ESP Guitars Unveils The Pointiest Guitar I’ve Ever Seen

bloody disgusting - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 11:00

ESP Guitars in Japan have unveiled a guitar themed after the popular video game Monster Hunter in celebration of the game’s 10th anniversary. The guitar features a huge blade with several horns protruding from it, making it look like an incredibly painful instrument to play. Still, any hecklers in the audience would learn very quickly to keep their mouth shut.

The guitar has a price tag of 2,300,00 yen, which is just over $22150, before tax. So, I’m going to go ahead and say that anyone interested in this instrument is going to have do some serious real life grinding to get that much loot.

Check out the photos below to see this monstrosity.

Halloween Horror Nights 2014 - Hollywood Tickets On Sale Now!

Dread Central - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 11:00

Just a quick reminder that tickets are NOW AVAILABLE for Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood 2014! Don't wait! Be ahead of the curve! Make sure your throat is amongst the first to be placed lovingly on the chopping block.

From the Press Release
Tickets are now on sale for “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios Hollywood as Southern California’s leading Halloween event becomes “More Dead Than Ever,” expanding to 22 select nights with more mazes than ever, from Friday, September 19 through Sunday, November 2, 2014.

Tickets to this year’s event are available for purchase at Halloween Horror Nights.com, including a Front of Line ticket option that enables guests to enjoy priority access at each “Halloween Horror Nights” maze, Terror Tram and theme park attraction. Advance purchase is recommended as event nights will sell out.

“As the movie studio that invented the horror film genre, we hold ourselves to a very high standard in producing the best and most terrifying Halloween experience,” said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of “Halloween Horror Nights.” “Our ongoing collaboration with today’s most influential filmmakers and musicians, and movie and television horror properties, contributes to the authenticity of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and delivers one of the scariest, most compelling experiences anywhere. This year will be ‘More Dead Than Ever’ with more event nights and even more mazes, and we can’t wait.”

“Halloween Horror Nights” 2014 will feature a slate of all-new haunted attractions including, “The Walking Dead: The End of the Line,” inspired by Season 4 of AMC’s Golden Globe®-nominated and Emmy® Award-winning TV series. The bone-chilling maze will place guests at the heart of a harrowing journey to seek sanctuary at Terminus, an elusive destination that promises community for all. Mirroring the terror that befell the residents of the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by savage walkers, the experience will send guests fleeing from the fallen prison into unknown territory as they stage a desperate battle for survival against flesh-eating walkers and ruthless humans.

The engrossing television series will seep into other parts of Universal’s backlot with predatory walkers prowling the secluded wooded areas of the movie studio. “Terror Tram: Invaded by the Walking Dead” will take guests down the daunting path to Terminus, interspersed with landmarks and walkers from Season 4, including the “burned moonshine cabin,” “charred walkers” and “mud walkers.”

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez’s cult film and El Rey network’s acclaimed supernatural TV series, “From Dusk Till Dawn,” will debut at this year’s event in a new maze designed to thrust guests into its deviant world where they will encounter sordid mythological creatures known as “Culebras,” serpent-like vampires who have tormented the Earth for centuries.

Celebrated Grammy® Award-winning musician, SLASH, hailed as one of the 10 best electric guitar players of all time by Time magazine, is joining forces with Universal Studios Hollywood to compose the first-ever original score for the theme park’s hypnotizing new 3D maze, “Clowns 3D Music by SLASH.”
Other marquee mazes will include, “Dracula Untold: Reign of Blood,” a terrifying new haunted attraction based on Universal Pictures’ upcoming epic action-adventure; “AVP: Alien vs. Predator,” bringing together the most deadly species spawned from two blockbuster films; “An American Werewolf in London,” inspired by Universal Pictures’ Academy Award®-winning film, and “Face Off: In the Flesh,” featuring gruesome characters from Syfy’s hit TV series.

A series of unnerving scare zones will also infiltrate “Halloween Horror Nights,” terrorizing guests as they navigate the darkness from one terrifying maze to another, beginning with “The Purge: Anarchy,” inspired by Universal Pictures’ disturbing blockbuster thriller. “The Walking Dead: Welcome to Terminus” will awaken swarms of predatory walkers in a gruesome scare zone situated adjacent to the new “The Walking Dead” maze.

