    The Mars Volta's 'De-loused In The Comatorium' Coming To Vinyl

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 16:00

    Music On Vinyl has announced that it will be releasing De-loused In The Comatorium, the 2003 debut album from progressive rock band The Mars Volta. The album got a limited vinyl release when it came out, so this is pretty awesome news for fans and collectors alike, especially considering that the first 3,500 copies are individually numbered and pressed on gold vinyl.

    The album is co-produced by Rick Rubin and The Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. As Eva Gardner, the original bassist, parted ways with the band, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea is featured at bass guitar player on the album.

    Pre-orders are already available through SoundStageDirect.

    WGN Taps Justin Lin to Furnish Their Radiant Doors

    Dread Central - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 15:53

    Ah, the future. Who knows what it holds. Wonders? Horrors? Both? One way to find out would be to have someone time travel back to us and give us the skinny, but who knows what kind of butterfly effect that would cause? Enter the new series from WGN America.

    Not sure how Dread-worthy this will turn out to be but Deadline is reporting that Gaumont International Television ("Hannibal") has teamed with filmmaker Justin Lin and his Perfect Storm Entertainment for "Radiant Doors."

    The project, from writer Jeremy Doner ("The Killing"), has received a script against a series commitment, meaning that it would go straight to series if the pilot script gets WGN’s approval. Lin is set to direct and executive produce with Doner and Perfect Storm’s Danielle Woodrow and Troy Craig Poon with Ryan Andolina serving as co-producer.

    An adaptation of the short story by Michael Swanwick which was featured in his Tales of Old Earth collection, "Radiant Doors" is described as a gripping drama series exploring how our society deals with the sudden arrival of a flood of refugees from a dystopian future.

    “We have been wanting to work with both Justin and Jeremy and are so happy to have them come together on this project,” said GIT CEO Katie O’Connell. “The award-winning short story really captivated all of us with its transcendent themes.

    Both WGN America and GIT are in the straight-to-series business. WGN’s first original drama, "Salem," premieres April 20.

    Writer Jeff Buhler Sheds Light on Grudge Remake

    Dread Central - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 15:07

    We told you that there was a remake or reboot or re-imagining or whatever they're calling it now of The Grudge a few weeks back, and today some details as to just what this flick will be have come to light.

    Writer Jeff Buhler spoke with FEARnet recently about what we should expect...

    "We’re not approaching this as a remake of the Sarah Michelle Gellar film or a remake of the Ju-on film,” stated Buhler. “This is pushing the mythology forward while keeping the concepts and spirit of those movies, yet finding a new way to tell a story within that world, which is exciting.

    Buhler also stated that the film will be home to "new characters, new ghost, and a new mythology. I’m not really at a liberty to say anything more than that for obvious reasons, as we are still in the scripting process. I think letting fans of the original series know that we are not going back to (the character of) Kayako and trying to mine what’s already been mined is important (though). We are still very early in the process.”

    The original reboot of the 2004 Takashi Shimizu film starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, cost around $10 million, grossed $187 million worldwide, and hatched two sequels. It was based on the Japanese horror thriller Ju-on by Shimizu. The new one will be produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Taka Ichise with Roy Lee, Doug Davison, Joe Drake, and Nathan Kahane exec producing.

    [Interview] Rory Cochrane and Katee Sackhoff Talk the Horror of 'Oculus'!

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 15:00

    Relativity’s Oculus (review), directed by Mike Flanagan hits theaters on April 11th. The film has many, many people championing it and I’m quite confident it’ll hit the sweet spot for most of you guys.

    I recently sat down with stars Rory Cochrane and Katee Sackhoff to talk about the most challenging moments during filming and what it was like being a part of a separate timeline from the other two protagonists. Neither Sackhoff or I were feeling particularly well on this day, something you can probably glean from the first exchange in this interview.

    The story centers on a murder that left two children orphans with authorities charging the brother while his sister believed that the true culprit was a haunted antique mirror. Now completely rehabilitated and in his twenties, the brother is ready to move on but his sister is determined to prove that the haunted mirror was responsible for destroying their family.” Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Annalise Basso and Garrett Ryan also star.

