You hear that clicking sound? It almost sounds like there’s something in the trees, watching us. Oh well, I’m sure it’s nothing.
Earlier this month, we reported on the possibility that Jason Voorhees, Predator and/or Spawn would join the fight in Mortal Kombat X. Jason Voorhees was confirmed last week, and this morning, the Predator was too.
The confirmation comes from a listing on the Xbox Store — spotted by IGN — which describes a few of the things we can do with the Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack, like “Stalk and slash your opponents as Horror Icon Jason Voorhees, or play as Predator, the Ultimate Hunter.”
I am now going to make a bold prediction: Spawn will be announced next. There, I said it.
Mortal Kombat X releases on April 14 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Techland’s open-world survival horror game Dying Light is officially the most successful game in the studio’s history. Since its release on January 27, more than 3.2 million players have taken to the streets of Harran, slaying almost 380,000,000 million ghouls in the process.
The developer shared the impressive news on the game’s official Twitter with an infographic that breaks down some of the community’s achievements.
Eleven Eiffel Towers worth of medkits? Geez. I wouldn’t be surprised if they told me I alone contributed 1-2 of those towers. I need to heal a lot in that game.
The most popular character in Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult comic “Preacher” is the Nirvana-loving Arseface, a young teen who blew his face off emulating the late Kurt Cobain, says Deadline.
AMC has cast Ian Colletti, pictured, as Eugene Root (aka Arseface) in the pilot, which hails from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
The project, from Sony TV and AMC Studios, is about Jesse Custer (still to be cast), a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says. Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga was announced yesterday) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, the three embark on a journey to literally find God.
Here’s how the site describes Arseface: Even with his horribly disfigured face and severe speech impediment, Eugene’s still the nicest kid you’ll ever meet who really looks up to Jesse. Stomach-churningly difficult to look at, Eugene’s the town’s reviled Frankenstein’s monster but that won’t change his earnest, sweet and pure outlook on life. However, he is troubled by something terrible he’s done in the past — something he fears may have turned God himself against him.
“Clive Barker’s Nightbreed” continues the macabre tale from Clive Barker’s now infamous film and carries it flawlessly into the world of comics. Our own Jorge Solis loves the title and as an avid Clive Barker fan, his praise means big things. He said of #10 “Clive Barker’s Nightbreed” #10 will definitely shock readers with its surprising twists. Just reading the “Nightbreed” comic makes me want to watch the movie all over again.”
Make sure to pick it up when it goes on sale next Wednesday, March 25th.
Clive Barker’s Nightbreed #11
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Author: Marc Andreyko
Artists: Emmanuel Xerx Javier, Devmalya Pramanik
Cover Artist: Christopher Mitten
Synopsis: Rebuilding Midian has been no easy feat for Cabal and his people. But as the world of Nightbreed grows, the world will have to either embrace the dark or snuff the very existence of the Breed once and for all.
A lot has happened today, and none of it looks good.
Kojima Productions is now Konami Los Angeles Studio. The developer’s website redirects to a portal for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and its twitter has magically transformed into another generic MGS V account. Studio head Hideo Kojima is no longer listed as a Konami executive, and the “A Hideo Kojima Game” branding that fans have come to expect from his studio’s games has been stricken from the promotional art for MGS V.
Neither Konami or Kojima have offered any concrete details regarding these troubling developments outside of generic PR speak that does little to confirm or deny anything. A statement sent out by the publisher earlier today offered little insight into what’s going on.
“Konami Digital Entertainment, including Mr. Kojima, will continue to develop and support Metal Gear products. Please look forward to future announcements.”
It looks as if Kojima is leaving Konami.
An anonymous source confirmed this to GameSpot, which mentions a fallout between Kojima Productions and Konami after the publisher ordered restructuring and personnel changes earlier this month. Their source claims that “After we finish MGSV, Mr. Kojima and upper management will leave Konami.”
If this is true, Kojima’s departure shouldn’t have much of an impact, if any, on Metal Gear Solid V. That game is far enough along that it should be able to hit its September release date. The fate of Silent Hills — a collaborative project between Kojima and director Guillermo Del Toro starring Norman Reedus — is looking less sure.
This story is still developing. I’ll share any updates as they happen.

WGN America has released a new clip for the all-new season of their breakout hit supernatural thriller “Salem,” returning on Sunday, April 5 at 10pm ET/9pm CT. It features Lucy Lawless, the last “true” witch.
