Yep, That’s a Lyre Made From a Human Skull

Tue, 07/01/2014 - 18:03

Because the world is and forever will be a source of creations that are both wonderfully bizarre and thoroughly ghastly, we can always look forward to things like this, a lyre crafted from a human skull, antelope horn, skin, gut, and hair. Whoever donated their headpiece — whether or not they were willing — has been forever immortalized in something that is officially, in my humble opinion, the very definition of metal.

If you’d like to see this creepy 19th century musical instrument, you’ll have to wait for the Metropolitan Museum of Art to take it out of storage. I’d go on, but I think I just found the perfect birthday gift for Jonny B…

This ‘Scarecrow’ Cosplay is Mind-Blowingly Good

Tue, 07/01/2014 - 17:12

It’s been awhile since I last covered amazing cosplay, but I stumbled upon this fantastic Scarecrow cosplay and I had to share it with all of you. This rendition of one of the Dark Knight’s greatest villains is the work of Ben, a 24 year-old cosplayer in Germany who clearly loves the Scarecrow as much as I do.

Scarecrow was, in my opinion, one of the best things about Batman: Arkham Asylum, and because Rocksteady knows exactly what we want, he’ll be making a glorious — and very likely terrifying — return in Batman: Arkham Knight, which releases next year.

Telltale’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Coming to PS4, Xbox One in October

Tue, 07/01/2014 - 16:41

If you’ve been waiting for Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Game to finally arrive on current-gen consoles before you decide to give in and play this amazing series, season one and two of the episodic series will arrive on the PS4 and Xbox One on October 14 for $29.99. The price is a little surprising, I was expecting it to be a bit cheaper since both seasons are already available at a lower cost elsewhere. Even still, I think The Walking Dead is more than worth its price tag.

The release date Telltale picked is also a little confusing to me. October is currently the busiest month of the year, as it will see the release of Super Smash Bros. (Oct 3), Alien: Isolation (Oct 7), Dragon Age: Inquisition (Oct 7), Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (Oct 14), Battlefield Hardline (Oct 21), The Evil Within (Oct 21), Evolve (Oct 21), Assassin’s Creed Unity (Oct 28), and Sunset Overdrive (Oct 28), among others.

I’m sure it will perform fine, but geez.

E3 Demo Footage Shows Off What Makes ‘H1Z1′ Unique

Tue, 07/01/2014 - 16:09

When Sony showed off their upcoming zombie survival game H1Z1 in April, it looked a lot like the similarly themed DayZ. It’s impossible not to draw the comparison, seeing as both games drop players in a zombie infested world where they’re forced to survive against the harsh conditions of the world that surrounds them, as well as other players who may have been infected with the seemingly incurable condition I refer to as bandit mentality.

In this new video, H1Z1 designer Jimmy Whisenhunt goes into a bit more detail on the features and systems that set this game apart from its competitors.

For starters, there’s a feature called the Discovery System, which shows you what you can craft with items scavenged from the environment. The more items you discover, the more things you can create to improve your chances of survival. A bunch of things can be crafted, from tools and weapons to animal traps and shelter. There’s also something called emergent AI, which adds an element of unpredictability to the game. See all that and more in the video below.

‘Stasis’ Coming No Later Than Feb 2015, New Screens Introduce the Insect Queen

Tue, 07/01/2014 - 15:50

Developer Christopher Bischoff’s ambitious, and gorgeous, sci-fi horror game Stasis has been on my radar ever since it managed to raise a staggering $132,000 on Kickstarter back in December. Its visual style and setting — a starship whose rooms and corridors have been spattered with copious amounts of gore and viscera — draws immediate comparisons to EA’s Dead Space series. But this game, which combines horror with 2D point and click adventure gameplay is so much more than that.

In a post on the game’s Kickstarter page, we’re introduced to the Insect Queen, a gross tumorous mass of organic matter and horns that I am very much looking forward to vanquishing when the game arrives no later than February 2015.

I spent some time with Stasis back in March, you can see how that went in the video below.

The 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to take Montreal by storm with three weeks of inspiration and excitement starting July 17 until August 5, 2014. The full 2014 lineup of programming and special events will be revealed shortly, but in the meantime, here’s some new imagery to whet your appetite.

In the Irish horror, “An enigmatic stranger is detained in the cells of a remote police station one fateful night. From his basement dungeon the charismatic loner begins to take over the minds of his fellow inmates and those of the police officers. He influences them to bend to his evil will and their latent inner demons explode in a crazed night of blood-spilling and mayhem. Only rookie cop Rachel is able to resist him … Will she survive?

Judge, Jury and Executioner are waiting in Let Us Prey.”

