Stinky Image Gallery For ‘Septic Man’

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 12:36

Starz Digital Media is set to release the award-winning horror film Septic Man (read our review) this summer.

The film will be available On Demand and for digital download August 12 and will have a limited theatrical run on August 15. The DVD will be available August 19.

Bloody Disgusting has been provided with a batch of stills to go with the art and trailer.

From the creators of Monster Brawl, Exit Humanity, and 2014’s Hellmouth and Ejecta, Septic Man dazzled audiences at the 2013 Fantastic Fest where its star Jason David Brown (Exit Humanity) won “Best Actor” in a horror feature. The film also garnered a prize at Toronto After Dark 2013.

“Septic Man follows Jack, a sewage worker who is determined to uncover the cause of the town’s water contamination crisis. During his investigation, he becomes trapped underground in a septic tank and undergoes a hideous transformation. He must team up with a docile Giant and confront a murdering madman in order to escape.

Septic Man was directed by Jesse Thomas Cook (Monster Brawl) and written by Tony Burgess (PontyPool). It co-stars Molly Dunsworth (Bunker 6, Hobo with a Shotgun) and Robert Maillet (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones).

New Concept Art From Rob Zombie’s ’31′ Storms In!

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 12:26

It’s Halloween night in Rob Zombie’s forthcoming horror flick, 31, which he’s already beginning to tease on his Facebook page.

Today he shared a second production drawing for the film, presumably by Alex Horley, which shows a half-naked girl in a Halloween costume being stormed by a monster of a killer.

Zombie promises that there’s BIG news coming on July 31.

All I can tell you is that it’s a completely original idea, it’s something new,” Zombie teased last month. “It’s not based on anything. I’ll start shooting the movie in the fall. So hopefully starting from October, I’ll start shooting it. For right now, I’m going to keep the details secret. But it’s not based on anything.

Kevin Smith’s ‘Tusk’ Leads the Way For ‘Moose Jaws’ #SDCC

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 12:18

For whatever reason most of the mainstream press skipped out on the late-night San Diego Comic-Con event in which Kevin Smith revealed this absolutely bonkers trailer for Tusk, his horror film about a man who is turned into half walrus.

Thankfully, /Film was on hand and brings back more news, good news only if Tusk ends up being as crazy as it looks.

Tusk will be the first film in a newly planned series that Smith calls “The True North Trilogy.” Likely a reference to a similar Canadian setting, says the site, Tusk would be followed by Yoga Hosers (which Smith wants to make next, and be PG-13) and a new movie called Moose Jaws which he described as, yes, “Jaws, with a moose.” All three films would return the same actors as Tusk – Justin Long, Michael Parks and Joel Haley Osment.

Smith’s next film, Yoga Hosers, is a bit more mysterious at the moment. He talked like it was going to shoot next and maybe be be ready for release next year. And though the film was spawned by an odd story of theft among yoga enthusiasts, that seems to not be the focus at all. Smith said he was hoping to make Yoga Hosers his second PG-13 movie (the first being Jersey Girl) because it stars two 15-year-old girls as the main characters. In the film, they’ll battle people with superpowers. Or maybe have superpowers. It wasn’t exactly clear. But Smith said he would be “run out of the country” once we heard what the powers in the movie were.

Then there’s Moose Jaws. The only thing Smith said beyond the premise is that it featured a scene of the killer moose chowing down on a little girl. So it sounds like some kind of exploitation horror.

I really, really didn’t like Red State, mostly because it lacked impact and showed Smith didn’t really understand horror or suspense. But, there’s always hope that he’s learned from experience and criticism, and delivers with Tusk, which is my hope. I’d love to be excited for bizarre horror cinema that’s been vacant for quite some time in Hollywood…

New ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Character Posters Shred! #SDCC

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 12:05

In theaters May 15,2015, Warner Bros. released these four Comic-Con character posters for Mad Max: Fury Road, which stars Charlize Theron (Prometheus) as Imperator Furiosa. The rest of the cast includes Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Transformers: Dark of the Moon), Zoë Kravitz (Divergent) and Josh Helman (Jack Reacher). In addition, we’ve re-added the film’s first footage, which also debuted at the Con.

“Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (Hardy), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.

And… Furiosa (Theron), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

[TV] USA Building Alien “Colony” With “Lost” Showrunner

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 11:52

Deadline says today that USA Network has handed a pilot green light to “Colony” (working title), from “Lost” alum Carlton Cuse and Hercules co-writer Ryan Condal. The project hails from Legendary Television, marking the first scripted pilot for the company, and Universal Cable Prods.

The show is described as a naturalistic drama set in the near future in Los Angeles, which exists in a state of occupation by a force of alien intruders. Some collaborate with the authorities and benefit from the new order, while others rebel and suffer the consequences. The project centers on a family torn by opposing forces and making difficult choices as they balance staying together with surviving the struggle of the human race.

Written and executive produced by Cuse and Condal, “Colony” was featured on USA’s development slate in May.

Astounding ‘Deadpool’ Test Footage Makes Me Weep…

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 11:42

Ever since I picked up a copy of “New Mutants” issue #98 in 1991, I’ve been a huge fan of Deadpool, who is described by wiki as “a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary”. Next to Wolverine, he’s just the coolest character around – not to mention his design has always been sleek and badass.

Well, today our friends at Latino-Review uncovered the most excellent never-before-seen test footage from the now defunct Deadpool feature film over at FOX.

The site explains:

In 2012 VFX artist and last director to be attached to a ‘Deadpool’ live-action film, Mr. Tim Miller shot some performance capture with Ryan Reynolds reprising his ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ character, Wade Wilson/Deadpool, but looking like he’s supposed to this time.

There is a script for an R-Rated version of this movie by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the ‘Zombieland’ guys, that was and continues to be leaked after Fox put this movie in an infinite holding pattern.

This footage shows off the mood of that script and the character, gags and pacing in tact.

Seriously, this is some fantastic stuff, and easily the better comic character movie footage I’ve ever seen. I’d even go as far as to say this clip is better than 50% of the superhero movies out there. Tonally, when Deadpool shows off the decapitated head, that’s stuff dreams are mad of. And frankly, Deadpool and Wolverine deserve better. Come on FOX, what up. WAKE UP!

Knowing this will never become realized make me weep.

‘As God Says’ Trailer: Takahi Miike’s Reunion With Blood!!

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 11:07

On November 15 Japan will be the first to see Takashi Miike’s Battle Royale-esque bloodbath of an adaption, As God Says (Kamisama no lu Tori), which now has a brief teaser that shows some of the “participants.”

Based on a popular comic, which also sounds also similar to Cube, As God Says is about teenagers forced to play a deadly game by unknown forces.

Variety originally reported that Sota Fukushi will star as an ordinary teen whose world is suddenly turned upside down one day, as he and his classmates find themselves caught up in a game whose penalty is death.

Miike described the story of the new pic as “They live, some heads roll, they run, blood sprays, they cry, they laugh and then they die – in other words, a fun movie.

Written by Muneyuki Kanshiro and drawn by Akeji Fujimura, “As God Says” was serialized in Kodansha Comic Magazine from March 2011 to November 2012 and has sold 1.5 million copies in paperback editions.

Bruce Campbell Battles Heaven and Hell In ‘Welcome to Purgatory’

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 10:49

James Buckley, pictured below, known for his role as Jay in the hugely successful British TV series “The Inbetweeners,” and Bruce Campbell, pictured above, known for his roles in many cult horror films including The Evil Dead, have both joined the cast of upcoming fantasy motion picture Welcome to Purgatory, Cupsogue Pictures tells Bloody Disgusting.

Buckley will play “Luke”, a petty thief who doesn’t have much luck, even in the Afterlife. Along with his partner-in-crime, Charlie (Stephen Marcus), they try to make the best of every bad situation in Purgatory, but with little success.

