Nerdist's Fall Lineup Includes The Real Housewives of Horror and Scott Ian's BloodworksJust about a year ago, in November of 2013 to be exact, we shared the Nerdist’s killer video entitled “The Real Housewives of Horror,” which people were clamoring to be made into a full-on series. That wish has been granted.

From the Press Release:
Summer may be coming to a close, but fear not! Nerdist Industries has a veritable cornucopia of new content premiering this fall to get you through the coming months.

Nerdist is coming out swinging with a fall lineup filled with some heavy-hitting content, including, but definitely not limited to: “Scott Ian’s Bloodworks,” which offers an exclusive look at the most impressive makeup and effects artists in the business from musician Scott Ian of Anthrax, and “The Real Housewives of Horror,” a gruesome parody of, you guessed it, the “Real Housewives” shows, created by and starring Brea Grant (“Dexter,” “Heroes”) and executive produced by Kevin Pereira (G4’s “Attack of the Show”).

If you want something truly horrific, look no further than “The Real Housewives of Horror,” which is exactly what it sounds like – Kevin Pereira and Brea Grant’s pitch perfect parody of those “Real Housewives” shows but with the assumption that all the Housewives are married to famous movie monsters, serial killers, and all manner of spooky, scary creatures. They’re at least as frightening as the actual Housewives, if not ten to seventy-five percent scarier.

“It is a privilege to work with Nerdist again,” says “RHOH’s” Kevin Pereira, “Very few companies ask if you can make the blood more splattery or the poltergeists more sexy.”

If you consider yourself a true horrorhound, you definitely won’t want to miss “Scott Ian’s Bloodworks,” an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the best, brightest, and bloodiest special effects and makeup houses in the business hosted by musician Scott Ian of Anthrax. Ever wonder how the zombies on “The Walking Dead” look so good when Michonne is beheading them with her katana? You’ll find out that and much, much more on “Scott Ian’s Bloodworks.” Just be sure to bring a poncho because you are likely sitting in the splash zone.

Scott Ian says, “I am very excited to be doing “Bloodworks” with Nerdist. Let me rephrase that… I am a little bit nervous, nauseous, filled with dread, and sometimes scared shitless about committing to this show and letting these FX lunatics have their way with me as this season is going to be crazier, bloodier, guttier, and more fucked-upier!”

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

Published

on

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.

Synopsis:
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

Published

on

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.
