Confrontational Challenge You to “Stand Your Ground” (Premiere)

bloody disgusting - Thu, 09/01/2016 - 12:00

Last Fall, we brought you not one but two premieres from Italian synth group Confrontational, who fully embrace the horror elements that the genre delved into in the 70’s and 80’s and once again in the past several years while also adding in their own unique elements and flavors. The end result is music that is highly engaging, exciting, and right up the alley of any horror fan!

Today, we’re giving you the first taste of Confrontational’s upcoming album Kingdom of Night by premiering the track “Stand Your Ground”, which is a total 80’s throwback and is packed with a catchy beat, powerful vocals, and a shredding guitar solo. So, tease up your hair, put on your blackest clothing, pop on your sunglasses, and light up a cigarette. I promise it’ll set the right mood!

In related news, the first Confrontational album A Dance of Shadows got a highly limited 500 copy translucent green vinyl pressing, which can be pre-ordered right here.

Confrontational’s Massimo Usai tells BD:

The tracks on ‘Kingdom of Night’ (the second entry in a trilogy that started with ‘A Dance of Shadows’) are sounding darker, deeper and heavier than ever before, and “Stand Your Ground” is a very good example of this new direction I’ve taken. There was a deliberate focus on trying to create some classic anthems in the songwriting process – tracks with relentless beats, an emphasis on melody and a really driving chorus. The lyrics are quite representative of the whole album as well – a reaction to the fear, isolation and disconnection of this day and age… with hope looming somewhere in the distance. I was heavily influenced by my hometown of Cagliari, Sardinia, and its esoteric aura can be felt strongly throughout the LP in more than one way. I have been working very closely on the artwork with Branca Studio, and I could not be happier with the results.

The new collaborations make me extremely proud of the release: the unmistakable lead synth of the amazing Cody Carpenter is coming back with a vengeance on “Crimson Curtains”, there’s the cinematic melancholia of Ugo Laurenti (the Italian composer who scored Pupi Avati’s ‘Nocturnal Voices’ – a huge personal inspiration) on “Midnight Wings”, and then the beautiful, haunting voice of Hélène De Thoury (of French cold-wave act Hante) on “Keep Faith”, which marks an emotional highlight on the album. The epic sound stones of the late Sardinian sculptor Pinuccio Sciola also make a special appearance on the tracklisting.

Getting to work with Tony Kim on “Stand Your Ground” is something I’ve dreamed about for quite a while – I am a really big fan of Dance With The Dead, and I think his shredding lead adds a fourth dimension to the song that makes it completely unique.

I’m truly grateful to Tony and I am looking forward to sharing the stage with Dance With The Dead at Synthzilla 2, where I’ll debut the new tracks live and once again meet with the beautiful crowd of Lyon!

Horror Documentary ‘The Frankenstein Complex’ Coming to UK Next Month

bloody disgusting - Thu, 09/01/2016 - 10:17

About a year ago, Brad posted a story about the creature FX documentary The Frankenstein Complex, which looks at the world of FX makers and the creations they produce.

The documentary includes interviews with some of the very best in the business, including Rick Baker, Joe Dante, Greg Nicotero, Guillermo del Toro, and more.

From King Kong to Avatar, from Star Wars to Lord of the Rings, movie creatures have never been as popular as they are today! Yet the art of creating monsters for the big screen is as old as cinema itself… From early experiments with apes and dinosaurs to the birth of special make-up effects, from the pinnacle of animatronics to the digital revolution, ‘Creature Designers: The Frankenstein Complex’ explores a century of human imagination, cinematic thrills and wonders.

Based on interviews of all the greatest artists in the genre and hours of exclusive footage from classics like Gremlins, The Abyss, Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, Starship Troopers, Spider-Man 2 …, the documentary focuses on the stunning relationship between the creatures and their makers: like modern Frankensteins, special effects wizards create life out of raw material, art and complex machinery.

The Frankenstein Complex is coming to UK home video on Monday, October 3rd. Pre-orders are available via Amazon.

Sons of Balaur Are Desperate and “Van Helsing Must Die”! (Premiere)

bloody disgusting - Thu, 09/01/2016 - 10:00

We’ve teamed up with Oslo, Norway black metal supergroup Sons of Balaur to bring you the exclusive first listen to the track “Van Helsing Must Die”, which I felt was an extremely appropriate and relevant track for a multitude of reasons. The song, which comes from the band’s upcoming album Tenebris Deos, is a viciously fierce yet highly entertaining slice of kvlt black metal and it’s plainly obvious that these guys are highly talented metalheads who share a passion for horror. I’d be all about cracking a beer (or ten) with these fine gentlemen!

