Examine a Dozen Images and a Preview of Hannibal Episode 2.04 - Takiawase

Dread Central - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 11:00

Several rather creepy photos and a preview of next week's Episode 2.04 of "Hannibal," entitled "Takiawase," have arrived; and if you're curious as to just what the heck "Takiawase" means, we've already looked it up for you so read on!

We're not sure what it has to do with the episode, but according to Dictionary Central (how could we not source them with a name like that?), it's "a mixture of firm vegetable pieces... each cooked separately in separate pans until al dente, mixed with fried cubes of tofu and flavoured with a light soya sauce."

Knowing Dr. Lecter, we're going to assume he'll be frying up something other than tofu.

"Hannibal" Episode 2.04 - "Takiawase" (airs 3/21/14; 10-11PM)
BEVERLY FINDS A CLUE ABOUT THE MURAL KILLER THAT SENDS HER DOWN A LIFE-THREATENING PATH - Our team is called in when a body is found in a meadow, the cranial cavity converted into a beehive.

Meanwhile, Beverly Katz (Hettienne Park) continues to work on the mural killer case, secretly consulting with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) to decipher the killer’s human tapestry. Will insists that the killer was put in the mural by Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and urges her to prove that Hannibal is the real Chesapeake Ripper and Copycat Killer.

Also starring Aaron Abrams, Scott Thompson, Amanda Plummer, and Raúl Esparza.

Sip Some Blood and Relax To the 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Poster

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 10:20

Easily one of my favorite films of the year, and quite possibly one of my all-time fav vampire films is Jim Jarmusch’s love story Only Lovers Left Alive, which features remarkable performances by Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska.

Open in theaters April 11, Sony Pictures Classics released the official theatrical one-sheet that really sets the mood. Ryan Daley liked, but didn’t love the film. Evan Dickson more so agreed with me.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

Killer Be Killed (Feat. Members Of Mastodon, Soulfly, Dillinger Escape Plan) Release Two Songs

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 10:00

The new metal supergroup known as Killer Be Killed, which features Troy Sanders (Mastodon), Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), and Dave Elitch (ex-The Mars Volta), have released two songs from their upcoming self-titled debut album, which comes out May 13th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The tracks, “Wings Of Feather And Wax” and “Face Down”, can be heard below.

Listening to the two tracks, I’m really intrigued. It’s metal with enough of a twist to keep me captivated. Also, the three vocal approach gives a lot of depth and diversity to the music. It also helps that each of these guys are 100% fantastic at their respective styles, so combining them creates a very unique sound.

'Dark Souls II' Review: It Hurts So Good

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 23:05

From Software struck gold with Demon’s Souls, the 2009 dark fantasy RPG that would eventually spawn a franchise–as well as a much-needed name change. It was critically acclaimed for its unforgiving nature, beautifully realized world and innovative multiplayer. It should have become a cult hit; a critical darling with a steep learning curve that seemed destined to be embraced by a loving, albeit small, community of diehard fans. Instead, its sequel saw similar reviews and significantly better sales.

This week saw the release of Dark Souls II — find out if it continues this series’ success in my review.

I feel like I should start off a review of a game like this with a disclaimer, of sorts.

For the unfamiliar, like its predecessors, Dark Souls II is a very difficult game. It’s challenging not only in terms of its combat or because of the unpredictability of the enemies it throws at you, but because of a handful of systems that have been woven into each other, gracefully, if not mercifully, to make this a difficult game to sit through.

And much like its predecessors, if you’re willing to let it teach you, it can also become one of the most rewarding gaming experiences you’ll ever have.

Unfortunately, its world may prove too harsh for some. This is a game that doesn’t rely on the annoying hand-holding that so many other modern AAA games employ. Instead, it teaches its players to adapt, mostly through death, to overcome. Believe me, you will die, and you will die often. If that doesn’t sound like something you’d like to endure, this might not be the game for you.

If you’re patient, you’ll soon realize that every seemingly malicious decision on the designers’ part was made to make this game truly unforgettable.

There’s a lot to love about Dark Souls II, from the systems that have been intricately tied into each other to the way it practically forces you to explore its world. With so many linear games inundating retail shelves everyday, it’s nice to play one that wants you to shy away from the beaten path, for that’s where its treasures lie. It’s often the more dangerous path that reaps the greatest rewards.

If hidden loot doesn’t serve as significant enough motivation for you, it’s gorgeous world should do the trick. There’s an impressive attention to detail that permeates every environment. The only thing that holds it back would be the technical limitations of the platforms. This series is beginning to show its age, and that fact isn’t aided by the impressions made by the still very new next-gen consoles.

