Developer Techland wants to know if we’re prepared for the special Dying Light announcement they’re planning to throw at us on February 11th. The question comes via a brief teaser trailer, and if you prematurely answered it with a confident “yes!” then it gets serious, asking if you’re “truly prepared.”
At first, I thought I was ready. I even included this game in my list of upcoming horror games that are worth being excited over. Now, I’m not so confident. How about you?
“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC on February 9th with it’s Greg Nicotero directed ninth episode. .
The trailer, titled “Don’t Look Back”, catches us up with some action. “Rick’s group managed to survive the first major attack on the prison, but this time they were not only separated from each other, but also forced to abandon their safe haven. Will the survivors to ever see again, and they can find a new refuge?”

I haven’t watched tonight’s episode of “American Horror Story: Coven” yet, so forgive me if I haven’t watched the below video for next week’s installment. This is one of the few series I watch the night it airs and I don’t want to spoil myself.
In Episode 3.09, “Head”, airing December 11, “Cordelia’s attacker is revealed. Fiona looks to form an alliance with Marie Laveau. Nan learns a disturbing truth about Luke’s past”

Looks like the upcoming expansion for Diablo III might not be called The Dark Below after all. Blizzard has just launched a teaser site titled “Reaper of Souls” and it sounds like it may be related to the expansion. We won’t know for sure until they stop all this foreplay and get right to it at Gamescom, which kicks off on the 21st.
Whatever it is, I’m very much looking forward to returning to Diablo III. The game received a ton of flak for the auction house, online requirements and less than satisfying ending, but it’s still a fantastic game that, like Mass Effect 3, is only remembered for the bad rather than the good.
Oh no. As an “American Horror Story” fan I was already looking forward to the October 9th FX season premiere of “American Horror Story: Coven”. The third season of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s horror anthology television series promises to be bugf*ck insane from the title of the first episode on down to the fact that this show is always out of its mind.
But now I have another reason to look forward to the premiere. These spots always start out awesome, but last year there were like 20 of them! Can we please keep it to 10 and under this year? PLEASE?
Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Alexandra Breckenridge, Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Jamie Brewer, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe, Angela Bassett, Patti Lupone, and Denis O’Hare all star.
Check out the teaser – “Detention” – below.
Episode 3.01 – “Bitchcraft” (09-Oct-2013)
Episode 3.02 – “Boy Parts” (16-Oct-2013)
Episode 3.03 – “Replacements, The” (23-Oct-2013)
It looks like the next update for Funcom’s action/horror/fantasy MMORPG The Secret World will introduce murderous dolls. It’s called “A Dream to Kill,” and according to a post on the game’s website, the update will “offer many new missions and hours of action filled content, but most importantly it will reveal hidden secrets and uncover new and crucial story elements,” where players will “witness the Orochi’s terrible experiments in Transylvania gone horribly wrong.” Sounds intriguing. Trailer after the break.
Tomorrow morning, Microsoft will reveal their follow-up to the Xbox 360 — and yes, I’ll be here to excitedly fill you in as it happens. Sony knows this, so to lure some of the spotlight away from their biggest competitor they’ve unveiled a brief tease of an impending unveiling of what the PlayStation 4 console will look like. Sure, that sentence made sense.
The console’s design was surprisingly absent when Sony first unveiled it back in February, leaving many of us to wonder whether it’s design would mess with the delicate balance of our living room’s feng shui. Unfortunately, we still don’t have an answer to that. What we do have is a batch of close-ups and a blurry teaser, both of which you can enjoy after the jump.
We’ve got a new full length trailer for Season 8 of Showtime’s “Dexter” that quickly catches us up on the events of the previous seasons before launching in to some new footage. As disappointed as I’ve been in the show recently, I might as well check out this new stretch seeing as its the final one.
“Dexter” returns June 30 to Showtime (including Yvonne Strahovski reprising her role on the show) followed by the premiere of “Ray Donovan.”

