‘Stargate: Atlantis’ Cast Members Reunite For ‘State Of Syn’ Web Series

It’s a Stargate: Atlantis reunion! Jewel Staite (Stargate‘s Jennifer Keller), David Hewlett (Stargate‘s Rodney McKay), and Rainbow Francks (Stargate‘s Aiden Ford) have all assumed major roles on a new 3D web comic series titled State of Syn. Additionally, fans will be happy to hear the voice of Torri Higginson (Stargate‘s Elizabeth Weir) in the opening narration of each webisode.

This science fiction web drama created by Daniel Dales and Jarett Sherman, features a combination of voice-overs, photography, and comic still drawing and animation. Directed by Jed Weintrob, State of Syn plays out like a live comic in approximately five-minute segments; similar in length to a single issue. The images serve as moving panels, transporting the viewer from one scene to the next. Adding to cross-platform element of the show, the fans can also get involved with an “interactive companion game for IOS and Android devices.”

Curious? See the first two episodes for yourself and read a State of Syn‘s teaser description below.

Watch Now: New Clip From Ghost Thriller ‘Haunter’ Starring Abigail Breslin
  |  @   |  

A new clip has been released for an upcoming movie titled Haunter, and you can check it out along with the first trailer if you missed it below.

The movie stars Abigail Breslin as a girl who, along with her family, does the same things each and every day…because she and her family are ghosts. Sorry, not big twist ending here. At least not in relation to their spectral nature. The girl and her family were murdered by a man who’s now back in the house he killed them in, also as a spirit, and she must work with another young girl who is currently living in the house to stop him.

You can check out the new clip and the trailer for Haunter below.

Blu-Ray Review: Scanners II: The New Order / Scanners III: The Takeover (Collector’s Edition)
  |  @   |  

Scanners II: The New Order
Blu-ray/DVD Combo
Director: Christian Duguay
Screenwriter: B.J. Nelson
Cast: David Hewlett, Deborah Raffin, Yvan Ponton, Isabelle Mejias, Raoul Trujillo, Tom Butler, Dorothée Berryman
Scream Factory
Rated R | 104 Minutes
Release Date: September 10, 2013

Directed by Christian Duguay (Screamers), Scanners II: The New Order is a direct-to-video sequel to David Cronenberg’s 1981 film, Scanners.

Written by B.J. Nelson (Lone Wolf McQuade), the story involves a crooked politician (Yvan Ponton) who schemes to gain control of a major city by manipulating Scanners (persons born with telepathic and telekinetic abilities) to do his bidding.

David Hewlett stars as David Kellum, a young veterinarian intern who discovers he is a Scanner, meaning he can read and control the minds of others and, if need be, make their heads explode. I’ll be honest, I’m not really sure why this movie exists – or what it’s even about – it just seems like the filmmakers focused on the amazing practical effects on display in Cronenberg’s film and decided to ratchet up the pulsating craniums and head explosions.

Spoiler Talk: Splice

Are you looking for something that will make you think that you have been dosed with a weird drug in your popcorn butter? Well Splice will do that without a doubt. If you are looking for an odd trip through the world of science fiction with a mix of morality and touch of suspense, than this is definitely your movie.

Adrien Brody plays his normal out there character, Clive, that we have all started to expect out of him. We also get Elsa, an odd almost sadistic character portrayed by Sarah Polley. Along with these two human characters we also get Dren, a heavily CGI creature played by Delphine Chaneac and Abigail Chu that will probably keep you thoroughly weirded out throughout the entire movie.

So if you are a fan of movies like Alien or Predator, than get ready for a very interesting ride through cloning and other ethical dilemmas. Science fiction will definitely not be revolutionized by this movie, but it is an interesting movie that gets the audience to ask a lot of questions of the world and themselves. Overall I had a good experience with this very rare quality sci-fi flick and would definitely recommend it to friends who don’t mind a very weird experience at the movies.

Well whether or not you are ready for it, it is that time again SPOILER TALK! The following are my spoiler-filled thoughts about the movie and you should definitely stop by the comment section and leave your thoughts as well.
