‘The Callisto Protocol’ Receives Six-Months of Season Pass Content
The Callisto Protocol has finally dropped and a lot of us have been enjoying the cold depths of hell and fighting off a terrifying new breed of villainous goodies. Of course, that also means that a lot of us blew right through the game with quickness. So, it may have left some of us wondering where a New Game+ was at. Luckily, the DLC coming out in February includes New Game+ as well as a hardcore mode. Rejoice!
This first bit of content is titled the Outer Way Skin Collection. This kicks off six months of DLC which should have a lot of us continuing our deep space journey. There will be a few ancillary bits of DLC that include things like new death animations and a permadeath mode.
The biggie arrives Summer 2023 with actual new story elements. We can’t wait to see where that story DLC takes us.
The synopsis for The Callisto Protocol goes like this:
It was directed by Glen Schofield, who had previously co-created the Dead Space series. The game’s story follows Jacob Lee (Josh Duhamel) who is sent to a prison facility set on the Jovian moon Callisto fighting against infected prisoners with an unknown disease while uncovering dark secrets of the facility.
The Callisto Protocol DLC begins its roll-out February 7.
‘Bambi: The Reckoning’ is Putting the Blood, Guts and Horror in the Classic
Director, Rhys Frake-Waterfield is on a warpath on childhood films. We have been seeing a trend of certain films like Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan, and The Grinch get horror takes on them. Next up for the director, he has set Bambi in his sights. According to Dread Central Waterfield’s future project is Bambi: The Reckoning. He will act as a producer on this one with Scott Jeffrey directing.
Recently, Quentin Tarantino called Bambi one of the most terrifying movies made. He has a point. Disney’s original cartoon is seriously a traumatizing experience. It will be interesting to see what Waterfield does with his take. It would be great to see Bambi and her mom be able to get some revenge.
The synopsis for Disney’s original Bambi film went like this:
In this Disney classic a young deer named Bambi joins his new friends, a rabbit named Thumper and a skunk named Flower, in exploring his forest home. As a boy, he learns from his doting mother and his father, The Great Prince of the Forest, that there are dangers in the open meadows where hunters can spot the animals, and he meets a beautiful young doe named Faline. As Bambi grows up, he learns that there is tragedy as well as beauty and joy in his forest world and on the path to adulthood.
“The film will be an incredibly dark re-telling of the 1928 story we all know and love.” Jeffrey told Dread Central. “Finding inspiration from the design used in Netflix’s The Ritual, Bambi will be a vicious killing machine that lurks in the wilderness. Prepare for Bambi on rabies!”
Are you ready for a horror take on Bambi? We will be sure to keep you updated.

Jenna Ortega and Wednesday have taken the holiday world by storm.
