Episode #9. Yes it’s true, I actually got a consecutive episode out in two weeks time! Hooray! On this chilling episode we discuss Stephen King’s Bag of Bones adaption by Mick Garris on A&E, The season finale of Dexter’s 6th season, and Steve Nile’s Remains that aired on chiller. We also manage to mix in some talk about beer, alcohol and some other non-horror related stuff. As always send all feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org and please enjoy what is probably the final episode of 2011! Have a great holiday season & we’ll see you in 2012 for some more Evil Episodes!
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)
With The Walking Dead season 2 getting underway a few hours ago….or depending on when you are reading this, last night, it is safe to say that the Horror-TV season is in full effect and will be pretty jam packed with shows and series for the remainder of 2011. Despite all the shows currently airing, we still have NBC’s Grimm, Bag of Bones, as well as Chiller’s original movie, Remains, among many more that I have probably failed to mention.
That said, I want to know what you, the visitors of the site and listeners of the podcast think about all the returning series and new shows. It doesn’t matter if you enjoy ’em, hate ’em, want to pick certain elements apart regarding them. I am all for your feedback no matter what your opinions are, and I’d love to feature all of your thoughts in an upcoming episode of the podcast.
You can do something as simple as leave a reply on this topic below, email your thoughts to email@example.com or you can be even more bold and record your comments in audio form and send them to the same email and I will play them during the show.
With the audience of the podcast growing slowly but surely, I am always interested to get the pulse of the audience as to what they are watching and what they want to discuss. So speak up and be a part of an upcoming episode of the podcast!
The zombie apocalyptic tale Remains is one of two original movies CHILLER network plans to air in the near future and now it finally has an air date: Friday December 16th at 10pm….here is the synopsis from Chiller’s website:
“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.”
Also, a new original series called “The Future of Fear” airing Friday, November 25 at 8 PM goes as follows:
“Why do we love to be scared? What makes a truly great horror film? This two-hour special will delve into the compelling mysteries at the heart of the horror genre. Featuring commentary from greatest horror storytellers of all time, including John Carpenter, Wes Craven, George Romero, Anne Rice, Alan Ball and John Landis, The Future of Fear will take a look back at where horror has taken us, its place in mainstream American culture and what’s on the horizon for one of the most enduring and popular genres of all time.”
This is only the beginning for original programming on Chiller, as Chiller 13: Creepiest Kids as well as Ghoul will also be airing in the near future. For more on all of these upcoming movies & series visit Chiller’s website!
Thanks to DREAD CENTRAL for pointing me in the direction of Steve Niles facebook page where he shared the following one-sheet for his live action adaption of his novel “Remains” which is set to air on CHILLER network!
Be sure to check out Steve Niles facebook page for all sorts of updates on REMAINS, which is set to air on CHILLER network this fall!
By now we all know of CHILLER’s zombie flick “Remains” that is due to air later this year. The story as reported from Norwich Bulletin is as follows:
“The movie is set in Reno, Nev., where a blackjack dealer and a dancer find themselves the lone survivors of a bizarre accident that has reduced most of the world’s population to zombies.”
I have been to Reno, NV a handful of times so I am pretty interested to see how well they re-create the “biggest little city in the world” for the movie, from the actual location of Norwich, Conn.
Now the first images from the set as well as some behind-the-scenes footage has landed on the internet for all of us to enjoy. (click photo for images)
Remains is set to air later this year on CHILLER network
But that’s not all….behind-the-scenes footage has also started popping up courtesy of the cast & crew, which has been made available to everyone via youtube. Watch the short video below of the Director Colin Theys explaining part of the shoot the cast is about to tackle:
