The next day, Eric finds his confidence invigorated and his stomach in excruciating pain that can only be cured by one thing…blood.

Onur Tukel also stars in this dark comedy about love, lust, and humanity.

Yep, That’s a Lyre Made From a Human Skull

bloody disgusting - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 18:03

Because the world is and forever will be a source of creations that are both wonderfully bizarre and thoroughly ghastly, we can always look forward to things like this, a lyre crafted from a human skull, antelope horn, skin, gut, and hair. Whoever donated their headpiece — whether or not they were willing — has been forever immortalized in something that is officially, in my humble opinion, the very definition of metal.

If you’d like to see this creepy 19th century musical instrument, you’ll have to wait for the Metropolitan Museum of Art to take it out of storage. I’d go on, but I think I just found the perfect birthday gift for Jonny B…

This ‘Scarecrow’ Cosplay is Mind-Blowingly Good

bloody disgusting - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 17:12

It’s been awhile since I last covered amazing cosplay, but I stumbled upon this fantastic Scarecrow cosplay and I had to share it with all of you. This rendition of one of the Dark Knight’s greatest villains is the work of Ben, a 24 year-old cosplayer in Germany who clearly loves the Scarecrow as much as I do.

Scarecrow was, in my opinion, one of the best things about Batman: Arkham Asylum, and because Rocksteady knows exactly what we want, he’ll be making a glorious — and very likely terrifying — return in Batman: Arkham Knight, which releases next year.

For more of Ben’s work, check out his gallery.

Telltale’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Coming to PS4, Xbox One in October

bloody disgusting - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 16:41

If you’ve been waiting for Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Game to finally arrive on current-gen consoles before you decide to give in and play this amazing series, season one and two of the episodic series will arrive on the PS4 and Xbox One on October 14 for $29.99. The price is a little surprising, I was expecting it to be a bit cheaper since both seasons are already available at a lower cost elsewhere. Even still, I think The Walking Dead is more than worth its price tag.

The release date Telltale picked is also a little confusing to me. October is currently the busiest month of the year, as it will see the release of Super Smash Bros. (Oct 3), Alien: Isolation (Oct 7), Dragon Age: Inquisition (Oct 7), Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (Oct 14), Battlefield Hardline (Oct 21), The Evil Within (Oct 21), Evolve (Oct 21), Assassin’s Creed Unity (Oct 28), and Sunset Overdrive (Oct 28), among others.

I’m sure it will perform fine, but geez.

E3 Demo Footage Shows Off What Makes ‘H1Z1′ Unique

bloody disgusting - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 16:09

When Sony showed off their upcoming zombie survival game H1Z1 in April, it looked a lot like the similarly themed DayZ. It’s impossible not to draw the comparison, seeing as both games drop players in a zombie infested world where they’re forced to survive against the harsh conditions of the world that surrounds them, as well as other players who may have been infected with the seemingly incurable condition I refer to as bandit mentality.

In this new video, H1Z1 designer Jimmy Whisenhunt goes into a bit more detail on the features and systems that set this game apart from its competitors.

For starters, there’s a feature called the Discovery System, which shows you what you can craft with items scavenged from the environment. The more items you discover, the more things you can create to improve your chances of survival. A bunch of things can be crafted, from tools and weapons to animal traps and shelter. There’s also something called emergent AI, which adds an element of unpredictability to the game. See all that and more in the video below.

‘Stasis’ Coming No Later Than Feb 2015, New Screens Introduce the Insect Queen

bloody disgusting - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 15:50

Developer Christopher Bischoff’s ambitious, and gorgeous, sci-fi horror game Stasis has been on my radar ever since it managed to raise a staggering $132,000 on Kickstarter back in December. Its visual style and setting — a starship whose rooms and corridors have been spattered with copious amounts of gore and viscera — draws immediate comparisons to EA’s Dead Space series. But this game, which combines horror with 2D point and click adventure gameplay is so much more than that.

In a post on the game’s Kickstarter page, we’re introduced to the Insect Queen, a gross tumorous mass of organic matter and horns that I am very much looking forward to vanquishing when the game arrives no later than February 2015.

I spent some time with Stasis back in March, you can see how that went in the video below.

He influences them to bend to his evil will and their latent inner demons explode in a crazed night of blood-spilling and mayhem. Only rookie cop Rachel is able to resist him … Will she survive?

The 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to take Montreal by storm with three weeks of inspiration and excitement starting July 17 until August 5, 2014. The full 2014 lineup of programming and special events will be revealed shortly, but in the meantime, here’s some new imagery to whet your appetite.

We revealed a few months back that Ochiai Masayuki, who directed Infection, Hypnosis and the absolutely atrocious 2008 remake of Shutter, is set to pen and get behind the camera for Ju-on: Owari no Hajimari, or The Grudge: Beginning of the End.

Today, we got our hands on new imagery from the latest entry in which, “An elementary school teacher named Yui visits the home of a boy named Toshio Saeki who’s been absent from school for a long period of time. When she arrives, she re-lives the horrific tragedy which occurred in the Saeki household 10 years earlier. A cardboard box left in a closet holds the key to revealing a long-hidden truth.” Nozomi Sasaki and Kai Kobayashi star.

‘Escape Dead Island’ Announced, Includes ‘Dead Island 2′ Beta Access

bloody disgusting - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 14:44

If you fancy yourself a fan of the Dead Island franchise, you must be so happy right now. There’s the colorful ZOMBA, or Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena game Dead Island: Epidemic, the Yager-developed Dead Island 2, and now we have a third game called Escape Dead Island.

Deep Silver describes Escape Dead Island as a survival mystery game, so it doesn’t sound like it will share the zany, carefree personalities of the other two games. It will be set on the fictional island of Narapela and follow Cliff Calo, the son of a wealthy media mogul, who makes a trip to Banoi to uncover the truth behind the epidemic.

Sadly, this will be a single-player experience — another first for the series — but they are releasing it at a discounted price of $39.99.

In related news, if you purchase the game at GameStop you’ll get access to the Dead Island 2 beta that will kick off sometime next year.

Escape Dead Island releases this fall on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

[Fantasia '14] ‘Housebound’ Horror Trapped In the Walls

bloody disgusting - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 14:18

The 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to take Montreal by storm with three weeks of inspiration and excitement starting July 17 until August 5, 2014. The full 2014 lineup of programming and special events will be revealed shortly, but in the meantime, here’s some new imagery to whet your appetite.

Check out these new images from the horror comedy Housebound, which was acquired by XLrator Media for release in the States.

In the New Zealand-based film, “Kylie Bucknell is forced to return to the house she grew up in when the court places her on home detention. Her punishment is made all the more unbearable by the fact she has to live there with her mother Miriam – a well-intentioned blabbermouth who’s convinced that the house is haunted. Kylie dismisses Miriam’s superstitions as nothing more than a distraction from a life occupied by boiled vegetables & small town gossip. However, when she too becomes privy to unsettling whispers & strange bumps in the night, she begins to wonder whether she’s inherited her overactive imagination, or if the house is in fact possessed by a hostile spirit who’s not particularly thrilled about her return.

Housebound is directed by Gerard Johnstone and stars Morgana O’Reilly, Rima Te Wiata, Glen-Paul Waru, Cameron Rhodes, Millen Baird, Ross Harper, Bruce Hopkins, Ryan Lampp, Ian Mune and Wallace Chapman.
