Disturbed Return With Badass Music Video For New Song “The Vengeful One”

bloody disgusting - Tue, 06/23/2015 - 08:56

Hard rock band Disturbed are back from their hiatus in a huge way! Not only have they announced that they have been secretly writing and recording a new album titled Immortalized, which will be released August 21st, they also have a brand new music video for their first single “The Vengeful One”, which was directed by Phil Mucci!

The video shows Disturbed’s mascot, known only as “The Guy”, taking down a television network that is essentially Cable 54, the station from They Live. The channel broadcasts subliminal messages that turn people into zombie-like creatures, a lá The Signal, and it’s up to “The Guy” to utterly destroy the station and save humanity. While the song might be rather safe, the video is anything but.

You can pre-order Immortalized here.

[E3 2015] Getting Wet With ‘SOMA’ and ‘Narcosis’

bloody disgusting - Tue, 06/23/2015 - 08:00

Last week I told you Don Allen was bravely representing Bloody Disgusting at E3, and playing all the games, such as the upcoming Resident Evil 0 HD remaster. E3 may be over, but it’s not official until we get through two more games, and this time there’s a theme to it. Below you’ll find footage from two indies that aim to take us into the parts of the ocean that no one dares to go.

SOMA has been on our radar the longest, so let’s start with that.

Frictional Games is aiming for a fall 2015 release for PC and PS4.

Continuing the theme of ocean-based horror, where an unshakable feeling of claustrophobia is how you know you’re alive and not being slowly digested by a Giant Squid or Kraken that mistook you for some sort of sea floor-dwelling man-lobster is Narcosis.

This game doesn’t have a release date yet, but it might have sharks.

RIP James Horner (1953-2015)

bloody disgusting - Tue, 06/23/2015 - 00:04

It is with a heavy heart that we bring news that, earlier today, famous film composer James Horner lost his life in a plane crash in Santa Barbara, California. When Variety reported on the incident earlier, it was only clear that the private plane was the property of Horner and that the then-unidentified pilot had been killed. Speculation has run rampant since and official confirmation has not yet been made. According to a statement by his assistant, as well as what we have heard from our own industry connections, it appears that it was indeed Mr. Horner himself who perished in the crash.

An esteemed veteran film composer who had worked in the industry since the late 1970s, James Horner created an impressive body of work that spanned across numerous genres and mediums. From action (48 Hrs., Commando) to drama (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind) to high adventure (The Rocketeer, The Mask of Zorro) to historical epics (Braveheart, Titanic), Horner excelled musically at almost every subject he put his mind to.  And then, of course, there are his contributions to our own favorite genres.

Horner was no stranger to science fiction, fantasy, and horror; crafting the scores to some of our most beloved classic and cult favorites. Aliens, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Wolfen, Humanoids from the Deep, Krull, Willow, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, Avatar, and even Hocus Pocus are but a few from his countless contributions to the cinema of the fantastique and all contain themes that continue strike a chord with this writer today.

Rest in peace, Mr. Horner. You will be missed and your work will never be forgotten.

Every Horror Game We Saw at E3

bloody disgusting - Mon, 06/22/2015 - 22:37

E3 is over. It was a wild ride that brought an array of news for gamers of all shapes, sizes and K/D ratios, just as the prophecy foretold. Whatever you might be into these days, chances are it gifted you with something to get excited about. Now that the dust has finally settled, we can do as our ancestors have done for generations and spend this evening reflecting, recapping, and if you were on the show floor, recuperating.

Over 50,000 “prosumers” flocked to LA last week to soak up some gaming goodness, making it the biggest year the expo has had since it was closed to the general public in 2007. Next year’s E3 runs from June 14-16, 2016, by the way.

E3 2015 wasn’t as exciting for horror fans as I would’ve liked it to be, but that was mostly the fault of a few glaring omissions and a general lack of surprises. We’ll save the former for another time. First, let’s recap the stuff that got my nether regions aflutter with antici-…

Doom

Bethesda might have raised the bar too high for E3 proper with their reveal of id Software’s Doom reboot. The game looks fantastic, but you certainly don’t need to take my word for it when you can see it in action here, here and here.

Release Date: Spring 2016 (PC, PS4, XBO)

SOMA

Frictional Games reminded us how great they are at getting under our skin with SOMA’s E3 trailer. What’s even more impressive than their drip-feed marketing campaign is how they’ve used it to keep interest high without revealing too much. This

Release Date: September 22, 2015 (PC, PS4)

The Walking Dead: Michonne

Telltale made good on their promise to bring us more Walking Dead at E3, and that’s exactly what they did with the reveal of a new Michonne-centric miniseries appropriately titled The Walking Dead: Michonne.

