‘Braid’ Poster Shows the Demons In a Friendship [Exclusive]

“Everyone Plays. Nobody Leaves.”

Mitzi Peirone‘s psycho-horror Braid, a mindfuck of a movie about two wanted women who decide to rob their wealthy psychotic friend who lives in the fantasy world they created as children, will arrive in limited theaters and on VOD platforms February 1, 2019, via Blue Fox Entertainment, Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned.

We also got our hands on the official poster debut from the film starring Madeline Brewer, Imogen Waterhouse, and Sarah Hay, who in order to take the money, have to take part in a deadly perverse game of make-believe.

“Two wanted women decide to rob their wealthy yet mentally unstable friend who lives in a fantasy world they all created as children. To take her money, the girls must take part in a deadly and perverse game of make believe throughout a sprawling yet decaying estate. As things become increasingly violent and hallucinatory, they realize that obtaining the money may be the least of their concerns.”

Emily von Steele reviewed the film calling it “a hypnotic tale of horror and make-believe.”

Netflix’s Docuseries ‘The Innocent Man’ Focuses On Murders In Oklahoma

In a story that gained national attention with John Grisham’s best-selling non-fiction book, “The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town”, the six-part documentary series The Innocent Man focuses on two murders that shook the small town of Ada, Oklahoma, in the 1980s — and the controversial chain of events that followed.

“The documentary series of The Innocent Man is gripping, compelling, and ultimately just as heartbreaking as the book,” said Grisham.

Directed by Clay Tweel (Finders Keepers, Gleason, Out of Omaha), The Innocent Man includes interviews with victims’ friends and families, Ada residents, attorneys, journalists, and others involved in the cases. (Grisham appears, as does attorney Barry Scheck, co-director of the Innocence Project.) Developed as a documentary series by Tweel and Ross Dinerstein, it blends new footage with compelling archival video and photos. The series is produced by Maura Anderson and Shannon Riggs. Executive producers are John Grisham, David Gernert, Tweel and Dinerstein.

The Innocent Man streams December 14th.

In the film directed by Diederik Van Rooijen and penned by Brian Sieve (Boogeyman 2):

“A shocking exorcism spirals out of control, claiming the life of a young woman. Months later, Megan Reed (Shay Mitchell) is working the graveyard shift in the morgue when she takes delivery of a disfigured cadaver. Locked alone inside the basement corridors, Megan begins to experience horrifying visions and starts to suspect that the body may be possessed by a ruthless demonic force.”

“Pretty Little Liars’” Shay Mitchell stars with Grey Damon, Kirby Johnson and Stana Katic.

These Chinese ‘Venom’ Posters Are Incredible

Venom is still becoming one with international audiences and these new Chinese one-sheets are phenomenal pieces of art (via IMP Awards) that perfectly represent the film’s symbiotes played by Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed.

In the film:

“One of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters takes center stage as Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) becomes the host for the alien symbiote Venom. As a journalist, Eddie has been trying to take down the notorious founder of the Life Foundation, genius Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) – and that obsession ruined his career and his relationship with his girlfriend, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams). Upon investigating one of Drake’s experiments, the alien Venom merges with Eddie’s body, and he suddenly has incredible new superpowers, as well as the chance to do just about whatever he wants. Twisted, dark, unpredictable, and fueled by rage, Venom leaves Eddie wrestling to control dangerous abilities that he also finds empowering and intoxicating. As Eddie and Venom need each other to get what they’re looking for, they become more and more intertwined – where does Eddie end and Venom begin?”

Room 237 Haunts Mondo’s ‘The Shining’ Poster [Exclusive]

Mondo Gallery today announced their next collaboration with artist Laurent Durieux, with Bloody Disgusting receiving an exclusive look at his The Shining piece. At first glance, it just looks like Durieux’s rendition of Danny Torrance riding his bike down one of the Overlook Hotel’s massive halls. Upon further investigation, you’ll see that the back of his little bike has been transformed into a door… the gateway to room 237!

The opening reception, free and open to the public, will be held on Friday, November 9 from 7:00 – 10:00pm at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX (4115 Guadalupe St). The show will run through Saturday, November 17.

“I’m pretty sure people are expecting me to raise the bar a little higher than for my first 2014 solo exhibition at Mondo,” Durieux stated. “I don’t know if I succeeded in doing that but I did my very best to hopefully meet those expectations. Cherry on top, I also had the immense honor to have been able to work on some of the best properties in popular culture, some of which have only been made available for me, which is not only very humbling but also an amazing sign of confidence in my artistry. I truly can’t wait for everyone to see this 7 months labor of love.”

Laurent Durieux is a celebrated illustrator and graphic artist from Brussels, who is responsible for some of Mondo’s most memorable works of pop art, including a 2013 poster of Jaws, which also caught the eye of Steven Spielberg. His unique style is immediately recognizable and spans both classics and modern cinema alike.
