[Review] ‘Heatstroke’ Needs More Stephen Dorff

bloody disgusting - Mon, 06/23/2014 - 10:30

Man, it’s weird to say that a movie is actually worse off without Stephen “We’re All Adults Here” Dorff. I don’t mean that as a jab at him, I think he’s a decent actor, but he’s not the type of guy who one typically thinks of as elevating a movie. In the new thriller Heatstroke, he comes off like a Shakespearean veteran compared to his co-stars. His character plays second fiddle to Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”) and Svetlana Metkina, two actresses who I’m sorry to say can’t carry a movie. The always great Peter Stormare is criminally underused as well – more of his menacing gait would have done wonders to strenghten this overall drab thriller.

Josie (Williams) is the petulant, estranged daughter of research scientist Paul (Dorff – Space Truckers). When she’s busted with some weed, her mother insists Paul take her along to Africa, where he studies hyenas. A little time in the desert might do this young girl some kid before she falls down a pit of drugs, booze, and hooking, I guess. His girlfriend Tally (Metkina) doesn’t get along very well with Josie, but that’s okay because what better way for a daughter to bond with her dad’s new girlfriend than by being chased by homicidal rhino poachers and hungry hyenas through an African veld?

Heatstroke is a slow build with the first act dealing essentially with the dynamic between Paul, Tally, and Josie. They’re trying to get her interested in hyenas and the stark beauty of the desert, but she’s more interested in her iPad. There’s some nice intimate moments between her and Paul, and I think Dorff is really damn good in these scenes. He’s got a fatherly warmth coming off him, though you can still tell he thinks his daughter is a peevish brat.

Once the action does kick in, the film see-saws between suspense and what basically amounts to down time where Josie and Tally look for water. The poachers, led by Stormare are always one step behind them. The time we spend with him and his crew is interesting enough, but they’re all one-dimensional villains and like I mentioned earlier, not enough Stormare. The ebb and flow of the suspense means that by the time the climax comes around, there’s nothing built up. So what could’ve been a tense moment is just a flaccid fizzle out.

One thing Heatstroke director Evelyn Purcell does a great job is portraying the desert as the harsh mistress (I assume) she is. During Josie’s first ride out to Paul’s camp, she looks out at the landscape and there’s just nothing. “There’s nothing for me here,” she tells her dad at one point. Even when they come across a watering hole, the water’s filled with bacteria, undrinkable. Then, of course, there’s the hyenas, who do a better job playing villains than the humans here.

Heatstroke will available on VOD, iTunes, and in-theaters July 4th.

San Diego Comic-Con 2014: Entertainment Earth Adds Some Color to Your Twilight Zone and Game of Thrones Collections

Dread Central - Mon, 06/23/2014 - 10:30

Entertainment Earth is starting to unveil the exclusives they'll be bringing to the 2014 SDCC, and first out of the gate is Bif Bang Pow!'s new line of six colored "Twilight Zone" 3-3/4-inch action figures.

In addition, we have a look at Artisan Designs' "Game of Thrones" Dragon Egg Prop Replica Set. After that finale with its Harryhausen-esque skeleton warriors, plus the previously revealed cannibals and White Walkers, we'd say there's plenty in "GoT" for the horror crowd, including this impressive set!

Just click any of the individual item links for more details, including pre-ordering info from EE.

Attending the show? Be sure to visit Entertainment Earth at San Diego Comic-Con, July 24-27. They'll be in Booth #2343, hosting celebrity signings, photo opportunities, convention exclusives, product debuts, and first-look prototypes.

"Twilight Zone" Gremlin 3-3/4-Inch Figure In Color - This authentically designed and rendered plastic action figure sports 5 points of articulation: neck, shoulders, and hips. In color and 3-3/4-inch scale, it offers The Gremlin, that horrifying creature from the memorable episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" that starred William Shatner.