Additional scare zones will include, “Mask-a-Raid,” featuring hordes of blood thirsty cannibals masquerading as French aristocrats; “Dark Christmas,” a Pagan-themed area where demonic creatures hunt disobedient children and drag them to hell; and “Skullz,” based on the Native American legend of Wendigo, a malevolent supernatural half-beast monster with an insatiable appetite for human flesh.

As a complement to the nighttime event, Universal’s most popular rides and attractions will also be open to guests, including” Transformers: The Ride-3D,” “Jurassic Park—In the Dark,” “The Simpsons Ride” and “Revenge of the Mummy—The Ride.”

“Halloween Horror Nights” dates are as follows: September 19, 20, 26, 27, October 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 25, 26, 30, 31, and November 1, 2, 2014.

More info on Halloween Horror Nights is available at Halloween Horror Nights.com. Updates from Creative Director John Murdy can be found on Twitter, as he reveals a running chronicle of exclusive information.

    Rockin' Rock and Shock Announces Second Round of Guests for 11th Annual Event

    Dread Central - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 10:00

    Never ones to disappoint, Rock and Shock has just announced the second wave of guests who will be appearing at this year's horror/metal convention. In this round of celebs some new faces are named as well as some Rock and Shock favorites.

    Among the newest guests announced are Victoria Price, daughter of the iconic Vincent Price, who will be hosting a special presentation on her father's life. WWE Hall of Famer Rowdy Roddy Piper will be making his triumphant return to Worecester. They'll be joined by Dee Wallace, Jake Busey, Tiffany Shepis, Sarah French, and Joe Knetter.

    This line-up joins an already alluring celebrity list that includes John Ratzenberger, Jeffrey Combs, and Brad Dourif among others.

    More names will be announced in the upcoming weeks so be sure to visit the official Rock and Shock website, "like" Rock and Shock on Facebook and follow Rock and Shock on Twitter (@rockandshockusa).

    Tickets for Rock & Shock 2014 may be purchased at ticketfly.com, FYE stores, or at the Palladium box office.

    From the Press Release
    Vincent Price had one of the most distinctive voices in cinematic history. From portraying Roderick Usher in Poe's The House of Usher to performing his famed mid-song monologue in Michael Jackson's Thriller to starring in the original versions of The Fly, House on Haunted Hill and House of Wax, Price's voice quickly became synonymous with horror. Luckily for us, Price passed his incredible linguistic talents onto his daughter Victoria who is carrying on his legacy by becoming a popular public speaker in her own right. Victoria, along with her nephew, musician Jody Price, will be presenting a special one-off retrospective on her father's life and legacy at Rock & Shock 2014. The event will feature a panel presentation, behind-the-scenes pictures and invaluable information on the man behind the magical voice.

    In addition to Victoria and Jody Price, Rock & Shock will also be welcoming wrestling legend, podcaster and actor Roddy Piper to their 2014 lineup of guests. The WWE Hall of Famer is best known to horror audiences as the lead in John Carpenter's 1988 film They Live. Piper has recently lent his voice talents to the popular Cartoon Network series Adventure Time and to his podcast Piper's Pit on PodcastOne. Piper has also recently been seen in episodes of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" as well as the upcoming Tales of the Wicked Unseen, in which he stars alongside fellow horror vets Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley and Michael Berryman.

    Dee Wallace and Jake Busey will be joining the previously announced guest Jeffrey Combs for a reunion of the cast of Peter Jackson's cult classic The Frighteners. The 1996 horror-comedy starring Michael J. Fox has gone on to develop a huge cult following with many calling it one of the most underrated horror films of all-time. In addition to The Frighteners, Stone is best known for her roles in E.T., Cujo, The Howling and Critters, while Jake, eldest son of actor Gary Busey, is best known for his performances in Starship Troopers, Enemy of the State and his current role as Professor Aiden Tanner on Robert Rodriguez's "From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series".

