[TV] How Long Will “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” Be? When Will It Premiere?

Sun, 01/11/2015 - 16:37

Ever since Starz announced “Ash Vs. Evil Dead,” the series continuation to Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead franchise, us fans have been clamoring for more information.

We have learned quite a bit in Bruce Campbell’s recent interview, including that Ash will be accompanied by two other characters. Now, at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour today, Starz head Chris Albrecht told IGN both how long each episode will be, and when we can expect to see it air.

The series, reuniting executive producer/director Sam Raimi, executive producer Rob Tapert and executive producer/star Bruce Campbell, will have half hour long episodes, not an hour, which surprised some. Regarding how that came to be, Albrecht said, “The half hour idea was their idea. And I can tell you it’s a chock-full half hour.”

As for when the show will premiere, Albrecht said, “I think most likely it will be fourth quarter [of 2015]. End of third quarter, fourth quarter, something like that. We’ve got a lot of shows this year. We’re very, very excited.”

The series will be shot in New Zealand ahead of its late 2015 debut.

We’ll have to wait to see what the show is about – but I expect to see the S-Mart used heavily, and hope they find a way to tie Mia (played by Jane Levy in the Evil Dead remake) into the series.

What Are Your Favorite Winter Horror Films?

Sun, 01/11/2015 - 16:00

It’s winter and I hate being cold. I’m that guy who wakes up and then throws a mini temper tantrum in my bed because I don’t want to get up and leave that delightful womblike comfort and warmth that is my mattress and comforter. Unfortunately, I’m an adult and I have to act like one, so I get my sorry ass up and go about my daily duties.

That’s why I feel really bad for people who have to fend off horrific villains when it’s cold outside. How much does it have to suck that you’re being attacked by [INSERT TERRIBLE FOE HERE] and you also have to make sure that you’re layering to stay warm? Even Leslie Vernon would have a hard time making sure his cardio could keep up with that!

So let’s take a look at some great wintery horror films and then share some of yours with me!

[FEAR Awards] Vote for 2014′s Horror Game of the Year!

Sat, 01/10/2015 - 20:00

This is the final category in our FEAR Awards, but don’t fret, because we’ve saved the best for last. Bloody Disgusting’s Horror Game of the Year is special in that it’s chosen by our readers and is reserved exclusively for games of the spooky scary persuasion. Red Barrels took it home last year with their debut game Outlast, which successfully beat out The Last of Us and the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead.

I think it’s safe to say the nominees in this category are all evenly matched. That will probably only make voting for the best even more difficult, but I believe in you.

Take Our Poll

You have until Thursday, January 15th to get your votes in. Come Friday, I’ll reveal the best and worst horror games of 2014, as chosen by you.

‘Zombie Army Trilogy’ Announced, Coming Later This Year

Sat, 01/10/2015 - 19:29

Two years ago, Sniper Elite developer Rebellion released a spin-off of their popular shooter series that introduced Nazi zombies to the mix. It was gory, campy fun, and seems to have been successful enough to spawn the Zombie Army Trilogy. This bundle has been jam-packed full of content that should appeal to anyone who’s wanted to shoot a zombie in the face and watch its skull get shattered in glorious slow motion.

The Zombie Army Trilogy comes with remastered versions of the first two campaigns, a third brand new campaign, a Horde mode and an assortment of new characters to control and monsters to mow down from long distances.

Zombie Army Trilogy releases on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2015.

Marvel Is Killing “Deadpool” In 2015

Sat, 01/10/2015 - 14:45

Well just in time for his big screen debut, Marvel is putting the Merc with the mouth six feet below the ground. In April’s “Deadpool” #250 Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn will kill our favorite mouthy superhero in a way that is only fitting for the character. Honestly their run  has been one of the most exciting and thrilling chapters of this weird character’s history. They truly understand the humor, and the action needed for a real Deadpool adventure. I’m sort of bummed that he has to bite the dust, but maybe this new trend of killing their flagship characters (who they coincidentally don’t own the film rights too… cough, WOLVERINE, cough) shows signs of growth instead of regression.

I’m cautiously optimistic that perhaps we can push into new territory with this news. Like maybe getting the Fantomex ongoing we so rightly deserve. I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see.

 That’s right – if you add together all the Deadpool series (creatively), April’s DEADPOOL #45 marks Wade Wilson’s landmark 250th issue! How will he be celebrating? DEATH! No, really. Wade’s about to reach the end of the line, but he’s not gone yet. Prepare for a colossal-sized series finale the likes of which you’ve never seen before as Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn and more bid the Merc With a Mouth adieu, and explore the legacy he leaves behind.

First, Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn and Mike Hawthorne serve up a 30-page main story as, the villainous Ultimatum finally makes their move. They’re coming at Deadpool for revenge – all of them! And we mean ALL OF THEM. It’s going to be a bloodbath, but Wade’s not going down without a fight though.

“This is something we’ve been naturally building towards,” says writer Gerry Duggan speaking with Marvel.com. “This isn’t being done lightly. It always comes down to what we think is right and Marvel has been very king and gracious with us and let us get away with murder: in a literal sense.”

“I have no problem telling you I’ve always wanted to kill Deadpool and not just kill him but kill him in the way that we are killing him.”

Then – Gerry, Brian and Scott Koblish bring you a long lost, full-length Deadpool tale. Remember that time Deadpool got a hold of the Infinity Gauntlet? No? Don’t worry – we’re going to tell you. And yes, you should be very worried that Deadpool now has control over space, time and reality. First order of business? Summoning the entire Marvel Universe for the Roast of Deadpool.

Finally – a killer (pun intended) line-up of celebrities, comedians and friends of ol’ Wade have come to pay tribute to the Merc With a Mouth. Cap off Wade’s final adventure with new stories from Paul Scheer & Nick Giovannetti (Deadpool Bi-Annual), Scott Aukerman (Comedy Bang Bang), Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (Thunderbolts, Thrilling Adventure Hour), Jason Mantzoukas (The League), Mike Drucker (The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon) and more!

This finale does sound incredible. I know I’ll be there for everything. What about you?

[Rumor] Is “Batman V Superman” Two Films? With Part One Hitting This Year?

Sat, 01/10/2015 - 14:31

There is this wild rumor gaining steam on the internet about the forthcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” being split into two parts. The rumor sprung up yesterday when this image hit imgur, and was picked up by Aint It Cool News

While this is a wild rumor and should be taken with a grain of salt, you can see there clearly: Part I: Enter The Knight according to this image would hit in October of this year. With part two hitting on the release date we already knew about. Now, whether or not this is true we should consider some things.

WB is no stranger to separating films. Look at The Hobbit or Harry Potter both of these franchises have been chopped apart. The schedule is feasible since they could conceivably finish the VFX work and shoot the material needed to complete this first half. From what we know about this movie, production is been underway for some time and the cast continues to grow with each week.

We’re expected to get the first teaser for the film when WB’s Jupiter Ascending hits in February, and wouldn’t be a surprise to see PART I: ENTER THE KNIGHT: OCTOBER 23, 2015 at the end. It would be a surefire way for WB to enter the Superhero movie ring fighting in a year where they have nothing and Marvel is launching their second Avengers film.

Doesn’t look like there is much of chance of this happening, but it’s a fantastic idea. What do you guys think?

Robert Englund Opens the ‘Fear Clinic’ (Trailer)

Sat, 01/10/2015 - 12:06

Fear Clinic will be released on iTunes and XBOX January 30th with a Blu-ray and DVD release slated for February 10, 2015 through Anchor Bay Entertainment.

The shocker stars horror icon Robert “Freddy Krueger” Englund, Fiona Dourif, Angelina Armani, Thomas Dekker, as well as Stone Sour and Slipknot lead vocalist Corey Taylor in his acting debut, and is directed by Robert G. Hall (Lightning Bug, Laid to Rest, ChromeSkull: Laid To Rest II).

With blood-chilling special effects by award-winning FX creators Robert Kurtzman and Steve Johnson, Fear Clinic is said to take viewers on an unforgettable journey into the very soul of terror itself.

When trauma-induced phobias begin to re-emerge in five survivors a year after their horrifying tragedy, they return to the “Fear Clinic,” hoping to find the answers they need to get cured.

Dr. Andover (Robert Englund), a fear doctor who runs the clinic, uses his “Fear Chamber” to animate their fears in the form of terrifying hallucinations. However, the good doctor soon begins to suspect that something more sinister may be at work, something that yearns to be more than just an hallucination…

[FEAR Awards] The Best Indie Horror Games of 2014!

Fri, 01/09/2015 - 20:00

While big budget horror struggles to make a comeback, a new rush of indie developers have started taking more risks with their games, resulting in a steady trickling of refreshing horror games we’d never see come from the AAA space. This willingness to innovate, paired with platforms like Kickstarter, Indiegogo and Steam Greenlight have made funding and promoting a game way easier than it was even just a few years ago.

Narrowing down the indies of 2014 was no easy task, but we’ve brought it down to eight of the year’s best so you can finish it by voting on the best of the best.

These ‘Resident Evil Revelations 2′ Monsters May Ruin Your Appetite

Wed, 01/07/2015 - 04:55

Capcom seems to be taking a page or two out of Silent Hill’s book on freaky ass creature design, because the creatures that star in this latest batch of art and screenshots that were posted on the official Resident Evil Facebook are just gross enough that I could mistake a few of them as belonging to our favorite foggy town.

