Synopsis:
The Sins of Dracula centers around Billy (Dufault). As the star of his church choir, there’s nothing that brings Billy more joy than the opportunity to sing for an audience. However, as his desire to perform grows, the stalwart youth finds that waiting until Sunday to get his fix just simply isn’t enough. Going against the advice of his pastor, Billy follows his girlfriend into the world of secular entertainment, joining the local community theatre troupe. There, Billy is introduced to a whole new world, where his fellow thespians dabble in drugs, sexual perversion, and table-top gameplay. Yet, for all the newly minted depravities Billy encounters, none could prepare him for the darkest truth of them all: The theatre group is actually a front for a Satanic cult intent on raising Dracula from the grave! It’s a world where Sondheim is Satan, Broadway means blasphemy, and where taking the stage just might mean curtains... for your eternal soul.

Three Winters “Hazard” Song Premiere (Exclusive)

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 11:00

We’re teaming up with the Norwegian retro synthwave group Three Winters to bring you an exclusive song premiere for their track “Hazard”, which comes from their upcoming album Chroma (out this month via Termo Records).

Band member Anders B. states:

Hazard is one of our earliest tracks. And one of our most essential ones. It helped us stake out a direction during a time when we didn’t really feel we had one. This is our DNA.

The group’s mix of Giallo-esque melodies and John Carpenter styled synths makes for an intriguing, engaging music that I’m 100% a fan of and this track showcases that. Taking it’s time to build up, with brooding syncopated bass notes, huge, reverbed snare hits, and sci-fi pads, this is a slow burner, so settle in and enjoy!

Check out the track below and make sure to check out Anders’ Top 10 Horror Themes!

Chroma track list:
1 Atrocities
2 At the Centre of Dystopia
3 Daybreak Monuments
4 Animism
5 A Thousand Piercing Lights
6 Aeon Surveillance [mkII]
7 Hazard
8 Rapture
9 Amnesia

A Teenage Hunter Arises in Author Dave Zeltserman's The Boy Who Killed Demons

Dread Central - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 10:30

“Have I mentioned before that I hate demons?” asks Henry Dudlow, the unlikely teenage hero of Dave Zeltserman's The Boy Who Killed Demons. Intrigued? Then read on to learn more about the upcoming novel.

Its release date is October 16th, but first Dave (pictured right) is attending the upcoming New York Comic Con (October 9-12) in The Overlook Press booth. Before he heads to the Big Apple, we'll be chatting with him about The Boy Who Killed Demons so look for our Q&A soon. In the meantime check out the synopsis and cover art below.

From the Press Release:
Like the fictional heroes who have come before him, Henry Dudlow didn’t ask for the gift (or as he sees it, curse) forced upon him. At age 13, when he should have been reading comic books, goofing off with friends, and thinking about high school, Henry discovered that he sees people differently. Instead of his mild-mannered neighbor looking like an average middle-aged man, Henry saw a disturbing creature, a demon.

Now, at age 15, he has alienated himself from his parents, his grades and social life have suffered, and he has thrown himself into the translation and study of ancient texts on the supernatural—not your average teenager’s extracurricular activity.

The Boy Who Killed Demons is written entirely as Henry’s diary, serving the purpose of recording the truth about demons in case he doesn’t survive, as well as documenting the regular dangers of high school: angry parents, a budding romance, and the school’s resident bully. When children begin disappearing throughout the Boston area, Henry’s unasked for calling challenges him to face what his ability allows only him to do: begin hunting demons. In a race against time, Henry must stop a band of demons from opening the gates to hell, all while keeping his sacred duty a secret from everyone in his life.

Filled with the heroism, teen angst, and humor of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Spider-Man, The Boy Who Killed Demons is the latest entry into the unlikely hero canon. Zeltserman’s third horror novel moves with the same heart-racing pace as his previous thrillers and expands to reach a younger audience through its teenage protagonist. This is a book that will scare teens and adults alike, all while reminding them of the perils of growing up.

Synopsis:
The setting is quiet Newton, Massachussetts, where nothing ever happens. Nothing, that is, until two months after Henry Dudlow’s 13th birthday, when his neighbor, Mr. Hanley, suddenly starts to look... different. While everyone else sees a balding man with a beer belly, Henry suddenly sees a nasty, bilious, rage-filled demon.

Once Henry catches on to the real Mr. Hanley, he starts to see demons all around him, and his boring, adolescent life is transformed. There’s no more time for friends or sports or the lovely Sally Freeman; instead Henry must work his way through ancient texts and hunt down the demons before they steal any more innocent children. And if hunting demons is hard at any age, it’s borderline impossible when your parents are on your case, your grades are getting worse, and you can’t tell anyone about your chosen mission.

