Watch the New 'Dead Space 3' Launch Trailer Now!

With the release of "Dead Space 3" right around the corner, EA has released the official launch trailer for the game. Even though the music is taken from a very cheesy 80s song (you'll know it when you hear it) it's very appropriate and adds atmosphere to the eerie snow swept landscape of Tau Volantis. Check it out!

"Dead Space 3" will be in stores February 5, 2013.

Watch the Eerie Trailer for Goth UK Ghost Story 'Tick Tock Trick'

Horror of horrors in the night
I hope that I will be allright
Hello that person in my head
I will not do what you have said

This new ghost movie from Deleted Scenes Limited has a Gothic feel to it, and some great poetry to boot. It was directed by Bronwyn Edwards, who has worked on "Doctor Who," "Hex," "Torchwood," "The Dark Knight," "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," "The Wolfman" and "Inception."

From the official movie website:

A family and a group of goths spend the weekend at an English 17th Century manor house. The themed hosts charm the guests in the haunted setting. The guests desire for the paranormal and all things horror is satisfied as they expect the tricks and mystery that occur. Zuri from Nepal experiences a dark unseen presence. They all must make their choice when to leave as time ticks by.

Motion Test for 'Mama' Shows the Incredible Contortion Talents of Javiar Botet

One of the reasons why I liked the ghost of "Mama" is that the only CG used in the monster's design is the hair, which flows as though it is underwater.

Today I came across a video of the motion test of Javier Botet contorting his body quite creepily to fantastic effect. It's easy to see now why there was no need for computer graphics to be used to create the otherworldly motions of the jealous ghost. Only wires were used to help him hold his limbs at crazy angles while he moved.

Tomm Hulett Quits Konami, Silent Hill Fans Breath a Sigh of Relief

Yesterday, Rely on Horror announced that Silent Hill video game producer/developer Tomm Hulett had officially left Konami. But I don't think that he resigned. That's too nice of a word. It think that either he quit, or he was forced to quit by the company. And here's why.

'Mama' Review

"Mama" is the tale of two girls who lived in a nice house in suburbia. When the stock markets crashed, their father killed their mother and took them on a ride into the woods. They came upon an abandoned cabin, and there their father was going to kill them and then himself. But the cabin wasn't really abandoned. A ghost was there, searching for her lost infant. She saw the girl's father about to kill them, she killed him before he could harm them. She then became the girl's mother and kept them alive by feeding them cherries.

Five years later, the girl's uncle Lucas Desange, has spent his life savings looking for them. On what appears to be the last day that the hunters will go out to search of the girls, they find them. The girls are feral and have lived like animals.

When the girls are taken to live with their uncle and his girlfriend Annabel (who clearly isn't ready to have kids) Mama follows them to their new home, and shortly thereafter, the jealous ghost begins to terrorize the family in an attempt to get her girls back.

There's good news for H.P. Lovecraft fans, Guillermo del Toro has recently announced that he has not given up on his "Mountains of Madness"  movie and that he is going to start once again pitching it to studios to see if any of them will pick it up.

Two New Scary Clips from Guillermo Del Toro's 'Mama'

Once again, Guillermo del Toro brings us a a horrific version of a dark fairy tale gone wrong. "Mama" is about two girls, Victoria and Lilly, who were lost in the woods and then found and raised by SOMETHING. The girls are wild, feral children that act more like animals than human beings.When they are rescued, their closest living relative and uncle, Lucas, is asked to take care of them.

Lucas is living with Annabel, a goth base guitarist who really isn't ready to be a mother, but she soon finds herself coming to love the girls. And that's when things start to go terribly wrong.
