Exclusive: Coffin Carousel Rock Your Halloween in “Skull Candy”

Published

on

We’ve been making a lot of movie suggestions for you this Halloween. However, for those of you who are hosting parties and don’t want to put movies on in the background but would rather have a solid music playlist, this post is for you!

We’ve teamed up with Melbourne, Australia “horror-rock punk doom-pop” outfit Coffin Carousel to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for their track “Skull Candy”! The song comes from the band’s second full-length album Between Death & Dead, which came out October 13th via Eclipse Records.

Singer and director Howard Von Noise tells Dread Central, “Filming Skull Candy was a great experience. I got to develop a short story idea at a great location in Melbourne, Australia called Cabinet of Curiosities, which is a tattoo shop, burlesque school, and recording studio. Madam Dreadful, who acted as one of the surgeons in the music video, runs her burlesque school there and her husband, who has been doing all my latest tattoo work, runs his tattoo studio out of there also. It has all these oddities and spooky bones spread all over the walls which gives it a creepy feel.

We basically just turned up and started filming as all the props were already there. Bringing together the concept of having candy pulled from my skull and a downtown creepy “Sin City-esque” doctor’s surgery was a lot of fun. I had the band’s stage dancers Madam Dreadful and Miss Holly Wouldn’t act out scenes taking blood samples and removing my brains. Again, continuing my obsession with the Toxic Avenger, we featured the green goo that has appeared in previous music videos the band has done. The green goo is essentially colored pudding and tastes really sweet.

Conceiving, directing and also editing the music video was a great challenge to bring all the ideas to life. It was a lot of fun in the end mainly because we captured everything we planned to film and it all worked, considering the budget was low. In the end, we got a great horror-inspired music video with some subtle Tim Burton/Addams Family vibes in there as well as the life-size coffin and our trademark smoky feel.

You can buy Between Death & Dead via the band’s official website.

Giallo Makes A Comeback With Crystal Eyes

Published

on

The giallo genre has somewhat fallen off the radar in recent years, but that’s all about to change with the new Argentinian film Crystal Eyes (original title: Mirada de Cristal). Set in 1985, the film’s about a series of murders taking place in the glamorous and colorful fashion world, so it sounds like a true giallo throwback.

Crystal Eyes was directed by Ezequiel Endelman and Leandro Montejano, and stars Silvia Montanari, Anahí Politi, Erika Boveri, and Claudio Armesto. It screened at both the Mar del Plata International Film Festival and the Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre Film Festival, and received a great audience reception at both. We were sent the trailer for the film along with the poster and a bunch of lobby cards, which we proudly present below.

Investigate The Paranormal In The X-Files: Deep State Mobile Game

Published

on

“The X-Files” franchise will turn 25 next year, and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a new video game? That’s right, the mobile game The X-Files: Deep State will be released in February 2018, and, in the style of the show, will feature a story about aliens and government conspiracies. The events of the game will take place in the year 2010, between seasons nine and ten of the show.

The X-Files: Deep State is being developed by Creative Mobile Games and will be published by FoxNext, and as with the majority of mobile games these days, will be free to play with in-game purchases.

Meanwhile, season 11 of “The X-Files” TV series will premiere on January 3, 2018. Which may be its last hurrah, because I dread to think what Disney will do with the franchise if they ultimately do end up purchasing 20th Century Fox.
