New Alien: Isolation Video Creates the Creature

Thu, 03/13/2014 - 14:12

It's really hard to not get excited about Alien: Isolation, if only because it really seems to be the Alien game that we all want to play. Still, Sega has disappointed in the past so our expectations are pretty tempered. That being said, wow, does this latest video make us drool!

From the Press Release
The latest Alien: Isolation trailer goes behind the scenes in the studio, talking to the team creating the Alien. Terrifying, unstoppable and totally unique, this is an enemy you need to avoid at all costs.

He’s hunting you, using his senses, his instincts, to hunt you down and kill you. He’s intelligent, unpredictable, and extremely dangerous; and nowhere is safe.

Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror game capturing the fear and tension evoked by Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic film. Players find themselves in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger as an unpredictable, ruthless Xenomorph is stalking and killing deep in the shadows. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions, and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive. Alien: Isolation will be available in late 2014 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.

Game Description
Developed by Creative Assembly, creator of the award-winning Total War strategy series, Alien: Isolation pits players against the deadliest killer in the Universe 15 years after the events of Alien. Set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger, the game focuses on Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, who enters a desperate battle for survival as she tries to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance.

As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien.

Key Features:
Overcome an ever-present deadly threat – Experience persistent fear as a truly dynamic and reactive Alien uses its senses to hunt you down and respond to your every move.

Improvise to survive – Hack systems, scavenge for vital resources, and craft items to deal with each situation. Will you evade your enemies, distract them, or face them head on?

Explore a world of mystery and betrayal – Immerse yourself in the detailed setting of Sevastopol, a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. Encounter a rich cast of inhabitants in a world scarred by fear and mistrust.

Scarlett Johansson Strips Down for New Under the Skin Poster

Thu, 03/13/2014 - 14:03

Over the past two days we've seen no less than 10 new pieces of artwork for the upcoming Scarlett Johansson flick Under the Skin including this one, of which we have to ask... DOES IT MAKE YOU HORNY, BABY? DOES IT?

In the film Johansson's character scours remote highways and back roads in Scotland for human prey.

Under the Skin arrives March 14th in the UK, April 4th in New York and Los Angeles, and April 11th everywhere else.

Synopsis
From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial — or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring this succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again.

Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.

Insidious Duo Ride The Mule into SXSW

Thu, 03/13/2014 - 13:00

We are not entirely sure how Dread-worthy this flick is gonna be, but being that it stars everyone's favorite paranormal investigating team of Angus Sampson and Leigh Whannell along with Hugo Weaving, and the fact that its premise alone makes us ache, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention it.

Or at least show you the poster...

The Mule is directed by Sampson and Tony Mahony and is written by Whannell and Sampson.

Synopsis
In 1983 a naive man detained by Australian Federal Police has lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach. Alone and afraid, ‘the mule’ makes a desperate choice to withhold the evidence… literally. Defying his bodily functions, ‘the mule’ inadvertently drags the cops, the criminals, and his family deep into the bowels of hell, confirming – “it’s what’s inside that counts.”

Get Your First Look at Matt Ryan as Constantine

Thu, 03/13/2014 - 12:24

NBC has released the first promotional image from its "Constantine" pilot, and of course we have a look at it right here for you. Check it out, and let us know your thoughts!

From the Press Release:
As production begins on the new pilot "CONSTANTINE" — from executive producers Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer and director Neil Marshall — NBC, Warner Bros. Television, and DC Entertainment are today releasing the first official image of series star Matt Ryan in character as John Constantine.

“I’ve been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics’ covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat,” said executive producer David S. Goyer.

"CONSTANTINE" follows enigmatic and irreverent Liverpool con-man-turned-occult-detective John Constantine, who is reluctantly thrust into the role of defending our world against dark forces from beyond.

