Dario Argento’s ‘Suspiria’ Being Developed to Series

bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 10:32

ScreenDaily is reporting that France’s Atlantique Productions and Italy’s Cattleya have entered into two-title co-development and production deal, one of which will be a television series based on Dario Argento’s Suspiria.

“Suspiria De Profundis”, is inspired by the 19th century English writer Thomas De Quincey’s eponymous book, which was made into the classic Italian horror film Suspiria in 1977 by Dario Argento. Argento will serve as the series’ artistic supervisor, says the site. I find this odd considering Argento hasn’t made anything good in decades.

“Suspiria De Profundis” will be an English-language period horror series in which the author De Quincey is the lead character. Styled as a new Sherlock Holmes, the story will explore psychological fantasies of evil and attempt to solve fearful mysteries. It will be set in London and Rome at the turn of the 20th century.

They’re aiming for 12 episodes that run 50-minutes each, with multiple seasons.

“The extraordinary freedom of expression and creativity that modern TV drama now offers and the interest that the public has shown towards it have encouraged me to take a stab at this new genre,” said Argento.

It should be clarified that this is a co-production deal with plans to develop the series for American audiences. While it sounds exciting, I don’t expect to see this come into fruition. That’s just my personal gut reaction…

Howl of a Good Time (Short)

Dread Central - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 10:30

Starring Tamara Glynn, Leslie Easterbrook, Renae Geerlings

Directed by Patrick Rea

Take a good look around, horror aficionados – at this point in the game if you’re not sawing off limbs by the truckload, or running through the woods with your Go-Pro while attempting to flee from some unknown hostile presence, then creatively, you’re just not trying. However, sometimes all it takes is a few inspired individuals, and just a little bit of runtime, and BOOM – an entertaining return to form, where simplicity can win you over.

Topping off at a whopping 9 minutes, Patrick Rea (director of Nailbiter) completes his latest short, titled Howl Of A Good Time, which has already been making the convention and film festival rounds, and is drawing rave reviews from critics. Rea received a little help in addition to his double-duty of both directing and writing, calling on Tamara Glynn of Halloween 5 fame, returning to an on-screen presence after a 26-year hiatus to not only act, but assisting in an executive producing role. The short film takes us inside a movie theater where all patrons, young and old, are clamoring to make their way inside for tonight’s special feature, but unbeknownst to the masses, there is a more sinister motive at hand for the ticket-holders, and while it would be a completely sadistic act to give away any more details, you can rest assured that things will get hairy.

Glynn is not the only horror professional to have some time in front of the lens – in addition we’ve got Leslie Easterbrook (The Devil’s Rejects) and Renae Geerling (Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2) playing theater employees, all three are fun to watch, and each one takes a big bite out of each scene they’re in, respectively. While this might come off as a little tepid for some of our more hardcore fans, it’s always a nice departure to pump the brakes a bit, and allow ourselves a little time to breathe from all the zombie-slaying, home-invading, poltergeist-wrangling, devil-doll possessing, bigfoot-hunting, alien-invading celluloid duds that have deluged us like a tidal wave of manure. This is something that parents can check out with the kids, and all parties can be entertained equally, so check out the trailer below, and judge for yourselves.

The Horde Ready to Fight Back

Dread Central - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 10:00

Another horror star-studded feature is on its way, and right now we have your first details and look at the film’s artwork. Where will you be when The Horde attacks?

From the Press Release:
313 Films and Razors Edge Productions have signed worldwide marketing rights and representation for their feature film THE HORDE with Circus Road Films of Los Angeles. The action-horror film features a cast of horror icons, including Paul Logan (Code Red), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Costas Mandylor (Saw IV), and Vernon Wells (Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior). The film is currently in post-production with expected completion in early summer 2015.

Glen Reynolds, the CEO of Circus Road Films, says, “The Horde is a wild and scary ride for fans of action and horror. We are so very proud to be representing the film for worldwide distribution.”

