Christopher Heyerdahl as the Chapman’s creepy neighbour Edmund in Episode 2.7 of PROJECT BLUE BOOK
Christopher Heyerdahl (Sam) will be Hiram Epps in seven episodes of the Amazon horror series THEM:COVENANT. Set in 1953, the show follows a couple (Lucky and Henry Emory, played by Deborah Ayorinde and Ashley Thomas) who decide to move their family from North Carolina to an all-white neighbourhood in Los Angeles. Once they arrive, their new home quickly becomes a spot overrun with evil forces both mundane and supernatural. Allison Pill (STAR TREK: PICARD) and Michael J Harney (PROJECT BLUE BOOK) are also in the cast. The show had its first table read last October, but there is no word yet on a release date.
Matreya Scarrwener (Brittney in “No ‘I’ in Team“) stars as Stacey, a troubled teenage girl who downloads an app called ‘Shall We Play?’ (also the name of the film) which enables her to have conversations with the dead (or maybe she only thinks it does). In the beginning, Stacey uses it to converse with dead relatives for emotional support, but the app soon takes over her life completely. SHALL WE PLAY? is director Ann Forry‘s first feature. The film’s website says that it is “Coming Soon”, but, though IMDB suggests it will be released later this month, no specific date has been announced. A trailer is available on YouTube.

Sam (Christopher Heyerdahl) wants to kill both Lily (Julie Lynn Mortensen) and Vanessa, but The Oracle steps in, and tells him he must leave one of them alive. (It seems they need to perform a ritual involving a live Van Helsing, the blood of the Dark One, and a five pointed black star.) Sam does not take orders well, but The Oracle tosses him against a wall (she has telekinetic powers), and when that just makes him more combative, she tries a softer approach, explaining that long ago she had been drawn to his darkness and had chosen him for greater things.

In “Outside World“, Vanessa made Mohamed human again and said: “At least I saved one person in all of this.” It turns out that is not so. Sam finds Mohamed and (probably at the urging of The Oracle) takes him to Renfield House, where Scarlett and Axel have met up with Vanessa in their quest to find and kill the Fourth Elder. What transpires with all these folks in the same room is complicated, but after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, Sam (Christopher Heyerdahl) kills Mohamed, and Vanessa kills Scarlett. Mohamed dies because to become an Elder, Sam had to kill the one that he loves to completely detach himself from humanity. Continue reading →
