'I Know What You Did Last Summer' and 'Day of the Dead' stretch movie horror into series

Per chi ha guardato “So cosa hai fatto l'estate scorsa” o “La notte dei morti viventi” e ho pensato, “Vorrei che quel film fosse quattro volte più lungo,” Amazon e Syfy hanno delle serie per te, because it’s that time of year for scary shows, and as things currently stand in TV/streaming, anything worth doing is worth overdoing.

Shot in Hawaii, “I Know What You Didadapts Lois Duncan’s 1970s novel (and later 1997 film) per il “Pettegola” generazione, with an attractive and diverse cast of 20-somethings playing teenagers, whose complicated hook-up history adds several wrinkles to the slow-rolling crisis.
The action hinges on a fatal car accident on graduation nightthese movies don’t do much for the reputation of teen driversbefore strange and grisly signs start to emerge suggesting that nobody should become too attached to the characters. When someone mentions going to the cops, one member of the group shoots back, “We should have gone to the police a year ago,” but in horror, hindsight is always 20/20.
    Jumanji’sMadison Iseman has the most demanding role by playing very different twins, joined by an ensemble that consists of Bill Heck, Brianne Tju, Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore, Sebastian Amoruso, Fiona Rene, Cassie Beck, and Brooke Bloom.
      Amazon will kick off the series with four episodes, which is as much as critics have seen, with four more to follow over subsequent weeks.
        Piace “Pettegola,” every teen-driven concept seems destined for a reboot to reach new generations, but stretching out a concept this familiar almost feels like an endlessSummer.If you’re discriminating at all, in altre parole, I don’t know for certain but have a pretty good idea of what you won’t be watching this fall.
        A scene from the Syfy series 'Day of the Dead,' inspired by George A. Romero's movies.

        Day of the Dead,” nel frattempo, is described asan odeto George A. Romero’s zombie movies of yore, throwing together a small group trying to survive the early stages of the outbreak. Syfy dutifully provided all 10 Episodi, but it only took watching a few to decide that the world really doesn’t need another zombie show right now, even with “Il morto che cammina” (lentamente) lurching toward its conclusion.
          If you’re still reading, the action takes place in a small town, where something appears to have been unleashed at the local mine, and a mix of teens and adults try to survive what they’re reluctant to call azombie apocalypse.Various soapy subplots augment the ample gore, but let’s face it, with this kind of commodity, nobody is sticking around to see if the mayor finds out that her husband’s cheating on her.
          Mostly, the premieres of these showsand USA/Syfy’s recently launchedChucky” serie — offer a helpful reminder: whether it’s serial killers or slavering zombies, Hollywood never really gets tired of chewing up and spitting out old ideas.
            “So cosa hai fatto l'estate scorsa” anteprime ott. 15 on Amazon.
