Dread Central Turns 8!

Dread Central - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 10:00

On July 4th, 2006, Dread Central opened its doors, and for nearly a decade now we've been bringing you constant horror content every day since. No holidays. No days off. We're always here, and we are always happy to do so. So it's with great pride that we wish you, our readers, a happy anniversary!

Being a writer in the web business is not easy. There are so many bumps along the way that it gets hard to remember the smoother patches. One thing that doesn't change, though, is how absolutely worth it it all is.

You guys give us a platform, and we do our best to honor that gift. We've made each other laugh, screamed over our disagreements (complete with CAPS LOCK ON), and have learned so much from one another. Every day that we get to do this is a blessing, and in an industry where so many websites comes and go, our longevity is something we are thankful beyond words for. You make every day Halloween. Really, is there anything better than that?

Lots of Dread Central staffers have gone on to work on some pretty big things, and that's another thing we're proud of. No matter where life has taken us, we always have this home. The Foywonder, Andrew Kasch, Buz Wallick, Mr. Dark, and Nomad have been here since day one, and we're lucky to have them. To them I'd like say thank you for sticking by us on behalf of myself, KW Low, and of course Jon Condit.

Other DC family members worthy of our unconditional gratitude are Scott Hallam, Gareth Jones, Matt Fini, Sean Decker, Brad McHargue, Drew Tinnin, Heather Buckley, Serena Whitney, Aaron Williams, CrixLee, and Alex DiVincenzo. We'd also like to welcome and thank the class of 2013/2014 - John Squires, Scott Dell, Staci Layne Wilson, Anthony Arrigo, Matt Molgaard, and Vanessa Gomez. You guys are as fucking rock and roll as they come.

As always, my personal thanks go to Jon Condit, KW Low, and Debi Moore. If not for this trio, Dread Central simply wouldn't exist. As a matter of fact, neither would I. You three have been collectively saving my life for years, and I would be ZERO without you. Especially Debi. Someone's gonna erect a statue of her one day for her saint-like service of putting up with me every day. I love you guys more than words could ever fully express.

Then there's you sickos! Kidd Capone, Terminal, David Fullam, James Coker, AlienSharkBoy, Frank_Dracman, theGoldenSimatar, Screamz, LSD Zombie, Nazo, MagusMaleficus, Cinemascribe, MichaelRAllen, Cash Bailey, elric300, GODFLESH69, NYC-Hearts, MonsterMash, addeisdead, Shambling_in_Bandages, shallowcuts, RottenJesus, PrairieGhost, Diavolo, LifeMi, will graham, Jerel Of The Dead, Orlovsky, Gus Bjork, conundrum, Rob, and of course our Mexican brother from another mother, "El Soccer Dude" J. Oviedo. You cats post just about every week at least, and we're proud to have you as not only our regulars but also our peers. Thanks for making the DC community one of the best and friendliest places online. And if you're reading this and you haven't jumped in, fucking do so already! I know you're there! I can see you online!

Here's to another year, kids! Thank you.

Dead Girlfriend’s Facebook Messages Are Nightmare Fuel

bloody disgusting - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 22:05

Buckle up, because we’re about to go on a journey. If you’ve perused Reddit over the last 48 hours, you may have already stumbled upon this intensely unnerving story from a man named Nathan, whose girlfriend, Emily, was killed in a car crash two years ago. For most of us, death is the end of our time here on this wonderful planet, but for some reason, Emily seems to have gotten caught in Facebook limbo. In related news, if Facebook limbo is a thing, it’s officially the worst way to spend an afterlife.

Obviously, it should go without saying that this could, and very likely is, a story that’s been fabricated to freak people out. If that’s the case, Nathan’s done a wonderful job in crafting a thoroughly unsettling story that makes me glad I no longer use the popular social media site.

Nathan’s story was posted on No Sleep, a corner of Reddit that’s been carved out for those who wish to share their “true” ghost stories that aim to raise the hairs on the back of your neck and send shivers down your spine.

Two days ago, Nathan posted his story on Reddit. It’s since blown up, gathering an impressive 3,847 upvotes as of the time of this writing. The whole thing started on September 4, 2013, when Emily returned to Facebook.

It’s worth mentioning that, according to Nathan, only he and Emily’s mom share admin privileges of Emily’s Facebook account. They decided not to memorialize the page, because it “felt too final.” I can certainly understand that.

Nathan soon realized that the messages Emily was posting were sourced from old chats the two of them had shared back before the accident that claimed her life.

Then, this past February, things got really creepy. Emily had started tagging herself in photos.

