'Super Duper Alice Cooper' Documentary Hitting Several Cities For Limited Theatrical Run

bloody disgusting - Wed, 03/19/2014 - 09:00

Hailed as the first ever ‘doc opera’, Super Duper Alice Cooper is an soon-to-be-released documentary that focuses on shock horror rock legend Alice Cooper. The documentary, directed by Scot McFadyen, Sam Dunn, and Reginald Harkema, mixes documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera to create a one of a kind experience.

The synopsis reads, {The film is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock n’ roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60’s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s to his triumphant comeback as 80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s’ souls. Alice’s story is told not only by the man himself, but through exclusive interviews with members of the original Alice Cooper band, Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon, and Dee Snider.

The film will be making its premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and will then have a limited theatrical run at several theaters nationwide beginning April 30th. A special pre-recorded “Keep Calm & Just Ask Alice” Q&A and welcome from Alice will be included exclusively with each screening.

'Ghostbusters' Sequel Seeks New Director...

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 20:58

In some official news, Deadline reports that Sony Pictures is finally eyeing an early 2015 production start in New York on its next installment of Ghostbusters.

There is a major change, though. In the wake of the death of his close friend and original Ghostbuster Harold Ramis, Ivan Reitman has decided he won’t direct the film, after all. Explains the site, instead, Reitman will help Amy Pascal find a new director to take over what everyone hopes will reboot what the studio considers to be one of its most important franchises.

The site breaks down the film’s long-hindered history:

“In all the years Sony has tried to get this film up and running, Reitman has been the most stable part of the equation, long locked to direct his third installment of the film. This included the long campaign to get Bill Murray to reprise his signature role, when it became impossible to even get him to read a script that Sony, Reitman and their other architect Dan Aykroyd were happy with. It has been clear for a while that Murray wasn’t going to be part of this, and momentum has been building. Then Ramis, a catalyst for some of the biggest film comedies of the 1970s and ’80s, passed away. That has changed everything.”

A lot of things happened in the last few months, the most significant of which was the passing of Harold, who was a very good friend who was extraordinarily influential in my career. We did five movies together including both Ghostbusters,” Reitman explained.

Reitman confirmed the Murray chase, one that encompassed not one but two scripts.

The first was done by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, and me, Harold and Dan helped them on it,” Reitman said. “It was a really good script, but then it became clear that Bill really didn’t want to do another Ghostbusters and that it was literally impossible to find him to speak to for the year or two we tried to get it going. When Bill finally…well, he never actually said no, but he never said yes, so there was no way to make that film. We decided to start over again, and I started working with Etan Cohen, with Dan lending a helping hand. Harold got sick about three years ago, and we kept hoping he would get better. I kept pushing forward on the Etan Cohen and we now have a draft that is very good, that the studio is very excited about.

It’s a version of Ghostbusters that has the originals in a very minor role,” he continued. “When I came back from Harold’s funeral, it was really moving and it made me think about a lot of things. I’d just finished directing Draft Day, which I’m really happy with and proud of. Working on a film that is smaller and more dramatic was so much fun and satisfying. I just finally met with Amy and Doug Belgrad when I got back. I said I’d been thinking about it for weeks, that I’d rather just produce this Ghostbusters. I told them I thought I could help but let’s find a really good director and make it with him. So that’s what we’ve agreed will happen. I didn’t want all kinds of speculation about what happened with me, that is the real story.

Reitman said they are already working on a short list of directors they’ll go out to, and then it will be time to find the new cast. “I’m not going to say how many Ghostbusters there will be in the new cast, but we are determined to retain the spirit of the original film, and I am pleased that all of this seems to have happened organically,” he said. “I’m hoping we can get started by the fall, set in New York, but given the logistics and the stuff that happens, the beginning of 2015 seems more likely.

Image Gallery for True Crime Thriller 'Devil's Knot'

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 20:14

Set for release on May 9 is Image Entertaiment’s crime thriller Devil’s Knot, which now has an official trailer, poster and image gallery.

Devil’s Knot, about the West Memphis Three killings, stars Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon. The film, which received mostly mixed reviews at Toronto, is based on Mara Leveritt’s book “Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three.”

“Devil’s Knot tells the compelling story of three teenagers accused of the brutal 1993 murder of three 8-year old boys in Memphis, Ark. – two of them sentenced to life imprisonment and one to death. The film explores the lives of deeply misunderstood outsiders, their families and communities, and their darkest fantasies. The conviction of the West Memphis Three – Damien Echols, Jesse Misskelley, Jr., and Jason Baldwin – riled the American justice system, shocked a tightly knit religious town and outraged the nation.

The film was written by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and Paul Harris Boardman, who also produced alongside Elizabeth Fowler, Richard Saperstein, Clark Peterson and Christopher Woodrow of Worldview Entertainment.

The Maligned 'Diablo III' Auction House Is No More

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 16:26

Rejoice, for the much-maligned Diablo III auction house is officially no more. Blizzard has made good on their promise to remove the controversial feature ahead of the release of Reaper of Souls, the game’s first single-player expansion.

