GO SEE 'ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE' THIS WEEKEND

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 12:16

I’m only going to say this once, treat yourself this weekend and go indulge on Jim Jarmusch’s hipster horror Only Lovers Left Alive, starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska.

As I stated before, don’t expect a blood bath; what you’ll see is more of a moody vampire film that some people joke should be the last vampire movie ever made. They’re right. I think Only Lovers Left Alive brings it all around and it’s all been done to death. It’s time for a breather.

I’m a massive fan of the film, but it may not be for everyone. In fact, Ryan Daley liked, but didn’t love it. Evan Dickson was more on my side of the fence. Check out the following clip to get a taste (pun intended) of the film’s mood.

What’s it about? “Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 11:40

Even in a desolate desert you need to watch where you drive…

In an insanely spoiler heavy exclusive, we have a must-see featurette that takes you behind the scenes of Image Entertainment’s highly anticipated slasher, Wolf Creek 2, arriving on VOD platforms April 17, with a theatrical run set for May 16.

In the video featurette, watch how director Greg McLean shoots the soon-to-be cult classic sequence where Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) drives over a troop of kangaroo with his truck!

Directed again by McLean, “Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, backpackers Rutger, Katarina, and Paul visit the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes a horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the region ever wants to meet; Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).

As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic white knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one else has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man.

Does Johnny Depp Star In Kevin Smith's 'Tusk'?! No...

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 09:52

Update: My source responded with an emphatic “I wish,” putting this rumor to rest. Bummer, it took me forever to write this piece…

The Internet investigates, and possibly uncovers quite a doozy.

Fan-site Johnny Depp Zone put on their detective cap and may have stumbled on clues that reveal a part in Kevin Smith’s forthcoming Tusk.

Back in December, Smith announced that Tusk – a modern-day monster movie that follows a journalist named Wallace (Justin Long) who finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Michael Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses – wouldn’t be finished in time for the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. He cited that he still had “two more shooting days here in Los Angeles to wrap the flick with our fifth Beatle – the performer playing the role of investigator Guy Lapointe.” A casting that he called the highlight of his career.

Back to the Depp Zone, who compiled the following clues:

-Johnny Depp’s makeup artist, Joel Harlow, has listed Tusk on his resume, which has since been removed.

-VideoETA added this long-shot of a connection: “There is a personal relationship between Depp and Smith that dates back to when their daughters went to school together and they co-hosted poetry events for charity. The age is right and Johnny Depp has the range to pull off just about any sort of character.

-There was gap in January when Depp completely shooting Mortdecai.

-Amber Heard – Depp’s alleged fiance – is in three movies produced by Demarest Films, Tusk‘s production company.

-Lastly, and probably where this all stemmed from, Long did an interview with Long Island Newsday where he stated: “Yeah, the one where a man turns into a war horse. It’s called “Tusk.” Johnny Depp is in that one. I’m working on something coming up later.

We personally sent out a few e-mails this a.m. in hopes of getting confirmation. Watch this spot as new breaks.

In case you didn’t know: Depp is the greatest actor of our time. His range is uncanny.

White Moth Black Butterfly Release Video For "Rising Sun"

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 09:15

UK experimental group White Moth Black Butterfly has premiered a video for their new single “Rising Sun” over at Prog, which you can also watch below. Fronted by Daniel Tompkins (ex-TesseracT), it’s a unique, rather beautiful song. The mixture of Daniel’s vocals, who often aims for higher ranges, and co-vocalist Jordan Bethany, whose breathy vocals almost float throughout, create a wonderful dynamic.

You can snag the band’s debut album One Thousand Wings via Bandcamp.

GWAR Posts Video Statement On The Loss Of Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus)

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 08:30

The surviving members of GWAR and Slave Pit Inc. have come together to create a video statement regarding the recent passing of frontman David Murray Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus). The members talk about how the outreach from the fans has been nothing short of incredible for them and that Dave would want things to keep going, including the 5th annual GWAR-B-Q, where a public memorial service will be held. The group also did not lose their humor, as evidenced by the last several seconds of the video.

The video was also used to announced the creation of The Dave Brockie Foundation. The exact description reads, “The Dave Brockie Foundation is a charity fund with the mission of promoting the advancement of music, images, letters and performances in the arts. It will endeavor to encourage promising talents, as well as preserving the legacy of Dave’s body of works. It intends to be a support system to those who have dedicated their lives in pursuit of creativity. The Dave Brockie Foundation will be a resource for artists in the fields of music, film, literature and all visual arts who cannot find funding through mainstream channels. The DBF will also strive to catalog and preserve Dave’s vast collection of original images, recordings and written words, and make them available for the world to appreciate. The foundation’s first goal is to finance the creation of a memorial monument in Richmond, Virginia to provide the world with a place to pay respects to the memory of a very cherished man.