[Fantasia '14] ‘The Grudge: Beginning of the End’ Haunts Festival!

Tue, 07/01/2014 - 14:58

The 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to take Montreal by storm with three weeks of inspiration and excitement starting July 17 until August 5, 2014. The full 2014 lineup of programming and special events will be revealed shortly, but in the meantime, here’s some new imagery to whet your appetite.

We revealed a few months back that Ochiai Masayuki, who directed Infection, Hypnosis and the absolutely atrocious 2008 remake of Shutter, is set to pen and get behind the camera for Ju-on: Owari no Hajimari, or The Grudge: Beginning of the End.

Today, we got our hands on new imagery from the latest entry in which, “An elementary school teacher named Yui visits the home of a boy named Toshio Saeki who’s been absent from school for a long period of time. When she arrives, she re-lives the horrific tragedy which occurred in the Saeki household 10 years earlier. A cardboard box left in a closet holds the key to revealing a long-hidden truth.” Nozomi Sasaki and Kai Kobayashi star.

‘Escape Dead Island’ Announced, Includes ‘Dead Island 2′ Beta Access

Tue, 07/01/2014 - 14:44

If you fancy yourself a fan of the Dead Island franchise, you must be so happy right now. There’s the colorful ZOMBA, or Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena game Dead Island: Epidemic, the Yager-developed Dead Island 2, and now we have a third game called Escape Dead Island.

Deep Silver describes Escape Dead Island as a survival mystery game, so it doesn’t sound like it will share the zany, carefree personalities of the other two games. It will be set on the fictional island of Narapela and follow Cliff Calo, the son of a wealthy media mogul, who makes a trip to Banoi to uncover the truth behind the epidemic.

Sadly, this will be a single-player experience — another first for the series — but they are releasing it at a discounted price of $39.99.

In related news, if you purchase the game at GameStop you’ll get access to the Dead Island 2 beta that will kick off sometime next year.

Escape Dead Island releases this fall on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

[Fantasia '14] ‘Housebound’ Horror Trapped In the Walls

Tue, 07/01/2014 - 14:18

The 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to take Montreal by storm with three weeks of inspiration and excitement starting July 17 until August 5, 2014. The full 2014 lineup of programming and special events will be revealed shortly, but in the meantime, here’s some new imagery to whet your appetite.

Check out these new images from the horror comedy Housebound, which was acquired by XLrator Media for release in the States.

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.

Housebound is directed by Gerard Johnstone and stars Morgana O’Reilly, Rima Te Wiata, Glen-Paul Waru, Cameron Rhodes, Millen Baird, Ross Harper, Bruce Hopkins, Ryan Lampp, Ian Mune and Wallace Chapman.

The Six Best Indie Comics by the Big Two’s Best Minds

Mon, 06/30/2014 - 15:27

When most people think of comics they picture Batman and Wolverine slugging it out on an exploding aircraft carrier. Marvel and DC, or The Big Two as they are often called, have dominated the market for eight decades. Super hero comics are synonymous with the comic book medium itself, certainly, but if you are only familiar with these kinds of book then you are really missing out on what comics have to offer. Here at Bloody Disgusting, we tend to let the other guys talk about The Big Two and focus instead on the darker side of comics. Outside of the capes and cowls, story reigns supreme.

Editorial By: Epic Switzer

 

Creator owned work from publisher like Image give the freedom to tell the kinds of stories the team are passionate about telling. These titles are many, and cover just about every genre out there. Luckily, the biggest names at DC and Marvel also have some of the most engaging and original creator owned books. So if you haven’t yet found the courage to step outside your spandex comfort zone, then here are some of the best book from your favorite Marvel Now and New 52 creators.

Severed by Scott Snyder & Atilla Futaki

Scott Snyder has become one of the most influential writers at DC since the start of the New 52.  His run on “Batman” has been flawless for 32 issues, and he has orchestrated some of the best bat-centric crossover events in recent history.  His Vertigo book “American Vampire”  has been one of my favorite continuing horror titles for several years.  If you are a diehard DC fan, however, you may have missed a gorgeous 7-issue miniseries he did with writer Scott Tuft and artist Attila Futaki for Image called “Severed.”

“Severed” is a turn of the century serial-killer story about a young boy named Jack who runs away from home in search of his father.  Jack finds a traveling salesman to accompany him on his journey who in fact is one of the most disturbing killers in the history of comics. The story is notable for it’s expert pacing and stomach-turning suspense.  This book feels like Hitchcock at his blood-soaked best and is one of the beautiful hardcovers that I’m proud to display on my shelf.  For horror fans, “Severed” is a must read.


Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky

Matt Fraction has been one of the busiest writers at Marvel for a decade now.  He has done great runs on just about every character you can think of, and his recent Hawkeye and Fantastic Four runs have been critically acclaimed.  He wrote the main title in the Fear Itself event, and was a part of the Avengers vs. Xmen crossover event in 2012.  His writing is known for quick wit and dry humor and for his ability to ground larger-than-life characters with honest emotional weight.  If you only know his Marvel work you might not have expected what he’s doing over at Image, but I can pretty much guarantee you will love “Sex Criminals.”

If you’ve read my recent review than you already know I think Sex Criminals is one of the smartest and most socially relevant books being published today.  Fraction’s “sex comedy” may seem, in passing, as an excuse for dick jokes and cartoon nudity, but in reality this book has a ton of heart.  It follows a couple who have the ability to freeze time when they orgasm (stay with me) and they use this power to rob banks (no really) until they are caught by the secret sex police (seriously).  If that sold you than I’ve done my job, but if not you have to understand that this book is really a love story; one that addresses many of the issues with relationships, mental health, and struggling through your 20s.  I can’t imagine anyone not relating to that, so if you can handle dildo swords and the fuck word, you may just end up loving this book as much as I do.

 

The Manhattan Projects by Jonathan Hickman & Nick Pitarra

Some would consider Hickman’s run on Fantastic Four and FF to be the best in the series.  As the current writer of “Avengers,” Hickman continues to deliver benchmark material and epitomize the Marvel brand.  Outside of Marvel, Hickman has written a number of critically acclaimed series like the recent “East of West” and a personal favorite of mine, “The Manhattan Projects.”

“The Manhattan Projects” is somewhat esoteric in that it is an alternate history book about the physicists that developed the first atomic bombs during World War II.  Of Course you don’t need to be intimately familiar with the work of Joseph Oppenheimer, Richard Feynman, and Einstein to enjoy this book, but you do need to be the kind of person that gets excited about wormholes, evil twins, and talking dogs.  “The Manhattan Projects”  is a clever book with off the wall ideas that doesn’t take itself too seriously.  And if you know a lot about the Kennedy Administration, its just that much better.

 

 

Fatale by Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips

Within The Big 2, Brubaker is probably best known for his work on Gotham Central, a book about Gotham City Police Department (and hopefully a big inspiration for the upcoming Gotham tv show) and his iconic retooling of Daredevil.  His collaboration with Sean Phillips, artist of Fatale actually began with Criminal, an Icon book (Marvel’s creator owned label).  The team continued to crank up dynamite crime books throughout the Criminal series, to Incognito, and eventually to Image with the horror-noir “Fatale.”

My recent article will tell you everything you need to know about Fatale and why you should absolutely be reading it.  This book has the best combination of style and substance you’ll ever get from a comic book.  Tons of flash, plenty of bang.  I really can’t recommend it enough.  If you get off on the hard boiled sensibilities of classic noir or have a penchant for the macabre and cosmically horrifying, this is your new favorite book.

 

Underwater Welder By Jeff Lemire

I’ve read everything Jeff Lemire has done and I would recommend all of it to you.  If you are a New 52 fan, you probably are familiar with his work on Animal Man, Justice League Dark, Green Arrow and the new Justice League United.  Jeff Lemire’s indie work is mired in his rural canadian upbringing.  He gives a voice to a culture that is relatively unheard from, and handles his characters with the most care and sincerity of any writer I know.  His vertigo books Sweet Tooth and Trillium are excellent, but if you really want to get to know Lemire, pick up Top Shelf books’ “The Underwater Welder.”

“The Underwater Welder” is the kind of book that will haunt you long after you finish.  It’s creeping pace and Twilight Zone-esque plotting create an atmosphere not common in mainstream comics.  The book is a psychological exploration of Jack, an oil rig worker with a pregnant wife who has some seriously unresolved issues with his father.  As things become supernatural, it is unclear if we are seeing reality or a physical manifestation of Jack’s emotional turmoil.  This kind of thematic story telling is what makes Lemire stand out, and his utilitarian art is easily digested and powerful.  You’ll breeze through this story and be ready to tackle the misleadingly dense “Essex County” trilogy.

 

Insufferable By Mark Waid & Peter Krause

Mark Waid has done more knockout work for DC and Marvel than I could possibly ever mention.  Currently Waid has been scripting Daredevil at Marvel for several years and personally I think it is the best book Marvel is doing right now.  Independently, Waid has become instrumental in the digital comics movement and has done a lot to help up and coming writers and artists get their work out there.  His website, Thrillbent.com is a digital subscription platform for independant comics.  For $3.99 a month you can read the entire back catalogue of Thrillbent comics from Mark Waid and other creators (like the always awesome James Tynion IV) as well as new books every week.  One of the flagship titles, and the most appropriate per our discussion, is the post-modern superhero story “Insufferable.”

