[TV Review] “The Strain”: Episode 1.09, ‘The Disappeared’

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 17:24

“The Disappeared” represents a lot of what’s wrong with The Strain’s first season. It’s a bothersome step to the left in terms of character, plot, and exposition. The moments of horror are genuinely terrifying but fail to elevate the episode past the point of mediocre.

The obvious issue in this episode is the heavy focus on Eph’s relationship with his son. The actor playing Zack is bothersome in his performance. I just really wish TV would stay away from child actors, since this is a constant reminder that one of the supposed strongest relationships in the show is so terrible.

Speaking of terrible why the hell would our group of heroes decide to slpit up this week after the hell they lived through last week. It defies all logic and pushes the show into a more make believe world where people don’t seem to react to the world around them.

Hell most of the dialogue is atrociously referencing exposition this week. With most characters dumbfounded and reacting to the chaos of the city around them like it’s something completely normal.

The flashbacks are the only saving grace of the week. They push to add even more to Abraham and Eichorst’s relationship and push the overall conflict of the series in an even more interesting direction. There were a couple reveals inside that added a great deal of complexity to the time in the concentration camp. And the scenes with The Master were terrifying. The immense stature of that creature makes any scene he’s in dominate you.

Everything with Vasily and the hacker girl felt forced bordering on unnecessary. I didn’t quite understand the motivation for having those scenes between them. Especially when the vampire came into her house and she just looked at him with wide eyes. Jesus woman, you just say legions of these things descend upon a gas station. It defies logic.

Which is the biggest problem with “The Disappeared.”  Everything defies logic. Nothing has consequence and everything just feels like it’s stalling to carry us into next week. Don’t even get me started on the sex scene between Nora and Eph. I thought it was profoundly useless and completely out of place. But I digress.

The show was hitting it’s stride only to take a maddening detour in what could be the worst episode of the series. Everything really chugged along this week and barely held my attention. I wanted new developments, I wanted more conflict, and I wanted that insane action from last week. Instead I waited forty minutes for the one scene between The Master and Eichorst.

Let’s hope next week is better.

Stray Thoughts:

-       The bread truck is a amazing set. I just love seeing Abraham take himself so seriously surrounding by loaves of bread.

-       Nora’s mother is the worst, and the feeble attempt at comedy with her as so groan inducing.

-       Are we really to believe anything that our characters did this week, Jesus Christ, these are supposed professionals and they’re acting worse than sexed up teen archetypes from 80’s slashers.

What did you think of “The Disappeared” ?

5 Questions With Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 17:00

When one thinks of legendary horror punk band The Misfits, it’s hard to think of their music without thinking of guitarist Doyle Von Frankenstein, the brooding, monstrous behemoth who wields a vicious spiked axe that emits forth demonic riffs.

Right now, Doyle is on the road touring in support of his solo album Abominator, which you can snag on iTunes.

I was fortunate enough to get a chance to talk with this legend and asked him five questions. They may be short, but his answers cut right to the point, leaving no room for misunderstanding.

Check out our exclusive interview below!

Bloody-Disgusting: Do you find anything terrifying in horror movies anymore?

No. Nothing. I’ve seen it all.

BD: What in horror still inspires you musically?

Movie soundtracks. I find that when I watch horror movies I pay attention more to the music and then I have to watch the fucking movie again to pay attenion to it.

BD: What’s been the biggest change in music that you’ve seen over the years?

People stealing music like a bunch of cocksuckers.

BD: What keeps you going?

I love music, man. That’s why.

BD: What’s next?

We’re gonna book some more shows. We’ve got another record in the can. We’ve got to do the drums because our drummer left us two hours before everybody was getting on the jet from fucking LA. We get word from the manager that he decided not to show, so we got Tiny [Biuso] and he came in on an hour’s notice, got on the plane, flew in, jet lagged, and learned four songs. Dropped him off at the studio the next day for 6-8 hours with myself, learned another four, went through a bunch of Misfits songs he happened to know, and we’re just killing it now!

Remaining Doyle tour dates:
9/8 – Spokane, WA @ The Hop
9/9 – Salt Lake City, UT @ Metro Bar
9/10 – Denver, OR @ The Roxy
9/11 – Kansas City, MO @ Riot Room
9/12 – Crest Hill, IL @ Bada Brew
9/14 – Newport, KY @ Thompson House
9/15 – Lakewood, OH @ The Foundry

‘Nightcrawler,’ Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Getting Huge Festival Buzz

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 16:56

A film we have not covered here on Bloody Disgusting is Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler, which stars Donnie Darko fav Jake Gyllenhaal as a self-made journalist in a very dark and violent social commentary on the “American Dream.”

The buzz out of the Toronto International Film Festival is that not only is the film right up Bloody Disgusting’s alley, but that Gyllenhaal could be in the running for an Oscar.

We caught wind of the hype and wanted to push it on over to you. Open Road is releasing in theaters October 31, so maybe it truly is the perfect movie for Halloween night?

“Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.

Xbox Head: ‘Alan Wake’ Sequel Needs to Come From Remedy

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 16:39

Ever since Remedy revealed their Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break last May, people can’t stop asking them about Alan Wake 2. While the game isn’t currently in development, Remedy has said in the past that they’re still very interested in returning to Alan Wake when it feels right, and possibly through a crowdfunding campaign.

When asked for an update on the sequel, Xbox head Phil Spencer said on Twitter that [Remedy] is pretty busy with [Quantum Break] right now. I think any future [Alan Wake] would have to be a Remedy game.”

I can’t imagine another developer taking the reigns on this series, even if it means we’ll have less of a wait for Alan Wake 2. As badly as many of us want to return to that charming blend of Twin Peaks and The Twilight Zone, I’m willing to wait for Remedy to get around to it.

