Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered – AVAILABLE NOW!

Dread Central - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 19:10

A few days ago we told you that a remastering of the classic video game Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy was looking like a certainty. Well, we were right! Gamers, say hello to Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered! Oh, and did we mention that it’s… ummm… available NOW?

Even cooler? It’s only $10 bucks, and if you ask us… that’s money WELL SPENT. The only hitch? It’s available exclusively on iOS, Mac, and Steam, which means console gamers are being left in the cold. At least for now.

A Brief History of Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered
It’s exceedingly rare that video games attempt to upend traditional approaches to the medium. When it debuted in 2005, however, Fahrenheit (aka Indigo Prophecy) did just that and represents developer Quantic Dream’s attempt to open players’ eyes to a new way of experiencing the form. The ambitious title was designed by Quantic Dream founder and CEO David Cage and served as a statement that games could be about character and genuine emotional connections in more powerful ways than the games before it.

Originally released in 2005, Fahrenheit (known as Indigo Prophecy in North America) was a breakthrough in interactive narrative, teetering between the worlds of cinema and gaming while also embracing them, carving its own unique genre in the entertainment landscape. This newly remastered edition features updated graphics and full controller support for all platforms and is based on the uncut and uncensored international version of the game.

With a rich multilayered narrative, innovative presentation, and a chilling musical score by famed Hollywood composer Angelo Badalementi, Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered serves as the definitive version of the supernatural murder mystery and (re)introduces the groundbreaking title to old and new fans alike.

Key Features

  • Interactive Drama — An intuitive control scheme and spectacular split-screen presentation complement the game’s mysterious noir narrative.
  • Extensive Replayability — With branching dialog and multiple endings, each playthrough of the game yields a different outcome.
  • Multiple Characters — Take control of the narrative through four different playable characters, each illuminating a different perspective of the story.
  • Fully Voiced Script — Every line from the extensive script is voiced by professional actors in English, French, German, and Spanish. Voice files may require free in-game download.
  • Cinematic Score — Fahrenheit features a fully orchestrated score composed by Angelo Badalamenti, famous for his extensive work with director David Lynch.
  • Uncut version of the game — Unlike the original North American release, Remastered contains all of the game’s original scenes, uncensored and uncut.

Key Upgrades

  • High-definition Graphics — All of the in-game textures have been meticulously recreated in HD for mobile and desktop.
  • Widescreen Support – A true widescreen (not cropped) view strengthens the game’s cinematic qualities while also providing players with a better sense of their surroundings.
  • Elegant Touch Controls — An intuitive control scheme has been implemented that works on both phone and tablets, and brings the player closer to the narrative.
  • Full Controller Support —Support for MFi hardware controllers on iOS, as well as various popular controllers for desktop. See system requirements for full list of supported controllers.
  • Live Graphics Comparison — Players can switch between the updated visuals and the original art assets with the touch of a button.

Man-Eating Sharks Attack Under the Deep

Dread Central - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 17:56

Save for a few notable exceptions, sharks have mostly been the subject of Syfy-style fare in recent years, which is a total bummer. Once genuinely terrifying movie monsters, they’ve become laughable computer-generated jokes, though Under the Deep hopes to change that.

We tip our hats to Bloody Disgusting for the news that Odin’s Eye Entertainment is selling the shark attack flick at this year’s European Film Market, the film directed by Gerald Rascionato. Check out the first still below along with the plot crunch!

Written by Rascionato and Stephen Lister, the film stars Megan Peta Hill, Joel Hogan, Josh Potthoff, and Pete Valley.

Synopsis:
Three American college students head Down Under to capture great white sharks on film. But when a freak wave capsizes their boat mid cage dive, they are left fighting for and against each other in the world’s most dangerous shark-infested waters.

Backstreet Boy Nick Carter Directing Dead West for The Asylum

Dread Central - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 17:56

Well now. There’s a headline I wouldn’t have expected to ever write. The Asylum has long made a career of giving forgotten actors something new to do, and now they’ve claimed themselves another pop artist to go along with Tiffany and Debbie Gibson.

In an interview with Noisey, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter dropped the following on fans…

“Actor, director, writer. I’m getting ready to do a deal with a movie company called Asylum, so I’m getting ready to do cool stuff on my own. It’s called Dead West. [laughs.] It’s a zombie horror western movie. It’s a hybrid movie. I created the story, co-wrote the story with a writer, and just did our meeting last week with Asylum. They’re the same people that did Sharknado, so it’s definitely a B-movie, but with this movie it’s something I wrote from my creative brain. Now they’re coming in, and we’re going to partner together, and we’re going to shoot the movie in March. I’m acting in it and possibly bringing in some friends of mine. It’s pretty insane, I’ll tell you, and we’re really, really excited. I’m passionate about this, and I enjoy being artistic in a sort of quirky way that’s unusual. That’s why I’m putting together the cast; there’s some names floating around like Joey Fatone from N*SYNC or an old buddy of mine Shaquille O’Neal. Just an out of the box thing.”

