Horror icon Paul Naschy – who has portrayed the Wolfman, Frankenstein’s Monster, Count Dracula, the Hunchback and even the Mummy – has been resurrected and turned to Wax in Víctor Matellano’s first feature film.
“Wax tells the story of a young journalist employed to spend a night at Barcelona’s Wax Museum, where paranormal activities are supposed to be taking place. He must record everything happening there. In the museum there are different wax figures including Dr. Knox one, a sadist cannibal surgeon who loves dressing up as Vincent Price in House of Wax. Soon, the journalist will start feeling he is not alone….”
Jack Taylor, Geraldine Chaplin and Jimmy Shaw also star.
Naschy was brought back to life using his real voice (taken from old theatrical recordings), which comes from an animatronic wax figure.
Colin Arthur created all of the effects by hands, which are 80′s inspired.
Check out some pretty fantastic stills and a trailer.
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment quietly released Joy Ride 3: Road Kill today on Digital HD, a few weeks before its June 17 Blu-ray and DVD date.
The new sequel finds director Declan O’Brien (Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines) in the driver’s seat for another deadly detour. Our review is embargoed until next Monday. Take that information as you will.
In the third film, “The nightmare begins when a group of young street racers take a desolate shortcut on their way to the Road Rally 1000. But a chance encounter with Rusty soon turns deadly as he stalks, taunts, and tortures his next victims with deranged delight. It’s a full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal chill ride packed with killer twists and turns!“
Starring Ken Kirzinger (Freddy vs. Jason) as the infamous Rusty Nail, the Joy Ride 3: Road Kill Blu-ray and DVD is loaded with extra features including a variety of deleted scenes, featurettes, behind-the-scenes content, and a gruesome unrated version of the film. They include: Pre-Vis Sequences, Road Rage: The Blood, Sweat and Gears of Joy Ride 3, Riding Shotgun with Declan: Director’s DIE-aries, Finding Large Marge and Audio Commentary.
Video game creator Edmund McMillen has posted another new song from the upcoming roguelike dungeon crawler The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth. Below you can hear the new “caves” music “Sodden Hollow”, which is composed by Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans (aka Ridiculon). It’s an eerie, airy track with lots of space and breath.
Give it a listen below.
We don’t normally cover a lot of hip hop on Bloody-Disgusting but when this premiere came upon us we just knew that it was a perfect fit! In this exclusive “Sick Man” music video premiere from Detroit group Twiztid you’ll see horror favorites Sid Haig (House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects) and Kane Hodder (Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood, Hatchet) in a video filled with blood, gore, and torture. And if you’re into it, then prepare yourself as this video is just the beginning! Get on down below to check out these icons in action!
Well, that was bizarre timing. I should have consulted the Ouija before assuming one of the three undisclosed Universal horror movies was one based on the board game.
This time, the spirits tell Bloody Disgusting that Ouija will open this October 24, 2014 via Universal.
Here’s the first reveal of the plot crunch, too: “In Ouija, a group of friends must confront their most terrifying fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board.”
“Bates Motel” and The Quiet Ones‘ Olivia Cooke stars alongside Douglas Smith and Bianca Santos.
Stiles White directs the supernatural thriller that is produced by Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller (The Purge, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th) alongside Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, Insidious series, The Purge), Bennett Schneir (Battleship) and Hasbro.
EDM megastar Deadmau5 (aka Joel Zimmerman) will be releasing his new album While (1<2) on June 17th, which will feature 25 tracks. Earlier today, he released a stream of “Infra Turbo Pigcart Racer” on Rolling Stone, which you can hear below.
The 9-minute plus track starts slowly, evoking an eerie 80′s sci-fi cinematic experience, building to an awesome modern dubstep-esque electronic opus that is super catchy and entertaining. I can hear elements of Tangerine Dream and Vangelis as well as hints of The Hitcher.
There’s nothing more exciting than knowing a studio is down with the horror.
Universal Pictures is locking in three slots over the next few years dedicated to horror films produced by Blumhouse Productions. Presumably, they are all Purge sequels. I kid.
Joking aside, one of the films is not probably Ouija, as that was just dated for this October 24. Another could be Curve, starring Julianne Hough, or the Kevin Greutert-directed Visions. Then there’s Mercy, The Veil and even Incarnate. Jesus.
The aforementioned dates are as follows: September 25, 2015, January 8, 2016 and October 21, 2016.
