‘Dead by Daylight’ Receiving Evil Dead DLC?



With today’s Demise of the Faithful update for Behaviour Interactive’s Dead By Daylight, some fans have noticed that with a number of the new perks in the Kill Your Friends game mode, they point towards everyone’s favourite chainsaw-wielding hero possibly being in the game at some point.

Along with a new killer in Plague, a new survivor in Jane Romero, and a new map, new perks include “Mettle of Man”, “Buckle Up” and “Flip-Flop”, all of which are labelled “Ashley J. Williams Perk”. The perks themselves are rare, but any fan of the Evil Dead series knows that Ash says these as part of his one-liners throughout the series.

The perks were found in the PS4 version of the game, and appear to have been left in accidentally by the update. Behaviour Interactive hasn’t commented on any of this (yet), nor have they issued a hotfix for the PS4 version.

It wouldn’t be much of a stretch for Dead By Daylight to include Ash, since the game already has the likes of Leatherface, Freddy and Michael Myers, alongside Laurie Strode as one of the survivors.

Gillian Greene dishes on “Fanboy”, “Yankees Suck”, and how her kids became extras



Gillian Greene didn’t always think she’d be a director. Or an actor for that matter. But between her father, Lorne Greene, and husband, Sam Raimi, things took a turn — or more of a “curve ball” as she’d call it.

Greene is just getting started on the path to mainstream film success with her latest flick, “Fanboy” — about a video store employee who heads to Hollywood when he finds out his favorite director is auditioning for the film — set for release on March 22. Grit Daily spoke with Greene unpack for her own inspiration into film, and what else is brewing in her directorial cauldron.

Anchor Bay cult-film champion Jay Douglas dead at age 65



From www.syfy.com:

Jay Douglas passed away on Tuesday after suffering from a heart attack in Green Valley, Arizona, according to Deadline. While Douglas might not have been a household name, he became one of the driving forces behind the resurgence of cult films starting back in 1995.

That was the year he joined Anchor Bay Entertainment, where he spent the next 10 years defining the company's collection of obscure genre films, long-forgotten classics, and some of the most infamous horror movies ever made. Anchor Bay became renowned in genre circles for their meticulous treatment of such cinematic oddities, particularly in a pre-streaming era where movies like that weren't always easy to come by.

"Our goal is to elevate these old films and B movies — if that’s what you call them," Douglas told the New York Times back in 1998.

In many ways, it was because of Douglas' work that some of our favorites found a second life in home video — horror classics like Dawn of the Dead and The Hills Have Eyes, outsider oddities such as Repo Man, and vintage superhero epics like 1984's Supergirl. In some cases, his work helped resurrect entire careers.

"Jay and Anchor Bay were instrumental in rekindling interest in the Evil Dead movies,” Bruce Campbell told Deadline earlier today, as Anchor Bay's acquisition of the Evil Dead franchise gave the actor's career a second wind. "For that, my partners and I will always be grateful. He was fun and smart and really a special guy."