In related news, the developer also confirmed the third season in their acclaimed episodic series will premier in 2016.

Release Date: Fall 2015 (PC, Mac, PS3, PS4, 360, XBO, iOS, Android)

“Hannibal” Creator Bryan Fuller Describes What Would’ve Been In Season 4

bloody disgusting - Mon, 06/22/2015 - 21:25

Today was a dark day for fans of NBC’s “Hannibal” as it was announced that the series had been cancelled, making the third season the final one we would get to see. We still have ten episodes left, however, so we can all hope for a memorable but final end to this amazing journey.

However, just in case the show gets picked up at another station or platform, creator/show runner Bryan Fuller makes it clear that he has a plan, according to TV Line.

Fuller explains:

My idea for Season 4 was perhaps one of the coolest yet. So I would love to do it in some capacity. It would have explored the Hannibal-Will Graham relationship in a much deeper fashion than the series ever has before.

According to Deadline, the series might have a second chance on Amazon, which has, “…exclusive rights to the existing three seasons of the show as part of a four-year, five-show deal with NBCUniversal.” The other option is that Netflix will swoop in and save the day.

Right now, it’s far too early to have any concrete information. All we can do is hope that Will and Hannibal’s chase isn’t over yet.

bloody disgusting - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 09:49

Universal and Legendary Pictures’ Krampus is bringing some horror to the holidays when Michael Dougherty’s (Trick ’r Treat) film hits theaters on December 4th, 2015.

Bloody Disgusting was able to get the official synopsis that reveals Krampus, a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday.

The horror-comedy tells the story of young Max (Emjay Anthony), who turns his back on Christmas as his dysfunctional family comes together and comically clashes over the holidays. When they accidentally unleash the wrath of Krampus—an ancient entity from European folklore—all hell breaks loose and beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own. Now, the fractured family is forced to unite if they hope to survive.

Krampus and his mischievous underlings are being created by the combined efforts of Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, both renowned for their epic work on The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit trilogies and King Kong, among many others.

The full cast includes Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania Lavie Owen with Krista Stadler.

Written and directed by Michael Dougherty, Krampus is co-written by Zach Shields and Todd Casey and produced by Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni, Alex Garcia and Dougherty. The film will be released by Universal Pictures.

Could Jessica Lange Return to “American Horror Story”?

bloody disgusting - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 09:38

Two major pieces of “American Horror Story” news came out of an interview with Ryan Murphy over at Deadline.

After five seasons, leading lady Jessica Lange exited the series and will not appear in FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel,” premiering this fall.

And while it sure felt final, Murphy tells the site that there’s always hope for a triumphant return for Lange.

“Well, all I can say about that [is] never say never with Jessica,” Murphy explained when asked about the difficulty in losing her. “I think if I went to Jessica and I had an amazing role, I think she would do it. I think she wanted some time off, but Jessica is somebody that is always about the role, in every season on this show.”

Although Lange exited the series, “Hotel” will feature Lady Gaga as well as Evan Peters, Finn Wittrock, Sarah Paulson, Chloë Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson. But the cast is still growing.

“We’re just finalizing Denis O’Hare’s deal, he’s going to come back,” revealed Murphy. “Everybody else is pretty much done.”

He continues: “We start shooting in three weeks and we’re building this incredible set which is one of our best sets ever I think — which is saying a lot because our production designer Mark Worthington I thought really outdid himself in ‘Freak Show’ — but we’re building this incredible six-story Art Deco hotel on the Fox lot.”

Even more exciting is the reveal that two regulars are reversing roles.

“Everybody in the show is very excited about this season, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters particularly because in every season thus far they’ve always been sort of the heroes, the good guy or the good lady so to speak, and this season they’re playing absolute evil villains so they’re very excited about that and I think people will really enjoy it…

“…and the Gaga part is bananas good.”

[‘Jaws’ Week] Chris Coffel Has a “Jaws-a-Thon”!

bloody disgusting - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 09:31

Guest Blog By @Chris_Coffel

This year Jaws turns 40 and as far as I’m concerned that’s a big deal. This is what I consider to be one of the two most important movies ever made. At 40 years old Jaws is still as fresh, hip and scary as it ever was and that’s certainly worth celebrating.
 
Instead of writing about and reviewing Jaws I decided that for this birthday party I would have a Jaws-a-Thon. Over the course of 4 days I watched all 4 movies from the Jaws series. These are the random things that stuck out to me.
 
