San Diego Comic-Con 2013: Spend Your Nights in a REAL Haunted House With Dread Central and The San Diego Ghost HuntersDue to the overwhelming response we’ve added another set of tickets for each night of the tours. These things are going fast! Get them while you can!

Several months back we had the chance to experience a private ghost tour in the William Heath Davis House. The experience was so frighteningly unbelievable that we felt the need to bring it to you guys on a grand scale at the biggest show of the year. We are officially partnering with the Gaslamp Museum and the San Diego Ghost Hunters to offer ghost tours throughout the duration of the San Diego Comic-Con.

The William Heath Davis House is located just two blocks away from the Convention Center at 410 Island Ave., and it’s guaranteed to provide you guys with something truly real and frightening to do and talk about. Tours start on Thursday and will be held twice a day, once at 9:00 PM and then again at 12:00 Midnight. Admission is $60.00 per person WITH ALL PROCEEDS going to the upkeep of this truly historic building. Attendees are encouraged to bring cameras and recorders and take pictures. As many as possible. These flashlight tours can get extremely spooky as you’re not just gonna be sitting there listening to a history lesson of each room. YOU will be conducting the investigation. YOU will be a part of this search through one of the most haunted and active areas in the world.

Then on Saturday night, July 20th, there will be an exclusive ALL ACCESS tour from Midnight until… well… whenever we finish. Please note that this special event will be very limited. Food will be served beforehand, and nerves will be shattered afterwards. This is NOT a walk-through with actors looking to pop out at you. This is THE REAL DEAL. The Exclusive Saturday Night Tour will cost just $100.00 a head, but that’s nothing considering the experience you are likely to have. Especially when it comes to the attic portion of the house, which will ONLY be open on the Saturday tour. The house becomes VERY active after 1:00 AM, and staff will be on hand to escort you out should the experience prove to be too much for you.

Please note that people who are drinking or under the influence of ANY substance will NOT be allowed to participate in ANY of the tours, and we reserve the right to refuse admittance to anyone not in the condition to show both the house and its inhabitants the proper respect.

Tickets for these events are EXTREMELY LIMITED so head on over to the Gaslamp Museum website or the San Diego Ghost Hunters website for more info and to reserve your spot ASAP. In case of cancellations there may be some tickets available at the door for each event. You never know!

See you there!

From the cover of Kyd's first Vermintide OST

Get your headphones ready, Warhammer fans because State of Decay and Darksiders 2 composer Jesper Kyd is back to score the upcoming Warhammer title Vermintide 2! The game will be coming to PC and consoles early this year.

Kyd was inspired by Norse mythology, utilizing ancient tribal music as well as dark fantastical elements to build upon the acoustic soundscapes he composed for the first Vermintide game. Channeling his own Scandinavian roots, Kyd will blend Viking and Norse-inspired vocals with ritualistic percussion styles to create a unique soundtrack experience.

Three tracks from the score can be heard below.

Like Me – Will You Like This Dystopian Thriller?

Published

on

Starring Addison Timlin, Ian Nelson, Larry Fessenden

Directed by Robert Mockler


While Like Me is not dystopian in the classic science-fiction sense, it does aptly put the downer vibe across. If the present is abysmal, then the future is downright hopeless. We learn this as we follow an unhinged teenage loner called Kiya (Addison Timlin) on a hollow crime spree that she broadcasts on social media. At first the world “likes” her—with the exception of YouTube rival Burt (Ian Nelson), who disdainfully denounces her viral videos—but pride goes before the fall, and Kiya’s descent is spectacular.

If you’ve peeped the trailer for Like Me, then you’re probably expecting a horror movie. I mean, they’ve got the requisite menacing masked baddie and they’ve got genre icon Larry Fessenden in a major role—those are a couple of the key ingredients, right? Yes they are, but this simmering, shimmering stew of Natural Born Killers, Excision and King Kelly, it boils down to a whole lotta nothing. Like Me is sort of a drama, kind of a road trip flick, and almost a thriller. It succeeds at none yet does stand on its own as a compelling collection of cool visuals and pertinent performances. But is that enough?

While Kiya is a compelling character on the surface, there’s barebones beneath. Sure, she’s a Millennial mind-fed on random online clips and snappy soundbites—but what turned her into a psychopath? Was she born that way? Is social media to blame? We’ll never know, because not a hint is given. I don’t mind ambiguity, but even a morsel would have been welcome in this case. As Kiya ramps up her reckless exhibitionistic extremes, the stakes are never raised. In the end, who cares? Maybe that’s the point.

A word of warning: If you plan on watching this movie while chomping snacks…don’t. There is stomach-turning scene after vomit-inducing scene of orgiastic easting, binging, and the inevitable purging. I’m sure it’s all metaphorical mastication, a cutting comment on disposable consumption. I get it. But I don’t wanna look at it, again and again and again. Having said that, Like Me is an experimental film and in its presentation of such grotesquery, it’s quite accomplished. Montages, split-screens and jittered motions are scattered throughout, showing us all sorts of unpleasant things…Kudos to the editor.

I didn’t hate Like Me. But I do think one has to be in the mood for a movie such as this. It’s not an easy or entertaining watch, but it is a peculiar and thought-provoking one. There’s some style and mastery behind the camera, and I am curious to see what first-time writer-director Rob Mockler comes up with next.