Campbell, who often works with Sam Raimi, Eli Roth and Welcome to Purgatory‘s own executive producer Scott Spiegel, is known for appearing in over 100 movies, many of which have become cult classics, making Campbell himself a cult icon after starring in such films as Army of Darkness, The Evil Dead, Spider-Man and Bubba Ho-Tep.

Welcome to Purgatory also stars Jillian Murray (Wild Things: Foursome, Bad Ass), Nathan Jones (Troy, Mad Max: Fury Road), Jack O’Halloran (Superman, King Kong), and Stephen Marcus (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Quills), and will be directed by British director Gene Fallaize.

“Welcome to Purgatory follows three new arrivals – Willis, Taylor and Danni – as they navigate this fresh vision of the Afterlife, helped along the way by Guardian Paul. The gates of Heaven & Hell have been broken and the Afterlife is in ruins. The new arrivals must find a way to put things right to prevent an eternal battle between good and evil.

Tony Cook and Gene Fallaize are producing the picture for Cupsogue Pictures, which was written by Marcus Ako & Tony Cook. Filming is due to commence on Welcome to Purgatory at Pinewood Studios, ahead of a theatrical release in 2015.

Will Bill Survive the Final Season of “True Blood”? (Trailer) #SDCC

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 10:32

HBO gave Comic-Con fans a look ahead at the final episodes of the concluding season of “True Blood”, which boats one major question: will Bill Compton survive in the end?

The trailer is about 30-seconds of story build and there rest is a montage of revealing footage.

In addition, those in attendance at the Con included exec producer Brian Buckner and co-stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Nelsan Ellis, Rutina Wesley, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Deborah Ann Woll, Carrie Preston, Chris Bauer, Anna Camp, and Nathan Parsons.

Here are some goodies out of the SDCC, reported by Debi Moore:

This season had to be about Bill and Sookie,” said Buckner. “It’s not going to be exactly what you think it is, but this show started out and worked because of the chemistry they shared… I certainly felt that we had to come back to Bill and Sookie; how we’re coming back to them, we’re not telling you.

As for what’s ahead in the upcoming episodes, he teased, “It’s not done changing. It’s not gonna slow down any; there’s just a bit more focus on romance… We put last season’s issue to rest early on purpose. We know you love these characters so we landed them in a place where we hope you guys will be okay not with getting them anymore.

It sounds like we’ll be more than okay with where Camp’s Sarah Newlin ends up. She told the crowd she has a big part to play in the final arc, adding, “I think I get what I deserve.” Buckner concurred, “I had to explain it to her boyfriend when he saw the punishment on set: ‘No, she deserves this!’” Yikes! Sounds like payback’s a bitch for Sarah!

For those who felt robbed of a chance to say goodbye to Tara, Buckner promised, “You haven’t seen the last of Rutina yet.

Trammell weighed in on Sam’s outcome, “Sam’s story has been about family for the past few years… [Nicole] has a very objective view of this town and how insane it is. We’ll see how committed I am to her and how committed she is to staying.

Lastly, Preston’s Arlene looks to finally be on track for some happiness as she embarks on a relationship with vampire Keith. “I don’t think you introduce a hot vampire on ‘True Blood’ without doing something with him… I feel like this season I got the real ‘True Blood’ experience, I got a vampire exploding in my crotch… [and] there’s something coming up with Arlene and Keith that’s unlike anything I’ve had to do on camera before.” Oh my!

“The Walking Dead’s’ Norman Reedus In ‘Air’ (Trailer) #SDCC

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 10:25

It was announced by THR back in February that “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman is producing Air, a sci fi thriller to which Norman Reedus, pictured, one of the breakout actors on “Walking Dead,” and Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Constantine) top line. We now have the trailer that premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, and it’s great because it sort of lends to the mystery of what the film is about.

Christian Cantamessa, who co-wrote and was lead designer for games such as “Red Dead Redemption” and “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas”, penned the script with Chris Pasetto and will make his feature directorial debut with the low-budget pic!

