Creeptacular New ‘Insidious Chapter 3′ Poster!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 19:01

In addition to the incredible full trailer debut for Focus Features Insidious: Chapter 3, an insanely creepy new one-sheet has been released. I love how dark and gloomy it is, and how you can clearly see someone watching over a sleeping young girl. It’s super chilling stuff. The other new poster, on the other hand, is trash (so sick of the eye coming out of a mouth gimmick) – thankfully it’s international.

Leigh Whannell, co-creator of the terrifying horror franchise, directs the third film. Bloody Disgusting was invited to the set and saw a lot of cool stuff.

This chilling prequel, set before the haunting of the Lambert family, reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.

The full cast of Insidious Chapter 3 includes Dermot Mulroney (August: Osage County) and Stefanie Scott (Jem and the Holograms) starring alongside Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson, and Mr. Whannell, with the latter trio reprising their roles from the first two movies in the franchise.

Focus Features will release Insidious: Chapter 3 domestically nationwide on June 5, 2015.

Trailer For ‘Stitches’ Director’s ‘From the Dark’!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 18:42

When a young couple embarks on a road trip through the Irish countryside, car trouble lands them in a place that few people would choose to visit, in the stunning new horror film From the Dark.

From the director of the acclaimed Stitches(!), it will be available on VOD and Digital Download from Dark Sky Films on April 14, 2015.

While his previous films blended dark, deranged humor with thrills, Conor McMahon’s new film, an original production from genre specialists Dark Sky Films, is said to be pure, relentless horror that never lets viewers catch their breath.

Check out the trailer below!

Sarah (Niamh Algar, Vikings, The Light of Day) and Mark (Stephen Cromwell, The Legend of Longwood, Red Rock) are traveling through rural Ireland when car trouble strikes. The couple must head out on foot to find any sign of civilization. Eventually they come upon a lonely house – but the man inside is wounded, and when they try to help him, he attacks. Sarah and Mark manage to escape but soon they are confronted by something even worse.

A sinister being has awakened from a thousand-year sleep and it has set its sights on the stranded young couple. Deep within the dark bog, the two are faced with an unimaginable evil, but they soon realize that there may be one thing that can stop the creature: light. As the sun sets and light sources dwindle, the creature becomes more powerful, and Sarah and Mark find themselves in a fight for their lives where a gas lamp or even just the illumination of a single match may be the only thing that can save them.

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 18:19

TWC-RADiUS’ It Follows was a pretty big deal at the box office last weekend.

For those worried they’ll never get to see it in a theater, prepare to get excited.

Bloody Disgusting has been informed that RADiUS and Dimension are further expanding their smash success It Follows into 1,655 theaters as of Friday, April 3rd.

One of the best-reviewed films of the year (95% on Rotten Tomatoes) has also been bolstered by strong word of mouth with audiences coming in droves – exemplified by its Top Five box office performance this past weekend.

Directed by David Robert Mitchell, “Maika Monroe plays 19-year-old Jay, who, after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, suddenly finds herself plagued by nightmarish visions. She can’t shake the sensation that someone, or something, is following her. As the threat closes in, Jay and her friends must somehow escape the horrors that are only a few steps behind.

For those who have seen it, read what the director had to say about the finale.

As we keep pushing on you: I gave It Follows a perfect score, calling it “a classical horror masterpiece.” Mike Pereira referred to as a creepy, mesmerizing exercise in minimalist horror” when reviewed out of the TIFF last September.

Brandon Flowers’ “Can’t Deny My Love” Video Is All Sorts Of Satanic Creepy

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 18:15

UK pop songwriter Brandon Flowers has released a great music video for his super catchy song “Can’t Deny My Love” and it’ll appeal to fans of classic creepy stories. The video, which stars Evan Rachel Wood and Richard Butler (The Psychedelic Furs), is basically a retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s story “Young Goodman Brown”, with Flowers as the main character.

This video shows Flowers leaving his wife (Wood) and venturing into the dark night on some strange journey. As he travels, he runs across an old man (Butler) who offers him a serpent-shaped staff, which is refused. He continues on and runs across a Satanic ritual, whereupon he sees his wife as the main focus of the rite. She floats in the air and he finds himself cornered only to suddenly wake up, thinking that everything is a dream. However…is it?

