The Twilight Zone (Original TV Series)

Twilight-Zone

“You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound; a dimension of sight; a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into…The Twilight Zone.” Few television shows have bequeathed a more treasured legacy of ideas and style, and it still stands as the role model for the anthology genre.

Kolchak: The Night Stalker (TV series)

KolchaktheNightStalker

Carl Kolchak (Darren McGavin) was the best investigative reporter you’ve never heard of. The reason for his anonymity? His exclusive accounts of mass murders and serial killings always wound up being suppressed by the authorities or shelved by his disbelieving editor, Tony Vincenzo (Simon Oakland). He had the scoops, they just never made it to print. Kolchak was the textbook example of the detective-journalist, right down to his crumpled seersucker suit and … Continue reading

The Land of Shadow and Substance – The premiere episode – “Where is Everybody?”

On October 2, 1959, America had the opportunity to view a brand new television show from CBS that eventually proved to be a classic. However, this very first show was different than the rest of the series, with only the story tale type and filming style staying consistent.

While the name Twilight Zone remained the same, … Continue reading

The Land of both Shadow and Substance with Thomas Scopel Inaugural Article

The date, January 13th, 2013. The place…somewhere nestled in a small beachside cottage along the mid-eastern seaboard of Florida. Now usually, going as far back as Christ’s disciples, including Judas, which was the thirteenth, to the more recent popular slasher horror film franchise, the number thirteen is primarily viewed as an unlucky number, often associated with negativity, wickedness and evil. … Continue reading

Four Faces Of Deadly Earnest

Shane Porteous, Ralph Baker, Ian Bannerman, Hedley Cullen 1

Deadly Earnest was a late-night horror host active on Australian television from 1966 to 1972. Broadcast weekly on the 0-10 Network, Deadly Earnest’s Aweful Movies featured mainly B-grade horror films introduced by Australian celebrity Ian Bannerman. Following Bannerman’s tongue-in-cheek characterisation, the program was notorious for showing the absolute dross of supernaturally-themed cinema, even going so far as to present the Worst Movie Of The Year on at least one occasion. While the … Continue reading

Grand Illusions

GI Georges Melies 3

In the current climate of rampant digital effects, ultra-real prosthetics and virtual 3-D cinematography, audiences are being spoiled. Special effects have become commonplace and of such a high standard that jaws are no longer dropping. This wasn’t always so. Special effects have come a long way since the invention of cinema and the path they have walked is fascinating.

Arguably, the first film ever made was called Fred Ott’s … Continue reading

SERIAL KILLERS A-E 1

A serial killer is defined as an individual who has murdered three or more people over a period of more than a month, usually with a cooling-off period between murders, and whose motivation for killing is usually based on psychological gratification.

Ingmar Bergman

IB Ingmar Bergman photo 1

Horror News is mostly devoted to horror as a definable separate genre, that is, to films that draw upon (and occasionally expand) an existing tradition. Most of the directors and writers who work in this field are very conscious of belonging to a generic tradition. But fantasies and nightmares can be created by anybody, and it sometimes happens that directors from quite different traditions find it appropriate to draw upon the world’s … Continue reading

Book: Conspiracies and Secret Societies

Conspiracies and Secret Societies have become common place in American history. Do you think in 2012, our Government now hides more or less from “we the people” than it has in the past?

The Prisoner (1967 TV series)

Prisoner photo 1

Howard Zimmerman summed it up nicely in Starlog magazine way back in 1978: “The Prisoner is a show steeped in paradox. It is one of the most exciting series ever produced for television, yet at the same time, watching it can be an extraordinarily frustrating experience. Why bother to watch a show when the action is misleading, the conclusions inconclusive? Because it is provocative, stimulating and thought-provoking.” It remains fresh and popular … Continue reading
