Watch the First 4 Minutes of Renaud Gauthier's DiscopathOur Canadian friends will be able to see Discopath (review here) on DVD and digital/cable VOD beginning next week, and today we have a look at the first four minutes of the film along with its new artwork and a few stills.

From the Press Release:
Black Fawn Distribution and Juice are pleased to release the first four minutes of their new acquisition Discopath.

After selling out its World Premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival, Discopath has traveled the world, leaving its ‘70s era disco stamp on festivals from Brazil to Brussels. Now, the award winning slasher has found a home on DVD in Canada through Black Fawn Distribution and on digital and cable VOD via Juice. Discopath is set for release in Canada on Tuesday, June 10th.

“Discopath has become a fan favourite at film festivals everywhere, and it has generated a lot of buzz,” states Black Fawn Distribution’s owner Chad Archibald. “We felt it would be a cool idea to give horror fans a sneak peek. The opening of Discopath really highlights Renaud’s attention to detail and sets up the style for the rest of the film.”

Juice’s president Paul Zimic concurs: “We’re extremely proud of Discopath, and we couldn’t have a more perfect partner to release than the dedicated and twisted minds at Black Fawn Distribution.”

Discopath has been celebrated at film festivals around the world including Fantasia International Film Festival (Montreal), Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (Brussels, Belgium), FrightFest (London, UK), and The Blood in the Snow Film Festival (Toronto), where it took home Best Film, Best Actor, and Best Screenplay honours.

The Discopath DVD will include commentary with director Renaud Gauthier, actor Ivan Freud, and composer Bruce Cameron as well as an exclusive 24-minute behind-the-scenes documentary.

If you’re in the US, you can also watch it on Amazon Instant while we await some Stateside distro news.

Synopsis:
In the debut feature film from director Renaud Gauthier, a timid young New Yorker in the mid-70s leads an uneventful life until he is fatefully exposed to the pulsating rhythms of a brand new genre of music: disco! Unable to control his murderous impulses that stem from a traumatic childhood experience, Duane Lewis (Jeremie Earp-Lavernge) transforms into a dangerous serial killer exiled to Montreal. Discopath features an unbelievable set design and a killer disco soundtrack (featuring cuts from KC & The Sunshine Band and Kiss).

Published

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.