“Can’t Deny My Love” comes from Flowers’ upcoming album The Desired Effect, which comes out on May 18th.

[Advance Comic Review] “Uncanny Inhumans” #0

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 16:46

Marvel Comics resurrects their Inhuman king Black Bolt in “Uncanny Inhumans” #0. The issue reads smoothly enough and holds the reader’s hand working quite well as an introduction to this massive chunk of Marvel’s world, but it’s the art by Steve McNiven that’s worth the price of admission.

STORY BY: Charle Soule
ART BY: Steve McNiven

PUBLISHER: Marvel Comics

RELEASE DATE: April 1, 2015

PRICE: $4.99 USD

The Inhumans are Marvel’s new mutants that much is certain. Within the last few months the focus on the X-Men has dwindled in favor of these much more interesting and vastly underused Inhumans. Now by virtue of what seems to be licensing rights these weird heroes are edging into the spotlight.

Charles Soule’s writing is standard and serviceable if nothing else. He seems to routinely play it safe with his scripts, nothing too bombastic coupled with smaller moments of action and interesting dialogue. Spending an issue following Black Bolt should be no easy task but thanks to the insanely awesome work by Steve McNiven the story never misses a beat.

The issue starts strong and immersive. Soule tells the reader that things are not going to be easy for the Inhumans. As the story progresses were introduced to a very familiar villain who will surely be one of the primary antagonists in further stories, but here he’s left to his own devices. It’s an odd gamble that pays off well.

Black Bolt has always been a little bit of an anti-hero and Soule seems to be following this thread. He’s done terrible things in the name of peace, and will continue to take chances to protect people. He’s a very absent king but his immense power puts fear on his side.

As a #0 issue goes. This works quite well at introducing the stakes of the world and the characters within it. It’s not hard to tell where the story goes from here, and despite being the story before the story it does a fantastic job at catching readers up to the world of the Inhumans.

Weirdly enough not enough happens. Everything in these pages feels like the filler that was cut out from the first issue. It certainly shows in the opening pages, and the final scene is really the only one that feels necessary to the story. Despite this it’s so pleasing on the eyes that it will make for an enjoyable albeit bland read.

As with most #0 issues this would only be for the diehard fans. Those of you who are not well acquainted with The Inhumans may find something to like here, but may find yourself more confused than engaged. It’s not quite the rollicking beginning to a new age of Inhumans that Marvel has promised but it gives the hint of that to come. So if you’re hungry for more Black Bolt than I’d say go out and grab it tomorrow, but if you can wait another month, you’ll have a much more interesting story to read.

James Gunn and Greg McLean Team for The Belco Experiment

Dread Central - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 16:34

Want to talk about a good reason to get really excited? This is it! James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Super, Slither, Dawn of the Dead) just announced via his Facebook page that he’s completed a script for Wolf Creek director, Greg McLean. Read on for details.

From James Gunn of Facebook:
I’m incredibly excited to announce that we’re commencing production on a new film, The Belco Experiment, from my own script. The story revolves around the American Belco company in South America which is mysteriously sealed off at the beginning of a work day, and its employees are ordered to kill each other or be killed themselves. This starts an escalation of violence, where we discover the true nature of each and every Belco employee.

The film will be directed by Greg McLean, who directed the Wolf Creek films, and it will be produced by myself, and Peter Safran, who produced Annabelle and The Conjuring. MGM will be financing. We’re in pre-production now and will be shooting in Bogota, Colombia in early June of this year.

I cannot tell you how passionate and excited I am about this project! It’s a script I wrote a few years ago, for which I have always had a deep love. Believe it or not, it’s a film that first came to me in a dream, and I woke up and wrote the first draft in a two-week fugue state binge.

One of the first people to ever read the script, Jonathan Glickman, carried it around with him for years until becoming President of MGM, when he approached Peter Safran and I about financing it. I was all for it, providing two things: 1) Although it has the heart and humor my films have all had, it is also the most intense and uncompromising script I’ve ever written. It would need to stay true to that. 2) I’d only do it if we found the right director – which, in some ways, I thought was unlikely.

Jon promised we’d make the film with full integrity – and, so far, MGM has – awesomely – been true to their word. And, after a long, concentrated search for a director we came to Greg McLean. Greg shares my philosophy about honesty in film, and his naturalistic style lends itself to Belco. The past few weeks we’ve spent working together have been a joy – I don’t know if I’ve ever related to another filmmaker’s sense of aesthetics and love of film more.

