bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 17:00

Japanese metal group Dir En Grey have released a clip of “Red Soul” from their upcoming live DVD/Blu-Ray Tour13 Ghoul, which comes out April 23rd. The clip shows the band performing behind a large screen as well as a look at singer Kyo’s ghoulish makeup, something he designed himself. The track comes from the band’s 2008 album Uroboros and you can watch it below.

Tour13 Ghoul is a celebration of 15 years of Dir En Grey (since the release of their first album Gauze). It follows the band as they toured their home country of Japan as well as their month-long American tour. The band’s last studio album was 2011′s Dum Spiro Spero.

Amazing 'Left 4 Dead' Cosplay Needs More Boomer

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 16:36

We don’t often see Left 4 Dead cosplay, and that’s a shame, because I refuse to die until I see someone tackle the Boomer. Sadly, the cosplay I have for you today doesn’t feature everyone’s favorite bile-loving fat guy — but it’s no less awesome. Instead, we have the Witch and Hunter, both of which have been captured brilliantly thanks to photographer Mike Rollerson, whose Silent Hill work I’ve featured here before. Read on for more.

New Only Lovers Left Alive Poster Lounges Around

Dread Central - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 16:19

The official poster for Jim Jarmusch's vampire tale Only Lovers Left Alive (review) has been let out of the coffin, and we have every toothy pixel of it right here for you to chew on. Check it out!

Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tilda Swinton as Eve, a grungy but erudite vampire who's married to a forlorn vampire musician, Adam, played by Tom Hiddleston. Several-hundred-year-old Adam (of Biblical fame) has been living quite happily ever since being expelled from the Garden of Eden--that is, until the 21st century came along with its excesses and greed and pushed him into a full-flung existential crisis.

He cracks and orders a wooden bullet to kill himself.

Adam and Eve are not about blood-sucking and murder but are refined lovers of literature, science, music, and learning in general. When Eve's estranged sister (Mia Wasikowska) "drinks" Ian, a friend, to death, Eve tells her off, saying that in the 21st century people won't understand such barbarity. It's not like they can just dump the bodies in the Thames with the tuberculosis sufferers like in old times, she says. Now, in the 21st century, they get their blood from the transfusion section of a hospital. Alongside this, John Hurt plays a vampire Christopher Marlowe, who's still bitter that Shakespeare became more famous.

In the film vampires elegantly cover their mouths and have a strange ritual with gloves that goes unexplained, but at heart it's the story of Adam and Eve, who try to rekindle their love despite living in different places, he in Detroit and she in Tangiers. It is as touching as it is odd. The love story between immortal beings also raised philosophical questions for leading man Hiddleston, who said playing Adam was a "fascinating prospect" — a chance to break away from his more conventional superhero roles like Loki in Marvel Studios' Thor films. "The idea of exploring love in the context of immortality — is (it) a blessing because it recurs, and what does that do to your commitments?" he said.

It took Jarmusch seven years to find a backer, and he explains why: "I wanted to make a vampire love story... The reason it took so long was that no one wanted to give us the money. It's getting more and more and more difficult for films that are maybe a little unusual or not predictable or not satisfying the expectations of everybody — which is the beauty of cinema, discovering new films of all forms."

Look for it in theaters on April 11th

Several rather creepy photos and a preview of next week's Episode 2.04 of "Hannibal," entitled "Takiawase," have arrived; and if you're curious as to just what the heck "Takiawase" means, we've already looked it up for you so read on!

We're not sure what it has to do with the episode, but according to Dictionary Central (how could we not source them with a name like that?), it's "a mixture of firm vegetable pieces... each cooked separately in separate pans until al dente, mixed with fried cubes of tofu and flavoured with a light soya sauce."

Knowing Dr. Lecter, we're going to assume he'll be frying up something other than tofu.

"Hannibal" Episode 2.04 - "Takiawase" (airs 3/21/14; 10-11PM)
BEVERLY FINDS A CLUE ABOUT THE MURAL KILLER THAT SENDS HER DOWN A LIFE-THREATENING PATH - Our team is called in when a body is found in a meadow, the cranial cavity converted into a beehive.

Meanwhile, Beverly Katz (Hettienne Park) continues to work on the mural killer case, secretly consulting with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) to decipher the killer’s human tapestry. Will insists that the killer was put in the mural by Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and urges her to prove that Hannibal is the real Chesapeake Ripper and Copycat Killer.

Also starring Aaron Abrams, Scott Thompson, Amanda Plummer, and Raúl Esparza.

Sip Some Blood and Relax To the 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Poster

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 10:20

Easily one of my favorite films of the year, and quite possibly one of my all-time fav vampire films is Jim Jarmusch’s love story Only Lovers Left Alive, which features remarkable performances by Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska.

