‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Is a Bingeworthy Horror Mindtrip That’s Helping Shape TV’s Brand New Rules

6 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wednesday night’s installment of “Channel Zero: No-End House” was an episode-length dose of that universal feeling that comes with watching a piece of finely tuned horror: the tiny voice inside (or outside) that screams, “No! Don’t do it!” As with all on-screen tales of terror, the Syfy anthology series has mined plenty of moments like this in its second season, themed around the all-encompassing psychological consequences of an insidious haunted house. But while “The Damage” was a relative breather in the scope of what’s come before it, “No-End House” as a whole remains an ambitious series that’s building on the innovations of TV’s latest narrative wave.

As two friends who get sucked into the horror of No-End House, a literal end-of-the-road attraction with escalating horrors in each of its six rooms, Margot (Amy Forsyth) and Jules (Aisha Dee) have been fighting memories of their »

10 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The premiere of “Con Man” took place on Sept 9, 2017 on the Syfy channel. This is a dream come true for Alan Tudyk.

‘Blood Drive’ Gets Canceled After One Season, but at Least Syfy Is Taking Chances on Crazy Ideas

7 September 2017 2:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s a sad day for fans of the ol’ ultraviolence, as Syfy’s “Blood Drive,” a gleefully disturbing mash-up of horror and sci-fi tropes, will not be returning for a second season. In a heartfelt letter to fans yesterday, creator James Roland described how much making the show meant to him — and how disappointed he was that it had been canceled.

“I got to make a show that I love so much I actually watch episodes as a fan (don’t tell anyone it makes me sound like a douchebag). The past two years are maybe the best of my life, creatively and personally. But none of that prepared me for how incredible it was seeing the show connect with you all on a deep level,” Roland wrote.

Set in a post-apocalyptic 1999, “Blood Drive” skewered both specific films (the show featured a cross-country road race similar to “Death Race 2000 »

It’s not hard to see how Ryan Murphy arrived at his premise for “Ahs” Season 7. To say that many Americans have been living out their own personal horror story isn’t an overstatement — not with border closings, hate speech, and potential treason all enabled by the White House — but the new season manages to undermine the left’s legitimate fears and amplify the right’s monstrous traits all in one frenzied mess of an allegory. »

‘Con Man’ Creator/Star Alan Tudyk Talks Possible Syfy Expansion For Short Form Comedy Series

25 August 2017 9:46 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Blood Drive's Colin Cunningham Details the Evolution of Slink — Plus: How He Asked for (And Got) Full Frontal Nudity

25 July 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Blood Drive‘s titular race for years had been a subversive affair sneaked to lookie-loos via closed-circuit TV. But as the gauntlet gained a following, evil overlord Heart Enterprises stepped forward with a national broadcast and (gasp/ugh) “notes.”

Julian Slink — the race’s Master of Mayhem — at first waved off the input, steadfastly “trying to retain his integrity as an artist, to come up with something of worth that is meaningful,” says portrayer Colin Cunningham. Or at least “something of worth” as pertains a contest where the cars are fueled by ill-gotten human blood. But in this Wednesday’s »
