Die So Fluid “Landslides” Music Video Premiere (Exclusive)

bloody disgusting - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 09:00

Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with London rock band Die So Fluid to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for “Landslides”, which comes from the band’s recent release The Opposite Of Light!

Vocalist/bassist Grog states:

‘Landslides’ is a track from the darker, more introspective side of our new album ‘The Opposites Of Light’. The song is about intense desire and loyalty. The video is an emotional and psychedelic trip into a shamanic desert scene highlighting the dream-time qualities of the song. The lyrics were partly inspired by my fascination with Carlos Castaneda, a kind of cult leader who wrote books about shamanism. Narrated in first person, they have sold millions but some critics say they’re works of fiction. He had three female followers who lived with him, changed their names, and cut off ties to family and the outside world. They mysteriously disappeared after his own death. The remains of one of these women was found in Death Valley near where her abandoned car had been discovered. I directed this video myself and used a Go Pro camera that a very generous Die So Fluid fan gave me. We filmed it at the magical Vasquez Rocks where Star Trek was shot, I’m lucky to live nearby. I just let the ancient land speak to me and the visions flow.

You can snag The Opposite Of Light via the band’s Bandcamp.

Die So Fluid online:

Tour dates:
3- Yo-Talo Tampere
4- Henry’s Pub, Kuopio

Exclusive New NSFW Killers Clip Gets Brutal

Dread Central - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 07:00

The Mo Brothers' latest blood-soaked slice of mayhem, Killers, hits UK DVD and Blu-ray on September 1; and to celebrate we have a rather gruesome new NSFW clip to get the fires burning. Seriously – this one brings the pain!

Nomura is a good looking and stylish man in his early thirties who lives a successful life in Tokyo, Japan. Girls are drawn to him, something he uses to his advantage as none of them realise the sinister truth behind the clean-cut façade.

Nomura has been leaving a legacy of violent murders that he immortalises through video clips posted on a public video website. He thrives off of the fact that millions are witnessing his work through the virally spread videos.

Thousands of miles away from him, in a whole different world, lives Bayu, a disgraced investigative journalist living in a violent and unstable Jakarta, Indonesia. As Bayu’s life is hit by the nadir of failures, Nomura’s videos trigger his dark side as he starts to record his own brand of “justified” killings. Nomura’s seemingly confident and controlled charm starts to peel when his ego is wounded by the fact that Bayu’s videos have reached a significant numbers of followers that could rival his own.

Complicating matters further is Nomura’s bizarre attraction towards a traumatised young florist Hisae. Bayu himself starts to sink deeper into a spiral of violence; obsessed with bringing down one of the country’s biggest and most corrupt politicians, but during his bloody rampage he doesn’t realise the repercussions towards his young daughter, Elly.

When the rivalry between Nomura and Bayu becomes an uncontrollable psychosis, the two of them must face each other in one of the most exhilarating film finales in years.

Sharlto Copley and Michelle Forbes Have Powers!

Dread Central - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 22:32

More casting news has arrived for the Sony PlayStation Network adaptation of the Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming-created comic series Powers as Sharlto Copley and Michelle Forbes have signed on for active duty!

Variety reports that Copley (pictured) will play Christian Walker, described as a dapper and charismatic character with a darkness and violence right at the surface but with a sense of buried integrity. Walker has the dissolute air of a faded rock star and the body of a battered heavyweight.

Once possessed of super-powers, Walker lost those abilities in a battle with a super-human mass killer. A faded hero, he’s now a detective who works with law enforcement, using his singular expertise to investigate crimes in the Powers community.

Forbes ("True Blood," "The Killing") will play Retro Girl, the undisputed superstar of the Powers community. An icon of justice, selflessness, and business acumen, she has a cool, hard exterior with a fire right below the surface. Her willingness to put herself at risk for the good of others is matched only by her ability to manage her globe-spanning personal brand.

David Slade will direct the first two episodes of the live-action series from scripts by Charlie Huston. Susan Heyward ("The Following") has been tapped as the female lead with Max Fowler ("The Killing") and Adam Godley ("Breaking Bad") also cast.

Combining the genres of superhero fantasy, crime noir, and police procedural, "Powers," produced by Sony Pictures TV, is set in a world full of people with superhuman abilities and where all of those powers are just another catalyst for mayhem and murder.

It follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Heyward), who are assigned to protect humans like us and investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities, referred to as "Powers," who glide through the sky on lightning bolts and fire and who clash above cities in epic battle, oblivious to the mortals below. Pilgrim is described as equal parts beauty and sarcasm, a wunderkind detective with edgy style.

Fowler will play Krispin Stockley, the son of Walker’s murdered partner, a disaffected teen still struggling with the death of his father at the hand of a rogue Power, which starts him on a dark journey that will warp him both physically and emotionally. Godley will play Captain Cross, the solid steel in a frail frame captain of the Powers division, bookish, respectful, and loyal; but he may harbor a secret agenda that could lead his beloved department into a full-fledged conspiracy.

Bendis, Oeming, and Michael Dinner executive produce "Powers" with Huston and Remi Aubuchon ("Falling Skies") along with Circle of Confusion’s David Engel, David Alpert, and Lawrence Mattis. Huston and Aubuchon will serve as showrunners. SPT will sell internationally.

