The 'Stage Fright' Trailer Gets a Standing Ovation!!!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 21:17

A Nightmare on Elm Street meets Phantom of the Opera meets Kabuki theaters? Yes please!

Jerome Sable’s musical horror comedy Stage Fright is now officially my most anticipated midnighter at this weekend’s SXSW Film Festival.

Magnet has released an absolutely epic red band trailer for the slasher that’s mucked in blood and laughs. By the time it’s over you’ll be giving it a standing ovation, guaranteed!

While it debuts at the fest, you won’t have to wait long to see at home: Magnet will release the film in its Ultra VOD program, launching it on iTunes and On Demand on April 3 and following with a theatrical release on May 9.

Described as Scream meets “Glee,” “Starry-eyed teenager Camilla Swanson wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a Broadway diva, but she’s stuck working in the kitchen of a snobby performing arts camp. Determined to change her destiny, she sneaks in to audition for the summer showcase and lands a lead role in the play, but just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill, and Camilla soon finds herself terrified by the horror of musical theatre.

Fright is the feature film debut of writer-director Jerome Sable, director of the absolutely hilarious, award-winning short, “The Legend of Beaver Dam.” Allie MacDonald and Douglas Smith star with Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf.

[Indie Horror Spotlight] Slendermannequin Returns!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 20:45

If you remember, we played the Slender inspired indie horror game Haunted Memories back in July. It looked and played great, even if it was a member of the growing legion of Slenderman games we were — and still are, to a certain degree — being inundated with following the success of Hadley’s The Eight Pages. It’s second episode recently released, so I figured now would be as good a time as any to return to the game to see what’s new.

The good thing is episode two is nothing like the first. Unfortunately (for me), it’s very similar to Kraven Manor, a terrifying game where you’re chased by mannequins. Watch me lose my damn mind after the jump.

'The Walking Dead: The Game' Continues With Episode 2, Available Now

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 20:25

It took a little longer than I would’ve liked to get here, but the latest episode in Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Game finally hit Steam and PS3 today. If you’re planning on playing it elsewhere, you’ll need to be a tiny bit more patient, as it won’t arrive on Xbox 360 until tomorrow, March 5, and iOS on March 6. Telltale says the Vita version should release by the end of the month.

I finished the episode a few minutes ago — it’s very good, even if it has a few too many lulls. Look for our official review of A House Divided to go live very soon.

New Pics And Blu-ray Art For 'Mr. Jones' Hide In The Woods

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 18:19

It’s crazy how long ago I saw the sales art for Mr. Jones, I’m sure my exposure to the film dates way back to before they started shooting, so I’m definitely looking forward to checking it out when the film hits Blu-ray and DVD on May 6th from Anchor Bay Films.

Having premiered at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in 2013, Mr. Jones will also have an exclusive Los Angeles limited theatrical engagement beginning May 2nd.

Scott (Jon Foster of Stay Alive) and Penny (Sarah Jones of “Sons Of Anarchy”) just moved to a remote cabin to escape the pressures of the world and breathe new life into their art. But they’ll soon discover they are not alone: an infamously reclusive artist – known only as ‘Mr. Jones’ – lives nearby. He doesn’t like to be disturbed, and only comes out at night when he drags his strange, sinister sculptures deep into the woods. When Scott and Penny’s curiosity leads them too close for Mr. Jones’ comfort, he plunges the young couple into a nightmare world of mayhem, madness and mind-bending terror.

Diane Neal (“Law & Order: SVU”), Mark Steger (I Am Legend) and David Clennon (John Carpenter’s The Thing) co-star in this startling tale from debut director Karl Mueller (screenwriter of Xavier Gens’ The Divide).

'Cult County' Developer Wants To "Disturb And Scare" You

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 16:59

With their next project, the Nintendo 3DS exclusive survival horror game Cult County, indie developer Renegade Kid aims to “disturb and scare the players” by not holding back in terms of mature content. This comes from a recent chat with Siliconera, where co-founder Jools Watsham shed a bit more light on the upcoming game.

Cult County was revealed at PAX East last year. It’s not due to release on the 3DS’s eShop until sometime in 2015.

This won’t be Renegade Kid’s first foray into our favorite genre. They also developed the Dementium series, as well as the atmospheric shooter, Moon.

According to Watsham, Cult County will be less like Moon and “more along the lines of Dementium but with a stronger emphasis on story and characters.” That sounds like my kind of game. Now I all I have to do is give in and buy a 3DS.

On a related note, we played through some of Dementium II HD, ported by Memetic Games, in our 13 Days of Horror series last October. It’s a neat, old school survival horror game, even if its “HD remaster” leaves a lot to be desired.

First 'Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)' Image Crawls In!!!!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 16:55

I liked Tom Six’s Frankenstein-esque The Human Centipede, but I absolutely loved his sequel, Full Sequence.

Many people didn’t understand that the sequel was a response to the criticism of the first film, which has become part of pop culture, and is thus HILARIOUS.

With that, I cannot contain my excitement for Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence), which is said to take place in a prison with a 500+ centipede!

EW landed the first image confirming the prison location, while also displaying our first looks at Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey, who played the villains Dr. Heiter and Martin in the first and second films, respectively.

Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey play very different characters that will put Dr. Heiter and Martin in the shade,” Six tells the mag. “They are both brilliant actors with their own style. Laurence played a mute in Part 2; now he is a smart guy with a whole lot of dialog. Dieter played a cold, restrained doctor in Part 1; now he is a loud, racist, sadistic a–hole. Robert Lasardo plays a very cool, daring part, and I gave ex-porn star Bree Olson her first break as a serious actress, and she does one hell of a job. I play ‘Tom Six’ in the movie, which is an Oscar nomination performance.

“THC Part 3 will be totally different from Parts 1 and 2 and certainly not as gross,” Six continues about the film’s plot, “But it will be the most controversial one politically-wise. It will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical of the three. Parts 1 and 2 have a very European feel. Part 3 is very American with the highest budget, a big movie score, widescreen, and an XXL human centipede. It’s set in an American maximum security prison in the middle of the desert…

Six also confirms said 500-person centipede, which is achieved without any serious effects work! “By having a lot of brave American extras and doing it the megalomanic way like they did in ‘Spartacus,’ ” Six says. “F— CGI-created things.

The American finale, also starring Six Eric Roberts, Robert LaSardo, Tommy Lister, Bree Olson, Abraham Rubio and William Guirola, will be 100% politically incorrect.

'Cthulhudad' Takes Us To The Mountains Of Dadness

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 16:14

I haven’t played Octodad, but that’s only because I’ve been waiting for something a bit more Lovecraftian. In it, you play as an octopus who has disguised himself as a person by wearing people clothes and doing people things. Your goal is to not let the peoplefolk know you’re not entirely human.

I’m guessing Cthulhudad — totally not a real game, though it really should be — would take a similar approach, only with more ritual sacrifices, death, pain, and aguish — you know, all the things Cthulhu likely requires for nourishment.

Bloody reader ‘Dan Polydoris’ got creative and designed his own custom vintage-style set of Mego figures based on John Carpenter’s Halloween!

I also made a Laurie figure (she’s pictured on the side of the box), but she ended up looking too shitty even for the internet to see,” he jokingly adds. “So, she’ll remain safely bound and gagged in the back of my closet.

Michael Myers construction:
Captain Kirk head
Type 2 body
Soldier Ape boots from Planet of the Apes
Astronaut suit from Planet of the Apes (zipper removed)
Modified scimitar from Azeem (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) for the knife