Featured in hundreds of comic book issues, John Constantine has been a DC Comics staple since his first appearance as a supporting character in Swamp Thing in 1985. The character was subsequently featured in his own bestselling Hellblazer and Constantine comic book series.

UK native Matt Ryan (Layer Cake, "The Tudors," "Torchwood") stars as the title character.

The "CONSTANTINE" pilot is executive produced by Daniel Cerone ("The Mentalist," "Dexter") and David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight films, Man of Steel). Neil Marshall (The Descent, "Game of Thrones") is directing from a teleplay by Daniel Cerone with story by Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer.

"CONSTANTINE" is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television and is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.

Look for lots more soon!

The Den Director Zachary Donohue Talks Voyeurism, Found Footage, and Webcams

Thu, 03/13/2014 - 12:00

The film The Den (review) brings a whole new, and much-needed, twist to the found-footage sub-genre of horror. Recently director and co-writer Zachary Donohue sat down with Dread Central to talk about his film.

For starters, Donohue discussed what he hoped to convey to the audience with The Den. "This is unlike any found footage movie you've ever seen," he said. "We wanted to create a movie that felt like you were on your own computer screen."

He added, "We wanted to convey this voyeuristic sense that maybe you shouldn't be watching this movie because you're privy to this character's emails, her chats. We really just wanted to tap into that idea of voyeurism."

But more than just peeping in on someone's life, Donohue also wanted The Den to portray the internet as it actually exists. "We wanted to create a funhouse," he said. "This is a movie about the internet, and there's a lot of weird and wild stuff out there. We wanted to generate a lot of scares but say something about the internet right now and present a kinda funny commentary about that. There are some moments in the movie where you should laugh and find [them] funny, not just scary."

The inspiration for the film came from an experience Donohue's writing partner, Lauren Thompson, had that was reenacted quite specifically in the film. "Lauren and I both moved together to LA, and she got a job working for this chat roulette site," Donohue said. "She would go around and poll people about their opinions on the site. So it was a noble cause, but everyone who was on the site was kind of a troll and they would either divert the conversation or just be really weird and silly. She came across this still image of a girl and had a really weird text conversation with her saying, 'Hey, why don't you turn your webcam on? It's a little creepy talking to this disembodied voice...' Well, she was typing to it so it wasn't a voice. She was like, 'This is really weird.' So we just started playing scenarios out in our heads like, 'Hey, what if this is a guy, or what if somebody turned on the camera and you witnessed a murder?' So we really liked that setup. From there we presented it in a traditional slasher formula. And I've always been a big horror guy since I was a kid and always wanted to make a movie like Dario Argento or in the vein of Halloween or The Burning."

Of course the unique thing about The Den is basically the entire film appears to be footage captured on webcams. This obviously would present Donohue with some challenges he wouldn't get if filming in a more traditional style. He spoke about how the webcam approach affected his work. "When we wrote our first draft, we realized a lot of the scares were sort of the same so we had to generate different things as opposed to just a creepy guy showing up behind the girl's shoulder," Donohue said. "A lot of thought went into how we should craft interesting moments that are scary that feel like a traditional horror movie with angles and cutaways. We also wanted to see how we could use the limitations of the webcams to our advantage. It's pretty scary that a lot of times you can't see what's off-frame, and we really wanted to play around with all of the best scenarios for scares with those limitations."

And although it isn't exactly a blood-soaked film, The Den does have some impressive effects. "We did manage to get a few good gags in, but at the end of the day, it was really how can we pull off these violent acts while servicing the story," Donohue said. "It's more about the story; how does the gore serve the story and feel real as opposed to a regular slasher where Jason cuts someone's head off and it's all about that."

