And thusly, our Alan Wake playthrough continued!
If you missed the last episode, all you really need to know is this one has roughly 150% more anal seepage. Also, we decide a bag of dicks would be extremely tough to get around, I get distracted by a tight little deer ass and David realizes the Energizer Bunny is a lie. Oh, and video games!
Since 1999, Eric Powell’s creation has done all sorts of monster smashing.

Food artists Kittiwat Unarrom has been having a little fun in his bakery, creating absolutely disgusting break that looks like real human parts, from heats to feet, lets, hands and skin.
The zombie-themed food art is called “Body Bakery: Bread Imitating Gore”.
“Thai Fine Art student and artist Kittiwat Unarrom is the son of a baker. All that baking exposure growing up has been a clear influence, but his artistic need to see things a little differently definitely flared up as he created the tacitly named “Body Bakery” – brutally, gruesomely, almost unbelievably realistic looking sculptures of dismembered human body parts sculpted entirely from bread,” they explain.
“With a master in Fine Arts Kittiwat Unarrom creates sculpture in bread. Not just normal sculpture but horror, dark art, gore, something I don’t know if I could actually eat.
“Located in Ratchaburi, Thailand Kittiwat creates feet, hands, heads, and internal organs among other body parts all entirely edible and for sale at his family’s bakery. He skillfully paints each piece to look terrifying to the observer/customer.” READ MORE
Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with Indiana experimental blackened noise/horror electronics artist Demonologists to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for “Graveyard Ejaculations”. Directed by Mitch Massie (Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct) the video is nothing short of a nightmare, a phantasmagoric sequence of horrific, erotic, surreal images punctured by a cacophony of demonic howls and piercing shrieks. Using vast amounts of practical effects, the video is highly NSFW due to nudity and gore.
The track “Graveyard Ejaculations” is set to be featured on an upcoming split 12″ with Dargar (featuring members of Harassor), on Whispering Eye Recordings, featuring artwork by John Paul Whetzel and Darea Plantin of Deathstench.

AMC’s “The Walking Dead” pulls in a huge amount of viewers each week, easily more people than are ostensibly still alive and roaming the planet on the program. But are there too many walkers? Would they have been wiped out by now?
4Chan has some interesting thoughts on the matter. Here they do the numbers on the amount of humans vs. walkers on the show, and their math points to an interesting conclusion – all of the walkers would be dead by now.
Now, I haven’t been watching the show recently. In fact, it’s been so long since I’ve seen it that I’m not sure if the dead are rising from their graves or not. If they are, then this math goes out the window. But I don’t remember seeing that happen. READ MORE
It was never secret that Paramount Pictures’ summer blockbuster World War Z was troubled. The battles between producer/star Brad Pitt and director Marc Forster were very public, and the millions spent on shooting a different ending was well documented. Still, the movie was a monstrous success, and a sequel is now in development, so why not open up about the presumably stressful zombie epic?
Empire gets major props for getting Forster to address the elephant in the room and open up about the drama, explaining the reasons for changing the film’s finale.
“Basically, originally there was a third act that I thought didn’t work,” he explained. “As we were shooting we were discussing it and rewriting and rewriting it.”
Explains the site, in common with Max Brooks’ source novel, the third act was due to take Brad Pitt and a small army of zombie killers to Moscow for a final pitched battle. But a change of heart moved the action 1000 or so miles due west for a more intimate Wales-set ending: “The reason I felt it wouldn’t work is that by that time you have a certain battle fatigue after Israel. After Israel and the plane crash, trying to trump that and make it even bigger wasn’t working in our favor. The problem with a lot of these big movies is you start production and the script isn’t finished. The third act wasn’t fully fleshed out, but we had to rush in to meet the release date.” READ MORE

