Young, High and Dead… does that title sound like the story of your life? For those that can relate to it, be sure to check out the British horror/slasher flick which hit VOD on Halloween.
Young, High and Dead was written and directed by Luke Brady and co-directed by Jonathan Brady, Portia Barnett-Herrin, Daniel Fenton and Thabo Mhlatshwa. It stars Hannah Tointon, Louisa Lytton, Philip Barantini, Nigel Boyle and Matthew Stathers.
To celebrate a recent engagement, a group of five friends embark on a camping trip they will never return from. Deep in the forest the group pitch their tents next to the grave of a local missing child. As the killer watches them, it’s not long before a night of drinking and drugs turns into a waking nightmare. When the group awakes in the early hours, they find themselves shackled and chained to trees. Will the group stick and work together in order to exit the situation and the forest alive? Or will the killer leave them all Young, High and Dead?
Our Mr. Dark got an early look at Matthan Harris' The Inflicted (review here) at the 2012 Texas Frighmare Weekend, and now the film's making a run at this year's American Film Market with some updated sales art and a new trailer.
TomCat Films is taking the psychological thriller to AFM. It's written, produced, and directed by Matthan Harris and stars horror icons Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects), Sid Haig (House of 1000 Corpses), Doug Bradley (Hellraiser), and Giovanni Lombardo Radice (City of the Living Dead).
Harris also appears as the film's serial killer, David O'Hara. Lindsay Hightower, Charles Duran, Gerardo Davila, Amy Erin Amory, Matt Socia, Terry Spector, Ka Beesler, Allison Victoria, and Ian Maurer co-star.
In 1992 six-year-old David O’Hara witnessed his father, Richard O’Hara, murder his two-year-old sister in Waco, Texas. David also lost his mother two years prior when she died while giving birth to his sister. In adulthood David becomes a psychopath, like his father, and starts kidnapping young women while enrolled in a medical school in Dallas.
David rapes and impregnates one of his victims, Melissa Daniels, in an attempt to replace the family that he lost as a young boy. However, the Dallas Police track down the location of David’s warehouse and rescue Melissa. Enraged, David seeks guidance from his estranged father, and they devise a plan to reclaim David’s "family." Meanwhile, the FBI has added David to their Most Wanted list and joins forces with the Dallas Police in order to catch him. David is hell-bent on getting custody of his baby, Jessica, and he goes on a murderous rampage in an attempt to get her back.

We're back with the third installment in our Tabletop Terrors series, and if you're looking to embark on a supernatural adventure in the comfort of your own home, Flying Frog's A Touch of Evil is the game for you!
Flying Frog Productions makes incredibly cinematic board games designed to evoke the feelings of genre films we all love. Using a signature style of artwork featuring photographs of models in full makeup and costumes rather than artwork, their games immediately put you in the movies you love to watch.
In Last Night on Earth, it's your group of survivors versus the zombie apocalypse in a setting reminiscent of the early undead classics. In Invasion from Outer Space, you're dropped in the middle of a Martian invasion of Earth right out of a 1950's drive-in flick.
A Touch of Evil, then, is a Hammer horror masterpiece brought to life in a board game.
The year is 1799, and monsters run wild in the new nation of America. The town of Shadowbrook is beset by a supernatural menace that has infiltrated its populace and feeds on its citizens with impunity. Thankfully, you have arrived: monster hunters prepared to combat the evil and save the town from a terrible fate.
High collars, highwaymen, and classic creatures are the name of the game in A Touch of Evil, all with a Grand Guignol, Gothic feel.
Players are the hunters. As with all Flying Frog games, players choose a character to play in the game. Each character has special abilities and different statistics to aid them in their hunt, and over time they will accumulate items and weapons to protect themselves and attack the seemingly endless waves of horrors infesting Shadowbrook.

At the beginning of the game, a primary villain is selected. Options in the core set include an animated scarecrow, a vampire, a werewolf, and my personal favorite: the Headless Horseman! Each villain has special abilities and attacks that are triggered during a turn at the end of each round of play. They also have a set of minion creatures that are generated by the game to harass and attack our heroes.
Players can work against each other to try to be the first to defeat the boss villain or, using a co-operative variant, can work together against a much tougher villain in a grand final all-or-nothing battle.
As hunters move around the board using a dice in traditional board game style, they investigate locations, gain gold, and fight minions. Their goal is to locate the lair of the villain and build their forces enough to attack and kill it successfully. The town itself is available to them to build their stats, buy items from a blacksmith, and heal wounds.
