Metallica’s Kirk Hammett Brings his Extensive Horror Poster Collection to Salem this Fall

The worlds of heavy metal and horror have always gone together perfectly.  Whether it was the original metal band Black Sabbath taking their name from the 1963 film starring Vincent Price, the devilish artwork that graced an Iron Maiden album cover, or the ominous chords of Metallica intoning “the Call of Ktulu”, metal fans are by nature horror fans.

And of course, none are bigger than Metallica’s guitarist Kirk Hammett.  In 2012, Hammett shared his love of horror and his extensive memorabilia collection with the world through his book entitled Too Much Horror Business and he is about to share his collection in  a much more personal way.  read more

WGN America’s “Salem” Comes to an End

Currently in its third season on WGN America, “Salem” has been cancelled and will not appear on the network following its finale in early 2017. The show, which is a retelling of the 17th century Salem witch trials, was not without its fans as the premiere drew in 1.5 million viewers according to Deadline.

“Salem”, which debuted in 2014 was created by Adam Simon and Brannon Braga and was the first scripted television series to run on the WGN America network. Fans of the show will not have to worry about the show coming to an abrupt end with no real ending (those old enough will remember that happening with the show “It’s Your Move” starring a young Jason Bateman), Braga and Simon said in a statement that, “we knew this would be the final season and were able to craft an exciting climax to Mary’s transformational saga.” read more

New Trailer for Salem Season 3 Teases Hell Ahead

But the devil is a liar, and instead of a New World free from murderous Puritan hypocrisy, his own plan will bring nothing but death and slavery with the ultimate aim of leading humanity to destroy itself.” read more
