Earlier this year, the highly praised soundtrack to the cult classic anime Akira got a vinyl reissue. Now a 2xLP copy has just been announced and is available to pre-order through Bleep. The title begins shipping tomorrow and it’s unknown if this is a limited release or not. The soundtrack was composed by Yamashiro Shoji and performed by Geinoh Yamashirogumi.

It should be noted that there is talk that this release is unofficial and could pretty much be called a “bootleg”. However, nothing has been 100% confirmed either way, so keep that in mind if you’re a purist or you simply don’t care!

5 Skull Review: “Sex Criminals” #6

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/19/2014 - 16:18

Well the honeymoon is over for Suzie and Jon as “Sex Criminals” #6 starts the second arc.  This issue switches perspective from Suzie to Jon as he describes the events that transpired over the months since their narrow escape from the sex police.  Jon is not in a good place and Fraction tackles mental illness with the same care and honesty that this title has come to be known for.  Though it may be far from the sexually charged whimsy of the first volume, this series is as engaging and emotionally powerful as it has ever been.

WRITTEN BY: Matt Fraction
ART BY: Chip Zdarsky
PUBLISHER: Image
PRICE: $3.50
RELEASE: June 18, 2014

Reviewed by Epic Switzer

This issue crams a ton of heartache into 20 pages.  Despite how much the tone has changed, what I have always loved most about this book remains intact:  As honestly as Fraction and Zdarsky depicted sexuality and falling in love, they too have represented the reality of anxiety disorders, mental health management, and the loneliness associated with a relationship having run its course.  This issue hit close to home for me.  As personally as I feel connected to this book, any reader would find these characters and situations relatable.  Great fiction puts believable characters in unbelievable situations, and Sex Criminals does that exactly.

A great deal of the honesty comes from Zdarsky’s beautiful art.  Jon’s anguish is all over his face; you can read the distress and building tension from scene to scene. Likewise Susie’ s visible worry over the current state of their relationship will break your heart.  There is also a particularly clever use of color as a narrative tool that plays a big part in this issue.   Personally I think some non-traditional panelling might benefit this book, but I’m not complaining.  If its not broke, don’t fix it.

As a title known for being controversial, Fraction’s depiction of pharmacology may just be the most controversial thing about it.  Mental illness, and especially untreated mental illness, seems to be more prevalent than ever, and the dichotomy between medicated and unmedicated Jon is poignant and a major component in the mental illness debate.  Unmedicated, Jon is manic, paranoid, unable to focus and struggling with unmanageable stress.  When he decides to go back on his pills, Jon is hollow, a shell of his former self.  He takes no joy in anything and feels as though he is simply running on autopilot.  Without highs and lows, everything is just neutral.  This is a common issue in the mental health community, relatable to many people, and a succinct depiction of life with “brain stuff” as Jon calls it.

This issue is a real punch in the gut.  Gone are the dildo pumpkins and Willem Dafoe sex masks, and instead here is a truly gripping story about two people in love who can’t figure out how to live healthy lives and love each other at the same time.  I never expected to describe Sex Criminals as a tragedy, but this book left me with the same lump in my abdomen that Jon has.  Hopefully its not CancerAIDS.

I don’t have to tell you, you already know how great this book is.  If somehow you don’t: buy the first trade, jump in with #6, what are you doing?  Buy it already, Stupid.

    You hear that? That’s the sound of every geek’s wallet crying. It’s a horrifying sound, I heard Akira Yamaoka used it in his work on the Silent Hill soundtracks. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as we all had adequate time to prepare, though I’m sure no amount of time could adequately prepare our bank accounts for the horrors Valve has in store for us this year.

    The horror that is an inordinate amount of crazy cheap games.

    ‘The X-Files’ Movie Holds Up 16 Years Later

    bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/19/2014 - 15:00

    It’s been 16 years since FOX released The X-Files: Fight the Future, the spinoff feature film of their popular “The X-Files” television series.

    Even though I enjoyed it when I was younger, the 1998 film, directed by Rob Bowman, holds up incredibly well. It’s a freaky slow burn doomsday tale that fit perfectly as a release leading up to Y2K. I say you guys should celebrate the film’s 16th anniversary by watching it this weekend – and hitting Netflix for the series’ tie-in episodes.

    The movie and show’s arc followed Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) fighting the government in a conspiracy to find the truth about an alien colonization of Earth.

    The film was a success garnering $83M here in the States for a worldwide total of $189.

    New Demolisher Images Do Damage; Soundtrack Sample Now Available

    Dread Central - Thu, 06/19/2014 - 14:41

    We first told you about the "hyper-violent" new film from Latefox Pictures entitled The Demolisher back in February, and today we have over a dozen images and even a sample of the film's soundtrack for ya! Dig it!

    Check out the goods below via Bloody Disgusting and Fangoria.

    The Demolisher is both a character study and a psychological examination of trauma, resulting in an unapologetic portrayal of what can happen when a fragile mind is pushed too far.

    “The film is complex and character-driven, dealing with an outpouring of raw emotion,” said director Gabriel Carrer, also one of the film’s producers. “It delicately juggles our sympathetic nature and reactions to chance encounters with the dangerous and addicted intoxication of violence. The film’s narrative pertains to the film industry, or any industry for that matter, and the level of abuse that can be endured,” he concludes.