Say tuned for more as it comes!

Punk rockers The Hextalls have released an 8-bit music video for their song “Ouch, My Childhood”, which tackles their issues and concerns with all the remakes and sequels that have been coming out over the past several years. Directed by Aaron Romero, the video shows the band focusing on films such as Prometheus, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Star Wars films, and similar.

[TV Review] “Bates Motel” Episode 3.04: ‘Unbreak-Able’

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 15:54

Bates Motel’s fourth episode this season didn’t really do much to move Annika’s murder mystery plot along, but it did provide us with some nice character beats for Dylan, and had Norman discover the truth about Caleb’s whereabouts. On top of that, Norma tries frantically (without success) to gain access to the contents of the flash drive Annika handed her while she died last week.

For Annika’s death being the big climax of last week’s episode, not much progress was made in the investigation this week. Romero does some investigating and finds out that the car she was driving was registered to Lindsey, the girl who was found floating dead in the water a few weeks ago. He goes to talk to Bob Parish (aka creepy sex club owner) to no avail, but Bob does ask if Annika had anything on her when she died. Of course, Romero doesn’t know what this could be referring to, so he goes to talk to another hooker. Turns out Annika had a threesome with Lindsey, which may have played a part in both of their deaths. Okay.

Bates Motel seems to have a fascination with secret organizations, and they never really seem to be that compelling. Firsts we had the secret drug trade ring, now we have an evil sex club. Bob hasn’t had enough screen time to merit being seen as a real threat, and that’s hurting this season. As I’ve stated in previous reviews, Bates Motel is at its worst when it’s not focused on Norma and Norman. This episode is no exception.

Speaking of Norma, she spent the entire episode trying to get into the flash drive Annika handed off to her right before she died. Of course Norma doesn’t just hand it off to the police. What fun would that be? Instead, she tries to access its contents herself. When that doesn’t work, she goes to some random Joe Blow in a coffee shop to hack into it. It’s not really the best plan, but it does provide for a few laughs. Eventually she confides in Dylan, which finally pulls him into her storyline and away from his marijuana business.

Sadly, they go about it the wrong way and hide all of their sneaking around from Norman, who of course is on to their game. Freddie Highmore had some more great moments tonight as he starts to (correctly) suspect Norma and Dylan of hiding something from him. I believe Norman is fully in his “rebellious teenager” phase.

The main focus of this episode was the romantic relationships. First, the bearded psychology professor (his name is James, in case you were wondering) asks Norma out for coffee and she accepts. She breaks down to this (mostly) complete stranger about how it is becoming more and more difficult to recognize her son. I’m not really sure if they are setting up James to be a love interest for Norma, but he is infinitely more interesting than Michael Vartan’s character was last season so I’m intrigued by his presence. At the very least, it allows Norma to bare her soul to somebody besides Norman so I’m looking forward to where this relationship goes in future episodes.

Then we have Emma and Norman, whose relationship is starting to tailspin.  It is becoming clear (as Norma points out) that Norman is only dating Emma to make Norma jealous. It’s working, by the way. She seemed pretty livid that Norman didn’t plan on including her on his picnic with Emma and it was pretty hilarious to watch. We did get to see Emma call Norman out on his bullshit after he hesitated to have sex with her (because Norma told him he couldn’t). Olivia Cooke is one of Bates Motel’s strongest assets, and I’m happy to see them utilizing her more this season.

The best part of the episode (and I never thought I would say this), is Caleb and Dylan’s arc. Caleb finally gets to apologize to Dylan for raping Norma and tells him that he wants to make things right. Dylan is finally, mostly happy. he his getting closer with his dad/uncle and working together with Norma. Unfortunately Norma doesn’t know about Dylan’s relationship with Caleb, so when Norman finds them out in the final scene, it’s honestly heartbreaking. I can honestly say that it is the most I have ever cared about Dylan’s character. He doesn’t want to lose the relationship he’s started to repair with Norma, and once she finds out about Caleb he probably will.

Overall this was a solid episode of Bates Motel, devoted more to character development and revelations as opposed to moving the murder plot along. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just wasn’t that compelling of an episode. What did you think of “Unbreak-Able?”

