Wesley Snipes Confirmed For ‘Blade’ Return?

Sat, 08/30/2014 - 14:46

As we stated earlier in the month, we find it hard to believe that New Line Cinema would get behind a Blade sequel with franchise star Wesley Snipes. Although, over the past months, studios seems desperate to prove that they’re sensitive to both gender and race. It’s quite possible a new Marvel movie featuring Snipes is just what the doctor ordered.

According to the Daily News, Snipes is set to reprise his lead role in Blade, as a half-vampire, half-mortal man that becomes a protector of the mortal race, while slaying evil vampires.

The 1998 vampire thriller made more than $130 million and generated two sequels.

Sources close to Snipes tells the site the 52-year-old actor’s comeback after being released from prison in April 2013 (after serving two and a half years for tax evasion) is “looking good” and that he’ll make $3 million from this film, plus a cut of the profits.

Snipes can now be seen in Lionsgate’s The Expendables 3.

Twisted Music Video Of The Week Vol. 150: Korn “Thoughtless”

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 17:30

For this week’s edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week, we’re going back to 2002 to the height and glory days of nu-metal to spotlight Korn‘s “Thoughtless”, which comes from their 5th studio album Untouchables.

Directed by The Hughes Brothers (From Hell, The Book Of Eli) and starring Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), the video shows a teenage boy who endures bullying from his classmates, only to retaliate in what I think is a reverse Carrie. Instead of being the Prom King, he struts in last minute to douse everyone aside from him with putridity.

[Review] ‘As Above, So Below’ Is Goofy but Fun Spookhouse Fare

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 16:33

While the ad campaign for Universal’s latest found footage horror feature (poster art featuring an inverted Eiffel Tower beneath a mountain of skulls) grabbed my interest early on, I was curious to see As Above, So Below for one reason: the legendary Paris Catacombs, which figure prominently in the story. While this subterranean City of the Dead – containing the bones of several million people, most of them relocated from overcrowded churches, ossuaries and mausoleums in the late 18th century – has been the subject of many horror tales (including the so-so 2007 thriller Catacombs), it’s my understanding that this feature from filmmaking siblings John and Drew Dowdle is the first non-documentary production to be allowed access to the actual site. Real-life urban explorers should take note of that, as the Catacombs are among the world’s most popular macabre destinations… and if nothing else, As Above might even help seal the deal on some of those alt-tourism plans.

That said, there’s sadly very little of the real Catacombs on display in this film, since much of the action takes place in a secret labyrinth of passages that diverge from the real historic tunnels. Most of this domain is represented by specially-built sets, which to the filmmakers’ credit are actually very well designed; still, the sparing use of the actual location was my first disappointment. Second, there’s nothing much new under the ground as far as the plot is concerned. It involves the quest of maniacally driven Archaeology student Scarlett (Perdita Weeks) and her crew in search of the mythical Philosopher’s Stone – a well-known legend in the history of alchemy and mysticism (centuries before J.K. Rowling dragged it into pop culture via Harry Potter). Dragging along a reluctant ex-boyfriend (Ben Feldman) and a shady team of local urban explorers, Scarlett follows a series of cryptic clues from her notes and photos, leading the crew into an unmapped region deep beneath the streets of Paris. After a cave-in blocks their original escape route, the search for another way out reveals one set of creepy ancient inscriptions after another… and when they actually encounter the tired phrase “Abandon Hope Ye Who Enter Here” etched over a doorway to darkness, you can probably sort out what’s coming next.

Now, I’m sure a lot of you already hit a roadblock in my first paragraph upon reading the words “found footage,” and I can understand your misgivings… but I’m going to risk some incoming fire by stating that I myself enjoy many found footage and/or mockumentary horror projects – sometimes even against my better judgment. (I’ll be writing more directly on this topic in a future article, so start gathering ammo for the inevitable comment wars.) Fortunately, the Dowdle brothers manage for the most part to steer clear of the genre’s usual shortcomings – such as cameras shaking way too much for comfort or realism, or their operators continuing to film long after any sane person would drop the rig and run like hell (the team members all wear pin-cams with their headlamps). The tight POV approach here often helps add to the feeling of oppressive claustrophobia, as the characters are breathing down each other’s necks while the shadows tighten around them and the bone-covered floor literally crumbles beneath their feet. The narrow, damp stone passageways – often barely wide or high enough for a single person to squeeze through – call to mind some of the most effective moments from Neil Marshall’s The Descent, a horror classic to which the Dowdles owe a creative debt; in fact, one character’s claustrophobic panic attack is almost a direct lift from that film.

