You probably already know. You’ve all got that one geek friend that ran up to you (or emailed you repeatedly) on Saturday, screaming incoherantly until you slapped him around a bit and got the news out of him as he wept tears of joy. “Diablo III is coming!” he cried, “Diablo III is coming.”
Yes, that’s a real poster for a real movie called Donkey Punch that’s being released over in England in a few weeks. If you’re not laughing by now, you must not know what it means. Go ask your parents.
Fangoria dropped a few tidbits from Dimension Extreme/Genius Products’ upcoming dvd lineup, revealing that Argento’s Mother of Tears will finally be hitting stores on September 23rd, and Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds will come out October 21st, which is the day the new 3-disc collector’s edition of Rob Zombie’s Halloween will hit as well.
Can you still believe that Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe actually exists? Still seems like a big joke, right? But some more screens have come out of Midway that show that they really are working on the game.
Just got another update from the cool dudes over at EA who’re working on Dead Space. They’ve got some new stuff to show off and seem genuinely excited about it. It makes sense. Every new detail or bit of footage shown from the game is enough to make any survival horror fan cream their pants.
Since 2002 the Battlefield series has led the way for first person shooters, at least in the realm of online multiplayer. A huge number of players could fight each other at one time, jumping in and out of vehicles and classes of all sorts. The developer DICE knows what it’s doing in that regard, but once they announced the plans for a console-only shooter people were worried. Would the focus on the single player game ruin it? Would the insane multiplayer be abadonded?
No and no. This is Battlefield done right, faster and more advanced and a helluva lot more exciting. Welcome to Bad Company.
One of my biggest guilty pleasures of the last few years has got to be Scare Tactics, the candid camera show with a completely fucked up sense of humor. Instead of watching people do silly things their whole intention was to place them into horror and sci-fi movies, completely freaking out the targets and probably doing some long-term damage to their minds.
It’s 2015. Oil is gone and the world has been thrown into chaos. Overpopulation has reached a critical stage and to combat it a massive company known only as ‘The Corporation’ has taken charge of society. Their plan for the betterment of mankind? They force scientists to find a disease to weed out the poor and let the rich survive on.
Stuck is note-worthy for two reasons. For one thing it’s the first Amicus Productions film since the company was recently revived (if you’re not familiar with the Hammer Films rival and production company of such films as Tales from the Crypt, Vault of Horror and Scream and Scream Again, it’s time to get acquainted) and secondly, it’s Stuart Gordon’s real return to his horror roots. It mixes horror and black humor in a way that few directors can, and proves that the man’s still got it. This film’s fantastic.
You kids today with your Internet and its Rotten.coms and Ogrishes. You don’t know how easy you have it to watch real life acts of violence and death. Years and years ago all anyone had was Faces of Death. Back in my day you had to find a shady video store that would lend it to a minor, and watch a grainy VHS copy of a film in the living room late, late at night, worried that our parents would throw us out on the streets if they found out what we were really watching.
