"Teen Wolf" Season 4 Overview:
In Season 4, still healing from tragic losses, Scott (Posey), Stiles (O'Brien), Lydia (Roden), and Kira (Cho) begin a new semester of school with more human worries than supernatural, while also trying to help their new friend Malia (Hennig) integrate back into society. But Kate Argent’s surprising resurrection brings a new threat to Beacon Hills along with the emergence of another mysterious enemy known simply as The Benefactor.
If you're anything like me, you've been wondering when you're going to be able to see Jim Jarmusch's vampire flick Only Lovers Left Alive (review), which has to date only been given a limited theatrical release. That all changes this August, when the bloodsuckers come home. Read on for release details!
From the Press Release
Sony Pictures Classics’ visually poetic love story from director Jim Jarmusch (Broken Flowers), ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, will debut on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD August 19 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The film is the apotheosis of American independent film and underground music, full of Jarmusch’s laconic sense of humor. ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE stars Oscar winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, 2008, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role) and Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) alongside co-stars Mia Wasikowska (Lawless), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), and John Hurt (Harry Potter).
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, this critically well received fan favorite puts an original spin on a well-worn genre – these vampires are mature, highbrow, and charmingly ultra-cool. ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE was selected for official competition at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and enjoyed critical acclaim at various film festivals worldwide, including the Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, and New York Film Festival. It was also chosen as an official selection at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
Special features on the film’s Blu-ray and DVD release include never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes as well as an extended version of Yasmine Hamdan performing "Hal." Also included is the “Traveling at Night with Jim Jarmusch” documentary, taking fans behind the scenes for a portrait of the director at work on his latest film.
Only Lovers Left Alive is the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Hiddleston) and Eve (Swinton). Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature, and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance but still retain their innate wildness. Their love story has endured several centuries, but their debauched idyll is threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree little sister, Ava (Wasikowska), who hasn’t yet learned to tame her wilder instincts. Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science, and the mysteries of everlasting love.

“This football season, Hogeye High’s Warriors and cheerleaders are out for blood. Unfortunately, someone is out for theirs, and they’ll be forced to take one for the team. After the big Halloween football match, the students are joined by an uninvited guest dressed as their high school mascot armed with a bow and arrow, a battle-axe, and an insatiable appetite for butchery. Soon, they find themselves fighting for more than the winning score as terror becomes the name of the game.“
Adult film star Channon Rose has dealt with lots of sticky substances over her career, but we don't think ectoplasm was on her agenda. In any event, Ms. Rose apparently suffered a bout of possession that was caught on film!
From the Press Release
Linda Blair’s head-rotating, pea soup-vomiting portrayal of demonic possession is the stuff of movie legend, but the events that form the basis of The Exorcist and the book of the same name were actually inspired by a month-long demon-purging over a young boy in 1949.
Whether you believe in possessions—demon or otherwise—or not, they have been around since ancient times, and so has our fascination with them and the exorcisms that cast these demons, imagined or real, back into the darkness they came from.
Imagine a movie with all of the ingredients that has made Paranormal Activity a five-time box office success, that spooky “home footage” allure of witnessing a possession unfold, only far more frightening because This Isn’t A Movie is the real deal. It is the unplanned, unscripted, raw footage of a real life possession, exactly as it occurred.
Channon Rose and Travis Dean aren’t filmmakers or seeking fame via a pseudo reality show. Channon is a beautiful print model with her own beauty blog; Travis comes from the corporate world with an 8-5 job. Since the beginning of their relationship in 2012, they’ve been capturing their good times and getaways on Channon’s handheld camera, and their trip to Big Bear started out like all the rest: fun, silly, and lighthearted. But something unexplained happened to Channon, unleashing a nightmarish experience and a home movie they’ll never forget.
The question most people will ask is: How do we know it’s real? According to Channon, “It’s pretty obvious from the minute you start watching that this is something real. The whole experience was pretty terrifyingm and the only way to describe it is a possession of some kind.”
Travis adds, “Imagine seeing someone you know and love acting so strange and eerie with no explanation or ability to help them. Seeing Channon literally banging her head against the wall of our cabin hard enough to really hurt herself; she kept answering the front door of our secluded cabin, and of course, nobody was ever there. What freaked me out the most was when she completely disappeared and I ended up finding her in the woods with no idea of how she ended up there. That’s when I drove her to the emergency room.”
This Isn’t A Movie invites viewers to explore what an actual possession is—what it looks like up-close, unedited, and without Hollywood’s special effects. It is a scary journey because it is real. There are no actors going home at the end of the day... just a couple who never imagined this could happen to them.
25 years ago today I sat alone in an empty theater – as a nine-year-old boy – watching Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters II.
Thus, we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the sequel to the smash-hit horror comedy that starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver.
In it, the discovery of a massive river of ectoplasm and a resurgence of spectral activity allows the staff of Ghostbusters to revive the business.
The sequel, which critics weren’t fond of, was still a success taking in $215M worldwide at the box office. A third film should have happened by now, yet we sit here waiting like a bunch of jackasses. I have my proton pack on and ready to go. Sony, what’s up?!
Scott Spiegel has had his hands in many different cookie jars throughout his unique career, most notably serving as the co-writer of Evil Dead 2. Up next he's putting on his producer hat and sending us all straight to Hell.
Some quick casting news has arrived for Welcome to Purgatory as Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Jillian Murray (pictured; The Graves, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero), Nathan Jones, Jack O’Halloran, Tony Cook, Tory Kittles and Stephen Marcus are set to appear in the film directed by Gene Fallaize.
According to the IMDb, a sequel, Welcome to Purgatory II: The Journey to Hell, is already planned with Fallaize back at the helm.
Check out the artwork below.
Welcome to Purgatory follows three new arrivals – Willis, Taylor (Cook), and Danni (Murray) – as they navigate this fresh vision of the Afterlife, helped along the way by trusty Guardian Paul. They find the afterlife in ruins amidst a growing war between Good and Evil. All the rules of the Afterlife have been broken, and they must find a way to make things right before Heaven is ruined for the rest of time.
Indie developer Team Junkfish is currently working on their first foray into the horror genre with Monstrum, a procedurally generated horror game where you’re chased all over a creepy, derelict ship by what resembles the fiery offspring of a Big Daddy and William Birkin.
Much like in Outlast and Slender, you’re completely unarmed, so the only option when ole Jack-o-Lantern Face is near is to run, hide, and desperately hope he doesn’t use his freakishly huge arm to drag you kicking and screaming from your chosen hiding spot.
I recently had the opportunity to dive into the Monstrum alpha, watch me spend some time with it below.