The clip features a new look at new recurring guest star Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”, “Spartacus”), with Stuart Townsend (“Betrayal,” “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”) also joined the series for season two. Lawless joins the cast as “Countess Marburg,” one of the last remaining survivors of the legendary line of ancient German witches and Townsend portrays English aristocrat “Samuel Wainwright” – a doctor looking to uncover the secrets of “Salem” and keep his own from those who would seek to discover them.
“Salem”, a bold re-imagination of the infamous 17th-century witch trials, returns for season two at the dawn of a Witch War. As the disease and devastation unleashed by a deadly supernatural ritual spread through the war-torn village, Salem’s most powerful witch, Mary Sibley, must face off against adversaries old and new who are vying for her throne.
“Salem” is a gripping one-hour drama that boldly re-imagines the infamous 17th century witch trials in colonial Massachusetts. The series stars Janet Montgomery, Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”), Seth Gabel (“Arrow,” “Fringe”), Ashley Madekwe, Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”), Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) and Iddo Goldberg (“Mob City”).

The Walking Deceased opens in theaters and on VOD/iTunes this Friday, March 20th.
We caught up with director Scott Dow who breaks down his five favorite horror spoofs, from Scary Movie to Shaun of the Dead.Scary Movie
“The original. Yes, it’s really, really silly but also who cares it was also really, really funny! The Wayans Brothers definitely put spoof comedy back on the map and with their own unique, goofy style. It’s great, I remember it was fun to see lot’s of topical jokes get thrown into the mix, all the while taking the Slasher genre down a few notches which it deserved, because those films were almost a dime a doz’ at that point. Scary Movie was way different from Airplane! or anything before. I think and I know I’m not alone on this, but once the Wayans stopped directing these films they lost their charm, but the first was pretty solid.”

We now have the first TV Spot for Poltergeist, which will be haunting theaters sooner than later, having recently shifted from its July date to May 22, 2015.
The new commercial has quite a bit of new footage that confirms they’re really remaking the 1982 Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg classic for the modern generation. In it, you’ll not only see the infamous tree sequence, but also the one in which Craig T. Nelson tears his face completely off. While the original scene was insanely grotesque (trivia: and featured the hands of Spielberg), this one looks to be more PG-13 rated, with maggots and black goo coming from Sam Rockwell’s eyes. On the other hand, the tree looks pretty dope.
Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Sharbino and Jane Adams star, with Jared Harris playing Carrigan, a larger than life TV personality who left the world of academia behind to become the star host of basic cable TV show “Haunted House Cleaners.”
Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (producer) reimagines and contemporizes the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is invaded by angry spirits. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.
Check out a new TV Spot for M. Night Shyamalan’s 10-episode psychological thriller “Wayward Pines”, which premieres on FOX at 9PM May 14, 2015.
“Matt Dillon (Crash) stars as a Secret Service agent on a mission to find two missing federal agents in the bucolic Idaho town of Wayward Pines.”
The cast also includes Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Terrence Howard (Crash), Carla Gugino (Entourage), Shannyn Sossamon (How To Make It In America), Toby Jones (Infamous), Reed Diamond (24), Tim Griffin (Prime Suspect), Charlie Tahan (Charlie St. Cloud) and Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear).
The event series is based on a best-selling novel by Blake Crouch, and executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan, Donald De Line, Chad Hodge and Ashwin Rajan.
“Secret Service Agent ETHAN BURKE (Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon; Crash, City of Ghosts) drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, searching for two missing federal agents. Ethan is the logical choice for the mission. He’s one of the best Secret Service agents in the Seattle office. He’s also the man who knew missing agent KATE HEWSON (Carla Gugino; Watchmen, “Entourage”) better than anyone. They were partners. They were more than that. Their relationship nearly destroyed Ethan’s marriage.
Everything changes when a truck slams into his car and he wakes up in the Wayward Pines Hospital, with the intense and unpredictable NURSE PAM (Academy Award and Emmy Award winner Melissa Leo; The Fighter, “Treme”) at his bedside. It soon appears that Pam may be more interested in harming than healing. She and Ethan grow into deadly rivals, and her role in the town proves much deeper than anyone realizes.
