Hercules vs. The Mud Monsters

Published

on

In the upcoming Sci-Fi Channel original Something Beneath, a mud monster rises from the depths of a Shining-type hotel, terrorizing the guests with their own paranoia and revisiting the past and future in nightmarish apparitions. Father Douglas Middleton, an Episcopalian priest, is summoned to put an end to the evil mud monster’s reign of terror. And who will be playing this man of God called in to battle evil’s muddy incarnate?

Kevin Sorbo.

Kevin Sorbo is not the sort of guy I would envision in the role of a priest, not even one destined to battle a demonic entity composed of sewer muck. The casting of the former TV “Hercules” and big screen Kull the Conqueror may also have to do with Something Beneath being directed by David Winning, who directed Sorbo after having worked together on Gene Roddenberry’s “Andromeda”.

Since Something Beneath only just filmed this past November, I wouldn’t expect to see it premiere on the Sci-Fi Channel until much later this year. The film was a co-production between Sci-Fi and RHI Films, just one of a slew of films being produced by the two as part of a recent production deal. In addition to Father Hercules vs. the Mud Monster, the collaboration will also be giving us James Van Der Beek vs. a giant squid in Eye of the Beast as well as other creature features with titles like Maneater and Hybrid starring the likes of Gary Busey and Justine Bateman.

Exclusive: Uncrossing Rock Out in Get It From Me

Published

on

Alright rockers, we’ve got something just for you here! Today, we’re happy to premiere “Get It From Me” from new rock group Uncrossing, which features ex-Activator guitarist Jared Drace! The track comes from the band’s upcoming self-titled EP and it’s a moderately paced, sludgy, doomy track that features strong female vocals. If you’re in the mood for something to get you through the rest of today until the weekend hits, head on down and hit ‘Play’!

Drace tells Dread Central, “Musically, this was a fun one to come up with just because it’s a total mish-mashing of influences, well of MY influences at least. I mean there’s a solid Type O Negative-style chug for the verse and an outro riff that has a kind of Tool-vibe to it, and that’s not even mentioning the melodic beer commercial-like solo in the middle which is definitely a side-effect of listening to too much In Flames & Arch Enemy in my youth! But assembled together and with everyone putting their own stamp on it, we get something that ends up sounding like an Uncrossing song.

Uncrossing’s self-titled 3-track EP will be available for streaming and free download on February 9. You can follow the band on Facebook or Instagram.

If you want to check out the band, you can see them on February 10 at Lucky 13 in Brooklyn, NY.

Exclusive: Venture Into Black Mirror’s Black Museum With Cristobal Tapia de Veer’s “We Got a Miracle”

Published

on

One of the most anticipated shows to premiere last year (really late last year) was Netflix’s fourth season of Charlie Brooker’s “Black Mirror”. The show has amassed a dedicated following who voraciously devour each new morsel whenever the opportunity presents itself. For those who are eager for a new and different taste, we’ve got something rather special for you today!

Below is an exclusive stream of “We Got a Miracle”, a composition by Cristobal Tapia de Veer (The Girl With All the Gifts) for the “Black Museum” episode. Dark, brooding, and hypnotic, the muted opening enters a tribalistic rhythm with a muted piano piercing the pulsations with staccato stabs. Ghostly vocals hover later on, specters that appear briefly before fading quickly into the darkness. The track builds upon the tribal drums and enters the realm of dissonance without becoming offensive to the ears, culminating in a moment of near ritualistic worship.

The beginning, discovering the Black Museum, that was going to set the tone for the rest of the show,” explained Tapia de Veer. “The music morphed in many ways throughout the 3 stories, then goes back to where it started with the Black Museum, although with a sense of accomplishment, but also a sense of doom.

Black Museum is available as a digital download through Lakeshore Records’ Bandcamp.
