“The devastating horror of a nuclear apocalypse is now reality and nine desperate strangers find themselves clinging to life in a farmhouse cellar, while radioactive fallout descends on the darkened world above. These would-be survivors face the nightmare of dwindling supplies, poisonous air and the greatest threat of all – the hordes of zombie-like refugees who want in. With each dying day, their choice becomes clearer – stay and let the makeshift shelter become their tomb or face the unknown terrors of the world outside. Starring Edward Furlong, Monica Keena, Andre Royo and C.J. Thomason, AFTERMATH takes a hard look at how far humans will go to survive. And it isn’t pretty.”

After an ill-fated swim in contaminated water, they stumble upon a seemingly abandoned research facility where a deadly, flesh-eating virus has been unleashed. In the aftermath of a massacre, the only people left alive are a handful of secretive medical personnel and “Patient Zero” (Sean Astin), the lone person who’s been exposed to the disease and shows no symptoms. Can they find a way to survive and escape, or will the virus consume them all in a bloodbath of chaos and carnage?”

Their search leads them deep into rugged terrain rumored to hide the huge, man-like beast known as Sasquatch.

Acquired out of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, the indie film Preservation (review) will be opening on VOD platforms January 9, 2015.
Today we scored an exclusive clip that’s sure to piss off dog lovers – although it’s safe to say no dogs were actually hurt during the filming.
Actor Christopher Denham takes his second turn in the director’s chair with whats’s said to be a finely crafted horror-thriller starring Pablo Schreiber (“The Wire,” “Orange is the New Black”), Aaron Staton (“Mad Men”), and Wrenn Schmidt (“Boardwalk Empire”).

Bloody Disgusting has the exclusive art premiere for Anchor Bay Entertainment’s new horror thriller The Atticus Institute, from producer of The Conjuring Peter Safran, available on DVD and Blu-ray January 20st, 2015.
Written and directed by Chris Sparling (writer of “Buried”) in his directorial debut, The Atticus Institute stars Rya Khilstedt (“Dexter”), William Mapother (“Lost”, The Grudge), Harry Groener (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), John Rubenstein (“Angel”) and Sharon Maughn (The Bank Job) and was executive produced by Dan Clifton.
“Dr. Henry West founded The Atticus Institute in the early 1970s to test individuals expressing supernatural abilities – E.S.P., clairvoyance, psychokinesis, etc. Despite witnessing several noteworthy cases, nothing could have prepared Dr. West and his colleagues for Judith Winstead. She outperformed every subject they had ever studied – soon gaining the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense, who subsequently took control of the research facility. The more experiments they conducted on Judith, the clearer it became that her abilities were the manifestation of evil forces within her, prompting the government to take measures to weaponize this force. But they soon discovered there are powers that exist in this world that simply cannot be controlled. Now the details of the inexplicable events that occurred within The Atticus Institute are being made public after remaining classified for nearly forty years.”
Special features include “The Making of The Atticus Institute” and deleted scenes.
The P.T. demo Konami released to announce Silent Hills showcased some impressive visuals, thanks to its being powered by Kojima’s Fox Engine. Even still, there’s always room for improvement, and that may have been what YouTuber djo9999 tried to do with their recreation of the demo’s creepy, mind-bending apartment using Unreal Engine 4.
Whether or not they succeeded isn’t the point, the lesson we should all be taking from this game will look good no matter what’s powering it.

He is quickly welcomed into their lives, and begins helping out in unexpected ways that seem to change the family’s fortunes for the better.
A troubling and violent chain of events cause Anna (Monroe), the oldest daughter, to suspect David’s real intentions, and she begins to realise that his motives are more extreme than the family could ever imagine.

