Dread Central - Fri, 10/30/2015 - 03:18

Just a quick reminder, kids! XLrator’s episodic web series “24 Hour Rental” has hit Hulu and can be watched right now! Go ahead and binge some!

From the Press Release:
XLrator Media has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the edgy Canadian T.V. series 24 HOUR RENTAL from Reel One Entertainment. The 13 half-hour episodes will premiere October 30, 2015 exclusively on XLrator Media’s MACABRE Collection on Hulu before going to other platforms in 2016.

“It’s The Sopranos meets Clerks in this over-the-top gangster satire that pushes the boundaries of mainstream television and is tailor-made for binge watching” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon. “We are making 24 HOUR RENTAL available exclusively for digital distribution starting with Hulu, and will aggressively market the series to build a national audience of discerning fans who readily seek edgy smart programming on the top digital platforms.”

24 HOUR RENTAL was created by Frank Massa, directed by George Mihalka (My Bloody Valentine), co-written by Al Kratina and Mihalka, and stars Romano Orzari (Turbo Kid), Adam Kenneth Wilson, Aaron Berg, Vlasta Vrana, Mike Smith (Trailer Park Boys) and Michael Biehn (The Terminator). It was produced by Reel One Entertainment, Kim Yu and Neil Bregman and executive produced by Tom Berry, George Mihalka and Eris Salvatori.

“Reel One Entertainment is extremely excited to partner with XLrator Media to introduce 24 HOUR RENTAL to the U.S. market. The show’s unique mix of crime story and comedy should attract two diverse but strong fan bases,” said Tom Berry, CEO of Reel One Entertainment.

24 HOUR RENTAL follows former Mafia boss Tracker (Romano Orzari), who having barely avoided early retirement in a shallow grave, now operates a seedy video store. Struggling to stay afloat in the Internet age, Tracker runs his shop as a front for a host of petty crimes, from fencing jewelry to peddling dope cut with Drano and desperation, all in hopes of returning to power.

In addition to 24 HOUR RENTAL, the XLrator Media’s MACABRE collection on Hulu will add three new genre films in October: Poker Night starring Ron Perlman, Giancarlo Esposito, Titus Welliver and Beau Mirchoff, Feed the Gods and Strange Blood.

With all the talent behind “24 Hour Rental,” it’s definitely worth a look.

Alien 5 On Hold; Awaiting Prometheus 2

Dread Central - Fri, 10/30/2015 - 02:57

Fans of a proper Xenomorph filled new Alien film will have to wait a little longer than anticipated as director Neill Blomkamp took to Twitter to tell fans to sit tight because Prometheus 2 must come first. I mean you can’t have the chicken without the egg, right? Or is it the other way around? We’ve never been good at that game.

Regarding the sequel to Prometheus, Ridley Scott stated in an earlier interview that the film’s title will be Alien: Paradise Lost. Scott is prepping a whopping three (potential) sequels to pseudo-prequel Prometheus, the last of which will tie directly into the Alien universe.

The X-Files – New Poster and Teaser Straight From Roswell

Dread Central - Fri, 10/30/2015 - 02:43

Another new promo and poster for “The X-Files,” has arrived and it will be familiar territory to those who have long wondered what happened at Area 51!  Dig it!

“The X-Files” returns to Fox with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, January 24, 2016 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), following the NFC Championship Game, and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, January 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their iconic roles as Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully in a mixture of stand-alone investigative episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee.

They’re coming… are you ready?

The all-new episodes will feature appearances by guest stars including Joel McHale (“Community”), Robbie Amell (“The Flash”), Lauren Ambrose (“Dig,” “Six Feet Under”), Annabeth Gish (“The Bridge”), Annet Mahendru (“The Americans”), Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”), Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”), and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man.” Three of the episodes are written and directed by Chris Carter, with the remaining new episodes written and directed by original series veterans Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan, and James Wong.

“The X-Files” originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned sixteen Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes, and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena. “The X-Files” is a production of 20th Century Fox Television in association with Ten Thirteen Productions. Carter is executive producer and creator of the series. Glen Morgan also serves as an executive producer.

Immersive Film Catatonic Available Now on iOS

Dread Central - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 22:19

Sounding a bit like a cross between a movie and a video game, the immersive film Catatonic is now available to buy from the Vrse App Store for iPhone and iOS. It’s been available on other platforms, but now the Apple crowd can join in.

