“The X-Files” Images Crash Land With Huge Secrets!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/28/2015 - 15:35

We’re a mere weeks away from the return of “The X-Files,” and with it comes huge spoilers.

The first batch of images from Episoded 10.01, ‘My Struggle,’ have come crash landing into Bloody Disgusting. They carry huge spoilers. While there’s no context behind the pics, you’ll learn very quickly that the new season opens with a UFO crash and a trip back to Area 51.

The new 6-episode event, returning Sunday, January 24th on FOX, reopens the X-Files, while focusing on the “ultimate” conspiracy theory. It’s actually pretty frightening how believable it is, and this new promo really hones in on what they’re trying to do with the new season.

The first of the two-night season premiere begins with Episode 10.01, ‘My Struggle’:

Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of the thrilling series THE X-FILES has arrived.

FOX MULDER (David Duchovny) and DANA SCULLY (Gillian Anderson) have been contacted by TAD O’MALLEY (guest star Joel McHale), a popular conspiracy theorist web-TV show host who believes he has uncovered a significant government conspiracy. With the assistance of FBI Asst. Dir. WALTER SKINNER (Mitch Pileggi), O’Malley seeks to enlist the help of former X-Files agents Mulder and Scully, who have since severed ties with the FBI. Through O’Malley they are introduced to SVETA (guest star Annett Mahendru), a possible alien abductee who shares shocking information with them that will challenge everything that Mulder has ever believed about the existence of aliens and the government’s role in covering them up.

‘Phantom of the Paradise’ Doc Delivers Teaser and Invites You to Rock

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/28/2015 - 11:10

The genre world has been spoilt for choice of late with excellent documentaries helping us discover more about the movies we love.  From finding out about Richard Stanley invading his own “Island of Dr. Moreau” in Lost Soul to what could have been without Sting in winged underwear from Jodorowsky’s Dune.  Next up to get this under the skin treatment is Phantom of The Paradise

Take a look at an early teaser below and learn how you can be part of the exploration process on Indiegogo.

On release, the film landed with a mighty thud and quickly disappeared back from whence it came…

… this would be where the story ended if it weren’t for the brave denizens of the small and frigid Canadian city of Winnipeg who didn’t get the memo. Instead local kids (shockingly between the ages of 9-13) turned the film into an enduring phenomenon with local box office grosses larger than the studio blockbuster Jaws.

These little Winnipegers did this by buying up thousands upon thousands of tickets, sending the soundtrack up the charts and even flying in Williams for a concert where he was treated like a member of the Beatles by the mobs of teens assembled. An entire generation of kids grew up on The Phantom of the Paradise and they continue to keep the cult around the film alive today with sold out screenings and events still happening in Winnipeg to this day.

Phantom of Winnipeg tells the story of the unique fan community that sprung up around the film and the people whose rock and roll obsessions are still going strong decades later. This documentary will be an exploration of an outsider community and the very DNA of fan culture itself told via the true life stories of those fateful Winnipeg kids who just got it, the cast and creative team behind the original film who saw it all go down first-hand and the famous artists who swear that Winnipeg  was definitely on to something.

About the filmmakers:

Award-winning Sundance/SXSW/AFI Docs alumni documentary director/producer Malcolm Ingram, the man with behind such hits as Small Town Gay Bar, Continental, Bear Nation, and Out To Win. He is also known to some as the golden-voiced former host of SModcast’s Blow Hard podcast.

Joining him on this track is his motley crew of unwashed rock and roll confidants including Matt Thomas (Producer), Sean Stanley (Editor) and Doug Carlson (an original Winnipeg Phantom fan and Consulting Producer).

Take a Turkish Bus to Hell With ‘Baskin’ and Hammer Man

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/28/2015 - 11:07

After Baskin evolved from a short film to feature length it proved it had legs, but now it’s got wheels?!  After tormenting the North American festival circuit since Toronto, the police filled Pandora’s Box of a flick is heading home to Turkey with a January 1st release date.  As part of the advertising awareness drive, buses have been spotted with sledge hammer smashes adorning the rear window.