I’ve been obsessing over John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China as of late, especially since it’s now on Netflix Instant for compulsive streaming.
Thanks to Pop! Vinyl I can now bring my obsession home.
The toy company has created a series of dolls from the 1986 cult classic that allow you to bring the action of Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) to your home. Also included are Kim Cattrall’s Gracie Law character, as well as the various villains.
It’s been three long years since the release of Japanese alt-metal band Dir En Grey‘s eighth studio album, Dum Spiro Spero. Now, after a long wait, the longest in between their albums, the band has come back with Arche, which comes 17 years after their inception. It’s an album that fans, including myself, have been extremely excited for, especially after 2013′s EP, The Unraveling, which gave fresh flavor to old tracks.
In short, this album is pretty fantastic. It’s full of a wide variety of songs, from ballads (“Kukoku No Kyouon”, “Tousei”) to viciously heavy (“Uroko”, “The Inferno”). And even with such a dynamic album, one that takes the listener on a wild ride, each song is uniquely and distinctively Dir En Grey. After nearly two decades of music, the band has crafted such a specific sound, one that is attuned specifically to their style, and it’s exciting and thrilling to hear.
Each track offers fascinating usage of instruments and audio mixing, with guitars panning back and forth, the drums enveloping the listener. Truly, every member stands out, although I found myself particularly paying attention to bassist Toshiya and his flairs and embellishments.
For vocalist Kyo, it’s the eerily groovy “Phenomenon”, which sees the singer warbling and vibrating his voice in near inhuman manners. It’s possibly the most vocally diverse track and it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is quite possibly the most versatile vocalist in the music industry today. He’s banshee, a demon, an opera singer, an angel… He’s all of the above.
I previously made mention of “Uroko”, a track that made me realize that only Dir En Grey can make blast beats sound like they’re part of a Church sermon, all over a backdrop of crunchy, chunky guitars. “Sustain The Truth” meanwhile is a great example of the band’s complex songwriting at work.
The Final Word: At nearly 70 minutes of music, Arche might be a heavy pill to swallow for some. But to those who seek something different and thrilling, Dir En Grey have produced an album that you shouldn’t miss.
Those hoping to see Michael Keaton return to his Beetlejuice role can be both equally excited and disappointed.
Tim Burton and Keaton both talked “the Ghost with the most” this weekend, only they shared conflicting information.
Burton, out promoting Big Eyes, tells CS:
“It’s a character that I love and I miss and I miss actually working with Michael. There’s only one Betelgeuse. We’re working on a script and I think it’s probably closer than ever and I’d love to work with him again.”
And then, over at Deadline, Keaton says the opposite:
“Tim Burton and I have emailed about it. We’re both in the same situation (of always being busy on other projects). Neither one of us gets tired of the conversation… Tim says he’s working on something, then goes away for a while. At some point, someone is going to say we really want to do it. You don’t want to fuck it up, so it has to be perfect.”
The one constant is that both Burton and Keaton desire to team up for the Warner Bros. produced sequel that’s been penned by Seth Grahame Smith. The good news to come from this is that Burton would be more in the know than Keaton, who is waiting on Burton to announce as his next project. If Burton thinks they’re closer than ever, this means they truly are closer than ever.
As of a result of the Sony hack, the Ghosbusters news is never-ending.
Columbia Pictures allegedly considered suing Bill Murray into taking a role in the now defunct Ghostbusters 3.
Rebel Wilson has talked to new director Paul Feig about a role in the all-female Ghosbtusters.
Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Schumer and Lizzy Caplan are all alleged to be interested in joining the new quartet of ‘busters.
Lastly, Ryan Gosling is both interested and being courted, according to leaked information yesterday.
The latest, once again courtesy of The Daily Beast, has Jurassic Park and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt and 21 Jump Street‘s Channing Tatum teaming for what they call the Batman Begins of Ghostbusters. Oh, and it’s a spinoff to the new franchise…
While we won’t publish the e-mails here on the site, the duo want to turn in a film/franchise that’s both super scary and funny, which is exactly the tone that made the original work so well.
It was also suggested that this gets developed alongside Paul Feig’s all-female reboot, meaning a spinoff could be inevitable.
Thoughts on this bombshell?!
Years after its announcement, developer Robotoki has shed some light on the long in-development post-apocalyptic survival game, Human Element. This is the first time we’re seeing footage from the upcoming game, which follows what’s left of humanity 35 years after a zombie apocalypse. It sort of reminds me of Far Cry 4, but with zombies.
The open-world game will feature a campaign that can be played alone or with up to four people, character customization and a team-based competitive multiplayer in which two teams of five players are pitted against each other in a desperate fight for survival.
Human Element is slated to release next November for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Here’s the full image gallery for The Woman In Black 2: Angel of Death, the sequel to the hit 2012 haunted house film that starred Daniel Radcliffe.
The fright sequel, directed by Tom Harper and stars Jeremy Irvine and Helen McCrory, takes place in the same house 40 years later when a group of children who are evacuated from London during World War II come to stay and awaken the house’s darkest inhabitants.
It opens in theaters January 2, 2015.
“During the London bombings of World War II, school teachers Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) and Jean Hogg (Helen McCrory) lead a group of children in evacuation to Crythin Gifford, a remote village outside of the city. When the group takes up residence at the Eel Marsh House, 40 years after Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) investigated the first haunting, Eve soon realizes they are not alone. The longer they stay in the house, the more the awful past of the residence unravels itself and the evil spirit that lurks around them threatens the well-being of the children. With the help of a pilot (Jeremy Irvine), Eve does all that she can to protect the children and discover the truth behind the Woman in Black.”
The latest footage from the upcoming survival horror game Until Dawn treats us to a staple of the slasher genre: the chase scene. This video has everything a fan of the slasher genre could ever want. Baths are taken, innocents are hunted — there’s even a masked murderer who sounds eerily similar to Jigsaw from the Saw films. This looks like an extension of the footage that was shown off at The Game Awards earlier this month, only it’s a bit more cinematic.
Until Dawn releases exclusively for the PS4 in 2015.
Marilyn Manson has released a new track entitled “Deep Six”, which comes from his upcoming album The Pale Emperor (out January 20th). The track is available as an immediate download when you pre-order the album via iTunes.
I’m actually really digging on this track. The intro totally reminds me of something that Akira Yamaoka would pen for a Silent Hill entry. Overall, I’m finding myself really excited about this new album, which is new since I haven’t been excited for a Manson album since Holywood.
Listen to the track below and tell me what you think!
More gems continue to come out of the explosive Sony leaks, this time with mega news pulled from an email from one of many Sony executives.
According to the site, Fox is planning a Xmen and Fantastic Four crossover film.
Fox’s new The Fantastic Four is set for release on August 7, 2015, and will follow the “Ultimate Fantastic Four” story arc. Bryan Singer is once again directing the X-Men with Age of Apocalypse. There have been no connections between the universes, although it’s been said this would be the final X-Men film in the “new” trilogy. Maybe that’s where Fox will begin to create their own Avengers-style universe?
Part of the same story, it was revealed that Sony apparently has big plans of their own for Spider-Man, although they don’t appear to be able to see through their own fog. They want to re-reboot the franchise, while also giving Venom his own story, as well as the Sinister Six.
A lot has to go right for that to work, but the wheels are turning…
Either going to the movie theater or popping in one of my horror favorites at home, I’m all about having a snack to go with my movie watching experience.
