It takes guts to run a zombie show in the era of the high-concept, high-budget Walking Dead. But Z Nation from Syfy does it the only way it can be done: it’s a run and gun, campy, yell-at-the screen show that doesn’t take itself seriously.
October is almost over, which means it’s nearly time to say goodbye to our annual horror series, 31 Days of Halloween. As we round up this year’s posts, here’s a quick look at some horror-related writings around the web.
With my sea creature-loving son turning six earlier this month, I had to show him the recipe I’d stumbled upon in my Pinterest travels: Sharknado Cupcakes. He laughed, and immediately requested that I make them for his classroom treat.
My husband was the Eureka fan first, so I came into this show just from him playing it on Netflix. He’s never really watched it through Syfy, but we’re the type to binge out on shows all at once. Without DVR, we’re both useless for remembering TV schedules. Still, while I’m not Who-levels of obsessed, […]
Hello, my name is Slay Belle, and I am a Halloween-o-phile. I’m sure this comes as no surprise to anyone who’s read my pieces for Persephone. They are heavy on the vampires and zombies and witches and occasional mentions of the family funeral home I spend holidays in. I like getting dressed up and giving […]
At the rehearsal lunch for the Keegan-Novelli wedding, groom Peter Novelli is pissy. The place is an absolute mess ““ there’s exactly one soccer ball on the lawn ““ and the bride’s father, Ben, doesn’t want to give in to Peter’s demands. He whines that he needs to be able to “provide” for his bride, […]
Ghost Hunters, on SciFi (I refuse to spell it their way!), is a reality show that follows The Atlantic Paranormal Society (or TAPS) as they travel the country visiting haunted houses and locations.
This week, Sally feels like she’s not part of the team, Josh is kidnapped and Aidan starts a turn down a really dark path.
This week, Sally pushes someone away when she shouldn’t, Josh pulls someone near when he should push them away and Aidan breaks my heart.
This week, Aidan makes a pint-sized friend, Sally meets from unfriendly ghosts and Josh gets more than friendly with NotNina.
Josh comes out to his parents, Sally tries to warn Bridget about her fate and Aidan tries to prevent a vampire/werewolf war from starting.
It”™s our first previously on! I feel like our show is becoming a woman… aw, let me wipe the tear away. In our first previously on, Josh pushed his sister away, Rebecca is a psycho and Danny killed Sally. You know what, Sally… I think it”™s kind of an ugly ring if that makes anything better. No? Right… moving on.
Sally finds out how she died, Josh finds out who made him a werewolf and Aidan finds out that Bishop’s making plans… and they’re not for a Valentine’s dinner.
Josh gets a werewolf friend, Aidan gets a Vamps Anonymous buddy and Sally gets jealous.
Our voiceover this week is about immortality. The dream of living forever. What happens to the past when you’re living forever, though? The past is haunting the roommates this week. Aidan walks in the streets and sees glimpses of the men he used to be (one of those men was apparently Marten from Q.C.).
