Which ‘Saw’ Trap Device Are You?

bloody disgusting - Tue, 08/04/2015 - 15:00

I want to play a game…

It’s no secret that the Saw franchise was one of the biggest and most exciting horror offerings of the new millennium. Fans craved each new film so that they could dive deeper and deeper into the increasingly complex and convoluted storyline, all leading up to a climax that was, well… let’s be honest here and admit that it was obvious and poorly executed.

While I thought the first film was sheer brilliance followed by a load of dreck, I can’t argue that there was a lot for horror fans to enjoy. The pervasively dark atmosphere, the vicious and brutal deaths, and, probably the real star of the series, the traps. They were horrifying, disgusting, and whoever came up them should seek therapy…immediately.

Based upon your personality, this week’s quiz is going to test you and decide which Saw trap you ultimately are. Head below to figure it out for yourself.

And remember, “Live or die, make your choice.

10 Incredibly Graphic Sex Scenes In Horror Movies (NSFW)

bloody disgusting - Tue, 08/04/2015 - 14:24

It’s been a whole year since we looked at cinema’s most terrifying sex scenes, so we thought we’d take a look back at the most graphic sex scenes ever depicted in horror films! Obviously, everything that follows will be incredibly NSFW and contain some serious spoilers.

Friday the 13th (2009)

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as hard in a horror movie as I did when I heard Travis Van Winkle tell Julianna Guill that her “tits were stupendous” and that she had “perfect nipple placement.” This is a ridiculous and fairly graphic sex scene! Unfortunately, the scene isn’t on YouTube, but you can find it on Pornhub (shocker), so that gives you an idea of just how graphic it is.

Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday

Last one from this franchise, but while Jason Goes To Hell is arguably the worst in the franchise (though I know it has its defenders), it features one of the most graphic sex scenes and kills out of all of the films (if you watch the unrated version).

Antichrist

Even though it was filmed with porn star body doubles, the opening scene of Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist is still extremely graphic. Actual penetration is seen. Of course, this is nothing to the third act clitoris snipping and blood ejaculation. The actual pornographic images are censored in the below clip. It is YouTube after all!

Don’t Look Now

This sex scene between Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie is still considered graphic even by today’s standards, but it is a beautiful moment in Nicolas Roeg’s bleak and haunting film.

Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom

It’s difficult to pin down just one graphic scene from Salo, which isn’t technically a horror film, but it is one of the most horrifying films I’ve ever seen. It is a difficult film to watch, but should be required viewing for everyone (just my opinion!) Really, the whole movie could qualify for this list, but here’s a small sample of what you’re in for if you decide to put this one on:

Hatchet 2

As graphic as it is hilarious, Hatchet 2 features one of the funniest deaths in all of horror history: AJ Bowen gets decapitated while having sex with Alexis Peters doggy style. After he is decapitated, his body begins convulsing, thereby hammering into Peters even harder, until she realizes she is getting penetrated by a corpse. It’s ridiculous and funny and disturbing all at the same time.

Brain Damage

While it’s not actual sex, it does feature a woman’s brain being eaten by a mutant penis as she attempts to perform fellatio on him. Fun!

A Serbian Film

Newborn baby rape and incest. What more do you need? A Serbian Film is one of the most difficult films I’ve ever had to watch, but I kind of love it. Start the video at the 11-minute mark to see the graphic scene. This is one of the biggest spoilers on this list so if you haven’t seen the film beware!

The Last House On The Left

It was a tough choice between this and I Spit On Your Grave, but in the end this one “won.” Both the original Wes Craven film and its remake feature rape scenes that are difficult to endure, but I think I have to give the edge to the remake on this one. The original makes you feel gross just because of the filming quality, but the remake (especially the unrated cut) features an extended rape scene that is absolutely grueling.

Tetsuo: The Iron Man

I wouldn’t necessarily call this one graphic. It’s just weird. The Iron Man’s body slowly morphs into metal, and in one of the weirdest scenes of the film, he discovers that his penis has become a large power drill. He proceeds to rape his girlfriend with it, killing her (obviously).

