Tom Savini Isn't Directing 'Friday the 13th'

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 19:10

Allegedly, special effects legend Tom Savini was at the Mad Monster Party in North Carolina this weekend telling fans that he’s “being courted” to direct the next Friday the 13th.

Instead of rushing to post false news for the traffic bump, we did the work, checked with our sources, and were able to learn that this is completely untrue.

What we did find out, however, is that Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes are currently in discussions for a director to bring the Voorhees family back from the grave.

Watch for news on that soon here on Bloody Disgusting.

According To This Infographic, A Zombie Apocalypse Will Make A LOT Of People Happy

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 18:55

The zombie apocalypse is coming. You know it, I know it. Movies and television are preparing us mentally, while video games are giving us the skills to survive it. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re undoubtedly already fully aware of how popular the zombie genre has become across all forms of media. Most of the time, a zombie apocalypse scenario is presented as a horrible thing — people are eaten alive, it’s every man, woman, and child for his or herself, and when there are no laws or rules, humans become the real threat.

All that didn’t stop a massive percentage (33.56%, to be exact) of 800,000 people polled from saying they’d be more than cool with a zombie apocalypse — they’d be happy. See the full results in snazzy infographic form after the break.

[TV] "Penny Dreadful" Teaser Stitched Together

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 17:14

After sharing actual show footage, I’m confused as to why Showtime is reverting back to promoting “Penny Dreadful” with teasers? Still, it’s cool to see this one get stitched together.

Premiering May 11, the show is said to feature some of literature’s most frightening and iconic figures as they grapple with alienation in Victorian London.

Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star. Dalton will be playing African explorer “Sir Malcolm,” while Carney has snapped up Dorian Gray. Hartnett will play the role of “Ethan Chandler,” a charming American who finds himself trapped in the darkest corners of Victorian London. Green will play “Vanessa Ives,” a seductive and formidable beauty full of secrets and danger. Treadaway will be assembled as “Victor Frankenstein.”

Oscar-nominee Logan created and wrote the series with the first two episodes to be helmed by The Orphanage and The Impossible director Juan Antonio Bayona.

Dive Further Into 'Hannibal' With Halia Meguid's "The Ravenstag"

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 11:00

If you’re not watching NBC’s Hannibal, then you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s probably the most visceral, intense, and shocking show on network TV right now (and possibly ever). It’s beautifully shot and features some stellar acting, along with some truly haunting music. In short, I love it. I can’t get enough of it. I just really hope that they don’t f*ck it up.

But while things are still good, let’s keep celebrating it! Below is a beautiful acoustic track entitled “The Ravenstag” by Halia Meguid, which features a ton of scenes from the show. The track was originally a fan song but it appears to have caught the attention of the producers as they went all out creating the below video, which features Meguid.

Head below for the video and lyrics.

Lyrics:
blue as night, the ravenstag was flying
as you plucked the hyde, the beast stood crying
was it ever not enough to torment enough, cried out the blood in the veins
of the ravenstag who told me your name

i’ve started dreaming the most peculiar pictures
the blacks and whites and colors are richer
did you feel it kind enough, yes kind enough to plant the seed in my brain
of the ravenstag whispering your name

vulgar fruit, it gleams like vulgar diamonds
a picture of my own designing
wish they’d said, “beware the signs, the meats and wines of the velvet joy and the pain
of the ravenstag when he calls your name”

come into my parlor says the spider
close my eyes, the space between heartbeats grows wider
maybe i’m not brave enough or sane enough to steady the knife of the gaze
of the ravenstag as it whispers my name

morning’s come and the ravenstag’s behind me
i’m a crimson stain and no wind can dry me
is an enemy enough to keep the love of a monster that swallows and maims
the same ravenstag who knows my name?

Reach Your Breaking Point with the Preview and a Few Stills from Hannibal Episode 2.05 - Mukozuke

Dread Central - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 10:30

Just when it seems "Hannibal" couldn't possibly get any better, next week Eddie Izzard returns as Dr. Gideon in Episode 2.05, "Mukozuke." Here's the preview along with some stills, many of which harken back to the series' iconic roots.

"Hannibal" Episode 2.03 - "Mukozuke" (airs 3/28/14; 10-11PM)
WILL REACHES HIS BREAKING POINT AND SENDS A KILLER AFTER HANNIBAL - When one of the team’s own is found in a grotesque tableau, Will (Hugh Dancy) volunteers to assist with the profile.

