31 Days of DEATH WALKS THE STREETS - Day 13: I could say that it's "funny" - but really, it's borderline uncomfortable how many elements of DWTS (seriously, a ton) have made their way into other "supernatural" forms of entertainment over the past decade or so, many of which I'm still finding out about - like "Abaddon," and probably because we're all pulling from similar historic influences. Yes, there have been many plays on the Biblical character of Abaddon over the past few thousand years, and in DEATH WALKS THE STREETS, we used that name to represent "Satan's One True Son" - a maniacal and more than off-kilter character who returned to Earth in 1955 and has been hunting something ever since.

Covered: THE HELL takes on NICKELBACK (Comedy)

Written by

NICKELBACK will forever be a platinum-selling whipping post for internet jockeys and snark-meisters that can't get enough shots fired at Chad Kroeger and Co. The latest bomb tossed in their sonic direction comes courtesy of THE HELL, who have covered the 2001 hit, "How You Remind Me," to new levels of perfection and glory. Watch and listen below...

WWE AmbassadorOn October 28, 2K Games will release the much-anticipated WWE 2K15, the latest game to feature the WWE Superstars and Divas in all of their digital glory. While the game hits just in-time for Halloween, fans won't have to wait quite as long to get a taste of the bangin' soundtrack - one curated by WWE Superstar John Cena, who also graces the cover of the game. Set for release on October 21st, pre-orders have just gone live on iTunes, with the full tracklisting revealed this morning on twitter by Cena himself. Take a look...

31 Days of DEATH WALKS THE STREETS - Day 12: There were plenty of weird occurrences when it came to the development of the DWTS project, and while they may have appeared strange from an outsider's perspective (we drew the ire of some other independent filmmakers along the way), from my seat it was even more overwhelmingly bizarre. How about getting nominated for awards based on a movie that hadn't even been shot yet? It happened... twice. While I'll discuss the second instance shortly, how did DEATH WALKS THE STREETS get nominated for an EMMY Award? One word: MySpace.

31 Days of DEATH WALKS THE STREETS - Day 11: When crafting the Halloween issue of the DWTS comic book, we worked in a lot of influences, most of which are rooted in why DWTS exists in the first place - a love of movies. In the Vetala Theatre scene, we featured it decorated for a major Halloween bash (one I will show in more detail later this month), and we hoped to capture a little of that "magic of the movies" - even just the vibe of being in a grand old theatre, with this moment right here, when Danielle first gets a glimpse inside the main auditorium, where a band would soon play, followed by some movies...

31 Days of DEATH WALKS THE STREETS - Day 10: You could say that "multi-tasking" was an understatement for some members of the DWTS development team, and there may be no better example than the work put in by designer Gregory Hill. While I've already shared some of his set designs here, Greg had also been working on ideas for the costume design of what should've been the first DEATH WALKS THE STREETS film, had it lensed as scheduled somewhere between 2005-2007. Actor/Musician Christian Kane, then fresh from the BUFFY spin-off ANGEL (he's since starred in LEVERAGE and soon will be seen in THE LIBRARIANS), had been cast in the lead role of Michael Labou, and you can see some of that influence in the designs I'm sharing below...
