'Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition' Review: There And Back Again

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 19:54

Over the course of my five-year writing “career” I’ve reviewed Capcom’s seminal action horror masterpiece Resident Evil 4 an impressive three times. This will be number four, and while I’m always happy to return to one of my all-time favorites, I can’t help but wonder why Capcom is so hesitant to stop teasing us with HD remasters and just remake it already. Like Half-Life 2 and BioShock, this is a monumentally influential video game that should be on every gamer’s must-play list.

With its latest re-release, Capcom has wrapped it up in improved textures and a silky smooth frame-rate (60 FPS) and dubbed it the Ultimate HD Edition. If you grab it on Steam, it also brings with it a suite of achievements, leaderboards, trading cards, and Steam Cloud support. Let’s decide whether or not all that’s enough to truly make this the ultimate edition in our review.

The gaming industry is going through a bit of a change right now as we welcome the next generation of consoles and the promise of more fully realized virtual worlds they each offer. Unfortunately, this means Resident Evil 4 is officially last-last-gen, and in terms of visuals, it shows.

When the game was re-released on consoles in HD alongside its predecessor, Code Veronica X, its age was showing. The last three years haven’t treated it terribly well, even with the slightly crisper resolution and improved textures. There’s only so much improvement a now ten year-old game can endure, and I’m afraid this one has reached its limit. Any further improvement would require new models, and I don’t see Capcom doing that anytime soon.

Resident Evil 4 still looks good, and is right about on the border of being able to pass as a last-gen launch title. To me, the tweak that packed the biggest punch is the option to run it at a silky-smooth 60 FPS. It makes a noticeable difference, especially when you combine it with the handful of other graphical perks this version comes with.

(Note: there’s a bug some users are experiencing that drastically slows down the game at 60 FPS, for now the fix is to choose the 30 FPS option until something more official is released to remedy the issue.)

Now, if you have yet to experience the wondrous gaming experience that is Resident Evil 4, it follows fan-favorite Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil 2. Kennedy’s been tasked with rescuing the President’s daughter, Ashley Graham, who’s been whisked away to a remote European village by a cult called the Los Illuminados. This was the first game in the series to throw those traditional, shambling, moaning zombies out the window in favor of Ganados — a more intelligent and capable enemy.

The Resident Evil series has never been known to control very well, and while this game may have evolved the way the third person genre played back in over the last generation, by today’s standards, the character controls are approaching tank-like. Thankfully, there’s an option to customize them a bit — an incredibly handy feature if aiming with the right trigger and firing with X feels as awkward as it does to write — and, for the most part, it controls all right.

I say “for the most part,” because every so often the controller would be rendered unresponsive. I couldn’t find out what triggered the issue, but it happened twice over roughly 15 hours of play. The only solution that worked for me was to relaunch the game, and that worked both times.

Like the previous HD port, the Ultimate HD Edition comes bundled with all of the extras from the previous versions, including the Mercenaries mode, where you can step into the shoes of several well-known characters from the series to combat waves of enemies and a time limit, the Ada Wong-centric ‘Separate Ways’ epilogue campaign and ‘Assignment Ada’ mission, an unlockable (and unforgiving) Professional difficulty, and a bevy of unlockables. Don’t fret, you’ll get your $20 worth of content.

The Final Word: Resident Evil 4 has been showing its age for some time, but Capcom has put a solid effort into making the Ultimate HD Edition a must-buy for fans of the genre, as well as those who are itching to return to it or anyone who missed it the first (second, third, fourth, fifth…) time around.

On a related note, we’ll be playing this game in all its HD, 60 FPS glory on the official Bloody Disgusting YouTube channel. If you have time, you should consider joining us.

Viking Santa to Come Calling on a Winter's Knight

Dread Central - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 19:30

Let me be clear... we do not care if this flick is Dread worthy just yet. That being said, if there's a story floating around about a friggin' viking Santa Claus, then goddamn it, we're gonna do it!

According to Deadline, after much back and forth Saturday involving Sony, Universal, and a last-ditch overture from Warner Bros., Sony finally closed its deal for Winter’s Knight, the Viking-mythology-tinged origin story of St. Nick and Christmas.

Sony emerged as front-runner when it agreed to pay $1 million to newbie scribes Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton for the biggest spec sale of this year so far. That was the easy part. Deals were then made for producers Marc Platt and Lawrence Grey. More challenging was making a deal with the white hot Kon-Tiki helmers Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg to direct, but that effort was led by incoming Sony Pictures Production President Michael De Luca.

Winter’s Knight takes a revisionist look at the origins of Saint Nick and Christmas, mixed with Viking mythology. The script is by Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton.

