‘[REC]4: Apocalypse’ Is Already On Amazon Instant

bloody disgusting - Tue, 12/23/2014 - 11:09

Earlier than expected, Magnet Releasing’s [REC]4: Apocalypse, the fourth and final entry in the groundbreaking and terrifying [REC] horror series, is already on Amazon Instant – even though Magnet will release the film day and date in theaters, on iTunes and On Demand everywhere on Friday, January 2nd, 2015.

[REC]4 was directed by Jaume Balagueró, co-director of the first two films who returns for the climax of the series. Whereas [REC]3 took a slight tonal detour towards horror-comedy, [REC]4 is a return to the intense thrills and scares that helped make the [REC] franchise one of the most beloved in the horror genre.

Check out a trio of character videos we released exclusively yesterday morning.

“Several hours have passed since the terrible events that ravaged the old building in Barcelona. After the chaos of the first few moments, the army decided to intervene and an elite group of soldiers infiltrated the building in order to plant detonators and put an end to this nightmare once and for all. The mission is a success; quick and precise. Angela Vidal, the young television reporter who entered the building with the fireman just hours before, manages to make it out alive. But what they don’t know is that she hasn’t made it out of the building alone; within her she carries the seed of the strange infection. She is to be taken to a provisional quarantine facility, a high-security installation where she will have to stay in isolation for several days. A perfect location for the virus to be reborn in all its splendor. It will take on new and even more deadly forms, setting the scene for horrors we could only have imagined, before finally revealing its true nature. The apocalypse has just begun…”

The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this year in the Midnight Madness section.

[BEST & WORST '14] Adam’s 5 Least Favorite Horror Films of 2014!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 12/23/2014 - 11:00

As we’ve already established, 2014 has been good to horror fans. Unfortunately, the bad and the ugly often outnumber the good and the unforgettable, so for every Babadook we’re left with a half-dozen Paranormal Activity Sequel Number Blah: Spooky Boogaloo. Every film geek eventually gets familiar with that horrible feeling you get when the credits roll and you gradually realize you’ve just wasted two hours on a movie that’s particularly awful.

To save your from that unwelcome realization, I’ve decided to make more of an effort than any of the filmmakers did with the movies on this list and come up with a handful of some of the worst horror movies of 2014. I’ve sat through them so you don’t have to.

Extraterrestrial / Alien Abduction

Whether or not you believe in them, the idea of aliens is a scary one. It isn’t their appearance. If sickly creatures with freaky googly eyes terrified us, the Lemur, Mother Nature’s heroin addict, would’ve been the first to go. They’re an unknown, a mystery, and since humanity has an inherent fear in things we don’t understand, that makes them scary. Signs had me until Shyamalan decided to keep the alien on-screen long enough for me to see its goofy face.

2014 may have gifted us with Under the Skin, but it also shat out the twin turds that were Extraterrestrial and Alien Abduction. I won’t even bother separating the two. They each fail spectacularly to make aliens scary. Instead, they take turns falling back on poorly constructed scares, dull characters and weak, uninspired stories.

If it’s a film about aliens you crave, watch Under the Skin. Seriously, go watch it. Forget these films exist and watch it.

Albert Sandoval and Daemon Hillen will produce. Sandoval will also direct from a script by Devlin Mann and Stephen Dare.

RadioactiveGiant is planning production of Miskatonic for late 2015 to early 2016.

[BEST & WORST '14 ] Patrick Cooper’s Top 10 Horror Films of 2014

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/22/2014 - 20:20

The past year of horror was tremendous and proof that the genre is as vibrant as ever. While most big studio releases failed to resonate with me, there were a ton of indies and VOD releases that made an impact and left me thirsty for more.

If I had to tip my hat to one major release this year, it’d be Annabelle. It wasn’t very good, but at least it was fun and competently made. And c’mon, that demon in the basement was a pretty awesome bit.

But other than that, my top slots are populated with films from the smaller studios. This year had so many great films to offer I was forced to do some serious whittling down. I always find the ranking system a pain in the ass, so don’t pay the numbers any mind. Shuffle them around, start reading from the middle, I don’t care. All these movies deserve bro hugs.

