Sx_Tape Poster

Some tapes shouldn’t be made… or released.

Already out in the UK, Well Go USA Entertainment has yet to release Candyman director Bernard Rose’s found-footage Sx_Tape, starring Caitlyn Folley, Ian Duncan, Diana Garcia and Julie Marcus.

Produced by Steven Schneider of Paranormal Activity fame, we now have some sort of “theatrical” one-sheet that’s making the rounds. It’s an awful rip-off of previous Paranormal Activity, Quaratnine and [REC] posters.

Adam and Jill attempt to spice up their relationship by recording a sex tape in an old abandoned mansion. However, it quickly becomes apparent that they’re not exactly alone in their new ominous surroundings. Soon the couple realizes that some sex tapes should never be made as their kinky adventure turns into a desperate fight for survival.

Stream Mastodon’s New Song “High Road”!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 08:42

Sludge metal band Mastodon is gearing up for the upcoming release of Once More Round The Sun, the group’s sixth studio album, which comes out this June via Warner. Yesterday, a leak of a new single entitled “High Road” was leaked by a radio station but has since been taken down. However, that didn’t stop people from grabbing and sharing the rip.

In an effort to combat this, the band has released a high-quality stream of the track, which you can listen to below. It’s got all the trademarks of a badass Mastodon track, including thick, fuzzy guitars, great harmonies, and headbang-worthy riffage.

‘Delivery’ Gives Birth To the ‘Beast Within’ This May

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 08:31

The Collective has acquired the U.S. rights to paranormal thriller Delivery: The Beast Within, and will be releasing the feature in theaters and on VOD this May. A limited theatrical run in NYC, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, and Indianapolis is set for May 30th, with the movie hitting cable VOD on all major platforms three days prior on May 27th.

Directed by Brian Netto and produced by Adam Schindler (who also co-wrote the screenplay with Netto), Delivery: The Beast Within stars Laurel Vail, Danny Barclay, and Rob Cobuzio in the paranormal thriller that has been generating buzz since it premiered last summer at the L.A. Film Festival.

Delivery: The Beast Withintells the story of Kyle and Rachel Massy, a young couple who agree to document their first pregnancy for a family-oriented reality show. As the camera continues to capture strange events, Rachel begins to believe that a malevolent spirit has possessed their unborn child. Told through the show’s un-aired footage and interviews with friends, family and production members, this savvy debut feature leverages the voyeuristic properties of reality television to present a fresh perspective on classic horror themes of possession and the paranormal– and delivers enough eeriness to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Daniel Liljekvist Leaves Katatonia: Band Will Continue On

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 08:30

Drummer Daniel Liljekvist of Swedish melancholic metal band Katatonia has announced that he is leaving the band. The decision was not based upon any sort of strife or anger but rather simply his want to spend more time with his family. A full statement from him can be read below.

Meanwhile, the band will continue forward with their ‘Dethroned And Uncrowned – Unplugged & Reworked’ tour next month. Replacing Liljekvist will be JP Asplund, who performed the original percussion on Dethroned & Uncrowned as well as Dead End Kings. Drummer Daniel Moilanen will stand in during summer festivals.

Daniel Liljekvist:
Dear friends and fans,

I’ve been thinking about this for the last couple of months and I’ve come to the sad conclusion that i have to leave the band. It’s got nothing to do with ’difference in views´or any other bullshit. I just cannot combine job, family and commit 100% to Katatonia. Times for musicians are rough and i’ve decided to concentrate on my family and get a normal job that gets the bills payed.

I’ve had some of the best moments in my life the past 14 odd years together with my favorite people in the world. I’ve been all over the planet with this lot…my second family. Thank you! I’m gonna miss playing with you and I’m gonna miss hanging out with you on the road so much. And I’m gonna miss meeting all the great Katatonia fans all over the world. You know who you are. You are truly amazing! I’m not gonna miss all the freaks and idiots we’ve come across during all the years. You probably don’t know who you are. And I will not miss bad catering, shit beer and banana juice…

This is Daniel, rocking the fuck off! Cheers!”

From the members of Katatonia:
We are sad and hollow to see Daniel leave our ranks, but yet his decision has our sincere understanding. Nothing lasts forever and all good things must come to an end sooner or later. Yet it makes it so much more frustrating when it happens for the wrong reasons or before reaching our terminus. Particularly, we can’t pretend the current climate has nothing to do with it, in fact this is undeniably yet another outcome of musicians struggling at the crossroads of today’s “scene/industry”. Tragically, this situation forces a member, brother – and our fans favourite long-time drummer – to resign from a band he sacrificed a decade and a half to build. While encouraging this topic to inevitable debate and re-evaluation, we will always be grateful for the years we shared together and we wish Daniel the best of luck in the future. It goes without saying, we part as band members, but certainly remain as friends.

Emilie Autumn Dares You To Venture Into Her 'Asylum'

bloody disgusting - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 09:00

Avante garde “Victoriandustrial” artist Emilie Autumn is set to make five appearances on the upcoming Vans Warped Tour where she will be presenting her “Asylum Experience”, an innovative, immersive environment that will thrust concertgoers into a wild world of burlesque performances, circus attractions, theater acts, and, of course, live musical shows. This fantastical alternate reality will be known as “The Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls.” Based upon the two video teasers, which you can watch below, the event should be something truly incredible and memorable for any attendee.