"Twilight Zone" Bob Wilson 3-3/4-Inch Figure In Color - This authentically designed and rendered plastic action figure sports 5 points of articulation: neck, shoulders, and hips. In color and 3-3/4-inch scale, it offers Bob Wilson, the nervous airline passenger who sees that hideous creature on the wing in the memorable episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" that starred William Shatner. He brings a gun accessory, too!

"Twilight Zone" Kanamit 3-3/4-Inch Figure In Color - This authentically designed and rendered plastic action figure sports 4 points of articulation: neck, shoulders, and hip. In color and 3-3/4-inch scale, it stands about 4-1/2 inches tall and offers the Kanamit, a considerably covert character set on adding mankind to his menu of delectable dishes in the rather disturbing episode "To Serve Man" from 1962. He brings a cookbook accessory, too!

"Twilight Zone" Henry Bemis 3-3/4-Inch Figure In Color - This authentically designed and rendered plastic action figure sports 5 points of articulation: neck, shoulders, and hips. In color and 3-3/4-inch scale, it offers badgered book lover Henry Bemis, the nearsighted bank clerk from the memorable episode "Time Enough at Last" that starred Burgess Meredith. He brings two book accessories, too!

"Twilight Zone" Talky Tina 3-3/4-Inch Figure In Color - This authentically designed and rendered plastic action figure sports 5 points of articulation: neck, shoulders, and hips. In color and 3-3/4-inch scale, it stands about 2 inches tall and offers Talky Tina, star of "Living Doll," one of the most spine-chilling episodes ever aired, which also starred Telly Savalas. But don't worry; she's only a 2-inch tall action figure… or is she?

"Twilight Zone" Invader 3-3/4-Inch Figure In Color - This authentically designed and rendered plastic action figure sports 4 points of articulation: shoulders and hips. In color and 3-3/4-inch scale, it offers the Invader, one of those "tiny beings from the tiny place called Earth" in the memorable episode "The Invaders" that starred Agnes Moorhead. He brings and can hold two light stick accessories that glow in the dark, too!

"Game of Thrones" Dragon Egg Prop Replica - Set in a wooden box with gold Targaryen sigil and gold satin lining, this is a numbered limited edition of only 500 pieces. It features three (3) dragon egg prop replicas. They come in a collectible wooden box that's lined with gold satin, features a gold Targaryen sigil on top, and is engraved with the edition number on the bottom. A certificate of authenticity hand-signed by the artist is also included.

You may not be the Mother of Dragons, but you can be a serious collector with this exceptional Entertainment Earth exclusive. This unique set of three resin replicas of the dragon eggs used on the actual set includes Rhaegal, Viserion, and Drogon. The exquisitely detailed eggs fit nicely into their handcrafted, gold satin-lined wooden case and can be latched safely away. Put them on display, play with them, or keep them perfectly protected. Whichever option you choose, it's clear that you're the biggest "Game of Thrones" fan around!

Each egg measures 3 inches tall x 2-1/4 inches wide, while the wooden box measures 9-3/4 inches wide x 5 inches long x 4 inches tall. Together, they weigh over 2 pounds!

Be a Lucky Bastard and Win Lucky Bastard on DVD

Dread Central - Mon, 06/23/2014 - 10:00

The much talked about NC-17 flick Lucky Bastard is coming home to DVD on July 1st so you know what that means! Yep, it's time to win a copy on DVD from us! Read on for details.

To enter for your chance to win, just send us an email at contests@dreadcentral.com including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS. We’ll take care of the rest.

This contest will end at 12:01 AM PT on July 3rd.

Lucky Bastard stars Don McManus (Grand Piano, Lovelace), Jay Paulson ("Mad Men"), and Betsy Rue (My Bloody Valentine 3D).

See what happens when the adult film industry and “found footage” mix in the indie horror-thriller Lucky Bastard when it becomes available on DVD July 1st.

When the adult website "Lucky Bastard" runs a contest giving the winner a night with a famous porn star, the outcome turns from fantasy to horror in a deadly nightmare no one could possibly have expected.

