Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed Review

22 August 2014 11:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Vampires have had a long-running connection to the world of gaming, whether it be through the iconic Castlevania franchise, or adaptations of hit shows and films such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Bram Stoker’s Dracula. While the blood-sucking creatures have had a less-than-successful 2014 (the less said about Lords of Shadow 2, the better), developer Acquire has introduced their own spin on the creatures with the release of Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed.

Set in Akihabara, one of Japan’s uber-popular shopping districts, Akiba’s Trip centers around a young hero named Nanashi. In a scenario that hits a little too close to home for this critic, Nanashi is broke and in desperate need of a job. However, after answering a mysterious job posting online, our protagonist finds himself chained to a table and turned into a Synthister, or someone who feeds upon others’ life energy. Before he can »

Read an Exclusive Excerpt from The Delicate Dependency

13 August 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From Bram Stoker’s Dracula to Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend and beyond, different literary takes on vampires have made their marks, including The Delicate Dependency. Written by the late Michael Talbot and initially published in 1982, this highly regarded vampire novel is being released in a new edition by Valancourt Books, and they’ve provided us with an exclusive excerpt from the first chapter.

“They are cool to the touch and alluringly beautiful in their ageless youth. Their laughter seduces, their brilliance beguiles. They guard the secrets of science and history, and the answers to the mysteries of life and death lie within their vastly superior knowledge. In centuries past, they were known as the Illuminati. They are the vampire.

Dr. John Gladstone, a scientist in Victorian London, is thrust into their world after his carriage runs over a young man of angelic beauty named Niccolo. When Niccolo kidnaps Gladstone’s child and vanishes, »

We recently reported that Alien and Predator were invading Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, and now it’s been revealed that both locations will host another monster, albeit a more human one.

‘A Storm in the Stars’ to Feature Elle Fanning as Frankenstein Author Mary Shelley

31 July 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.” Mary Shelley, the author of this compelling line and many more in her groundbreaking and now legendary 1818 gothic novel, Frankenstein, will be the subject of an upcoming romantic drama period film. Titled A Storm in the Stars, the movie will be helmed by the first female director out of Saudi Arabia, Haifaa Al-Mansour, and actress Elle Fanning has just signed on to portray the famous writer.

THR reports that Elle Fanning will play the 17-year-old version of literary lover Mary Wollstonecraft, aka Mary Shelley, just one year before she penned the epic novel, Frankenstein. The movie will focus on the blossoming romantic relationship between Mary and poet Percy Shelley and explore how Mary was ahead of her time, as she didn’t allow society’s gender prejudices to hold her back from writing an extraordinary book that is now, along with Bram Stoker’s Dracula, »

Films paid for almost entirely by a wealthy(ish) benefactor

31 July 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Without the help of some brave investors, or the pockets of their makers, the following films would never have existed...

It's now a fairly common mantra that you'd be a fool to put up all of your own personal money into a feature film. By all means invest, but share the risk, or throw a few quid at Kickstarter.

Paying for the bulk of the negative/hard drive yourself, and leaving your own assets exposed? Utter lunacy.

Not that anyone told this lot...

The Passion Of The Christ Paid for by: Mel Gibson

For some time, Mel Gibson had, alongside his acting roles, been heavily invested in his production company, Icon. As such, he had two significant ways to earn money, and he needed both of them when it came to making The Passion Of The Christ.

This is the kind of film that studios run a mile from. All »

Who Are The Top 20 Vampires in Books?

22 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Vampires have been and will always be a wonderful creature that runs through the pages of comic books, graphic novels and literary books, but these few stand out as some of the best of the lot. Of course choosing vampires in literature is always a daunting task, and as such, is entirely subjective.

1. Lestat from The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice

Lestat de Lioncourt from Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. “The Brat Prince” has helped form what many see as the template for how a vampire should be in modern day fiction. His boldness, enthusiasm, defiance and charm has made him the iconic vampire of the 20th and 21st century. You can begin to read his exploits in the first book of the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice in ‘Interview With A Vampire‘.

‘Dracula Untold’ Set Visit: This is Not Your Grandfather’s Dracula

15 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Long before Bram Stoker introduced readers to Count Dracula in 1897, vampire-like creatures have haunted folklore tales across the globe. Tales of soul-sucking demons and blood-thirsty supernatural creatures even terrified the Romans. The monsters evolved throughout the centuries, spiraling off into different mythologies, one of which took hold in the 18th and 19th centuries – as storytellers began to define the “vampire.” Since that time, the Dracula character has become synonymous with Vampire stories and, as a result, the evildoer has been depicted countless times on the big (and small) screen.

Bela Lugosi was the first actor to depict Dracula in a feature production, in Universal Pictures’ 1931 Dracula film, with over a dozen other performers portraying the character (across various adaptations) in the ...

'Dracula Untold': Luke Evans has his 'own fangs' - but can he kill as a leading man?

15 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If nothing else, Luke Evans has one distinct physical attribute that makes him the perfect choice to play Dracula. “I have my own fangs,” jokes the actor on the set of forthcoming origin actioner “Dracula Untold.” And he does – look at any photo where the “Fast & Furious 6” baddie is showing his teeth and you’ll notice his prominent canines immediately. Fortuitous? Certainly. But of course, his pearlies aren’t what bagged him the part. Being Luke Evans did. The Welsh actor has been such a ubiquitous big-screen presence over the last several years that it’s easy to forget that his first major Hollywood film, 2010’s “Clash of the Titans,” is only four years old.  Since then he’s racked up quite an impressive resume, from Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Three Musketeers” to sword-n-sandals actioner “Immortals” to “F&F 6” to his role as the Bard in the last two »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Simon Merrells on Judas Ghost

10 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Stepping out of the haunted village hall for a break from a dance with the supernatural, Simon Merrells took the time to rendezvous with HeyUGuys to discuss his foray into horror with Judas Ghost. Probably most recognised for his role on TV’s Spartacus: War of the Damned in which he played the villainous Crassus with brutal pomp, Merrells is a regular face on both the big and the small screen.

During the course of our brief conversation he shared with us how he discovered his love of performance, and storytelling, as well as his early memories of horror’s most famous monsters and authors. Whilst reflecting on filmmaking as a musical journey, along with the fortunes of the modern short film he invited us inside the village hall to discuss his one location supernatural horror.

Why a career in acting? Was there that one inspirational moment?
