DEADLIGHT, the upcoming Xbox LIVE Arcade title from
developer Tequila Works, sees protagonist Randall Wayne desperate to both
survive the zombie apocalypse and find his missing family. The game combines
entertaining gameplay and dreary art design that seems inspired by fantastic
releases such as LIMBO, with true survival horror elements that challenge you
to narrowly escape every encounter with the undead (with limited health,
weapons and ammunition to assist you in combat). Supported by a great storyline
full of diverse characters, strong voice acting and an excellent score,
DEADLIGHT is the best Summer of Arcade title this year.
Sam Hulick is a BAFTA award-nominated and multiple
award-winning composer best known for composing the signature music for
BioWare’s epic sci-fi franchise MASS EFFECT, and the dramatic score for
Tripwire Interactive’s groundbreaking RED ORCHESTRA 2: HEROES OF STALINGRAD. FANGORIA
recently set down with Hulick to discuss the MASS EFFECT series, which just
released its highly anticipated MASS EFFECT 3: EARTH DLC on July 17th.
If the online buzz didn’t
confirm the hype, then the sold-out crowd at the Toronto After Dark Summer
Screenings certainly did. The packed house was full of anticipation for a film
whose intense trailer and anthology angle has made it an official Big Deal in
the horror scene. The movie has a reputation for being both terrifying and original,
so I guess what we all want to know from the Canadian premiere is: Was it really?

Long Live the New Flesh
It is a beautiful summer Tuesday, and this
is the Long Live the New Flesh roundup of news from the indie horror world for
Following the crowd-pleasing JUAN OF THE
DEAD (my review here)
in the double bill presented by the Toronto After Dark Summer Screenings was THE
PACT. With a confident hand on the wheel, director Nicholas McCarthy weaves
together a complex and pleasingly modern take on the classic haunted house
tale. Like any older house on the market, there are problems – the wiring
doesn’t always connect, one burner is always out on the stove and someone’s
tipsy uncle did the uneven tile in the bathroom—but despite the minor flaws the
foundation is solid.
Another week has passed in the world of horror,
and I’m freshly back from a bit of a weekend away so let’s get right down to it
mutants. Here is what’s happening out there:
Zombie games have infected and devoured their way through
all platforms. Their popularity and demand have never been higher, and as a
gamer and horror fan, it is a trend I'm happy to see. Last month alone saw at
least three major zombie releases, including young Juliet Starling's wacky
adventure in LOLLIPOP CHAINSAW, and now, two new downloadable titles ―ZOMBIE HQ for iOS and
THE WALKING DEAD EPISODE 2: STARVED FOR HELP.