10.  Summer of Blood (Oct. 17; Dark Sky Films)

Writer-director-actor Onur Tukel’s horror-comedy is a fresh satire on the vampire mythos, one that uses absurd situations to explore very human fears like commitment and urban life. Without an ounce of the pretentiousness so often found in indie comedies, Tukel has crafted a sincerely hilarious film that’s not without its fair share of gore and sex. Mad, tantric vampire sex, that is. Pardon my hyperbole, but Summer of Blood is simply one of the best and most honest horror-comedies in years. You may be laughing too hard to catch some of the jokes the first time (the landlord scene had me in tears), so reliving the Summer of Blood is a must. 

9. The Guest (Sept. 17; Picturehouse)

Following up You’re Next was a tall order for Adam Winged and Simon Barrett. Rather than go a straight-up horror route, they delivered this mean little action-infused thriller. With a pinch of Bourne influence and a hefty dose of dark comedy, The Guest is an absolute blast that strikes the perfect balance between edgy contemporary and throwback. As the enigmatic David, hypnotic hunk Dan Stevens proved himself to be one of the coolest, coldest mouths in recent genre history.

8. Housebound (Oct. 17; Phase 4)

Housebound announces the arrival of a great new talent in genre filmmaking – Gerard Johnstone. He knows his shit and cleverly twists the tropes to create something effectively creepy and wholly unique. Housebound plows through a lot of worn horror-comedy ground. However, it does so with so much gleeful indulgence that many of the beats feel fresh. Johnstone knows what a horror audience is expecting and he pounces at all the right moments. Housebound was easily one of 2014’s biggest genre crowd pleasers. 

7. Under the Skin (Apr. 4; A24 Films)

The dating scene in Scotland is completely bonkers, man. Guys cruising bars for a little tail wind up immersed in a pool of black goo, where they cool off while their guts and junk are sent up to Scarlett Johansson’s alien overlords. I think. I think that’s what going on in Jonathan Glazer’s mesmerizing mind-fuck Under the Skin. Scintillating, mysterious, suggestive – the list of appropriate adjectives could stretch from here to Planet Sexy Alien and back. On a related side note: as a member of the Florida Film Critics Circle, I was stoked to help award Mica Levi Best Original Score for her brilliant work on Under the Skin.

6. Only Lovers Left Alive (Apr. 11; Sony Pictures Classics)

A Jim Jarmusch movie about two pasty bohemian vampires who lounge around on exotic throw pillows and listen to music. Oh, that sounds like a real pisser. That’s what I first thought, at least. Turns out Only Lovers Left Alive is a brilliant piece of art filled with strings of comical philosophizing, sorrow, and romance. With loads of gothic atmosphere and two exceedingly awesome lead performances by Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as vampiric soulmates, Jarmusch has crafted a truly remarkable genre mash up. 

5. Enemy (Feb. 6; A24 Films)

A24 Films crushed it this year, releasing smart, edgy fare like Under the Skin, Locke, A Most Violent Year, and this bad boy, Enemy. A wholly independent doppelganger enigma that left many folks (including me) scratching their heads. It also terrified the hell out of audiences with its shocking ending, which has got to be one of the most unpredictable climaxes in years. With Enemy and Prisoners, Vulleneuve proves he’s capable of creating incredible films on an independent and big studio level. I’ve read a few reactions to Enemy that called it “pretentious,” which I think is complete bullshit. It would be pretentious if the film was vague and surreal with no ideas to back it up, but the clues are all there.

4. Big Bad Wolves (Jan 17; Magnet Releasing)

It’s rare to find a truly disturbing film that’s also incredibly funny. That’s one of the amazing things about Israeli filmmakers Aharon Keshales and Navot Paushado’s (Rabies) Big Bad Wolves. They’re able to deftly balance some really upsetting material with laugh out loud moments, without ever fumbling the moral implications in the process. Even after multiple viewings, Big Bad Wolves proved to be a haunting, hilarious masterpiece that skillfully manages its distinctive tone throughout. Believe the hype and keep Aharon Keshales and Navot Paushado on your radar forever.

3. The Babadook (Nov. 28; IFC Films)

Believe the hype, folks. Jennifer Kent’s nursery rhyme-infused dramatic horror The Babadook is the real deal. It’s a thickly atmospheric psychological horror about the conflicts facing single mother Essie Davis (who delivers a tremendous performance). At first it was tough for me to get past her screeching banshee of a son, but once the palpable dread takes hold of you, it’s impossible not to get swept up n the drama. Also, it’s really fun to leave “Babadooooook, dooooook, dooOOOOOK!” voicemails on your wife’s phone.

