The Rampage Trailer Is a Bit More Serious Than I Was Expecting

Video game adaptations are no stranger to Hollywood. From movies like Super Mario Bros. to Street Fighter to the Resident Evil franchise, Hollywood has long had its eye on popular video game titles, seeing them as fodder for big screen adaptations. Some of these make total sense, like Silent Hill or Assassin’s Creed. Regardless of […]

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in November 2017

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in November 2017
It’s a good thing that Netflix already has the “Gilmore Girls” for all of those sweet Thanksgiving vibes, because the streaming giant is coming down from that Halloween sugar high in a bad way and following last month’s blockbuster slate with a relatively unremarkable roster of new additions. Proving that there isn’t much rhyme or reason behind when they’re able to upload new movies (it’s hard to curate around contract rights), the platform’s latest batch of titles is heavy on horror movies and light on seasonal fare.

Still, it’s not all bad news for those of you who might be looking for something to stream while you’re home for the holidays. Comfort watches like “Casper” and “Field of Dreams” are perfect things to put on when you’re immobilized by a stomach full of turkey, and you can even go for an

‘Doki Doki Literature Club’ Game Review: “So Cute It’s Incredibly Frightening!”

The spirit of Halloween is alive this month in the video gaming industry. Not from a long-running franchise. Not from a gore-y, Silent Hill-esque nightmare. Rather, you can experience true horror from a Japanese dating simulator: Doki Doki Literary Club. Let me set this straight: This Is A Horror Game. Everybody except Kotaku has covered […]

Amityville: The Awakening Debuts To Minuscule Box Office Numbers

For some horrors fans, the past few years have proven to be a long, strange journey – especially if you have a vested interest in a certain Long Island haunted house. Basically, Amityville: The Awakening was hit with delay after delay after delay, something we don’t see often outside of the video game medium. Believe it or not, it was originally supposed to be released in January of 2015, but was only recently made available for mass consumption.

Now, the simple numbers state that the latest entry in the enduring franchise opened with a paltry $742 – which is true – but you have to take into account that it was shown on only ten screens nationwide for one day. Not only that, but the film has already been available for free on Google Play since October 12, so that may have had something to do with it. Well, that and a complete lack of promotion.

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017
November may mean the end of Halloween, but that doesn’t mean that the creepy fun has to end as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon continue to add some freaky films to November’s list of streaming content.

Netflix will start the month off with films like “Oculus” and “Silent Hill” for fans of big scares and “Casper” and “Scary Movie” for those who looking for a milder way to keep the Halloween spirit alive, and will also add in “9” and “Piranha” later in the month. For those who would rather leave the October spookiness behind, science fiction comedies like “Chappie” and “Men in Black” or family-friendly films like “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Boss Baby” should make for fun movie nights.

Hulu will also keep the frights coming with offerings like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and “Beowulf,” but will also get a headstart on the winter holiday season with “Christmas with the Cranks,” Happy Christmas,” and collection

Editing files will get you banned in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds

Devs have never been happy with players tinkering with game files, especially those Mmo/Pvp-oriented games. The top honchos of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (Pubg) have that particular sentiment. In fact, they’re showing disapproval by blasting these tinkerers off the servers. Yes, you can now get banned for editing Pubg files.

Beyond Pubg Items: Fog of the Edit War

Although editing files of Mmo/Pvp-oriented games have been a punishable offense by default, it’s something Pubg devs didn’t implement upon the game’s release. In fact, this prohibition only came because of an update that, aside from adding new Pubg Items, added foggy weather to the game, giving the game a Silent Hill feel to it whenever it’s active.

It’s All Fogged Up

It’s also made a bit of a change in the metagame, as it forces players to rely on close-quarters combat instead of long-range sniping,

October Horrors 2017 Day 24 – Jacob’s Ladder (1990)

Jacob’s Ladder, 1990.

Directed by Adrian Lyne.

Starring Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Pena, Danny Aiello, and Matt Craven.

