Ash vs Evil Dead returns tonight with the first of ten new episodes and the biggest change to the series is the introduction of Ash's daughter, played by Arielle Carver-O'Neill. Ahead of the Season 3 premiere, I caught up with Arielle to learn more about her joining the cast, the series converting her into a horror fan, and getting blood-drenched during her first days on set:
Lindsay Farris joins the cast of Ash vs Evil Dead in the new season as Dalton, leader of the modern-day Knights of Sumeria.

While Ash was a Deadite-killing expert by the start of the Ash vs Evil Dead TV series, Kelly is in a very different place from when the series first began, and is now a blood-soaked veteran Deadite slayer in her own right.

With backers that include Eli Roth and Jason Blum, Crypt TV is building a brand geared toward the future of content consumption, and I caught up with Crypt TV's CEO & founder Jack Davis to learn more about the success and future of his multi-media horror platform:
For many, last year was filled with ups and downs, but one definite highlight was the varied and impressive output of genre entertainment. We’re in a golden age of horror in which we’re seeing incredible works of art in multiple mediums, and there’s so much out there to be thankful for.
This past summer, I was invited to Dallas for the annual QuakeCon gaming celebration, and while there, I entered the haunted city of Union in an immersive demo for the new video game The Evil Within 2. After surviving the demo, I had the chance to sit down with some of the creative team from The Evil Within 2, including Tango Gameworks Studio Director Shinji Mikami (also known for his work on the Resident Evil video game series), Game Director John Johanas, and Writer Trent Haaga (Cheap Thrills, Deadgirl).

I never thought I'd see the day when we got a sequel to Blade Runner, let alone a VR and immersive experience at Comic-Con. For those of you who attended the pop culture celebration in San Diego and are obsessed with Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi masterpiece—and I know there are many of you—I hope you didn't miss out on the chance to step into the world of Blade Runner in Alcon Entertainment and Johnnie Walker's special event to promote the upcoming release of Warner Bros.'

The Overlook Film Festival is something special. Easily the best genre event I’ve attended, Overlook was created for horror fans by a team whose passion for the genre runs deep. Not only have they scoured the globe for the latest horror movies that fans will get excited for, but they’ve also worked with some of the most creative people in performance art and immersive entertainment to offer attendees one-of-a-kind experiences.
The immersive game is THE reason why The Overlook Film Festival is a can’t-miss event. There are many film festivals, but there’s only one that included a weekend filed with murders, clues, a witch hunt, and me being gagged, zip-tied, and accused of being a serial killer.
At this past weekend’s Overlook Film Festival, Roger Corman was on hand to receive the “Master of Horror Award,” presented by Mick Garris. There are few people in the movie industry that have had the long lasting effect that Roger Corman has, and I was honored to speak with him during the festival to get his thoughts on modern filmmaking, seeing his older films digitally restored, and he also gave his advice to young filmmakers looking to stand out from the pack.
