The Woods is No Place for a 'Honeymoon' (Poster Debut)

Tue, 03/04/2014 - 16:18

Set to premiere this weekend at the SXSW Film Festival is Leigh Janiak’s Honeymoon, which now has a wicked teaser poster.

The pic stars Rose Leslie, Harry Treadaway, Ben Huber, and Hanna Brown.

Young newlyweds Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon where the promise of private romance awaits them. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods.

Honeymoon premieres at the Austin-based fest on Friday (March 7) at 11:45pm at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz.

'Cthulhudad' Takes Us To The Mountains Of Dadness

Tue, 03/04/2014 - 16:14

I haven’t played Octodad, but that’s only because I’ve been waiting for something a bit more Lovecraftian. In it, you play as an octopus who has disguised himself as a person by wearing people clothes and doing people things. Your goal is to not let the peoplefolk know you’re not entirely human.

I’m guessing Cthulhudad — totally not a real game, though it really should be — would take a similar approach, only with more ritual sacrifices, death, pain, and aguish — you know, all the things Cthulhu likely requires for nourishment.

[Random Cool] Mind-Blowing Custom 'Halloween' Dolls!

Tue, 03/04/2014 - 16:07

Bloody reader ‘Dan Polydoris’ got creative and designed his own custom vintage-style set of Mego figures based on John Carpenter’s Halloween!

[The Michael] Myers is just Captain Kirk with a white face and new hair,” he explains on his blog. “He’s wearing a ‘Planet of the Apes’ Astronaut outfit without the zipper. [Dr.] Loomis is just Boss Hogg with a goatee and a slight haircut (in the back). His trench coat is a modified Barbie trench made for 12″ figures.

I also made a Laurie figure (she’s pictured on the side of the box), but she ended up looking too shitty even for the internet to see,” he jokingly adds. “So, she’ll remain safely bound and gagged in the back of my closet.

Michael Myers construction:
Captain Kirk head
Type 2 body
Soldier Ape boots from Planet of the Apes
Astronaut suit from Planet of the Apes (zipper removed)
Modified scimitar from Azeem (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) for the knife
Brown, faux-fur from Joanne Fabric for the hairhttps://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/images/cleardot.gif

Dr. Loomis construction:
Boss Hogg head and body
Joker shoes
Modified Barbie Trenchcoat
Pants, shirt and gun from Doc Mego Repros

[Random Cool] Have 20 Terrifying Two-Sentence Stories

Tue, 03/04/2014 - 14:24

It’s amazing how a few words, when put in a particular order, can conjure up the most terrifying images in my head. If I read the right book or story before I think of heading to sleep, there goes my night. I’ll be up for hours, wide-eyed, twitching and jumping at the smallest creak in the floor. That’s what a good horror story can do to me.

That’s why I had to put together these two galleries of two-sentence stories that can easily burrow their way under your skin and proceed to rake their bony fingers up and down your spine. Read them below…….if you dare.

[Tribeca '13] 'Summer of Blood' Set to Relieve Stomach Pains!

Tue, 03/04/2014 - 13:00

The 2014 Tribeca Film Festival today announced the World Narrative and Documentary Competition film selections, along with selections for the out-of-competition Viewpoints section which highlights unique, personal stories and diverse filmmakers in international and American independent cinema. Forty seven of the 87 feature-length films were announced as part of the 13th edition of the Festival, which will take place from April 16 to April 27 at locations around New York City.

While we wait for the Midnight titles to be announced, the first genre film to play is Summer of Blood, directed and written by Onur Tukel.

Set to World Premiere, “Misanthropic and immature Eric faces a premature mid-life crisis after his girlfriend leaves him. With no career and even less charisma in bed, it seems like this loveable loser is beyond hope, until one fateful summer night when a vampire bites him in a Brooklyn alleyway. The next day, Eric finds his confidence invigorated and his stomach in excruciating pain that can only be cured by one thing…blood.

Onur Tukel directs and stars in this dark comedy about love, lust, and humanity.

Linkin Park Posts Clip Of New Song And, Dare I Say It, It Sounds Good?!

Tue, 03/04/2014 - 00:33

Electronic rock band Linkin Park has released a short in-studio video (probably filmed on a cellphone) that features a clip of new music. From the very short clip, it actually sounds pretty intense. It’s definitely heavier than the vast majority of songs the band has released over the last several years. Head on down to give it a listen.

