As he pieces together scant information he discovers the local police are hiding details about a horrific serial killer. In his obsessive search for answers, he loses his grip on reality, and spirals downward into a maelstrom of violence and terror.

NCAA Championship Game Theme Edited to ‘The Shining’

bloody disgusting - Mon, 04/06/2015 - 13:20

CBS annually destroys the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Game with a montage edited to the god-awful tune of David Barrett’s “One Shining Moment”.

Andrew Unterman linked us to his clever video montage (made with his friend Jason) that instead plays the song over a montage from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.

While the joke is only funny for the length of time it takes to hit the “play” button, it’s still a great Shining montage that I thought you guys would get a kick out of.

It is indeed “One Shining Moment”.

Green Lantern To Boldly Go Meet Star Trek This July

bloody disgusting - Mon, 04/06/2015 - 12:40

This past weekend at Wondercon, IDW Publishing and DC Comics announced a crossover many lightyears in the making: Star Trek Meets Green Lantern. The news should come as no surprise, as the crossover makes total sense, it’s just mind blowing it took this long to go down. The two properties represent ripe science fiction worlds that are perfect for crossover, and despite existing in very different corners of the universe a unifying story thread could create a compelling chapter in the mythos of both.

In brightest day, in blackest night. Two iconic franchises will meet this summer in a legendary crossover event with the release of a six-part comic book miniseries, STAR TREK/GREEN LANTERN: THE SPECTRUM WAR. Both Star Trekand Green Lantern are known for their strong cast of interstellar characters and when they come together for the first time this July, fans new and old are sure to experience a galaxy-sized thrill.

STAR TREK/GREEN LANTERN: THE SPECTRUM WAR is six-part monthly mini-series and will be written by veteran Star Trekcomic writer Mike Johnson with interior art by Angel Hernandez (INFINITE CRISIS: FIGHT FOR THE MULTIVERSE, ARROW). STAR TREK/GREEN LANTERN: THE SPECTRUM WAR #1 will be available in stores and online in July, boasting covers fromGabriel Rodriguez, Francesco Francavilla, Elsa Charretier, and Garry Brown. Following issues will feature covers from an amazing lineup that includes Declan ShalveyMarc Laming, and more!

“We’ve looked forward to bringing these two iconic universes together for a long time,” said Greg Goldstein, IDW President and COO. “Star Trek and Green Lantern both share so many of the same science-fiction adventure themes and ideals, that a galaxy-spanning crossover like this is simply…logical.”

“Green Lantern is one of the most popular, storied characters in the history of comic books and a modern DC Comics icon.

An entire universe of Green Lanterns and other supporting characters have grown out from his original adventures in the 1940’s, and this series really showcases the intergalactic scope of the franchise,” said Bob Harras, Editor-in-Chief of DC Comics.

A pop culture mainstay for almost 50 years, Star Trek’s fan base continues to grow exponentially with the new feature films in 2009 and 2013. Now all Star Trek fans can watch their favorite U.S.S. Enterprise crew members meet Hal Jordan and the entire Green Lantern Corps in an adventure that spans space, time and all the colors of the spectrum. Set in Star Trek’s 23rd Century, the balance of the universe will be tested when the Green Lantern Corps’ Power Rings come into the possession of certain Star Trek characters while a dark and powerful evil looms around every corner.  Only the combined power of the Green Lantern Corp and the Federation stand any chance of stopping those who worship evil’s might.

[Review] ‘The Dead Lands’ Brutalizes Amidst the Beauty of New Zealand

bloody disgusting - Mon, 04/06/2015 - 12:28

Like many indigenous peoples, New Zealand’s Maori don’t receive a lot of attention internationally. Toa Frasier looked to change that with his 2014 film The Dead Lands, which had it’s world premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. And even though it wasn’t nominated, The Dead Lands was also on the list of entries for Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards. Calling to mind Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto, The Dead Lands swaps out the Maya for Maori pre-colonial tribal warfare. But does Frasier do more with the film than that?

While observing a peacekeeping mission between two clans, sixteen-year-old Hongi (James Rolleston), the son of tribal chieftain Tane (George Henare), witnesses a deliberate desecration of ancestral remains by Wirepa (Te Kohe Tuhaka). After confronting Wirepa, Hongi is accused of trying to renew hostilities. Later that night, Hongi’s people are massacred by Wirepa and his group. Left for dead, Hongi survives and must now avenge his people in order to bring peace and honour to the dead. Outnumbered and no warrior himself, Hongi travels to the forbidden Dead Lands in search of The Warrior (Lawrence Makoare) for help in his quest.