Milla Jovovich Pregnant; Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Delayed

Dread Central - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 20:27

Breaking news is coming in from Milla Jovovich herself regarding the tentatively titled Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. The film has been delayed, but it's for one of the best possible reasons! Read on!

According to Jovovich on Facebook:

"Happy Monday everyone! This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town, South Africa to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But… My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!!

So after a lot of discussion, we thought it would be in everyone’s best interest to wait till the baby is born before we set out to try and tackle an RE movie. Between the stunt work and what will become my ever-expanding belly, we didn’t think pregnancy and zombie killing are the best combo! Lol! I imagine the only thing I’ll be killing in the near future is an endless supply of cupcakes. Yikes!

In all seriousness though, we want to make the best movie possible and that would be extremely difficult, to say the least, in my present condition. I would like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has been working so hard on the movie in South Africa already and we are so looking forward to working with you all next summer. And when we arrive, it will hopefully be with the newest member of our little family! YAY!

Before I go, i want to also send one more HUGE thank you out to all my amazing fans who have been so patient waiting for the next installment of the RE franchise! YOU ROCK! Thanks so much for understanding everyone! All the best!"

Whatever it's called, Resident Evil 6 will be written and directed by Anderson, and Milla Jovovich will be returning as Alice. It could potentially be the final film in the franchise, which Anderson plans on neatly wrapping up.

More as we learn it!

Marvel Moves George A Romero’s “Empire of the Dead” Into Act Two!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 18:31

As I sit here having the Day of the Dead soundtrack wash over me I can’t help but reflect back on the profound impact George A Romero has had on me. His movies were foundational to my love of horror, and he really captured an entire generation of people with his social commentary hidden within flesh eating undead maniacs. His work is quite something to behold, and now his partnership with Marvel has the master of the undead penning a new series “Empire of the Dead: Act Two #1″ 

That’s right. “Empire of the Dead” has already concluded a whole amazing act that is already available at your local comic store. A review of the first volume will be coming from yours truly within the next few days, along with an interview with George himself, but for now, feast your eyes on an early preview of issue one of the second act. It looks to be a delicious blend of vampirism, zombies, and social commentary. Those of you pained by The Strain need not look any further for the vampire fix you so badly crave.

We’re partnering with Marvel to make sure you get every bit of this comic before everyone else. So stay tuned, this is going to be awesome.


From Marvel:

This September, Zombie Godfather George Romero’s undead epic begins anew in EMPIRE OF THE DEAD: ACT TWO #1! Written by the horror master himself along with acclaimed artist Dalibor Talajic, prepare for an undead onslaught as zombies and vampires wage war on the walled in streets of New York City! Undead forces are laying waste to the last surviving humans of New York City – but now outside forces seek entry to the once safe haven. An invading militia seeks to take over the Big Apple. The current residents both alive and dead might have something to say about that! 

“They all want what they want, whether it’s right or wrong,” says George Romero of the warring factions in an interview with “So I don’t think you’re going to see a lot of blinking. There’s too much at stake for anyone to give up. Power. Greed. Co-existence. Survival. It’s going to be a fight to the finish.”

“Act Two opens just a short time after the conclusion of Act One, but in that time all of our major players are advancing their interests,” editor Bill Rosemann explained to “Zombie wrangler Paul Barnum has added fresh performers to his Circus Maximus, the zombies fighting there may be much more capable than even he imagined, Mayor Chandrake continues his seduction of medical scientist Penny Jones, Penny uncovers chilling discoveries about the dual threat to Manhattan’s civilians, the Mayor’s nephew Billy is making his own play for power, and the militia that we saw on the last page of our last issue make a huge discovery that will have everyone watching the skies.                                                                              

What’s worse, the roaming flesh-eaters seem to be growing smarter each day! The ruling class of blood-sucking vampires can barely keep their grip on power as they struggle to battle back the hordes of zombies. As the Southern army begins to pillage the greatest city in the world one thing remains clear – when the zombies, vampires and humans go to war, we all lose. Don’t miss the brand new jumping on point as horror master George Romero continues his zombie epic when EMPIRE OF THE DEAD: ACT TWO #1 hits comic shops this September!

Categories: Horror News to Bring the Clownish Insanity Back with Killjoy's Psycho Circus

Dread Central - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 18:27

After the success of their recent web series Trophy Heads, Full Moon Entertainment has decided to fire up another... and this time they're resurrecting one of their most beloved characters to do so. Be prepared for Killjoy's Psycho Circus.

Bringing back the director of the past two Killjoy films, John Lechago, as well as stars Trent Haaga and Victoria DeMare, and adding on Al Burke and Tai Chan Ngo, Killjoy's Psycho Circus promises to be more of the crazy insanity that made audiences fall in love with the clown and his merry troop in the past.

As with Trophy Heads, Killjoy's Psycho Circus will be released in several segments to allow Charles Band and the rest of the Full Moon production team a chance to present the film in a cliffhanger-type series. Then, after the initial web series has run its course, the film will eventually be released in its entirety.

