'Mr. Jones' Clip Afraid of the Dark

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 13:57

Check out this first clip from Anchor Bay’s Mr. Jones, hitting Blu-ray and DVD on May 6th.

Having premiered at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in 2013, Mr. Jones will also have an exclusive Los Angeles limited theatrical engagement beginning May 2nd.

Scott (Jon Foster) and Penny (Sarah Jones) just moved to a remote cabin to escape the pressures of the world and breathe new life into their art. But they’ll soon discover they are not alone: an infamously reclusive artist – known only as ‘Mr. Jones’ – lives nearby. He doesn’t like to be disturbed, and only comes out at night when he drags his strange, sinister sculptures deep into the woods. When Scott and Penny’s curiosity leads them too close for Mr. Jones’ comfort, he plunges the young couple into a nightmare world of mayhem, madness and mind-bending terror.

Diane Neal (“Law & Order: SVU”), Mark Steger (I Am Legend) and David Clennon (John Carpenter’s The Thing) co-star in this startling tale from debut director Karl Mueller (screenwriter of Xavier Gens’ The Divide).

Review: 'The Sandman: Overture' #2

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 12:48

Full of unforgettable imagery and inspired dialogue, “The Sandman: Overture” #2 continues to be the high standard of creative imagination. Though the second installment took its time getting here,the team-of Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III deliver a remarkable issue worth waiting for. This is the stuff dreams are made of.

WRITTEN BY: Neil Gaiman
ART BY: J. H. Williams III
PUBLISHER: Vertigo Comics
PRICE: $3.99
RELEASE: March 26, 2014

Morpheus, Endless of Dreams, has traveled across the universe, to the distant past, to meet his reincarnations. He witnesses different versions of himself standing right in front of him, arguing with each other in the same voice. They are all different aspects of Morpheus but still represent the same person. Answering to the call of death, the multiples have been summoned together to the same location to mourn. Part of Dream has died and he demands to know why. Stuck between the real and the unreal, Morpheus has to find out who killed the dreamer.

Gaiman’s dialogue runs across the page in poetic rhythm. In each dialogue balloon, Gaiman provides a different style of language with each incarnation of Morpheus. It’s like having multiple personalities but speaking through a singular voice. Gaiman demonstrates his witty humor as Morpheus turns away after arguing with himself. Though Morpheus is the definition of serious drama, the secondary characters are always a laugh riot.

Gaiman is a true wordsmith as he plays around with his repetitive rhyming scheme. Morpheus agrees with his other twin versions, but he is technically agreeing with himself. You want to read and reread the poetic dialogue just to enjoy the wordplay. Morpheus is able to say so much about himself and still remain a mystery. Though readers think they know Morpheus through previous volumes, Gaiman is able to explore his protagonist through uncharted territory.

In the opening pages, Williams’ illustrations captures the haunting elegance of Morpheus fashionable wardrobe. In his character design, Morpheus wears a long robe as if it were a cape covering his entire body. Dave Stewart’s white tones highlights the essence of a ghostly figure gracefully floating in the air. The whiteness of Morpheus’ spectral body makes the background seem surreal and exaggerated at the same time.

Through his drawings, Williams is able to portray the beauty in dreaming and the eeriness of nightmares. In a splash page, Williams captures Morpheus in a majestic pose, as the bottom of his cape breathes fire. Williams then illustrates a demonic spider with a human head flashings its fangs at the camera. In an impressive display of color, Stewart uses red and black inks to capitalize on the hellish background.

Destined to be a classic, “The Sandman: Overture” is a must-read. Let Gaiman and Williams take you to an extraordinary dream you will never want to wake up from.

[TV] El Rey Orders Second Season of "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series"

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 12:47

It’s now safe to jump aboard El Rey’s “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” as a second season is coming, thus should be entering new territory.

El Rey Network, the general entertainment cable channel founded by filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, announced plans today to greenlight a sophomore season of the network’s first scripted original, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series”.

Based on the cult classic film of the same name, season two will be comprised of 13 hour-long episodes and will be shot in Austin, Texas, home to the filmmaker’s Troublemaker Studios. Marking Rodriguez’s first foray into television, the highly-anticipated program premiered in the US on El Rey Network on Tuesday, March 11th and premiered exclusively on Netflix through their run-of-series license in Canada, Ireland, Nordics, Netherlands, the UK and Latin America. Season two will also be available internationally on Netflix following the US premiere.