The town also has six elders. An elder can be selected to form a hunting party when a player attacks the villain it its lair, but there's a problem: Some of the elders have been corrupted by the villain! If a corrupt elder is chosen, they turn traitor and attack with the villain. Investigating the elders to discover their secrets is another task the players must do while they track the villain, lest their final attack is betrayed and they meet a grisly fate.
As with most Flying Frog games, a "doom counter" clicks up each round, and the villain wins if the hunters have not killed it by the time the clock runs out.
Attacks and some story events are resolved using "stat checks" similar to role-playing games. Rolling against various stats the characters possess, modified by items and skills, decide whether they find a treasure or a trap, hit a minion or are hit by one, and other events. Searching some of the locations in the game uncovers cards specific to that location that move the story forward and bring either fortune or ill to our band of hunters.
This is where the story comes in. Each card has "flavor" text explaining what happens to the player who pulls the card. As the game progresses, these cards tell a story of what's happening in the story being played. Evidence of the lair's location might be found, or an artifact of great power could be located. An ally could be attained to accompany a hunter, or a cache of weapons or gold could be uncovered.
By the time you finish a game of A Touch of Evil, you'll have played through a unique horror "film" beginning to end. The best comparison I can make is an episode of "Supernatural" set in the 18th century. In fact, if Flying Frog ever wanted to dabble in licenses, there's a "Supernatural" board game in here they could create with some new art assets.
Flying Frog games have two features beyond the high quality and unique photographic elements to make them one of my favorite game companies. First, each game comes with a soundtrack CD to accompany the gameplay. The music sets the mood perfectly, creating a much more immersive experience. Second, they always make several expansions for each title. A Touch of Evil has two large expansions that provide a new board to add to the existing town of Shadowbrook as well as new cards, heroes, and villains. Adding these two expansions effectively triples the size of the board! They also have "hero packs" that contain new heroes and a new villain to give even more play. Finally, they have several free villains on their website to print yourself, including a demonic nutcracker for holiday gaming!
A Touch of Evil is a fantastic experience for two or more players who enjoy the classic Hammer films set during the days of muskets and sabers. It's a game of medium complexity that isn't terribly difficult to set up or play. Players with experience in RPG's will get started faster than others as they'll be familiar with stat checks and management. It only takes about as much room as a game of Monopoly with the base set but gets quite large if you start adding the big expansion boards, so be ready if you purchase those.
Pro Tip: I advise adding a copy of "A Touch of Evil" by Judas Priest to your game soundtrack. It provides the perfect end credits song to the experience.
Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with industrial metal heavyweights Psyclon Nine to bring you an exclusive first listen to “Shadows Unveiled”, which comes from the band’s upcoming album Order Of The Shadow: Act 1 (out November 12th via Metropolis Records). The track is a terrifying wall of evil noise pierced by demonic vocals, a mechanical apocalypse clawing its way into your subconsciousness and ripping it to shreds.
From Nero Bellum, “When writing Shadows Unveiled, I had intended to really bridge the gap in between our previous album, We the Fallen, and Order of the Shadow : Act I musically and thematically while setting up the concept of the entirety of Order. It essentially represents the convening of the titles namesake faction and the opening doctrine of the lead character “The Saint” as he divulges a new gospel unto his congregation. Musically, I wanted to encapsulate the elements that would allow this piece to become an apocalyptic prayer / war cry. All together, I wanted to create something that would be worth singing along to… A collective invocation of an end time.”
It's the first Monday on the way to Halloween 2014, and right now we have an exclusive look at the home video box art for Insidious: Chapter 2 as well as all the release details. Read on!
From the Press Release
The famed horror team of director James Wan (Saw, The Conjuring) and writer Leigh Whannell (Saw, Saw III) reunite with the original cast in the highly anticipated, spine-tingling follow-up INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2, debuting December 24 on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Fans can delve deeper into “The Further” with more than an hour of bonus materials exclusive to the Blu-ray Combo Pack, including a three-part webisode called “Insidious: Spectral Sightings,” which gives an inside look at the business operations of Specs and Tucker from their early days as paranormal investigators through their investigation with Elise. Cast and crew highlights are also included in the three additional behind-the-scenes featurettes available exclusively on the Blu-ray Combo Pack, including a discussion about making INSIDIOUS 2 and what it was like to film at a haunted location. Fans can unlock secrets from this suspense thriller through two additional featurettes available on both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD. “Peripheral Vision: Behind the Scenes” takes fans onto the set of the film to see how it was created, and “Ghostly Transformation” follows the make-up effects used to create the ghosts in The Further.
INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 has a running time of approximately 106 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of terror and violence and thematic elements.
How deep into the darkness will you go to discover the truth? The terrifying sequel to Insidious follows the haunted Lambert family as they seek to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world. They must rely on familiar allies to exile the demons that follow them and unearth the secret before the evil continues its deadly rampage. Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, and Barbara Hershey reprise their roles in the film directed by James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring). Directed by Wan from a story by Wan and Leigh Whannell and a screenplay by Leigh Whannell, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 was produced by Jason Blum and Oren Peli. The executive producers are Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Charles Layton, and Steven Schneider.
Sexy scream queen Jacqui Holland (Dead Ringer, "Desperate Housewives," Monsters in the Woods) has signed to star in The Mangled, the first installment in an intended new horror franchise that boasts a salivating cast of horror icons.
The Kickstarter-funded project sees Holland (pictured) join an ensemble cast of recognizable horror favorites including Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes) and Kane Hodder (the Friday the 13th series).
Written, produced and directed by Lawrence W. Nelson II, The Mangled tells the bloody tale of a family celebrating a 25th anniversary on a rainy night in southern Texas when four twenty-somethings come pounding on their door desperate for help. And one of them serious injured. But as the night goes on, we find out the Bates family members have secrets of their own.
As a testament to the film's appeal and its exciting cast, the film's budget has already been raised on Kickstarter - with some 40 days to go!
Before beginning work on The Mangled, Holland will appear as Freya in the Thor film God of Thunder, released in December. She recently filmed a role in Joe Carnahan's upcoming Stretch.
Just in time for this year's AFM (get used to hearing that a lot this month), we have the first word and sales trailer for the new indie flick Morning Star from Luca Boni and Marco Ristori. Check it out along with a bit of artwork.
Adrian Bouchet, Mike Mitchell, Daniel Vivian, Ivy Corbin, David White, Rosella Elmi, and Ally McClelland star.
What's it all about? Why, fighting evil of course! You know... evil. It can be pesky. Especially medieval type evil. That's the worst kind. In any event, check out the trailer below, and look for more soon!
After a pitched battle a man is on his way back home, but it is just the beginning of a journey in a forgotten and dark world. He will meet weird and evil characters and fight for his freedom. Only at the end of his path the man will discover that the world in which he lived has changed forever.
Ladies and gentlemen, step right up! Hurry! Hurry! It's time for you to take your first peek into the latest circus of horrors from the UK, The Midnight Horror Show! They will tear more than your tickets at the door!
From the Press Release

Deimos' daughter Venus is also in the show as a burlesque dancer. But behind the curtain there is something more sinister going on than simple entertainment. Dare you enter The Midnight Horror Show? You'll never get out alive!
THE MIDNIGHT HORROR SHOW is written, produced and directed by Welsh filmmaker Andrew Jones. Shooting took place throughout October in South Wales, UK. The cast features Jared Morgan as Doctor Deimos, Lee Bane as Janus, Nathan Head as Trinculo, Shireen Ashton as Venus and Sam Harding as Apollo.

Here’s the translation: “We worked this sequence with Eli Roth y Nicolas Lopez for the new production of Sobras International Pictures, The Green Inferno. They asked us for something subtle, solid and elegant to steer away from the guts and gore that are always present in the movie.”
Mike Pereira wrote this positive review out of this past September’s world premiere at TIFF. Open Road acquired to release in 2014.
In the film, a group of student activists 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.
YouTuber 331Erock is responsible for taking some of the biggest hits at a current time and giving them a badass metal twist. But for Halloween this year he aimed his six-string talents at the past and tackled one of video games most horrifying, terrifying franchises: Silent Hill. Shredding his way through several of Akira Yamaoka’s compositions from Silent Hill 1 and Silent Hill 2, he even took the time to don a Pyramid Head costume for a section that involves some blisteringly fast legato and tapping skills.
Head on down to see the guitar madness.
More end of the week goodness has arrived in the fashion of an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from Brian De Palma's latest thriller, Passion, starring Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams. Dig it!
Two beautiful young corporate executives engage in a dangerous and tantalizing competition that will take a deeply personal and violent turn in PASSION, the wildly received new thriller from suspense master Brian De Palma. The film, starring Rachel McAdams (as she's never been seen before) and Noomi Rapace, arrives on high-definition Blu-ray and DVD on November 5, 2013, from eOne. The SRPs are, respectively, $29.98 and $24.98.
