BOOM! Studios just sent out a not-so-subtle visual teaser for a new series, and it looks as though the publisher will be bringing the beloved action/adventure flick, “Big Trouble In Little China”. BOOM! has been bringing an abundance of movie and TV properties to comic books over the past few years, and “Big Trouble” adds to their lineup of 80s inspired books.

There is no news on who will be writing or who will be providing artwork, though it is clear that Eric Powell is involved in some capacity as he drew the teaser, which you can see below.

She Kills Ron Bonk With a Supernatural STD-Infected Vagina

Dread Central - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 12:15

Many years ago my life was changed. Not by some tragedy or epiphany, but by a movie so wretched and boring it lives in infamy as what is no doubt the worst movie I have ever seen. That title is held by Ron Bonk's Strawberry Estates, and now... over a decade later THE BONK IS BACK!

Don't get me wrong... Ron is a great guy and a gentleman, and I'm sure he's learned a thing or 10k about filmmaking since that flick was unleashed upon my forever scarred psyche. Even I have to admit his latest effort, She Kills, looks like a boatload of fun.

Judge for yourselves while watching the trailer and digging on the artwork.

Ya know what? Even if She Kills is just okay, it enabled me to write what is probably my favorite headline ever. Well played, Mr. Bonk. Well played.

Written and directed by Bonk, the film stars Jennie Russo, Trey Harrison, Michael Merchant, Jody Pucello, David Royal, and Martha Zemsta.

She Kills tells the story of Sadie, a woman who, after her life is destroyed by a gang called "The Touchers," sets out for revenge equipped with a special superhuman power she previously didn't know she possessed.

Anathema To Open For HIM On US Tour

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 12:00

UK rock group Anathema has announced that they will be embarking on a US tour as direct support for Finnish love metal band HIM. The band is touring in support of their 2012 album Weather Systems, which ranks as one of my favorite albums ever released. They are also taking a break from writing/recording a new album to go on tour.

Guitarist/vocalist Daniel Cavanagh comments, “Anathema is delighted to return to the United States as special guests of our personal friends Ville Valo and HIM. It’s always a great occasion playing with our Finnish mates – as we’ve known each other’s music for many years and have been sharing stages together on a number of occasions since our main support to them in the UK for ‘Dark Light’ in 2006. To do this in the United States, the birthplace of rock and roll and one of Anathema’s true musical and spiritual homes, is just a fantastic prospect – especially so soon after our first headlining tour last autumn which was a success beyond our expectations. We hope to really provoke a strong reaction from the audience, and I’m sure we will perform a song or two from our brand new album, which is being finished as I write. HIM in the USA? Bring it on!

I saw Anathema tour last year and it was fantastic! The band has enormous amounts of energy live and they performed every song flawlessly. Go and see them if they come near your neck of the woods. All tour dates can be seen below.

Tour dates:
3/07 – Los Angeles, CA @ House Of Blues
3/08 – Anaheim, CA @ House of Blues
3/09 – San Francisco, CA @ Fillmore
3/12 – Chicago, IL @ House of Blues

Dracula Reborn in New Artwork and Trailer

Dread Central - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 12:00

We first told you about Halcyon International Pictures preparing a slate of low budget movies based on classic movie monsters under the "Famous Monsters of Filmland" banner in 2010, but over the years things have changed a bit! Read on for the latest details.

The main change is to the name of the banner itself. Gone is the "Famous Monsters of Filmland" moniker, and in its place we have the far less snazzy name of the "Still Night Monster Movie Series."

Either way, a trailer and some new artwork are here for their first release, Dracula Reborn, which is being billed as a modern retelling of Bram Stoker’s classic novel.

Dani Lennon, Rene Arreola, Linda Bella, Corey Landis, and Stuart Rigby star. Patrick McManus directs.

Set in modern day Los Angeles, the story revolves around Jonathan Harker, a man who had it all... a good job, a beautiful wife, and a family on its way. But in the dark of night a wealthy and enigmatic stranger, Vladimir Sarkany, will come forth to destroy it all. Now, in order to get his life back, he has to join forces with unlikely crusader Abraham Van Helsing and prepare himself to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Forget what you know about the legend... all is about to be Reborn.

Full Moon Getting Set to Display its Trophy Heads; Exclusive First Images

Dread Central - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 11:15

Around here we keep a close eye on just what Full Moon Productions has cooking. Why? Because Charles Band and company have given us lots of laughs and frights over the years, and we love them like the Castle Freak's penile nub.

Next up for these cats is a movie called Trophy Heads, and right now we've got the title treatment and first images from the set for you. Band and company are being rather tight-lipped about the project, and thus far we don't have many details.

However, we can in fact tell you that genre icon Linnea Quigley will be starring in the flick alongside Carel Struycken (Lurch from The Addams Family films) and that judging from the images below... this may just be one hell of a bloody ride.

New 'ROAM' Video Details Character Customization, Streamlined Interface

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 11:00

The developer behind ROAM, a post-apocalyptic top-down horror game where you scavenge for resources to build the ultimate anti-zombie fortress, has released a new video update that details a few massive changes the game has seen since the last update. In it, we get a look at the streamlined UI and a few of the basic structures as well as how they can be affected by the world. For example, if it starts to rain, that’s good for your water collector, but it’s bad for your campfire.

We also get a brief tease of the character customization system, which will let players choose their character’s clothing, gender, race, background, and special trait. My girl’s going to be adept at throwing knives, because guns run out of bullets, but only babies run out of knives.

Japan’s teen-fronted metal band Babymetal has released a live video for their track “ギミチョコ!!” (“Give Me Choco!!”). What amazes me about this footage, which you can see below, is just how huge this band is. It’s really cool seeing a younger audience getting into metal, even if it’s heavily sprinkled with pop. I’m 100% behind this group!

“Give Me Choco!!” comes from the band’s self-titled debut album. You can buy Babymetal via iTunes.

Housemarque Reanimating 'Dead Nation' On PlayStation 4

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 02:43

It looks like Developer Housemarque’s excellent top-down undead shoot ‘em up is coming to the PlayStation 4 and they’re calling it the Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition. Of the many similarly themed games we’ve seen over the last few years, this is easily my favorite. It’s dark and gory good fun that can be shared with a friend in co-op, and the meta-game, which pits every country’s kills against each other, provides a little extra incentive to kick ass. Because, ya know, patriotism.

Back in September, the dev teased their next PS4 title, and while I originally assumed it would be a sequel, that assumption has been proven incorrect. This will be a port of the original game, released in 2010, and it will be free to download for PlayStation Plus subscribers in Hong Kong on March 6.

Yeah, Hong Kong. I’ll update when I have details on release dates and pricing for other regions, as well as what that “Apocalypse Edition” bit means.

I think this book will appeal to any fans of adventure.”
