bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 16:33

A movie so awful that I couldn’t even get past Act I. Now you can turn it off in the comfort of your own home…

Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) portrays one of the most iconic horror legends of all time in the horror adventure I, Frankenstein (review), available on 3D Blu-ray (plus 2D Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD UltraViolet), along with DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet), Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View, May 13 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. This film will also be available on Digital HD May 2.

Also starring Bill Nighy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest), Yvonne Strahovski (TV’s “Chuck,” TV’s “Dexter”), Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, TV’s “Rake”), Jai Courtney (upcoming Divergent, A Good Day to Die Hard) and Kevin Grevioux (Underworld, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), I, Frankenstein was written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie (30 Days Of Night, G.I.

[BD Review] If 'Creep' Doesn't Scare The Sh*t Out Of You, You've Got A Problem

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 16:04

Creep starts out innocently enough, as most terrifying life death-inviting life mistakes do. And the fact that it’s able to escalate to a conclusion that’s as straight as any line can be, but still somehow retain the element of surprise along the way, speaks volumes about the impressive give and take performers and co-writers Patrick Brice (who also directed) and Mark Duplass achieve here.

The whole thing kicks off when Aaron (Brice) replies to a craigslist ad placed by Josef (Duplass), the only requirements of which are a camera and a day’s time to spare. Initially Josef comes across as the sort of goofy oversharer who just isn’t quite cut out for normal societal mores. Then we discover the ostensible reason for this oversharing – Josef is dying of cancer and wants to record a video diary to give to his unborn son. You know, like Michael Keaton in My Life.

As Aaron spends the day with Josef, who immediately begins needling away at any concept of personal space or privacy, a few more elements of his life begin to seem… out of place. To be clear, this section of the film is very, very funny. Like an improv mumblecore From Dusk Till Dawn, you might find yourself having a great time but wondering where the proverbial beef is. Then sh*t, as they say, gets dark. The film never ceases to be funny, but it is incredibly adroit at slowly titrating down on the laughs while gradually ratcheting up the sickness at the heart of this transaction.

One of the more frightening things about the film is that we’ve all met someone like Josef. Maybe they’re not turned up as loud as he is, but we know them. There is no doubt in my mind that you will recognize a very specific person who has been a part – hopefully on the further fringes – of your life. Perhaps even more frightening? Most of us have been in the position of exacerbating this person’s behavior – again, hopefully to a lesser extent – like Aaron does with his passive enabling.

But, without spoiling anything, I would hope that none of us have experienced a turn of events that even remotely resembles what begins to happen in Creep around the halfway point (and keeps getting worse from there). That’s when the film’s tone effortlessly slides into something truly menacing. Duplass and Brice are excellent throughout, but they really elevate Creep to greatness levels with the work they do here.

To say anymore would be to spoil the day Josef has planned for you. My advice is simply to seek this Creep out. If he doesn’t get under your skin, something’s wrong with you.

[SXSW '14 Interview] Jason Blum On 'Oculus,' 'Creep,' 'Mercy,' 'Mockingbird' and Others!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 16:04

Jason Blum is having a good SXSW with Oculus getting rave reviews in addition to the premiere of the fantastic Mark Duplass vehicle Creep (I loved this movie – review to come).

I caught up with him yesterday at the Four Seasons here in Austin to chat about both of those films as well as the bigger scope of The Purge: Anarchy. We also touched base and clarified some issues raised by an odd Hollywood Reporter article that came out a few weeks ago. In short, Blum assures us that movies like Mockingbird, Mercy and Stretch ARE indeed coming out.

Head below for details!

You came onboard ‘Oculus’ later right?

Yeah, after they shot it, just like Paranormal Activity. I saw it in Toronto and its distribution prospects looked iffy – but I loved it. I loved how original it was. I loved everything about it, the storytelling and acting. Every time I see a horror movie that feels new, I want to be involved. And I think horror fans everywhere will appreciate it, we just have to get it to them.

It requires the audience to pay attention, in addition to being a bit longer than most horror these days.

It is longer. I thought it should be shorter and was proven wrong by Mike and Trevor. They were very adamant. We looked at shorter versions of the movie and they were proven right.

