Swedish directors André Hedetoft and Andreas Climent don’t quite understand that a BioShock movie isn’t looking for a director, it’s looking for financing. So, their fan-made video plea is only going to get them so far…
What we have is a live-action fan film from the Swedish directors inspired by “Bioshock,” one of the most popular video games of all time. Made on a super low budget and shot in one day, with post-production taking place over a period of several months.
Watch as a Little Sister delivers a goodie to Big Daddy.
Would you hire these guys to direct a BioShock film for Universal?
This year’s Men in Black? Sure. Check out this new international trailer for R.I.P.D., starring Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, Stephanie Szostak, Mary-Louise Parker, Marisa Miller, Mike O’Malley, James Hong, Robert Knepper, and Tobias Segal.
In theaters July 19, “Nick is dead — at least, that’s how he remembers it — and teams up with another deceased detective, a gunslinger from the Old West (played by Jeff Bridges), to work for the elite task force, the Rest In Peace Department (hence the title), to track down the dead on Earth. (Due to overpopulation, some unsettled spirits haven’t gone where they’re supposed to, and are hiding out). Technically, R.I.P.D. officers (who are overseen by Mary-Louise Parker) aren’t allowed to kill anyone living, and aren’t supposed to interact with anyone from their previous lives, but Nick is haunted by the fact that he was murdered by another cop (played by Kevin Bacon), and can’t let it go.“
In limited theaters and VOD tomorrow (June 14th) from MPI/Dark Sky Films is director BJ McDonnell’s Hatchet III. Mr. Disgusting and I hit up the premiere earlier this week and he left fairly mixed on the film. I have to say I pretty much agree with this review, the movie was a lot of fun in spots but had some problematic character and narrative elements.
“I think McDonnell did an absolutely incredible job with what he was given and at the very least delivers some gore and thrills that hardcore horror fans are going to eat up. I had a pretty good time, even though I couldn’t shake the feeling I was watching a 10-year-old’s vision of ‘Friday the 13th.’”
Electronic group Aesthetic Perfection have released an official video for their new single “Antibody”. The song comes from an as-of-yet-untitled fourth album, which has an undetermined 2014 release date. The video was directed and edited by Mitch Massie, who is the man responsible for the now infamous “Forced Gender Reassignment” music video from Cattle Decapitation. The video reminds me of something that Marilyn Manson would do, with lots of latex, disgusting teeth, colored contacts, etc…
You can buy a digital copy of the single here and also check out the video below.
EDM mad wizard Celldweller has been featured in a new TV spot for Pacific Rim. His song “First Person Shoot” is heavily utilized throughout the 33-second clip and is now available as a free download. Simply head on below to watch the TV spot and to stream/download the song.

Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his abandoned house and find another collection of mysterious VHS tapes. In viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be terrifying motives behind the student’s disappearance.
Despite seeing very little of it, Outlast has quickly become one of my most anticipated horror games of the year. I’ve heard it compared to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, with some who have played it going so far as to say it’s actually scarier than Frictional’s indie horror masterpiece. That’s a lofty claim, I say.
Outlast is coming exclusively to the PC and PlayStation 4 later this year. If you’re as pumped for it as I am, you should definitely check out this new gameplay footage, courtesy of GameTrailers.
Big thanks to Skull-And-Crossbones for the tip!

The gothic metropolis of weird science is on the brink of destruction as chaos rules the streets and a new enemy plots revenge. It’s time to enter the dark side of Borgova and the forbidden wilderness, but beware: you are not the only one behind a mask.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, currently available worldwide for $14.99 via Steam on Windows® PC, is a one-of-a-kind action-RPG that pits players in fierce battles against familiar supernatural foes and enables players to partake in a tower-defense mini-game within Van Helsing’s upgradable lair to ward off evil that attempt to overrun the base by way of force.

About Day Z
Realistic "Zombies" with custom animations - These once human creatures will act and behave as if they have a heighten sense of hearing and smell but less sight, on top of that they use motion captured animations such as walking and eating from your unconscious body. If you look into any built up area you'll see them walking around waiting for their next victim which dares to venture in.
