Gamebox(click to see it bigger!)It can be argued that Lionsgate has become the new master of horror DVDs. Each week at least 8 to 10 show up on the radar, and more often than not, they are enjoyable. So what are some of the films to look forward to this month? How about we start with something both gamers and horror fans can flock to: Gamebox 1.0.

The official word is that “Charlie Nash is an expert video game tester whose life has become unbearable after the tragic shooting of his girlfriend Kate. Finding no comfort in his friends or job, Charlie loses himself in video games. After receiving a mysterious test game in the mail, he immerses himself in its amazingly realistic, 3-D fantasy universe. However, Charlie soon learns this virtual world is very real, as he’s plunged into a perilous, life-and-death battle against the game from which there is little chance of escape – or survival. In this pulse-pounding, effects-packed sci-fi thriller, the only way out is to win.

Interested? Get your fragging face on and order Gamebox 1.0 through EvilShop. Don’t be a noob and join the uber-pwnage.

  • Making of Gamebox 1.0 featurette
  • Audio commentary with directors David Hillenbrand and Scott Hillenbrand, co-executive producer John Coven, and editor Dave O’Brien
  • Bloopers/gag reel
  • Deleted/extended scenes with optional commentary
  • Chicago Massacre: Richard Speck (click to see it bigger!)Wait! There’s more. Lionsgate has also just released a film where Tony Todd teams up with Andrew Divoff, Debbie Rochon and Stargate SG-1‘s Corin Nemec to bring you Michael Feifer’s Chicago Massacre: Richard Speck. What are these horror icons doing in Chicago?

    Let’s take a look back 41 years ago: “On July 14th, 1966, Richard Speck broke into a South Chicago townhouse and took nine student nurses hostage. There he methodically beat, raped, and stabbed the young women to death in one of the bloodiest mass murders in American history. Brought to life by a celebrated horror cast, this terrifying story is a must-see for every fan of true-crime.

    Sadly, though, this DVD doesn’t come quite as full of extras, but some things are better than nothing:

  • Audio commentary with director Michael Feifer and actor Corin Nemec
  • Stills gallery
  • Show Tony Todd and Andrew Divoff some love and buy Chicago Massacre: Richard Speck through EvilShop as well!

    Michael C. Hall Buried in Stephen King’s Pet Sematary



    Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

    Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

    We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

    The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

    Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam



    Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

    The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

    IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.