Stay tuned.

Introducing ‘Jurassic World’ Dino, “Indominus Rex”!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 17:48

The official Jurassic World website just dropped a bomb, teasing a brand new dino that will be seen in the Jurassic Park sequel this summer (June 12, 2015).

The site, which also shared the three visual teases, breaks down the soon-to-be-legendary ‘Indominus Rex,’ which was formerly known as ‘Diabolus Rex’ (or, ‘D-Rex’). This is the hybrid dinosaur that’s alluded to in the film’s trailer, and one that’s allegedly a hybrid of a T-Rex and a Raptor.

We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered. At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed.

Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph…while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.

You can ppke around the the site to read about other dinosaurs, with more fun stuff waiting to be unlocked in the coming months.

The Alternate ‘Evil Dead’ Ending Aired In the UK!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 16:36

We’ve been investigating missing footage ever since Fede Alvarez’s insane Evil Dead remake hit theaters back in 2013. Bruce Campbell denied its existence, even though early trailers and stills proved there was in fact a variant finale.

Bloody Disgusting reader Alexis Ekizoglou just tipped me off to an IMDB thread where a user alleges that a UK television presentation of the remake was a never-before-seen extended version that carried a heap of missing footage.

Proof? Ah, we gotcha. Below we not only have the alternate ending, which shows Mia (played by Jane Levy) – arm missing and all – on the side of the road begging for help, but three other scenes clipped from the theatrical cut of the movie! It would be awesome to see this released in an extended version here in the States. After multiple viewings, I’m still a fan of the movie.

The Hilarious ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Joke You Missed…

bloody disgusting - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 16:32

This morning I was reading up on Oscar wins for Jonathan Demme’s 1991 The Silence of the Lambs, and that’s when I came across a shocking discovery.

While I’m sure a few of you smart-asses (I say that with love) already know this, I literally had no idea that Hannibal Lecter’s infamous quote, “I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti,” was a joke, as well as a very declarative statement.

Reddit user mrcchapman explains:

“I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.”
Great line from Silence of the Lambs everyone knows. But most people don’t realise Dr Hannibal Lecter is making a medical joke.
Lecter could be treated with drugs called monoamine oxidase inhibitors – MAOIs. As a psychiatrist, Lecter knows this.
The three things you can’t eat with MAOIs? Liver, beans, wine.
Lecter is a) cracking a joke for his own amusement, and b) saying he’s not taking his meds.

Another user, bICEmeister, chimes in with another deep thought:

In the book he actually said Amarone and not Chianti. Amarone would be a much better fit for liver, and a such shows off his sophistication and further strengthens just how psycho he is – making sure to pair the liver with the proper wine. The movie execs just thought that people wouldn’t know what amarone was, so they switched it out to a wine that everyone would have heard of.

A huge “thank you!” for making one of the best genre films ever even better!

The Babadook Strikes Gold at Australian Academy Awards

Dread Central - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 15:03

Here in the states, it’s quite rare for horror films to get any love at the Academy Awards, and only a small handful over the years have been honored at the ceremony. But things are a bit different in Australia, where hometown favorite The Babadook (review) has just scared up some gold!

THR reports that Jennifer Kent’s debut feature has tied with Russell Crowe’s The Water Diviner for best film at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards, Australia’s pre-eminent film and TV awards, announced in Sydney on Thursday.

Kent also took home the AACTA Awards for best direction and best original screenplay for The Babadook, one year after her low budget thriller film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Congratulations, The Babadook. Your Oscar gold is well deserved!

Written and directed by Jennifer Kent, the film stars Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Hayley McElhinney, Barbara West, and Ben Winspear.

Synopsis:
Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her “out of control” 6-year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both. When a disturbing storybook called “The Babadook” turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he’s been dreaming about.

His hallucinations spiral out of control; he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son’s behavior, is forced to medicate him. But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.

Mondo Gearing Up To Release ‘Alien’ Soundtrack?

bloody disgusting - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 15:02

A gorgeous new poster for the classic sci-fi/horror film Alien has been making its rounds since yesterday. Designed by Tyler Stout, the poster states “Sometimes The Scariest Things Come From Within“, and shows the Xenomorph mouth, the classic facehugger egg, and the spacesuits that the crew wore when investigating the emergency signal.