Here’s where things get really fun: The members of the band are actually characters in a comic series called Realm of the Damned, which is a post-apocalyptic story about a descendent of, you guessed it, Abraham Van Helsing, who must take up arms against the forces of evil after an ancient foe awakens in the depths of the forests of Norway. I’m guessing you can put two and two together and figure out who that evil is, yes?

Tenebris Deos marks the band’s return to the metal world. It was 15 years ago that we last heard from them, so their reappearance is very much something of import! The band elect to keep their identities secret, giving only their first names and roles: Tomas (vocals, guitar), Markus (bass), Kristoffer (guitar), and Lars (drums).

You can pre-order Tenebris Deos, which comes out October 14th, via Season of Mist.

Another Day, Another “American Horror Story ?6” Teaser

bloody disgusting - Thu, 09/01/2016 - 09:49

At this point I find myself wondering if FX has a hard drive that is packed to the brim with random creepy videos that can be used willy nilly for upcoming seasons of “American Horror Story“. It certainly feels like there are an endless amount of them, what with a new promo coming out pretty much every day for the past few weeks.

Anyways, a new promo for the show has been released and this one is all about making you hate dolls more than you already probably should. This isn’t some Toy Story doll coming to life when you’re not around. Nope, this is some Krampus type shit where the doll’s mouth is a gaping maw of pure nightmares. Happy Thursday.

Sarah Paulson joins Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Romika Annabell Osorio. We’re still waiting to hear if Angela Bassett, Denis O’Hare, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, Cheyenne Jackson or Finn Wittrock will return.

“American Horror Story” returns to FX on September 14th.

Bret “The Hitman” Hart to Star in ‘Tales From the Dead Zone’

bloody disgusting - Thu, 09/01/2016 - 09:31

Many wrestlers have lent their talents to the horror genre and have done fairly well! Look at Roddy Piper in They Live, Mark Henry in Incarnate, Kane in See No Evil and Hulk Hogan in Mr. Nanny. Okay, that last one might be a bit of a stretch but you can’t tell me this poster isn’t a little bit terrifying. Now another superstar is moving from the squared circle onto the silver screen to bring a dash of “badass-ness” to the horror genre: Bret “The Hitman” Hart!

Hart will be starring in Barry J. Gillis’ Tales From the Dark Zone, which follows, “…a Medical Examiner who imagines how victims of a horrible car crash, may have lived their lives.” The ex-wrestler will play “…Private Investigator Tom Jenkings, a one man wrecking crew, who doesn’t always play by all of the rules.

Kim Sonderholm will play the medical examiner, a role that he seems to be excited for. “I also like playing this type of tailor made role, so to speak. The Medical Examiner’s mind is twisted from seeing so much death on the job. So he’s got quite a vivid imagination that tends to run wild.

The film is expected to be released in late 2017.

‘Don’t Breathe’ Score Coming to Vinyl From Invada

bloody disgusting - Thu, 09/01/2016 - 09:13

While Fede Alvarez’s Don’t Breathe was exhilarating in countless ways, I think it would be criminally remiss to not give a lot of credit to composer Roque Baños‘ incredible score. Looking at how everything was put together reveals that deep thought and ingenuity went into creating something deeply unsettling and just as effective as Baños’ previous work with Alvarez on Evil Dead.

The folk over at Blumhouse revealed that the score will be coming to CD and vinyl later this year, with Lakeshore tackling a CD release and Invada Records pushing the album out on vinyl just in time for Halloween. Lakeshore’s CD will be coming out October 14th while Invada’s vinyl, which will come on 2xLP red/orange swirl, will ship Halloween weekend as a mail order exclusive. A retail version of the vinyl, which will be pressed on 2xLP orange wax, will come out November 25th.

Three teens who get away with perfectly planned home robberies have set their sights on one last payout that will get them out of crime forever. Their target: a reclusive blind man with millions of dollars in hiding. But as soon as they break into his home, the tables are turned and they find themselves trapped and fighting for survival against a psychopath with secrets of his own.

Directed by Fede Alvarez, who co-wrote the film with Rodo Sayagues, Don’t Breathe stars Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, Daniel Zovatto, and Stephen Lang.

‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey’ Had a Very Different Ending (Exclusive)

bloody disgusting - Thu, 09/01/2016 - 09:02

It’s the 25th anniversary of Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the memorable follow up to Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.