313 Films has also revealed the movie’s poster, allowing a sneak peek at the various action and horror elements from the movie.

Filmed in Los Angeles, THE HORDE follows ex-Navy Seal John Crenshaw (Paul Logan) as he accompanies his girlfriend and her students on a weekend nature photography expedition deep into the woods. What should be an educational and fun-filled weekend turns into horror as the group is besieged by an unspeakable evil: a horde of hideously disfigured, mutated humans with an insatiable taste for blood. As things go from bad to worse, Crenshaw becomes their only hope if they want to reemerge from the woods alive.

THE HORDE is directed by Jared Cohn and written by Paul Logan. It is produced by Doreen Bennett, Beth A. Thuna, Paul Logan, Gabriel Campisi, Joel Bennett, and Devin Reeve and executive produced by Sonia Thuna.

Behemoth Release “Messe Noire” Video: Dedicated to H.R. Giger

bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 09:23

Polish blackened death metal band Behemoth has released an official music video for their track “Messe Noire”, which comes from last year’s phenomenal album The Satanist (review). Directed by Zev Deans, the video is dedicated to Swedish surreal artist H.R. Giger, who sadly passed away last year.

Deans states:

The story of Lucifer’s fall, followed by his defiant rebirth, reminds me of Nergal’s own personal struggles of recent years. Like Lucifer, Behemoth has recovered from hardship, and they are stronger than ever. With Messe Noire, I was lucky enough to work with some of the most talented people in the genre. I owe the success of this project to the intense SACRIFICE that Sharon and the rest of team gave to this work.

Nergal adds:

It was actually our drummer Inferno’s idea to use Zev Deans. He showed me PORTAL video that literally blew my fuckin’ mind! For a long time we’ve attempted to reach a new ground and artistically leave the comfort zone. “The Satanist” is THE record that challenges us on so many levels… and here we are, exploring new grounds with a video producer who is a genuine visionary! “Messe Noire” video surely adds new quality to our art and makes it even more transcendental… I am proud!“

The video shows a sacrificial ritual that is meant to raise a giant beast, aptly named a Behemoth. Vocalist/guitarist Adam Nergal Darski portrays the role of Lucifer.

[Interview] ‘Leatherface’ and ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ Producers Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman!

bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 08:40

With Leatherface, the Texas Chain Saw Massacre prequel, on the way, we thought we would catch up with two of the film’s executive producers.

Lati Grobman, pictured left, and Christa Campbell, right, make up Campbell Grobman Films, the company responsible for the resurrection of Leatherface in Lionsgate and Millenium’s 2013 Texas Chainsaw 3D. And while they work on the prequel, as well as a remake of George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead, they’ve executive produced Stonehearst Asylum, The Taking of Deborah Morgan and even Embrace of the Vampire.

“We have been very lucky,” Campbell tells Bloody Disgusting when asked about their lucky streak, “although we don’t believe in luck, we believe in hard work. We are big believers in the saying, ‘You snooze you lose!’ ”

“Luck comes to a lot of people, the question is what you do with this luck,” adds Grobman. “We have the tendency to become obsessed with something we believe in – in the good connotation of the word – call it extreme passion. It is also important to not give up and capitulate to the word ‘no’, which we heard a lot while trying to revive [Texas Chain Saw Massacre]. “Then, when it came alive, all the ‘no’ people came upfront to claim their prize. That’s just life: success has a lot of fathers, failure is orphaned.”

How did Campbell Grobman Films come to be?

“Lati had been producing films for Millenium for many years,” explains Campbell. “I was acting in a film called Finding Bliss. I helped the production lock in one of their lead actors, got them product placement, and post-production money. Lati came to me and said, ‘Christa you just helped produce that film, you should get a credit.’ I said, ‘No, I just wanted to act in it.’ We went back and forth, but that experience planted the seed.

