Carlton Cuse checks into Bates Motel

THR reports that Carlton Cuse, who along with Damon Lindelof executive produced and acted as showrunners of ABC's Lost, is boarding A&E’s The Bates Motel. A&E is developing the series, being produced by Mark Wolper and Roy Lee, as a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. The 1960 horror classic featured an off-his-rocker motel manager named Norman Bates who murdered occasional boarders while under the watch of his even-more-psychotic mother. Bates Motel aims to tell the story of a young Bates and how his life with his deranged mother and her lover unhinged his mind, eventually turning him into a serial killer. It has been described as a cross between Twin Peaks and Smallville. If the show is picked up to series, Cuse will executive produce and oversee the writing and production what is being envisioned intially as a six-episode “event" that would lead to additional seasons. It also marks the first “genre” TV project for Cuse since his acclaimed run on Lost.

Ten Best Horror Movies You May Have Never Seen

So a friend and I were having a discussion the other day about how some horror movies become almost household names and some, that may be superior, are not as well recognized. Take The Blair Witch Project for example; this movie is, in my humble opinion, one of the biggest turds ever made but everyone knows, and for some reason loves it! But just mention Phantasm to the casual fan and watch the puzzled look that you get from at least half of them!

Anyway, since I’m a firm believer that all good lists come in tens, below is a list (in no particular order) of ten of the movies that my friend and I were discussing that I believe are highly under-appreciated and deserve a look. read more
