With Teen Wolf‘s final New York Comic-Con panel in the books, it was a nostalgic and emotional weekend for the fans as well as the cast and crew of the MTV show. A devoted fan of the series myself, I jumped at the chance to sit down with stars Tyler Posey and Holland Roden as well as Executive Producer Jeff Davis (also the creator of Criminal Minds) and hear their perspectives personally. Cast members Linden Ashby, Melissa Ponzio, and Shelley Hennig were also in the room and are included in the photo ops below.

TNT has ordered a pilot episode for a TV series adaptation of Let the Right One In, the 2004 novel written by John Ajvide Lindqvist. The novel was adapted into the 2008 Swedish film of the same name directed by Tomas Alfredson, which then got an American remake in 2010 titled Let Me In directed by Matt Reeves.
The potential series was first set up at A&E after they beat out Showtime in a bidding war for the rights to the project, but those rights eventually reverted back to Tomorrow Studios.
Hello Geeks and Ghouls, Famous Monster here. Well, it’s finally October and you know what that means? Breast Cancer Awareness 5Ks? Good guess. Pumpkin Spice Lattes? Delicious, but no. Halloween? YES. Horror movies? DOUBLE YES!
Welcome to 31 Days of Horror, where I’ll cover two noteworthy horror films a day for the entirety of the month. That’s 31 Days of Horror and 62 Films perfect for watching on a cold, dark October night. Be sure to visit Geeks of Doom every day this month for a double-shot of chills and thrills!
Today’s double-shot includes Tod Browning‘s immortal 1931 classic, Dracula, and Tomas Alfredson‘s 2008 film, Let the Right One In.
Let the Right One In was one of the most critically acclaimed genre films of 2009 and it remains one of the most unique vampire stories of this era. The only issue is that it’s a foreign film, so yes American audiences have to read subtitles in order to enjoy the film. So what’s the solution? Obviously it’s to remake the film domestically. It’s not necessarily the right solution, but it’s Hollywood’s solution. It seems that redoing such a critically loved film would be a really daunting task. A small studio got the rights to the film and hired Matt Reeves, the man who brought us the big monster movie Cloverfield, to take on the job. Let Me In hit theaters last year with built-in hate from fans of the original film. Slowly though, as critics and fans saw the movie, the tide began to turn. Yes, it was a remake but it was an extremely well executed one with some ideas and perspective that made the film feel fresh and the story feel new again. It’s not fair to ask if this film is better or worse than the original: it’s different. The core story is the same, based on a novel, but the perspective of the director and the way the story is told is different in this film compared to the original.
After having some time to sit back and take the whole experience in, director Matt Reeves shares his thoughts with me on the film, the novel, the actors, and more just as the Let Me InDVD and Blu-ray release looms.
