Rights Continue to Hold Up TNT’s “Tales From the Crypt” Revival

Published

on

TNT’s entire horror universe appears to be crumbling, with the cable channel passing on even filming the pilot for “Let the Right One In”, and still being stuck in some sort of rights battle for the long-delayed “Tales From the Crypt” revival.

We told you exclusively here on Bloody back in December that there were rights issues holding up the M. Night Shyalaman series that would have been the central part of a new “Horror Block”.

At the time we were able to reach a TNT representative for comment, who explained the situation in detail:

“The underlying rights to this classic, vintage property are complicated. TNT and others have been pursuing a solution for more than a year, with significant progress being made. We look forward to the potential for further active development of this valuable franchise once the clearance process is fully resolved.”

In Deadline’s report on “Let the Right One In”, they shared the exact same phrasing from TNT, which is disheartening because it alleges that not much has changed since late 2016.

“Tales From the Crypt” – part of TNT’s planned Horror Block, which was to also include “Time of Death” and “Creatures” –  was greenlit back in April 2016 as they were ramping up an initial 10-episode order of the anthology series that would have reinvented the Crypt Keeper, based on the original EC Comics.

In August 2016 TNT president Kevin Reilly said to expect the show in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The project was announced as a new block of terror and suspense that was to be curated by Shyamalan, the Oscar-nominated writer-director of The Sixth Sense, Signs and Unbreakable, and executive producer of the the Fox series “Wayward Pines.”

The block was said to feature both short and long-form storytelling, led by the “Tales From the Crypt” anthology series, executive-produced by Shyamalan, his partner at Blinding Edge Pictures, Ashwin Rajan; Endgame’s James Stern; and Aloris Entertainment’s John Santilli and Dan McKinnon.

Some early promos had leaked online, but have since been removed. Here’s a shot from one:

‘OMDO’ is ‘Doom’ With a Magic Eye Book

Published

on

We all know about Brutal Doom, the amazing mod that’s breathed a whole new experience into classic Doom. But have you tried your hand at OMDO? Or more accurately, have you ever used one of those Magic Eye books?

Yep, someone has taken classic Doom, put the entire shareware episode through a random dot autostereogram (aka a Magic Eye filter thingie), and the result is quite literally something you’ve never played before. Really, this is all just one of those goofy mods that takes the whole “can you do ‘x’ with ‘y’?” phrase and runs with it.

As mentioned, the entire shareware episode of Doom (which is Knee Deep In The Dead) has this effect applied to it, so either you cross your eyes or relax them to the point that you’ll be able to see what you’re playing. It also helps to have memorized the maps. It can also be difficult to play for long periods, so don’t go crazy.

To find out more about this mod, head to its homepage.

‘Devil May Cry 5’ Likely Coming Out “Before End of March 2019”

Published

on

It took its sweet time, but Devil May cry 5 is on its way. And sooner than you think.

The E3 trailer gave a Spring 2019 release date, but according to Capcom’s investor relations arm, that window has been narrowed to before the end of March. In the same press release, Capcom’s other big reveal, the Resident Evil 2 remaster, is again confirmed for its January 25th, 2019 release date.

Devil May Cry 5 is being directed by Hideaki Itsuno, who also directed Devil May Cry 3, Devil May Cry 4, and most recently, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen. Judging from the trailer, the game appears to have DMC4‘s Nero as the main protagonist, with Dante being secondary. Or, it could be Capcom messing with us again.

We’ll find out as the game creeps closer to release.

‘Angels of Death’ Set for Release on the Nintendo Switch June 28th

Published

on

I can’t say that I’m familiar with Playism’s psychological horror game Angels of Death. The game was originally released as Freeware, but has since made its way to Steam. It’s also spawned a manga adaptation, and an anime adaptation that’s scheduled to air later this summer. And now, the game is headed to the Nintendo Switch, where it will be on the Nintendo eShop June 28th for $14.99. You can also pre-order it now for a 10% discount.

The game is divided up into four parts, and centres on Ray, a girl who awakens in a room resembling a basement, with no memory of how she got there. While searching for the exit, she happens upon Zack, a murderer whose entire face is bandaged up, and whose clothing resembles the Grim Reaper. Begging her to kill him, Ray promises to fulfil his wish only if he helps her to escape.
