'Lollipop Chainsaw' Has Sold More Than A Million Copies

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 16:21

It’s been a while since I last had Lollipop Chainsaw on the mind. Suda 51′s quirky and colorful zombie chainsaw ‘em up wasn’t as memorable as I would’ve liked, but it was still a funny and mostly enjoyable game that definitely deserves a sequel. We may be one step closer to seeing such a thing happen, now that the game has sold over a million copies. The news comes from developer Grasshopper Manufacture’s Twitter page, where it was followed by a celebratory “Woot Woot!”

If you haven’t played the game, I called it as sweet as it is sour in my review. As much as I enjoy the idea of another Lollipop Chainsaw, Shadows of the Damned deserves it more. How about you — w Suda 51 game would you like to see more of?

Get your celebration gear on! Lollipop Chainsaw has sold more than a million copies!!! Woot Woot!!

BOOM! Goes Brisson.

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 16:02

BOOM! Studios has started a new press initiative where they want to focus on the work of specific creators. This week they’ve decided on Ed Brisson of “Sheltered” and his new upcoming Image series “The Field.” Brisson has some exciting new titles on the way from BOOM! that are sure to be a hit with fans of biker gangs or robotic cops. Check out the release from BOOM! after the jump!

Ed Brisson (Sheltered, Comeback) will write the next comics story arc for SONS OF ANARCHY, as the series becomes an ongoing series. Initially planned to be a six-issue limited series, fan response for the comics have been so overwhelmingly positive that the decision was made to extend SONS OF ANARCHY to an ongoing series. SONS OF ANARCHY is based on the ongoing FX Network television show of the same name created by Kurt Sutter that follows the exploits of an outlaw motorcycle club in California’s Central Valley. The show’s 7th season is set to debut this year.

Brisson’s run starts with a new storyline in SONS OF ANARCHY #7 that debuts on March 12, following a six-issue story arc by Christopher Golden that got the series off to a great start. Damian Couceiro will continue to provide art. Brisson’s new story arc is set after the events of season three. Here’s a brief synopsis: “Gemma and Tara must keep the peace on the homefront, as Jax, Clay, and their SAMCRO brothers are doing time in prison. The town of Charming is more dangerous than ever with the Sons of Anarchy behind bars!”

Brisson is no stranger to crime fiction, and is also the writer for ROBOCOP: LAST STAND #8 (which goes on sale on the same day, March 12), in which he provides the epilogue to Frank Miller’s story. (As you may or may not know, our ROBOCOP: LAST STAND miniseries is based on Frank Miller’s unused screenplay for the “RoboCop 3″ film.)

Sound off in the comments if you’d like to see either of these books reviewed on the site.

'Lords Of Shadow 2' DLC Confirmed, Coming March 25

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 15:33

Konami has confirmed that the rumored Revelations DLC for the newly released Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is indeed a real thing, and it’s coming later this month. As suspected, the expansion will feature a playable Alucard, Dracula’s son, and his arsenal of powers that includes the ability to transform into a bat or a wolf — hopefully not for any stealth-based missions — and time manipulation.

I found Lords of Shadow 2 to be more than a little disappointing in my review. Maybe MercurySteam can remedy some of the base game’s issues with this upcoming expansion.

But seriously, no stealth missions.

Revelations arrives on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 on March 25.

SXSW 2014: Robert Rodriguez's Museum Featuring Original Frank Frazetta Masterpieces Launches on Location!

Dread Central - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 12:00

There's so much cool stuff happening at SXSW 2014, it's hard to know where to begin. That being said, if you're one of the lucky ones who are attending the event, here's something you DON'T want to miss!

From the Press Release
For a limited time only during SXSW 2014, Robert Rodriguez is proud to launch a museum featuring his own specially curated collection of art which includes the work of celebrated American artist Frank Frazetta.

