Now THIS Is What A True Horror Fighting Game Would Look Like!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/21/2015 - 15:16

Let’s be honest, if there were a real mass manufactured fighting game where the characters were iconic horror villains, we’d all be playing it pretty much nonstop. I have a feeling that BD could host tournaments and the vast majority of our readers would be kicking ass left and right. Unfortunately, no such mainstream game exists, due to the licensing nightmare it would take to orchestrate such a title.

However, that can’t stop us from dreaming, right? And that’s precisely what the fine folk over at ScrollBoss have done, creating a badass print that is available to order right now. The print shows a character select screen for a fighting game and Player 1 has picked Freddy while Player 2 has chosen Jason. Other “playable” characters include Candyman, Tarman, The Tall Man, Pinhead, Chucky, Ash, and more.

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/21/2015 - 15:00

331Erock, the YouTube guitarist known for his bombastic metal covers of popular songs and themes, has released a cover of Alan Silvestri‘s theme for The Avengers. The best part of the whole video comes at the bridge, when four different guitars all harmonize with one another. It’s very Dragonforce-esque but definitely warrants a few minutes of your time.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron comes out in theaters next Friday.

Stan Winston School of Character Arts shared a gem from their archives, posted back in 2010.

What you’ll see below is an early Pumpkinhead movement test. In it, “Tom Woodruff, Jr. rehearses in a very rough, unpainted Pumpkinhead suit while his SWS cohorts puppeteer the tail with external marionette wires,” they explain. “Notice the holes in the neck that allow Tom to see.”

Stan Winston directed the 1988 film that starred Lance Henricksen as a man who conjures up a gigantic vengeance demon called Pumpkinhead to destroy the teenagers who accidentally killed his son.

“Preacher” Will Have a Terrifying Slaughterhouse Owner In Elizabeth Perkins!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/21/2015 - 11:58

“Weeds” alumna Elizabeth Perkins is set for a co-starring role opposite Dominic Cooper in AMC drama pilot “Preacher”, based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult 1990s comic, says Deadline.

Perkins plays Vyla Quinncannon, a genteel but formidable businesswoman who owns the local slaughterhouse in Annville. Ambitious, strong-willed and terrifying, Vyla shares a past with Jesse’s father which gives her a singular hold over Jesse.

Cooper will play Custer, a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says.

Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God.

“True Blood” alumna Lucy Griffiths will play Emily, a no-nonsense single mother of three, a waitress, the church organist, bookkeeper, and Jesse’s loyal right hand.

Ian Colletti was also recently cast as Eugene Root, aka Arseface.

Rogen and Evan Goldberg are behind the forthcoming pilot based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s masterful cult 1990s comic, which blows away “The Walking Dead” in every way possible.

[TV Review] “Salem” Episode 2.03: ‘From Within’

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/21/2015 - 10:50

This week on Salem, we had more table-setting as Mary had to deal with sexism in the workplace, Alden continued his plot to destroy all the witches in Salem and Mercy moved forward in her plan to destroy Mary. Oh, and the Countess performed a blood kiss on Mary as well. There weren’t a lot of stand-out moments in “From Within,” but like last week’s episode, it set the stage for some interesting things to occur in future episodes. 

Much of “From Within” was spent with Mary, and boy did she have a lot to deal with this week. That pesky Mr. Hawthorne is proving to be a real thorn in her side (you don’t even know how dead you are, sir), but the one good thing that came out of his disagreeable presence is that we actually had a suspenseful scene involving George! Since Hawthorne wants to usurp George as town magistrate, Mary has to let George speak (without giving her up as a witch) and name a replacement for him.

The dinner scene was easily the highlight of the episode, as George could have easily given Mary up as a witch. It was nice to finally see Michael Mulheren get to do something besides look stressed out in a wheelchair. The banter between him and Mary as they made a deal was also very entertaining.

Anyway, Mary’s idea for George’s replacement turns out to be Mr. Corwin, another witch who is easily kidnapped by a Roland Deschain-y John Alden. I admit, I’ve been harping on how boring Alden’s story has been in the previous episodes, but since this episode had Alden directly involved with Mary (without her knowing it), he became immediately more interesting. The fact thathe might actually be a worthy opponent for her is what makes him more interesting. That was the problem with Increase Mather last season: as villainous as he was, it was always obvious he wouldn’t be able to actually overthrow the witches. This isn’t the case with Countess Marburg or, now, John Alden.

Speaking of Marburg, the opening tag with the little girl in the well turns out to be all part of her plan to plant the blood kiss on Mary. It seemed like a “scenic route” plan, as I doubt it would have taken all that effort to perform the blood kiss (based on my extensive knowledge of blood kiss rituals), but I’ll let it slide…this week. Y’all know how I feel about Ms. Lawless.

What isn’t really working is this forced lust Dr. Wainwright has for Mary. After a weird scene where he choked Mary to make her feel closer to death, he got turned on by it 50 Shades of Grey-style and proceeded to make out with her. The writers might feel it necessary to shoehorn in a romance(?) subplot (hopefully one that will not eventually turn into a love triangle with Alden because, ugh), but it’s not needed here. Salem already has so much going on, that a doctor with a BDSM fetish just seems tacked on.

