Earlier this week in our interview with Dark Horse Comics Senior Managing Editor Scott Allie, we mentioned that the World Horror Convention is happening March 29th-April 1st in Salt Lake City, and already a few bits of news are coming out from it.

From the Press Release:
In conjunction with the release of Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden’s latest collaboration, Joe Golem and the Drowning City, earlier this week and Mignola’s appearance at this weekend’s World Horror Convention, Dark Horse is pleased to announce a limited edition hardcover release of the book.

After a séance gone horribly wrong, strange men wearing gas masks and rubber suits abduct the aging psychic Orlov the Conjuror, sending his young assistant, Molly McHugh, racing through the canals of a submerged Manhattan. As Molly flees her captors through a sunken city full of scavengers, her one hope comes in the form of two strange men: Simon Church, a Victorian-era detective kept alive by clockwork gears and magic, and his assistant, Joe, whose mysterious past is hinted at in dreams of stone and witches.

“Joe and his world are made up of all those things I love: crumbling ruins, strange Victorian devices, and unknowable supernatural forces,” said co-creator Mike Mignola. “These are the very same elements that went into the creation of Hellboy but here hammered into different shape and relocated to New York City. Hellboy is Joe’s country cousin.”

The deluxe limited edition collection features multiple illustrations by Hellboy artist Mike Mignola, as well as a signature plate signed by both Mignola and Golden, and is presented in a handsome slipcase. Additionally, only the Dark Horse edition will feature the previously unpublished story “Joe Golem and the Copper Girl.”

The deluxe hardcover edition of Joe Golem and the Drowning City will be released in an extremely limited edition of only 1,000 copies on September 26th and will retail for $99.99.

Live-Action F.E.A.R. Adaptation Coming To Machinima

Published

on

Screenwriter Greg Russo has signed a deal with Machinima to pen an adaptation of the F.E.A.R. video game franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The article did not specify whether the adaptation would be in the form of a film or a series.

Russo, who is a lifelong gamer, will work with Machinima on creating and developing the F.E.A.R. adaptation, although we don’t know much else at this point. Machinima are a subsidiary of Warner Bros., and it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the F.E.A.R. franchise has also been owned by WB since 2009. In other words, Warner Bros. were bound to give us a live action adaptation of F.E.A.R. at one point, so we’re not too surprised by this development.

Russo, who is also writing the scripts for the Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil reboots, was quoted as saying the following:

“As a lifelong gamer, it’s an absolute honor to partner with Machinima, the preeminent provider of digital content to gamers worldwide. F.E.A.R. holds a special place in my heart. I’m excited to bring my personal passion to this and future projects and can’t wait to see where our partnership goes from here.”

An acronym for First Encounter Assault Recon, the F.E.A.R. games focus on an elite task force who fight to stop Alma Wade, a young girl with incredible psychic powers, from tearing apart the fabric of reality. Legendary film director John Carpenter served as story consultant on the third game, which we awarded a highly positive review back in the day. We’ll bring you more on Machinima’s adaptation when it becomes availalbe.

Short Film RETINA Will Strain Your Eyes

Published

on

We’ve been paying a lot of attention to the young filmmaker Alex J. Mann around these parts, because his projects are so unique and innovative that we can never wait to see what he’ll cook up next. Mann has just released his latest short, Retina, on his Space Oddity Films YouTube channel, and you can give it a watch below. It’s just under two minutes long and doesn’t contain any dialogue, but this is still a short which will keep you up at night.

Retina is described as being about “A young man’s fight to shut off his laptop camera turns deadly.” It was written and directed by Mann, and stars Dan J. Johnson in a singular performance. Retina also contains some gruesome images, and is most definitely not safe for work.
