Watch the First Episode of American Murder Song Presents: The Black Wagon

Published

on

A couple of months ago we alerted you that Terrance Zdunich and Saar Hendelman’s The Donner Party Reunion Tour is kicking off in October, and now we’re back with an update on that along with a look at the first episode of the duo’s spooky new video series, American Murder Song Presents: The Black Wagon.

From the Press Release:
In 1846, a hungry, hungry party of American pioneers were stranded for a winter in the Sierra Nevada mountains. What followed was madness, murder… and some good eatin’. Over 150 years later, the plight of those culinary trailblazers has inspired cult film composers Terrance Zdunich (Repo! The Genetic Opera) and Saar Hendelman (The Devil’s Carnival franchise) to cook up a tasty new video series and interactive touring event The Donner Party Reunion Tour.

During American Murder Song’s debut year, Terrance and Saar invited listeners to indulge in a series of bloody tales, ballads, and music videos that featured killers pushing west in the young America of 1816. Now, inspired by 1960’s television spook shows, the genre-defying duo has imagined the one and only true retelling of The Donner Party experience via the lens of their own fictional “Twilight Zone”-style show: THE BLACK WAGON.

Don’t touch that dial. Witness the first episode of American Murder Song Presents: The Black Wagon, directed by Jake Akuna.

This Halloween season, Terrance and Saar are taking to the road with sets, costumes, and a ragtag crew of performers to create an historical, musical reenactment of cannibalistic proportions. Climb aboard The Black Wagon and experience the songs, sets, and human snacks live on The Donner Party Reunion Tour.

All tour stops feature meet and greet opportunities with Terrance and Saar, and all tickets come with a free download of their new The Donner Party album. To purchase a digital download of The Donner Party or to order tickets to The Donner Party Reunion Tour today, visit: AmericanMurderSong.com/GetTickets. But hurry – tickets are going fast and are already sold out in some cities.

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating

Published

on

Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations

Published

on

The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
