The Haunted Mansion Is Getting Animated

17 July 2014 3:55 PM, PDT

The Haunted Mansion is celebrating its 45th anniversary and Disney Television is giving it a present.  The studio has announced they are developing an animated special based on the popular ride. 

Making it even more exiting is who they have tapped for the project.  Gris Grimly has been named executive producer and art director. 

Gris Grimly is an acclaimed horror genre artist and children’s book illustrator.  He had spent the last several years attached to Guillermo del Toro’s* dark fantasy Pinocchio project but that was shelved in 2013 (supposedly do to Frankenweenie’s failure to perform).

Check out some of his concept art for that aborted film along with some illustrations from his Frankenstein book to get a feel for what the Haunted Mansion special may look like.

The 12 Monkeys Series Trailer Time Travels Here From 1995

16 July 2014 1:56 PM, PDT

Syfy has just released the first trailer for their upcoming adaptation of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys.  The new series appears to be following the same story that film did rather than some sort of spin-off or continuation of the film. However, this is the first trailer that may only represent the pilot for the series. The show’s executive producer Richard Suckle has stated that they aren’t bringing the show to Sdcc this year as it “coincides with when we start shooting.  We wanted to put the show first as we’re set to premiere in January.”  So if they are just about to start shooting for a January premiere, they probably don’t have much footage to work with.

Have a look.  What do you think? 

Based on the 1995 film directed by Terry Gilliam, "12 Monkeys" follows the journey of a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who is »

Hidden In The Woods Gets A New Trailer

15 July 2014 9:19 PM, PDT

The Chilean film Hidden in the Woods gained a bit of noteriaty upon its release a couple years back. It was described as "The bastard child of a Ruggero Deodato/Sam Peckinpah/Gaspar Noé pile-up gestated in the loins of Roberta Findlay" and "a deranged frenzy". An English language remake was quickly put into the works, actually being announced a few weeks prior to the original’s North American premiere at Fantasia Fest 2012.  That film was produced by Michael Biehn and Jennifer Blanc, with Biehn also taking a lead role.  Following in the footsteps of such directors as Michael Haneke and Takashi Shimizu, Patricio Valladares once again took the director’s chair.

The plot has remained unchanged.  Hidden in the Woods tells the story of Two sisters, who have been raised in isolation, subjected to the torment of their abusive, drug dealing father. When they finally decide to report him to the police, »

Amoeba Eats Student's Eyeballs

15 July 2014 2:55 PM, PDT

I am lucky enough to have fairly decent eyesight, only really needing glasses for nighttime driving.  However, if I did need to wear corrective lenses full time, I believe that I would stick to good old fashion glasses.  I don’t like the idea of sticking things in my eyeballs let alone the hassles of trying to find them if they pop out and keeping them clean.  That last one seems like a no-brainer, if something is going inside your eye, you want it to be hygienic.  A Taiwanese student is learning a hard lesson about the dangers of neglecting your lenses.

Lian Kao, a 23 year old student, failed to replace her 30 day contacts for over 6 months.  She says that the pressures of her studies lead her to simply forget to change her monthly lenses.  When she finally went to the hospital, the doctors removed the half a year old »

Pair of Chimps Attend Screening of Dawn of the Planet Of The Apes

15 July 2014 1:01 PM, PDT

Tempting fate? Playing with fire?  This next story certainly qualifies.  

Chimps Vali and Sugriva were taken to the opening night of the new Planet of the Apes movie where they sat in attendance with the 1000 other movie goers at the BigD Auditorium in Myrtle Beach.

Bhagavan Antle, director of the Myrtle Beach Safari where the chimps reside, had the following to say about the simian cinephiles:

"The older one, Vali, is a very bright guy, he's watched the Lord Of The Rings many times, and he could follow the whole plot of the movie. He loves to clap - when he likes something he claps, so he clapped for the good guys, and when chimps don't like what's happening they hoot or bark, so when the bad guy came on he was barking.".

Here's hoping that they didn't pick up any ideas from Koba.

8 Bit Games - Fulci’s Gateway to Hell

15 July 2014 10:20 AM, PDT

The Hacktivision guys (Doc Terror, artist Frank Browning, and musician Sean O'Connor) are at it again.  The team that brought you Friday the 13th Lives,  Zombie, and Demons is back, this time with trio of faux 8 bit games you are going to wish were real.

The 3 games come from the Italian Godfather of Gore, Luci Fulci;  City Of The Living Dead, The Beyond, and House By The Cemetery.  Here is the trailer:


The idea for this trilogy (if it were real) would be you could purchase each game individual and enjoy it as such, but if you wanted the full experience, all three would be available in a limited edition package.  Why would you want all three?  Because the games are stackable, allowing for variations on game play that incorporate all three games.  

Also, there would be a slew of cameos

Head on over to Doc Terror's blog for more on these games, »