For all its shortcomings – obviously scripted dialogue, awkward omissions (no one thought to bring helmets or gloves?) and a self-endangering, monomaniacal protagonist who makes Indiana Jones seem like a pussy – As Above, So Below still accomplishes what I assume to be its main goal of being an elaborate spookhouse attraction (the kind Universal knows how to pull off by now), complete with creepy random figures jumping out at the right moments (one of those scares is particularly effective, despite the fact that you know it’s coming), and an immersive sound design that serves to disorient the audience and make them more vulnerable to the usual loud sonic stingers. If that’s what you expect to find, you’ll get your ticket’s worth on this ride. If you’re looking for a new twist on the found footage concept, you won’t find it here… and sadly, you won’t be swept up in the Gothic grandeur of the real Catacombs either, since they feature a lot less on screen than I’d hoped.

[Exclusive Preview] “The Squidder” #3

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 14:28

By this point we shouldn’t have to tell you that Ben Templesmith’s “The Squidder” is a once in a lifetime comic. It’s a bold mix of The Road Warrior and Cthulhu with everything in between serving as a love letter from Templesmith’s style. Our own Jorge Solis said issue two “…delivers an awesome ass-kicking action hero in the alien apocalypse. The surrealistic artwork will keep readers riveted with it’s striking images giving readers a dose of adrenaline that they will instantly crave more of.”

So we’re pretty psyched to offer an exclusive preview of issue 3, which hits shelves next week.

The Squidder #3 (of 4)

Ben Templesmith (w & a & c)

The Squidder lies broken and battered as the true enemy finally shows it’s face. Can it be killed when a world war couldn’t stop it before? New allies are found and weapons forged. Battle lines are drawn and loyalties tested as the Squidder deals with his past, his old demons and a small group of squiddly rebels who think they actually stand a chance. Also, finally, tentacles! Lots of them. Plus interesting places to put swords.

 FC • 32 pages • $3.99

[Comic Book Review] So Much Arguing in “Deep Gravity” #2

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 13:44

“Deep Gravity” #2 picks up with the explosion aboard Vanguard.  All the creatures have escape and the survivors are regrouping and trying to decide the best course of action. There is one page that takes place back on Poseidon but besides that the entire issue follows the hand full of people aboard Vanguard arguing, so much arguing.

WRITTEN BY: Gabriel Hardman, Corinna Bechko, Mike Richardson
ART BY: Fernando Baldo
PUBLISHER: Dark Horse
PRICE: $3.99
RELEASE: August 27, 2014

Reviewed By Epic Switzer

I gave the first issue of “Deep Gravity” a favorable review and expressed a lot of hope for the series.  Unfortunately it seems we’ve gone from “Avatar” to “Deep Blue Sea” in just one issue.  Gone are the imaginative creatures and environments from issue one that intrigued and delighted me.  They’ve been replaced with three people shouting at each other about hierarchy and insubordination.

The focus shift to the wrecked ship doesn’t just sully my interest, it cripples Fernando Baldo’s art.  Because we are stuck on the ship with the survivors, his panels are mostly restricted to gray debris with groups of people standing around.  In one chamber there is a big fire and Baldo’s use of panelling and detail gets to shine through, but for the most part this issue is particularly boring to look at.

This issue has some things going for it: it moves very quickly for one.  Even though most of the dialogue is redundant arguing, the crew is quick on their feet and manages to cover a lot of ground in this issue.  Secondly there is a cliffhanger that, while no unexpected, presents opportunity for some really interesting conflict.

I really liked the first issue, so I will definitely stick with it for the time being.  But the reason “Deep Blue Sea” worked as well as it did wasn’t the sharks, it was Samuel L. Jackson.  This book doesn’t have a Samuel L. Jackson, it doesn’t even have a LL Cool J.

[Comic Book Review] A War is Raging in “The Goon: Occasion of Revenge” #2

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 13:31

I have to thank the comic book gods (and my editor) for the sweet streak I have been on reading great books! “The Goon: Occasion of Revenge” #2 (aka The Goon #47) this week gives us another beautifully grimy rendered book of monsters, witch gangs, mobster violence, ghouls and dames. A war is raging on in this town and our big fisted galoot isn’t going to lose…easily.

