V/H/S: Viral is NOW on VOD platforms (with a limited theatrical run slated for November 21st), and Magnet has give our friends at Joblo/Arrowinthehead a new clip from the film, this time from Nacho Vigalondo’s insane demonic segment.
The new tape features segments directed by Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl, the incredible The ABCs of Death segment “D Is for Dogfight”), Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial), Gregg Bishop (The Other Side, Dance of the Dead), as well as Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution, Spring).
“A police chase after a deranged ice cream truck has captivated the attention of the greater Los Angeles area. Dozens of fame—obsessed teens flock to the streets with their video cameras and camera phones, hell—bent on capturing the next viral video. But there is something far more sinister occurring in the streets of L.A. than a simple police chase. A resounding effect is created onto all those obsessed with capturing salacious footage for no other purpose than to amuse or titillate. Soon the discovery becomes that they themselves are the stars of the next video, one where they face their own death.”
Patrick Lawrie, Emmy Argo, Heather Hayes, Jessica Luza, John Curran, Justin Welborn, Mary Ralston, Michael Aaron Milligan, Gustavo Salmerón, Marian Álvarez, Xavi Daura, Esteban Navarro, Nick Blanco, Chase Newton, Shane Bradey and Jayden Robison star.
Marcel Sarmiento, TJ Cimfel, Dave White, Gregg Bishop, Nacho Vigalondo, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead wrote the screenplays.
About a week ago I told you guys that The Strangers director Bryan Bertino’s Mockingbird was a must-see Halloween film. A lot of you guys didn’t like that, but I stand behind my love for (most) of the movie, which I consider to be frightening and suspenseful until the lackluster and trite finale. Still, it’s a great ride that I thought would be fun to watch on Halloween.
I got ahead of myself and some readers assumed I didn’t have any other suggestions. Well, I do, and I’m going to share them with you now. Thankfully, since Halloween 2014 lands on a Friday, it comes with two bonus days to fill with genre goodies.
First, per request of a few readers, I want to point you to Gerard Johnstone’s People Under the Stairs-esqe Housebound, a hilarious indie film we’ve been supporting since the beginning of time. Patrick Cooper called the film a comical and creepy house of horrors. In the New Zealand-based film, “Kylie Bucknell is forced to return to the house she grew up in when the court places her on home detention. Her punishment is made all the more unbearable by the fact she has to live there with her mother Miriam – a well-intentioned blabbermouth who’s convinced that the house is haunted. Kylie dismisses Miriam’s superstitions as nothing more than a distraction from a life occupied by boiled vegetables & small town gossip. However, when she too becomes privy to unsettling whispers & strange bumps in the night, she begins to wonder whether she’s inherited her overactive imagination, or if the house is in fact possessed by a hostile spirit who’s not particularly thrilled about her return.“
Much like Mockingbird, The Houses That October Built is a pretty great experimental horror film that falls apart in the final moments. Still, the unique nature of the way it was filmed – at real haunted mazes – makes this a must-see. Bobby Roe directs this new spin on found-footage that stars Brandy Schaefer, Zack Andrews, Mikey Roe and Jeff Larson.
Also available now is TWC-Dimension’s Horns, the adaptation of Joe Hill’s graphic novel that was directed by Alex Aja (High Tensions, Mirrors, Piranha 3D) and stars The Woman In Black‘s Daniel Radcliffe. It’s not a perfect movie – although Mike Pereira loved it – but it’s a really colorful adaptation that’s got some really cool stuff in it. “Blamed for the murder of his girlfriend and ostracized by everyone he knows, a small-town guy (Daniel Radcliffe) awakens one morning to find he’s grown a pair of horns. Armed with the supernatural powers they possess, he sets out to find the true killer.“
And how could I not use this opportunity fore a shameless plug? If (and only if) you like the first two V/H/S films, check out our V/H/S: Viral, featuring the works of Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl, the incredible The ABCs of Death segment D Is for Dogfight), Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial), Gregg Bishop (The Other Side, Dance of the Dead), as well as Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution, Spring). It’s also glossier as we took the franchise into the “real world”, so to speak, so those who hate the found-footage look may actually enjoy this one.
