While FilmDistrict and TriStar’s Evil Dead continues to be a #1 here in the states, not every fan that’s been dying to see it is getting the chance. Especially in Australia. It seems like an initial wide release for the film has been altered into a limited release in four theaters across the country – and one of those is for only one showing.
We’ve gotten a few emails about this, so we figured we’d spread the word and point you to a couple of petition sites at Change.org and Facebook.
While I’m not sure about the hows and whys around the release plan, I would encourage anyone who clicks on those links to write something to be respectful. I’ve seen a lot of simplistic, angry and erroneous thinking on them – it’s important to realize that people listen more when you intelligently and respectfully plead your case. One way to not get your way is to threaten to steal the movie. Be more original!

Bloody Disgusting in association with Gameloft would like to offer our readers a chance to win themselves an iPad, along with some in game Zombiewood cash! You guys love a good caption contest, we know that. But the stakes are high this time as you can win yourself one sweet piece of technology. So put on your funny pants and head past the break for the rules, and the image you’ll need to make me pee myself laughing with.
Just posted on the official Silent Hill Facebook page is the most comprehensive up to date Silent Hill map yet. This is exciting! I have often dreamed of a completed map of Silent Hill. This map was made by Silent Hill fans Damian Christensen and Anthony Luzier. It includes all we have explored in Silent Hill, including Downpour, and areas a bit outside SH. Check it out past the break!
While I haven’t seen any footage from The Garlock Incident, I have to applaud director Evan J. Cholfin and producer Ariana Farina for the immersive experience they’ve created (DIY style) around the film. The Garlock Incident was shot a little over a year ago in Kern County, CA… but your trail to seeing it is just beginning.
The mission statement of the filmmakers? “ to create an interactive online experience for the social media age–one entrenched in the world of Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, and Twitter, that can be a shared, communal experience for those who have the enthusiasm (and perhaps courage for some) to participate.”
Head inside to get started. READ MORE
While making my way around the blackhole I call Facebook, a couple of my friends shared a link that caught my eye. Huffington Post blogger Kristen Wolfe obviously works in a video game store. Well she POSTED an article about what she was witness to in her store.
I definitely recommend you read the article. It’s about a little kid who specifically wants a purple game controller and a game with a girl in it, a father who is not ok with it, and an older brother who is. It’s a pretty heartwarming, and might even bring a tear to your eye. It’s nice to read things like this once and a while, and to know there are people out in the world who stand up for others.

It seems a lot of games/companies are going to new extremes to get you to buy their games. Such as, releasing mini games (Dead Island on Playstation Home), or other things you can do to earn bonus stuff in the actual game. What happened to the days where I had to actually work my balls off in the game itself to get bonus stuff?
I guess it’s better this way. Resistance Global is an RTS version of Resistance you can play on Facebook and on the Playstation Network. As I stated before, by doing well in Global, you can earn rewards you can use in Resistance 3 on its September 6th release. READ MORE
FlickLaunch, the first movie distribution platform built on Facebook for independent filmmakers, will premiere the horror thriller The Perfect House on October 1, 2011 as a 7-day rental on the film’s Facebook fanpage. Prior to the October 1st premiere, The Perfect House will take the film on a barnstorming 30-city tour. The film is directed by Kris Hulbert and Randy Kent and stars Monique Parent, Felissa Rose, Will Robertson, Andrea Vahl, Chris Raab, Jonathan Tiersten, and John Philbin.
Not every house was meant to be a home. Some houses are just born bad. The Perfect House franchise is the story of such a house. All three films and TPH Origins: John Doesy intertwine in any order to tell a single story about the life and death of the Perfect House.
Each film in the franchise tells separate segments of a seemingly perfect home that is consistently on the market for new occupants. Adding to this unique franchise are the different styles that each installment is shot in and the original way each film connects together.
The original film gives the back story of three home owners spread out over several decades. Filmed as an homage to horror, every story is shot with the horror influences of the time period that each home owner occupies the house. The second film gives us the stories of what happens before and after the first film, and reveals someone desperately working to uncover the secrets of the Perfect House. In the third installment, the birth and death of the house is front and center as the secret origins of the house are finally revealed.
The franchise’s most popular and prolific killer, John Doesy, takes over with his own franchise. TPH Origins: John Doesy delves into the childhood and traumatic experiences that ultimately bring Doesy to the door step of the Perfect House. The Doesy franchise will follow his weekly routine of psychological and physical torture, which claims the lives of over 200 victims during his five year reign of terror.
It’s Wednesday, so I figure a little humor will help make the week go by faster. Therefore, let me tell you an anecdote. My pal Jamie (drummer of Tesseract) took advantage of Facebook’s “Add any friend you want immediately to your group without them being okay with it” function. Normally, I get pissed off in these situations and immediately leave and block that group. However, this group is something so magnificent, so hilarious, that I had to remain a part of it. For, you see, this group is the “Venue C*ck Art” group, a forum where musicians, artists, and whomever so desires, can post pictures of the various male genitalia graffiti they see in venue green rooms across the world. Join the group at the link above.
Here’s a quote from Jamie: ”As any touring musician will know, the walls of most backstage rooms at venues around the world are generally flooded with extremely detailed drawings of male genitalia. This page is here to acknowledge and appreciate the good ones, and SHAME the terrible ones. SHARE”
Check after the jump for the first of what will hopefully be many hysterical images. WARNING: if a drawing of a cowboy penis that looks like a melding of Krang (TMNT) and Audrey II (Little Shop Of Horrors) offends you, go away.

This caught my interest, and why shouldn’t it? A playboy game? As in, yes Playboy Magazine, Hugh Hefner, the bunnies and all. Zynga, the company that makes Farmville and Frontierville is valued at 5.5 billion dollars. E.A. as in Electronic Arts, video game GIANT is valued at 5.2 billion. That is INSANE. It just goes to show you these games aren’t going anywhere.
Any who, in the Playboy game, you are a new millionaire who moves into town, and starts throwing parties, inviting celebs and of course playmates. They also give you sexy pictures as a thank you for inviting them to your parties. Nerds also find their way into your parties, and it’s up to you to keep them out. If you know anything about Facebook games they are addictive, and this one will be no less. I recommend giving it a shot if you’d at least like a good laugh. PLAYBOY PARTY READ MORE
