Date & Specs for Splinter DVD

Published

on

N official art is ready yetToby Wilkins’ “>Splinter is an original horror movie with no big name stars and has garnered positive reviews, so, naturally, it only gets a very small limited release. Like many of you, I’m dying to see Splinter but it isn’t playing anywhere near me and odds are it probably never will. Take heart, folks, it looks like we won’t have to wait too long for a DVD release.

Though only just released to a handful of theaters this past week, Magnolia Pictures has already announced a January 27th street date for Toby Wilkins’ monstrous fright flick. Fangoria got the first word on what will be on the disc, which will come complete with the following:

  • Behind-the-scenes footage
  • Making-of featurette
  • Deleted scenes
  • The art Fango has is not what the DVD will have. Wilkins has been e-mailing us all to make sure that is well known, but as soon as art is finalized we’ll let you know! If you want to see this as much as the rest of us, be sure to click here to pre-order Splinter through Evilshop!

    The Cast of Westworld Explains Why the Show Is a Must-Watch for Horror Fans

    Published

    on

    “Westworld” Season 2 kicks off on Sunday, April 22nd at 9 PM on HBO, and fans of the high-concept sci-fi thriller are chomping at the bit; it’s understandable since Season 1 wrapped way back in late 2016.

    While I have a wide definition of the term “horror”, believing it’s more of a sensation than a genre, many Dread Central readers may be wondering if a show about robot cowboys is worth their time and attention.

    While I’d recommend “Westworld” to anyone who loves stylized violence, gore, and suspense, we challenged members of the cast to sell the series to potentially reluctant horror fans. How would they respond, for example, to a friend who dismisses the show because they watch horror almost exclusively?

    Here are the responses we got from Luke Hemsworth (who plays Head of Security Ashley Stubbs), Angela Sarafyan (who plays host Clementine Pennyfeather), and Clifton Collins, Jr. (who plays both Lawrence and El Lazo).

    Dread Central: Complete this sentence: “If you love horror movies, you should watch ‘Westworld’ because…”

    Luke Hemsworth: If you love horror movies, you should watch “Westworld” because it’s really gory. It’s pretty dark and it’s also pretty smart.

    Angela Sarafyan: You should definitely watch “Westworld” because it makes you face death. It’s a show that questions your mortality. The show not only projects these feelings, but makes you think about the boundlessness of human destruction and how far we can take our reality. Meaning: Will technology eventually be our destruction?

    Clifton Collins, Jr: If you love horror movies, you should watch “Westworld” because the same rushes you get from scares in a horror movie, those thrilling and suspenseful events happen in the show. Just from reading it I can tell Season 2 is really cranked-up compared to Season 1. You’re going to have those moments where your heart palpitates or skips a beat and a lot of “Oh my gosh!” moments. There are some serious white-knuckle moments this season. It’s the same thrill you get from watching a horror film!


    Westworld isn’t your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park — which is looked after by robotic “hosts” — allows its visitors to live out their fantasies through artificial consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park’s guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged. “Westworld” — which is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton movie of the same name — features an all-star cast that includes Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins and Golden Globe winner Ed Harris.

    New Interactive Xenomorph Game Launches This Alien Day

    Published

    on

    Alien Day is rapidly approaching on April 26th and today we have news that a new first-of-its-kind interactive survival game is on its way via 20th Century Fox.

    The game invites players to experience the intensity and imminent threats of Alien individually, or up to three players in collaborative gameplay and is called Alien: Offworld Colony Simulator. It’s a turned-based survival game that simulates a Weyland-Yutani Space Colony in security lockdown.

    Weyland-Yutani is inviting civilians to participate in an open Beta test of “The Offworld Colony Simulator” – an advanced system that simulates security breach scenarios in non-terrestrial colonies. Those that participate in the Open Beta will help teach the system’s AI to accurately simulate human behavior in the face of otherworldly dangers.

    Utilizing the Amazon Alexa service, players need to collect items, solve puzzles and explore unmarked territories to successfully move through the colony, unlock sectors, and avoid capture in a Xenomorph-infested space colony.

    If you can’t wait until Alien Day, get a head start with the Weyland-Yutani Career Placement Test – a multi-question aptitude test to determine if applicants have what it takes for a role at the interplanetary Weyland-Yutani organization. Complemented with a sweepstakes, the test launches for fans on April 23 at AlienUniverse.com.

    The game launches exclusively on Amazon Alexa Devices & Alienuniverse.com one minute prior to Alien Day at 11:59 PM ET on April 25th.