Probably one of the first things that will grab viewers is the downright gorgeous cinematography by Leon Narbey. Fans of Peter Jackson’s work on the Lord Of The Rings films know just how beautiful New Zealand can be, and with The Dead Lands, it’s again on display. Even during the more tense moments of Hongi’s quest, the New Zealand landscape never ceases to amaze. Of course, the other component of this film is it’s action. Being that this is the first film to feature the Maori martial art of Mau rakau, it instantly sets it apart from other action fare. And while it’s not a constant balls-to-the-wall barrage, the rapid-fire cutting of the almost in-your-face fight sequences more than make up for it with a frenetic energy that delivers on a visceral level. Plus, who doesn’t love the Maori haka dances? The wide-eyed gazes and the bulging tongues of the combatants is always a sight to see.

To go along with the action, the quality of the acting is definitely up there. The performances, however, take a backseat to the Maori language, which is a major component to the acting, if not the film itself. Not only is the language a key portion of their warrior culture (there’s that haka dance again), it also immediately lends authenticity and credibility to the film. With that aside, Makoare is a standout as The Warrior. Perpetually an imposing screen presence, Makoare also exhibits an intimate range as well, waxing philosophy on his past with Hongi. Even as he’s casually slicing up a corpse for dinner. As for Hongi, Rolleston puts in a great “coming-of-age” performance as Hongi grows and matures into a warrior. Tuhaka is also great as the film’s antagonist, sporting good looks with an arrogant pride that has you wanting him to meet his fate in the worst way possible.

As far as flaws go (even though it really isn’t a flaw), the film defies the typical action film mould, opting to have more of a deeper story than something you’d normally expect. As such, those looking for a pure action film that doesn’t involve the maturing of a man who has been thrust into the role of avenger will find the quieter moments frustrating. Also, the film’s ending does lend itself to an anti-war message, though it lacks a certain resonance after the majority of the film was focused on cracking skulls and revenge.

Still, The Dead Lands provides not only some great action and introduction of the Maori to many international filmgoers, but also shines a light on the Maori pre-colonial history, even if this is a fictionalized account. The stunning New Zealand landscape is on display once again, and the reliance on Maori language and Mau rakau certainly makes the film stand out even more. Action film aficionados looking for more fare outside the often-tiring conformities of Hollywood should definitely check this one out.

[TV Review] “Salem” Episode 2.01: ‘Cry Havoc’

bloody disgusting - Mon, 04/06/2015 - 11:09

The first season of WGN’s Salem had a bit of a rocky start. I admit that I watched the first three episodes and gave up because I found the show to be a little boring. I finally caved a few months ago and binge-watched the rest on Netflix and I’m incredibly glad I did. Salem finally embraced its soapy ridiculousness and went balls to the wall insane in it’s second half. Now we have been gifted with a second season, so lets dive right in to how it has started.

First of all, it has been 3 days since the events of the finale, and the Grand Rite that Mary performed at the end of last season worked. The town of Salem is slowly being taken over by the plague (starting with the people in the hilariously named “Knocker’s Hole”), but apparently it will take a month (er, a season) for it to take full effect. Alright. It sort of makes the stakes of the season 1 finale seem nonexistent, but I’ll take it. If anything we did get some pretty great practical effects when the girls face started peeling off in the opening scene. Also, we get our beloved Isaac the Fornicator back. He’s ridden with pox but he’s not dead yet!

Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) has been keeping herself busy with her son, but Tituba takes him back to the elder witch’s every night. I’m still not sure about how I feel about John Jr. as a plot device (he seems like he could become a problem rather quickly), but I’ll withhold judgment for a few episodes. Also in Mary’s inner circle is the new Doctor in town (Stuart Townsend). He’s a survivor of the pox who aims to cure Salem of the plague.

Let’s talk about the gory set pieces from the night. First, Mercy cuts off a mans penis and turns it into a crow(?!). That is some crazy shit. But then we also have Mary going to a seer (that’s what I’ve decided I’m going to call him) so she can find Alden. He pulls out his eyes and places them in her hands so she see his location, but she is tricked into seeing his funeral (spoiler: he’s not dead). Lastly, we have Mercy’s butchering of the elder witches. After stabbing them (a lot) Mercy and her followers hang them up in the town square by their own intestines. WGN is clearly trying to test the limits of what they can get away with on basic (and I mean basic) cable. I like it. More of this please.

