Let’s Eat Edition 1: Roasted Leg Of Lamb With Couscous (Inspired By Hannibal)

Fri, 04/18/2014 - 09:00

In my birthday post last year, I casually mentioned that I love cooking. But what I didn’t state was that I really, really enjoy cooking. I have fun with it. I almost feel like a mad scientist, a culinary Dr. Frankenstein in that I put whatever sounds good together and hope for a tasty result.

Recently, while watching an episode of Hannibal, I was inspired by a dish that he created (only click on that link if you’re caught up on the show). I know, it’s pretty morbid. But sometimes the most unsettling things can create something wonderful. Now, keep in mind that I have absolutely zero formal training. What I did was completely drawn upon from my own experiences with cooking and pretty deciding that I wanted to try something new and crazy.

So, with that in mind, I decided to tackle a roasted leg of lamb with some tricolor couscous as the main side. And since this recipe is inspired by something so ghoulish and macabre, I figured, “Why not share it with the BD audience?”

Below is my step-by-step guide for the meal. With it, you can host your own dinner party.

Ingredients:
Roasted leg of lamb:
One 3-4lb leg of lamb, deboned
1/2 cup prunes
1/2 cup dried apricots
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds
Cooking twine
1-2 large banana leaves
3 cloves of garlic, finely sliced
8-10 small red potatoes cut into bite size chunks
Minced fresh chives

Spice rub:
Coarse sea salt
Whole peppercorns
Red pepper flakes
Cumin
Rosemary leaves

Couscous:
2 cups tricolor couscous
2.5 cups unsalted chicken stock
1 tbsp butter

Prepare the spice rub
I put all of my spices into a mortar and pestle and ground everything together into a fine rub. I opted to go a little light on the red pepper flakes as I didn’t want this to be a hot, spicy dish but instead I just wanted a little bit of warmth.

Prepare the lamb
1. Open up the deboned leg of lamb
2. Cut off any big chunks of fat but make sure to leave a little bit. Fat is where a lot of flavor resides and it will help this roast stay juicy and succulent
3. Sprinkle the spice rub liberally throughout the inside of the leg and then proceed to rub it in, making sure to get into the cracks and crevices
4. Mix the prunes, dried apricots, walnuts, and almonds in a bowl or bag and then place them in the middle of the opened lamb leg. The idea here is that the left and right parts of the leg will close over the mixture, creating a sweet, nutty center. If you want, you can sprinkle some of the garlic slices in the middle as well
5. Wrap the left and right parts of the meat over the center and then tie the whole leg up with cooking twine
6. Between the cooking twine make small, shallow incisions in the meat. Insert the garlic slices into these incisions
7. Wrap the roast in clean, freshly washed banana leaves (it’s okay if they’re a little wet). It’s okay to lightly tie the banana leaves with cooking twine so that it doesn’t fall open
8. Put the wrapped lamb leg into a roasting pan and then put that into the fridge to settle for at least an hour

Cooking the lamb roast:
1. Take the roast out of the fridge and let it get to room temperate (45 minutes to 1 hour)
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
3. While the oven is preheating, you can put the bite size potato chunks in the roasting pan around the lamb. Make sure to drizzle with olive oil so that you get a nice crisp to the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper
4. Put the lamb in the oven near the center
5. It takes about 15-20 minutes per pound, so a 3.5lb roast (which is what I had) took about an hour
6. When the lamb is done, take it out and place the whole thing (minus the potatoes) onto a serving platter. Cut off the banana leaves, exposing the lamb roast
7. Place the lamb roast on a very hot grill for a minute on each side. This will give the roast a really nice char on the outside
8. After taking the roast off the grill, leave it for 10 minutes to settle
9. Put the potatoes in a serving bowl and sprinkle with minced chives

Couscous:
1. Melt the butter in a sauce pot
2. Add the couscous and stir constantly, toasting the couscous (note: do NOT use a plastic stirrer, which is a mistake I made the first time I did this)
3. Once it’s browned a little and you have a rich, nutty smell, add the chicken stock
4. Bring to a boil, cover and then turn off the stove but leave the pot on the burner
5. Check after five minutes. It’s okay if there is a little bit of liquid left as you can stir it in while fluffing the couscous

Serve to friends or family along with a nice red wine. Make sure to pile the lamb, fruits and nuts on top of the couscous while putting the potatoes on the side for a beautiful presentation. For dessert, I poured each person a glass of blackberry mead. I got mine from Schramm’s.

