Short Film ‘Dead Ahead’ is Delightful and PACKED With Horror References

bloody disgusting - Tue, 05/10/2016 - 11:28

Sometimes, a film is clearly derivative of the work of others. You watch it and you just think to yourself, “God, didn’t you have any original ideas?” But this is definitely not the case with Donal O’Keefe’s new short Dead Ahead, which chooses not to try and emulate certain horror titles but instead fully embrace them and make their influence 100% clear and apparent!

The 1.5 minute short is absolutely delightful and constructed in such a way so as to make spotting references theoretically very easy. What happens is a car is traveling down a country highway but the world they are driving on expands one tile at a time. It’s almost like those boardgames where you have to lay down extra tiles in order to proceed, only here each new tile may offer a horror homage, so keeping your eyes open and focused is a must!

‘Dead Ahead’ is a postcard animation to the world of the horror movie genre. Our intrepid travelers head out into the wilderness on their road trip only to find one nightmare scenario after the other. With each step forward a new monster emerges paying homage to such classics as Friday the 13th, Jaws and Pet Sematary.

Give it a watch below and let us know all the references you spotted!

“The Walking Dead” Mirror Universe Theory – What Do You Think?

bloody disgusting - Tue, 05/10/2016 - 11:01

Sick of The Walking Dead “who died” theories yet? Of course you’re not. This latest one comes from the wife of Treehouse director Michael G. Bartlett (read our Treehouse review). Mr. Bartlett reached out to us with this short video he made demonstrating his wife’s theory. As someone who only just recently caught up with the entire series, it makes a hell of an argument.

* Major Spoilers for The Walking Dead show and comic series ahead *

The theory hinges on the series 6 episode “The Same Boat,” in which Maggie and Carol are taken captive by female Saviors. While Paula (Alicia Witt) reflects the callous killing machine Carol is set to become, Michelle (Jeananne Goosen) reveals to Maggie that she has lost her father, her baby, and her boyfriend. Up to this point, Maggie has lost one of those – her old man Hershel. Following this episode, she has what seems to be a miscarriage and then Negan kills, well…watch the video below and let us know what you think. It’s convincing as hell in my book.

There’s More ‘Resident Evil’ Coming This Year

bloody disgusting - Tue, 05/10/2016 - 11:00

We have Umbrella Corps coming in June, followed by PS4/XBO port of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 4 in the summer and fall, respectively. Pair that with the Resident Evil 6 port we got in March, and the Resident Evil 0 remaster in January — as well as the Origins Collection that bundled it with last year’s remaster of the GameCube remake — and I’d say this has been a damn busy year for the franchise.

And that’s just the video games.

The point is, there’s always room for more and Capcom’s intent on filling it with another Resident Evil game that’ll arrive by the end of this fiscal year (March 31, 2017). The game was teased in the company’s financial report, spotted by NeoGAF user Chobel, which referred to a “full-scale offensive” they’re planning for the second half of the year.

“In the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, the Company is scheduled to release… Resident Evil Umbrella Corps (for PlayStation 4 and PC) of the Resident Evil series, which marked its 20th anniversary in March 2016, as warm up to the full-scale offensive planned between March 31 2017.”

Capcom’s stocked 2016 with more than enough ports and remasters, and it’s definitely not the Resident Evil 2 remake, which won’t release until next year, at the earliest. Could the mystery game be a follow-up to Revelations 2, or Resident Evil 7? Personally, I’d like a spin-off that stars the Merchant from Resident Evil 4. How about you?

Thanks, IGN.

1990 ‘Night of the Living Dead’ Actor Shares Intimate Set Photos

bloody disgusting - Tue, 05/10/2016 - 10:40

The 1990 Tom Savini-directed remake of George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead is long considered to be one of the few good remakes that the horror world has to offer. The original is an absolute classic but the remake was made by people who are clearly horror fans, so there is a delightful atmosphere about the film that resonates with us viewers.

William Butler, who played “Tom” in the film, has decided to share several images from the set of the film, some of which show a great detail of the practical FX work done for the zombies while others are just set photos that capture the fun spirit clearly held by the cast and crew. No matter what, it’s wonderful to see these photos.

Butler shared this images via his Facebook page.

Slasher Series “Dead of Summer” Receives Trio of Promos

bloody disgusting - Tue, 05/10/2016 - 10:16

The upcoming Freeform slasher series “Dead of Summer” has received a trio of promo clips, each progressively longer and full of more plot and intrigue.

Set in the late 1980s, school is out for the summer and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Clearwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses—and first kills. Clearwater’s dark, ancient mythology awakens, and what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn.

Zelda Williams (“Teen Wolf”), Alberto Frezza (“Charlie’s Angels”) and Eli Goree (“The 100”) star with Candyman‘s Tony Todd.

Williams will play a counselor at Camp Clearwater who is a mysterious loner with no interest in bonding with the rest of the group. Frezza is Deputy Garrett Sykes, a young deputy who has ties to Camp Clearwater and who grows immediately suspicious when events at the camp don’t add up. Goree will play Joel, an aspiring filmmaker who is returning to Camp Clearwater as a counselor and begins to buy into the idea that something weird is happening. (Deadline)

In addition, the network announced that series creators/executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis (“Once Upon A Time”) will direct the first episode. Williams, Frezza and Goree join previously announced cast members Mark Indelicato (“Ugly Betty”), Ronen Rubinstein (“Orange Is The New Black”) and Paulina Singer (“Gotham”).

“Dead of Summer” will be premiering Tuesday, June 28, 2016 at 9:00pm ET/PT.