That’s just not right. If this is real, then, damn. But if someone is messing with Nathan, than I’m pretty sure that individual has no soul.

This kept going on, with Emily randomly tagging herself in photos and posting messages comprised of words she had typed when she was among the living, until on May 8, when Emily used her first original word. FRE EZIN G.

In his post, Nathan says this is the message that turned his growing anger and frustration toward a person he assumed was trying to mess with him into terror. He was no longer able to sleep, and when he did, he was plagued by nightmares in which Emily is trapped in an “ice cold car, frozen blue and grey, and I’m standing outside in the warmth screaming at her to open the door. She doesn’t even realise I’m there. Sometimes her legs are outside with me.”

Part of me believes — even hopes — that this a story Nathan made up to get his 15 seconds of Internet fame, because if that’s not the case, then this is one of the most eerie stories I’ve ever heard. No one should have to go through the pain that comes from losing a partner, but to endure something like this, only a few years later, when the wounds are probably only just beginning to scab over? That’s not right.

The story goes on. Nathan ended up memorializing Emily’s page, and that actually stopped her messages until July 1, the day before he took to Reddit to share his story. What do you think of all this?

A few days ago we saw a 3-minute clip from Sharknado 2: The Second One, and now we have a 4-minute featurette to share that give us a look into the film's story. In addition, check out "Castnado," which explains why a slew of famous faces wanted to be part of the phenomenon.

In Sharknado 2: The Second One, a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a "sharknado" on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, returning from the original) can save the Big Apple.

Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander, Vivica A. Fox, and Mark McGrath also appear in the Syfy Original Movie, which promises cameos by the likes of Perez Hilton, rapper Biz Markie, Salt-N-Pepa's Pepa (aka Sandra Denton), Robert Klein, and professional wrestler/Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle.

Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote Sharknado.

Sharknado 2 premieres on Wednesday, July 30th, at 9 PM PT/ET, just a little more than one year after the original Sharknado aired.

UK rock duo Royal Blood have released a new single entitled “Figure It Out”, which comes from their upcoming self-titled debut full length album (out August 25th). You can listen to the track below.

The band has upcoming US dates opening for The Pixies and Arctic Monkeys. Their raw blues-tinged heavy rock style combined with the fact that it’s just a drummer and bassist make them a band that I’m keeping a close eye on. I expect great things from them this year!

Co-creator Leigh Whannell is set to direct the third Insidious film, but fans probably know him best as “Specs,” one of the paranormal investigators who’s dared to venture into the Further. Yeah, the third installment is going meta.

The third film is bringing back Lin Shaye as Elise Rainier as well as Tucker and Whannell’s character.

There’s no denying James Wan’s impact on the horror genre recently. I’m an unapologetic fan of the franchise, what say you, viewers?!

    6:00 p.m. — It’s OK, you can peek — WBTV gets Comic-Con off to a dramatic start for the seventh year in a row by hosting a special sneak peek, world-premiere screening event on Preview Night, debuting some of the most hotly anticipated new series of the year. For 2014, WBTV will screen the complete pilot episodes of The Flash, Constantine and iZombie. Additionally, Warner Bros. Animation will unveil a brand-new episode of Teen Titans Go! Ballroom 20

    The Flash: From the Arrow creative team of executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and director David Nutter, The Flash is a fast-paced super hero drama based upon the characters from DC Comics that follows the high-speed adventures of the Fastest Man Alive. With a pilot written by Berlanti, Kreisberg and DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, the action drama follows police scientist and everyday guy Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), who, after an unexpected Particle Accelerator accident, is suddenly charged with the ability to move at incredible speeds, which he uses to help the people of Central City.

    Constantine: Based upon the characters from DC Comics and executive produced by Daniel Cerone (Dexter) and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight films), Constantine reflects the lore of the fan-favorite comic, combining noirish storytelling with the evolving mythology of John Constantine (Matt Ryan), a morally challenged character who doesn’t come down on the side of either good or evil … but ultimately might be the only thing defending us against the dark forces from beyond.

    iZombie: Co-created and executive produced by Rob Thomas & Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars), along with executive producers Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge (also of Veronica Mars), Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a 25-year-old medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life … until she’s turned into a zombie. Liv transfers her residency to the coroner’s office for access to the brains she must reluctantly eat, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she now solves homicides to quiet the voices in her head. iZombie is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred for Vertigo.

    Teen Titans Go!: Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Beast Boy and Raven continue the fun in Teen Titans Go! with all-new comedic adventures, giving viewers a look at what life is really like as a teen super hero … once the cape comes off.
