WVM “Empire” Song Premiere (Exclusive)

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 11:00

Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with LA-based electronic artist WVM to bring you the exclusive song premiere of “Empire”, which you can hear below. The track, which was mixed by Sean Beavan (Marilyn Manson, No Doubt, Slayer), is a mix of hypnotic NIN-esque synths and industrial stylings a lá Combichrist with a healthy dosage of John Carpenter thrown into the mix.

WVM states:

“Empire” and “Pale Horse” were made using analog synths and drum machines. I was heavily inspired by the synth music of the 80s but the songs are not rooted in any era as they sound like they could come from the past, present or future.

“Empire” comes from WVM’s upcoming album Waves Of Nothing, which can be pre-ordered here.

[Comic Book Review] “The Names” # 2 Is Infectious As Hell

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:56

‘The Names,’ billed as “The Wolf of Wall Street meets Kill Bill,” is a radical thriller that’s both ruthlessly impassioned and viciously ruckus. It’s also cliffhanger city. The last page doesn’t come close to alleviating the built-up tension from 22-pages of sizzling mystery and bloody action…it only intensifies it. The juxtaposition of the widowed Katya and her stepson Philip really shines in issue two, adding the depth of a character study into the fast-paced, gruesome mixture.

WRITTEN BY: Peter Milligan

Issue two takes us international as Katya begins the hunt for clues that her late husband, Walker, sent her premortem (only to be useful postmortem). Don’t you worry, the international bashing of a man’s skull until he sings like a canary looks a lot like it does in America. And as with last issue’s beat-down, Katya loses her suspect—right before the critical information is revealed—to some kind of mysterious stroke that appears to be manufactured by The Names to silence the squeals of desperate men. But it’s Philip who puts this together because… it takes two (in this case) to make a thing go right. While Katya is the muscle, the fight, and the pure, unadulterated revenge, Philip is the brains; the Beautiful Mind, if you will. But together they make a deadly intelligent team. And although they dislike each other, on a level not quite understandable to the reader just yet, they share a deep love for Walker and will both cross any line to avenge his death.

Meanwhile, The Surgeon is causing terror of his own accord. He’s reminiscent of The Joker on a high dosage of PCP. He’s now got the cops under his scalpel and therefore anything that comes of their investigation is compromised. With the power of The Names behind him, his razor sharp scalpel, and his psychopathic nature, not a whole lot can stand in his way. Basically he’s an insanely powerful loose cannon and those are terrifying…truly, the scariest type of villain. Not to mention it’s beginning to look like his agenda might split from that of The Names, and then he’s not a loose cannon anymore but a D-40 shooting through the air straight for Katya and Philip. While The Names seem sure that Katya won’t become a problem, The Surgeon sees the situation for what it is and is poised to act.

‘The Names’ is insanely fast-paced, infectious as hell, and a shit ton of entertainment. The dynamics between the characters are incredible, and the only thing that rivals the perfect mystery that’s been set up to slowly unfold is the fire blazing inside Katya. As she follows Walker’s scavenger hunt for clues, she kills who needs to be killed and doesn’t look back. My personal favorite part of the series is the tenuous relationship between Katya and Philip. It’s either going to blossom into something kickass or implode in a mess of batshit futility. This comic is a keeper. It’s intelligent, highly stylized crime fiction with a deadly sexy broad and dangerous curves ahead.

[Comic Book Review] “Cutter” #1 Is A Solid Start To A Slasher

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:56

‘Cutter’ #1 is a solid start to something that could be incredibly unique or could look like an unfortunate b-movie supernatural horror. When a deadly, dark secret comes back to haunt a grown-up group of old high school pals, shit gets real and people start getting cut. Like…by giant hedge shears. The whole “past sins coming back to haunt you by picking you and your friends off one-by-one” is a familiar horror trope made popular by…well a ton of things. Agatha Christie, for one. But for the purpose of this article and all the teen slasher references I want to make, let’s go with ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer.’ This will either be fantastic, or it’s possible we’ll end up with Jennifer Love Hewitt screaming into the sky, “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, HUH?”

