Daryl Finally Gets His Own The Walking Dead #Terminus Poster; Join Tonight's Twitter Takeover

Sun, 03/30/2014 - 15:40

A few days ago we wondered when Daryl Dixon would be gracing one of the #Terminus posters for AMC's Arrive/Survive promo campaign, and obviously the network decided to save the best for last because with just hours to go until the Season 4 finale, Episode 4.16, "A", here he is!

Along with showing you Norman Reedus' "Who Will Survive?" artwork, we have info on tonight's "The Walking Dead" Twitter Takeover.

The cast and crew are taking over @walkingdead_amc and will be live tweeting using hashtag #askTWD before the episode airs from 6-9 pm ET (that's 3-6 pm PT for the West Coasters). Get your questions in now!

No plans for today? Then catch up on what transpired this season during AMC's all-day "TWD" marathon. And be sure to tune in after the finale for "Talking Dead" with executive producer Scott M. Gimple and star Andrew Lincoln.

We also heard that the very last line of the finale is critical to what's going to take place from here on out so make sure you set your DVRs for a few extra minutes just in case it runs long, and check back here after you watch to cry on our shoulders, vent your frustrations, speculate about Season 5, praise (or damn) the showrunners... whatever you need!

A Shocking Twist Awaits in this Preview and Half Dozen Stills from Hannibal Episode 2.06 - Futamono

Sat, 03/29/2014 - 11:00

Actually, these photos and preview of next week's Episode 2.06 of "Hannibal," entitled "Futamono," don't show much, but NBC's synopsis reveals something rather spoilery. So skim through the text if you want to avoid it and focus on the eye candy.

"Hannibal" Episode 2.06 - "Futamono" (airs 3/28/14; 10-11PM): SUSPICIONS RISE ABOUT HANNIBAL WHEN HE THROWS A DINNER PARTY WHILE THE CHESAPEAKE RIPPER IS ON A KILLING SPREE - When a city councilman’s body is found in a parking lot, intertwined with a tree, the artistry and missing organs suggest the work of the Chesapeake Ripper.

Jack (Laurence Fishburne) and the team race against time to catch the Ripper while he’s still on his killing spree. When Will (Hugh Dancy) suggests the possibility that the Ripper is filling his pantry with the victims’ organs, Jack crashes Hannibal Lecter’s (Mads Mikkelsen) dinner party to collect evidence and test the meat for human DNA. Jack’s growing suspicions drive Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) even closer to Hannibal, believing he is the victim of a witch hunt.

Meanwhile, clues from the tree man help the BAU zero in on a location they believe the Ripper used. There they discover the most shocking revelation of Jack Crawford’s career—Miriam Lass alive.

Also starring Aaron Abrams, Scott Thompson, Raúl Esparza, Eddie Izzard, and Anna Chlumsky.

The Scream Factory Delivers Another Release Without Warning; Full Summer of Fear Release Slate Revealed

Fri, 03/28/2014 - 20:54

As if we needed any more reasons to want to cuddle The Scream Factory until our arms dropped off lifeless and withered, they announced today that another little known classic from the 1980s is on its way!

Via the Scream Factory Facebook Page
We are very thrilled to report that we are bringing Greydon Clark’s 1980 alien/slasher cult classic WITHOUT WARNING to DVD & Blu-ray for the first time this August! This long-overdue release has been requested several times since we started the brand so we know many of you just jumped for joy. (We're jumping too!) What makes this even more exciting is that this title has never been released on ANY home entertainment format in the U.S. or Canada (and is often bootlegged as some of you can attest to) so to be able to bring this out period is a feat in itself.

No further details to report back at this time but we'll keep you posted on developments in a few months. The artwork you see - which uses the original theatrical poster - is final.(However, the flipside will have the other poster art some of you may remember with a girl running from flying alien discs.)

