First Image from Netflix’s ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Revealed

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the writer and Executive Producer of Netflix’s adaptation of Archie Comics’ The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, took to twitter today to share the first image from the upcoming series featuring Sabrina and her boyfriend Harvey.

The image features Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) and Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch) “strolling down the avenue” into teenage romance and possible trouble, albeit of a more demonic nature.  The Netflix series is based on the 2014 comic book mini series (also written by Aguirre-Sacasa) and if the source material is any indication, this series will more closely resemble classic horror films, rather than the light-hearted Melissa Joan Hart sit-com which aired from 1996 to 2003. read more

‘My Friend Dahmer’ Director Marc Meyers: The Horror News Network Interview

Serial killers have been a staple of horror films ever since Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.  Unfortunately, most films use the serial killer as a generic madman and we rarely get character driven stories that explore the genesis of someone with an abnormal psychological make-up.  Recently, there have been more attempts to tell more realistic, and yet no less harrowing, tales of people afflicted with madness such as David Fincher’s Netflix series Mind Hunter.  Another of these current films is the restrained, thoughtful My Friend Dahmer by director Marc Meyers.  Myers was able to take some time to speak to us about his film, the challenges in adapting a successful graphic novel, his phenomenal cast, and what it was like peering into the dark soul of Jeffery Dahmer. read more
