Charming and mysterious, Camiel Borgman seems almost otherworldly, and it isn’t long before he has the wife, children and nanny under his spell in a calculated bid to take over their home life. However, his domestic assimilation takes a malevolent turn as his ultimate plan comes to bear, igniting a series of increasingly maddening and menacing events.“

Hailing from Tasmania, Australia, electronic artist Animalia (aka Jill Krasnicki) has released her debut full length album Mouth Full Of Teeth yesterday, which features eight tracks of dark pop and electronica (snag it on (Bandcamp).

Directed by Brandon Cronenberg (Antiviral), the video features Krasnicki as she presses her face against a piece of glass, flattening her face into strange visages, while an almost Argento-esque use of color creates a disorienting effect.
Head below to see the video.

Black Fawn Distribution and Juice are pleased to release the first four minutes of their new acquisition Discopath.

Now, the award winning slasher has found a home on DVD in Canada through Black Fawn Distribution and on digital and cable VOD via Juice. Discopath is set for release in Canada on Tuesday, June 10th.
“Discopath has become a fan favourite at film festivals everywhere, and it has generated a lot of buzz,” states Black Fawn Distribution’s owner Chad Archibald. “We felt it would be a cool idea to give horror fans a sneak peek. The opening of Discopath really highlights Renaud’s attention to detail and sets up the style for the rest of the film.”
Juice’s president Paul Zimic concurs: “We’re extremely proud of Discopath, and we couldn’t have a more perfect partner to release than the dedicated and twisted minds at Black Fawn Distribution.”
Discopath has been celebrated at film festivals around the world including Fantasia International Film Festival (Montreal), Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (Brussels, Belgium), FrightFest (London, UK), and The Blood in the Snow Film Festival (Toronto), where it took home Best Film, Best Actor, and Best Screenplay honours.

Unable to control his murderous impulses that stem from a traumatic childhood experience, Duane Lewis (Jeremie Earp-Lavernge) transforms into a dangerous serial killer exiled to Montreal. Discopath features an unbelievable set design and a killer disco soundtrack (featuring cuts from KC & The Sunshine Band and Kiss).

Another still has arrived for Joston Theney's new project Adam K., and we have this bad boy for you right here. The still features Sarah Nicklin as "Amanda Cole," who's apparently trying desperately to avoid the warm, bloody embrace of the flick's big bad.
"What really makes the killer so scary is that he could literally be any 'normal' guy that you run into on the street," says Nicklin. "He's completely unassuming (until all Hell breaks loose)."
She continues, "I think the biggest impact it would have [on horror fans] is to make people look over their shoulder and be more suspicious of their neighbors or the good samaritans that seemingly just want to help them out because you never know what their ulterior motives might really be."
Writer/director Joston "El Rey" Theney has announced that Adam K. will soon be making its way to theaters and home video. Theney previously said, "In early fall we'll have the Los Angeles premiere, then a Bay Area showing. Some festivals have reached out to us, but we're only going to do about two or three of those."
The film stars Brinke Stevens, Arielle Brachfeld, Kristin Wall Wheatley, Sarah Nicklin, Jessica Cameron, Graham Denman, and Dylan Hobbs. It's written, directed, and produced by Joston "El Rey" Theney.
ADAM K. is a gory take on the tale of nature versus nurture that proves - evil wears a smile! Mild-mannered and seemingly good-natured auto insurance claims adjusters Adam Kraul sets out daily to make friends, however ends up with mutilated victims when his invitations for friendships are rejected.