*Note: I watch Jaws once a year. Jaws 2 & 3 I hadn’t watched in who knows how long before this and somehow Jaws: The Revenge always seems to swim its way onto my TV every couple years, sort of like it’s hunting me down…just like in the movie!
 

I started off with Jaws of course, because I’m not an idiot and going in order is a must. Every time I watch Jaws I’m immediately annoyed at the type of relationship the people of Amity seem to think they have with Chief Brody. Brody is constantly harassed by every person in town over the dumbest shit. These are duties that seem below that of the chief of police. Kids karate chopping a fence? Is this the life a small town police chief is forced to live?
 
Roughly 17 minutes into the film two very important things happen. There’s arguably the most iconic shot in all of cinema. You know the one. Then there’s the death of Alex Kitner. This is when shit gets real. This is a scary and incredibly bold kill.
 
Chrissie Watkins dies first but she got into the water at night so I feel like she knew the risk. The Kitner kid though, that’s tough. He was out in bright daylight, playing in the water just like the rest of Amity. No one expects to die like that. Also he’s a child. Rarely are kids killed, whether it’s actually seen on screen or just implied. We see Kitner topple over and then an explosion of blood. It’s right up there with Assault on Precinct 13 for most jolting death scene.
 
Can the people of Amity be any worse? We already know that they think every insignificant problem of theirs should be Brody’s to solve but now after witnessing a young boy get brutally eaten by a shark they honestly have the nerve to get upset about the beach being closed?! At this point in the movie I wish for everyone in Amity not named Brody to get eaten by a shark. Mayor Vaughn truly is a mayor of the people.
 
Quint’s intro is awesome. It should be cheesy and silly, but it isn’t because Quint. My favorite part is the shark eating a child he draws on the chalk board. We don’t see him draw it, but I think it’s implied. Simply put, Quint is the best.
 
Hooper is a bit of a pompous jerk, but I like him a lot. The dude knows sharks, you can’t argue that, and a man of his expertise is most definitely needed given the circumstances. However, for the life of me, I cannot understand why he just grabs Brody’s plate of dinner. Yeah, I know, he sort of asks after taking the plate, but still. They don’t even know each other that well. I guess that’s just a bit of Hooper’s entitlement coming across.
 
Final note on Jaws is the amazing score from John Williams. It’s more than just the theme. Every note of music in the movie is perfectly executed. If the scene is tense, the music is tense. Scene is exhilarating, the music is exhilarating. Steven Spielberg and John Williams are the quintessential director-composer marriage.
 

I was actually dreading watching Jaws 2. My recollection was that from merely a technical filmmaking standpoint, it was easily the second best in the series, albeit it a far step down from the first one. However, I also remembered it to be the most boring, a re-tread of the first entry minus all the excitement.
 
Is Jaws 2 the first cash-grab sequel? I think it might be. It’s a prime example of a big studio having a hit on their hands and trying to replicate that hit to make more money but completely missing the mark on what it was that got them the big hit in the first place. Jaws 2 removes all the interesting dynamics from the first film and replaces them with more shark and screaming teens.

To make matters worse, the shark looks completely unconvincing and is so in-your-face.
Director Jeannot Szwarc doesn’t cleverly show us glimpses of the shark here and there to build any tension or suspense. He basically says, “hey everybody, check out this fake shark I have!”
 
What does the Jaws timeline look like? Brody mentions how 4 years have been thrown down the toilet when he loses his job. Using this logic we can assume that Brody has only been Police Chief of Amity for 4 years, meaning the gap between the first shark and the second is less than 4 years. This I find odd since Mike Brody looks to have aged somewhere between 6-8 years, although Sean Brody is probably only a 2-4 years older.


Aside from lacking excitement, the biggest issue I have with Jaws 2 is how they’ve ruined Brody. Brody does stupid things that the Brody from the first film would never do, but worse than that is how the townspeople treat him. They just treat him like some old kook.

I also have some serious issues with victim #4. This is the lady who thought the best way to beat a shark was to have a gasoline shower and then shoot off a flare gun in close proximity. Seriously, watch this scene again. She doesn’t accidentally dump gasoline on herself, she purposely does it. Like that was her plan all along. The scene is kind of cool, but still stupid. I was thrilled that she blew up. 

Why so many screaming teens? The last 30 minutes or so of Jaws 2 just consist of a bunch of teens screaming as they float on destroyed sailboats. This is especially bad when compared to the final act of Jaws. Jackie Peters, played by Donna Wilkes has to be the worst offender. She just loses it.

