David Harley wasn’t a fan of the latest poster for the Steven Quale-directed Final Destination 5 3D, saying it didn’t do anything to separate itself from the horrid fourth film, The Final Destination. I’m thinking he may enjoy this newly release international one sheet that integrates the new plot with the well-known FD skull. Update: We have added an English-language version inside, thanks to reader ‘jarredah’.
In this fifth installment starring Miles Fisher, Arlen Escarpeta, Nicholas D’Agosto, Ellen Wroe, Meghan Ory, David Koechner, Tony Todd, P.J. Byrne, Emma Bell, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood and Courtney B. Vance, “Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.”
Warner Bros. will release in theaters August 12.
The posters for Final Destination 5 have been pretty lackluster so far. Just a skull with the number 5? (that bridge poster sucked too, Photoshop and bullshit never work well together.) You’d figure if they really wanted to make an iconic poster, they’d want to create something that didn’t remind you of the last entry. But, here we are with another skull poster, this time with nails/rebar/whatever flying through its mouth and eye sockets (I’m really starting to think the guys who make these have an ocular fetish). The most interesting thing about the new one-sheet is that the “in 3D” line has gone from being fairly prominent to almost non-existent and tucked away in the corner. That’s definitely not a bad thing… Check past the break for the poster.

San Francisco Bay Area gore legend, Autopsy, has launched a mini-site
in anticipation of their first EP of newly recorded tracks since officially reforming last year, titled, ‘The Tomb Within’. The new mini-site features audio samples of each of the EP’s five gut-wrenching tracks, as well as an in studio video trailer for a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the forthcoming musical bloodbath, to be released on October 5th on Peaceville Records.
‘The Tomb Within’ EP was recorded in mid-July 2010 at Fantasy Studios with Adam Munoz, and unites the original trio of Chris Reifert, Danny Coralles, and Eric Cutler, joined on bass by Joe Trevisano (ex-Abscess). It is the band’s first album of newly recorded tracks in over a decade. Cover art is supplied by renowned fantasy/horror artist Matt Cavotta.
Let me start this off by saying that I’m a big fan of Daath. ‘The Concealers’ was a contender for one of my favorite albums of 2009. So to say that I was excited when I heard that guitarists Eyal Levi and Emil Werstler were going to put out an instrumental album in the same style of music is an understatement. Add to that the fact that Sean Reinert of Cynic/Ex-Death was announced as the drummer and I was sold. I love a good instrumental record and this sounded like something fresh and exciting that I would love once I got my grubby hands all over it.
Recently I got the honor of interviewing legendary Richard Christy about everything from his new band Charred Walls Of The Damned to what movie scared him the most as a kid and also what movie he’s looking forward to scaring him the most this year.