Open in theaters April 11, Sony Pictures Classics released the official theatrical one-sheet that really sets the mood. Ryan Daley liked, but didn’t love the film. Evan Dickson more so agreed with me.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

Killer Be Killed (Feat. Members Of Mastodon, Soulfly, Dillinger Escape Plan) Release Two Songs

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 10:00

The new metal supergroup known as Killer Be Killed, which features Troy Sanders (Mastodon), Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), and Dave Elitch (ex-The Mars Volta), have released two songs from their upcoming self-titled debut album, which comes out May 13th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The tracks, “Wings Of Feather And Wax” and “Face Down”, can be heard below.

Listening to the two tracks, I’m really intrigued. It’s metal with enough of a twist to keep me captivated. Also, the three vocal approach gives a lot of depth and diversity to the music. It also helps that each of these guys are 100% fantastic at their respective styles, so combining them creates a very unique sound.

'Dark Souls II' Review: It Hurts So Good

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 23:05

From Software struck gold with Demon’s Souls, the 2009 dark fantasy RPG that would eventually spawn a franchise–as well as a much-needed name change. It was critically acclaimed for its unforgiving nature, beautifully realized world and innovative multiplayer. It should have become a cult hit; a critical darling with a steep learning curve that seemed destined to be embraced by a loving, albeit small, community of diehard fans. Instead, its sequel saw similar reviews and significantly better sales.

This week saw the release of Dark Souls II — find out if it continues this series’ success in my review.

I feel like I should start off a review of a game like this with a disclaimer, of sorts.

For the unfamiliar, like its predecessors, Dark Souls II is a very difficult game. It’s challenging not only in terms of its combat or because of the unpredictability of the enemies it throws at you, but because of a handful of systems that have been woven into each other, gracefully, if not mercifully, to make this a difficult game to sit through.

And much like its predecessors, if you’re willing to let it teach you, it can also become one of the most rewarding gaming experiences you’ll ever have.

Unfortunately, its world may prove too harsh for some. This is a game that doesn’t rely on the annoying hand-holding that so many other modern AAA games employ. Instead, it teaches its players to adapt, mostly through death, to overcome. Believe me, you will die, and you will die often. If that doesn’t sound like something you’d like to endure, this might not be the game for you.

If you’re patient, you’ll soon realize that every seemingly malicious decision on the designers’ part was made to make this game truly unforgettable.

There’s a lot to love about Dark Souls II, from the systems that have been intricately tied into each other to the way it practically forces you to explore its world. With so many linear games inundating retail shelves everyday, it’s nice to play one that wants you to shy away from the beaten path, for that’s where its treasures lie. It’s often the more dangerous path that reaps the greatest rewards.

If hidden loot doesn’t serve as significant enough motivation for you, it’s gorgeous world should do the trick. There’s an impressive attention to detail that permeates every environment. The only thing that holds it back would be the technical limitations of the platforms. This series is beginning to show its age, and that fact isn’t aided by the impressions made by the still very new next-gen consoles.

But visuals aren’t everything, and I doubt you’ll care about murky textures when a giant monster is trying its best to tear you apart. Death is something that has to be embraced in this series. I went through one controller–almost two–while I was working on my Demon’s Souls review. It takes some getting used to, sure, but it’s a part of the game. Everything wants to kill you, so it’s up to you to make that as difficult a feat as possible.

Thankfully, there are tools in place to help, and most of them revolve around this game’s incredibly innovative multiplayer. One of which is the clever ability to write messages that show up in other players’ worlds. If there’s a trap or a particularly tough fight ahead, you can let others know by scrawling it on the floor. These player-written warnings have saved my life more than a few times. A warning: not every player has good intentions. Some may fool other players with false messages. Be wary.

If you need something a bit more substantial than that, you can always call upon other players by summoning them into your world. If a boss refuses to die, getting a few friends to help take it down is almost always an option. Though, like every facet of this game, this too, comes with a darker purpose. If your world is open to aid, it’s also open to invasion. If a malevolent player wants to take a break from their world to wreak havoc in yours, they can choose to temporarily invade another world with the singular goal of eliminating its player.

For fans of the series who are more interested in knowing what’s been changed, Dark Souls 2 has seen a number of tweaks, all of which I’m happy to say have positive effects on the experience as a whole.

One fundamental difference is player health. In the previous game, if you were hurt, consuming an Estus Flask would remedy the situation. Now, Estus Flasks take a backseat to Lifegems, which gradually replenish your health. Estus Flasks are still in the game, and those too have seen tweaks. Now they can be improved by collecting shard fragments that increase the number of times they can heal with each use.

Humanity is no longer measured by a numeric rating. When your character dies, they become Hallowed. Each death from there on reduces the character’s maximum health, with the maximum reduction resting at 50%. The only way to reverse this is by consuming a rare Human Effigy, which grants Humanity after being burned at a bonfire.

The classes have been refined, resulting in the removal of the Hunter, Pyromancer, Thief, and Wanderer. We’re left with the Warrior, Knight, Swordsman, Bandit, Cleric, Sorcerer, Explorer, and Deprived — the basic, no-frills class. It’s still a well-rounded cast, though as a former Pyromancer in Dark Souls, there is a fireball shaped hole in my heart this time around.

