Wilson “If You Ever Leave Me, I Will Find You” Music Video Premiere

Mon, 06/23/2014 - 12:00

We’ve teamed up with Detroit metal band Wilson to bring you the music video premiere for their track “If You Ever Leave Me, I Will Find You”! Put together by Tradesmen Films, the video shows a cop brutally and viciously beating down offenders, all while looking like some demon out of Hell. Things take a strange and twisted turn for the worse when the police officer’s wife is held hostage. Trust me when I say that things get a bit bloody and more than a little violent! Check it out below!

“If You Ever Leave Me, I Will Find You” comes from the band’s album Full Blast Fuckery, which you can snag on iTunes. The band will be celebrating the vinyl release on June 28th at the Magic Stick in Detroit, MI.

The Dude Designs ‘Lead Me Astray’ Poster

Mon, 06/23/2014 - 11:48

Bendy Spoon Productions have released the official poster for their Australian indie thriller film Lead Me Astray, which was designed by The Dude Designs (Tom Hodge) who is known for posters such as Almost Human, The Innkeepers and Hobo With A Shotgun. Because Tom Danger’s Lead Me Astray takes its cues from the atmosphere heavy and synth-driven films of the 70s and 80s, the producers thought The Dude Designs would be the best person for the job and he has definitely pulled through designing a beautiful poster for the film.

Produced on a budget of less then $10,000, the film follows a young veterinary student, Alexis Willard, as a single act of violence causes his life to come crashing down around him, putting the one person he loves in unspeakable danger as his mysterious past claws its way back into his present. The film stars Jace Pickard, Alannah Robertson, Tim Page, Logan Webster and Addi Craig.

The film is set to be completed later this year and released into national and international film festivals.

Documentary About the Demonologist Who Inspired ‘Deliver Us From Evil’!

Mon, 06/23/2014 - 11:44

I’m not a ghosthunter; I’m not a paranormal investigator; I’m a demonologist,” says the real Sarchie.

Those of you who have been reading up on the July 2 release of Deliver Us From Evil knows that it is allegedly based on the accounts of a real NYPD sergeant, Ralph Sarchie, who spent many years on the force while assisting with exorcisms in his spare time.

As promised back in May, Sony has released the following 15-minute documentary about Sarchie, where he talks about his real-life experiences investigating demonic possessions.

Sarchie, who wrote a 2001 book about his demon-chasing career called “Beware the Night,” says he assisted at more than 20 such rituals, and investigated more than 50 spooky cases in all. He and his crew would typically roam a spirit-infested house to spread holy water, incense and holy oil, then pray in unison. (Source: The NY Post, EW)

[TV] Look Ahead At “True Blood’s” Final Season (Trailer)

Mon, 06/23/2014 - 11:17

HBO released a new “look ahead” trailer for the seventh and last season of “True Blood,” which returned this past Sunday. The trailer asks this one major question, if vampires are immortal, why do they need to drink blood to survive? I guess that ties into this season’s arc?

In the return episode, “Jesus Gonna Be Here”, “A band of rogue H-vamps crashes the vampire-human mixer at Bellefleur’s, with shocking results. As Sookie (Anna Paquin) seeks refuge from accusations that she’s somehow to blame for the chaos in Bon Temps, the “one vampire for every human” plan moves forward. In the face of a vigilante insurrection led by redneck Vince (Brett Rickaby), Bill (Stephen Moyer) receives aid from an unexpected source.

It was written by Angela Robinson and directed by the one and only Bill Compton, Stephen Moyer.

Tim Burton’s ‘Batman’ Turns 25 Years Old!!

Mon, 06/23/2014 - 11:08

It’s sort of weird coming home from the gym and learning that today marks the 25th anniversary of Tim Burton’s Batman. The reason is that I literally work out where I saw the film all of those years ago (as the theater turned into a gym, clearly). Running on a treadmill in the exact spot where I saw Batman is such a bizarre experience – not to mention that it makes me feel crazy old.

I remember being obsessed with the movie, and that my dad went out of his way to hunt down the first action figure, which was impossible to get because the toy store employees kept grabbing the “Batman” figure for themselves and local comic shops. If you wanted a “Bob the Goon” action figure, you were in luck…

I also have a strong recollection of sort of hating that Batman was all black. I grew up watching the old TV series and always pictures him with the classic blue and grey getup. The explanation that the yellow logo would draw gunfire to his bulletproof vest was enough, though, to sell me on the new look.

