Pepsi’s Recent Controversial Ad is Far More Insidious Than You Know…

Sat, 04/08/2017 - 16:10

Pepsi recently went through a big snafu when people from both the left and right political spectrums joined forces in bashing the company’s latest commercial, which showed Kendall Jenner offering a police officer a can of soda so as to bring peace between protestors and armed forces. The impressions ranged from “I don’t care” to “Sweet bastard son of a hundred maniacs! This is the worst!” Personally, I landed on the former but I can see why people felt the latter.

However, new footage of the commercial has revealed that there is something far darker than we could’ve possibly imagined. It turns out that the Pepsi commercial is actually a series of alien images that are meant to lull us humans into a state of capitalistic greed, forcing us to desperately climb atop one another on the ladder of success.

Oh, wait. I’m wrong. It’s just a parody of John Carpenter’s They Live. But it’s still awesome.

Check it out below!

This gif is highly accurate in the light of recent events

Who Goes There Podcast: Episode 110 – The Devil’s Candy

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 23:37

In an attempt to keep things exciting, we’ve been doing a lot to avoid trailers here at the Who Goes There Podcast. Recently we all saw a trailer for a film called The Devil’s Candy and thought, “That looks badass! We should do an episode!” And so here we are.

It seems like a safe bet, right? I mean, the devil must have some killer candy if he’s able to lure the likes of J.F.K., Emmanuel Lewis, and Lawrence Welk down there. Well, fuckos, we watched The Devil’s Candy while doing the devil’s dandruff. Buckle up.

I am going to be miserable here. There’s no swimming pool, there’s no shopping mall, there’s no cable. Bet you don’t even have a TV. This sure ain’t Beverly Hills; it’s the Who Goes There Podcast Episode 110!

The Who Goes There Podcast is available to subscribe to on iTunes right here. Not an iTunes user? You can listen on our Dread Central page. Can’t get enough? We also do that social media shit. You’ll find us on FacebookTwitterInstagram, Twitch, and YouTube.

9 of the Worst Horror Tattoos – 2017 Edition

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 18:53

As stated in a previous article, as horror fans, we have a tendency to bleed for what we love. Tattoos are probably the most personal way to express your love for something on a permanent basis… but they can also lead to some truly bad life choices.

Below you’ll find 9 more of the worst tattoos we’ve ever seen!

Seen worse? Have worse? Share them with us by emailing, and we’ll post a user-generated gallery! Don’t be ashamed! Celebrate you what you love by traversing that painful road that was lined with good intentions!

So close yet so far!

Dear God, why?!?! Just why??!?

Something tells us he wouldn’t have gotten that tattoo on his chest.

Strangely drawn moose-knuckle aside… Not so thrilling.

Rule #87: Don’t get Jesse Eisenberg tattoos.

Note: There is never a proper place or time for Bieber. Not even Zombie Bieber. Carry on.

Ummm… Christopher Lee as Dracula? We think?

Frustratingly bad because the Monster doesn’t look like the Monster, and the Monster is the focal point of the entire piece. A for effort though.

Rest in Peace: Gloria Charles

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 18:15

Friday the 13th fans have suffered a loss as we’re sad to report that Gloria Charles, who played the cooler than words biker chick Fox in Friday the 13th Part III, is no longer with us.

The news comes from her co-star Larry Zerner, who played Shelly in the film. According to Zerner, who had just found out about Gloria’s passing recently, Charles passed on last December. “I had the great pleasure of working with Gloria on Friday the 13th Part III,” Zerner tells us. “She had a fantastic spirit and energy, and I wish her friends and family the best.

Someone close to her recently posted the following YouTube video celebrating the actress’ memory…

We here at Dread Central would like to offer our sincerest of condolences to Charles’ friends, family members, and constituents. May you forever keep swinging with that killer smile up above, kiddo! Thanks for the memories. Godspeed.

The Walking Dead Continues to Dominate Key Ratings Demo for Unprecedented 5th Year

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 18:06

Who says zombies are yesterday’s news? Certainly not television viewers in that sweet ratings spot of 18- to 49-year-olds! For the first time in TV history, “The Walking Dead” has held on as the #1 show among adults in that age range for the fifth year in a row.