Considered to be the most influential fantasy artist in history, Frazetta contributed iconic artwork to classic works of fiction for Conan the Barbarian, Tarzan, and John Carter of Mars among others. The gallery will be open to the public daily from Saturday, March 8th, to Sunday, March 16th, from 12 Noon-8 PM. The museum is located at 920 Congress Ave. in Austin, TX. The gallery will have a $20 entrance fee benefiting the Frazetta Estate's preservation of the art for a new Frank Frazetta museum.

The gallery will also feature an original SIN CITY masterpiece by FRANK MILLER, original art by DREW STRUZAN including his rendering of Sylvester Stallone for the movie poster FIRST BLOOD, and original poster art for THE THING. Original paintings by New Pop Art master SEBASTIAN KRÜGER including hyper real paintings of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, and Danny Trejo. Bronzed art sculptures from CLETE SHIELDS. Shields' work has been commissioned by Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Robert Rodriguez, and Samuel L. Jackson.

In addition, the gallery will feature SIN CITY character self-portrait paintings from cast members including Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lady Gaga, Rosario Dawson, and Josh Brolin painted with Robert and his mentor, artist George Yepes, during the making of SIN CITY 2. There will also be a selection of hand-numbered giclée prints of Frazetta pieces photographed and printed by Robert Rodriguez available for purchase. Proceeds from the prints will benefit the Frazetta Estate to preserve the art for a new Frank Frazetta Museum.

The idea for the museum has been long in the making. Robert Rodriguez has been touring Frank Frazetta original art at Comic-Con and Wizard Con to continue the wish of Frank Frazetta, a friend and collaborator of Robert's who always wanted audiences to see his paintings in person. The original Frazetta museum in upstate New York closed after the passing of Frank Frazetta in 2010. The new Rodriguez museum features other world-class artists Robert has also worked with and studied under over the years with art that he's collected himself and others that are on exclusive loan for this event. The FRANK FRAZETTA COLLECTION has an unprecedented amount of original masterpieces including Death Dealer, Egyptian Queen, At the Earth's Core, Conan, and Dark Kingdom as well a rare painting Frazetta did for the movie FROM DUSK TILL DAWN among others. There are 12 masterpieces total.

"This has to be the most kick-ass museum in the world," said filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. "For one, it's the only place you can see original Frank Frazetta art, 12 masterpiece paintings total, alongside original art by Frank Miller, Drew Struzan, Sebastian Kruger, and Clete Shields. Throw in character paintings by the cast of Sin City 2 and 'From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,' and you will never see anything like this event anywhere, in any museum. I'm very excited to be showcasing this mind-blowing art by my favorite artists and collaborators in Austin."

    History Channel's Cryptid: The Swamp Beast Brings Legend to Life

    Dread Central - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 11:30

    The History Channel has a new series called "Cryptid: The Swamp Beast" airing on Monday nights, and since it sounds up our alley we thought we'd bring it to your attention with more details and a teaser video.

    In every region of America there are legends of strange, unidentified creatures that stretch back for centuries.

    In the Northwest many credible people swear to have sighted Bigfoot. Near Lake Champlain in the Northeast, locals have sworn up and down to seeing a strange, prehistoric-like creature in the water. And down South in the swamplands, it’s no different: Some of the most deep-rooted and fearsome monster stories have endured. In the new original series "Cryptid: The Swamp Beast," one of America’s oldest mysteries and bone-chilling legends comes to life through dramatizations, eyewitness accounts, real news reports, and expert interviews.

    In a remote Southern town the past few years have brought a dramatic uptick in strange occurrences, but now whatever has been lurking in the swamps is intruding into human territory. There have been a rash of cattle mutilations and pets being snatched away from backyards. With the attacks not matching up forensically with any known predators, suspicions have spread. Terrified residents claim to have seen signs of voodoo and are conjuring up old Cajun legends like the “Rougarou,” a mythical shape-shifter, as a possible culprit. Others swear they’ve seen a huge, bipedal creature locally known as a “skunk ape” lurking about at night.