“Then when Texas Chainsaw came along it was a natural transition for us to finally come together to create Campbell Grobman Films.”

“Christa is a natural born producer,” added Grobman. “We don’t work in the film business, we live the film business, we enjoy what we do.”

Campbell was an actress before turning to producing, we wondered if she would ever return to acting, and maybe even star in one of her own films.

“I work as a producer every single day of my life, it’s difficult and challenging in a way different from acting, which is why I love it,” she explains. “I’m still acting, I’m just not out there actively looking for jobs. If someone calls and asks me to do something in their film, I’ll be there with bells on. I’ve always believed in this business, and I believe in this day and age you have to be able to do everything and not limit yourself.

“I would never cast myself in my own film,” she added. “It feels weird….unless the director came to me and asked if I would play a role, then I would say, ‘Sure, why not?’, but I would never tell a director, ‘Oh, by the way, I’m playing the lead in this film.’ ”

While their resume is all horror, the duo won’t limit themselves to one genre.

“I love horror, Lati loves documentaries, so of course we are going to want to make things we are passionate about,” said Campbell. “That being said, it is a business, and we make a lot of other films that are big blow-em-up box office hits.”

“I’m not into horror like Christa is,” adds Grobman. “I like dramas, romantic comedies, and sure, absolutely passionate about documentaries. I can sit and watch them and talk about them all day long. Unfortunately, I can’t say it’s a lucrative business and so we are not making many of them.”

Getting into the new Chain Saw prequel, Leatherface, Campbell explains where the concept came from.

“When you’re working with a big company, it’s a process of people coming in to pitch their ideas. At the end of the day, its a group decision: Mark Gill, Boaz Davidson , Beth Bruckner are part of team Millennium.”

She also said that it’s “not likely” that Leatherface will be in 3-D, while also revealing to Bloody Disgusting exclusively that they have the rights to five Texas Chain Saw films! But she warns…

“We have the rights for 5 films,” said Campbell, “but it always depends on the success of the last one whether or not you move forward.”

You hear that fans, go see the movie if you want more. Your dollars count.

As for the upcoming Day of the Dead remake, Campbell tells us that, “It’s been a long road with this film but it’s because we want to get it right,” while adding that they “are still working on the script.”

Campbell Grobman films have also produced the Bryan Singer presented fan favorite The Taking of Deborah Logan and the new Steven Schneider film Shut In.

The Taking was shot out in North Carolina where you have a lot of heart and passion, but hardly any money for an ambitious script,” Campbell tells us. “We all worked very hard on this film and I love reading on twitter about all the fans that go crazy for it. People write to us that they have watched it 10 to 15 times! Its insane! We love it!”

Shut In is next to come out,” she adds. “Adam Schlindler directed the film. We first met Adam and Brian when they came in to pitch for Day of the Dead. I went home and watched Delivery and was so impressed that Lati and I decided we were on a mission to make a film with these guys. Four months later we were making Shut In.”

In the film, Beth Riesgraf plays Anna, who suffers from agoraphobia so crippling that when a trio of criminals break into her house, she cannot bring herself to flee. But what the intruders don’t realize is that agoraphobia is not her only psychosis.

Watch this spot for plenty more from Campbell Grobman Films as they announce and release their next projects.

Signal, The (UK DVD)

Dread Central - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 05:00

Starring Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp, Laurence Fishburne

Directed by William Eubank

Distributed by Entertainment One

While taking a cross-country road trip to help their friend, Haley (Cooke) relocate, plucky college students Nic (Thwaites) and Jonah (Knapp) decide to take a detour to an isolated spot in the desert in an attempt to track down a notorious computer hacker who goes by the moniker ‘NOMAD’. Unfortunately for the trio, something sinister is afoot – and it soon becomes apparent that the three of them have been led into some sort of trap.

Things aren’t exactly what they seem, however… and this is where director William Eubank’s The Signal gets smart.

