E3 2017: Evil Waits Unseen In Hunt: Showdown Trailer

Dread Central - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 22:09

I love the Crysis games, so the E3 trailer for Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown gave me a huge geek boner.

Originally titled Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age, Hunt: Showdown is a multiplayer horror game where you’ll hunt monsters across Louisiana. Although there will be some shooting and action elements, it looks like a greater focus will be placed on stealth and suspense as you stalk your prey (or it stalks you).

Hunt: Showdown Teaser
When two hunters risk everything
And evil waits unseen
The hunter becomes the hunted

Dread Central - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 20:00

The first Beyond Good and Evil game was suitable for kids, so imagine my surprise at hearing the E3 trailer for the sequel drop the F-bomb about a million times. Swiss fucking chocolate indeed.

Ubisoft have now released a separate video introducing the team at Ubisoft Montpellier who are working on the game. Before you ask, we still haven’t seen any gameplay footage, although this new behind the scenes look does give us more of an insight as to what to expect from the sci-fi sequel. Rayman creator Michel Ancel returns to direct. You may also know him as the director of the videogame adaptation of Peter Jackson’s King Kong.

We don’t yet know when Beyond Good and Evil 2 will be released or for which systems. If you’re excited for this fucking game, let us know in the fucking comments below.

Beyond Good and Evil 2: E3 2017 Meet the Game Team | Behind the Scenes | Ubisoft [US]
Meet the Ubisoft Montpellier team and hear them describe their vision behind Beyond Good and Evil 2, and discover our community-focused live development initiative called the Space Monkey Program.

WORLD OF DEATH Ep. 88 – Miami Cannibal / Microwave

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 20:00

Bon Appétit Friends and Neighbors!

I hope you brought your appetite, because today we have a heaping double serving of films to satisfy your cravings for horror and gore. As a great man once said, “Food has always played a vital role in life’s rituals.” This episode of World of Death explores two films with an underlying culinary motif. Death is on the menu in heavy helpings with MIAMI CANNIBAL and MICROWAVE.

First up is a serving of fright, sliced right from the tenderloin of the world news headlines. Kyle Clement’s Miami Cannibal shows us the depths to which man will descend when fate brings two very different types of desperate individuals together, each seeking a bite to eat. One is looking for some take out, while the other hits the drive thru. With gross-out scenes rivaling the feast of Ishtar in “Blood Feast” and a soundtrack that is truly foreboding, this short teaches you why it is better to season your food with your salts, rather than eating them before you dine.

If home cooking is more your style, our second course is most certainly a meal fit for a Hungry Man. In Douglas Wicker’s Microwave we see how the best-laid plans can blow up in your face. Here the gore factor is cranked up to max heat when a college party gets out of hand. Expect the unexpected when Chelsea forgets to pay attention to her drink cup and Cheddar is playing bartender. This costume party takes a turn to the cold side when panic sets in, needless to say a penicillin allergy will be the least of their worries when Cheddar is cooking.

I hope you enjoy today’s specials. Share this with your friends and neighbors and remember… the menu changes twice a week!
– Eric Breitenbach

World of Death is the web series that fans of independent horror have been waiting for.  Featuring short horror films from all over the globe created by the largest variety of talent that a collection has ever been able to boast, WOD provides plenty of blood, guts, screams and laughs for all fans of the macabre.  And with episodes averaging around eight minutes in length, WOD is the perfect entertainment for a fan base constantly on the go.  Watch it anywhere, at any time, for FREE! New episodes premiere every Monday and Thursday at 10am CST.

E3 2017: God of War Presents a Saga Borne of Ash

Dread Central - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 19:08

Sony really is sparing no expense when it comes to marketing God of War. In addition to the stunning E3 trailer, they’ve also debuted the first installment in a promotional video series called “The Lost Pages of Norse Myth.” The first episode’s called “A Saga Borne of Ash,” and it really is something for both the auditory and visual senses to wallow in.

Director Cory Barlog also revealed the game’s box art for its release early next year on Twitter, and unsurprisingly, it’s a sight to behold. Kratos and his son Atreus really don’t mess around.

I’m gonna go ahead and predict that God of War will be the bestselling PS4 exclusive of 2018.

A Special God of War Performance – A Saga Borne of Ash | E3 2017
It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, he ventures into the brutal Norse wilds with his son Atreus, fighting to fulfill a deeply personal quest.

