Latino Review has the spoiler filled goods. So, naturally spoilers here, folks.
DON’T READ ON IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW.
So apparently they’ve already filmed the end of Batman V Superman and Geek Tyrant tips us off:
According to the extra, the ending of the film has already been filmed. One of the scenes shot featured Batman breaking into Lexcorp to steal kryptonite, and apparently Lexcorp had somehow gotten ahold of General Zod’s body.
He went on to talk about the timeframe of the movie and where it picks up, saying that it starts “as the battle between Superman and General Zod ends or is ending (which would explain all the damaged buildings and vehicles we’ve been seeing in photos) and Batman/Bruce Wayne is attempting to make his way to the Wayne tower in Metropolis.”
Then Badass Digest comes in to corroborate everything:
I can confirm this. Lex has been gathering pieces and debris from the World Engine and he has used them to synthesize Kryptonite. Meanwhile he has also gotten ahold of Zod’s corpse, and it is the key to his master plan to defeat Superman. He uses that tissue to… well, that would be spoiling. But Superman hasn’t been defeated many times in the past. You can probably connect the dots from here.
Oh we can, and we will…
So we’re getting a live action Doomsday. That’s pretty god damn rad. As long as it’s handled with care, but that would finally allow this team up to make some sense. Especially if Batman wants to kick Supes ass for the ending of Man of Steel and show him how to take of a city, when Doomsday shows up and requires the aid of Wonder Woman. Pure conjecture here but hopefully that’t the direction we’re headed.
Hungarian sludge metal band Apey & The Pea have released an official video for “Abraham”, which comes from their upcoming second full-length album Hellish. The video, which doubles as a lyric video, uses footage from the 1960 classic film Black Sunday, which was directed by the legendary Mario Bava.
These guys are definitely up your alley if you’re into Pantera, Alice In Chains, and Mastodon. You can snag their first LP Devil’s Nectar via Bandcamp.
Dracula isn’t going to die anytime soon as FX’s Guillermo del Toro-produced “The Strain” has been renewed for a second season.
Global News has learned the series will be back in production in Toronto in mid-November.
The sci-fi series about a team of scientists trying to stop an ancient threat to humanity debuted in mid-July and has seen its audience grow slightly from week to week.
Says the site, production of the first 13-episode season took place in Toronto from September 2013 to late April.
The series was created by Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) and novelist Chuck Hogan, based on the pair’s book trilogy.
“The Strain” stars Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, David Bradley and several Canadian actors including Kevin Durand and Natalie Brown.
Part of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Canadian lineup is The Editor, which just gained a retro poster.
In Adam Brooks and Matthew Kennedy’s film, “A one-time (and now one-handed) master film editor toiling in the cinematic sweatshops of 1970s Italy becomes the prime suspect in a series of brutal murders.”
Giallo legend Udo Kier stars with Tristan Risk and Adam Brooks.
The film is said to be a loving tribute to/parody of the gory giallo thrillers of Mario Bava and Dario Argento.

“Backpacking through the lush Irish countryside, two unsuspecting young couples discover a town’s chilling secret.

Special features on the home video releases include both the “Leprechaun: An Icon Reborn” featurette and “Leprechaun: Behind the Blood” featurette.
This year’s Gamescom has been particularly good for horror fans, especially if you’re looking forward to The Evil Within. We’ve found out the game gleefully sets kids on fire, will take between 15-20 hours to beat, has a trio of DLC coming post-release, and will be getting some snazzy alternate box art. That’s great and all, but it’s lacking some fresh screenshots.
Let’s go ahead and take care of that.
The Evil Within releases on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 14.
In this new video, Guns ‘N Roses’ legend, Slash, announces a brand new maze inspired by his original music coming to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Celebrated Grammy Award-winning musician, Slash, hailed as one of the 10 best electric guitar players of all time by Time magazine, is joining forces with Universal Studios Hollywood to compose an original score for the theme park’s hypnotizing new 3D maze, “Clowns 3D Music by SLASH” at “Halloween Horror Nights,” beginning Friday, September 19, 2014.
