You're pregnant with twins, your feet hurt, it looks like you're harboring a medicine ball under your shirt, and pretty soon you're gonna have to try to squeeze a watermelon through a straw. Yep, that sucks, but in the end we hear it's worth it. But sometimes families aren't so lucky.

From the Press Release
When a young couple moves into a new home, they find a mysterious doll that changes their lives forever in the horror thriller BABY BLUES, debuting on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital September 2nd from Well Go USA Entertainment.

Po-Chih Leong (Hong Kong 1941) directed this terrifying story of Tian Qing, pregnant with twins, who has a miscarriage and gives birth to only one child. With his wife suffering from postpartum depression, Hao seeks help and discovers a mysterious doll that may be the source of their problems.

BABY BLUES also stars Kate Tsui (Eye in the Sky), Karena Ng (Magic to Win), and Hoi- Pang Lo (The Grandmaster).

Synopsis
A new home brings a fresh start for Hao (Raymond Lam) and Tian Qing (Sing Kwan Janelle), a happily married couple who soon discover she's pregnant with twin boys. But when a difficult delivery leaves the couple with only one son alive, Tian is consumed with grief and postpartum depression. These “Baby Blues” weave an obsessive attachment to a baby doll, presumably abandoned by the previous owner. Before long, mysterious accidents grow into violent episodes that threaten the entire family - and one neighbor's warnings about a curse on their home becomes terrifyingly real...

We now have an exclusive clip from Zoe Quist’s (Mining For Ruby, Fetch) upcoming indie thriller, Raw Cut, which opens theatrically in Los Angeles on August 1st and is available around the country on VOD August 5th.

Starring Daniel Ponickly (Mining For Ruby, Mona Lisa Smile) and Christopher Kelly (Ink, August Falls) and C. Ashleigh Caldwell (Ashes, Not In My Backyard), “When Adam Cohen invites his best college friends, Jack and Amanda, to his new Wyoming home for a week’s getaway to meet his new fiance, Stephanie, the two couples get much more than the peace and solitude they were hoping for. Stephanie asks for help with her thesis film, a ‘found footage’ piece. The friends are going to play-act a traditional horror story: two ingenues are stalked and murdered by two crazed hillbillies. But who is stalking whom? How far are we willing to go for our art? How much will people take before they burst? Raw Cut explores the meta world between found footage and reality. What starts as a traditional horror film turns into something far darker, more suspenseful. How well do any of the friends really know each other? And who will survive the cut?

Purge: Anarchy Hoax Claims 112 Murdered by Chicago Re-Enactors

Dread Central - Mon, 07/21/2014 - 14:45

As you may have seen, a news story coming out of Chicago made the rounds across the internet this past weekend, claiming that 112 people had been murdered by a group of teens whose killing spree was inspired by The Purge: Anarchy (review).

It's precisely those kinds of stories that give horror movies a bad name, but thankfully, this one wasn't legit.

The website Cream Bmp Daily reported on the story Friday, which was packed with alleged quotes from both civilians and police officers.

The mass killing was described as a re-enactment of The Purge: Anarchy, taking place shortly after the movie hit theaters on Friday night. The site reported that no arrests had been made and that police would be closely monitoring social media sites, waiting for the teenage killers to brag about their crimes.

Fortunately, the obviously fake story was shortly thereafter debunked by The Epoch Times, who revealed that it was a complete and utter hoax. As it turns out, Cream Bmp Daily is a satire website, and the faux report was their idea of a joke.

Nothing funnier than a mass killing spree, right?! Oy vey.

Related Story: The Purge: Anarchy news archive

The Purge: Anarchy, the sequel to summer 2013's sleeper hit that opened to No. 1 at the box office, sees the return of writer/director/producer James DeMonaco to craft the next terrifying chapter of dutiful citizens preparing for their country's yearly 12 hours of anarchy.

The sequel stars Frank Grillo, Michael K. Williams, Zach Gilford, Carmen Ejogo, Jasper Cole, Zoe Borde, Chad Morgan, and Kiele Sanchez.

Returning with DeMonaco to produce are Blumhouse Productions' Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity and Insidious series) alongside Sébastien K. Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13, Four Lovers) and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay (Pain & Gain, Transformers franchise), Brad Fuller (The Amityville Horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street), and Andrew Form (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th).

Michael Caine Joins Vin Diesel in The Last Witch Hunter

Dread Central - Mon, 07/21/2014 - 14:41

If you're anything like me, the thought of Vin Diesel kicking witch ass is one that's got you all sorts of excited for his next genre flick, aptly titled The Last Witch Hunter. Those levels of excitement rise even higher with the latest casting announcement so read on!