The BBC is on the run from the zombie apocalypse.
A unique, new twist on the reality game show, BBC Three is taking a group of contestants and putting them through a zombie apocalypse.
The British cabler announced “I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse,” in which eight contestants will begin an apocalyptic adventure trapped together in a shopping mall, surrounded by the walking dead. The contestants must live by their wits, make difficult decisions, and use urban survival tactics. Their ultimate goal is to avoid the lethal bite of a zombie and stay alive.
During their intense stay, they will face tasks that are necessary for their survival. These tasks are potentially dangerous and will put them in close contact with the undead. The threat will be constant: one bite and they will leave the show in grisly style.
It’s a question of teamwork, as the more of them that stay alive the easier it is to thrive in a zombie-eat-human world. The Army is on its way, but how many of the contestants will have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse?
“It’s nice to finally have a game show where if you get a challenge wrong, you get your arms ripped off and your brains eaten out,” joked Tiger Aspect’s executive producer Andrew Brereton.
LA horror-heavy electronic punk rock duo Creature Feature have released a new track entitled “Nearly Departed”, which you can listen to below. The lyric video is chock full of creepy, macabre lyrics that will make this a perfect track for any Halloween party.
RLJ/Image Entertainment has now shared the official domestic trailer for Peter Engert’s Aftermath, a new post-apocalyptic horror starring Edward Furlong (Night of the Demons), Monica Keena (Freddy vs Jason, Night of the Demons), Andre Royo and C.J. Thomason.
“The devastating horror of a nuclear apocalypse is now reality and nine desperate strangers find themselves clinging to life in a farmhouse cellar, while radioactive fallout descends on the darkened world above. These would-be survivors face the nightmare of dwindling supplies, poisonous air and the greatest threat of all — the hordes of zombie-like refugees who want in. With each dying day, their choice becomes clearer — stay and let the makeshift shelter become their tomb or face the unknown terrors of the world outside.“
The apes attack on this stunning new poster for FOX’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to the awesome Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
In theaters July 11, Matt Reeves directs with Andy Serkis, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Judy Greer and Jocko Sims starring.
In the sequel to the prequel, “A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.”
Finnish record label Blood Music has announced that they have signed legendary black metal band Emperor to their roster and will be releasing a “complete works” box set in early to mid-2015 that will be, “…one of the largest vinyl box sets ever created in the history of music.” This will be a one-time only limited edition pressing with no copies of the vinyl available for individual sale.
The label states:
We’ve been working behind-the-scenes for more than a year – carefully compiling every detail of Emperor’s oeuvre from the minute they began in 1991 until their final breath in 2007. We are working directly in conjunction with the members themselves to compile the most incredible, beautiful, and archival collection one could ever imagine…
Emperor has only released four full-length studio albums, beginning with 1994′s In The Nightside Eclipse and ending with 2001′s Prometheus: The Discipline Of Fire And Demise. Head below to listen the former.
It looks as if the latest entry in Capcom’s zombie genocide simulator series Dead Rising 3 might not be an Xbox One exclusive for long. Because the Internet sees all, a listing for the game was spotted on the Steam Database, raising the question as to whether or not Capcom is planning on bringing it to PC in the near future. It wouldn’t be all that surprising, seeing as both Dead Rising 2 and its spin-off Off the Record also arrived on PC.
We liked Dead Rising 3; Tyler had nothing but good things to say about it in his review. Sadly, the entirety of its season pass offering was found lacking.
I imagine this will be confirmed at E3.
Well Go USA has released another clip from Juno Mak's Hong Kong vampire flick Rigor Mortis, and right now we have it for you complete with a suicide attempt and other ghastly happenings. Check it out!
Rigor Mortis will be on VOD outlets June 6th along with a limited theatrical roll-out on the same day. The theatrical listings thus far include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, and Honolulu.
In this eerie and chilling contemporary action/special effects-laden homage to the classic Chinese vampire movies of the 1980’s, writer-director-producer Juno Mak makes his feature directorial debut. Co-produced by J-Horror icon Takashi Shimizu, and reuniting some of the original cast members of the classic Mr. Vampire series, Rigor Mortis is set in a creepy and moody Hong Kong public housing tower whose occupants, we soon discover, run the gamut from the living to the dead to the undead, along with ghosts, vampires, and zombies.
RIGOR MORTIS stars action movie veteran Chin Siu-ho (Siu-ho) as a former vampire hunting actor who now finds himself reaching the end of the line as a washed-up star, separated from his wife and alienated from his son. Down on his luck and with barely a dollar to his name, he checks into Room 2442 in the housing estate, an allegedly haunted flat. His aim is to end his misery by doing himself in, but instead Siu-ho is interrupted by some of the other "occupants" of the building including a Taoist master-exorcist (Anthony Chan), a traumatized housewife with a tragic past (Kara Hui), as well as a seemingly benign elderly woman (Paw Hee-ching) who has an empty coffin conspicuously hanging in the middle of her apartment. Soon it becomes apparent to Siu-ho that the people around him and the situation are far from normal. Despite his lack of belief in superstition, Siu-ho is soon thrust into the battle of his life as vicious vampires with unsettled business begin to rise from the dead...
