ArieScope Pictures has released the the full uncut Christmas episode of Holliston in its entirety for free on its website until midnight on Christmas Day (December, 25th). This includes a nearly five-minute scene between that according to ArieScope: “The infamous “hallway scene” between “Adam” and “Corri” that was removed for air due to the network feeling it was “too emotional for the tone that they wanted the series to have. Though the “hallway scene” was always part of the original script, actors Adam Green and Corri English chose to discard the written words and completely improvise the scene on the day of shooting. The scene is considered by many fans to be a defining moment in Holliston becoming the show that it is and one of the most important moments of the series (right up there with “Oderus’” final speech to “Adam” in the Season 2 finale).”
The show originally aired in 2012 & 2013 on the now-defunct FEARnet horror network, which closed up shop in 2014. In 2015, The Movie Crypt podcast, hosted by Green & Lynch, stated that Holliston would return in 2016 on GeekNation, but it never did. To make matters worse, the actor who played one of the show’s main characters, Dave Brockie, has since died. However, the ArieScope post about The Holliston Christmas Special included this very interesting statement regarding season 3:
“While there is still no official information we can share about Season 3 … don’t give up hope just yet. Between the one-two punch of a cast member’s tragic death and the series’ home network being dissolved in a corporate merger in 2014, Holliston has suffered more tragedies than the average sit-com could survive… but Holliston isn’t your average sit-com, this isn’t your average cast, and these aren’t your average fans. Hang in there with us.”
Holliston was created by Adam Green and starred Green, fellow filmmaker Joe Lynch, Laura Ortiz, Corri English, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, and the late Dave Brockie AKA “Oderus Urungus” from GWAR, along with a cavalcade of celebrity guests including Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder, Derek Mears, Tony Todd, Danielle Harris, John Landis, James Gunn, Sid Haig, David Naughton, Seth Green, and Brian Posehn. The first two seasons are now available on Blu-ray for just $20 per season:
Green & Lynch recently completed the third annual The Movie Crypt 48-hour live podcast marathon, which we reported on last week, where they raised a staggering $36,000 for the Save A Yorkie Rescue of Milton, PA.