From the Press Release:
Creator Guy Shelmerdine’s virtual reality experience Catatonic is now available to download on the Vrse app for iPhone iOS. Catatonic is an immersive journey through an insane asylum in which the audience, bound to a wheelchair, undergoes a sensory-shocking horror experience. In addition to being available to download/stream on the Vrse app on Android, Samsung Gear, and 360 Desktop, Catatonic will be accessible for the first time on Vrse’s iPhone app where users can watch through the 360 Magic Window feature or full immersion through headsets like Google Cardboard. The release on iOS comes just in time for horror enthusiasts looking for a good scare on Halloween.

Catatonic was directed by Guy Shelmerdine, who for 20 years has been a force in advertising, music videos, commercials, and short films. The experience was captured on location at a derelict mental hospital in Pasadena, CA, with Vrse.works’ proprietary VR camera systems. Catatonic’s production value and cinematography bridge the stark terror of a horror film with the inescapable immersion of virtual reality. In the virtual world of Catatonic, audience members become mental patients.

“I wanted people to feel like they were climbing aboard a roller coaster headed straight into hell —a ride that they cannot escape from,” says Vrse.works creator Guy Shelmerdine. “Catatonic offers a glimpse of the overwhelming power of experiencing movies in VR. You are not a spectator. You are IN the film.  I built the tension slowly, letting a deep sense of foreboding fill the viewer with dread before anything even happens. The film is a journey towards our darkest fears.”

The experience premiered at SXSW earlier this year as a full immersion sensory experience where the audience was ushered into a custom-built wheelchair by nurses in 1940s uniforms. The design of the chair resembles a padded cell: a unique blend of comfort and paralysis. In the virtual environment, the patient/audience is wheeled through a psychiatric wing, experiencing the full brunt of madness within. Along with the 360º 3D immersion of VR, the patient also experience vibrations emanating from a Buttkicker, built into the base of the wheelchair. The many moving parts of Catatonic build to a cacophony of terror and depravity one has to experience to believe.

Catatonic was written by Guy Shelmerdine and Edward Robles. It was produced by Patrick Milling Smith and Chris Milk of Vrse.works with cinematography by Sebastian Pfaffenbichler, editing by Cass Vanini of Work Editorial, and music by Drazen Bosnjak of Q Department. Stitching and post effects were achieved by MPC VR, and Animatronics were provided by Legacy FX.

For best experience, please be seated.

Catatonic is available to watch on the Vrse app (Apple iTunes, Google Play store, and Oculus Gear VR store). Catatonic can be viewed on iOS and Android Mobile Platforms with or without Google cardboard by downloading the Vrse app, or on Samsung phones with the Samsung Gear VR. It can also be viewed through the Vrse 360-degree desktop player.

Neill Blomkamp Exits His ‘Alien’ Sequel, For Now…

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 22:04

You know the saying, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

While we wish we were announcing something to celebrate this holiday weekend, we have some pretty disappointing news.

Neill Blomkamp took to Twitter to announced that his untitled Alien sequel, which would follow Ridley Scott’s Alien and James Cameron’s Aliens, has been put on hold, indefinitely.

It’s not all that surprising considering Scott has been prepping to shoot his Prometheus sequel, Alien: Paradise Lost, early next year. This would mean that Blomkamp’s production would be pushed until after Scott could finish his Alien film, set for release in 2017. Furthermore, it would mean that Blomkamp wouldn’t be able to begin pre-production until mid-2017 at the earliest.

With that said, it’s sort of bizarre that Blomkamp is publicly announcing that he’s moving on to other projects.

Scott had revealed plans to do several Prometheus sequels, so why wouldn’t Blomkamp continue to develop and prepare his Alien in the meantime? This is all sort of telling and was foreshadowed a few months ago when we felt Blomkamp’s second Twitter campaign of images was a sign of desperation (he also did it again two weeks ago).

Twentieth Century Fox had announced Blomkamp’s involvement in the next Alien before Scott had decided what to do with his Prometheus sequels and before Blomkamp’s Chappie failed miserably at the box office. It could be that there’s been a lot of spinning wheels, for the fans’ sake, and that it has run its course. But this is all speculation.

We had reported back in August that Scott’s newly revived interest in the franchise had put a wrench in Blomkamp and FOX’s plans. I absolutely love Scott’s Prometheus (I know I’m in the minority) and am dying to see the full arc realized. It’s going to be such a wonderful fan moment when that franchise finally bridges with his original Alien film. It had felt as if Blomkamp was born to revive the franchise – and maybe he did, ironically, even if he’s no longer part of the plans – and it’s a bummer that he may never be able to realize his dream.