    Victoria and Jody Price, Roddy Piper, Dee Wallace and Jake Busey will also be joined by Tiffany Shepis (Sharknado 2), Alex Vincent (Child's Play 1 & 2), Joe Knetter (Strip Club Slasher) and Sarah French (Shriek of the Sasquatch), as well as previously announced guests Brad Dourif (Child's Play, Halloween, The Lord of the Rings), John Ratzenberger (Motel Hell, Toy Story 1-3, TV's "Cheers"), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator, The Frighteners, Star Trek), Nivek Ogre (Skinny Puppy frontman, Repo! The Genetic Opera, The Devil's Carnival) and Fiona Dourif (Curse of Chucky, "True Blood", "Deadwood"). Performers set to take the Rock & Shock stage include King Diamond, Machine Head, Twiztid and many, many more!

    bloody disgusting - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 09:22

    Revenge Thriller ‘Cold In July’ Dated For Home Video

    bloody disgusting - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 09:18

    A man simply trying to protect his home and family commits a spur-of-the-moment act that will have unforeseen – and unimaginable – consequences in the simmering thriller Cold In July. The film, boasting a powerhouse cast, arrives on Blu-ray and DVD from IFC Films and MPI Media Group on September 30, 2014.

    How can a split-second decision change your life? While investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane (Dexter star Michael C. Hall in an affectingly vulnerable performance) puts a bullet in the brain of lowlife burglar Freddy. Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Richard soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when Freddy’s ex-con father, Ben (Sam Shepard, August: Osage County, The Right Stuff), rolls into town, hell-bent on revenge. But not all is as it seems in this seemingly peaceful community, and soon Richard’s life begins to unravel into a dark underworld of corruption and violence that will pit him against the most unlikely of foes.

    Co-starring Don Johnson (Django Unchained, Miami Vice) and Vinessa Shaw (Eyes Wide Shut, 3:10 to Yuma) and adapted from the Joe R. Lansdale novel by director Jim Mickle (Stake Land, We Are What We Are) and cast member Nick Damici (Stake Land), Cold In July is a pulpy Southern noir whose twists and turns continue to pile up right up to its shocking conclusion.

    The Parlour Trick Featured In ‘The Mill At Calder’s End’ Trailer

    bloody disgusting - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 09:00

    BD favorite The Parlour Trick has been featured in the trailer for the upcoming puppet gothic horror The Mill At Calder’s End. Their track “The Yellow Wallpaper” is heavily utilized throughout the 40-second teaser, which you can see below.

    Meredith Yayanos, who is half of The Parlour Trick, will be scoring this film. She co-scored the director’s previous short, The Cabinet of Victor Karloch, alongside Lustmord and Zoe Keating.

    The Mill At Calder’s End is, “…heavily influenced by the classic Hammer horror films of the 1960s and the films of Mario Bava…

    Director Kevin McTurk (creature effects artist and puppeteer on Jurassic Park 1, 2, & 3, King Kong, Hellboy 1 & 2) states:

    The Mill at Calder’s End is a gothic tale that will be told with the traditional Japanese theater puppetry technique known as bunraku. Each puppet figure is controlled by three (or more) puppeteers dressed in black and hidden behind each character. It is my goal to make a film that celebrates practical effects and therefore there will be almost no computer generated imagery in the final film. In my first film, The Narrative of Victor Karloch, I utilized several silent film era camera techniques, such as a shot of a miniature ship on a stormswept ocean (which, in fact, was made up of painted flowing garbage bags). I plan to continue to use many more of these techniques to give a hand crafted look to The Mill at Calder’s End.

    [Exclusive Excerpt] “Fringe – Sins of the Father”

    bloody disgusting - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 06:04

    I’ve never been a huge fan of Fringe. I understand the appeal, and I even enjoyed multiple ideas the series dealt with. (Hello Multiverse!) In any event I failed to follow through on my commitment to watch the entire series, and the whole thing feels like a daunting task at this point. However, Titan Books is making it easier for new, casual, and diehard fans alike to jump back into the world of Fringe with their new original novel “Fringe – Sins of the Father.”

    And thanks to the fine folks at Titan Books, I’ve got an exclusive preview to offer all of you.

