Is 'The Raid 2' One of the Greatest Action Movies Ever? Poster Says So...

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/19/2014 - 09:30

One of the greatest action movies ever is Gareth Evans’ The Raid, which begs the question, is the sequel even better?!

Being released March 28 by Sony Classics, below you’ll find a brand new poster for the film Collider dubs “one of the greatest action movies ever.” Ryan Daley absolutely loved it, so maybe we should be awfully excited, no?

Iko Uwais (The Raid), Julie Estelle (Macabre), Alex Abbad (Merantau), Marsha Timothy (The Forbidden Door), Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, and Cecep Arif Rahman star.

He thought it was over. 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 – rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. 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. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: 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.

Clancy Brown Talks Having Nothing Left to Fear

Dread Central - Wed, 02/19/2014 - 07:00

From the psychopathic, Christopher Lambert-bothering Kurgan in Highlander to tyrannical prison warden Byran Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption through to new recruit-maiming drill sergeant Zim in Starship Troopers, it's safe to say that I am one of the many movie fans who have more than just a handful of favourite Clancy Brown roles.

Brown joins an impressive cast that includes Anne Heche and James Tupper for Nothing Left To Fear, the first horror film to come from former Guns 'N' Roses guitarist Slash's production company 'Slasher Films'. Akin to Seventies horror classics The Wicker Man and Rosemary's Baby, Anthony Leonardi III's debut feature channels fears of the occult, secret societies and the supernatural with a modern twist.

We snapped up the chance to get the first word from Clancy himself on his latest role as the ominous Pastor Kingsman, head of a mysterious Baptist church that seems to have much more influence on the residents of its small home town than you may realise...

Aaron Williams: Which of your roles are you most fond of?

Clancy Brown: That's not a fair question; I like them all! If it's sunny outside, I like one; if it's rainy, I like another. God, which one am I most fond of? I love the Highlander, I love the Kurgan. They're all emblematic of a time in my life. Shawshank was the role I was doing when I got married, so I like that one. I like the role I was doing when my daughter was born, Starship Troopers, so I have great affection for that. I like Pastor Kingsman because he's sort of a next iteration of these preachers I've been playing, which I think is kind of a fascinating theme. I was a prison guard for a while, and now I'm the guy who plays a pastor. It's an interesting phase I'm going through.

AW: What kind of research did your role in Nothing Left to Fear require?

CB: You can over-research it. It didn't require the same kind of research that the pastor I played in "Carnivale" required. What I ended up doing was going around these small town churches in and around Louisiana and listening to sermons, seeing what the messages were, and I've gotta tell you – they were a lot scarier than they were in the movie. Me going around in those little churches was far more frightening than the movie itself!

AW: Scary? How so?

CB: Well, they were very political. Not fire and brimstone, but they were directing their flock a lot. They were telling them what to do, what to think and so forth. In Nothing Left To Fear, the thing that I loved about it was Pastor Kingsman was not that kind of overbearing guy. He was a guy that truly did care about his congregation and had to do certain things to protect them, including sacrifice somebody for their sake. He didn't like the fact that he had to do that. He felt guilty about it. He felt bad. It was like he didn't feel worthy. I don't think he ever feels worthy of the task that is given him. I think that humility is sure lacking these days!

AW: How did you land the role of Pastor Kingsman?

CB: I just played another kind of pastor in a film called Hellbenders with Clifton Collins, Jr. He called me up and said, "I gotta send you this script that my friend Slash is producing. I think you'd be perfect for it!" I really enjoyed the script. I think it hit all the right notes as far as the horror conventions that you had to have, but it also had a much deeper heart, much deeper soul, which all the best horror films really have. They're really about social issues and human choices. I love that and I love putting that in a supernatural setting because you can get away with even harsher messages with tougher morals.

AW: How did production go?

CB: It was a good set! I wish we had more money, I'll tell you that too! If we had more time – because money relates to time – it's not really about money, it's about time. It was a good, fun cast. We did the best we could with the amount of time we had and the resources we had. I think every one of us would do it again. That's more the norm than not in a film. It's always a happy adventure to make a film, I think.

AW: I have to ask – did you get to meet Slash?

