Fittingly, Syfy chose May the Fourth — notable for its punny connection with Star Wars Day, as in “May the Fourth Be With You” — to announce cameos for its upcoming installment in the Sharknado franchise, the equally punnily titled Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. The fourth Sharknado entry will debut on Syfy July 31, and has already announced some of its major casting, including returning favorites and new costars. You can see many of them below in the poster art for the film that was released today (like the movie’s title itself, the poster seems pretty reminiscent of the one for Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Looks like … Continue reading
In this 2-part finale, we find out who won Face Off season 10. But first our artists have to create 2 horror makeups for a short film. Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions is happy to be there and will be helping judge the final makeups. There’s a lot of thanking and happiness. Thank you, thank you, happy, happy. Over polite Face Off is my least favorite Face Off. These artists will be working with up & coming directors on a different take on the same story by Christopher Denholm, Hell Hole. Their movies will be set in this random oil field … Continue reading
Face Off season 10 is coming to a close with tonight’s episode. Will Melissa, Walter or Rob take the title? As we saw last week, Rob’s screen test ended with him having to re-sculpt everything. Yes, everything. He’s freaking out & I really can’t blame him. Melissa has a medium amount of work – re-doing a chest piece & her victim makeup. Walter appears to be sitting pretty with some minor edits & additions. I think I’m putting my bets on Rob – he’s been consistently strong over the entire season. If he can rally & get a crap ton … Continue reading
Among her many feature film and television credits, Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) seems to return time and again to the sci-fi and horror genres, and especially to aliens. Hurd notably collaborated with James Cameron to bring to life the nightmarish alien queen of Aliens (1986), and she thinks it’s time to make aliens scary again. That’s part of her stated goal as an executive producer of Syfy’s new series Hunters. Inspired by Whitley Strieber’s novel Alien Hunter, the series, featuring Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), follows a highly classified government organization known as the Exo-Terrorism Unit, which tracks and fights … Continue reading
Face Off season 10 episode 12 sends the final 4 to Skull Island. It’s a cross-promotion for some new theme park at Universal Orlando. Whatever. What follows is an extended commercial for this new theme park – opening Summer 2016! So the actual challenge is to take a creature from Skull Island: Reign of Kong and imagine how that creature would evolve into an intelligent species. Mel is second-guessing herself. Again. She comments on how this is the worst time to be second-guessing herself. But Mel, you’ve been doing it THE ENTIRE SEASON! Why stop now? Walter is freaking … Continue reading
Face Off Season 10 episode 11 takes us to a very specific war – The World of Warcraft. Melissa and Walter are seriously excited since they’re avid gamers. They’ve got to take one of the video game’s characters & create a real-life version. We’ve got goblins (Yvonne), the Draenel (Walter), the Pandaren, the Tauren (Rob), trolls (Mel) and the Worgen (Melissa can’t get there fast enough). Melissa can hardly contain herself. Mel, Rob and Yvonne don’t know much about World of Warcraft, so they’re especially freaked out. We’ll see if having knowledge of the game actually helps or hurts the … Continue reading
Channel Guide Magazine has received another exclusive preview clip of this week’s episode of Face Off. This week’s episode is The Art of Warcraft: The game World of Warcraft is making its way to the big screen this summer. In this clip, we get the setup of the challenge – the artists are being asked to create a character based on a World of Warcraft character. Melissa and Walter are super-stoked for this challenge. They both play the game & are geeking out. Mel and Rob on the other hand don’t play, so they’re a bit apprehensive. And Yvonne is … Continue reading
Face Off Season 10 episode 10 has the artists selecting an eyeball to create a cyclops character. To complete the look of these characters, the show has arranged for 6-7 foot tall models. Mel’s gonna need a ladder to work on her model. (Actually, most of them could’ve used a ladder. Mel just got the most crap about it.) This is a focus challenge, so it’s only a 2 day challenge. They’ve got to sculpt & mold their faces today. In this episode, we learn about eyeforms – a sphere with some screws in it that the artists use to … Continue reading
Channel Guide Magazine has received an exclusive preview clip of Face Off Season 10 episode 10. This week’s episode is Keep One Eye Open: The artists must create their own Cyclops monster, straight out of Greek mythology. Special Guest: Douglas Smith (Percy Jackson). In this clip, McKenzie introduces this week’s challenge. We’ve got a little mythology, a little action and a bunch of eyeballs. Yes, eyeballs. For inspiration. Can’t make a cyclops without an eyeball! Have a look for yourself: Tune In: Face Off airs Wednesdays at 9/8C on Syfy.
Face Off Season 10 episode 9 starts with a Norse mythology Foundation challenge. A selection of models have been decked out with magnificent wings. They are the Valkyrie – the winged warrior Goddesses. This Foundation has a guest judge – makeup artist Douglas Noe. He gives the artists a good piece of advice – will their Valkyrie tell a story without saying a word. A piece of advice that would work for any Face Off challenge. The winner of this Foundation challenge wins immunity for this week’s Spotlight challenge. Of course Robert sings some Wagner. He’s creating a Valkyrie. I … Continue reading