Let’s see, what else is out there, oh, yeah SAW. Yesterday marked the 10th anniversary of James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s indie classic that Lionsgate acquired and put into theaters everywhere, thus changing the course of horror last decade. While it is opening in theaters for a one-weekend engagement, it’s feature all over VOD platforms and should be revisited in celebration of the indie horror film. If anything, catch it before Lionsgate announces a remake…
I also really enjoyed the Town That Dreaded Sundown remake/sequel (here’s our review), which reminded me of the early Halloween films with a hint of David Fincher’s Zodiac. The pic takes place “65 years after a masked serial killer terrorized the small town of Texarkana, the so-called ‘moonlight murders’ begin again. Is it a copycat or something even more sinister? A lonely high school girl, with dark secrets of her own, may be the key to catching him.” Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is also getting behind the camera for “American Horror Story: Freak Show” episodes.
Another film that’s a mixed bag is Eduardo Sanchez’s Exists. I really enjoyed the film, but Rodriguez also helmed a V/H/S/2 segment, which sorts of voids out my opinion. The reviews seem to be mixed and our readers also seem to enjoy the film enough that I think it may be worth a Halloween weekend viewing. It’s a found-footage Bigfoot film in which “a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed” after an accident. It’s from the director of The Blair Witch Project, too.
An older film I really, really, really loved is Under the Skin, a super creepy alien horror pic that I’ve been raving about here on the site. Scarlett Johansson stars as an alien seductress who “combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair.” A quick note: From what I’m told, the book is way better.
And while there are tons of great genre films floating on VOD, there are a handful that you SHOULD AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
First and foremost is the terrible Stephen King adaptation (of which he wrote the screenplay) A Good Marriage, which Patrick Cooper called the worst Stephen King adaptation yet. Peter Askin directed the film, starring Joan Allen, Anthony LaPaglia, Kristen Connolly and Stephen Lang. “When her husband (LaPaglia) of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson (Allen) looks for batteries in the garage. Instead she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.“
And while we like Blumhouse’s Mockingbird and Town That Dreaded Sundown, you should definitely avoid Mercy, a try and bland haunter from Peter Cornwell, the director of the awful Haunting In Connecticut. In the other bad Stephen King adaptation, “Two mischievous young brothers accompany their single mother to take care of their grandma in her remote and lonely house. What begins as an innocent gesture, leads to the discovery of terrifying secrets about Gramma’s true nature.”
Easily the worst movie of the year, and a must avoid VOD rental is WER, an atrocious found-footage werewolf pic from the directors of The Devil Inside. Featuring the worst finale in recent memory, it tells the story of a defense attorney named Kate Moore (A.J. Cook) who has set out to clear the name of a suspect in a brutal murder case. The lead, Talan, is accused of murdering an American family. While Talan appears to be gentle on the surface, his attorney soon learns that Talan is actually a werewolf.
Two more weak films being pushed heavily on VOD platforms (don’t be fooled!) is both the comedy Life After Beth and the generic thriller Stonehearst Asylum. Patrick Cooper called the Abrey Plaza starrer Life After Beth a muddled zombedy. In regards to the Kate Beckinsale starrer Stonehearst Asylum, Patrick says it’s a so-so period thriller.
There’s literally hundreds of VOD titles released throughout the year, and while we focused on the new(er) stuff, we’d love to know what you guys would suggest to the rest of Bloody Disgusting. Tell everyone below, what should they rent and/or avoid this Halloween weekend?
Not content to let two of gaming’s oldest horror franchises fade away, Atari is bringing back both Alone in the Dark and Haunted House with “reimaginings” of each slated to arrive this fall.