As the mysteries within the town pile up and clash with his own version of recent events, Ethan starts to question his own sanity. He is confronted by the mysterious and charismatic DR. JENKINS (Emmy Award nominee Toby Jones; The Girl, the Harry Potter franchise, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), the psychiatrist who treats him at Wayward Pines Hospital. As he begins to meet some of the local residents, including toymaker HAROLD BALLINGER (Reed Diamond; “24,” Much Ado About Nothing), Ethan forms a bond with BEVERLY (Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Juliette Lewis; Hysterical Blindness, Cape Fear), a bartender who doesn’t mince words and is as wary of Wayward Pines as he is.
Back home in Seattle, Ethan’s wife, THERESA BURKE (Shannyn Sossamon; 40 Days and 40 Nights, “How to Make It in America”), a former Secret Service Agent trainee, gets a call from Ethan’s boss, ADAM HASSLER (Tim Griffin; “Prime Suspect”). He informs her that early testing shows Ethan was never in the car that was recovered on the side of the road outside of Wayward Pines. They’re still investigating. But this isn’t enough for Theresa. Along with their teenage son, BEN (Charlie Tahan; The Harvest, Charlie St. Cloud), Theresa sets out on her own search for Ethan.
Meanwhile, Ethan is challenged at every turn by the town’s die-hard residents and especially the town’s sheriff, SHERIFF ARNOLD POPE (Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard; Crash, Hustle & Flow), who takes offense at a Secret Service agent showing up on his turf and telling him what to do. Ethan believes Pope is out of his mind and visa versa. Ethan’s continuing investigation only turns up more and more questions, and each one leads him to the most important question of all: What’s wrong with Wayward Pines?”
Wanna see the first footage from Attack On Titan, the live-action adaptation of the awesome anime that’s now on Netflix?
Below you’ll see some early holy-fucking-shit footage that aired on Japanese television! It’s an awesome tease that shows some of our heroes, the inside of one of the villages, and two Titan attacks. Attack On Titan is easily one of my favorite anime ever, and now this live-action adaptation seriously looks spectacular. It’s a wet dream.
Toho, who also makes the Godzilla films, is behind this two-part live action adventure that features “Titans” that are actually larger than the biggest and baddest Godzilla (120m vs. 108m in Gareth Edwards’ remake). And unlike most movies these days, the Titans will be a mix of both CG and practical SFX – under the supervision of special effects director Onoue Katsuro – much like Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park.
In Shinji Higuchi’s Japanese film:
“The sudden arrival of the Titans–mysterious, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour human beings one after the other–brings mankind to the brink of extinction. Fast-forward more than 100 years later. What remains of the human population now live in relative peace behind massive walls that were erected to defend themselves against the Titans. Yet once again, that peace is shattered when a Titan measuring over 50 meters tall smashes through the wall, allowing a horde of other Titans to enter. The protagonist, Eren, had been resigned to a life confined behind these walls. Nothing I do would make a difference, he thought. But when he joins the “Outer Wall Restoration Team” set up to fight against the Titans, he is reunited with Mikasa, a childhood friend and someone he had long rued not being able to save. The new recruits embark on a mission to obtain explosives, which had become rare and precious, before getting past the waves of Titans to plug the gaping hole in the wall, with humanity’s survival on the line. Will there be a future for Eren and Mikasa, and for mankind itself?”
Scott Beck and Bryan Woods directed what is being styled as an innovative take on the found footage genre told from a singular point of view.
Nightlight, in limited theaters and On Demand March 27th through Lionsgate, Bloody Disgusting has landed an exclusive clip!
“For years, the Covington forest has been shrouded in mystery, with a dark past as a final destination for troubled youths. Undeterred by the news of a classmate who recently took his life in those woods, five teens journey into the forest for an evening of flashlight games and ghost stories. But their plans go awry when the friends awaken a demonic presence, an unseen evil that will seize upon their deepest fears—and plunge them into a nightmare of absolute terror.”
Shelby Young, Chloe Bridges, Taylor Murphy and Carter Jenkins star.
The deeper you go, the darker it gets.
