A devastating heat wave surging through southern Europe has earned the unofficial moniker of “Lucifer,” according to several news reports this weekend. Things over there do seem pretty bad, real bad, bad enough there that the only logical conclusion is Satan danced down there himself, possibly with a fiddle, and…
Lucifer just wrapped up its second season, resolving its “Satan’s mum comes to Earth and fucks shit up” plotline in typically over-the-top style. The show is consistently nuts—a mix of crime-solving, relationship drama, spiritual angst, and cheeky humor that should feel overstuffed, especially given the hero is the…
Lucifer has been on hiatus since late January, when a two-part episode saw Lucifer realizing the true nature of his relationship with Chloe, as well as traveling back to Hell to rescue her from a deadly poison. Now we’ve got a peek at the show’s return next month, with the introduction of a key new character.
Lucifer introduced the Devil’s mother at the start of season two; now, it appears we’ll soon be meeting dear old Dad. Sorta. The very funny Timothy Omundson (Galavant, Psych) has just signed on for a guest-starring role as God. With a twist, though.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome aboard the most metal flight of your lives. Let’s do some sky crimes.
Lucifer’s season premiere, “Everything’s Coming Up Lucifer,” picks up just days after the end of season one. The dapper Mr. Morningstar is still obsessed with himself (of course), but he has a new problem: the whereabouts of his mother, who has recently escaped from hell, and is likely mad as her former prison to boot.
Indie director Joel Potrykus’ next movie is combining science and black magic, and apparently has Satan as a co-star. Where do we sign up?
Everyone loves Pokémon—everyone except radio show host and pastor Rick Wiles. He recently recounted a story on his show about how he called police on a man he saw taking photos of his office building, only to learn the suspect was playing the popular new app Pokémon Go.
Damien, A&E’s sequel to The Omen, will not be back for another season. This news comes straight from creator and showrunner Glen Mazzara, who announced it via a series of tweets this afternoon:
“There are things... going on... in my house,” Geena Davis solemnly announces in the trailer for the upcoming TV show The Exorcist, which looks to be very loosely inspired by the classic horror movie that provides its title. The demon is still present and accounted for, however.
Current A&E drama Damien picks up where The Omen ended, fast-forwarding to cast the Antichrist as a 30-year-old New Yorker who’s rediscovering his demonic destiny. It’s an uneven show. But Satan’s pop-culture moment surges forth with the announcement that an Omen prequel movie is now in the works.
Despite our initial misgivings—did we really need another police procedural?—Lucifer won us over fast. In fact, after just two episodes, we were ready to declare it the best supernatural detective show we’d ever seen. Now, with the finale airing tonight, we’re just as excited about the show as ever. Here’s why.
Chalk another one up for Satan: Fox’s Lucifer has been renewed for a second season. Loosely based on Neil Gaiman characters, the show has managed to find great success during its freshman year with a blend of police procedural, supernatural drama, and slyly hilarious pop culture commentary. Hail!
If you missed The Witch on its first rollout, Robert Eggers’ horror sensation will be re-upping its theater bookings this weekend to a carefully-chosen number: 666. But really, this new push is aimed at luring repeat business. Just look at the new trailer below, which dances dangerously close to the fiery realm of…
Nearly everything that happens on Damien is utterly ridiculous. But we’ve narrowed it down to the three most WTF-did-that-just-happen moments. Par for the course when you’re dealing with the Antichrist, the type of guy who can inspire spontaneous self-castration among those in his midst.
We already knew that Amenadiel plucked Malcolm and his sleazy facial hair from the fiery pit after the fallen police officer was taken off life support. And we knew that Dan, who’s been trying to hard to work things out with Chloe, was the person who shot him. But in both cases, we didn’t know why.
After all that flailing around after those damn missing wings, this week’s Lucifer, “Et Tu, Doctor?” was way light on the Satan stuff. The homicide du jour also took a back seat, as Lucifer came to the unpleasant realization that he was capable of jealousy—and Chloe’s corruption case took an unexpected turn.
Lucifer. Damien. The Witch. A new TV show based on The Exorcist. Hell, even Once Upon a Time is getting in on the current craze for Satanic, but this is certainly not the first time demons have infiltrated entertainment. A new book aims to trace the history of how the supernatural came to be so damn popular.
The dark lords of television have arranged it so that on Mondays, you can watch Lucifer at 9pm on Fox, then switch over to A&E for Damien at 10pm. The jury’s still out on Damien—we weren’t super-stoked on the first episode—but Lucifer turned in one of its best yet with “Wingman,” as the relationship between “Lucy” and…
In A&E’s TV sequel to the classic movie The Omen, Damien is a most reluctant Antichrist. But it turns out watching a guy fretting he may be the spawn of Satan isn’t nearly as entertaining as actually watching the spawn of Satan wreaking havoc upon the world.