Speaking of Mercy, she is still crazy in the woods and super bummed that Mary won’t accept her as her equal. I’m guessing Mary is really regretting not killing Mercy last season. Anne, on the other hand, does garner Mary’s attention. Anne is (understandably) feeling guilty about murdering her parents last season, and Mary wants to help her learn to control her powers. Anne was one of the weakest parts of last season for me (she’s such a wet blanket), but this could prove to be an interesting path to take her one. Again, it’s too early to tell if it will pay off, but I have my fingers crossed.

Cotton (Seth Gabel) is stuck in Boston, doing Cotton-y things like having lots and lots of sex. When he’s not having sex, he’s suffering a guilty conscience after murdering his father Increase (I still can’t believe that was his name) in last season’s finale.

Through Cotton’s scenes we get the biggest reveal of the episode, though, as a man comes to interrogate him about his father’s whereabouts. As it turns out, this man merely serves to introduce us to the totally awesome Lucy Lawless! After questioning Cotton, this man runs back to a ship at Boston harbor and inside we meet Lawless’ Countess Palatine Ingrid von Marburg (to be referenced as Countess Marburg here on out because that is a mouthful). The man is her henchman, and after she finds out that Increase if officially dead, she kills the poor sap by teleporting her bath water into his throat, choking him to death.

Countess Marburg’s mission isn’t clear yet, but since her scene ends with her deciding to head to Salem, one can only assume that her and Mary will cross paths. Is she a villain or will she be on Mary’s side? I’m intrigued.

The only character who still isn’t doing much for me is John Alden. I like Shane West a lot (he was great on the CW’s Nikita), but Alden is an incredibly boring character. Every time he popped up in the premiere it was like he couldn’t be gone soon enough. Now Alden is on a mission to destroy all the witches in Salem because he feels betrayed after Mary stood him up last season. I get it, she’s a witch and worships the devil. But I find it a little hard to believe that he wouldn’t even try to rationalize his feelings since she is apparently the love of his life, but whatever. Now he’s hanging out with the Native Americans and by episode’s end has taken part in a ritual that will help him kill all of the witches, but it is made clear that he won’t leave Salem alive once it is done (how much do you want to bet he doesn’t die by the end of the season?).

I thought this was a fantastic episode to start off Salem’s second season. It had some batshit insane witch action and provided plenty of questions for the rest of the season. I think the season’s subtitle of “Witch Wars” will prove to inject a spark into the series that was missing from the first half of last season. Also, Lucy Lawless.

Random Notes

  • Welcome to Bloody-Disgusting’s weekly reviews of Salem everyone! I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. Next week’s review will be shorter (and less recap-y), I promise. Premiere reviews just have a lot of catch-up!
  • Mary refers to the elder witches as “decrepit old shits in the woods.”
  • Ashley Madekwe (Tituba) has completely dropped her accent. As annoying as this is, I’m sort of okay with it because it dropped in and out so much last season that she needed to make up her mind.
  • “Rest assured your traitorous little bitch, once they’ve tasted it, you will choke on it.” For being set in the 1600s, Salem has some great zingers.
  • That portrait of Increase Mather is TERRIFYING.
  • Seriously though, I feel like 75% of Cotton’s scenes in the first season were scenes of him having sex. That doesn’t seem to be changing this season.
  • One good thing to come out of Alden’s scenes: he finally got a haircut.
  • Have I mentioned that I love Lucy Lawless? I’ve seen a little bit of Xena but she was the best part of Spartacus. If you’ve never seen it, do yourself a favor and watch it ASAP. It’s on Netflix! Just get past the pilot because it’s the worst episode of the series.

Rob Zombie Introduces ’31′ Mechanic, Played By Jeff Daniel Phillips

bloody disgusting - Mon, 04/06/2015 - 09:55

Last week Rob Zombie revealed his Doom-Head and his Sister Dragon from his now-filming Halloween slasher 31, which wraps today in Los Angeles.

This morning he shared our first ever look at ‘Roscoe’ (Jeff Daniel Phillips), which Zombie describes as “the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show.” Apparently, in the image, he’s about to meet his new best friend.

“31 follows five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large secret compound known as Murder World.

Once there, they have 12 hours to survive a terrifying game called 31 in which ‘The Heads’- murderous maniacs dressed as clowns – are released to hunt them down and kill them.”

Jeff Daniel Phillips will play ‘Roscoe’, the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show.

Malcolm McDowell plays ‘Father Murder’, the owner of Murder World for which the film is based.