 

WRITTEN BY: Seamus Kevin Fahey / Robert Napton

ART BY: Christian Dibari

PUBLISHER: Image Comics / Top Cow

RELEASE DATE: October 1st, 2014

PRICE: $3.99

Reviewed By Bree Odgen

‘Cutter’ starts off with a bang, or a slash, rather, so gruesome I felt like I could actually hear the sound of shears sinking into flesh. It’s a fantastic cold open that sets up the story perfectly. Someone or (more intriguingly) something is holding a grudge and she’s going to murder away her rage. Cut to: Jeremy and his pregnant wife, and the happy, normal life he’ll probably never get to live. Because his old high school friends are being hacked to bits and not only does it appear that he’s a suspect, he also seems to be a target.

As Jeremy puts the pieces together, rather quickly I might add, he starts to warn the rest of his old high school crew that their past may literally be coming back to haunt them. Through randomly placed, sparse and quick teasing panels, we see a girl named Emily Higgins, a girl clearly in pain and distress, a girl we are led to believe was tortured (definitely emotionally, possibly physically) by Jeremy and Co. back in the day. But because no one believes Jeremy, these jackasses are gong to keep dying.

It feels very much like I’m writing a synopsis for the next Wes Craven film, which is why I’ll say it again, this could be fantastic or it could be a bit cliché and trope-y. I mean we’ve even got the mean sheriff buddy who believes no one until he randomly decides to believe everyone. You know the type.

Regardless of its ubiquitous nature, ‘Cutter’ is rocking some fantastic black and white art by one of my favorite horror artists, Christian Dibari. Honestly, blood splatter never looked so good in black and white. And the mystery is written very well: the “what” and the “why” are delightfully enthralling. There’s nothing about this comic that makes me want to stay away, just nothing to prove itself mind blowing–not YET.

Perhaps the coolest aspect of ‘Cutter’ is the fact that it’s a 4-issue weekly miniseries that runs throughout October. A horror comic just for October, you say? That’s the kind of candy I like. There is some insane talent on this project (SEAMUS KEVIN FAHEY!!!) so I’m inclined to be excited over exasperated.

[Comic Book Review] “Dream Thief: Escape” #4 Is Worth Reading

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:56

Knife fights, sons out for revenge and shoots outs with possessed killers. That pretty much sums up “Dream Thief: Escape” #4. Things wrap up in the conclusion to the latest story for John Lincoln and his magical mask and family business.

 

WRITTEN BY: Jai Nitz

ART BY: Tadd Galusha

PUBLISHER: Dark Horse Comics

PRICE: $3.99

RELEASE: 1 October 2014

The flashbacks have almost caught up to the present day story to tie things together nicely. Writer Jai Nitz knew what he wanted to accomplish here with this storyline: a legacy. Legacy heroes / villains / anti-heroes are some brilliant creations to make. Think of how much more story potential that gives a character. Every major comic company has at least one or more in their stables. It’s always fun to see different versions of characters, new or old. In this case, Dream Thief is now known to be a family business. Business that gets passed down despite parents best wishes. It’s one of the most bizarre father-son buddy tales I’ve ever read. Make no mistake, this is worth reading.

Greg Smallwood, the original artist in the first mini-series, is now only providing covers which is a shame. Tadd Galusha took over artwork for the series last month and the tone of the story has completely shifted. Gone are the gorgeous paneling and bleeding over of art from page to page. Instead, the action is more straight forward and generic. It’s not bad, but it’s not as good as it used to be. Galusha’s faces look more comical than serious or varied than they did last issue.

As I said before, this book is still worth reading. It is by far one of the darkest family bonding experiences you’ve ever seen. This is not a family fishing trip but more like a murderous rundown for revenge. Still, father and son Lincoln manages to keep me intrigued enough to see where this Dream Thief will turn up next. The premise of this story demands some better art that is more moody than run-of-the-mill. I hope next time John Lincoln wakes up, we all see how gritty and great it can be.

‘We Gotta Get Out of This Place’ Takes a ‘Bad Turn Worse’

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:43

Starz Digital Media announced they will release Bad Turn Worse (formerly We Gotta Get Out of This Place), the directorial debut of Zeke and Simon Hawkins, in select theaters and on VOD on November 14th.

After a weekend of partying with stolen money, three Texas teens (Jeremy Allen White, Logan Huffman, and Mackenzie Davis) find themselves indebted to a sociopathic criminal named Giff (Mark Pellegrino in a breakout performance). To repay their debt, Giff forces the teens to steal from his boss, a money-laundering gangster named Big Red (William Devane). Things go from bad to worse when betrayal, distrust, and corruption complicate an already dangerous plan.

