December Has a Pulse



Pulse DVD (click for a larger view)Oh, what a field day critics had with this film’s title. Many have told me that it was just another dumbed down remake of a great film from Japan, but I will have to wait until the unrated DVD release to make up my own mind.

Davis DVD has released a high resolution image of Pulse‘s DVD that will be released on December 5th. This cover looks a lot more violent than the poster I’ve seen at the cinema but will the “Unrated” branding actually make it worth the purchase?

The 90-minute unrated cut of the film will feature Dolby Digital 5.1 and a 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer while the theatrical cut will only be available in fullscreen. You can clearly see which DVD they’re betting on. The favored DVD comes armed with filmmaker commentaries and four featurettes including “Creating The Fear: Making Pulse,” “The Visual Effects of Pulse,” and “Pulse and The Paranormal.” Perhaps this incarnation of the film will prove that PG-13 ratings ruin good films … or not. We’ll see in a couple months.

For those of you that missed the film or gave up after the near endless push backs, Pulse is about ghosts and technology starring Kristen Bell and Ian Somerhalder. Pretty people are terrorized by pale, twisted souls that can attack through televisions and walls. It seems their only weakness is red tape … yup … red tape. You can read all about it in Debi’s review.

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating



Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations



The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
