Our 5 Favorite Possessed Leading Ladies!!!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 13:00

Hammer Films’ The Quiet Ones hits theaters on April 25th, and looks to continue the winning streak they established with The Woman In Black and Let Me In.

In the film, “Tucked away in an estate outside of London, Professor Coupland along with a team of university students conduct an “experiment” on Jane Harper, a young girl who harbors unspeakable secrets. What dark forces they uncover are more terrifying than any of them expected. Inspired by true events, the film stars Jared Harris (Mad Men and Sherlock Homes: A Game of Shadows), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel), and is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.

To celebrate the film’s release – and ponder what exactly is happening to Cooke’s Jane Harper – we decided to take a sponsored look back at some iconic corollaries from horror’s past.

Head below for Our 5 Favorite Possessed Leading Ladies!!!

5: Katie – Paranormal Activity

While Katie might not be the most visually frightening of our possessed leading ladies, she has by far the most franchise staying power. From getting possessed in PA1 to running around snapping necks in PA4, she’s actually been in all five movies (including The Marked Ones) at this point. And you can bet your bottom dollar she’ll be in this year’s PA5. With all of this demonic activity, Katie hasn’t been Katie for a long time.

4: Linda – Evil Dead II

Denise Bixler’s poor Linda doesn’t get an awful lot of screen time, but she definitely makes the most of what she’s given. Not only does she get possessed, have her head cut off and get buried in a shallow grave – she’s able to reincarnate herself and dance in the moonlight before coming back for a chainsaw attack. Linda’s got moxie.

3: Emily Rose – The Exorcism Of Emily Rose

Not only did this 2005 film give us a pre “Dexter” Jennifer Carpenter, it firmly put future Sinister and Deliver Us From Evil director Scott Derrickson on the map. Almost as important? This is the movie that gets to yell “first” when it comes to the increased limbering up of our possessed subjects. If your exorcism movie has a yoga pose in it, you might just be ripping off this seminal film.

2: Rosemary – Demons

Lamberto Bava’s Demons is an insanely fun ride, and one of my favorite characters from the film is Geretta Giancarlo’s (aka Geretta Geretta) Rosemary. Her transformation is so sudden and her demonized presence so uniquely lustful of carnage it’s hard to get her out of your mind.

1: Regan – The Exorcist

Like there could be any other. When Linda Blair’s Regan fell under the possession of the demon Pazuzu film history was made with one of the most striking visual transformations in history. Not only does Regan not look like herself, not only does she levitate – she is utterly profane in every conceivable way. It also doesn’t hurt that William Friedkin concocted an all out masterpiece in this 1973 film, one of the best horror movies of all time.

The Beast Within Comes Special Delivery

Dread Central - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 12:30

The excellent found footage horror flick Delivery: The Beast Within (review) (or Delivery, as it was known in the UK) is finally headed to home video Stateside, and we have full details and lots of eye candy for you! Check it out!

From the Press Release
Los Angeles-based entertainment management and production company The Collective has acquired the U.S. rights to paranormal thriller DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN (aka DELIVERY) and will be releasing the feature in theaters and on VOD this May.

A limited theatrical run in NYC, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, and Indianapolis is set for May 30th with the movie hitting cable VOD on all major platforms three days prior on May 27th.

Directed by Brian Netto and produced by Adam Schindler (who also co-wrote the screenplay with Netto), DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN stars Laurel Vail, Danny Barclay, and Rob Cobuzio in the paranormal thriller that has been generating buzz since it premiered last summer at the L.A. Film Festival.

DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN tells the story of Kyle and Rachel Massy, a young couple who agree to document their first pregnancy for a family-oriented reality show. As the camera continues to capture strange events, Rachel begins to believe that a malevolent spirit has possessed their unborn child. Told through the show's un-aired footage and interviews with friends, family, and production members, this savvy debut feature leverages the voyeuristic properties of reality television to present a fresh perspective on classic horror themes of possession and the paranormal -- and delivers enough eeriness to keep you on the edge of your seat.

U.S. audiences will finally get a chance to see the movie that AintItCool called “...a horror movie you’re going to want to seek out” and Indiewire declared “a creepy-fun-scary flick that will leave you needing a hug” when it opens next month.