While partnering with top recording artists has become a signature of “Halloween Horror Nights,” this collaboration with prolific guitarist, SLASH, marks the first time a musician has created an original maze score for the popular event. This inspired effort comes at a demanding time for SLASH, whose new album “World on Fire” debuts on September 16, 2014, on the heels of his “Let Rock Rule” World Tour performing with Aerosmith.
Infused with the rocker’s hell-raising electric guitar riffs, the ominous new “Clowns 3D Music by SLASH” haunted attraction is no laughing matter as it unmasks the psychological disorder known as Coulrophobia, a disturbing condition affecting those with an extreme and irrational fear of clowns.
The psychedelic 3D maze will horrify guests, taunting and tempting them with terror and treats as they parade through “Sweet Licks Frozen Clown Pops Family Amusement Center,” a dilapidated roadside attraction and one-time thriving ice cream factory run by deranged siblings and their mad clown father, Sweet Licks. As this demented trio schemes to restore the family business by luring visitors with free ice cream, guests will soon find themselves on the menu as the key ingredient of a sick new high-protein ice cream concoction.
“Halloween Horror Nights” 2014 at Universal Studios Hollywood will be “More Dead Than Ever,” as it brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in the living, breathing, three-dimensional world of the most notorious and terrifying creatures in existence. This year’s event will feature a slate of all-new unrivaled film production quality mazes, terror-filled scare zones and a fully re-imagined “Terror Tram” experience, uniquely themed to today’s most definitive horror properties, including, “The Walking Dead: The End of the Line,” based on AMC’s critically-acclaimed, Golden Globe-nominated and Emmy Award-winning television series; “From Dusk Till Dawn,” inspired by Robert Rodriguez’s cult film and El Rey network’s TV series; “Dracula Untold: Reign of Blood,” based on Universal Pictures’ upcoming epic action-adventure; “AVP: Alien vs. Predator,” based on the Twentieth Century Fox film franchise; “An American Werewolf in London,” based Universal Pictures’ Academy Award-winning and genre-defining film, written and directed by John Landis; “Face Off: In the Flesh,” based on Syfy’s hit TV series, and “The Purge: Anarchy,” a new scare zone inspired by Universal Pictures’ blockbuster thriller.
He didn’t drown. He didn’t burn. He’s just a psychopath with a sledgehammer.
Sledge, a ‘bloody’ horror-comedy in the tradition of Tucker and Dale vs. Evil and Shaun of the Dead, premieres on VOD September 2nd and DVD on October 7th.
A spoof of the horror genre, and littered with nods and references to fright flicks of yesteryear, the film fixes on a psychopath who not only believes he’s in a movie and video game but that he’s the hero of this story.
Sledge is directed by John B Sovie II and Kristian Hanson, and stars Dustin Bowman, Stephanie Tupper, Rachel Cornell and Hanson as Adam Lynch.
Deadline writes that Kathryn Morris, pictured, has joined the Sony Screen Gems thriller The Perfect Guy.
Sanaa Lathan stars as a woman who meets the seemingly perfect guy (Michael Ealy), but he turns into a sociopathic stalker when she breaks up with him. Morris will play Karen, the mother of an all-boys family who is a close confidante of Lathan’s character and offers counsel and wisdom about her romances.
This sounds right up Screen Gems’ alley, who started by remaking horror films and turning them into soft thrillers. At least we know what they’re making, now.
Morris Chestnut and Rutina Wesley also star in the film from director David M. Rosenthal and writer Tyger Williams.
ScreenDaily has the beat on Dog Soldiers and The Descent director Neil Marshall‘s next producing project.
Marshall, who also helmed some of “Game of Thrones,” will executive produce Dark Signal, a ghost story being directed by Edward Evers-Swindell.