Just as I remembered, Jaws 2 is pretty terrible. With that being said, it did leave me with one question to ponder – what exactly does “tits like a sparrow” mean?


 
Jaws 3D decided to mix it up a bit and deviate from the first two films. At this point I think Universal knew it would be tricky to make a ton of money off another re-tread so they opted to go the gimmick route, thus the 3D. I actually think this is a smart idea. If you don’t have a good movie, at least provide a gimmick to distract folks.

I should point out that I did not watch this in 3D nor have I ever seen it in 3D. I actually watched all three sequels on a recent DVD release from Universal. It’s clear that Universal doesn’t care about these movies at all and just slapped them together real quick to make a few bucks. Nothing is re-mastered or anything like that which bums me out. I know they’re bad movies, but still. Come on Universal, show a little respect for your films!

In case you were unaware Jaws 3D takes place at Sea World. Not a Sea World like theme park but legit Sea World. I cannot believe Sea World signed off on this. Why would you want to put the idea that something could go horribly wrong at your theme park in the head of potential customers? The funny thing is that these days Sea World would be thrilled if their biggest problem was fear of a giant shark breaking in and wreaking havoc all throughout the park.

The first death is particularly awful. We see a lot of close in shots of what I’m not sure but I think there’s a flash of a shark’s mouth and then blood. The aftermath is the torn off arm of Mr. Muscles, which of course floats in the water and then comes right out at you so you can try and touch it like an idiot. This is one of many moments intended to capitalize on the use of 3D. The effects all look horrendously bad in a non-3D format and while I’d wager they probably looked bad in 3D, they’re probably more fun that way.

Speaking of Mr. Muscles, what are the job responsibilities of Sea World employees? Mr. Muscles, real name Shelby Overman, is one of the jet skiers, so he’s a performer. Yet he’s also the same guy in charge of welding the fence responsible for keeping Sea World’s expensive new lagoon separated from the ocean? What?!

Hey Sea World, I’m just spit-balling here, but how about hiring professional contractors when building a new exhibit at your theme park? You have to wonder if Sea World got their current business model from Jaws 3D. After all they do hire people and then declare them experts in fields in which they have zero formal training. 

This is the only film in the series that actually deals with two great white sharks. The first is a baby which gets captured and put on display for the paying customers to gawk at. This shark of course dies due to the stress of being placed in this unnatural environment – you know sort of how sea creatures really die at Sea World. Despite how extraordinarily fake this shark looks, I found its death to be quite sad. I was really pulling for the little fella.

The next shark is the momma shark and she’s a tad bit bigger and angry. She wants justice for the death of her baby, justice in the form of bloodshed! Neither shark has any trouble breaking into the park because why would they when the fence was installed by a jet skier?

Both sharks put Honey Palmer is such a tough spot. He’s forced to make some difficult decisions. You think he’d put the safety of his customers and employees first when making said decisions, but nope. The best decision is the one that is most profitable to Sea World! You know what I would have been a great money making decision that I would have paid to see? Honey Palmer fighting the shark.

Mike Brody, what’s he doing? I thought he was supposed to be our hero. He just stands around, pukes and cock blocks his brother. 

The biggest problem with Jaws 3D is that it’s so incredibly boring to start. The movie has a ridiculous plot that I’m 100% willing to get on board with, but it fails to capitalize. Where’s the fun? Once that shark is in the theme park let her go to town and just eat everything and everyone in sight. Instead we have two thirds of the movie dragged out and then when the shark finally gets to killing it goes by quick. There’s a fair amount of gore, sure, but overall a huge missed opportunity.

This less than delightful romp does end with a pretty spectacular dolphin freeze frame. That I dig, so kudos to you Jaws 3D but still I wanted more. Why didn’t you give me more?!

Jaws: The Revenge, the fourth and final film in the series, is a movie that thought so highly of itself that it decided to pretend that the events in Jaws 3D weren’t good enough to be cannon and thus don’t really exist. That’s a bold statement for any movie to make, let alone a movie of this quality. Still, you have to appreciate the moxie. 

Like every other entry in the series, Revenge opens up with an underwater shot, presumably from the shark’s POV. The first credits to appear on screen read “A Joseph Sargent Film.” Sargent was mostly a TV director, and a good one, but he also did some great theatrical releases such as The Taking of Pelham One Two Three and Nightmares, so how he turned out this mess I’ll never quite understand. 