Dynamite Signs Warren Ellis

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 12:29

Dynamite Entertainment has scooped up Warren Ellis to relaunch their superhero lineup later this year according to their most recent press release. This marks the first time Ellis will work with the publisher. Dynamite has been trying hard to keep up with the other “indie” companies like Dark Horse and Image, and perhaps the Warren Ellis grit is just what their lineup needs. Check out some quotes and more details below.

From the press release:

April 17th, 2014, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite is honored to announce that Warren Ellis, one of the greatest and most respected comic book writers in comics, will be working with Dynamite for the very first time! Warren Ellis plans to take control of the Project Superpowers universe in late 2014, as Dynamite Entertainment continues to celebrate its 10th Anniversary.

“I’ve long been fascinated by the period in comics that produced these characters, and I’m very much looking forward to working out the strange, atmospheric take on the weird thriller that they inspired.  Also, it’s going to be a pleasure to finally do a job through the good offices of my old friend Nick Barrucci.”  – Warren Ellis

“I’ve wanted to work with Warren for many years, and have approached him more than a few times,” says Dynamite CEO / Publisher Nick Barrucci, “I can honestly say that when his schedule allowed for us to work together, I was speechless.  We’ve been waiting for the right creative vision to bring back Dynamite’s Superpowers Universe, and I can’t think of anyone better than Warren to do so.  I was elated that both came together.  He will make this series his own and will bring a larger audience to Dynamite’s Super Powers universe.  This is truly an honor to be working with him, as Warren elevates Dynamite to a new level.”

“Warren is truly a visionary storyteller and he’s been given carte blanche to reimagine these characters and this world,” adds Dynamite Senior Editor Joe Rybandt. “The results will appeal to his existing fans for sure, but the world he is creating is accessible to all from the start.”

Warren Ellis is a graphic novelist, columnist and author of the New York Times best-selling novel Gun Machine, which is currently being developed for television.  He has a novella, Normal, and a non-fiction book due from Farrar Straus Giroux in 2014.  RED 2, the sequel to the Bruce Willis-Helen Mirren film RED based on his book of the same name, was released in August 2013.  He holds the lifetime achievementprize from comics’ Eagle Awards and the NUIG President’s Medal for services to free speech.  He travels a lot and mostly lives in airplanes now.

Review: “Genesis” One Shot

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 12:17

 

 

With “Genesis” Nathan Edmonson and Alison Sampson craft an extended tale of ultimate creation. A man is granted with the ability to will anything he can think of into existence. This book is trippy. It will warp your mind by taking you on a journey of ultimate expression.  This liberating ability should bring ultimate fulfillment and gratification. Yet, through a deeply emotional look at the process of creation comes the emptiness of the action, and musings on what we could of done or should of done with our lives.

 

WRITTEN BY: Nathan Edmonson

ART BY: Alison Sampson

PUBLISHER: Image

PRICE: $6.99

RELEASE: April16, 2014

 

Adam is a man who has grown tired with his life. He has given himself to a higher power and still feels wildly unfulfilled. After making an attempt on his life he discovers he can create anything, and shape reality as he see’s fit. This power is seemingly benevolent, but the act of creation goes hand in hand with the act of destruction.

 

The narrative of  “Genesis” may ultimately mean different things for different people. I was lucky enough to speak with Nathan Edmonson about the book last month, and he was very candid about what parts of him were in the book. He had hoped there was nothing of him here, while conversely artist Alison Sampson leaves everything on the page.

This interesting dichotomy almost defines the book in and of itself. The act of ultimate creation may mean everything to someone or nothing to another person. Being able to create infinite worlds almost takes away from the beauty of something with confines, something within a space. Whereas Sampson’s art defies the confines of the page, natural space and architecture are seemingly expanded with every successive panel.

As Adam listlessly drifts through his new life the book takes on an increasingly somber tone. It’s unclear what this is supposed to mean to him, or what it means to us. His raw power disrupts the fine balancing act that brings form to the universe and allows Sampson to alter reality as she sees fit. Often pages are completely torn asunder with incredibly vivid and imaginative spins on reality, be it whirling vortexes, or mountainous coils of debris made to look like buildings or winding paths.

The narrative deals with existential doubt in a bold and provocative way that isn’t concerned with giving answers. Instead the readers are left to make their own conclusions about the process on the page. Is Adam’s power a gift or a curse?  Has he already died, or has he brought on the end of existence for everyone else. There is absolutely no clarity surrounding those issues, but the questions are the strength of the piece.