Whatever the case, we have several years of Alien sequels lined up, and now that Scott isn’t shying away from using Alien in the title, I expect more terror to ensue on the Engineers’ home planet.

Richard Cranor’s Star Leaf Wants to Get You High This November

Dread Central - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 21:32

Whenever someone sets out to find a huge batch of marijuana in a horror movie, you know things are going to get extremely nasty. It’s never a good time for stoners in genre movies, especially when the plant in question may have arrived on this planet from the far reaches of outer space. Intergalactic weed may sound ridiculously tempting, but you know it’s only a matter of time before several people die horrible deaths. It’s just the way the world works, I’m afraid. Welcome to reality.

Director Richard Cranor’s indie horror flick Star Leaf tackles such a heady concept. And as you can tell from the trailer embedded below, the characters in this tale are about to have a very nasty trip.

The official synopsis for the flick reads as follows:

A group of friends set off to find a secret forest of marijuana hidden deep in the Olympic Mountains. Legend has it the plants are of extra-terrestrial origin, and two ex-Marines among the group hope it will cure their PTSD born from hard combat in Afghanistan.

You can roll up a copy of Star Leaf when it sprouts on November 24. In the meantime, dive into a nifty stash of promotional material — including a pretty awesome trailer — below.

Play ‘Harum Skarum’…I Dare You.

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 19:25

Remember when those kids played Jumanji that one time and all those CGI monkeys went berserk? Remember when those kids played Zathura and no one saw that movie? Well I dare those kids to play HARUM SKARUM.

Below is the first ad for a board game you should not be playing. Really, don’t. And especially don’t let your kids get their rotten paws on it. Someone named Blackmagic Rollercoaster was suckered into filming the ad. Where’s he now? No one’s heard of him again.

A dirty black box arrives in the mail. Inside you find a HARUM SKARUM set – a collection of homemade masks, trinkets, little weapons, maybe some fireworks, and a deck of cards that dare the players to commit worse and worse stunts (“Take a photo of yourself, looking murdered. Send it to the last person you called”). No two sets are exactly alike. Each player dons a mask and lies, cheats, steals, and burns as many bridges as possible in effort to take away the other players’ masks.

Where is this going? Is it just a board game? I doubt it. We get plugs for maybe/kinda/almost film projects all the time. Tell me this video for a board game called HARUM SKARUM doesn’t wet your whistle more than all of those combined. Keep you eyes peeled for more on this glorious multimedia/damning project from Blackmagic Rollercoaster.

6 Seminal Rape-Revenge Films From the Last Six Decades!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 17:01

The rape-revenge film is a bit of a controversial sub-genre. On the one hand, it depicts graphic sequences of rape, one of the most horrific acts that can be committed, and can be seen as exploitative. On the other, it depicts graphic scenes of torture, usually at the hands of the person who has been raped, which also turns people off. Either way, rape-revenge films are an important part of the horror genre. With I Spit On Your Grave III: Vengeance is Mine (review) coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray last week, we thought we would take a look at the hallmarks of the rape-revenge sub-genre and have chosen one film from each decade from the past 60 years.

Six Minutes of ‘Until Dawn: Rush of Blood’

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 16:33

If you’re just tuning in, that on-rails expansion Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is official, it will require a PlayStation VR headset to play, and it’s coming to the PS4 when it’s good and ready.

That reveal video didn’t show too much, mostly because the screen was hogged by an enthusiastic Simon Harris, executive producer at Supermassive Games, so here’s a brief playthrough from IGN to help make up the difference.

Between this and that mystery project, Supermassive sure is keeping busy. Out of curiosity, who here is planning on getting a VR headset, and have you picked a side yet? I’m leaning toward the PlayStation VR, but the Oculus Rift would work just as well when I use it to become Cyclops.

Squid Lid “Shark Club” Video Premiere [Exclusive]

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 16:00

We’ve teamed up with dark electronic pop band Squid Lid to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for “Shark Club”, which comes from their upcoming album Tackle Box. The video reminds me of those crazy sci-fi rave parties you’d see in 80’s and 90’s movies. They were wildly colorful but also rather decrepit and featured a ton of UV-activated paint. It’s got that whole “cyberpunk” thing down pat!

The band explains to BD:

This video portrays a lab experiment’s journey thru modification and the visions she experiences of past lab experiments, onlooking creeper clients, and the monstrous internal struggle that materializes inside herself in order to preserve her identity and sanity. This is an abstract commentary on the need in some people to push the envelope of their own body modification and master their own evolution. It continues the motto of the band itself : show yourself, wear a mask.

Tackle Box comes out this Saturday. Pre-order your copy via Bandcamp.