The script, penned by Evers-Swindell and Antony Jones, “follows a stranded woman who must solve the mystery of a murdered girl whose spirit has returned with a message.”
James Cosmo (“Game of Thrones”) and Cinzia Monreale (The Beyond) star. It is being produced by Jonas Babics and Paul DuBois.
After reporting last week that Dimension Films’ Kristy – formerly Satanic and Random – was available in Germany, a reader was cool enough to send in some early thoughts on Oliver Blackburn’s slasher that stars Haley Bennett, Ashley Greene, Erica Ash, Chris Coy and Lucas Till. Even though it doesn’t sound like a home run, reader ‘Killer Karl’ says that Kristy is still entertaining. It got me excited enough to wish TWC-Dimension would hurry up with a release date,
Editor’s note: The review has been cleaned up for grammar.
Hey Bloody Disgusting, big fan from Germany here and I wanted to send some early thoughts on Kristy, which is now on video here.
I really liked Olly’s ‘Donkey Punch’, and I like slasher films even more. I saw Dimension Films was behind this, so I had really high hopes. Unfortunately, ‘Kristy’ isn’t as good as it looks, bit it’s still worth a watch.
‘Kristy’ follows a girl, named Kristy, who is stuck on her college campus during Thanksgiving break. She’s basically alone, with a lone security guard watching over the dorms. This is when Kristy is confronted by a group of masked individuals intent on tormenting her, recording it, and then killing her live on the web.
The biggest issue I had with the film is that the opening credits ruin the motive. The best thing about good slasher is either the lack of motive, like in ‘Halloween’, or the big reveal at the end, like in ‘Scream’. ‘Kristy,’ on the other hand, reveals the big twist before the very first frame. For me, it took away the suspense and surprise, especially because it was sort of stupid. I don’t think Im ruining anything by telling you that these killers are part of a satanic cult (the movie was called Satanic) who are killing girls named Kristy across the country. So, as part of a mass sacrifice, they’re trying to kill this Kristy. I really wish they hadn’t shown this and left it up to the imagination – why do these people want to kill Kristy? Why do they carve a K in her face?
I really enjoyed that the main killer was a female, which hasn’t been done in quite some time. The masks were very cool, and there were some really good jump scares. Olly did his best job to remove technology from the film, so that the staking and murder spree was more believable. Something else I didn’t like is that, since they’re hunting down Kristy, there are really no other victims. The only people to die are the killers, unlike in a movie like ‘Inside’ which bring in new victims to kill throughout. There’s no violent rampage of Michael Myers tearing through a campus. It’s more of a thriller than a horror film. It’s only a slasher in spirit.
Even tough it’s lacking, I thought it was fun and really well shot. It is sort of the perfect Friday night rental to see with some friends when you have no idea what to watch.
TWC-Dimension has yet to set a release for the film here in the States. It takes place when the rest of a campus home for the Thanksgiving holiday, Justine spends the weekend in her college dormitory: studying, relaxing and blissfully unaware of the terror that is about to unfold outside in the cold. Suddenly, confronted by a gang of violent outcasts, Justine’s quiet long weekend becomes one long lesson in survival as she is terrorized in increasingly bizarre and brutal ways, leaving it up to her to figure out who her attackers are…and if they can be stopped.
Al Bravo Studios and Chemical Mind Studios have partnered to give horror fans a new thrill with their haunting new film 2 Bedroom 1 Bath (not to be confused with 2BR/1BA, the film that’s insanely similar to the Japanese 2LDK), coming to theaters on Friday, September 5th.
Starring Michelle Hicks (Mullholland Drive, “The Shield”) and Andrew W. Walker (Steel Toes, Against the Wall), 2 Bedroom 1 Bath is the tale of a couple whose seemingly perfect dream home quickly becomes their nightmare.
