Next Five Nights At Freddy’s To End Series

Posted by Bob Muir on Apr 28, 2015 in Videogames

Five Nights at Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter

After plenty of hints that sent fans into a frenzy, Scott Cawthon has announced Five Nights at Freddy’s 4: The Final Chapter. While there’s no telling for sure that this is the true end of the series thanks to Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, it does seem as though the YouTube-popular indie horror series does seem to be ending. Even if the series does end though, fans can still look forward to the movie, which was recently announced. Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 is due out on Halloween later this year. Read more…

HBO Is Adapting Shutter Island Into A TV Series

Posted by Bob Muir on Aug 26, 2014 in Television

Shutter Island

Shutter Island was enjoyable for what it was, a trippy, semi-horror suspense film from master director Martin Scorsese. Now, HBO is working out a deal with Paramount to adapt the movie into a TV series. Unlike recent films-turned-TV-series like Fargo, this one’s likely to get a name change; Ashecliffe is the tentative title, named after the mental hospital where the movie was set. If things go smoothly, Martin Scorsese will direct the pilot episode (as he did for Boardwalk Empire) and Dennis Lehane (the original novel’s author) will write the pilot’s script. One thing is likely a safe bet: I doubt Leonardo DiCaprio will be part of the show. Read more…

Pick The Alternate Cover For The Evil Within

Posted by Bob Muir on Jul 31, 2014 in Videogames

The Evil Within

Modern videogame covers are always hampered by tons of logos, ratings, and various other text designed to help you buy a product. But for collectors who want a nice-looking product with a bit of thought behind it, the cover is a wasted opportunity. So I’m liking this recent trend of alternate box art printed on the reverse of the regular cover; more games should have this small bonus. Bethesda has a poll up right now to pick an alternate cover for The Evil Within. “Asylum” (pictured above) is currently winning, but I think “Piercing Eye” looks striking as well. Consider giving it a vote? Read more…

Hell No: What if Sensible People Were in Horror Films?

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 19, 2013 in Fandom

hellno

Here’s a great little video for your weekend: HELL NO. It’s a faux trailer for your typical horror film… expect the people in it are sensible. That terrifying house? Yeah, let’s not spend a week there. Especially with no cell phone signal. There’s a monster in the water? Ok. Let’s not go in the water — problem solved! There’s a couple clever jokes in there that made me chuckle. But it makes me want to see what would happen if we got a horror film with people who actually weren’t written like complete idiots. Maybe there’s one I’ve missed out there? Watch the video below! Read more…

The Evil Within Sure Looks Horrific

Posted by Bob Muir on Sep 18, 2013 in Videogames

The Evil Within

Shinji Mikami is well known for directing Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4, classics of survival horror (or I guess just horror for that second one). He and his studio Tango Gameworks have teamed up with Bethesda to make The Evil Within, a new horror game for most major platforms. It does look pretty spooky, with the enemies looking like a mixture of science gone wrong and forbidden occult magic. The Evil Within is coming out sometime in 2014, but hopefully it will be playable at this year’s Tokyo Game Show and we can get more enticing details. Read more…

Broodhollow Webcomic Launches Kickstarter For First Book

Posted by Bob Muir on Jul 16, 2013 in Comic Books

Broodhollow

If you’re into webcomics, you may have heard of Kris Straub. The man has been working in webcomics for years, with one of his earliest projects being Checkerboard Nightmare, a meta-commentary on webcomics. Chainsawsuit is a near-daily loose parody of poorly drawn gag-a-day comics, and last year he wrapped up his seven-year sci-fi comic Starslip. But his latest project, in my opinion, is his finest work yet, easily surpassing anything else he’s done. Starting last year, Broodhollow is a story of a neurotic encyclopedia salesman traveling to a quaint town to receive the inheritance of a distant relative. Soon, he is begins to uncover dark secrets after strange events occur around him. As Straub puts it, it’s “Tintin goes to Innsmouth,” referencing both the adventure comic series by Herge and H.P. Lovecraft’s quiet town with sinister secrets in the Cthulhu Mythos. Read more…

New Trailer For Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs Looks Horrifying

Posted by Bob Muir on Nov 1, 2012 in Videogames

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

Halloween may have been yesterday, but that doesn’t diminish how scary this trailer is. I couldn’t play Amnesia: The Dark Descent, only watch my roommate play it. And while we only made it halfway, I can still visualize many memorable moments of horror, or even just the common moments of wandering around a very dark castle as the character’s sanity slipped away. Frictional Games and thechineseroom’s follow-up, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, looks to be just as haunting as its predecessor, and possibly more aggressive. Read more…

One Hundred Horror Movies Spoiled in Five Minutes

Posted by Michael Sacco on Oct 31, 2010 in Cinema, Horror

It’s Halloween, and that means it’s horror movie season! But man, watching all those scream queens can be an awful lot of work. Why don’t you let the Fine Brothers do all the legwork for you? They’ve compiled one hundred spoilers for horror movies of all stripes and put them all in one convenient five-minute video. Want to know about Draculas? They’ve got you covered. Wondering who meets their maker in Final Destination? They’re all over it. Wish I had one of these for my college lit classes. “100 Puritan Texts Spoiled in Five Minutes,” anyone? Read more…