If you woke up this morning with a craving to watch two guys beat the crap out of each other during a blizzard than boy oh boy, I do think I’m about to make your day. Warner Bros just unveiled a first look at Batman: Arkham Origins — a prequel to Rocksteady’s gritty Batman series developed by Warner Bros Montreal, the studio that brought us the Arkham City Armored Edition for Wii U. In it, Deathstroke and the Dark Knight engage in glorious fisticuffs.
Rocksteady won’t be handling the development of this game, possibly so they can stay focused on the next-gen Batman game they better be working on right now. This teaser is a bit on the short side, but that’s because it’s just a slice of the tasty Batman pie we can look forward to gorging ourselves on — the full trailer is coming May 20th.
The teaser trailer just hit for The World’s End, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright’s new movie that stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan. While this definitely feels more like a teaser than a full trailer – it still introduces a host of crazy sh*t like humanoid blue-eyed aliens along with some giant insect looking guys. Getting a strong Stephen King meets John Carpenter vibe from this one. I also dig that the fence gag is back! This film will complete Wright and Pegg’s Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy.
In theaters August 23 2013, “20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.” READ MORE
We have a new TV Spot from Season 8 of Showtime’s “Dexter” (well it’s 35 seconds of “Dexter” and 10 seconds of “Ray Donovan”) that introduces Dr. Evelyn Vogel (played by Charlotte Rampling) aka “The Psychopath Whisperer.” We also get some new footage from the season, including what looks to ba a few more violent acts on the part of Deb.
“Dexter” returns June 30 to Showtime (including Yvonne Strahovski reprising her role on the show) followed by the premiere of “Ray Donovan.”
Head inside for the clip! We’ve also got a new poster that shows Dex finally under his own shrink wrap! READ MORE
Activision has been quietly teasing the next entry in their annual Call of Duty franchise, and now we finally know a little more about it. The game is Call of Duty: Ghosts, and it’s back in the hands of Modern Warfare series developer Infinity Ward. The game will follow soldiers who shoot bad people, only this time, the good guys are masked.
Lay down your pitchforks Call of Duty fans, I’m only joking. This one actually sounds promising, since they’re finally using a new engine that will bring the experience to current and next-gen consoles. “We’re building a new sub-brand, a new engine, and a lot of new ideas and experiences for our players.” said Mark Rubin, the studio’s executive producer. Check out the live-action teaser after the break.
Shinji Mikami, one of the minds behind Resident Evil and Dino Crisis, unveiled his next game last week, a “pure” survival horror game titled The Evil Within. The live action teaser was definitely one of the more unsettling debuts I’ve seen for a horror game, though that’s unsurprising seeing as it’s the work of the extremely talented Kyle Cooper, who has worked on American Horror Story, The Walking Dead and Se7en. I decided to go through the teaser and capture nearly 40 screenshots from it, which you can enjoy in all their deeply unnerving glory after the break.
Earlier this morning, Bethesda officially announced The Evil Within with a creepy live-action trailer, sans any gameplay. I’m not a fan of trailers that show nothing of the game they’re advertising, because even if the trailer is amazing it doesn’t accurately represent the game.
Thankfully, we’ve also been given a batch of deeply unsettling screenshots that show off what the game will actually look like. After looking through them, The Evil Within looks strikingly similar to Resident Evil 4, which Mikami helmed back when he was with Capcom. The camera, combat, even a few of the enemies and locations. Check them out after the break!
A man makes barbed wire as a four-armed Witch from Left 4 Dead climbs out of a puddle of blood and a man with too much glass in his face stands there looking all creepy. That’s what you can expect from this debut trailer for The Evil Within — previously known as project Zwei.
“We’re incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within,” said Mikami. “My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action.” Watch its intensely creepy live-action debut trailer after the jump.
We’ve got a second trailer for Manborg, the cult favorite sci-fi/fantasy homage coming to select theaters and DVD on April 30, from Dark Sky Films – and it’s even more fun than the last one (which is also included below).
The armies of hell have taken over the Earth, and all that stands in the way of the villainous Count Draculon and humanity’s total extinction is a motley crew of misfits led by the mighty Manborg: a warrior who’s half-man, half-machine, but all hero.
Once a young soldier killed during the first war against hell, Manborg (Matthew Kennedy, Lazer Ghosts 2) reawakens in the future, rebuilt as a walking weapon and mankind’s last hope. Struggling to learn the secret of his origins, Manborg unwittingly befriends a post-apocalyptic Australian punker (Conor Sweeney, Heart of Karl), a knife-wielding vixen (Meredith Sweeney, Father’s Day) and a kung fu master before finally squaring off against Count Draculon (Adam Brooks, Father’s Day) in a desperate and bloody bid to take back the Earth.
This campy, comedic action flick, which Variety called “enjoyably ridiculous,” is also an affectionate and clever tribute to fan favorite ’80s films and videogames like The Terminator, RoboCop and “Mortal Kombat.” READ MORE
We’ve got a trailer and poster for a new horror film out of the outback called Bunyip, which features an aboriginal legend come to life.
Bunyip was directed by both Miri Stone and Denby Weller. Weller also stars in the film along with Sam Lyndon, Candice Story, David Richards, Brinley Meyer, Kristiano Carrol and Andy Marsh.
In the film, “When a team-building hike strays into the territory of an unknown Australian predator, this group of tech-savvy, thrill-seeking city folk will discover that some legends have teeth…”

