E3 2014: Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Shows off Nemesis System in New Trailer

Wed, 06/11/2014 - 14:28

As if the upcoming Lord of the Rings game, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, couldn’t look any more intriguing, Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment released a new trailer for the upcoming game showcasing some of the intricacies of its main selling point, the nemesis system.

The trailer reveals how past encounters will shape later ones as it promises, "The nemesis system contains personal interaction with your unique enemies. Every enemy will remember their encounters with you."

Defeated enemies can be employed to disrupt the forces of later enemies, while foes that have triumphed over you gloat that they have already defeated you. In a press release Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment says of the game’s nemesis system, "Every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game." This will provide a unique experience on every play-through of the game as they revealed, "No one else will have an exact same Uruk as the game generates unique, dynamically created enemies."

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor takes place on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor as players embody the role of Tallion, brought back from death by a spirit of vengeance.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor will be available for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PS on October 7th, 2014. It is currently available for pre-order here and below.

The MPAA Tangos with Demons - Ratings Here for Deliver Us from Evil and As Above, So Below

Wed, 06/11/2014 - 14:10

In a world filled with necessary evils, I still have to wonder just how necessary an evil the MPAA actually is. At times it seems that films just get rated depending on their mood or who's making them. Two new ratings are here for two big horror flicks. Read on for their verdict!

Scott Derrickson's new film Deliver Us From Evil has officially been rated R by the MPAA for “bloody violence, grisly images, terror throughout, and language.” Look for it in theatres on July 2nd.

New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city. Based upon the book, which details Sarchie’s bone-chilling real-life cases.

John Erick Dowdle's As Above, So Below, which he co-wrote with his brother Drew (The Poughkeepsie Tapes, Quarantine, Devil), has also been handed an R rating for “bloody violence/terror and language throughout.” Look for that one in theatres on August 15.

Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead. A journey into madness and terror, As Above, So Below reaches deep into the human psyche to reveal the personal demons that come back to haunt us all.

Director to Director: Award Winner Richard Gale and Paul Hough Talk The Human Race

Wed, 06/11/2014 - 13:00

Director Paul Hough's The Human Race will be available on VOD, iTunes, and in theaters on Friday, June 13. Recently Hough had a chat with fellow director (and actor in The Human Race) Richard Gale (The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon) about his new movie.

We got a chance to eavesdrop on the Q&A between Hough and Gale so that you can dig the conversation between these two top-notch filmmakers below.

Richard Gale: Up until I met Paul Hough, I had never killed anyone before, in a movie or otherwise. I'm first and foremost a filmmaker - I made the horror comedy short The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon, which went viral on YouTube and is currently being developed into a feature film.

Paul Hough: I met Richard on the festival circuit when my film The Angel played at festivals with his amazing short Criticized. The Angel would win one festival and at the next Criticized would win. We became friends and someone I would run my work by for notes.

RG: Paul sent me the script for The Human Race and I loved it—it was the best script a friend had ever given me to read. In it, I was tickled by this one diabolical psychopath who teamed up with his brothers to kill people in a really clever and terrible way. I remember thinking when I first read it—that would be a fun part to play.

PH: On the seventh day of the shoot we were doing the big extra scene that takes place at the start of the movie. I had asked all of my friends to volunteer and come down to be part of the crowd, and Richard graciously obliged. It was a really long day, and as the crowd started to narrow down by the end of the night, I noticed how charismatic Richard actually was as an actor. Coincidentally, an actor who was supposed to be there never turned up for the shoot ,and it occurred to me there and then that Richard should play that role.

RG: It was the same psychopath character I loved when I read the script. There was no way I'd say no. So I became this completely vile, irredeemable character in the movie. I always thought I could play a psychopath, and I have to confess: It was really fun! This guy I play is truly horrible —we’re talking serious depths of depravity—so it’s not something I’d ever get to do under normal circumstances.

PH: Richard goes on a real killing spree and is responsible for a great deal of the deaths in the movie. He just decides to wait and push anyone who comes his way onto the grass. (If you step onto the grass, you die via head explosion.) As we were approaching shooting these scenes, he came to me with a great idea - and that was to use all of the actors from The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon.

