Fear, Inc. Scores a Composer

Published

Dustin Morgan

Sound and music are key components when making an effective horror project, and Fear, Inc. has scored itself a key composer to bring the spooky!

From the Press Release:
Dustin Morgan, frontman of LA-based orchestral rock band ARCHER BLACK, has been tapped to score the highly anticipated black comedy thriller FEAR, INC.

FEAR, INC. is directed by Vincent Masciale and written by Luke Barnett. The duo are best known for their work with the website “Funny or Die.” The film stars Lucas Neff (“Raising Hope,” AMC’s upcoming “Preacher”), Caitlin Stasey (ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE, “Reign”), Chris Marquette (THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, JUST FRIENDS), Stephanie Drake (“Mad Men”), and Mark Moses (“Mad Men,” “Homeland”). The supporting cast is rounded out with Eric Lange (“Narcos”), Richard Riehle (OFFICE SPACE), Naomi Grossman (“American Horror Story”), Ashlynn Yennie (THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE I&II), David Ury (“Breaking Bad”), Patrick Renna (THE SANDLOT), and Emmy Award winner Leslie Jordan (“American Horror Story”).

FEAR, INC. follows a company of degenerates who can be hired for a premium to bring your greatest fears to life. But when horror junkie Joe Foster’s customized scare seemingly begins, he and his friends must decide if this company is there to scare them or make them pawns in their own sick game.

“Archer Black is such a interesting combination of original style and traditional orchestration; we’re excited to have Dustin on board to create an unconventional and raw score for the film,” said Masciale.

Archer Black is cutting-edge orchestral indie rock. The Los Angeles-based outfit often appears on stage with a dozen or more musicians, balancing intricate orchestrations with brazen, emotional performances. All the while, this juggernaut is held together by the charisma of vocalist/composer Dustin Morgan. Their debut album, Forgiveness Is a Weapon, released to critical acclaim in 2012, and their follow up album, Let It Burn, was released in 2014. FEAR, INC. marks Morgan’s first foray into scoring for picture.

Agony Had To Be Censored To Avoid An Adults Only Rating; PC Version Can Be Played Uncut

Published

on

Agony looks like one of the most explicit games we’ve ever seen, so it comes as no surprise that it had to be slightly censored in order to avoid an Adults Only rating from the ESRB. Now, before you go bitching about how much you hate censorship, keep in mind that the changes made to the game were minimal, with the camera having to be slightly obscured during some of the most extreme sequences so that it could secure an M-rating.

As AO-rated games are never released on consoles, the version of Agony coming to PS4 and Xbox One will be the slightly altered M-rated edition, whilst the PC version will come with an optional patch to remove the censorship and to experience a fully uncut version of the game.

As anyone familiar with the history of the ESRB will know, this isn’t the first time that a non-pornographic game ventured into Adults Only territory. The Punisher and Manhunt 2 both had to be censored in order to avoid an AO rating, whilst Hatred was released uncut on Steam with the rating intact.

Agony, which takes place in Hell, was developed by Madmind Studio, and will be published by PlayWay later this year.
