Lightning Entertainment Brings GirlHouse and The Blackout to AFM 2014

Dread Central - Tue, 11/04/2014 - 17:44

AFM is looming like a masked maniac over the shoulder of a nubile teen, and Lightning Entertainment is poised to bring two new horror projects to the big dance, one of which is from the director of Jack Brooks Monster Slayer. Read on!

From the Press Release
Adding to its robust international sales slate on the eve of the AFM, Lightning Entertainment announced today that it has acquired international sales rights to Louis Mandylor’s thriller The Blackout and Brookstreet Pictures’ horror thriller GirlHouse, directed by Trevor Matthews and Jon Knautz. The announcement was made by Lightning Entertainment EVP & General Manager Ken DuBow.

The AFM will serve as the market debut for both films with Lightning giving international buyers their first glimpse at each.

Directed by Louis Mandylor (In the Eyes of a Killer, Jimmy Bones) and written by Steve C. Yoon and Jordan Marder, The Blackout stars Lymari Nadal (American Gangster, “Battlestar Galactica”), Costas Mandylor (Saw film series, “Picket Fences”), Jordan Marder (American History X, Lord of Illusions), Ronnie Gene Blevins (The Dark Knight Rises, Joe, Seven Psychopaths), Bill Sage (American Psycho, Precious, Boiler Room), Abe Benrubi (U Turn, Wristcutters: A Love Story), and Grant Harvey (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” Save the Date, Geography Club).

Horror thriller GirlHouse is directed by Trevor Matthews and Jon Knautz (The Shrine, Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer) and written by Gersh client Nick Gordon. The film stars Ali Cobrin (Neighbors, American Reunion) and Slaine (Killing Them Softly, The Town) and Adam DiMarco (Words and Pictures, Date and Switch), and features Chasty Ballesteros (Final Destination 5, The Internship, Casting Couch), and Erin Agostino (“18 to Life,” You Are So Undead).

Acquisitions and Sales Consultant Richard S. Guardian and Joseph Dickstein, SVP of Lighting Entertainment, negotiated the deal to handle international sales rights for The Blackout with executive producer and attorney Mark Halloran and for GirlHouse with Jay Cohen of Gersh.

About The Blackout
Martin and Julia (Lymari Nadal) leave New York City to return to the small town where Martin grew up. The house his father lived in hasn’t been touched since his passing. People in the town recognize the handsome man as his father’s son. Julia, his pregnant wife, likes the cozy countryside and makes herself at home.

Four college kids hike through the woods and camp at the top of a scenic hill. Jim (Costas Mandylor) has lived in the town for years, and since his wife’s passing he has built a comfortable life for himself, fishing and playing chess with friends over his shortwave radio.

Then the power goes out.

It doesn’t take long before food and supplies become scarce, fights break out, and people start to panic. The worst of humanity surfaces in only a few days. Things take a turn for the worse when a few men, lead by a convict named Lee (Ronnie Gene Blevins), decide to take what’s left for themselves. The Sheriff makes a stand to try to stop them and regrets it.

Jim gets his weapons ready and prepares for what’s coming. Martin tries to stay calm until his wife’s pregnancy is no longer at risk. The college kids come down from the peaceful woods into the middle of a whirlwind of fear and violence.

Everyone eventually crosses paths, and things come to a violent head. Some people live, some do not. It only takes a few days of living in fear, with no power or food or water, for humanity to unravel. There was light. Then there was darkness.

About GirlHouse
Kylie Atkins (Ali Cobrin) is a beautiful young co-ed with cover girl looks and a desperate need for money to pay her college tuition. Having convinced herself that Internet porn may be the answer to her financial problems, Kylie is recruited to join GirlHouse, a live web-feed broadcasting the sexy antics of a group of stunning young women living in a secluded – and highly secure – wooded mansion. One night while Kylie is out, one of the other girls insults an online client (Slaine), a deranged psychopathic computer technician, who then hacks in to determine the house’s location, seeking twisted revenge. Kylie returns to the house to find herself cut off from the outside world and in a terrifying fight for survival.

Scott Ian’s Bloodworks Goes Behind the Scenes – and in Front of the Camera – for The Walking Dead

Dread Central - Tue, 11/04/2014 - 17:16

It’s not typical for us to cover a web series much beyond its first episode to make sure you guys are aware of it, but a new episode of “Scott Ian’s Bloodworks” arrived today, and since it features Scott getting made up as a zombie for “The Walking Dead” and appearing on the show, we thought we’d make an exception.

“Scott Ian’s Bloodworks” on Nerdist.com takes you behind the scenes for a look at the most impressive makeup and effects artists in the business, the A-list celebrities they work with, and the blockbuster films and TV series that benefit from their craft.

About “Scott Ian’s Bloodworks”
There are two things almost impossible for visitors to do on the set of “The Walking Dead.” The first is get made up to be a zombie. The show’s hugely popular, and too many people request to appear on it now, so executive producer/director/makeup effects supervisor Greg Nicotero has to say no to just about every wannabe walker. The second is to share images from upcoming episodes — no matter how small the information discernible from them — months before they’re televised.

Anthrax’s Scott Ian manages to accomplish both of these things in the latest episode of “Bloodworks,” in which he not only goes behind the scenes of “The Walking Dead” and experiences firsthand what it’s like to be a walker, but he actually gets to attack star Andrew Lincoln in a scene directed by Nicotero himself!

Check out Ian’s account of the experience in the video below. You’ll find exclusive commentary from Nicotero as well as his colleagues at KNB EFX in Chatsworth, California, including shop-runner Carey Jones and sculptor Jeremy Aiello, all of whom offer a terrific overview of what it takes to create a zombie, from design to foam-latex appliance construction to the auditioning of actors.