'The Visitor' Confused Audiences (Exclusive Clip)!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 17:52

Drafthouse Films, in conjunction with Cinedigm, will bring two of its recent theatrical success stories to Blu-ray and DVD in restored and remastered editions: the wildly ambitious and neglected sci-fi/horror epic The Visitor and Ms. 45, legendary director Abel Ferrara’s gritty, gore-filled New York revenge thriller. The films will arrive, respectively, on March 4 and on March 25.

In The Visitor, which we now have an exclusive clip from, “John Huston plays an intergalactic warrior who joins a cosmic Christ figure in battle against a demonic 8-year-old girl and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance. Multidimensional warfare, pre-adolescent profanity and brutal avian attacks combine to transport the viewer to a state unlike anything they’ve experienced – somewhere between hell, the darkest reaches of outer space and … Atlanta.

Incredibly ambitious but derided and largely neglected upon its initial release in 1979, The Visitor is an unforgettable assault on reality, a phantasmagoric sci-fi/horror/action hybrid. From writer-producer Ovidio G. Assonitis (Tentacles) and director/actor/body builder Michael J. Paradise (aka Giulio Paradisi – Fellini’s 8½), the film artfully fuses elements of some of the biggest blockbusters of the time (The Omen, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Fury, Star Wars, The Birds) and features a fittingly unique cast that includes Shelley Winters (Lolita), Glenn Ford (Superman), Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Franco Nero (Django), Mel Ferrer (War and Peace), Sam Peckinpah (director of The Wild Bunch) and, in the leading role, legendary director-actor John Huston (The Maltese Falcon, Chinatown).

Special Features on The Visitor include:
• Interviews with star Lance Henriksen, screenwriter Lou Comici and cinematographer Ennio Guarnieri
• Theatrical trailer
• 16-page booklet
• Digital download

The following exclusive clip is from the bonus featurrette on the Blu-ray and DVD with an interview from Lance Henriksen describing how confused audiences were when they saw in theaters in NYC!

[BD Review] Video Chat Thriller 'The Den' Transcends the Tired Found-Footage Genre

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 17:27

We all need to come to terms with the fact that found footage is here to stay for the time being. While some fillmmakers are at least trying to be innovative with their approach to the sub-genre, others seem content to wallow in well-worn “and two months later, their tapes were found” territory. The makers of The Den are thankfully among the innovators. Director Zachary Donohue and his co-writer Lauren Thompson present a tense, sometimes downright unnerving thriller told through a Chat-Roulette type of site and lots of phone/webcams. I’m as sick as the next guy of found footage, but The Den manages to present a solid take on the tired genre while adapting to changing technologies (like the shit show that is Chat-Roulette).

Besides the tech involved, the story is pretty damn sharp with loads of wickedly dark twists. It follows Elizabeth (Melanie Papalia), a grad student just awarded a grant for her thesis on social media. She loosely explains that her thesis requires her to be on a video chat site called “The Den” 24/7 so she can meet as many people as possible (something like that), but she winds up talking to the same handful of friends for most of the film. The strangers she does come across are the typical breed of dick swingers, dick puppets, and dicks begging to see her boobs. But hey, man, it’s research.

Then Elizabeth witnesses what looks like an actual murder, but no one believes her. The cops are no help and her boyfriend insists that it must’ve been a prank. Then more disturbing shit starts to go down, with Elizabeth at the eye of the storm. Whoever the killer is, he begins screwing with Elizabeth’s life in varying degrees of awful ways. It seems like a game at first – the work of some clever hackers maybe – but it soon becomes apparent that whoever is fucking with Elizabeth has a terrifying end game planned. Papalia gives a really solid performance, even when the character of Elizabeth is tough to sympathize with. She’s so naive at times it hurts.

Before you know it, the story goes from being a found footage gimmick to a genuine horror film drenched with suspense. It definitely blindsided me by going into some territories I didn’t expect. The third act has a Hostel vibe to it that takes the film beyond its found footage trappings, GoPro style! The majority of the film is set during the day, inside Elizabeth’s bright and cheery home. When the film heads into darkness, particularly during the third act, the shift is jarring. I mean that in a good way – another example of how Donohue and Thompson aren’t just hopping on the found footage bandwagon. They’ve got something sound to say about the internet and the dangers of putting a face on the millions of anonymous voices online.

If the concept of a movie being told entirely through video chats immediately turns you off, then you’ll probably want to stay away from The Den. If you can handle that kinda storytelling, definitely check this one out.

IFC Midnight is releasing The Den on VOD and select theaters March 14.

Grimm Creature Profile: Meet the Wildesheer and Win His Coat!

Dread Central - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 17:21

On last Friday night's episode of "Grimm," Nick and Monroe faced the Wildesheer, a vicious, ritualistic Wesen who targets strong, formidable opponents and takes trophy scalps from its victims. Check out a profile of the creature along with info on how you could win his coat.

