TV series



I’m back! For those that weren’t aware, my wife and I actually went to Niagara Falls for our one year wedding anniversary for the long weekend, and had a blast! Consequently, I wasn’t available to write anything because we were so busy with other things [like a wax museum!] If you wanted to see these pictures, and others, from the trip – be sure to travel over to my Instagram page and click follow. [seriously, my account is set to “private” so you have to click “follow” before seeing anything] It didn’t help that the internet would constantly log me off in the hotel either.. but you’re not here to hear me complain; you’re here because we just got an Ash vs Evil Dead season 02 teaser trailer! For those of you that are just joining me, here on warrenisweird, I’m a huge fan of The Evil Dead and the TV series is no different. I even wrote an entire review on season 01, which took way too long [here you go!] but now, we’ve got a teaser trailer for season 02! I sure hope you’re ready, cause I know I am! [spoilers are everywhere in this trailer, especially involving the events that took place in season 01]

Season 02 of Ash vs Evil Dead jumps back into the action with Ash leaving his beloved Jacksonville and returning to his hometown of Elk Grove. It’s there that he confronts Ruby: The former enemies have to form an uneasy alliance as Elk Grove soon becomes “the nucleus of evil” – whatever that means. [I’m sure we’ll learn more about it as the season goes on, most likely as it heads towards the finale]


The cast is, of course, led by the legend himself Bruce Campbell in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless is back as the evil – but beautiful – Ruby, who [for those that remember from season 01] possesses the powerful Necronomicon; Ray Santiago as fan-favorite Pablo Simon Bolivar, who is Ash’s loyal sidekick who is still dealing with the trauma he suffered in the cabin; and finally – Dana DeLorenzo as my favorite: Kelly Maxwell, who – grief-stricken after the death of her parent – plots her revenge against The Evil Dead. Did I mention Ash‘s father – Brock – is set to make an appearance? This season is shaping up to be almost better than the first! But let’s cut to the chase, you’re here to watch the trailer for season 02, don’t worry; I forgive you. Check out the trailer below! But first, I have only one question to ask you: who’s your favorite character in the show? Is it lovable Pablo, who seems to be earning his shamanistic powers? Or is it the badass Kelly, who wants to exact her revenge after the death of her parents. Let me know in a comment or two!

EVERYBODY DIES in MTV’s Scream: The TV Series

Ever since it was announced, I’ve been finding myself concerned for MTV‘s Scream: The TV Series. It may be because of my in depth review of the first film though, considering I called Scream one of the most important horror films of it’s time – if not all time! It’s not so much the series as a whole I’m worried about, but rather how is it going to translate from big budget film[s] to television? I’m not quite sure what kind of show MTV plans to deliver, but with the first episode releasing on June 30th, 2015; I’m becoming more and more curious as to how this show will all play out. As we learned in the Scream films, Everyone has secrets. Everyone tells lies. Everyone is fair game. And everybody dies – and this show seems no different, boasting murders at parties, and everyone being on the floor: either with slit necks, or knives in their heads! The odd thing about MTV producing this show is that Scream [the original film] was actually the winner of the 1997 MTV Movie Award for Best Picture. Another interesting thing to note about this new version of the series is that it doesn’t take place in the same town as the films, but rather a smaller town known as Lakewood. For those unfamiliar with Scream: The TV Series, I’ve included the synopsis below:

“After a cyber-bullying incident results in a brutal murder, the shocking violence stirs up memories of a  killing spree from the past that has haunted some, intrigued others and maybe just inspired a new killer. A group of teens – with two old friends struggling to reconnect at its heart – become lovers, enemies, suspects, targets and victims of a killer who’s out for blood.”

I love Ghostface just as much as everyone, but apparently the signature mask will NOT be appearing in the show…

Since we still have a month and a bit before it’s release, I find myself with a few questions involving the show: with the most important being: will the “rules” apply? Or will the series be, or feel, as comedic as the films felt at times? It’s something we will have to wait til the end of June to find out with ten episodes being made for season one. The show will be written by Jill Blotevogel, [who wrote a few episodes of 2002’s The Twilight Zone]  and will have Canadian Director Jamie Travis on board as well. This series was originally planned to be released in mid-2014, however, this was changed to Summer 2015 with the pilot episode being called Red Roses”.

Now the question is, are you excited for Scream: The TV Series? If you’re still not entirely sure how to feel about all this; check out the newest promo for the show, entitled: “Killer Party” below – it’s bloody, it’s vicious, and it looks [half-] decent so far.
