NBC: We do Constantine right!

At least, I hope they do…

I am a fan of the “Constantine” movie (with Keanu Reeves) – it’s not a half bad supernatural action film. I also hate, Hate, HATE the “Constantine” movie with a burning undying hatred that people usually reserve for standing in line at the DMV that’s filled with screaming four year-olds who are screaming all the noises from “What Does The Fox Say?” Why the dichotomy? Because the movie itself isn’t bad: but it has very little in common with its source material: the Vertigo comic, Hellblazer.

And really, Shia LeBouf?

When news came out recently that the Peacock Network was going to take a stab at my favorite disreputable urban magician, I was skeptical; were we really going to get JC this time or was it round two with Keanu Constantine? Well, this photo over at Shock ‘Til You Drop has given me a little hope.

Yes, I know just getting his look right is a small thing, but it’s a start. Let’s see if they can pull it off.

Oh… and someone get that man a Silk Cut.

Dubbed, "TerrorScribe" by a former editor, Joe made the conversion to horror sometime in the mid-2000s. Little did he know he'd favored the genre all of his life. When not struggling with short stories, he provided genre film reviews for local entertainment sites and later genre sites who could suffer his cynical views.

It was that same cynicism - and some might say hubris - that lead him to have a brief flirtation with filmmaking. His first two efforts, "Annotated" and "Antes Que Seja Tarde (Before It's Too Late)" both premiered at a local H.P. Lovecraft film festival. A third short, "Survivor Girl" proved to be his undoing though plans are in the works to revived the cursed project.

Born and raised in Dallas, TX., Joe now resides in a small Texas town. Statistics say more dead bodies turn up in small towns that big cities... though he claims to have NOTHING to do with that.
