'The Simpsons': Guillermo del Toro on creating the epic opening to 'Treehouse of Horror XXIV'

In trying to scare up some laughs for its annual Halloween episode, The Simpsons also got deadly serious: They recruited big-screen writer-director Guillermo Del Toro. Known for crafting surreal worlds of fantasy and horror (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Devil’s Backbone) as well as action (Pacific Rim), Del Toro turned Springfield into his own wicked playground with a 2-minute-45-second couch gag/ opening-titles extravaganza to kick off Oct. 6’s “Treehouse of Horror XXIV.” It’s a dense, elaborate, clever, creepy, impressive creation — and it requires several viewings to process all of the action. (See for yourself below.) READ FULL STORY

'Being Human' super-baddie Mark Gatiss primes us for tonight's finale

He’s a mean one, Mr. Snow. He’s so scary that even Hal (Damien Molony) shakes in his presence. And he’s finally arrived in Barry—with plans to takeover (and eat) the entire world. So what better man to play him than actor-writer-producer (and Being Human creator Toby Whithouse’s friend) Mark Gatiss, who besides penning Doctor Who episodes and co-creating Sherlock (in which he also plays Mycroft), spawned the BBC series A History of Horror? Below, Gatiss tell us where Being Human fits into the timeline of scary flicks, why he might be on Team Twilight, and what we need to know about Mr. Snow and Hal before tonight’s explosive finale.


First look: Syfy's 'Winged Terror' creature design -- PHOTO

What does a Winged Terror look like anyway? Well, there should be wings. It should be terrifying. Fangs would be nice. And beyond that… it’s pretty much an open field, isn’t it? Syfy is about to go into production on its latest creature feature, Winged Terror, which is being shot in Louisiana and will be released next year (what, not Cajun Death Crawdad? Bayou Banshee?). Here’s the network’s first-look creature design, below. Fly monkeys, fly! READ FULL STORY

Presenting the first ever pictures of 'Bigfoot'! (The Syfy movie, that is) -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Folks who always longed for a Brady Bunch meets Partridge Family bloodbath will finally get their wish…with Bigfoot thrown in the mix for good measure! That’s right, the Syfy creature feature Bigfoot — starring Barry Williams and Danny Bonaduce — will be hitting the small screen later this year. The two former child stars play lifelong rivals (naturally) who both are trying to capture the hairy beast, but for very different reasons. However, if you think Greg Brady, Danny Partridge, and a Sasquatch are the only reasons to check out the telepic, then you are sorely mistaken. This cinematic tour de force (to be directed by Bruce Davison) also stars Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks), Howard Hesseman (WKRP in Cincinnati), and shock rocker extraordinaire Alice Cooper (School’s Out). So, it’s basically the BEST CASTING EVER is what we’re saying. And to whet your appetite for this epic feast of absurdity, we’ve got your first look photos right here! And yes, that is Sherilyn Fenn playing the cop with the furry hat.

A&E developing 'Psycho' prequel TV series

Get ready to fear your shower all again: It’s time to check back in to the Bates Motel. But don’t get scared at the prospect of another tired Psycho movie remake just yet. A&E announced today that, in conjunction with Universal Television, they’ll resurrect cinema’s most iconic lodge for a new scripted series called Bates Motel. The cable network is currently in script development for the series (the script was written by Anthony Cipriano), which according to a statement “will give viewers an intimate understanding of how Norman Bates’ psyche developed from his childhood through his teen years. Fans will have access to the dark, twisted back story and learn first hand how his mother, Norma, and her lover damaged Norman, helping forge the most well-known serial killing motel owner in history.” READ FULL STORY

'American Horror Story': Ryan Murphy talks Tate's backstory and previews next week's 'pivotal' episode -- EXCLUSIVE


Tonight was the wrap-up to American Horror Story’s two-part Halloween installment, and viewers learned more about the dark past of Tate (Evan Peters). It appears that the school shooting fantasies plaguing Tate were not a dream but a reality, and his victims came calling for a little payback (or at least recognition of the heinous thing he had done). Plus, Constance (Jessica Lange) admitted to Violet that Tate was one of her children! EW talked to co-creator Ryan Murphy about tonight’s episode, and what’s in store for next week’s hour, titled “Piggy Piggy.” I’m scared already.  READ FULL STORY

