Out of AFM we learned that The Raid stars Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian will star alongside Captain America and Purge: Anarchy‘s Frank Grillo in Beyond Skyline.
The sequel/spinoff to Colin and Greg Strause’s Skyline is to be directed this time by Liam O’Donnell, who worked on some effects in Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem and Iron Man 2. He co-wrote the screenplay with Joshua Cordes. The duo wrote the first film, too.
The sequel’s storyline allegedly takes place at the same time the first one did.
Hydraulx Entertainment is behind Beyond Skyline, and do some seriously badass effects work.
With as much time as I’ve spent covering them here, it must have taken a monumental amount of effort on your part to not give in and grab the indie horror game Outlast, and/or its sufficiently terrifying Whistleblower expansion. If you have yet to add one or more of these games to your library, this is where you should start paying attention.
Because the folks at Red Barrels are the very best, they’ve gifted me with 5 Steam codes for Outlast and another 5 for Outlast: Whistleblower, which I’ll now be giving away to some lucky readers.
For a chance at taking one of these codes home with you, all I’ll need you to do is:
1. Subscribe to our YouTube channel
2. Comment below with your YouTube name (so I can make sure you didn’t skip step #1) and which game you prefer a code for.
Enter by Saturday, November 15 for a chance to win!
This is just our way of celebrating the recent news that developer Red Barrels is currently working on Outlast 2. For bonus points that don’t mean a thing because I’ll be choosing the winners at random, let me know in the comments what you’d like to see from the upcoming sequel.
Primus. What a weird fucking band. Absolutely insane music that shouldn’t work and yet it does. I don’t know why I love this band but goddammit I do.
Because I don’t get to talk about them nearly enough on BD, I wanted to feature their music video for “Mr. Krinkle”, which comes from their 1993 album Pork Soda. The video is a one-take shot and shows Les Claypool dressed as a pig in a business suit playing a standup bass. In the background are tons of different entertainers, from slave drivers to girls jumping rope, fire breathers to contortionists. It’s just a crazy video that makes little to no sense and yet, as a result, is absolutely perfect for Primus.
Enjoy it below and have an awesome weekend!
BOOM! Studios have made a name for themselves in the world of comic book horror thanks to teaming with the mastermind that is Clive Barker, but they also have been pushing to show people that Barker isn’t all they have. “Hexed” is a surreal fantasy that has a horrific tone, and unique world. It’s a truly original take on the genre.

Synopsis: It’s a battle of the millennia in the making as Yves and Madame Cymbaline face off for the control of the Graeae family, with Lucifer, Raina, and Val caught in the middle. Equipped with the Binding Frame and Michaelangelo’s Torque, the Brisendine Gallery Gala turns into a worlds-spanning warzone as Lucifer makes the ultimate sacrifice.
Sometimes when you listen to music you realize that what you’re hearing moves beyond the simple definition of “music” and transcends into “art”. Now, art is a bit subjective but I feel very comfortable applying that label to the music of Elizabeth Motzell, whose album Evidence And is a haunting mix of eerie music and spoken poetry.
The combination results in something that is far more cerebral than everyday background music. It demands your full attention, asking you to think and devote a little bit of time to introspection.
Next Thursday Iam8bit (2147 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90026) is hosting a spectacular gallery of art that imagines movie sequels that were never made.
Below you can check out some samples from “SEQUEL,” an exhibit featuring the works of more than 40 artists.
Among the gallery of art you’ll find incredible art for never-made films such as Hellboy III, Sleepy Hollow 2, The Rocketeer: Crimson Skies (my personal favorite), Fight Club 2 and more!

The horror adventure game Asylum has been in development for half a decade now. It’d be about a year short of qualifying as vaporware if developer Senscape didn’t offer the occasional reminder that it’s still very much alive and on track to release when it’s damn good and ready. So far, each update has offered a painfully glimpse look at the upcoming game, but that changes today thanks to a substantial update on its Kickstarter.
For starters, they’ve announced they’re making a documentary called “A Tour of Hanwell” that will chronicle the horror game’s longer-than-usual development time. The film will cover some of the things we’ve come to expect from “making of” films, including a look at early concept art and some behind the scenes footage. It will even follow the team as they visit a real asylum.
You know, for research.
The developer also offered some details on the official Asylum art book, which they’ve crammed full of “concept artwork, storyboards, early renders of locations, outtakes, the story and blueprints of Hanwell, trivia, the register of inmates including many [backer] names” and dubbed it the Record Book of the Insane Department.