In the clip, there is a brief moment where guitarist Brad Delson has a yellow pad in front of him that has the words “The Hunting Party” written on it. It also has the numbers “6 14″. It’s easy to speculate that “The Hunting Party” could be the name of the album. However June 14th is a hard sell on a release date as that falls on a Saturday and albums almost always are released on Tuesdays.

The band’s last studio release was 2012′s Living Things, which I was not a fan of. You can read my review here.

'Ju-on' ('The Grudge') Continues to Haunt Japan

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 22:04

Setting up a 15th anniversary celebration, the Ju-on virus continues to spread through Japan.

Ochiai Masayuki, who directed Infection, Hypnosis and the absolutely atrocious 2008 remake of Shutter, is set to pen and get behind the camera for Ju-on: Owari no Hajimari, or The Grudge: Beginning of the End, according to Eigapedia. The announcement was made at Tokyo’s Akagi Shrine.

An elementary school teacher named Yui visits the home of a boy named Toshio Saeki who’s been absent from school for a long period of time. When she arrives, she re-lives the horrific tragedy which occurred in the Saeki household 10 years earlier. A cardboard box left in a closet holds the key to revealing a long-hidden truth.

Nozomi Sasaki and Kai Kobayashi both star.

Filming begins tomorrow with a release date already slated for June 28.

Ju-on: Owari no Hajimari marks the seventh Japanese film, making it the 10th in the franchise (if you include the three U.S. The Grudge films).

Ju-on (OV) (2000)
Ju-on 2 (OV) (2000)

'Dishonored' Sequel Leaked, Reveal Coming At E3 2014

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 22:02

Forget Thief, the stealth genre may have a new king. Released last October by developer Arkane Studios, Dishonored was a brilliantly realized stealth action game that proved there’s still plenty of room for innovation in the genre. I wouldn’t have predicted a sequel reveal anytime soon, but that may very well be the case here. If this leaked off-screen photo of a slide from a behind closed doors presentation is real, an announcement may come as soon as E3. I’d also like to know what that “Darkness of Tyvia” bit means, because Google isn’t proving very helpful.

I called Dishonored “delicious” in my review of the game, saying it “mixes elements from some of the best games of the action and stealth genres while successfully bringing plenty of ingenious ideas of its own.” If you haven’t played it already, this is very much a game worth experiencing.

[BD Review] 'Odd Thomas' Should Have Been a TV Pilot

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 20:54

Sometimes the movie is better than the book. Sometimes it isn’t. Odd Thomas, based on the Dean Koontz novel, attempts to transfer a seemingly interesting story from page to screen. Written and directed by Stephen Sommer, starring Anton Yelchin (Charley from the Fright Night remake) and Willem Dafoe, the movie, unfortunately, has a few things working against it.

The main distracting element of Odd Thomas is the excessive use of voiceover. Normally, this will work fine for a first person novel (which it originally is). This also works in small amounts in film. Where Odd Thomas fails is that the film more or less could be followed without the excessive narration. Yes, the original work has this point of view, but translating that to film simply works against a developing plot. There is no time to pay attention to what is happening on the screen when Odd is constantly talking. It makes it feel like less of a film, and more of an extended TV pilot.

The best I could equate the TV feel of Odd Thomas to would be (the short-lived) Reaper meets the Amazon Zombieland pilot. Even with the simplicity of the Odd character – yes, that’s his real name – being a short order cook who sees dead people, who has a girlfriend named Stormy Llewellyn, and a police chief friend played by Willem Dafoe – it just doesn’t have the weight (with these few likeable (enough) characters to continue week-to-week; it can barely hold just over 90 minutes. Nevertheless, I felt as though the villainous plot was simply a first “big bad” to set up continuation of the basic premise presented. I kept waiting for it to end and we could pick up the story next week. Interestingly enough, Odd Thomas IS a series. There are multiple books about the character and his shenanigans, but I simply do not believe there is potential there for it to be a celebrated TV program.

Odd Thomas has incredibly fun effects, though. Odd sees a plethora of bodachs – “predators who feed on pain and portend mass destruction” (think a supped up version of Gravelings from Dead Like Me having babies with Harry Potter’s Dementors) throughout the movie. Personally, I found these to be effective – and I am usually not a fan of excessive CGI use. Along with good effects, the acting on part of all actors was great.

Though the movie deviates from the norm, what we are left with is an interesting story with good effects, and acting that sadly becomes progressively boring due overly long-winded and annoying voice overs. It’s a shame they didn’t just make a pilot.
