        • George Takei on The Terror

          Few actors have a history with genre like George Takei. With roles in series like The Twilight Zone and Star Trek, Takei's work has helped infuse the medium with everything from thoughtful commentary to dire warnings.

          His latest role as Yamato-san in AMC's upcoming The Terror: Infamy continues that tradition. The first season of The Terror took place in the arctic during the mid-19th century, while Infamy is set almost a century later, during the internment of Japanese citizens in the wake of Pearl Harbor.

          Speaking with SYFY WIRE ahead of an advance screening of Infamy's series premiere at the ATX Television Fest in Austin, Texas, today, Takei said that the series is reminiscent of another aspect of what genre is capable of.

          "Genre can stereotype," Takei explained. "That's been constantly repeated from the beginning of, well, the media. Whether it's newspapers or radio or movies, television or the stage, Asians and Asian-Americans have always been characterized by unattractive stereotypes. The quiet servant, the buffoon, the comic, or the villain — either villainous soldiers or Fu Manchus. Because the media has been so powerful in selling these stereotypes, it was easy for the government, when they got stampeded by war hysteria, to incarcerate us."

          Given that Takei himself spent the ages of 5 to 8 incarcerated alongside his family in an internment camp, he was initially hired as a consultant for Infamy. Before long, incoming showrunner Alexander Woo realized that he needed a way to carve out a role for the veteran actor and activist.

          Thus came the character of Yamato-san, a community elder (and tuna-boxing champion) who carries a sense of old-world tradition about him. Which in the world of The Terror includes the very prominent influence of ancient Japanese ghost stories.

          "It's a very timeless series," said Takei. "It riffs on the horror stories that we tell, but it's also a chapter of authentic American history, fused with the ancient ghost stories of Japan, Kaidan, and carrying a lesson for us today — because it's being repeated time and time again."

          The Terror: Infamy premieres Aug. 12, 2019, on AMC.

            • The Terror: Infamy Season 2 Trailer


              • We’ve been super excited for Shudder’s Creepshow relaunch ever since it was first announced. Today we got our first look at the practical heavy reimagining of the classic Stephen King and George Romero cult movies with a super fun trailer from the horror streaming service.

                The original Creepshow movies were groundbreaking anthology films that featured massive cult stars (like Lesley Nielsen, Ed Harris, and Tom Savini) in short horror stories that always had a chilling twist. The new Shudder series takes that beloved premise and introduces 12 episodes that look to be filled with practical effects magic and creepy tales to make us shiver.

                The trailer showcases some serious genre heavyweights David Arquette (Scream) and Tobin Bell (Saw) who join other returning horror icons like The Fog’s Adrienne Barbeau. The behind the camera talent is just as impressive with The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero helming the series.

                Shudder also revealed the names and creative teams behind the two episodes that will debut on the show’s premiere episode: “Gray Matter,” based on a story by Stephen King, will be directed by Nicotero and adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi. That tale will be paired with “House of the Head,” which will be written by Josh Malerman and directed by John Harrison, who actually worked on the original Creepshow movies!

                Fans at SDCC will be able to see some of the cast and crew at a panel on Friday, July 19, which will see Nicotero and Barbeau joined by Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Lucifer), and DJ Qualls (The Man in the High Castle, Supernatural). If you can’t make that panel make sure that you keep your eyes peeled here for some super cool Creepshow coverage coming soon!