The film features a variety of young rising stars and familiar faces including Jeremy Allen White (Showtime’s “Shameless”, Afterschool), Mackenzie Davis (What If, AMC’S “Halt and Catch Fire”), Logan Huffman (Refuge, ABC’s “V”), Mark Pellegrino (The Big Lebowski, SyFy’s “Being Human”) and William Devane (The Dark Knight Rises, FOX’s “24” & “24: Live Another Day”). Bad Turn Worse was written by “Black List” screenwriter and pop culture T-shirt designer Dutch Southern. Justin Duprie and Brian Udovich produced for Rough & Tumble Films.

Bad Turn Worse premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival before it won the audience award at the 2013 AFI Fest.

The film will be released theatrically in the US and Canada day-and-date with its release across all major VOD outlets, including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Xbox Video and cable providers.

‘Summer of Blood’ Poster Shows Who’s a Total Dick…

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:39

Dark Sky Films will release remember the bloody summer with their October 17 VOD and theatrical release of the absolutely hilarious must-see hipster horror Summer of Blood (read our review).

Check out the film’s equally hilarious one-sheet to go with the theatrical trailer. Onur Tukel is mind-blowing in this hipster horror film that’s loaded with gut-busting laughs. If you enjoy horror comedy, definitely seek this out.

Writer/director Onur Tukel turns in a hilarious performance as the monumentally lazy, socially oblivious and commitment-shy Erik Sparrow, who is dumped by his career-woman girlfriend (Anna Margaret Hollyman, White Reindeer) when he rejects her rather charitable marriage proposal. Feeling lost, he turns to a disastrous string of online dates that successively eat away at his already-deteriorating confidence until a lanky vampire turns him into an undead ladykiller. Soon, Eric is prowling the streets of Brooklyn in search of anything to satisfy both his maniacal sex drive and his hunger for blood. A collision of absurd, self-deprecating wit and existential curiosity, Summer of Blood is a hilarious horror-comedy with a clever bite all its own.

Onur Tukel (Septien, Red Flag), Alex Karpovsky (Girls), Anna Margaret Hollyman (Gayby, White Reindeer), Dakota Goldhor (Thumbsucker), Dustin Guy Defa (Bad Fever), Keith Poulson (Hellaware, Listen Up Phillip) all star.

‘Seventh Son’ Poster Channels Classic Uwe Boll

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:10

Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures long delayed Seventh Son is finally set for release on February 6, 2015, as we previously released. A new one-sheet premiered and it’s sort of funny because it looks like something Uwe Boll would release back in the day (like In the Name of the King).

The action adventure stars Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Olivia Williams, Antje Traue, Djimon Hounsou and Julianne Moore. It is based on the book “The Spook’s Apprentice” (AKA “The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch”) by Joseph Delaney.

Directed by Sergei Bodrov, “In a time of enchantments when legends and magic collide, the sole remaining warrior of a mystical order (Oscar winner Jeff Bridges) travels to find a prophesized hero born with incredible powers, the last Seventh Son (Ben Barnes). Torn from his quiet life as a farmhand, the unlikely young hero embarks on a daring adventure with his battle-hardened mentor to vanquish a dark queen (Julianne Moore) and the army of supernatural assassins she has dispatched against their kingdom.

Andrew Lincoln’s Hilarious Interpretation of “The Walking Dead” (Featurette)

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 10:05

AMC released a new “The Walking Dead” featurette that has interviews with the cast and crew discussing their expectations for Season 5.

My favorite part of the video is where Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, interprets the series for us. Why is it so funny? Because it’s the most basic and generic way to explain “The Walking Dead” to someone. After five seasons, you’d think he’d have something more inspired to say.

I see it as a story that keeps moving forward,” explains Lincoln, who apparently has never seen anything, ever. “You start with these character in one place, and over time this world changes them.” Because, you know, in film and television, characters aren’t changed by their environment.

It’s hilarious when actors think they’re being profound and clearly aren’t. Love or hate the show, this shit is funny.

“The Walking Dead” premieres on Sunday, October 12 at 9:00pm ET/PT.

FEAR Brings ‘The Babadook’ (Trailer)

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 09:56

Don’t be afraid. Because if you are, he’ll come a knocking.

The Babadook will make you beleive, opening here in the States on November 28, and in the UK on October 24. In this new trailer, we learn that fear is the catalyst for the Dook!

Written and directed by Jennifer Kent, the film has terrified audiences since it premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival (read our review).

In it, “Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her ‘out of control’ 6-year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a sinister monster he believes is coming to kill them both.

