Thai Horrors Coming at You in 3D with Ghost Coins and The Second SightStill have a thirst for Asian horror that cannot be quenched? Even if you do, you know you’ll be hungry again in an hour. That being said, our friends over at Twitch have score the first news on two new Far East tales of terror: Ghost Coins and Second Sight. Both are in 3D.

Ghost Coins is a new take on a classic tale to be directed by Pawat Panangkasiri, director of 2008′s In The Shadow of The Naga (Nak Prok). In the film “a group of teenagers are consumed by greed and defy tradition by stealing from the dead. A Thai belief instructs relatives to put coins in the mouth of the deceased for the afterlife. But for these reckless teenagers, even dead men’s money, stuck in their lifeless mouth, is still worth robbing. The corpses are decaying, half-rotten, swarmed by maggots. They stink to high heaven. But the teenagers have no qualms to put their hands into the mouths of the dead bodies, through the disgusting slime and goo, to extract the coins known in Thai as “money in the ghost’s mouth.” The more they steal, the more they grow wild and confident. The teenagers set out to the graveyard at Nok Liang Mountain, where the corpse of a millionaire with a mouthful of gold coins is kept. They steal the coins, but this time things are different. The spirit of the man returns with a vengeance, and the grave-robbers face unstoppable horror and violent retaliation. Death is not what the spirit wants, since death is too merciful. What it wants is something more horrifying.

Also shooting in 2013 is The Second Sight, directed by Pornchai Hongrattanaporn from a story by Kongkiat Komesiri. “Jet is a man who has had a psychic ability since he was born. He loathes it because it makes him a freak in the eyes of others. Every time he reports his vision to friends, they think he’s losing his mind. Jet decides to keep his ability a secret. But soon he begins to discover a new use of it: He enters the minds of others and steals their secrets, and from just initial curiosity he starts to exploit such knowledge to his own advantage. When Jet falls in love with a woman, he breaks his own rule. He begins to use his paranormal ability to help his lover in a way that he shouldn’t. And the path of unpredictable future is leading him into a dark, unkind destiny.

Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own

Published

on

Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

Published

on

Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel, this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this, but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods, and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters, and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26, 2017.

Synopsis:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his Navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