25 years later I still believe that Michael Keaton was the best Batman, although Christian Bale is clearly a better Bruce Wayne. Kim Basinger as Vicki Vale, don’t get me started (mmmm mmm mmmm). And let’s not forget how incredible Jack Nicholson was at The Joker, and how Prince’s music stole the show. All of these years later the movie has aged like fine wine, becoming a classic comic book adaptation that is everlasting. If you haven’t picked up the blu-ray yet, I strongly advise doing so because the blacks in the movie are so dense that the HD really amplifies just how incredible it looks.

Batman was money 25 years ago, and it’s still money today.

‘The Jungle’ Clip Argues Over Superstitions

Mon, 06/23/2014 - 10:56

On DVD June 24 via Entertainment One Andrew Traucki’s (The Reef, Black Water) The Jungle, starring Rupert Reid and Agoes Widjaya Soedjarwo.

Below we’ve landed the first clip in which they prepare to catch and tag some animals. Then, they argue over superstitions.

A team of conservationists sets out to explore the dense Indonesian rainforest in search of the legendary javan leopard. But the deeper into the jungle they journey, the more nervous the group’s native guides become – local legend has it that a deadly werewolf-like creature roams the dense jungle. Determined to complete their mission, the expeditionists venture farther into the darkening forest, only to discover they are being stalked by an unseen predator: one that has no fear of humans.

[Review] ‘Heatstroke’ Needs More Stephen Dorff

Mon, 06/23/2014 - 10:30

Man, it’s weird to say that a movie is actually worse off without Stephen “We’re All Adults Here” Dorff. I don’t mean that as a jab at him, I think he’s a decent actor, but he’s not the type of guy who one typically thinks of as elevating a movie. In the new thriller Heatstroke, he comes off like a Shakespearean veteran compared to his co-stars. His character plays second fiddle to Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”) and Svetlana Metkina, two actresses who I’m sorry to say can’t carry a movie. The always great Peter Stormare is criminally underused as well – more of his menacing gait would have done wonders to strenghten this overall drab thriller.

Josie (Williams) is the petulant, estranged daughter of research scientist Paul (Dorff – Space Truckers). When she’s busted with some weed, her mother insists Paul take her along to Africa, where he studies hyenas. A little time in the desert might do this young girl some kid before she falls down a pit of drugs, booze, and hooking, I guess. His girlfriend Tally (Metkina) doesn’t get along very well with Josie, but that’s okay because what better way for a daughter to bond with her dad’s new girlfriend than by being chased by homicidal rhino poachers and hungry hyenas through an African veld?

Heatstroke is a slow build with the first act dealing essentially with the dynamic between Paul, Tally, and Josie. They’re trying to get her interested in hyenas and the stark beauty of the desert, but she’s more interested in her iPad. There’s some nice intimate moments between her and Paul, and I think Dorff is really damn good in these scenes. He’s got a fatherly warmth coming off him, though you can still tell he thinks his daughter is a peevish brat.

Once the action does kick in, the film see-saws between suspense and what basically amounts to down time where Josie and Tally look for water. The poachers, led by Stormare are always one step behind them. The time we spend with him and his crew is interesting enough, but they’re all one-dimensional villains and like I mentioned earlier, not enough Stormare. The ebb and flow of the suspense means that by the time the climax comes around, there’s nothing built up. So what could’ve been a tense moment is just a flaccid fizzle out.

One thing Heatstroke director Evelyn Purcell does a great job is portraying the desert as the harsh mistress (I assume) she is. During Josie’s first ride out to Paul’s camp, she looks out at the landscape and there’s just nothing. “There’s nothing for me here,” she tells her dad at one point. Even when they come across a watering hole, the water’s filled with bacteria, undrinkable. Then, of course, there’s the hyenas, who do a better job playing villains than the humans here.

Heatstroke will available on VOD, iTunes, and in-theaters July 4th.

If you’re a fan of black and white cinema mixed with a dash of modern flavor, then the upcoming The Phantom Of The Opera vinyl release from One Way Static Records must have you chomping at the bits and salivating an unhealthy amount (please, drink some water and rehydrate). For as many different variations of the story as there have been, there have also been as many, if not more, different scores to accompany the tale.

UK septet The Laze have continued this tradition with their own modern composition for the classic 1925 film that combines 70′s Goblin-esque stylings with instrumental arrangements that are perfect for a film as revered and cherished as this. And now you can hear the whole thing! So head on down below to listen to the full soundtrack (courtesy of FactMag).

