Reminder! The LA Screenings, Q&A's And VHS Giveaways For 'Almost Human' Start TONIGHT!

Fri, 02/21/2014 - 14:30

That’s right. Tonight we’re hosting the opening of Almost Human at Arena Cinema Hollywood (tickets here). IFC Midnight has it on limited screens and VOD (like iTunes) right now but Arena Cinema is the place to be!

Why? There will be a contest at each screening where audience winners can win a rare limited edition VHS copy of the film! Since Almost Human is a lovingly meticulous throwback to the bygone era of that format – this is definitely a fitting prize.

We’ll be hosting the 9:20PM and 11PM screenings of the film that night. Writer/director Joe Begos will be on hand along with the film’s stars Graham Skipper and Josh Ethier. We’ll be hosting a Q&A with them before the 9:20 showing. If you’re coming to the 11PM show that’s fine too, since we’ll be doing an intro/conversation with them before that showing starts.

Arena Cinema Hollywood is located at 1625 North Las Palmas Avenue Hollywood, CA 90028. I’ll see you there.

[OMFG] This Horrifying Monkey Toy Rips Its Own Face Off And Laughs At You!!

Fri, 02/21/2014 - 13:46

Update: These terrifying bears can be found at Scare Bears!

Wow. While I think the “normal face” for this doll needs some work to up the shock factor of the final reveal, I have to thoroughly applaud the gory punchline and the fact that this thing sadistically laughs at you. So, while I hope this is just a beta for a more refined product, I’m in. It’s nuts! I want one now!!

Thanks to reader “Gumbo Malloy” for sending this along!

Check Out This Band: RPWL

Fri, 02/21/2014 - 13:00

It’s time for me to suggest another band for you, the lovely BD readers! This time I’m suggesting Munich, Germany’s progressive rock band RPWL, who have their new album Wanted coming out on April 1st via Gentle Art Of Music/E1. The band originally began as a Pink Floyd cover band and the influences of this are readily apparent (I say this in the best way possible). They released their first album, God Has Failed, in 2000 and have since steadily released either studio or live albums.

The band’s previous album, Beyond Man And Time?, tackled the themes of Neitzsche. But for Wanted, the band turned to a more difficult topic: the ultimate liberation of the spirit. Heavily influenced by Plato, the album features 10 tracks that “…tell a compelling story of courage, doubt, bravery, the unconditional desire to never give in and, ultimately, the belief in what is right.

Head on below for a teaser of Wanted (which you can pre-order here) as well as the track “Unchain The Earth”.

RPWL online:
Official Website

Wanted Track Listing
01. Revelation
02. Swords And Guns
03. A Short Cut Line
04. Wanted
05. Hide And Seek
06. Disbelief
07. Misguided Thought
08. Perfect Day
09. The Attack
10. A New Dawn

Red Band Trailer For Ti West's 'The Sacrament' Brings On The Cult Massacre!

Fri, 02/21/2014 - 11:34

I might be the only employee of this site that has yet to see the latest feature from Ti West, The Sacrament (read our review). I’m hoping that will change soon because the trailer looks great! It looks like West has brought a lot of atmosphere, always his strong suit, to the faux doc format. The performances also look strong across the board. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a fan of Seimetz, Bowen and Swanberg – but they all seem to be stepping outside of their comfort zones a bit here and landing nicely as they do so.

Directed by West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers, V/H/S) and produced by Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever, The Last Exorcism, Aftershock, The Green Inferno), the film stars Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), AJ Bowen (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die, The House of the Devil, The Signal), Kentucker Audley (V/H/S), Amy Seimetz (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Tiny Furniture) and Gene Jones (No Country for Old Men). It opens on VOD platforms May 5 with a Limited theatrical run beginning on June 6.

“The Sacrament follows two Vice media correspondents as they set out to document their friend’s search to find his missing sister. They travel outside of the United States to an undisclosed location where they are welcomed into the world of “Eden Parish,” a self-sustained rural utopia comprised of nearly 200 members. At the centre of this small, religious, socialist community is a mysterious leader known only as “Father.” As their friend reunites with his sister, it becomes apparent to the newcomers that this paradise may not be as it seems. What started as just another documentary shoot soon becomes a race to escape with their lives.

[Exclusive] NSFW Video Premiere: Xiu Xiu "El Naco"

Fri, 02/21/2014 - 11:00

Some of the most unsettling and terrifying scenes in horror come from Japanese films. Audition, Kairo, One Missed Call, and more featured scenes that worked their way under my skin and scraped their filthy nails right along my spine. That feeling is what I’m reminded of with this music video premiere.

We’re teaming up with avant-garde group Xiu Xiu to bring you their video for “El Naco”, which is a dark, abusive BDSM tale that is NSFW due to nudity, strong sexual themes, and implied violence (with very visual blood). The song comes from the band’s latest album Angel Guts: Red Classroom, which is based upon the Japanese film of the same name (warning: link NSFW). I don’t want to give away any more, so head on below to see this unsettling, eerie video, which was directed by John C. Clark.

You can order your copy of Angel Guts: Red Classroom via Polyvinyl Records.

Atlus Shares 'Daylight' Release Date, Price, Nifty Twitch Integration

Fri, 02/21/2014 - 11:00

Last week, Atlus and developer Zombie Studios teased a nebulous April release for their supernatural horror game Daylight. Now that’s been narrowed down to April 8, so mark you calendars and make sure you have enough to cover its $14.99 price tag, because doesn’t look like a game you’ll want to miss.

These details were paired with the reveal of a nifty feature that gives strangers the power to make the game even more than it already is. Say you’re watching a Twitch stream where someone’s playing a bit of Daylight, exploring, seeking, solving puzzles. Zombie Studios has found a very clever way to integrate Twitch into the experience by letting live-stream viewers type words into the chat which then trigger in-game audio events.

Atlus has no plans on releasing the full list of words, but I’m very much looking forward to seeing what these audio cues entail. I think my first word will be sploosh.

Daylight will arrive on April 8 for PC and PlayStation 4.
