Yoshiaki Hirabayashi On What to Expect From the ‘Resident Evil’ HD Remake

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 14:00

Between the announcement of a remastered Resident Evil remake and a sequel to Revelations — both due early next year — this is a fine time to be a fan of one of gaming’s oldest horror franchises. We had the opportunity to briefly pick the brain of Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, Producer on the HD remake to see what we can expect from the game.

BD: How much of a straight-up remake will the Resident Evil Remake HD be? Will it be along the same lines as the Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition, in terms its improving upon the base game, or is there more to it?

The goal of this new edition of Resident Evil is to allow players to enjoy the thrills of the original GameCube version with improved visuals and sound. In that sense, I would describe it as similar to the recent PC version of RE4. We’ve taken the game apart and adjusted all the assets one by one to ensure high quality improvements to the visual and auditory experience.

BD: Could you give us a rundown of its major features?

The game will be available for download on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC in early 2015. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions display in 720p, while the PS4 and Xbox One iterations output in 1080p. The framerate is set to 30FPS. Resolution and frame rate info for the PC version will be discussed at a later date.

As you know, the original game output a 4:3 aspect ratio, but we’re enabling this new version to play in 16:9 as well. In that mode, the screen scrolls up and down as needed in relation to the character’s movement and location.

BD: We know the game will include an option to play it with an updated control scheme or the original “tank-like” layout – are there any other features that will be added to entice veterans of the series?

For starters, there is the new control scheme option that allows players to take more direct control over the characters. Neither control scheme offers any advantage or disadvantage and which one you prefer largely boils down to a matter of taste. You can switch between the two control schemes in real time, so players who may be having difficulty with one method can try the other as the mood strikes. We have also added widescreen compatibility and remastered the audio to 5.1 standards.

BD: For those who played the GameCube REmake, will this edition get any new content that wasn’t in the GC version? Stuff like new areas, weapons, puzzles, etc.

The original GameCube version of the game is so good that we wanted to stay true to the core content. There aren’t any new enemies or story additions for that reason. However, the widescreen compatibility, new control scheme, and other features certainly bring something new to the table.

BD: How many achievements/trophies are we looking at? The HD ports of Resident Evil 4 and Code: Veronica each had 12, but Revelations had 50 – which end of the spectrum will this game land on?

The volume of achievements is much closer to what Resident Evil Revelations had to offer. We’re trying really hard to offer compelling and challenging achievements for this title.

BD: Has a price point been determined yet?

This is still TBD. Obviously, we’ll let you know as soon as we’re able to confirm.

BD: Are there any plans to integrate ResidentEvil.net support so fans can unlock exclusive concept art or in-game items as they do with Resident Evil 6 and Resident Evil Revelations?

This is still TBD. We’ll let you know as soon as we’re able to confirm more details.

BD: Many fans see this as an important step in returning Resident Evil to its roots in survival horror; has this game (or will it) influence the path the next Resident Evil takes in terms of it’s being more action or horror oriented?

I’m focused on this title for now so I can’t really see into the future to see what effect this title may or may not have on future developments of the series. What I can say is that the survival horror element has always been and will doubtless continue to be a hugely important element to the series.

I think the audience of RE fans has grown a great deal since this title initially debuted. This remastered version should provide a great opportunity for users to relive the horror that spawned the series.

We’d like to thank Yoshiaki Hirabayashi for taking the time to chat with us. The new-and-improved Resident Evil REmake is slated to release early next year, alongside Resident Evil Revelations 2.

Cullen Bunn Reimagines The Werewolf in New Vertigo Series “Wolf Moon”

bloody disgusting - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 12:45

We’ve got some exclusive news to share with you today. Cullen Bunn (Sinestro, Magneto) has been given the reigns to an all new Vertigo series that will reimagine werewolf lore as we know it. Entitled “Wolf Moon” the series sees a man’s family slaughtered by the wolf. Sounds typical, but I assure you it’s anything but.

