Aleks Paunovic (Julius) will be Trevor and Rukiya Bernard (Doc) will be Taylor in the psychological thriller “92”. Set in Japan, the U.S., UK, France, Sweden, Serbia and the United Arab Emirates, the film tells the story of five characters who have joined forces in an effort to shut down a dead tech mogul’s most secret invention, a machine intended to solve all of mankind’s problems, but which could end all life on earth. The thriller was shot in eight different countries with director Rick Dugdale running the show through a virtual command centre. “I’m directing over Zoom,” Dugdale told Dana Gee of the Vancouver Sun. “It feels like we are standing on a film set. We have a cinematographer, we have a production designer, we have the actors and we have the writer and the editor on set as well.” The script by Cam Cannon relies heavily on virtual footage. “92” is expected to be released in the US sometime in July.

VAN HELSING – Season 4 Episode 11 – SPOILERS
Violet (Keeya King) and Ivory (Jennifer Cheon Garcia Warn) go to the place they believe Hansen is being held to free him from captivity, and stumble into an opportunity. Michaela is in the process of undergoing what Ivory calls a Setite ritual to remove her heart and store it in a safe place to prevent herself from being staked.
**Setites are followers of the Egyptian god Set (aka Suetekh), and outside of fiction (e.g. The Adrian Trilogy by Lyn Gibson and several tabletop and video games) there is no known connection between Set and vampires.
Once Michaela’s heart is removed, Violet and Ivory attack, and defeat Michaela and her minions in short order. (A stake through the heart apparently disables vampires but does not kill them. Violet stakes Michaela’s boxed heart and it causes her to stop fighting, making it easy for Ivory to behead her.) Continue reading →
VAN HELSING – Season 4 Episode 10 – SPOILERS
Somewhere near Denver, gladiatorial games are being held. Violet (Keeya King) and Julius (Aleks Paunovic) find one another as they wait to compete after being captured. Meanwhile, Axel (Jonathan Scarfe) has been driving around looking for Vanessa using that magic compass she gave him that points to the nearest Van Helsing. Instead of Vanessa, he finds Jack (Nicole Muñoz).
Jack tells Axel the story of Vanessa’s encounter with Dracula. Axel asks her “So you actually saw the Dark One?”, as though he had never quite believed in the existence of such a thing. Then Axel takes the opportunity to eulogize Vanessa: “She tried to do good, even if it meant doing some things that people couldn’t live with. She was fierce. She was determined. But she loved her daughter more than just about anything on the planet.” Jack responds: “I’m gonna get her back — me and my sister. And then together we’ll put an end to all of them.” Continue reading →