New weapons and vehicles! - Ever felt like you needed a Crossbow? Or maybe a less military like weapon? If you have then this is perfect for you as we have both of these created to high quality standards all ready for your use in this wasteland. On top of that you can even pick up the bolts fired from the Crossbow to reuse! Not only that we also have created custom vehicles which can be repaired and ridden around to show the world what you're made of!
Custom Medical System - ArmA II's magic medic feature is a thing of the past with this medical system - If you get shot, expect to bleed and to lose blood until you're bandaged up. Lost too much blood? Then expect to fall over unconscious. If you get shot in the leg then you won't be able to walk until you get morphine so you can man up. Pain is also a factor taken into consideration so without pain killers after taking an injury you'll continue to shake. This is medical at it's best!
Persistent Server - Fed up of spending so many hours working towards a goal or finding supplies and then the server crashes on you losing all your progress? Well with the DayZ server all stat's are saved to our external database so where ever you log off, whatever you have will be keep on you next time you come back in. This means you can spend however long you want doing what you want to do. As long as you don't die during the night!
Tons of new objects - We haven't just added in big things like weapons, we take pride in little details so expect to find things such as water canteens, a number of canned foods, junk and car parts (Along with more!) each of which have their own models, textures and UI imagery, once again all created to that high quality you expect in a full scale modification and we're sure you won't be disappointed with it. Nothing has been rushed.
Hunting and Survival - Eating and drinking is a core part of gameplay, you can tell if you need something by a very subtle GUI which doesn't effect the atmosphere, and if you don't fulfil those needs. You'll die. Wandering animals can killed and gutted (with the right tools) to gain access to their meat which can be eaten so you live longer but also to gain blood. For once these animals actually have a use.
Heavy Optimization - The DayZ server has been designed to give the best play possible. Custom coding and edits have created a smooth running world which can easily have thousands of zombies spawned at once!
And Much More! - The only way to find out - is to survive!

On September 3, Blizzard will release Diablo III for Xbox 360 and PS3. Today, several new screenshots for the console versions were released at E3. The new console versions have been custom-tailored with a new user interface, intuitive control system, and much more.
From the Press Release
A new legion of heroes will soon rise up and take a stand against the Lord of Terror. On September 3, Diablo III will make its console debut on the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in the U.S., Canada, Spanish-speaking Latin America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
In preparation for the upcoming launch, select retailers in these regions are now taking preorders for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, which will be available at a suggested retail price of $59.99. Both console versions of Diablo III will be fully localized in English, German, French, Latin American Spanish, European Spanish, Russian, Italian, Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese. Further release details, including retail availability in Brazil, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia, as well as the preorder availability in Russia, will be announced at a later date.
The console versions of Diablo III have been custom-tailored for gamepad-driven action, with a dynamic camera perspective that puts your hero front and center, as well as an all-new user interface and an intuitive control system that make vanquishing evil feel like second nature. Players can take on the vile denizens of the Burning Hells alone or in a party of up to four via same-screen local cooperative play or online over PlayStation Network or Xbox LIVE. In addition, the game supports parties composed of both local and online players. Once gamers experience the rush of Diablo III’s unique brand of hack-and-slash gameplay from the comfort of their couch, Sanctuary will never be the same.
Players who preorder either console version of Diablo III will receive an exclusive in-game item: the Infernal Helm, which grants an experience point boost to any character who wears it, accelerating their progression as they rise in power. Certain retailers will also offer limited-edition preorder bonuses—check with your local retailer for further information.
“Playing Diablo III on a big screen with your friends brings a whole new level of intensity to the game, and with all of the control and interface adaptations we’ve made, it’s extremely fun to play on PS3™ and Xbox 360,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “In addition to the fine-tuning we’ve done for the console versions, we’re also including major content and design updates we’ve made to the PC version over the past year, so players can expect an epic Diablo gaming experience when the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions launch in September.”