WOLF MOON is a horrific werewolf hunt unlike any other. When Dillon Chase’s family is slaughtered by the wolf, his life changes forever.  Dillon sets out to destroy the creature, but he soon learns that lycanthropy is far more insidious than the legends ever said. With each full moon, he draws closer to the monster—and with each full moon, he becomes more aware that in order to stop the wolf, he must kill a human being and become a fearful monster himself.

Written by Cullen Bunn with art by Jeremy Haun and covers by Jae Lee, WOLF MOON is a miniseries you’re not going to want to miss.

Cullen puts his on terrible spin on everything we know and love about the beasts. And Bloody-Disgusting sat down to exclusively talk about the nature of this new type of werewolf.

Bloody Disgusting: You’ve certainly created your own take on the werewolf mythology with the host moving between people with each night, what motivated you to make such sweeping changes to something considered so sacred in horror?

Cullen Bunn: I love a good werewolf story, but I knew that if I was going to write one of my own, it needed to be a little different.

When it comes to werewolves, one of the things that is most interesting to me is that when the moon is not full, the afflicted person has to live with the repercussions of the horror they have inflicted upon those around them. Imagine that. You wake up one morning, having been plagued by vivid nightmares of running wild, of butchering people, only to realize that the nightmares were true. That kind of realization would rattle you to the core. The memory of the event would, itself, be transformative.

So, I wanted to explore that, but I didn’t want to see it from the point of view of a single person. That led me to the idea that the Wolf might “jump” from host to host with each cycle of the moon. That opened the door to see how different people might be affected in different ways.

That idea also led me to the idea of tying some very cool folklore elements into the story. Those elements will become key as the series progresses.

Bloody Disgusting: Tell me a little bit about your main character Dillon Chase what motivates him other than revenge, and what is his fatal flaw?

Cullen Bunn: Dillon has a strong connection to the Wolf. The creature cost him everything he held dear. As much as he says he’s trying to put the creature down so it doesn’t hurt anyone else, he’s really on the hunt for revenge. His thirst for revenge, though, is tempered by all the people he has met whose lives were changed by the creature, both those who were afflicted and those who were victims in one way or another. To kill the Wolf, he has to kill the host, and he might not be willing to do so.

Bloody Disgusting: The idea of becoming a monster to defeat a monster is a common theme in horror, what makes “Wolf Moon” different?

Cullen Bunn: Dillon doesn’t want to become a monster. He has seen his world come crashing down around him, and he feels as if he might be able to regain his life and some semblance of humanity if he can rid the world of this creature. But he struggles with the drastic steps he might need to take to accomplish his goals. That is not to say there are not “monsters” in the book other than the werewolf. There are. You see one of them at the end of the first issue, but that is a mystery that will be built up over the course of the series.

Early inks for Jae Lee’s Wolf Moon #1 cover.

Bloody Disgusting: How did you and Jeremy Haun work to create the look of the lycanthrope for the comic? How involved was your collaboration, and what unique touches does Jeremy bring to the world you created?

Cullen Bunn: While writing the script, I sent Jeremy a ton of images of wolves. We both wanted the creature to be “realistic” in terms of its animalistic features. We also wanted the creature to be a nightmarish physical powerhouse, so it’s a huge, incredibly violent monster. I feel like Jeremy really brought out the inhuman and supernatural qualities of the creature, especially in its eyes.

Bloody Disgusting: You’ve become the go-to guy for darker characters and stories lately, what are your sources of inspiration? What intrigues you about anti-hero’s? And would you even use that term to describe them?

Cullen Bunn: I’ve used the term “anti-hero” plenty, although I’m not sure it’s exactly right. In the case of this story, Dillon is a deeply flawed, deeply troubled hero who has a very difficult task ahead of him.

I’ve always felt like these darker stories are the truest representation of me as a writer. I think these are the stories that can surprise you. These are the tales that might provoke the most visceral emotional reaction.

Bloody Disgusting: What is your favorite type of horror, and what type of horror are you trying to tap into with “Wolf Moon?”

Cullen Bunn: I’m a fan of all types of horror. I have been since I was very young and would sneak downstairs to watch Hammer movies on the late show.