Directed by Peter Hewitt, and featuring a legendary role for William Sadler, this genre comedy broke the mold of sequels by doing something completely different than the first film; in fact, it nearly removed all aspects of time travel. What’s even more of a shocker is that there was even less, according to Hewitt.

Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves return as Bill and Ted, respectively, in a film where evil robots are sent from the future to kill the dynamic duo before they can win the Battle of the Bands. They end up in Hell, coming face-to-face with Satan, as well as their fears incarnate. After challenging Death (Sadler) to a duel, the duo are taken to Heaven where they ask God for help in stopping “the evil robot us’.” They’re directed to an alien being by the name of Station, who builds two “Good” robots to save the day, all which takes place on stage at Battle of the Bands.

The script was originally titled “Bill & Ted Go to Hell,” and unsurprisingly there was a lot more Hell in the screenplay. In fact, Bogus Journey trading cards, an accompanying comic book, and even trailers, provided proof of a deleted scene in which the creatures from Hell come to Earth to attack Bill and Ted.

Jon Barkan and myself caught up with both Hewitt and Sadler at the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival in which they confirmed the existence of such a scene, while also revealing that the entire ending was reshot. While there’s always been chatter of deleted scenes, we were completely unaware that the entire ending of Bogus Journey was retooled, leaving us wondering what the original cut looked like.

When asked about the deleted scene in which Bill and Ted are being chased by their worst fears, Hewitt dropped the bomb: “It wasn’t a scene, it was the entire ending of the movie. It was a different ending.”

“You cut out big scenes in the movie?” a surprised Sadler interrupted.

“Yeah, the whole end.

“Evil Bill and Ted open their chests and out come these strange cylinders that start to bubble and turn into something,” explains Hewitt. “Then, Bill and Ted arrive at the auditorium, the Battle of the Bands, and then their worst fears incarnate arrive. So, a giant easter bunny arrives and attacks them, granny arrives, Colonel Oats attacks them, and then I can’t remember…”

“Do they ever do the Battle of the Bands?” asks Sadler.

“Yeah…yeah,” Hewitt confirms.

“They save the babes…” Sadler notes.

“But then the ending…we tested it,” Hewitt explains, “’cause the film was shot really quickly and then came out a couple of months later; suddenly it was like we’re six weeks from opening and needed a new ending. So, the whole ending of Bill and Ted building ‘Good’ robots to defeat the ‘Bad’ robots, that was a new ending; and all the concert stuff was new. Death was in it, but by that time we were finding anything and everything for you [talking to Sadler] to do.”

A quick search on Google and you’ve find script and video evidence, along with other deleted sequence such as Evil Bill and Ted unzipping to reveal they’ve switched bodies. And while we’ve always known about this chase sequence, we were completely unaware that the entire finale was reshot. This creates so many questions that I wish I were able to ask Hewitt now… If there were no “Good Bill and Ted Robots”, did they ever go to Heaven, and if so, why? Was Station in it? What did they do? Was there any mention of time travel? How did they defeat the Evil Robots and their worst nightmares?

I thought our interview with Hewitt would finally close the door on so many rumors that have persisted over the past 25 years, only it’s perpetuated them even more. I can’t help but wonder what this movie looked like until the reshoots… and with Shout Factory releasing the films on Blu-ray later this month, I expect some new info to be included on it. Too bad the footage allegedly is hard to come by, and Hewitt didn’t take part in the new commentary tracks. This is it folks, probably one of the final interviews with Hewitt regarding Bogus Journey…at least until the 30th anniversary.

These Clips From ‘The Arrival’ Defy Gravity

bloody disgusting - Thu, 09/01/2016 - 09:00

Tell them how I am defying gravity! I’m flying high, defying gravity!“*

Two clips from the upcoming sci-fi thriller The Arrival have crash landed on the internet and they really drive home the claustrophobia and oddness that the film is going to offer.

The first clip shows the science team entering a spaceship which seemingly has a gravity of its own, drawing them up into its bowels. The second clip shows Amy Adams removing her hazmat suit because she realizes the aliens need to see her as clearly as possible.

When mysterious spacecrafts touch down across the globe, an elite team – lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.

Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy, Sicario) directs Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker in the film, which comes out November 11th, 2016.

Thanks to the folk over at The Playlist for the find!

Erotic Horror ‘Mai-Chan’s Daily Life’ Releasing This Month

bloody disgusting - Thu, 09/01/2016 - 08:10

Kino Lorber and Redemption announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Mai-Chan’s Daily Life – The Movie: Bloody Carnal Residence, based on the popular manga by Waita Uziga which was published as part of the infamous euro guro/erotic grotesque subgenre and takes violence fetishism to shocking new levels. Release is scheduled for September 20, 2016.