First of all, sorry this is so late. I was unable to catch the live airing and had to wait until it was on Hulu the next day. Anyway, iZombie has finally premiered! We have been blessed with another Rob Thomas TV show, you guys. Words cannot express how giddy I am at the thought. Sure, it’s on the CW, a network known for it’s minuscule ratings, but that network has been on a creative stride lately with shows like Arrow, The Flash and Jane the Virgin (I kid you not, that show is awesome). To give my excitement some perspective: Rob Thomas created Veronica Mars, my second favorite TV show of all time (the first would be Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Party Down, a hilarious Starz comedy about cater waiters. Both series were unfortunately canceled way too soon (though us Veronica Mars fans got treated to a movie last year that provided much-needed closure). I’m hoping the same thing doesn’t happen to iZombie, because it has gotten off to a very promising start. I’m getting ahead of myself though, let’s recap! (By the way, I’ve accepted the fact that my recaps will be very long/detailed. If you want to go straight to the review just click the arrow below and go to Page 2)Recap
We are introduced to Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver, Once Upon a Time, Masters of Sex), saving a male patient. After a hectic day, she gets invited to a boat party by Marcy (her rival),but declines so she can go on a date with her fiancé (named Major Lilywhite, of all things). After telling him about the party, he pushes her to go. Cut in media res to said boat party, where the boat party has been attacked by a horde of zombies! Cut again to Liv Moore (get it?) waking up in a body bag with “a sudden desire to eat brains!” Cut to five months later (lots of time jumps in the first three minutes, no?) and Live is at the supermarket buying bottles of bronzer and a VHS copy of Night of the Living Dead.
After a pretty awesome opening credit sequence, we get to meet Liv’s roommate Peyton (former Disney starlet Aly Michalka), brother Evan (Nick Purcha) and mother Eva (Molly Hagan, Election), who apparently have no idea that she is a zombie. We find out that she traded her residency at the hospital (and broke off her engagement to Major, who is also there for some reason) for a job at the morgue. They comment about how Liv just hasn’t been the same since the night on the boat (no kidding). After a rather unsuccessful intervention, she heads to the morgue where we are introduced to Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli), her new boss. After he gets called away, Liv prepares her lunch, a meal of noodles, hot sauce and brains. Ravi walks in on her while she’s eating, and it’s revealed that he knows she’s a zombie.
Turns out he’s known for quite a while, and he’s fascinated. Flashback to the boat party, and Liv is offered a fancy new drug called Utopia by Blaine DeBeers (creepy David Anders, of Alias fame). After turning it down, we cut back to the middle of the boat party, where Blaine has been zombified and knocks Liv into the water. Back in the present, Liv points out that if she stops eating brains, she gets dumber (a la a George Romero zombie) and can only taste things if they are incredibly spicy. They are interrupted by Detective Clive Babinaux (Malcolm Goodwin), who is working on identifying the Jane Doe whose brain Liv was eating earlier.
After holding up the fake handcuffs found on the Jane Doe’s person, Liv has a vision of Jane Doe’s life before she died. She is in what looks like a Vancouver gas station being arrested for shoplifting the day Obama was elected to office in 2008. After bringing this little tidbit up, Babinaux is noticeably skeptical. After searching arrest records, Ravi discovers that the Jane Doe is Stefani Germanotta. Ravi tells Babinaux that Liv is a psychic(ish), to get him off their case and Liv explains to Ravi that after she eats a person’s brain, she gets visions of their life.
The next day, Liv goes to help set up a children’s haunted house (because she promised her mother). After hearing someone scream, Liv has another vision of local weatherman Johnny Frost (Daran Norris, a Veronica Mars alum), strangling Stefani. She goes to Babinaux and learns that Stefani gave that name as a fake to her arresting officer in Vancouver, so now we’re back to calling her Jane Doe. Not to be fooled again, Babinaux proposes Liv go with him to confront Weatherman Frost.
At the news station, they show Frost Jane Doe’s photograph and he immediately recognizes her and reveals that he knows her as Tatiana, a role-playing hooker. Later, they go interview Tatiana’s…co-worker Tess, who speak Romanian, which Liv learns she can now speak fluently. After telling her that Tatiana is dead, Tess freaks out and reveals Tatiana’s last name: Corsa. They track down her apartment to find it ransacked. Liv has another vision of a man throwing Tatiana out her window to her death after asking her where she put his ring.
Meanwhile, Ravi is doing blood tests on Liv’s blood, revealing that he is trying to work out a cure for Liv’s zombie-ism. After realizing that she may have a chance at being human again, she goes over to Major’s place, where is is playing a zombie game (of course) with another woman. The next day, Peyton confronts Liv about how distant she’s been, to no avail. Over at the station, Babinaux is told he’s no longer the leading officer on the case, and is stuck playing second fiddle to Officer Pratt. After learning that Tatiana had “a bearded pig” (thanks to Liv’s translation), which Babinaux connects to Pratt (a bearded pig = bearded cop), who they deduce to be the murderer.
