The folks in Amnesia developer Frictional Games’ survival horror game SOMA seem to have it pretty rough. Nothing but complaints from these people. “People are dying,” “Machines tried to eat my face,” nothing but whine, whine, whine. In this latest trailer for the upcoming game — due sometime next year — we get to eavesdrop on another conversation being had. Apparently, lots of folks are committing suicide.
It all started when Titan Comics acquired the rights to bring the English translation of “Snow Piercer” to North America, a book we’ve been waiting to read for three decades (review here). Now, Titan continues their awesome initiative to bring in more well-known European comics, the first of which are “Elric: The Ruby Throne” and “Void”.
“Elic: The Ruby Throne” is the first collected edition of an adaptation of comics featuring Michael Moorcock’s infamous character, Elric. “Void” is a sci-fi thriller from the minds of Sean Phillips and Herik Hanna. Both are expected to ship in September, with a wave of other Euro books to follow. Check out all the details below. READ MORE
Okay, seriously, if you’re not reading this series by now, you’re making a mistake. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla have taken one of the most innocent and iconic series in the history of western comics and turned it into a horror masterpiece. Aguirre-Sacasa is weaving a splendid tale and Francavilla is delivering some sublime Argento-influenced art.
“Afterlife with Archie” #4 drops today. Hit the jump to take a look at some pages and a trailer. READ MORE
Telltale’s The Walking Dead continues with A House Divided, the second episode in the series’ solid-so-far second season. All That Remains got that boulder rolling, now it’s up to this episode to give it a swift Chris Redfield punch to keep that momentum going. Find out if that’s the case in my review.
Last week, Fine Fine Titans vocalist Jennifer Bartlett shared with us her Top 5 Women In Horror list. It’s a fantastic list as it named women that aren’t the standard, go-to, mainstream choices, such as Jamie Lee Curtis or Danielle Harris. It’s the list of a true horror fan, one who watches more than the famous titles and digs deeper into the underbelly of our beloved genre.
Now we get to see Jennifer as a representative of her own craft, a fierce frontwoman of a post-hardcore band that aims to grip you by the throat and make sure you don’t leave without some bruises that’ll require a lot of explanation the next day.
To that end, we’re bringing you the exclusive music video premiere of the band’s latest single “Dance Of The Omega”, which was edited, produced, and directed by Three Goats Moving Pictures. The video mixes performance footage with a strange, animal costume filled surreal journey. Give it a view down below and make sure to keep your eyes and ears open for their upcoming Omega EP!

Paul D’Amour, the original bassist for progressive rock/metal band Tool, seemed like he was out of the game for a while after his departure before Aenima‘s release. However, he resurfaced in 2012 with the fantastic Feersum Ennjin self-titled debut, which is an album you definitely need to check out if you haven’t heard it.
Now D’Amour is back with a new project called Lesser Key, which also features Andrew Zamudio, Brett Fanger, and Justin Hanson. The band will be releasing their debut EP on April 1st via Sumerian Records. It was produced by Sylvia Massy, who has worked with System Of A Down, Johnny Cash, and, fittingly enough, Tool. Below is a teaser clip of several songs from the EP.
You can pre-order the EP in various packages here. READ MORE
While I used to be a crowdsourcing grinch, I’ve since turned around and have become quite the fan of the new funding networks.
Deadline reports on a new option for those of you aspiring filmmakers – debuting in time for SXSW is Tentsquare, created by Modernciné and Modern Distributors CEO and filmmaker Andrew van den Houten (The Woman, All Cheerleaders Die, Jug Face). READ MORE

Work is going to have to wait as I creepily stare at this photo of Jessica Alba for a few hours…
While we already shared these images out of the latest issue of EW, we now have clean versions of the first stills from Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, targeted for theaters on August 22, 2014.
Jessica Alba returns as exotic dancer Nancy Callahan. Clearly, she’s aging like fine wine as this still is snake-charming me into submission.
You’ll also see Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny (thank God he doesn’t have Bruce Willis’ nose for this role), and Mickey Rourke as Marv. READ MORE
Mezco expands their ever-growing line of hit Chucky collectibles with one of the most frequently requested items: “Good Guy” Chucky.
Unlike the scarred and battle-damaged look Chucky normally displays, people have tried to destroy him in 6 films so far, this version represents the cleaner, earlier Chucky. His trademark outfit is un-slashed, his face is not yet mauled. Just as he did in his films, Chucky has lots to say, from his trademark “My name is Chucky” to far more sinister phrases.
The star of the Child’s Play films, Chucky stands 15″ tall and features real cloth Good Guys clothing, 11 points of articulation and his trademark orange hair and realistic glass-like eyes.
Each Chucky comes packaged in his own collector friendly window box based on the original box design seen in the films. READ MORE
One of my biggest issues with Stake Land is that the world is a bit too big for the condensed story. This issue will soon be resolved when Dark Sky’s successful genre film becomes a television series…
The Wrap reports that Jim Mickle and writer/actor Nick Damici are on the verge of teaming again for the small screen version of the post-apocalyptic vampire tale. MPI/Dark Sky’s Greg Newman, who executive produced the movie, is also involved.
The series would begin seven years after the end of the film, and would involve many new species of vampires. READ MORE