These baddies are but a sampling of the ugly faces Resident Evil Revelations 2 will throw at us when its first episode debuts on February 17. For the full release schedule, head over here.

The First Trailer for Marvel’s “Ant-Man” Is Here!

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 23:31

Well it looks as if I may have to eat my words. Tonight marks the drop of the first trailer for Marvel’s “Ant-Man” and the only words that come to mind are painfully generic. There is a very huge lack of spectacle in this trailer. Not to mention the humor seems to fall flat for me. I don’t know what they were thinking after they cut this together, but it doesn’t even begin to measure up against the teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy. Is it possible Marvel has their first real failure on their hands?

We won’t have to wait long to find out, Ant-Man, directed by Peyton Reed, is set to hit theaters on July 17 in the U.S.

‘The Lazarus Effect’ Trailer Resurrects…Hell?!

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 21:57

Earlier we shared the first ever image of Olivia Wilde in Relativity Studios’ newly titled The Lazarus Effect, which now hits theaters on February 27, 2015.

Now, in addition to the film’s first poster, we have your first look at the trailer that’s ben playing ahead of The Woman In Black 2.

From what I gathered, the Flatliners-esque film begins when Mark Duplass (Creep) resurrects Wilde in sort of a throwback to Pet Sematary. Only, in a very Event Horizon-like scene, it appears that Wilde’s character is brought back from Hell, and brings along everyone’s own personal demons. It looks pretty cool, and was penned by hot up-and-coming writer Jeremy Slater.

Evan Peters and Donald Glover also star in the pic “about a group of medical students who discover a way to bring dead patients back to life.

David Gelb directs.

What Is Your Inner Demon?

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 16:00

None of us are saints. We’ve all got that dark aspect inside that peeks its head out every once in a while to remind us that we’re human and that we are capable of things that we might not be proud of or ever want to see exposed.

But sometimes its best to just let it be known and drag that darkness into the light, even if for a brief moment. So, let’s see what your own personal inner demon is!

I got ‘The Witch’, which reads:

You inner monster is a witch! She is evil, with a bad temper. Although she can be ugly, she is very calculating, and you will need to be careful not to let her out too often!

Take the quiz below and post your results!

Why ‘The Signal’ Would Have Been a Massive Hit In the 1990′s

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 15:29

Thanks to M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense, and his rash of self-masturbatory films with twists, we’re all pre-conditioned to watch for the big reveals in a movie.

Nearly every person I know feels the need to exclaim, “I figured out the twist!,” at some specific point in a film. That’s great, asshole. Movies aren’t video games, and you aren’t supposed to ruin the experience for yourself making guesses all the way through the feature. I guess living in a world of immediacy has its faults, considering people can’t sit still for 90 fucking minutes.

Anyways, I finally caught William Eubank’s sci-fi thriller The Signal, which stars Laurence Fishburne, as well as Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp, Lin Shaye, Robert Longstreet, and Jeffrey Grover.

It follows a group of college students are lured to the middle of the desert by a hacker.

The movie has been out long enough that you shouldn’t be angry if I slightly spoil the movie in revealing that there’s a huge twist – which is the point of this article.

I loved The Signal, and feel like it’s being under appreciated. Why? Because we’re always waiting for the damn twist. Signal easily would have been a blockbuster back in the 1990′s. It has such an insane finale that people would have been talking about it for weeks, and critics would be proclaiming its brilliance upon the world.

Obviously, the cat is out of the bag now, but I still hope to sway you to rent the sci-fi brain fuck this coming weekend and enjoy it for what it is.

Seen in already? Talk below…

Scream Factory: Spirits, Vamps and New Year’s Classics On Blu-ray!

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 12:54

Sink your teeth into a pair of fangtastic vampire comedies, Love At First Bite and Once Bitten, on February 10, 2015 for the first time on Blu-ray!

Then, get ready for high-definition haunts with a double feature of Vampire’s Kiss and High Spirits presents a pair of paranormal favorites from the 1980s, available at last on Blu-ray. Vampire’s Kiss includes commentary with Nicolas Cage and director Robert Bierman.

Lastly, on February 24, 2015, make a different kind of New Year’s resolution with New Year’s Evil. Scream Factory’s Blu-ray debut of the film comes complete with bonus features, including new interviews with Kip Niven, Grant Cramer and Taaffe O’Connell and director of photography Thomas Ackerman.

