Forty years ago, photographer Arthur Tress asked children to describe their nightmares in great detail. He then took those descriptions and created staged photographs that are incredibly beautiful and downright terrifying, even after all this time. These photos are meant to bring the voyeur back to the days when they were a child, when simpler, more primal fears caused terror. There’s a gallery below and you can see more via HuffPo.
The upcoming Marvel film Guardians Of The Galaxy, which is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super), is probably one of the most anticipated blockbusters this year. Pretty much all of my friends can’t stop talking about the movie and how excited they are to see it. Admittedly, since I haven’t ready the comics I don’t exactly share in their enthusiasm but it still looks like a good time!
To amp up the anticipation of the movie just that little bit more, the official soundtrack track listing has been announced and it’s full of oldies but goldies! You’ll be hearing artists such as Raspberries, Jackson 5, The Runaways, and more. Below is a YouTube playlist of the album, courtesy of Screencrush.

One of the biggest disappointments this decade is one Taylor Kitsch, pictured above, who failed to break through in a series of big Hollywood blockbusters.
Even though films like Battleship and John Carter failed to make the cut, he was absolutely fantastic on “Friday Night Lights” (seriously guys, watch it on Netflix). I’ve been a huge fan of his ever since, and am losing my mind right now in hearing that he’s in talks to be join Colin Farrell in the second season of HBO’s “True Detective.” TheWrap first reported the news.
Garrett Hedlund (Tron), pictured below, who appears to keep missing out on major roles, has also been rumored to be in contention for “True Detective” but Kitsch is strongly believed to have an edge on the coveted role.
The anthology format of “True Detective” — each season will reboot with new settings and characters — has allowed the network to reach out to big names who might not otherwise want to commit to multiple seasons of a series.
Season 1 of “True Detective,” which took place in Louisiana with a narrative that fluctuated between the mid-’90s and the present, earned Emmy nominations yesterday for Best Drama and Lead Actor in a Drama for stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, neither of whom will return for Season 2.
Universal Pictures shared with us a series of images from their Scarlett Johansson-starrer, Lucy, in theaters July 25.
From La Femme Nikita, The Professional and The Fifth Element (such an underrated film) writer/director Luc Besson, “Lucy is an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.”
The latest TV Spots are pretty great, especially because you end up dying to know what happens when she uses 100% of her brain.
Rose Leslie, who plays the wild warrior Ygritte in “Game of Thrones,” is joining Vin Diesel in The Last Witch Hunter, Summit’s supernatural action project, reports THR.
The Crazies‘s Breck Eisner is still directing Witch Hunter, “which sees a semi-immortal witch hunter (Diesel) wandering the streets of modern New York City forced to partner with his natural enemy, a female witch. The two must stop a villainous witch queen from obtaining a relic and unleashing plague upon humanity.”
Leslie will play a witch and love interest opposite Diesel.
Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Gods of Egypt) recently did a polish on the script, which found life as a pitch by Cory Goodman. D.W. Harper and Dallas Buyers Club writer Melisa Wallack also worked on the script.
An August start date in Pittsburgh is finally being eyed.
Sad news is hitting the internet as it’s being reported that Tommy Ramone, the last living original member of legendary punk rock band The Ramones, has passed at his home in Ridgewood, Queens.

The people behind that awesome murderous clown prank from a few weeks ago are back, this time with a telekinetic priest that has a fondness for head explosions, a lá Scanners. The prank gets really elaborate, involving moving furniture, people floating in midair, tons of blood, and more.
Now why don’t things like this happen in my neck of the woods?
After sharing the first images from Richard Bates Jr.’s Suburban Gothic, his follow-up to the Sundance success, Excision, we now have the film’s red band trailer filled will all things bizarre. It will World Premiere at the 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival from July 17 until August 5, 2014.
“Raymond has a prestigious MBA, but he can’t find work. He can channel the paranormal, but chatting with a cute girl mystifies him. Kicked out of his big city apartment, Raymond returns home to his overbearing mother, ex-jock father, and beer-bellied classmates. But when a vengeful ghost terrorizes the small town, the city-boy recruits Becca, a badass local bartender, to solve the mystery of the spirit threatening everyone’s lives.”
Suburban Gothic is described as an eccentric comedy/horror that stars Matthew Gray Gubler, Kat Dennings, Ray Wise, Sally Kirkland, Jeffrey Combs and John Waters, and riffs on everything from classic supernatural horror and outsider teen comedies to the “Hardy Boys” and “Scooby-Doo”!