Obviously, this is just a small sample of graphic sex scenes in horror movies. I didn’t even mention Species or Otto! What are some of your favorites (if that’s not too weird a question to ask)?

[Blu-ray Review] Tim Thomerson and Melanie Griffith Shine in ‘Cherry 2000′

bloody disgusting - Tue, 08/04/2015 - 13:22

I love watching movies from the 80’s that take place roughly 30 years in the future because that’s currently the time that we’re living in. It’s amazing the type of changes people expect society to make in what is really a short period of time. Will the year 2045 be that different than 2015? Probably not, but if a filmmaker makes a movie today that takes places in 2045, I’d wager their version of 2045 would be incredibly different than the current world we live in. Cherry 2000 was made in 1987. It takes place in 2017, which is only two years from now. If we want to catch up with Cherry 2000 we need kick it into gear!

The year 2017 of Cherry 2000 has a world in which large chunks of society have collapsed into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. There are a few sections here and there that are thriving with the wealthy, but for most part society as we know it has crumbled. Relationships are quite a bit different in Cherry 2000, as they’re all treated like businesses. If you plan on having a sexual encounter of any kind you need to come to a contract agreement and everything must be approved by a lawyer. If you’re lucky that lawyer is a cool, young Laurence Fishburne.

If you’re the wealthiest of the wealthy you just buy an android and make her your wife. This is what business executive Sam Treadwell (David Andrews) does. He has a lovely model in the Cherry 2000 (Pamela Gidley) and they have a pretty great life. That is until Cherry short circuits during sex. Sam takes Cherry into the shop to try and get her repaired only to find out that she’s done for. The repairman is able to remove Cherry’s memory disc, a miniature compact disc that now looks hilarious, which can be placed in another android model. Problem is Sam wants a Cherry 2000 and those are hard to find.

Luckily there’s a robot graveyard Sam can go to and likely find a new Cherry 2000. This robot graveyard is located in the very dangerous Zone 7, but Sam is able to hire a tracker by the name of Edith Johnson (Melanie Griffith) to lead him there. Along the way Sam and E encounter a gang of wasteland thugs led by the evil Lester (Tim Thomerson), dead set on stopping them.

Cherry 2000 is a lot of fun. It’s full of futuristic thugs as envisioned by the creative minds of the 80’s, which are pretty much my favorite type of movie villain ever. They’re always such interesting characters. If I had my way the bad guys in every movie would post-apocalyptic thugs from the 80’s.

Melanie Griffith is awesome as Edith. She’s a total badass. From her kick-ass customized Mustang, to her attitude and style, she’s the type of girl you want on your side when shit goes down. She can handle her own in any situation, perfect for a world in which society has crumbled.

Tim Thomerson is the star of the film, even if he’s not promoted as such. Any time he is on the screen he just steals it. He’s such a cold, heartless baddie. He’s very simple in his approach. You’re either with him or you’re against him. And if you’re against him, you’re likely to end up dead. Doesn’t matter who you are. You can also end up dead if he finds you annoying. You’re a young girl swooning over him but won’t shut up? Bang, you’re dead. This is what a good villain should be. No sympathy, no remorse. Just looking out for his own.

Cherry 2000 certainly isn’t a perfect movie, however. It slows down in the middle. There’s about 15-20 minutes that are kind of boring, as the action sort of stops. David Andrews is also just ok as the lead. He just isn’t that memorable as the lead, likely due to the fact that he’s over shadowed a bit by Griffith and Thomerson. He gets the job done, fine enough, but he’s not a game changer here.

In the long line of post-apocalyptic movies, Cherry 2000 would fall in the upper half, but closer to the middle. And that’s enough to making it worth checking out.

Cherry 2000 is now out on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber. Special features include audio commentary with director Steve De Jarnatt and a making of documentary.

bloody disgusting - Tue, 08/04/2015 - 13:00

John Carpenter Working On Second Album: Limited Tour Coming?

bloody disgusting - Tue, 08/04/2015 - 12:45

We were sent some very interesting information from BD reader Kenny Caperton, who posted a comment on one of John Carpenter‘s Facebook posts asking about if there would be some live performances in the future. Carpenter’s response is pretty incredible, as he wrote, “There will be a limited tour next year in support of “Lost Themes” and a second album.