If you’re worried about any epic loot you may have in there, Blizzard has provided a helpful FAQ that should answer your questions regarding the transition. If you have anything pending, you may want to get it taken care of quickly.

“All active auctions will expire as normal following the shutdown of the gold and real-money auction houses on Tuesday, March 18. Once the shutdown is complete, items will either be delivered to the current highest bidder or returned to the seller, appearing in each player’s Completed tab. Unclaimed gold will also appear in the Completed tab. Players will be able to claim gold and items and from this tab until June 24, 2014.”

Now that the auction is house has finally been shuttered and the loot system upgraded, we can all sit back and enjoy the grim new expansion when it arrives on PC and Mac on March 25.

Check This Band Out: Mire

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 16:00

If you’re a fan of Tool, Karnivool, A Perfect Circle, Dead Letter Circus, and similar sounding bands, then you should be pointing your ears towards Montreal, QC band Mire, who just released their new album Inward Outward as a Name Your Price offer on Bandcamp. The band’s latest album features 10 tracks that were based on the band’s personal experiences ranging from the study of cognitive science to a military stint in Afghanistan.

Vocalist JP LaChapelle comments, “Interpreted through our fingers, tongued and toe tips, this album which we’ve been working on for 2 years at totally different points in our lives, demonstrates the fan of emotions of 5 individuals’ experience. The craft is the loom into which our soil-tending, sun-vising and pest-warding efforts bear fruit. Love for the fate of man and the anger to defend it. Overwhelmed with a sense of innate creativity, we all curb our nature to the structures put in place for our short lives; whether building an enterprise, community or institution of any kind. MIRE’s decided to make music. Filtered as pure as possible, our passion rendered this product. Our maiden album expresses the plight of an impeached animal nature, faced with the philosophy of man’s fate run through questionable funnels. Throughout our creative process, we’ve experienced different stages and shed skins. The 5 colors we shine combine through the prism of ‘Inward Outward’ to produce the first of MIRE’s own hues. Being able to walk one’s own path is its own reward and we five musicians feel incredibly fortunate to have seized the chance to create this album. That’s what we celebrate every time we hear it.

Head on below to listen to the new album as well as watch their video for “Limitless Pt. 2″.

[Album Review] Wolves Like Us 'Black Soul Choir'

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 09:00

On Black Soul Choir, the new album from Norwegian rockers Wolves Like Us, the final song is called “Thanatos Wins Again”, a brooding yet rather beautiful track that is almost saturated in thick, almost fuzzy distortion. Singer/guitarist Larsh alternates between hauntingly speaking the lyrics and roaring forth while the music hypnotically swirls and rumbles beneath.

Thanatos, the Greek god of non-violent death, might very well be the perfect deity that the band could have used as part of their own mythos. While undoubtedly heavy and rough around the edges, there is never a time when I felt their music has been inaccessible. Rather, it’s the complete opposite. They introduce this style of music, their so-called “Dark Rock”, and it never feels abrasive. Rather, it wraps its melancholic arms around you, embracing you, pulling you gently into an album that is as exciting as it is rewarding.

Opening with “Days Of Ignorance”, which clocks in at just under a minute and 30 seconds, the album begins with a frenzied burst of energy. It gives a brief moment to allow the listener to catch their breath before diving into the thrilling “Three Poisons”. “I Don’t Need To Be Forgiven” is one of the longer tracks on the album, allowing the band the take their time and demonstrate all the qualities that make them such a formidable band.

Special attention needs to be given to “Lovescared”, a gentle, sublime track that shows the softer side of the band. It also demonstrates just how strong vocalist Larsh can be, especially when it comes to his vocal harmonies. Another track that takes its time and is a perfect example of the unique instrumental tones (seriously, the guitars and bass sound so lush) is “We Were Blood”, which features a tremendous climax build up.

What’s so great about this band is that they obviously communicate incredibly well as a band. They know when certain instruments need to hold back for the betterment of the song. No one shows off unnecessarily, allowing the sum to do the talking versus the parts.

Something about the atmosphere of this album makes me want to listen to it while walking through a dark forest or while sitting on some Irish hillside with steel gray clouds looming overhead. It has a mysteriously alluring aura, one that just refused to let me go. I started this album and, before I knew what had happened, I had listened to it several times in a row without noticing. Each spin brought something new, something unheard.

The Final Word: I absolutely adored Wolves Like Us‘ debut album, Late Love. Since that came out I have been eagerly awaiting a second album and Black Soul Choir lived up to my expectations. It’s a fantastic album from a band who hopefully have a long, incredible career ahead of them.

This Horror Short Is Best Experienced With The Lights On

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 00:42

Usually, I’d say you should watch something like this in the dark, with the volume cranked up nice and loud, and while the latter still applies, I might suggest you keep the lights on for this freaky horror short. Lights Out is the work of Swedish filmmaker David Sandberg. At just under three minutes, it packs in an impressive number of jump scares and moments that will have the hairs on the back of your neck on end.

