Nasvhille Comic Con and Horror Fest 2011 Day 1

01 Oct 2011

The first day of the Nashville Comic Con and Horror Fest at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds was a blast. This was pretty big with over 30,000 square feet of space and all of it being utilized this by no means was a small event. For someone that never ever has been to an event like this it was like being a kid with a sugar lust being able to run through a candy factory. A big surprise to me was the cast of AMC Walking Dead . My son drooled over Addy Miller and Madison Lintz who were pretty much his age from what I could tell. Heh I may have embarrassed him by making a bad joke that they are only interested in men for their brains or something like that. I also may may a comment that they dress like zombie for dates. I can not remember quite what I said. Generally I have that Monty Python type of humor. I think he will forgive me....In time. There was some other great moments at the Comic Con. Among the hidden thrills for me was seeing David Hedison of the classic Sci Fi series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea signing autographs and then rummaging through rows and rows of comics, videos, toys, and what ever else there was . Heh I even got a Godzilla toy from Japan and a Zombie Warning sign to hang on my wife's office door. Helps to warn the kids not to enter a restricted area. Also met some local business owners that have some unusual business. One is the TN Ghostbusters. I guess they go around for special events like the Ghostbusters. They sure had all the toys and garb that look official enough to pass off as the real deal., You can check them out and what they are about at TN-GB.com. One real unusual set up was the Silver Screen Church. From what I can tell it is a real church of sorts that meet and show vintage movies from time to time (bi-monthly)like Harry Potter, Back to the Future, Gremlins, Ghostbusters, Jurassic Park, Jaws and others to as a way to preach the word. On a personal not I am so curious to check that out. I may drop in one of these day to see what they do. Other groups also included the TN paranormal Society. I did not get any pamphlets or cards from them so for now I will leave the web address blank until I can accurately post it. When I tried to look up them I was surprise to have found that there were more of those type of organizations then I anticipated.

I can't wait till tomorrow. If all goes right I will be back and this time I think there will be the Dr Who panel and other guess.Maybe this time I can gets one Q and A with someone . If so I will post it right here again along with more pics or another video slide of the event. But for now here is a quick video slide show I made of the day.

AMC Fearfest Schedule for 2011

30 Sep 2011

Here is something that is seasonable that I always look forward to. It's AMC Fearfest . It happens to be one of my favorites because I can either set my DVR or if I am lucky get to see ( that is if the little ones are not roaming around the tv) some of my favorite classic horror and sci fi type movies. This year is no exception and it will have a twist to it as it will be hosted by George Romero who is best known as the Godfather of all Zombies. This year there is an impressive linup of movies and shows . The main schedule for Fearfest is shown below but with some digging I found their entire horror and sci fi schedule list for October and it is huge. And guess what I managed to include the list here below the fearfest schedule. If you have trouble seeing some of the schedule which I placed in a simple table like order. You then can go to AMC website. The links to the particular pages are also listed below on the section titles. I thought that would make it easier for anyone that wants to book mark certain events or get more info on an event. Speaking of their website. AMC has included some fun trivia type of games like the George Romero Trivia
, Scream trivia, Friday the 13th Trivia and of course the Halloween Series Trivia games. So check that out if your into those things.

Well here is the list I compiled it should be all they have for this month ……

Bedlam: BBC America Trailer- 10-01-11

29 Sep 2011

I like this trailer. It gives you this eerie scary type of old fashion haunted ghost story feel. If the series lives up to the trailer then BBC has another hit over here in the states. It just has that feel to me as a winner . Well we will see , right . I also included below the trailer the shows schedule for October.

Plot Synopsis from BBC America
Bedlam is a ghostly series set around Bedlam Heights -- a hip, newly renovated apartment building. Those who live there think they have the best address in the world, but little do they know their new home has a harrowing past.
The conversion of Bedlam Heights from a former insane asylum has awakened the ghosts of its dark and violent past. These spirits wish to reclaim what's theirs and seek revenge on those who have wronged them.
Kate (Charlotte Salt, The Tudors), a direct descendant of the people who ran the former asylum for generations, lives and works in Bedlam Heights. Her father, Warren (Hugo Speer, Skins), still owns the old family property, and Kate is helping him fill the remaining vacant apartments. She shares her apartment with roommates Ryan (Will Young, Skins) and Molly (Ashley Madekwe, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), but only with the unexpected arrival of Kate's adopted cousin, Jed (Theo James, Downton Abbey) -- a troubled man with a history of mental illness who sees ghosts and visions of the past -- are they able to uncover the terrifying secrets of Bedlam Heights. The hauntings that follow prove that sometimes when you scratch away the surface, things aren't always what they seem.
Written and created by Neil Jones (Blue Murder), David Allison (Boy Meets Girl) and Chris Parker (EastEnders).
Bedlam Premieres Saturday, October 1st at 10pm/9c.

The Thing Trailer 2011

07 Sep 2011


Out in theaters on October 14th, 2011. Description below is taken from the Official Website

Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. It can look just like you or me, but inside, it remains inhuman. In the thriller "The Thing," paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers as they're infected, one by one, by a mystery from another planet.

Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up.

When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew's pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish.

"The Thing" serves as a prelude to John Carpenter's classic 1982 film of the same name.Directed by Matthijs Van Heijningen, the thriller is produced by Strike Entertainment's Marc Abraham and Eric Newman (Dawn of the Dead).