Synopsis:

Jacob Singer is a seemingly normal man living a seemingly normal life when he is suddenly confronted with a series of strange events and even stranger visions. With his life becoming ever more chaotic and his visions ever more nightmarish, Jacob attempts to uncover the truth behind a traumatic event that he was involved with during his time as a soldier in Vietnam.

Psychological horror is perhaps among the most complex and fascinating of horror sub-genres. With it often delving into the intricacies of the mind, madness, life, death and beyond, psychological horror has the rare opportunity to tell much deeper stories than any common garden gore splattered slasher flick.

In my view one of the finest that this sub-genre has to offer comes in the form of Adrian Lyne’s dark

‘Mudbound’ Finally Hits Netflix Next Month, Plus Music and Film Documentaries

‘Mudbound’ Finally Hits Netflix Next Month, Plus Music and Film Documentaries
Fall is upon us, and with it a fresh new crop of Netflix movies to curl up with when the weather starts to turn. Next month’s most exciting addition to the streaming service is “Mudbound,” the Southern World Ward II epic from up-and-comer-turned-force-to-be-reckoned-with Dee Rees. Netflix sealed the biggest deal of this year’s Sundance Film Festival when it paid a whopping $12.5 million for “Mudbound,” setting a high bar for the drama. Balancing out the heavier fare are classic comedies like “Men In Black” and “Scary Movie,” as well as “Field of Dreams” and “42” for the baseball lovers.

The fresh crop also includes a bevy of critically acclaimed documentaries, such as “Eventual Salvation,” “Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary,” and “Cuba and the Cameraman.” Jim Carrey’s creative process gets a deep dive in “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond,” which includes never-before-seen behind the scenes footage from Milos Forman

The Evil Within 2 Review

I arrived at Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within about two years after its release, having grown tired of survival horror and the staleness of the genre as a whole. However, when I finally settled in for a playthrough, I couldn’t let it go. Roughly fifteen hours later, I’d guided embattled hero Detective Sebastian Castellanos through a series of terrifying encounters and remarkably freaky scenarios inside one of the most hellish mental hospitals in video game history. It was a grueling experience, complete with sweaty hands and muffled screams, but it reminded me of why, exactly, I’d spent so much time with Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and their ilk over the years.

Naturally, I had high expectations for The Evil Within 2, especially considering the team responsible for the first outing — writer and Troma vet Trent Haaga, in particular — was returning for yet another horrifying go-around. Thankfully, the

5 Horror Game Franchises We Want Back

  • Cinelinx
October is upon us which means it’s time for spooks and scares, and video games are the perfect way to get that experience. Take a look at some games we hope make a return in the gaming world to, you know, make our editors wet their pants.

When we say return we are not talking about reboots, but rather a return to form. Some of these listed below have seen recent sequels, but they've strayed pretty far from the series' roots (or only launched on mobile platforms). Whether it's another sequel or spin-off, it'd be great to see these games return in the ways we remember them.

Fear

This is the game that provided the impetus for this article. Fear was a game that really sparked WB Games into making quality titles and becoming a major developer. This was their big game before Batman and we loved it. The

Sofia Falcone Debuts In First Trailer For Next Week’s Episode Of Gotham

Despite any concerns we may have had going in to season 4, Gotham has handily put them to bed in short order. Just last night, we were witness to what was possibly the most comic book accurate Scarecrow in live action to date, as Jim Gordon was forced to brave the halls of Arkham Asylum while under the influence of fear toxin. Truth be told, it made me recall Silent Hill‘s Brookhaven Hospital at times, but it’s more likely the producers were influenced by the Arkham video games.

After having to endure such a trippy encounter and dealing with Penguin trying to unionize crime, it seems like Gordon yearns to restore the order of yesteryear by having the Falcone family reclaim their throne. As such, he’ll be reaching out to Carmine and, in the process, will meet his daughter, Sofia. And if this plan doesn’t work, we