Rodriguez, who created the series and directed four of the first season’s installments, said: “This is a truly unique property and one that has really resonated for viewers. It has been a joy to bring these characters back to life and have the opportunity to take our storytelling to a whole new place. We look forward to going back into production later this year and are excited about raising the bar even higher in season two.

Scott Sassa, El Rey Network’s Vice Chair, said: “Our decision to launch this ambitious original in just our first few months on the air was certainly bold but the payoff has been incredibly satisfying. As the television landscape becomes even more crowded, it’s important for El Rey Network to have a recurring and memorable franchise that speaks to our audience and allows us to break away from the noise of all the competition. ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series’ is most certainly that kind of property and we are thrilled with the response from our affiliate partners, advertisers, viewers and the international community.

The international cast includes: D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation); Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower); Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera, Sons of Anarchy); Eiza González (Lola: Érase Una Vez); Wilmer Valderrama (That ’70s Show, To Whom It May Concern); Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights, G.I. Joe: Retaliation); Jake Busey (Starship Troopers, Enemy of the State, Identity); Don Johnson (Django Unchained, Nash Bridges); Madison Davenport (Save Me, Shameless); Lane Garrison (Bonnie & Clyde, Prison Break); Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The X-Files); and Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game, Incredible Crew).

A Brutal 'Chupacabra' And A Teenage Girl

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 12:43

IDW will be releasing a new series from Tom Beland titled “Chicacabra”. The press release came with the hook, “Chupacabras, Vejigantes, Fistfights, and Weed!” so it is possible this is some sort of stoner horror comic, but there was no further mention of weed anywhere else in the press release. Anyway, the book is about a teenage girl, sick of all the drama at her high school. After a strange family tragedy, she finds herself with a horrible monster living inside her that she must learn to control.

“Chupacabra” is a planned series of graphic novels, the first of which debuts in June.


From the press release:

San Diego, CA (March 26, 2014) – Tom Beland, best known for his multiple Eisner-nominated series True Story, Swear to God, brings his unique storytelling to IDW this June in an all-new graphic novel series, Chicacabra.

Chicacabra is a story infused with the humanity for which Tom’s work is so rightly acclaimed, but this time, Tom has written and illustrated an all-new cast of very human characters in a more supernatural setting.

“Tom Beland’s work is the perfect mix of comic-book storytelling with expressive art, interesting characters, and a resonant, emotional core,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer-Editor-in-Chief, “and I couldn’t be happier to see him apply those skills in this new way on Chicacabra. Tom’s books have always been the kind of thing you want to hand someone, whether they’re new to comics or a veteran reader who thinks they’ve seen it all. There’s something for everyone in his work, and never moreso than with Chicacabra, which pushes into the supernatural while still staying a fundamentally grounded, human tale.”

In Chicacabra, you would think being a young woman in high school would come with more than enough drama, but for Isabel Sanchez that is a mere drop in the bucket of her life. On the outside, Isabel looks and acts like your average Puerto Rican girl but after a family tragedy and then a mysterious incident she finds herself with a monster capable of great brutality living inside her. But is it her friend or foe?

Isabel will have to learn to life with a killing machine inside her and navigate high school in this first in a series of planned Chicacabra graphic novels. And heads will roll, to say the least!

“I think people will relate to Isabel. I think we all have a chupacabra in us in some way. There’s fear, doubt, many things that you hold deep inside of yourself,” said Tom Beland, “This is about two souls working together in a relationship that could be damaging as well as healing. I love making it. To a degree it was as emotional as making TSSTG.”

Chicacabra will be available in a regular edition and a special version with an alternate cover only available at the Puerto Rico Comic-Con, May 24-25 at the Puerto Rico Convention Center.

Chicacabra, a 200-page, black & white, $17.99 trade paperback, debuts in June 2014. Diamond Order Code APR140447, ISBN 978-1-63140-011-7

Do We Really Want 'Prometheus 2' To Be More "Alien-y"?

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 12:27

On Monday Prometheus 2 became more “real” to me than ever in the sense that it looks like this movie is actually happening. Not only did 20th Century Fox hire Jack Paglen to write a script for the sequel in the wake of its initial release, they just now tapped Michael Green (who just wrote the new Blade Runner for Ridley Scott and Warner Bros) to rewrite it. To me, this is significant and marks this as a priority for the studio because it’s happening after all the dust has settled. While the first film certainly didn’t lose money with a $400M worldwide take, it probably didn’t make as much as Fox was hoping for considering its budget was around $130M with a global P&A campaign that I’m sure easily exceeded $50M. Keep in mind, the studio doesn’t see anything close to the gross returns of any given film coming back in the net – so the margin of profit here, while healthy, might not be stratospheric.