Oh, and if you’re a backer who donated $100 or more to its Kickstarter campaign, Senscape is working on a VIP exclusive demo they hope to have ready later this month.
Senscape also offered a glimpse of the redesigned interface.
Despite my getting into video games at an early age, back when the point-and-click genre was at its most popular, I’ve never been able to discover a hidden enthusiasm I might possess deep within me for the beloved genre. Granted, this is almost entirely due to a lack of trying on my part, as I have limited free time now and there are so many games I’d like to play. If ever there was a game that could finally draw me in, it’d be the sci-fi horror game Stasis.
There’s a lot to love about the bleak world developer Chris Bischoff has created for Stasis, from its impressive graphical fidelity to the smartly crafted scares, which are made more effective by its atmospheric environments and a haunting soundtrack from Fallout composer Mark Morgan.
It may borrow some ideas from Dead Space, mostly in regards to its art style and setting, but what it takes as inspiration is woven into the game world until it feels familiar, but not necessarily borrowed.
I’ve spent some time with its demo, which you can download free of charge over here. Otherwise, you can see my first impressions of this promising horror game in the video below.
We still don’t know when Stasis will release, but when it does it’ll come to PC.
Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with Barrie, ON black metal band Idol Of Fear to bring you the exclusive track premiere of “Morningstar”, which comes from their upcoming album All Sights Affixed, Ablaze (out November 18th).
Vocalist/guitarist Austin Myers describes the song:
“Morningstar” was inspired by and is in tribute to the allure of dark art, and the path taken by individuals who choose to explore its depths.
The track reminds me of a mix of Behemoth and Opeth, which is a very high compliment. I’m really enjoying the layering and texture of the song as well as its dynamics. To paraphrase Special Agent Dale Cooper, this is a some damn fine metal.
Head on down to check out the track and make sure to pre-order the album via Bandcamp.
The Iron Sky franchise has gone from stupid to stupid good in just 1-second flat.
Running yet another crowd funding effort through IndieGoGo, this teaser for Iron Sky: The Coming Race has sold me in a single shot – Adolf Hitler riding a dinosaur.
Check out this nearly 4-minute long teaser that’s about as good as any well-made short out there. The scope looks massive and I love that it begins in “the real world,” adding to the film’s potential realism.
Also, I’m a huge conspiracy fan, so the fact that Iron Sky follows insane Nazi conspiracy theories only makes me even more intrigued (the sequel takes place 20 years after WWII and enters “Hollow Earth.”)
I want this NOW.
Because horror is a juggernaut that cannot be stopped, Breach & Clear: DEADline developer Gun has revealed a new horror game inspired by teen slasher films. Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp is basically Friday the 13th: The Game, as it follows a gaggle of horny teen counselors who find themselves being hunted by some woods-dwelling psychopath — played by you.
If you have the nagging feeling you’ve heard of this game before, you’re probably thinking about Splatter Camp, the other teen murder simulator from Babysitter Bloodbath (formerly Halloween) developer Pig Farmer Games.
This isn’t Splatter Camp, this is Summer Camp. Get to know it in the trailer below.
Bloody Disgusting is excited to share the latest sales trailer for Steven C. Miller’s (Silent Night, Under The Bed, Aggression Scale) Submerged, which features Tim Daley, Mario Van Peebles, Jonathan Bennett and Rosa Salazar in a heap of trouble.
Penned by Mother’s Day‘s Scott Milam, “the film sees a limo ride home from a party turning into a terrifying ordeal for a group of college kids. A young woman and her friends have been targeted by a ring of vengeful kidnappers and must do everything they can to survive after their limo is forced off the road and plunged into a canal.”
Watch as a great night turns into a limo ride from hell…jam-packed with gun fights and limo chases!
Scream Factory! has acquired U.S. rights to Takashi Miike’s latest chiller, Over Your Dead Body, which screened at this past September’s TIFF. Watch for it to release in 2015.
“A star, Miyuki Goto (Ko Shibasaki) plays Oiwa, the protagonist in a new play based on the ghost story Yotsuya Kaidan. She pulls some strings to get her lover, Kosuke Hasegawa (Ebizo Ichikawa) cast in the play, even though he’s a relatively unknown actor. Other performers Rio Asahina (Miho Nakanishi) and Jun Suzuki (Hideaki Ito) lust after Miyuki. Off stage the cast’s possessive love and obsessions exist as reality. Trapped between the play and reality, the cast’s feelings for each other are amplified. When it becomes clear that love is not meant to be both on and off stage, love turns into a grudge and crosses the blurred line between reality and fantasy.”