In this chapter of the series Sean Brody is now a deputy in Amity. All these years later and he’s still copying his father. Sean doesn’t last long in this movie before getting duped and then eaten by a shark, but damn is he annoying in his brief time on screen. I’m not entirely sure of his age, I’m going to guess late 20’s but he acts like a bratty child. Did the Amity Police Department hire him on name alone? I was completely rooting for the shark to destroy him.

Revenge is also were we learn of Chief Brody’s fate. Apparently he died of a heart attack that Ellen Brody thinks was caused by a fear of sharks. That’s bullshit and a terrible way to send off one of the most badass characters to ever grace the screen. This is the same guy who spent his best years blowing sharks up! Chief Brody disliked the water and hated sharks but he would never let fear get the best of him. 

Do sharks get splinters? Four movies in and I feel like that’s a pretty valid question. These sharks have eaten a ton of wood. They’ve got to have some serious pizza mouth by now. Science should look into this.

Mario Van Peebles, bless his heart. Allegedly the Peebs wrote his own part in Jaws: The Revenge. That’s not hard to believe. His accent is bad, his hair is stupid and he says and does dumb things but I really think he’s trying harder than anyone else in the movie and because of that I appreciate what he’s doing. He also has the best fake out death scene ever. He is actually inside the shark’s mouth getting chomped up and then five minutes later he’s totally fine.

Michael Caine is the complete opposite. He doesn’t give a shit and will happily admit so. Caine is a very talented actor but I can’t imagine there was much even he could do with this script. So he took the paycheck and went through the motions.

Jaws: The Revenge really is incredible. It’s a very bad movie but not close to the worst ever. It is, however, maybe the most incompetent for a movie on this scale. This was a big movie from a major studio. Universal is big time and they were churning out some great stuff at the time so how did this happen? It’s remarkable to me that anyone involved with this film was able to get work after. With the first two sequels I think there was at least some effort to make a decent movie even if the end goal was just to make more money. With Revenge, however, the goal seems pretty clear – just throw something up on the screen that sort of resembles Jaws and bleed whatever remaining money out of it. Unfortunately, that’s a terribly sad end for this franchise.

After my Jaws-a-Thon was complete, my feelings on the four movies remained mostly unchanged. I say mostly because every time I watch Jaws I become more and more impressed with just how good it is. It’s truly one of the great films of all time. The craziest thing about it is that Spielberg was 29 when he made it. That actually makes me feel bad. I’m 29 now and I’ve done nothing.

The sequels are all pretty bad. Each one has fun moments here and there but not nearly enough to constitute as a good movie. It’s a shame because I think there was real potential with 3 and 4. These are all mostly irrelevant, however. No need to wallow in their utter disappointment. Instead take some time this summer to revisit the original. Films as good as Jaws don’t come around nearly as often as we’d like. It’s important that we celebrate the cinematic magic it created forty years ago. Happy birthday, Jaws!

Eli Roth’s ‘Knock Knock’ Stabs UK Audiences (Poster)

bloody disgusting - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 09:06

While we wait for a date from Lionsgate, Eli Roth’s (Cabin Fever, Hostel, The Green Inferno) Sundance hit, Knock Knock (read our review), which appears to be a remake of Peter S. Traynor’s punishing 1977 Death Game, is opening in UK cinemas on June 26th.

In Knock Knock, Keanu Reeves stars as a married man who lets two attractive women into his home while his family is away, which turns out to be a bad decision. Things get hot and steamy in a threesome before the girls tie him up, play some games, and go completely nutty.

The UK quad poster, courtesy of Empire, teases that some doors should never be opened.

Lorenza Izzo, Ana De Armas, Aaron Burns, Ignacia Allamand, and Colleen Camp also star in Knock Knock.

“Evan Webber (Keanu Reeves) is living the dream. Just look at his beautiful, successful wife, his two wonderful kids, and his truly stunning house—which he designed himself. Of course he did. Things are going so well, Evan doesn’t even mind spending Father’s Day alone while the rest of his family heads out for a beach weekend. And then there’s a knock on the door.

The two young women (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas) standing on Evan’s doorstep are where Evan’s dream takes a nightmarish turn. Given co-writer/director Eli Roth’s well-deserved reputation for creating cinematic discomfort, it should come as no surprise what happens next: Things get weird, and then dark, and then much, much, much darker. But this is no splatter film, so Roth keeps the horror nice and psychological as Evan’s life—and house—get ripped apart, piece by beautiful piece.”