Of the two, Haunted House: Cryptic Graves is the most mysterious. Until today, we hadn’t seen much of it, with the exception of a small bit of gameplay footage and some screenshots. Today, we’re getting more of each, and first up is the game’s official trailer.
You can pre-order Haunted House: Cryptic Graves for $16.99 (15% off) right now on Steam.

Tomorrow is Halloween and we’ve been featuring some amazing content to ensure that you have tons of ideas on what you can do for this special day! But if you haven’t gotten enough movie suggestions to know what to marathon this weekend, how about we turn to ambient trip-hop duo Arms & Sleepers to lend their thoughts!
Member Mirza Ramic states:
Lots of TV/movie memories from our childhood years in the 1980s and early 1990s expressed themselves musically on our new album ‘Swim Team’. The TV show ‘Miami Vice’ brought back a lot of feelings (watching Crockett and Tubbs in action in my father’s arms will always be a special moment in my life), as did Jean-Claude Van Damme’s double role in ‘Double Impact’ (so much so that I watched the film ceremonially while on tour in Hong Kong – which is where the movie takes place – a couple of years back). But as true movie enthusiasts, there are plenty of horror films from this time period that hold a special place in our hearts as well. Here are five of them, in no particular order.
Check out their Top 5 horror films and then make sure to order Swim Team via the band’s Bandcamp.
Just in time for Halloween, artist Bennett Slater has given us a glimpse of his newest piece, and it’s fucking chilling. He created the piece for a Halloween-themed show at Auguste Clown Gallery in Australia opening Halloween night. His style is uncompromising and depicts the terror that I believe is captured by the weird old oil painting portraits of old. This is seriously chilling stuff.
Here’s Bennett’s inspiration in his own words:
For this piece, I delved into Dante’s “Inferno”, from the 14th Century poem “Divine Comedy”. Centered around a man traversing the 9 circles of Hell, there’s one section that always stuck with me, which features a corrupted man (Ugolino) forced to eat his own sons. I combined Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux’s 19th century sculpture “Ugolino and His Sons” with a contemporary costume depiction of satan. It’s interesting- the difference a century makes. The excerpt from “Inferno” which I based the piece reads:
Editorial By: Giaco Furino
So it’s Halloween and you’re in a relationship? Cool! Chances are either you or your significant other (or the both of you) have thought about a couples costume for Halloween. We understand the temptation is strong, but don’t just go as Peanut Butter and Jelly, don’t don mustaches and dress as Mario and Luigi. You’re a reader of this site! You can do better… and by better, of course, we mean creepier! Here are six great ideas to scare in tandem.
Bonnie and Clyde (Deceased)
We’ll start you off with a classic Halloween costume. Bonnie and Clyde, the infamous robbers and leaders of a small gang during the great depression, are perfect candidates for a couples costume. Dress up in Great Depression-era garb, tote around a fake gun, and feel like a badass. But we can do better than that. Remember the final scene from the 1967 movie, where Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are riddled with bullets? That’s the costume we’re going for!
What You’ll Need: For the person playing Bonnie, you’ll need an era-appropriate dress and an awesome tommy gun. For the person playing Clyde, you’ll need a handsome suit, a nice hat, and a devilish grin. Both costumers, of course, will need a pair of scissors. Don’t rush this costume; in real life Bonnie and Clyde were reportedly shot fifty times… you’ll have to cut all those bullet holes!
Rosemary and Her Baby
When Rosemary’s Baby hit theaters in 1968 it captivated audiences and critics, and even managed to freak out the church and expectant mothers! Mia Farrow delivered a performance so realistic that some claimed it was too true to life. So now it’s up to you and yours to create a truly terrifying couples costume around this flick. Everyone likes to dress up as a baby for Halloween (well, maybe not everyone), if you’re gonna do it you might as well dress up as the spawn of Satan.
