Darren Lynn Bousman, the director most famous for Saw II, III, and IV, is ready to return to cinemas (well, at least one or two) with his latest film St. Agatha. The film (clearly an attempt to capitalize on this past fall’s The Nun), begins with a young girl seeking refuge in a spooky convent. Our protagonist, Mary (get it?), soon realizes that the seemingly innocent, evil nuns are really “not innocent”, evil nuns and has to run for her life.
The film stars True Blood’s Carolyn Hennesy, Sabrina Kern (Pretty Hurt), Courtney Halverson (Unfriended), Trin Miller (Captain Fantastic) and Seth Michaels (Eden). St. Agatha was surprisingly written by four individuals including Andy Demetrio, Shaun Fletcher, Sara Sometti Michaels, and Clint Sears. Uncork’d Entertainment will handle the film’s North American distribution, although it may hard to locate in your local area. The film is set to debut in theaters, On Demand, and Digital HD all on the same day, which happens to be February 8. read more

The actor, known for his roles on Beverly Hills 90210 and Syfy’s Sharknado series, will step into the blue and yellow pirate boots of one of DC’s prominent supernatural characters. The character first debuted in 1984 (ala a special preview insert in Firestorm #24) and was created by Dan Mishkin, Gary Cohn, and Paris Cullins. His solo series ran for nearly three years and he would later appear as a member of the Justice League and Shadowpact. The stunt man turned supernatural hero was also rumored to be a part of the long gestating and maligned Justice League Dark film. At this time it appears that JLD is DOA, but having two competing versions of the same character on the small screen and the silver screen has never stopped DC before, so don’t be surprised if fans get two versions to further confuse them. read more