Ebizo Ichikawa, Ko Shibasaki, Hideaki Ito, Miho Nakanishi, Maiko, Toshie Negishi, Hiroshi Katsuno and Ikko Furuya star.
We just received first word on Another Evil, a supernatural comedy starring Steve Zissis (pictured; “Togetherness”), Mark Proksch (“The Office”), Jennifer Irwin (“Eastbound & Down”), Dax Flame (21 Jump Street), Dan Bakkedahl (“Veep”) and Steve Little (“Eastbound & Down”).
“After encountering a ghost in his family’s vacation home, Dan (Zissis) a modern artist and his wife Mary (Irwin) hire an “industrial-grade exorcist” named Os (Proksch) to get rid of the beings…turns out something does need to be exorcised but it’s not the spirits.”
Another Evil is written and directed by Carson Mell (“Silicon Valley”).
The film has already begun principal photography in Prescott, Arizona
Sebastian Pardo and Riel Roch Decter of “Memory” produce.
MPI Media’s Dark Sky Films has acquired U.S. rights to Brian O’Malley’s UK horror Let Us Prey, starring Liam Cunningham (“Game of Thrones,” Hunger), Pollyanna McIntosh (Filth, The Woman) and Douglas Russell (A Lonely Place To Die), Bryan Larkin (Outpost 3), Hanna Stanbridge (Outcast), Brian Vernel, Niall Greig Fulton and Jonathan Watson.
In the Irish horror, “An enigmatic stranger is detained in the cells of a remote police station one fateful night. From his basement dungeon the charismatic loner begins to take over the minds of his fellow inmates and those of the police officers. He influences them to bend to his evil will and their latent inner demons explode in a crazed night of blood-spilling and mayhem. Only rookie cop Rachel is able to resist him … Will she survive?
Judge, Jury and Executioner are waiting in Let Us Prey.”
While this past Wednesday’s episode of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” was more enjoyable than most (read our review); things have sort of taken a turn for the worst since REDACTED died. I mean, the episodes or arc don’t seem to have a point – what’s the plight of the carnies, who cares about the collectors, and why are they showing us who died this early in the season? I’m really hoping this all comes together soon, but I fail to see the “conflict” in it all – and shit, how does Twisty tie into all of this? This is the first time FX and Ryan Murphy’s series is losing me so early in the season…
Things continue next week in Episode 4.6, ‘Bullseye,’ in which Elsa unveils a dangerous new act. Stanley puts pressure on Maggie to murder Jimmy. Paul indulges in a secret romance.
Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with Alberta, Edmonton industrial goth pop band Cygnets to bring you the full stream of their upcoming album Sleepwalkers, which comes out Nov. 15th via Negative Gain Productions.
The band has been compared to acts such as Depeche Mode and Placebo and they’ve shared the stage with such acts as Electric Six, Apoptygma Berzerk, Die Mannequin, and more.
The band comments on the album, stating:
The songs on Sleepwalkers represent alienation, despair, suicide, passion, lust, and longing. And dancing. Death is no fun if you can’t at least dance to it.
Head below for this exclusive album stream and make sure to pre-order the album via Bandcamp.
There are a lot of horror games on the way, and we have new games being announced all the time. Just last week we exclusively revealed a sequel to Outlast, which happens to be one of the scariest games I’ve ever played. As bright and wonderful as things look now, video games is a fickle industry, one that shows little mercy even to the most promising horror games.
While a lengthy silence can mean the quiet end of a promising horror game, it’s not always a bad thing. Both Dead Island and Until Dawn went without any real updates for a year, or longer. It’s relatively safe to say that most of the games on this list will see a release, it’s just a matter of when.
Call of Cthulhu
We’re rapidly approaching a full year since developer Frogwares announced their plans to bring us a new Call of Cthulhu game. It’s rarely a good thing when a game goes silent, but the wait to hear more about this game has been particularly brutal seeing as the Lovecraft Curse has already claimed both sequels to Dark Corners of the Earth and Guillermo Del Toro’s InSane.
Poor InSane. It was to be the first in a planned trilogy of action horror games based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft, and it had the potential to be an amazing new horror franchise. Del Toro has said he’s still pursuing it, but I’m not holding my breath.
