Exclusive: Otis Audio Makeup Walkthrough!



The Otis audio makeup walkthrough!We’ve been working with Tony Krantz, one of the three producers behind the Raw Feed DVD series as well as the director of “>Sublime (DVD review) from the first batch and “>Otis (review) from the forthcoming set, to put together some very unique goodies just for Dread Central readers.

Today we’re very proud to present the first of those features: a makeup effects audio walkthrough with Tony and effects man Myke Michaels featuring stills from the film and behind-the-scenes. We’ve never tried anything like this before, but damn was it fun!

Before we go much further, I have to warn you: There are some SPOILERS discussed in the last few pictures, nothing too huge but I know how much it’d piss me off if I wasn’t warned!

“>Click here to get started on the walkthrough! On the right you’ll see a series of images from Otis; as you click on them, they will load in the main window with an audio file featuring Tony and Myke discussing what went into that particular scene in terms of what the actor/actress had gone through and the kind of prep work Myke did to make sure the bruises, cuts, and full-on gore effects were as believable as possible.

There’s an intro piece where you can hear about Myke’s history in effects, which is quite impressive on its own, as well as an outro that will give burgeoning effects specialists out there some good ideas on how to get started in the business!

We really hope you guys dig it, so please pile on the feedback below! There’s more coming to spread the word on Otis , which hits DVD June 10th (pre-order), so don’t even consider moving!

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy



We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth



Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