Donations can be made here. The video can be seen below.

'The Last Of Us Remastered' Trailer Reminds Us How Many Critics Enjoyed The Game

Thu, 04/10/2014 - 22:56

The newly confirmed The Last of Us Remastered got a trailer today. It serves as more of an ad for the base game, rather than this new “enhanced” version, but I’m not sure you can say much more about one of the previous generation’s most high profile and critically lauded titles.

As for what this version offers, Naughty Dog has said they’re reworking the character models, lighting and textures. This version will also run in full 1080p and bring with it the Left Behind expansion, as well as both of the Territories map packs.

Unless you’d like a reminder of how many critics enjoyed The Last of Us (spoiler: it’s basically all of them), I suggest skipping to around 0:50 to briefly see the game in action.

The Last of Us Remastered arrives this Summer on PS4.

Feel free to send Adam an email or follow him on Twitter:

HACK/SLASH Hunts Again in July!

Thu, 04/10/2014 - 21:49

Tim Seeley’s “HACK/SLASH” has been a unique series that always has fun by playing with the conventions of horror. No tribute is too far out of reach, and now a new creative team is slashing their way through Cassie Hack’s life. Michael Moreci (HOAX HUNTERS) and Steve Seeley (HOAX HUNTERS) bring the all new arc SON OF SAMHAIN.

When a mysterious cult of monsters arises, Cassie is forced to return to the life she thought she’d left behind. Coupled with a new partner and faced with enemies unlike any she has battled before, Cassie must confront the darkness in the world—and in her own life—in new ways. The agents of evil never rest, and unfortunately for them, neither does Cassie Hack.

From Image:


The newest chapter in Cassie Hack’s life will appeal to both long-time HACK/SLASH fans and readers looking for a jumping-on point. “Readers are going to get something that is immediately recognizable as Hack/Slash, yet unique in its own way as well,” said Moreci. “I think Tim told the story he wanted to tell, and that’s why he brought in Steve and I—we’re preserving what he did while building a whole new thing. There’s a lot of great stories to still tell with Cassie Hack and, hopefully, Son of Samhain is just the beginning.”

“All biases aside, I’ve been a Hack/Slash fan from the beginning. It’s a smart book with equal parts horror, comedy, action, sexiness; you name it. We knew continuing that legacy would be a difficult task, considering its history and loyal fan base, but Mike and I are damn proud of what we are doing with the book,” said Steve Seeley. “It’s still a sexy, comedic, action-y, horror comic, except it takes two of us to write it now. Mike’s all sexy action. I’m comedic horror. This is our sequel… the next step in the evolution of Cassie Hack.”

HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN #1 arrives in stores on 7/2, and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAY140592. An incentive variant cover featuring art by Cameron Stewart will also be available to order with Diamond Code MAY140593.

Having spoken to Michael Moreci at ECCC, I can indeed confirm the series is in very capable hands. They have some fantastic things planned for Cassie that we’ve never seen before. Stay tuned for an interview with this new creative team as the book gets a little closer to launch. I guarantee this will be one to watch for fans and newcomers alike.

Red Lights‘ Carole Bouquet, Doghouse‘s Christina Cole and Jason Isaacs also star in the series directed by Agnieska Holland and produced by Lionsgate TV.

Rick Remender & Greg Tocchini's "LOW" Finally Surfaces in July!

Thu, 04/10/2014 - 21:31

Not content with having two creator owned comics on the shelf, human comics machine Rick Remender is set to debut a brand new series from Image in July. “Low” follows two teams of humans from the last remaining undersea cities on Earth as they make the treacherous journey to a wildly alien world – the surface. This sci fi fantasy series sees Remender teaming up with his frequent collaborator Greg Tocchini (The Last Days of American Crime, Uncanny X-Force) to bring a new spin on old ideas.

Excitement has been bubbling since the series was announced at January’s Image Expo and today the release date and preliminary art was released by Image. Hit the jump to see what it’s all about!

Tocchini’s art is stunning. The duo’s work on Uncanny X-Force was some of my favorite in the series. Remender is one of those writers who manages to find artists who compliment his writing style beautifully, and if this art is any indication it looks like he has yet another home run on his hands. The work here reminds me of “Saga” in all the right ways, a little darker, but crisp clean art, with vivid and almost flat color.