It doesn’t stop there.  The owner of said mallet has also been spotted wandering the streets interrupting interviews & spreading the dark word of the debut feature from Can Evrenol.  How would you react if confronted by a garbage bag head wrapped macho gimp on the sidewalk?  Watch the weirdness unfold from around the 1-minute mark.

After the native New Year’s day release & simultaneous German theatre dates (the next largest home to Turks) the US can expect to get the film from IFC Midnight in the first quarter of 2016.  Read Mr Disgusting’s review here & take a look at some of the homegrown teases for Baskin below.

Trace Picks the Year’s 10 Best Horror Movie Posters!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/28/2015 - 10:46

Mr. Disgusting’s Top 10 Horror Films | 10 More Must-See Horror Films of 2015! | Adam’s Top 5 Horror Games | Jess’ Top 5 Horror FIlms | Chris’ Best Blu-ray Releases | Chris’ Best Double Features Blu-rays | Trace’s Top 5 Horror Films | Jon’s 5 Best Horror Soundtracks | Jon’s Top 10 Albums | 10 Most Disturbing Moments | 10 Best Horror Movie Posters | 10 Worst Horror Movie Posters | 10 Best Trailers | 10 Worst Trailers | 10 Most Surprising Horror Movies | 10 Most Disappointing Horror Movies | Jorge Solis’ 10 Scariest Comic Books

A poster is the best marketing tool for a film outside of its trailer. I used to get to the movie theater 45 minutes early so I would have time to walk the halls and look at all of the posters for the coming attractions. There’s just something so fun about looking at posters and horror films arguably have the best ones. This year saw some particularly creative posters get released, so I’ve put together a list of some of my favorites. With that being said, here are (in no particular order) 10 of the best posters for horror films released this year!*

*Keep in mind that this is a judgment on the poster only. The quality of the movie has nothing to do with the posters included on this list.

Backcountry (IFC Films)

While this poster is slightly misleading in that it makes the entire movie look like it’s about a killer bear (the bear doesn’t make its first and only attack until the last 20 minutes of the film), the imagery on display here is great. Seeing Missy Peregrym (Stick It) hang on for dear life while the bear roars overhead is harrowing. The simple tagline of “Survive” is an excellent example of a minimalist style working wonders.

‘Deathgasm’ Has the Most NSFW Poster Ever

bloody disgusting - Sun, 12/27/2015 - 19:38

A conceptual poster for the heavy metal horror film Deathgasm has been released and shows what they were aiming for but couldn’t release due to censors.

Let’s just say that those who advocate for equality between male and female nudity in film will appreciate what this poster has to offer. After all, the flaccid design of the official poster is thrust out of place, the new poster standing erect and firm while sending throbbing waves of metal energy into the universal womb. Penis.

Deathgasm is being hailed by many as one of the best horror films of the year. It landed at #5 on Mr. Disgusting’s Top 10 Horror Films of 2015! and the soundtrack appeared on my own Top 5 Horror Soundtracks of 2015.

You can check out the poster below.


Actual poster concept for DEATHGASM. Still scratching my head as to why it didn't make it past censorship boards. pic.twitter.com/TedI2CSer3

What are Your New Years Horror Resolutions?

bloody disgusting - Sun, 12/27/2015 - 16:18

Now that the merry holidays are over, we have one last major event in 2015 to look forward to: New Years Eve! It’s a night to reflect on a year ending and to also celebrate the start of a new year, a new opportunity to make things change, to better ourselves, our careers, those around us, etc…

As with every year, there are promises that we make to ourselves that we end up not keeping, which kinda sucks and makes us feel a bit guilty. I know that I’m absolutely guilty of not following through on my resolutions, although I’ll be honest and say that I rarely make any these past few years. Better to not promise anything so as to not disappoint myself, right?

