As The Dark Tower heads to disc, we take a look back at a screen year that's been big for Stephen King adaptations...
In the late 60s and early 1970s, a new generation of horror storytellers brought the genre out of the past and into the troubled, turbulent present. In cinemas, such directors as George A Romero, Tobe Hooper and David Cronenberg ushered in a new age of modern, fleshier horror, where the images were disturbing and the capes and castles of old Dracula and Frankenstein movies were entirely absent.
Over in the literary world, such writers as Ira Levin (Rosemary's Baby) and William Peter Batty (The Exorcist) were injecting creating a similarly seismic impact, sparking a pulp horror boom that would last until well into the 1980s. Few authors, however, have enjoyed the fame or the sheer longevity of Stephen King. Still in his 20s when his first novel,
Dying Light: Bad Blood will see 6 players dropped into a zombie infested zone with the objective to collect blood samples from the infected. The more samples collected by the group will provide more places available in the extraction chopper, however, the players who have the most samples will secure a place so expect backstabbing and a mean fight for survival.
Techland have announced a Global Playtest closed event for Dying Light: Bad Blood which PC players can sign up for here.
“Our aim is both to satisfy players
Next year, many of the most famous and well-known movie franchises of our times will celebrate their thirtieth anniversaries. Some of these will be marked by remakes hitting the screens, either in the cinemas or through other mediums, such as video games,
It’s a slick piece of art, all things considered, which only makes it all the more unfortunate that this seems to be yet another pointless remake. Perhaps if it was made with a reason, like bringing George A. Romero’s original script to life, which was cut for budgetary reasons in the 80s, I could understand the need for this project to exist. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Instead, this is the third or so interpretation of the 1985 classic,

Day of the Dead: Bloodline will hit theaters, VOD and Digital HD on January 5th.
A reimagining of George A. Romero’s cult classic, Day of the Dead: Bloodline stars Johnathon Schaech (“Legends of Tomorrow,” Prom Night), Sophie Skelton (Starz's "Outlander," 211), Marcus Vanco ("The Shannara Chronicles," Unbroken) and Jeff Gum (The Forgiven, Primal).
The film was directed by Hèctor Hernández Vicens (The Corpse of Anna Fritz) and was written by Mark Tonderai (House at the End of the Street, Hush) and Lars Jacobson (Baby Blues).
Day of the Dead: Bloodline looks like it will take the very basic premise of the original, but it's going to add a lot of its own flare. We have some of the imagery needed to call it Day of the Dead. There's an underground bunker, plenty of zombies and Bub. A new version of Bub, but Bub the zombie is still here.

Day of the Dead: Bloodline, director Hèctor Hernández Vicens’ remake of George A. Romero’s 1985 classic Day of the Dead, is quickly approaching and the marketing machine is now starting to kick into gear.
Yesterday, we got to see some awesome new images from the film and today, IGN has the full trailer to show off (check it out down below). It introduces Max, the movie’s version of Bub who’s supposed to be part human and part zombie, while we’re also treated to plenty of gory violence. Which means hopefully we’ll be getting some neat new zombie effects, even if they’re not the work of Tom Savini.
It’s still a bit too early to make the call on how this one will turn out,

As you can see in the gallery below, one of the new images shows a rotten, stitched-up corpse rising up from an autopsy table, while we also have a look at a zombie with a very gaunt, skull-like appearance, and two human characters. Nothing here is terribly revealing, but it’s still nice to get another glimpse of the pic as many are curious to see how it’ll stack up to the film it’s remaking.
Day Of The Dead: Bloodline Gets Three
Well, now we have our answer, as Dark Sky Films’ official Twitter account has announced that Victor Crowley will be with us in 2018, and they even promised that further release info and poster art will be here soon. Unfortunately, they didn’t give us anything more than that, but it’s definitely nice to know that those who haven’t yet seen Green’s latest effort will be able to do so next year.
If you’re unfamiliar with Victor Crowley, the plot synopsis reads as follows:
Hi Tony, thank you for joining me again today I appreciate you taking the time out to talk to me again. You are following up the critical success of Cute Little Buggers with your new film Dawning of the Dead. Why did you decide to make a zombie film?
We were working out way through the horror genres. We always said that we would make these films with the attitude that we would have fun making them. So, after doing a slasher with Dead Time, we then wanted to do a creature feature which we did
She’s a fabulous scream queen you may recognize from the works of John Carpenter like Escape From New York and The Fog, while she also played a role in George Romero’s Creepshow. But according to Barbeau, who recently spoke with Tom Holland’s Terror Time, she wasn’t too interested in taking on The Devil’s Rejects.
“I’ve turned down myriad roles. Sometimes after reading 20 pages of the script. And especially if
Of course, none of this would’ve been possible if George Romero didn’t pave the way back in 1968 with Night of the Living Dead. In the time since, he’d concocted several beloved sequels, each of which infused social commentary with unimaginable horror. That being said, it’s no wonder why the late director is still able to make new fans to this day.
Now, I’m not sure if there’s a record for such