Our "Summer of Fear" release slate is now completed. Starting in May, the mayhem includes:

MAY
Final Exam
Evilspeak
Nosferatu
House in the Alley
Sleepaway Camp (Collector's Edition)

JUNE
Ravenous
The Monkey's Paw

JULY
The Final Terror
Lake Placid (Collector's Edition)
Deadly Eyes
Ginger Snaps (Collector's Edition)

AUGUST
Phantom of the Paradise (Collector's Edition)
Motel Hell (Collector's Edition)
Leviathan
The Legend of Hell House
Dog Soldiers (Collector's Edition)
Without Warning

Note: We are still working on trying bring HELLHOLE back into the mix too after pulling it for film element issues. We'll keep you posted but this one has been putting us through some “hell” of sorts.

For fans itching for further title announcements, we’re going to be a little quiet for awhile (at least a month) so please be patient. We have several more tricks up our sleeves!

Be happy!

Get Another Look at Rosemary's Baby

Fri, 03/28/2014 - 17:53

Right now we have several new stills on tap from NBC's reimagined "Rosemary's Baby." Check 'em out, and please practice safe sex or risk the chance of accidentally shooting the devil's child out of your sac. Remember, kids: Wear a rubber!

This new adaptation of “Rosemary’s Baby” centers on a young married couple who escapes New York and moves to Paris with hopes of leaving their sad past behind.

After a series of unfortunate events, Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse are presented with an offer they can’t refuse – an apartment at the most prestigious address in the city. Problem is, it comes with a haunted past and an immeasurable price.

Rosemary (Zoe Saldana; Avatar, Star Trek Into Darkness) and Guy (Patrick J. Adams; “Suits”) are incredulous at their good fortune and find comfort in a strange city among their new friends and neighbors, the Castevets. This well-to-do successful older couple takes the newcomers under their wing and become very involved with the Woodhouses’ lives. Things seem to be perfect as Rosemary becomes pregnant and Guy’s career takes off. As their spirited best friend, Guy’s co-worker Julie (Christina Cole), spends quality time with Rosemary in the city, she finds Rosemary’s health worrying and cautions both of them that something isn’t right. Soon there are other signs warning Rosemary to be careful.

Guy seems to be pulling away from Rosemary and spending a great deal of time hanging around with Roman Castevet (Jason Isaacs; Harry Potter franchise). Roman’s wife, the whimsical Margaux Castevet (Carole Bouquet; For Your Eyes Only), assures Rosemary her herbs and holistic medicine will help with the pregnancy, but are they helping or hurting? Rosemary’s quizzical nature leads her to investigate the building and its past residents. She uncovers a dark past and realizes who Roman Castevet truly is. But is it too late? Are the Castavets’ perceived sinister motives legitimate or all in the pregnancy brain of Rosemary?

In this new four-hour, two-part psychological thriller written by Scott Abbott (Queen of the Damned) and James Wong (Final Destination 3, “American Horror Story,” “The X-Files”) and directed by Agnieszka Holland (Europa Europa, “The Wire,” “Treme”), Rosemary quickly finds herself surrounded by peculiar people and startling occurrences. Isolated in her apartment in a city where she doesn’t speak the language, she begins to fear the worst: Guy may have made a pact with their neighbors, promising their newborn as a human sacrifice in occult rituals in exchange for a writing career. To what lengths would someone be willing to go for success and fortune?

“Rosemary’s Baby” is executive produced by Joshua D. Maurer, Alixandre Witlin, and David Stern and produced by City Entertainment, KippSter Entertainment, and Lionsgate Television.

Fri, 03/28/2014 - 17:46

Vertical Entertainment's latest horror acquisition, the Jaume Collet-Serra produced flick Mindscape from Ombra Films and StudioCanal, has gotten a new title and some updated artwork!

Bloody Disgusting reports that the film will now be called simply Anna. On VOD and in theaters on June 6th via Vertical Entertainment, the film stars Mark Strong, “American Horror Story’s” Taissa Farmiga, and Brian Cox.

Synopsis:
John (Strong) is a recently widowed man with the ability to enter people's memories. In the past John used his abilities to solve criminal cases, but after a stroke during a session gone wrong that left him incapacitated and financially broken, he is but a shell of his former self.

Desperate for an assignment, John asks his superior, Sebastian, for a new job. The case he receives is that of a troubled girl, Anna (Farmiga), who has begun a hunger strike. While the parameters of the job seem quite simple, Anna proves to be much more challenging than John expected. She's intelligent, insightful… and possibly one of the most conniving and manipulative people that he's come across in his career.