Here's a more detailed description of the Wildesheer from the "Grimm Diaries":

Known by many different names, these Wesen go into a rage on the battlefield with no fear of death, mad as hounds, faces smeared with blood of victims, fighting in trance-like fury, scalping their defeated enemies. They sew these trophies of war into cloaks of hair, supposedly giving them the power of the warrior they've defeated. These Wesen achieve such fearsome reputations, they also became known as Berserkers.

The vile cloaks of scalped hair they wear into battle seem to protect them from weapons, making them nearly invulnerable. I do believe that, like Samson, they have a weakness. If one could take their hair as they had taken the hair of others, it would weaken them - but I was unable to get close enough and was forced to retreat before I could test my theory.

If you saw the episode (#3.13, "Revelation"), you already know Nick proved the theory. As an extra bonus, we also included their fight scene.




Now, as for the contest, all you have to do is "tweet" your best Wesen transformation face for a chance to win the actual Wildesheer scalp coat from the episode. Watch the below video for more details.

Metal Hammer has premiered a clip from the upcoming Ending Is The Beginning DVD, the tribute CD/DVD to Suicide Silence vocalist Mith Lucker, who died in November of 2012. The clip is of the song “You Only Live Once” and features Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God) on vocals and Robb Flynn (Machine Head) on guitars.

'Lords Of Shadow 2' DLC Outed, May Feature Alucard

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 16:28

The first expansion for the newly released Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 may have just been outed, thanks to a few text files hidden deep within the game and the sleuth-like nature of the Internet. After a bit of digging, user UbiSergei found information regarding potential Alucard-centric DLC called “Revelations”. In it, we’ll be able to “uncover new plotlines and discover the true extent of Alucard’s involvement.” I wouldn’t mind getting the chance to play as Alucard, even if the base game was more than a little disappointing.

Sadly, I wasn’t very impressed with Gabriel Belmont’s latest adventure. I labelled Lords of Shadow 2 as an exercise in frustration. It could have been so much more — it should have been so much more — but instead we’re left with a hugely disappointing end to what started out as a promising trilogy,” in my review.

Experience Evil in the Time of Heroes in Your Home

Dread Central - Mon, 03/03/2014 - 15:39

Billy Zane. Zombies. Heroes. Villainy. Flesh eating! Greece. Do we have you attention? Yes, those buzz words more than get our ghosts, and to have 'em all wrapped up into one movie has us grinning from ear to ear. Get ready for Evil in the Time of Heroes!

From the Press Release
Guts and gore, brutality, blood, dark humor… and a serious helping of Billy Zane can all be found in excess in EVIL IN THE TIME OF HEROES, writer/director Yorgos Noussias’ outrageous zombie apocalypse action-horror extravaganza set in his native country Greece.

Greece’s first-ever foray into the gnashingly popular zombie apocalypse sub-genre, EVIL IN THE TIME OF HEROES is an epic Greek action-horror-comedy zombie film that requires little introduction. An ancient evil has transformed the population of modern-day Athens into flesh-hungry undead—just as it did nearly 3,000 years earlier.

A rag-tag group of four survivors—a taxi driver, a pair of hot-blooded soldiers, and a doctor—must shoot, stab, decapitate, vivisect, impale, and just plain bulldoze their way through swarms of insatiable zombies, not to mention a bunch of nasty, degenerate humans. They receive some unexpected help from the ancient world in the form of immortal cloaked hero Prophitis (Titanic’s Billy Zane, in an Obi-Wan Kenobi-like guest appearance!), who arrives to randomly slice and dice the zombie horde and impart the wisdom of the ages upon the surviving humans.

EVIL IN THE TIME OF HEROES received its world premiere at the 2009 Athens Film Festival. It went on to receive accolades by horror film critics as it screened at the world’s most prominent genre film fests, including the 2010 Manchester’s Grimm Up North, 2010 Fantasia Film Festival, and 2010 Toronto After Dark Film Festival, as well as the Singapore and Edinburgh International Film Festivals.

Filled to the bloody brim with vicious battles, gore-infused struggles, period-style mythology, and a pitch-black sense of humor a la Shaun of the Dead, EVIL IN THE TIME OF HEROES arrives on VOD for the spring thaw, so get ready to take a bite—before it takes a bloody one out of you. And don’t say we didn’t tell you to “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts!”

Look for it on VOD beginning March 25th.

Synopsis
Thousands of years ago in ancient Greece, a horde of bloodthirsty zombies begin wreaking havoc on humans, and only a mysterious cloaked hero known as Prophitis (Billy Zane) and his otherworldly weapons can save them. Flash forward to modern-day Greece, where Athens is once again plagued by the carnivorous undead, and a ragtag band of human survivors—a taxi driver, a pair of hot-blooded soldiers, and a doctor—is on the run. And the elusive Prophitis is back, too. But zombies are only half the problem, as Greece has been targeted for destruction with a mega-bomb in order to contain the growing zombie virus. So now, the remaining humans must race against both zombies and time to ensure their survival!