2. Late Phases (Nov. 21; Dark Sky Films)

For his English-language debut Late Phases, Spanish director Adrián García Bogliano has done something special. He’s crafted a werewolf shocker that reads more like a revenge/vigilante flick than a horror film. All of the traditional werewolf elements are there – silver bullets, full moons, etc. – but at its core its really the tale of a tired Vietnam vet who was blinded in combat and went dark to the world, including to his family. It’s funny, brash, and exciting, but knows when to pull back and let the emotion sink in. Simply put, it’s a masterpiece of the werewolf genre because of what it accomplishes on top of the scares, which is deliver a truly emotional, heartfelt story of a father and son. And Nick Damici does badass old blind man very, very well. Check out my interview with him here.

1. Starry Eyes (Nov. 14; Dark Sky Films)

A potent brew of seductive body horror and pitch black psychological horror, Starry Eyes is the moody debut of directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer. The story of Sarah (Alex Essoe), a struggling actress in Hollywood who travels down some dark alleys for her big break, the film turns the exploitative image of casting agents to a whole new level. Esso delivers a wildly unhinged performance as Sarah, a character that demands equal doses of insecurity and monstrous command. Bleak, masochistic, and deeply unsettling, Starry Eyes gets under your skin and stays there (until your fingernails and skin flake off).

‘Star Trek 3′ Lands Action-Packed Director!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/22/2014 - 19:50

With producer/writer-turned-director Robert Orci exiting the project, Paramount Pictures is finally being level-headed and is bringing some much needed action to the Star Trek franchise.

Deadline breaks the news this holiday week that Paramount Pictures, Skydance Productions and JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot just set Justin Lin to direct Star Trek 3, filling the biggest open directing assignment out there with the filmmaker credited with reviving the Fast and the Furious series!

Lin helmed a trio of the films that grossed $1.7 billion in worldwide box office.

This is huge news for a franchise that looks beautiful, but lacks intelligent design. Sure, JJ Abrams is a great director, but has been lacking in storytelling as of late. Lin brought both heart and great characters to an otherwise dull Fast & Furious franchise, while also jam-packing it with action. I think he can save Star Trek. Seriously. Big stuff here.

Bruce Campbell Reveals Full “Ash Vs Evil Dead” Details!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/22/2014 - 17:04

Last week Patrick Cooper teased you guys with a snippet from an upcoming interview with Bruce Campbell about the recently announced “Ash Vs Evil Dead” series over at Starz.

Now, we have the full interview that appeared over at EW, which breaks down what we can all expect from the mother fuckin’ Evil Dead television series!

Campbell, who will return as the infamous Ash, explains why now is the best time for the series. “The Walking Dead” cleared the path…

“We realized if we made another movie, frankly, it would probably be too expensive. But in the format of a TV show, we could give people exactly what they wanted and expand the character and the story even more.

“Ash would probably have more dialogue in one season than in three movies.

“He’ll have to become a more fleshed-out character as well. And we never burned ‘Evil Dead’ as a franchise out—it’s not like we did 13 of these movies. So we felt like, what the heck, let’s give it a try.

“‘Walking Dead’ is ‘Walking Dead,’ but we were kind of first. And I would say it’s about as big of a counterpart to ‘Walking Dead’ as you could program, because ‘Walking Dead’ is unrelentingly grim and hugely popular. We’re going to give people a little of the old fashioned slapstick – horror and comedy. The fans have been really good to us over the years. This is an opportunity to do something with full street cred. [Fan reaction to last year’s 'Evil Dead' remake] was all, “Yeah yeah, that was nice, fellas, but we still want the real deal.” This is it. Sam’s back. I’m back. [Executive producer Rob Tapert’s] back. Love it or hate it, this will be the real deal.”

A fun portion of the interview is when Campbell recounts the character Ash, and how he’s sort of a charming moron.

He continues being a trash-talking know-it-all who doesn’t really know anything. He’s the ultimate anti-hero. He’s a guy with no appreciable skills. He’s not a former Navy SEAL, he’s not a former CIA or FBI. He’s no special anything. He’s just a guy from S-Mart, you know? And think that’s part of what people relate too. All these super hero movies—I rather relate to a garage mechanic who gets into a sticky situation. That’s what I look forward to playing—a guy with horrible flaws. In Army of Darkness he can’t memorize three words and he’s responsible for the deaths of a 100 people—this is your lead character!”