Universal Pictures just sent us a second one-sheet from Dracula Untold (formerly Dracula: Year Zero), the Gary Shore-directed version of Bram Stoker’s novella, in theaters October 17, 2013.
Starring Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Zach McGowan, Samantha Barks, Thor Kristjansson and Art Parkinson, the film was shot in Belfast last year.
In the film, “Luke Evans is starring as the most famous of vampires in an origin story that sees a Transylvanian prince risk eternal damnation in order to save his wife and son from a Turkish horde. Barks will play a figure in Eastern European folk tales known as a baba yaga, a beautiful young woman who turns into a savage witch. Kristjansson will play Bright Eyes, an Eastern European taken as a slave as a young boy and now a vicious assassin in the Ottoman Army. Parkinson will play Dracula’s son, named Ingeras.“
The new poster reminds me of the work done for Warner Bros. Batman trilogy, although it works well for this as Dracula, too, is associated with bats.
No matter what state you live in, there's a horror movie connected to it that you can call your own due to the fact that it takes place there. Texans of course have The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, while Pennsylvania is Night of the Living Dead country.
As an example of the variety of locales horror flicks have taken us to, a fun little infographic map we just spotted over on Imgur assigns one specific movie to each state in the country, based on where they were set.
The movies range from the iconic to the relatively obscure, and the image essentially serves as a map of the United States of Horror.
Check out the map below, and then drop a comment letting us know which state you live in and which horror movie that takes place in that state is your favorite!

The supernatural comedy series “Deadbeat” arrives on DVD (plus Digital) August 26 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
Starring Tyler Labine (TV’s “Reaper”)the show also features Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder), Lucy DeVito (TV’s “Melissa & Joey)and Cat Deeley (the host of TV’s “So You Think You Can Dance”). From the production company that produced 12 Years a Slave and Kick-Ass, “Deadbeat” has been declared a “disarmingly funny” (Variety) and “hilarious and heartwarming” (New York Post) comedy. Available exclusively at Target, the “Deadbeat” DVD includes three bonus featurettes.
“Kevin Pacalioglu (Labine) may have no money and no clue, but he can see dead people, so that’s pretty cool. Faced with a constant stream of stubborn spirits, Pac goes to whatever lengths require the least amount of effort to help New York City’s most frivolous ghosts finish their unfinished business.“
Universal's latest adaptation of Bram Stoker's most popular novella has undergone several changes on its way into our lives, first being renamed from Dracula: Year Zero to Dracula Untold. Nevertheless, it's finally on its way, and we have a pair of posters and the first image!
The film stars Luke Evans as the titular bloodsucker alongside Sarah Gadon, Samantha Barks, Thor Kristjansson, Art Parkinson, Zach McGowan, and Dominic Cooper.
Universal’s dramatic horror movie tells the origin story of the most famous of vampires. Michael De Luca is producing the project, and commercials helmer Gary Shore is making his directorial debut on the picture.
Look for it in theaters October 17, 2014.

