Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with LA-based electronic artist WVM to bring you the exclusive song premiere of “Empire”, which you can hear below.

WVM states:

“Empire” and “Pale Horse” were made using analog synths and drum machines. I was heavily inspired by the synth music of the 80s but the songs are not rooted in any era as they sound like they could come from the past, present or future.

“Empire” comes from WVM’s upcoming album Waves Of Nothing, which can be pre-ordered here.

[Comic Book Review] “The Names” # 2 Is Infectious As Hell

bloody disgusting - Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:56

‘The Names,’ billed as “The Wolf of Wall Street meets Kill Bill,” is a radical thriller that’s both ruthlessly impassioned and viciously ruckus. It’s also cliffhanger city. The last page doesn’t come close to alleviating the built-up tension from 22-pages of sizzling mystery and bloody action…it only intensifies it. The juxtaposition of the widowed Katya and her stepson Philip really shines in issue two, adding the depth of a character study into the fast-paced, gruesome mixture.

WRITTEN BY: Peter Milligan

ART BY: Leandro Fernandez

PUBLISHER: Vertigo Comics

PRICE: $2.99

RELEASE: October 1, 2014

Reviewed By Bree Odgen

Issue two takes us international as Katya begins the hunt for clues that her late husband, Walker, sent her premortem (only to be useful postmortem). Don’t you worry, the international bashing of a man’s skull until he sings like a canary looks a lot like it does in America. And as with last issue’s beat-down, Katya loses her suspect—right before the critical information is revealed—to some kind of mysterious stroke that appears to be manufactured by The Names to silence the squeals of desperate men. But it’s Philip who puts this together because… it takes two (in this case) to make a thing go right. While Katya is the muscle, the fight, and the pure, unadulterated revenge, Philip is the brains; the Beautiful Mind, if you will. But together they make a deadly intelligent team. And although they dislike each other, on a level not quite understandable to the reader just yet, they share a deep love for Walker and will both cross any line to avenge his death.

Meanwhile, The Surgeon is causing terror of his own accord. He’s reminiscent of The Joker on a high dosage of PCP. He’s now got the cops under his scalpel and therefore anything that comes of their investigation is compromised. With the power of The Names behind him, his razor sharp scalpel, and his psychopathic nature, not a whole lot can stand in his way. Basically he’s an insanely powerful loose cannon and those are terrifying…truly, the scariest type of villain. Not to mention it’s beginning to look like his agenda might split from that of The Names, and then he’s not a loose cannon anymore but a D-40 shooting through the air straight for Katya and Philip. While The Names seem sure that Katya won’t become a problem, The Surgeon sees the situation for what it is and is poised to act.

‘The Names’ is insanely fast-paced, infectious as hell, and a shit ton of entertainment. The dynamics between the characters are incredible, and the only thing that rivals the perfect mystery that’s been set up to slowly unfold is the fire blazing inside Katya. As she follows Walker’s scavenger hunt for clues, she kills who needs to be killed and doesn’t look back. My personal favorite part of the series is the tenuous relationship between Katya and Philip. It’s either going to blossom into something kickass or implode in a mess of batshit futility. This comic is a keeper. It’s intelligent, highly stylized crime fiction with a deadly sexy broad and dangerous curves ahead.

[Comic Book Review] “Cutter” #1 Is A Solid Start To A Slasher

bloody disgusting - Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:56

‘Cutter’ #1 is a solid start to something that could be incredibly unique or could look like an unfortunate b-movie supernatural horror. When a deadly, dark secret comes back to haunt a grown-up group of old high school pals, shit gets real and people start getting cut. Like…by giant hedge shears. The whole “past sins coming back to haunt you by picking you and your friends off one-by-one” is a familiar horror trope made popular by…well a ton of things. Agatha Christie, for one. But for the purpose of this article and all the teen slasher references I want to make, let’s go with ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer.’ This will either be fantastic, or it’s possible we’ll end up with Jennifer Love Hewitt screaming into the sky, “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, HUH?”

 

WRITTEN BY: Seamus Kevin Fahey / Robert Napton

ART BY: Christian Dibari

PUBLISHER: Image Comics / Top Cow

RELEASE DATE: October 1st, 2014

PRICE: $3.99

Reviewed By Bree Odgen

‘Cutter’ starts off with a bang, or a slash, rather, so gruesome I felt like I could actually hear the sound of shears sinking into flesh. It’s a fantastic cold open that sets up the story perfectly. Someone or (more intriguingly) something is holding a grudge and she’s going to murder away her rage. Cut to: Jeremy and his pregnant wife, and the happy, normal life he’ll probably never get to live. Because his old high school friends are being hacked to bits and not only does it appear that he’s a suspect, he also seems to be a target.

As Jeremy puts the pieces together, rather quickly I might add, he starts to warn the rest of his old high school crew that their past may literally be coming back to haunt them. Through randomly placed, sparse and quick teasing panels, we see a girl named Emily Higgins, a girl clearly in pain and distress, a girl we are led to believe was tortured (definitely emotionally, possibly physically) by Jeremy and Co. back in the day. But because no one believes Jeremy, these jackasses are gong to keep dying.

It feels very much like I’m writing a synopsis for the next Wes Craven film, which is why I’ll say it again, this could be fantastic or it could be a bit cliché and trope-y. I mean we’ve even got the mean sheriff buddy who believes no one until he randomly decides to believe everyone. You know the type.

