Check out Krueger - The Slasher from Elm Street right here, right now. This guy can totally slay the role of Freddy. Lord knows he has the look!

The project stars Roberto Lombardi as Freddy Krueger before he was burned, and Lombardi actually does a pretty convincing job in the role. He is quite creepy trolling the playground and attempting to kidnap a young girl named Suzy (played by Brenna Lakatos).

bloody disgusting - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 17:38

Warners and Legendary has released a brand new synopsis for Godzilla, in theaters May 16.

From visionary new director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless.

Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, Yuki Morita, and C.J. Adams star in the pic rated PG-13 for “intense sequences of destruction, mayhem and creature violence…

In addition, here’s the official image gallery for Into the Storm, directed by Final Destination 5‘s Steven Quale.

In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes.

Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot. Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, “Into the Storm” throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.

Twisted Music Video Of The Week Vol. 130: Portishead "The Rip"

bloody disgusting - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 17:30

While going through my list of potential twisted music videos, I saw that I’d saved Portishead‘s “The Rip”. I didn’t exactly remember why I saved it so I popped it on and everything came rushing back. It’s a haunting video, one that tackles a great many themes of destruction, disdain, and abandonment. It’s also done in a very old school and organic fashion. Animator Nick Uff drew each frame completely by hand on 16mm film.

He states, “Each frame has to be different, animated films cannot stand still. That means they can be quite difficult on the eye, especially in the style I use, it’s very busy, a bit scratchy.” [Source]

So head below to enjoy this somber song from the groups third studio album, appropriately named Third.

Burbank Art Show Gives Tribute to John Carpenter!

bloody disgusting - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 16:31

Los Angeles-based readers looking for something cool to do this weekend? Show your appreciation to art, bubblegum and John Carpenter at the Hyaena Gallery in Burbank.

This weekend they put on display the “All Out of Bubblegum!” exhibit, giving homage to the works of John Carpenter.

The first haunting musical notes during the opening credits to the 1978 classic film Halloween literally send chills down your spine. You’ve just watched a six-year-old Michael Myers murder his sister, and John Carpenter’s unsettling piano melody will forever cement the association of our beloved autumn holiday with his inhuman cinematic demon. Few directors can create these lifelong memories for film fans; yet, John Carpenter has done it throughout his career, populating our awareness with his iconic heroes and villains.

From Snake Plisskin’s grunted one-liners to Jack Burton’s witty braggadocio, we are immersed and invested in these character archetypes. We are there when Christine takes care of the shitters. We are there, watching in terror, when bodies rupture and sprout tendrils in the Antarctic wasteland. We are there when Hot Rod Nada puts on the sunglasses and wakes up to reality. Writer, director, musician… John Carpenter has inspired artists of every discipline. He has taught us about storytelling, how to create suspense visually and aurally, and even about the need for humor.

The influence is evident when you look around Hyaena Gallery and see the art on our walls. The realm of dark and pop art owes a sincere thank you to John Carpenter for stirring our imagination and fears throughout the years. It is an honor, on Hyaena gallery’s eight-year anniversary, to pay tribute to a man who is not only a Master of Horror but in truth a master of craft.

All Out of Bubblegum! A Tribute to John Carpenter contains works by the following artists: Chet Zar, Clint Carney, D.W. Frydendall, James Bonner, Jeff Rebner, Mark Covell, Joe Vaux, Mick Cassidey, Char Hall, Nicolas Caesar, Wyatt Teitzel, The Creep, Lou Rusconi, Megan Kelly, Phil Joyce, Kat Philbin, Big Tasty, Adam Padilla, Donnie Green, Kyle Abernethy, Michael Kelleher, Robert Heckman, Matthew J. Levin, Stanislav, Jeremy Cross, Rannie Rodil, and more.

    [TV] Scenes From "Salem": Who Torments Mercy Lewis?!

    bloody disgusting - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 16:06

    Mercy Lewis is being tormented by people in masks. But before she can reveal their identity she’s whisked away into the dark…

    The mystery will be revealed when “Salem” premieres Sunday April 20 at 10/9c on WGN America.

    On an expansive set reflecting volatile 17th century Massachusetts, “Salem” explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them.

    “Salem” stars Janet Montgomery (“Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”) as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress – and Alden’s onetime love interest; Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”) as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden; Seth Gabel (“Fringe”) as local aristocrat Cotton Mather who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; Xander Berkeley (“Nikita,” “The Mentalist”) as chief politician Magistrate Hale; Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”) as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; and Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis.

    In “Salem,” witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.

    Check out a few stills and the trailer for Indigenous, which premieres as part of Tribeca's Midnight section. Its screening schedule can be found below the synopsis.

    Synopsis
    A group of five American friends on the cusp of adulthood travel to Panama to relax and reconnect. They befriend a local woman in their hotel bar, and despite some ominous whispers, she goes against the specific instructions of her brother and takes the Americans on a day trip into the pristine falls at the nearby jungle. What begins as an innocent outing to a picturesque waterfall quickly turns terrifying after she suddenly goes missing. As night closes in, the friends realize too late the truth behind the rumors—the legendary, blood-sucking Chupacabra is now stalking them.

    NOT SAFE FOR WORK: First Look at Zombie Film The Epidemic

    Dread Central - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 15:38

    Know what irritates the hell out of us? When people throw white makeup on the faces of their friends, splash them with stage blood, tell them to run really fast, film it, and then call it a zombie movie. So many indie filmmakers have done just that. However, Nigel Hartwell is NOT one of them.

    We get sent a lot of indie projects to look at around these parts from filmmakers trying to raise money for their movies. We spare you the majority of them because 95% of them will either never get made, are just plain lazy looking, or don't spark our interest.

    After sitting through Hartwell's truly ambitious sales trailer for his film The Epidemic, we've gotta say, "We're sold!" Sure, it's rough around the edges, but the guy has something big and cool in mind. The best part? It's NOT SAFE FOR WORK! That's right, horndogs! Here's your chance to add a bit of boobage to your afternoon!

    Hartwell also has a cast in place which includes Danny Trejo (of course), Corey Feldman, Larry Zerner, and more!

    When it comes to horror movies, the focus is usually on demons, ghosts, monsters, or slashers... but there's another kind of evil out there. One who's silently watching and listening... one with the ability to make people just disappear. One that reared its ugly head in 1971.

    Not sure how Dread-worthy this will be, if at all, as thrillers can be sketchy, but we will report back if there's a need to.

    From the Press Release
    New York City actor Rich Graff, who recently starred alongside Heather Graham in the rom-com feature film directed by Anthony Edwards My Dead Boyfriend, is gearing up for the world premiere of the dark paranoia fueled thriller 1971, where he morphed himself into daring activist John Raines.

    Directed and written by Johanna Hamilton (Pray the Devil Back to Hell) and narrated by John Raines himself, 1971 follows eight ordinary citizens who plotted an intricate break-in of an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania, to leak stolen documents and expose the illegal surveillance of ordinary Americans in an era of anti-war activism.

    In this riveting heist story Graff plays John Raines, one of the key members of the Citizens’ Commission who not only drove one of the getaway cars but also planned the rollout after the break-in, including the release of documents to the press. During the making of 1971 the perpetrators reveal themselves for the first time, reflecting on their actions and raising broader questions surrounding security leaks in activism today.

    Aside from his leading role as John Raines in 1971, Rich Graff stars in the horror/drama Manson Girls by the award-winning director Susanna Lo and can be seen in the drama-thriller Track 3, set to be screened at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival. Graff has also been featured on major US network TV shows including "30 Rock" and "Law and Order: Criminal Intent."