As John delves deeper into her memories to discover the reason for her hunger strike, everyone surrounding Anna's life becomes a suspect - her family, her nurse, even his old mentor Sebastian himself.

Theatrical Release Date Announced for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

Fri, 03/28/2014 - 16:55

MPI/Dark Sky Films has announced a June 20th theatrical release for the newly restored version of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. The re-release comes in celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary. A DVD and Blu-ray release will surely follow. Stay tuned!

In 1973, Tobe Hooper, a cast of unknown actors, and a crew of Austin film students and recent graduates headed to Round Rock, Texas in the middle of July. For the next 32 days they worked around the clock in 100 degree weather to make The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

The movie became a huge hit on the drive-in circuit and eventually grossed $30 million. It was invited to the 1975 Cannes Film Festival Director’s Fortnight and was acquired as part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Since then, it has become the eighth highest-grossing horror franchise of all time. In 2012, Sight & Sound magazine named it one of the 250 most important movies ever made.

The new version of the film will be released in theaters this summer with a brand new 4K transfer, roughly four times the resolution of today’s more commonly used 2K for cinema. This is the only transfer of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre to go back to the original 16mm A/B rolls, the actual film that rolled through the cameras.

The Predator Invades New Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation DLC

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 21:44

The last bit of DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts saw famed slasher Michael Myers bring his unique brand of hacking and slashing to the playing field. What's coming next sounds like a true no-brainer! Get ready, kids! The hunt is on!

On April 3rd, Call of Duty: Ghosts will get the Devastation downloadable content pack, which will be offered first on the Xbox One and the 360... those playing the shooter on other platforms will be able to access it about a month later.

The news came via Call of Duty on Instagram, who posted the following teaser video along with the caption "If it bleeds..." Kind of safe to assume what comes next, no?

Call of Duty: Ghosts will receive another two content drops after the launch of Devastation, probably in May and June.

Latest Raid 2: Berandal Clip Wrecks a Restaurant!

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 19:49

Another new clip from The Raid 2: Berandal (review) has arrived, and though we're usually down on watching multitudes of clips, given this flick has a 2-1/2-hour run time and the fact that so far it's playing nowhere near many of us, we'll take what we can get!

Iko Uwais (The Raid), Julie Estelle (Macabre), Alex Abbad (Merantau), Marsha Timothy (The Forbidden Door), Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, and Cecep Arif Rahman star.

Synopsis
He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen – a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls – rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldn’t have been more wrong.

Formidable though they may have been, Rama’s opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap.

And so Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, a journey that will force him to set aside his own life and history and take on a new identity as the violent offender “Yuda.” In prison he must gain the confidence of Uco – the son of a prominent gang kingpin – to join the gang himself, laying his own life on the line in a desperate all-or-nothing gambit to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end.

Meet War Veteran John Alden - One of the People of Salem

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 16:53

Another video introducing us to the "People of Salem" has arrived, this time focusing on hardened war veteran John Alden (Shane West), who returns to his native Salem to find it consumed in a witch hunt frenzy.

In “Salem” witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.

“Salem,” premiering on Sunday, April 20th, enters the world of the most notorious witch trials in history, a period steeped in fear, suspicion, and hysteria. On an expansive set in Shreveport, Louisiana, built to reflect volatile 17th century Massachusetts, “Salem” explores what really fueled the town's infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them.

Created, executive produced, and written by award-winning writer/producer Brannon Braga (“24,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise”) and Adam Simon (The Haunting in Connecticut), “Salem” stars Janet Montgomery (“Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”) as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress; Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”) as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden – and Mary’s onetime love interest; Seth Gabel (“Fringe”) as local aristocrat Cotton Mather, who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; Xander Berkeley (“Nikita,” “Being Human”) as chief politician Magistrate Hale; Tamzin Merchant (Jane Eyre) as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; Elise Eberle (The Astronaut Farmer) as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis; and Iddo Goldberg (“Mob City”) as outcast Isaac Walton.
