Elijah Wood must play it perfectly, or people he love will die…
Guaranteed to make my list of favorite movies of the year is Eugenio Mira’s masterful thriller, Grand Piano, which is now creating a symphony of destruction on various VOD platforms and in limited theaters.

Hello, my name is Adam, and I have an addiction. That addiction is hardcover art books — specifically but not exclusively related to video games — which I adore. My collection is paltry, I’m sure, but I’m no less proud of it. There’s something about video game concept art that really appeals to me. Before it’s translated to a virtual world, unshackled by the limitations that technology brings, it’s raw creativity.
All that is an extremely long winded way of saying Bethesda has announced hardcover art books for three of their upcoming games, including Wolfenstein: The New Order, Dishonored, and our most anticipated horror game of 2014, Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within.
Circulating on the Web are two piece of art from Warner Bros. and Legenary’s Godzilla reboot, one from the first teaser poster, the other the cover of Empire Magazine. What’s so fantastic about these hi-res images are that they feature the gorgeous artwork without all of the text in the way. What you end up with are images that deserve a place on your wall.
In theaters May 16, “Making his first appearance in 1954 (Gojira) Godzilla is a giant monster that lives in the sea that comes from the ocean to feed on mankind.
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.” READ MORE

With SXSW getting underway today, MTV scored the first clip from Mike Flanagan’s(Absentia, Ghosts of Hamilton Street) absolutely fantastic horror flick Oculus, opening in theaters everywhere on April 11 from Relativity.

According to CraveOnline, guitarist Adam Jones of progressive rock/metal band Tool was speaking with a meet-and-greet fan before the band’s Portland, OR show and stated that the new album, the follow up to 2006′s 10,000 Days, is 100% complete and will be released this year. Aside from some talk about strange time signatures, that was the most he was willing to give.
Tool has been known to be pretty good about misdirecting people when it comes to album release dates. One member will say one thing and another will refute it only to say something completely different. So, let’s not get too excited just yet, shall we?
That being said, I seriously hope this is true. READ MORE

Dynamite just announced a new dark fantasy ongoing series, “Blood Queen”, which is slated for a June release. The series comes at you from writer Troy Brownfield and artist Fritz Casas and follows a young woman with magical powers who is hired to save a princess. It is apparently inspired by the true story of the Countess Elizabeth Bathory, and combines elements of fairytale with the Renaissance era. Although it sounds steeped in generic fantasy tropes, there are definitely intriguing aspect to “Blood Queen”. The covers are taking a page out of the “Vampirella” tradition with plenty of cleavage and a less scantily-clad red suit. Check out all the information below as well as some preview art. READ MORE
Dynamite will be releasing a new “Vampirella” series in June to be penned by Nancy A. Collins, with art from Patrick Berkenkotter. Vampirella is in dire need of a modernization because, let’s face it, there’s not much going on other than blood sucking and thongs. Collins might be just what the character needs (though the covers haven’t changed) and I’m actually pumped to see where the series goes. Check out all the details below. READ MORE
This is why I love technology and the internet, and want to marry both…
I just stumbled across this hilarious video that replaces the Raptors in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 Jurassic Park with cats.
I’m highly allergic to cats, thus this would be an even more terrifying situation for me…
…and nothing like Theodore Rex, I assure you…

Badass Digest landed an exclusive first look at this creeptacular festival poster for Housebound, which takes awkward family photos to an entirely new level…
In the New Zealand-based film, “Kylie Bucknell is forced to return to the house she grew up in when the court places her on home detention. Her punishment is made all the more unbearable by the fact she has to live there with her mother Miriam – a well-intentioned blabbermouth who’s convinced that the house is haunted. Kylie dismisses Miriam’s superstitions as nothing more than a distraction from a life occupied by boiled vegetables & small town gossip. However, when she too becomes privy to unsettling whispers & strange bumps in the night, she begins to wonder whether she’s inherited her overactive imagination, or if the house is in fact possessed by a hostile spirit who’s not particularly thrilled about her return.” READ MORE
MPI/Dark Sky Films announced today they will be releasing a restored version The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic. The re-release comes in celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary, with the restoration having its unveiling at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas next week.
In 1973, Tobe Hooper, a cast of unknown actors, and a crew of Austin film students and recent graduates headed to Round Rock, Texas in the middle of July. For the next 32 days they worked around the clock in 100 degree weather to make The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. The movie became a huge hit on the drive-in circuit and eventually grossed $30 million. It was invited to the 1975 Cannes Film Festival Director’s Fortnight, and was acquired as part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Since then, it has become the eighth highest-grossing horror franchise of all time. In 2012, Sight & Sound magazine named it one of the 250 most important movies ever made.
The new version of the film will be released in theaters this summer with a brand new 4K transfer, roughly four times the resolution of today’s more commonly used 2K for cinema. This is the only transfer of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre to go back to the original 16mm A/B rolls, the actual film that rolled through the cameras. READ MORE
They say the ocean is one of the last mysteries left for humanity. We’ve only explored about 5 to 7 percent of the ocean floor, and that number gets even smaller in the deep ocean. This means there’s plenty of room for mysteries, like the Bloop, still out there waiting to be discovered. Apparently, there are plenty of horrors too.
The indie horror game Narcosis follows an industrial diver who has been stranded on the ocean floor. The developer is taking inspiration from games like Silent Hill, BioShock, and Amnesia — it sounds like sanity could be as valuable a resource as oxygen — as the diver struggles to find a way back to the surface. The game started out as a school project, and now it’s being turned into a fully realized game that will be detailed at GDC later this month. Screens after the break.
Manga publisher Viz Media has revealed their plans to bring the Resident Evil 6 prequel manga to North America this November. The five-volume series will follow Chris Redfield before the events in the game, when he and his team are sent to a high school in Singapore to investigate and contain a C-Virus outbreak.
BioWare has released a new video that showcases many of the incredibly detailed — a few could be mistaken for real places — environments in their next-gen fantasy RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition, due later this year. The game takes a few pages out of Skyrim’s book, and it shows. I’m all for having another beautiful, open-world fantasy sandbox to play around in, and if anyone can do a good job of it, it’s the makers of Mass Effect. Take a tour of Inquisition’s world after the jump.