But they’re doubling down now (perhaps in the light of decent ancillary revenue). Like I said, the dust has settled and they’re pressing on. Shooting is apparently scheduled to begin this fall. I’m not giving anyone a hard time here, I enjoyed Prometheus (even though the issues with its script play louder to me than they did before) and I’m excited to see what they come up with next. But what I liked about the film was the fact that Ridley Scott seemed truly engaged by the material. There was a real reason why they veered away from John Spaihts’ Alien: Engineers draft and brought on Damon Lindelof to nudge the property further into unknown territory – Scott wasn’t interested in repeating himself. While the shift from Spaihts to Lindelof was ultimately problematic (on paper I prefer the Alien: Engineers draft to Lindelof’s script), it might have been what was needed to engage Scott. And if you look at Prometheus as a film, it’s pretty clear that its new ideas and scenarios are handled with a lot more verve than the Alien elements, which tended to come across as rote and obligatory.

So with the news that Green is being brought onboard partially to make the script more “alien-y” (in the words of the source that spoke to The Wrap), I have to wonder if this project is being shifted out of Scott’s interest range. Granted, this is Sir Ridley Scott here so part of me has to assume he knows what the f*ck he’s doing (or wants to fulfill a contract clause from the first film), but it seems like backsliding. When doing press back in 2012 he was absolutely resolute that the reason it took him so long to get around to making Prometheus was that he felt that the well on Alien ideas had run dry.

So the real question is, has Scott found a new angle in the Alien-verse that truly excites him? Or is he doing a bit of fan (and studio) service? I wouldn’t begrudge him on any of this, but I was actually excited for a movie where Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw and the head of Michael Fassbender’s David rocket around the universe completely unfettered by arbitrary associations to an exploitable brand. It seemed like the franchise might pull away from its anchor and really take off in the direction Scott wanted to go. If a great director is truly inspired by the material he’s working with, I’ll take that over brand recognition any day of the week. We already have seven movies with Xenomorphs in them, how many more do we need?

Again, I could be totally wrong on all of this. Maybe Scott really has found a new idea that simultaneously excites him and allows 20th Century Fox to return to a more solid franchise footing. And if that’s the case, I really am all for it (and either way I’m excited for the multiple Michael Fassbenders we’re told to expect from the film). It’s just that there’s a finite amount of Ridley Scott films left in our future, and I want all of them to count.

[Crowd Source This] The History of Movie Websites Will Be Told!

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 12:04

I find written history so interesting because people don’t realize that what you’re learning had to come from someone’s personal perspective. This means that, while the historical events actually took place, the stories behind them are probably skewed.

This is why I always felt it important to document the history of the pioneering movie websites before their stories became lore, or misinterpreted by someone in the future. To document the events that occurred – from 1999 to the present – by the actual participants, I find, is incredibly important.

Thanks to Geoff Todd and H. Perry Horton, such a history will be cemented with Beard-Os and Badasses: The Punks Who Took Film News Underground, a new documentary film project that has exploded onto Kickstarter.

In 1995 when Patrick Sauriol flipped the switch on his film news website Corona Coming Attractions, it changed everything. No longer was film reporting and criticism, in the exclusive hands of the few, privileged elite. For the first time, fans and enthusiasts threw their keyboards in the ring, and a revolution was launched.

Beard-Os and Badasses, the feature length debut from Geoff Todd and H. Perry Horton, will be an in-depth look at “The Punks” who took control of an out of control and outdated mechanism. There were false starts, missteps, and plenty of controversy, but a revolution was launched that changed the entire landscape of American film journalism and criticism.

Bloody-Disgusting.com will be featured as one of the founding fathers, having been established back in January of 2001. It’s going to be pretty surreal to talk about our massive community on camera, and lock our eternal gratitude to you dear readers onto film!

Join the Revolution on Kickstarter, already in progress! Also follow Twitter, Facebook and the official website for more updates and ways to help!