When a disturbing storybook called ‘The Babadook’ turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that ‘The Babadook’ is the creature he’s been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control and as he becomes more unpredictable and violent, Amelia is genuinely frightened by her son’s behaviour.

But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.

Get Your Jason Voorhees Groove On With Videogram’s “Camp Blood”

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 09:00

Fans of Friday The 13th, have I got a treat for you! Courtesy of Videogram, we’re bring you the track “Camp Blood” which is, “…a sort of “nudge nudge, wink wink” to fellow horror fans and a mix of the disco theme of Part 3 and Michael Jackson‘s Thriller.”

The song is catchy, it’s total 80′s horror-synth, and it’s perfect for your Halloween party! You can watch a video of the song below, which uses footage from the Indonesian knockoff Srigala.

If you dug the song as much as I did, you can snag it for $1 off of Bandcamp.

‘Silence of the Sleep’ is Here to Kick Off October Right

Fri, 10/03/2014 - 00:12

The incredibly creepy 2D survival horror game Silence of the Sleep has finally arrived on Steam, making it the first new horror release of the month. I hate comparing such a unique game to something else, because this atmospheric gem of a game easily stands on its own, but it really does resemble what I imagine a 2D Silent Hill might be like.

Silence of the Sleep is impressive, and it also happens to be the work of one man, who handled everything from the animation, art, coding, music and marketing. I spent some time with its demo back in April; feel free to use it as a sampling of what this game has to offer.

Silence of the Sleep is available now on Steam for $16.99.

It’s “American Horror Story Against Humanity”!

This Imgur user imagined playing the widely popular Cards Against Humanity with scenes from FX’s “American Horror Story.”

What you see are 5 cards played that end with the birth of the Antichrist, and a sad, sad hand job.

Can you think of even better cards to play?!

Become a Monster in This New ‘Dying Light’ Trailer

Thu, 10/02/2014 - 19:36

Techland has dropped a new trailer for Dying Light, their open-world zombie survival game — a term I’ve been using to describe a lot of games lately — that focuses on the asymmetric multiplayer mode they’ve dubbed Be the Zombie. The mode pits a team of survivors against a player-controlled monster that’s basically an overpowered killing machine, because why not?

I feel like this is a mode I’ll try once or twice to see what it’s like when another player invades my game and subsequently kicks my ass, before disabling it. That’s if I get it at all, seeing as the mode is currently a preorder exclusive.

Dying Light hits PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on January 27, 2015.

‘State of Decay’ Dev Celebrates Another Sales Milestone

Thu, 10/02/2014 - 18:28

Undead Labs has announced their open-world zombie survival game State of Decay has passed another impressive milestone by selling over two million copies on Xbox 360 and Steam. The game was a runaway success, breaking sales records when it first hit XBLA last June, so this isn’t that surprising. It also happens to be a superb game that they’ve continued to support with numerous updates and two story expansions.

I’m sure this number will see a substantial increase when the State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition arrives on Xbox One with brand new content in early 2015.

Fire Isn’t a Particularly Effective Weapon in ‘Alien: Isolation’

Thu, 10/02/2014 - 17:59

I hope you’re ready to watch Amanda Ripley die another horrible death, because that’s exactly what we’re about to do. You know, of the paltry selection of weapons Ripley has to defend herself, I assumed the flamethrower would be useful in keeping away all those pesky androids and alien. I figured with that in hand, she’d have a chance at making it.

Unfortunately, it looks like many of the enemies in Alien: Isolation don’t only possess an impressive resilience to fire, but I think I heard the xenomorph laugh when Ripley makes a futile attempt at stopping it in its tracks with her flamethrower.

Alien: Isolation arrives on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 7.

Marilyn Burns: The First ‘Final Girl’

Thu, 10/02/2014 - 17:20

In honor of Texas Chainsaw Massacre celebrating its 40th birthday (yesterday), I wanted to share my thoughts on the lovely, dearly departed, Marilyn Burns who is criminally overlooked when it comes to “Final Girls”. Sally Hardesty and her friends set forth on that trip in Texas a full 5 years before Ripley survived Xenomorphs and before Laurie Strode escaped Michael Myers.

If there’s anything we know it’s that the making of Texas Chainsaw Massacre was virtually hell on Earth. Temperatures over 90 degrees, the putrid stench of actual rotting meat and often a very volatile set was anything but a glamours life for these actors. Literal blood and sweat created the perfect environment for Burns to craft herself into the perfect “Final Girl”.