Synopsis
LUCKY BASTARD is the story of a shy young man who wins a contest to have sex with a famous porn star on an adult website. When the young man arrives at the porno house/set location, his every move is captured on the numerous “reality television-style” wallcams that are spread out everywhere in the house. It is the found footage from these cameras that tells the story of the inevitable and horrifying reality of what actually happened.

At the center of the story are: Mike (Don McManus), who owns the “Lucky Bastard” website; his top porn star Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue); and Dave G. (Jay Paulson), the unsuspecting shy young man who wins the contest.

The “Lucky Bastard” employees treat their work matter-of-factly. Mike once clearly had more serious artistic ambitions, but now he runs the company and directs all of the “Lucky Bastard” website’s content. Ashley, the website’s most popular performer, initially refuses to participate because she knows the winner will be humiliated by the experience but ultimately gives in when offered extra money. And the contest winner, Dave, an unassuming and shy young man, finds himself driven by shame and humiliation into committing the most horrifying acts imaginable.

LUCKY BASTARD crosses many genres—drama, comedy, suspense thriller, horror—without entirely belonging to any of them and implicitly comments on a society in which pornography is not only a common part of modern life but also a mirror reflecting the nature of intimacy in today’s world. The movie also reshapes in unpredictable ways the recent cinematic convention of “found footage.”

If you’re a fan of black and white cinema mixed with a dash of modern flavor, then the upcoming The Phantom Of The Opera vinyl release from One Way Static Records must have you chomping at the bits and salivating an unhealthy amount (please, drink some water and rehydrate).

Dario Argento Hurt In Fall At His Home

bloody disgusting - Sun, 06/22/2014 - 18:14

Italian giallo/horror director extraordinaire Dario Argento was hurt when he fell at his home in Rome, Italy. He apparently fell down a flight of stairs, which resulted in injuries to his head, neck, back, ribs, and legs. He is currently at home under the care of a personal assistant. He is being ordered to rest until the end of July, which means that he has to cancel his appearance at the “Days Of The Dead” convention in Indianapolis.

Argento is the man behind such films as Suspiria, Deep Red, Inferno, and a great many others. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Steam Summer Sale Day 4: Thrills and Chills

bloody disgusting - Sun, 06/22/2014 - 15:16

Steam’s annual reaping of all our wallets continues into a new day, complete with new sales on video games we all want but probably can’t afford. Or, in my case, I can afford a couple new purchases, but I shouldn’t give into the temptation because my pile of shame (i.e. unfinished video games) has grown larger than ever lately.

Today’s highlights include Outlast for $4.99 (75% off) and Tomb Raider for $4.99 (75% off) — both great games that are most certainly worth your time.

Those are solid choices, but the real gems can be found in today’s community picked deals. Among them is Betrayer — the atmospheric open-world shooter from some of the folks who brought us F.E.A.R. — for $3.99 (80% off), Lone Survivor for $3.74 (75% off), Metro: Last Light for $6.79 (66% off), and Slender: The Arrival for $2.49 (75% off). As of the time of this writing, these deals will remain active for the next eight hours.

If you like, let me know what games you’ve purchased so far. Day 2 and Day 3 were pretty exciting, I’m sure a few of you have given in to the numerous horror (or non-horror, because those exist too) deals each day offered.

Me? Thanks for asking — so far I’ve grabbed Battleblock Theater, Hammerwatch, and I most recently gave in to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, because it saw a substantial price cut today. I’d love to stay and chat, but I have some games to play and more to ignore.

What Do You Want The Next Horror Trend To Be?

bloody disgusting - Sun, 06/22/2014 - 15:00

Remember when Scream came out and suddenly there were a ton of self-referential slashers? Or how about when Paranormal Activity came out and we were suddenly inundated with all the found footage films imaginable? Or what about when we were getting seemingly nothing but J-horror remakes?

Horror follows popular trends, just like the rest of Hollywood. When something is popular we get slammed with nothing but that until they start performing poorly OR there are simply no ways to make it even remotely unique or interesting anymore.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t hope for a specific trend to make a comeback or even a brand new one to emerge! And if you had the decision, if you had the power, what would you want that trend to be?