Finally, Donohue spoke about Melanie Papalia. She is the lead actress and the face of The Den. There aren't many moments in the movie without Papalia in them so it was important to get just the right actress to play the part of Elizabeth Benton. "The casting audition was very intense because really the movie is all Elizabeth," Donohue said. "So with Melanie we wanted to see if she was interesting when she's not doing much and when she's big, when the scares are happening, can she scream well. That's always important for these kinds of movies. But also, does she bring that intensity that's going to put the audience on the edge of their seats? I'm very delighted that she took the leap of faith because there were a lot of scenes we were doing where it was very bizarre and unnatural. My direction would be like, 'Eyes to the left and imagine there's a thing on the side of the screen. Now move your eyes to the right.' A lot of small things that, when we were done, she'd be asking, 'Was that right?' I'd be able to tell her that it was going to look great, and she'd be really excited about it. Melanie is a very cool person, and she loves horror movies and has always wanted to be in one. It was great working with her because we were both kind of starting out. I'm happy we did this together."

From director Zach Donohue comes The Den, starring Melanie Papalia, Adam Shapiro, David Schlactenhaufen, and Matt Riedy.

Look for it from IFC Midnight in select theaters and on VOD on Friday, March 14th, 2014.

Synopsis
After receiving a grant for her graduate thesis, Elizabeth Benton (Papalia) logs on to a video chat site known as THE DEN on a mission to explore the habits of its users. During one of her random video chats, Elizabeth watches in horror as a teenage girl is gruesomely murdered in front of her webcam. While the police dismiss it as a viral prank, Elizabeth believes what she saw is real and takes it upon herself to find the truth.

Her life quickly spirals out of control as she gets pulled deeper into the darkest recesses of the internet. And eventually Elizabeth finds herself trapped in a twisted game in which she and her loved ones are targeted for the same grisly fate as the first victim.

Unmask the Official Teaser and New Images from The Laughing Mask

Thu, 03/13/2014 - 11:30

It was November of 2012 when we first heard about Michael Aguiar's The Laughing Mask, and an update has finally come along with the film's official teaser trailer and some new images. Check 'em out and enjoy a good chuckle!

From the Press Release:
The Laughing Mask is an indie horror co-production from America and Brazil from writer/director Michael Aguiar and production house Bravestarr Pictures. The Laughing Mask was shot and completed in Florida over a rigorous 28-day shooting schedule.

The Director of Photography, William Schweikert, used a Red Epic camera to capture all of the horrifying imagery, while Daniel Mazikowski (The Sadist) handled all the special effects. The cast is compromised of several rising stars including Fran Rafferty, Inge Uys, Gabriel Lee, Sheyenne Rivers, Matt Ganey, and Thomas Noel Smith.

The film’s story involves the loss of family. Jake has lost his wife to a deranged killer – The Laughing Mask. Now Jake’s daughter is missing, and he will stop at nothing to get her back. Jake must team up with Det. Kate O’Malley in order to find The Laughing Mask’s lair and the madman himself. In darkness a father will face one of the most murderous killers ever known: The Laughing Mask.

Director Aguiar says of the teaser and the film: “My idea for this film was to have a thriller and horror film in the vein of Angel Heart (1987) and John Carpenter’s Halloween; I wanted to keep all the effects as practical as possible. This is an old school horror film, and I hope fans will be pleased with the results.”

Synopsis:
The Laughing Mask begins with Jake Johnson. After the brutal death of his wife, Jaycee, and the disappearance of his daughter, Barbara, Jake will do whatever is necessary to capture the man the media has dubbed “The Laughing Mask.” As the corpses begin to pile up, Jake has to find help in the detective skills of Kate O’Malley. Together they will play a deadly cat and mouse game with a killer in order to find Jake’s daughter and avenge the death of his wife. But The Laughing Mask knows of Jake’s desires for revenge, and he has plans of his own.

Look for release details later this year, and for more info in the meantime visit The Laughing Mask on Facebook.

The Devil's Knot Untied in New Trailer

Mon, 03/10/2014 - 20:12

Image Entertainment is bringing The Devil's Knot to us on May 9th, and right now we have the full trailer for you cats with a penchant for true crime cases. Lord knows they rarely come as compelling as the story surrounding the West Memphis 3.

