FX’s “The Strain” offers unique take on the vampire genre

FX's "The Strain" offers unique take on the vampire genre

The catalyst for the beginning of the 13-part FX series The Strain is the arrival of a mysterious airplane, but co-executive producer Carlton Cuse, whose hit series Lost also involved a mystery about a plane, says that this was purely coincidental. “I wasn’t involved in the creation of that idea,” Cuse laughed during a recent interview, “but I think it’s a really good idea.” He’s right about that; the opening sequence of a plane somehow landing in New York City — with all of its passengers and crew seemingly dead — is a gripping, creepily atmospheric scenario, written and directed … Continue reading

“Sharknado 2″ highlights Syfy’s “Sharknado Week”

"Sharknado 2" highlights Syfy's "Sharknado Week"

Syfy’s original Sharknado was a social-media hit when it debuted last summer (though not necessarily a ratings smash, interestingly enough; more people seemed to snark about the film on Twitter than perhaps watched it). Naturally, then, there is now a sequel, which — after soliciting entries for a subtitle from fans via Twitter — Syfy and production company The Asylum have called, somewhat pedestrianly, Sharknado 2: The Second One. (A Sharknado 3 is also already in the works, set to debut in summer 2015, so Syfy is really going to ride this franchise until it jumps the shark, which may … Continue reading
