Speaking of Scream Factory, their Blu-ray release of The Fog will be the first time that film has landed on the high-def format in the US. And they’ve just unveiled the cover for their product! As always, you can just flip the insert around if you want the original poster.
“Look what just rolled in…our newly retro-styled designed artwork for John Carpenter’s THE FOG! This new “remix” of the ghostly classic comes to us from artist Justin Osbourn. As always with our Collector’s Editions, the reverse wrap will have the original theatrical key art (the iconic one with Jamie Lee Curtis bolted up against the door).”
The DVD & Blu-ray go on sale July 30th. An announcement of the bonus features is forthcoming. Head inside for the art! READ MORE
One of the best parts about a Dead Space game is getting a good look at the incredibly demented creatures that are going to be destroying you. Ripping you limb from limb, and playing around with your giblets. Every creature is straight from the depths of your nightmares, and they keep getting better and better. If you head past the break you can get an inside look at some of the Necros you’ll be seeing in Dead Space 3 along with descriptions of them. Dead Space 3 is so close I can feel my space madness approaching. February 5th on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
Warner Home Video announced Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, starring Johnny Depp, for home video on October 2 a few weeks back. And now they’ve gotten around to releasing the artwork.
“The story focuses on Barnabas Collins (Depp), who was transformed into a vampire by a jilted lover (Eva Green’s witch Angelique) way back in the 1700s and buried. He’s just been dug up, and attempts to reintegrate with his descendants, led by Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elizabeth and Jonny Lee Miller’s Roger – despite the fact that Angelique is still around and still not in a forgiving mood.” write your review here.
The DVD will contain the featurette The Collinses: Every Family Has Its Demons and the the Blu-ray will have that featurette, a Maximum Movie Mode option, plus a ton of deleted scenes. Maybe the deleted scenes will help the movie make sense? Look for it in stores on October 2nd.
While these images aren’t directly from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, they definitely share strands of the same DNA (to co-opt a talking point from the film). Russian artist Alex Kozhanov (aka Gutalin) is (quite evidently) influenced by H.R. Giger and was hired to recreate the derelict ship from Alien for the film. While these images aren’t from Prometheus – I suppose you’ll have to wait for the film to see the breadth of his design work for it – they are certainly highly evocative of the Alien universe and are thus worth a look. Thanks to BD reader “Jon” for the heads up.
“With ‘Prometheus,’ Scott creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”
In theaters June 8, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Benedict Wong, Emun Elliott, Ben Foster, Patrick Wilson all star.

Resident Evil will soon be making its first foray into mobile 3D gaming, and while that alone is pretty damn exciting, the idea of alternate costumes might even be more exciting than mowing down waves of non-zombies in 3D. Maybe. For some people. Like, the people that actually take time to think about what they should wear, as opposed to my morning technique that includes reaching into my closet in sleepy daze, grabbing something soft and throwing it on. For those people, alternate costumes are a pretty big deal.
So after the jump you can find the secondary costumes for the game’s eight playable characters, and most of them are pretty cool. HUNK has a badass Grim Reaper outfit with knived boots, Wesker has a cool mutation going on that he should probably have a Dermatologist take a look at, and Clair’s taken a more formal approach to kickassery.

Torchlight was well worth the wait for it to make its way to the Xbox 360 and after its critical and commercial success the chances of its sequel doing the same are looking pretty good. Runic isn’t content to simply improve on some of the issues the original had, instead, they’re going to be adding some major features to the game. Some of the confirmed additions include co-op (likely to be between 2-4 players), improved character customization, four character classes (Torchlight had three), multiple hub towns and a much longer campaign.
Since a dungeon crawler is only as good as the monsters you’ll be spending most of your time slaying it’s important for them to be pretty damn cool. As we wait for Torchlight 2′s big reveal at E3 this summer here’s a look at six of the potentially dozens of monsters we’ll be stabbing, bisecting, incinerating, poisoning, freezing and electrocuting when the game releases sometime later this year.

Southern California’s Avenged Sevenfold have just unveiled the artwork for their upcoming album, Nightmare, which in-stores on July 27th. The band will also be releasing a special limited edition of their upcoming album on Warner Bros. Records. Nightmare was produced by Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Eminem) and mixed by noted engineer Andy Wallace.
In August, Avenged Sevenfold will set out co-headlining the first annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival with Disturbed. Also on the bill are Stone Sour, Halestorm, and Hell Yeah.

From the Roadrunner Records website, we get a little update on Rob Zombie’s Hellbilly Deluxe II which hits stores February 2nd.
Rob Zombie’s 4th album, the long awaited “Hellbilly Deluxe 2″, comes a dozen years after the first installment. Even though there were two studio albums in between – 2001’s The Sinister Urge and 2006’s Educated Horses, II seamlessly picks up where Hellbilly Deluxe I left off.
Featuring the infectious single “Sick Bubblegum,” which sounds like it was written during the original sessions, but remains modern, relevant and forward-thinking, “What?,” a catchy, distorted track that screams of signature Zombie, “Werewolf, Baby!,” another sick ‘n twisted rock ‘n roll anthem, and other electric romps like “Jesus Frankenstein” and the thunderous “Mars Needs Women,” Hellbilly Deluxe 2 is Rob Zombie in 2010: leaner and meaner, with the same snarl and appreciation for all things dark and a little bit dastardly.
It’s no easy feat to record a companion-style follow-up 12 years later, but Rob Zombie makes it look and sound easy. “This was one of the least stressful records I’ve ever made.” says Zombie. “The songs fell together in record time. For some reason the best songs always come easy.”
Hellbilly Deluxe II will be out February 2nd, 2010 through Roadrunner’s Loud & Proud imprint. Read on for the full tracklisting. READ MORE
The Pulse of Radio reports: MUDVAYNE revealed the cover art for its upcoming self-titled album earlier this week, but the catch is that the artwork will only be visible under a black light. And not just the cover art either: the entire packaging will be white, with everything — including lyrics, credits, inside art and photos — only seen with a black light. Frontman Chad Gray told The Pulse of Radio how the idea came together. “Because we did the black album with (second album) ‘The End Of All Things To Come’, with this record I wanted to do a white record. So I started talking to some people in the art departments about things, and wanted to know if they made a black light reflective ink. It turns out they actually do have an ink or whatever, and it’s awesome, because the record is, in the truest sense, it’s a white album. If you pull out the inlay card, it’s all white until you put a black light on it. And when you put a black light on it, everything shows up.”
Listen to “Heard It All Before” from the upcoming album
The album is set to release December 22nd, features artwork by tattoo artist Paul Booth (awesome), and will be available as multiple versions including,
- standard CD
- glow-in-the-dark vinyl
- a limited edition of 100,000 copies featuring a keychain-sized black light
- a limited edition of 1,000 copies containing the album on CD, the vinyl version, a 24-inch black light, a black light reactive poster and a black light reactive decal READ MORE