Eli Roth will (fake) shock you in Discovery's 'How Evil Are You?' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

On the night before Halloween, there will be no ghosts or goblins skulking about in How Evil Are You? (Discovery Channel, 9 p.m.), but that doesn’t make it any less disturbing. Hosted and produced by Hostel writer-director Eli Roth, the one-hour special — which is part of the Curiosity series — examines the nature of evil as the horror movie maven submits to a brain scan that measures his physiological responses to upsetting images (and compares them with those from potentially psychotic minds). As his pièce de résistance, though, he re-stages Yale Professor Stanley Milgram’s controversial 1961 experiment. (In the Milgram experiment, subjects were ordered to give a set of increasingly powerful electric shocks to people as punishment for answering questions incorrectly. The shocks weren’t real; Milgram was simply seeking to explore subjects’ limits on obeying authority, and the results weren’t always pretty.) In this clip, you’ll see a tease of what happens when Roth decides to put a new set of subjects in the hot (electric) seat to find out if we’re “better or worse than we were 50 years ago.” Press play or WE WILL ADMINISTER 450 VOLTS ALL OVER YOU. (Just kidding. It’s not even plugged in.) READ FULL STORY

'American Horror Story': Ryan Murphy talks 'Home Invasion' and 'most horrifying addition' yet -- EXCLUSIVE


Tonight was the second episode of FX’s new thrillride, which found Vivian (Connie Britton) and Violet Harmon (Taissa Farmiga) under attack from a trio of thugs hoping to recreate a famous murder. (Be sure and read Jeff Jensen’s recap when it goes up later tonight/tomorrow morning.) Ben (Dylan McDermott) also returned to Boston to visit his pregnant mistress Hayden (Kate Mara). Plus, Constance (Jessica Lange) hooked up with a really hot dude who may or may not be a gigolo!

With so much action, EW talked to co-creator Ryan Murphy about the events of “Home Invasion” and asked him to answer some of the major questions on the minds of readers.  READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con 2011: Greg Nicotero partners with Robert Kirkman to produce line of 'Walking Dead' merch -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment imprint has joined forces with legendary make-up effects wizard Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead, Grindhouse) to produce a line of products based on Kirkman’s long-running undead comic and other Skybound titles. “I was so jealous when I saw what Greg Nicotero and KNB EFX Group created for AMC’s The Walking Dead television show that I sat down with him to see if he’s be interested in working his magic on The Walking Dead comic book series,” Kirkman said in a statement. “Luckily he agreed, and now I get to see awesome 3-D representations of the zombies that have appeared in the comic book over the years.”


'Teen Wolf': Watch the fang-tastic new trailer -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

MTV’s TV series reboot of the classic ’80s comedy Teen Wolf, premiering on June 5 after the MTV Movie Awards, is set to be markedly different from the Michael J. Fox flick. For starters, there doesn’t seem to be a modern version of best pal and love interest, the awesomely named “Boof” (travesty!). Instead, the network is going for an edgier approach and hoping to attract the audience of two other supernatural classics. “When I first talked to MTV about it, I said what if we do it kind of like The Lost Boys with kind of the pace and fun of Buffy,” exec producer Jeff Davis (Criminal Minds) told EW in February. “We’ve had comparisons to Vampire Diaires. That’s a very brooding melodrama. This exists far closer to Buffy.” Watch the three minute trailer below and judge for yourself:  READ FULL STORY

Debbie Gibson and Tiffany in absurd 'Mega Python vs. Gatoroid' video clip -- EXCLUSIVE

Mega-Python-Debbie-GibsonImage Credit: SyfyBecause we know you can’t wait another minute for the SyFy channel’s latest movie, Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, we’ve secured this exclusive video peek of a wrestling match between a giant snake and a very large alligator. Sadly, you’ll still have to wait till Jan. 29 to see the film’s most beastly battle, a food-throwing, bitch-slapping catfight at a wedding reception between costars—and former mall-diva icons—Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. “I’ve got a couple of scrapes and bruises, but I didn’t get injured during the catfight scene,” Gibson tells EW. “It was just a lot of whipped cream to get out of my hair afterward.”
