Disney Star Also Moves into 'Amityville' Horror House!

bloody disgusting - Sun, 03/23/2014 - 17:06

The floodgates have been opened for Amityville news this Sunday.

Bloody exclusively broke the news here that Maniac and P2‘s Franck Khalfoun would be directing the new Amityville Horror, while also sharing in a fresh story here that Jennifer Jason Leigh will star.

Our friends at TheWrap shared a fresh nugget of casting revealing that Disney Channel sensation Bella Thorn, pictured above, has also moved into the horror house! She will also soon be seen in Voltage Pictures’ thriller Home Invasion.

I’m told that Leigh will be playing Joan, a single mother raising three kids all on her own. The family move into the infamous “Amityville” house, only to learn that it has a very dark history.

It’s also looking as if the found-footage angle has been dropped from the film, to be distributed January 2, 2015 by TWC-Dimension.

bloody disgusting - Sun, 03/23/2014 - 15:00

Since I broke the news exclusively here on Bloody Disgusting that Franck Khalfoun would be directing the new Amityville movie, I’ve been making a bunch of calls trying to confirm the news.

Not only have my sources confirmed that the director of Maniac and P2 will be getting behind the camera for the Blumhouse production, but I’m also being told that Jennifer Jason Leigh (pictured; Fast Times at Ridgemont High, “Weeds”) is starring!

Explains our regular tipster, Leigh will be playing Joan, a single mother raising three kids all on her own. The family move into the infamous “Amityville” house, only to learn that it has a very dark history.

It’s also looking as if the found-footage angle has been dropped from the film, to be distributed January 2, 2015 by TWC-Dimension.

'Frozen State' Dev Diary Details Tweaks, New Features

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 21:10

The extremely promising top-down indie horror game Frozen State might not have seen the success it deserved with its crowdfunding efforts, but that isn’t keeping its developer from continuing work on the game.

I’m admittedly a little late on covering this dev diary — the first of many, I hope — in it, we get a look at some of the tweaks and additions they’ve made to the game. Among them is an updated camera, which can be rotated and zoomed in our out, depending on how much of this barren, frozen wasteland you’re interested in seeing. They’ve also implemented a neat effect where frost accumulates on the camera over time. More after the jump!

If you’re still not sold on Frozen State, let me introduce you to Jim, the zombie pig. He enjoys long walks in the frozen Russian wilderness, stalking unsuspecting prey and haunting your dreams.

You’re welcome.

It's Kill Or Be Killed In The Ambitious Open World Survival Game 'Miscreated'

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 20:00

Last year fostered an unusual trend. I don’t fully understand the appeal of it, but I can’t help but find the games and gamers who enjoy it fascinating to study. That trend was video games that starve and dehydrate their players. Survival simulators. DayZ and Rust are the two biggest success stories so far, and I don’t think it’s a stretch to say a startling portion of their communities are borderline psychopaths.

As we wade further into 2014 and games like these continue to see massive success, we’ll undoubtedly start seeing more developers take a stab at creating unforgiving, post-apocalyptic worlds for gamers to set aside their humanity and jump in. One of the more promising contenders is Miscreated, and so far it looks like a worthy addition to this genre.

Miscreated looks to feature many of the things fans have come to expect from games like these, including a massive persistent open world (over 64km²). It will also feature weapon and vehicle customization, a dynamic weather system, and yes — PvP.

According to the game’s IndieDB page, there will be “no safe zones or game rules exist allowing you to kill anyone at any time for any reason.”

For more on Miscreated, follow it on IndieDB.

'Walking Dead's' Clem Sees Something She'll Never Forget

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 19:19

I wouldn’t normally post something like this, but it’s a slow news today, so I figured why not? A zombie infested world is a harsh one. It’s merciless, dangerous, and one bad move can get you killed. It’s also a place where you’re likely to see some truly horrifying things. This is something we’ll all learn when the zombies inevitably come, and it’s something Clementine, the star of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Game, just learned the hard way.

If you’re itching for some more Walking Dead, the second season in Telltale’s episodic series debuted back in December and its second episode released earlier this month.

Tom Savini Isn't Directing 'Friday the 13th'

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 19:10

Allegedly, special effects legend Tom Savini was at the Mad Monster Party in North Carolina this weekend telling fans that he’s “being courted” to direct the next Friday the 13th.

Instead of rushing to post false news for the traffic bump, we did the work, checked with our sources, and were able to learn that this is completely untrue.

What we did find out, however, is that Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes are currently in discussions for a director to bring the Voorhees family back from the grave.

Watch for news on that soon here on Bloody Disgusting.

According To This Infographic, A Zombie Apocalypse Will Make A LOT Of People Happy

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 18:55

The zombie apocalypse is coming. You know it, I know it. Movies and television are preparing us mentally, while video games are giving us the skills to survive it. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re undoubtedly already fully aware of how popular the zombie genre has become across all forms of media. Most of the time, a zombie apocalypse scenario is presented as a horrible thing — people are eaten alive, it’s every man, woman, and child for his or herself, and when there are no laws or rules, humans become the real threat.

All that didn’t stop a massive percentage (33.56%, to be exact) of 800,000 people polled from saying they’d be more than cool with a zombie apocalypse — they’d be happy. See the full results in snazzy infographic form after the break.