RG: I thought it would just be cool. So I called up the leads, Brian Rohan (the Spoonkiller) and Paul Clemens (Jack Cucchiaio—who also stars in The Beast Within), to appear in cameos in the killing spree sequence. It was like playing make-believe, only a twisted, fucked-up, evil version of make-believe. When The Human Race screened at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, I heard that the audience cheered when something painful happened to my character—which made me feel great! That’s when I thought I might have done okay at being bad. Working on The Human Race taught me that acting evil can really be a very good experience!

Be sure to check out The Human Race on VOD, iTunes, and in theaters on June 13.

Paul McCarthy-Boyington, Eddie McGee, Trista Robinson, T. Arthur Cottam, and Brianna Lauren Jackson star.

For more info on the film, check out the official The Human Race website and like The Human Race on Facebook.

Synopsis
Eighty strangers from all walks of life are ripped out of their daily lives and forced to participate in a brutal race to the death. The rules are simple: Follow the arrows or you will die, step on the grass and you will die, get lapped twice and you will die. Only one participant will survive. Race or die. There can only be one winner, but who will survive and for what purpose?

First Look at Marilyn Monroe Zombie Hunter

Wed, 06/11/2014 - 12:00

Another historical horror mash-up is headed our way courtesy of indie filmmaker Thomas Churchill, and we have a look at it for you. Are you ready for Marilyn Monroe Zombie Hunter, or are the famous dead better off left buried? You tell us!

From the Press Release
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, Syfy’s "Monster Man") 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 bombshell turned zombie slayer. David M. Parks will produce. 


The positive response to the film announcement in March created an internet frenzy around this unique concept. Principal photography is slated to take place in Hollywood, California, in late 2014 under the Church Hill Productions/Apothecary Entertainment banner.

After writing Lazarus: Day of the Living Dead, which will have its worldwide VOD release September 9th (DVD/Blu-ray release December 9th), 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 humanity's last hope against zombie domination. [It] 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 expounded, “with no room for 'cheese.' Horror and Marilyn fans will be proud of the vision I have in store.”
 Churchill adds the film will be “very much an old-school summer event movie... Kill Bill meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They will be very surprised and very pleased with the story we are planning to tell.”

Get a V/H/S: Viral Sneak Peek from Vincent Guastini

Wed, 06/11/2014 - 11:00

FX artist Vincent Guastini shared with DC a quick look at some of his work on the upcoming third chapter in the V/H/S franchise, V/H/S: Viral. Check it out right here, and look for more on this one A/S/A/P!

From the Press Release
Vincent Guastini of V.G.P. Effects & Design Studio, a Hollywood-based company nestled behind the Burbank Airport, has announced his company's involvement with doing two very elaborate effects-laden episodes of the horror hit franchise V/H/S, the latest one being titled V/H/S: Viral.

Vincent at this time cannot go into specifics but promises when the film comes out or is at least closer to its release, he will give more in-depth information and a picture spread about his involvement, which included an army of undead and some animatronic creatures in both episodes. Meanwhile, here are a few exclusive photos that Vincent can share... a more clear glimpse of what has been released in trailers.

"All I can say at this moment is we pulled out all the stops and I was able to convince one of the directors to go practical for the effects and not use CGI. I think we won the battle and also did some miniature effects as well. All I can say is I had a blast working with both Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson, on one episode, and also working with the highly visual, out-of-the-box take Todd Lincoln had on his episode. They were all different as far as the work process in getting to the final outcome, but in both cases I had a blast. I was given full freedom. The directors cared very much about every shot, and we all met or talked through emails and phone conversations several times and had many long conversations and meetings about all the effects. I love working for these guys; they care, they communicate, and above all they have passion, something I greatly admire when working with guys like this who are that on point and picky as well as very attentive to small details about their effects. Also, having producers Chris White and Brad Miska backing me up all the way was a tremendous asset to me and my crew. I can’t wait for this film to come out so I can talk more about our involvement in-depth and how much we did for this film."

