Premiere Date Set for Sharknado 2: The Second One; More Celebrity Cameos Revealed

Dread Central - Sat, 03/08/2014 - 12:00

Just when we thought the cast for Sharknado 2: The Second One couldn't get any stranger, more cameos have been revealed along with the flick's official release date. Read on for the details!

Per THR, Sharknado 2: The Second One will barely make Syfy's previously announced "sometime in July" debut as it arrives on Thursday, July 31st, at 9 PM PT/ET, just a little more than one year after the original movie aired.

Now, who can we look forward to becoming chum for the beasties? Blogger Perez Hilton, rapper Biz Markie, and Salt-N-Pepa's Pepa (aka Sandra Denton). Robert Klein and professional wrestler/Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle have also signed on and are playing a former New York City mayor and the FDNY fire chief, respectively.

Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote Sharknado. In Sharknado 2: The Second One, a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a "sharknado" on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, returning from the original) can save the Big Apple.

Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander, Vivica A. Fox, and Mark McGrath also appear in the Syfy Original Movie.

Play a Game with These Stills and Preview of Hannibal Episode 2.03 - Hassun

Dread Central - Sat, 03/08/2014 - 11:00

Serious doubts are raised about the case against Will in next week's Episode 2.03 of "Hannibal," entitled "Hassun." Have a look at some new images and a preview of the ep for clues about where things are going from here.

"Hannibal" Episode 2.03 - "Hassun" (airs 3/14/14; 10-11PM)

Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) trial begins, and he must watch as those closest to him are forced to take sides.

Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), already in hot water from Alana Bloom’s (Caroline Dhavernas) scathing report about his conduct with Will, is pulled in conflicting directions. He acknowledges that he may be partially to blame for pushing his star pupil over the edge.

To add confusion to an already suspenseful trial, a court bailiff is killed in a copycat-like manner, and those closest to Will start to wonder if they were wrong about him. The outcome of the entire trial hangs in the balance as one last key victim is served up.

Also starring Hettienne Park, Aaron Abrams, Scott Thompson, and Raúl Esparza. Guest stars include Cynthia Nixon, Shawn Doyle, Lara Jean Chorostecki, and Maria del Mar.

Major 'Godzilla' Details Reveal Creature's Origin!

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/08/2014 - 01:48

While Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures struggle to keep the story and visuals under wraps, the licensing of Godzilla has caused a few headaches.

Today images hit Twitter of a brand new giant-sized Godzilla toy, which carried a description of the lizard king’s origin, as well as his motive for returning for the depths of the ocean!

beware of series spoilers, although I think it’s pretty cool to know now…

Possibly the last of an ancient species of giant amphibious creatures that evolved at a time when the surface of the Earth was over ten times more radioactive that it is today. Godzilla can convert his radiation stores into a violent, focused exhalation of atomic ray. Rarely seen, but spoken of in ancient Pacific Island myths, “Gojira” was last spotted in 1954, when the U.S. Navy encountered and attempted to kill him with an atomic blast in the Pacific Ocean. Since then, the giant creature has been living in the deep ocean – until a threat to his survival from an ancient foe forces him to reappear.

Gareth Edwards (Monsters) directs an all-star cast that includes Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, Yuki Morita, C.J. Adams, and Gary Chalk.

In theaters May 16, 2014, an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

'Betrayer' Leaving Steam Early Access, Gets Price And Release Date

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 19:40

Blackpowder Games, an indie developer made up of former Monolith devs (FEAR, Condemned), has confirmed that its next project, the eerie, atmospheric shooter Betrayer is complete and will be transitioning out of Steam Early Access on March 24th. When the game releases, its price will go up to $19.99, so if you’re interested in it — maybe our playthrough piqued your interest — Betrayer will remain at $14.99 until then.

“Since shipping FEAR almost 10 years ago, we’ve been wanting to create a player-driven game that emphasizes exploration and discovery with minimal hand-holding,” says Craig Hubbard, designer and writer on Betrayer. “We’re ecstatic to finally get the chance.”

“Ultimately, what we’re proudest of is that Betrayer is distinctive. When you’re setting out to create a first person action game with seven people, the biggest fear is that you’ll make something redundant: a cheap version of a bigger, better title. But I feel confident saying you haven’t played anything quite like this.”

Betrayer is available on Steam Early Access (not for much longer), you can get it here.

Twisted Music Video Of The Week Vol. 125: Mastodon "Curl Of The Burl"

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 18:30

It’s Friday and spring is hopefully right around the corner. I guess that’s why I’m feeling like I need a bit more nature in my life. Y’know, trees that have leaves on them. Grass that I can actually see (damn snow) and walk on. Wildlife not shivering their tails off. That kinda stuff! Then I can walk around without 12 layers of clothing. I can breathe through my nose without the condensation freezing (no joke, that’s happened many times this winter). I can walk around my neighborhood without slipping and breaking my ass at every possible turn.

What I don’t plan on doing is taking nature and sniffing it like a drug. I also don’t plan on taking randomly found mushrooms and using them to turn into a burly, sun-murdering lumberjack. But that’s precisely what Mastodon are up to in their “Curl Of The Burl” music video, which is this week’s “Twisted Music Video Of The Week”!

Head on down to check it out!

Director Watch: 'Oculus' Helmer Mike Flanagan Will 'Dive' Into the Dead!

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 17:36

Writer-director Mike Flanagan is fucking awesome. The dude has propelled himself into directing stardom after years of television by directing the indie Absentia and absolutely fantastic Oculus, in theaters April 11 via Relativity. What I like about Flanagan is that, unlike a lot of aspiring filmmakers out there, he continued to work – and work hard. His IMDB shows an impressive amount of work, while also finding time to get short films in his schedule – one of which translated into him getting Oculus funded (life lesson, guys!).

I’m truly excited to see him break out, and hope that his next endeavor is as scary as Oculus. Taking cues from Flatliners, Flanagan and Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy are reteaming on the supernatural thriller Diver, setting a summer production start, reports Deadline.

“Diver revolves around a secret project based in New Orleans that involves a team sent to enter the minds of the recently dead to experience their final memories in order to solve the most heinous crimes. When the Divers breach the barrier between the living and the dead, they must contend with the supernatural force they unleash.

Flanagan will direct a script by Diane Ademu-John and Carter Blanchard with revisions by Flanagan and writing partner Jeff Howard. Macy will produce the film, with Marc D. Evans, Asha Kurian, and Julie Wilke also serving in various producing capacities.

'Only Lovers Left Alive' An Incredible New Take on Vampires (Trailer Debut)

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 17:25

Easily one of my favorite horror films of the year, Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive isn’t for everyone. While Ryan Daley wasn’t the biggest of fans, I found my self obsessing over the film’s beautiful simplicity, extraordinary acting (Tilda Swanson and Tom Hiddleston are out of this world), and real-life story structure. While it’s a bit “hipster,” it’s extremely powerful storytelling with strongly developed characters. Also featuring astounding sound design and score, this is a must-see in theaters…

The pic “tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Hiddleston) and Eve (Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. 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.

Sony Pictures has finally released an official U.S. trailer that’s pretty representational of what you’ll see in theaters April 11. Enjoy an O-negative ice pop while you watch the trailer!

John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin also star.