The art of creation is something creatives struggle with on a daily basis. What is too much, what is too little, and what will find it’s audience. “Genesis” takes the insecurity around those issues and blows it up to monumental proportions. It’s a dense and layered one shot that challenges you to ask questions, while treating your eyes to a feast of wild and imaginative design.

 

Rating: 3.5/5 Skulls.

Unstable Ground to Adapt “Kane” Into Feature

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 11:15

Canadian production company Unstable Ground has acquired the film rights to Douglas Borton’s horror novel “Kane”, Bloody Disgusting learned.

The project is now in development, and will be scripted by Serena Whitney and Justin McConnell (The Collapsed, Skull World). Whitney and McConnell will also co-­‐produce, along with prolific Canadian-­‐producer Avi Federgreen (Still Mine, One Week, High Life). The team is rounded out by two highly-­respected genre directors, who currently serve as consulting producers: Adam Mason (Blood River, The Devil’s Chair, Broken), and George Mihalka (My Bloody Valentine, 24 Hour Rental). A director has yet to be named.

Kane is a force of nature. Walking out of the desert into the dying town of Tuskett, which only 23 people still call home, he has only one purpose: to kill every resident. Relentless, stealthy, and without mercy, Kane won’t stop until every last man, woman and child is nothing but a memory. Soon the surviving townspeople must band together to fight this seemingly-­‐unstoppable evil, or die trying. Brutal, action-­‐ packed, and most importantly, character-­‐driven, Kane is a thrilling story of survival at any cost.

Go Inside the Minds of Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 11:06

Broadcast Thought is the collective name for a creative cabal of three forensic psychiatrists (H. Eric Bender, M.D., Praveen R. Kambam, M.D., and Vasilis K. Pozios, M.D.) who also happen to have a vast and unquenchable thirst for pop culture knowledge. I can say this with a modicum of authority since I’ve been working with them on an upcoming special feature for the site that I think you will all will really, really enjoy.

In you’re in the Los Angeles/Anaheim area, you can get a sense of what they’re all about this Saturday, April 19th at 730PM. That’s when their Flashback to the Slash Pack Panel goes down at Wondercon. You’ll definitely want to be there as they delve into the psyches of Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers.

Also on the panel is screenwriter Mark Swift who, along with Damian Shannon, wrote Freddy Vs. Jason and the 2009 installment of Friday The 13th (one of my personal favorites in the franchise). Swift cares deeply about the mythology of these characters and, as someone who has written several scripts from their point of view, should be a great addition to the evening.

Follow BTdocs (pictured below) and Shannon and Swift on Twitter and be sure to head down and check out this event. I’ll be in the audience, feel free to say hi!

‘APP’ Syncs Into Theaters This May

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 10:11

RAM Releasing, the genre shingle under New York-based distributor Film Movement, today announces the complete US theatrical and VOD release locations for the release of APP, Bobby Boermans’ thriller that is the first film made with the intentional inclusion of content on a second, mobile screen. The accompanying app, IRIS, is equipped with sonic technology that triggers additional content during the movie – off-screen text messages between characters, an alternative angle in a scene, and more. The IRIS app can be downloaded to iPhone or Android for free now by texting IRIS to 97-000.

Anna lives with her best friend Sophie, and balances psychology classes with supporting her brother and his recovery following a traumatic motorcycle accident. She’s never far from her cellphone, and after a night of partying in the dorms, Anna wakes up groggy and hungover only to find that a new app has been inexplicably added to it. Initially helpful and clever, IRIS soon begins behaving mysteriously, answering personal questions it shouldn’t know the answers to, and sending inappropriate images to her contacts. When it becomes clear she can’t simply delete the unwanted, evil app, Anna’s efforts to confront it will set in motion a fearful series of events that will put her life, and that of her roommate and her fragile brother, in fatal danger.

APP represents the single largest release in the history of RAM parent company Film Movement, hitting 24 theatrical markets, 11 major cable VOD providers (Armstrong; Blue Ridge; Cablevision; Charter; Comcast; Cox; Frontier; Insight; Mediacom; Service Electric; TimeWarner; Verizon) and 6 top streaming VOD outlets (iTunes; Amazon Video; Google Play; Xbox Network; Playstation Network; Vudu) on May 9th.

