Preview Kyle Newmaster's 'Something Wicked' Soundtrack (Exclusive)

Fri, 03/28/2014 - 09:00

Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with Lakeshore Records to bring you an exclusive first listen to Kyle Newmaster‘s score for Something Wicked, Brittany Murphy’s final movie. The 11:30 minute video below features 30-seconds from each track on the upcoming album, which can be pre-ordered via iTunes.

Newmaster states, “I also had a blast scoring the tense more traditional horror moments in the film. I really enjoy writing tense, dark, orchestral music and combining it with other sounds and elements. For these scenes I did quite a bit of recording with live orchestral musicians in which we recorded a variety of textural and aleatoric sounds.

The hauntingly seductive thriller about obsession and young love gone wrong stars Shantel VanSanten (Gang Related, One Tree Hill, Final Destination), John Robinson (upcoming Peter Bogdanovich movie, “Big Sur, Lords of Dogtown), Julian Morris (Once Upon a Time, Pretty Little Liars, Valkyrie), James Patrick Stuart (Supernatural, Hot in Cleveland) and Brittany Murphy (8 Mile, Uptown Girls, Clueless).

Head to the film’s official website to see dates, locations, and showtimes for the limited release.

Newcastle added, “One example of a cue that I really enjoyed writing in this style is ‘Serious Breakdown’. It’s a cue that starts very haunting and tense and then builds up to a moment where the audience might sense something terrible is going to happen, but it makes a very quick transition from horror to sadness as an element about one of the characters is revealed. I really enjoy scoring scenes that require that kind of musical complexity and depth.

'BioShock Infinite: Burial At Sea' Episode 2 Review: A Song Bird's Swan Song

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 22:35

Written by Jason Nawara, @JasonNawara

The end of Irrational is upon us. The studio behind the BioShock series has been substantially down-sized by headmaster Ken Levine. With Burial at Sea episode two — the third and final piece of Bioshock: Infinite DLC — serving as a brilliant swan song for a studio that has given us countless memories.

Reviews are always subjective as all hell, and this one will obviously be no different. I’ll try my best to keep this review as spoiler-free as possible, while at the same time addressing the ambiguous plot of Infinite and how the expansion’s first episode got us to this point in.

You know how some people love Donnie Darko and others absolutely hate it? Those are the kind of emotions Burial at Sea Episode 2 will evoke. That’s the best way I can put it without giving you spoilers, sorry. Just be prepared for the fact that the worlds you know will be turned upside down and the jangling loose ends of Bioshock: Infinite will fall and fill in the plot holes that bothered so many (especially me). In Burial at Sea, you step into the shoes of Elizabeth moments after the events in episode one.

What follows is 4-6 hours of pure bliss. In a change of pace in the gameplay for the Bioshock series, and particularly Infinite, stealth is now a focus. Elizabeth is far more fragile than Booker in a fight, so the “run in guns blazing” approach no longer works.

Instead, she must use her wits and and tactics to survive. Sneak past splicers, knock them out or use your cross bow if you don’t want to get into an all-out gunfight. It’s all very Thief-y, and it works extraordinarily well. Carpet muffles your footsteps, broken glass, of which there is a lot, creates quite the racket when ran upon. Take it slow, play smart, and you’ll be lead on a fantastic tale that actually gives us some brilliant lore for us diehards to devour along with the pure fan service that was the first episode.

This was played on a fairly high-end PC, with most settings on very high to ultra, so with that in mind — the game looked stunning. The unreal engine has never looked so clean and so detailed. The shadows created by the neon lights in the sunken utopia of Rapture look gorgeous reflecting on the water puddled on the floor. Every room you enter in this expansion is created with great care. This is quality DLC.

Sometimes you question what you’re paying for, but the sheer attention to detail justifies its expense. It sounded superlative as well. While I balked at the initial $15 price per episode of Burial at Sea, the amount of effort put into this release on every level is blatant. The voice acting is phenomenal, with Troy Baker and Courtnee Draper putting on the most impressive voice acting performances since Mass Effect. By the end of the episode, you’ll be on the edge of your seat, completely lost in the final loop we’ll ever see from the mind of Ken Levine.