More Rape/Revenge In ‘I Spit On Your Grave 3′ (Exclusive)

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 21:20

We broke the news on the first sequel to the remake, and now have received exclusive word out of Cannes that I Spit On Your Grave 3 is being pre-sold at the market.

At the time of this writing, CineTel Films has yet to hire a writer or director, but have committed to a third round of rape-revenge.

The third film, our sources tell us, will focus on a serial killer that uses a crisis hotline to target rapists. One of the counselor’s has a dark past, which sends Detectives sniffing in her direction — but is she the killer they’re looking for?

The 2010 Steven R. Monroe-directed I Spit on Your Grave was a shockingly good remake of the 1978 classic. Monroe rushed out a sequel last year that was a huge disappointment. I think tonally, horror fans don’t want hardcore torture right now. They’d be smart to play the third film tongue-in-cheek, like Nurse.

[Tribeca '14 Review] ‘Summer of Blood’ Is One of the Best Horror Comedies in Years!

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 20:55

If Woody Allen made a vampire flick, it might resemble Summer of Blood. Writer-director-actor Onur Tukel’s horror-comedy is a fresh satire on the vampire mythos, one that uses absurd situations to explore very human fears like commitment and urban life. Without an ounce of the pretentiousness so often found in indie comedies, Tukel has crafted a sincerely hilarious film that’s not without its fair share of gore and sex. Mad, tantric vampire sex, that is. Pardon my hyperbole, but Summer of Blood is simply one of the best and most honest horror-comedies in years.

Self-centered Brooklynite Eric (Tukel) has a problem with commitment. When his girlfriend of three years proposes to him, he delivers a misguided dialogue about post-modern feminism, then awkwardly declines. The next day he’s trolling an internet dating service in his desperate longing to get laid. Eric even has the stones to take his dates to the very restaurant where his girlfriend popped the question – how’s that for class? When they’re turned off by his narcissism or his lack of prowess in the bedroom (or both), it’s on to the next chick.

That is until the night Eric is bitten by a vampire, transforming him into a blood-sucking creature of the night. Well, sorta. He’s still the same self-involved slob he always was, but now he gets to indulge his hedonism to a greater degree. Vampirism turns Eric into a tireless sex machine who can control minds and vaginas alike. The only thing still holding sway over him are his jealous feelings over his old flame’s new (better looking, more charming and successful) boyfriend.

Eric is a dick, but he’s a terribly relatable one as well. While nearly everything that comes out of his mouth is ridiculous, I couldn’t help but sympathize with many of his feelings. Throughout all of this, Onur Tukel flexes some finely-tuned wit and comedic timing. A few scenes, like when his landlord comes looking for rent, had me in tears. It’s a very natural and honest performance as well. Tukel really puts himself out there, presenting all of his paranoid fears about society, urban life, and relationships – relentlessly making fun of himself in the process. In between bouts of biting people’s throats off, of course.

The vampire elements of Summer of Blood are pretty simple and follow most of the traditional stuff like aversion to sunlight and having to feed to stay alive. Tukel puts his own unique spin on them, however, leading to a wholly refreshing take on the genre. Eric’s fear of commitment actually bleeds into his vampirism, which I found to be fucking brilliant. For instance, what happens if you bite your lover, transforming her into an immortal being? Hell, that means you’re stuck with that person for eternity? It’s a tough decision, especially for a goof like Eric.

The film may address some painfully real issues, but Summer of Blood never lets go of its comedic core. From beginning to end it’s an absolute blast that dishes out equal parts wit, vulgarity, and amazing one-liners. The horror-comedy is a tricky cross-genre to pull off, but I can honestly say that Summer of Blood just may be the best example since Tucker and Dale.