Synopsis:
From Academy Award nominated director Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter) and starring Academy Award winner Colin Firth (The King's Speech) and Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line), comes the true story of a crime that would grip a nation for almost two decades and that continues to be one of the most high-profile trials of all time. Based on the bestseller by Mara Leveritt, DEVIL'S KNOT recounts the trial and conviction of teenagers Damien Echols; Jessie Misskelley, Jr.; and Jason Baldwin in the savage murder of three 8-year-old boys in the small town of West Memphis, Arkansas, in 1993.

Dubbed the so-called "West Memphis Three," the defendants, each of them a social outsider, quickly found themselves up against a community crying out for justice as well as a lack of physical evidence that led police to believe the murders were carried out as part of a satanic occult ritual. Firth stars as Ron Lax in the film, a local private investigator and one of the first people to support the teens in their defense. Witherspoon plays Pam Hobbs, the mother of one of the murdered boys. Together, they allow an uncompromising look at both sides of a town that was torn apart… and will probably never be the same again.

SXSW 2014: Mondo Unleashes Incredible Godzilla Poster

Mon, 03/10/2014 - 17:35

The restored Japanese version of the mother of all Kaiju movies, 1954's Godzilla, or Gojira for you purists out there, will be playing the SXSW festival on Tuesday, March 11, at 9:30pm, and attendees will receive a copy of a limited edition Mondo poster in promotion of the 2014 film. Check it out!

From the Press Release
A new restoration of GODZILLA: THE JAPANESE ORIGINAL, the monster classic that has spawned six decades of sequels, imitations, and remakes, will debut April 12 at the fifth TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood, followed by a national release beginning at New York’s Film Forum, April 18-24.

GODZILLA was originally released here in 1956 as Godzilla: King of the Monsters, an atrociously cut, dubbed and re-edited version that inserted American actor Raymond Burr into the action; only an hour was used of the original’s 98 minute running time. Burr does not appear in the original, uncut version, which has an all-Japanese cast including Kurosawa regular Takashi Shimura, who the very same year appeared as leader of the Seven Samurai.

As directed by Ishirô Honda, with special effects by the legendary Eiji Tsuburaya, GODZILLA: THE JAPANESE ORIGINAL is much darker in tone than the dumbed-down U.S. release version, which entirely eliminated the original’s underlying theme: in the Japanese version, the monster is clearly a metaphor for the nuclear menace and the film itself a cry for world peace and disarmament. The American version also cut out all of the original’s astonishing Strangelove-like black humor.

The original GODZILLA holds up as one of the greatest science fiction/monster films ever made, boasting still-impressive special effects, as the radiation-breathing prehistoric monster, awakened after millennia by Hydrogen Bomb testing – and impervious to repeated shelling by the Japanese army – wreaks destruction on Tokyo.

GODZILLA became Toho Studio’s #1 box office hit of 1954 (its #2 that year was Seven Samurai) and was so popular worldwide that the company has since produced nearly 30 sequels and remakes; a statue near Toho headquarters in Tokyo pays tribute to their most valuable property. In 1984, the prestigious film journal Kinema Junpo rated it among the top 20 Japanese films of all time. In 1989, a published survey of 370 Japanese movie critics, Nihon Eiga Besuto 150 (Best 150 Japanese Films), ranked Godzilla the 27th greatest Japanese feature ever made.

A new American version of Godzilla from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, directed by Gareth Edwards (2010’s Monsters), will be released nationally May 16.

Knights of Badassdom Leaves Forth on its Quest to Home Video

Mon, 03/10/2014 - 17:16

The producer's cut of the flick which is LARPing as a Joe Lynch film, Knights of Badassdom, is coming home to both Blu-ray and DVD; and we have all the details you need to know about its upcoming release.