Random Notes

  • “A girl just died on me but I’m fine.” – Norma has the best way of bluntly describing a terrible situation.
  • One of Norma’s password guesses for the flash drive? “SEXCRAZED.”
  • Norman asking Norma if she still likes him was a great moment for Highmore and Farmiga.
  • That makeout session between Emma and Norman was really….squishy. Please don’t do that again.
  • “My son and I have always been close. Probably too close.” – Well at least Norma is aware.
  • Norman, WHY would you tell Emma that your mother said you shouldn’t have sex with her.
  • Emma referring to Norma and Norman as “two people that wouldn’t know their ass from a handbag if they had a head cold” is amazing. I have never heard this saying before and I want to use it all the time now.
  • “I didn’t think your mother was coming on this date with us.” Amen, Emma.
  • “It’s probably her pimp or whatever.” – Norma, on the man who was rummaging through the motel office.
  • Dylan hides the flash drive inside the timer in his weed room. This will probably be important later.
  • It’s great that Caleb is sorry for raping Norma, but shouldn’t he be apologizing to her, rather than Dylan?

‘Wolf Creek’ Director Teams With ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’s’ Writer, James Gunn!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 15:44

While we all know James Gunn from his days with Troma, and being the writer of Dawn of the Dead and writer/director of SLiTHER, Gunn has become A-list with his Marvel masterpiece, Guardians of the Galaxy. But that hasn’t stopped him from dabbling in our genre.

Gunn took to Facebook to announce that they’ve commencing production on a new film penned by Gunn, The Belco Experiment, which will be directed by Wolf Creek‘s Greg McLean!

“The story revolves around the American Belco company in South America which is mysteriously sealed off at the beginning of a work day,” explains Gunn, “and its employees are ordered to kill each other or be killed themselves. This starts an escalation of violence, where we discover the true nature of each and every Belco employee.”

The film is currently in pre-production and will be shooting in Bogota, Colombia in early June of this year.

Match The 80′s Thrash Metal Cover To Its Band!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 15:00

Alright metal heads, heed my call! You think you know thrash metal? You think your torn jeans jacket has the most patches on it? Has your Flying V got enough buckle rash to expose the wood behind the lacquer? If your answers to these questions was a resounding, “Hell yes!”, then you might just have what it takes to beat this quiz!

Below is a gallery of 18 album covers. However, the band’s name on these pictures has been removed or isn’t visible. What you need to do is see if you can guess the right album cover when presented with the band name. There’s only one album cover per band.

Trust me when I say that it starts out easy but definitely becomes a challenge. I’m not going to post my score because I’m rather ashamed. However, I have a feeling that some true metalheads here will hit that perfect 18/18!

Give it your best show below and let us know how you did!

Marilyn Manson Touring With…The Smashing Pumpkins?

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 13:54

In what is in my mind one strange and odd tour combination, Marilyn Manson will be hitting the road on a co-headlining tour with The Smashing Pumpkins. the tour kicks off on July 7th in Concord, CA and wraps up on August 8th in Cincinnati, OH. Tickets go on sale this Friday.

Manson will be touring in support of his latest album The Pale Emperor (review) while The Smashing Pumpkins will tour their new album Monuments To An Elegy.

I really don’t know what to make of this tour combination. I never thought of either band as being something similar to the other. Yeah, there were times when The Smashing Pumpkins got a little weird and added some industrial elements but it was never along the level of Manson. Very strange indeed.

7/10/2015 Las Vegas, NV @ The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Trailer Is Epic Beyond Belief!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 13:40

Excuse me while I change my pants…

Warner Bros. just unleashed the full trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road, in theaters May 15, 2015.

What I just witnessed is easily one of the most epic trailers I can remember seeing, ever. They speak of “trailer moments”, and those lacking have something to hide. Well, the new Mad Max trailer has so much insanity, and so much energy, I’m not sure there’s going to be a moment to breathe when we all see the final product. Just when I thought I saw it all, there’s a shot of a dude playing a guitar and blasting flames from it. In the background is pure madness. Seriously, this looks like one of the best films of the year…

Mad Max: Fury Road stars Charlize Theron (Prometheus) as Imperator Furiosa, and includes Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Transformers: Dark of the Moon), Zoë Kravitz (Divergent) and Josh Helman (Jack Reacher).

“Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (Hardy), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.

And… Furiosa (Theron), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