[TV] "Penny Dreadful" Teaser Stitched Together

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 17:14

After sharing actual show footage, I’m confused as to why Showtime is reverting back to promoting “Penny Dreadful” with teasers? Still, it’s cool to see this one get stitched together.

Premiering May 11, the show is said to feature some of literature’s most frightening and iconic figures as they grapple with alienation in Victorian London.

Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star. Dalton will be playing African explorer “Sir Malcolm,” while Carney has snapped up Dorian Gray. Hartnett will play the role of “Ethan Chandler,” a charming American who finds himself trapped in the darkest corners of Victorian London. Green will play “Vanessa Ives,” a seductive and formidable beauty full of secrets and danger. Treadaway will be assembled as “Victor Frankenstein.”

Oscar-nominee Logan created and wrote the series with the first two episodes to be helmed by The Orphanage and The Impossible director Juan Antonio Bayona.

Dive Further Into 'Hannibal' With Halia Meguid's "The Ravenstag"

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 11:00

If you’re not watching NBC’s Hannibal, then you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s probably the most visceral, intense, and shocking show on network TV right now (and possibly ever). It’s beautifully shot and features some stellar acting, along with some truly haunting music. In short, I love it. I can’t get enough of it. I just really hope that they don’t f*ck it up.

But while things are still good, let’s keep celebrating it! Below is a beautiful acoustic track entitled “The Ravenstag” by Halia Meguid, which features a ton of scenes from the show. The track was originally a fan song but it appears to have caught the attention of the producers as they went all out creating the below video, which features Meguid.

Head below for the video and lyrics.

Lyrics:
blue as night, the ravenstag was flying
as you plucked the hyde, the beast stood crying
was it ever not enough to torment enough, cried out the blood in the veins
of the ravenstag who told me your name

i’ve started dreaming the most peculiar pictures
the blacks and whites and colors are richer
did you feel it kind enough, yes kind enough to plant the seed in my brain
of the ravenstag whispering your name

vulgar fruit, it gleams like vulgar diamonds
a picture of my own designing
wish they’d said, “beware the signs, the meats and wines of the velvet joy and the pain
of the ravenstag when he calls your name”

come into my parlor says the spider
close my eyes, the space between heartbeats grows wider
maybe i’m not brave enough or sane enough to steady the knife of the gaze
of the ravenstag as it whispers my name

morning’s come and the ravenstag’s behind me
i’m a crimson stain and no wind can dry me
is an enemy enough to keep the love of a monster that swallows and maims
the same ravenstag who knows my name?

Reach Your Breaking Point with the Preview and a Few Stills from Hannibal Episode 2.05 - Mukozuke

Dread Central - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 10:30

Just when it seems "Hannibal" couldn't possibly get any better, next week Eddie Izzard returns as Dr. Gideon in Episode 2.05, "Mukozuke." Here's the preview along with some stills, many of which harken back to the series' iconic roots.

"Hannibal" Episode 2.03 - "Mukozuke" (airs 3/28/14; 10-11PM)
WILL REACHES HIS BREAKING POINT AND SENDS A KILLER AFTER HANNIBAL - When one of the team’s own is found in a grotesque tableau, Will (Hugh Dancy) volunteers to assist with the profile.

He informs Jack (Laurence Fishburne) that it’s the work of the Chesapeake Ripper and the Copycat Killer… the two are one and the same.

Dr. Able Gideon (Eddie Izzard) is brought back to the asylum to help confirm Will’s claims of the Ripper’s true identity (Hannibal Lecter) but instead suggests to Will the idea of putting an end to the Ripper once and for all.

Confined behind bars, Will enlists the help of Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) to contact his murderous admirer through her website. Once he has the killer’s attention, Will asks for help dealing with Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen).

Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) becomes suspicious of Will’s intentions after reading Freddie’s article, and Gideon confirms her suspicions, sending Alana and Jack rushing to find Hannibal before it’s too late. Also starring Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson.

[TV] Next On "Hannibal": Just How Dark and Dreary Will They Go?!

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 09:38

I’m just now watching last night’s “Hannibal” and can’t believe how dark, dreary and daring they’ve gone. This episode carries some of the most disturbing imagery I’ve ever seen on television; I can easily see this causing casual viewers to tune out. Unfortunately, this is what makes this show a million times better than “The Walking Dead,” yet millions more people watch that. Go figure…

Anyways, Will Graham’s problems continue next Friday in Episode 2.5, “Mukozuke”: “When Will assists with a profile he reveals the Chesapeake Ripper and the Copycat Killer are the same person; Will asks Freddie Lounds to help him contact his admirer; Alana becomes suspicious of Will.

M. Night Shyamalan's 'Sundowning' Cast and Plot Details...

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/21/2014 - 23:50

Finally some word on that top secret M. Night Shyamalan project, which is being pegged at the director’s first micro-budgeted feature.

TheWrap scored first casting news, revealing that Shyamalan’s Sundowning stars Tomorrowland‘s Kathryn Hahn, pictured, and rising child actor Ed Oxenbould.

In some very early, but vague plot details, Hahn plays a single mother whose two young children visit their grandparents… and things go very wrong. Oxenbould plays her son, who is protective of his sister.

Doing some research, “sundowning” is described as a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia. Symptoms also include agitation and mood swings.

Shyamalan is producing with Marc Bienstock and Ashwin Rajan, while Steven Schneider of Room 101 is executive producing. Production has nearly wrapped in Shyamalan’s home base of Pennsylvania.