After witnessing Haley apparently being sucked into the air in a ‘blink-and-you’ll-miss-it’ moment, Nic awakens in what appears to be a hospital bed – the setting abruptly shifting from the darkness of the desert to the bleached-white clinical oppression of a medical facility. Very soon, he’s introduced to Damon (Fishburne), a scientist who explains to him that he and his friends are suspected to have come into contact with an alien intelligence – and as such, they must be kept isolated and observed in case this contact has made them in any way dangerous to the general population.

As he’s taken through various tests of reasoning and mental capacity, Nic struggles to keep his aggression in check – worries about his friends remaining forefront on his mind.

But there’s a big surprise in store for him, and his friends, as things in the facility most definitely aren’t what they initially appear to be – and that’s as far as this review will go towards describing the further events in The Signal.

Straight out the gate, The Signal is one fantastic-looking film. From the beautiful natural desert and mountainous vistas of the early scenes, to the clinical presentation of the facility and on towards some staggeringly gorgeous slow motion in the climactic action sequences, Eubank’s eye for visuals is on top form.

The storyline itself is compelling – the abrupt switch of locale and complete sense of confusion remaining just on the right side of totally perplexing. The second act does tend to drag somewhat, with perhaps one or two too many short scenes of Nic’s continued resistance to Damon and will to escape the facility – but it’s aided by punctuating moments of solid mystery, for example when an unseen ‘something’ gets loose and wreaks havoc in the corridors, with only the aftermath sporting huge gouges in the facility’s walls offered to the audience.

Working within this framework of confusion and veiled intentions, the cast each do an admirable job with their roles. Brenton Thwaites leads the show with his turn as Nic, capably realising the character’s frustration with his current situation and physical disability, and his overriding will to see his friends safe. Beau Knapp is lively as the more overtly nerdy Jonah, but manages to elevate what initially feels like a standard, archetypical character to higher than expected levels of empathy as the film reaches its climax. Olivia Cooke does well as Haley, but the involvement of her character is much weaker than the other two – frequently acting as little more than a MacGuffin for Nic to chase, even if the unfolding story constantly pulls at threads hinting much bigger implications for her that never come to fruition. Laurence Fishburne does his quiet, sombre and well spoken thing in just the way that he can – there’s nothing particularly surprising from him here, but he fits the role of Damon perfectly.

The revelations, thrilling action sequences and bombast come thick and fast in The Signal‘s home stretch, winding up to an effects-laden finale that sports some very impressive CGI and a superbly cinematic feel. There are answers to be found to many of the elements of its narrative, but The Signal isn’t content to simply hand them all over on a plate – one example being the origins and fate of an elderly lady (played by the wonderful Lin Shaye) who crosses paths with the lead trio and subsequently suffers some rather peculiar effects.

It all leads to an ending that answers the big question, but leaves you to figure out the rest – making The Signal a more than capable little mind-bender of a flick with plenty up its sleeve to keep you hooked, even if some of its more forced ambiguity feels like a stretch too far at times. Despite a few foibles and some lax pacing, it’s ultimately a gripping yarn sporting some great ideas, excellent effects work and a human core that stands out when all is said and done.

On Entertainment One’s UK DVD release of The Signal, we have a collection of deleted scenes that seem to have been wisely excised in favour of preventing the second act from becoming far too bogged down, a short but hilarious outtake featuring Fishburne’s reaction to a prop failure, around 10 minutes of behind the scenes footage showcasing what looks to have been a rather difficult desert-based shoot, and an audio commentary with director William Eubank, co-writer Carlyle Eubank and co-writer/producer David Frigerio.

Warner Brothers Ready to Spend Five Nights at Freddy’s

Dread Central - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 21:31

If you’ve ever played the video game Five Nights at Freddy’s you’re currently sitting in one of two camps … those who loved it, and those who sat through it in a state of disbelief that this game has gained the traction that it has. Speaking of traction…

THR is reporting that Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to Five Nights at Freddy’s, the popular video game series created by Scott Cawthon.