While there are likely to be “Dark Souls 1.5″ jokes to be made about this entry, Dark Souls 2 does more than enough to warrant another trip to its twisted world. It takes everything the last two games did well and does all of it better. The controls, character customization, world, and enemies are more polished, deep, and thoughtful. This is a game that’s about defeat as much as it is triumph, and it favors those who seek exploration, discovery, and horror, all of which can be found here in equal amounts.

The Final Word: Don’t let its last-gen exclusivity fool you — Dark Souls II is a masterpiece. It’s beautiful, horrifying, unforgiving, and is easily one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had during my gaming career. Just make sure you know going in that this is going to hurt.

Casper Van Dien to Beat Off a Supernatural Being in June

Dread Central - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 19:59

Variety reports that Van Dien and Addy Miller (“The Walking Dead”) have joined supernatural thriller June, shooting later the month in Louisiana.

Victoria Pratt, Eddie Jemison, Theodora Greece, and Lance Nichols have also been cast.

Kennedy Brice (“The Walking Dead”) stars as a 9-year-old orphan who shares her body with an ancient supernatural being whose mission is to destroy mankind to allow nature to prevail on earth.

L. Gustavo Cooper (Velvet Road) will direct from a script he co-wrote with Sharon Y. Cobb. Gregor Habsburg (Hellbenders), Jacquelyn Frisco (Tell-Tale), and Duane A. Sikes will produce with Raven Banner Entertainment partners Michael Paszt, James Fler, and Andrew T. Hunt.

Film Adaptation Planned for Nicholas Pekearo's Posthumously Published The Wolfman

Dread Central - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 19:44

Exactly seven years ago, NYC auxiliary police officer Nicholas Pekearo and his partner, Yevgeniy Marshalik, were shot and killed in the line of duty. At the time Pekearo was just getting his footing as a novelist, and now his posthumously published The Wolfman is heading to the big screen.

Per Deadline, Macmillan Entertainment and Everest Entertainment Group are developing a feature film from The Wolfman, a novel written by Nicholas Pekearo in 2008 and published by Tor Books in 2009.

The story tells of a lost soul who happens to be a werewolf. He struggles with his affliction until he decides to focus on the bad guys who deserve it, including a serial killer preying on young girls.

Pekearo, a crime and comic book buff, was shot six times by the crazed gunman who also killed his partner. Both were unarmed. For more info on what transpired, check out this story in the New York Times from March 16, 2007.

Macmillan Entertainment is the film and TV arm of Macmillan Publishers. Its head, Brendan Deneen, and Everest Entertainment Group’s Sean Davis are working closely with Pekearo’s mother, Iola Latman, to shape the werewolf story for the screen. Davis also runs the management company The Phoenix Organization.

“I read The Wolfman shortly after its release and couldn’t get the character of Marlowe Higgins and the world Pekearo created out of my head,” Davis said. “This is not your typical werewolf piece, and I was amazed by how much new territory he uncovered in this first novel. I have high hopes for this as it seems there is now finally a market for pieces like this, seeing the success of brilliant limited series such as 'True Detective,' and audiences now have a hunger for out of the box anti-heroes. In talking with those around him while he was alive, it was Nicholas’ hope to see this turned into a series, whether it was film or television, taking a similar journey to the one Bruce Banner did in The Incredible Hulk. Having died a hero’s death trying to protect people while chasing down a madman while he was unarmed, I hope Nicholas’ voice as a writer finally gets the attention it deserves and the journey he started with Marlowe continues.”

The book's synopsis follows; look for more on the adaptation as it comes.

Synopsis:
Marlowe Higgins has had a hard life. Since being dishonorably discharged after a tour in Vietnam, he's been in and out of prison, moving from town to town, going wherever the wind takes him. He can’t stay in one place too long--every full moon he kills someone.

Marlowe Higgins is a werewolf. For years he struggled with his affliction, until he found a way to use this unfortunate curse for good--he only kills really bad people. Settling at last in the small town of Evelyn, Higgins works at a local restaurant and even has a friend, Daniel Pearce, one of Evelyn's two police detectives.

One night everything changes. It turns out Marlowe Higgins isn’t the only monster lurking in the area. A fiendish serial killer, known as the Rose Killer, is brutally murdering young girls all around the county. Higgins targets the killer as his next victim, but on the night of the full moon, things go drastically wrong...

New 'Yaiba' Screenshots Showcase A Massive Boss Battle

bloody disgusting - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 19:12

I’m not sure what it is for real, but to me, the boss that takes up a majority of the screen-time in these new Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z screens looks like a living — and extremely pissed off — Mayan temple. I’m sure Yaiba will use his cyborg ninja skills to make ribbons of it, but it’s no less impressive.

Also, colors. Take note, developers: they exist, and they’re wonderful to look at.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z arrives on March 18 for Xbox 360 and PS3, with PC following on March 21.