The story is set in an underground cryogenic facility after a nuclear fallout renders the atmosphere unbreathable. Air centers on its two custodial workers (Reedus, Hounsou), who take care of the cryogenically sleeping personnel that are to re-establish society, but they struggle to preserve their own sanity and lives while maintaining the extremely fragile environment of the last livable place on earth.

Tim Showalter (aka Strand Of Oaks) states:

I was a bit hesitant to tread down the well worn path of vampires when approaching this video.

‘Ghost’ Soundtrack Getting The Vinyl Reissue Treatment

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 09:00

While the supernatural romance film Ghost may not be a horror film, it still has some horror elements and some twisted scenes. After all, it’s about a ghost who basically haunts the sh*t out of his girlfriend (ex-girlfriend?) because he’s not willing to move on just yet. And remember the scene where Carl dies and is dragged into Hell? If not, head below because I’ve got that clip ready just for you.

However, another great aspect of the film is the score, which was composed by Maurice Jarre, whose credits include Eyes Without A Face and Jacob’s Ladder. And now that score will be coming out September 15th on a vinyl reissue, courtesy of Milan Records.

You can pre-order a copy through New On Vinyl and through other online retailers.

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Trailer Brings On the Rebellion!

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 07:35

The games are officially over, and war has begun in the first official trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which initially premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Now online for the first time, we can see that the movie assembles the rebellion, and brings war to President Coriolanus Snow as he continues to try and keep the people in a state of slavery. It’s very Star Wars-y.

Tin theaters this November, “he worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage.

[TV Review] “The Strain” Episode 1.03, ‘Gone Smooth’

Sun, 07/27/2014 - 23:45

“Gone Smooth” has one of the best cold opens I’ve ever witnessed. We’re given the intimate details of how Herr Eichorst puts himself together accompanied by a piece of classical music that makes everything feel elegant. The old Nazi bastard needs a lot of work and the cinematography lingers on closeups and uses a soft focus until it reveals its full hand in a horrifying fashion.

The CDC is now an interested observer in the whole affair. The military has taken the surviving passengers and Jim begins to lose his shit. Sean Astin gives his best performance yet, but he’s still a patsy who’s getting pushed around in almost every scene.

This episode belongs to the survivors from the plane. Who we watch as the virus starts to take greater hold on their bodies. The physical transformation is happening at an alarming rate, and thanks to the cold open we know what to expect, but the transition isn’t pleasant.

The pest control services desk is bombarded with calls. Vasily gets a weeks worth of extermination requests in one day but despite having a list of places to go, he’s got to see some asshole stock broker who comes first. The story again serves to show why Vasily will be the best man on the ground as this outbreak really kicks into high gear, but moreover it shows that he’s the only one close to actually figuring out what’s going on.

The CDC only spend a few moments wondering why an entire morgue of bodies disappear before going back to see their favorite airline pilot. He’s got those nasty worms in him, and Captain Redford isn’t going to make it. Ephraim gives him false hope, showing that he’s either compassionate or an asshole.

Jim’s whole struggle feels way too convenient to be believable. His struggle is a classic storytelling device to show a man torn between his good nature and deceiving his work to help the woman he loves most. I just don’t buy it and it feels forced. Hopefully he gets a swift and painful death.

Abraham Setrakian gets a little more screen time this week and we watch as he plays a feeble minded man who is capable of so much more. David Bradley gives a great performance with his bold confidence and foreboding nature. He’s just too busy selling doom to those who won’t listen. He sounds slightly insane but we know he’s the only one who’s actually got the hang on what’s going on.

I wish I could care about Eph’s family troubles but we don’t know enough about his relationships other than the fact their broken. Child actors are such a horrible plight in television, they never feel like real characters and every line of dialogue feels melodramatic which isn’t helped by the somber music in the background. All the dialogue here is groan worthy and it’s the worst part of the show so far.

