We’ve been planning this for a while now and the entire Bloody-Disgusting team is incredibly excited to announce that March is EVIL DEAD MONTH here at the site! We know most of you are incredibly stoked for the upcoming remake from director Fede Alvarez (and producers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell), and so are we – it looks amazing! We plan on having a review when it plays next week at SXSW a full month ahead of its April 5th release date – along with exclusive interviews with the cast and crew – in addition to all of the other insanely cool stuff we have planned.
But Evil Dead Month isn’t just just about the remake. In fact, I’d wager that most of the material you’re going to see here during the next month will focus on the original films (Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army Of Darkness). As a team we’ll be talking about our favorite moments from them, why they work, what their key differences are and the overarching mythology of the franchise. Not only that, but you’ll be getting plenty of [Random Cool] installments featuring long forgotten artifacts from the Evil Dead era of the 80′s. Not enough for you? How about revisits to the old video games and soundtracks? Yeah, we’re doing everything.
Also, we’ll be running a “Deadite Of The Day” contest. We’ll make a more formal post in the coming weeks with all of the rules and regulations, but get your fan art, pictures of your Evil Dead trophies or even original YouTube videos ready. Whatever makes you a true deadite, really. We’ll feature a winner every weekday from March 25th – April 7th.
In the meantime, get ready for all of your Evil Dead needs to be met. The first piece drops in just a few minutes!

I did it! I made a list. Put your shocked faces on. After Adam REPORTED that there is hope for a sequel to Shadows of the Damned after the game was lacking in sales I got excited. I also got to thinking about how awesome the game is, and how it seems like a lot of people don’t realize that.
So, I decided to make a list of many of the excellent reasons why you should pick this game up. Also, Adam got me all riled up because he was pretty convinced I would never get it done because I’m a slacker. Well I cranked it out in one night, suck it Dodd! Head past the break for the awesomeness you missed out on. READ MORE
BurnTheBlueSky here. The following is taken from my partner in podcastery Kiel/Reset. It is his top games of 2010 list, so, enjoy!
A year that was birthed with a scream of great titles and ended with holiday releases that housed the biggest entertainment sale opening of all time; 2010 was quite a year for video games. This year had a big push in downloadable games and also the catch up game of Microsoft and Sony in the motion controlled games market. Here is my humble list of games and their explanations.

Terrifying moments aren’t just limited to horror games; even the most innocent and huggable of children’s titles can house within it a level filled with twisted mockeries of sanity that bring us to the brink of madness before killing us and forcing us to start over again. What makes these levels all the more frightening is their sudden appearance, in a game we would’ve never expected such an experience.
We’ve toiled away spending hundreds, possibly thousands of hours researching dozens of games across all imaginable platforms just so we could be sure to give you the definite list on the 15 shit-out-your-spine scariest moments in non-horror games. So go ahead dear reader, and muse over our list, vigorously disagree with it, and tell us just how wrong we are. Come on, we can take it. READ MORE