    The adventure that awaits you next week:

    A fatal incident in Walter Bishop’s lab estranges his volatile son Peter. In Bangkok, Peter steals a briefcase containing a mysterious vial and becomes the target of a group willing to kill to get it back. Seeking answers, he becomes entangled with Ella Lachaux-—the woman behind  the lab disaster—and David Robert Jones, a terrorist whose goal is to create an army of shape-shifting killers.

    Uncover never-before-revealed secrets of the characters, leading to the creation of the government’s covert Fringe Division.

    In 2008, Peter Bishop is estranged from his father and running shady operations in Southeast Asia. His latest scam lands him in a life-or-death situation involving weird events beyond the ken of modern science. On the run, he finds himself pursued by strange
    specters of his past… and his future.

    The Fringe Division is summoned when the unimaginable occurs. Armed with experimental technology, special agent Olivia Dunham, “fringe” scientist Walter Bishop, and his son Peter Bishop investigate cases that lie beyond the realm of possibility.

    Dead Rising Feature Film for Crackle Finds a Director

    Dread Central - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 20:02

    The Wrap is reporting that Leprechaun: Origins director Zach Lipovsky has signed on to direct the previously announced Dead Rising film adaptation from Legendary Entertainment and Crackle.

    Sony's Crackle will give the 90-minute feature an exclusive digital release in the U.S. before the film receives a multi-platform release on SVOD, VOD, DVD, and TV while Content Media Corp. (Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn) will distribute both feature-length and episodic formats on international platforms.

    Dead Rising takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic -- with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage will all play a key role in the movie's story.

    The script will be written by Tim Carter, who will also produce the film alongside Tomas Harlan under their Contradiction Films banner (the same company that produced Mortal Kombat: Legacy). Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers, G.I. Joe) will executive produce.

    Radio Broadcast in ‘Silent Hills’ Demo Teases Aliens

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 19:57

    There’s no shortage of fan theories regarding Silent Hills right now. The game was creatively revealed through a demo for a fake horror game called P.T. at Gamescom last week. Because official details are still scarce, we’re forced to pick it apart for any clues that may have been hidden by Kojima and Co. YouTuber SirDaidv Gaming decided to do just that by translating a Swedish radio broadcast that plays during the demo, revealing the possibility of aliens having something to do with this game.

    The broadcast, which you can read or hear — your choice! — below, mentions a radio drama from 75 years ago. It also says they’re hear on earth, watching us. This is almost definitely a reference to the radio adaptation of The War of the Worlds, which scared the shit out of our grandparents back in 1938.

    Aliens aren’t new to Silent Hill, though their presence has been relegated to special endings for many of the games. I wouldn’t be surprised if Silent Hills will continue that tradition.

    Close your eyes.
    Let your ears listen to the radio.
    Do you hear my voice?
    Can you hear the screams of your own soul?
    Let us choose:
    My voice, which tells the future, or your tormented [struggles?].
    Well? What do you choose?
    You can choose.
    Your life. Your future!

    Wise as you are, you may already have noticed.
    As the radio drama from 75 years ago was the truth.
    They are here on our Earth.
    And they oversee and see all.
    Don’t trust the news.
    Don’t trust the police.
    They are already controlled by them.

    So has it been for 75 years now.
    Only [our master?] can keep them [at bay].
    You have a right.
    A right to become one of us.
    So welcome to our world.
    Very soon, the gates to a new dimension will open.

    ‘Dead Rising’ Movie Straight to Digital

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 18:57

    Sometimes you have to wonder if the suits behind a project even watch the previous directing efforts of filmmakers.

    Legendary Entertainment is enlisting Leprechaun: OriginsZach Lipovsky to direct the zombie survival movie Dead Rising for Crackle and executive producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, TheWrap reports.

    Leprechaun: Origins is super disappointing, which is what makes this such a bizarre hire. Alas, people deserve second chances, and maybe Lipovsky will deliver with this vidgame adaptation?

    Sony’s Crackle will give the 90-minute feature an exclusive digital release in the U.S. before the film receives a multi-platform release on SVOD, VOD, DVD and TV, while Content Media Corp. (“Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn”) will distribute both feature-length and episodic formats on international platforms.

    Set during an epic zombie outbreak that a mandatory government vaccine failed to stop, “Dead Rising” debuted on the Xbox 360 console in 2006 and has since spawned a video game franchise that has sold more than 6.5 million copies worldwide.