Finally, we have Mercy, who is slowly recovering from her burn wounds inflicted by the townsfolk last week. It was pretty humorous to discover that her father (who used to molest her) has now been turned into her slave via bird penis witchcraft (ha), but unfortunately this led to Isaac’s death. Isaac, who can easily be called the only “good” character on the show, will be dearly missed, though my guess is that he will be resurrected sooner or later.

Overall this was another solid episode of Salem, but it was a lot more setup this week that will ideally lead to more bombastic episodes in the future. Once more storylines start converging, Salem will be all the better for it.

Random Notes

  • Anne and Cotton are on their way back to Salem when their carriage gets hijacked, then Anne kills them all using her witch powers. It felt like a bit of wheel-spinning but I guess we needed to check in on them somehow this week.
  • Mary’s son has been killing birds. So there’s that.
  • “Life with him has been both a pain and a constant temptation to Hell.” Definitely stealing this one for my future insults.
  • More frog on thigh-nipple action! I’ve been missing that in my life.
  • “George if those tepid men saw me for what I truly am they would soil themselves in fear.” -At least Mary is aware that her reflection looks like a hell beast.
  • “You will be reunited with the shriveled remnants of your manhood when you fulfill every errand I demand.” -I like this side of Mercy.
  • “Your vigor for the peace and prosperity of Salem is an inspiration.” -You have to actually hear Montgomery’s delivery of this to understand how funny it was. It was very Mean Girls “I love that skirt. Where did you get it?” and it was awesome.
  • “I am not your enemy…but make me one and you shall feel my fury.” -Hawthorne is clearly going to die by season’s end, but I can’t wait to see more of his verbal throw-downs with Mary.
  • Countess Marburg sure does like bathtubs doesn’t she? Every scene she’s been in as featured one.

We love Yam Laranas here on Bloody Disgusting.

The Filipino director quietly makes his indie films – like Sigaw and The Road – before sneakily announcing them.

This morning he sent us both the trailer and one-sheet for his next genre mystery, Abomination, which looks like yet another mind-bending supernatural horror film.

“Abomination follows a young woman who is found unconscious in a city street and claims to be another person who was brutally murdered two months earlier. She escapes from a psychiatric hospital in order to prove her identity and find the truth about her life, her death and her murderer.

‘Dark Star: H.R. Giger’s World’ Theatrical Dates!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/21/2015 - 10:20

Giger’s World, a new documentary about the internationally acclaimed and controversial painter, sculptor, architect, designer, Oscar winner and Alien creator, will open at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema in New York, Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles, Opera Plaza Cinemas in San Francisco, and Shattuck Cinemas in Berkeley starting on May 15, 2015.

The doc hopes to learn, who is the artist HR Giger? What kind of person is behind such terrifying and disturbing yet aesthetic forms and beings?

What’s so special about this new film is that it features actual interview with the man himself, who we lost this past May.

This could be his final words ever caught on film…

Opening theatrically in the U.S. and Canada in over 30 cities:

May 15-21 – New York, NY – Landmark Sunshine
May 15-21 – Los Angeles, CA – Landmark NuArt
May 15-21 – San Francisco, CA – Landmark Opera Plaza

View additional theatrical dates here

Surrealist artist H. R. Giger (1940-2014) terrified audiences with his Oscar-winning monsters in Ridley Scott’s ALIEN. Sci-fi, horror, music, album covers, tattoos and fetish art have been influenced by his dark, intricate paintings and sculptures depicting birth, death and sex.

Both a mesmerizing introduction to Giger’s oeuvre and a must-see for Giger devotees, Belinda Sallin’s definitive documentary DARK STAR: H. R. GIGER’S WORLD shares the intimate last years of the artist’s life and reveals how deeply he resided within his own artistic visions.

Behind the shuttered windows and ivy-covered walls of his residence in Zurich, Switzerland, DARK STAR brings viewers into Giger’s mysterious realm: from the first skull he was given by his father at the age of six, to macabre dinner parties with his close-knit team, to the grisly souvenirs from his time spent on the ALIEN set and reminiscences about model Li Tobler, Giger’s one-time muse, whose suicide reverberates throughout his work.

The film also addresses Giger’s complex relationship to the art world, where he defied traditional categories and embraced commercial projects for musicians including Debbie Harry, Korn, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and the Dead Kennedys. Fittingly enshrined in a museum dedicated to his work, Giger’s output includes sculpture, painting, drawing, film and architecture, integrating meticulous technique with a instantly-recognizable sensibility that has inspired generations of nightmares.

Scooby-Doo Meets…KISS?

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/21/2015 - 10:13

Scooby-Doo is one of those TV shows that can very easily get a kid interested in horror. It’s a mystery series that always features some sort of scary monster causing chaos and mischief, only for the mystery solving quintet of Shaggy, Scooby, Daphne, Fred, and Velma to find out that there’s really some person behind the visage. It’s great for parents because it helps teach their kids that monsters aren’t real, that there’s always something else to explain things. However, it also teaches that the real monsters are people. You win some, you lose some.