An action-packed thriller, “Moon Knight” #1 delivers top-notch writing and stylish artwork to reinvigorate a hero that has had a tough time in the past. This is a clever and wicked take on the costumed vigilante genre, and it’s exactly what Moon Knight deserves.

A Nightmare on Elm Street meets Phantom of the Opera meets Kabuki theaters? Yes please!
Jerome Sable’s musical horror comedy Stage Fright is now officially my most anticipated midnighter at this weekend’s SXSW Film Festival.
Magnet has released an absolutely epic red band trailer for the slasher that’s mucked in blood and laughs. By the time it’s over you’ll be giving it a standing ovation, guaranteed!
While it debuts at the fest, you won’t have to wait long to see at home: Magnet will release the film in its Ultra VOD program, launching it on iTunes and On Demand on April 3 and following with a theatrical release on May 9. READ MORE
Satan’s newborn baby has been discharged…
Fox Home Entertainment has announced that Radio Silence’s (V/H/S) found-footage Devil’s Due (read our review) will be arriving on Blu-ray and DVD April 29.
Extra features include: deleted scenes, audio commentary, director’s photo album, and “Radio Silence: A Hell of a Tea”.
“After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple finds themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy.

If you remember, we played the Slender inspired indie horror game Haunted Memories back in July. It looked and played great, even if it was a member of the growing legion of Slenderman games we were — and still are, to a certain degree — being inundated with following the success of Hadley’s The Eight Pages. It’s second episode recently released, so I figured now would be as good a time as any to return to the game to see what’s new.
The good thing is episode two is nothing like the first. Unfortunately (for me), it’s very similar to Kraven Manor, a terrifying game where you’re chased by mannequins. Watch me lose my damn mind after the jump.
It took a little longer than I would’ve liked to get here, but the latest episode in Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Game finally hit Steam and PS3 today. If you’re planning on playing it elsewhere, you’ll need to be a tiny bit more patient, as it won’t arrive on Xbox 360 until tomorrow, March 5, and iOS on March 6. Telltale says the Vita version should release by the end of the month.
I finished the episode a few minutes ago — it’s very good, even if it has a few too many lulls. Look for our official review of A House Divided to go live very soon.
It’s crazy how long ago I saw the sales art for Mr. Jones, I’m sure my exposure to the film dates way back to before they started shooting, so I’m definitely looking forward to checking it out when the film hits Blu-ray and DVD on May 6th from Anchor Bay Films.
Having premiered at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in 2013, Mr. Jones will also have an exclusive Los Angeles limited theatrical engagement beginning May 2nd.
“Scott (Jon Foster of Stay Alive) and Penny (Sarah Jones of “Sons Of Anarchy”) just moved to a remote cabin to escape the pressures of the world and breathe new life into their art. But they’ll soon discover they are not alone: an infamously reclusive artist – known only as ‘Mr. Jones’ – lives nearby. He doesn’t like to be disturbed, and only comes out at night when he drags his strange, sinister sculptures deep into the woods. When Scott and Penny’s curiosity leads them too close for Mr. Jones’ comfort, he plunges the young couple into a nightmare world of mayhem, madness and mind-bending terror.”
Diane Neal (“Law & Order: SVU”), Mark Steger (I Am Legend) and David Clennon (John Carpenter’s The Thing) co-star in this startling tale from debut director Karl Mueller (screenwriter of Xavier Gens’ The Divide). READ MORE

We’ve got some images from the new film by director James Cullen Bressack (To Jennifer, Hate Crime and 13/13/13, Pernicious, and they definitely don’t shy away from the gore.

With their next project, the Nintendo 3DS exclusive survival horror game Cult County, indie developer Renegade Kid aims to “disturb and scare the players” by not holding back in terms of mature content. This comes from a recent chat with Siliconera, where co-founder Jools Watsham shed a bit more light on the upcoming game.
Cult County was revealed at PAX East last year. It’s not due to release on the 3DS’s eShop until sometime in 2015.
