What We Do in the Shadows is the only vampire mock-doc the world will ever need, because it is hilarious, raunchy, and perfectly self-aware. The werewolf-themed sequel (genius title: We’re Wolves) is percolating, and now the rumored TV spin-off is confirmed. But don’t get too excited about the latter just yet.
Tumblr is often a place where people discuss identity politics, but how much more complicated would those identity politics be if they included vampires, werewolves, fairies, and other fantastical creatures?
The Underworld movies have been pitting vampires and werewolves against each other since 2003, which is kind of amazing. In the fifth installment, Blood Wars, Kate Beckinsale is back in goth badass mode as Selene, whose enhanced vampire blood could tip the scales if it falls into the wrong hands... er, claws.
Now that we’re five seasons deep into Game of Thrones, another George R.R. Martin story may be coming to television: The Skin Trade, Martin’s 1989 novella about a detective trying to solve a gruesome murder case and a collections agent who suffers from lycanthropy.
Co-writer/co-director/costar Jemaine Clement has confirmed that a sequel to the vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows is in the planning stages. The first movie, a New Zealand indie which follows a group of vampire roommates as they bicker over chore wheels and feeding off the blood of virgins, amassed a…
A Southern California murder trial would be just another tragic tale of neighbor shoots neighbor, except the accused believes that he is a werewolf ... and he believed his victim was a vampire, according to the testimony of a forensic psychologist.
Argentinian President Christina Fernández de Kirchner has just adopted a 21-year-old man as her godson. This is a tradition that dates back more than a century, and it's to prevent the stigmatization of a family's seventh son — who, according to legend, turns into a werewolf-like demon. Update: This has been debunked.
Amazon is no stranger to independent publishing drama. But when it pulled books in the past, it at least purported to have some sort of legitimate reason. In the case of High Moor 2: Moonstruck (the story of one werewolf gang's quest to keep its existence hidden and the extreme lengths to which it goes to protect its…
Universal has staked out April 21st, 2017, for its third installment in its new classic monster cinematic universe after 2016's The Mummy. Despite my use of the word "stake", it'll probably be feature Frankenstein's monster of the Wolf Man, since Dracula's origin has so recently been Untold.
While they weren't always depicted as shirtless teen heartthrobs, creatures who turn from human into wolf (and vice versa) appear in tales dating back to antiquity. So throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, artists have had plenty of strange and creepy stories to inform their werewolf illustrations.
I hope you like your vampires gun-toting and weather black leather catsuits, because if Len Wiseman has his way, you'll be seeing a lot of them. At NYCC the director announced that two Underworld movies were in development — one of them possibly starring with Kate Beckinsale! — as well as a TV series.
The most memorable thing about season one of Hemlock Grove was the batshit transformation of a human into a wolf. How can this show beat that thrill this time around? By going even more crazy with the "wolf-face exploding out of human face" action. And by reversing the process.
You don't have to be a devoted aficionado of low-budget '80s action-horror flicks to appreciate the equally low-budget 2014 action-horror flick Wolfcop. But it's going to help… as is the ability to recognize the awesomeness of drunk werewolves getting in shootouts.
Netflix's "Twin Peaks with werewolves" series, created by Eli Roth, will release its second season on July 11th! The 10 episode-series is based on Brian McGreevy's novel of the same name.
Or at least we think it does.
I loved last night's episode of Being Human. Itwas super duper bold, ridiculously fan servicey, and a lot of fun. So much fun. Seriously, this show found the fun and brought it back. Thank goodness.
Okay. Either Bitten is a very subtle look at how fascists justify their oppression of others, or the show just has no clue that having its secondary protagonist castrating a man to death for choosing love over the law is supremely, supremely fucked.
Question: What sucks worse — being a werewolf on Bitten, because you have no other powers than to occasionally turn into a slightly-larger-than-normal wolf, or being a member of the Danvers pack, since you are completely incapable of dealing with any kind of conflict?