    What If Jurassic Park Was Listed on Business Review Site Yelp?

    Dread Central - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 14:42

    If the Jurassic Park franchise has taught us anything, it's that the idea of a dinosaur-filled amusement park is a much better one on paper than it is in reality. Death and destruction are not exactly what parents are after when they take their kids to theme parks...

    So as you might imagine, the reviews for such a place wouldn't exactly be raving.

    In this hilarious image we spotted over on the website Mandatory, someone imagined a world wherein Jurassic Park is a real place and is listed on business review site Yelp.

    What would visitors have to say about their experience after returning home? Well, let's just say that the folks who return home are the lucky ones!

    The Jurassic Park franchise continues with Jurassic World, set to hit theaters June 12, 2015. Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) penned the script with Derek Connolly and directs. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Pat Crowley produce.

    Borgman Sheds His Clothes in New Stills

    Dread Central - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 14:37

    Yesterday we shared with you the creepy trailer for Alex van Warmerdam’s Borgman, which has proven itself to be a hit on the festival circuit. A June 6th release date has been given to the flick, and on tap for you today is an image gallery full of hairy male nudity. Sound good?! Then dig in!

    Jan Bijvoet, Hadewych Minis, Jeroen Perceval, Sara Hjort Ditlevsen, Eva van de Wijdeven, Annet Malherbe, and Tom Dewispelaere star.

    Synopsis
    Borgman is the central character in Alex van Warmerdam’s dark, malevolent fable. Is he a dream or a demon, a twisted allegory or an all-too-real embodiment of our fears? Borgman is a sinister arrival in the sealed-off streets of modern suburbia. His presence unleashes a crowing gallery of distortion around the careful facade constructed by an arrogant, comfortable couple, their three children, and nanny.

    Black Fawn Set To Release 'Discopath' on DVD

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 14:36

    After selling out its World Premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival, DISCOPATH has travelled the world leaving its ‘70s era disco stamp on festivals from Brazil to Brussels. Now, the Canadian horror feature has found a home on DVD through Black Fawn Distribution. Durango Pictures has awarded the Canadian home video rights for the award winning slasher DISCOPATH to Black Fawn Distribution, to be released on DVD in Canada on June 10th, while Juice Distribution will release the film through iTunes on April 29th.

    In the debut feature film from director Renaud Gauthier, a timid young New Yorker in the mid-70s leads an uneventful life until he is fatefully exposed to the pulsating rhythms of a brand-new genre of music: Disco! Unable to control his murderous impulses that stem from a traumatic childhood experience, Duane Lewis transforms into a dangerous serial killer exiled to Montreal.

    DISCOPATH celebrated its World Premiere at the 2013 Fantasia International Film Festival followed by numerous other festival screenings around the world including Beyond Fest (Los Angeles), Fright Fest (London, UK) and The Blood in the Snow Film Fest (Toronto) where it took home Best Film, Best Actor and Best Screenplay honors.

    “We went to see DISCOPATH because of the buzz it had received,” states Black Fawn Distribution’s Sales Manager CF Benner. “We were literally blown away because it’s a very unique film experience. It’s dark, it’s funny, and you’ll find it hard to wrap your head around the fact that this film wasn’t made over 30 years ago. Renaud’s attention to detail is really quite amazing and we knew right away that we
    wanted horror fans everywhere to experience DISCOPATH the same way we did.”

    Critically acclaimed for its realistic feel and setting, reviewers have been quick to point out DISCOPATH’s authentic presentation and dark comedic framework.

    “Amidst a sea of films attempting to recapture the glories of bygone exploitation fare, DISCOPATH gets it right,” says Michael Gingold of Fangoria while AintItCool.com declared that “DISCOPATH is fun from kooky start to its absolutely batshit finish.”