Kind of like how you initially wanted less Specs and Tucker in Insidious?

Correct! I’m a terrible cutter! I shouldn’t be allowed to do cut notes! You’re exactly right.

You’ve also got Creep here, which I love.

Creep was much more of a rough cut when I came on a little over a year ago. It was more of a horror comedy and I thought they could definitely push it in more of a scary direction with funny moments – but not too many of them. And they were interested in crafting it and that manner so we went in on it. I feel like there’s a lot of funny stuff in there, but ultimately that movie is more scary than it is comedy.

It gradually scales tones, it doesn’t ping-pong back and forth as much.

Yeah we kept trying different things. One of the good things about found footage is that it’s so inexpensive you can keep trying stuff out. And we screened it for people until it got there.

I’m always going to ask you about The Town That Dreaded Sundown remake.

Of course. It’s almost locked, almost finished. I love the movie. You’re gonna love the movie. It’s really crazy and cool.

There was a Hollywood Reporter piece that hit a few weeks ago that took some aim at you. Is there anything you’d want to clarify?

We are very transparent with our model and have been incredibly upfront about our process. As we have said we are proud of all of those movies [Mockingbird, Mercy and Stretch] and they are are going to come out. All of them. And movies that we made before we were with Universal that did not go wide – Lords Of Salem, The Bay and Babymakers – all received limited release too.

Did you feel like it was a bit of a smear piece?

We all get wacked for trying something different and it was just my turn. That’s okay. We’ve had a lot of good press, what goes up must come down. Every movie that we do will eventually come out. They did find out that our toilet was clogged – so we called a plumber.

Everyone is excited to see The Purge: Anarchy take place outside of the house and on the streets. How was it shooting that on location on a similar budget?

Well we had a similar amount of money to what we had on the second Insidious, which is a lot more than the first. But even on sequels we stick to our formula. What makes sequels expensive is above the line costs, above the line is all still pretty much at zero.

[Random Cool] Watch This Awesome Nirvana "Heart-Shaped Box" Cover

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 16:00

As I stated in this article, I’m not the biggest fan of grunge rockers Nirvana. But I do love it when someone takes a song and gives it their own spin. Well, if it’s done right, of course.

This is a time when a cover is done right. Multi-instrumentalist/singer Kawehi has posted a cover of the classic Nirvana track “Heart-Shaped Box” where she performs all the parts through a looper, creating a full bodied track that is immediately identifiable yet unique and refreshing. I wholly recommend going down below to check it out (along with her cover of Nine Inch Nails‘ “Closer”).

You can provide some last-minute support to her crowd sourcing effort here.

Next Season of True Detective to Focus on the Occult

Dread Central - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 15:38

HBO's "True Detective" flirted with being a horror-themed show all season, and one can argue that that's exactly what it was. One thing is certain... last night's season finale would have even the most jaded of Texas Chain Saw Massacre fans drooling. Now, for Season 2, things may be getting a whole lot darker.

We know two things for sure about the show... each season will be a self-contained story, and Season 1 lead actors Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey won't return.

So what's next? During an interview with series creator Nic Pizzolatto, HitFix inquired about the direction next season will take.

"I realize I need to keep being strange. Don't play the next one straight," Pizzolatto said. "This is really early, but I'll tell you [it's about] hard women, bad men, and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system."

Pizzolatto also went on to say that his prose is typically "populated with rich female characters," so maybe we'll be getting female detectives who will act as "mirrors to reflect some aspect of Rust (McConaughey) or Marty (Harrelson)."

Stay tuned, kids!

DVD and Blu-ray Release Allows You to Escape from Tomorrow

Dread Central - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 15:18

One of the most talked about films from last year was Randy Moore's nightmarish Escape from Tomorrow (review), which was covertly filmed at Disney World. Next month you'll finally be able to see it for yourself. Read on for complete details!

From the Press Release
Featured in IndieWire’s top 5 first features of 2013, and called “a cult classic in the making” (Salon), Escape from Tomorrow comes to DVD and Blu-Ray April 29 from Cinedigm.

