The indie horror game U55 – End of the Line has surpassed its €32,000 goal on the crowdfunding site Funded By Me with an impressive €43,094 raised. U55 aims to take a page or two out of H.P.

U55 made our list of the 30 most anticipated upcoming indie horror games for a reason, and that reason is readily apparent in the below trailer. This game looks terrifying.

[E3 2014] ‘The Last of Us’ Monsters Invade ‘Diablo III’ On PS3/PS4

bloody disgusting - Tue, 06/10/2014 - 18:17

You look like you could use a Diablo III / The Last of Us crossover. Oh, I’m spot on, am I? Well, it’s a good thing this is totally happening. When Diablo III makes its way to PS4 later this year, it will come with an exclusive dungeon that will be brimming with enemies taken straight out of The Last of Us. I’m not sure I understand it, but I’m also not sure I need to, because it’s awesome either way. Those Clickers destroyed me when I was playing as Joel, but the next time I see them I’ll be able to return the favor as a level 60 something Monk.

Go ahead and cry your fungus tears, Clickers, I won’t be granting you any mercy!

First Image from the Set of The Legend of Barney Thomson

Dread Central - Tue, 06/10/2014 - 18:02

Actor Robert Carlyle is making his directorial debut on the new horror comedy The Legend of Barney Thomson (formerly The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson), and we have the first image from the set for you. Check it out!

Myriad Pictures announced Tuesday that principal photography has begun in the UK on the darkly humorous film which will star two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks, Sense and Sensibility), Ray Winstone (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Departed, Hugo), and Carlyle, who will also play the title role.

The script is based on a widely popular series of novels by Douglas Lindsay and was adapted for the screen by BAFTA award-winner Colin McLaren (Donkeys) and Richard Cowan. Myriad Pictures is handling worldwide sales on the film.

In The Legend of Barney Thomson, Carlyle plays the title character, a downtrodden Glaswegian barber who inadvertently stumbles into serial murder, with both absurd and macabre consequences. Complicating matters further, Barney’s formidable mother Cemolina (Thompson) cheerfully emasculates him at every turn, causing a bloody and comedic chain of events. While Barney clumsily tries to cover his tracks, Glasgow police inspector Holdall (Winstone) fights his own battles within his inept homicide department as he tries to solve the crime of the century. A black comedy of errors unfolds as the police try to capture the murderer at large.

Additional cast members include Brian Pettifer (Vanity Fair, Donkeys, Amadeus), Sir Tom Courtney (Quartet, The Golden Compass), Martin Compston (Filth, The Disappearance of Alice Creed), James Cosmo (Braveheart, The Chronicles of Narnia, Trainspotting), Ashley Jensen (The Lobster, How to Train Your Dragon), as well as Kevin Guthrie (Sunshine on Leith) and Stephen McCole (Rushmore, The Acid House).

Academy Award winning prosthetic makeup designer Mark Coulier (Harry Potter franchise, The Iron Lady, X Men First Class) provides the prosthetic makeup; Fabian Wagner (TV’s “Sherlock,” “Game of Thrones,” Frankenstein) serves as the director of photography on the film, and Ross Dempster (art director of Godzilla, 50/50, and 2012) is the project's production designer.

The Legend of Barney Thomson is currently shooting in and around the Glasgow area.

[E3 2014] Jaw-Dropping ‘Bloodborne’ Screens Emerge

bloody disgusting - Tue, 06/10/2014 - 17:59

Last night, we got our first look at Bloodborne, a horror fantasy RPG from the makers of the Dark Souls series. If you didn’t immediately lose your mind following its announcement, then you and I aren’t on the same page, because this game looks spectacular. Literally. We have two new screens from the upcoming game that you can enjoy below. They look like concept art, but no, that’s what the actual game looks like.

We also have some new details on the game, courtesy of Famitsu and translated by NeoGAF. For starters, much like the Dark Souls series, Bloodborne will feature character customization, some sort of online functionality, both melee and long-range weapons, and apparently, the game has been “designed to feel like a life or death struggle.”

We also have a quote from visionary director Hidetaka Miyazaki:

“Creating Bloodborne as a completely new game on the new PlayStation 4 hardware has allowed us to really push the envelope in myriad ways. That being said, in more ways than one, it also very much retains our distinct, signature style. As has been at the core of our development philosophy since Demon’s Souls, we make true games for people who love games. Please watch for more to come on Bloodborne, and thank you very much for your support.”

Bloodborne is slated to release exclusively on the PS4 in 2015.