    The DISCOPATH DVD will include the following bonus features:
    - Commentary by Director Renaud Gauthier
    - Behind the Scenes Feature
    - Music Player Featuring Songs From the Film

    [Exclusive] New Poster For Hyper-Violent ‘The Demolisher’

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 14:33

    Post by BigJ

    Latefox Pictures will be slamming into production with The Demolisher, scheduled to begin shooting late Spring 2014. Directed by Gabriel Carrer, The Demolisher chronicles the story of a man named Bruce (Ry Barrett), an ordinary repairman tormented by a crippling sense of responsibility for his disabled wife Samantha (Tianna Nori), a former policewoman and survivor of a gang-related assault. Bruce’s increasing hyper-sensitivity to the injustice suffered by his wife steers him down a dark path of vigilantism. His rapidly disintegrating mental health, paranoia and overwhelming sense of condemnation, Bruce channels his inner-rage, punishing young woman, Marie (Jessica Vano), and finding refuge in a world of intense violence.

    The Demolisher is both a character study, and a psychological examination of trauma, resulting in an unapologetic portrayal of what can happen when a fragile mind is pushed too far. “The film is complex and character-driven, dealing with an outpouring of raw emotion,” said Gabriel Carrer, the film’s director and producer. “It delicately juggles our sympathetic nature and reactions to chance encounters, with the dangerous and addicted intoxication of violence, The film’s narrative pertains to the film industry, or any industry for that matter, and the level of abuse that can be endured” he concludes.

    Latefox Pictures’ The Demolisher stars Ry Barrett, who most recently played lead villain in Chad Archibald’s upcoming, The Drownsman; Tianna Nori, leading danger in Tricia Lee’s, Clean Break, and Jessica Vano, the tortured heroine in the upcoming, The Unabomber Manifesto.

    Award-winning cinematographer, Martin Buzora (Neverlost), who just completed the Oprah Winfrey Network series, To Catch a Killer, will capture the film’s fresh hyper-visual aesthetic and Gabriel Carrer will direct, a follow up role to last year’s acclaimed psychological thriller, In the House of Flies featuring Henry Rollins as the voice. The Demolisher is produced by Gabriel Carrer, Ry Barrett, AK Lamm, Andrew Bussey, Duane Frey, Christian Burgess, Martin Buzora, Nathan Hawkins and Andrew Wood.

    Get 'Lost In The Woods' With James Tynion IV

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 14:24

    James Tynion IV has a new teen horror series coming out from BOOM! Studios this May. Since Tynion IV hit the scene a few years ago, working alongside Scott Snyder on “Batman”, he’s really hit his stride. His political horror web comic, “The Eighth Seal” from Thrillbent delivers slow burning scares, and I can’t wait to see his take on teens in the woods. Joining him on art duties is Michael Dialynas, another up-and-comer who looks like a great fit for the genre.

    From the press release:

    April 8, 2014 – Los Angeles, CA – Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is excited to announce the May release of its newest ongoing series THE WOODS, a horror suspense title from creator and writer James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal, Red Hood and the Outlaws) and artist Michael Dialynas (Amala’s Blade, Spera). In THE WOODS, an entire high school campus with over 500 students, teachers, and staff suddenly vanishes and reappears in the middle of an alien-looking wilderness next to a towering, mysterious obelisk. Left to fend for themselves in a hostile environment, the group tries to find out where they are, why they’re there, and how to get back home.

    “James’ pitch for THE WOODS knocked me out of my shoes,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We’ve been passionate about bringing this story to comics from the jump and I’m proud to say that James’ story has surpassed even our lofty expectations. James and Michael have combined teen angst with high strangeness to create a slow-burning horror story that feels like what I love about Stephen King’s work. It’s completely gripping, and is equal parts mysterious, thought-provoking, and suspenseful.”

    WHY WE LOVE IT: As fans of James Tynion IV’s work in the Batman universe (Batman Eternal, Red Hood and the Outlaws), we were eager to publish his first original comic series for print. THE WOODS gives us that same eerie, small-town horror feel we get whenever we read a Stephen King novel.

    WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: James Tynion IV honed his writing craft by working with one of the best writers in comics—Batman scribe Scott Snyder—so you know he can craft a compelling tale. If you’re fan of teen conspiracy comics like Sheltered and Revival, you’ll immediately be sucked into THE WOODS.