CB: Oh, yeah! It was great to meet him! He's an icon. There's only a few [people] I get star struck by. I can say "hi" to Morgan Freeman, then go into the other room to get a drink, but Slash I would stare at so I was a little nervous about him! My son is a big Michael Jackson fan, so I said Slash played guitar for this Michael Jackson tribute thing and I said maybe you can call him up and talk to him! My son had no idea who Slash was except he thought he was Michael Jackson's guitar player. So he had all these questions about Jackson and Slash got this huge kick out of it.

AW: What is your most memorable working experience?

CB: A better question is "What is your most unmemorable one?", but then I couldn't answer it because I wouldn't be able to remember it! There's a lot of good memories. I remember doing Nothing Left To Fear and it was so damn hot where we were in Louisiana during the summer. I did a film after that in the same place in the fall, with Jason Statham. I was talking to Jason and I said, "Aw, man I swore I would never come back here and do another movie because it was so miserably hot and awful when I filmed There's Nothing Left To Fear." And he looks at me and he goes, "You never film here in the summer!" I've done ten films here in the last six months. I did one in the summer and I said I would never do another film in the summer. You do it in the fall, you do it in the winter, you do it in the spring, but you get out of here by June.

AW: Which of your roles do you get remembered for the most?

CB: Depends how old the people are. I've had people come up and say stuff to me about Bad Boys, stuff about Cowboys and Aliens, "Carnivale", Highlander. I'm kind of surprised that people even recognise me from these anymore, I've got so grey and chunky. It depends.

AW: You get cast as the villain a lot. Is this something you've come to embrace?

CB: The villains are the most interesting, aren't they? They're very complex. They're often not really villains. They are often like Pastor Kingsman – they're just doing the best they can in horrible circumstances and forced to do horrible things – or they have a world view that is unconventional and believe that they are justified in what they are doing and they're doing it all for the right reasons. The best villains are always reflections of what's going on in society at that time. If you can tap into that psyche and figure out what that is. In Shawshank, the guy was such an asshole, but the reason that he was an asshole – was that he was an asshole! (laughs) I found a picture of a guy that had a scowl on his face and I think, in the book, Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption, they talk about the fact that Byran Hadley died of stomach cancer. It's like, what kind of guy dies of stomach cancer? What kind of guy is so tied up that he allows that stuff to grow in his gut? What does that turn you into and how long has it been growing there? There's always a reason. You just have to tap into that.

Dread Central would like to extend our deepest thanks to Clancy for taking the time out to speak with us. Nothing Left To Fear is out now on DVD, Blu-ray, On-Demand, and On-Download.

Instrumental progressive metal group Animals As Leaders has released a brand new song entitled “Tooth And Claw”, which comes from their upcoming album The Joy Of Motion (out March 25th via Sumerian Records). The song is, as per AAL norm, a complete mind f*ck in terms of the structure, composition, and technical aspect. Seriously, the amount of skill in 10 seconds of any AAL song is more than most bands use in an entire album. Give it a listen below!

You can travel back in time to watch an exclusive interview we conducted with guitarist Tosin Abasi in 2011 right here.

This Will Put Your 'Silent Hill' Collection To Shame

bloody disgusting - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 20:43

I wish it weren’t true, but I’ve never been much of a collector. I’ve dabbled, but none of my attempts have lasted long enough to result in anything I’d be proud to show off. This particular collection, which consists of all things Silent Hill — from the games to the movies, merchandise, miscellaneous other collectibles, and seemingly everything in-between — took Whitney Chavis, owner of the fan site Silent Hill Historical Society, 14 years to accumulate.

This is by far the most impressive collection dedicated to a single game, Silent Hill or otherwise, that I have ever seen. If you have a collection of your own, prepare to feel a lot less proud of it.

If you’re a collector, feel free to share what you collect in the comments below. Unless it’s human remains — you probably shouldn’t share that. For those of you who would like to know exactly what’s in this collection, you can get details on its contents here.

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

    PlayStation 4 Sales Surpass Sony's 5 Million Target Early

    bloody disgusting - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 18:07

    When the PlayStation 4 launched back in November, Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House set a goal of five million units sold by March 31, 2014. It was ambitious, but it looks as if that target was achieved six weeks ahead of schedule. Today, Sony announced the PS4 has sold 5.3 million units as of February 8th. Last week, the NPD confirmed Sony’s console sold nearly twice as well as the nearest next-gen competitor — the Xbox One — in the United States.