Review: ‘Deadly Class' #3

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 11:54

Marcus and Willie take to the city with a grim task ahead of them. Remender uses the mission as a backdrop and focuses on character. “Deadly Class” #3 peels back the thin exterior over both of these tough characters, and shows that they might not be who they say they are.


WRITTEN BY: Rick Remender
ART BY: Wes Craig
PUBLISHER: Image
PRICE: $3.50
RELEASE: March 26, 2014

Last month focused on the rude introduction to the way things worked around Kings Dominion. Now with all over the exposition out of the way Remender can take a look at his characters. This issue proves all the better because of it. We get treated to some fantastic moments of Marcus and Willie out on the town.

We start to see that most of what happened at King Dominion was founded on performance. The idea of creating a dominating personality as the best defense against those around you is definitely alluring in a school filled with assassins. Now that we’re in the real world the vulnerabilities of such an act start to show.

The action takes a little bit of a back seat this month. Yet, the roof jumping and slum snooping will be enough to whet anyone’s appetite. This is a tight issue that takes Marcus back to his roots. We’re treated to a little more backstory and left with more than few revelations about characters we thought we knew. It’s the type of brilliant deconstruction that Remender is known for making look easy.

Speaking of making things look easy, Wes Craig is just beyond talented. His art of this book adds volumes of substance and style to the book. Lee Loughridge’s colors are neon soaked love letters to the eighties that compliment the art style and cement this world. Craig’s use of paneling playfully dances around the dialogue heavy script without missing a beat. It revels in smaller moments like a rooftop jump and makes them absolutely glorious to witness.

There is a lot of tension within the issue. Mostly found toward the end with the kids actually having to complete their lesson. It doesn’t come easily to them, and since it’s only their first assignment one can only imagine that things will just get more difficult from here. There is a lot of humanity in this story, with both the assassins and the victims. Everything is soaked in vulnerability that makes even the most trivial task, a little uneasy to experience within this world.

So “Deadly Class” #3 proves to be even more successful than the pulse pounding debut issue in demonstrating a grounded and dangerous situation. It’s told through the lens of broken people, and has a lot of development for characters we’ve only just met. It’s the type of story I totally didn’t expect from this book, and I couldn’t be happier to receive it. It has a ton of heart, some more context, and a touch of insanity. Also known as the perfect combination.

Rating: 4/5 Skulls.

Review: “All-New Ghost Rider” #1

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 11:33

Another Ghost Rider enters the fray this month, as all new creative team Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore take another teenager and imbue him with the spirit of vengeance. The excitement of the most recent hellish hero burns out quick. As “All-New Ghost Rider” #1 is a by the numbers origin that hardly feels earned or charismatic and only really gets interesting with the final page.


WRITTEN BY: Felipe Smith
ART BY: Tradd Moore
PUBLISHER: Marvel
PRICE: $2.99
RELEASE: March 26th, 2014

I was totally psyched to dive into this book. Ghost Rider was the first character that really drew me to comics. I came along in the Johnny Blaze days, and the character felt edgier and cooler than the rest of the Marvel universe. Robbie Reyes is no Blaze. In fact, Smith’s minimal script goes out of its way to show us the definition of the character, but somehow falls flat.

I didn’t feel a thing for his situation. I did find him relatable but I didn’t really understand the motivation for making him Ghost Rider, nor did I really feel anything in that moment.

Tradd Moore’s art is hyper stylized and helps to flesh out the world. It seems Smith’s script relies on Moore to do the heavy lifting and for the most part he succeeds. The quick cuts between panels create a sense of energy that is unrivaled in a Marvel comic elsewhere. The small flame flourishes in otherwise regular action added a nice touch to Robbie’s struggles early in the issue, but for the most part nothing overly stuck with me by the issue’s end.

Instead we’re treated to an empty origin story that gropes around in an attempt to find heart with an undefined character who is seemingly fucked into becoming the spirit of vengeance for no good reason. He’s duped, tricked, and doesn’t make any attempt to define himself outside of a quick act of compassion in a no win scenario.

What’s to come still hold hope. First issues are hard to stick. They have to keep a lot of plates spinning and sometimes its almost impossible to balance everything perfectly. I’m intrigued to see more of this Ghost Rider, but only because of the previews of issue two. As a standalone introduction to the character this feels underdeveloped, under utilized, and ends far too quickly. The last three pages actually feel like the beginning of the story.

Rating: 2/5 Skulls.

