    Confirmed: Guillermo del Toro’s “SILENT HILLS” Cancelled by Konami

    While 2014 found many long-anticipated horror video games hitting consoles, including the FANGO Cover-donning THE EVIL WITHIN, there was nothing that scared gamers more effectively and unexpectedly as P.T. (short for “playable teaser”), the demo level for Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima’s upcoming SILENT HILLS, which was being developed by Konami and aimed to star WALKING DEAD icon Norman Reedus. But after a long-development process, SILENT HILLS, which was due to hit Playstation consoles in 2016, has hit several obstacles, the largest being Kojima’s abrupt exit from the project to further work on METAL GEAR SOLID V. And despite Konami’s claim that they were to make SILENT HILLS  with or without Kojima, social media reports following Guillermo del Toro’s appearance at the San Francisco International Film Festival have stated the project itself may be dead.

    Event Report: “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” Into The Further 4D Experience!

    While this may seem somewhat of a generic mantra for a horror fan, this writer is always searching for that next big scare. As haunted house experiences get more and more interactive and the media landscape changes, that search becomes increasingly adventurous and new. But while I’ve experienced horror in theme park attractions, theaters, haunts, video games and many more places, I’ve yet to experience horror in the world of virtual reality. However, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 was willing to change that with their now-touring ‘Into The Further 4D Experience’.

    Book Review: “SEX AND HORROR: THE ART OF EMANUELE TAGLIETTI” (NSFW)

    Artist Emanuele Taglietti is one of the most celebrated masters to emerge from that unique period in 1970’s Italy, when morale shifted and the popular fumetti (Italian comic books, literally translated as “puffs of smoke”, an allusion to speech bubbles) followed more liberal strains of genre cinema and more overt, explicit sexuality was visualized on their covers. Tagleitti, a former set designer who had worked with Fellini, jumped on this, exploiting the comforts of working from home by becoming a full-fledged cover illustrator, nurturing a style that was sensual, lurid, saturated and bristling with energy.

    Exclusive Report: On The Set of John Carpenter’s “LOST THEMES” Video, ‘Night’

    It’s been amazing as a life long John Carpenter fan to witness the Renaissance for the man himself and for all of his work in these last few years. On the movie front, Scream Factory has been doing a pretty stellar job restoring and re-releasing some of his most notable genre titles on Blu-Ray. Meanwhile, the fine folks over at Death Waltz Recordings have been focusing on vinyl releases of his scores.