The film had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and here’s hoping it’s available to a wide audience sooner than later.

Hold Your Horses, ‘Contracted 2′ Still Incubating…

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 20:33

Just wanted to clarify something about the reported sequel to Contracted, entitled Contracted: Phase II. There’s a story being circulated today that is factually correct, but puts the cart a little bit before the horse.

While it’s true that an idea for the sequel is being considered, right now it’s a pitch that writer/director Eric England has turned into IFC and Boulderlight (producers of the original film). It’s true that the film is doing quite well and I’d be the first person in line to check out a sequel… but that might not be in the immediate future. It is a pitch that has been turned in. That’s it. There are a BILLION things that need to happen before things get moving.

Here’s England’s instagram photo of a potential title page. It was taken last month.

And the Director Of ‘Sinister 2′ Is…

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 19:52

Ciaran Foy, who did a fantastic job on the 2012 film Citadel, has been tapped to direct Sinister 2 for Blumhouse. While Scott Derrickson is (obviously) not directing this installment, he did pen the script with his co-writer on the first film, C. Robert Cargill.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, as per the usual. But I’m excited. Derrickson’s film had some of the best uses of imagery I’ve seen in modern horror, and Foy is no slouch behind the camera himself. All in all, not a bad week for good directors (a la David Bruckner and Friday The 13th) tackling anticipated sequels*.

*Yes, I know the upcoming F13 film is most likely not a sequel. Sue me.

A SINISTER welcome to Ciaran Foy director of #Sinister2! @scottderrickson & @Masswyrm wrote the follow up & we are so excited to get going!

‘Fingerbones’ Will Stick With You Long After You’ve Played It

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 19:26

I recently sat down with an extremely twisted indie horror game called Fingerbones. This isn’t the kind of game that wants to wow you with its visuals. Instead, it aims to disturb with its story, told through notes that are scattered about its environment. It’s one of the more unsettling games I’ve played in a while because it isn’t afraid to tackle a mature, even taboo subject — remember when Silent Hill was known for that?

It’s simple, but by stripping away the flair and fluff, this developer has managed to craft a game that I’m sure will stick with me for some time.

‘Aftermath’ Divides Our Attention With New Pics and a Poster

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 18:46

I’m gonna wait until I see Aftermath to really weigh in here, but I’m sort of tired of the whole “it’s the apocalypse so everyone is terrible to each other” subgenre. Xavier Gens’ The Divide squandered his considerable directorial talents on tepid squabbling, and “The Walking Dead” is inertia personified.

That being said, I’m holding out hope for Peter Engert’s film starring Edward Furlong, Monica Keena, Andre Royo and C.J. Thomason. There’s always a chance it could turn out worthwhile if they lighten the mood a bit.

When the devastating horror of a nuclear apocalypse becomes a reality, nine strangers find themselves holed up together in a farmhouse cellar. These would-be survivors are faced with dwindling supplies, radioactive air and the greatest threat of all – the hordes of zombie-like refugees who want in.

RLJ/Image Entertainment is to release later this year. Check out the new stills and poster below.

[TV] I’ve Seen the “Salem” Pilot Episode!

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 18:38

Did the witches of Salem cast a spell on me?

WGN America will debut their first scripted series, “Salem”, this coming Sunday, April 20th, at 10p/9c.

I was lucky enough to see the pilot presentation ahead of the premiere and wanted to share some brief thoughts before you guys head into a new series.

Tonally, I like what WGNA did here; “Salem” isn’t pandering to teens or playing it safe, they’re going all-in on being a softer version of an HBO series. I’d say the perfect comparison would be an FX series as “Salem” carries a similar tone in terms of blood, sex and violence as “American Horror Story.” I might even go as far as to say the sex is about as risqué as I’ve seen on the softer side of cable.

The settings and design were also strong, although it felt a bit constricted in terms of scope. I can only assume we’ll venture out of Salem in future episodes.

