From the imaginative mind of Bryan Fuller (TV’s “Heroes” and “Pushing Daisies”) comes the final chapter of the smash hit series Hannibal: Season Three, keeping viewers’ spines tingling on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) December 8th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Based on the series of novels by Thomas Harris that sparked a cult following and major motion picture franchise, the deliciously dark and twisted series brings Hannibal Lecter’s chillingly genius insanity to life.
Based on the characters and elements appearing in the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, Hannibal, from Gaumont International Television (in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks), stars Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt) as the iconic Hannibal Lecter, Emmy® Award nominee Hugh Dancy (Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie, “Elizabeth I,” 2006), Gillian Anderson (TV’s “The X-Files”), and Academy Award® nominee Laurence Fishburne (Best Actor in a Leading Role, What’s Love Got to Do with It, 1993). The show co-stars Caroline Dhavernas (TV’s “Off the Map”) and guest stars Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek franchise), Gina Torres (TV’s “Suits”), Raul Esparza (TV’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), Mía Maestro (TV’s “The Strain”), Scott Thompson (TV’s “The Colbert Report”), Rutina Wesley (HBO’s “True Blood”), and Katharine Isabelle (SyFy’s “Being Human”).
Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) is on the run in Europe — accompanied by his psychiatrist, Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) — sporting a new identity, but servicing the same insatiable appetite. As the lives of Will (Hugh Dancy) and Jack (Laurence Fishburne) converge toward Hannibal again, each with their own motivations to catch him once and for all, their deadly dance turns in startling and unexpected ways.
Hannibal: Season Three contains all 13 episodes and is loaded with special features that include select episode audio commentaries with the cast and crew, behind-the-scenes featurettes, webisodes, deleted scenes, and a gag reel. The Hannibal: Season Three Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $24.98, respectively.

Independent developer C3SK and noted survivalist game label Devolver Digital have announced that the anticipated online multiplayer survival horror thriller Noct is set to release on PC, Mac, and Linux on October 22. Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck and musician Worldclock have scored Noct’s evocative soundtrack and fans can grab a free track from the coming 12-track soundtrack now at noctgame.com.
Noct is a 2D top-down multiplayer survival horror game that blends arcade combat with RPG survival elements. You are a survivor of the apocalyptic purge that formed the desolate wasteland now known as Noct and your experience in this catastrophic new world is viewed through a thermal image satellite system high above the Earth. Players will be tasked with exploring a hostile wasteland alone or with other survivors they run into online to uncover the mysterious downfall of their world or clash with one another over food, ammunition, and safety from the unfathomable dangers lurking in the perpetual night.
“I was invited into the world of Noct to compliment the established work of Wordclock, and to collaborate, bringing a spirited sense of melody and hope to an utterly devastated terrain, one enshrouded in despair and haunted by….creepy fucking monsters,” said Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck. “It has been a hair raising experience, cooperating to design the immersion of this audio trek. The team are each scrupulous creatures and together we enjoy turning over many stones.”
Noct will be playable at this weekend’s Twitchcon in San Francisco prior to its launch on PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam. For more information on Noct fans can visit noctgame.com and follow @NoctGame on Twitter. Probably worth buying some backup underwear before the game launches.
The game is 2d, next-gen and a unique 3rd person point & click psychological horror adventure. The main aim is to reflect the real characteristic of a player through the game and see how far players would push their limits. Game is +18 and has disturbing gore, sex and intense violence scenes.
You awake in a hospital room, handcuffed to a bed. You hear some detectives speaking about you. They’re surprised you’re still alive after a terrifying event and say that it would’ve been better if they had caught you dead. You don’t understand and don’t remember much but to learn first you need to escape.
The first question that comes to mind is: are you guilty? But it’s much more beyond the guiltiness or guiltless. You have been given a chance to face your past, to see how far you would go and to see if you’d sacrifice from yourself to enlighten the darkness and fight with your demons.
The Dark Inside Me gameplay builds upon the decisions and sacrifices between the user and the events. Puzzles in the game may be solved more than one way, and each way will lead you to different scenarios. Will you kill someone that’s stopping you by finding a tool to use or you will find a way to pass him or her without killing? And if you don’t kill, then that person could help you later in the game to solve a puzzle or can kill you or and make the things harder for you. When the time comes for the vengeance, you will decide to forgive or no. Will you torture or kill or let him or her go?
The game is very synchronized with the amazing sounds effects and music. It will take you into the game and make you feel that you are the part of it. Even though the game is a point & click adventure, there will be some action and scenes including torture, fighting and sex.