Melanie Martinez’s “Carousel” Featured In ‘American Horror Story: Freakshow’ Teasers

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 10:15

Melanie Martinez is joining the freakshow!

The Voice alum’s track “Carousel” is being featured prominently in the teasers for Freakshow, the upcoming fourth season of the American Horror Story franchise. You can stream the full track below.

“Carousel” originally comes from Martinez’s EP Dollhouse (iTunes).

Lyrics:

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I’m glued on tight to this carousel

Come, come one, come all,
you must be this tall
to ride this ride at the carnival

Oh, come, take my hand
and run though playland
so high, too high at the carnival

And it’s all fun and games,
’til somebody falls in love,
but you’ve already bought a ticket,
and there’s no turning back now

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I’m glued on tight to this carousel

This horse is too slow,
we’re always this close,
almost, almost, we’re a freakshow

Right, right when I’m near,
it’s like you disappeared,
where’d you go? My dear, you’re a freakshow!

And it’s all fun and games,
’til somebody falls in love,
but you’ve already bought a ticket,
and there’s no turning back now

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I’m glued on tight to this carousel

Why did you steal my cotton candy heart?
you threw it in this damn coin slot,
and now I’m stuck, I’m stuck,
riding, riding, riding

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I’m glued on tight to this carousel

Doctor Mordrid to Soon Be Casting His Spells Again on Blu-ray

Dread Central - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 10:15

The 1992 Full Moon flick Doctor Mordrid starring Jeffrey Combs was originally intended to be a Doctor Strange movie. Unfortunately, the rights reverted back to Marvel before Charles Band could get the film made.

With an actual Doctor Strange movie in the works, it seems fitting Band would give his pseudo-take on the character the Blu-ray treatment.

Re-Animator’s Jeffrey Combs dons his finest Doctor Strange lounge-wear to play enigmatic interdimensional sorcerer/New York landlord Dr. Anton Mordrid, sworn to protect our world by guarding the gates of the fourth dimension from his mortal enemy, the diabolical warlock Kabul (Brian Thompson, "The X-Files"), while also finding the time to for a little romance with a pretty police research consultant tenant (Yvette Nipar, “Robocop: The Series”).

When Band lost the rights to make a Doctor Strange movie, C. Courtney Joyner’s script was rewritten to create an entirely new supernatural superhero with striking similarities to Marvel’s metaphysical superhero. Alas, his only outing would be this lone 1992 feature film.

In a world where Full Moon produced countless Puppet Master, Demonic Toys, Subspecies, and Trancers sequels, how is it we only got one Doctor Mordrid flick? Perhaps because it was one of the more ambitious Full Moon flicks of the time and stop-animating dueling dinosaur skeletons was too expensive to franchise.

Following in the footsteps of Dollman and Trancers, Full Moon has announced plans to remaster Doctor Mordrid in high definition and release it on Blu-ray in a loaded special edition. Extras will include a new commentary with Charles Band and Jeffrey Combs, the original VideoZone featurette from the VHS release, rare video of William Shatner interviewing Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton (who is not in the movie), and uncut behind-the-scenes footage direct from the Full Moon vault.

The Doctor Mordrid Blu-ray will be available whenever the “master of the unknown” decides to re-open the gate to the fourth dimension. In other words, no date announced yet.

Full Moon Entertainment is constantly coming up with new and unique ways to entertain you. Keep up on all the news at FullMoonDirect.com and FullMoonStreaming.com.

We’re Giving Away the Coolest ‘Resident Evil’ Poster Ever

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 10:00

If you haven’t heard, this week is unlike any before it. That’s because it’s Resident Evil Week. That means you can look forward to five straight days of what I’d refer to as a Resident Evil extravaganza, as we carve a week out of what’s been a glorious year for horror games to celebrate the most influential horror game franchise of all time.

We gamers celebrate our favorite video games in a number of different ways that share one thing in common: they all involve a massive amount of passion. The cosplayer honors their favorite game by bringing its characters to life, the fanboy spends his or her nights trolling Internet forums aggressively defending their favorite game, the otaku spends countless hours learning every little detail they can, and so on.

There’s a myriad ways to honor the things you love, but to me, few are as personal as using what you love as inspiration to create art.

Remember that spectacular fan-made Resident Evil poster we took turns ogling back in June? It was the work of Marinko Milosevski, an artist, student and gamer based in Detroit. Because Milosevski is a generous man, he didn’t hesitate when I asked if he’d be willing to donate some of his prints to make our week-long Resident Evil celebration even better.