Get the first Fantasia announcement here:
The Final Terror is another ’80s slasher given the HD treatment by the folks at Scream Factory. Despite a sparse amount of remaining prints, they went to great lengths to give it a well done presentation. Bravo for their efforts and their continuing work to restore rare and well-known horror films alike, but within their steady stream of releases, there’s bound to be some stinkers. Case in point, The Final Terror – a 1981 backwoods slasher directed by Andrew Davis, the man who would go on to helm The Fugitive and Above the Law.
During the feature commentary with Davis included on Scream Factory’s Blu-ray, he states that he doesn’t like horror films and never made another one after this (although I’d argue that Holes could be considered horror for making a star of Shia LaBeouf). His disinterest towards the genre shows in the film, but at least Davis’ knows his way around a camera because the film looks really great. Given Davis’ later action classics, it’s no surprise The Final Terror looks more like an action film than horror, but there’s a strong grittiness to the atmosphere that works well in the backwoods setting. The cast includes some actors that would go on to become well-known, such as Daryl Hannah, Joe Pantoliano, and Adrian Zmed (Bachelor Party), so it’s cool to see these future stars cutting their chops.
The film’s story is nothing original. Like a lot of slashers of the decade, the film starts with a couple slaughtered in the woods. This part was apparently tacked on after Davis finished filming to give the story an initial thrust before it settles into 50 minutes of down time. Then it jumps to a group of young campers who head into some thick woods for a weekend trip. You see where this is going. Eventually they’re hunted and some are killed by a wild-woman wearing pelts and no shoes.
The body count is very low for a slasher of this era. My hunch is Davis wanted to avoid having to shoot any more gore than he had to. After those initial two kills in the prologue, it takes another 50 minutes for one more person to die, followed by another in the closing minutes. One person even has their throat slashed, only to be saved by the group. Don’t take my thoughts on the low body count to be a complaint, I’m not bloodthirsty or anything, I just believe it was a sign of Davis’ skittishness towards the genre.
None of the characters are developed and none of them have that much depth to them either. They also seem to absolutely hate each other, which isn’t fun to watch, but does create this steady tension that’s thicker than in scenes that are supposed to be intentionally tense. The only character given any sort of real personality is Zorich, a militant redneck survivalist type. He’s played by John Friedrich, who played Joey Capra in one of my favorite movies of all time, The Wanderers. In that film he’s a wacky, awkward guy who strikes out with the ladies, so it’s really fun to watch him play the drug-absuing scumbag Zorich.
Overall there’s nothing really memorable about The Final Terror - nothing sticks with you after watching it. The look of the killer is fairly striking and there’s a cool booby trap like one you’d see on Endor utilized in the climax. If you’ve never seen it, I highly recommend renting this one first. After you watch it, pop back on here and try to explain to me what the “final terror” is because I have no idea.
The Blu-ray sports a 1080p transfer culled from six remaining prints owned by collectors. There’s a disclaimer in the beginning in which Scream Factory states that the original negatives are lost, so they did what they could with those six prints. For a cut and chop job, it looks fairly decent. The daytime scenes have nice details and there’s not enough print damage to be distracting. If anything, the scratches and other noise add to the film’s grittiness.
Like I mentioned, on the feature commentary with Davis he points out that he doesn’t like horror movies and has never made another one. He doesn’t seem all that enthused about revisiting this film either. He goes a very long time without talking. It’s simply a boring track.
The disc features new interviews with actors Adrian Zmed and Lewis Smith. They discuss how they got involved with the picture, working with Davis, and their acting background (Smith had none going into the film, he didn’t even have a SAG card). There’s also interviews with editor Allan Holzman and composer Susan Justin, both who share the opinion that it’s not a very good film but are still proud of their contributions.
Also included is a misleading trailer.

An underground comic artist mocks the wrong mobster and loses his drawing hand in retribution. The artist may be silenced, but the severed appendage returns, to continue drawing comics on its own - and commit some seriously bloody acts of vengeance! A splatter horror comedy about freedom of expression that’s as touching as it is profane.
“Ghosted” takes a slight detour this month as Joshua Williamson lays out Anderson’s backstory. Making the undead femme fatale the most complex and compelling supporting character of the series, and firmly cemented her as the secondary protagonist in a thrilling chapter that seamless brings us to the beginning of the third arc.
WRITTEN BY: Joshua Williamson
ART BY: Goran Sudzuka
PUBLISHER: Image Comics
RELEASE: July 9, 2014
It’s been a cold two months without “Ghosted.” I feel warmer already after reading Williamson’s detailed account of Anderson’s past. For a while I wasn’t sure about her deal, I knew she was important, but I didn’t really know why and certainly didn’t know what she wanted. This month Williamson shows us exactly who she is, and why she became the killing machine we met in issue one.