He informs Jack (Laurence Fishburne) that it’s the work of the Chesapeake Ripper and the Copycat Killer… the two are one and the same.

Dr. Able Gideon (Eddie Izzard) is brought back to the asylum to help confirm Will’s claims of the Ripper’s true identity (Hannibal Lecter) but instead suggests to Will the idea of putting an end to the Ripper once and for all.

Confined behind bars, Will enlists the help of Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) to contact his murderous admirer through her website. Once he has the killer’s attention, Will asks for help dealing with Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen).

Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) becomes suspicious of Will’s intentions after reading Freddie’s article, and Gideon confirms her suspicions, sending Alana and Jack rushing to find Hannibal before it’s too late. Also starring Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson.

[TV] Next On "Hannibal": Just How Dark and Dreary Will They Go?!

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/22/2014 - 09:38

I’m just now watching last night’s “Hannibal” and can’t believe how dark, dreary and daring they’ve gone. This episode carries some of the most disturbing imagery I’ve ever seen on television; I can easily see this causing casual viewers to tune out. Unfortunately, this is what makes this show a million times better than “The Walking Dead,” yet millions more people watch that. Go figure…

Anyways, Will Graham’s problems continue next Friday in Episode 2.5, “Mukozuke”: “When Will assists with a profile he reveals the Chesapeake Ripper and the Copycat Killer are the same person; Will asks Freddie Lounds to help him contact his admirer; Alana becomes suspicious of Will.

Finally some word on that top secret M. Night Shyamalan project, which is being pegged at the director’s first micro-budgeted feature.

TheWrap scored first casting news, revealing that Shyamalan’s Sundowning stars Tomorrowland‘s Kathryn Hahn, pictured, and rising child actor Ed Oxenbould.

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/21/2014 - 23:00

The last few years have seen a bunch of indie developers turning to crowdfunding to make their games a reality, and the top-down isometric sci-fi horror game Stasis is one of the success stories. Its Kickstarter reached raised enough money (and then some) and for good reason.

CryEngine Will Make Sure 'Human Element' Looks Fantastic

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/21/2014 - 19:16

It’s been over a year since I last reported on Robotoki’s ambitious project Human Element, a game that will will mix elements of ARGs (alternate reality games) and human drama, set in a harsh, post-apocalyptic world where zombies aren’t necessarily the worst thing out there.

Today, the developer announced they’ll be using the CryEngine to power Human Element. According Robert Bowling, Robotoki’s President and Creative Director, the reasoning behind this is because the engine “delivers so many powerful features straight out of the box such as the physical based shading system and the infinite terrain from segmented worlds to create a massive open world experience but still allow the visual fidelity and detail our players expect from a first person experience from our team.”

This is good news if you were worried about the game’s graphical fidelity. Me? I’m still waiting to some gameplay footage.

Human Element is slated to release on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Sorry Ouya owners, it ooks like that version was scrapped.

Dylan Penn Condemned by Director Eli Morgan Gesner

Dread Central - Fri, 03/21/2014 - 18:34

Growing up and living in Brooklyn, New York, for thirty years, I can tell you quite a few tales of some creepy condemned buildings. That being said, any place with Sean Penn's daughter, Dylan Penn, cannot be all that ugly. Read on!

From the Press Release
Dylan Penn will make her entrée into acting in CONDEMNED, an original horror film from writer and director Eli Morgan Gesner that begins shooting next month in New York. Caliber Media partners Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller arranged the financing and will produce alongside Jason Sokoloff.

Penn will play the lead role of “Maya,” the youngest in a group of kids who live in a condemned, filthy squat in Manhattan’s Lower East Side with a bunch of crazy degenerate NYC lunatics. The building residents succumb to an infection from their own waste and garbage, inciting a "battle royale" where they all go berserk and try to kill one another. The story is the bastard child of DELICATESSEN, EVIL DEAD 2, and AFTER HOURS.

Gesner was a professional skateboarder as a teenager before being hired by Russell Simmons as one of the original clothing designers at the inception of Phat Farm. Gesner went on to co-create his own label, Zoo York, with Rodney Smith and Adam Schatz and served as design director for over ten years. Gesner later worked as Creative Consultant on HBO’s "HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA" (creator Ian Edelman has hinted at the show being inspired by Gesner’s life). Last fall Gesner helped the infamous street artist Banksy stage his latest show, BETTER OUT THAN IN, in New York City. Gesner currently co-owns and runs SHUT Shakes with his former Zoo York partners.