I’m not familiar with this manga at all, but this movie looks so…bizarre. Regardless of how good this film is I have to imagine it’s going to be one you won’t soon forget. Just watch the trailer and judge for yourself.

Based on the popular Manga by Waita Uziga, MAI-CHAN’S DAILY LIFE is a diabolical dark comedy that takes fetish violence to shocking new extremes. A young woman, Miyako (Akane Miyako) responds to an advertisement for a live-in maid, and is given a job alongside the playfully alluring Mai-chan (Koshi Ann). Miyako quickly learns that housecleaning is the least of her duties, as the master (Maruyama Shogo) and his wife (Roman Soako) use the maids as toys in their unbridled erotic fantasies.

Since Mai-chan possesses the uncanny ability to recover from any injury, no matter how severe, every violent desire is indulged, and Miyako soon finds herself actively involved in Mai-chan’s horrific destruction (and miraculous resurrection).

Working together, they try to lure out and kill the Tall Man, all the while avoiding his minions and a deadly silver sphere.

The third season of “Salem” dawns with the triumph of the witches’ plan to remake the New World by bringing the devil to earth and making Salem his capital.  But the devil is a liar, and instead of a New World free from murderous Puritan hypocrisy, his own plan will bring nothing but death and slavery with the ultimate aim of leading humanity to destroy itself.  And there’s only one person on earth who can beat the devil — the very witch that birthed him, his mother, Mary Sibley.  The only problem is—she’s dead.  Or is she?

“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery (Amateur Night, “Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”) as Mary Sibley, Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”) as Captain John Alden, Seth Gabel (“Arrow,” “Fringe”) as Cotton Mather, Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Tituba, Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”) as Anne Hale, Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) as Mercy Lewis, Iddo Goldberg (“Mob City”) as Isaac Walton, Joe Doyle (“Raw”) as Baron Sebastian Marburg, Oliver Bell (“The Saint”) as Mary’s son. New this season is Samuel Roukin (“Turn) as The Sentinel.

Created and written by Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, “Salem” is executive produced by Braga, Simon, Kelly Souders, Brian Peterson and The Firm’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry.  The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios.

The Cure, Guns N Roses, and More Get the ‘Garbage Pail Kids’ Treatment

bloody disgusting - Wed, 08/31/2016 - 14:17

Growing up, getting something from Topps was an exciting moment. Candy, sports cards, collectibles… Whatever it was, I knew it was going to be something made with quality and care.

One of their products that horror fans are intimately acquainted with was their Garbage Pail Kids line, which was a mockery of Cabbage Patch Kids and ultimately spawned a less than well received movie. Still, the cards themselves are still highly sought after and adored by horror and non-horror fans alike.

Now Topps has decided to mix the music world with the aesthetic of Garbage Pail Kids by taking highly recognizable bands and giving them a gruesomely playful artistic facelift! Bands like The Cure, Guns N Roses, and more have been blessed with this ridiculous yet endearing design. Check a few out below and then snag prints directly from Topps.

Cheers to StereoGum for the find!

‘The History of Metal and Horror’ Goes for Crowdfunding Round 2

bloody disgusting - Wed, 08/31/2016 - 13:51

Back in September of 2015, I posted about a documentary titled The History of Metal and Horror, which goes over the many various ways that the two genres have collided, mixed, collaborated, and fed off each other. It’s a topic that I hold near and dear to my heart because I’m a longtime metalhead as well as a lifelong horror fan, so this is something that is very fascinating to me!

However, it seems that director Mike Schiff’s first foray on Indiegogo didn’t go too well as the crowdfund only raised about a quarter of its $50,000 goal. But that isn’t stopping Schiff, who is on a mission to bring this documentary to the masses. That’s why a second campaign has been launched with a goal of $38,000. It’s still over three times what was originally raised but he’s got two months to make magic happen, which I think is feasible.

The documentary interviewed people from both industries, “…such as Alice Cooper, John Carpenter, Kirk Hammett, Kane Hodder, Dave Mustaine, Bill Moseley, Corey Taylor, Sid Haig, and over 40 more“. There’s also chats with Tom Savini, Claudio Simonetti, Doug Bradley, Bill Moseley, and other horror and metal icons.

Ever have that feeling that something is crawling on you? You look and there’s nothing there but your hair stands on end and your skin feels like little legs are pitter-pattering across your pores.
