Finnish record label Blood Music has announced that they have signed legendary black metal band Emperor to their roster and will be releasing a “complete works” box set in early to mid-2015 that will be, “…one of the largest vinyl box sets ever created in the history of music.” This will be a one-time only limited edition pressing with no copies of the vinyl available for individual sale.
The label states:
We’ve been working behind-the-scenes for more than a year – carefully compiling every detail of Emperor’s oeuvre from the minute they began in 1991 until their final breath in 2007. We are working directly in conjunction with the members themselves to compile the most incredible, beautiful, and archival collection one could ever imagine…
Emperor has only released four full-length studio albums, beginning with 1994′s In The Nightside Eclipse and ending with 2001′s Prometheus: The Discipline Of Fire And Demise. Head below to listen the former.
It looks as if the latest entry in Capcom’s zombie genocide simulator series Dead Rising 3 might not be an Xbox One exclusive for long. Because the Internet sees all, a listing for the game was spotted on the Steam Database, raising the question as to whether or not Capcom is planning on bringing it to PC in the near future. It wouldn’t be all that surprising, seeing as both Dead Rising 2 and its spin-off Off the Record also arrived on PC.
We liked Dead Rising 3; Tyler had nothing but good things to say about it in his review. Sadly, the entirety of its season pass offering was found lacking.
I imagine this will be confirmed at E3.
Well Go USA has released another clip from Juno Mak's Hong Kong vampire flick Rigor Mortis, and right now we have it for you complete with a suicide attempt and other ghastly happenings. Check it out!
Rigor Mortis will be on VOD outlets June 6th along with a limited theatrical roll-out on the same day. The theatrical listings thus far include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, and Honolulu.
In this eerie and chilling contemporary action/special effects-laden homage to the classic Chinese vampire movies of the 1980’s, writer-director-producer Juno Mak makes his feature directorial debut. Co-produced by J-Horror icon Takashi Shimizu, and reuniting some of the original cast members of the classic Mr. Vampire series, Rigor Mortis is set in a creepy and moody Hong Kong public housing tower whose occupants, we soon discover, run the gamut from the living to the dead to the undead, along with ghosts, vampires, and zombies.
RIGOR MORTIS stars action movie veteran Chin Siu-ho (Siu-ho) as a former vampire hunting actor who now finds himself reaching the end of the line as a washed-up star, separated from his wife and alienated from his son. Down on his luck and with barely a dollar to his name, he checks into Room 2442 in the housing estate, an allegedly haunted flat. His aim is to end his misery by doing himself in, but instead Siu-ho is interrupted by some of the other "occupants" of the building including a Taoist master-exorcist (Anthony Chan), a traumatized housewife with a tragic past (Kara Hui), as well as a seemingly benign elderly woman (Paw Hee-ching) who has an empty coffin conspicuously hanging in the middle of her apartment. Soon it becomes apparent to Siu-ho that the people around him and the situation are far from normal. Despite his lack of belief in superstition, Siu-ho is soon thrust into the battle of his life as vicious vampires with unsettled business begin to rise from the dead...

It took awhile, but someone is finally taking the classic Pac-Man formula and turning it into a horrifying first person horror game where you’re chased down labyrinthine hallways by demonic monkeys. The game in question is Dark Deception, and according to its Kickstarter, it’s “a fun Pac-Man style horror game” that’s comparable to “Pac-Man meets Cabin in the Woods.”
You can see its Kickstarter pitch below. If you’d rather play it yourself, they also have a playable demo available on the crowdfunding site.
If successfully funded, Glowstick Games plans to release Dark Deception on PC, Mac, Linux and Wii U later this year. If the gaming community proves extra generous, there are several stretch goals that would bring it to PS4 and Xbox One.
You can also support it by voting for the game on Steam Greenlight.
If you’ve managed the impressive feat of beating Dark Souls II and since then have been patiently waiting for another helping of punishing dark fantasy chicanery, then boy, do I have some exciting news for you. Today, developer From Software announced a trio of DLC for the game called The Lost Crowns trilogy. Each episode will be available individually for $10 or together at a discounted price of $25.