E3 2017: Destiny 2 Looks Just as Epic as You’d Expect

Dread Central - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 19:00

With Destiny 2 being one the biggest games of 2017 by far, the E3 trailer for Activision’s sci-fi shooter was just as epic as you’d expect.

Destiny 2 will once again feature the fast-paced online multiplayer action that made the original game such a gigantic success, and best of all, developer Bungie will once again include a story-driven campaign. It will be released on Xbox One and PS4 on September 6 2017, and unlike its predecessor, it will also be coming to PC on October 24. Pre-order here.

If you’re not ready to upgrade to Destiny 2 just yet, rest assured that Activision will be keeping the servers for the original Destiny online for the foreseeable future. Seeing as the combined marketing and production budgets of the original 2014 game came to an estimated combined total of an enormous $500 million, so I guess they’re gonna want to make as much money from it as possible before it goes offline.

Last month, millions of players witnessed the Destiny 2 gameplay premiere for the first time. Now, Ghaul has invaded E3. Meet the villain you’ll fight in Destiny 2, the most powerful enemy the Guardians have ever faced.

See a New Okja Featurette: Mirando Is F*cked!

Dread Central - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 18:53

Earlier today a new trailer was released for Netflix’s upcoming – and highly anticipated – new film Okja, and now we’re back with a featurette, which is titled “Mirando Is Fucked.”

In this video, the Animal Liberation Front vows to take down the Mirando Corporation. We’ll find out later this month if they’re successful!

Okja stars Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Byun Heebong, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, Giancarlo Esposito, Jake Gyllenhaal, and An Seo Hyun. It was directed by Bong Joon Ho (The Host, Snowpiercer). who co-wrote the script with Jon Ronson.

The film hits Netflix on June 28th.

Synopsis:
For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja—a massive animal and an even bigger friend—at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image-obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija’s dearest friend.

With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators, and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja… while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home.

Author Steve Alten Opens the Book on the Undisclosed

Dread Central - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 18:39

Best-selling author Steve Alten (Meg) has a new book on its way and we have your first look at what’s to come. Get ready to learn about The Undisclosed.

From the Press Release:
On Saturday December 14, 2013 at approximately 11:10 PM, NY Times best-selling author Steve Alten and his wife, Kim, were returning home from dinner and a movie. As they drove through their neighborhood, they noticed something bizarre moving toward them in the night sky – pale amber lights like nothing they had ever seen.

Says Alten: “There were eight to twelve of them flying in staggered pairs, approaching from the south less than a thousand feet (estimated) above Route 441/State Road 7 in Palm Beach County. They were far too silent and smooth to be helicopters and they were definitely not planes. As they came closer and passed almost directly overhead we could see the outline of a… well, their saucer-shaped vessels. By this time I had parked the car and Kim and I just stood and watched them, the two of us incredulous as they moved north through a cloudless night sky… until, pair by pair, they simply faded into the ether. Let me be clear here, they didn’t move out of range or shut off their lights or disappear into a cloud bank, they slipped out of existence. Neither one of us had ever seen a UFO before. Far from being scared, we felt exhilarated, like we had just been treated to something very special.”

Three days later, the couple drove to Miami Beach and had dinner with Dr. Steven M. Greer and his wife Emily – the first time the four had ever met. Considered by many to be the world’s foremost authority on UFOs and Extraterrestrials, Dr. Greer has prepared briefs for two sitting presidents, members of congress, the Head of the Joint Chiefs, and many world leaders. He also leads CE-5 expeditions – Human-instigated ET encounters which use group meditation and remote viewing techniques to vector in the Interstellars.

Steve Alten had contacted Dr. Greer after watching his 2001 Disclosure Project, a media event now viewed by hundreds of millions of people on YouTube that featured twenty eyewitnesses in the military, Intelligence community, FAA, and private defense sector who testified UFOs are not only real, but that there has been a major cover-up regarding free energy technologies, reverse-engineered from downed interstellar craft that could end global warming, poverty and famine, and change the world – only the fossil fuel industry and military industrial complex refuses to acknowledge their existence.

Alten had emailed Dr. Greer seeking permission to use excerpts of these testimonials in one of his novels. A year after the book was published he received an invitation to meet the Greers in Miami for dinner. Of course, the first thing the Altens spoke about was their UFO experience three nights earlier. Dr. Greer explained that these close encounters happen to many of the people he is going to meet for the first time; the ETs are “checking you out to make sure your motives are pure.” Greer discovered that advanced species communicate through consciousness; it was during meditation that he learned how to initiate his own close encounters.

