Joker-boxWhen you think of spooky places this time of year, perhaps images of Haddonfield, Camp Crystal Lake, and The Further dance in your head. But this Halloween, DC is taking readers on a new tour of terror with a batch of horror-themed comics. Tiptoe through a creepy campus, lose your mind in the insane asylum, grab a seat at the Joker’s dinner table, and crawl through haunted mines where bats hungrily eye your neck. 

Explore the creepy campus…

Gotham-Academy-main

GOTHAM ACADEMY #1:

“WELCOME TO GOTHAM ACADEMY! Gotham City’s most prestigious prep school is a very weird place. It’s got a spooky campus, oddball teachers, and rich benefactors always dropping by…like that weirdo Bruce Wayne. But nothing is as strange is the students!

Like, what’s up with Olive Silverlock? Is she crazy or what? Where did she go last summer? And what’s the deal with her creepy mom? And how come that Freshman MAPS is always following her around? And is she still going out with Kyle? P.S. Did you hear the rumor about the ghost in the North Hall?!

GOTHAM ACADEMY is a new, monthly teen drama set in the shadow of Batman and the craziness of Gotham City, with new characters and old plus a secret tie to Gotham’s past…”

GOTHAM ACADEMY #2:

“Olive joins the creepy Order of the Bat as an afterschool activity, and we learn more about her secret past!”

Check yourself into the insane asylum…

Arkham-Manor-main

ARKHAM MANOR #1:

“When catastrophe strikes Arkham Asylum, where will Gotham City house the world’s most dangerous criminals, and when inmates are found murdered, what is Batman prepared to do in search of justice? Arkham’s madness comes home in ARKHAM MANOR! A bold new series brought to you by the mad minds of Gerry Duggan (Deadpool, Nova) and Shawn Crystal (Deadpool, Wolverine and the X-Men).”

ARKHAM MANOR #2:

“When Batman goes undercover in Arkham Manor, we learn just how important inmate Jack Shaw is to his mission.”

Grab a seat at the Joker’s dinner table…

Death-Main

BATMAN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY BOOK AND JOKER MASK SET:

“Every legendary hero has an opposite number. The other side of the coin. The darkness to their light. These reflections of evil, death and menace bring out the best in our champions – if they can survive the experience.

But none compare to The Joker – the deadliest, most frightening villain ever to grace the comic book page and the bloodthirsty, grinning psychopath who, in his horrifying return to Gotham City, sported a new, disturbing visage: his own face!

BATMAN VOL. 3: DEATH OF THE FAMILY, the complex, dangerous and disturbing masterpiece written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV with art by Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion and Jock, was first issued in hardcover featuring an acetate dust jacket showcasing the face of The Joker as it appeared on the die-cut covers of the “Death of the Family” comic books — and under that dust jacket lay the horror of The Joker’s skinless face!

Now, this seminal Batman trade paperback graphic novel is paired with a replica hand-painted vinyl latex mask of The Joker that features sewn-on hair and a white elastic band. It’s a must-have for any fan of Snyder and Capullo’s groundbreaking work!”

Enter the haunted mines…

American-Vampire-Main

AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SECOND CYCLE #5:

“The California Gold Rush. Thousands migrate West, and any average Joe could strike it rich with just one swing of his pick. But one unfortunate miner’s attempts to unearth a fragment of gold inadvertently awaken something much worse. Clues to the mystery of the monstrous new villain, the Gray Trader, are revealed in this adventurous one-shot story featuring the stunning artwork of rising star artist Matias Bergara!”

Fede-Alvarez-boxViewers went back to the possessed woods in Fede Alvarez’s 2013 Evil Dead reboot that showcased a group of young adults tormented by the wicked Naturon Demonto. While many fans have been waiting for Alvarez and co-writer Rodo Sayagues to bring an Evil Dead sequel to the big screen, it’s now been revealed that their next project will deal with a different kind of horror.