LOVE AT FIRST BITE: George Hamilton is possibly the tannest vampire in screen history in 1979’s Love at First Bite. When Count Dracula (Hamilton) is forced out of his castle to make room for an Olympic training facility, he relocates to New York City in search of discos, blood banks, and the fashion model who just might be the girl of his dreams. Will the Count take a bite out of the big apple — or will its mean streets take a bite out of him? Susan Saint James, Richard Benjamin, Arte Johnson, Dick Shawn and The Jeffersons’ Sherman Hemsley and Isabel Sanford also star in this outrageous romance about a guy who really loves the nightlife.

ONCE BITTEN: Jim Carrey is necking with a vampire in Once Bitten, a 1985 teen comedy also starring Lauren Hutton, Karen Kopins, and Cleavon Little (Blazing Saddles). When a vampire Countess (Hutton) seeks virgin blood, she soon discovers that it’s not as easy to come by as it was in the good old days! When she crosses paths with the still-virginal Mark Kendall (Carrey in one of his earliest screen roles), it’s a race against time to get to him before he gets it on. Once Bitten is a totally 80s teen vampire flick where the bloodsuckers don’t sparkle, but the comedy most certainly does.

VAMPIRE’S KISS: Teetering on the edge of sanity, volatile literary agent Peter Loew (Nicolas Cage) tries to find purpose in his life through a cutthroat work ethic and a hedonistic night life. But when an encounter with a mysterious beauty leaves Loew convinced that he is turning into a vampire, his behavior turns positively outrageous.

HIGH SPIRITS: Daryl Hannah, Peter O’Toole, Steve Guttenberg, Beverly D’Angelo, Jennifer Tilly, Peter Gallagher and Liam Neeson star in this hilariously haunting comedy! When a castle-turned-hotel owned by Peter Plunkett (O’Toole) falls on hard financial times, he comes up with an idea to turn the place into a tourist attraction by billing it as Europe’s most haunted castle. But just when it seems he’ll have to give up the ghost, some real phantoms show up — and they’re none too thrilled about being exploited.

NEW YEAR’S EVIL: Diane “Blaze” Sullivan, the host of a nationally televised punk-rock show on New Year’s Eve, is receiving calls from a mysterious killer who tells her of his plans to off someone at midnight in each of America’s major time zones… and she will be the last.

Starring Roz Kelly (Happy Days), Kip Niven (Magnum Force), Grant Cramer (Killer Klowns From Outer Space), Louisa Moritz (Death Race 2000), Taaffe O’Connell (Galaxy Of Terror) and Teri Copley (We Got It Made), New Year’s Evil injects an “intimate and refreshing viewpoint into what was once a tired old scenario” (Andre Dumas, The Horror Digest)…and then takes you on a non-stop thrill ride of unmitigated terror!

Bonus Features: Audio Commentary with director Emmett Alston, The Making of New Year’s Evil featuring new interviews with actors Kip Niven, Grant Cramer and Taaffe O’Connell and director of photography Thomas Ackerman, Theatrical Trailer.

Sorry, Ya’ Damned Dirty ‘Apes,’ Next Sequel Moved to 2017

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 12:42

After the success of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to the Planet of the Apes prequel, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, FOX already began moving on a third film in the franchise.

The currently untitled this film was originally slated for release in the summer of 2016 – but unfortunately things aren’t moving quickly enough for the studio who has shifted the film a full year to a newly minted July 14, 2017 date.

Cloverfield and Let Me In‘s Matt Reeves, who directed Dawn, will return to the helm.

In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, “A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

‘The Other’ a Demonic Love Story

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 12:04

Director, producer and writer Rick Bieber (Flatliners) and Ken Clark have partnered to form a new independent feature film production company, MiNDS i CiNEMA.

The first project under the banner will be the demonic love story, The Other.

The psychological horror stars Dominic Sherwood, pictured, as Zach Bradford, a young man tormented by the possibility of descending into the depths of insanity, or worse, become the target of an actual demonization. The terrors surrounding Zach, his family and friends grow to deadly proportions and he is forced to question his sanity and fears for his girlfriend Shawn’s (Charlbi Dean) safety. Once the threat of psychotic behavior reaches its climactic conclusion, Zach is confronted with an unimaginable horrific reality.

Based on a screenplay which was written and will be directed by Rick Bieber, the film will star Dominic Sherwood (Vampire Academy), Jill Hennessy (“Crossing Jordon,” “Law & Order”), Emmy Award Winner Drea de Matteo (“Sons of Anarchy,” “The Sopranos,” Dark PLaces), Charlbi Dean and Sinclaire Schaefer.

“Although unquestionably scary, The Other is also a classic love story with believable characters confronting provocative and somewhat spiritual themes,” said Bieber. “It’s our hope that the new company will produce very commercial films with evocative story lines and strong and well developed characters, regardless of genre. We’re anxious to create an appealing new home for talented emerging and established filmmakers and actors alike.”

The Other begins shooting in Los Angeles in January 2015.
