Nickelodeon All That Reboot: “For Kids, By Kids”

If you were a 90’s kid, chances are you were parked on your ‘orange’ couch and watching SNICK on Nickelodeon. Apart of the Saturday night lineup was All That. The kids comedy show that introduced memorable sketches such as Vital Information, Good Burger, Repairman, Loud Librarian and many more. The show helped launch the careers of Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, who will now be serving as Executive Producers for the reboot. It may seem like Hollywood is rebooting everything these days, but I’m glad for a kids comedy show that I know I can sit down with my 7 year old and have a good laugh together. Nickelodeon recently released a new short video depicting the new cast members and what skills they will be bringing to the show.

As soon as the video hit the airwaves, adults took to social media platforms and expressed their distaste for the reboot calling it ‘not funny or original’. Nickelodeons Twitter account hit back against the haters and let them know that the new show is made by kids and is for kids. I can understand that having your favorite childhood movies and tv shows redone can be a kick in the nostalgia. But if you were to go back and watch some of those programs as an adult, you will definitely see that it was probably more hilarious and good to you as a kid.

I for one am excited for the new series to drop and I will be camped out on my now brown leather couch, waiting for it to come on my television screen. The new All That premiers June 15th 8:30pm ET on Nickelodeon and will feature musical guest The Jonas Brothers and a few cast members from the original show.


Bruce Campbell, host of the new Ripley’s Believe It Or Not

Believe it or not, the new Travel Channel reboot of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not will be at next month’s San Diego Comic Con with a panel.

Host Bruce Campbell recently spoke to Monsters and Critics, and confirmed that they’ll be hosting a panel for the series on Saturday, July 20.

“By the way, we’re going to try to drag some of these folks to conventions,” Campbell told Monsters and Critics. “Because I told them, I said, ‘Look, this is what I do. You’ve got to…’ How many boring movie panels have you witnessed, you know? Oh, it was very hot that day. Yes, my suit didn’t fit right. And we thought that was funny. ‘No, let’s get a panel of Ripley’s participants. I’ll give you a panel.’ So we’re going to San Diego Comic-Con. We have a panel coming on that Saturday.”

Other than Campbell, there is no word yet on what amazing and weird guests will be appearing on stage, but it should be a fun time.

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not promises to introduce viewers to “some of the most amazing people on the planet” — whether that’s an expert card-thrower, a high-wire junky, or a contortionist.” It premieres on The Travel Channel on June 9th.


The newest trailer for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, the new film from director Andre Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe) and producer Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) dropped today. The film is based on a series of popular short horror stories by Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell.


Here’s the official synopsis:

It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind…but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is the small town of Mill Valley where for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time—stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying home.

Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark will be released by CBS Films, Lionsgate, and eOne on August 9, 2019.

The popularity of the short story collection combined with the talented director/producer combo makes this film one to keep an eye on.


Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, announced additional names for its upcoming Creepshow anthology series. Joining the cast are acclaimed actors David Arquette (Screamfranchise), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Lucifer) and Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Stan Against Evil). Shudder also revealed the three new Creepshow stories in which they will appear, and announced Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, 1990’s Night of the Living Dead) as the director Joe Hill’s “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain” (adapted by Jason Ciaramella), marking Savini’s return to the beloved franchise.


“There wouldn’t be a Creepshow without Tom Savini,” said showrunner Greg Nicotero. “His mark on the horror industry and unflinching approach to Special Effects Make-up did more for the genre than anything since the invention of fake blood. Tom has always been a visionary and his love of cinema and making movies is felt in every frame of his episode. I’m honored to have my friend as a big part of the team.”


“Having done all the creepy, monstrous, gory effects in the original movie, I am indescribably overjoyed to come full circle now directing an episode of this Creepshow series,” said Savini. 

Tom Savini


David Arquette will star in “Times is Tough in Musky Holler,” directed by John Harrison and written by John Skipp and Dori Miller based on their short story. Leaders who once controlled a town through fear and intimidation get a taste of their own medicine.


Tricia Helfer will star in “Lydia Layne’s Better Half,” written by John Harrison (based on a story by Harrison and Greg Nicotero) and directed by Roxanne Benjamin (Body at Brighton Rock). A powerful woman denies a promotion to her protégée and lover but fails to anticipate the fallout.


Benjamin will also direct “Skincrawlers,” starring Dana Gould, and written by Paul Dini and Stephen Langford. A man considers a miraculous new treatment for weight loss that turns out to have unexpected complications.


Nicotero added: “Part of what makes Creepshow fun is getting a chance to work with some terrific actors who also love the genre. It adds that level of excitement when we get to share our collective love for horror in this fashion. David and I have worked together before and Dana Gould might be my equal in terms of all things horror. Then bring Tricia into the mix and Creepshow just shines. Getting to watch her exude power, grace and intensity in a story I wrote can’t be matched.”

Greg Nicotero, producer of Shudder’s new Creepshow series


The new cast join Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito and Tobin Bell, previously announced for the Stephen King story “Gray Matter,” adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi (The Commuter) and directed by Nicotero (The Walking Dead).


Creepshow is based on the iconic 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. The DNA of the original movie is firmly embedded in the new series: in addition to Savini’s and Barbeau’s return to the franchise, Joe Hill played comic-book-loving “Billy” in the original film’s wrap-around segments; John Harrison, who was 1st Assistant Director on 1982’s Creepshow and composed its iconic theme, is back to direct segments of the series; and executive producer and director Greg Nicotero visited the first film’s set as a teenager, and contributed make-up effects to its 1987 follow-up, Creepshow 2.


Shudder has now announced eleven of the twelve segments that will make up Creepshow’s six-episode season. Previously announced segments include adaptations of “Gray Matter” by Stephen King, “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill, “The Companion” by Joe R. Lansdale, Kasey Lansdale & Keith Lansdale, “The House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (Bird Box), “The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman and “All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones, along with the original stories “Night of the Paw” by John Esposito and “Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab. The final story and additional casting will be announced soon. 


Shudder’s Creepshow is produced by the Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment: Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, and Eric Woods are executive producers for the Cartel; Greg Nicotero and Brian Witten are executive producers for Monster Agency Productions; Robert Dudelson, James Dudelson and Jordan Kizwani are executive producers for Taurus Entertainment; Russell Binder is executive producer and Marc Mostman co-executive producer for Striker Entertainment. Creepshow will premiere on Shudder later this year.