Sally Hardesty and her friends are a rare exception in the “kids go on a trip to the boonies and get killed” trope. They are all pretty likable and well meaning kids. They aren’t just walking stereotypes waiting to be killed off in a gruesome fashion. Aside from Franklin being the most annoying character in cinematic history, we really connect with this group and Sally is the most commendable. If it were me I would have left Franklin’s ass high and dry five minutes into the movie but she does her best to help Franklin along the way.

But it isn’t a sweet smile and caring disposition that makes a bad as final girl. Burns was under a lot of stress during the making of this film and it shines through in her performance. You really feel her clamoring for her life against Leatherface and his deranged family, she doesn’t falter for even a second. Hell, she jumps through TWO windows to escape and one of them is on the second floor! I’ve actually turned “Marilyn Burns” into a verb.

For example: “Laurie better start Marilyn Burnsing that shit if she wants to get out of that house!”

And lastly, there is no denying Burns’ ability to knock any scream queen out of the park at the end of TCM. Here scream coupled with her crazy eyes is almost as disturbing as the family itself. All of her anguish and pain comes through in those final moments and if she gave this kind of performance in a Steven Spielberg historical drama she would be a shoe in for at least a nomination. Criminally overlooked, Sally Hardesty easily takes the crown for Queen of the Final Girls. We all miss her dearly but she gets to live on in one of the most shocking and disturbing horror films of all time.

[Review] ‘The Squad Fades’ In the Fog

Thu, 10/02/2014 - 16:13

Shout! Factory is known for giving new life to lost treasures in the genre with beautiful transfers and awesome special features. For that I am forever a loyal customer and I’m willing to give their independent movies a chance. I received The Squad in the mail and it sounded like a sort of Dog Soldiers and The Keep hybrid which sounded pretty badass to me. (Warning: Review could contain minor spoilers and major ones are noted within)

The Squad (aka El Paramo) centers around a military group of 9 guys sent to check out a base where another group is supposed to be located. Communication has been lost and the men are sent to find out what happened to them. Upon arrival the men discover everyone has seemingly disappeared except for one gnarled looking woman who has been walled up inside the camp. Surrounding her are numerous symbols to ward off evil including a chicken’s foot and a cross of salt on the ground. When the men pull her out they find she is bound by the hands. The unknown woman screeches when she sees the symbols around the room and the men quickly get rid of them. One of the men, Indio, is convinced the woman is a witch while the others think she is part of the enemy and this begins the whole rest of the plot.

When I said this movie sounded like Dog Soldiers and The Keep I wasn’t lying, it really sounded like a cool concept. After all we don’t see a lot of genuinely good witch movies anymore. But the thing that separates The Squad from a movie like Dog Soldiers is that it never pays off in the monster area. The rest of the movie shows the soldiers slowly (excruciatingly so) going mad and turning on each other but the movie goes out of its way to make it seem like it isn’t a witch at all and that it’s just paranoia.

So my question is this? Why get a truly creepy witch to be in the movie for all of 5 minutes and put so much emphasis on the symbolism only to completely disregard it later? And if it is a story just about paranoia then why (MAJOR SPOILER!!) show us the supposed witch again at the end if you already explained all the creepy happenings sans witchcraft?

It feels like this is two different movies and after a little research on IMDB I understand why. The Squad had 2 writers AND a script consultant. Unfortunately, this is just the result of too many ideas never coming to fruition. Ultimately, we get a really good looking movie visually that never goes anywhere or does anything new. Which is the real tragedy here because, as I said, a really good witch movie is something pretty rare these days. A movie about soldiers being paranoid and turning on each other? Not so much.

As for the Blu-ray itself, Shout! Factory always does a good job visually but for whatever reason I noticed a severe sync issue within the 5.1 sound option. I didn’t notice it for a while because the movie is in subtitles but there is a scene in which one of the soldiers throws open the door and causes a loud bang but the bang doesn’t come for a good 10 seconds or so. However, I found that in the audio settings you can change it to 2.1 and that completely fixes the sync issue. It could just be my copy but fair warning to those who seek this out.

The Squad does have potential and being director Jaime Osorio Marquez’s first feature I am willing to view this as a learning curve. Perhaps next time he should work with one writer and a better editor because I can see hope for him in the future. The movie has out since 2011 but this is, as far as I know, the first time it’s been on BD/DVD. Anyone else see it?
