’7500′ Is Out In Thailand as ‘Chuyen Bay’! Trailer, Poster and Pics!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/12/2014 - 10:53

A few months back I wondered aloud about the release prospects for 7500, the new movie from director Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge) that’s been sitting on the shelf for a few years. Even the trailer is at least 2 years old at this point.

Well, it turns out that the film apparently came out in Thailand on May 16th! Time will tell if this haunted plane movie starring Ryan Kwanten, Amy Smart, Scout Taylor Compton, Jerry Ferrara and Leslie Bibb will get a domestic release, but we’ve got the poster and a few stills from the new release! It’s called Chuyen Bay over there. Thanks to reader Kris Rawls for the heads up on the poster!

The trailer is mostly old stuff but indicate the release. Click through the gallery to enlarge the pics.

‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ Sequel Update (Exclusive)

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/12/2014 - 10:50

The chainsaw has stalled and won’t be revving up anytime soon…

It’s been well over a year since we reported on a sequel to Texas Chainsaw 3D, Millennium Films and Lionsgate’s followup to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Blood Disgusting regular ‘Kyle K.’ was the most recent reader to ask me about the sequel to the John Luessenhop-directed film, which made $47M worldwide ($34M domestically). I figured we may as well check in with our sources to see if there was any progress. Unfortunately, we have non-news to report. Our sources tell us that the project is surrounded by crickets, most likely because the rights to continue on with the franchise are so incredibly expensive (something that was also relayed to me during the Platinum Dunes years). As of this writing, the project is likely dead.

UPDATE: As anticipated, a Millenium rep reached out for comment, telling us: “While the film’s development is taking a bit longer than usual, it is still an active project on Millennium Films’ slate.

Either way, we have strong faith that Leatherface and the Sawyer family will once again create havoc across screens everywhere. You can’t kill the Sawyers…

Released in theaters on January 4 2013, the sequel followed a young woman who travels to Texas to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with a chainsaw-wielding killer is part of the reward (and her family). Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde and Scott Eastwood starred.

You can read my review of the film here.

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/12/2014 - 10:41

Michelle Forbes, pictured, of “True Blood” and “The Killing,” has joined the cast of A&E Network’s “The Returned,” reports Variety.

The redo of French drama “Les Revanants” hails from A&E Network Studios and FremantleMedia North America. The series has generated heat on both sides of the Atlantic for its moody take on a story of a small town upended when several people presumed dead return without any awareness that they were gone.

Forbes will play Helen Goddard, a mysterious woman who is one of the returnees. Carlton Cuse, exec producer of A&E’s “Bates Motel,” is shepherding “Returned” with Raelle Tucker (“True Blood”). Series has a 10-episode order from A&E. Jeremy Sisto, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mark Pellegrino and Kevin Alejandro are also set to star.

Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard Nabs Distro; New Posters

Dread Central - Thu, 06/12/2014 - 10:00

We've been talking about Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard starring Billy Zane, Mischa Barton, Felissa Rose, and Dee Wallace for quite some time; and now we're happy to announce that the flick has found itself distribution!

Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard was picked up for domestic, UK, and Australia release by Anchor Bay. Stay tuned for a release date!

Director Harrison Smith (Camp Dread) had crafted the first zombie film connected to the controversial fracking industry. With visual special effects by Lord of the Rings' Joe Lawson, makeup effects by Angie Johnson of Evolution, and creature effects by "The Walking Dead" artist Toby Sells, the film takes on an American Western flavor that focuses on heavy action and detailed characters.

Several sequels are already planned under the branding of "Zombie Killers," which is referenced in the film, as the story focuses on a team of young warriors under the leadership of military vet Zane who stand between the "figures" and their small rural town of Elwood.

Dee Wallace of E.T., The Howling, Critters, and Cujo fame plays Sharon Sommers, a terminally ill mother pushing her son to leave the dying town of Elwood, even if it means facing death beyond its gates. Wallace shares the screen with her real life daughter, Gabrielle Stone, who plays her son's love interest, Nikki.