Something I’ve noticed here on Bloody is the obsession with “Bates Motel” mommy Vera Farmiga. I can assure those of you who fixated on Vera that you’ll be mesmerized by Janet Montgomery, the series lead. Much like Jessica Lange’s character in all of the “American Horror Story” seasons, it’s a bit unclear if Montgomery is good or bad; either way she carries a crazy strong presence that’s captivating.Another interesting note is that, between the gore and action, I could see shades of Sam Raimi.

But my biggest issue with the pilot is that the overall arc is extremely unclear (the witches are planning a civil war?), and I couldn’t really figure out what the characters’ goals were – why do they do what they do? It made me ask myself more than once, “Why am I watching this?” I want to know what we’re working towards.

Still, the first episode was “just okay,” which is my review for pretty much any series pilot. It’s way too small of a sample size to recommend, but it didn’t annoy me, so that’s something.

‘Alien: Isolation’ Trailer Embraces Its Lo-fi Sci-fi Roots

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 18:09

Developer Creative Assembly is going to great pains to ensure their upcoming survival horror game Alien: Isolation looks and sounds like the original Alien film. The attention to detail is ridiculous and readily apparent in every facet of the game, from the environments, which look like they were taken out of the film set, to the few precious tools you’ll find while desperately trying to survive aboard the Sevastopol.

Alien: Isolation made our list of 2014′s most exciting horror games for a reason.

Alien: Isolation arrives on October 7 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Dark Sky and SpectreVision Nab ‘LFO’

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 17:32

I haven’t seen LFO, but apparently it made enough of a splash at Fantastic Fest last year. MPI/Dark Sky and Elijah Wood’s SpectreVision have teamed up to get the Swedish sci-fi film to audiences. MPI will handle all U.S. distribution and international sales rights, which will be released under their Dark Sky banner. Meanwhile, SpectreVision has come onboard as a “presenter”, with Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller onboard as exec producers along with wood.

The film written and directed by Antonio Tublen is “a darkly satiric look at our modern obsession with technology and the toll it can take on human interaction. Robert Nord (Patrik Karlson, Wallander), a loner whose sole passion in life is the analog sound equipment in his basement, stumbles upon a frequency that allows him to hypnotize people. Testing it on his attractive new neighbor and her unassuming husband (Izabella Jo Tschig, Per Löfberg), he soon realizes the power he now wields. As Robert indulges in the increasingly twisted possibilities of having complete control over others, it quickly becomes clear that he is losing control of himself

5 Skull Review: “Curse” #4

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 16:21

Michael Moreci & Tim Daniel craft an ambitious conclusion for their story that mirrors it’s dark beginning. Their ultimate solution is seeded in a certain darkness that becomes warped with opportunistic idealism that plays with the expectations of the genre. Through a brilliant sleight of hand the real monster is revealed as “Curse” pulls off a masterful and beautiful conclusion.

 

WRITTEN BY: Michael Moreci & Tim Daniel

ART BY: Colin Lorimer & Riley Rossmo

PUBLISHER: BOOM! Studios

PRICE: $3.99

RELEASE: April 16, 2014

 

If I were being perfectly honest I’d have to admit that the idea of another werewolf story had me roll my eyes four months ago. I was sure there was nothing new to be said, and nothing about the beast that could surprise me. Michael Moreci & Tim Daniel have successfully tweaked mythology, defied convention, and humanized the beast. Proving that I couldn’t have been more wrong.

At it’s core “Curse” was never about the werewolf. It was about Laney and his blind pursuit to get what he wanted. What first seemed like desperation evolves into a cold and calculated solution to a no win scenario. I was genuinely surprised by his resolution. It was the perfect damnation for the character. Horror thrives in destruction, and over the past four issues we’ve seen Laney taken apart and put back together again. It’s devastating and near repugnant to watch, but you can’t look away. The actions Laney commits here were long part of his character arc, as soon as he realizes it himself you understand that this was the only way the series could have ended. You should have seen it coming; it was all there from the beginning.