Vincent has been in the make-up creature and effects business for over 20 years. His credits include Dogma, Requiem for a Dream, Last of the Mohicans, Letters of Iwo Jima, Saturday Night Live, and more recently, Sushi Girl, The Devil's Carnival, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, the upcoming Bryan Singer-produced horror film The Taking, and Twisted Pictures' new franchise movie Havenhurst.

Win a Copy of Killer Legends on DVD

Wed, 06/11/2014 - 10:30

The documentary Killer Legends will be available on DVD nationwide July 1st from Breaking Glass Pictures, and right now we have your chance to score a copy on us for free. That's right... free. You don't have to do a damn thing other than click for details!

To enter for your chance to win, just send us an email at contests@dreadcentral.com including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS. We’ll take care of the rest.

This contest will end on at 12:01 AM PT on June 30th.

Killer Legends follows filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills as they investigate four timeless legends that continue to haunt the American public. Directed by Zeman, the documentary examines the urban legends of The Candyman, The Killer Clown, The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs, and The Hookman.

The DVD release (SRP $19.99) will also include seven special features on the legendary quartet.

Joshua and Rachel travel to Houston, Texas, where they explore the tainted candy legend parents fear every Halloween. In Columbia, Missouri, they compare The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs legend to the unsolved murder of Janett Christman - a babysitter found murdered in 1950. In Texarkana, Texas, the filmmakers investigate the real-life case of a killer known as The Phantom and how it inspired "The Hook" urban legend. The pair then head to Chicago to answer the question of how clowns became so evil and spooky to the public.

Zeman previously directed the critically acclaimed horror documentary Cropsey and said of the upcoming release, "I'm excited to be working with Breaking Glass Pictures again. They helped me make Cropsey a creepy cult favorite, and I'm looking forward to repeating the same success with Killer Legends."

Killer Legends was produced by Gulp Pictures and Storyville Entertainment in association with Gigantic Pictures. It premiered on March 16th on the Chiller Network.

Synopsis:
Many people believe the scariest urban legends are just modern day folklore, campfire tales of axe-wielding boogeymen, haunted mental institutions, and witches in the woods -- the storylines of our favorite horror movies, but often beneath the surface of these harrowing myths lies a horrific truth that's scarier than any fiction.

Through a chilling blend of investigative journalism and what folklorists call Legendtripping, filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills embark on a dark journey as they investigate four of our most terrifying urban legends and the real-life crimes that may have inspired them. Peeling back the layers of storytelling, from interviews with shocked detectives to traumatized victims, our filmmakers discover a truth more horrifying than they had ever imagined. Unraveling the mystery behind a legacy that refuses to die, this is an attempt to understand not just what we all fear, but more importantly... why we continue to believe.

Special Features:
-Hook: Phantom Revealed (1:10)
-Making Connections (3:59)
-A Cautionary Tale (2:53)
-Babysitter: Close Call (1:47)
-Clowns: Sinister Suburbs (1:52)
-Family Affair (5:11)
-Candyman: Finger Pointing (1:33)

E3 2014: Lots of Blood Shed by the Devil's Third

Tue, 06/10/2014 - 20:41

Thus far Nintendo has been painting pretty pictures with its E3 offerings. Vibrant colors, spinning yarns, smashing brothers... but there is unseen by most... an underworld... a place that is just as real but not as brightly lit... a darkside! *insert spooky stinger here*

No, we're not talking about a "Tales from the Darkside" video game (though that would fucking rule); instead we're talking about the new game from Ninja Gaiden director Tomonobu Itagaki entitled Devil's Third that is coming exclusively to Wii U. Yes, you read that right!

The game had gone into limbo after THQ shut its doors, but now developer Valhalla Games is ready to offer fans a first look trailer that you will see below. Nintendo "really understood my vision," Itagaki told IGN in an earlier interview regarding why the choice to go with Nintendo instead of the two other gaming heavyweights, "so I felt I really had to work with them."

Make no mistake; Itagaki's aforementioned vision is a dark and violent as they come. That's exactly what the Wii U needs! Look for more on this one soon!

First Image from the Set of The Legend of Barney Thomson

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.
