Recently we caught up with French writer and director Nicolas Simonin (the man behind the much buzzed-about short film Derailed), who provided us word and a trailer for his next horror short, Seizures.

Written, directed and produced by Simonin, Seizures stars Jonno Roberts (“C.S.I.”, “Person of Interest”, “Lie to Me”), Veronica Wylie and Scott Loska and centers around (according to the official synopsis) the character of “Vincent, a photojournalist suffering from a brain injury, [who] tries to reconnect with his past by developing old film strips of pictures he doesn’t even remember. Everything leads him to a strange gas station, where the man will face his worst nightmare.”

“It’s a film in the vein of Jacob’s Ladder, Angel Heart and Memento,” Simonin said of his sixteen-minute Seizures, which is slated to make its North American festival debut this fall. “It’s a psychological thriller with some disturbing, shocking images,” he continued. “If Derailed was like a dreamy nightmare, Seizures will offer more of a physical experience of nightmare and confusion.”

Emboldened by the positive festival reactions Derailed garnered (the flick screened at Screamfest 2011, Cannes 2011 and A Night of Horror in Sydney, Australia, among others, as well as being among Eli Roth’s Top10 finalist choice at Universal Studios’ Eyegore Awards 2011), the inspired filmmaker shot Seizures in San Diego over the course of four days last year on the Canon 5D and Canon 7D. Financed primarily via a successful crowd-sourcing campaign, the film employed the talents of a multi-national cast and crew, including Americans Olivia Kuan and Afton Adams (director of photography and makeup supervisor, respectfully), Argentinian sound designer Yamil Burguener, UK composer Zoe Blade, French editor Sylviane Tosi, and more.

Of his inspiration for Seizures, “After exploring the darkness of a city like Paris in Derailed,” said Simonin, who is now a proud Los Angeleno, “I wanted to do a film that would show the experience inside the head of the lead, something about the perception of your surroundings. Everything started with some research I did about brain seizures, and I began to wonder what would be the life of someone suffering from them, who is able to feel the present, the past, and the future.”

Published

on

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

Published

on

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.

New God of War Story Trailer Calls to You

Published

on

This morning, Sony unleashed a new trailer for God of War 4, the upcoming continuation of the story of Kratos. Full of rich, vibrant, and epic imagery, the trailer expands on the dynamics we’ll be seeing at play in this game, mainly the struggle of Kratos being a father and choosing how, and when, to reveal his Godliness to his son, Atreus. All of this takes place as they embark on a journey to fulfill the last wishes of Kratos’ late wife, who wished for her ashes to be spread in a distant location.

Directed by Cory Barlog, God of War 4 will be the first entry in the franchise to not feature Terrence C. Carson as the voice of Kratos. Rather, that responsibility has now fallen upon Christopher Judge (Dead Space: Aftermath, Reaper), who also provided the motion capture for the character.

A Playstation 4 exclusive, God of War 4 will be coming to the console on April 20 this year.

Synopsis:
Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.