Sleepaway Camp's Felissa Rose plays a religious zealot who works to convince the town's residents of a fixed fatalism that can't be fought.

Linkin Park Debuts “Until It’s Gone” Official Video

bloody disgusting - Thu, 06/12/2014 - 09:00

Alt-rock band Linkin Park has released a highly-stylized video for their track “Until It’s Gone”, which comes from the upcoming album The Hunting Party (out June 17th). The video mixes performance footage with images of things that we will supposedly miss once it’s gone. I’ll tell you what I officially miss, however, and that’s a good sound mix as this still sounds compressed, messy, and just plain awful.

Give it a view below.

Dread Central - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 23:48

Some late casting news has come in for Insidious: Chapter 3 as Deadline is reporting that Stefanie Scott is next to sign up for active duty in this latest spookfest, which is being directed by star and writer Leigh Whannell.

Plot and character details are being kept under wraps, but we do know principal photography is scheduled to start this summer on July 7th.

Focus Features, which acquired the rights to release Insidious: Chapter 3 from FilmDistrict, plans to bring the film to U.S. theaters on April 3, 2015. eOne will distribute the picture in Canada, the U.K., and Spain. Sony will distribute the picture in the rest of the world.

Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions are producing the next installment along with Oren Peli and James Wan. Steven Schneider, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Peter Schlessel, Lia Buman, and Xavier Marchand are executive producing.

The first Insidious told the story of Josh and Renai Lambert and their son Dalton confronting the demons that possess the young boy.

Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, and Barbara Hershey reprised their roles in the film directed by James Wan, who also directed the first installment.

[E3 2014] ‘Deep Down’ Trailer Has All of the Monsters

bloody disgusting - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 21:00

After being quiet for a few months, Capcom has finally gifted us with another trailer for their upcoming free-to-play fantasy RPG Deep Down. The video is delightfully Japanese, but it looks great and manages to show off an impressive number of monsters in its minute-long running time. I’m looking forward to vanquishing every one of them when the game arrives on PS4 later this year.

[E3 2014] ‘Diablo III’ On PS3/PS4 Gets Exclusive ‘Shadow of the Colossus’ Armor

bloody disgusting - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 20:44

Fumito Ueda’s open-world giant killing simulator Shadow of the Colossus is arguably one of the most memorable games from the PS2 era. It was a beautiful, one-of-a-kind experience that is still to this day one of my all-time favorite video games. To go with the previously announced The Last of Us-themed dungeon, Sony has scored another exclusive for the PlayStation versions of the upcoming Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition: a special “Guide of the Colossi” armor set.

Players who purchase Ultimate Evil Edition for PS4 and PS3 will be rewarded with the “Guise of the Colossi,” a unique set of transmogrification plans that unlock six armor appearances inspired by the influential PS2 game, Shadow of the Colossus. These striking appearances will be available to all six larger-than-life classes.

[E3 2014] Sebastian Gets Surrounded In These New ‘The Evil Within’ Screens

Bethesda released some new screenshots from Shinji Mikami’s upcoming survival horror game The Evil Within, and most of them revolve around Sebastian getting his ass kicked by those creepy, mutilated villager people. A few of these screens aren’t new — I had a few sprinkled about my hands-on preview — but some are new to me, so I figured I’d include them all.

The Evil Within is slated to release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 21.

And here’s a little bonus, since you took the time to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this post. Good job.

[E3 2014] New Video Explains ‘Mortal Kombat X’ Fighter Variants

bloody disgusting - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 19:45

Unless you’ve been living under a particularly large rock the last few days, you’re undoubtedly already very familiar with the newly unveiled Mortal Kombat X. What you might not know is how developer NetherRealm Studios is planning on mixing the formula up with the latest game by introducing exciting new features that will have a monumental impact on how it plays. One of the more intriguing new features is the addition of fighter variations.

Each fighter will have three different variations that each dramatically changes their abilities and how they fight. For example, anyone who plans on stepping into the iconic boots of Scorpion will have Ninjutsu, Hellfire and Inferno to choose from.

