Dark, Undying Love

NEW GAME - Dark is an RPG vampire game on the way for next year.

DARK is a stealth action game with RPG elements that lets you slip into the role of the ultimate killer… a vampire. Stalk your enemies from the shadows then use powerful vampire abilities to attack and silently dispatch them! The exciting story of DARK immerses you in a world full of blood and darkness in which the hunter can become the hunted at any time.   As you unravel the mystery behind the omnipresent and powerful global conglomerate, Geoforge, you must continually improve your character by developing powerful skills to aid you in remaining unobserved, or silence those unfortunate enough to take too keen an interest in you.

NEW FILM - Undying Love is a new one on the way from Warner bros. Joe Carnahan has been named as director.

Described as “equal parts vampire mythology and Chinese folklore,” Undying Loveunfolds in modern-day Hong Kong. Former military man John Sargent falls in love with a beautiful woman named Mei, who just so happens to be a vampire. In order for the lovers to be together, Sargent must face off against her creator. Unfortunately, he’s one of the most powerful vampires of all time, and is protected by an army of mobsters.

NEW FILM NEWS - Dracula : The Dark Prince

NEW FILM NEWS - Beautiful Evil.

Beautiful Evil revolves around a celebrity photographer, Steve "Flash" Turner, who discovers that a wealthy, beautiful baroness - someone he'd do anything to get on film - might be a homicidal monster.
Veteran actor Robert Loggia (Scarface, TV's "The Sopranos"), Yasmine Bleeth (TV's "Baywatch"), and Gary Daniels (The Expendables, Tekken) will headline the Hollywood Hills-set creature feature announced at AFM this week. Genre vets Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Jr (Dracula 3000), Christopher Showerman (The Land That Time Forgot), Tim Thomerson (Trancers), and Andrew Lawrence (TV's "Bones") have supporting roles in the film; Beautiful Evil is written by BJ and Julia Davis and directed by Asif Akbar.

Get a taste of immortality in Beautiful Evil as the Hollywood Hills are littered with the bodies of Sunset Strip prostitutes. The ladies of the night are decapitated; no remnants or traces of blood remain in their lifeless bodies. The LAPD are perplexed, and Steve “Flash" Turner, a down and out paparazzi photographer, is hoping his luck is about to change when he captures Beverly Hills socialite Baroness Von Siepold at a star-studded event. Flash gets the shot, but the image of the Baroness does not transfer to the digital picture. No one will believe this sure-shot photographer missed a photo op as the body count continues to rise when the sun sets.

NEW COMIC NEWS - 30 Days of Night has a new crossover series coming out, details are here.

NEW CLIP - Dread Central has a new clip of the next Vampire Diaries episode here.