Dario Argento Hurt In Fall At His Home

Sun, 06/22/2014 - 18:14

Italian giallo/horror director extraordinaire Dario Argento was hurt when he fell at his home in Rome, Italy. He apparently fell down a flight of stairs, which resulted in injuries to his head, neck, back, ribs, and legs. He is currently at home under the care of a personal assistant. He is being ordered to rest until the end of July, which means that he has to cancel his appearance at the “Days Of The Dead” convention in Indianapolis.

Argento is the man behind such films as Suspiria, Deep Red, Inferno, and a great many others. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Steam Summer Sale Day 4: Thrills and Chills

Sun, 06/22/2014 - 15:16

Steam’s annual reaping of all our wallets continues into a new day, complete with new sales on video games we all want but probably can’t afford. Or, in my case, I can afford a couple new purchases, but I shouldn’t give into the temptation because my pile of shame (i.e. unfinished video games) has grown larger than ever lately.

Today’s highlights include Outlast for $4.99 (75% off) and Tomb Raider for $4.99 (75% off) — both great games that are most certainly worth your time.

Those are solid choices, but the real gems can be found in today’s community picked deals. Among them is Betrayer — the atmospheric open-world shooter from some of the folks who brought us F.E.A.R. — for $3.99 (80% off), Lone Survivor for $3.74 (75% off), Metro: Last Light for $6.79 (66% off), and Slender: The Arrival for $2.49 (75% off). As of the time of this writing, these deals will remain active for the next eight hours.

If you like, let me know what games you’ve purchased so far. Day 2 and Day 3 were pretty exciting, I’m sure a few of you have given in to the numerous horror (or non-horror, because those exist too) deals each day offered.

Me? Thanks for asking — so far I’ve grabbed Battleblock Theater, Hammerwatch, and I most recently gave in to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, because it saw a substantial price cut today. I’d love to stay and chat, but I have some games to play and more to ignore.

What Do You Want The Next Horror Trend To Be?

Sun, 06/22/2014 - 15:00

Remember when Scream came out and suddenly there were a ton of self-referential slashers? Or how about when Paranormal Activity came out and we were suddenly inundated with all the found footage films imaginable? Or what about when we were getting seemingly nothing but J-horror remakes?

Horror follows popular trends, just like the rest of Hollywood. When something is popular we get slammed with nothing but that until they start performing poorly OR there are simply no ways to make it even remotely unique or interesting anymore.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t hope for a specific trend to make a comeback or even a brand new one to emerge! And if you had the decision, if you had the power, what would you want that trend to be?

Well, I’ve come up with a few trends that I’d like to see come back that I want to share below. Check ‘em out and then let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Serious horror that isn’t sadistic

Examples: The Shining and Session 9

Look, we don’t always need horror to be gory, violent, and depressingly bleak or hopeless, right? The struggle for survival is often the best part of a horror film! It gives a feeling of hope, a light at the end of the tunnel that we desperately hope the main characters will reach. By actually having an opportunity to empathize, we, the viewer, get to be a part of the story rather than just a voyeur.

Enough of films like Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Hostel, the Saw franchise (after the first one, of course). Bring on films that ditch the gore and actually make me terrified of what’s coming next.

Steam Summer Sale Day 3: Zombies!

Sat, 06/21/2014 - 16:06

In their infinite wisdom, Valve knows what you want — or at least they do if you want zombies — because that’s what we’re getting in the third day of Steam’s annual Summer Sale. Day 2 brought the scares, and today they’re following them up with a handful of deals on a few great zombie-themed games, including 7 Days to Die for $13.74 (45% off), Project Zomboid for $10.04 (33% off), and Contagion for $4.99 (75% off).

I haven’t spent much time with the first two games, but if you’re looking to shoot some good old fashioned Romero zombies in their stupid ugly, rotten faces, then Contagion is definitely worth checking out.

For the full list of deals, head on over to Steam.

‘State of Decay’ Cast Coming Soon to ‘Minecraft’ XBLA

Sat, 06/21/2014 - 02:48

Mojang is bringing the sixth skin pack to the XBLA version of Minecraft soon, and this time it will include part of the cast from Undead Labs’ post-apocalyptic hit, State of Decay. It’s a fitting pairing, though I can’t say I recognize any of the character skins, and that’s after spending an inordinate amount of time with State of Decay and both of its expansions.

I suppose none of the characters really stood out to me, at least not in the same way as Telltale’s The Walking Dead, which has also made its way to the popular sandbox game. Check them out below and let me know if any look familiar to you.

Skin pack 6 will be available soon, though we don’t have a price or release date yet.