Unlike any film ever made, the most buzzed about debut at Sundance 2013 enraptured audiences with the fearless methods used by its writer/director Randy Moore along with its compelling take on childhood fantasy gone awry. Secretly shot at two world-famous theme parks, Escape from Tomorrow uses covert techniques that take guerrilla filming to another level, placing it amongst one of the most revolutionary films in history.

Celebrated by ScreenCrush as one of the best movies of the year and called a “sneakily subversive exercise in low-budget surrealism and anti-corporate satire” (Variety), Escape from Tomorrow takes place in a fantasyland of deliberately crafted childhood dreams. When family man Jim vacations with his wife and children, he is invaded by nightmares in the guise of princesses, happy theme park rides, and fellow tourists. With a backdrop familiar to all audiences as a setting where fairy tales become real, his world suddenly comes crashing down as these enchanting figures eerily turn into horrific characters threatening his very life.

Filled with “stunningly beautiful compositions made all the more impressive by the difficult circumstances of the shooting” (Los Angeles Times), Escape from Tomorrow on DVD features exclusive commentary, including one in which Jim recounts his adventure first-hand, along with a fascinating, must-see look at the making of the film.

Synopsis
The most provocative film from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Escape from Tomorrow should not exist, and yet it does. Like nothing you've ever seen, Randy Moore's directorial debut is a bold and ingenious trip into the happiest place on earth. An epic battle begins when a middle-aged American husband and father of two learns that he has lost his job. Keeping the news from his nagging wife and wound-up children, he packs up the family and embarks on a full day of park hopping amid enchanted castles and fairytale princesses.

Soon, the manufactured mirth of the fantasyland around him begins to haunt his subconscious. An idyllic family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters, and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians. Chillingly shot in black and white, Escape from Tomorrow dissects the mythology of artificial perfection while subversively attacking our culture's obsession with mass entertainment.

    WILL REACHES HIS BREAKING POINT AND SENDS A KILLER AFTER HANNIBAL - When one of the team’s own is found in a grotesque tableau, Will (Hugh Dancy) volunteers to assist with the profile.

    He informs Jack (Laurence Fishburne) that it’s the work of the Chesapeake Ripper and the Copycat Killer… the two are one and the same.

    Dr. Able Gideon (Eddie Izzard) is brought back to the asylum to help confirm Will’s claims of the Ripper’s true identity (Hannibal Lecter) but instead suggests to Will the idea of putting an end to the Ripper once and for all.

    Confined behind bars, Will enlists the help of Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) to contact his murderous admirer through her website. Once he has the killer’s attention, Will asks for help dealing with Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen).

    Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) becomes suspicious of Will’s intentions after reading Freddie’s article, and Gideon confirms her suspicions, sending Alana and Jack rushing to find Hannibal before it’s too late. Also starring Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson.

    Monkeybrain Monday 5 Skull Review: “Headspace” # 1

    bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 13:22

    While Monkeybrain comics may not specialize in horror, they do specialize in quality comic books. For those of you looking to expand your palette this is “Monkeybrain Monday” showcasing some of the digital titles this smaller publisher has to offer.

    Ryan K Lindsay is an established authority in the comics world. He writes about comics, scripts them, and does prose too. His newest collaboration ,“Headspace” takes an unconventional trip to Carpenter Cove. A city located the mind of a killer. We follow Shane, the local sheriff as he battles isolation, loss, and insurmountable odds in a very surreal and insane place.


    WRITTEN BY: Ryan K Lindsay
    ART BY: Eric Zawadzki & Chris Peterson
    PUBLISHER: Monkeybrain Comics
    PRICE: $0.99
    GET IT HERE: https://www.comixology.com/Headspace-1/digital-comic/77259?app=1

    “Headspace” always keeps you guessing. What appears to be a straightforward narrative is quickly cast away. It’s revealed we’re in the mind of a killer. You think okay; we’ll follow this normal sheriff as he slowly pieces together his situation. Lindsay wastes no time, the story explodes and doesn’t let up. The big “twist” isn’t even a twist; it’s a framing device for insanity and horror.