However, eagle eyed viewers spotted an interesting tidbit on the poster in the bottom left. The poster states, “Soundtrack Available On Mondo Records”. Looks like an upcoming vinyl release for Jerry Goldsmith‘s score is in the works! However, nothing is set in stone, but we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground on this one.

What We Do in the Shadows is Quote Critics!

Dread Central - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 14:45

That’s right! Deep in the shadows we huddle together and quote various critics until we find something we can come up with that can make it to the posters of upcoming films! Case in point…

What We Do in the Shadows Release Details:
Unison Films, in association with Funny or Die and Paladin, will release “Flight of the Conchords” creators Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s Toronto Film Festival People’s Choice Award-winning WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS in New York and Los Angeles on February 13, followed by an expansion into major markets, including San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle, and Washington, D.C., on February 20, with a continued national rollout throughout February and early March.

Unison Films will be heading up the theatrical release along with Paladin, and Funny or Die will leverage its social media and marketing reach leading up to the film’s release. WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, produced by Unison Films and Defender Films, along with producers Waititi, Chelsea Winstanley, and Emanuel Michael, follows the adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that’s not always hospitable to the undead. The highly acclaimed comedy sensation premiered at Sundance earlier this year and has since gone on to play Berlin, SXSW, TIFF, and AFI, winning every audience award for which it has been eligible.

Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series “Flight of the Conchords,” co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends ranging in age from 183 to 8,000 years old squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends in fashion and technology, antagonize the local werewolves, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet. The film also stars FOTC’s Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, and Jackie Van Beek.

Slamdance 2015: Shout! Factory Nabs Bloodsucking Bastards

Dread Central - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 14:26

The new, and very good, vampire comedy Bloodsucking Bastards (review) has an official home, and it couldn’t possibly be a better one! Read on for the skinny, and don’t forget to wipe your mouth when feasting.

From the Press Release:
Shout! Factory, a leading multi- platform entertainment company, has acquired the North American rights to BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS, a vampire comedy-horror feature directed by Brian James O’Connell and penned by the comedy troupe Dr. God from an original script by Ryan Mitts. The announcement was made today by Shout! Factory’s founder Richard Foos, Bob Emmer, Garson Foos and the producers of the film.

In this picture deal, Shout! Factory secured exclusive North American rights to BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS, including theatrical, home entertainment, digital distribution, and broadcast for cross-platform releases in the U.S. and Canada.

“Dr. God has made a gem of a horror comedy that fans will be quoting for years to come. It has the broad appeal of a mainstream hit, but the twisted sensibility of a cult favorite. It’s right at home here, and we plan to take good care of it across all distribution channels,” states Jordan Fields, Associate Vice President of Acquisitions.

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS stars Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods) as an overworked office worker whose telemarketing company is slowly taken over by vampires led by his longtime nemesis (Pedro Pascal of “Game of Thrones”). Described as “Office Space” meets Shaun of the Dead, BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS also stars Emma Fitzpatrick (The Collection), Joey Kern (Cabin Fever), Yvette Yates (Inherent Vice), and Joel Murray (“Mad Men”) as well as Dr. God members Justin Ware, Neil Garguilo, David Park, and Sean Cowhig.

The film made its World Premiere as the opening night feature for the Slamdance Film Festival on January 23rd, where it received rave reviews, and followed its debut with a well-attended Slamdance opening night party presented by Social House and the video game ZOMBEER with the cast and crew in attendance. “We are very grateful to Slamdance for picking our movie to kick-start this year’s festival, and we couldn’t be more excited about teaming up with Shout! Factory,” producer Patrick Rizzotti of Fortress Features said. “Shout! represents some of the most respected titles in the genre world, and we have no doubt they will do a killer job releasing BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS to the masses.”

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS was developed by Fortress Features and Maybe This Year (MTY) Productions in partnership with Dr. God and director O’Connell. The film was written by Dr. God and Ryan Mitts, financed by Fortress and MTY, and produced by Fortress’ Brett Forbes and Patrick Rizzotti (The Collector and The Collection), MTY’s Brandon Evans and Colleen Hard, and Dr. God’s Justin Ware. “We had an incredible time making this movie, and we can’t wait for Shout! Factory to unleash it on audiences everywhere,” Ware said. “They know the genre inside and out, they completely get the film, and they’re as excited as we are. We couldn’t ask for a better partner.”