The meeting in December led to a three-pronged game plan designed to alert the masses to these zero-point-energy technologies, along with details about a False Flag event set up by the military industrial complex intended to make it look like we’re being attacked by “evil aliens.”

‘Unacknowledged’ (the documentary) was released by The Orchard, a division of Sony on April 24, 2017. Unacknowledged (the book, edited by Steve Alten) was released by A&M Publishers on April 25, 2017. Undisclosed (a new thriller by Steve Alten) will be released on June 6, 2017. The story is about Adam Shariak, a veteran of the Iraq war, who is appointed Under Secretary of Defense in 2017 in order to penetrate a secret government, purposely black-shelving a clean, abundant energy system, reverse-engineered from downed UFOs. Both books and the movie name names, sites of secret black ops funded underground holding real UFOs and Alien Reproduction Vehicles, and details how a secret group, known as Majik, “murdered former CIA Director William Colby days before he was supposed to turn over a zero-point energy device and millions of dollars in seed money to Dr. Greer.”

LAFF 2017: Vertical Entertainment Nabs Never Here

Dread Central - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 18:14

You Were Never Here, the psychological thriller starring Mireille Enos from executive producers Zachary Quinto and Neal Dodson, has landed itself a new title and distribution before its premiere at this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival.

Per Deadline, Vertical Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to the newly titled Never Here, which is having its world premiere Sunday. Vertical is planning a day-and-date theatrical release in fourth quarter 2017, followed by a pay TV debut on Starz in early 2018.

Written and directed by Camille Thoman, Never Here centers on Enos’ Miranda, an installation artist who follows, photographs, and documents the lives of strangers to create her art. One night her secret lover witnesses a violent act from Miranda’s apartment window. To protect his identity, Miranda poses as the primary witness, making statements to the police about a crime she did not see, and she begins to create a new piece of work based on these circumstances. It sends Miranda into a maze of doubt and fear, blurring the lines between artist and subject. Sam Shepard, Goran Visnjic, Vincent Piazza, Nina Arianda, Ana Nogueira, and Desmin Borges co-star.

The film was produced by Wonderbar Productions in association with Before the Door Pictures. Julian Cautherley, Radium Cheung, Bronwyn Cornelius, Corey Moosa, Camille Thoman, and Elizabeth Yng-Wong produced; and Greg Ainsworth, Alvin Chau, Luke Daniels, Neal Dodson, Erika Hampson, Brandon K. Hogan, Subi Liang, Dan Milne, Ho-Cheung Pang, Alan Pao, Zachary Quinto, Wenke Sterns, and Alex Tong are executive producers.

The film has its world premiere in the U.S. Fiction Competition section Sunday, June 18th, at 6:15 PM at Arclight Cinema 4 in Culver City.

We’re thrilled to be partnering with Starz and the Never Here team to bring this incredibly visceral film to audiences,” Vertical co-president Rich Goldberg said. “Camille’s distinct vision threads an especially unique story that calls for active participation from every viewer.

More to come.

Snowpiercer Next Stop for Alison Wright and Benjamin Haigh

Dread Central - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 18:07

More casting news has arrived for TNT’s small screen series version of “Snowpiercer.” Joining the previously announced Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Mickey Sumner, Annalise Basso, Sasha Frolova, will be Alison Wright (pictured; “The Americans”) and Benjamin Haigh (The Conjuring 2).

Per Deadline Wright will play Lilah Anderson. She is careful and quiet but a pragmatic and independent thinker. Lilah lives with her husband and daughter in a fourth-class cabin and works in the train’s nail salon. Lilah doesn’t know how strong she is, but she’ll soon be forced to find out.

Haigh will portray Fergus McConnell, who lives in the back of the train amongst poverty. He helps his mother care for his sick father, and does his best to contribute to the daily struggles of life in this part of the train.

The “Snowpiercer” pilot, a futuristic thriller based on the acclaimed 2013 feature by Bong Joon-ho, is directed by Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson. It’s set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. It explores class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival.