What You’ll Need: For the person playing Rosemary, you’ll need that adorable pixie haircut, a big kitchen knife, and a blue sleeping gown. For the person playing Baby, you’ll need… well… we only really see it’s demonic eyes. So go crazy! Just make sure you nail the eyes.
Frankenstein’s Monster and His Companion
So you want to go as “Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein”? Well stop right there! Let’s get literary here. Let’s work from the source, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. You’ll be going as Frankenstein’s Monster, and you’ll be going as the Monster’s Companion. And don’t go reaching for that green makeup, either, you’re both made of corpses, and you’ll both be fleshy and rotten and disgusting, just like in the book. In fact, in the novella Dr. Frankenstein can’t even pull the trigger and bring the Companion to life, he’s too worried it’ll turn out just as monstrous as the Monster.
What You’ll Need: You’ll both need to dress in shabby clothing. Better stock up on liquid latex, too, if you really want to get that “just a mound of rotten flesh” look. Remember, keeping these costumes literary is the key to staying creepy and standing out against the flat-topped Frankenstein masses.
Oedipus and Jocasta
Want to really freak out your friends? Dress up as Oedipus and Jocasta from Greek Mythology. Do you remember the classic tale? Here’s a 10th grade English class primer: Oedipus’ father knew his son would one day kill him, so he left the infant out in the wilds. Baby Oedipus was saved and given to the childless king. He later ends up unwittingly killing his father and marrying Jocasta… his mother. And when the couple finally finds out that he’s killed his dad and been chilling with his mom for years she hangs herself and he gouges out his own eyes. Perfect for a couple costume!
What You’ll Need: For the person playing Oedipus, you’ll need greek robes and LOTS of blood around your eyes. For the person playing Jocasta, you’ll need greek robes and a rope. It’s like a toga party… but, you know, terrible and creepy.
King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn
If you’ve got a fancy dress and a King’s costume laying around (and who doesn’t!?) don’t just go as a tired old King and Queen. Go as King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn! Their sordid love, marriage, and eventual split make the juiciest soap opera seem dull. Unable to bear the nearly-mad King Henry a son, Anne Boleyn was charged with adultery and conspiracy and sentenced to death. Even after a thoughtful testimony she was walked into the public square and given a swift beheading. So why be a plain King and Queen when you can be a blood splattered maniac King and his beheaded bride!
What You’ll Need: For the person playing Henry, you’ll need a big beard, a big belly, and the blood of your many dead wives on your hands. For the person playing Anne, give yourself as nasty a neck wound as you can muster! And make sure you’re both pasty! Royalty is always pasty!
Chupacabra and Goat
The Chupacabra, the legendary creature that’s known to suck the blood out of farm animals, was first sighted in Puerto Rico in 1995. The creature, according to witnesses, kills livestock like sheep, cows, and goats, and sucks all their blood from them, leaving them bone-dry. The creature’s name literally translates to “goat sucker” so… Chupacabra and Goat! It’s a match made in heaven and a perfect couple costume.
What You’ll Need: Aside from buckets of blood? For the person playing the Chupacabra, make sure you’ve got nasty fangs, big claws, and a penchant for blood. For the person playing the goat, make sure you’ve mastered the “oh no I’m being drained of all my blood” look.
Atari has released a fresh handful of screenshots from their Alone in the Dark reboot, and it’s looking good. Too bad Alone in the Dark: Illumination isn’t going to release in time for Halloween, because it’d be perfect for this very spooky time of the year. The game takes a few pages from Left 4 Dead, as four survivors must survive in a world overrun by monsters and a mysterious, omnipresent darkness.
It looks like Left 4 Dead meets Alan Wake, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.
You can pre-order Alone in the Dark: Illumination for $26.99 (10% off) right now on Steam.
The upcoming indie horror game Grave, which I’ve played a few times now on our YouTube channel — you can find my playthrough of its latest demo below — has been confirmed for PlayStation 4, developer Broken Window Studios announced earlier this week. Its Kickstarter campaign didn’t quite reach the stretch goal that would’ve unlocked PS4 support, but that doesn’t seem to matter.