 

WRITTEN BY: Eric Powell

ART BY: Eric Powell

PUBLISHER: Dark Horse Comics

PRICE: $3.50

RELEASE: 27 August 2014

Reviewed by Your Friendly Neighborhood Brady

This saga has been percolating long before this mini-series started. Enemies of enemies have become allies. You know that is never an easy thing to pull off well but creator Eric Powell has woven such compelling characters, motivations and designs that you simply cannot look away from the page. It’s so hard for me to separate the writing and the art for this story. It’s all meshing together so succinctly that it reads as a complete package unto itself.

Again, Powell’s subdued color palette sets a grubby noir tone for each of the storylines herein. Legend Tomb of Draculaartist Gene Colon must have been in Powell’s long box or bookshelf at some point in his life. It shows and it works so well here in this story. You can almost hear the grizzled voice-over narration as you read on through all the doomed souls congregating in this tale of settling of scores. Powell has obviously kept his characters connected enough from past adventures that all of this will come to a head no doubt in explosive abundance. Combine that with the new spirits haunting and gathering and you know something big is going to go down.

I can’t spoil anything because it’s just worth reading and enjoying. Love is found and love is haunting others. There are even poop jokes here so no one takes this too seriously. Powell’s story is sweet when it needs to be, warm and touching when it wants to be, and brutal and gruesome when it has to be. Pick up last issue if you haven’t and treat yourself to a double shot of The Goon this week.

‘Cub’ Trailer Looks Like Jason Voorhees’ Early Years!!

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 11:10

I was already pumped to see Jonas Govaerts’ Cub, which is World Premiering at the Midnight Madness portion of the Toronto International Film Festival (from Sep. 4-14).

The Playlist has turned that excitement into obsession with the trailer debut that pits a group of scouts against a feral child. Watch the trailer all I could think was that Cub looks like a Friday the 13th prequel that takes place between the first film and its sequel. Cub honestly looks like the younger years of one Jason Voorhees. This trailer is going to blow you away. Scouts honor.

“Cub is a horror adventure in which a young imaginative twelve-year-old boy named Sam heads off to camp with his Cub Scouts pack, leaders Peter and Chris and quartermaster Yasmin. Once they enter the woods, Sam quickly feels something is not quite right. He soon stumbles upon a mysterious tree house and meets a shifty, masked feral-looking child. When Sam tries to warn his leaders, they ignore him: the boy often tells tall tales and Sam’s mysterious past which he refuses to talk about makes his leader Peter mistrust him. As Sam gets more and more isolated from the other scouts, he becomes convinced a terrible fate awaits them: the Feral Child, it turns out, is the helper of the Poacher, an evil psychopath, who has riddled the forest with ingenious traps and is intent on slaughtering the scouts… one by one…

‘Insidious’ Producer Becomes a ‘Shut In’

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 10:55

Here’s a movie I can relate to…

THR first reports that Beth Riesgraf, pictured, is starring in the psychological horror thriller Shut In, which began production this week in Shreveport, La.

Rory Culkin (Scream 4), Martin Starr (Dead Snow 2) and Jack Kesy (“The Strain”) also are starring in the indie flick, which is being directed by Adam Schindler (Delivery: The Beast Within).

Riesgraf is playing a woman who suffers from agoraphobia so crippling that when a trio of criminals break into her house, she cannot bring herself to flee. But what the intruders don’t realize is that agoraphobia is not her only psychosis.

The production start marks a milestone for the project, whose road began in 2010 when it was written by TJ Cimfel and David White. It won top honors at the 2011 Shriekfest and was on the 2012 Blood List of Hollywood’s top unproduced horror screenplays.

Steven Schneider, whose credits include the horror films WER, Insidious and Paranormal Activity, is producing with Jeff Rice (Lone Survivor), Lati Grobman (The Iceman) and Erik Olsen (The Book of Eli).

Executive producing are Christa Campbell, Matthew Lamothe, Tommy Vlahopoulos, Brian Netto and Vicarious Entertainment.

NSFW ‘Moebius’ Clip Stabs a Dude In His Dick (Exclusive)

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 10:43

If you can watch this clip without puking, you’re a better man than I…

RAM Releasing’s fucking crazy Moebius (read our review), the latest from acclaimed Korean director Kim Ki-Duk (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter…and Spring), opens in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago throughout August (details below), and will be available to audiences nationwide via cable and digital VOD TODAY.