    As we head into March, sales of the PS4 and Xbox One will undoubtedly improve as each console sees the arrival of their next big game. Titanfall is set to drop on Xbox One, as well as PC and Xbox 360, on March 11, and the PS4 exclusive Infamous: Second Son arrives on March 21.

    Marvel & ABC Get REVENGE with new OGN.

    bloody disgusting - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 17:59

    Marvel Entertainment and ABC Studios are proud to announce “Revenge: The Secret Origin of Emily Throne,” an all-new graphic novel inspired by ABC’s popular television series, “Revenge.” This 112-page hardcover hits comic shops and bookstores everywhere on September 3rd, 2014.

    Hit the jump for the full breakdown on the book.

    In “Revenge”, Emily Thorne is a recent addition to the Hamptons social scene – a beautiful, wealthy woman who appears to be nothing more than a good-natured philanthropist. She’s moved next door to the powerful Grayson family, and has begun immersing herself in their world.

    But there is more to this girl than meets the eye.

    Emily Thorne’s real name is Amanda Clarke. At the age of nine, the Graysons and their elite social circle framed Amanda’s father for a horrific crime he didn’t commit. Now, twenty years later, Amanda has returned under an assumed identity to wreak havoc on the lives of those who stole her childhood and betrayed her father.

    REVENGE: THE SECRET ORIGIN OF EMILY THORNE follows Amanda as she sets out on her first mission of revenge. After training in Japan, the untested heroine finds herself infiltrating a high society of excess and intrigue in Geneva, Switzerland. There, she uncovers new secrets about her past while preparing for her future.

    However, it’s a future that will be short-lived unless Amanda can figure out a way to take down a surprising enemy with ties to the same people who destroyed her life.

    REVENGE: THE SECRET ORIGIN OF EMILY THORNE brings together the best creators in the industry including “Revenge” series writer Ted Sullivan, writer Erica Schultz (M3), interior artist Vincenzo Balzano with cover artist Dustin Nguyen (Batman, American Vampire: Lord of Nightmares).

    Emily’s meticulous and vengeful path was not without a learning curve. Writer Erica Schultz says, “This story takes us way back to before Emily had any experience in her ‘takedowns’. She makes mistakes. She learns from some of them, but, as you’ll see, she has a hard time learning some lessons and fans of the show will be pleased to pick up on a few Easter Eggs hidden here and there.”

    “Emily is a comic book character!” exclaims “Revenge” series writer Ted Sullivan. “She has a secret identity. She’s poses as a rich socialite who exacts revenge for a childhood tragedy. Even her famous dark “hoodie” is a type of superhero costume. She has all the classic comic book tropes that make her and her adventures a perfect fit for an original graphic novel with Marvel.”

    With a mix of action, suspense, romance and revelations, REVENGE: THE SECRET ORIGIN OF EMILY THORNE is a thrilling ride into the previously unexplored past of television’s most dynamic – and dangerous – girl next door.

    REVENGE: THE SECRET ORIGIN OF EMILY THORNE will arrive in comic shops and bookstores everywhere on September 3rd, 2014.

    “Revenge” returns with all new episodes Sunday, March 9th at 10 p.m. on The ABC Television Network. “Revenge” stars Emily VanCamp as Amanda Clarke/Emily Thorne, Madeleine Stowe as Victoria Grayson, Gabriel Mann as Nolan Ross, Henry Czerny as Conrad Grayson, Josh Bowman as Daniel Grayson, Nick Weschler as Jack Porter, Christa B. Allen as Charlotte Clarke, and Barry Sloane as Aiden Mathis. “Revenge” is executive-produced by Sunil Nayar, Marty Bowen & Wyck Godfrey and Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts. The series, created by Mike Kelley, is produced by ABC Studios.

    'Nurse 3D' Gets Butt-Naked and Bloody This April

    bloody disgusting - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 17:52

    There's an APP for This Latest Artwork and Trailer

    Dread Central - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 17:48

    The official US artwork and trailer for the innovative smartphone-driven Dutch horror flick APP have arrived, and we have them for you right here! No second screen needed! Check out the goods, and look for more on this one soon!

    From the Press Release
    RAM Releasing, the genre shingle under New York-based distributor Film Movement, today premieres the US theatrical poster and trailer for the label’s first theatrical release since its launch in late 2013, APP.

