Stephen King’s It Pisses Off Canadians!

Published

on

Oh, Pennywise! You’re such a monster. However, if you ask some Toronto residents, it’s the movie production staff who are the real monsters. According to The Star, excessive film shoots at a Riverdale home are really pissing off some neighbors.

These [films] have been affecting the lives of the families in the neighborhood,” says local resident Nick Shcherban. “It looks like Universal Studios out there!

Shcherban says the film crews make excessive noise, and he has complained to local Councillor Paula Fletcher and the Toronto Film Office about what he believes are infringements of city bylaws. His concerns include disruptive noise, bright lights on set, crew members trespassing, and illegal parking.

One of Fletcher’s staff said she was out of the city and not available for comment. The city’s film commissioner Zaib Shaikh responded to queries by email.

Staff from the City’s Toronto Film, Television and Digital Media Office have met with one resident regarding their concerns and have advised them that we have been working with the production company to ensure that all public filming regulations are abided by,” wrote Shaikh, also the city’s director of entertainment industries, in an email. “We will continue to work with all concerned to ensure that this film production causes the minimum of disruption.

Careful, Nick, if you look into the Deadlights, you’ll really be driven insane!

Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis star with Bill Skarsgard, who portrays Pennywise. In addition, creature performer Javier Botet has signed on as The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, part of a group of bullies who torment The Losers’ Club.

Andy Muschietti directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman and Chase Palmer. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, and Barbara Muschietti produce. The story will be spread across two films.

Synopsis:
In a small town in Maine, seven children known as The Losers’ Club come face to face with life problems, bullies, and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.

Heads Fly In Footage From Viking Fantasy RPG Rune

Published

on

IGN have released an extended gameplay video for the upcoming Nordic fantasy RPG Rune, and it’s filled with enough decapitations to make even the government of Saudi Arabia blush.

In addition to the severed heads, the footage also gives us a look at various different areas within the game’s large world, including snow covered mountain tops and rivers which will need to be traversed by boat, and although most of the enemies featured are human, we also see that we’ll be going up against wolves and trolls. According to Hardcore Gamer, the player will be able to pick up the severed arms of their foes to use as weapons, and will also need to eat lizards to regain health, so it looks like nothing will be safe within the world of Rune.

Keep in mind that this is alpha footage, hence why it looks a little rough around the edges (especially when a tree appears to pop out of the ground at 2:33), but overall, it’s a good indication of what we can expect from the final product.

Developed by the appropriately named Human Head Studios, Rune (official website) will be a sequel to their 2000 RPG of the same name, and will be heading to PC, and possibly consoles, later this year.

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls Announced for iOS

Published

on

There’s a new Castlevania game coming our way, and whilst you might be a little disappointing that it’s not a fully fledged console release, you’ll be glad to know that it’s not a Pachinko either. It’s actually an iOS game by the name Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, and it takes the series back to its classic 2D roots.

Dracula, who has been a staple of Castlevania since day one, probably won’t be showing up in Grimoire of Souls, as the game takes place many years after his true and final death. Things aren’t all sunshine and rainbows following the demise of the Lord of Darkness, however, as you’ll have to hunt down a cursed Grimoire with the power to bring Dracula back into the world. Throughout the story mode, you’ll pay as a character named Genya Arikado, a newcomer to the series, as you team up with Lucy, a member of a mysterious research organization, to prevent Dracula’s resurrection.

Grimoire of Souls will also have a co-op mode which can be played by up to four players, in addition to a four-versus-four competitive mode. For these modes, players will be able to choose from a selection of popular Castlevania characters, including Simon Belmont, Maria Renard, Charlotte Aulin, and Dracula’s son, Alucard.

There’s currently no word on when Konami will publish Castlevania: Grimoire of Shadow on the iOS, although you can sign up for the Japanese closed beta right now.

Channel 4’s New Series True Horror Opens With A Warning For Nervous Viewers

Published

on

If you live in the UK, now has never been a better time to renew your TV license. That’s because Channel 4 are broadcasting a new dramatized documentary series called “True Horror”, which will take you into the heart of four terrifying true horror stories.

In pure Channel 4 style, each episode will open with a disclaimer reading “scenes of paranormal activity may disturb viewers”, before heading straight into a mix of both real life interviews and scripted segments. The first season of “True Horror” will consist of four episodes, with a special called “The Witches’ Prison” also being broadcast on Halloween. Today’s episode will be called “Hellfire Farm”, and will recount the tale of a couple who moved into a supposedly haunted farm in the Welsh countryside. This installment was directed by BAFTA nominee Tom Kingsley, and will be shown at 10pm.

“True Horror” was produced by “The Enfield Haunting’s” Jamie Campbell and Joel Wilson, and stars James Dryden, Charlotte Eaton, Sammy Williams, Katie Jarvis, Adam Leese, Amy Morgan, and James Tarpey. And you really should watch the series, because it needs the ratings. If not, we’re just gonna get more of the soap opera and singing competition garbage that usually dominates British TV.