“The film follows Rachel (Michelle Hicks) and Kevin Foster (Andrew W. Walker), a couple who have finally found the ideal apartment where they can build a future and raise their children. It’s a fresh start for their sometimes troubled marriage, but as they begin to settle into their new home, their plans are quickly interrupted. Strange occurrences in the apartment begin to invade Kevin’s dreams and challenge Rachel’s sanity. The hauntings are so terrorizing that Kevin is forced to delve into the history of their new home and he uncovers a shocking past that threatens to destroy his and Rachel’s future.”
Co-starring Eric Roberts (The Expendables, The Dark Knight), Costas Mandylor (Saw series), and Dee Wallace (The Howling, E.T.), this psychological thriller was written and directed by Stanley Yung.

Until now, the cast of enemies in Sunset Overdrive has consisted of energy drink mutants and bandits, but in the latest trailer we’re introduced to a new enemy: Fizzco’s army of robots. This quirky and colorful post-apocalyptic freerunning shooter — my favorite new sub-subgenre — is doing its best to cram every awesome thing it can, and I absolutely cannot wait for it to release this October. I desperately need something new to play on my Xbox One.
Sunset Overdrive releases on October 28.
I’ve been a champion of Norwegian prog rock/metal band Leprous for a while now. Their 2011 album Bilateral is an album I still blast, not just because of the amazing songwriting or the fantastic technicality but also because it’s just so damn fun! And for the longest time, I’ve been wanting the album on vinyl, which seemed like an impossible pipe dream. But no longer.
Finnish record label Blood Music has revealed details for the upcoming Bilateral vinyl reissue and I’m pretty much losing my mind. The album will be coming out on limited 2xLP multi-splatter with a frosted clear base (unf…) and is going to be available for pre-order in exactly one week.
Now, when I say this is limited, I mean it. There will only be 250 copies released, 100 for the USA/Canada and 150 for the rest of the world, so you better be ready next Thursday to snag your copy. The album will then be released on October 28th.
Head below to check out some artwork plans.
PRE-ORDER: August 20th at 5PM Finnish time (10AM NYC).
RELEASE: October 28th.
* First time ever vinyl pressing of the amazing prog-metal classic.
* 180-gram+ Multi-Splatter [colors subject to change slightly - but relatively similar to what is pictured] on Frosted Clear Base 2xLP.
* Mastered specifically for vinyl from the 24-bit original mixes, cut at 45 RPM for optimum fidelity.
* 350gsm heavyweight board triple gatefold, utilizing the high resolution original artwork.
* Black inner sleeves.
If you missed the big reveal, during Microsoft’s pre-Gamescom media briefing, Rise of the Tomb Raider was shown off and revealed as an Xbox exclusive. This understandably sent the Internet into a full uproar, as disgruntled fans fumed online about the deal between Microsoft and Square Enix. In an effort to defuse the situation, Microsoft later confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider is just a timed exclusive for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, meaning it will come to other platforms eventually.
Because the Internet rarely forgives and never forgets, many fans are still upset. At the time of this writing, nearly 12,000 have signed a petition for the arrangement to be rescinded.
This is just all around bad news. It’s bad for Microsoft, which really can’t take more any more bad press, especially now that the Kinect is all but dead and sales of the Xbox One are trailing the PS4 by a wide margin. It’s also bad for Square Enix, which has only recently found success with the Crystal Dynamics developed reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise.
We still don’t know how long this timed exclusive will last. Tomb Raider is a hot property right now, so I imagine the deal was arranged so Microsoft could tout Rise of the Tomb Raider as a holiday exclusive. My guess is the deal will end in early 2016 — or, at least that’s what I hope.
Rise of the Tomb Raider releases in late 2015.
UK trip hop pioneers Portishead have made a limited reissue of their 1994 debut album Dummy available for pre-order. The vinyl will start with 1,000 copies on blue vinyl before reverting to heavyweight black, both being on 180-gram vinyl. Each record will contain a download card for Dummy. The reissue will not feature any new material.
I can’t tell you the number of times that I’ve listened to this album. It probably has to be in the hundreds. Truly one of the best albums ever released.
You can snag your copy here.