Connelly plays Melanie Cavill, a First Class passenger who works as the Voice of the Train; Diggs plays Layton Well, a prisoner who becomes a reluctant participant in a struggle that could upend life on the train; Sumner will play Bess Till the thoughtful, empathetic, and savvy part of the train’s security force. Basso will play LJ Anderson, a quiet, diligent, Midwestern girl who lives with her parents in a fourth-class cabin and works in the greenhouse car. Poor but not as desperate as those that live in the tail of the train, LJ has made peace with her daily routine until a major event shakes up her world; Frolova will portray Pixi Aariak. Pixi is strange, mysterious, and inscrutable, a charismatic chameleon and probably inspired by the expression “still waters run deep.” She returns to the front of the train after a three-year sentence in the prison car and struggles to acclimate to her old life. You can’t take your eyes off of her. And you probably shouldn’t.

“Snowpiercer,” a co-production among Marty Adelstein/ITV Studios’ Tomorrow Studios, Turner’s Studio T, and CJ Entertainment, is exec produced by writer/showrunner Josh Friedman; director Derrickson; Tomorrow Studios’ Adelstein and Becky Clements; and the original film’s Bong Joon-ho, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun, and Dooho Choi.

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 17:12

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” – H.P. Lovecraft

Originally teased at E3 last year, developer Cyanide Studios’ Lovecraftian game Call of Cthulhu is finally headed our way soon, and today brings a brand new trailer out of this year’s E3.

[Video] The Horror Movies That Inspired ‘It Comes at Night’

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 16:11

Every movie from the present was in some way inspired by a movie from the past, and Trey Edward Shults’ contained thriller It Comes at Night is no exception.

Released last weekend by A24, the film is a tense, stripped to the bone take on the post-apocalypse, starring Joel Edgerton as a man determined to do whatever it takes to keep his family safe from, well, what’s killing everyone outside.

So which horror movies inspired Shults to make It Comes at Night? Shults himself revealed the four main ones in a featurette video that you can check out below!

In the film…

Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous domestic order he has established with his wife and son is put to the ultimate test with the arrival of a desperate young family seeking refuge.

Despite the best intentions of both families, paranoia and mistrust boil over as the horrors outside creep ever closer, awakening something hidden and monstrous within him as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul.

Riley Keough, Carmen Ejogo, Christopher Abbot, and Kelvin Harrison, Jr. star.

New ‘Teen Wolf’ Blu-rays Include Documentary and Interviews

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 15:20

On August 8, 2017, Scream Factory will present two classic films from the 1980’s, Teen Wolf (Collector’s Editon), starring Michael J Fox, and Teen Wolf Too (Collector’s Edition), starring Jason Bateman, the latter on Blu-ray for the first time. In addition, the Saturday morning kids show Teen Wolf: The Complete Animated Series will get a DVD release from Shout! Factory, on September 5!

Special Features on Teen Wolf (Collector’s Editon) include a new 2017 high-definition film transfer taken from the interpositive, a still gallery, the original theatrical trailer, and Never. Say. Die. The Story Of Teen Wolf – an exciting new comprehensive documentary about the making and legacy of the film, including brand-new interviews with writers Jeph Loeb and Matthew Weisman; producers Mark Levinson and Scott Rosenfelt; stars Susan Ursitti-Sheinberg, Jerry Levine, Matt Adler, Jim MacKrell and Troy Evans; basketball double Jeff Glosser; casting director Paul Ventura; production designer Chester Kaczenski; special effects make-up artist Jeff Dawn; and editor Lois Freeman-Fox.  With a runtime of 2 hours and 23 minutes, the documentary also delves into the controversial urban legend regarding the final scenes of the film.

He always wanted to be special … but he never expected this! Like all teenagers, Scott Howard (Michael J. Fox, the Back to the Future trilogy) is going through some … changes. But unlike the rest of the students at Beacontown High School, Scott’s changes include long hair that covers his entire body, claw-like fingernails, fangs, a heightened sense of smell, superhuman strength and the extraordinary ability to … play basketball? And that’s just the beginning.

Naturally, these uncanny new features turn this loveable loser into the most popular kid in school. But by embracing his newly minted popularity, has the Teen Wolf lost sight of what it truly means to be Scott Howard?