Regardless of its ubiquitous nature, ‘Cutter’ is rocking some fantastic black and white art by one of my favorite horror artists, Christian Dibari. Honestly, blood splatter never looked so good in black and white. And the mystery is written very well: the “what” and the “why” are delightfully enthralling. There’s nothing about this comic that makes me want to stay away, just nothing to prove itself mind blowing–not YET.

Perhaps the coolest aspect of ‘Cutter’ is the fact that it’s a 4-issue weekly miniseries that runs throughout October. A horror comic just for October, you say? That’s the kind of candy I like. There is some insane talent on this project (SEAMUS KEVIN FAHEY!!!) so I’m inclined to be excited over exasperated.

[Comic Book Review] “Dream Thief: Escape” #4 Is Worth Reading

bloody disgusting - Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:56

Knife fights, sons out for revenge and shoots outs with possessed killers. That pretty much sums up “Dream Thief: Escape” #4. Things wrap up in the conclusion to the latest story for John Lincoln and his magical mask and family business.

 

WRITTEN BY: Jai Nitz

ART BY: Tadd Galusha

PUBLISHER: Dark Horse Comics

PRICE: $3.99

RELEASE: 1 October 2014

Reviewed by: Your Friendly Neighborhood Brady
Twitter: @mrbradysteele

The flashbacks have almost caught up to the present day story to tie things together nicely. Writer Jai Nitz knew what he wanted to accomplish here with this storyline: a legacy. Legacy heroes / villains / anti-heroes are some brilliant creations to make. Think of how much more story potential that gives a character. Every major comic company has at least one or more in their stables. It’s always fun to see different versions of characters, new or old. In this case, Dream Thief is now known to be a family business. Business that gets passed down despite parents best wishes. It’s one of the most bizarre father-son buddy tales I’ve ever read. Make no mistake, this is worth reading.

Greg Smallwood, the original artist in the first mini-series, is now only providing covers which is a shame. Tadd Galusha took over artwork for the series last month and the tone of the story has completely shifted. Gone are the gorgeous paneling and bleeding over of art from page to page. Instead, the action is more straight forward and generic. It’s not bad, but it’s not as good as it used to be. Galusha’s faces look more comical than serious or varied than they did last issue.

As I said before, this book is still worth reading. It is by far one of the darkest family bonding experiences you’ve ever seen. This is not a family fishing trip but more like a murderous rundown for revenge. Still, father and son Lincoln manages to keep me intrigued enough to see where this Dream Thief will turn up next. The premise of this story demands some better art that is more moody than run-of-the-mill. I hope next time John Lincoln wakes up, we all see how gritty and great it can be.

‘We Gotta Get Out of This Place’ Takes a ‘Bad Turn Worse’

bloody disgusting - Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:43

Starz Digital Media announced they will release Bad Turn Worse (formerly We Gotta Get Out of This Place), the directorial debut of Zeke and Simon Hawkins, in select theaters and on VOD on November 14th.

After a weekend of partying with stolen money, three Texas teens (Jeremy Allen White, Logan Huffman, and Mackenzie Davis) find themselves indebted to a sociopathic criminal named Giff (Mark Pellegrino in a breakout performance). To repay their debt, Giff forces the teens to steal from his boss, a money-laundering gangster named Big Red (William Devane). Things go from bad to worse when betrayal, distrust, and corruption complicate an already dangerous plan.

The film features a variety of young rising stars and familiar faces including Jeremy Allen White (Showtime’s “Shameless”, Afterschool), Mackenzie Davis (What If, AMC’S “Halt and Catch Fire”), Logan Huffman (Refuge, ABC’s “V”), Mark Pellegrino (The Big Lebowski, SyFy’s “Being Human”) and William Devane (The Dark Knight Rises, FOX’s “24” & “24: Live Another Day”). Bad Turn Worse was written by “Black List” screenwriter and pop culture T-shirt designer Dutch Southern. Justin Duprie and Brian Udovich produced for Rough & Tumble Films.

Bad Turn Worse premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival before it won the audience award at the 2013 AFI Fest.

The film will be released theatrically in the US and Canada day-and-date with its release across all major VOD outlets, including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Xbox Video and cable providers.

‘Summer of Blood’ Poster Shows Who’s a Total Dick…

bloody disgusting - Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:39

Dark Sky Films will release remember the bloody summer with their October 17 VOD and theatrical release of the absolutely hilarious must-see hipster horror Summer of Blood (read our review).

Check out the film’s equally hilarious one-sheet to go with the theatrical trailer. Onur Tukel is mind-blowing in this hipster horror film that’s loaded with gut-busting laughs. If you enjoy horror comedy, definitely seek this out.

Writer/director Onur Tukel turns in a hilarious performance as the monumentally lazy, socially oblivious and commitment-shy Erik Sparrow, who is dumped by his career-woman girlfriend (Anna Margaret Hollyman, White Reindeer) when he rejects her rather charitable marriage proposal. Feeling lost, he turns to a disastrous string of online dates that successively eat away at his already-deteriorating confidence until a lanky vampire turns him into an undead ladykiller. Soon, Eric is prowling the streets of Brooklyn in search of anything to satisfy both his maniacal sex drive and his hunger for blood. A collision of absurd, self-deprecating wit and existential curiosity, Summer of Blood is a hilarious horror-comedy with a clever bite all its own.

Onur Tukel (Septien, Red Flag), Alex Karpovsky (Girls), Anna Margaret Hollyman (Gayby, White Reindeer), Dakota Goldhor (Thumbsucker), Dustin Guy Defa (Bad Fever), Keith Poulson (Hellaware, Listen Up Phillip) all star.