    WHAT IT’S ABOUT: On October 16, 2013, 437 students, 52 teachers, and 24 additional staff from Bay Point Preparatory High School in suburban Milwaukee, WI vanished without a trace. Countless light years away, far outside the bounds of the charted universe, 513 people find themselves in the middle of an ancient, primordial wilderness. Where are they? Why are they there? The answers will prove stranger than anyone could possibly imagine.
    THE WOODS #1 arrives in comic shops on May 7th with a main cover by Ramón Peréz and a 1-in-10 variant by Matthew Woodson for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAR140952. A retailer incentive cover by Paul Duffield will also be available in limited quantities. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer? Use comicshoplocator.com or findacomicshop.com to find one! It’s also available for order directly from boom-studios.com.

    Full Cast For M. Night Shyamalan's Micro 'Sundowning'

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 14:04

    Doing some fact checking on M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening on IMDB, I noticed that they’ve filled in a bunch of holes for his top secret Sundowning, which is being pegged at the director’s first micro-budgeted feature (although, $5M doesn’t really sound “micro” to me).

    According to the notoriously incorrect site, the film is about a single mother whom finds that things in her family’s life go very wrong after her two young children visit their grandparents.

    In addition to the previously announced Kathryn Hahn and Ed Oxenbould, the site claims that the horror also stars Erica Lynne Marszalek, Peter McRobbie, Olivia DeJonge, Deanna Dunagan, Benjamin Kanes, Jon Douglas Rainey, Brian Gildea, Shawn Gonzalez, Richard Barlow, Steve Annan, and Michael Mariano.

    Says TheWrap who broke the first casting news, “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.

    Review: 'East of West' #11

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 13:14

    While last month reminded me why I love “East of West” this month reminds me why reading this book is sometimes a laborious task. The world building doesn’t come easy, and all too often Hickman forgets to put a character at the core of the story. Although the world itself can be considered the most vital character of this series, it like all the others is far too bogged down by the political machinations at play.


    WRITTEN BY: Jonathan Hickman
    ART BY: Nick Dragotta
    PUBLISHER: Image
    PRICE: $3.50
    RELEASE: April 9, 2014

    I often have a hard time discerning the story of this comic. At times it feels like the narrative belongs to Death and his unyielding quest for his own doomspawn. Then Hickman will spend entire months with that story shelved in order to tell a larger political story reeling from the events of the first few chapters.

    Yet, Game of Thrones this is not. There is no powerplay for wealth, gain, or control. Instead it is a lot of talk about the world, and philosophical musings on power where no real power has been demonstrated. Mind you it all remains interesting… to a degree but just feels weighed down by its own depth.

    It’s hard to fault a book for depth, but its accessibility that is the real problem here. The book doesn’t concern itself for with clear character motivations, unless I’m really missing something. Contrary to how it may sound, I’m even into some of the ambiguity, as long as its heading somewhere.

    Yet, for me every time this book really feels like its gaining traction is when it spends time with Death. Anything else feels like a detour that isn’t paced very well. Instead I’d love to see more of a balancing act rather than the issue on/issue off type of plot balancing being used here. It’s distracting and difficult to remain invested.

    Nick Dragotta again does a wonderful job and demonstrating the massive scope of this world. Monolithic structures are dotted across every page, but what’s more are the insane angles and use of space on display. He is always able to communicate the insanely large and complex nature of this world with beautifully simple panels that rely on extreme long shots. I couldn’t be happier with his work here.

    “East of West” have been running for almost a year, and for me still struggles to find it’s narrative footing. I keep holding out hope that the series will slip into a more defined kind of storytelling, but instead it seems content carrying on with the current status quo, as it stands I can hardly recommend the book in the monthly format, because the story is hard to follow when spread out over several months at a time. With the help of the collected trades the story is sure to read with a little more coherence and solve many of the pacing issues I’ve found in my month-to-month reading.

    Rating: 2.5/5 Skulls.

