Friday the 13th: The Game – How to Easily Find a Match on Xbox One

Published

on

Yesterday the long anticipated Friday the 13th: The Game launched on consoles, and don’t you know Jason’s first victim was the game’s servers. They were… quite literally… bombarded, nuked, and kaput.

I, like many of you, spent quite a while hitting “Quick Play” over and over again to no avail… but then… a solution became apparent.

While I don’t know what the case is for PS4, I can tell you that on Xbox One all you have to do to get a game is go to the Friday the 13th game hub, tab over to “Looking for Groups,” and BAM! There’s over 100 sessions just waiting for you to join!

Even easier? Just become a member of the “Dread Central Horror Community” on Xbox One under Groups for folks looking for a match ASAP! See you online!

Believe me… once in, the game is NOTHING SHORT OF AWESOME, and this temporary work-around until the servers are all patched up and ready to go really works!

Following the story of a woman who goes through a near-death car accident only to find herself paralyzed and trapped in her own body.

When an alarm suddenly goes off, she jumps in surprise, knocking over a nearby tray, spilling sharp instruments across the floor.

Are You Afraid of the Dark? Film Will Be Dark and Scary

Published

on

I don’t know about you guys, but I am a huge fan of Nickelodeon’s 90’s kid’s horror anthology “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”. I even own the entire series on DVD with some of my favorite episodes being “Laughing the Dark” and “Dead Man’s Float”.

It is with this in mind, we are excited as hell to pass along the news that the classic series will be making it’s way to the big screen in the near future!

Gary Dauberman the screenwriter behind such recent horror hits as IT, Annabelle: Creation and The Nun has been tasked with penning the script for the new feature film.

“The show is about the shared experience of telling stories — especially scary ones,” Dauberman told THR. “We’re going to celebrate that with this movie and honor the darker, scarier tone of the show, which was really groundbreaking for Nickelodeon at the time. I hope the Midnight Society approves.”

The flick will be hitting us via producer Matt Kaplan (The Darkness) and Paramount’s new division Paramount Players. Which is headed by Brian Robbins (Varsity Blues) and will work with Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, and BET to generate projects.

Did you watch “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” as a kid on Snick? What’re your favorite episodes? Make sure to let us know in the comments below or on social media!

We will let you know as soon as we hear more on Are You Afraid of the Dark? so stay tuned! Until then, you can buy the entire series on DVD starting right HERE!

Synopsis:

This spooky anthology series for kids recounts ghost stories told by the young members of the Midnight Society as they gather around a campfire. Each episode opens with members of the Midnight Society at their secret spot in the woods, where they prepare their fire and the night’s storyteller announces the title of his or her offering. However, the cameras soon leave the storyteller and switch to the tale being told.

The Rampage Trailer Is a Bit More Serious Than I Was Expecting

Published

on

Video game adaptations are no stranger to Hollywood. From movies like Super Mario Bros. to Street Fighter to the Resident Evil franchise, Hollywood has long had its eye on popular video game titles, seeing them as fodder for big screen adaptations. Some of these make total sense, like Silent Hill or Assassin’s Creed.

Regardless of whether or not they’re good movies (something that’s purely subjective), titles like the ones I just mentioned are story-driven, which lends itself to the possibility of a wonderful on-screen narrative. However, there are titles that make absolutely zero sense, and Rampage is one of them.

The game is nothing more than players picking one of three giant monsters (a gorilla, wolf, or lizard) and then proceeding to beat the everliving crap out of cities until only rubble remains. It’s 100% fine that there’s basically nothing of substance behind such a game. Hell, loads of titles are there simply to promote having a good time over getting invested in some grand, sweeping story! But it certainly begs the question, “Why this game?”

Obviously Hollywood can make a spectacle of it, especially with the big budget VFX destruction sequences we’ve been seeing over the years. Plus, the Planet of the Apes films prove that animal CGI has come a long, long way in just a few years. So why is it that when I watch the Rampage trailer that I feel like Hollywood may once again have forgotten what made the game so great in the first place?

Look, I’m absolutely aware that first trailers usually don’t give a clear idea of what the final product will be. We’ve all been through that, and I’m perfectly happy to give Rampage the benefit of the doubt. But whoever made this trailer really wanted it to feel like something serious and gritty.

I guess we’ll know exactly what kind of movie Rampage really is when it hits theaters on April 20, 2018.

Rampage was directed by Brad Peyton and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Synopsis:
Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators.

As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