The feature adaptation will be produced by Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment as well as Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions.

The game takes place in Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a darker version of Chuck-E-Cheese, where an animatronic animal band performs kiddy songs by day, and goes on murderous rampages by night. The goal of the game is survive a night locked inside, knowing that a furry death machine might jump out of the dark at any moment.

We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie,” said Grahame-Smith.

The story really lends itself to being a movie and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to,” said Cawthon. Um… there was a story?!? Do tell!

The project is currently out to writers.

Adam Stone and Jay Ireland will exec produce. Jon Berg and Nik Mavinkurve are overseeing for Warners.

Warner Bros is Making a ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie

In the latest edition of Hollywood Headlines That Should Surprise No One, we finally have news of a Five Nights at Freddy’s movie adaptation that Warner Bros. allegedly has in production.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a film adaptation of developer Scott Cawthon’s insanely popular trilogy of horror games that mostly consist of jump scares is being produced by the same trio that’s handling the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s novel It — Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment as well as Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions.

5 Creepy Real Places Horror Games Should Visit, Part 5

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 19:00

I started this series in 2010, and I’ve been sporadically returning to it about once a year since. Aside from making a solid argument for the adoption of hermitude as a life style, this series is super fun to write. It’s admittedly a little unsettling to think that this wonderful planet we call our home, with all its beauty and splendor, could also be hiding churches made from bones, a museum dedicated exclusively to the majesty of penises, a sescluded island populated by deadly snakes, and another that’s gradually succumbed to an infestation of creepy dolls.

That’s not even the worst of it. I’m sure you haven’t forgotten the Aokigahara Forest, a 35 square kilometer patch of foliage that rests at the base of Mount Fuji. Hundreds of people have ventured into those woods with the singular goal of dying, resulting in its being given the absurdly horrific monicker of Japan’s Suicide Forest.

I wanted to write this sooner, but it took me awhile to find a batch of locales that were nightmarish enough to warrant it. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed by these places, so without further adieu, let’s take a look at five more terrifying places.

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 18:01

Retro Promenade, the group behind the fantastic The Next Peak trilogy, have curated yet another themed retrosynth album that should be something you immediately download. This time they’ve gathered a ton of different artists together to pay homage to the master of horror himself, John Carpenter!

Simply titled Carpenter, the 20 track album features original tracks from amazing artists such as Lazerhawk (if you haven’t gotten Skull & Shark yet, what’s wrong with you?), Gunship (the group behind this incredible music video), VHS Glitch, and a whole lot more.

These artists have written original songs based off of multiple John Carpenter films, including Halloween, Big Trouble In Little China, They Live, Christine, The Thing, and more.

Downloading the album is free but I highly recommend forking over even a few bucks to make sure that albums like this can keep happening!

‘Human Centipede Part 3′ Assembled For May Release!!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 16:59

The 500-person centipede has finally been assembled, and will head to prison this coming May!

Human Centipede Part 3 (Final Sequence) will be released in limited theaters and VOD platforms May 22nd, 2015 (no assembly required), EW reports.

Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey, who played the villains Dr. Heiter and Martin in the first and second films, respectively, are featured. Eric Roberts, Robert LaSardo, Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, Bree Olson, and director Tom Six also star.

Director Tom Six has promised that the movie is “100 percent politically incorrect.”

Oh, and here’s the official plot crunch of the final Human Centipede!

Bully prison warden Bill Boss (Dieter Laser), leading a big state prison in the US of A, has a lot of problems; his prison statistically has the highest amount of prison riots, medical costs and staff turnover in the country. But foremost he is unable to get the respect he thinks he deserves from his inmates and the state Governor (Eric Roberts). He constantly fails in experimenting with different ideas for the ideal punishment to get the inmates in line, which drives him, together with the sizzling heat, completely insane.