My one issue with this DLC is that one – we know the Bioshock universes are ad infinitum, so what we are seeing here is nothing more than one thread out of many. Is the Rapture we see in Burial at Sea the same one we explored in the original Bioshock? Probably not. The most important question is: does it matter? This is not a macguffin and while some may claim deus ex machina, I have to disagree.

The ending of Burial at Sea will be debated for years. It’s our asking of Ken Levine, “Would you kindly wrap this up, give us a kiss on the cheek, a pat on the butt, then smash us over the head with a sledgehammer, please? Ken Levine, you are my favorite man-crush since David Lynch.

The revelation provides to us new eyes with which to look upon the Bioshock series. If this is the end, or middle, beginning, it doesn’t matter. There will always be a lighthouse, a man and a city. Take comfort in that.

Everything is changed now, and the only thing you’ll want to do after Episode 2 concludes is start up the whole series again (minus Bioshock 2). That’s all you could ever ask out of a piece of DLC, or a piece of art – it’s so good it makes you appreciate the whole of the catalogue that much more.

The Final Word: I like this episode more than the first, and even more than Bioshock: Infinite. It’s some of the best DLC I’ve ever played and cements the Bioshock series as a high watermark in videogame history. So many games are superfluous sequels made quick and dirty (BioShock 2), but the canon releases in this series are something to behold. A man in nearly-complete control of his vision in a market that rarely allows any kind of freedom. Bravo, Irrational Games. You went out on top.

Johnny Depp's 'Transcendence' A Tech-Zombie Thriller?

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 22:22

The term “zombie” can mean quite a few things, but ultimately it doesn’t always have to apply to horror.

Our friends at Badass Digest caught some footage of Warner Bros.’ Transcendence at the ongoing CinemaCon today, where they learned that it’s basically a techno-zombie thriller. What does that mean exactly? Well, Johnny Depp plays a reincarnated man who goes on a power trip building an army of resurrected individuals. While they aren’t rotting, they are “zombies”.

After being shot, Depp’s character has his brainwaves uploaded into the supercomputer. “Soon after waking up in his new computer body, Depp starts demanding access to more power and more information,” says the site who also adds that we’ll “see him operating on – and reviving – a dead man. But more than reviving him, the dead man is amplified, and a voice over tells us Depp is building an army. An army of zombies? That’s certainly how it seemed…”

While this does sound intriguing, I guess we’ll have to wait until April 17 to get the answer.

Royal Blood Announces A Few US Dates

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 17:00

UK duo Royal Blood, which is made up of 23 year-old vocalist/bassist Mike Kerr and 25 year-old drummer Ben Thatcher, will be playing a few dates in the US this May and will the be returning in August to perform at Lollapalooza. The band is touring to support their EP Out Of The Black and they are hard at work on their debut full length, which will be released later this year.

I only just heard of these guys and I’m really into their sound. Keeping it to just bass and drums but using a full on in-your-face rock attitude, they have me hooked. Check out their music video for “Out Of The Black” below.

Tour dates:
5/12 – Glasslands – Brooklyn, NY
5/13 – Mercury Lounge – New York, NY
5/15 – The Roxy – Los Angeles, CA
8/2 – Lollapalooza – Chicago, IL

EA Kicks Off Their New "On The House" Program With Free 'Dead Space'

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 16:51

EA has launched a brand new program on their Origin service they’re calling “On the House”, and much like its name implies, it’s all about free games. The first freebie they’re offering is none other than the horror classic Dead Space. You can grab it now, at a decent 100% off its normal $19.99 asking price.

If you’re interested, I suggest you act fast. EA has said these offers won’t last, and they’ll appear and disappear, much like a Necromorph using the USG Ishimura’s ventilation system to sneak up behind Isaac Clarke, without notice.