Tune in every Tuesday on Nerdist.com for new episodes of “Scott Ian’s Bloodworks.”

‘Chappie’ Trailer Built to Be More Human Than Action-Packed

bloody disgusting - Tue, 11/04/2014 - 14:07

Sony Pictures Entertainment has just released the first trailer for Chappie, the next film from writer-director Neill Blomkamp of District 9 fame.

“Chappie tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes.

The trailer isn’t what I was expecting, turning in something way more human than action-oriented. It’s clear where this movie is headed, and if the audience isn’t crying during the final scenes (I guarantee Chappie will die), the filmmakers have failed.

In theaters March 27, 2015, the film will star Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, with Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and members of rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, as the two gangsters. Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Jose Pablo Cantillo and Sigourney Weaver also star.

Proof the “American Horror Story” Seasons Are Connected?

bloody disgusting - Tue, 11/04/2014 - 14:01

“American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed the obvious, all seasons of the hit FX series are connected.

Some proof comes in this fresh Internet theory that puts Jessica Lange’s “Freak Show” character in the world of “Asylum.”

So, how did Elsa Mars lose her legs?

In this past week’s episode, we learn of Elsa Mars’ (Lange) past. She confesses to Edward Mordake that, back in 1932, she was a German dominatrix. The best at her job. That was, until several men drugged her and cut off her legs to create a “snuff” film.

The connection heads back to the second season, “Asylum,” where it was revealed that Dr. Arden was a Nazi doctor who had a fetish for removing people’s legs.

This is just one of many Easter Eggs floating around. What have you noticed in the four seasons of “American Horror Story”? Do you see any connections?

Stephen King Really, Truly Hates Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’

bloody disgusting - Tue, 11/04/2014 - 13:52

If anyone has a right to shit all over Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, it’s Stephen King.

The 1980 film was an adaptation of King’s novel that he feels is not only cold, but incredibly misogynistic. This isn’t the first time he’s slammed the critically acclaimed psychological horror film that stars Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance, but he does add some new clarity.

“I don’t get it. But there are a lot of things that I don’t get. But obviously people absolutely love it, and they don’t understand why I don’t,” he tells Rollingstone. “The book is hot, and the movie is cold; the book ends in fire, and the movie in ice. In the book, there’s an actual arc where you see this guy, Jack Torrance, trying to be good, and little by little he moves over to this place where he’s crazy. And as far as I was concerned, when I saw the movie, Jack was crazy from the first scene. I had to keep my mouth shut at the time. It was a screening, and Nicholson was there. But I’m thinking to myself the minute he’s on the screen, “Oh, I know this guy. I’ve seen him in five motorcycle movies, where Jack Nicholson played the same part.” And it’s so misogynistic. I mean, Wendy Torrance is just presented as this sort of screaming dishrag. But that’s just me, that’s the way I am.”

There’s a lot more in the interview, including King’s implied hatred for Rodney Ascher’s 2012 Room 237, which is an exploration of various interpretations of Kubrick’s horror film.

…Well, let me put it this way – I watched about half of it and got sort of impatient with it and turned it off.

These guys were reaching. I’ve never had much patience for academic bullshit. It’s like Dylan says, “You give people a lot of knives and forks, they’ve gotta cut something.” And that was what was going on in that movie.

You gotta love the guy’s honesty.

EW shared the first look at The Thing star Kurt Russell in Bone Tomahawk, a horror Western that also features Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins, David Arquette, Lili Simmons and Sid Haig.

In Bone Tomahawk, “four men attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes that live beyond the edge of civilization.

Wilson says he was drawn to the project by both the script and the opportunity to ride out with Russell. “I mean, if you’re a child of the 80s, your Westerns are Silverado and Tombstone,” says the Insidious star. “To do a movie with Kurt is one thing—to do a Western with Kurt is like, ‘Alright! I’m going to be next to Wyatt Earp up there on a horse!’”

Check out these incredible new images from Clown, a new horror film produced by Eli Roth (The Last Exorcism, Hostel, Cabin Fever, The Green Infenro).

Roth became attached to the project after seeing Jon Watts’ awesome faux trailer. It was then turned into the following feature starring Peter Stormare, Laura Allen, Christian DiStefano, Elizabeth Whitmere, Matthew Stefiuk, and Andy Powers.

In the spoof trailer and the upcoming feature, a loving father dons a clown outfit, wig, bulbous nose and pancake makeup to entertain at his son’s sixth birthday after the clown-for-hire is a no-show. Unable to take off the clown garb, dad’s personality changes in horrific fashion. He and his family race to break the curse of the evil outfit before he undergoes a complete transformation into a homicidal killer with over-sized shoes.


Here’s the previously released Italian one-sheet (wow!) and trailer, along with the old U.S. trailer. The new version, while it doesn’t have subs, has quite a bit of new footage edited in.

Fan-Made Doc Explores How New Line Cinema Destroyed the ‘Friday the 13th’ Franchise

bloody disgusting - Tue, 11/04/2014 - 12:05

My buddy sent me a really fun – and sad – homemade documentary that details how New Line Cinema destroyed the Friday the 13th franchise.

The 37-min doc uses old interview footage to show how the franchise digressed from Jason Takes Manhattan to Jason X and even Freddy vs Jason. It also shares shocking interview quotes from franchise creator Sean Cunningham who allegedly never saw the sequels, and only made new ones to get into bed with New Line (I wish there were denotations shared below the video).

I don’t necessarily agree with everything, but, either way, it’s actually a breath of fresh air to see a doc that shows the dark side of the franchise, instead of celebrating garbage like Jason Goes to Hell.