Under threats of termination by the Governor, his loyal right hand man Dwight (Laurence R Harvey) comes up with a brilliant idea. A revolutionary idea which could change the American prison system for good and save billions of dollars. An idea based on the notorious ‘Human Centipede’ movies, that will literally and figuratively get the inmates on their knees, creating the ultimate punishment and deterrent for anyone considering a life of crime. Having nothing to lose, Bill and Dwight create a jaw-dropping 500-person prison centipede.

The new Human Centipede is going meta once again, which is awesome. I love that Six continues to put a middle finger up to critics of the first film by launching the franchise into the “real world” where absolutely terrible things happen. Bring on the 500-person ‘pede!

‘Five Nights at Freddy’s Cosplay is a Bad Idea

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 16:59

The scariest thing about the Five Nights at Freddy’s series isn’t the fact that its premise revolves around a handful of animatronic abominations that spend their nights wandering the empty hallways of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. It’s the things we don’t know about them. Their origins and motivations. What drives them, aside from a seemingly insatiable bloodlust?

I understand why the Five Nights community would want to pay tribute to these games, but bringing them into the real world is not a good idea. It’s only a matter of time before that fan-made Freddy animatronic is found at the scene of a murder.

So as impressive as this cosplay from Tumblr user IguanaMouth is, it’s only a matter of time before the cosplayer starts thinking strange thoughts while wearing the costume. These thoughts will gradually congeal into whispers, telling them to do what Bonnie does. Then, murder spree.

Rob Zombie’s ’31′ Wraps, and He’s Still Announcing Cast!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 16:02

Rob Zombie loves to cast the “oldies but goodies”, and on the eve of wrapping his Halloween slasher 31, the rocker-turned-director adds one more to the massive cast.

Meg Foster plays ‘Venus Virgo’, owner of the Venus Virgo Happy Time Fun Show.

Foster also starred in Zombie’s The Lords of Salem, as well as They Live, along many others.

You can keep up with all of the 31 news by clicking here.

“31 follows five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large secret compound known as Murder World.

Once there, they have 12 hours to survive a terrifying game called 31 in which ‘The Heads’- murderous maniacs dressed as clowns – are released to hunt them down and kill them.”

Jeff Daniel Phillips will play ‘Roscoe’, the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show.

Malcolm McDowell plays ‘Father Murder’, the owner of Murder World for which the film is based.

Judy Geeson plays ‘Sister Dragon’, who runs Murder World alongside McDowell. She joins David Ury, who will be playing ‘Schizo-Head’, one half of murderous team of brothers living inside Murder World. Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs was recently cast as ‘Panda Thomas’, with Elizabeth Daily (E.G. Daily) playing ‘Sex-head’, and Torsten Voges as the insane partner of Death-Head. Ginger Lynn is featured as ‘Cherry Bomb’, a very special friend of Doom-Head (portrayed by Richard Brake), as was Jane Carr, who will portray ‘Sister Serpent’, a wicked cross of Satan meets Mother Goose. Pancho Moler will be seen as ‘Sick-Head’, and Tracy Walter stars as ‘Lucky Leo.’

Daniel Roebuck plays ‘Paster Victor’, an unfortunate participant in last year’s game of 31.

Lew Temple, Devin Sidell and Sheri Moon Zombie also star.

Most people will see Lost River because it’s Drive star Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut. The real reason is to see Ben Mendelsohn, who will become your new favorite actor if you watch Netflix’s “Bloodline”, a new series in which Mendelsohn puts on a performance of a lifetime.

Mendelsohn stars in Lost River, which opens April 10, 2015. And while we don’t know how big his role is, we do see him in this clip with “Mad Men’s” Christina Hendricks.

Lost River also stars Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes, Iain De Caestecker, Matt Smith and Barbara Steele.

The film is set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city. Billy, a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while Bones, her eighteen-year-old son, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.