In Diablo III, players take on the role of one of five heroic characters—barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk, or demon hunter—and embark on a perilous quest to save the world of Sanctuary from the corrupting forces of the Burning Hells. As players make their way from the demon-besieged town of New Tristram to the Diamond Gates of the High Heavens, they’ll engage in pulse-pounding combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses, grow in experience and ability, acquire artifacts of incredible power, and meet key characters who’ll join them in battle or aid them along the way.
Diablo III was originally released for Windows and Macintosh PC on May 15, 2012 and within 24 hours became the fastest-selling PC game of all time. As of December 31, 2012, Diablo III had sold through more than 12 million copies worldwide.

A brand spanking new and very safe for work trailer has hit the interwebs in promotion of Steven C. Miller's film Under the Bed (review) and we have it ready and waiting for you!
Under the Bed, the new horror/thriller from the producers of V/H/S and director Steven C. Miller (The Aggression Scale, Silent Night), stars Jonny Weston, the young star of Chasing Mavericks, and Gattlin Griffith (Green Lantern, Changeling). Written by Eric Stolze, the film also stars Peter Holden, Musetta Vander, and Kelcie Stranahan. It tells the story of two brothers who team up to battle the monster living under their bed.
XLrator Media will release the film July 19th.
Every child knows about the monster under the bed—Neal Hausman’s mistake was trying to fight it. Neal (Jonny Weston) has returned from a two-year exile following his tragic attempt to defeat the monster, only to find his father ticking ever closer to a breakdown, a new stepmother who fears him, and his little brother, Paul (Gattlin Griffith), terrorized by the same monster. While Neal and Paul work together to try to fight the nocturnal menace, their parents are taking desperate measures to get the family back to normal. With no support from their parents, the brothers have nothing to rely on but each other and courage beyond belief.
The first trailer from Anchor Bay's The Demented has landed in our laps, and we've flipped it here for your zombie-loving hearts to ingest. Check it out, and look for the flick on DVD and Blu-ray soon!
From the Press Release
Horror films often take their cue from daily newspaper headlines, feeding on the all-too-real fears of the everyday world. Like the best science fiction, sometimes horror lies just around the corner or beyond the bend of what we know. On July 30th, Anchor Bay Films unleashes the biological warfare thriller The Demented on Blu-ray™/DVD combo pack and DVD. From the creative minds behind I Spit On Your Grave and A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Demented is a terrifying excursion into a plague-infected world...where one moment off guard is all that keeps us from becoming them.
With a hot cast including Sarah Butler (I Spit On Your Grave), Brittney Alger (21 Jump Street), Kayla Ewell (“The Vampire Diaries”), Richard Kohnke (“The Carrie Diaries”) and Michael Welch (The Twilight Saga franchise), The Demented will have you on the edge of your seat until the very last frame! SRP for the Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack is $29.99 and $24.98 for the DVD.
The Demented follows six college friends as they meet up for a carefree weekend in a beautiful rural home. A terrorist missile attack in a nearby town infects much of the townspeople with a deadly virus that induces rabies-like symptoms...with devastating consequences. Ravenous and fast, the infected townspeople turn their sights on the vacation home where the friends are gathered...and are now barricaded. How long can they hide? Even with the infected “sleeping” in the streets, can they make their escape? If so, to what?
Producer/director Andrew van den Houten of Modernciné announced today that his company has tapped Final Destination creator Jeffrey Reddick to adapt The Undertakers, the first in a series of young-adult books by Ty Drago.
The books, described as “Spy Kids crossed with The Walking Dead” centers on Will Ritter, a high school student who begins to see that some of the people around him are “Deaders,” inter-dimensional entities that take over the bodies of the dead and use them as hosts.
When Will is recruited by a group of kids who are also gifted with “The Sight,” he discovers that he holds the secret to stopping this new type of terrifying invasion.
Jeffrey Reddick (pictured above), whose Final Destination franchise has made over a half a billion dollars worldwide said: “I’ve been trying to find a project to do with Andrew for years, and when I read Ty’s book, I knew this was the one. It’s a unique concept with compelling characters and a fun mixture of adventure, cool sci-fi, and intense horror.”