Paramount has issued a new TV spot for Marc Forster’s World War Z, their zombie movie raising the dead on June 21. It’s pretty much the same thing as the trailer but only takes 25% of the time.
Starring Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and David Morse, the one-sheet displays a mile-high piling of rotting, decaying zombies attacking a helicopter.
“The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop a pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.”
Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen. READ MORE
Netflix will premiere “Hemlock Grove,” from producer Eli Roth (who also directed the pilot), on April 19th. As is Netflix’s business model, all 13 episodes will be made available on the same day so you guys can gorge yourselves. But their teasers are exemplifying a disturbing trend, they’re getting shorter and shorter. Remember last week;’s 22 second teaser? This one is half the size. “Hemlock Grove” – please don’t pull an “AHS” on us in the teaser department, ok?
“Hemlock Grove is a riveting one-hour murder mystery that revolves around the residents of a former Pennsylvania steel town. When 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell is brutally murdered, any of Hemlock’s peculiar inhabitants – or killer creatures – could be suspects. Through the investigation, the town’s seamier side is exposed, revealing nothing is what it seems. Beautiful, terrifying and graphic, Hemlock Grove is unlike anything else in its genre.”
From Hostel and Cabin Fever director Eli Roth, the series stars Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Penelope Mitchell and Freya Tingley.

MGM and Screen Gems’ release the full trailer for their Carrie remake tomorrow, but Entertainment Tonight just aired a brief, high quality tease of it. Some of it looks cool, but I’m not sold on the floating books stuff. Maybe once I see it in the context of the whole trailer! Or… maybe once I see it in the context of the whole film! I roll old school sometimes.
In theaters October 18, the Kimberly Peirce-directed redo is “A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.” Alex Russell, Ansel Elgort, Gabriella Wilde, Judy Greer and Portia Doubleday also star.

Why bother with WWE Studios when you can have Pro-Wrestlers Vs. Zombies?! At the very least it looks like it gets down to the absolute essentials with zero time wasted. I particularly love the moment depicted above.
The film was directed by Cody Knotts and filmed in Parkersburg, West Virginia. It stars Rowdy Roddy Piper, “The Franchise” Shane Douglas, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Matt Hardy, and Kurt Angle.
I feel like wasting any more time would be against what Pro-Wrestlers Vs. Zombies stands for. Head inside to get split in half! READ MORE
Kurtis J. Wiebe, the mind behind “Peter Panzerfaust” and “Green Wake”, is gearing up for a brand new series, and he’s sent us the first two teaser images to showcase a couple of his female leads. Depicted below are Hannah and Violet. Wiebe describes his new series as “Tank Girl” and Bridesmaids meets “Lord of the Rings”. He also promises monsters and blood. Stay tuned for more teasers on Monday! READ MORE
Last month Zombie Studios, the makers of the Saw video games, announced their new project, a new survival horror game called Daylight. It sounds promising, but you could say that about a lot of games. You really can’t begin to get to know a game until you’ve seen it in action, and thanks to this teaser, I can confidently say that this one looks extremely creepy. The atmosphere, visuals, even the subtle movements of your character’s hands — it all looks really good. I’m looking forward to seeing more of it, and hopefully soon.
I’ve begin to hate haunting/possession movies recently because nothing ever happens in them except a few people bending over backwards. Big deal, lots of people have scoliosis. But director James Wan (Saw, Insidious) The Conjuring (previously The Warren Files) looks like he’s aware of those pitfalls and is sidestepping them without sacrificing character. This teaser focusses almost exclusively on Lili Taylor’s character, so I imagine we’ll be getting that features the whole ensemble soon enough.
In particular I think the blindfold scare at the beginning is particularly well done. It’s a variation on a gag we’ve seen before, for sure, but it’s pulled off with confidence and restraint and as such wrings new scares out of it. I spent some time on the set of this movie last year and look forward to sharing that report with you in the coming months.
In the film, “Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, “The Conjuring” tells the horrifying tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.” Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Lili Taylor and Ron Livingston star.
This movie apparently had insanely high scores from test audiences, hence the summer release date. Wan is also busy filming Insidious Chapter 2 at the moment. Head inside for the trailer and images! Clap if you want more!!! READ MORE
