[TV] Scenes From "Salem": Who Torments Mercy Lewis?!

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 16:06

Mercy Lewis is being tormented by people in masks. But before she can reveal their identity she’s whisked away into the dark…

The mystery will be revealed when “Salem” premieres Sunday April 20 at 10/9c on WGN America.

On an expansive set reflecting volatile 17th century Massachusetts, “Salem” explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them.

“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery (“Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”) as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress – and Alden’s onetime love interest; Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”) as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden; Seth Gabel (“Fringe”) as local aristocrat Cotton Mather who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; Xander Berkeley (“Nikita,” “The Mentalist”) as chief politician Magistrate Hale; Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”) as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; and Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis.

In “Salem,” witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.

[Tribeca '14] Blood-Sucking Chupacabra Gets 'Indigenous' (Trailer)

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 15:39

There’s a whole lotta creature in this festival trailer for Alastair Orr’s Indigenous, an indie film about a blood-sucking Chupacabra!

Screening at the Tribeca Film Festival, the footage looks similar to say Neil Marshall’s The Descent, only in the middle of a jungle. It looks pretty cool, no?

A group of five American friends on the cusp of adulthood travel to Panama to relax and reconnect. They befriend a local woman in their hotel bar—and despite some ominous whispers—she goes against the specific instructions of her brother and brings the Americans on a day trip into the pristine falls at the nearby jungle. What begins as an innocent outing to a picturesque waterfall quickly turns terrifying after she suddenly goes missing. As night closes in, the friends realize too late the truth behind the rumors—the legendary, blood-sucking Chupacabra is now stalking them.

The 13th edition of the Festival will take place from April 16th to April 27th in New York City.

Avatar Release New Track "Bloody Angel"

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 12:30

Swedish cabaret metal band (that’s how I think of them and I’m sticking to it) Avatar have released “Bloody Angel”, the second single from their upcoming album Hail The Apocalypse (out 5/13 via eOne Music).

Vocalist Johannes Eckerström explains the song: “Bloody Angel is about shame and guilt. You look around and watch all the suffering and while searching for someone or something to blame, you end up in front of the mirror. Everything you touch, you break. Everyone you try to save you hurt and push further away. It is a sad reality of being alive, the fact that the closer you get, the more pain you risk inflicting. You try to stay in the light, spread your wings and aim for the sun. But your eyes and hands are covered in blood and you hit the ground, dragging everything that matters with you. The riff is pretty cool too.

Head below to check out the track and make sure to pre-order Hail The Apocalypse here.

'All Cheerleaders Die' Stills Deliver On Sex and Violence! (Exclusive)

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 12:17

A movie I think quite a lot of you are going to love is All Cheerleaders Die, which was co-directed by both May‘s Lucky McKee and The Lost‘s Chris Sivertson.

While many horror films boast their “sexy” cast, All Cheerleaders Die definitely nails it (as you can clearly see above) with the casting of Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee and Brooke Butler. The pic, based on McKee and Sivertson’s short film of the same name, sort of mixes The Craft with films like May and Lost. There’s plenty of gore, as well as crazy hot girls in their underwear in this revenge story.

RLJ/Image Entertainment is set to release All Cheerleaders Die on all VOD platforms May 8 with a limited theatrical run set for June 13. I’m dying for it to get released because I think it’s right up our alley…

In the pic, “Teenage outsider Maddy is keeping some dark secrets and holding a serious grudge against the captain of the Blackfoot High football team. When Maddy joins the school’s elite and powerful cheerleading squad, she convinces her new friends to help inflict her revenge. After a late-night party goes awry, their plans take an unexpected turn for the worst and all of the girls die. A sinister, supernatural power intervenes and the girls mysteriously appear at school the next day with a killer new look… and some unusual new appetites.”

GO SEE 'ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE' THIS WEEKEND

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 12:16

I’m only going to say this once, treat yourself this weekend and go indulge on Jim Jarmusch’s hipster horror Only Lovers Left Alive, starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska.

As I stated before, don’t expect a blood bath; what you’ll see is more of a moody vampire film that some people joke should be the last vampire movie ever made. They’re right. I think Only Lovers Left Alive brings it all around and it’s all been done to death. It’s time for a breather.

I’m a massive fan of the film, but it may not be for everyone. In fact, Ryan Daley liked, but didn’t love it. Evan Dickson was more on my side of the fence. Check out the following clip to get a taste (pun intended) of the film’s mood.