Modernciné, which has made a name for itself by producing dark and edgy material, including Jack Ketchum’s The Girl Next Door and The Woman, definitely sees The Undertakers as the start of a new teen franchise.
"With Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson's All Cheerleaders Die in post-production, The Undertakers is yet another potential franchise that moves our brand toward larger audiences. Mr. Reddick is the ultimate fanboy of these types of films, and his success is proven. His vision for adapting Ty Drago's awesomely original book series is exactly what we want to bring to the big screen. The Undertakers gives us chance to share the horror genre with the younger underserved fans as well," said Modernciné’s van den Houten.
“Jeffrey Reddick has done more than simply capture the spirit of The Undertakers. He's brought them to life, with all the action and horror and humanity that goes along with that. His screenplay honored me almost as much as it blew me away!” said author Drago.
So far, two of the critically acclaimed Undertakers books have been published by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky: The Undertakers: Rise of the Corpses and The Undertakers: Queen of the Dead.
Look for more as it comes!
Ready to witness the reimaging of the legendary lumberjack Paul Bunyan as a monstrous, axe-wielding movie maniac? You only have to tune in to Syfy tomorrow night. Yep, tomorrow night. Because Thursday nights are now the new night for Syfy Original movies.
The premiere of Axe Giant (formerly the Wrath of Paul Bunyan) starts things off in a big way.
The filmmakers sent out a press release letting us all know everything we need to in order to prepare for a giant mongoloid Paul Bunyan hacking and slashing his way to Syfy tomorrow night.
From the Press Release
AXE GIANT: THE WRATH OF PAUL BUNYAN, the new horror/creature feature from producer/director Gary Jones (BOOGEYMAN 3) and executive producer Jeff Miller, will get a Syfy premiere on Thursday, June 13th, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). The movie will be retitled simply AXE GIANT for Syfy.
“It’s great to be in business with Syfy again,” says Jones. “I have had a good run with almost all my movies airing on the network, starting with my first film, MOSQUITO, and am very happy to add AXE GIANT to the lineup.”
AXE GIANT won the Audience Award at the Shockfest Film Festival in November and tied for most awards won. Film Radar named it one of the Top Indie Horror Films of 2012, with reviewer Jonathan Weichsel saying that it is “a real fun ride. You rarely see this kind of genre film made today with so much care.”
The movie recently played at the Motor City Nightmares and Texas Frightmare Weekend conventions.
“We’re excited to be airing on Syfy,” says Miller. “We look forward to reaching such a large audience with this unique take on Paul Bunyan lore.”
AXE GIANT is a contemporary take on the tall tale of lumberjack Paul Bunyan. Kids at a first-offenders’ boot camp discover that the legend of Paul Bunyan is real, but is much more horrifying than they could have imagined. The survivors must team up with the local sheriff to stop the 15-foot giant’s new rampage of terror. The movie stars genre vet Joe Estevez, Dan Haggerty (TV's “Grizzly Adams”), Tom Downey (Syfy's WAR OF THE WORLDS and JOLLY ROGER: MASSACRE AT CUTTER’S COVE), and Tim Lovelace (MOSQUITO). Amber Connor, Jesse Kove, Kristina Kopf, Clifton Williams, Victoria Ramos, Jill Evyn, and former WWF wrestler Chris Hahn round out the cast. This is the first major role for Kove, son of veteran actor Martin Kove (THE KARATE KID 1-3, RAMBO).
Miller (BALLISTICA, HELLBLOCK 13) and Jones wrote and produced through their company, Kinetic Filmworks, along with newcomer Jason Ancona. Robert Kurtzman's Creature Corps handled the bulk of makeup FX, with Kurtzman (creator of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN) and Philip R. Garrett (HORRORS OF WAR) joining the team as co-producers. Gary Jones’ Acme Art FX created more than 500 visual effects shots for the film.
