NARR8 - Bringing horror fiction to your smart device "soon"

NAAR8 describes itself as a "free, interactive series" that is "coming soon" to the App store. It's going to be a combination of interactive stories, articles and motion comics. It's hard to tell if it's going to be something worth checking out, but if it's truly free, and the trailer below is at all indicative of quality, it's at least worth a look. Also, holy cow that's a cool website (load it and scroll down). Stop judging me, I like shiny things...

Horror Headlines: Thursday April 7th, 2011

Get excited iApple iNerds! Ghost House has joined forces with Trigger Apps to develop a handy dandy "Evil Dead" shooter game for the iPhone and iPad. They follow the path of the first film and then branch off into a whole new storyline. It'll also come with Bryce Campbell's home phone number. Alright that might be a lie.

The advertising hot dogs behind the upcoming film "Priest" have jumped in to launch an online game for the film. The game can be played in both 2D and 3D, if you can find some glasses, and for those of you that are hammed right now it can even be played in 6D. Because you see double sometimes when you're drunk. Get it? It was either that or a "play with yourself" joke so consider yourselves lucky.

I'm a firm believer that if dogs have the opportunity they will turn on us and make us their slaves. For that reason it's pretty obvious that all dogs should be put in cages and treated like deadly criminals. Apparently though the makers of the new short film "Play Dead", which has a trailer and poster out on the tubes, think when the zombies take over "man's best friend" will be our only allies. Adorable idea, but completely inaccurate.

William Fichtner, who I'm 99% sure is a robot, is all ready to join the cast of Neill Blomkamp's new sci-fi flick "Elysium". The movie also stars Jodie Foster and Matt Damon or as I like to call them Fostermon. I don't think they're dating or anything but it's fun to make up names for people isn't it?

In Real People News: 

It's unfortunate that with all the fussin and fightin in the world you can't even spank a kid who gets out of line anymore. But god bless these cops in Colorado who took things to a whole new level by using pepper spray on a second grader who got a little to out of line. Did someone yell "In 'yo face!" when he got hit? Man I hope so.

An NYC official is asking for $1.5 million to deal with the rat problem that he says is effecting tourism in the Big Apple. Honestly I come into the city every day to go to work and the pit in my stomach has nothing to with the rats and everything to do with being so close to "Mama Mia" on Broadway. I can't be the only one.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday December 28th, 2010

Here's a gang of new shots from Anthony Hopkins' new film "The Rite" which comes out on January 28th. The film revolves around a skeptical student at an exorcism school and features the most disappointing panty raid you've ever seen.

Now sit down kids and I'll tell you about how video games used to be played on the PC and were mostly just a lot of pointing and clicking. And by far my favorite of the genre was "7th Guest" which will be landing on your iPhone and iPad in the near future. Of course I never saw a reason to have an iPad until now and I refuse to pay for one just to play a 20 year old game, but still, this is awesome news.

Joe R. Lansdale, the guy who wrote "Bubba Ho Tep" among other things, will see his heartwarming zombie story "Christmas with the Dead" made into a movie sometime next year. Yet more proof that if you wait long enough you'll never have to read another book again.

Here's a trailer for the Swedish ax murderer flick "Blood Runs Cold". Apparently the film was shot on a budget of just 5k, but honestly it looks so good you can hardly tell. Which is a bummer because I wanted nothing more in this world than to make some sarcastic comments about the Swedes. You win this round!

In Real People News: 

A man in San Diego is under arrest after he barged into his father's room and attacked him with a samurai sword. There is absolutely no reason anyone should be allowed to own a samurai sword. If you have one sitting on your mantel then you're really just waiting for a friend to get drunk and stab you, and guess what, you'll deserve it.

Now this is more like it. A drunk teen in Connecticut is being brought up on charges after assaulting her father with a Christmas Tree. Mean? Yes, but check out the picture of her and tell me you haven't fallen in love with her hair. Tell me! That's right I didn't think so.