The road. It can mean many things to different people and for some, it’s a way of escaping or it’s a pathway to the future. For others, the road is a deadly place full of the unknown. The “road movie” is the perfect element in horror because it’s a terrifying character in and of itself. The following are a list of the best road movies in the genre. READ MORE
Australian progressive rockers Karnivool have released a 20-second teaser for their upcoming “Eidolon” music video. Via a Facebook post, the band stated that the video, “…is going to make you feel…emotions!” You hear that? ALL THE FEELS! And based upon the video for “We Are”, the band’s first Asymmetry single, I’m guessing that we’ll definitely need a few moments to compose ourselves once the new video is over. Head on down to check out the teaser! READ MORE
In the Valley of the Shadow of Death, a special covert ops team is sent to Iraq to investigate a series of paranormal events. John Raines, an American soldier, is about to see some of the ugliest and nastiest looking demons released from Hell. But John has been to the Valley before and this time, he’s here seeking revenge. From Legendary Entertainment, join Raines as he revisits the road to Hell in “Shadow Walk” (our review here).
I spoke with co-writer Max Brooks (World War Z) and artist Shane Davis about their involvement in the project, their interests in John Raines as the perfect solider, and how each death scene is related to the type of demon Raines and his covert team are fighting. READ MORE
Pulse-pounding action-packed, “Shadow Walk” is an impressive original graphic novel from the minds of Mark Waid, Max Brooks, and Thomas Tull, that features monster attacks, shootouts, and plenty of kill scenes.

With one helluva tough guy leading the brigade, “Shadow Walk” is a fun-filled read that horror fans will love. READ MORE

By now you’re probably getting ready to eat a metric f*#k ton of food due to the fact that it’s November. And if you’re not American, my recommendation is to still stuff your face with as much sustenance as humanly possible. That way, when you’re packed to the brim and food will pour out of you should you be turned upside down, you’ll know that you’re about to bust. And as Ray Parker Jr. so eloquently put it, “Bustin’ makes me feel good!”
With that AMAZING transition (seriously, someone get me a Pulitzer STAT), I present to you 331Erock‘s heavy metal cover of the Ghostbusters theme! As per usual, he takes the theme and remains true to the feel while adding in his own tasteful embellishments. Check it out below and then commence feasting! READ MORE

You and I haven’t met in person, we might not have even interacted online, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a special place in my heart. Tomorrow is Black Friday. It’s an exciting day where nearly every retailer decides to discount their products to lure you in with money in hand. Sadly, for many unfortunate souls, tomorrow can be a little too exciting.
One YouTuber has compiled a few horrifying scenes that might look like outtakes from World War Z, when in fact they’re insane real-life footage captured during Black Fridays past. It’s horrifying and offers an excellent reason to stay indoors tomorrow, where you can get many of the same deals online, sans the hordes of crazy people who are totally willing to curb-stomp you for a cheap HDTV — or in the case of one terrifying scene in this video, f**king cookware.

As per Variety, The Hunger Games films may have a Japanese predecessor – Kinji Fukasaku’s controversial 2000 hit Battle Royale – but they will also soon have a Japanese competitor: Takashi Miike’s As God Says (Kamisama no lu Tori).
Based on a popular comic, which also sounds also similar to Cube, As God Says is about teenagers forced to play a deadly game by unknown forces.
Sota Fukushi will star as an ordinary teen whose world is suddenly turned upside down one day, as he and his classmates find themselves caught up in a game whose penalty is death.
Miike described the story of the new pic as “They live, some heads roll, they run, blood sprays, they cry, they laugh and then they die – in other words, a fun movie.” READ MORE
Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World has regularly been called a “reboot” during casting and pre-production. But that’s not really the case. The new “trick” to getting around the stigma of the words “reboot” and “remake” is to make it “sort of” a prequel or a sequel. Such the case with Jurassic World, a soon-to-be sequel to Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece Jurassic Park.
Colin Trevorrow is directing the film, and is also very active on Twitter, which is where a fan asked, “Mr. Trevorrow, everytime I read something, it says JW is a reboot. Please tell us that its not a reboot?! I’m going bonkers!”
Trevorrow responded with a bold proclamation: “Reboot is a strong word. This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park.”
It’s been rumored that Jurassic World, now opening in theaters June 12 2015, will take place during an open and fully functional Jurassic Park, presumably called “Jurassic World”.
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, and Nick Robinson are all said to be starring. READ MORE