Forty years after his breakthrough thriller Sisters put him in the suspense/horror pantheon, Brian De Palma returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of Dressed to Kill and Body Double with PASSION, an erotic thriller fueled by sex, ambition and the murderous side of passion. Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace star as two female executives whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cutthroat.
Christine (McAdams, The Notebook, Sherlock Holmes) is a driven, devious executive at the sleek Berlin office of an international advertising agency. When her ambitious but outwardly shy subordinate Isabelle (Rapace, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Prometheus) comes up with a brilliant ad campaign for a smartphone, Christine shamelessly takes credit for it, hoping it will bring her a promotion and a transfer to the New York office.
While appearing strangely forgiving, Isabelle in fact takes her elaborate revenge on her superior - which leads Christine to counterattack by setting up her own elaborate scheme to ultimately get her way. The teasing sexual interplay between the two women adds another layer of deception as De Palma employs all his stylistic flair to keep viewers on edge right up to the shocking climax.
The Blu-ray and DVD from eOne both contain bonus features, including interviews with director De Palma and stars McAdams and Rapace.
Here’s the slated first one-sheet for John Suits’ The Scribbler, starring Katie Cassidy (NOES 2010), and also stars Garret Dillahunt (The Last House On The Left ’09 ), Michelle Trachtenberg (“Buffy”), Eliza Dushku (Wrong Turn), Gina Gershon (Killer Joe), Michael Imperioli (Oldboy ’13), Billy Campbell (“The Killing”), Kunal Nayyar (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Sasha Grey (The Girlfriend Experience).
“‘The Scribbler’, based on the graphic novel, concerns Suki (Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using “The Siamese Burn”, an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being “cured”, she’s haunted by a thought… what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?“
AICN landed the sales trailer premiere of the Lucky McKee (The Woman, May) and The Lost director Chris Sivertson’s hotly anticipated All Cheerleaders Die, which was recently picked up by Image Entertainment for US distribution.
“When tragedy rocks Blackfoot High, rebellious outsider Mäddy Killian shocks the student body by joining the cheerleading squad. This decision drives a rift between Mäddy and her ex-girlfriend Leena Miller – a loner who claims to practice the dark arts. After a confrontation with the football team, Mäddy and her new cheerleader friends are sent on a supernatural roller coaster ride which leaves a path of destruction none of them may be able to escape.”

Below we have the official promo as well as a sneak peak at the fifth episode of the ongoing zombie series.
Actor Shia LeBeouf took to Twitter today to tease fans of a new project he's been working on. Though no exact details have been announced just yet, we do have some tasty morsels to share with you should you read on. Which you should, by the way.
LaBeouf tweeted out the first page of a script called Kill the Architect along with the message - "A hungry dog hunts best.#killthearchitect @Cagewm @eliroth @ASAPYams @ChillerTV @marilynmanson We start in January." Pretty interesting company tagged in that tweet, no?
As far as we can tell, this is some sort of film project inspired by Cage's album of the same name. How Eli Roth, Marilyn Manson, and Chiller TV factor in remains to be seen. Stay tuned, kids!

The Scribbler concerns Suki (Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using "The Siamese Burn," an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities.

Wow, after the bombshell from Carol last week, we had no idea where this show would be heading to next. Who knew a simple "Yes" could have such an impact? Talk about an evolution of character! Episode 4.04 "Indifference" was written by Matt Negrete and directed by Tricia Brock.
SPOILER ALERT: Do not read any further if you haven’t watched the episode yet. This is a recap with specific details from this episode. Continue only if you have already watched it.
While Rick was prepping for a food and medicine run, Carol went to see a hopeful Lizzy. At the same time, Rick was imagining how Carol killed the sickly Karen, dragged her body out to the yard and burned the corpses. Carol urged Lizzy to protect herself and her sister and not be afraid to kill. When Rick found a knife missing from a set, we found that Carol had given it to Lizzy. When Lizzy accidentally called Carol mom, she scolded Lizzy to not call her that again. Carol also showed Lizzy how not to be afraid and fight through the fear. "And then one day, you just change. We all change." Was that what happened to Carol?
When we came back from commercial break, Tyreese washed the blood and guts off his shirt while the others planned their next steps.
Rick and Carol drove without talking for a while. Carol described why she did what she did. "I had to try. Somebody had to," said Carol. Rick was skeptical but kept mostly quiet.
During the search in the woods, Daryl continue to give Michonne a hard time for not staying with the group.
Rick and Carol parked in a suburban neighborhood and started their search for medicine and food.
