The CW will be airing the 300th episode of the TV show Supernatural this Thursday, February 7. This is yet another huge milestone for a show that is already the longest running sci-fi/fantasy series on television. Created by Eric Kripke and starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as Sam and Dean Winchester (respectively), Supernatural originally debuted on September 13, 2005 and this series has surpassed all expectations on longevity. A familiar face who appeared in the pilot and the early seasons was Jeffrey Dean Morgan as their father, John Winchester. Many readers will know him as Negan on The Walking Dead. Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be returning to the show for this milestone episode once again in his role as father to the Winchesters. Expect many tears to be shed at this reunion, both on the show and by fans watching the drama unfold. Currently in its 14th season, the show has already been renewed so the monster hunting will continue for at least another year.
The real question here is why did I allow myself to watch this movie in my dark basement while everyone in my house was asleep? I must really be a glutton for punishment because I did exactly the same thing with this year’s other terrifying supernatural film, Carlos Algara’s Verónica. There are two sub-genres of horror that really strike a nerve with me: one is home-invasion and the other is, you guessed it – the supernatural.
Now, I don’t know for sure what I “believe” when it comes to the supernatural, demons, possession, etc. What I do think, however, is that it’s possible…and since I think it’s possible, movies about the supernatural that are well done really make my skin crawl; well, Pyewacket made my skin crawl damn near off my body. read more
In a cool crossover moment between current pop culture and 1970s nostalgia, this Thursday March 29th’s episode of The CW’s hit show Supernatural will be like no other one before it. Castiel, Sam and Dean will step into the animated world of the timeless cartoon classic Scooby-Doo and join forces with the Mystery Gang to solve an important case. The mashup is an interesting and innovative concept from the show and the network, similar to Homer Simpson’s venture into the live-action realm of humans back in The Simpsons‘ 1995 Treehouse of Horror episode “Homer3.” Only reversed. read more
It’s common knowledge that showing your kids an Eli Roth movie would likely result in an immediate visit from Child Protective Services. That all changes with today’s announcement that the controversial director of such films as Hostel and The Green Inferno will be adapting a popular children’s book into a feature film! THR reports that Roth will be teaming up with Jack Black to bring John Belliers’ The House With a Clock In Its Walls to the silver screen. The script was written by Eric Kripke (the Supernatural television series), who will also be serving as a co-producer. read more

So much horror TV! As our DVRs reach their breaking point, we move into the second half of October. No new shows are on the horizon, but three returning shows are here for our continued enjoyment.
Supernatural. Thursday, October 13. 9PM on The CW.
Back for its 12th season, Supernatural is still going strong with plot lines and drama at the ready. This season, we get to spend a bit of time with the Winchester matriarch, Mary. Never mind that she has been dead since Sam was a baby; Supernatural cares nothing for death! This show moves characters through life and death, space and time, and in and out of reality however it sees fit. This season looks to be no different and will hopefully offer more of its less serious episodes to lighten the mood a bit as there will certainly be many tears this season. read more
It’s been a really, really long time since I was captivated by a television show the way that I was, and am, captivated by Stranger Things.
After hearing the whispers about ST at my job a few weeks ago and then scrolling by a few people discussing it on the trusty old Facebook machine, my wife and I decided to give the show a whirl last week…we were both fascinated from episode one.
The show, set in Indiana 1983, opens with a scientist frantically scurrying down the corridor of a dimly lit lab toward an elevator. It’s clear that he is trying to escape from something and you can tell by the tension-filled score that something bad is on its way. As he finally makes it into the elevator and the doors begin to close, it seems like he might make it; that is, of course, until he’s snatched up by something on the ceiling. Immediately, the action music stops and we’re transported to the basement of a suburban home where four pre-teen boys are engrossed in a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. read more