Don’t expect any of these dates to be from either the Insidious or Paranormal Activity franchises as Universal does NOT own the rights.
Let’s go over the rules, shall we?
What happens when you say “Beetlejuice” three times?
The cast of NBC’s “Community” found out in an astounding easter egg that was set up over the course of three seasons.
Watch what happens when the cast says “Beetlejuice” for a third time, as allegedly discovered* by this imgur user. This is seriously one of the best payoffs of all time (watch the background)!
*I’m aware this is pretty old, and although I’m unsure of the source, it’s still pretty hilarious.
Deadline reports that “True Blood’s” Kevin Alejandro, pictured right, is set as a regular opposite Mark Pellegrino in Carlton Cuse’s 10-episode A&E drama series “The Returned.”
Also co-starring in the project, an adaptation of the acclaimed French series, are Sophie Lowe and Mat Vairo.
Keith Gordon (“Dexter”) will direct.
“ ‘The Returned’ focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences.”
Alejandro will play the town’s authoritative but accessible sheriff Tommy Moran. Lowe plays Lena, one of Jack’s (Pellegrino) two daughters. Vairo plays one of the returned, Simon, a musician who comes back 10 years after his death.
NBC announced today an October 24 premiere for “Constantine,” the DC Comics/Warner Bros. TV adaptation starring Matt Ryan as the chain-smokin’ title character.
They also recently released this 3-minute long promo trailer for the fantasy vehicle “about occult master and demon hunter John Constantine, who is tasked with defending humanity from the forces of evil.”
I was impressed with the trailer as it features some awesomely creepy footage, and it’s got a clear arc and hook.
Harold Perrineau Jr., Lucy Griffiths and Charles Halford co-star. Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer exec produce.
The project is based on the “Hellblazer” comic book series. It has already been adapted into the 2005 feature film starring Keanu Reeves.
“Based on the wildly popular DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.”
“If you find yourself in a scary movie, stick close to everyone. The moment you split up, you’re hacked up.”
Slacktory uploaded this hilarious gem of a supercut to their YouTUbe channel in which they pull footage of characters saying “I’ll check it out,” a no-no in the horror world.
The below video was edited by Alex Moschina. You’ll find a massive reference list at the above link.
This Reddit user shared our first look at Justin Long on the set of Kevin Smith’s upcoming horror film, Tusk, about a man (Long) who is surgically turned into a walrus by a mysterious seafarer (Michael Parks).
Check out this nasty image that shows Long stitched together into one nasty lump of flesh and covered in blood. Blech. I’m in.
The pic, inspired by The Human Centipede, also stars Haley Joel Osment and Genesis Rodriguez. It was acquired by A24 for release later this year.
Update: the source of the image is none other than Kevin Smith!
Those of you who haven’t seen the incredible Japanese zombie flick Wild Zero need to do so STAT. Those who have, well, they know just how badass Guitar Wolf is.
Now on Kickstarter is a project called Fonotune, which is nearly completed and seeking finishing funds.
Directed by German filmmaker Fabian Huebner (avant*garde and Visiting Uwe), Fonotune blends the cinema of Japan with a comic book and modern graphic design aesthetic to produce a visually striking electric fairytale reminiscent of Daft Punk’s Electroma and George Lucas’ THX-1138.
“Set during a single strange day in an undefined time and place, Fonotune follows the drifter Mono (Huebner), teenage street hooker Stereo (Yamashita Yuho), and lo-fi cowboy Analog (Watanabe Kazushi) on an epic odyssey through an apocalyptic urban landscape to deliver some mysterious cassettes to the enigmatic rocker Blitz (Guitar Wolf Seiji).”
With photography in Japan and Berlin already completed, Fonotune expects to wrap production in summer 2014, with a release in early 2015.
Last August MGM acquired rights to make a feature out of “Abe,” a short film by British writer/director/VFX artist Rob McLellan.
McLellan is to write and direct the feature about a robot serial killer, only now The Strangers‘s Bryan Bertino is doing a rewrite, says Deadline.
Kevin Misher and Steve Tzirlin produce.
We’ve actually embedded the insanely disturbing short below, which is brilliant in the idea that a serial killer has no soul – much like a robot…
Inspired by actual events, the thriller The Quiet Ones (read our review) is coming to Blu-ray, DVD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View on August 19 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
The eerie supernatural story will be available two weeks earlier on Digital HD August 5. The film stars Jared Harris (TV’s “Mad Men”), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Erin Richards (Open Grave), Rory Fleck-Byrne (Vampire Academy) and Olivia Cooke (TV’s “Bates Motel”).
