Alcalde to Direct Who Can Kill a Child Remake

Published

on

I told you to clean up your rooms!!!Sometimes it is just a better idea to stay on the mainland. If you’re new to a certain area, don’t go gallivanting off with your spouse to some mysterious island or cornfield where adults are strangely absent. It never bodes well.

Bloody Disgusting is reporting that David Alcalde, director of the short “Happy Birthday to You”, will be at the helm of the remake of Narciso Ibáñez Serrador’s disturbing Who Can Kill a Child? (review). This info also appears on IMDB with Alcalde getting screenplay credit with David Muñoz. The title, which could change, is listed as In the Playground. It isn’t really as snappy, eh?

The original film was based off a novel by Juan José Plans, but it changed around a few things and omitted the cause of the children’s madness all together. Does this mean Mr. Alcalde and crew may try to make a more faithful adaptation? Only time will tell.

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.