Here’s a TON of New ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ Details!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 14:59

Hold onto your butts, because I have a bevy of new Friday the 13th: The Game details from yesterday’s Reddit AMA that should give you a much clearer picture of what Gun Media and Illfonic are looking to accomplish with Jason’s return to video games.

The spotlight has been directed almost exclusively on the game’s 7-on-1 asymmetrical multiplayer mode, leaving the single-player to fly almost completely under the radar — until now.

What we learned this week about the game’s solo offering is that it will feature “references to some of the very intense moments from the films as well as brand new hand-crafted scenarios that we’ve designed along with Sean S. Cunningham, Kane Hodder and Tom Savini to give you the best Friday the 13th experience possible,” and that it will star a “wide variety of characters from the films.”

As for the size of the world, the Camp Crystal Lake environment is the only one that’s in there right now, but that could change depending on how successful that Kickstarter campaign is.

“Right now, we’ve got one map that is one medium sized open world area of Camp Crystal Lake. We have stretch goals to include more parts of the game, can’t wait to reveal them as we get further along on the Stretch Goals. We might even have a few other locations from the film series.”

Speaking of which, even if the crowdfunding campaign fails to raise the $700k it needs by Friday, November 13 — that’d be impressive, seeing as it’s raised $553k already with 15 days left — it won’t necessarily mean the end of Friday the 13th: The Game. Gun Media promises to “do whatever it takes to make sure it gets made. It won’t be as big, it won’t be as epic, but it will be made and we will make it as fun as possible!”

Lots of folks have asked me what the gameplay will be like, specifically in regard to what the camp counselors can do to keep Jason from ventilating their abdomen with his machete.

“We’ll be giving you a chance to call the cops by repairing a phone box,” explains Gun Media. “We’ll offer ways to tackle Jason head on and survive through the night! We will not have daytime, its all happening at night. We’re looking at sleeping bags as being a hiding place. Jason will have an ability to find you with a mechanic. Finding good hiding spots will make it more difficult for him to find you, a sleeping bag is a good example. The thing is, if he finds you…well, you know the rest.”

And yes, you can defeat Jason.

“You can either defeat Jason (very hard/unlikely), find a vehicle and repair it to escape from Camp Crystal Lake or find and repair the phone line to call the cops and survive until they show up (you’ll also have to reach them.)”

Just make sure you stick together until you’re surrounded by an entire department’s worth of police officers, because “Everyone can live and die independently of each other. You are entirely responsible for your own survival. Working with/against/ others or working by yourself all has pros/cons.” So make sure you split up immediately, because that will confuse Jason’s machete.

We may soon be seeing some of this in action, as Gun also hinted at some new gameplay footage that will be coming “very, very soon.”

Friday the 13th: The Game developer Illfonic is taking character progression seriously by rewarding players with “bonuses for particular tasks. A bit of that comes with your creativity during play, of course.” Each character class will have their own ability tree that gradually gets unlocked by accumulating XP, just like in an RPG.

Once you’ve chosen your character and outfitted them to your liking, that means it’s time to pit them agains the big J.V. Multiplayer rounds usually last between 10-20 minutes, and while that can obviously change based on player skill, that should give you a good idea of what kind of a time investment will be required to play it.

15 minute-long matches is about in line with the majority of asymmetrical multiplayer indie horror games, including Damned, The Flock, and Depth.

If you’ve played a multiplayer game in the last decade or so, you’re aware of the surplus of dicks we have to deal with in any game that can be played online. Gun and Illfonic are aware of this too, and they’re taking precautions.

“We’ve done a lot of work with hacking on games so we have plans there but don’t discuss our plans with security to the public for obvious reasons, as far as other game specific issue we will have a strong support system waiting to deal with troublesome players.” If only we could send Kane Hodder to every dickhead’s house in a full Jason ensemble complete with a real machete. He doesn’t have to use the machete, but he doesn’t not have to either.

The team hopes to get a public beta on consoles — it’s only been confirmed for PC so far — so everyone can have a chance to play Friday the 13th: The Game before its release next fall. Whether or not that happens is dependent on Microsoft and Sony, so keep your fingers crossed.

And finally, what about life after Friday the 13th: The Game? Gun is interested in supporting the game with DLC and possibly even a sequel, but when a Redditor referenced the game’s original title — Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp, implying it’d be the first of multiple volumes — and what that might mean for their next project, to which Gun responded with a cheeky “We did say we were Volume 1 for a reason!”

Make of that what you will.