Right about the halfway point this week is where I can pinpoint a distinct change in tone for the show. Eph’s family struggle is behind him. Abraham is done sowing doom, and the survivors really start to fall apart. Everyone starts poking a little too much and the true nature of virus starts to rear its ugly head. It’s not particularly terrifying just yet, but builds to an incredible last ten minutes as everything converges into a point of no return.

The coverup of the airline is cemented. The survivors transformations are grisly, and dizzying. Which leads into a final scene where Jim stupidly approaches a full blown vampire Captain Redford. It leads to a great demonstration of the Vampire’s physiology and power in the series that people have been waiting for and gives way to a perfect final shot that gives us the most terrifying visual of the series thus far: Corey Stoll’s insanely tussled hair piece.

Stray Thoughts:

-       The dick falling off – gah, really got to me. Every man’s worst nightmare.

-       Wanted the little girl vampire to jump out, but the scene in her house was good enough.

-       Vasily is still the best story here by far.

-       I still hate Nora. Is it possible her acting got even more wooden this week?

What did you think of “Gone Smooth?”

Watch ‘The Walking Dead’ Composer Bear McCreary Score ‘Constantine’

Sun, 07/27/2014 - 14:21

There’s a pretty great video below that shows composer Bear McCreary in the studio conducting an orchestra with footage spliced in of the upcoming TV series Constantine, all overlain with the theme of the show. The music has a decidedly Victorian twist – thanks to the harpsichord-esque twang – but is completely modernized with deep bass lines and almost electronic stylings. From the footage shown, it looks like McCreary nailed it with this theme, fully capturing the visual style of the show. Check it out below!

Constantine premieres October 24th at 10/9c on NBC.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Comic-Con Footage Revealed! #SDCC

Sun, 07/27/2014 - 14:11

“2015 belongs to the Mad!”

The first full trailer for 2015′s Mad Max: Fury Road has been released and it looks insane! Complete with Frankenstein-ed vehicles, destructive car chases, intense violence, and nasty, nightmarish characters, I have a feeling that the fourth entry into the Mad Max series is going to be nothing short of a pure adrenalized thrill ride! Watch the trailer below!

Directed by George Miller, the creator of the original trilogy, Fury Road stars Tom Hardy (Inception) and Charlize Theron (The Devil’s Advocate).

Who Are Horror’s Most Badass Villains?

Sun, 07/27/2014 - 14:00

Horror isn’t just full of badass survivors, people who will do anything to make it through a violent, terrifying situation. Sometimes the most interesting and exciting character is the villain, the person who is causing all that chaos in the first place! So what better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon than figuring out who might be the most badass amongst them?

Now, I could go with some pretty obvious choices, such as Jason or Freddy, but what fun would that be? Instead, I decided to go with some villains that might not get as much attention. Check out a few of my choices below and and then let me know some of yours!

Trick R Treat – Sam

Y’know why I love this little pumpkin-headed terror? Because he’s all about Halloween. You abide by the rules of one of the greatest holidays ever and you’re fine. But the second you break even a single one, you’re going to die in one of the most horrific ways imaginable. Plus, he gets creative with his kills. Maybe some dismemberment, maybe stabbing someone with a broken lollipop, maybe summon the ghosts of murdered children… It’s all gravy for him!

‘Doom II’ Monster Models Make Good Target Practice

Sun, 07/27/2014 - 12:00

I didn’t play either of the first two Doom games until long after their release, but when I did it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the series. There’s something about mowing down hordes of demons and zombies with badass, over-the-top weaponry that appeals to me. I’m sure you understand. I also enjoy getting behind-the-scenes looks at some of my favorite games, seeing how they’re made. It’s one of the reasons why I am in love with art books.

Some Doom II monster models were recently posted on Reddit, and they’re all very cool. I’m especially digging the Arachnotron.

If you really need to get that Doom fix, I suggest you check out the Brutal Doom mod that updates the first two Doom games with modern shooter mechanics and an extra coat of gore. The mod will see a new update soon that will up the brutal factor from 10 to 12, with roughly 200% more giblets and severed limbs.
