You might recall 2011’s thrilling Insane Office Escape. Biting Elbows are back with another adrenaline-pumping escape sequence in the aptly titled, Bad Motherfucker.
Shot in a similar FPS style, the continuation of Insane Office Escape sees our lethal combatant in the hands of his Russian captors. They have the device and it’s up to our man to retrieve it by any means necessary. Cue bloody hand-to-hand combat, frantic parkour chases, and even a trip to the mountains. Check out Bad Motherfucker below but be warned, it is extremely violent.
You’ll remember The Prodigy’s single Smack My Bitch Up caused some controversy. First was the change in the CD cover, which initially showed a VW Beetle wrapped around a tree. However, the death of Diana, Princess of Wales in a car accident earlier that year hastened a change to the artwork that we recognize today. And there was the music video that was widely criticised for its violent tendencies and banned on some television networks.
The band played it down, saying that the song was all about “doing anything intensely”. Which brings us to this rather appropriate parody. While cats may look innocent in our company, we all know that they can be downright evil the moment our backs are turned. In this mashup by YouTube user TheCube95, a cat is outfitted with a GoPro camera and is left to roam its surroundings. It’s not long before a pedestrian is robbed, a cyclist is attacked, and a bouncer is punched in the balls. And that’s just the start of the evening! Watch as kitty goes cray cray to the sounds of “Smack My Bitch Up”.
Shot from the first person perspective (the cool kids call it FPS), Insane Office Escape video tells story of a gentleman who turns from humdrum office worker to lethal combatant. The mystery man retrieves a special package from a safe and needs to escape an office full of co-workers who want to do him serious harm. It’s judo chops, flying kicks, and attacks with “slippery floor” signs in this adrenaline-pumping escape sequence. Check it out below.
Insane Office Escape is actually the music video for The Stampede by Biting Elbows.
If there was ever one TV series I wish would be brought back, it has to be Rome. For the two short seasons it was on for, Rome was a masterpiece to watch with the most elaborate sets and costumes, bloody violence, bared breasts, and deceit around every corner. Unfortunately, extremely high production costs doomed a fantastic series that had so much history to tell.
I had flashbacks to that beloved series when I saw the trailer to the upcoming tales about a Roman gladiator who becomes the leader of a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic. Here’s the synopsis to Spartacus: Blood and Sand.
Betrayed by his country. Beaten into slavery. Reborn as a warrior. Spartacus: Blood and Sand is a graphic and visceral account of Rome’s most famous gladiator. When he’s separated from the love of his life, Spartacus is forced into the gruesome and bloodthirsty arena, where a grisly death is primetime entertainment. Spartacus must fight for survival, befriend his enemies and play politics in this new world of corruption, violence, sex and fame. He’ll be seduced by power and tormented by vengeance. But his passion will give him the strength to prevail over every obstacle, in this modern and uninhibited tale of death, honor and endurance.
Have a look at the rollicking trailer below and let us know what you think.
Spartacus is played by Australian actor, Andy Whitfield. Lucy Lawless (Battlestar Galactica) plays Lucretia, who along with her husband Batiatus (played by John Hannah), own the slave. Spartacus: Blood and Sand is set to premiere January 22nd, 2010 in the United States, and a second season has already been confirmed. No word if/when it will get to South Africa.
This is beautifully gross. Flights through other worlds can often be whimsical, but Charlie Immer is tired of that stereotype. The worlds created by this artist and illustrator from New York are harrowingly dangerous, where the creatures in the scenes are about to meet their end in a most brutal and gory way. Danger lurks around every corner, a cautionary tale indeed.
VIDEOGIOCO is unusual and violently so. Conceived by Donato Sansone, VIDEOGIOCO combines doodling with stop-motion filming to create something quite unique, and so very odd. It has a killer ending, which also happens to be its beginning. Have a look below.
Oh my. Straight out of Nollywood comes the story of “simple” engineering student George, who falls with the wife of Hitler, a notorious gangster who rules the university campus. With tempers boiling over, the case soon becomes a flesh eaters’ affairs. Lol, wut? Have a look at the trailer.
Celine Dion, Hitler, cannibals, and cheesy sound effects. Don’t know about you, but I’m sold.
Nothing says violence quite like isometric violence. In the music video for their single “A Volta”, N.A.S.A. teams up with a whole bunch of creatives to bring out a nightmarish city scape filled with corruption, narcotics, evil bosses, dodgy henchmen, prostitutes, and piles of cash. The tune’s very catchy and unsurprisingly the video contains strong language, simulated sex, and violence, lots of it. See it below or watch it in HD at YouTube.