What’s it about? “Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

Even in a desolate desert you need to watch where you drive…

In an insanely spoiler heavy exclusive, we have a must-see featurette that takes you behind the scenes of Image Entertainment’s highly anticipated slasher, Wolf Creek 2, arriving on VOD platforms April 17, with a theatrical run set for May 16.

As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic white knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one else has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man.

Does Johnny Depp Star In Kevin Smith's 'Tusk'?! No...

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 09:52

Update: My source responded with an emphatic “I wish,” putting this rumor to rest. Bummer, it took me forever to write this piece…

The Internet investigates, and possibly uncovers quite a doozy.

Fan-site Johnny Depp Zone put on their detective cap and may have stumbled on clues that reveal a part in Kevin Smith’s forthcoming Tusk.

Back in December, Smith announced that Tusk – a modern-day monster movie that follows a journalist named Wallace (Justin Long) who finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Michael Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses – wouldn’t be finished in time for the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. He cited that he still had “two more shooting days here in Los Angeles to wrap the flick with our fifth Beatle – the performer playing the role of investigator Guy Lapointe.” A casting that he called the highlight of his career.

Back to the Depp Zone, who compiled the following clues:

-Johnny Depp’s makeup artist, Joel Harlow, has listed Tusk on his resume, which has since been removed.

-VideoETA added this long-shot of a connection: “There is a personal relationship between Depp and Smith that dates back to when their daughters went to school together and they co-hosted poetry events for charity. The age is right and Johnny Depp has the range to pull off just about any sort of character.

-There was gap in January when Depp completely shooting Mortdecai.

-Amber Heard – Depp’s alleged fiance – is in three movies produced by Demarest Films, Tusk‘s production company.

-Lastly, and probably where this all stemmed from, Long did an interview with Long Island Newsday where he stated: “Yeah, the one where a man turns into a war horse. It’s called “Tusk.” Johnny Depp is in that one. I’m working on something coming up later.

We personally sent out a few e-mails this a.m. in hopes of getting confirmation. Watch this spot as new breaks.

In case you didn’t know: Depp is the greatest actor of our time. His range is uncanny.

White Moth Black Butterfly Release Video For "Rising Sun"

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 09:15

UK experimental group White Moth Black Butterfly has premiered a video for their new single “Rising Sun” over at Prog, which you can also watch below. Fronted by Daniel Tompkins (ex-TesseracT), it’s a unique, rather beautiful song. The mixture of Daniel’s vocals, who often aims for higher ranges, and co-vocalist Jordan Bethany, whose breathy vocals almost float throughout, create a wonderful dynamic.

GWAR Posts Video Statement On The Loss Of Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus)

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 08:30

The surviving members of GWAR and Slave Pit Inc. have come together to create a video statement regarding the recent passing of frontman David Murray Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus). The members talk about how the outreach from the fans has been nothing short of incredible for them and that Dave would want things to keep going, including the 5th annual GWAR-B-Q, where a public memorial service will be held. The group also did not lose their humor, as evidenced by the last several seconds of the video.

The video was also used to announced the creation of The Dave Brockie Foundation. The exact description reads, “The Dave Brockie Foundation is a charity fund with the mission of promoting the advancement of music, images, letters and performances in the arts. It will endeavor to encourage promising talents, as well as preserving the legacy of Dave’s body of works. It intends to be a support system to those who have dedicated their lives in pursuit of creativity. The Dave Brockie Foundation will be a resource for artists in the fields of music, film, literature and all visual arts who cannot find funding through mainstream channels. The DBF will also strive to catalog and preserve Dave’s vast collection of original images, recordings and written words, and make them available for the world to appreciate. The foundation’s first goal is to finance the creation of a memorial monument in Richmond, Virginia to provide the world with a place to pay respects to the memory of a very cherished man.

Donations can be made here. The video can be seen below.

'The Last Of Us Remastered' Trailer Reminds Us How Many Critics Enjoyed The Game

Thu, 04/10/2014 - 22:56

The newly confirmed The Last of Us Remastered got a trailer today. It serves as more of an ad for the base game, rather than this new “enhanced” version, but I’m not sure you can say much more about one of the previous generation’s most high profile and critically lauded titles.

As for what this version offers, Naughty Dog has said they’re reworking the character models, lighting and textures. This version will also run in full 1080p and bring with it the Left Behind expansion, as well as both of the Territories map packs.

Unless you’d like a reminder of how many critics enjoyed The Last of Us (spoiler: it’s basically all of them), I suggest skipping to around 0:50 to briefly see the game in action.

The Last of Us Remastered arrives this Summer on PS4.

Feel free to send Adam an email or follow him on Twitter:
