Post Thumb:


Square Enix Announces New Vampire Title BloodMasqueSquare Enix has announced a new vampire-hunting RPG called BloodMasque that will be coming to iOS devices. Players can even customize their vampire hunter with their very own photos which makes the experience even more realistic.

Read on to learn more.

From the Press Release
Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announced that its new vampire-hunting action RPG mobile game, BLOODMASQUE, will be available this summer on all iOS devices (iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad). To further enhance the eerie atmosphere of BLOODMASQUE, players can use their photos (headshots) when customizing their characters, allowing them to face the vampire threat head on.

BLOODMASQUE is powered by Unreal Technology, and the accompanying trailer demonstrates the game’s interactive character customization technology and gameplay footage.

In BLOODMASQUE, players take the role of hunters in vampire-ruled Paris during the late 19th century. As the dark night looms for mankind, hunters must fight the vampires’ insidious oppression and thwart their dark designs.

BLOODMASQUE allows players to snap a picture of themselves with their devices’ front-facing camera or use existing photos. The photos are then stylized to naturally fit the aesthetics of the game. As players prepare for battle, BLOODMASQUE allows them to optimize their party by choosing available characters that have been created by others. Together, they can unite to defeat the onslaught of the vampires.


  • Snap a photo for your hunter’s face, then add expressions for combat and cutscenes.
  • Customize your look using a variety of skin tones, bone structures, and hairstyles.
  • Fight to free humanity from the bloodthirsty reign of the dread vampires.
  • Immerse yourself in the deep and engaging tale of the vampire hunters.
  • Stalk the mysterious vampires that prowl the streets of Paris in 1890.
  • Unmask vampires’ true forms and slay them in intuitive and dynamic combat.
  • Stay on your toes as vampires seek to siphon away your blood.
  • Unleash the vampire blood within you to devastate your foes.

    Jamie Lee Curtis Says Blumhouse Halloween Will Make Us “Very Happy and VERY Scared”



    Bring. It. On.

    It was only last week that we let you guys know that Jamie Lee Curtis had wrapped filming on Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

    And today we have another Instagram post from the legendary scream queen where she not only shows us a creepy-ass painting of Michael Myers, but she lets us know that Blumhouse’s Halloween is going to make us all “very happy, and VERY scared.”


    I don’t know about you, but I’m going to just go ahead and trust Jamie Lee Curtis on this one. She’s been around the Halloween block more than a few times and I trust her judgment… other than Halloween: Resurrection.

    You can check out her post below and then let us know how excited you are for Laurie Strode’s return!

    Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer of the film as well as the composer.

    The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.


    Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

    Death House Theatrical Release Delayed One Week Due to Black Panther Success



    Death House

    If you were excited to see Death House this week, you’re going to have to pump your brakes as the film’s theatrical release has been postponed one week due to the success of Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther.

    Eric Pakrinson, C.E.O. of Hannover House, who is distributing Death House in theaters, states, “Obviously, we are very disappointed to find such pressure from the exhibitors to hold-over multiple screens for ‘Black Panther’ but we are happy for the success that this film is providing to theatre owners, and we know that the slight delay we are implementing for ‘Death House’ will ultimately pay big dividends for the film.”

    The plan is to now launch Death House on Friday, March 2nd, with a special media event and public opening at the Regency Plant 16 in Van Nuys, California, where 20 cast members, along with additional crew, will be present. From there, the film will spread to other markets on March 9th and March 16th. If performances are strong, additional markets will be added following those dates.

    This shift in release also pushes back the home video and digital release dates to July, although no official date has been locked.

    Director Harrison Smith recorded a video asking the horror community to turn out in droves when the film hits their market. You can see it below.
