Back To Frank Black

A recent issue of Rue Morgue magazine had a nice little write up for the website BackToFrankBlack

If you haven't guessed already BlackToFrankBlack is a website not only devoted to the great and highly underrated series Millennium it is also trying to push for a revival for the series.

If you've never heard of
Millennium I can best explain it as the true spiritual and thematic successor to the original Kolchak The Night Stalker TV series.

A lot of people dismissed the show as being serial killer of the week or an
X-Files clone but it was never that. It was thoughtful, clever and 5 times as scary as the Hostel and Saw movies. I think it had a lot of influence on the shows you are seeing now, especially the CSI franchise.

If you've never seen the show it is getting a lot of airplay on the horror-centric Chiller channel and the DVDs are worth the price.

I for one would love to see the series come back but considering how badly
The Night Stalker remake was botched I have nightmare visions of Frank Black being played by Spencer Pratt.

The horror... the horror