Well, you know what? Fuck that. I’m going to make some promises because I do want to change! I do want to change who I am in regards to many things. But for this occasion I’m going to talk about several resolutions I’m going to make when it comes to horror.

Check out mine and then let me know what some of yours are!

1. Be more critical

I know this might seem like a strange one but as I’m getting older I realize that I want better from the movies I watch. Sure I can turn off my brain for certain titles (I’m looking at you, TMNT 2) but if I’m intent on seeing a film that wants to be effective, I’m going to expect that from it. And horror does not get a pass in this regard.

Some of the very best horror movies that are widely discussed and revered are the ones that have substance, they have weight, they have gravity, and they have a certain unnameable feature that gives them a majestic quality that makes them lurk in your mind for days, weeks, months, and even possibly years after being viewed.

I want to watch horror movies that are smartly written. I want to see horror films that scare me and leave that fear lingering. I want to be able to discuss a horror film in regards to the societal and cultural themes it tackles and not just say, “It had great gore! And, WOW! Did you see those tits?” C’mon, we’re better than that.

I want horror to mean something to me. I want it to blow me away like so many films used to do. And that’s why I’m going to be critical. Because filmmakers won’t know that people like myself want this films unless they actually read it or see my frustrations. And I think it’s fair to push creators into uncomfortable places so that they do something that’s better than anything they’ve previously done and continue on that path of greatness. At least, here’s hoping that’s what happens.

2. Watch more horror movies, specifically in theaters

This one might seem strange but I honestly don’t get out of my place much. I work from home, which makes it very easy to get comfortable just sitting for hours at a time.

But no more. In 2016, I vow to see at least 10 horror movies in theaters, providing that at least 10 horror movies are released in theaters close to me (which is almost a 100% certainty). There’s something magical about going to a movie theater and seeing a film on a gigantic screen with a (hopefully) great sound system. That experience simply cannot be recreated at home (unless you live in a mansion), so I should be taking full advantage of it.

Furthermore, I want to watch at least one horror movie a week on top of those theater trips. That means I want to watch at least 62 horror movies in 2016, which I feel is a fair number. I probably watched that many in 2015 without realizing it, so I’m good with this arrangement.

My recommendation to keep me on track (if you want to help) is to bug me constantly on Twitter so that you know I’m keeping good on my promises.

3. Bring awesome horror content to BD

I don’t know if you readers realize it but a huge portion of my life revolves around each and every one of you. I constantly am thinking if something matches your needs and wants after keeping an eye on what you love to read. I’m always brainstorming ideas for new kinds of content and how to make it happen. Implementation is a bitch, I tells ya.

But I have a sneaking suspicion that 2016 will see some new and awesome means of bringing you great news, original content, and other fun events and I can only hope that you all enjoy it.

And with that, I want to end this piece by getting a little personal and saying thank you to each and every one of you readers. 2015 was a huge year for Bloody-Disgusting and 2016 is shaping up to be even better. I mean, it’s our 15th anniversary, so you better believe we’re excited and have plans to celebrate everything!

Happy New Year to all and, from the bottom or our horror-fueled hearts, thank you for everything.

Trace Picks Horror’s 10 Most Disturbing Moments of the Year!

bloody disgusting - Sun, 12/27/2015 - 12:19

Mr. Disgusting’s Top 10 Horror Films | 10 More Must-See Horror Films of 2015! | Adam’s Top 5 Horror Games | Jess’ Top 5 Horror FIlms | Chris’ Best Blu-ray Releases | Chris’ Best Double Features Blu-rays | Trace’s Top 5 Horror Films | Jon’s 5 Best Horror Soundtracks | Jon’s Top 10 Albums | 10 Most Disturbing Moments | 10 Best Horror Movie Posters | 10 Worst Horror Movie Posters | 10 Best Trailers | 10 Worst Trailers | 10 Most Surprising Horror Movies | 10 Most Disappointing Horror Movies | Jorge Solis’ 10 Scariest Comic Books

2015 has seen movies released that may not have been of the best quality, but damn did they know how to gross us out. There have been plenty of movies to see release that feature some of the most disturbing scenes audiences have seen in a long time. Many of these involve gore, but some rely on just visceral imagery and tension to disturb. Out of the roughly 70 genre films I’ve seen this year, these are the 10 most disturbing moments I’ve seen this year.*

*For the sake of not letting readers feel left out, I opted not to include films that only screened at festivals this year. Those will all go on my 2016 lists (should they actually get a release in 2016). Also, I was not able to see every genre film that came out this year, but I did see most of them. For a list of what films were considered for this list, take a look at everything I watched here.