On top of that, Mortal Kombat X will feature numerous new fighters, a few of which were even revealed in the gameplay footage that debuted on Monday night. Most are still under wraps, but we do have confirmation that the winged woman, giant, and the little guy who’s seen riding him in Monday’s footage are known as D’Vorah, Torr, and Ferra, respectively.

You can see the character selection screen and fighter variations in the video below. They also reveal another newcomer in it: Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade’s daughter, Cassie Cage.

Mortal Kombat X releases in 2015 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

[E3 2014] ‘Let it Die’ Wants to Give Death Meaning

bloody disgusting - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 18:44

Suda 51 has brought us a slew of unusual games over the years, including Lollipop Chainsaw and No More Heroes, as well as the fantastic and hugely underrated Shadows of the Damned. His next game is Let it Die, a brutal, horror-themed free-to-play fighter that we still don’t know much about. It looks like a mixture of Manhunt and Mortal Kombat, as fighters seek each other out in a strange, dirty warehouse-like environment so they can take them out using crudely constructed weapons.

In a recent interview with Famitsu, translated by Gematsu, Suda 51 offered some details on Let it Die, which they’re describing as an “extreme action game” with asynchronous multiplayer and survival aspects.

One of their goals is to grant meaning to death. Part of their plan for accomplishing this is to let players create and use their own avatar to fight with in-game. They’re also going to gradually populate the world with slain player avatars, so when your character dies, they have a chance of showing up in a friend’s world.

Let it Die already sounds radically different from most other fighting games, but Suda 51 and friends aim to take that a step further by having every player spawn with nothing but a pair of whitie tighties and a gas mask. If you want gear, you’ll have to find it, and while there will be more than one way of going about procuring equipment for your fighter, one way is to defeat other fighters and take it off their corpses.

Let it Die will release exclusively on PS4 in 2015.

[E3 2014] ‘Dead Island 2′ Will Be the “World’s Smallest MMO”

bloody disgusting - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 18:17

In case you missed its initial reveal, Deep Silver has unveiled Dead Island 2 — the official follow-up to the original Dead Island. It’s being developed by the team that brought us Spec Ops: The Line, one of the darkest and most memorable shooters I’ve ever played. Seriously, that game is grim.

Dead Island 2 is still largely shrouded in mystery, but a few details were dished out in a recent interview with Bernd Diemer, Game Director at Yager.

According to Diemer, the game world will be comprised of three different locations, including the San Francisco Bay Area, a substantial portion of Los Angeles, and a third area that they aren’t talking about just yet. They’re describing the game internally as the “world’s smallest MMO,” as it features 8-player co-op. Unless you specifically opt out of the multiplayer, you will always be playing in a world inhabited with up to seven other players.

Check out the full interview with Diemer below.

[E3 2014] A Super Creepy Debut Trailer for ‘The Assembly’

bloody disgusting - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 17:52

Sony just revealed a new title that’s being built from the ground up for their Project Morpheus virtual reality headset, and it looks creepy. The game is called The Assembly, and it’s being described as a mystery game, though after watching its debut trailer I’m also noticing a bit of sci-fi horror in there, too. It’s being built from the ground up with the Morpheus headset in mind, so VR functionality won’t be an afterthought.

This eerie CG trailer offers a lot of questions and no real answers. Thankfully, The Assembly developer Patrick O’Luanaigh was able to offer a few details on the game in a post on the PlayStation Blog.

The Assembly includes lots of the gameplay mechanics that we found worked well in VR. For example, you get to control two different characters at various points, and in VR, you really notice details like their different heights, sounds and voices. Rather than playing as a silent character, we found that playing the role of characters in the story works really well, and helps make The Assembly feel quite different to most other VR projects.

The game has a rich story written by Tom Jubert, a talented young writer behind indie hits like FTL, Penumbra and The Swapper. Players are flung into the underground world of The Assembly, a secretive collection of scientists, academics and engineers who believe morality in society is preventing scientific advancement and are committed to discovering a universal theory of everything, at any cost.

The Assembly is a PS4 exclusive.