Now, Scooby and the gang are heading to the KISS theme park to investigate a series of strange hauntings at the hands of the “Crimson Witch”.

The full synopsis reads:

Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. Gang team up with the one and only KISS in this all-new, out-of-this-world adventure! We join the Gang at KISS World – the all-things-Kiss theme park, as they investigate a series of strange hauntings. With help from KISS, they discover that the Crimson Witch has returned to summon The Destroyer from the alternate dimension of Kissteria! The evil duos ghastly plan, to destroy the earth! Can the Gang’s cunning and KISS’s power of rock save the day?! Tune in to this Rock and Roll Mystery for some thunderous, heavy FUN!

[Tribeca '15 Review] ‘Applesauce’ Is a Morbidly Hilarious Comedy

bloody disgusting - Tue, 04/21/2015 - 10:01

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done? This razor-edged question is the catalyst for a whole lot of horrible things in mad genius Onur Turkel’s new film Applesauce. Last year Turkel’s sardonic vampire film Summer of Blood was a hit and now he’s outdone himself with a morbidly comedic look at the repercussions of infidelity and sins of the past. Through Turkel’s lens these grim issues are presented in a wicked hilarious manner, with the filmmaker’s awkward, literate, “I can’t believe he said that” humor relentlessly attacking the viewer.

Turkel stars as Ron, a high school teacher who presses his students to think about the ethical repercussions of war and to consider its alternatives. These are high school kids though so he’s met with little respect. Him and his wife Nicki (Trieste Kelly Dunn) seem to live a fairly normal existence alongside their best friends Les (Max Casella) and Emmy (Emmy Harrington). One night over dinner, Ron talks about the worst thing he’s ever done. It happened where I’m sure a lot of “worst things” happen, at a frat party.

What Ron reveals was a complete accident, but gruesome nonetheless. His confession sets off a chain of adverse events for the four main characters, as they each then become curious as to the horrible things their spouses did in the past. Provoking one another sends them on a downward spiral that shakes the foundations of their relationships and for Ron, his sanity. Shortly after he confesses, someone starts sending him severed body parts. Ron becomes suspicious of everyone, from his best friends to his students.

A lot of the conflict comes from Ron’s distrust of Les as the two men exchange some gut-busting verbal jabs (and equally hilarious fake-out punches). While a lot of the humor in Summer of Blood came from Turkel’s self-deprecation, his character Ron is more secure in himself. His cockiness this time doesn’t seem as dickheaded. He’s still a sarcastic S.O.B., sure, but way more tolerable of a human being. He is a teacher of conflict resolution, after all. Watching him try to uncomfortably resolve his conflicts with everyone around him would suggest otherwise. It’s a great character dichotomy and Turkel nails it.

When Ron does get to the bottom of who’s sending him body parts (it starts with the most innocent part you can think of and then builds up to, you know), it’s not this big “oh shit” twist. I love that about the film. Where the “reveal” might be treated as a giant hook in another film, Turkel’s conclusion is more organic and commonsense. “Oh, this is the guy behind it? Okay, let’s talk about it.” It’s a very satisfying end.

I should mention that the great character actor Dylan Baker (Trick ‘r Treat, Happiness) has a small role as radio host Stevie Bricks, the man who asks his listeners every Tuesday night about the worst thing they’ve ever done. At first Stevie seems like a background character, but Turkel ties him in wickedly later on.

Applesauce is a wholly singular riot that’s equal parts horror-relationship drama-comedy-mystery about people trying to get their shit together in the face of brutal honesty, betrayal, and detached body parts. It’s certainly not the bloodbath that Summer of Blood is, no. But it’s sure to satisfy anyone with a morbid and suspicious view of the world. Or anyone who likes, you know, laughing.

Applesauce just had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Dark Sky Films already bought the sucker so we’ll keep you updated on an official release.

‘Conjuring’ Team Reunite For ‘The Entity’ Remake!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 04/20/2015 - 18:31

One of the most terrifying horror films of all time is back on the remake block.

The 1983 horror movie The Entity, about a woman who is tormented and sexually molested by an invisible demon, is getting the remake treatment from the creative team behind The Conjuring, says Heat Vision.

James Wan – best known for directing Saw, Dead Silence, The Conjuring, Insidious and even Fast 7 – will produce the remake with brothers Chad and Carey Hayes on board to pen the script. Roy Lee (The Ring, Godzilla, The Grudge, Poltergeist) will produce Entity with Wan.

Entity purportedly told the true story of Carla Moran, a single mom who was abused physically and sexually by a supernatural demon.

Barbara Hershey played Moran while Ron Silver played a doctor who believes the woman is actually abusing herself and experiencing delusions brought about by a troubled past. Also figuring into the proceedings was a young son, a boyfriend, and two parapsychologists.

Fox Atomic was once attached to release the remake that had Hideo Nakata (Ringu, The Ring Two) lined up to direct (May 30, 2007).