***NSFW AND MAJOR SPOILERS FOR ALL FILMS LISTED BELOW***

Penis Split – I Spit On Your Grave III: Vengeance is Mine

I Spit on Your Grave III features what is probably the most graphic scene in the entire franchise. That’s saying something for a franchise that includes scenes where a man’s testicles are squeezed out of his scrotum and another where a man is raped in the ass with a shotgun. In this scene, Jennifer (Sarah Butler, who returns to the franchise after sitting out the second installment) is forced to perform fellatio on a man, so she does what any woman would do: split his penis in half with a knife and pull it apart. Ouch.

This Was a Weird Year for ‘Silent Hill’

bloody disgusting - Sun, 12/27/2015 - 10:00

2015 was a mostly good year. It left us with some fun games to play and more to look forward to in 2016 and beyond. It knew exactly what we wanted — more zombie games — and that’s what it gave us. H1Z1 came first, followed by the Resident Evil remaster, Dying Light, the Zombie Army Trilogy and Resident Evil Revelations 2. By April, we were smitten.

And that’s when it made its move.

In the final week of April, news broke that Silent Hills might be cancelled. It seemed impossible. Why would Konami destroy the series’ final chance to be relevant again? Why would any company go against their best interests by throwing away a game that would’ve combined the talents of director Guillermo del Toro, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, horror manga artist Junji Ito, and “The Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus.

It was a bewildering move that I’ve spent more than enough time complaining about. It sucks, but Silent Hills wasn’t the first horror game to get cancelled, and it certainly won’t be the last.

The point of no return came when Konami set fire to every single thing that had any relation to Hideo Kojima. All mentions of him suddenly vanished from the promotional materials for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Kojima Productions was forcefully disbanded and P.T. was removed from the PlayStation store.

Konami had become the sort of thing you might expect retching into a bush in the Alchemilla Hospital parking lot. Their position as a respected publisher of amazing franchises like Castlevania, Metal Gear and Silent Hill was ruined. They no longer cared about the community that had supported them for decades.

The reason for this spectacular implosion is, unfortunately, deeply lame. When Hideki Hayakawa took over as Konami’s new head honcho, the company announced a “corporate restructuring” so they could focus less on creating stunningly ambitious works of interactive art that go on to define entire console generations so they could churn out more mobile games.

This led to a “power struggle” between Hayakawa and Kojima, otherwise known as the guy who guides the development of all those stunningly ambitious works of interactive art that go on to define entire console generations.

Now, this series does still has a future — it just won’t be using the Silent Hill name.

What might’ve been lives on through the bits and pieces that were deemed salvageable by a growing number of talented indie developers that have since used them as the foundation for games like Allison Road, Layers of Fear and Visage.

Everyone had their own idea of what Silent Hills would’ve been like, and that was enough for some to invest a significant amount of time and money into realizing that potential, in part, for the nearly 200,000 fans who rallied together to petition for its return.

That petition didn’t give us exactly what we wanted, but it couldn’t have anyway. Konami can’t hear us anymore. They’re in Pachinko heaven now, oblivious to the fact that their fate is about to align with the beloved survival horror franchise they so unceremoniously ended.

We can only hope that Silent Hill will stay true to its genre and survive this horror. It’ll probably be some time before we hear from it again. Until that time, we can take some comfort in knowing that the admin who went bonkers for baby penises on the Silent Hill wiki a couple weeks ago has had his reign snipped by a popular vote.

