Evil Episodes Podcast: Episode #78 Animal Infestation

Your Horror TV Fix is back!
It’s Evil Episodes Podcast #78
On this episode we have a double feature review of Chiller’s Animal as well as Infestation. Haven’t heard of either movie? We’re not surprised as one barely made a blip on TV while the other seems stuck in “don’t know what to do with it” movie purgatory. That’s ok though because we will give you the scoop on whether one or both are worth checking out. We also get into the latest on The Walking Dead’s S5. Two more episodes have aired since we last recorded. Jamie & Brian talk The Omen movies (which Mike largely stays quiet for since he actually just covered them on the latest sidecast episode dropping soon). Mike is still watching 12 Monkeys, and finally saw a couple episodes of Helix’s 2nd season.  All this plus the usual news including trailers for Bates Motel Season 3, Wayward Pines & more…………….!

Chiller TV’s ANIMAL gets a trailer.

Producer Drew Barrymore takes a swing at horror.  The movie looks like a pretty standard setup, a group of good-looking 20-somethings venture into the woods for a trip and encounter…….something.  With that said, familiar isn’t always bad, and Chiller has been on somewhat of a roll lately with original content. This one looks like it has potential to keep the ball rolling.  Check out the teaser below!


ANIMAL will air later this year on CHILLER after a VOD release on June 17th!

Evil Episodes Podcast: Episode #43 Giant Fear of Axes & Bunyan’s

Welcome back to the darkside of the tv dial!

On the latest installment we start off with our thoughts on a couple of new shows to hit the airwaves, WHODUNNIT, a murder-mystery reality show of sorts, and Stephen King’s Under the Dome.  Mike & Jamie then go on to give their thoughts on the start of Dexter season 8!  Very slim news segment this week featuring a couple of video game tidbits including Mike’s thoughts on Tell Tale’s “400 Days” episode of The Walking Dead game.
After that it is onto this episode’s featured review, another double-feature, SYFY’s Axe Giant: The Legend of Paul Bunyan, and Chiller’s 5 Senses of Fear anthology.  Which won has us running for the hills and which won was Corey able to win Mike’s recommendation over by the end of the review? (Jamie would have none of it, haha)
Then we welcome Dan from The Skeleton Crew to discuss 6 episodes of Tales from the Darkside, yes not the usual 3, but 6….this segment really could have been a show of it’s own, which is why you will notice the extremely long running time of this episode. Before all is said and done we talk Teddy Ruxpin, Smokey the Bear, and McGruff the Crime Dog, not to mention Mike & Dan giving their thoughts on Season 3 of AMC’s The Killing thus far.

Chiller keeps your appetite wet for more horror originals with “BENEATH”

Chiller original productions are certainly a mixed bag. Some have been decent, some just awful. However, the fact that Chiller keeps churning original movies productions out is a positive sign that they will keep making a go at it hoping to make some good quality horror movies. With that, the latest original production is officially under way….it’s titled BENEATH and the synopsis is as follows:

Chiller’s original movie Beneath has commenced production in Oxford, CT with an eye towards a Spring 2013 premiere. Beneath stars Danny Zovatto (Innocence), Bonnie Dennison (Stake LandThird Watch), Chris Conroy (Sorority Row), Jonny Orsini (Imogene), Griffin Newman (Political Animals) and Mackenzie Rosman (7th Heaven).  Also joining the cast is Emmy-nominee Mark Margolis (Breaking Bad) as Mr. Parks.

When a group of young friends commemorating their high school graduation take a trip to the remote Black Lake, their celebration turns into a nightmare with the sudden appearance of a bloodthirsty, underwater predator.  Stuck in a leaking boat with no oars, the teens face the ultimate tests of friendship and sacrifice during a terror-stricken fight for survival.  

Beneath is written by Tony Daniel and Brian D. Smith, and directed by horror icon Larry Fessenden (The Last WinterHabit). Produced by Fessenden and Peter Phok for Glass Eye Pix (Stake LandThe InnkeepersI Sell The Dead).

Evil Episodes 017: Sometimes Dead Is Better!

Welcome back to episode 17 of Evil Episodes!

Darrick is back for the full episode this time around as we open up with a couple news items from the site, as well as a tidbit on an “interesting” casting choice for the second season of American Horror Story.

Chiller goes origin story hunting with Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies!

The sheer amount of horror movies that begins with a screen of all too familiar text “Based on true events” is enough to make you pull out your hair and gouge out your eyes before anything scary has even taken place. Just how accurate do the movies stay to the events they are based on? No one really ever knows…..until now……

Chiller investigates the terrifying factual stories that inspired some of the scariest horror movies of all time, including Silent Hill, The Amityville Horror, The Mothman Prophecies and Poltergeist, through exclusive eyewitness interviews and reenactments of actual events. Paranormal investigator Katrina Weidman (Paranormal State) travels with three of her friends into the dark recesses of the unknown to uncover the buried secrets behind these four iconic films.

Brian Keene’s GHOUL gets a trailer and an air date….

Premiering April 13th on Chiller is GHOUL an adaptation from Brian Keene’s novel. This is the next in many planned original movies for the network which kicked things off a couple months back with Steve Niles’ REMAINS.

Synopsis: “It is the summer of 1984 when a teenage couple goes missing among the gravestones of the local cemetery. Twelve-year-old Timmy and his best friends, Barry and Doug, have grown up hearing stories about a sinister Ghoul that haunts the cemetery. Eventually, they begin to wonder if the horrific legend might actually be real. Timmy and his friends are forced to put their friendship to the ultimate test when they dig up long-buried secrets, facing their personal demons and the one hiding underground.”

Looks almost like a mix between Stephen King’s IT and STAND BY ME…will it come close to as good as either of the aforementioned titles? Only one way to find out, tune in to Chiller on April 13th (A Friday the 13th, of course)!

Get ready for Steve Nile’s REMAINS on Chiller by watching the webisode prequel “Road to Reno” now available!

This coming Friday, December 16th at 7pm/10pm eastern, Chiller will be debuting the zombie flick REMAINS based on the graphic novel of the same name.

Based on the IDW Publishing graphic novel written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) and illustrated by Kieron Dwyer, Remains is set in a chilling post-apocalyptic Reno, Nevada, and follows the survivors of a bizarre accident that reduced most of the world’s population to zombies. The group takes refuge in a vacant casino and fights a losing battle against the undead, who grow steadily stronger, smarter and more aggressive by the minute. The movie stars Grant Bowler (True Blood, Ugly Betty), Lance Reddick (Fringe, Lost, The Wire), Miko Hughes (Pet Sematary) and Tawny Cypress (Rescue Me, Heroes). Remains is written by John Doolan and directed by Colin Theys; Andrew Gernhard and Zach O’Brien will serve as producers for Synthetic Cinema International.

However, you don’t have to wait until Friday to get your first bite of action from the story as Chiller is offering a 10 minute prequel webisode titled “Road to Reno” right now exclusively at their website. (Unfortunately they are not allowing embedding at this time so the best I can do is point you to the webisode HERE, if that changes I will embed the video here on the site)
