The new George R.R. Martin TV series is more Event Horizon than Game Of Thrones
Nightflyers, the new Syfy show based on a 1980 novella by Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, attempts to locate the ghostly scares in the machine, and while it serves up cool imagery and compelling performances, the show is lacking in execution. It’s never boring, but it struggles to rise above the uneven handling of the material.

Is there Really a JACOB’S LADDER Remake Hitting Theaters on February 1st?
We’ve heard nothing about the film’s production; nada. It’s also a mere 68-days until the remake’s stated release date, and we haven’t seen a poster, an official synopsis, and we most certainly haven’t seen a trailer. The film does appear on LD Entertainment’s list of upcoming releases but doesn’t include a release date. I’ve personally put in a call to the folks at LD and will keep you apprised on their response (if they do, in fact, respond that is).

Horror at the Box-Office
As states last week, we only had a few upcoming horror films to hit the silver screen for this week. Those being Anna and the Apocalypse and The Possession of Hannah Grace.
Starting with Anna, who was only able to premiere in five cinema’s but has had a fairly successful run considering it’s minute distribution bringing in $52 thousand dollars and placing 32nd on the box office listings.
Hannah Grace on the other hand has fared slightly better with an opening weekend take of $6.5 million dollars through just over 2000 theaters and hitting the 7th spot in the rankings.
Considering these are the last theatrical horror films out this season, we can just take them for this week and afterwards, we can all begin to look back on this last year of amazing horror we’ve had.