But visuals aren’t everything, and I doubt you’ll care about murky textures when a giant monster is trying its best to tear you apart. Death is something that has to be embraced in this series. I went through one controller–almost two–while I was working on my Demon’s Souls review. It takes some getting used to, sure, but it’s a part of the game. Everything wants to kill you, so it’s up to you to make that as difficult a feat as possible.

Thankfully, there are tools in place to help, and most of them revolve around this game’s incredibly innovative multiplayer. One of which is the clever ability to write messages that show up in other players’ worlds. If there’s a trap or a particularly tough fight ahead, you can let others know by scrawling it on the floor. These player-written warnings have saved my life more than a few times. A warning: not every player has good intentions. Some may fool other players with false messages. Be wary.

If you need something a bit more substantial than that, you can always call upon other players by summoning them into your world. If a boss refuses to die, getting a few friends to help take it down is almost always an option. Though, like every facet of this game, this too, comes with a darker purpose. If your world is open to aid, it’s also open to invasion. If a malevolent player wants to take a break from their world to wreak havoc in yours, they can choose to temporarily invade another world with the singular goal of eliminating its player.

For fans of the series who are more interested in knowing what’s been changed, Dark Souls 2 has seen a number of tweaks, all of which I’m happy to say have positive effects on the experience as a whole.

One fundamental difference is player health. In the previous game, if you were hurt, consuming an Estus Flask would remedy the situation. Now, Estus Flasks take a backseat to Lifegems, which gradually replenish your health. Estus Flasks are still in the game, and those too have seen tweaks. Now they can be improved by collecting shard fragments that increase the number of times they can heal with each use.

Humanity is no longer measured by a numeric rating. When your character dies, they become Hallowed. Each death from there on reduces the character’s maximum health, with the maximum reduction resting at 50%. The only way to reverse this is by consuming a rare Human Effigy, which grants Humanity after being burned at a bonfire.

The classes have been refined, resulting in the removal of the Hunter, Pyromancer, Thief, and Wanderer. We’re left with the Warrior, Knight, Swordsman, Bandit, Cleric, Sorcerer, Explorer, and Deprived — the basic, no-frills class. It’s still a well-rounded cast, though as a former Pyromancer in Dark Souls, there is a fireball shaped hole in my heart this time around.

While there are likely to be “Dark Souls 1.5″ jokes to be made about this entry, Dark Souls 2 does more than enough to warrant another trip to its twisted world. It takes everything the last two games did well and does all of it better. The controls, character customization, world, and enemies are more polished, deep, and thoughtful. This is a game that’s about defeat as much as it is triumph, and it favors those who seek exploration, discovery, and horror, all of which can be found here in equal amounts.

The Final Word: Don’t let its last-gen exclusivity fool you — Dark Souls II is a masterpiece. It’s beautiful, horrifying, unforgiving, and is easily one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had during my gaming career. Just make sure you know going in that this is going to hurt.

Casper Van Dien to Beat Off a Supernatural Being in June

Dread Central - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 19:59

Around these parts we love us some Casper Van Dien. We've had a soft spot for him since his days as Johnny Rico in Starship Troopers. We know the guy has the goods, and hopefully he gets a chance to stretch his legs a bit with the new feature June!

Variety reports that Van Dien and Addy Miller (“The Walking Dead”) have joined supernatural thriller June, shooting later the month in Louisiana.

Victoria Pratt, Eddie Jemison, Theodora Greece, and Lance Nichols have also been cast.

Kennedy Brice (“The Walking Dead”) stars as a 9-year-old orphan who shares her body with an ancient supernatural being whose mission is to destroy mankind to allow nature to prevail on earth.

L. Gustavo Cooper (Velvet Road) will direct from a script he co-wrote with Sharon Y. Cobb. Gregor Habsburg (Hellbenders), Jacquelyn Frisco (Tell-Tale), and Duane A. Sikes will produce with Raven Banner Entertainment partners Michael Paszt, James Fler, and Andrew T. Hunt.

Film Adaptation Planned for Nicholas Pekearo's Posthumously Published The Wolfman

Dread Central - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 19:44

Exactly seven years ago, NYC auxiliary police officer Nicholas Pekearo and his partner, Yevgeniy Marshalik, were shot and killed in the line of duty. At the time Pekearo was just getting his footing as a novelist, and now his posthumously published The Wolfman is heading to the big screen.

