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.

Insanely Bizarre Alien Doc 'Mirage Men' Gets Digital Release TODAY

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 12:17

Mirage Men (read our review), the explosive documentary that explores how the United States government created a myth about UFOs and ET visitations that eventually took over the world, today has its exclusive digital premiere. Hailed as “tantalizing” by The Hollywood Reporter and “the must-see documentary of the year” by Electric Sheep, the film will be available to stream from YEKRA.com/mirage-men and from hundreds of premiere affiliate websites across the US.

Directed by Lundberg, Mark Pilkington, Roland Denning and Kypros Kyprianou, Perception Management’s Mirage Men has already generated buzz at Austin’s Fantastic Fest in September and at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam in November. The film examines how, for over 60 years teams within the US Air Force and Intelligence services exploited and manipulated beliefs about UFOs and ET visitations as part of their counterintelligence programs. In doing so the government spawned a mythology so powerful that it captivated and warped many brilliant minds, including several of their own. Now, for the first time, some of those behind these operations, along with their victims, speak out to reveal a true story that is part Manchurian Candidate and part Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

The film will become available at 10am PST Thursday morning.

Yekra Player

Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.

Mirage Men

How the US government created a myth that took over the world.

ET visitors… crashed UFOs… back-engineered alien technology… the government cover-up of a secret that would change the world as we know it…

These are the core elements of the modern UFO mythology, a story that has captivated farmers, princes and generals for generations, and shows no sign of loosening its grip on the popular imagination.

But what if, instead of covering up the UFO story, elements in the US military had actively encouraged it as part of their Cold War counterintelligence arsenal – manufacturing the myth of the UFO as a powerful weapon of mass deception and the perfect cover for all manner of clandestine technologies and operations.

Now, for the first time, some of those whose actions have directly shaped the UFO mythology, and some of their victims, tell their stories, revealing a surreal disturbing and sometimes tragic sequence of events that is part Manchurian Candidate and part Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Mirage Men draws viewers into a saucer-shaped hall of mirrors, a shadow-world where every lie contains elements of the truth, and the truth is far stranger than the UFO believers, or their detractors, would have you believe.

[TV] New Progress on "The Walking Dead" Companion Series

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 11:51

As AMC’s fourth season of “The Walking Dead” comes to an end this Sunday, the cabler is now focused on getting a companion series off the ground.

THR revealed that “Sons of Anarchy” and “Low Winter Sun’s” Dave Erickson will both co-write and executive produce “The Walking Dead” companion series.

In speaking last year with creator Robert Kirkman, IGN learned that, “…it’s going to be set in this world, but it is a new cast and a new setting, and it’s going to be very different. It’s just exciting to be able to start over again and try to do cool stuff…

…it’s a really different location with completely different people, so we are going to see an entirely different corner of the Walking Dead world. It definitely won’t be set in Georgia, I can at least say that. It’s important to us that this show exists on its own. The spinoff has to be a show worthy of existing, or else we’ve all sold out. So that’s something we’re all working hard towards doing, and I think we can pull it off. I think that the ideal situation is, when you’re watching the spinoff, you’re like, “Wow, this is a really awesome show.” The whole other show doesn’t need to exist for this show to be cool and stand on its own.

Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert executive producer, with AMC Studios set to produce.
