He sought solace in death, but Hell had other plans for Lucas Stand, a military veteran who is forced to hunt demons through time in a new comic book series co-written by Caitlin Kittredge (Coffin Hill, Black London) and Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy). With the first issue of Lucas Stand now out from BOOM Studios! (and the second issue being released on July 20th), we caught up with Kittredge to discuss collaborating with Sutter, depicting the series' wide range of time periods, and much more.
Yesterday, Daily Dead headed out to Universal Studios Hollywood for their launch event in honor of the park’s newest attraction that celebrates AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead. For years, walkers and their human counterparts from the show have been a huge part of Universal’s Horror Nights in the fall, but now John Murdy and special effects legend Greg Nicotero are bringing the thrills and chills of The Walking Dead world to the park all year round, which is really cool (especially after losing the House of Horrors in 2015) and is no doubt something fans of the show should experience for themselves.
Right now, the United States is at a major crossroads, and as a citizen, I don’t think I’ve ever been more worried about what the future holds for us than I have been over the last nine months. Regardless of whatever your political or social beliefs are, there’s no denying that collectively our nation is on the crux of something huge, which is why The Purge: Election Year might truly be the most important horror movie to be released this year.
Hitting the big screen in New York City and VOD platforms on July 1st before making its Los Angeles theatrical debut on July 8th from IFC Midnight, Mickey Keating’s Carnage Park marks his fourth feature film collaboration with acclaimed composer Giona Ostinelli. For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Ostinelli to discuss working with Keating, using a wide range of instruments and items (including a nail gun) to create unease in Carnage Park, and much more.
You gotta hand it to director Jaume Collet-Serra. In just a little over eleven years behind the camera, he’s been responsible for three really strong modern horror classics—2005’s House of Wax (I’ll humbly defend this one to the bitter end, folks), Orphan, and now The Shallows, which has Blake Lively facing off against a deadly oceanic predator for 87 minutes. Taut, thrilling, and viciously fun, The Shallows is a great summer thriller that perfectly demonstrates the truth of that old adage: sometimes less truly is more.
Following the heartbreaking conclusion of Penny Dreadful, fans of the Showtime series are still reflecting on, celebrating, and in some cases, mourning the show's incredible cast of characters. Recently Reeve Carney, who plays Dorian Gray, discussed his thoughts on Season 3 and the series as a whole during an episode screening and Q&A event for Penny Dreadful at the Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn, NY. We have highlights from the Q&A, including how Carney got into the immortal mindset of Dorian, his audition process for the role, and much more.
If you’re looking for a great killer snake movie, you may find 1982’s Venom to be a disappointment. If you’re looking for a showcase of competitive overacting, Venom is your huckleberry.
There’s no denying that Nicolas Winding Refn is easily one of the most fascinating filmmakers working today. A polarizing cinematic voice who often focuses on style over substance, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Refn’s latest movie, The Neon Demon, is yet another stunning escapade through a neon-soaked landscape that’s as hauntingly beautiful to watch as the film’s ethereal protagonist played by Elle Fanning.
While there are a lot of things that Refn does nail in regards to the experience of moving to Los Angeles in hopes of following your dreams, the reality is that the filmmaker doesn’t really say anything new about that journey with The Neon Demon, making for an unfortunately shallow experience that left me somewhat unsatisfied by the time the film’s conclusion rolled around.
A talented cellist wants to celebrate her new gig solitarily, but she and her cat discover they are not home alone in Travis Zariwny's Intruder. With IFC Midnight releasing Intruder in New York and LA theaters and on VOD this Friday, we caught up with lead actress Louise Linton for our latest Q&A feature to discuss collaborating with Zariwny and Moby, the comic relief of her co-star cat named "Dirty", encountering poison ivy on set, and much more.
Last week, the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo had plenty of new titles in the horror genre to check out on the show floor, and while in attendance, Daily Dead had the chance to get our hands on a few games that we’ll be sure to play with the lights off when they come out later this year.