[Exclusive] Nick Damici and Michael Gill Get ‘Condemned’!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 10:11

I’m here in New York on the set of Caliber Media’s Condemned, which has taken over a four story building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. While I can’t share much until the film is closer to release, I can say that what I’ve seen is gory, gooey and looks like a ton of fun. The movie seems to have a sense of humor, but at the same time doesn’t pull any punches.

I can also exclusively report that Stake Land and Late Phases star Nick Damici (pictured above from the set) and Michael Gill (pictured below; “House Of Cards”) have been added to the cast of the film. Damici plays “Hoobler”, a reclusive squatter who tries to help the group of kids escape from the building alive. Gill will portray a CDC agent trying to contain the infection plaguing the film.

Dylan Penn plays the lead role of Maya “the youngest member of a group of kids who live in a condemned, filthy squat in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. After an infection originating from their own waste hits the building’s residents, the people inside lose their mind and go on murderous rampages.

Johnny Messner, Ronen Rubinstein, Shawn Christensen, Jon Abrahams, Jordan Gelber, Genevieve Hudson-Price, Anthony Chisholm, Kevin Kirkwood, Kea Ho, Michael Drayer, Lydia Hearst and Honor Titus also star.

Eli Morgan Gesner is directing the film, based on his original screenplay. Caliber Media’s Dallas Sonnier, Jack Heller and Jason Sokoloff are producing.

“Catfish” and ‘Paranormal’ Duo Hope to Go ‘Viral’

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 09:44

The irony of the title.

Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman of “Catfish” fame, as well as Paranormal Activity 3 and Paranormal Activity 4, are set to get behind the camera for TWC-Weinstein’s long-gestured Peste, now being released as Viral with Blumhouse producing.

Barbara Marshall and Chris Landon both worked on the script that “follows teenager Emma Drakeford, struggling after a recent family tragedy, who begins a video documentary about her life for a school project. Everything goes crazy when a terrifying virus sweeps through her small town, turning her friends and neighbors into vicious monsters. Quarantined with her family, Emma believes they are out of harm’s way but when the contagion finally infiltrates their home Emma and her family are faced with an impossible decision – if someone you love becomes a threat, do you kill them in cold blood or save them at the risk of your own life?

‘Hide and Seek’ Art Discovered (Exclusive)

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 09:20

RAM Releasing, a division of arthouse distributor Film Movement currently building its inaugural genre film slate, has shared with Bloody an exclusive look at the DVD art for Hide and Seek, Jung Huh’s critically acclaimed thriller that was the 8th highest grossing film at the South Korean Box office in 2013 and is the fastest grossing Korean thriller of all time.

Nominated for two Blue Dragon Film Awards, including Best Actress for Jung-hee Moon and Best New Director, Hide and Seek is an electrifying debut by writer/director Jung, resulting in a new kind of South Korean thriller that recalls the work of such acclaimed modern masters as Kim-Ji Woon (I Saw the Devil) and Na Hong-Jin (The Chaser).

Hide and Seek is now available via Cable VOD from In Demand Networks, available on providers including Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox, Brighthouse and more. In addition, Hide and Seek will be available on DVD from RAM Releasing on June 10, 2014.

Additional features include a 26-minute making-of featurette and the original theatrical trailer.

Sung-soo (Son Hyun Ju) has everything: a beautiful wife and children, a comfortable home and luxury car, and plenty of money in the bank. When he learns that his estranged brother has gone missing, he visits his apartment in search of answers. Unsettled by the shabby, half-empty apartment complex, he quickly notices strange symbols inscribed under the doorbells and the terrified residents who hurriedly lock their doors at the sight of an outsider. The disturbing visit follows Sung-soo and his family home, as they soon find themselves stalked by a mysterious masked figure, and the same strange symbols appear under their doorbell. With his own nightmares escalating out of control, Sung-soo must face his most primal fears to reveal the shocking truth behind the intensifying horror.

UK singer/songwriter/producer Imogen Heap is already known as one of the most innovative and unique musicians around, thanks to her love of using whatever instruments she wants to create a rich, layered song. Now she’s adding a strong sense of theatricality to her live performances by showing off Mi.Mu, a musical glove system that allows you to control sound with hand gestures.

Heap first showed this off at a TED performance back in 2011 but now a really good look at it was demonstrated on Dara O’Briain’s ‘Science Club’. You can help fund the Kickstarter here. Head below for two video demonstrations.