    Tim Carter wrote the script and will produce with Tomas Harlan via their Contradiction Films banner, which also produced Machinima’s successful digital series “Mortal Kombat: Legacy.”

    At the end of July author Anne Rice revealed her UK publisher, Chatto & Windus', artwork for the upcoming Prince Lestat; and it was, to say the least, rather underwhelming. Well, they listened to the fans and have modified it.

    Per Anne herself on Facebook: You may remember I recently unveiled the UK cover for Prince Lestat. Many of you liked the handsome young man on the cover but others commented he wasn’t the Lestat you saw when reading my books.

    My UK publishers have listened to your responses and designed a beautiful new typographical cover instead, which allows you to keep Lestat in your mind. It will be in a luxurious supermatt finish with my name embossed along with the title AND fronds, on the front, spine and back! I think it is gorgeous and powerful.

    We agree, Anne. Nice job, Chatto & Windus!

    Prince Lestat, the first of several upcoming new installments in The Vampire Chronicles, arrives in the US on October 28th and in the UK on October 30th.

    Synopsis:
    A stunning departure, a surprising and compelling return... From Anne Rice, perennial best seller, single-handed reinventor of the vampire cosmology—a new, exhilarating novel, a deepening of her vampire mythology, and a chillingly hypnotic mystery-thriller.

    “What can we do but reach for the embrace that must now contain both heaven and hell: our doom again and again and again...” —from The Vampire Lestat

    Rice once again summons up the irresistible spirit-world of the oldest and most powerful forces of the night, invisible beings unleashed on an unsuspecting world able to take blood from humans, in a long-awaited return to the extraordinary world of The Vampire Chronicles and the uniquely seductive Queen of the Damned, a long-awaited novel that picks up where The Vampire Lestat left off more than a quarter of a century ago to create an extraordinary new world of spirits and forces—the characters, legend, and lore of all The Vampire Chronicles.

    The novel opens with the vampire world in crisis... vampires have been proliferating out of control; burnings have commenced all over the world, huge massacres similar to those carried out by Akasha in The Queen of the Damned... Old vampires, roused from slumber in the earth, are doing the bidding of a Voice commanding that they indiscriminately burn vampire-mavericks in cities from Paris and Mumbai to Hong Kong, Kyoto, and San Francisco.

    As the novel moves from present-day New York and the West Coast to ancient Egypt, 4th century Carthage, 14th century Rome, the Venice of the Renaissance, the worlds and beings of all The Vampire Chronicles—Louis de Pointe du Lac; the eternally young Armand, whose face is that of a Boticelli angel; Mekare and Maharet; Pandora and Flavius; David Talbot, vampire and ultimate fixer from the secret Talamasca; and Marius, the true Child of the Millennia, along with all the other new seductive, supernatural creatures—come together in this large, luxuriant, fiercely ambitious novel to ultimately rise up and seek out who—or what—the Voice is and to discover the secret of what it desires and why...

    And, at the book’s center, the seemingly absent, curiously missing hero-wanderer, the dazzling, dangerous rebel-outlaw—the great hope of the Undead, the dazzling Prince Lestat...

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 17:25

    RADiUS-TWC is hoping to charm you into seeing Alex Aja’s Horns with these new images, most featuring Danielle Radcliffe with a set of demon horns. I like the pic of him charming a snake, the other of him with a pitchfork.

    Based on Joe Hills’ graphic novel of the same name, the film is slated for release on Halloween, October 31.

    Blamed for the murder of his girlfriend and ostracized by everyone he knows, a small-town guy (Daniel Radcliffe) awakens one morning to find he’s grown a pair of horns. Armed with the supernatural powers they possess, he sets out to find the true killer.

    Directed by Alexandre Aja (High Tension, Mirrors, Piranha 3D, The Hills Have Eyes) from Keith Bunin’s script, Horns stars Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner, Heather Graham, David Morse, Kathleen Quinlan, and James Remar.

    Bloody Disgusting’s Mike Pereira was a huge fan – read his review here – calling it “an audacious, wonderfully twisted romantic horror fantasy.”
