Horror News: The Weekly Offering


Posted by:

Welcome, mortals, to The Weekly Offering. Here, we present our dark gifts in hopes that we please the Ancient Ones, that they might spare us. They are satisfied with our humble sacrifices of news, images, reviews, and commentary through the week, but on Fridays, they desire more. Their weekends, their unholy Sabbath, know no bounds. And so, to satisfy their bloodlust, as well as yours, we bring you these short, savory offerings.

 

Amy Adams May Be Heading for Some Dark Places

What is it about the redheads?

The ever-adorable and very talented Amy Adams is in talks to cross the threshold of horror, and star in the film adaptation of the acclaimed novel Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. The film adaptation was written by Gilles Paquet-Brenner, who is also directing. If confirmed, Adams will star as a woman named Libby Day, who witnessed the murder of her entire family when she was a child; days later testifying that her brother was the killer.

A quarter of a century later, a mysterious organization known as the Kill Club, who attempt to solve the worst of crimes, confronts her and forces her to face the truth.

In the eyes of the Ancient Ones, Adams is always a joy to behold, and to see her take on a darker role will hopefully be the start of something bloody beautiful.

Horror News: ‘Hoax Hunters #1′ Coming Soon


Posted by:

Monsters are real.

This we know, but even the most avid horror fanatics grow weary of the overeager and ultimately unscientific methods by which those graced with television presence attempt to prove the existence of said monsters. So, how could anyone possibly make this done to death idea any good? Simple. Turn everything backwards.

Hoax Hunters, written by Michael Moreci and Steve Seeley with art by JM Ringuet, made its Issue #0 debut months ago, but thanks to the Kickstarter project named “ReincarNATE”, Hoax Hunters will now be its own series. Moreci and Seeley will be returning as writers, but Axel Medellin will be taking over the art.

So what is this new comic about? Imagine if undiscovered species such as monsters did in fact exist. In this world where there are more believers than skeptics, how would the media react? In our world, we have reality and documentary shows trying to boost network ratings by attempting to prove the existence of such creatures. So if these such “cryptids” really did exist, then the natural reaction of these shows would be to disprove their existence!

Horror News: Neil Marshall May Captain ‘The Demeter’


Posted by:

Dark, disturbing, claustrophobic, and suffocating, like a dead, decomposing albatross draped upon the shoulders of the subconscious.

Neil Marshall’s The Descent was more than just another film about creatures that go bump in the dark. The primal, brutal, disgusting nature of the creatures forced the civilized protagonists to bury their modern sensibilities in order to survive. The film was less about the descent into an uncharted cave filled with flesh-devouring monsters, and more about the descent into madness. And then Marshall goes on to ask us the question to which we do not want to know the answer. Is it ever possible to go back?

Fatale Trade Coming Next Month from Image Comics

Guns, cults, murder, monsters, and one dangerous dame.

Horror meets noir in Fatale, the new comic series from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. With issue #5 released this week, the first story arc comes to a conclusion, and Image Comics is planning to release the first trade collection in June.

The story follows a beautiful and mysterious woman named Josephine as she is in turn followed by an unknown and brutally violent evil. Along the way, many men are drawn to her, and one by one they begin to meet their own grisly, psychologically tormenting fates.

Look for the trade, Death Chases Me, on June 27, along with issue #6 and a brand new story arc. If you haven’t picked up this bloodstone gem of a horror comic, now would be a good time to do so. The Ancient Ones do not look kindly on those who neglect such things.

Horror News: Lovecraftian Monsters in the Style of Gorey


Posted by:

Saying that I enjoy art is like saying that a zombie occasionally indulges in cerebral gray matter.

Saying that I am fond of Lovecraft mythology would be like implying that Nosferatu was partial to AB positive.

So when I saw this collection of Lovecraftian monsters drawn in the style of Edward Gorey, the part of my brain that gets excited over new art and the part that was driven insane by unnameable evil long ago began to collide like the bow of a ship to the head of an ancient evil god.

These Post-It Monstres were created by John Kenn Mortensen, and you can check out his gallery right here.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Each of these seems to be composed of 521 screams, 387 cold chills, 63 cases of clinical insanity, 28 devoured souls, and 1 terrifying story.

Horror News: Conflict Looms Over ‘Evil Dead’


Posted by:

Like a chainsaw arm to a zombie skull, the ugly demon of civil lawsuits has once again cut its way into the news. And this time, I’m fairly certain I know whose side we’re all on.

A legal battle has erupted over the rights to a fourth Evil Dead film. When Sam Raimi and Renaissance Pictures registered the mark for a fourth installment of the cult classic series, they found a nasty surprise in the dark, dank basement of the U.S. Trademark Office. Awards Pictures is claiming that they have also been planning a new Evil Dead, and that they maintain the rights to make the film.

Horror News: New Pic From ‘Chernobyl Diaries’

You have haunted houses. You have ghost towns. But how about an entire city crawling with the shadows of the dead and the damned? Enter Pripyat, Ukraine.

A new still has been released from the upcoming film Chernobyl Diaries, from Alcon and FilmNation. Keeping us in the dark, literally and figuratively, the picture offers us very little, except the lingering knowledge that when the sun goes down, the residents who never left Pripyat come out. It seems radiation sickness is the least of your worries when visiting the wastelands of Chernobyl.

Horror News: Will Seth Rogen Survive the Apocalypse?


Posted by:

People may say that horror movies don’t feel real.

“These are just actors. This is just a movie. It’s not really happening.” Is it?

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are teaming up again to bring us the End of the World. Inspired by a short film entitled Jay and Seth vs the Apocalypse, the film also includes James Franco, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, and Craig Robinson. Also in talks to appear are Jason Segel, David Krumholtz, and Emma Watson.

A stellar cast to be sure, but what’s the catch? They will all be playing themselves. That’s right. We get to see how some of our favorite comedic actors cope with the apocalypse while trapped inside James Franco’s apartment.