    Shane fights his way through the volatile headspace of Max, a serial killer on the run. The script switches between both POV’s to fantastic effect. You watch as the nature of Max’s situation is reflected in the madness of Carpenter Cove. Within said insanity, Shane must find a way to define himself and his situation against everything in his way. Which comes to reveal the heart of the story in the fleeting moments of the issue.

    The art is stellar all around. The sequences in Carpenter Cove are cleanly laid out and feature some of the most vibrant creature and character designs around. The town is fully realized. Eric Zawadzki’s style is incredible. He spares no detail and has a knack for incredible perspective. As if this all wasn’t enough he colors his own work. Tonally everything is beautiful and totally soaked in the bleak emotions the script communicates. It’s truly incredible stuff.

    When in the real world, Chris Peterson and colorist Marissa Louise take over. Creating a more fast paced and grittier look that serves to add some flavor to the story. It looks distinct, detailed, and dynamic. You’ll feel awash in a sea of strangers as Max frantically tries to free himself from the trouble created by his murders.

    “Headspace” is a phenomenal read on every level. The concept is brilliant and executed with such skill that’ll you’ll barely find time to take a breath. The pacing is perfect and the world building is insane. It’s as good as first issues get, and it sows the seeds of an infinitely more interesting world to come. I can’t wait to see issue 2.

    Rating: 5/5 Skulls.

    You Can Help Make The Walking Dead: The Prison – Board Game a Reality

    Dread Central - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 13:00

    Last week Squires told us about a mobile game on its way based on AMC's "The Walking Dead", and now comes word on The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game, a sequel to Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead: The Board Game set inside the world of the infamous prison.

    Independent game developers MegaGigaOmniCorp and Top8Magic have launched a Kickstarter campaign for The Walking Dead: The Prison – Board Game, which features characters and artwork from Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic series.

    In the game you and up to five of your friends will take on the role of one of the six leaders of the group: Rick, Tyreese, Glenn, Dale, Andrea, and Michonne.

    The stand-alone project is fully supported by the team at Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment and is being developed by creators who worked on its predecessor, the hit 2011 game Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead: The Board Game, published by Z-Man Games, as well as a board game for "Lost." It features incredible artwork by series artist Charlie Adlard.

    From The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game Kickstarter page:
    The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game focuses on the events of Issues 13 through 24: the discovery of, fight to clean out, and struggle to control… The Prison.

    The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game will have an MSRP of $49.99. Backers of The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game will not only be first to receive the game before it is in stores but also will have the opportunity to purchase the game at a lower price and have access to Kickstarter-exclusive game components and rule sets.

    After months in the wild and on the run, Rick, Lori, Andrea, Glenn, and the rest of the survivors find the ultimate survival spot outside Atlanta, Georgia: a fenced in prison, still in good condition. Of course, it’s filled with zombies that need to be cleared, but before the survivors can do that, they learn all too quickly that they aren’t the only ones seeking refuge inside the prison. With existing tenants (Dexter, Axel, Thomas, and Andrew) to handle and new group members to integrate with (Michonne), the challenge of living in the prison isn’t just about fighting zombies...

    The survivors end up struggling with each other for control over the group's fate.

    Just about three weeks remain in the game's campaign. For more info visit The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game on Kickstarter.

    [SXSW '14 Review] 'Starry Eyes' Delivers Unsparing and Brutal Violence!

    bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 12:55

    Evan Dickson continues his coverage from the SXSW Film Festival, now taking place in Austin, Texas.

    In between chowing down on some of the best BBQ in the world, Dickson is catching world premiere screenings of all of this year’s hottest genre films. Next up is the Hollywood horror tale, Starry Eyes, from distro-madmen Dark Sky Films.

    Complex and layered, [Starry Eyes] definitely leaves you with more to chew on than your typical midnight fare,” Dickson says in his review. “It is also absolutely unsparing and brutal when it comes to its violence – there are moments in the film that give even the goriest slashers and body horror sagas alike a run for their money.

    Even if parts of Starry Eyes might not work for you, as a horror fan I suspect most of it will.
