Creepy October: Bedfellows

If you’ve not heard of Drew Daywalt (IMDB link), odds are you’re not familiar with an amazing, prolific art form: short horror. YouTube abounds with short films that cram as much scare into between two and fifteen minutes as most feature-length triple-A, big budget horror films.

Daywalt’s Bedfellows is acknowledged as a masterwork of storytelling, atmosphere, and creep. It clocks in at just over 2 minutes, but boy, what an intense two minutes! There’s no gore, just pure atmos…fear.

If you enjoy this, there’s a whole stack more over at Drew’s short film channels, Fewdiodotcom and Daywalt Fear Factory.

Ferrari California T Gets Glow-In-The-Dark Paint Job

It’s hard to miss the eye-catching art of Fabian Oefner. In his State of the Art project, Ferrari’s new 2-door grand tourer the California T is the subject of Oefner’s attention. It’s also the canvas.

Oefner placed the California T in a wind tunnel and sprayed UV light–reactive paint over the car. Travelling at over 150 miles per hour, the paint glowed and streaked across the California T’s svelte body. Have a look at the colourful results after the jump.

We Review: Comic Workshop (Nintendo 3DS)

This is going to be a bit of an unusual review: since I’m reviewing an art application for the Nintendo 3DS, I decided to put the app to good use and create the majority of the review in the app. What you see has not been altered in any way outside the app, so you’re getting a decent representation of its use. Because of the nature of the review, I’ve provided some extra screenshots of the app itself afterwards (obviously, official screenshot artwork isn’t mine!) Enjoy! Continue Reading →

We Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U)

Bayonetta, the insane, leggy witch with more attitude than a high school full of sassy teens, is back. With more sass. More insanity. And more leg (probably). The first game (reviewed here) was a cornucopia of bullets and blood, and this time, Bayonetta 2 promises more of the same, just with …well…more. I grab my guns and go to hell to bring you this review. Continue Reading →

Creepy October: 10 Movies not to Watch Alone

Part of the ritual of growing up is watching horror movies together as a group of teenagers. The shared experience mitigates the fright somewhat, and makes it more tolerable. Some of those films you can even watch when you’re alone. And then there are some films that you really shouldn’t watch when you’re alone. Especially if you’re of a nervous bent. In which case, why are you watching scary movies alone, again? Get the popcorn, and I’ll run down some creepy films you have to rope others into watching with you (in no particular order–randomness can be just as creepy as the expected scares). Obviously, fright is a subjective term; some might find this list a little tame, others a “keep away” notice. If you’ve seen these, or have other recommendations, let us know in the comments below! The list after the jump-scare. Continue Reading →

We Review: Teslagrad (Wii U)

Teslagrad is one of the latest in a wave of beautifully illustrated, beautifully programmed indie 2D games that we lucky gamers have a chance to experience. The game has seen some success on the PC, and now we have the Wii U version. I take the power into my own hands to see how electrifying the game can be.

[Update: Word from the developers (see comment below) is that Wii U Pro Controller support is coming in a patch, so that’s something to look out for!] Continue Reading →

Creepy October: Haunted House Girl

So, it being October, the month of Halloween and haunting and horror and other things that begin with “h”, we think it’d be good to get you into the mood by posting some creepy videos and stories from around the web. And by “web”, we probably mean “YouTube”. Nothing better than a nice, creepy video, right?

So without ado (or context), here’s your first vid, and we’re keeping it low for the initial scares. A creepy ghost girl. Possibly probably faked, but still effectively mildly creepy.

We Review: Super Smash Bros. (3DS)

Of all the highly anticipated titles this year, Super Smash Bros. has got to be somewhere near the top of the list. For the uninitiated, it’s a sprawling beat-em-up featuring a host of Nintendo’s greatest and toughest characters (and a few borrowed from …here and there, amongst other places). It’s a fabulous roster of fighting, and the 3DS version is upon us. I put on my fighting words and take the knocks to bring you this *knockout* review.