I still take some issue with some of her motivations being a little base level, but the story proved interesting enough to stay compelling. She’s a killing machine, and she’s good at it. She followed the money, and for more reasons than one she should be alive instead of Jackson. Yet, she’s too cocksure. A fault that Williamson hammers home here with her pride getting the best of her in the past, she’s good but she’s not the best.
Goran Sudzuka was sorely missed. His return to the series in this issue is worth the cover price alone. His dark style just pops off the page, and he revels in these unsavory characters. His action is clean and the supernatural elements in his work are simply stunning. The final pages of the issue are absolutely chilling as we see Anderson interacting with a broken and beaten Jackson. Sudzuka’s framing and the way he sets up the shots creates such an uncanny sense of dread, hell the dude could give Argento a run for his money.
Williamson has taken the time to ground his characters in a certain blend of fearlessness and desperation that is unique to his genre blend. The result is a irresistible crime caper that channels a unique type of terror. There is something devilishly charming about virgin blood candles, and something equally unsettling. I’m excited to see how deep the darkness of the series goes now that “Nailbiter” is in full swing.
Truly Williamson has proven himself to be a master of horror, and this issue serves as a reminder that he hasn’t forgotten his compelling characters along the way. It’s a breath of fresh air in horror that never seems to run out of steam. The only thing that saddens me this month is that we didn’t go deeper. I wanted to learn more and really get into the core of what drives Anderson. The answer we got here was that she’s driven by her drive, but I think there is still so much more to the character. In any event, her drive has now made her resolve to haunt Jackson for the rest of his miserable life.
We’ll see how that goes in thirty.

There is something alluring about Joshua Hale Fialkov’s new series “The Life After” right from the get go, it might be the gorgeous art from Gabo, a two page spread featuring forty panels, or the breakneck pace of the narrative. Whatever it is, it’s irresistible and confidently introduces you to the strange new world of purgatory.
WRITTEN BY: Joshua Hale Fialkov
ART BY: Gabo
PUBLISHER: Oni Press
RELEASE: July 9, 2014
I have a certain respect for debut issues that can survive solely on the merit of the questions they ask. Servicing their story and their audience plagues most comic series debuts. They offer explanations for literally everything. “The Life After” #1 doesn’t have a single answer on the page. Instead we’re thrown headfirst into the world with our protagonist and taken on a visually immersive adventure that has inklings of something more.
There is an element of control to this chaos. Fialkov makes so much clear within the opening page, but he doesn’t over explain it. In fact these little acts of puppeteering actually make the complexity a little less daunting. Someone or something is behind this insanity, and eventually we’ll get to the bottom of it.
For now Gabo does most of the heavy lifting. The script gives plenty of room for heavy bits of voice over narration but the artwork takes the story to dizzying heights. There is such a clash of worlds going on here that Gabo’s style should be frenzied but it never misses the mark.
Instead he offers a seamless clash of every sort of visual inspiration you can think of, co-existing in a mad world where nothing seems to make sense. His character designs are remarkable and varied. The large panels showing off this purgatory world are as impressive as they are complex.
Fialkov wastes no time pulling the story to a head with the introduction of Ernest Hemmingway. A character I wasn’t expecting in the least, but serves as easily one of the most charming parts of the issue. The adventurer is sure to pull our protagonist into a wild journey of discovery, and while the influential writer does offer a lot of exposition, it’s hardly distracting.
What should be a intense concept hardly ever feels that way. While the comic does have some difficult scenes within it, it never feels over indulgent. Instead we’re given a dose of terror amongst all the wonder on the page. Not everything in this world can be wonderful, and knowing Failkov, there is bound to be a whole lot more horror around the corner.
“The Life After” is equal parts whimsical and haunting. It’s brilliantly paced and expertly communicated. This debut issues shows you a world where anything is possible and teases a near limitless scope for the future of the series. As far as first issues go it’s a total knockout.
Chile is an interesting place. I've never been there and know very little about it, but they have an actual branch of their version of the FAA that investigates UFO reports. That's pretty damn interesting.
The CEFAA (Committee for the Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena) even has a website where photos under investigation can be viewed. Their latest report, as mentioned in Leslie Kean's HuffPost blog, concerns a series of photos taken in April 2013 at a mining facility in the Andes.