It’s been a real roller coaster ride of a year, but it’s over now. The New Year is almost upon us. I know you’ve grown tired of this conversation, so if you’d like to sneak one final jab at Konami, this is your chance. Don’t hold back. They’ve done plenty to earn it.

With his studio restored and a partnership with Sony in his back pocket, Kojima has gotten back to work doing what he does best. It could be just about anything, and that’s exciting. So…

What would you like to see come next from the new Kojima Productions?

Twisted Music Video of the Week Vol. 212: Haust “No Christmas”

It’s Christmas, so how remiss would I be if I didn’t have a Twisted Music Video to celebrate the occasion? That’s why I’m turning to the slasher-themed “No Christmas” video from Norwegian punk band Haust! Santa absolutely filled this sack with gore and merriment, although I don’t think his victims are exactly celebrating that second part….

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Make Your Own “Gears of War” Chainsaw Machine Gun

bloody disgusting - Sat, 12/26/2015 - 13:30

I remember playing the original “Gears of War” on my 360 so much that I could beat it in nearly one sitting. Hell, if I didn’t have things to do, I probably would’ve beaten it in one go.

Now, eight years after the release of the original (fuck, I’m old), the chainsaw gun has become one of the most iconic weapons in video game history. But getting your hands on one isn’t exactly an easy task. Accurate replicas cost a lot of money and they also most likely end up weighing quite a bit, making them pretty unwieldy for cosplay purposes.

Instead of paying exorbitant amounts of money for a prop, why not make one for yourself on the cheap? Below is a video that shows step-by-step instructions on how you can do just that while still staying within the double digits financially.

If you’ve made your own props, link us a picture in the comments and show us!

Best Blu-ray Releases of 2015: The Double Features Edition!

If you saw my Best Blu-ray Releases of 2015: The Collections Edition you know that I felt that 2015 was an incredible year for Blu-ray, especially for genre fans like us. Because of that I’ve decided to do multiple Best of Blu-ray lists. Today I’m ranking the Double Features.

The rules for this list are simple – if a Blu-ray release was two films, it’s eligible! This will just be a Top 5 because double features aren’t released all that often. That should cover it all, so let’s see the list!

Teaser for Open World Ghost Hunting Game Sylvio 2 Will Give You Nightmares

Dread Central - Sat, 12/26/2015 - 11:00

This year’s indie horror game Sylvio may not have gotten a whole lot of attention in the media, but don’t fret if you’re a fan and were worried that it would fade into obscurity, as it may be getting a sequel.

For those unfamiliar with the first game, it has you playing as paranormal investigator Juliette Waters, as she examines strange goings-on in an abandoned theme park. It mostly did well critically and was even hailed by some as one of the best horror games of the year, despite not being a major release, so you can check it out on Steam if you’re interested.

The sequel, which is currently on Kickstarter, will see Juliette return, this time with a large open world. Oddly enough, it will also be set primarily in broad daylight, but if this turns you off, rest assured that director Niklas Swanberg is still striving to create as pure a horror experience as possible: “Sylvio 2 is built for the horror game enthusiast and tries to push the boundaries of what has been done in horror games up till this date.”

And with all the action-oriented horror games on the market at the moment, the opening of the video below reminds that horror games can also be slow and downright terrifying when they want to be.

Synopsis:
Sylvio 2 is a single-player first-person, open world horror game, set in full daylight, where you get your missions from the dead as well as the living.

Juliette Waters, ghost recorder and EVP specialist, is back again to face the darkness that resides in Saginaw Family Park. The story takes off where the original Sylvio ended; the park has been ravished by a forest fire and heavy rainstorms, resulting in extensive flooding. Juliette travels the vast park by foot and with the help of a dinghy, solving environment puzzles, searching for spirit activity, and exploring the lands.