In my humble opinion (a sentiment echoed by several friends and fellow critics), the just-concluded Season 7 was not on par with previous seasons overall; but that obviously didn’t deter a helluva lot of people from tuning in to “TWD” each and every Sunday night. Here are the official details…

From the Press Release:
“The Walking Dead” completed its seventh season Sunday night as the #1 show on television among adults 18-49 for the fifth consecutive year, the only drama in television history to hold the #1 title for five consecutive years. “The Walking Dead” has extended its lead over the #2 program (“Big Bang Theory,” CBS) by 61% among adults 18-49. “Talking Dead” remains the #1 talk show on television, averaging 4.9 million viewers per week for the just-completed season.

“Robert Kirkman; Scott Gimple; our outstanding executive producing team, cast, and crew, as well as the many partners at AMC and around the world who elevate this unique program, all deserve a heartfelt thank you and congratulations. At the close of its seventh season, ‘The Walking Dead’ remains the number one show on television among adults 18-49 for the fifth consecutive year, a drama record,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios. “It is a tribute to everyone involved that the show continues to surprise and engage, entertain and amaze after 99 episodes… and counting.”

Key Nielsen Highlights for the Season Finale of “The Walking Dead” (L+3) – Episode 7.16; Sunday, April 2, 2017
15.6 million viewers, up 38% from live/same day (growth of 4.3 million)
– 9.7 million Adults 18-49, up 40% from live/same day (growth of 2.8 million), 7.6 national rating
– 10.0 million Adults 25-54, up 40% from live/same day (growth of 2.8 million) 8.3 national rating

This season of “Talking Dead” averaged 4.9 million viewers per episode, including 2.9 million adults 18-49 and 3 million adults 25-54. “The Walking Dead” continues to be the #1 show on television for the fifth consecutive season, unprecedented for a TV drama. In the current television season, AMC currently has three of the top five dramas on cable among both adults 18-49 and 25-54 – “The Walking Dead” at #1, “Fear the Walking Dead” at #3, and “Into the Badlands” at #4.

Gregory Plotkin Slashing Way to Hellfest

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 17:31

Longtime Paranormal Activity editor and director Gregory Plotkin recently found success again editing the mega-hit Get Out, but he’s ready to slide back into the coveted director’s seat and lead us on a journey to Hellfest.

We told you about Hellfest a while back when it had Jennifer Lynch attached to direct, but now according to The Tracking Board Plotkin is in negotiations to direct for CBS Films.

Gale Anne Hurd is producing via her company Valhalla Motion Pictures. CBS Films president Terry Press is a longtime fan of the Hellfest concept, believing it could spark a horror franchise.

In the movie, a Halloween night of fun turns deadly at a horror theme park when a costumed killer begins slaying unsuspecting patrons who believe that it’s all part of the show.

Dead Meat Tackles the Kill Count of the Original Friday the 13th

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 17:16

A new YouTube channel by the name of Dead Meat has sprung up and it’s kicked off its existence by doing a deep dive into the kills of the 1980 iconic slasher Friday the 13th. While I know many of you are reading this and letting out a groan of “Another video listing out the kills of a horror franchise?“, this is different, I promise you! You see, Dead Meat’s James A. Janisse isn’t just listing off the kills in order, he’s going into what makes them special and, in his opinion, which ones stand out as the best and worst of the film!

Janisse is going to be making this a regular weekly thing – the first several episodes are already filmed, he tells us. The plan is to not just have videos for the Friday the 13th franchise but with other horror titles as well, so I recommend going to his channel via the link above, subscribing, and giving him some love!

Upcoming Werewolf Film Bonehill Road Will Feature No CGI

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 17:13

At long last, werewolves are finally making a cinematic comeback with films like WolfCop and Howl reminding us just how much we love lycanthropy. Which is why it might be a good idea to help finance Bonehill Road on Indiegogo.

Todd Sheets has been making movies since the ’80s, with some of his films including Catacombs, Fear of the Dark, and House of Forbidden Secrets. Werewolves have apparently always been his favorite type of monster, so Bonehill Road is something of a passion project for him.

He describes it as being inspired by both The Howling and An American Werewolf in London, with a bit of Dog Soldiers also thrown in. There won’t be any CGI, and the film’s werewolf costume pictured below could be one of our favorite things ever.