Scientists and engineers working at the mine observed what can only be described as a good, old fashioned flying saucer. The object was said to be hovering over the site, making absolutely no sound. The witnesses said it made several maneuvers that demonstrated it wasn't simply floating in the wind. The lack of noise ruled out a drone.
Both of the photos show the object, but in different locations and in a different orientation. Sunlight is clearly reflecting off the metallic object, although one analyst states that the light is too bright and at an incorrect angle to be sunlight and could be energy being emitted from the disc.
The CEFAA analysis ruled out most explanations, and thus the report states that it is indeed an unidentified flying object.
Do these clear photos from educated, scientific witnesses show something unearthly? An experimental craft? Time travelers? Let us know what you think below!

Tristan Risk, who wowed audiences in the role of Beatress in American Mary last year, will be bringing her fabulous talents to the set of director Ryan M. Andrews' newest project, Save Yourself, which begins filming soon.
Little Miss Risk can also be seen in the new short film Call Girl, the upcoming Fetish Factory and Fembot, as well as many other entertainingly twisted underground projects, leading to what is sure to be a huge and exciting year for her. Currently, she joins Jessica Cameron amongst a fully Canadian cast in Andrews' Save Yourself.
Andrews is completely stoked to be working with Risk. "The Soskas’ film American Mary was arguably the biggest indie film of last year, and Tristan Risk’s character, Beatress, was a stand-out performance," Andrews said. "The character was so unique and interesting. Risk played it perfectly, and to have a talent like her bringing her edge and attitude to Save Yourself is truly exciting."
And the respect is mutual as Risk is very excited to join such a talented cast and crew. On joining Save Yourself, Risk said, "I’m so thrilled to be doing this since it’s got some great traditional horror elements with girls road tripping and running afoul of some folks of a deviant nature but also because of its other qualities. I think this will surprise quite a few people and continue a proud tradition with Canadian genre."
From the Press Release
Director Ryan M. Andrews is excited to attach American Mary star Tristan Risk to a powerhouse ensemble cast of Canadian talent in Save Yourself. Risk joins the previously announced cast of Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare), Ry Barrett (The Demolisher), Tianna Nori (Clean Break), and Sydney Kondruss (The Drownsman).
And the talent does not stop there. Andrews, along with executive producers Pino Halili and Allen Ormerod, did a grueling casting session to hand pick for each role, including Caleigh LeGrand (Late Night Double Feature), Bea Santos (Antisocial), and a special appearance from veteran star Bobbie Phillips, whose credits include Wes Craven’s Carnival of Souls, Showgirls, Evil Breed, "The X-Files." and many more.
Phillips says, “I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of Save Yourself and looking forward to working with the delightfully twisted Ryan Andrews, Jessica Cameron, and the rest of the bloody talented crew.”
Returning to Andrews’ side to shoot the film is Michael Jari Davidson (Berkshire County, The Last Halloween, SICK). "Mr. Davidson shares the same love and passion that I have for this genre. His skills are beyond reproach, and his style compliments me perfectly," Andrews says about his cinematographer.
Predator. The ultimate killing machine. He went up against two men who went on to become United States governors in his first film, and he just kept kicking ass from there. But how would he fare in medieval times? The short film Predator: Dark Ages will ask that question.
Featuring a premise that will pit the intergalactic headhunter against the Knights Templar, Predator: Dark Ages promises to be a fan film extraordinaire. The director will be award-winning filmmaker James Bushe.
Actors currently attached to the project are Adrian Bouchet (Clash of the Titans, Alien vs. Predator), Jon Campling (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2), Ben Loyd-Holmes ("Da Vinci's Demons"), Zara Phythian (He Who Dares), and Amed Hashimi (47 Ronin).

Predator: Dark Ages Synopsis
Our story begins in a dark prison cell with a mysterious man chained to the wall, tired and hungry. He is the only living survivor from an attack on a group of soldiers. The only living witness to the atrocities a demon of the night performed in front of his very eyes.
Entrusted by the church to hunt down the beast that slaughtered their brothers in arms, a group of battle-worn Templar Knights must use this only witness to find and kill the demon that plagues the English countryside. To lead this group is a knight who no longer believes in God or country and has given up on humanity. But will this one last battle help him regain his lust for life and save his fellow brothers as well as himself?
The soldiers are only too aware of the devastation that was brought to their lost comrades and so must turn to others to assist in their quest. A group of battle-hardened, money-driven mercenaries are called upon to join the hunt. Having to not only drag with them a suspicious sole survivor who is an eyewitness but also a pack of untrustworthy mercenaries, a difficult path full of twists and turns lies ahead for the Templar Knights, more so than they first believed.
