‘Shark Tank’ Hosts to Swim With Sharks on Shark Week 2018

In an exclusive report by Entertainment Weekly, it has been learned that the hosts of ABC’s Shark Tank will finally be entering a realm where their big bucks and big mouths don’t impress anyone: in the water with some real sharks!

Hosts Mark Cuban, Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, and Daymond John will each pair up “…with an oceanic organization to receive an education in the issues facing those misunderstood predators of the sea, ranging from habitat destruction, overfishing, and bycatch. The Sharks (minus Lori Greiner) will then return to the Shark Tank set, where they will reunite with fellow Shark, Robert Herjavec, and pitch each other as to why their organization deserves a $50,000 donation. Each Shark will then cast a vote for the organization that is most deserving of the money.” read more

‘Human Centipede’ Director Tom Six Has a New Film Called ‘The Onania Club’

It’s been nine years since Tom Six first burst onto the horror scene with The Human Centipede and three years since he wrapped up his Centipede trilogy with The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence). The Dutch writer/director had released three films before the trilogy (Gay in Amsterdam, Honeyz and I Love Dries) but it was those grotesque body-horror films that thrust him into the mainstream; well, the horror fan’s mainstream anyway.

Today, IndieWire dropped the news that we should be seeing the next Tom Six film later this year. Titled The Onania Club, Mr. Six is not giving away any plot details yet but has said that, “[The Onania Club] will be one of the most vile, inhumane movie experiences of all time”; as if any of us expected any different? read more

Streaming-Only Version of ‘Resident Evil 7’ to Appear on Nintendo Switch in Japan

After launching in January of 2017 to a positive critical and fan reception, Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 is finally coming to the Nintendo Switch! But there are a couple of catches…

Variety reports that the game will come to the Nintendo Switch on May 24th, but it won’t be available on physical media, you can’t buy a digital copy of it, it can’t be played without an internet connection, and it’s only available in Japan.

Entitled Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version, the game must be played by streaming it over a high-speed internet connection. Everyone can play the first 15 minutes for free, but after that the game must be “rented” for a 180 day period for 2,000 yen (approximately $17.99 in US dollars). The Switch version will include the complete game including all of the downloadable content which was originally available on other platforms. It will also include Joy-Con support and motion controls. read more