“Ash Vs Evil Dead” won’t be a solo act as Ash will have two other characters to chirp with. I do like the idea of Ash being a father figure as it could give the series some heart – and suspense (if the person he’s watching over is in peril).

“It’s a threesome, which is a good number. Since it’s not cast yet, it would be silly to fully describe them. But they’re supposed to be two very good counterparts. One is a male-bonding situation; the other is father-figure deal, since Ash could have a daughter the same age as this character. Hopefully we’ll pull Ash out of his loner-veteran mode and get him back into being a human being again.”

There’s also some talk about the how the comedy and horror will be utilized, although it shouldn’t be a surprise to fans of the series.

“Something we’re doing is taking the horror parts very seriously. We’re not making fun of the horror aspects. And it’s going to cause Ash—this crabby middle-aged man who doesn’t want to get dragged back into this—a lot of problems. He’s not the Ash he used to be…

“There’s jokey horror and horror-horror. When there’s a presence in the room, it has to be dealt with because it’s an extremely dangerous and volatile situation. Humor may come out of it, but there’s nothing funny about a demon ripping somebody’s head off. And the beauty of Starz is there’s no content issues. Let’s face it: Fans want the carnage and the mayhem. So we intend to give them quite the explosion of viscera. Most of it directed at me, unfortunately.”

I think it’s important to note that Campbell understand the tone of the franchise better than anyone (except maybe the Raimis). The Evil Dead was horror-horror, and it eventually turned into a bit of a slapstick franchise. It came full circle with the remake, which we’re told could have a connection to the new series. So, the idea that it can be both horror-horror and a comedy suits the conceit well. Alls I know is that there about to bring the deadites into my life on a weekly basis – and I couldn’t be more excited!

You’ll find even more – where Campbell talks time travel, his character and making sure they don’t use too much CGI – by clicking here<?a>.

‘The Messenger’ Trailer Delivers a Final Meltdown!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/22/2014 - 15:34

Fabian M. just tipped us off to the official trailer for the UK release of David Blair’s The Messenger.

In addition, we also scored a handful of images from the psychological thriller in which the protagonist is being tormented.

Joely Richardson, Tamzin Merchant, and Robert Sheehan star.

We all want to believe in life after death and imagine loved ones looking over us, feel their presence in a draft of air, or the faint essence of a familiar smell. It’s what we crave, knowing they wait for us. But Jack isn’t waiting – they won’t leave him alone. Some might call Jack a troubled soul, at odds with the world, unable to conform. If you saw him in the pub – disheveled and drunk, talking to himself – you’d stay well away, think he was disturbed somehow, crazy. But Jack has a sharp mind and a razor wit. It’s not that he doesn’t want to live a normal life, he can’t. They won’t let him.

The Messenger is the story of Jack’s last melt down. A story of frustration and guilt; of love and betrayal; family and blame. How he chooses the victims he’ll help next, how he, stalker-like, becomes embroiled in their lives. In this case, Mark, a journalist brutally murdered in the local park and his television presenter wife, Sarah, to whom he’s desperate to say one last goodbye.

As Jack gets closer to Sarah, obsessed with passing on Mark’s message, he discovers their perfect life wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. They had secrets and lies just like any couple; the only problem is that Mark didn’t know about them. It’s the shock of that discovery that finally pushes Jack over the edge. But there is hope… When Jack’s estranged sister, Emma, gets in touch, Jack starts to remember the past they shared together and as the memories come flooding back, he starts to confront the truth about the death of his father. Maybe this time he can start to believe it wasn’t his fault? Maybe this time his father will finally turn up and set him free?

Rabid Monkeys Get Chainsawed In These Exclusive ‘[REC]4: Apocalypse’ Character Videos!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/22/2014 - 15:17

Bloody Disgusting has scored 3 exclusive character videos from Magnet Releasing’s [REC]4: Apocalypse, the fourth and final entry in the groundbreaking and terrifying [REC] horror series.

What’s great about these character videos is that they’re actually clips that introduce a trio of actors in the film in peril by the film’s possessed zombies! The best is when a pair of rabid monkeys get hit with a chainsaw-like weapon.

