Here’s your Paranormal Pop Culture Update for the week of February 13th, 2015!

Television

Heroes? Check. Villains and superhuman powers? Check and check. NBC, and creator Tim Kring, are bringing an old favorite back – hopefully with a bang! Premiering in 2015 as a 13-episode mini-series, Heroes: Reborn will feature a stand-alone arc, with each season following a new cast of characters.

You can expect to see at least one familiar face though; Jack Coleman will be reprising his role in Heroes: Reborn as Noah Bennet (aka HRG). Zachary Levi (Chuck) will be joining the new cast; see a clip featuring them both (and a young girl controlling the Northern Lights) here:

The critically acclaimed first season of Heroes premiered in 2006, following a group of seemingly ordinary people who have developed superhuman abilities. With a cast of characters including Hayden Panattiere (Claire Bennet), Zachary Quinto (Sylar), and Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrelli), the first season of Heroes was a huge success. The popularity dwindled shortly after, however, and the show came to an end in 2010.

Due to the new (and hopefully improved) story line, NBC announced the airing of a prequel, titled Heroes Reborn: Digital Series. This will give fans a chance to get acquainted with new characters and plots. The show will air on NBC, Hulu, and video-on-demand.

Movies

Premiering February 13, 2015 is the well-reviewed (93% on Rotten Tomatoes) Dramedy, What We Do in the Shadows. From the creators of Flight of the Conchords, What We Do in the Shadows depicts the shenanigans of four vampire roommates attempting to live in a modern, human world. Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, who also star in it, directed the movie.

Out on DVD

If you’re not already terrified to go to the doctor’s office, you will be after watching this web series turned movie. Fear Clinic follows psychiatrist Dr. Andover (sans medical license) attempting to cure his patient’s fears. He hopes to do so by using his Fear Chamber, animating their fears in the form of terrifying hallucinations.

Starring Robert Englund as Dr. Andover, Fear Clinic made its premiere on October 22, 2014, and was released on DVD February 10, 2015.

Events

Would you like to walk the haunted halls of the hotel that inspired Steven King’s The Shining? Who wouldn’t? Strange Escapes will host Ghosts of the Stanley Hotel, April 10, 2015 – April 13, 2015 in Estes Park, CO. Speakers include Britt Griffith (Ghost Hunters), Paranormal Illusionist Aiden Sinclair, and world famous psychic Chip Coffey.

Built in 1909, the Stanley Hotel catered to the rich and famous, including the Emperor and Empress of Japan, RMS Titanic survivor Margaret Brown, and Theodore Roosevelt. Many reports have been made regarding ghost activity, primarily in the ballroom and guest bedrooms. Since then, popular television shows such as Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures have explored the famous hotel, further raising it’s status as a haunted hideaway.