All of this will be going on at, where viewers can find thousands of hours of entertainment not available at Netflix or Redbox.

Now here's where you come in. The filmmakers are looking to bring you the best Killjoy experience possible, so to do that they've opened up a Killjoy's Psycho Circus Kickstarter campaign to help fund just a portion of the movie. They'll be footing most of the bill themselves, but every little bit donated will help make this movie even better. And they've got some killer swag to give away as incentives for donations. Check it out!

Even cooler?

Full Moon knows streaming is the future, but DVD is still the present! So they're adding a new tier for the direct-to-video faithful. You'll get Killjoy's Psycho Circus on DVD after the series has premiered via streaming, with all five episodes compiled into a single feature film. Everyone that has already pledged gets the DVD. And anyone that pledges more than $15 gets it, too, because the tiers are cumulative!”

Killjoy's Psycho Circus Synopsis
Killjoy, the demon of vengeance, trickster god, and killer clown, has finally made it to Earth! Along with his gruesome crew of Freakshow, Punchy, and the sexy/psychotic Batty Boop, Killjoy is free to terrorize mortals in new and excruciating ways. But two years down the road Killjoy discovers that life on Earth is a drag, filled with inconveniences such as eating, breathing, taxes, and immigration issues. His crew has left for other jobs, and Batty Boop has gone her own way after a bitter lover’s quarrel. Not to mention that Killjoy is now semi-mortal!

Meanwhile, back in Hell, Beelzebub is on trial for letting Killjoy escape. The only way that Beelzebub can redeem himself is to trap Killjoy’s spirit and bring it back in a box. For this mission he is granted a monumental spaceship capable of destroying entire cities!

Killjoy has finally settled in, starring in his own web series called Psycho Circus, as well as running a movie and merchandise company with the notorious Hambo the Ranch Hand. The challenges of being a producer are nothing compared to the challenges of staying alive after Beelzebub’s assassins appear to kill the demon clown and capture his spirit. Killjoy will have to find a way to reunite his gang of clowns in order to defeat Beelzebub and his minions!

It all comes together in an epic battle in Killjoy's Psycho Circus!

Donate and Help One of the Bloody-Disgusting Family

bloody disgusting - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 18:27

In the world of horror, there are a few voices that aim to take the genre and prove that it’s more than just blood and guts. They strive to show how important, powerful, and worthy the genre is and why it should be recognized for its intelligence, its strength, and its creativity.

One of these voices is BJ Colangelo, who is the owner and voice behind Day Of The Woman, a blog dedicated to studying and honoring the role of women in horror. In a male-dominated industry, BJ’s voice proves time and time again that women are just as strong and capable as the villains they face, the men they suffer, and the scenarios they endure.

But that’s all film, a series of scenes and vignettes that we watch for our amusement. Unfortunately, BJ was hit with horror in real life in the form of pancreatic cancer, a devastating illness that leaves few survivors. But just like the characters she writes about, BJ defeated her villain. Still, no battle leaves the hero without their fair share of scars.

On top of going through horrible procedures and surgeries, including the removal of a tennis ball sized tumor, her spleen, 22 lymph nodes, and 40% of her pancreas, that have left her far less able to work, BJ now faces the crushing weight of medical bills. And that’s what brings us here right now.

You see, BJ used to be a Bloody-Disgusting writer. She’s still heavily embroiled in the horror world. She’s family. She’s one of us. And she needs our help. She has written a post on her own Tumblr but we at BD want to spread the word. We want to do what we can to help her out. And that’s why we’re bringing this to your attention.

If you can donate anything, and any little bit helps, you can help BJ by sending any donations to via Paypal.

Raze Hits Home With a Thunderous Punch

Dread Central - Mon, 08/18/2014 - 18:20

Here's the thing... if you missed Raze (review) in theatres, VOD, or DVD, then you seriously missed one of the most ass-kickin' films of the year. So listen up! The flick is hitting cable! Now you have no excuse!

From the Press Release
Directed by award-winning Josh C. Waller, the highly anticipated IFC action-horror film Raze from Cinipix and QUINCY Pictures begins airing on the SHOWTIME Network at 12 midnight TONIGHT.

Raze follows a mysteriously abducted Sabrina (Zoë Bell; Inglourious Basterds), who finds herself in an underground lair led by Joseph (Doug Jones; Hellboy) and Elizabeth (Sherilyn Fenn; "Twin Peaks"), forced to do battle with other innocents for the amusement of unseen spectators. Each of these reluctant warriors has something to lose, but only one will remain when the game is done.

The action-packed horror film also stars Rachel Nichols ("Continuum"), Tracie Thoms (Looper), Bailey Borders (The Change-Up), Rebecca Marshall (Saw 3D: The Final Chapter), Adrienne Wilkinson (Reflections), and Allene Quincy (My 2 Black Girlfriends) as an eclectic group of abducted women who fight each other to the death with their bare hands.

“In every sense of the word Zoë Bell crushes it in Raze.” – Director, Quentin Tarantino.

“Raze raises hell, bashes in skulls, and showing no mercy, Raze is the ultimate midnight movie.” – Chase Whale,