Special features on Teen Wolf Too (Collector’s Edition) include Working with the Wolf – an interview with director Christopher Leitch,Otherworldly – an interview with co-star Kim Darby, A Man of Great ‘Stiles’ – an interview with co-star Stuart Fratkin, Nerdy Girl Saves the Day – an interview with co-star Estee Chandler, A Wolf in ‘80s Clothing – a look at the wardrobe of Teen Wolf Too with costume designer Heidi Kaczenski, and a still gallery.

In Teen Wolf Too, “High school was easy, but college is a whole different animal! Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses) stars as Todd Howard, a Hamilton University freshman with a full athletic scholarship — only Todd has no idea why, since he’s far more interested in veterinary medicine than sports. But his boxing coach, Bobby Finstock, is very familiar with the Howard family secret and he’s hoping he can use it to his advantage. When the whole school — including Todd — finds out that he’s a werewolf with superhuman abilities, Todd’s popularity skyrockets and he becomes the big wolf on campus.

But is his fame a gift? Or a curse? And can he keep it from getting in the way of the relationships he has with his best friends and girlfriend? Perhaps a little guidance from his professor (Kim Darby, True Grit), who has a secret of her own, may help Todd learn the biggest lesson of all.

Horror’s Most Devastating Car Crashes!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 14:01

In action and drama films, the car crash is often used to bring shock, surprise, and intensity to otherwise light, entertaining fare. Horror, on the other hand, doesn’t need help in creating shock and surprise; when horror films do have a sizable budget, they frequently choose to spend it on makeup, monsters, and gore effects rather than the expensive set-ups required for physical stunts and car explosions.

But on those rare occasions when a horror film decides to portray a car crash, those scenes are infinitely more harrowing and effective than in other films. In honor of this weekend’s release of Cars 3 (which looks decidedly darker than its predecessors, by the way) we’ve put together a list of horror films with spectacular, disturbing car crash sequences…

THE DESCENT


Though it is remembered for many things, including great performances from an all-female lead cast, Neil Marshall’s claustrophobic survival film opened with (SPOILER ALERT) the tragic loss of one character’s husband and child. The scene is brief, horrifying, and the aftermath of it hangs over the entire film. Nearly a decade later, a car crash would be used for similar story purposes in 2014’s The Babadook.

INSIDE


The opening of Inside echoes the tragedy of both The Descent and The Babadook, but directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury take it one horrifying step further by having the survivor of the opening car crash be a pregnant woman. The film is filled with a series of disturbingly memorable horror set pieces, and one of them is the uncomfortably quiet opening moments in the aftermath of a wreck – a single living person sitting in the totaled wreck of a vehicle next to her dead spouse.

CRASH


There were several films whose car crashes would have put them on the list if not for the fact that they weren’t genuine horror films. John Frankenheimer’s work in Ronin is unmatched in its intensity, and Jonathan Mostow’s Breakdown is a brilliant post-Duel B-movie, but both fall more comfortably into thriller than horror. The only reason Crash received special consideration is because of its director, David Cronenberg, is an all-time horror great, and because the film itself borders on horror with its unflinching violence, haunting performances, and moody score.

ROAD GAMES


While Richard Franklin’s Road Games is mostly a highway-bound reinvention of Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window, the few sequences of car action and impact leave a definite impression. There is no doubt that the film spills into horror with its seediness, its garrote wire killer, and its performance from newly dubbed scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis. The eighteen-wheeler landing atop the car it is pursuing is a particular highlight.

DUEL


There is little left to be said about Steven Spielberg’s first directorial triumph, painstakingly crafted from a taut short story by Richard Matheson. Brilliant themes and skilled filmmaking aside, the whole film builds inexorably to one expectation: the car being pursued by an evil truck will finally turn around and face its pursuer. It does so, and in spectacular fashion, as the truck smashes through the flaming wreck of a car only to find itself teetering on the edge of a cliff… and there is nowhere to go but down.

THE CAR


It is appropriate for Elliot Silverstein’s The Car to follow Duel on this list, because it takes every story beat from Spielberg’s mainstream breakthrough, Jaws, and sets it on land with a driverless black car instead of a shark. There are several attack sequences in the film and more than a few car wrecks, but it is the over-the-top end sequence that puts it on this list. The local deputy lures the car into a quarry, sends it over a cliff, and then blows up the quarry and the car in an explosion sequence that seems nearly never-ending.