    The series follows a small animal-control business that responds to various calls and sightings and a deputy sheriff who believes the real culprit is some twisted individual deep in the swamp. As the weeks pass, the sightings intensify, and even the most skeptical people in town begin to wonder if its darkest legends, and their worst fears, have in fact come to life.

    "Cryptid: The Swamp Beast" mixes legends with eyewitness accounts and crafts them into an entertaining and scary fictional story that speaks to America’s macabre history of folklore. It features startling real interviews with those who believe the legends and have seen strange things with their own eyes. Folklore experts, biologists, and original news clips play throughout each episode as well to add further real-world context.

    New episodes air on Mondays at 10/9c. For more info visit "Cryptid: The Swamp Beast" on History.com.

    Bethesda Confirms 'The Evil Within' Hardcover Art Book

    bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 11:00

    Hello, my name is Adam, and I have an addiction. That addiction is hardcover art books — specifically but not exclusively related to video games — which I adore. My collection is paltry, I’m sure, but I’m no less proud of it. There’s something about video game concept art that really appeals to me. Before it’s translated to a virtual world, unshackled by the limitations that technology brings, it’s raw creativity.

    All that is an extremely long winded way of saying Bethesda has announced hardcover art books for three of their upcoming games, including Wolfenstein: The New Order, Dishonored, and our most anticipated horror game of 2014, Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within.

    I’m still not entirely sold on Wolfenstein’s latest offering, it looks a little grey, but the other two will soon be added to my collection. If you missed it the first dozen times I’ve posted it here on Bloody Disgusting, below you’ll find the latest gameplay demo from The Evil Within.

    The Evil Within arrives on August 26th for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4. If you’re interested in its art book, you can pre-order it now on Amazon.

    Feel free to send Adam an email or follow him on Twitter:

    Starring Iain De Caestecker (ABC’s hit series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures), and Allen Leech (“Downton Abbey”), In Fear has taken the horror world by storm, garnering rave reviews wherever it is played. The film stunned audiences in international film festivals in nine countries, including Canada’s Toronto After Dark, Germany’s Rosebud Entertainment Fantasy Festival, Spain’s Fancine – Festival de Cine Fantastico, and South Korea’s Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival.

    In Fear is a tense psychological horror about a young couple's fight to make it through the night. Home invasion, but in a car. In real-time.

Driving, lost and tormented in the night, primal fears of the dark and the unknown give way to fear that you have let the evil in, or that it is already there.

    First 'Oculus' Clip Will Give You Night Terrors

    With SXSW getting underway today, MTV scored the first clip from Mike Flanagan’s(Absentia, Ghosts of Hamilton Street) absolutely fantastic horror flick Oculus, opening in theaters everywhere on April 11 from Relativity.

    In the clip, a girl looks into “the mirror” only to be attacked by her father. She awakes to learn she’s having a night terror…

Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only wants to move on with his life; but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents’ deaths were caused by something else altogether: a malevolent supernatural force­­ unleashed through the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror in their childhood home. Determined to prove Tim’s innocence, Kaylie tracks down the mirror, only to learn similar deaths have befallen previous owners over the past century. With the mysterious entity now back in their hands, Tim and Kaylie soon find their hold on reality shattered by terrifying hallucinations, and realize, too late, that their childhood nightmare is beginning again…

    Is The New Tool Album Completed And Ready For Release?

    bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 09:11

    According to CraveOnline, guitarist Adam Jones of progressive rock/metal band Tool was speaking with a meet-and-greet fan before the band’s Portland, OR show and stated that the new album, the follow up to 2006′s 10,000 Days, is 100% complete and will be released this year. Aside from some talk about strange time signatures, that was the most he was willing to give.

    Tool has been known to be pretty good about misdirecting people when it comes to album release dates. One member will say one thing and another will refute it only to say something completely different. So, let’s not get too excited just yet, shall we?

    That being said, I seriously hope this is true.

    Tool tour dates:
    March 7 – Eugene, OR @ Matthew Knight Arena
