"Buffy" Spin-Off "Ripper" Is More Likely Than Ever

At Collectormania Glasgow, attendee Anthony Stewart Head told SyFyPortal that "Ripper", the long-rumored BBC series featuring his "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" character Rupert Giles, may finally be a go.

BBC Miniseries "Jekyll" on DVD

Jekyll DVD

BBC Video told ShockTillYouDrop.com that the horror miniseries Jekyll will be released to DVD in America on September 18th. The two-disc set will contain over five hours worth of bonus material, including featurettes and a commentary track. Suggested retail price will be $29.98.

Written by Steven Moffatt (who wrote some of the creepier episodes of the new "Doctor Who"), the series follows Dr. Jackman (James Nesbitt), a resident of modern-day London, who is haunted by his vicious alter ego, Mr. Hyde (also Nesbitt). However, the two have agreed to a compromise -- they have a kind of time-share on Jackman's body and Hyde's actions are rigorously monitored with the latest in high-tech surveillance equipment. You can preorder the set here.

It's Nothing Like "Angel," We Swear: CBS's New Vamp Detective Show "Moonlight"

Sophia Myles and Alex O'Loughlin

He sleeps in a freezer, not a coffin.  He gets his blood from his dealer, a guy who works at a blood bank.  He doesn't burst into flames in the sun and he can't be killed with a stake through the heart.  He likes golf, Steve McQueen movies, classic Star Trek and Miles Davis.  That's the modern vampire as seen on the new fall show Moonlight (airing Fridays on CBS at 9PM EST/PST, starting September 28th).

Mick St. John, played by Alex O'Loughlin, is the latest vampire detective to hit primetime TV.  It's a subgenre that most people equate with Joss Whedon's prematurely cancelled Angel.  Executive producer Joel Silver says that Moonlight will not be Angel 2.0.  "It's just a different world," he says.  "There are no demons, there are no other entities.  It's a world where there are vampires, and they're around, and they're living among us.(read more...)

Demon Terrorists and Amoral Women: The Upcoming Season of "Supernatural"

Warning: The following article contains spoilers for the third season of "Supernatural".

"They're hidden among us, they could be anybody, we don't know who they are, they're among the towns in America and they're waiting to wreak as much havoc as possible. "

That's not the latest warning from Homeland Security. It's creator/executive producer Eric Kripke talking about the upcoming season of "Supernatural," a show which he describes as "two brothers battling the things that go bump in the night in a cool muscle car." He's at San Diego Comic-Con to discuss the show, along with star Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) and writers Sera Gamble and Ben Edlund. Jared Padalecki, who plays younger brother Sam Winchester, was filming in Vancouver all night and missed his flight down to San Diego.

Sci-Fi Originals Coming to the Small Screen in 2005

The Sci Fi Channel is widely renowned for the unique brand of original motion pictures it produces-masterpieces in both script, direction, and visuals.

Here's the list:

* Fire Alien, a tongue-in-cheek film about a fire-breathing alien, produced by William Shatner.

* Gryphon, an epic fantasy about a prince and princess from opposing sides of two warring kingdoms who must join forces to defeat a mystical gryphon conjured by an evil wizard.(read more...)

Fangoria Developing Own TV Channel

Fortunately, you read that headline correctly -- America's #1 horror magazine is indeed developing a 24-hour television channel, which surprisingly will debut sometime this month. This splendid news basically came out of nowhere last week, and was a little odd considering the Horror Channel had plans to debut some type of Fangoria-themed show as part of their programming.(read more...)