Judy Geeson plays ‘Sister Dragon’, who runs Murder World alongside McDowell. She joins David Ury, who will be playing ‘Schizo-Head’, one half of murderous team of brothers living inside Murder World. Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs was recently cast as ‘Panda Thomas’, with Elizabeth Daily (E.G. Daily) playing ‘Sex-head’, and Torsten Voges as the insane partner of Death-Head. Ginger Lynn is featured as ‘Cherry Bomb’, a very special friend of Doom-Head (portrayed by Richard Brake), as was Jane Carr, who will portray ‘Sister Serpent’, a wicked cross of Satan meets Mother Goose. Pancho Moler will be seen as ‘Sick-Head’, and Tracy Walter stars as ‘Lucky Leo.’

Daniel Roebuck plays ‘Paster Victor’, an unfortunate participant in last year’s game of 31.

Lew Temple, Devin Sidell and Sheri Moon Zombie also star.

While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. At first they think it’s a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something from beyong this world, something that wants them dead.

Shelley Hennig, Moses Storm, Renee Olstead, Will Peltz, Jacob Wysocki, Courtney Halverson, and Heather Sossaman star.

The film was developed and conceived by Timur Bekmambetov and directed by Levan Gabriadze from a script by Nelson Greaves.

UPDATED: David Lynch Will Not Be Working On The New ‘Twin Peaks’

bloody disgusting - Sun, 04/05/2015 - 19:16

Update, 9:19pm EST: According to Deadline, Showtime has released the following statement, which offers some hope in this situation:

We were saddened to read David Lynch’s statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points. SHOWTIME also loves the world of Twin Peaks and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm.

Director David Lynch has confirmed through a series of tweets that he will not be working on the 3rd season of the cult classic murder mystery series Twin Peaks. He writes that this is due to an inability between Showtime and himself to reach a budget, “…to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.

Word was spreading that the 3rd season was cancelled but that appears to not be the case. This is still very disheartening and sad news as Lynch’s style is what made the original two seasons so enchanting and charming.

We’ll be keeping an eye on the situation and reporting as more is learned.

Dear Twitter Friends, Showtime did not pull the plug on Twin Peaks.

— David Lynch (@DAVID_LYNCH) April 5, 2015

After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.

— David Lynch (@DAVID_LYNCH) April 5, 2015

This weekend I started to call actors to let them know I would not be directing. Twin Peaks may still be very much alive at Showtime.

— David Lynch (@DAVID_LYNCH) April 5, 2015

I love the world of Twin Peaks and wish things could have worked out differently.

Remember When “Critters 2″ Killed the Easter Bunny?

bloody disgusting - Sun, 04/05/2015 - 13:01

Easter isn’t exactly the most friendly holiday to us horror fans. It’s one of the only major holidays that barely has any movies themed after it. Sure, there have been movies set around Easter (Dead Snow) but none really made for the holiday. That sort of makes sense, since it’s a Christian Holiday and all, but if Christmas can have it, why not Easter? One movie that “went there” was the 1988 horror sequel Critters 2: The Main Course when it killed the Easter Bunny.

I have an unabashed love for the Critters films. Since I wasn’t allowed to watch R-rated movies as a kid, I lived off of PG and PG-13 80s horror movies. Critters was one of my earliest discoveries and I spent pretty much the entire summer of 1999 watching the first 3 films on a loop. I just couldn’t get enough!

The second film is the one I probably watched the most. It has everything a Critters film should have. It’s funny, there are returning characters (I still can’t believe Brad from these films is the voice of Steve on American Dad!), many people die, and the Critters themselves are up to no good! There’s also that really cool effect of the giant Critter ball. It expands the scope of the first film in such a way that rather than have the Critters fighting with a single family, they wage a war against the entire town.

But what makes the film really stand out is the scene where the Critters kill a man dressed up in an Easter Bunny costume outside of a church. It’s a goofy set piece, to be sure. But that’s what makes it so memorable! So enjoy seeing the Easter Bunny get the shit kicked out of him and then being tossed through a church window in the middle of a sermon. Happy Easter everyone!

These Horror-Themed Easter Eggs are Amazing!

Happy Easter everyone! I spent many Aprils decorating eggs with my family (I used to love dyeing eggs as a kid) so I thought I’d share with you some pretty fantastic horror-themed Easter eggs that I found while perusing the internet. I would love to participate in an Easter Egg hunt with all of the people who created these eggs!

Zombie Easter Egg

I love the creativity with this one. It’s got a great blue-green shell with part of the top removed to expose the “zombie’s” brain. they even gave it a little suit!
