What Would You Like to See from ‘Doom 4′?

bloody disgusting - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 16:38

Our patience finally paid off last week with the long-awaited reveal of Doom 4. The game was teased through a creepy CG trailer, sans any gameplay footage, but I’m sure that decision was made so we’d all tune into its full reveal at QuakeCon next month. AAA horror has lost much of its appeal lately, as a few of our favorite horror franchises — Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Dead Space — have all managed to disappoint with their latest installments.

So with that in mind, what would you like to see from Doom 4? What would make you excited to play it? Let’s chat about it in the comments below.

The Dead 2 Shambles Home to Blu-ray and DVD

Dread Central - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 16:06

The Ford Brothers' eagerly awaited sequel to their film The Dead, entitled The Dead 2 (aka The Dead 2: India), is on its way to Blu-ray and DVD courtesy of Anchor Bay, and we have the artwork and details for ya cold and clammy!

From the Press Release
Two years ago filmmakers Howard J. Ford and Jon Ford took international audiences on an unforgettable journey through a zombie-infected African veldt with the critically acclaimed and audience favorite The Dead.

Setting a new standard for the zombie film, the Ford Brothers have now raised the survival stakes to new dramatic heights with the September 16th Blu-ray and DVD release of The Dead 2.

As demonstrated with screenings at numerous international film festivals, audiences around the world have once again thrilled to the Ford Brothers’ unique vision of the zombie apocalypse, taking it to yet another epic level. And just as with the first film, reviewers are bestowing glowing praise on the filmmakers’ ability to transform an exotic environment into a vital character within the character-driven narrative. The first international zombie film production to be shot in India, The Dead 2 utilizes the spectacular vistas of Rajasthan, Delhi, and Mumbai to create yet another unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness baked in sunlight. SRP for the Blu-ray is $29.99 and $24.98 for the DVD.

A ship docks fresh from Somalia, which contains one infected worker that passes unnoticed into the very heart of India’s overpopulated bustling streets, setting off an unstoppable chain of events. Meanwhile, American turbine engineer Nicholas Burton (Joseph Millson, Casino Royale) is working in the stark yet tranquil Indian countryside when he receives a call from his love, Ishani (Meenu), a local girl who lives on the outskirts of the slums of Mumbai and who has hidden their relationship from her tradition-minded father. She reveals she is now pregnant and scared for her life as chaos and terror have taken ahold of the cities as the dead return to life and attack the living. Nicholas has to battle his way across their 300-mile landscape filled with flesh-eating – and infectious – undead. With the help of young street kid Javed (Anand Goyal), he has to rely on his wits and sheer brute force to try and save them all, as the clock ticks off the minutes before the last flight out of a living hell...

Bonus features on The Dead 2 Blu-ray and DVD include "The Making of The Dead 2" and deleted scenes.

Unfolding across an epic vista of breathtaking scope, thrilling action, death-defying stunts, and spine-chilling fright, yet always keeping the emotional resonance in focus, The Ford Brothers’ The Dead 2 once again melds the terror of the end of the world with the inspiration of the human drive to survive.

    Only Lovers Left Alive Dated for Home Video

    Dread Central - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 15:23

    If you're anything like me, you've been wondering when you're going to be able to see Jim Jarmusch's vampire flick Only Lovers Left Alive (review), which has to date only been given a limited theatrical release. That all changes this August, when the bloodsuckers come home. Read on for release details!

    From the Press Release
    Sony Pictures Classics’ visually poetic love story from director Jim Jarmusch (Broken Flowers), ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, will debut on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD August 19 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

    The film is the apotheosis of American independent film and underground music, full of Jarmusch’s laconic sense of humor. ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE stars Oscar winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, 2008, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role) and Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) alongside co-stars Mia Wasikowska (Lawless), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), and John Hurt (Harry Potter).

    Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, this critically well received fan favorite puts an original spin on a well-worn genre – these vampires are mature, highbrow, and charmingly ultra-cool. ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE was selected for official competition at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and enjoyed critical acclaim at various film festivals worldwide, including the Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, and New York Film Festival. It was also chosen as an official selection at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

    Special features on the film’s Blu-ray and DVD release include never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes as well as an extended version of Yasmine Hamdan performing "Hal." Also included is the “Traveling at Night with Jim Jarmusch” documentary, taking fans behind the scenes for a portrait of the director at work on his latest film.

    Synopsis:
    Only Lovers Left Alive is the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Hiddleston) and Eve (Swinton). Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature, and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance but still retain their innate wildness. Their love story has endured several centuries, but their debauched idyll is threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree little sister, Ava (Wasikowska), who hasn’t yet learned to tame her wilder instincts. Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science, and the mysteries of everlasting love.

