It’s truly amazing how much the Silent Hill series means to people. Personally, I’ve been a huge fan since the first game came out. I’ve owned each game (except for Book Of Memories and that’s because I don’t want to buy a Vita), multiple copies of the soundtracks, and more.
For musician Benn Down (aka Quiet One), it was an opportunity to connect musically to a feeling he had inside. He did so by covering Simon And Garfunkel‘s infamous song “Sound Of Silence”, albeit giving it a slightly darker twist than the original.
When I originally heard the rumours about ‘Silent Hills’ I felt compelled to write a song for the game. I tried a few different songs and then I heard Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence” on the radio. I instantly knew that I could rework it to make a truly special song for Silent Hills. This version of ‘Sound of Silence’ is for you. Thank you so much for your support.
I decided to make a revised trailer for the upcoming ‘Silent Hills’. I understand that the games and the films are separate in regards to storyline (the games are canon) however the imagery from the films was so iconic that I couldn’t resist. Please enjoy this re-imagining and please enjoy the songs.
Below is the trailer featuring the cover. You can download the cover for free here.

Over the weekend I was called a "14 year old moron" on Facebook for writing a story about characters from Kevin Smith's Tusk appearing in his new movie, Yoga Hosers. Said reader thought I let loose a major spoiler. Yeah, he was wrong, I didn't spoil anything... but this next story will have him losing his shit! Or at least I hope it will for spite!
A new poster for Tusk was released today featuring your first look at...
CAREFUL NOW! SPOILERS ARE ABOUT TO ABOUND! IF YOU DO NOT WANT ANYTHING SPOILED, PLEASE TURN BACK IMMEDIATELY!
Ah, to be 14 again!

Check it out!
Tusk, written and directed by Smith, stars Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, and Michael Parks. Long plays a journalist who finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses.

Look for the flick in theatres on September 19, 2014.
When it comes to movies, Rob Zombie is very touch and go. First he says he wants to do something; then he'll say a month later that he doesn't want to do something. Then he'll announce something. Then that movie will be forgotten about. It's enough to drive you mad, and that's just how he likes it!
In a recent interview with Fangoria, Zombie dropped the following on fans regarding a possible new Devil's Rejects film...
“I’ve always thought I’d like to make another movie because I love the characters, and I have an idea I think is solid for a third one – an idea that would make sense. The problem is, I don’t own the characters now. They’re owned by Lionsgate, and they just don’t have any desire to do anything. So it isn’t me not doing it because I don’t want to; I don’t have the ability to get it done.”
Bad, evil Lionsgate! Rejecting the rejects!

But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed—something not exactly human, but not completely animal—an urban legend come to terrifying life... and seeking murderous revenge.