Per Variety, Michael Caine has joined the cast of Lionsgate’s supernatural actioner alongside Diesel and Rose Leslie. No word yet on what role he'll be playing, though my money's on Father Dolan, who is listed in the plot synopsis you'll find below.

Breck Eisner is directing the film, which sees a semi-immortal witch hunter (Diesel) wandering the streets of modern New York City who is forced to partner with his natural enemy, a female witch (Leslie). The two must stop a villainous witch queen from obtaining a relic and unleashing a plague upon humanity.

Mark Canton is producing via his Mark Canton Productions banner along with Bernie Goldmann and Diesel via his One Race Entertainment banner. Erik Feig, Geoff Shaevitz, and Matthew Janzen oversee the project for the studio.

Synopsis
Five hundred years ago, war raged between humankind and witches, vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe, including Kaulder (Vin Diesel), a valiant warrior who managed to slay an all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments before her death, the Queen exacted her revenge by cursing Kaulder with immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Kaulder has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones.

Today, he is the only one of his kind–-the last witch hunter. With the help of Father Dolan, a Catholic priest, and a mystical arsenal hidden beneath New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, he continues to pursue the renegades and outlaws who endanger humanity. Chief among their adversaries is Belial, a powerful rebel witch who Kaulder believes has found a way to restore the Queen Witch to power and reignite her campaign to destroy the human world.

With the help of Chloe, a goodhearted young witch (Rose Leslie), Kaulder sets out to stop Belial before he can set his plan in motion, but allies in unexpected places keep the evil witch one step ahead in a cunning cat-and-mouse pursuit that will determine the survival of the human race.

Petroni's Backtrack is a supernatural thriller that he wrote and is directing with Adrien Brody and Sam Neill in the lead roles. The cast is rounded out by local actors Bruce Spence, Robin McLeavy, Jenni Baird, and Anna Lise Phillips.

The film follows a psychologist whose life is thrown into chaos when he discovers his patients are all ghosts of people who died in an accident 20 years prior.

Jamie Hilton (The Waiting City, Sleeping Beauty) is producing for See Pictures alongside Antonia Barnard (The Painted Veil, The Quiet American) and Petroni.

Must Buy Comics on 07/23/14

bloody disgusting - Mon, 07/21/2014 - 14:25

Every week we cover what we hope to be the best comics of the week on Wednesday, but for a lot of you that’s far too late. You’ve hit the shop and you’ve got your stack by lunchtime. So now we’re going to hit you ahead of time and show you what we think are the best offerings of the week. This way you can leave the shop Wednesday knowing you have a real winner in your pile, or at the very least grab something before it sells out.

These are the Must Buy Comics for 07/23/14.

DREAM THIEF: ESCAPE #2

I had the pleasure of hearing Jai Nitz speak about his approach to writing at Emerald City Comic Con, and he’s got a lot figured out. He knows how to pace a story, and make it grounded in character without forgetting a fantastic premise. This new issue of “Dream Thief: Escape” shows no signs of slowing down, our own Brady Steele said of issue # 1 “The setup leaves unlimited possibilities for what’s going to happen next and that’s just the kind of story that deserves your attention, readers. Get in on this caper / paranormal series already!” You heard him!

 

 

 

BUFFY SEASON 10 #5

Buffy! Nicholas Brendan co-writing the series! Down and dirty Dracula action! What more could you ask for? Ohhh… an advance review? We’ve got that from our own Farah Jayden right here. She’s already said “The fandom is lucky to experience the beginning of a new season that’s growing into one of the most original and skillfully constructed eras of the series.”

 

 

 

 

UNDERTOW #6

The end of Steve Orlando and Artyom Trakhanov’s insanely awesome miniseries is here. I can’t help but weep tears of sorrow as this has been one of my favorite miniseries of the year. Consistently Orlando delivers a script that packs an emotional wallop while Trakhanov has some of the best coloring work I’ve seen in a monthly comic. Together they’ve crafted a tightly wound story about knowing where you grew up and pushing into unknown worlds with only courage at your side. Will it all be worth it for Ukinnu? We’ll find out in three days.

 

 

 

DOCTOR WHO THE TENTH DOCTOR/ THE ELEVENTH DOCTOR #1

Holy shit.

Two new Doctor Who stories in one week. With each of the past doctors at the helm, and incredible creative teams behind both. I think both my hearts have stopped.