I have fifteen 18×24″ prints to give away, and while I’ve been struggling with the urge to flee the country with them, I’m proud to say that I haven’t. At least not yet.

Before we get into the rules, take a look at this gorgeous thing.

Already picked out a spot on your wall? Good, I like the way you do things. Here’s what you need to do for a chance to take one home:

TO ENTER: Put Resident Evil Week in the subject line and then send YOUR FULL NAME and ADDRESS to submit@bloody-disgusting.com. Winners will be chosen at random. No PO Boxes. US entries only.

I suppose the only thing that’s left to say is good luck!

When Milosevski isn’t being accosted online by strangers for free stuff, he can be found using his artistic powers for good. This poster is only a small sampling of his work — the rest, including more video game-related work, can be found on his website.

Is the PG-13 Rating Ruining Movies?

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 08:43

The below video takes an in depth look at the MPAA’s PG-13 rating.

From its inception to modern interpretations, the video explores the history of the rating and breaks down why it may be ruining movies. The best part is when they talk about studios tricking audiences with graphic imagery that never ended up in the movie (remember Stay Alive or Cursed?). A lot of people are also unaware that R-rated films aren’t allowed the same kind of advertising freedom as the other ratings, which forces studios to aim for PG-13 in order to get better ad slots.

This all harks back to Poltergeist‘s PG rating, which is still shocking to me.

These Nightmare Photos From The 20′s Are Terrifying

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 08:00

Sometimes the tales that we put in the heads of children to make them behave end up being the stuff of their worst nightmares. Take, for example, the Boogeyman. What other specter has inspired as much fear and terror in the minds of children as this creature? Whether he lurks under your bed, in your closet, outside your window, or in the dark corner of your room, he’s the terrifying spirit that haunts you at your most vulnerable.

In the 1920′s, a photographer shot a series of photos entitled The Goblins Will Get You If You Don’t Watch Out that tells the story of a mother warning her child that the boogeyman will get her if she doesn’t fall asleep. The series of photographs then shows terrifying night demons and ends with… I’m not telling you. You can see for yourself down below!

Some say that this series was inspired by James Whitcomb Riley’s poem Little Orphant Annie, which you can read below.

Sweet dreams!

Little Orphant AnnieJames Whitcomb Riley

Little Orphant Annie’s come to our house to stay,
An’ wash the cups an’ saucers up, an’ brush the crumbs away,
An’ shoo the chickens off the porch, an’ dust the hearth, an’ sweep,
An’ make the fire, an’ bake the bread, an’ earn her board-an’-keep;
An’ all us other childern, when the supper things is done,
We set around the kitchen fire an’ has the mostest fun
A-list’nin’ to the witch-tales ‘at Annie tells about,
An’ the Gobble-uns ‘at gits you
Ef you
Don’t
Watch
Out!

Onc’t they was a little boy wouldn’t say his prayers,–
So when he went to bed at night, away up stairs,
His Mammy heerd him holler, an’ his Daddy heerd him bawl,
An’ when they turn’t the kivvers down, he wasn’t there at all!
An’ they seeked him in the rafter-room, an’ cubby-hole, an’ press,
An’ seeked him up the chimbly-flue, an’ ever’wheres, I guess;
But all they ever found was thist his pants an’ roundabout–
An’ the Gobble-uns’ll git you
Ef you
Don’t
Watch
Out!

An’ one time a little girl ‘ud allus laugh an’ grin,
An’ make fun of ever’one, an’ all her blood an’ kin;
An’ onc’t, when they was “company,” an’ ole folks was there,
She mocked ‘em an’ shocked ‘em, an’ said she didn’t care!
An’ thist as she kicked her heels, an’ turn’t to run an’ hide,
They was two great big Black Things a-standin’ by her side,
An’ they snatched her through the ceilin’ ‘fore she knowed what she’s about!
An’ the Gobble-uns’ll git you
Ef you
Don’t
Watch
Out!

An’ little Orphant Annie says when the blaze is blue,
An’ the lamp-wick sputters, an’ the wind goes woo-oo!
An’ you hear the crickets quit, an’ the moon is gray,
An’ the lightnin’-bugs in dew is all squenched away,–
You better mind yer parents, an’ yer teachers fond an’ dear,
An’ churish them ‘at loves you, an’ dry the orphant’s tear,
An’ he’p the pore an’ needy ones ‘at clusters all about,
Er the Gobble-uns’ll git you
Ef you
Don’t
Watch
Out!