Per Deadline, Macmillan Entertainment and Everest Entertainment Group are developing a feature film from The Wolfman, a novel written by Nicholas Pekearo in 2008 and published by Tor Books in 2009.

The story tells of a lost soul who happens to be a werewolf. He struggles with his affliction until he decides to focus on the bad guys who deserve it, including a serial killer preying on young girls.

Pekearo, a crime and comic book buff, was shot six times by the crazed gunman who also killed his partner. Both were unarmed. For more info on what transpired, check out this story in the New York Times from March 16, 2007.

Macmillan Entertainment is the film and TV arm of Macmillan Publishers. Its head, Brendan Deneen, and Everest Entertainment Group’s Sean Davis are working closely with Pekearo’s mother, Iola Latman, to shape the werewolf story for the screen. Davis also runs the management company The Phoenix Organization.

“I read The Wolfman shortly after its release and couldn’t get the character of Marlowe Higgins and the world Pekearo created out of my head,” Davis said. “This is not your typical werewolf piece, and I was amazed by how much new territory he uncovered in this first novel. I have high hopes for this as it seems there is now finally a market for pieces like this, seeing the success of brilliant limited series such as 'True Detective,' and audiences now have a hunger for out of the box anti-heroes. In talking with those around him while he was alive, it was Nicholas’ hope to see this turned into a series, whether it was film or television, taking a similar journey to the one Bruce Banner did in The Incredible Hulk. Having died a hero’s death trying to protect people while chasing down a madman while he was unarmed, I hope Nicholas’ voice as a writer finally gets the attention it deserves and the journey he started with Marlowe continues.”

The book's synopsis follows; look for more on the adaptation as it comes.

Synopsis:
Marlowe Higgins has had a hard life. Since being dishonorably discharged after a tour in Vietnam, he's been in and out of prison, moving from town to town, going wherever the wind takes him. He can’t stay in one place too long--every full moon he kills someone.

Marlowe Higgins is a werewolf. For years he struggled with his affliction, until he found a way to use this unfortunate curse for good--he only kills really bad people. Settling at last in the small town of Evelyn, Higgins works at a local restaurant and even has a friend, Daniel Pearce, one of Evelyn's two police detectives.

One night everything changes. It turns out Marlowe Higgins isn’t the only monster lurking in the area. A fiendish serial killer, known as the Rose Killer, is brutally murdering young girls all around the county. Higgins targets the killer as his next victim, but on the night of the full moon, things go drastically wrong...

New 'Yaiba' Screenshots Showcase A Massive Boss Battle

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 19:12

I’m not sure what it is for real, but to me, the boss that takes up a majority of the screen-time in these new Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z screens looks like a living — and extremely pissed off — Mayan temple. I’m sure Yaiba will use his cyborg ninja skills to make ribbons of it, but it’s no less impressive.

Also, colors. Take note, developers: they exist, and they’re wonderful to look at.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z arrives on March 18 for Xbox 360 and PS3, with PC following on March 21.

Place Your Order with this First Clip from The Double

Dread Central - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 16:23

With black comedy The Double arriving in the UK on April 4th from StudioCanal (it hits Stateside a month later from Magnolia), the first clip from the film has arrived. Check it out, and expect more soon!

The Double is directed by Richard Ayoade, who co-wrote the script with Avi Korine based on a Fyodor Dostoevsky novella.

It stars Jesse Eisenberg in a dual role along with Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Chris O'Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts, and Paddy Considine.

For more info visit The Double on Facebook.

Synopsis:
Simon James is a ghost. Friends, family, and coworkers meet his every action with complete indifference. He grimly goes through the motions, hoping for recognition that never comes. All of this changes when James Simon arrives.

Physically, James and Simon are dead ringers. Yet, in temperament, James is everything Simon is not: personable, spontaneous, assertive, and desirable. When James begins to take over Simon’s life, he is forced to act.

Jesse Eisenberg’s fantastic double performance is bolstered by a cast of seasoned character actors who bring Simon James’ gloomy retro world to life. Directed with a deftly comic hand and assured visual technique by Richard Ayoade, The Double is a stylish black comedy with acerbic wit to spare.

Naughty Dog announced today that The Last of Us has surpassed a remarkable six million sold.

The developer will be chatting about “some of the techniques and process that went into making The Last of Us” at a presentation at GDC next week.

In related news, it was recently confirmed that Sony is moving forward with a movie adaptation. It will be produced by Sam Raimi, with a script penned by the game’s creative director, Neil Druckman. Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, as well as game director Bruce Straley will serve as “creative architects.”