They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re all together ooky, The Addams Family! These immortal lyrics, first penned by composer Vic Mizzy in 1964, are indelibly etched in the psyche of America and of pop culture fans the world over, and rightfully so. Although the series, like it’s popular counterpart The Munsters, lasted only two seasons from 1964 to 1966, it has remained in syndication and at the forefront of popular culture for over 50 years, spawning an animated series, two feature films, several books, toys, video games and a dizzying array of merchandise for kids of all ages.
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the beloved series, Spacelab9 invites all to once again visit the family at 0001 Cemetery Lane for a long-awaited musical trip down memory lane with the release of “THE ADDAMS FAMILY: ORIGINAL MUSIC FROM THE ADDAMS FAMILY” 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION LP, which will hit store shelves on October 16th 2015. Out of print for nearly 30 years, “THE ADDAMS FAMILY: ORIGINAL MUSIC FROM THE ADDAMS FAMILY” LP has been painstakingly remastered and packaged in a full color jacket with a full color 12” x 24” double-sided insert featuring rare photos as well as extensive liner notes chronicling the history of the iconic television series. Inexplicably omitted from the original 1965 soundtrack album, the essential vocal version of The Addams Family series’ theme song has been added as a bonus track.
This deluxe limited vinyl edition will be released in three colored vinyl variants, each available exclusively from different retailers throughout the holiday season. Variants include a Glow-In-the-Dark Vinyl “Fester’s Lightbulb” edition only available from Barnes & Noble, a “Cousin Itt” Brown Vinyl edition exclusively from Hastings, and a “Lurch” Green Vinyl edition exclusive to Newbury Comics. A fourth, very small edition of “Black Pumpkin” splatter vinyl will be available exclusively from the Spacelab9 booth at New York Comic Con from October 8th – 11th. Collect ‘em all!
XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that Corpse Party: Blood Drive, the final entry in the “Heavenly Host Elementary” chapter of the Corpse Party visual novel-style horror adventure series, will arrive in North America exclusively for the PlayStation® Vita handheld entertainment system on October 13 th.

The final installment of the supernatural story that began with Corpse Party and continued in Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, Corpse Party: Blood Drive ups the ante by allowing players to explore Heavenly Host Elementary in full 3D for the first time, with all of its formerly 2D environments meticulously recreated and greatly expanded. New gameplay systems provide more exciting interactions for players experiencing the gruesome finale to this tale of an inescapable, otherworldly school populated by vengeful spirits, including a dynamic lighting system aided by an in-game flashlight, talismans to protect the player characters from danger, deadly traps to disarm, cabinets to hide in, a stamina system that allows for limited dashing, and much more.
Furthermore, Blood Drive – once again presented with the original Japanese voiceovers for authenticity – features the return of previously offered gameplay elements such as binaural 3D audio for simulated surround sound and the screen-altering “Darkening” system, as well as bonus unlockables such as voice actor interviews, art, music, and more. Boasting 11 huge story chapters and 8 supplemental “Extra Chapters,” Corpse Party: Blood Drive caps off the Heavenly Host storyline in a big way, providing answers and shocking twists in equal measure.

Five cops, working the graveyard shift in the middle of nowhere are dispatched to investigate a disturbance. Isolated and without back up they find themselves confronting a labyrinthine ruin. Pushing ever further into the depths of the lair, it becomes clear they have stumbled into the darkest pits of a terrible evil. A squalid and blood-soaked den of ritual led by The Father – the master of all their nightmares – who will plunge them ever deeper down the rabbit hole and into the very mouth of madness.
The deal was brokered by Nate Bolotin from XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers and by Arianna Bocco for IFC.