THE CARS THAT ATE PARIS


Before director Peter Weir became known in America for his lyrical horror films Picnic at Hanging Rock and The Last Wave, he made this offbeat, darkly comic film about a town whose livelihood is based on the intentional destruction of tourists’ cars. The plot and characters are outlandish, as is the car violence; there are only a handful of genuine car mayhem sequences, but those sequences are a wonder to behold.

MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE

No list of films about car wrecks would be complete without the inclusion of Stephen King’s only directorial work. Based on his own short story, the film chronicles the growing war between people and the machines that have suddenly come to violent life. The film has its unique pleasures, from the AC/DC score to a committed performance from character actor Pat Hingle, but its vehicle carnage is what makes it most memorable.

RACE WITH THE DEVIL


This film has an impressive road movie pedigree: directed by Jack Starrett (who made biker film Run, Angel, Run and episodes of Dukes of Hazzard) and starring Easy Rider’s Peter Fonda and Two-Lane Blacktop’s Warren Oates, Race with the Devil combines the road film with the cult film to great and creepy effect. The final act of the film is a prolonged chase scene where two couples are trying to escape a group of backwoods Satanists, and there are a number of fantastic crashes along the way.

STUCK


It is a remarkable enough feat to create a devastating car crash whose impact is felt emotionally through the whole film. More impressive than that is the film whose entire story is about the painful physical aftermath of an accident, played nearly in real time. Stuck is real-world horror from Stuart Gordon, known primarily for his decidedly unreal H.P. Lovecraft adaptations. Stephen Rea’s performance conveys deep suffering, and there are moments of body trauma that rival the best and creepiest of Cronenberg.

THE HITCHER


Everything in crazed hitchhiker John Ryder’s wake is left in ruins. That includes lives, souls, and more than a few cars and helicopters. Robert Harmon’s direction of the relentless script by Eric Red strips the horror film down to its bare essentials, but still somehow manages to paint on a massive canvas. The wide-open deserts isolate the protagonist and antagonist in an eternal struggle, and the explosions of the vehicles are just more fire in their own personal hell.

DEATH PROOF


For the first half hour of Quentin Tarantino’s half of Grindhouse, a viewer would be forgiven for being confused and possibly a little frustrated with the pace of the story about a group of young ladies laughing, talking, and drinking over a fairly uneventful night. But at the end of the night, the drive home spins the film in a new direction with breakneck speed. Stuntman Mike offers one young lady a ride home in his “death proof” car, and it leads to one of the most spectacularly executed sequences of action in a major theatrical release of the last two decades. Watching the crash multiple times from various angles, the brief moment of impact echoes numerous times on the screen, imprinting itself in the viewer’s mind forever.

FINAL DESTINATION 2


Based on sheer carnage alone, Final Destination 2 is one of the most devastating car crashes of any film, horror or otherwise. Seeking to top the brilliant action of the original film’s airplane accident, director and stunt coordinator took advantage of his first major feature opportunity to create a Rube Goldberg machine of violence and mayhem. A loose tree log and a cup of hot coffee lead to one of the deadliest event chains in film history. The highway sequence alone was enough to secure Ellis (who we sadly lost in 2013) another directing gig later in the franchise with 2009’s The Final Destination.

“American Horror Story: Roanoke” Coming to Halloween Horror Nights 2017

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/15/2017 - 13:48

Step into YOUR Roanoke nightmare.

We recently learned that a walk-through attraction based on The Shining is coming to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, and today brings the reveal that attendees will also come face-to-face with supernatural horrors inside a live experience set within the world of last year’s “American Horror Story: Roanoke.” 

Yes, the attraction is based entirely on last year’s season of the hit FX series, and HHN creative director John Murdy just explained why over on Twitter.

As you know, last year we did our first American Horror Story maze based on the seasons Murder House, Freak Show and Hotel,” he wrote. “This year we’ve decided to focus on a single season of AHS, the most recent season… Roanoke. The maze last year was extremely well received by our fans and the fans of AHS. But after last year I wanted to take a different approach.”

Each season of AHS is its own world. Each season has plenty of content for its own maze,” Murdy continued. “So we wanted to focus on a single season this time. Because we’re focusing on Roanoke this year, that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about Coven and Asylum. It means we’re saving them. I didn’t want to do them all in one maze this year… when you think about a season like Asylum… that can be its own maze in the future, etc. So that’s why we took the approach we did. We get to do an in-depth Roanoke maze hitting all the major scenes, characters, etc.

Check out the announce trailer below!