[Exclusive Interview] Talking 'Phantasm: Ravager' With Creator Don Coscarelli! How Did They Keep It A Secret And When Will It Be Released?!

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 16:00

This morning Phantasm creator Don Coscarelli unveiled the trailer for Phantasm: Ravager, which had already been shot in total secrecy. It will be the fifth and final entry in Coscarelli’s classic horror Phantasm series.

The film, “features Reggie Bannister (a veteran of all five films) in his decades long pursuit of the malevolent Tall Man, and it finally forces him to confront the mysteries at the heart of the ‘Phantasm] saga. The entire original cast is back including Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kat Lester and Angus Scrimm, along with some great new characters.

I spoke with Coscarelli (via email) about this last entry in the franchise and new director David Hartman (“Transformers Prime, Roughnecks: Starship Troopers). We also discussed the challenges of keeping the whole thing secret, whether or not this directly follows Phantasm IV: Oblivion and if we can expect Bubba Nosferatu in our future.

Check it out below!!

Congrats on the new film! How the hell were you able to keep it a secret? “Thank you! We decided early on that since fans seemed so keen for another Phantasm movie that we would try to surprise them with ‘Ravager’. It took a couple years to pull together all the elements necessary, but we figured that fans had been so patient since ‘Phantasm: Oblivion’ was released that they would want us to get this one right. It gave me great joy to return to something I have such passion about. And yes, filming is finally complete.

Does it pick up where Phantasm: Oblivion left off? “Ah, you’re on to my style there. I’d prefer not to give too much away, but as a writer I am certainly a creature of habit.

What was it like, emotionally, revisiting this territory? “For me it was very emotionally satisfying to co-write the screenplay with Dave and then watch him breathe life into it. These are characters that the fans and I share a lot of history with. I know it might sound weird but after so many years, I have become a Phantasm fan myself. And watching Reggie, Mike and the Tall Man play out their arcs to the end was wonderful for me to watch, and I trust it will be the same experience for the fans.

When will the film be released? “It has more visual effects than any film I’ve been involved with to date, including ‘John Dies at the End’. In addition to being a terrific director, David Hartman is also a great visual effects artist, so he is hard at work right now, and will be for quite some time. I guess the short answer is “as soon as possible,” but that could be some time.

Any update on Bubba Nosferatu or any other new stuff you might have percolating? “I’ve got a bunch of projects in various states of development. Nothing to report right now on the sequel ‘Bubba Nosferatu’, other than a couple months back I had an excellent dinner with both Bruce Campbell and Paul Giamatti. I can swear to you, they would make an awesome on screen team! Elvis is eternal, and his manager Col Tom Parker probably is too, so, with luck, the Gods of Graceland will help us find a path to get that movie to the silver screen.

It Looks Like Predator Is Coming To 'Call Of Duty: Ghosts'

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 15:56

If you’ve been neglecting your copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Infinity Ward has just teased a pretty solid reason to return to it. First, they gave us Michael Myers and now, they’ve teased the arrival of everyone’s favorite gadget-loving alien in the game’s upcoming Devastation DLC. The tease comes from a video posted on the official Call of Duty Instagram along with (half of) a quote that should be familiar to fans of the movie: “If it bleeds…”

Devastation launches on April 3rd, just a few months before Predator’s 27th anniversary (June 12). Video after the jump.

Report: 'The Last Of Us' Coming To PS4, Bundled With 'Left Behind' Expansion

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 15:31

If a report on the Turkish website Multiplayer is correct, Naughty Dog may indeed be bringing The Last of Us to Sony’s new console. According to their report, the news comes from Sercan Sulun, PlayStation’s Eurasian Software Market Manager, who told the site “There is no information about a new The Last of Us game but I can share this knowledge; as of this summer, The Last of Us will be on the PS4. Both on PSN and physically.”

What makes this news even more exciting is the confirmation from Sulun that the PS4 version will come bundled with the new Left Behind expansion.