[REC]4 was directed by Jaume Balagueró, co-director of the first two films who returns for the climax of the series. Whereas [REC]3 took a slight tonal detour towards horror-comedy, [REC]4 is a return to the intense thrills and scares that helped make the [REC] franchise one of the most beloved in the horror genre.

Magnet will release the film day and date in theaters, on iTunes and On Demand everywhere on Friday, January 2nd, 2015.

“Several hours have passed since the terrible events that ravaged the old building in Barcelona. After the chaos of the first few moments, the army decided to intervene and an elite group of soldiers infiltrated the building in order to plant detonators and put an end to this nightmare once and for all. The mission is a success; quick and precise. Angela Vidal, the young television reporter who entered the building with the fireman just hours before, manages to make it out alive.

Bree Ogden’s Top 5 Body Horror Comics of 2014

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/22/2014 - 14:55

Body Horror can be an elusive genre. It’s something tantamount to horror, that helped define an entire generation of cinephiles. In the slasher era, the human body was the only thing sacred and worth protecting was your own body, but what happens when that one sacred thing turns against you. Body Horror takes the one thing we cherish the most, and makes it alien. Be it through a loss of health, a transformation, or the manifestation of something else, these are the best body horror comics of 2014.

Salma Hayek Goes Through Hell In These ‘Everly’ Images!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/22/2014 - 14:52

Enter if you dare…

Radius-TWC presents Everly, available on iTunes and On Demand January 23, 2015 and in limited theaters February 27, 2015.

Wrong Turn 2 and Knights of Badassdom‘s Joe Lynch directs the tale of a woman (played by Salma Hayek) forced to take arms against a sea of assassins dispatched by her mob boss ex-husband.

Thanks to Bloody regular Fabien M. we have a whopping 20+ new images from the madness that is Everly. It looks like a crazy violent action film in the vein of a Takashi Miike flick…

Togo Igawa, Masashi Fujimoto and Hiroyuki Watanabe round out the key cast.

“It’s Christmas time, but all is not well in the world of Everly (Salma Hayek). A call girl by trade, Everly has turned against her gangster boss Taiko (Hiroyuki Watanabe) and become a police informant. In response, Taiko has put out a hit on Everly and her family. Soon, every criminal in town wants to cash in. Everly’s survival instincts quickly kick in as she matches wits and firepower with Taiko and a seemingly endless stream of killers.”

‘Critters’ Return In This Awesome Fan Film!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/22/2014 - 14:36

Jordan Downey just hit me up with a link to watch his 6-minute long Critters fan film, “Critters: Bounty Hunter,” which is all kinds of impressive.

The short was created in hopes of catching the eye of Warner Bros. brass, who are working on a direct-to-web series through their Blue Ribbon Content.

Jordan, in our opinion, has earned a shot. We hope he gets to helm at least one episode.

‘Critters Bounty Hunter’ was completed from start to finish in under two months with a small budget and an even smaller crew. All in, a total of six people worked on the movie: Myself, Kevin Stewart, Ricky Fosheim, Nick Soole, Troy Smith and Gina Luciani. We shot for two nights at a house in Mammoth Lakes, California. The Critter puppet was built by Troy Smith who worked with us on both ThanksKilling movies. Our crew handled everything from building the bounty hunter costume, learning the VFX required to pull off the glowing head, scoring, title cards, sound design, etc. We’re proud of what we pulled off with limited resources and can’t wait to share this with everyone. Turn up the volume and hit HD – We hope you enjoy our fun little take on Critters!

[TV] New Photos From Marvel & Netflix’s “Daredevil”

bloody disgusting - Mon, 12/22/2014 - 14:19

We’ve been sitting here for days, no weeks awaiting more photos of Charlie Cox in the titular role in Netflix’s “Daredevil.” The gritty series will follow the street level hero in his rise to glory, and what it’s like to become a “regular” hero. We already have people like Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and this will be the first time that one of them really gets the spotlight.

I know that Daredevils is by no means “regular” but here, he’s street level. He’s not dealing with super powered mole-men, or any of Spiderman’s rogues gallery. I’m excited to see what this super-powered sight-seer takes on in this first season. So far what we’ve seen is damn near perfect.

We’ve borrowed the photos from Entertainment Weekly.

Marvel’s “Daredevil” is set to debut next year on Netflix.
