Alien: Isolation Trailer Forces You to Survive

11 September 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The goal of Sega's upcoming Alien: Isolation video game is simple: navigate a spaceship and stay alive while a deadly alien creature hunts you down. It's a direct play on the atmospheric tension and horror of Ridley Scott's 1979 Alien film, only this time it's Ripley's daughter discovering that in space, no one can hear you scream.

A new Alien: Isolation trailer, the first in a series that celebrate the game going gold, explores the environments that players will have to familiarize themselves with in order to survive. Noise or learning how to avoid making it and/or redirecting it away from your position, can be the difference between life or death.

The best part of the trailer is how it ends, which is something that will likely happen to every player several times through the course of gameplay.

There's No Escape as Alien: Isolation Goes Gold

9 September 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Sega has been turning heads with every look we've gotten so far at their upcoming game, Alien: Isolation.  It looks like it very well could be the Alien game fans have been waiting for (especially after the disastrous release of Colonial Marines).  Today they've announced that the game has gone gold (meaning it's totally done) and to celebrate the event, they've kicked off a new series of trailers.  Come inside to check it out!

I'm not a huge fan of survival horror, or being scared in general, but I have a deep love for the Alien franchise and have been very excited by all that I've seen of this game.  With less than a month to go before release, the wait is certainly getting harder:

Work On Alien: Isolation Wraps Up As Sega Unveils Terrifying New Trailer

9 September 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

To celebrate Alien: Isolation achieving gold status — meaning the first-person scarefest is finished and ready for distribution — publisher Sega has unveiled an eerie new trailer aptly titled No Escape.

The teaser trailer, which you can check out above, is the first of nine short clips which will be released periodically in the build-up to the title’s release in October. Starring our protagonist Amanda Ripley, the footage showcases the kind of terrifying, Outlast-like vulnerability we can expect come release.

In essence, the story of Isolation takes place a full fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s seminal 1979 film and will place players in the shoes of the aforementioned heroine. After travelling into deep space in the search of a wayward flight recorder from the doomed Nostromo, Amanda ends up on board the Sevastopol where a deadly Xenomorph has already made itself at home.

The Essential Films and TV to Stream – September 8th 2014

8 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After last week’s news about Netflix securing The Blacklist for a record fee, a similar story came to light this week concerning the pre Batman prequel series Gotham. Now rather than getting it day and date after Us broadcast as per Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn, Gotham’s entire run will just arrive on Netflix after it’s finished its TV broadcast. Worse news is that this means you have to wait for Channel 5 to get their finger out and schedule it on one of their three channels and then muck it around the schedule just to confuse you further and for it to finish its run there. Kind of takes the wind out the sails doesn’t it? I wouldn’t expect to see Gotham on Netflix until this time next year at best but we will see.

Double Review: Deadly Eyes & Leviathan (Blu-ray)

6 September 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Scream Factory recently gifted us genre fans a double dose of creature feature terrors with their Blu-ray releases of the killer rat flick Deadly Eyes and George P. Cosmatos’ hugely underrated deep sea horror film Leviathan.  While both films aren’t necessarily well-known amongst more casual fans, it’s great to see Scream put such great effort into their presentations for each of these cult classics.

For those who haven’t seen it before, Deadly Eyes (or Rats)is a rather ridiculous (but wonderfully so) early ‘80s nature-run-amok story that plays up the concerns and dangers of modern urban society by way of roided-out killer rat infestations that have a penchant for human flesh. The film takes its premise very seriously, but it’s the use of Daschunds in rat costumes that has given Deadly Eyes something of an unintentional comedic spin, making for a rather uneven horror film.

Exodus: Gods and Kings featurette released online

20th Century Fox has released the first behind-the-scenes look at Ridley Scott’s latest epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings, which debuts this Christmas across cinemas worldwide.

Telling the story of Moses (Christian Bale, The Dark Knight Trilogy), the film is set to go almost head-to-head with the final Hobbit film this Christmas in the grandeur stakes, with Scott reteaming with Gladiator co-writer Steven Zaillian, as well as an eclectic supporting cast including Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Sigourney Weaver (Alien), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), John Turturro (Barton Fink), Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises) and Sir Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3).

So far, it certainly looks pretty epic, and with such a talented cast, it could be a big hit come winter, and you can check out the featurette below…

Exodus: Gods and Kings is released in the Us on December 12th, with a UK release on Boxing Day.

Advance Comic Review and Interview: Prometheus – Fire And Stone #1

4 September 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Published by Dark Horse

Story by Paul Tobin

Art by Juan Ferreyra

Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot

[I have been told that the images on this page may contain potential Spoilers, so be forewarned, I suppose.]

Juan Ferreyra is one of the best artists working in the comics industry, or anywhere for that matter. I always hesitate to say these things because it turns out there’s someone I’ve missed or forgotten to acknowledge, but the fact of the matter is that I will buy any issue of any comic drawn by Ferreyra, even if the story is tripe, because I just want to stare at the pages. His use of watercolor strokes, emotions in faces, and terrifying tentacle monsters are at equal levels of effectiveness. Now he’s on Prometheus with Paul Tobin (for an interview with both Tobin and Ferreyra, click here), wherein one who claims to be inspired by Giger finally gets to draw Xenomorphs, and the results are fantastic.