“Insufferable” essentially poses “Robin” as a socialite party-boy douche bag and “Batman” as an aging, schizo, mad man.  Comedy, and a lot of intense drama, ensues. This book will be historically known as the first digital-only comic to get it right.  If you have only ever read print comics, or have had bad experiences with the way they translate to digital, you have to check out “Insufferable” and the rest of what Thrillbent.com has to offer.

That’s what the best minds at Marvel and DC have produced outside of those publishers.  What do you think of my list?  Will you be test driving any of these great books?  Let me know what I missed in the comments below!

 

Epic Switzer AKA Eric is an aspiring filmmaker and screenplay writer living in Los Angeles.  His work tends to focus on the lighter side of entropy, dystopic futures, and man’s innate struggle with his own mortality.  He can be found on twitter @epicswitzer or reached via email at ericswitzerfilm@gmail.com

See the Massive Power of ‘Into the Storm’!

Mon, 06/30/2014 - 15:24

A new image blows in from New Line Cinema’s Into the Storm, helmed by Final Destination 5‘s by Steven Quale.

In theaters August 8, “In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes.

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.

BD Playlist: Lonnie Vol. 1

Mon, 06/30/2014 - 15:00

Today brings yet another BD Playlist where we, the BD writers, bring you the songs and artists that we’re currently obsessed with. This time, we’ve got our comic book editor Lonnie with a few of his own suggestions! He goes from old school to brand new with his recommendations and it’s, as usual, a varied list that showcases a wide spectrum of tastes. Check it out below!

Every Time I Die – From Parts Unknown

I’ve been getting back into my hardcore roots recently, probably as a way to cope with some recent changes in my life, but I’ll spare you the dramatics. The new Every Time I Die album is one of the best I’ve heard in recent years. It kicks off with real dirty, heavy tracks, and naturally transitions into some slower tunes that hold the grit of their earlier work. This album is brilliant and shows that these guys continue to innovate in a genre that seems to be dying.

Anchor Bay Plans a ‘Grave Halloween’

Mon, 06/30/2014 - 14:57

In Japan, on the northwest base of Mount Fuji, lies a patch of dense forest roughly 21 miles square. Called Aokigahara, or the “Sea of Trees,” it’s also known as the “Suicide Forest.” For one woman desperate to resolve a loved one’s death, it will become a battlefield for her very soul…

On September 30th, Anchor Bay Entertainment presents Grave Halloween on DVD. Directed by Steven R. Monroe (2010’s I Spit On Your Grave) and produced by John Prince (Metal Shifters, 12 Disasters, Collision Earth), Grave Halloween terrified viewers during its premiere last year as part of Syfy’s 31 Days of Halloween celebration.

In the film, Kaitlyn Leeb (Wrong Turn 4, Total Recall) stars as Maiko, a college student whose mother, years earlier, took her own life in the infamous “Suicide Forest.” Now leading a student documentary film crew, Maiko hopes to shed light not only on this infamous cultural landmark, but also bring some closure to her own inner demons sprung from her tragic past. Soon the entire group realizes that their hunt for the truth is now coming after them, in a fight for survival against those who may have died in the Suicide Forest, but never left it.

Co-starring Cassi Thomson (“Big Love,” “Switched At Birth”), Graham Wardle (“The X Files,” “Heartland”), and Hiro Kanagawa (“Caprica,” “Smallville”), Grave Halloween leads viewers on a harrowing journey into a nether world where a forest can become a graveyard, and the dead can tip the scales between salvation and damnation!

Stacy Martin Moves Into Wheatley’s ‘High Rise’

Mon, 06/30/2014 - 14:05

Nymphomaniac star Stacy Martin has been cast in Ben Wheatley’s High Rise, reports Screen Daily. Martin joins the growing cast that already includes Tom Hiddleston, Elisabeth Moss, Luke Evans, Sienna Miller, and Jeremy Irons.

The film is based on J.G. Ballard’s 1975 novel of the same name, which various people in the industry have been trying to adapt for decades. In the novel, the occupants of a high rise apartment building become isolated from the outside world and gradually descend into a brutal, primal society. It’s like Lord of the Flies with adults rather than kids, pitting the wealthy on the building’s top floors against the middle class lower dwellers. No word yet on who the 23-year-old Martin will be playing.

The screenplay was penned by Amy Jump, Wheatley’s regular collaborator and shooting is scheduled to begin in July in Belfast.
