MTV has a new show coming out – it’s called Death Valley, and it follows a motley crew of paranormal investigators as they contend with all manner of supernatural happenings: Ghosts, goblins, that sort of thing. And as the following five characters demonstrate, there’s no shortage of fiendishly evil characters who need to be locked up. In honor of Death Valley (which premieres tonight at 10:30/9:30c), here are five paranormal villains who need to be taken into custody.


Freddy Krueger

One of the most infamous villains in movie history, Freddy Krueger’s metier is haunting you while you sleep, invading your dreams, murdering you in your dream, and causing you to die in real life. It might be kind of tough to incarcerate him, since he’s deceased and all, and he’s already survived several Nightmare on Elm Street movies, including one rumble with Jason. But it’s indisputable that the streets would be a little safer with him locked away.

Count Orlok

Consider this nasty-looking cat a stand-in for every evil vampire in movies. After all, he came before Bela Lugosi’s Count Dracula, the shit-kicking vampires in Near Dark, and the shirtless glittery vampires in the Twilight movies. Unlike those guys, who use their vampire powers to make themselves suave and attractive, the undateable Count Orlok was proud to let his freak flag fly. He’s still a threat, though, as all powerful and bloodthirsty vampires tend to be. Lock ‘im up!

Unnamed Demon in Paranormal Activity

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the villain in a movie with “paranormal” right in the title. This guy’s crimes aren’t quite at the same large scale of the last two villains, but he could definitely benefit from some paranormal 3 hots and a cot all the same. And with the Paranormal Activity sequels becoming the next Saw series, this demon’s probably going to be on the warpath for years to come.

Pazuzu

The name might not be familiar to you, so here’s a refresher: It’s the demon who causes all that wacky mischief in The Exorcist and its assorted off-shoots. His crimes don’t need to be recounted here, but suffice it to say that taking the literal embodiment of evil into custody would be a notch on any law enforcement professional’s belt.

Lord Voldemort

Voldemort, as notorious paranormal villains go, is pretty dangerous. So dangerous, in fact, that most in the paranormal law enforcement field are too afraid to even speak his name. Now, a lot of you are probably thinking that Voldemort was vanquished in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, to which I say: ‘pffft.’ That guy’s probably hiding out in Brazil until the heat dies down. He needs to be caught, put in jail, and made to think about his actions.

With all these vampires, werewolves, and zombies invading television, it’s only natural that someone would need to police them. And also punch them through the head. That’s exactly what the stars of MTV’s Death Valley do.

The new scripted series takes a page out of the COPS handbook and sends a camera crew to ride along with the law officers of the San Fernando Valley. In this case, the San Fernando Valley has been overrun by a new minority for the past year — monsters and the undead. This gory preview shows stars Tania Raymonde (Lost), Brian Callen (MADtv), and Caity Lotz (Mad Men) on the beat and it looks pretty intense. Looks pretty violent but still nowhere near as violent as that episode of COPS where the naked, bloody guy punched his way through a fence to escape. We can only assume that he was on his way to go kill Superman. (MTV)

Two New MTV Shows Herald The “Death” Of Music Videos http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/two-new-mtv-shows-herald-the-death-of-music-videos/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/two-new-mtv-shows-herald-the-death-of-music-videos/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 MTV is continuing to diversify its creative landscape (translation: showing less Ke$ha videos) by picking up two new scripted programs. Following the lead set by nerd-with-massive-hog dramedy "The Hard Times Of RJ Berger," the network has greenlit "That Girl" and "Death Valley." "That Girl" tells the story of a high school student who becomes popular after an accident leads her classmates to believe she attempted suicide. "Death Valley" is a feaux-documentary series starring Ben Linus's hot daughter from "Lost" Tania Raymonde as a monster hunter in the San Fernando Valley. Think of it as somthing like "Buffy" meets "Cops." Or like "Ghosthunters" but with actual plots and events happening. (THR)
