John Carpenter seems to be working hard in 2017. This is evident with his new 2 TV show deal reported earlier this year, one called Tales For A Halloween Night and the other, Nightside. On top of this, news surfacing this week indicates he is working on another new show on top of these 2. This show is untitled and relatively in the dark still, but a former partner and X-Men and X-Men 2 writer, David Hayter is going to be working closely with Carpenter to create it.
BUT WAIT! There is more, Carpenter is back and working but oh no, he isn’t just back working, he will take his rightful throne once again, the directors chair.
More to come.
Why is Ash the chosen one? This is a question that seems to hang above every fan of this TV show’s head. Hopefully this will be answered by the end of the upcoming season of the show.
Star of the show, Bruce Campbell leaked on an interview with Dread Central last week that this season is going to be much different to the last two, and a lot of answers will be uncovered. ‘Nothing will be the same’ are his exact words, and the origins and depth of Ash as a character will become clearer to the general fans.
SO hang in there till early next year fans, because that’s when you’ll be lucky enough to learn why Ash really is the chosen one.

AMC and Eli Roth are in the works of creating a 6-piece TV series that is going to be apart of AMC’s visionary specials that they have been running. The show will focus on the horror genre in it’s entirety. Eli had this to say about the series.
“I’m thrilled to be part of this incredible series. For years, I’ve wanted to create a definitive ‘History of Horror,’ a living record of the genre with interviews from all the greats, old and new,” said Roth. “Sadly, we lose more of these masters every year and with them go their stories and experiences. This show will serve as a record for future generations — fans and filmmakers alike — to enjoy. I could not be prouder to create this with AMC.”
The show is set to debut in October 2018, so until then we will have to do our own history.
In the past 48 hours, two stars of the cult show American Horror Story have made headlines due to decisions that will impact their future. Sarah Paulson joined the cast for Glass, whilst James Cromwell, who only featured for one season (Asylum) is potentially facing jail time, again.
Cromwell was leading a PETA organised rally at San Diego SeaWorld yesterday, in relation to the abuse of animals by SeaWorld was leaked in 2013 due to the documentary Blackfish. Cromwell , an avid activist for animal liberation and rights has been an inspiration too many, but unfortunately his actions despite being right or wrong have landed him in hot water. After spending 7 days in the big house late last year due to a separate protest, it’s likely he may be returning sooner than he would have liked.