Edward Douglas of Midnight Syndicate composed the score. Country punkabilly singer Hick’ry Hawkins wrote and performed the original theme song, “The Ballad of Paul Bunyan.” AXE GIANT is currently receiving a limited theatrical release.
Fans lined up for hours! Horror celebrities! A jam-packed red carpet! Screaming! Laughing! Crying! Yep, it all went down at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood last night as Hatchet III made its premiere, and we have DOZENS of images from the event for you!
Check out our Hatchet III reviews!
HATCHET III is set to open in New York City's Cinema Village and in Los Angeles at Laemmle Music Hall on June 14th. Opening week will feature special appearances by cast and crew, followed by Q&A's at each location. Additional cities will be announced at a later date.
Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder return in HATCHET III and are joined by Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Derek Mears (Friday the 13th 2009), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs), and others.
HATCHET III continues the tale of the now-iconic villain Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). As a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and carnage left behind from the first two films, Marybeth (Danielle Harris) hunts down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.
The sequel, which was filmed outside of New Orleans, Louisiana, from late May to mid-June, 2012, is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films and Hatchet III writer/executive producer Adam Green's Los Angeles-based ArieScope Pictures.
Back in 2006, when Bloody Disgusting was pretty much the sole horror website in town, we caught wind of, and championed (with the help of SpookyDan) an indie slasher by the name of Hatchet. Adam Green took his childhood obsession of 80′s slashers and created his own lore, featuring Victor Crowley. Even though films like Saw, Hostel, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and House of 1,000 Corpses paved the way for Green, he was the first to translate that into an indie production – while also injecting some fun into a decade littered by the term “torture porn.” At the time, he not only plastered the screen with insane amounts of gore, but also cast horror icons (Robert Englund, Tony Todd and Kane Hodder) in fan fodder that was reminiscent of Rob Zombie’s House of 1,000 Corpses. It was “cool” back in 2006. Two sequels later, Hatchet plays more like a Friday the 13th fan film than an original slasher that could elevate the genre. It’s a bit stale.
BJ McDonnell directs this time around, but the screenplay is still by Green. This ties McDonnell’s hands and turns him basically into a “work for hire.” Instead of turning this franchise into something special, it sort of treads in similar waters, hoping that a higher body count is enough to impress the “Hatchet Army.”
Hatchet III opens immediately after the last film’s finale, Marybeth (played once again by Danielle Harris) has apparently just finished off Crowley. He sits right back up (an homage to Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th films) and engages her in one “final” battle that ends in epic form. It’s astoundingly violent, chaotic and fun. Marybeth drops into the Sheriff’s station with Crowley’s scalp, “I killed him.” He’s dead, for now.
While a team is sent to investigate the grounds and clean up all the bodies, Marybeth sits in prison, acts like a complete jerk, and (literally) spits in the face of multiple police trying to help. This time Caroline Williams is the new “old school” horror actress to join the motley crew, starring as Amanda, an ex-reporter hoping to clear her name after embarrassing herself with a Crowley piece. She knows that Marybeth can prove her right after all these years and simultaneously lift the curse that resurrects Victor night after night. They embark on an extremely boring adventure to Sid Haig’s (another cameo!) house to collect the ashes of Crowley’s father…
Meanwhile, the cleanup crew is decimated by Crowley and a new team is sent in, this one headed by Derek Mears (another horror icon, get it?!). Mears is actually pretty great in his role as Hawes, playing a bully with way too much confidence. Clearly the stage is set for a battle between him and Crowley.
From here on out the audience will enjoy a plethora of death sequences that range from beheadings to entire spinal columns being ripped out. The story, well, who gives a shit at this point as it clearly gets lost in its effort to BE the ultimate Friday the 13th film…
It’s not. One reason is because it’s a Hatchet movie. Another reason? Well, Victor Crowley kind of sucks. While I’m not insulting the film’s effects crew, who did a tremendous job, Crowley is a poor man’s rendering of Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th Part 2. With him running around roaring like a bear and clearly being shown in more than one place at the same time, it becomes apparent that what we’re watching is, as I stated before, a Friday the 13th fan film. It’s incredibly disappointing to me that no effort was taken to elevate Crowley to a new level… instead Green injects a loophole that brings Crowley back to his original form each and every night. As a “repeater” he’s immortal in his initial form, disallowing him from sustaining further deformities or physical injuries for more than one night. So Hatchet III basically becomes a rehash of the first two films. Been there, done that.