[TV Review] “Hannibal” Season 3 Episode 03 – ‘Secondo’

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/18/2015 - 23:00

With “Secondo” Hannibal tips its hand to even further blur the lines between Hannibal and Will. You truly can’t control who you fall in love with, and now our two protagonists must dance with one another tangled in a web of betrayal. For anyone who previously doubted this show was about two men who find solace in one another, the show is raising a huge case for this interpretation. It’s more blatant than ever before.Some place I can never go – home.

Will is determined to conquer his personal demons, but he’s walking backward. Back into the blood and stepping in his own reflection. His trek to Lithuania and to Hannibal’s home should send shivers down anyone’s spine. When he arrives we’re treated to the overgrown remains of the man’s home. The identity or rather importance of the gravestone was pretty clear from the beginning.

The spaces of Hannibal’s mind devoted to his early years are they different. This part of his past holds great snakes resting in the dark. The deeper you trek into a mind palace, you’re confronted with rooms you can’t bring yourself to go into. But, Will pushes forward without any reservations. Only to meet, Chiyoh. The macro shots on her prey – the intimacy of death – plucking feathers and hacking a human arm best match cut ever.

The macro shots of her prey again show us  the intimacy of death. Plucking feathers and hacking a human arm may make the best match cut ever. Hannibal is meticulous he makes the meal delectable in appearance and preparation. He is a master of everything he tackles.

A beautiful dinner party is interrupted by a screwdriver in the temple. “That may have been impulsive.” Bedelia has mercy and with every episode she feels more like a victim. But we see that Hannibal has a sense of humor with his… “technically you killed him.” He’s acting impulsively and drawing all the men who hunted him in the past back to him.JACK IS ALIVE but not with Will.

JACK IS ALIVE but not with Will. And, while that may feel weird at first. He seems to be working well with Pazzi. It’s staggering to think that he sustained little to no damage from the Season 2 finale, but it almost doesn’t matter because.. he believes Will may be with Hannibal. But he wants to save him, he got him into this mess.

This man that killed Han’s sister and Chiyoh keeps him is his prisoner as well. Everything applies to both. He knows Hannibal intimately – perhaps very close friends. Then we see how he treats his friends – he serves them dinner made from his last victim. Bedelia hates him for this. She’s pained to watch them eat. The match cuts make us feel her pain. But, Bedelia knows Hannibal’s secret – “how did your sister taste?”

Will frees the man “responsible.” And he makes what seems like a total mess. But NO. Will and Hannibal are becoming one in the same. Chiyoh helps Will make his own tableau.

First Set Photos From Paul Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Arrive

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/18/2015 - 18:42

Now that filming has begun in Boston, the first photos from the set of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters have come online, showing three of the four leading actresses: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon. Not much is revealed in the photos, aside from some interesting outfits. Seriously, what is McKinnon wearing?

The unofficial plot synopsis for Ghostbusters reads:

Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia.

Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.

Head on down to check out the photos.

New Clip From ‘The Gallows’ Takes You Backstage

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/18/2015 - 15:32

A new clip from the upcoming found footage horror film The Gallows takes us below the theater and into tunnels that run below the streets. The teaser ends with a sneak peek at an evil figure, who might be the famous “Charlie”.

Twenty years after an accident caused the death of the lead actor during a high school play, students at the same small town school resurrect the failed stage production in a misguided attempt to honor the anniversary of the tragedy—but ultimately find out that some things are better left alone.

The Gallows stars Cassidy Gifford, Ryan Shoos, Reese Mishler and Pfeifer Brown and written and directed by Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing.

‘The Green Inferno’ Trailer Warns: Father Knows Best!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/18/2015 - 15:22

I felt like we’ve already seen so many images and trailers for Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno that it was going to be difficult to rebuild the hype. I was wrong.

Just in time for Father’s Day, a new trailer has been released that warns: father knows best. I fell in love with new footage immediately. It focuses sternly on how naive young people can be, resulting in terrors they couldn’t possibly imagine. The editing for this minute-long trailer builds so much suspense that I can only hope the full Inferno delivers when deep in the Peruvian Amazon on September 25th!

We reviewed The Green Inferno out of the World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2013.

Heading deep into the Amazon The Green Inferno with Lorenza Izzo are Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara and Kirby Bliss Blanton, who star in the pic that “follows a group of student activists who from New York City travel to the Amazon to protect a dying tribe, but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they saved.

Here’s the new Green Inferno trailer from Eli Roth, the mastermind behind Cabin Fever and Hostel, as well as the upcoming Knock Knock starring Keanu Reeves.