Much like the fantastic and delicate balancing act the artists have pulled off. The interplay between cold human cruelty and the visceral beast behind the curse is mesmerizing. Colin Lorimer is able to frame a scene in such a way that removes all warmth and comfort from the people involved. He makes the chilling atmosphere pop, and does his best to make Laney a menace as he towers over his trophy. As the issue hits its climax the incredible and primal work of Riley Rossmo takes over. He cuts a hole through the page and makes for a pulse pounding battle that will leave you bewildered. It’s perfectly paced and leaves you breathless going into the conclusion. 

The final pages manage to dovetail all of the plotlines with relative ease. The whole story converges on a certain point, and ends in a youthful voice that seems both optimistic and threatening. It’s a bold choice that will resonate with readers for some time to come. It really struck me, and confirmed my worst fears.

“Curse” is truly something special. As a supernatural horror story that focuses on the evil of man, rather than the beast it stands alone. It cuts into the core of what it means to be human and defies convention and expectation on every level. It’s thrilling, horrific, and oddly appealing. The beautiful balance of dark humanity with the supernatural creates a unique and captivating story that comes to define the werewolf mythos in a new way. I couldn’t be happier with the conclusion but I’m truly saddened to see it go.

Review: “The White Suits” #3

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 16:12

From the titular splash page of this issue one thing should be clear “The White Suits” is Toby Cypress’ book. He creates a crazy and rollicking adventure that defies comparison. While Frank J Barbiere’s script is pulp fueled tribute to gang warfare. Together they pull out all the stops to craft one insane action packed issue that fulfills all of your wildest and most violent dreams.

 

WRITTEN BY: Frank J Barbiere

ART BY: Toby Cypress

PUBLISHER: Dark Horse Comics

PRICE: $3.99

RELEASE: April 16, 2014

This issue has everything. Seriously the insane action and warped plot that have come to define the series are now firing on all cylinders. The series narrative comes to define itself clearly and gives clarity for Prizrak. Anderson is made to be a rebellious agent who seemingly holds allegiance to no one and some of the antagonistic force is finally vanquished.

Toby Cypress makes the whole ordeal feel like an acid induced fever dream drug through a dimly lit club with only one red light. That’s a very specific type of weird. It works really well here because Barbiere’s script embraces bombastic characters with wild battle styles. Literally every fighting style is at play amongst the insanity of the issue, but it all feels at home thanks to Cypress’ playful style.

The whole battle at the center of the issue strives to top itself and does so with relative ease. The conflict feels chaotic and wild and there are times where you’ll be uncertain of everyone’s safety, but once the dust settles on the page, Cypress shows that he isn’t afraid to linger in the death. He makes it clear that wonderful displays of gore are part of his wheelhouse and the book is better for it.

At its core the motivations of all the characters are a little hollow yet. We’re still not entirely sure what happened to Prizrak and Anderson isn’t exactly too forthcoming with her own agenda. There are still some things yet to be revealed that will come to define each of these characters but for me my questions are beginning to outweigh my wow factor in the action. Luckily, it’s not by much and the book still proves entirely engaging.

It helps that everything is paced with a sense of urgency. Barbiere ensures to balance his script with exposition and bloodshed by bouncing between two time periods to tell the story. It helps keep a certain forward momentum and guarantees the book doesn’t waste a moment on the page.

“The White Suits” is gearing toward its conclusion and it’s a little melancholic. One the one side we’ll finally have all the pieces of the puzzle and perhaps find out just who these mysterious hitmen are. On the other all of this crazy, insane, fun action will have to stop and we’ll go back into the world without a monthly Toby Cypress book. Let’s just hope that the finale keeps up the insanity while bringing the answers.

There Be Water Monsters In These ‘The Evil Within’ Screens

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 15:19

Bethesda has tossed out a fresh batch of screenshots from Shinji Mikami’s upcoming survival horror game The Evil Within, and one of them shows off a creature that was teased in the latest trailer. I’m not sure what that freaky looking water monster is supposed to be, but its face-full of teeth makes it look like a thing of nightmares.

Here’s the new trailer, in case you missed it.

The Evil Within releases on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on August 26th.
