If you’ve been following this website for at least a couple of years by now, you know that I am pretty much 50/50 with my Metal and Rock items as I am with my Pop Culture focuses and to be completely honest, considering the amount of comic book, horror and science fiction stuff that is out there for me to talk about these days; it’s only going to pick up steam. So it was just over a week ago that I shared the teaser trailer for this show that I must admit was a very new thing for me and now we have a longer trailer to enjoy. The show is called “NOS4A2” and stars Zachary Quinto (Spock, Dr. Manhattan, more) and is a different take on the vampire tale that comes from an original story by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King). Let’s watch.
The Premise: “NOS4A2 follows Victoria “Vic” McQueen, a young working-class artist who discovers that she has a supernatural ability to track the seemingly immortal Charlie Manx. Manx feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland — a twisted Christmas Village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic must strive to defeat Manx and rescue his victims — without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.” (c/o Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve already mentioned, I felt that the first trailer looked interesting and this one raises my curiosity level tenfold. I’ve also said that with some of my locked in shows ending like “Gotham”, “IZombie” and “The Big Bang Theory”, I will most certainly have room for this on my DVR. I’d still love to read the story in the novel so if you have this on PDF please message me. Closing up I wonder what you readers think about the longer trailer and if you think you will be tuning in. Chime in down below when you have a moment.