Cut to Pratt, who has two of the Tess and Monica (one of the other call girls) strapped to two chairs in a house lined with plastic. He interrogates him about the whereabouts of his wedding ring, which has been stolen and will cause his wife to become suspicious of him. Monica confesses to pawning it. Babinaux bursts in and Pratt runs upstairs and jumps out the window and shoots Liv and drives the car away. Liv jumps on top of the car and causes him to crash into a tree. Liv flies off the hood of the car and suddenly goes “28 Days Later zombie with a side of rage bomb” ( with very red eyes) and walks over to Pratt, who is now unconscious on the good of the car and nearly digs into his skull before Babinaux walks up. She suddenly morphs back into regular ol’ zombie Liv.
After Ravi performs impromptu open-heart surgery on Liv to get the bullet out of her chest, Liv goes to her mother’s haunted house dressed as a zombie. Later that night, Liv is finally able to sleep, only to wake up suddenly the next morning to a flashback of her own death at the hands of Blaine. Turns out Liv made it off the boat and into an alley, only to be attacked by Blaine! TWIST!

With the fourth episode of Resident Evil Revelations 2 out now, we’re free to talk about how great it is to have Barry back. Don’t you dare leave us again, Barry. Unfortunately, the master of guns doesn’t get any screen-time in this fan-made short from the independent production company R2 Production, but it’s a solid effort nonetheless.
These guys did a stellar job of recreating the gritty, claustrophobic look of the games. Even the actress who portrays Claire Redfield looks spot on. I’m just sleepy and delirious enough to catch myself reaching for the controller as I watch it.
Say what you will of Marvel’s Secret Wars, it will be doing a lot of fan service this summer. And I for one am all for it. I grew up reading “Age of Apocalypse” and I couldn’t be more excited for the original series writer to return to this world. It’s an alternate timeline that arrives just in time for the Age of Apocalypse film hitting later next year. But I can’t help but wonder why Marvel is decimating their X-Men line proper in lieu of all the alternate timelines.
Something seems fishy about killing off the regular versions… perhaps a new age of Inhumans is truly on the way. But if so, the mutants are going out with a bang.
His war has been won. En Sabah Nur stands triumphant over the bones of his enemies. None will be left alive! This July, return to one of the most iconic X-Men stories of all time in AGE OF APOCALYPSE #1 – a new Secret Wars series! Be there when writer Fabian Nicieza returns to the post-apocalyptic wasteland he helped create, as brought to life by artist Gerardo Sandoval (Guardians 3000)!
Apocalypse rules his domain on Battleworld with an iron fist. The few humans left alive have been enslaved. The mutant rebellion has been crushed – it’s survivors, scattered. But the terrorist insurgents known as the X-Men will not go quietly into this grim future. They will fight! They will end Apocalypse’s reign of terror! Even if it means their very lives!
“This Age of Apocalypse, taking place on Battleworld, is a story about the choices heroes have to make after they’ve already lost. What are the X-Men about if a dream of coexistence between humans and mutants has become a lost cause?” asks series writer Fabian Nicieza, in an interview with Marvel.com.
But the fight is not yet over. A very special mutant named Cypher may hold the key to turning the tide. A weapon to be pointed directly at Apocalypse and fired.

On Sale in JULY!
Tomorrow, the romantic horror hybrid film Spring, which has gained much acclaim, will be hitting select theaters as well as VOD. And next Tuesday, the highly regarded score, which was composed by solo artist Jimmy Lavalle (The Album Leaf), will be released on digital formats via Eastern Glow Recordings. The album is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
Select tracks will also be included in the Spring BitTorrent bundle, which you can read about here.
I created the soundtrack to SPRING in just over a few months, first approaching the main tones that I wanted to repeat to follow the characters. There are many tense and suspenseful moments in the film and I wanted to be able to add to the intensity of these scenes in a unique way, so I began to sample a Chinese musical bowl, various music boxes, and other odd objects that I could stretch out the waveforms to create eerie ambient drones. During the process, my wife and son came in to say hello and she suggested that I sample our eight-month-old son’s voice, which I ultimately used quite heavily throughout the score. Once I had my sounds, absolutely everything else fell in place.
Directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, the film, “…follows a troubled American backpacker in Italy whose romance with a beautiful but mysterious local girl turns into an unexpected nightmare when her dark, primordial secret threatens to destroy their new-found happiness.”