Arch Enemy Loses Angela Gossow But Gains Alissa White-Gluz From The Agonist Who Also Get A New Singer

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/17/2014 - 20:48

Okay, that headline is a bit weird and I’m aware of it but roll with me, okay? Here’s how it works: Angela Gossow is now the ex-vocalist of melodic metal band Arch Enemy as she has decided to focus on band and artist management so that she can spend more time with her family. She has officially been replaced by Alissa White-Gluz, who was the vocalist for The Agonist, who now have Vicky Psarakis as their leadwoman. WHEW! I felt like a circus performer juggling all that information around!

The Agonist is hard at work on new material as is Arch Enemy. Both will tentatively release a new studio album this year. Head below for comments from Gossow, White-Gluz, and Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott.

Angela Gossow comments:
Dear Arch Enemy fans, this is not easy to tell you…I have decided to step down from being Arch Enemy’s voice of anger. After 13 years of pure fucking metal, 6 studio albums and countless tours through five continents, I feel the need to enter a different phase in my life, be with my family and pursue other interests. I will however remain business manager for Arch Enemy, and I will continue to develop my artist management roster.
I am staying true to my heavy metal roots, just leaving the spotlight so to speak. I am passing the torch to the super talented Alissa White-Gluz, whom I’ve known as a dear friend and a superb vocalist for many years. I always thought she deserved a chance to shine – and now she’s getting it. Just like I got that chance back in 2001.

I want to thank all Arch Enemy fans, our labels Century Media (worldwide) and Trooper Entertainment (Japan), our dedicated road crew, and in particular Michael, Daniel and Sharlee for their love and support throughout all these years. It’s been one hell of a ride! We conquered every situation, made it through thick & thin together in the most exciting and rewarding time of my life. Thank you all for being there with me on stage, in front of the stage, and backstage. You have touched my heart, and I hope I was able to give something back to you. I am grateful for the wonderful memories – I will cherish them forever!

I am looking forward to the next decade of Arch Enemy madness! Right now I am listening through rough mixes of the new studio album and I am blown away! 2014 will see a renewed Arch Enemy at the top of their game. I am proud to be part of this Arch Enemy chapter, albeit in a different way – revving up the engines behind the scenes. I hope to see you in front of the stage; I will join you there this time. Let the killing begin, once again!

Alissa White-Gluz comments:
I am very honored and happy to announce a new chapter in my life and musical career beginning now; I have joined forces with one of my all-time favorite and globally respected bands, Arch Enemy. ‘Wages of Sin’ was the first metal album I ever bought, and it was love at first listen. It is not often that you get a phone call from your favorite band asking you to join! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such amazingly talented musicians whom I also consider great friends. I look forward to being able to write and perform at a whole new level now with Arch Enemy! Music is forever, metal is limitless and this is only the beginning!

Michael Amott:
We are eternally grateful to Angela for all her passion, hard work and talent. Her legacy is tremendous and will always be a big part of the band’s history. We feel great pride in what has been achieved in the past, but also look forward to new battles and new victories. We welcome Alissa with open arms – and we hope you will have open ears. We might have just created our most wicked metal opus yet with our upcoming album ‘War Eternal’!

This 'eXistenZ' Controller Should Come With Complimentary Wet Wipes

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/17/2014 - 20:37

This one-of-a-kind controller is just as unique as the one we’re giving away, though I’d venture to say that it’s roughly twice as gooey. It’s the work of Vicky Knoop, a San Francisco based artist who came up with the idea after watching David Cronenberg’s body horror film eXistenZ. I love the controller, even though part of me wonders how many matches of Halo 4 it will take before it becomes sentient and tries to merge with my consciousness. Pictures after the jump!

Some of these are familiar variations on stuff we’ve more or less seen before, but – by my count – there’s some brand new stuff in here. Especially when it comes to the gore shots.

John Jarratt returns as the killer Mick Taylor, with Ryan Corr, Shannon Ashlyn and Philipe Klaus also starring in this sequel to the popular Sundance slasher originally released by Dimension Films. Wolf Creek 2 gets a VOD release on April 17, with a theatrical run set for May 16!

Directed again by Greg McLean, “Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, backpackers Rutger, Katarina, and Paul visit the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes a horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the region ever wants to meet; Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).

As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic white knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one else has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Talks Terminator: Genesis; Film Has T2 Vibe

Dread Central - Mon, 03/17/2014 - 19:36

We are all praying that Terminator: Genesis can get this once incredible franchise back on track, and if its star Arnold Schwarzenegger has anything to say about it, it's gonna do just that!

Collider caught up with Arnold to get the scoop! "The way it reads, it has the same feel of Terminator 2. It’s big. There’s hardcore action and it has some really great visual effects in there, but not over the top. It’s not a Thor type of movie, even though it’s the same director. It has good special effects, but just enough to say, 'Wow, where did that come from? How did they do that?'"

The four-month shoot is set to begin in April, with the film being primarily shot in New Orleans. A July 2015 release is planned at this time.

Jai Courtney will play Kyle Reese alongside Emilia Clarke's Sarah Connor and Jason Clarke's John Connor.

Skydance and Annapurna will co-finance along with Paramount with David Ellison producing for Skydance and Megan Ellison producing for Annapurna. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script, and Alan Taylor will direct.