    Special Features

  • "Traveling at Night with Jim Jarmusch" -- A portrait of director Jim Jarmusch at work on the set of his latest film, Only Lovers Left Alive
  • Deleted and Extended Scenes
  • Yasmine Hamdan "Hal" Music Video – An extended version of Yasmine Hamdan performing "Hal"

    Adult Film Star Channon Rose Gets Possessed on Camera in This Isn't a Movie

    Dread Central - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 15:01

    Adult film star Channon Rose has dealt with lots of sticky substances over her career, but we don't think ectoplasm was on her agenda. In any event, Ms. Rose apparently suffered a bout of possession that was caught on film!

    From the Press Release
    Linda Blair’s head-rotating, pea soup-vomiting portrayal of demonic possession is the stuff of movie legend, but the events that form the basis of The Exorcist and the book of the same name were actually inspired by a month-long demon-purging over a young boy in 1949.

    Whether you believe in possessions—demon or otherwise—or not, they have been around since ancient times, and so has our fascination with them and the exorcisms that cast these demons, imagined or real, back into the darkness they came from.

    Imagine a movie with all of the ingredients that has made Paranormal Activity a five-time box office success, that spooky “home footage” allure of witnessing a possession unfold, only far more frightening because This Isn’t A Movie is the real deal. It is the unplanned, unscripted, raw footage of a real life possession, exactly as it occurred.

    Channon Rose and Travis Dean aren’t filmmakers or seeking fame via a pseudo reality show. Channon is a beautiful print model with her own beauty blog; Travis comes from the corporate world with an 8-5 job. Since the beginning of their relationship in 2012, they’ve been capturing their good times and getaways on Channon’s handheld camera, and their trip to Big Bear started out like all the rest: fun, silly, and lighthearted. But something unexplained happened to Channon, unleashing a nightmarish experience and a home movie they’ll never forget.

    The question most people will ask is: How do we know it’s real? According to Channon, “It’s pretty obvious from the minute you start watching that this is something real. The whole experience was pretty terrifyingm and the only way to describe it is a possession of some kind.”

    Travis adds, “Imagine seeing someone you know and love acting so strange and eerie with no explanation or ability to help them. Seeing Channon literally banging her head against the wall of our cabin hard enough to really hurt herself; she kept answering the front door of our secluded cabin, and of course, nobody was ever there. What freaked me out the most was when she completely disappeared and I ended up finding her in the woods with no idea of how she ended up there. That’s when I drove her to the emergency room.”

    This Isn’t A Movie invites viewers to explore what an actual possession is—what it looks like up-close, unedited, and without Hollywood’s special effects. It is a scary journey because it is real. There are no actors going home at the end of the day... just a couple who never imagined this could happen to them.

    Happy 25th Anniversary ‘Ghostbusters II’!

    bloody disgusting - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 14:47

    25 years ago today I sat alone in an empty theater – as a nine-year-old boy – watching Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters II.

    Thus, we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the sequel to the smash-hit horror comedy that starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver.

    In it, the discovery of a massive river of ectoplasm and a resurgence of spectral activity allows the staff of Ghostbusters to revive the business.

    The sequel, which critics weren’t fond of, was still a success taking in $215M worldwide at the box office. A third film should have happened by now, yet we sit here waiting like a bunch of jackasses. I have my proton pack on and ready to go. Sony, what’s up?!

    In ‘Monstrum’, No Hiding Spot is Good Enough

    bloody disgusting - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 14:44

    Indie developer Team Junkfish is currently working on their first foray into the horror genre with Monstrum, a procedurally generated horror game where you’re chased all over a creepy, derelict ship by what resembles the fiery offspring of a Big Daddy and William Birkin.

    Much like in Outlast and Slender, you’re completely unarmed, so the only option when ole Jack-o-Lantern Face is near is to run, hide, and desperately hope he doesn’t use his freakishly huge arm to drag you kicking and screaming from your chosen hiding spot.

    I recently had the opportunity to dive into the Monstrum alpha, watch me spend some time with it below.

    A Very ‘Batman’-esque Poster For ‘Dracula Untold’

    bloody disgusting - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 14:20

    Every bloodline has a beginning…

    Universal Pictures just sent us a second one-sheet from Dracula Untold (formerly Dracula: Year Zero), the Gary Shore-directed version of Bram Stoker’s novella, in theaters October 17, 2013.

    Starring Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Zach McGowan, Samantha Barks, Thor Kristjansson and Art Parkinson, the film was shot in Belfast last year.

    In the film, “Luke Evans is starring as the most famous of vampires in an origin story that sees a Transylvanian prince risk eternal damnation in order to save his wife and son from a Turkish horde. Barks will play a figure in Eastern European folk tales known as a baba yaga, a beautiful young woman who turns into a savage witch. Kristjansson will play Bright Eyes, an Eastern European taken as a slave as a young boy and now a vicious assassin in the Ottoman Army. Parkinson will play Dracula’s son, named Ingeras.