None of this has been made official, but if it is true, it wouldn’t be all that surprising.

Remember "This Is A Trent Reznor Song"? It Now Has A Perfect Music Video

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 15:00

Remember back in January when “This Is A Trent Reznor Song” went viral and could be heard all over the internet? Well, looks like the guy that wrote it, Freddy Scott, loved the attention so much that he created a music video to accompany the track. But it’s not just any music video. Instead, it PERFECTLY parodies a multitude of Nine Inch Nails videos. Seriously, the guy nailed the aesthetics.

Check out the video below!

Here's the FULL Trailer for 'Into the Storm' (Sigh)

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 14:35

I’m getting fairly sick of teasers for trailers, especially when it’s unclear that there’s a full trailer coming.

Yesterday I was duped into posting a short tease of today’s (shockingly epic) full trailer for New Line Cinema’s Into the Storm, which is far more impressive than a few people yelling off screen. Anyways, here’s the FULL trailer for the found-footage Twister, in theaters August 8. It looks bananas.

Directed by Final Destination 5‘s by Steven Quale, “In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot. Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, Into the Storm throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.

Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis, Jon Reep, and Scott Lawrence all star.

Breaking: 'Phantasm: Ravager' Trailer, Story Details and Full Cast!

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 13:04

BREAKING: It was officially announced to Bloody Disgusting by Phantasm creator Don Coscarelli Thursday that Phantasm: Ravager has completed principle photography. For those wondering, it will be the fifth and final entry in Coscarelli’s classic horror Phantasm series.

For the first time in the franchise’s history, a new director is helming the production, one David Hartman. Hartman is a multiple Emmy-nominated animation director, whose work can be seen in such celebrated shows as “Transformers Prime” and “Roughnecks: Starship Troopers.” Serious genre fans have long been familiar with Hartman’s edgier output, including two blood-soaked music videos for Rob Zombie (“American Witch,” and “Lords of Salem”), and his illustrations of Steve Niles’ “Strange Cases” for Image Comics.

Ravager features Reggie Bannister (a veteran of all five films) in his decades long pursuit of the malevolent Tall Man, and it finally forces him to confront the mysteries at the heart of the Phantasm saga. The entire original cast is back including Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kat Lester and Angus Scrimm, along with some great new characters. “There are also some surprises thrown in that I promise will astonish long-time fans,” teases Coscarelli.

The original Phantasm was a worldwide critical and box office smash, spawning a huge cult of fans around the world and three well received sequels.

Coscarelli co-wrote the film with Hartman and produced the film under his Silver Sphere banner along with Executive Producer Brad Baruh.

I felt it was time to let someone else play with my train set,” noted Coscarelli, speaking to David Hartman directing the fifth film. “David and I go back to my film Bubba Ho-Tep. He did terrific visual effects on that, and more recently created a wild animated sequence and some amazing visual effects in my most recent film, John Dies at the End. Our aesthetics are in sync and he’s quite an experienced director in his own right,” Coscarelli stated.

Having worked with Don [Coscarelli] before, and being a huge fan of the entire Phantasm franchise, it was a great honor to do Ravager with him,” added Hartman. “This film is a real turning point in the series. There’s real closure for the core characters that I hope fans will respond to. We were fortunate to shoot amazing new sequences with horror icon Angus Scrimm—he has terrific scenes with Reggie (Bannister) and Mike (Michael Baldwin) that are truly powerful.

Production on Ravager took place in secret in and around southern California over the past two years. “The Phantasm films have been a guerrilla operation for decades now, totally outside of the studio system,” Coscarelli notes. “We do them for the fans, and I think Ravager will definitely please them. In the past few years several studios have made offers to remake Phantasm with large budgets, but the fans were very vocal that they wanted the original cast to return and finish this iteration of the story with class. And for the first time there’s an extended sequence on the Tall Man’s home world. I know Phantasm fans will be as excited as I am to see it.
