Impressive Zombie Batman / Zombie Catwoman Art
Here is some impressive DC Comics artwork featuring zombie Batman and zombie Catwoman. Ali Jalali is a character and CG sculpture artist who calls this zombie Batman piece The Undead Rising. This Batman piece was created for the Comic-Con 2016 contest where artists were tasked with creating zombie versions of superheroes. Artist Anna Lakisova created the zombie Catwoman that is a little scarier in tone. Both pieces feature an impressive variation in style.

M. Night Shymalan and TNT‘s Tales From the Crypt Season 1 is scheduled to release in the fourth quarter of 2017 as revealed by TNT and TBS President Kevin Reilly.

We will not get to see The Cryptkeeper puppet however because of ownership issues (may be sorted out in time) so the shorts will not feature something as entertaining as that beloved character, he was a real highlight of the previous TV series.

Do You Know the Best Horror Museums in the United States?
Ever wondered what the best horror museums in the United States are and where are they located? I was creeped out while writing this list of horror museums as I learned that there is a book bound in human skin amongst other gut-wrenching/churning things. Most people would think of historical items, art, and dinosaur bones when they hear the word museum but a few will gaze off with excitement because horror museum comes to their mind when they hear word museum.
6 Fun PUMPKINHEAD Facts

This franchise is one that some may overlook, but you should give a chance because the demon creature is a little indistinguishable from the human monster Ed Harley played by Lance Henriksen.

Sony Cancelled Playstation's POWERS TV Series After 2 Seasons!?
It was confirmed today that Sony cancelled their first Playstation original series Powers after only 2 seasons. Season 2 of Powers ended nicely, and I was looking forward to watching Season 3 of Powers, but that is all cancelled now. Comic creator Brian Michael Bendis tweeted the fact to the Powers fanbase. Bendis leaves it open that Powers might find a new life somewhere else, but we know chances are slim for all the moving parts to fit the same again. That being said, I am still hooked on the show so I would watch the continuation if there is ever one. Sony screwed itself by locking the show behind their Playstation Network and subscription plans. I remember looking everywhere to rewatch the Powers Season 1 episodes again before the Powers Season 2 premiered but had an extremely hard time finding it. I did find it on Sony’s other streaming service Crackle. However, the quality was horrible, and the ads were too frequent, Sad news indeed for those of us who invested in the TV series and the story.

DEATH NOTE Movie Featuring Willem Dafoe as Voice of Ryuk the Shinigami
Adam Wingard‘s live-action Death Note (2017) film is one that I am paying close attention to and you should too. Willem Dafoe was announced to voice the Shinigami Ryuk. That casting is a terrific match as Dafoe played a similar character when he played the Green Goblin in Spider-Man (2002). Remembering Dafoe’s performance as the Green Goblin, it is easy to picture Dafoe in the role of Ryuk the Shinigami. The image of Ryuk provided here is taken from the Anime series. Dafoe will star with Nat Wolff as Light Turner and Keith Stanfield as L. Death Note is set to premiere on Netflix next year.