Well, I’ve come up with a few trends that I’d like to see come back that I want to share below. Check ‘em out and then let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Serious horror that isn’t sadistic

Examples: The Shining and Session 9

Look, we don’t always need horror to be gory, violent, and depressingly bleak or hopeless, right? The struggle for survival is often the best part of a horror film! It gives a feeling of hope, a light at the end of the tunnel that we desperately hope the main characters will reach. By actually having an opportunity to empathize, we, the viewer, get to be a part of the story rather than just a voyeur.

Enough of films like Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Hostel, the Saw franchise (after the first one, of course). Bring on films that ditch the gore and actually make me terrified of what’s coming next.

The Frightening Truth About Steven Seagal's Career

Dread Central - Sat, 06/21/2014 - 22:28

Steven Seagal has made only one horror movie to date, and that was 2009's Against the Dark, in which he had a cameo that found him beating off vampires. Yet, here at Dread Central we've been known to cover the world of the bizarre and the paranormal. You're about to learn something about Seagal that is beyond bizarre...

Did you ever notice the strangest thing about Seagal movie titles is that they tell a story in order of their release? No? Check IMDb if you don't believe. Sit back, dear reader, and allow me to take you on a strange trip filled with action, madmen, and revenge.

Steven Seagal was ABOVE THE LAW, but he was too HARD TO KILL so now he's been MARKED FOR DEATH by Jamaicans who are OUT FOR JUSTICE. Can he live while UNDER SIEGE and ON DEADLY GROUND? Could you survive while UNDER SIEGE 2? It was time for him to make an EXECUTIVE DECISION about THE GLIMMER MAN. There's a FIRE DOWN BELOW and only Seagal, THE PATRIOT that he is, can heal the EXIT WOUNDS left in his TICKER. Despite being HALF PAST DEAD, THE FOREIGNER who was OUT FOR A KILL emerged from the BELLY OF THE BEAST.

His name was CLEMENTINE.

Safety was OUT OF REACH for Seagal, but still... he walked INTO THE SUN until he was SUBMERGED into the Pacific Ocean by a threat unknown. "TODAY YOU DIE," yelled Clementine as the BLACK DAWN rose. But Steven is a MERCENARY FOR JUSTICE, a SHADOW MAN, an ATTACK FORCE all his own! His FLIGHT OF FURY would unleash some cold hard URBAN JUSTICE as he PISTOL WHIPPED the man whose true motivation was to stop the filming of THE ONION MOVIE. Seagal hit the KILL SWITCH and found himself AGAINST THE DARK.

DRIVEN TO KILL by a need to administer justice, Seagal headed out to take care of a new half-robotic enemy known as THE KEEPER, A DANGEROUS MAN with a MACHETE, who was BORN TO RAISE HELL. It was time for this clown to experience the SHEEP IMPACT of Seagal's "TRUE JUSTICE." It was with MAXIMUM CONVICTION and an unbelievable FORCE OF EXECUTION that Seagal disposed of his CYBORG NEMESIS.

A GOOD MAN until the very end, thanks to his ability to get his GUTSHOT STRAIGHT, Seagal has finally found ABSOLUTION.

"Intruders" stars celebrated British actor John Simm ("Life on Mars," "State of Play," and "Doctor Who") and Oscar winner Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite, Norma Jean & Marilyn, Human Trafficking) with James Frain ("The White Queen," "Grimm," "True Blood") and Tory Kittles ("True Detective") and introducing Millie Brown ("Once Upon a Time in Wonderland"), making her debut in a series lead role.

Synopsis:
"Intruders" is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others.

A contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest, "Intruders" spins a fascinating and complex web of drama. As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple storylines - a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run - begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature.

John Simm stars as Jack Whelan, a Los Angeles cop turned writer who has escaped a dark, violent past for a seemingly quiet life with his wife, Amy. When Amy goes missing, Jack is plunged into an investigation that forces him to confront the sins of his past and reexamine the very foundations he’s built his life upon.
