Red Band Trailer For Ti West's 'The Sacrament' Brings On The Cult Massacre!

bloody disgusting - Fri, 02/21/2014 - 11:34

I might be the only employee of this site that has yet to see the latest feature from Ti West, The Sacrament (read our review). I’m hoping that will change soon because the trailer looks great! It looks like West has brought a lot of atmosphere, always his strong suit, to the faux doc format. The performances also look strong across the board. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a fan of Seimetz, Bowen and Swanberg – but they all seem to be stepping outside of their comfort zones a bit here and landing nicely as they do so.

Directed by West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers, V/H/S) and produced by Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever, The Last Exorcism, Aftershock, The Green Inferno), the film stars Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), AJ Bowen (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die, The House of the Devil, The Signal), Kentucker Audley (V/H/S), Amy Seimetz (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Tiny Furniture) and Gene Jones (No Country for Old Men). It opens on VOD platforms May 5 with a Limited theatrical run beginning on June 6.

“The Sacrament follows two Vice media correspondents as they set out to document their friend’s search to find his missing sister. They travel outside of the United States to an undisclosed location where they are welcomed into the world of “Eden Parish,” a self-sustained rural utopia comprised of nearly 200 members. At the centre of this small, religious, socialist community is a mysterious leader known only as “Father.” As their friend reunites with his sister, it becomes apparent to the newcomers that this paradise may not be as it seems. What started as just another documentary shoot soon becomes a race to escape with their lives.

[Exclusive] NSFW Video Premiere: Xiu Xiu "El Naco"

bloody disgusting - Fri, 02/21/2014 - 11:00

Some of the most unsettling and terrifying scenes in horror come from Japanese films. Audition, Kairo, One Missed Call, and more featured scenes that worked their way under my skin and scraped their filthy nails right along my spine. That feeling is what I’m reminded of with this music video premiere.

We’re teaming up with avant-garde group Xiu Xiu to bring you their video for “El Naco”, which is a dark, abusive BDSM tale that is NSFW due to nudity, strong sexual themes, and implied violence (with very visual blood). The song comes from the band’s latest album Angel Guts: Red Classroom, which is based upon the Japanese film of the same name (warning: link NSFW). I don’t want to give away any more, so head on below to see this unsettling, eerie video, which was directed by John C. Clark.

You can order your copy of Angel Guts: Red Classroom via Polyvinyl Records.

Atlus Shares 'Daylight' Release Date, Price, Nifty Twitch Integration

bloody disgusting - Fri, 02/21/2014 - 11:00

Last week, Atlus and developer Zombie Studios teased a nebulous April release for their supernatural horror game Daylight. Now that’s been narrowed down to April 8, so mark you calendars and make sure you have enough to cover its $14.99 price tag, because doesn’t look like a game you’ll want to miss.

These details were paired with the reveal of a nifty feature that gives strangers the power to make the game even more than it already is. Say you’re watching a Twitch stream where someone’s playing a bit of Daylight, exploring, seeking, solving puzzles. Zombie Studios has found a very clever way to integrate Twitch into the experience by letting live-stream viewers type words into the chat which then trigger in-game audio events.

Atlus has no plans on releasing the full list of words, but I’m very much looking forward to seeing what these audio cues entail. I think my first word will be sploosh.

Daylight will arrive on April 8 for PC and PlayStation 4.

[Random Cool] Bassist Does Amazing Cover Of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt"

bloody disgusting - Fri, 02/21/2014 - 09:00

Bassist Zander Zon has posted an incredible solo bass cover of Nine Inch Nails‘ classic track “Hurt”. While the title says that it’s a cover of NIN’s, I personally think it sounds more like a cover of Johnny Cash‘s 2002 cover. So, it’s a cover of a cover. We’re definitely going deeper here.

Back to the topic at hand, Zon does an amazing job of covering “Hurt”, each section he does something new and exciting so as to keep the interest of the listener and viewer. It’s well worth a few minutes, so get down there and click on that ‘Play’ button!

'The Raid' Remake Is Happening With...

bloody disgusting - Thu, 02/20/2014 - 19:13

One of the greatest action franchises ever is Gareth Edwards’ The Raid. And even though the two films create a masterpiece of fist-fights, people outside of hardcore fans and festival peeps don’t know much about it. Thus, a remake will happen.

Announced after the first Indonesian Raid was acquired by Sony, today TheWrap reports that Screen Gems has hired a director – and has their eyes on their leads.

The Expendables 3‘s Patrick Hughes is in negotiations to direct The Raid remake for Screen Gems and XYZ films. Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace) wrote the script.

Casting has yet to begin but the Hemsworth brothers -Liam, Chris and Luke – have been mentioned as possible targets for the hard-hitting action movie!

The original Raid followed an Indonesian S.W.A.T. team tasked with storming a building where a violent gangster and his thugs reign over innocent residents. One young cop has a mission of his own – to rescue his drug-dealing brother from the chaos inside.

XYZ Films will produce with Gareth Huw Evans, who directed The Raid and its ambitious sequel The Raid 2, which hits theaters in March.

Kurt Russell Has A Great Perspective on Remaking Movies...

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/19/2014 - 09:53

With an Escape from New York remake still in development hell, Kurt Russell, who starred as the iconic Snake Plissken in John Carpenter’s 1981 thriller, talked to IGN about his thoughts on remaking the film – and remaking movies in general.

There’s nothing wrong with the concept of doing something,” Russell told the site of the proposed Escape from New York reboot. “I just think that my only thing about that is, when I think of remakes — and I’ve done remakes that I didn’t think should have been done — I only think remakes make sense if you take an idea that was flawed, a script that was flawed, perhaps they didn’t have enough money to make it correctly, maybe a character or two was not particularly well-played or could be fixed. If it had a problem that you’d say, ‘God, if you just do that, that’s a great movie,’ or, ‘If that movie had so-and-so in it, it could be great! Imagine that with so-and-so in it. Imagine that done this way.’ Then that to me makes perfect sense as to why they would do a remake.

He really hits the nail on the head, although I think taking a great film and letting the director do his own thing (i.e. Dawn of the Dead) is another great way to approach remaking a classic.

As for Russell appearing in the New York reboot as Snake, he doubts that will happen:

He’s a great character. But no, I’m too old. Snake’s a man in his prime. He’s an American man absolutely in his prime. He’s a really good character.

It would be nice at least see him cameo.

"The Walking Dead" Team Come Up for 'Air'

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/19/2014 - 09:43

“The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman is producing Air, a sci fi thriller to which Norman Reedus, pictured, one of the breakout actors on “Walking Dead,” and Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Constantine) have signed on to topline, writes THR.

Christian Cantamessa, who co-wrote and was lead designer for games such as “Red Dead Redemption” and “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas”(!), wrote the script with Chris Pasetto and will make his feature directorial debut with the low-budget pic!

The story is set in an underground cryogenic facility after a nuclear fallout renders the atmosphere unbreathable. Air centers on its two custodial workers (Reedus, Hounsou), who take care of the cryogenically sleeping personnel that are to re-establish society, but they struggle to preserve their own sanity and lives while maintaining the extremely fragile environment of the last livable place on earth.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions is already in final negotiations to acquire the project.