The game consists of five distinct parts:

  • Main Story – Juliette once again faces the darkness of Saginaw through environment puzzles and challenging objectives.
  • Record Ghosts in vision and audio – analyze recordings to find hidden messages and objectives.
  • Explore a vast flooded, burnt, foggy world by foot or by dinghy.
  • Combat – Black Orbs and Human Forms might hurt you if they get too close. Keep your distance or force them to disappear.
  • Lucid Dreaming – Find places to sleep and explore Juliette’s dreams and nightmares.

The post Teaser for Open World Ghost Hunting Game Sylvio 2 Will Give You Nightmares appeared first on Dread Central.

Is the Classic Guns N’ Roses Lineup Reuniting?

bloody disgusting - Fri, 12/25/2015 - 17:20

The official Guns N’ Roses website has been reskinned with the classic logo and the webstore features a ton of classic-themed merch, all of which is fueling rumors that the original lineup of the group will be reuniting for a tour. This lineup includes vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler.

These rumors began in the summer when Slash announced that he and Rose had mended their relationship after nearly 20 years of bad blood. People are also convinced that we’re going to get the first official announcement when Coachella releases its 2016 edition on January 5th.

Guns N’ Roses rose to fame in the 80’s with their blend of hard rock and heavy metal in albums such as Appetite for Destruction, Use Your Illusion 1 and Use Your Illusion 2, each of which sold millions upon millions of copies, making the band one of the most successful groups on the planet.

We hear this reunion is happening, but it’s simply a matter of whether or not it will implode before full plans are realized. Here’s hoping that it goes through as seeing this lineup has always been a dream of mine!

Enjoy Bloody’s Own Twisted Take on “A Visit From St. Nicholas”

bloody disgusting - Fri, 12/25/2015 - 15:00

Yesterday I had a blast taking over the BD Twitter account (which you should be following) and tweeting out my own interesting take on Clement Clarke Moore’s iconic Christmas poem “A Visit From St. Nicholas”, which is often known as “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. I didn’t change any of the words but I did split it up line-by-line so that I could give each segment its own horrifying gif! It was a lot of work and some images aren’t 100% perfect but dammit I gave it my all!

For those who missed it when it went live, here’s your chance to read it all in one go! Enjoy and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

Dark (2015)

Dread Central - Fri, 12/25/2015 - 14:00

Starring Whitney Able, Alexandra Breckenridge, Michael Eklund, Redman

Directed by Nick Basille

Disturbed Kate (Whitney Able) is forced to confront her worst fears and phobias when she finds herself trapped alone in her New York loft during a blackout of the whole city.

We see the beautiful blonde is a bit coo-coo in the very beginning, during a full-on make-out session with her live-in lesbian lover, Leah (Alexandra Breckenridge). Kate tries to get Leah to choke her, but her gal pal is having none of it. The mood is broken.

But the affair is not. Leah professes her love and her jealousy over Kate’s many admirers, but still – Leah has to leave town for a little while. Kate seems relieved to have some alone time, but when the power goes out, things start to get very, very… dark.

Dark has got some heavy hitters behind the scenes. For one thing, it’s executive produced by Joe Dante. The writer is Elias, who enjoyed underground success with his body-horror low-budgeter Gut in 2012. Director Nick Basille hasn’t done much of note before, but I’m impressed by his sense of style and would like to see more.

The true stars of the show are DP Trent Ermes, the editing department, and especially lead actress Able. She’s compelling and mesmerizing, even when doing the most mundane things – which, I’ll tell you… if you’re looking for a scare-a-second, Dark will leave you cold. Able, especially when she starts to seriously unravel, brings to mind a young Jennifer Jason Leigh, not only in looks but in mannerisms and acting style. She’s excellent.

The movie is pretty near excellent too, but only for certain types of fandom. If you enjoy slow-burn, suspenseful, single-character thrillers – think: Repulsion, The Tenant, House of the Devil – then Dark will be right up your alley. I love this kind of stuff, but I will say even for me the flick dragged from time to time, and a few things were unclear even though I was paying attention.

It’s not perfect, but Dark is one of the better arty indies I’ve seen in some time.