    The new poster reminds me of the work done for Warner Bros. Batman trilogy, although it works well for this as Dracula, too, is associated with bats.

    If you guys didn’t know, it’s about time for a vacation! Not sure where to go? Not sure if you prefer the woods or the beach? Not sure if you want to stay in the country or leave the country? No problem! I’m here to help you. The list below reveals the 15 Worst Horror Destinations. With this, you are guaranteed to think twice about your vacation plans, and it may even encourage you to stay home where things are normal and a little less life-threatening.

    15. NILBOG – TROLL 2 (1990)

    Why vacation in a small town secretly inhabited by Goblins that want to eat you?

    14. NEW ORLEANS SWAMP – HATCHET (2006)

    I’m not saying you can’t go to New Orleans…just stay away from the swamps. Particularly, stay away from the haunted swamp tours.

    13. CABIN IN THE WOODS…duh – CABIN IN THE WOODS (2012)

    I’m sure you don’t want to discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods…so just avoid all cabins, period.

    12. SLOVAKIA – HOSTEL (2005)

    It’s ok to meet new people along the way. These encounters may lead to new things and perhaps new friendships. However, if you don’t want to wake up in a dungeon room with a man who drills holes into your chest or legs… bypass these new friendships. I’m not a fan of rap, but Drake said it himself, “No new friends.”

    11. WOODSBORO, CALIFORNIA – SCREAM (1996)

    Just because you know the rules of horror doesn’t mean you should go here. Plus, if you really know the rules, then you would know that the rules are always getting switched up!

    10. CAMP ARAWAK – SLEEPAWAY CAMP (1983)

    This one particularly goes to those parents who want to get rid of the children for the summer, even if it means sending them to camp where a psycho with sinister intentions is on the loose. We all know how this one ends. Young women end up having male genitalia or worse, raped by a hot curling iron. Either way, stay away, and certainly don’t send your children there.

    9. WEST VIRGINIA – WRONG TURN (2003)

    If you get cheated on by your significant other and your friends know, just make sure they don’t suggest you all go to the woods in West Virginia. Why not just take your friend to a bar or club to drink or dance their troubles away?

    8. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE – FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980)

    Unless you want to be stalked and murdered, I say skip it.

    7. RACCOON CITY – RESIDENT EVIL (2002)

    Don’t even think about visiting a city with a company named ‘Umbrella’ in it or around it… unless you simply like battling flesh-eating creatures, creatures that crawl on the ceilings, or worst, an out of control supercomputer with a little British girl’s voice.

    6. COASTAL TOWN OF ANTONIO BAY – THE FOG (1980)

    Yeah, finishing towns that were built a 100 years ago seems pretty awesome. But what happens when a killer fog emerges, containing dead zombie spirits that seek revenge for their deaths?

    5. TEXAS – TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974)

    Yes, THE whole state! You never know when someone with a chain-saw will jump out, gut you like a pig, then eat you like one. Play it safe and avoid the whole state!

    4. AN OLD REMOTE CABIN – EVIL DEAD (2013)

    Again with a cabin in the woods! If you want to help your sister or friend recover from their heroin addiction or worse, musical addiction, don’t do it in a remote cabin in the woods. Have we not learned that there are evil forces out there?

    3. BATES MOTEL – PSYCHO (1960)

    You’d be better sleeping in your car at the side of the road than sleeping in a motel where the least of your worries would be the cockroaches.

    2. OVERLOOK HOTEL – THE SHINING (1980)

    An isolated hotel where evil spirits influence people to do violent things is definitely one to avoid!

    1. ISLAND OF MATOOL – ZOMBI 2 (1979)

    A tropical island always seems nice, huh? Wrong! Especially when there is an epidemic of the undead.

    HONORABLE MENTIONS

    LONDON – AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (1981)

    If something bad happens to you out there, I’m sure none of the locals will believe you. Especially if it involves hairy, bloody werewolves.

    BURKITTSVILLE, MARYLAND – THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT (1999)

    Avoid locations that have legends. Simple.

    HADDONFIELD, ILLINOIS – HALLOWEEN (1978)

    Well…maybe you’ll be ok because we aren’t near Halloween or in the month of October…maybe.

    BRAZIL – TURISTAS (2006)

    Brazil is known for its beauty, especially the beautiful women. If you must go, don’t take drinks from an attractive individual.

    AUSTRALIA – WOLF CREEK (2005)

    It’s actually a dream of mine to go to Australia ,but after seeing this film, I knew my dream to not be brutally murdered outweighed visiting Australia.

    You’re probably wondering, what place is left to vacation? Nowhere! So, you might as well stay home and watch horror movies all summer. You’re welcome!