Direct from the official press release:
Upon entering the all-day-long Asylum Experience, Warped Tour guests will be thrust into a visually stunning world policed by Victorian doctors and lunatic asylum guards, where striped-stockinged inmates attempt escape (will you help them or join them?), talking rats lead you on a hunt for hidden documents that may just secure your freedom, and a mad tea party proves to be more mad than Alice could ever have imagined (ours features an authentic Victorian electro-shock machine). With multiple tents and interactive elements to choose from and explore, numerous characters to follow, and endless secrets to uncover, every visitor will have a completely unique experience impossible to recreate. Audience participation is taken to a new level as the lines between performer and observer are completely blurred.

In the middle of the Asylum Experience festival area lies “The Cell”, the main stage where Emilie and her glittering cast of lunatics will present her musical extravaganza stage show twice daily before being kidnapped and put back in their cages.

Autumn was featured on our “10 Songs That Should Be In ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’” list, which you can see here.

Deftones Release A New Song From 'Eros', The Last Album With Chi Cheng

bloody disgusting - Sun, 04/13/2014 - 19:45

A year ago today, original Deftones bassist Chi Cheng passed away after being in a coma for several years following a terrible car accident. Although it seems small in the grand scheme of things, one of the losses fans suffered as a result of Chi’s horrible accident was the loss of Eros, the last album that the band recorded with Cheng.

Today, in a very brief statement via the band’s Facebook which read “Chi, We miss you today and everyday,” the band released one of the songs from that album. It’s a musically melancholic track with uplifting lyrics. But it has that signature Deftones emotion and angst. Below you can hear “Smile”.

Whip out your power nodes, because Youtuber Psychobob has created a Dead Space 2 workbench. I want this beautiful thing something fierce. This workbench was crafted using a 3D printer, some design software, and an impressive attention to detail. It looks just like it did in the video game, and the fact that it also has a built-in OLED screen and unfolds much like its virtual counterpart only makes me want it more. Read on to see how this mini-workbench was made.

Open World Horror Game 'Grave' Is Coming To Xbox One

bloody disgusting - Sun, 04/13/2014 - 17:04

Previously a PC exclusive, developer Broken Window Studios has announced they’ve joined the ID@Xbox program — Microsoft’s program to get games from indie developers on Xbox. This means their surreal open world horror survival game Grave will be coming to Xbox One. According to a post on the game’s Kickstarter campaign, the goal is to release all versions at once (Windows, Mac, Linux, Xbox One) in early 2015.

There’s a ton of horror games coming to PC and Sony has gone out of their way to sign on a bevy of horror titles for PS4, so it’s nice to see a promising title like Grave come to Xbox One. I’ve played it, it’s pretty great.

This is great news, but Grave still needs help with funding. If this is a game you’d like to help see a release, you can support it on Kickstarter.

Grab some friends, because Contagionmy new favorite cooperative undead shoot ‘em up — has transitioned out of Early Access in favor of a full release on Steam. This is particularly exciting because this is a horror game that was entirely funded by the gaming community — through Kickstarter — and it’s also one of the first crowdfunded horror games to officially release. I’ve spent a fair amount of time with it already, and loved every minute. It’s atmospheric, smart, gorgeous, and crazy addictive.

Captain America Shatters the Oculus

Dread Central - Sun, 04/13/2014 - 16:15

Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all? Actually, it was Captain America, followed closely by talking animated birds. The new haunted mirror movie Oculus still managed to score a fair share in its third place opening weekend.

Opinions have been contentious regarding Mike Flanagan’s Oculus, but audiences showed up this weekend for the first wide release horror film in about three months.

The Blumhouse Productions/WWE Studios co-production got off to a modest start with a $12 million opening. According to Box Office Mojo, that’s about on par with the last haunted mirror flick to hit theaters, Mirrors, which opened to a tad more than $11 million.

Divergent’s fifth place weekend granted another $3.4 million, bringing it to over $125 million domestically. The formula should now be obvious to Hollywood producers looking to adapt female-centric genre novels to films: dystopian future romances, yay; supernatural romance, nay. Twilight time has passed and we are now basking in the dawn of Hunger Games-inspired tweenertainment.

The next big screen installment in the Divergent franchise is already set to roll and it was announced this past week that the final book in the series will be, for absolutely no justifiable reason other than to maximize profits, divided into two films. In retrospect, it’s rather amazing that Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy didn’t end up as six films.

Next week, A Haunted House 2 tries to justify its existence while Johnny Depp threatens our existence by turning into the Lawnmower Man in Transcendence and Disneynature’s Bears celebrates Earth Day by showcasing the “giant, marauding, godless killing machines” that haunt Stephen Colbert’s nightmares.

'Paranormal' Brings Supernatural Horror To Mac

bloody disgusting - Sun, 04/13/2014 - 15:44

The ridiculously creepy supernatural horror game Paranormal has just made the jump to Mac. If you’re unfamiliar with it, the game follows an artist who’s trying to capture hauntings in his apartment. All of the scares are random, making each playthrough unique from the last. And because it’s an Early Access game, developer Matt Cohen is using user feedback to improve the game through a consistent stream of updates.

Even though it released in 2012, I broke all the rules and included it among my list of 2013′s best horror games. Read on to see why.

If you’d like to chase some ghosts — or get chased by them — you can grab Paranormal on Steam for $9.99.

This Cat REALLY Wants Some Attention

bloody disgusting - Sun, 04/13/2014 - 11:42

Cats are assh*les, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Seriously, they don’t care about people at all. Hell, they even did a study about it. Which is why the below video is just further evidence that cats are some of the biggest jerks around. This guy just wants to show off his shredding skills, which aren’t bad at all (although the backing track sounds like an 80′s/Nickleback mix). But what happens? His damn cat jumps on his lap and won’t leave. Instead, that little furry bastard even starts biting his hand. What a jerk…