From the Press Release
Sound the horns and prepare thyself for a most glorious tale of battling knights, spell-casting wizards, fair maidens, and one bloodthirsty demon from the netherworld in KNIGHTS OF BADASSOM.

Starring Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones," The Station Agent), Steve Zahn ("Treme," Dallas Buyers Club), Ryan Kwanten ("True Blood," Dead Silence), and Summer Glau ("Arrow," "Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles"), this 2014 theatrical release called "a blast and a half" (Max Nicholson, IGN) marches onto extras-loaded DVD and Blu-ray editions on April 1 from Entertainment One. Cans't thou handle it?

KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM follows three best friends (Dinklage, Zahn, and Kwanten) and dedicated LARPers (Live Action Role Players) as they take to the woods to reenact a dungeons and dragons-like scenario fresh out of the Middle Ages. Trouble arises after they unwittingly conjure up some serious evil in the form of a blood-lusting Succubus from the pits of hell. And as fantasy and reality collide on the Fields of Evermore in an all-out epic battle of make-believe wizards, demons, and assorted mythical creatures, their courage and friendship are put to the test as they attempt to vanquish the evil they have summoned. Will the group prove to simply be foam sword-wielding LARPers or true "Knights of Badassdom?" Art thou ready to find out?

Co-starring Danny Pudi ("Community"), Maragrita Levieva ("Revenge," Adventureland), and Jimmi Simpson ("House of Cards," Date Night), the Blu-ray and DVD editions conjure up some magical extras including interviews with Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn, and director Joe Lynch; a behind-the-scenes featurette, a Summer Glau: Hottie Montage, and the film's San Diego Comic-Con panel.

Mr. Jones Trailer Arrives to Send Shivers

Mon, 03/10/2014 - 17:08

The official home video trailer has arrived for Mr. Jones, and we have every startling second of it for you right here. That is, if you find it startling. If not, we have every regular second of it for you anyway. We like to be flexible.

From the Press Release
“Who is Mr. Jones?” To some, he is an enigmatic artist with a unique vision of humanity and our place in the spiritual universe. To others, his very name conjures unimaginable primal fears. But for two young people, he will become their worst nightmare...

From Preferred Film & TV’s Ross M. Dinerstein, the producer of the Sundance Film Festival smash hit The Pact and The Divide, comes Mr. Jones, bowing May 6th on Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand from Anchor Bay Films. SRP is $26.99 for the Blu-ray and $24.98 for the DVD.

Having premiered at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in 2013, Mr. Jones will also have an exclusive Los Angeles limited theatrical engagement beginning May 2nd.

Scott (Jon Foster of Stay Alive) and Penny (Sarah Jones of “Sons of Anarchy”) just moved to a remote cabin to escape the pressures of the world and breathe new life into their art. But they’ll soon discover they are not alone: An infamously reclusive artist - known only as "Mr. Jones" - lives nearby. He doesn’t like to be disturbed and only comes out at night when he drags his strange, sinister sculptures deep into the woods. When Scott and Penny’s curiosity leads them too close for Mr. Jones’ comfort, he plunges the young couple into a nightmare world of mayhem, madness, and mind-bending terror.

Diane Neal (“Law & Order: SVU”), Mark Steger (I Am Legend), and David Clennon (John Carpenter’s The Thing) co-star in this startling tale from debut director Karl Mueller (screenwriter of Xavier Gens’ The Divide).

Variety is reporting that Moriarty (pictured) has now landed the lead role in New Line’s Crawlspace. Phil Claydon will direct with The Conjuring’s Peter Safran producing along with Rick Alvarez.

The storyline follows a relocated family who moves into a new home where the previous inhabitants mysteriously were killed by a murderer living in the walls.

Gary Dauberman penned the script. Dave Neustadter and Walter Hamada will oversee for New Line.

Besides her role in “True Detective,” Moriarty has slowly begun building a resume with strong supporting roles in films like Kings of Summer and Fox’s The Watch. She can be seen next in Universal’s Ouija.