    A film by Bobby Boermans, it’s the first film made with the intentional inclusion of content on a second, mobile screen. The accompanying app, IRIS, is equipped with sonic technology that triggers additional content during the movie – off-screen text messages between characters, an alternative angle in a scene, and more. Though not required for viewing (and enjoying!) the action-packed APP, the intentional use of the second screen makes it a groundbreaking achievement in the continuing convergence of film and technology.

    Anna lives with her best friend Sophie and balances psychology classes with supporting her brother and his recovery following a traumatic motorcycle accident. She’s never far from her cellphone, and after a night of partying in the dorms, Anna wakes up groggy and hungover, only to find that a new app has been inexplicably added to it.

    Initially helpful and clever, IRIS soon begins behaving mysteriously, answering personal questions it shouldn’t know the answers to and sending inappropriate images to her contacts. When it becomes clear she can’t simply delete the unwanted, evil app, Anna’s efforts to confront it will set in motion a fearful series of events that will put her life, and that of her roommate and her fragile brother, in fatal danger.

    APP, RAM Releasing’s first major release in a year packed with equally impressive genre titles slated for theatrical, digital, and home video distribution, opens in theaters May 9; it will be available day-and-date on all major digital platforms, including iTunes, Amazon Instant, and Cable VOD. The IRIS app – text IRIS to 97-000 to download for iPhone and Android – works in any viewing environment, from multiplex to living room. The app also includes exclusive character bios and film stills.

    “RAM Releasing was created to push boundaries,” VP of Distribution Rebeca Conget said. “APP challenges the bad name cellphones have gotten in movie theaters and does it in an entirely ingenious way. Boermans’ film will have you rethinking how you watch movies.”

    Ashley Wood at T.P. Louise fight "The Beautiful War" at IDW

    bloody disgusting - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 17:41

    The creative team behind the critically acclaimed “Lore” are returning to IDW this year to launch an all new series called “The Beautiful War.” The series is an all new bi-monthly creator owned work. Anticipation should be high for this one. Hit the jump to take a look at the full press release from IDW.

    2014 marks both IDW Publishing’s 15th anniversary and the return of one its most integral and beloved creators, Ashley Wood (Popbot, World War Robot). This May, Wood and writer T.P. Louise, his co-conspirator on Lore (now in development as a major motion picture), launch an all-new, ongoing bi-monthly series, The Beautiful War.

    Wood and Louise weave The Beautiful War around an industrialist, Audel Howard, who when he lets a green fairy out of the bottle, makes a deal that no mere mortal man can refuse. Wine, women, song, and a large backyard extension called America are now coming his way.

    “Any Ashley Wood book is an event that excites all of us at IDW,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief and Wood’s co-creator on Zombies vs Robots, in development at Sony Pictures. “And T.P. Louise, who crafted such an epic tale in Lore, is back to do the same thing here.”

    The Beautiful War is one of many new Ashley Wood projects headed to shops in 2014. Launching a month later is June’s Adventure Kartel, a massively oversize artbook that features comic-book stories, concept designs, and artwork, with more on the way.

    “T.P. and I are happy to be back making comics at IDW!” says Wood.

    bloody disgusting - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 17:38

    This brand new episode in our Alan Wake playthrough brings us to the penultimate episode in the game. It took us a while to reach, but we’ve made it to the home stretch.

    Today, David and I chat about the wonders of bow ties, Attack on Titan, and Cthulhu. This is also the episode where I watch in horror as Barry gets stabbed, David makes an unforgivable joke, and we both wonder what kind of person pays for a gym membership when that money would be much better spent on video games.

    Victor Salva Opens His Dark House Next Month

    Dread Central - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 17:37

    Formerly titled Haunted, Victor Salva's Dark House is set to open up its creaky doors in less than a month, and a very familiar face will be found on the other side. Step inside for full details!

    From the Press Release
    The horror-suspense feature Dark House, starring the iconic Tobin Bell (Saw), begins its day-and-date roll-out in March.

    On March 11 Cinedigm launches the film in North America across cable, VOD, Blu-ray Disc, and DVD. Paladin will release the movie in New York and Los Angeles on March 14 with additional markets to follow.

    Dark House, which follows the terrifying road trip of a young man in search of his dark past, is the freshman effort of LA-based Charles Agron Productions. The company, which expects to announce an international distribution deal in coming days, is also in early stages of pre-production on a second horror title, Monday at 11:01 AM.