If you want to talk werewolves in particular, some of my favorite movies include American Werewolf in London, The Howling, and Dog Soldiers. Favorite books include Animals by Skipp and Spektor and Winter Kill by Mike Oliveri. And, of course, I loved the Werewolf By Night comic when I was a kid.

My favorite stories, whether we’re talking a psychological horror story, a ghost story, or a slasher gorefest, are those that let me connect to the would-be victims on an emotional level. I want to care about the characters so that it hurts more when they meet their terrible fate. That’s what I want to tap into with this piece.

That said, this is a violent story, and I definitely channeled some of the more gruesome aspects of my favorite horror tales. This is not for the weak of heart.

Bloody Disgusting:  What is Dillon Chase most afraid of now that he’s lost his family?

Cullen Bunn: He’s afraid of failure, maybe. This monster is especially hard to track and kill, and with each passing month more people suffer. The closer he gets to making a killing blow, the more the pressure nearly crushes him.

As he learns that he is not the only person hunting the wolf, though, he realizes there is something more that he needs to be scared of.

Bloody Disgusting: Finally, what terrifies you most about “Wolf Moon?” 

Cullen Bunn: The Wolf basically moves from one person to the next, seemingly without connection. That’s pretty scary to me. This isn’t a matter of getting cursed by gypsies. This isn’t a situation where you get bit and infected. One minute, you’re going about your life, the next minute, you’re slaughtering everyone around you.

Get Trapped by this Teaser for the It's Hell Getting Old Segment of Hellevator Man

Dread Central - Mon, 09/08/2014 - 12:45

Getting stuck in an elevator is scary enough, but doing so with a bunch of senior citizens? You can be sure filmmaker Patrick Rea piles on the spooky - plus a little silly - in this teaser for his "It's Hell Getting Old" segment of the Hellevator Man anthology.

Kansas City-based Rea's short stars Kip Niven (Jayhawkers, New Year’s Evil), Joicie Appell (Nailbiter), Victor Raider-Wexler (Minority Report), and Nancy Marcy. It was executive produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Michael Biehn, and Lony Ruhmann.

The script, written by Rea, deals with four elderly people trapped in an elevator on their way to their 50th Class Reunion, and one of them may have forgotten to take some important medication.

The film was shot in Kansas City, Missouri, and the director of photography was Hanuman Brown-Eagle.

Other segments include Vincent J. Guastini's “The Future Executive,” which centers around Devi (Sushi Girl’s Cortney Palm), a powerful young CEO who enters her office’s empty elevator for an important meeting as a gloved hand stops the doors from closing. Andy Mackenzie (Shoot ‘Em Up) plays Jack, a delivery man who follows Devi into the tiny space. The elevator doors part one more time for Liam (Donnie Darko’s James Duval), a mild-mannered office worker with an unrequited crush on Devi. A sudden power outage sets the stage for a nightmare ride ahead for the trio.

Scott Schirmer's "Tear" was also recently announced as was WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, aka Mankind, coming on board as the "Hellevator Man" and storyteller himself.

Look for more soon!

Going against the advice of his pastor, Billy follows his girlfriend into the world of secular entertainment, joining the local community theatre troupe. There, Billy is introduced to a whole new world, where his fellow thespians dabble in drugs, sexual perversion, and table-top gameplay. Yet, for all the newly minted depravities Billy encounters, none could prepare him for the darkest truth of them all: The theatre group is actually a front for a Satanic cult intent on raising Dracula from the grave! It’s a world where Sondheim is Satan, Broadway means blasphemy, and where taking the stage just might mean curtains... for your eternal soul.

From The Vicious Brothers, the creators of Grave Encounters, comes a different kind of encounter, one of EXTRATERRESTRIAL origin. Still reeling from her parents’ divorce, April (Daytime Emmy winner Brittany Allen) is dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods.

Lead by her boyfriend, played by Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter & The Half Blooded Prince, Pitch Perfect), the group venture out toward the crash site and discover the remnants of a ship from another planet along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive. The college friends soon find themselves caught in the middle of something bigger and more terrifying than anything they could ever imagine.