Good thing too, because everyone deserves to experience this thoroughly freaky game.
Grave hits PC, PS4 and Xbox One early next year.
Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert will re-team with Evil Dead collaborators Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues on the thriller A Man in the Dark, reports Variety.
“The story centers on a trio of teens who get away with perfectly planned home robberies and have targeted a reclusive blind man with millions of dollars in hiding. But as soon as they break into his home, the tables are turned and they find themselves fighting for survival against a psychopath.“
Alvarez directed and co-wrote the screenplay with Sayagues on last year’s “Evil Dead,” the fourth title in the Evil Dead franchise and the first not directed by Raimi. That film grossed nearly $100 million in worldwide box office. It’s unfortunate because it sounds like we won’t be seeing an Evil Dead sequel anytime soon…
Alvarez is set to direct A Man in the Dark and Raimi and Tapert will produce for Ghost House. J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake will exec produce. Erin Westerman will oversee the project.
When The Evil Within made its surprise debut last April, one of the first creatures we were introduced to was Laura. She was the most horrific thing about that initial teaser trailer, and now that the game is out and many of us have had the opportunity to play it, she’s arguably one of the creepiest things about the game itself.
In Bethesda’s The Creatures Within video series, Mikami and friends are taking a look at the standout monsters from The Evil Within. In the latest video, they take a look at Laura.
The Evil Within is available now on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with Chicago grindcore band Sick/Tired to bring you the exclusive album stream of their upcoming album Dissolution, which comes out tomorrow via A389 Records. The album follows the band’s 2013 release King Of Dirt and the title track features Japanese noise musician Merzbow.
The band’s music has been described as, “…a maelstrom of whirling slivers intent on rending your flesh, a vortex of unremitting insanity…“.
Bassist Kirk Syrek describes the album:
This record is a bit different for us as where the last one, “King of Dirt”, was really dark, lo-fi, and gritty, on “Dissolution” we added a lot more hooks and memorable riffs, as well as some longer tracks, instead of an all out blast assault. It is still very dark sounding, but it is much more atmospheric in a way. The noise tracks from Merzbow and Marhaug definitely add to the feeling of despair. The entire record is basically about the death of our vocalist’s Grandfather so it is very personal…
Universal Pictures will be celebrating Christmas with their evil Santa Claus movie, Krampus, by releasing the Legendary Pictures’ anthology on Friday, December 4, 2015.
This moves it off of the crowded Wednesday, November 25, 2015 date that has set it up for a long Thanksgiving weekend.
The film, a twisted horror comedy set around the Christmas holiday, is to be directed by Trick ‘r Treat‘s Michael Dougherty.
It’s based on an ancient legend about a pagan demon who punishes the wicked.
Meet the Bennett sisters – Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) – in Sony Screen Gems’ Pride and Prejudice and Zombies!
The film also stars Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey,
“This mash-up that begins with the tangled relationship between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England, and is complicated by a full on outbreak of zombies.“
In this exclusive clip from Jessabelle, Lionsgate’s new haunter from Saw VI director Kevin Greutert, Ms. Davis tells Jessabelle she’s going to get what’s coming to her.
In the film that opens in theaters and on various VOD platforms November 7, “Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident, Jessabelle (Sarah Snook) comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return — and has no intention of letting her escape.”
Sarah Snook, Mark Webber, Joelle Carter, Ana De La Reguera and Amber Stevens star.
Deadline reports that Epic Pictures – who is selling the V/H/S films internationally – is behind a new anthology, Tales of Halloween, which will collect ten segments from eleven directors into one interconnected series of stories, all set in a sleepy American suburb terrorized by ghouls, aliens, and killers one Halloween night.
The pic is assembling with the likes of Neil Marshall (The Descent) and Darren Bousman (Repo!, 11-11-11, Saw II, III and IV) behind the camera.
