The Cabin in the Woods Beastiary Part 3 – The Wraith



Post Thumb:


The clock is ticking toward the September 18th release date of Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s The Cabin in the Woods. It won’t be long before we’re enjoying all the sharp comedy, witty dialogue and brutal monsters we fell in love with when the film had its theatrical run.

We’ve got another group of monsters to highlight for you today: the underrated band of supernatural beasties known as the wraiths.

Unlike their usually silent and unseen ghostly brethren, the nightmarish wraiths often make a habit of getting right in your face and shrieking in your ear. Not cool. The term “wraith” is Scottish in origin, meaning “guardian,” and the specters themselves are sometimes seen as disembodied spirits. The legend of the wraith claims that they can transform humans into beasts like themselves by sucking out their souls. So not cool!

Part of the fearsomeness of the wraith is its mysterious nature. We really don’t know that much about them, aside from the swooping, the shrieking and being generally difficult to get along with. They can be shrouded, death-like figures, similar to the Dementors in the Harry Potter stories, or more spectral. Whatever their appearance, it’s best you keep a good eye on your soul because they will look to suck it right out of you.

Other legends say a wraith is a soul that has been reanimated to do some dastardly bidding. That would explain the hood. No spirit wants to get recognized when kvetching around doing someone else’s dirty work. Might explain the shrieks as well.

Although wraith sightings are not extremely numerous in The Cabin in the Woods (Blu-ray / DVD review), they do make their presence known with a couple of key shots. Wraith attacks are more about quality than quantity anyway. You’ll have to keep a sharp eye out, but they’re in there. See if you can pick out a wraith or two when you get your copy of The Cabin in the Woods on September 18th.

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You



Developer Storymind Entertainment have released the first gameplay trailer for My Eyes On You, and it looks like we’re in for something completely truly unique, in terms of both visuals and narrative.

My Eyes On You takes place in a near future version of Chicago, with FBI agent Jordan Adalien hunting an elusive serial killer known only as the Man in the Red Mask. The decisions you make will also dictate whether the game’s plot stays closer to reality or heads in a supernatural direction, so you’d better be careful what you wish for. Whilst searching for clues will be one of your main areas of focus, combat will also play an important role, too.

The trailer for My Eyes On You certainly gives off a strong Blade Runner 2049 vibe, so if that’s your thing, you’re probably in for a great time. It will be available on PC and consoles, although a release date has not yet been confirmed.

Netflix Renews The Punisher Solo Series for Season Two!



I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!

“The Punisher” is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot, Jim Chory, and Jeph Loeb. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

The cast features Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Jason R Moore, and Paul Schulze.

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