If you guys didn’t know, it’s about time for a vacation! Not sure where to go? Not sure if you prefer the woods or the beach? Not sure if you want to stay in the country or leave the country? No problem! I’m here to help you. The list below reveals the 15 Worst Horror Destinations. With this, you are guaranteed to think twice about your vacation plans, and it may even encourage you to stay home where things are normal and a little less life-threatening.
12. SLOVAKIA – HOSTEL (2005)
It’s ok to meet new people along the way. These encounters may lead to new things and perhaps new friendships. However, if you don’t want to wake up in a dungeon room with a man who drills holes into your chest or legs… bypass these new friendships. I’m not a fan of rap, but Drake said it himself, “No new friends.”
11. WOODSBORO, CALIFORNIA – SCREAM (1996)
Just because you know the rules of horror doesn’t mean you should go here. Plus, if you really know the rules, then you would know that the rules are always getting switched up!
10. CAMP ARAWAK – SLEEPAWAY CAMP (1983)
This one particularly goes to those parents who want to get rid of the children for the summer, even if it means sending them to camp where a psycho with sinister intentions is on the loose. We all know how this one ends. Young women end up having male genitalia or worse, raped by a hot curling iron. Either way, stay away, and certainly don’t send your children there.
9. WEST VIRGINIA – WRONG TURN (2003)
If you get cheated on by your significant other and your friends know, just make sure they don’t suggest you all go to the woods in West Virginia. Why not just take your friend to a bar or club to drink or dance their troubles away?
7. RACCOON CITY – RESIDENT EVIL (2002)
Don’t even think about visiting a city with a company named ‘Umbrella’ in it or around it… unless you simply like battling flesh-eating creatures, creatures that crawl on the ceilings, or worst, an out of control supercomputer with a little British girl’s voice.
6. COASTAL TOWN OF ANTONIO BAY – THE FOG (1980)
Yeah, finishing towns that were built a 100 years ago seems pretty awesome. But what happens when a killer fog emerges, containing dead zombie spirits that seek revenge for their deaths?
5. TEXAS – TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974)
Yes, THE whole state! You never know when someone with a chain-saw will jump out, gut you like a pig, then eat you like one. Play it safe and avoid the whole state!
4. AN OLD REMOTE CABIN – EVIL DEAD (2013)
Again with a cabin in the woods! If you want to help your sister or friend recover from their heroin addiction or worse, musical addiction, don’t do it in a remote cabin in the woods. Have we not learned that there are evil forces out there?
You’re probably wondering, what place is left to vacation? Nowhere! So, you might as well stay home and watch horror movies all summer. You’re welcome!
What would be on your 15 Worst Horror Destinations?

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment shared with Bloody an exclusive clip from Joy Ride 3: Road Kill now on Digital HD, a day before its June 17 Blu-ray and DVD date.
The new sequel finds director Declan O’Brien (Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines) in the driver’s seat for another deadly detour.
In the third film, “The nightmare begins when a group of young street racers take a desolate shortcut on their way to the Road Rally 1000. But a chance encounter with Rusty soon turns deadly as he stalks, taunts, and tortures his next victims with deranged delight. It’s a full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal chill ride packed with killer twists and turns!“
Starring Ken Kirzinger (Freddy vs. Jason) as the infamous Rusty Nail, the Joy Ride 3: Road Kill Blu-ray and DVD is loaded with extra features including a variety of deleted scenes, featurettes, behind-the-scenes content, and a gruesome unrated version of the film. They include: Pre-Vis Sequences, Road Rage: The Blood, Sweat and Gears of Joy Ride 3, Riding Shotgun with Declan: Director’s DIE-aries, Finding Large Marge and Audio Commentary.
Perhaps no other rock band in the history of music has had such an impact on future generations as The Beatles. Their fusion of pop, rock, and psychedelic paved the way for countless artists and their music is still widely regarded as some of the best ever written. And now people will be able to hear the band as close to their original sound as possible with an upcoming 14-LP vinyl box set that features “…the band’s nine UK albums, the American-compiled Magical Mystery Tour and the Mono Masters collection of non-album tracks will be released in mono on 180-gram vinyl LPs with faithfully replicated artwork“.
The albums have been mastered for vinyl from the original tapes that at Abbey Road without any digital technology, keeping the signal chain as pure as possible. They made great use of notes left by the original engineers. The end result is perhaps the most pristine version of the band’s work since they were first released.
Below is a short film about the upcoming release, which will be coming out this September.

This year’s E3 didn’t have as many surprises as I anticipated, one of the exceptions being the out-of-the-blue reveal of Dead Island 2, which is now in the extremely capable hands of Spec Ops: The Line developer Yager. They’ve made it pretty clear already that this next entry in the very popular zombie bash ‘em up franchise will be a radical departure from what fans have come to expect from the series, including the tone, which eschews the serious nature of the first two games in favor of a sillier, more over-the-top style.
Some early previews are coming out of E3, so I’ve decided to scour a few for some new information on Dead Island 2. Much of the game is still under wraps, but it looks like Yager is determined to mix things up in regards to the combat.
For starters, that stamina meter? That’s no more.
On top of that, Dead Island 2 will introduce a new set of tools for players to use to dispatch the undead hordes. The new motorized weapon type will include powerful weapons that are fueled by gasoline players will need to scavenge from the environment. They’re stronger than the other weapon sets, but they bring with them the potential drawback of being extraordinarily loud, so they could attract unwanted attention.
Like cats? You do? Really? Okay then. I suppose you’ll be excited to know that Yager has motion captured a cat for the game — an apparent first for video games — so an NPC’s feline companions can look and act more realistically. I’m guessing that means it’ll spend most of the game out on its own, sleeping or doing whatever it is cats do.
