If you watched some great syndicated shows during the late 1980s and early 90s, then you most likely did not miss seeing one of the best horror shows to hit prime time or late night TV on the weekends. Friday the 13th, which had nothing to do with Jason Voorhees, and was more in keeping with the true legend of Friday the 13th, really pushed the envelope back in the day, and the crew was able to produce some truly disturbing episodes in its run from 1987-1990.

If you were lucky enough to catch late night TV back in the early and mid 1990s, you most likely were caught up in one of the best syndicated shows that Canada had to offer. Based on an 80s film, Nick Knight, starring Aussie pop rocker and soap star, Rick Springfield, this small screen take far surpassed its film namesake in every way.
Take the original concept, move it further east and north, and bring not an Aussie to play the part of our frustrated vampire, but a Welshman (Geraint Wyn-Davies) instead. Keep the original partner cop from the first movie, Det. Don Schanke, played by the very flexible supporting actor from many 1980s teen films, from Sixteen Candles to Weird Science (John Kapelos). Another twist is now Nick’s best friend, a pathologist that knows Nick’s secrets, Dr. Jack Brittington (Robert Harper) is now just as brilliant, but far more pretty as Dr. Natalie Lambert (Catherine Disher).

Friday nights just got better with the new show from NBC called Grimm. Nick Burckhardt (David Giuntoli) and Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby) are 2 detectives that have just been thrown into a world of the strange and unnatural, a world that has actually been there all along. A college girl has gone missing all in red and now a little girl as well and the two have to find out what has happened to her before it is too late. That is the basic run down of the pilot that looks to be a hit for NBC and one that I will be looking forward to seeing again. Read more...(383 words, 3 images, estimated 1:32 mins reading time)
I would like to thank VampireFilmNews on Twitter for this wonderful and funny short video that is now on YouTube. Believe it or not this video is actually a commercial for the NHS Northamptonshire dentists that is taking advantage of all of the vampire and Twilight craze that is going on now. In this video we see a sexy scantily clad woman that is sensuously taking off her thigh high hose as she is getting ready for bed. This is not something you would expect to see on a commercial, not in the US and not that provocative but as they say, it’s not over yet. In the background you can hear someone walking and the music tempo gets more eerie and races to a crescendo when a vampire walks into the room and throws the woman to the bed. In true undead style he works his way up her body and then opens his mouth to take a nip from her well exposed neck. Read more...(452 words, 7 images, estimated 1:48 mins reading time)
