crime is at the heart of Spike’s new series based on Stephen King’s The Mist – as they deal with the aftermath, a strange mist rolls in, cutting them and the town off from anyone and anywhere else.
The first trailer is atmospheric and more than a little graphic (think blood not sex).
Spike (soon to become The Paramount Network) has released the first trailer for its new drama, The Mist.
Based on the story by Stephen King, The Mist centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world and, in some cases, each other.
Spike has just released the first trailer for its three-day event, TUT – the story of Pharaoh Tutankhaten, the boy king of Egypt. It’s pretty spectacular – and not a little violent. Check it out after the jump.
One of the best episodes of television’s Angel was an episode called Smile time – in which Angel became a muppet-like puppet while investigating a children’s show that appeared to be putting children into comas, while sporting Joker-like rictus-grins. Like the best eps of the series, Smile Time combined off-the-wall horror with equally off-the-wall humor.
IDW adapted the episode into a three-issue mini-series and followed it up with a puppet/werewolf date and a mini-series that followed Spike and green demon Lorne to Japan, where a Japanese version of the deadly kiddie show was doing the same thing to Japanese kids.