    Award-winning cinematographer Martin Buzora captures the film’s fresh hyper-visual aesthetic. Along with Carrer, The Demolisher is produced by Barrett, AK Lamm, Duane Frey, Christian Burgess, Martin Buzora, Nathan Hawkins, and Andrew Wood.

    Synopsis:
    Directed by Gabriel Carrer (In the House of Flies), The Demolisher chronicles the story of a man named Bruce (Ry Barrett; The Drownsman), an ordinary repairman tormented by a crippling sense of responsibility for his disabled wife, Samantha (Tianna Nori; Clean Break), a former policewoman and survivor of a gang-related assault. Bruce’s increasing hyper-sensitivity to the injustice suffered by his wife steers him down a dark path of vigilantism. With his rapidly disintegrating mental health, paranoia, and overwhelming sense of condemnation, Bruce channels his inner rage, punishing a young woman, Marie (Jessica Vano; The Unabomber Manifesto), and finding refuge in a world of intense violence.

    For further information, visit the official The Demolisher Facebook page, which will be regularly updated to include sneak previews from the upcoming soundtrack, produced worldwide by talented and upcoming electronic music producers and remixers.

    Hilarious Claymation Trailer Imagines Quentin Tarantino's Ghostbusters 3

    Dread Central - Thu, 06/19/2014 - 14:13

    Much ado has been made about who will be directing the long-gestating next installment in the beloved Ghostbusters film franchise, leaving many fans to imagine what the movie would be like if their favorite filmmaker was at the helm.

    One of those fans is Lee Hardcastle, who made a name for himself with the ABCs of Death short film "T is for Toilet." A master of the art of claymation, Hardcastle just put together a hilarious little short that imagines a world wherein Quentin Tarantino is hired to direct Ghostbusters 3.

    It essentially places the iconic characters into situations ripped straight out of films like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill.

    As you might imagine, the results are absolutely hilarious, and the claymation trailer is needless to say quite the treat for those who appreciate both Ghostbusters and the uber-violent brand of cinema that Tarantino specializes in. Can't say I ever thought I'd see those two worlds mashed together, but I feel like my life is just a tad bit better now that I have.

    Check out Quentin Tarantino's Ghostbusters: Volume 3 below, and see more of Hardcastle's brilliant claymation over on his YouTube channel!

    Herschell Gordon Lewis Returns with Anthology BloodMania

    Dread Central - Thu, 06/19/2014 - 13:46

    It's been over 50 years since Herschell Gordon Lewis pioneered the art of the splatter film, and it makes us happy to see he's still doing his thing all these years later. At the ripe old age of 85, the "Godfather of Gore" is readying principal photography on an anthology called BloodMania.

    Read on, splatter fiends!

    From the Press Release
    BloodMania is a new anthology film with four distinctively different horror tales, each featuring Herschell Gordon Lewis' brand of splatter. Principal photography begins late July 2014 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Mr. Lewis has written one segment and will direct two of them.

    Herschell Gordon Lewis, originator of the “splatter” film genre, both revered and reviled as the “Godfather of Gore,” has expressed strong enthusiasm for BloodMania. “It’s time to get some fresh blood flowing into the happy universe of horror films,” Herschell said. “I’ll be there to be sure it happens, and I can promise that we’ll have enough bloody messes and enough off-the-wall humor to satisfy everyone... even including me.”

    Few categories of motion pictures enjoy the perpetual popularity of the genre Herschell Gordon Lewis literally invented half a century ago. The original gore movie, Blood Feast (1963), was as primitive as any movie could be. Yet, it shows in theaters to this day and is a DVD favorite. Herschell’s personal favorite, Two Thousand Maniacs (1964), has a plot line centering on a small U.S. Southern town that “gets even” for that country’s Civil War. Despite what one might or would think is a plot of local interest only, the film has long been an international success, and wherever the director travels – in Canada, the U.S., Europe, or the Far East – he is called on to sing the theme of that movie, which he wrote.

    BloodMania, Herschell promises, carries the slasher advantage to a new height. “First of all,” he points out, “we've brought young directors into the slasher arena and given them tools and effects that just didn't exist when we originated the category. BloodMania has four dynamic episodes. I’m directing two of them. The other two are... well, critics will have a difficult time choosing which of those episodes is the most effective because we’re opening wide the gates of effects nobody has seen before.”

    James Saito, the Diabolique Films executive of the BloodMania team, who has assumed the challenging job of recruiting major talent, has chosen some well known genre experts for the project. One example is award-winning screenwriter/producer Bob Schultz, whose last two horror films, Mr. Saito points out, have been screened around the world on every continent except Antarctica. Mr. Schultz is writing one of the episodes Mr. Lewis will direct. Each of the other directors will create his or her own episode, and Jim Saito promises a competitive atmosphere that will result in “scenes that blast off the screen.” The promise made by both Herschell Gordon Lewis and James Saito: "BloodMania will set a level of entertainment, shock, and wild humor that will be the benchmark for years to come."

    Jim says, "I saw my first Herschell Gordon Lewis movie at a drive-in theater in 1971. It changed the way I looked at horror cinema and was instrumental in shaping me into the gore-hound that I am today. The fact Mr. Lewis has specifically chosen Diabolique Films as the vehicle for a long-awaited new venture is not only thrilling, but a particular honor. Satisfying his legion of fans and introducing his brand of cinema to a new younger audience is a responsibility that we all take very seriously indeed!"