We’re pumping you up for the absolutely bonkers movie with this exclusive clip, one that will have you holding your crotch in pain. This is definitely vicious and NOT WORK SAFE!

When she catches her husband having an affair, a woman attempts to castrate the cheater for his wrongdoing. Unsuccessful, she instead inflicts the unspeakable act on her own son, setting off a series of grotesque yet provocative events ranging from a hurried genital transplant to pain-inflicted orgasms that all merge in a continuous thread of delirious storytelling. With both husband and son damaged and living in grief, the wife returns as the family heads towards destruction even more horrific than before.

Kim Ki-Duk, whose signature style pushes the limits of challenging filmmaking and often blows right through them, won the Golden Lion with Pieta at the Venice Film Festival last year. The prolific director is set to shock audiences again with Moebius, his latest perverse statement on family tensions, sexual boundaries and society’s issues with each.

The platform theatrical release sees Moebius opening in Los Angeles on August 8 (at The Cinefamily), New York City on August 15 (at Cinema Village) and Chicago on August 22 (at Facets). On August 29, the film becomes available on cable VOD at all major providers (Comcast, Time Warner, Cox, Verizon, et al) and digital VOD at iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu, Xbox, Playstation, Rovi and Samsung Hub.

In addition, we have (1) official poster signed by star Lee Eun-woo for you to enter to win. All you have to do is put MOEBIUS in the subject line and then send your FULL NAME and address to submit@bloody-disgusting.com. Winers chosen at random. No PO Boxes. US only.

Who Will Play Snake Plissken In ‘Escape From New York’

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 10:43

While most remakes don’t make a lick of sense, I’m actually intrigued and excited for the modern day take on John Carpenter’s Escape From New York, especially after what’s been going on in Ferguson. The fear of a police state is a growing concern in this country, and social commentary makes a film that much better (see Night of the Living Dead).

Assuming this long-gestured reboot gets off the ground, who may play the new Snake Plissken?

Pacific Rim‘s Charlie Hunnam, “The Walking Dead’s” Jon Bernthal and The Guest‘s Dan Stevens, pictured below, top Silver Pictures’ wishlist, according to Starlog. This means that no offers have been made, and that Silver hopes to land one of these three growing stars. Hunnam is said to be their top choice, but is my least favorite of the bunch. Frankly, I always thought Bernthal was the only thing good in “The Walking Dead” – and Stevens is just coming off an extremely badass role in Adam Wingard’s The Guest.

Something cool that may end up in the feature is that “Snake’s past will be seen in brief glimpses throughout the film, blending into his reality via Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder,” says a source to the site.

And although Snake is the protagonist, there will be a team aspect to this new version:

“Plissken’s team consists of Mina, a warzone journalist framed for murder and living in the shadows of New York as a scavenger; Cabbie, a schizophrenic travel guide who serves as comic relief; Gareth, the last surviving member of the President’s security detail who harbors a dangerous secret; and The Brain, Plissken’s former partner-in-crime who left him to die after a botched robbery.”

There’s still no director attached, so I’d say this is seriously premature news and I wouldn’t put any weight into it. But it is fun to imagine Shane blasting through a dark and rotting New York…

“Truth or Dare 5″ Dares to Return to Madness

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 08:56

Crowd-funding can be a hot button issue with a lot of people. Some favor the idea, and others staunchly oppose it. The beauty of the concept, though, lies in you, the potential consumer, taking on the role of judge, jury, and – if necessary – executioner of a project’s life. With that said, a “direct sequel” to the cult-classic Tim Ritter film “Truth or Dare?: A Critical Madness” has just started an Indiegogo campaign with a set goal of just $8,500, which actually sounds like a pretty high budget for a Tim Ritter film.

Set to co-direct and star in the film is Scott Tepperman (Syfy Channel’s “Ghost Hunters International”, “Don’t Look in the Basement 2″). I had the opportunity to speak with Tepperman at the Monsterama horror con earlier this month, and from my brief exchange with him, he seemed enthusiastic and very passionate about not only this project, but the genre as a whole.

See the interview with him below at the 4:32 mark:

Regardless of whether you love or loathe the idea of crowd-funding (or are just somewhere in between), I feel we should just respect the efforts being made by people to do what they love, because there’s always a risk of failure.