As we reported back in July, Johnny Depp will be making a surprise appearance in Kevin Smith’s Tusk, premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival before its September 19 release.
Today, the official Twitter released this teaser look at the character Guy LaPointe, who is played by none other than Depp.
In Tusk, Justin Long plays a man who is surgically turned into a walrus by a mysterious seafarer (Michael Parks).
In a very Van Helsing-like character, we explained that Lapointe is described to us as an eccentric French Canadian detective who’s been hunting Howard Howe (played by Parks) for over a decade. He recounts gruesome details from previous cases – Howe’s victims were found with legs amputated and arms sewn back on, tongues hacked off, etc.
Lapointe, who called himself “Monsieur Lapointe”, is employed by Teddy (Haley Joel Osment) and Allison (Genesis Rodriguez) to help find Wallace (Long).
Hopefully we’ll see him in an official still some time soon.
Be careful what you hunt.
Arriving on DVD and VOD September 9, 2014 from writer-director-actor Josh Stewart and the procures of The Collector is The Hunted. Extra features include Audio commentary with Josh Stewart and Producers, and “The True Story” Featurette .
“The Hunted follows family-man, hunter, Jake, played by Josh Stewart, alongside his best friend Stevie (Ronnie Gene Blevins) as they journey deep into the Appalachians of West Virginia on the hunt for a legendary buck. Chasing their dream of landing a television hunting show, the duo head into the dense, secluded mountains armed with only their bows and camera equipment. The friends quickly realize there is something else that stirs within the woods. Something that, turn by turn, begins to hunt them…”
Written, directed and starring Stewart, The Hunted was inspired by the actor’s desire to spark his creativity and bring home his talent after spending months on the high-budget set of The Dark Knight Rises. Growing up in rural West Virginia, Stewart spent much of his youth fly-fishing and hunting in the sprawling woods where the film is set. An outdoorsman at heart, the first-time director made every effort to ensure the film would feel as authentic as possible to fellow hunters. Everything from the equipment, apparel and even safety measures were true to form – a quality only found on hunting shows, not in fictional work.
Since its debut last week, folks can’t seem to get enough of Silent Hills. For me, it signals a potential renaissance for AAA survival horror, which — thanks to games like this, The Evil Within, Alien: Isolation, and (potentially) Resident Evil — is showing signs of returning to the glorious years of the early 2000s. Indie horror is flourishing, and it looks like that’s benefiting the AAA space as well as more game makers are realizing there’s an audience out there for more visceral scares.
For others, the demo is something to be picked apart and examined. It’s already inspired a torrent of reaction videos and fan theories as we try to mine the limited information available for any new details. Even the demo’s supporting cast, a sink-dwelling aborted baby creature, is real now.
Continuing this trend is an unexpected mash-up that uses the Silent Hills teaser’s first person perspective and injects it with some of The Stanley Parable.
If you haven’t played The Stanley Parable, it’s a little hard to explain it in a way that does it justice. On the surface, it’s a very simplistic first person story-driven game where your every action and decision is commented on by a narrator — voiced by the lovely Kevan Brighting. It’s also an incredibly effective and often hilarious parody of modern video game design. If you’d like to check it out, you can grab the game for $15 on Steam.

We all know that these days the best horror is on TV, and two more awesome sounding new genre shows are heading to Lifetime and HBO. Read on for the early details of "Damien" and "Ashecliffe," respectively.
Per Deadline, Lifetime has given a straight-to-series pickup to "Damien," a sequel drama about what became of the evil child in the 1976 film The Omen, written by former "The Walking Dead" showrunner Glen Mazzara.
"Damien" has received a six-episode order for an early 2015 premiere. It is produced by Fox TV Studios, whose sibling Twentieth Century Fox produced the movie and where Mazzara is under an overall deal. The thriller series follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 feature who has grown up, seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist, the most feared man throughout the ages.
“Glen Mazzara has re-imagined Damien as a dark, romantic anti-hero; and this fresh take blends complex characters with premium storytelling to make something truly original,” said Lifetime EVP Rob Sharenow. Mazzara executive produces through his 44 Strong Prods. alongside Ross Fineman of Fineman Entertainment, who developed the project alongside Mazzara, and Pancho Mansfield.
As for "Ashecliffe," HBO and Paramount Television are making deals to turn the 2010 hit film Shutter Island into a TV series that's now tentatively titled "Ashecliffe." Again according to Deadline, the plan is for the pilot to be directed by Martin Scorsese from a script by Dennis Lehane, who wrote the bestselling thriller novel Scorsese and screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis turned into the hit film that starred Leonardo DiCaprio. The timing is dependent on the availability of Scorsese.
"Ashecliffe" is the name of the isolated mental hospital where the movie took place, and the series begins before the events of the film. The focus is the past of hospital and the secrets and misdeeds perpetrated by its founders, who erected the hospital in the early 20th Century and developed the methods of treatment used for the mentally ill.
Scorsese, Lehane, Kalogridis, Brad Fischer, Appian Way’s DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran Davisson, Rick Yorn, Chris Donnelly, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Phoenix’s Mike Medavoy, and Arnie Messer will be exec producers. Tom Bernardo is working with Lehane as a co-writer of the format.
Look for more on both of these new series as it comes.