Daryl and the group found an abandoned car and tried to hot-wire it but they needed a new battery. They then tried to clear the overgrowth off a building with Tyreese taking out his frustration while clearing a path. And then they were attacked by walkers reaching out at them. With Michonne's katana action, they mostly got rid of these walkers but at one point, Tyreese refused to let go of his attacking walker. Why did he not let go, Michonne asked.
Rick and Carol entered an abandoned house. As they started to explore, Carol heard a walker coming down from upstairs. When the walker tripped and fell down the stairs, Rick pulled Carol to safety. After getting her bearings back, Carol promptly knifed the fallen walker in the brain while Rick observed. More sounds came from upstairs and Rick readied his gun as the upstairs door creaked open and a couple of humans came out offering them fruit.
The two people, Sam and Ana, were in the greenhouse nearby that had fruit before they were chased here by the walkers. When Sam complained about his dislocated shoulder, Carol took the reins to reset his shoulder. Rick observed from the back and was impressed by Carol's taking charge.
Daryl and Bob found a car battery while Tyreese and Michonne continue to clear the fallen tree from the car. Michonne lectured him about anger. "Anger makes you stupid." She was angry about the Governor but not any longer, although she still couldn't explain why she kept going after him.
While Rick and Carol were cleaning up the house of food and medicine, Sam and Ana wanted to join them back at the prison. They wanted to help and Carol suggested they scope out the neighborhood for more supplies even though while Rick was apprehensive about it, he finally agreed.
Watching Daryl fixing the car, Bob confessed his guilt about causing the accident at the Big Spot supermarket when Zack got killed. He had a drinking problem and tried to stop himself with the bottle when the shelf came down, causing the mayhem. After getting the car to start, Daryl then told Bob that what happened at the supermarket was an accident and wasn't anyone's fault.
Raiding another house's medicine cabinet, Rick asked Carol if they did the right thing to let Sam and Ana join them. Carol was hopeful about them. Then Carol confronted Rick to talk about what she did. While Rick was more driven by morals, Carol was more pragmatic. "You don't have to like what I did, Rick, I don't. You just accept it." Wow, Melissa McBride is killing it this episode as Carol!
Daryl and the group got to the veterinarian school and started their search inside.
When Rick asked Carol how she knew how to reset a dislocated shoulder, she said she learned it herself online so she could fix herself up when she was a battered wife. Picking tomatoes, they talked about their losses. She had accepted Sophia's death while Rick talked about still expecting Lori to be there in the morning next to him. Another powerful scene by Carol and Rick.
Then they came upon Ana's body being devoured by walkers. Carol just accepted it and suggested they go find Sam.
After collecting everything they came for, Daryl and the group started to leave when they were chased by walkers.
Back at the first house, Rick and Carol waited for Sam. Though Rick wanted to wait a little longer, Carol knew they couldn't wait any longer and they had to go. "It was a nice watch," she said, about the timepiece Rick had given Sam when they parted.
The group at the school continued to fight their way out when Bob fell and got his pack grabbed by the walkers. When he refused to let go, the group helped to rescue him and his pack. That was when they saw the alcohol inside. "It's for when it gets quiet," said Bob. Daryl would have none of that but let Bob keep the alcohol, and they marched off.
After packing up the car, Rick finally confronted Carol. That exchange, while not intense, sure packed a wallop. Recapping it would not do it justice. Go watch it. At the end, Rick dropped Carol's pack on the ground.
Michonne took over driving the group back and agreed with Daryl, she didn't need to go looking for the Governor anymore. He approved.
Rick helped Carol pack her own car and she gave him her watch before she drove off on her own.
Wow, is that the end of Carol? Melissa McBride is definitely the performer of the week in this episode.
Hey, friends to the end! It's time for you to pick up your mobile devices and rampage your way through a gaggle of hapless victims as a new gameplay trailer for Chucky: Slash and Dash has arrived!
The lunacy is available on the App store now for just $.99! Buy it now and, as a limited-time offer, you get "Tiffany" and a golden knife.
In the game, Chucky is stuck in a never-ending nightmare in which he’s endlessly running through the factory that produces Good Guys dolls. Players will control Chucky while sprinting through the factory floor, the catwalks, the warehouse, or even outside, and will need to avoid conveyor belts, forklifts, acid pools, barrels and other obstacles. Chucky can also eliminate security guards patrolling the factory using his classic knife or other more outlandish weapons like a cleaver, screwdriver, or hatchet. As they play, gamers will collect batteries that can be used to purchase in-game items or power-ups, such as a double battery bonus, a fast start, or extra lives that can extend a run after dying.