    Review “Shutter” #1

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 12:57

    Joe Keatinge and Leila De Duca breath new life into globetrotting adventure comics with their gigantic and imaginative world. Kate Kristopher may be bored with the world around her, but from everything we see, she has no reason to be. “Shutter” makes a solid effort to define itself in a genre carved out by timeless classics like The Adventures of Tintin and for the most part it succeeds.


    WRITTEN BY: Joe Keatinge
    ART BY: Leila De Duca
    PUBLISHER: Image
    PRICE: $3.50
    RELEASE: April 9, 2014

    This comic begins by instilling a sense of wonder, adding a sense of bewilderment, and topping it off with a sense of casual complacency. You watch as Kate Kristopher is introduced into a very wild world from an incredibly young age and you’ll be in awe of the universe around her. She lives in a fantastic age filled with weird and marvelous creatures, but she claims her life is boring.

    It’s hard to see. She has been on numerous fantastic adventures. The brief glimpses of her exploits that we’re treated too seem more exciting than I could possibly fathom. She’s Johnny Quest but grown up having saw enough to live a thousand lifetimes her world is far from ordinary, but doesn’t seem to faze her anymore.

    The looming specters outside of the pages seem to characterize the story more that Kate herself. It’s a beautifully balanced script that shows something missing outside of the primal appeal of adventure, but it’s not quite clear what that something is just yet. It seems rooted in her relationship to her father, but surely there is more to it than that.

    Leila De Duca will by all accounts blow you away. Her art is wildly imaginative and pulled off seamlessly. It’s actually quite stunning to see the scope of the world she has created here. Everything is completely outside the ordinary but manages to have a casual complacency about it. You’ll see a robot from 50’s science fiction serials sitting on the subway, and a business minotaur in a suit. Only to be juxtaposed by a swash buckling Kate swinging off a sinking ship as its attacked by a Chthulu like monster. It’s hard to fathom, but De Duca makes it look easy.

    There is a lot about the power of childhood here on these pages. A child raised in constant danger comes to thrive off of it. They feel lost without it, and that certainly resonates with Kate. “Shutter” will surprise you. It’s not about all the beautiful and fantastic creatures on the page instead it’s an oddly heartfelt look at a woman’s loss of innocence and wonder in a world literally brimming with adventure.

    Powerful and exciting with a flavor of the mundane “Shutter” sadly takes its time in this first issue to develop it’s characters and world a little too much without a real focus on what Kate’s story is actually about. For now though, #1 offers a tantalizing tease of the larger world to come.

    Rating: 3.5/5 Skulls.

    'The Quiet Ones' Clip Burns With Scolding Hot Water

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 12:18

    A scalding bathroom isn’t scary, it’s just hot. But damned if I wanna burn…

    The following new clip from The Quiet Ones, haunting theaters April 25, channels A Nightmare on Em Street‘s infamous bathtub sequence, but it’s less effective. Olivia Cooke and Jared Harris are pretty awesome, and Hammer did deliver us Let Me In and The Woman in Black. I’m still being hopeful that they can deliver once again…

    A university student (Sam Claflin) and some classmates are recruited to carry out a private experiment — to create a poltergeist. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation.

    Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.

    Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne, and “Bates Motel’s” Olivia Cooke all star.

    There Be Monsters In This Gory New 'Evil Within' Trailer

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 12:01

    Bethesda released a new trailer for The Evil Within, the next horror game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. It looks terrifying, with elements of body horror — the “villagers” are impaled with spikes, wrapped in barbed wire, and/or are mutilated to various degrees — and obvious inspirations from Resident Evil 4. This is one of our most anticipated horror games of 2014, and this brand new trailer only solidifies The Evil Within as a horror game to watch out for.

    The Evil Within releases on August 26th for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    [Random Cool] Pizza Co. Carves Horror Icons Into Pie!

    They say Freddy Krueger looks like a pizza…

    Thanks to Bloody reader Mike A. for sending us a link to Papa’s Pizza in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico.

    While the link to a new pizza place is enough for me to click through, learning that they carve famous movie icons into their pie is just a bonus.

    Below you can take a look at some of their edible works of art that include Chucky, the Reaper, a zombie, and of course Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees.