When a crazed university professor (Harris) and his team of students set out to cure a disturbed patient, the unthinkable happens. Trusting in their leader and his motives, Brian (Claflin) and his fellow students find themselves far from help…and all too close to a sinister force they never suspected.
The Quiet Ones Blu-ray exclusive material includes the “Welcome to the Experiment: Making The Quiet Ones” featurette that takes viewers behind-the-scenes of the unforgettable thriller as well as the “Manifesting Evil: Visual Effects” featurette. The Blu-ray and DVD both include audio commentary with director John Pogue and producer Tobin Armbrust, deleted scenes and a gag reel.
Ben Ketai’s Beneath, which premiering at the Los Angeles Screamfest Horror Film Festival last October, will be arriving on VOD June 27 from IFC Midnight.
We now have the official trailer for the pic starring Jeff Fahey, Kelly Noonan, Joey Kern, Brent Briscoe, Mark L Young and Eric Etebari.
Heading deep underground, “A crew of coal miners becomes trapped 600 feet below ground after a disastrous collapse. As the air grows more toxic and time runs out, they slowly descend into madness and begin to turn on one another.“
Here’s yet another clip from the Sundance thriller Cold In July, directed by Stake Land and We Are What We Are‘s Jim Mickle.
Opening May 23, here’s a second clip from the pic that’s to feature scene-stealing performances from Sam Shepard and Don Johnson as a pair of Texan badasses.
Based on the novel by Joe R. Lansdale, “On a hot Texas summer night in 1989, family man Richard Dane (Hall) awakens to the sound of a burglar breaking into his home. In a panic, he shoots the intruder dead—but this nightmare is only just beginning. Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Dane soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when the burglar’s ex-con father, Ben (Sam Shepard), rolls into town; hell-bent on revenge. However, not all is as it seems. Misled by the cops and desperate for answers, Richard embarks on an increasingly berserk, bloodstained quest to discover what really happened that night. The plot twists pile up faster than the body count in this blistering mystery of vengeance and vice.“
Here’s one that’s a little different than what we normally post. Akron, OH rock band Survivor Girl has released an EP entitled Gets Out Alive that tackles the topic of what killers are thinking when it comes to their victims who got away, the eponymous “Survivor Girl”.
The EP description reads:
Killers in horror movies are so misunderstood. They just want to spend some alone time with the objects of their affections. Imagine Norman Bates fronting a rock & roll band in the 1950s.

Okay, so, I still have no idea what’s going on in CBS’ forthcoming sci-fi thriller “Extant,” premiering July 9.
From what I could gather, the series is about an evil android boy. At least that’s what I thought.
This new spot just hit, focusing on Halle Berry’s 13-month solo mission. It implies that she’s been impregnated with an alien child and brought it back to Earth. The question I have is as to if this child is the same as the seemingly android one, or if that’s the central focus of conflict? I’m highly intrigued by all of this and can’t wait to see more.
“ ‘Extant’ is a mystery thriller about a female astronaut, Molly Woods (Berry), trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. Her experiences lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.”
A viral campaign has launched for an unknown film that’s focus is on a new street drug called “Mech”.
Their new television PSA highlights an addict who faced mech addiction and implores viewers to share their stories with DontDoMech.com because, well, you are not alone.
A clue into the film’s story comes with their reported “Australian case”, which sounds mortifying.
We received more information on the reported mech case in Melbourne. On May 30th at 3:47am, a male, mid 20′s arrived into the Emergency ward delirious and complaining of severe stomach pains. When medical staff tried to treat him, he went into a fit of rage destroying expensive medical equipment. While trying to subdue him, four staff were seriously injured. Police on duty at Royal Melbourne Hospital were called to the scene. Bath salts and a speed overdose were suspected, but autopsy has confirmed Mech was present in his system. A jagged metallic structure was excised from his abdomen, the size of a softball. Doctors are still trying to determine what the metallic structure is made of.
Witnesses say the man seemed “possessed” and was speaking incoherently. The scene was described as “gruesome”. The victims body was said to be covered in open lesions. All four medical staff remain in stable but serious condition.
The victims family was notified early Friday morning. They wish their son remain anonymous.
This violent incident ended in tragedy, not unlike previous reports on our soil.
Clearly this looks sci-fi, but with horror elements. Go comb through the site and see what else you discover.