Oh, and when our favorite writer returns, he better be joined by Mr. Scratch.

First Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort Teaser Attacks!

Dread Central - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 16:16

We live in a world in which there will soon be six Wrong Turn movies. Ponder that if you will. That's amazing since the only deformed killer who survived in the original was Three Finger. So is this another prequel? Looks like it. I think. Does it matter?

Helmed by Re-Kill's Valeri Milev, Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort arrives on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on October 21. Sadie Katz, Aqueela Zoll, Anthony Ilott, Chris Jarvis, Rollo Skinner, Billy Ashworth, Joe Gaminara, Harry Belcher, Raymond Steers, Luke Cousins, Tabitha Luke Eardley, and Roxanne Pallett star.

Check out the trailer below courtesy of Bloody Disgusting.

The unrelenting terror starts when an emotionally troubled young man, Danny, inherits an isolated backwoods hotel that may hold the key to his secret past. A trip to the peaceful resort quickly transforms into a blood-soaked killing spree as Danny’s friends are brutally murdered one by one.

Danny discovers that Three Finger and his flesh-eating kin are to blame, but the chilling surprises they have in store for him have only just begun. Danny ultimately learns that he has an unthinkable connection to the clan of hillbilly cannibals, but now that he knows the shocking truth, he will face an even more horrifying choice.

New Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Sneak Peek Explores Ichabod's Relationship with the Founding Fathers

Dread Central - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 16:14

Sleepyheads, rejoice! Season 2 of "Sleepy Hollow" kicks off in just two more weeks on Fox, and we have a new sneak peek that explores the relationships Ichabod had with some of the Founding Fathers.

"Sleepy Hollow" focuses on a resurrected Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), who’s pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to America’s founding fathers. Along for the wild ride is a modern-day cop, Lt. Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie).

Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, Lyndie Greenwood, and John Noble return along with Mison and Beharie, and joining the show this coming season are Timothy Busfield as Benjamin Franklin; Sakina Jaffrey as Sheriff Reyes, filling in for the incarcerated Frank Irving (Jones); Heather Lind as Mary Wells, Crane’s English ex straight out of the 18th century; Matt Barr as Nick Hawley, an arms dealer who gets drawn into Ichabod and Abbie's work; and Aunjanue Ellis as Abbie and Jenny's (Greenwood) mother, Lori Mills.

"Sleepy Hollow" Season 2 begins September 22nd and will be an expanded 18 episodes. You'll find the synopsis for Episode 2.01 below. If you're still not quite caught up on Season 1, the Blu-ray and DVD arrive on September 16th.

"Sleepy Hollow" Episode 2.01 - "This Is War" (airs 9/22/14)
Picking up immediately after the spellbinding events of the Season 1 finale, Ichabod finds himself buried alive in a coffin; Abbie is trapped in purgatory; Ichabod's wife, Katrina, has been kidnapped by the Headless Horseman; Capt. Frank Irving is behind bars for a murder he did not commit; and Abbie's sister, Jenny, is among the wreckage of an horrific car crash. These events were due, in large part, to the shocking revelation that Henry Parish, the trusted friend of Ichabod and Abbie, is actually Ichabod and Katrina's son and the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse. Now, with Henry's emergence as the Horseman of War alongside the Headless Horseman, Sleepy Hollow has never been so close to destruction.

More distribution news has come in for one of the films playing as part of the Vanguard Lineup at the Toronto International Film Festival. THR reports that following its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, Radius has picked up North American rights to the horror thriller Goodnight Mommy (Ich Seh Ich Seh).

Directed by Austrian filmmakers Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala, the creepy movie takes place in an isolated home and centers on a pair of twins whose mother returns home from the hospital. But with a bandaged-up face and off-kilter behavior, the twins begin to think that perhaps this isn’t their mother after all.

Real-life twins Elias Schwarz and Lukas Schwarz star. Radius plans a 2015 release.

10-year-old twins wait for their mother. When she returns with her head wrapped in bandages after surgery, nothing is as it was before. Stern and distant now, she shuts the family off from the outside world. Starting to doubt that this woman is actually their mother, the boys are determined to find the truth by any means.

The Ruination of Horror? A Look at the PG-13 Rating

Dread Central - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 14:55

Since the PG-13 rating's inception, it has been the source of much controversy. Is it the big monster in the closet most horror fans fear? Does it ruin our genre and other genres? Honestly, it depends on how it's used, and this video takes a look at that.

Blip.TV has just brought a great examination of the rating online. Probably the most comprehensive examination of this rating ever made. It's entitled WTF Happened to PG-13?, and you're bound to learn something and be a little enraged at the same time.

For our money a horror film doesn't have to be rated R to be good. Some of the most horrific films out there, including the original Texas Chain Saw Masscare, barely have a single bloody moment.

The Legend of Hell House, Jaws, Poltergeist... I can go on and on. You know when PG-13 fails? When the movie stops being about being a good movie and starts being about getting a particular rating. Filmmakers have a habit of letting the studios be so pushy that they end up gimping themselves. That's not totally their fault either because unless you're a Hollywood golden boy like Quentin Tarantino who can make his movies as violent and over-the-top as he wants, you're pretty much crucified by the ratings board for every little thing.

Look at Kill Bill and Hatchet. Kill Bill is human-on-human violence featuring swords, guns, and anything else laying around. Rated R. Hatchet is a goofy little throwback movie about a friggin' swamp ghost with a magic-powered belt sander that needed to be cut to shreds for an R rating. It doesn't make any sense. Hell... it never made any sense.
