I know this is not horror, it’s sci-fi, but it’s one of my favorite series of all time. There are a few elements of horror in there when you think about humans creating robots who act and look human, only to turn on their creators. There’s a bit of a Frankenstein, I Robot thing going on, but there’s also epic space battles and intense drama. Deadly writing duo, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning are to bring back Battlestar Galactica as a new ongoing series from Dynamite Entertainment in 2013. See all the details and teaser art below. READ MORE
On top of some amazing casting choices for Hatchet 3, it has also been announced that Bear McCreary, composer of Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead, will be scoring the film, which is being directed by Hatchet 1 cameraman BJ McDonnell. Bear has also composed Chillerama (the Zom-B-Movie segment), Rest Stop 1 & 2, Wrong Turn 2, and a great deal more. I’m a huge fan of Bear’s work so I’m more than excited for this third entry into the Victor Crowley legend.
