Knife fights, sons out for revenge and shoots outs with possessed killers. That pretty much sums up “Dream Thief: Escape” #4. Things wrap up in the conclusion to the latest story for John Lincoln and his magical mask and family business.

The flashbacks have almost caught up to the present day story to tie things together nicely. Writer Jai Nitz knew what he wanted to accomplish here with this storyline: a legacy. Legacy heroes / villains / anti-heroes are some brilliant creations to make. Think of how much more story potential that gives a character. Every major comic company has at least one or more in their stables. It’s always fun to see different versions of characters, new or old. In this case, Dream Thief is now known to be a family business. Business that gets passed down despite parents best wishes. It’s one of the most bizarre father-son buddy tales I’ve ever read. Make no mistake, this is worth reading.
Greg Smallwood, the original artist in the first mini-series, is now only providing covers which is a shame. Tadd Galusha took over artwork for the series last month and the tone of the story has completely shifted. Gone are the gorgeous paneling and bleeding over of art from page to page. Instead, the action is more straight forward and generic. It’s not bad, but it’s not as good as it used to be. Galusha’s faces look more comical than serious or varied than they did last issue.
As I said before, this book is still worth reading. It is by far one of the darkest family bonding experiences you’ve ever seen. This is not a family fishing trip but more like a murderous rundown for revenge. Still, father and son Lincoln manages to keep me intrigued enough to see where this Dream Thief will turn up next. The premise of this story demands some better art that is more moody than run-of-the-mill. I hope next time John Lincoln wakes up, we all see how gritty and great it can be.
Starz Digital Media announced they will release Bad Turn Worse (formerly We Gotta Get Out of This Place), the directorial debut of Zeke and Simon Hawkins, in select theaters and on VOD on November 14th.
“After a weekend of partying with stolen money, three Texas teens (Jeremy Allen White, Logan Huffman, and Mackenzie Davis) find themselves indebted to a sociopathic criminal named Giff (Mark Pellegrino in a breakout performance). To repay their debt, Giff forces the teens to steal from his boss, a money-laundering gangster named Big Red (William Devane). Things go from bad to worse when betrayal, distrust, and corruption complicate an already dangerous plan.“
The film features a variety of young rising stars and familiar faces including Jeremy Allen White (Showtime’s “Shameless”, Afterschool), Mackenzie Davis (What If, AMC’S “Halt and Catch Fire”), Logan Huffman (Refuge, ABC’s “V”), Mark Pellegrino (The Big Lebowski, SyFy’s “Being Human”) and William Devane (The Dark Knight Rises, FOX’s “24” & “24: Live Another Day”). Bad Turn Worse was written by “Black List” screenwriter and pop culture T-shirt designer Dutch Southern. Justin Duprie and Brian Udovich produced for Rough & Tumble Films.
Bad Turn Worse premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival before it won the audience award at the 2013 AFI Fest.
The film will be released theatrically in the US and Canada day-and-date with its release across all major VOD outlets, including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Xbox Video and cable providers.
Dark Sky Films will release remember the bloody summer with their October 17 VOD and theatrical release of the absolutely hilarious must-see hipster horror Summer of Blood (read our review).
Check out the film’s equally hilarious one-sheet to go with the theatrical trailer. Onur Tukel is mind-blowing in this hipster horror film that’s loaded with gut-busting laughs. If you enjoy horror comedy, definitely seek this out.
“Writer/director Onur Tukel turns in a hilarious performance as the monumentally lazy, socially oblivious and commitment-shy Erik Sparrow, who is dumped by his career-woman girlfriend (Anna Margaret Hollyman, White Reindeer) when he rejects her rather charitable marriage proposal. Feeling lost, he turns to a disastrous string of online dates that successively eat away at his already-deteriorating confidence until a lanky vampire turns him into an undead ladykiller. Soon, Eric is prowling the streets of Brooklyn in search of anything to satisfy both his maniacal sex drive and his hunger for blood. A collision of absurd, self-deprecating wit and existential curiosity, Summer of Blood is a hilarious horror-comedy with a clever bite all its own.”
Onur Tukel (Septien, Red Flag), Alex Karpovsky (Girls), Anna Margaret Hollyman (Gayby, White Reindeer), Dakota Goldhor (Thumbsucker), Dustin Guy Defa (Bad Fever), Keith Poulson (Hellaware, Listen Up Phillip) all star.
It’s now officially Halloween month, and if you’re an avid reader looking to get in the proper seasonal mood, there’s a spooky sounding tale heading our way in the form of Kim Newman’s An English Ghost Story. It arrives October 7th from Titan Books, and we have an excerpt from it entitled “Spring” right here.
Newman has won the Bram Stoker, International Horror Guild, British Fantasy, and British Science Fiction Awards and been nominated for the Hugo and World Fantasy Awards.
CLICK HERE to download a pdf of our An English Ghost Story preview.
A dysfunctional British nuclear family seek a new life away from the big city in the sleepy Somerset countryside. At first their new home, The Hollow, seems to embrace them, creating a rare peace and harmony within the family. But when the house turns on them, it seems to know just how to hurt them the most—threatening to destroy them from the inside out.

Barks plays a figure in Eastern European folk tales known as a baba yaga, a beautiful young woman who turns into a savage witch. Kristjansson is Bright Eyes, an Eastern European taken as a slave as a young boy and now a vicious assassin in the Ottoman Army. Parkinson portrays Dracula’s son, named Ingeras.

Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures long delayed Seventh Son is finally set for release on February 6, 2015, as we previously released. A new one-sheet premiered and it’s sort of funny because it looks like something Uwe Boll would release back in the day (like In the Name of the King).
The action adventure stars Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Olivia Williams, Antje Traue, Djimon Hounsou and Julianne Moore. It is based on the book “The Spook’s Apprentice” (AKA “The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch”) by Joseph Delaney.
Directed by Sergei Bodrov, “In a time of enchantments when legends and magic collide, the sole remaining warrior of a mystical order (Oscar winner Jeff Bridges) travels to find a prophesized hero born with incredible powers, the last Seventh Son (Ben Barnes). Torn from his quiet life as a farmhand, the unlikely young hero embarks on a daring adventure with his battle-hardened mentor to vanquish a dark queen (Julianne Moore) and the army of supernatural assassins she has dispatched against their kingdom.“
AMC released a new “The Walking Dead” featurette that has interviews with the cast and crew discussing their expectations for Season 5.
My favorite part of the video is where Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, interprets the series for us. Why is it so funny? Because it’s the most basic and generic way to explain “The Walking Dead” to someone. After five seasons, you’d think he’d have something more inspired to say.
“I see it as a story that keeps moving forward,” explains Lincoln, who apparently has never seen anything, ever. “You start with these character in one place, and over time this world changes them.” Because, you know, in film and television, characters aren’t changed by their environment.
It’s hilarious when actors think they’re being profound and clearly aren’t. Love or hate the show, this shit is funny.
“The Walking Dead” premieres on Sunday, October 12 at 9:00pm ET/PT.

The Babadook will make you beleive, opening here in the States on November 28, and in the UK on October 24. In this new trailer, we learn that fear is the catalyst for the Dook!
Written and directed by Jennifer Kent, the film has terrified audiences since it premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival (read our review).
In it, “Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her ‘out of control’ 6-year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a sinister monster he believes is coming to kill them both.
When a disturbing storybook called ‘The Babadook’ turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that ‘The Babadook’ is the creature he’s been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control and as he becomes more unpredictable and violent, Amelia is genuinely frightened by her son’s behaviour.
But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.”
Fans of Friday The 13th, have I got a treat for you! Courtesy of Videogram, we’re bring you the track “Camp Blood” which is, “…a sort of “nudge nudge, wink wink” to fellow horror fans and a mix of the disco theme of Part 3 and Michael Jackson‘s Thriller.”
The song is catchy, it’s total 80′s horror-synth, and it’s perfect for your Halloween party! You can watch a video of the song below, which uses footage from the Indonesian knockoff Srigala.
If you dug the song as much as I did, you can snag it for $1 off of Bandcamp.

“The Vampire Diaries” Episode 6.02 – “Yellow Ledbetter” (10/9/14)
Knowing she needs to come to terms with the loss of Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Elena (Nina Dobrev) turns to Alaric (Matt Davis) to help her move on with her life.

The incredibly creepy 2D survival horror game Silence of the Sleep has finally arrived on Steam, making it the first new horror release of the month. I hate comparing such a unique game to something else, because this atmospheric gem of a game easily stands on its own, but it really does resemble what I imagine a 2D Silent Hill might be like.
Silence of the Sleep is impressive, and it also happens to be the work of one man, who handled everything from the animation, art, coding, music and marketing. I spent some time with its demo back in April; feel free to use it as a sampling of what this game has to offer.
Silence of the Sleep is available now on Steam for $16.99.
Because our posting of the 15 Of The Creepiest Things Kids Have Said To Their Parents yesterday was so well received, we went out to find even more scary things that kids have said. We just have to post it again and during the night time too so that you can enjoy the full spine-tingling effects of reading these stories.
This batch of stories came about when a redditor posted on Reddit the question, “What is the scariest thing a kid has said to you?”
What is up with creepy kids? Don’t they have better things to say? Or were these kids possessed or could see things that we adults couldn’t? Regardless, we’re not taking any baby-sitting gigs any time soon.

It’s “American Horror Story Against Humanity”!
This Imgur user imagined playing the widely popular Cards Against Humanity with scenes from FX’s “American Horror Story.”
What you see are 5 cards played that end with the birth of the Antichrist, and a sad, sad hand job.
Can you think of even better cards to play?!
Techland has dropped a new trailer for Dying Light, their open-world zombie survival game — a term I’ve been using to describe a lot of games lately — that focuses on the asymmetric multiplayer mode they’ve dubbed Be the Zombie. The mode pits a team of survivors against a player-controlled monster that’s basically an overpowered killing machine, because why not?
I feel like this is a mode I’ll try once or twice to see what it’s like when another player invades my game and subsequently kicks my ass, before disabling it. That’s if I get it at all, seeing as the mode is currently a preorder exclusive.
Dying Light hits PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on January 27, 2015.
Undead Labs has announced their open-world zombie survival game State of Decay has passed another impressive milestone by selling over two million copies on Xbox 360 and Steam. The game was a runaway success, breaking sales records when it first hit XBLA last June, so this isn’t that surprising. It also happens to be a superb game that they’ve continued to support with numerous updates and two story expansions.
I’m sure this number will see a substantial increase when the State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition arrives on Xbox One with brand new content in early 2015.