Carpenter’s Lost Themes came out February of this year to critical acclaim and featured nine original tracks composed by Carpenter, his son Cody, and Daniel Davies.

While the above information is incredible, it’s not yet confirmed, even though it comes from Carpenter himself. Plans always change, so let’s not get too excited just yet.

…Okay, I’m too excited. I need this now!

Ambulance Arrives At Fantasia After Viewers Experience A ‘Bite’

bloody disgusting - Tue, 08/04/2015 - 10:32

Working in a cinema growing up I got used to being around movie theatre drama. 

Getting soaked in piss when washrooms leaked during Finding Nemo on opening weekend, Kill Bill being shown instead of the same fishy flick & projectile puking during the rib rip in the Saw movie sequel I forget the digit of.  It seems Canada has it’s own share of issues when presenting films. 

Case in point happened during the female body horror Bite at Fantasia International Film Festival.  The filmmakers thinking they might cause a stir in stomachs were wise enough to give out barf bags to patrons attending the big screen debut but nothing could have prepared them for this outcome. 

Via the festival co-director:

I leave the BITE premiere for all of ten minutes and the following text lights up my phone: “2 people,fainted. One girl is puking and another hit his head on stairs”. Truth.

What is the most visceral reaction you’ve had to a movie?  Bite continues to screen on the festival circuit playing in London at the end of the month for Film4 FrightFest

Australia’s Kimble Rendall has set China-Australia co-production The Nest 3D as his next project after his debut film Bait 3D, pictured, scored with Chinese audiences, says Variety.

The story involves the innocent discovery of a well preserved mummified emperor from 200 BC that unlocks a 2,000 year old nightmare and secrets that should have remained buried.

“When a scientist disappears in the Chinese desert an international team of colleagues embarks on a search and rescue mission. Once in the wild a flash fire forces the search party into an abandoned building where they find themselves besieged by an even more terrifying threat driven to the surface by the heat.: swarms of flesh eating Funnel webs.”

Production is by Arclight Films International and Nest Holdings with Mike Gabrawy and Elliot Tong as executive producers.

ABC Lands Pilot Deal For Show From ‘Saw’ Duo

bloody disgusting - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 20:27

ABC has snagged the tentatively titled “Monstropolis“, a new horror drama that is written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the duo who were behind Saw IV and Saw V. The show, which is being produced by Aaron Kaplan, has landed at ABC after a lengthy bidding war and has been given a big put pilot commitment. A “put pilot” is a show that is guaranteed to air on-network. If it does not air, there is often a rather heft penalty to the studio.

According to Deadline, “Monstropolis” imagines a world where monsters and humans co-exist.

In Monstropolis, monsters are real, living amongst the humans in the city of New Manhattan (aka Monstropolis). But now someone is killing monsters, and it is up to one disgraced detective to stop the killer… or become the next victim.

Melton & Dunstan are currently working on Halloween Returns, with plans for Dunstan to direct. More information on that can be found here.

No other information has been released on “Monstropolis” but we’ll be sure to keep a close eye on this project.

Frank Grillo Returning For Another ‘Purge’!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 19:17

The screenplay for The Purge was phenomenal. The movie was not.

Its sequel, The Purge: Anarchy, however, was pure 80’s-style action/revenge film bliss, partially so because of star Frank Grillo.

The sequel took it to the streets with Grillo’s character, letting viewers witness the events of the annual Purge outside of a house. Grillo played Sergeant, a man who seeks revenge on the night of The Purge, only to get pulled into protecting a group of people who are left without shelter as purging begins.

Now, according to Variety, Grillo will be back for The Purge 3, which also brings the return of series creator James DeMonaco to write and direct the latest sequel.

Our own personal hope is that they tell an origin story, or head to another settings, although Grillo’s return likely sets this as a direct sequel.

The films take place in a future where there is one day each year when all crime is legalized for a 12-hour period, described by the government as “The Purge.”

The Purge 3 is set to bow on July 1, 2016