    Dark House is directed by Victor Salva, a genre favorite whose two Jeepers Creepers films broke box office records and are seminal in the horror canon. Salva co-wrote the script with producer Charles Agron, based on a story by Agron.

    Headlining the cast is Tobin Bell. His portrayal of Jigsaw in the Saw franchise was called “brilliant and formidable” by the BBC and made him one of “the most acclaimed names in the world of horror” according to Bloody Disgusting. Up-and-coming young actor Luke Kleintank (“Pretty Little Liars,” 1000 to 1) stars along with Alex McKenna (“Crossing Jordan”, “Dallas”), Zack Ward (Postal), and multiple award-winner Lesley-Anne Down (“Upstairs/Downstairs”).

    Says Charles Agron, President of Charles Agron Productions, “It is so gratifying to see this film--which I first sat down to write four years ago--wind up with an iconic director and star, an ensemble of very exciting young actors, and a pair of distributors with deep experience in horror to bring Dark House to audiences.” In addition to producing the film and co-writing with Salva, Agron plays a lead role.

    Dark House is a thrilling and horrifying road trip, full of twists and brutal surprises--a suspenseful thriller about a young man and a chilling old house that has survived decades, awaiting the return of its prodigal son… a house that can escalate Nick’s gift to see death before it happens but holds within its walls the origins of a dark family legacy so horrible it may have already reached out to Nick’s unborn child.

    When Nick Di Santo learns that his father is not only alive but can possibly reveal the origin of his son's dark gift, he sets out on a trip that takes him to an abandoned mansion he thought only existed in his childhood imagination.

    Toy Fair 2014: NECA Acquires License for Ripley

    Dread Central - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 17:13

    Today is a good day to be a fan of the Alien franchise. NECA Toys, the company responsible for much plastic-based Alien-themed badassery, has just made the announcement we as fans have been waiting for...

    As part of the 35th anniversary celebration of the groundbreaking Alien, NECA will release the first-ever action figures of main character Ellen Ripley that feature the likeness and approval of actress Sigourney Weaver, who was nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe for Aliens in 1987!

    Initial plans include a figure of Ripley in her Nostromo jumpsuit from the original 1979 film, to be followed later by a Ripley figure based on the 1986 movie Aliens, directed by James Cameron.

    Prototypes will debut later this summer at San Diego Comic-Con!

    The celebration will continue through the year, with a special 35th Anniversary figure appearing in each series of Alien 7″ action figures. Visitors to the booth got a rare peek at Series 3, scheduled for July; Series 4 is slated for autumn.

    NECA also revealed a spectacular summer treat for fans: two Deluxe 35th Anniversary releases, both completely in scale with the main action figure line. The massive “Alien Queen Ultra Deluxe Boxed Action Figure” will arrive in July, shortly before the release of the iconic “Power Loader” exoskeleton, which is famously used by Lt. Ripley to battle the Alien Queen in one of the most thrilling scenes in the 1987 movie.

    Word is out, we've got her & you're getting multiple figures. #tf14

    There Be Monsters In This New Trailer For 'The Order: 1886'

    bloody disgusting - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 16:59

    Revealed at E3 last June, The Order: 1886 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive that aims to take us on a trip back in time to a 19th century London set in a reality that’s brimming with humans who can transform into monsters and an ancient order of warriors who combat them.

    It’s also strictly a single-player affair, so developer Ready At Dawn won’t need to split their focus on a multiplayer component. Read on for the trailer!

    The Order: 1886 is slated to release later this year on the PlayStation 4.

    Brazilian Horrors Await in When I Was Alive (Quando Eu Era Vivo)

    Dread Central - Tue, 02/18/2014 - 16:59

    From the land of Coffin Joe comes Marco Dutra's When I Was Alive (Quando Eu Era Vivo), which promises horrors much more nightmare-inducing than a painful Brazilian wax. Check out the trailer for the flick, which is based on a novel by Lourenço Mutarelli!

    The film stars Marat Descartes, Antonio Fagundes, and Sandy Leah.

    Junior is back to live with his family after he loses his job and gets separated from his wife. Upon arriving in the house that once was his home, he feels like a stranger and spends his days on the couch of the old Senior, brooding over the separation and his unemployment and dreaming of the young tenant, Bruna. After finding a few objects that belonged to his mother, Junior begins to want to know all about the history of the family and develops a strange obsession with the past, confusing delusion and reality.