Tapped to helm shorts alongside Marshall and Bousman are Joe Begos (Almost Human), Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate), Adam Gierasch (Night of the Demons), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy) and John Skipp (Stay at Home Dad), Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider!), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), Ryan Schifrin (Abominable), and Paul Solet (Grace).
Carolyn conceived of the project and will produce with Mendez and Epic’s Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson.
Ford wants you to see how cool and hip they are, so they convinced passengers to get an innocent car wash-and had some of the undead meet the unsuspecting drivers.
I love the idea of turning a car-wash into a haunted house, and would easily pay to drive my own car (definitely not a Ford) through one.
Watch as these alleged unsuspecting drivers (there’s no way these people were allowed to enter this without signing some sort of waiver) are terrorized in the pitch black wash.
A lot of you guys are Kane Hodder super fans, and consider him to be the best Jason Voorhees of all time. While he hasn’t donned the makeup in nearly 15 years, with his last appearance being in the 2001 Jason X, it doesn’t mean he can’t rock the mask one last time.
Hodder fans pay attention, cause this is almost as big as when Robert Englund rocked the Freddy Krueger makeup one final time. Hodder will be appearing with FX artist and director John Carl Buechler at Chicago’s upcoming Mad Mobster True Crime & Horror Expo next February. There, Hodder will take photos with fans in his famous Jason Voorhees makeup.
The catch? It’s super expensive, there’s no mention of this being the final time Hodder will do this (I’m expecting him to milk this for all it’s worth), and there’s no charity mentioned. The fact that Englund already did this, as did the cast of Child’s Play, sort of takes the wind out of the sails. Still, this is a pretty awesome opportunity for hardcore Jason and Hodder fans.
February Friday the 13th, 2015, Kane Hodder will be donning the full makeup and costume designed by director and original FX designer John Carl Buechler. Fans will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a photo with one of the biggest horror icons of all time. The photo will be included in the “Friday the 13th with Kane Hodder and John C. Buechler” package on sale this Friday (Halloween), it will be $199. It will include one autograph from Kane and John, an in-makeup photo op with a green screen background (for up to 2 adults) and reserved seating at the Q&A. It does not include admission to the convention which is required (single day Friday is $25, weekend is $50). Tickets for Friday with Kane & John will be extremely limited, there will be a few available at the show for walk-up fans, but if you absolutely do not want to risk missing it, we strongly recommend pre-purchasing it ASAP.
The Dyatlov Pass incident is something we’ve talked about here before. In 1959, at the base of Siberia’s “Death Mountain” a group of nine students lost their lives under mysterious — and unnerving — circumstances. It’s creepy enough to offer an intriguing premise for a horror game, and that’s exactly what the folks behind Kholat are doing.
After a lot of teasing, they’re finally showing off gameplay footage, starting with this eerie new trailer. It’s not much, but it does give us our first glimpse at the horrors waiting for us when this game hits PC early next year.
Mixing in with our bag of Halloween Treats is a daily goodie set to release each day leading up until Halloween.
“Fun Size Horror” is a horror film collective that has come together to create 31 films to celebrate Halloween!
We continue this morning with Glen Murakami’s “Let Me Go.” In it, a man, alone in a theatre, is haunted by his lost love.
Glen Murakami began his animation career working at Warner Bros Animation on “Batman: The Animated Series”, “Superman: The Animated Series”, “The New Batman/Superman Adventures”, “Batman Beyond”, “Justice League”, and “The Batman” winning Emmy Awards for “Batman Beyond” and “The Batman” and Annie Awards for “The New Batman/Superman Adventures” and “Batman Beyond”.
Murakami then went on to produce “Teen Titans” for Warner Bros Animation, then produced “Ben 10: Alien Force” and “Ben 10: Ultimate Alien” for Cartoon Network. In addition, he’s also won an Eisner Award for his work in comic books. Most recently, Murakami produced “Beware the Batman” for Warner Bros Animation
