bloody disgusting - Thu, 03/06/2014 - 12:25

Opening here in the States on March 28, check out the quote-filled TV Spot for Gareth Evans’ The Raid 2: Berandal, which Ryan Daley raved about out of the Sundance Film Festival.

Starring The Raid‘s Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian and Donny Alamsyah, as well as Julie Estelle (Kuntilanak), “Rookie Jakarta cop Rama (Uwais) thought the battle was over and was finally able to resume a normal life. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen – a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls. He couldn’t have been more wrong.

Formidable though, they may have been Rama’s opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. With Rama’s triumph over the small fry, he has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. Rama now needs to protect his family, who are at risk, one choice remains, to protect his infant son and wife. To do so he must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap. And so Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, a journey that will force him to set aside his own life and history and take on a new identity as the violent offender “Yuda.”

In prison he must gain the confidence of Uco – the son of a prominent gang kingpin – to join the gang himself, laying his own life on the line in a desperate all-or-nothing gambit to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end.

Devin Townsend Posts Incredible "Willy Wanka" Medley

bloody disgusting - Thu, 03/06/2014 - 11:20

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Devin Townsend. The man is not only a genius songwriter and a brilliant guitar player but he’s also one of the nicest and most genuine guys I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing. He’s really something out of this world and the day that he stops making music is going to be a truly devastating day for the industry.

But let’s not think morosely here, shall we? Instead, let’s celebrate just how awesome Townsend is with a new video that was posted by EMGpickupsTV that shows the crazed musician playing through a nearly 11 minute medley entitled “Willy Wanka”. It’s super enjoyable to watch simply because of how dynamic the piece is. It goes from ambient beauty with lush reverbs and spacious delays to crunchy distorted madness and back again. And what’s even better is that it’s 100% obvious how much Townsend is enjoying himself. He performs for the camera, he smiles along with the music, he not only taps his feet but moves his whole body to the music. This is a man who has given himself entirely into what he does and it’s inspiring.

Go on below. Give it a watch. If you haven’t checked out Devin and his work before, let today be the start of an amazing journey for you.

[BD Review] 'Dark House' Is a Berserk Blend of Horror Tropes (In a Good Way)

bloody disgusting - Thu, 03/06/2014 - 10:31

Jeepers Creepers director Victor Salva is back with another horror flick, and goddamn he throws A LOT of stuff into this one. Dark House is a whirlwind of twists, gore, and cliches all packaged up in a demented tale of rural carnage. Many of the bits and pieces of the narrative are familiar, but Salva puts these tropes to good use to shape his own brand of terror. Although it doesn’t always work, there are enough fun moments to make Dark House one to watch, especially thanks to its berserk second half.

The movie is longer than it needs to be by about 15 minutes because there is so freaking much going on. In particular, there are some hammy scenes of melodrama that don’t fit and make the dash to the finish line feel a little clumsy. These hiccups distract from the main narrative as well, which is absolutely bonkers and requires no side romance bullshit.

Nick Di Santo is a young, disturbed individual. He’s cursed with the power of premonition. If he touches someone, he can sometimes see their death. His mother is locked up in an asylum, which burns to the ground shortly after he visits her. She leaves Nick an old mansion, so he packs up two buddies and his pregnant girlfriend to go check it out. But first they have to find it.

The locals claim the house was destroyed in a flood years back, but there’s an urban legend about it still intact somewhere deep in the woods. As they’re looking for it, Nick and co. cross paths with a team of land surveyors who show them the way. Once they find the house, the movie unravels a barrage of well-worn horror material, including biblical demons, a creepy cellar, and the titular haunted house. There’s also Tobin Bell of Saw fame playing the creepy caretaker, who may or may not have Nick’s best intentions in mind.

While there’s a lot of familiar territory here, Dark House‘s story plays out in a way I didn’t see coming. When Salva makes this cliche cornucopia work, he makes it work really, really well. I especially dug the axe-wielding henchmen – they’re good for a few nightmares. At times the story is in danger of coming off the rails, but overall it’s a decent tale that’s certainly one of the most original haunted house films I’ve seen recently. Because right when I thought I had it figured out, Salva throws seven curve balls at once.

When the film pulls back from its horror core, it does stumble a bit. Like I mentioned earlier, there’s some melodrama thrown in that feels terribly forced. Those parts could’ve been shaved to create a tighter narrative. But overall Dark House is a fun horror romp that uses its many influences to create its own monster.

Cinedigm is releasing Dark House on VOD and home video on March 14.

The documentary also includes their month-long American tour, from the fatal shooting at LAX on November 1 for which Dir En Grey were present, to the looming possibility of cancelling shows due to a tour bus breakdown. The three months of filming captures on video anxiety about their new challenges, unimaginable realities, and a ray of hope at the end of hardship. Why take the stage? – This is the film that documents the five members who repeatedly ponder this unanswerable question and fight their way through difficulty. Don’t miss their words and feelings from the inside.

I’m a fan of this band and really enjoyed their last album, Dum Spiro Spero, so I’ll be keep on checking this out. You can watch the trailer below.

[Exclusive] RPWL's Kalle Wallner Shares His Top 5 Horror Movies!

bloody disgusting - Wed, 03/05/2014 - 18:00

If you haven’t checked out German progressive rock band RPWL, I highly recommend giving them a listen. They hearken back to the days of Pink Floyd, Kansas, Yes, etc… Y’know, that classic era of prog that is remembered so fondly?

The reason I reminisce so much is because it feels like guitarist Kalle Wallner took that feeling I get from RPWL and created a Top 5 Horror Movies list from it. The films he’s chosen are throwbacks to some of the great classics, movies that inspired and influenced countless others that followed them. For those of you who are fans of older horror, this is the perfect list for you! Check it out below.

Make sure to pre-order the band’s upcoming album Wanted right here.

Tarantula
When I was a kid I was very scared of spiders. On evening I was watching TV alone and I zapped through the TV stations. Suddenly there was this huge spider on the screen and I was horrified. Of course ridiculous but I will never forget this moment.

Nosferatu the Vampyire
I’ve been a big fan of the German actor Klaus Kinski for years. This movie is funny in a way but Kinski is doing such a great job. Awesome!

The Raven
“Quoth the raven: Nevermore.” What a quote… an Vincent Price is amazing!

Pit And The Pendulum
Another film with Vincent Price. It’s a brilliant story that does’nt need all those modern effects. Just a story.

Frankenstein (1931)
For me Boris Karloff was the best of all the Frankenstein’s monsters. You never forget his face and his typical gestures.

Have you embraced the madness?

NBC wants to know if you’ve caught the season premiere of “Hannibal,” and has thus shared the following new promo poster.

The series continues Friday with Episode 2.2, “Sakizuki”. “The case of the human soup becomes clearer when a victim that has escaped from the killer’s clutches washes downstream after a deadly fall, leaving valuable evidence for the BAU team to uncover. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) assists on the case, sniffing out clues of his own from of the victim’s body. Meanwhile, Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) begins a plan of manipulation from within the asylum, set on proving his own innocence. Hannibal is able to put the clues together before the BAU team, arriving at the killer’s silo and helping him to carry out his fascinating, yet deadly tableau…just not in the way the killer intended. Jack (Laurence Fishburne) tries to deal with his guilt over not protecting Will and submits to mandated therapy after Alana Bloom’s (Caroline Dhavernas) scathing report. To Jack’s surprise the counseling turns out to be beneficial. The BAU team independently arrives at the silo, finding a human tapestry of forty-seven bodies patched together, the killer hidden in plain sight. Awaiting his upcoming trial, Will is surprised by an unexpected guest—Bedelia du Maurier (Gillian Anderson)—who gives him a much-needed boost to his psyche.

[SXSW '14] 'Honeymoon' Trailer's Eerie Silence Gets Under Your Skin...

bloody disgusting - Wed, 03/05/2014 - 16:26

World Premiering at the SXSW Film Festival, this trailer strikes a nerve…

The trailer for Leigh Janiak’s Honeymoon has been shared with Bloody Disgusting, and it’s a work of art in itself. What’s so interesting is that it doesn’t really offer any plot details, but uses a lack of music and intense sound design to get under the viewer’s skin. This is seriously a remarkable teaser.

Young newlyweds Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon where the promise of private romance awaits them. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods.

The pic stars Rose Leslie, Harry Treadaway, Ben Huber, and Hanna Brown.

Honeymoon premieres at the Austin-based fest on Friday (March 7) at 11:45pm at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz.

Sleepaway Camp's Jonathan Tiersten Releases Music Video

bloody disgusting - Wed, 03/05/2014 - 16:00

Remember Ricky from Sleepaway Camp? Well, the actor who portrayed him, Jonathan Tiersten, is all grown up and has just released a music video for his track “The Princess”, which was Directed by Mel Haynes, Jr. The song comes from Tiersten’s upcoming album Family.

Haynes Jr on working with Jonathan Tiersten and directing “The Princess”: “We met at JTs house and sat in his kitchen for a while and just talked about a bunch of random things while I played with his dogs. It was a great moment for me because I got to know him better and what a cool guy he was. He was no longer the actor from Sleepaway Camp and other movies and was now someone I felt a friendship with. That completed the image I needed to get the theme of the video. I finally knew the man behind the music, which is what I needed to capture the essence of the video.

Tiersten explains, “When I hear music that moves me I see different colors and images in my mind. Videos seemed to be a dumbing down of the listening experience. I think some good bands may have actually suffered because of the nature of their videos. It made them seem dumb and shallow despite their music being anything but (see Men at Work). So for twenty years I avoided, obfuscated, deterred and detracted. The question became, how do I make a video that doesn’t do all of the things I have heretofore mentioned that I hate about videos?

I instilled the help of my friend Groovey from Groovey.TV. He got me in touch with filmmaker Mel Haynes Jr. We had a week to get it done and I told him all of my concerns. I told him I hated any kind of lip-syncing. We came to a compromise. The video would be representational only in a way that a song is representational. It inspires you to think and come to your own conclusions. In my first foray into this medium (outside of acting) I must say I couldn’t be more pleased. Enjoy!

bloody disgusting - Wed, 03/05/2014 - 15:16

A new poster and stills, along with a full length trailer for the Mike Flanagan-directed (Absentia, Ghosts of Hamilton Street) horror flick Oculus has just hit – and it looks like it has the chance to be pretty damn scary. I’ll be seeing the film and interviewing the filmmakers this week at SXSW but the rest of you don’t have long to wait since Relativity is releasing it nationwide April 11th.

Mike Pereira raved about the film out of the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival. It stars Karen Gillan (Doctor Who, Not Another Happy Ending), Brenton Thwaites (the upcoming Maleficent and The Giver), Rory Cochrane (Argo, Parkland) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, Riddick).

Ten years ago, tragedy struck the Russell family, leaving the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie forever changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents. 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…