New Track From 'The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth' Emerges

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 11:00

Game designer Edmund McMillen has posted a new track called “Duress” from the upcoming rogue-like The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth. The song was composed by Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans (aka Ridiculon) and takes place during the player’s foray into “Sheol”. It’s an eerie track, that’s for sure, and definitely speaks to how this game is taking the original and stepping it up several notches. Give it a listen below but make sure Mom doesn’t catch you!

TBOI: Rebirth will be coming out for PS4, Vita, and PC later this year.

Nothing however was confirmed, as all Mansell stated was that “Plans are afoot…” We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.

Mansell’s music can be heard in the upcoming Noah, which tells the tale of the biblical hero who built an ark before a global flood. All three films were directed by Darren Aronofsky.

Latest 'Terminator' Casting Seeks Revenge...

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 09:50

Borys Kit of THR broke this “tidbit” of casting news for Terminator: Genesis, which is anything but small…

Says Kit, Attack the Block‘s John Boyega, pictured above, tested not only for Star Wars but also for the role of Miles Dyson’s son in Genesis!

Doctor Miles Bennett Dyson (Joe Morton) was a major player in James Cameron’s 1991 Terminator 2: Judgment Day. He was the inventor of the neural-net processor which would lead to the development of Skynet, a computer A.I. intended to control electronically linked weapons and defend the United States, but which would later seize control of the world and launch a global war of extermination against humanity. – Terminator Wiki.

John Connor and his Terminator intercept Sarah Connor’s attempts to assassinate him, leading to a massive shootout and the eventual death of Dyson. As you may recall, he did have a kid, playing with a remote control car, who must have a integral role in Genesis. Boyega is an incredible actor, and it would be refreshing to see him in the role, instead of Michael B. Jordan, who appears to be studios new attempt at a Will Smith…

At first I rolled my eyes at a deleted scene being released before the movie is even in theaters, but wait until you see it…

In the nearly five minute long sequence, you’ll witness a massive gang war from Gareth Evans’ The Raid 2, in limited theaters this Friday. Releasing this footage shows is a gesture that ensures fans are going to see one of the most violent and insane action films to ever grace the big screen. If this clip doesn’t reassure you, maybe Ryan Daley’s review will?

Picking up right where the first film ends The Raid 2 follows Rama as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.

[TV] "Those Who Kill" Is Getting Dumped...

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 09:01

Deadline reports both good news and bad news for fans of A&E‘s new drama series “Those Who Kill,” which was pulled two weeks ago after two low-rated airings.

The good news is that the series is coming back on the air staring this coming Sunday. The bad news is that it will air on A&E sibling LMN TV (aka Lifetime Movie Network), which they explain is not exactly a vote of confidence to the show by A&E Networks brass who kept the announcement of the series’ relaunch super low-key with a post on “Those Who Kill‘s” Facebook page.

In what looks like a burn-off run (don’t get hooked), new episodes of “Those Who Kill” will air at 10 PM Sundays. The first original episode this Sunday will be preceded from 8-10 PM by rebroadcasts of the show’s first two hours that already premiered on A&E.

The A&E debut of “Those Who Kill” starring Chloe Sevigny drew a soft 1.4 million viewers, down from the series debuts of A&E’s “Bates Motel” (3 million) and “Longmire” (4.1 million) and holding onto less than half of its “Bates Motel” lead-in.

I’m thrilled that Madison Gate Records and SpaceLab9 are releasing the album so that all the fans can relive this film’s brutality and beauty.

Madison Gate Records executive Shelly Bunge states, “Partnering on The Raid franchise has been a truly exciting experience for us.

Joseph, Aria and Fajar have produced an action-packed score that fits perfectly with the film and we’re sure the fans will love it.

Mondo's Paranorman Vinyl Will Be Clear During The Day, Glow Red, Blue, Or Green In The Dark

Tue, 03/25/2014 - 18:00

Yet another Record Store Day release that I can’t wait to get my hands on is Mondo’s vinyl release of the Paranorman soundtrack, which was composed by Jon Brion. The movie was a great deal of fun and featured some truly astonishing stopmotion, much of which I was convinced could not have been done by hand as it simply looked way too good! But that’s neither here nor there.

What matters here is that the limited edition picture disc release, only available in stores on Record Store Day (April 19th), will be clear in daylight but will then glow red, blue, or green in the dark depending on your variant!

Head below for the film’s trailer.