Blind Vengeance for Natalie Dormer ‘In Darkness’

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 13:58

The gorgeous Natalie Dormer – who you can see in “Game Of Thrones” and the upcoming The Forest – has been set to star in In Darkness, a psychological revenge thriller directed by Anthony Byrne from a script co-written by Dormer and Byrne, says Deadline.

The pic centers on a blind musician (Dormer) who gets pulled into London’s dark underbelly after she hears a murder committed in the apartment above her. As she becomes embroiled in this violent and murky world, it appears she is out of her depth — until we realize she has been following her own path of revenge for some time.

Ed Skrein and Stacy Martin co-star.

XYZ Films has just acquired international sales rights and will present the project to buyers at the upcoming American Film Market next week.

Production is set to start early next year.

Yup, Another Insane “Hemlock Grove” Clip!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 13:53

“Hemlock Grove, The Final Chapter” begins streaming Friday, October 23 at 12:01am PT exclusively on Netflix.

As I stated before, I stopped watched after the first few episodes in the debut season, but after the first clip, featuring Famke Janssen sucking blood out of a dude chained in a bathroom, and the last one in which some sort of creature it “lovingly” killed in what looks like a wood-chipper, I’m wondering what the fuck I’m missing? I may have to binge the entire series…

The Eli Roth-produced “Hemlock Grove” is a supernatural thriller which explores the strange happenings in a small Pennsylvania town. The show focuses on the unlikely friendship between the founding family’s young heir, Roman Godfrey (Bill Skarsgård), and gypsy newcomer and outsider, Peter Rumancek (Landon Liboiron). Each holds a monstrous secret that has been unleashed.

Here’s the Trailer for Eli Roth’s “South of Hell” Series!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 13:40

WE tv has just released the first trailer for the Eli Roth-produced and directed “South of Hell,” which will air as a true programming event – rolling out all seven episodes of the supernatural thriller in order in a Black Friday Binge, beginning at 6 pm ET/PT on Friday, November 27. All episodes of the series will premiere back-to-back as the suspense and drama unfolds and escalates over seven intense hours. At the conclusion of the binge, the entire series will be available on VOD, download to own and TVE platforms.

Charleston, South Carolina is an elusive city with many faces and the perfect home for Maria Abascal (Mena Suvari, “Chicago Fire”), a stunning, 30-year-old demon-hunter-for-hire. Alongside her brother, David (Zachary Booth, “Keep the Lights On”), she is skilled and fearless in her pursuit of the demons that live in others. Like those that she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover how far Abigail will go to remain a part of her.

The cast also includes: Bill Irwin (CSI) as Enos Abascal, Maria and David’s father and cult leader; Drew Moerlein (V/H/S) as Dusty, Maria’s neighbor; Lamman Rucker (Meet the Browns) as Rev. Elijah Bledsoe, a priest with a strong attraction to Maria; Paulina Singer (How to Make It In America) as the Reverend’s daughter, Grace; Lydia Hearst (Cabin Fever: Patient Zero) as southern belle Charlotte Roberts; Slate Holmgren (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) as the local drug dealer, Sweetmouth; and Lauren Velez (Dexter) as Tetra, a spiritual informant.

In addition to Eli Roth, an array of respected directors shepherded individual episodes of “South of Hell,” including Ti West (House of the Devil, The Sacrament), Rachel Talalay (Doctor Who, Tank Girl), Jennifer Lynch (The Walking Dead, Teen Wolf) and Jeremiah Chechik (Helix, Reign).

After Me, The Flood “Down the Rabbit Hole” Video Premiere [Exclusive]

bloody disgusting - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 13:30

We’ve teamed up with metal band After Me, The Flood to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for “Down the Rabbit Hole”. This is the first taste of new material from the band since their 2012 album Still Searching. Still untitled, their new album was recorded earlier this year.

The video has a strangely Southern Gothic feel to it. Stained glass windows are pierced by evening’s golden sunlight and dust motes float heavily while two women, one that gets covered in blood and one that has a very witch-like presence about her, slowly make their way through the house.

Check it out below and let us know your thoughts!

Angle Media’s Robbie Grantham and Scott Strickland explain:

We’ve worked with After Me, The Flood multiple times on a few projects in the past, so we were really able to hit the ground running when they contacted us to create their latest music video. We went back and forth over phone calls and texts for weeks before filming started, trying to really flesh out the concept of the video into something memorable. We knew that they wanted something dark and ominous, but wanted to keep it vague and leave viewers with a feeling of mystery and unease while watching the video. We’re absolutely thrilled that the music video is premiering here and hope that everyone enjoys it!