A thriller written by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues, A Man in the Dark will be the next directorial effort for Alvarez. Like the Evil Dead reboot, A Man in the Dark comes from Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert’s Ghost House Pictures. Further details on the film, including its synopsis, can be found in the official press release (via Collider):

“LOS ANGELES, CA (October 30, 2014) – Ghost House Pictures announced today that Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert will re-team with Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues on the writing duo’s thriller A MAN IN THE DARK. Alvarez previously directed and co-wrote the screenplay with Sayagues on EVIL DEAD, the hit retelling of Raimi’s classic which grossed nearly $100 million in worldwide box office.

Alvarez is set to direct A MAN IN THE DARK, and Raimi and Tapert will produce for Ghost House. J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake will executive produce. Erin Westerman will oversee for the company. Good Universe will be launching international sales at the upcoming American Film Market. WME Global will be handling the North American sale.

In A MAN IN THE DARK, three teens who get away with perfectly planned home robberies have set their sights on one last payout that will get them out of crime forever. Their target: a reclusive blind man with millions of dollars in hiding. But as soon as they break into his home, the tables are turned and they find themselves trapped and fighting for survival against a psychopath with secrets of his own.

Alvarez is represented by WME, Anonymous Content and Karl Austen of Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein. Sayagues is represented by WME and Anonymous Content. Dan Freedman negotiated their deals on behalf of Ghost House Pictures.”

Universal-Monsters-short-film-boxThey’ve been known to suck blood, howl at the moon, and lurk beneath the water’s murky surface, but though the Universal Monsters can each be intimidating in their own way, they all show a friendlier side on Halloween night when little ghouls and goblins come to them in search of candy. Diamond Select Toys features their Universal Monster action figures in the animated short film, Trick or Treat.

From Diamond Select Toys: “Every year, the spirit of Halloween takes over the world for 31 glorious days, and Diamond Select Toys unleashes a new batch of Monsters! Based on Universal Studios’ iconic horror films of the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s, DST’s 7-inch scale Universal Monsters action figures have become an annual tradition, and now they’re starring in their first-ever stop-motion animated short film!

Starring some of the toy line’s most famous characters, “Trick or Treat” was animated by Alex Kropinak, the animator behind Marvel.com’s “What The…?!” Using a combination of stop-motion photography and computer graphics, Kropinak brought to life the actual action figures, sculpted by Gabriel Marquez, Rudy Garcia and Jean St. Jean. The film’s cast includes the Mummy, the Wolfman, Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula and the Metaluna Mutant.

Kropinak even included a cameo appearance by Diamond Select’s first-ever original concept action figure, Van Helsing. Designed by DST President Chuck Terceira and sculptor Jean St. Jean, the famous monster hunter received his own 7-inch scale figure this year, which was released at the same time as the newest Universal Monsters assortment. The film was co-written by Kropinak and DST Marketing Supervisor Zach Oat, who previously collaborated on ToyFare magazine’s Twisted ToyFare Theatre.

The newest series of Universal Monsters (and Van Helsing) are available, or available to order, from your local comic shop. Find your nearest comic shop at http//bit.ly/findcomicshop!”

Ex-MachinaA24 announced that they have acquired US rights to Ex Machina, the directorial debut of writer Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Dredd), and we have a look at the very first trailer.

“New York, NY, OCTOBER 29, 2014 – A24 has acquired U.S. rights to Alex Garland’s directorial debut EX MACHINA. Garland also wrote the film, which stars a trio of rising stars—Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander. The film was produced by DNA’s Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush executive produced the film along with former Film4 head Tessa Ross. A24 will release the film April 10, 2015. Universal International Pictures is distributing the film internationally.

“Alex Garland is already one of the most brilliant and distinctive writers working today,” says A24. “Ex Machina marks the beginning of an exciting new step for Alex the director, and we are thrilled to help bring his provocative vision to US audiences.”

Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, EX MACHINA. Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test—charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated, seductive––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined.”