This comes as a shock as Green clearly listened to critics after the second entry, he even pokes fun at himself showing he learned from his mistakes (when a character starts to explain the mythology, again, another character immediately shuts him up). But the biggest problem is that he doesn’t seem to understand that “goofy” isn’t the same as “fun.” Hatchet III rights the ship a bit with the humor, but the characters play as hokey instead of deadpan serious. Humor should lay in the situation, not because Adam Green makes two cameos as a Marti Gras partier in a cell opposite Danielle Harris. Still, he deserves some props for injecting humor and giving us some lighter fare that’s more entertaining to watch…
The biggest upside, besides the gore, is the film’s pacing. Other than Amanda and Marybeth’s side plot that curbs the energy, Hatchet III tears along on a rapid pace. It’s essentially 100% better than Hatchet II.
I can’t speak for the entire horror community, but I feel as if they want to see elevated horror in 2013. Filmmakers should be showing their love and admiration for classics by furthering the genre (see You’re Next) instead of harking back to the classics with 100 cameos and geek references (Crowley sits up Jason-style twice). I think McDonnell did an absolutely incredible job with what he was given and at the very least delivers some gore and thrills that hardcore horror fans are going to eat up. I had a pretty good time, even though I couldn’t shake the feeling I was watching a 10-year-old’s vision of Friday the 13th.
Earlier today, developer Bohemia Interactive released a handful of new screenshots from the upcoming DayZ standalone, and now, we’re getting our first look at the game in action. Now, before you dive into the video I have waiting for you after the jump, remember, this is alpha footage. That means it’s buggy and unpolished. The final product will look and play significantly better than what’s being showed off at E3 right now.
As I’ve said before, director Steven C. Miller’s Under the Bed is pretty much the opposite of the V/H/S movies. Traditionally shot, slow burn, it’s a more classic sort of tale. Now we have a green band trailer that sells many of the same components as the red band version with some sligt differences.
Opening July 19 from XLRator Media, “Every child knows about the monster under the bed—Neal Hausman’s mistake was trying to fight it. Neal (Jonny Weston, Chasing Mavericks) has returned from a two-year exile following his tragic attempt to defeat the monster, only to find his father ticking ever closer to a breakdown, a new stepmother who fears him, and his little brother Paul (Gattlin Griffith, Green Lantern, Changeling), terrorized by the same monster. While Neal and Paul work together to try and fight the nocturnal menace, their parents are taking desperate measures to get the family back to normal. With no support from their parents, the brothers have nothing to rely on but each other, and courage beyond belief.” Jonny Weston, Gattlin Griffith, Peter Holden, Musetta Vander and Kelcie Stranahan star. The film was penned by Eric Stolze who wrote the upcoming Late Phases.

The incredibly well reviewed (and deservedly so) new flick You're Next is set to hit the UK and the States soon, but right now we have a new trailer for you to check out courtesy of our pals with the awesome accents!
The Adam Wingard-directed film stars Nick Tucci, Wendy Glenn, AJ Bowen, Joe Swanberg, Margaret Laney, Amy Seimetz, Ti West, Calvin Reeder, Larry Fessenden, Kate Lyn Sheil, Barbara Crampton, Rob Moran, and Sharni Vinson.
The Davison family comes under attack from a terrifying group of sadistic murderers during a family reunion getaway. Barricaded in their secluded vacation home, they fight off a barrage of axes, crossbows, and machetes from both inside and outside the house. However, the masked killers didn't count on Erin (Vinson), the young girlfriend of the eldest Davison son whose mysterious past has made her very difficult to kill.