[E3 2014] New ‘The Evil Within’ Footage Details Upgrade System

bloody disgusting - Tue, 06/10/2014 - 17:14

When I had the chance to play The Evil Within last month, there was one feature that was still left in relative mystery: the upgrade system. Scattered about the game’s environments is this green goop, which can be collected and used to improve Sebastian’s abilities. It also drops from slain enemies, and it’s not all that clear how Sebastian goes about collecting that. Maybe he has a straw concealed in that amazing vest of his.

You can see the upgrade system in action in the video below, and if you missed my hands-on preview, my mom said it’s a decent read.

Now ‘Marilyn Monroe’ Is a ‘Zombie Hunter’

bloody disgusting - Tue, 06/10/2014 - 17:07

After winning two awards (Best Horror Film & Best Make-Up) for Lazarus: Day of The Living Dead at the New York City International Film Festival, writer/producer/director Thomas J. Churchill (Lazarus, EP: The Emerging Past, Monster Man, Mr. Hush) and his producing partner David M. Parks (Lazarus, EP: The Emerging Past) are releasing the first teasers of their next project the horror/thriller/action film Marilyn Monroe: Zombie Hunter.

Marilyn Monroe: Zombie Hunter will be directed by Churchill from a script he is writing with horror author Joe Knetter and will star model, actress and scream queen Sarah French as the iconic blonde bomb-shell turned zombie slayer.

Churchill stated that his inspiration for Marilyn Monroe: Zombie Hunter was “the concept of this incredible Hollywood icon as a cool samurai sword-wielding, kick-ass assassin summoned by our President to be humanities’ last hope against zombie domination just toyed with me, and I needed to get it out of my head, onto paper and on the screen. The film is going to be a straight-up horror-thriller.” He adds the film will be “very much an old-school summer event movie… Kill Bill meets ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer.’

Principal photography is slated to take place in Hollywood, California late 2014.

Yet Another Slender Man Attack…

bloody disgusting - Tue, 06/10/2014 - 16:55

Last week we told you about a tragic murder attempt in which two pre-teens stabbed their friends nearly to death in the name of a fiction creature named “Slender Man”.

Just days later it happened again, this time with a teen putting on a white mask and stabbing her mother.

WLWT out of Cincinnati reports that a Hamilton County mother says her daughter’s attacking her with a knife could have been a result of the fictional horror character Slender Man.

Eric Knudsen (“Victor Surge”) of the Something Awful forum created the Slender Man as a meme back in 2009. Explains Wiki, it is depicted as resembling a thin, unnaturally tall man with a blank and usually featureless face, wearing a black suit. Stories of the Slender Man commonly feature him stalking, abducting, or traumatizing people, particularly children

“She had her hood up and had her hands covered with her sleeves and the mask,” the mother said.

She said her 13-year-old daughter was obsessed with the fictional character Slender Man.

“She was someone else during that attack,” the mother said.

Her daughter allegedly attacked her with a knife in the kitchen of their home.

The daughter is in the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center.

The mother said her daughter has mental health issues but that she never imagined anything like this would happen.

“I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me and she was wearing a mask, a white mask,” she said.

The mother said her daughter’s writings and drawings have always been dark. They referenced demons, being insane and falling into darkness.

“(She) mentioned playing a role. (I) got the feeling she was playing a role. It didn’t feel like her at all,” the mother said.

The mother said that after hearing about the two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls allegedly stabbing their friend to please Slender Man, she thinks her daughter was under the same influence.

“We found things that she had written and she made reference to Slender Man. She also made references to killing,” the mother said. “She even created a world for Slender Man in the game mine craft.”

Slender Man stories often feature him stalking or traumatizing people.

“We do have to police what they do and what they read,” the mother said.

The girl is facing charges as a juvenile. Her family has not allowed to discuss the case with her but her mother said she told other people that she does not remember the attack.

Her mother was treated for minor injuries in the attack, including cuts on her neck and face and a puncture wound on her back.

You can a video report on the attack over at WLWT.

How ‘Jurassic Park’ Changed Movies Forever

bloody disgusting - Tue, 06/10/2014 - 16:46

Academy Originals has shared their latest episode of “Moments That Changed The Movies,” this time focusing on Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park.

The video takes a look back at the 1993 classic, the groundbreaking decision to create digital dinosaurs, and the impact it had on the future of movies. What it doesn’t speak to is that Spielberg has talked about doing the dinos in stop-motion or as inflatables (an example would be the “King Kong” rides at Universal Studios). You can learn even more about that on the film’s home video extra features; it’s really cool stuff.