I called Dark Souls II a “masterpiece” in my review. If there’s any game worth returning to, it’s this one. But only if you can withstand its extremely punishing nature.
The first episode is slated to arrive on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on July 22. It will be followed by the second episode on August 26, and the third on September 24.
This action-packed new trailer for Dead Island developer Techland’s upcoming open-world zombie survival game Dying Light has taught me a few things.
For starters, I did not know you had a Batman-esque grappling hook that can be used to quickly reach rooftops. I also didn’t know there was a gargantuan zombie type that chases you, swinging its concrete pole hammer in the hopes of crushing your stupid, parkouring face in with it.
Oh, and it looks like there are child zombies to worry about now, too.
You can see all of these things in action in the video below.
Dying Light releases on the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in February 2015.
Another new still is here from the second season of the Eli Roth-produced Netflix series "Hemlock Grove," and it features one of the new denizens of this frightful place front and center. Behold Madeleine Martin as Shelley.
About "Hemlock Grove"
The second season of the Emmy® nominated Netflix original series “Hemlock Grove,” a riveting supernatural thriller from executive producer Eli Roth, will premiere on Friday, July 11th, at 12:01 AM PT. The series is based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name and is produced by Gaumont International Television.
All ten episodes of the one-hour series starring Famke Janssen (X-Men), Bill Skarsgård (Simon & The Oaks), Landon Liboiron (“Terra Nova”), and Dougray Scott (Mission Impossible II) will be available at launch in all territories where Netflix is available -- U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland, Latin America, the Nordics, and the Netherlands. The series also stars Madeline Brewer (“Orange Is the New Black”), Madeleine Martin (“Californication”), Joel de la Fuente (“Law & Order: SVU”), and Tiio Horn (“18 to Life”).
“Hemlock Grove” is a supernatural thriller which explores the strange happenings in a small Pennsylvania town. The show focuses on the unlikely friendship between the founding family’s young heir, Roman Godfrey (Skarsgård), and gypsy newcomer and outsider Peter Rumancek (Liboiron). Each holds a monstrous secret that has been unleashed.
Season Two continues with the town coming to grips with the shocking massacre incurred by one of its deadliest creatures. Roman and Peter are now faced with new responsibilities and the realities that come with adulthood. Roman’s relationship with his mother (Janssen) is all but dead as he struggles with his unwanted Upir birthright and the disappearance of his sister, Shelley (Martin). Peter moves in with Destiny (Horn) and is forced to get a job after his mother is sent away.
Meanwhile, in search of a new life, newcomer Miranda Cates (Madeline Brewer) embarks on Hemlock Grove with an unknowingly profound effect on Peter and Roman. And Norman (Scott), still reeling from the loss of his family, must face the harsh truths that are uncovered about those he still loves.
The drama series was the first foray into television by internationally acclaimed horror master Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever). It was developed by Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman and is executive produced by Eli Roth, Charles Eglee, Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman, Eric Newman, and Michael Connolly. “Hemlock Grove” is produced by Gaumont International Television for Netflix.

Here’s the new spot for The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister director Scott Derrickson’s Deliver Us From Evil, which we were lucky enough to visit the set of.
Starring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Joel McHale, and Sean Harris, “New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city. Based upon the book, which details Sarchie’s bone-chilling real-life cases.”
Look for it in theaters July 2, 2014 via Sony Screen Gems.
I have some bad news and some good news. I’d ask which news you’d like to hear first, but I couldn’t hear you anyway so I’m going to deliver the former first, because what kind of weirdo asks to start with the good news? You always use the good news as a chaser for the bad.
Unfortunately, Batman: Arkham Knight has joined numerous other games (Dying Light, The Witcher 3, The Order: 1886, The Division, etc.) with its shiny new 2015 release window. I hesitate to call that bad news, since it only gives developer Rocksteady more time to make it the ultimate new-gen Batman game. Oh, and the good news is we have a new trailer. It focuses on the Batmobile, which I am crazy excited to drive.
