Twilight Time Set to Release 1988 Remake of The Blob on Blu-rayPicking up where the big studios have been leaving off, home video label Twilight Time has for the last few years been releasing some pretty damn awesome horror flicks on Blu-ray, including the original Fright Night and Tom Savini’s remake of Night of the Living Dead.

Joining them next is the 1988 version of The Blob, headed our way just in time for Halloween! As the company just revealed, October 14th will mark the Blu-ray release of The Blob.

Joining it on Blu will be a handful of other horror films, including Audrey Rose (1977), The Believers (1987), Man Hunt (1941), Under Fire (1987), and The Vanishing (1997).

Typical for Twilight Time, all of the releases will be limited with The Blob being cut off at 5,000 copies and the others limited to only 7,000.

Directed by Chuck Russell, The Blob is one of the better horror remakes we’ve yet seen, centering on a strange pink life form that consumes everything in its path as it grows and grows.

Netflix Sets Ian Somerhalder for New Vampire Series V-Wars

Published

on

Ian Somerhalder will always be Boone from Lost to me. That’s just the way it is. That said, I’m aware the actor is probably best known for his role on The Vampire Diaries.

But now that that vampire series is over and done with it looks like Deadline reports Somerhalder will be ditching the vampires and leading another series about… vampires?

Yes, Netflix has given a 10-episode order to V-Wars, based on Jonathan Maberry’s bestselling book, which was published in 2012 as a series of stories chronicling the first Vampire War.

Somerhalder is attached to star and also direct the hourlong drama from IDW Entertainment and High Park Entertainment.

We could not have dreamed of a better choice than Ian Somerhalder to bring his keen understanding of this genre from his years of starring in The Vampire Diaries to lead the cast of V-Wars as Dr. Luther Swann and to be a creative force on this series, as well as to serve as a director this season,” said Ozer, President, IDW Entertainment. “We are thrilled to partner with Netflix to bring the multifaceted world that Jonathan Maberry created to audiences worldwide.”

Brad Turner will direct the pilot episode and executive produce with William Laurin and Glenn Davis serving as showrunners. Eric Birnberg and Thomas Walden will executive produce with David Ozer, Ted Adams, and James Gibb.

Synopsis:

Somerhalder will star as Dr. Luther Swann, who enters a world of untold horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne, into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans. As the disease spreads and more people are transformed, society fractures into opposing camps pitting normal people against the growing number of these “vampires.” Swann races against time to understand what’s happening, while Fayne rises to become the powerful underground leader of the vampires.

God of War Becomes the Highest Rated PS4 Exclusive On Metacritic

Published

on

If you’ve been paying any attention to the video game press over the last couple of days, you’ll know that God of War has been receiving some truly spectacular reviews. So much so, in fact, that it’s now the highest-rated PlayStation 4 exclusive game on Metacritic of all time, with an astounding score of 95%. The only PS4 games to score equal or higher are Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us, both of which were enhanced ports of previous PS3 releases.

God of War, which was developed by Sony Santa Monica, does away with the Greek mythology setting that was prevalent in the previous games, with Kratos, having destroyed the Olympian gods many years prior, now embarking on a quest with his son Atreus to scatter his wife’s ashes atop a sacred mountain.

Particular points of praise from reviewers were went towards the realistic graphics, the Norse mythological setting, the revamped combat system, the use of a continuous camera shot with no cuts, and the performances of Christopher Judge and Sunny Suljic as Kratos and Atreus. And as you would have come to expect from the franchise by now, the game is also as violent and brutal as it gets, so much so that the ESRB even promised that we’ll be able to tear off enemies’ jaws.

God of War will hit stores on April 20.
