This is the Actor Who Plays the Night King on Game of Thrones

  • BuzzSugar
The Night King on Game of Thrones is arguably the scariest villain the show has had, at least in the sense that he's Death personified . . . and the foe that seems to want to end all of mankind. He doesn't speak, he's insanely powerful, he's able to conjure up a new army in seconds if he needs to, and oh yes, he looks like a scary-ass horned blue assh*le. The Night King's makeup is terrifying (well, except for in this video), so we thought we needed to revisit the actor who plays him in real life. The Night King is played by Vladimír Furdík, a stuntman who has also appeared in The Huntsman: Winter's War and Thor: The Dark World as a stunt performer. You have also seen him on the show before in the season six scene where Bran learns how White Walkers are made. He's the shirtless dude

‘Game of Thrones’: Who Is the Night King? Does It Even Matter?

  • Collider.com
The White Walkers have always been the Big Bad of Game of Thrones. They were teased in the very first scene of the series, and their presence has been beefed up over the years as a constant reminder of an oncoming threat that could destroy all of Westeros. While the White Walkers don’t seem to have any politics or beliefs beyond killing anything that gets in their way, they do have an organizational structure where wights (reanimated corpses) follow White Walkers and the White Walkers follow the Night King (played by Richard Brake in Seasons 4 and 5 and …

When it was all said and done, Josh Hasty emerged from Murderworld with over 500 hours of footage documenting the making of Rob Zombie's new movie, 31. Titled In Hell Everybody Loves Popcorn: The Making of 31, Hasty's immersive documentary is now available to view as both a two-hour bonus feature on Lionsgate's Blu-ray / DVD release of 31 and as a four-hour version on VOD, and we caught up with the filmmaker for our latest Q&A feature to discuss what it was like being a fly on the wall with a camera to capture Zombie's new cinematic creation.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Josh. How did you initially get involved with Rob Zombie’s 31?

First Trailer for Historical Film 'Bitter Harvest' About The Holodomor

"How many lives is this war worth?!" Roadside Attractions has debuted an official trailer for a sweeping historical drama titled Bitter Harvest, set during "The Holodomor" in Ukraine in between the first and second World War. The "Holodomor" was a genocidal famine engineered by Joseph Stalin, as an effort to stop the Ukrainian independence movement, resulting in the deaths of millions of people. The film tells the story of a romance between a young Ukrainian couple torn apart by the starvation. Max Irons stars, along with Samantha Barks as his lover, also including Terence Stamp, Barry Pepper, Richard Brake, Aneurin Barnard, Tom Austen, Tamer Hassan and Lucy Brown. This looks okay, but it's hard to tell with this trailer. There's too much going on and the director isn't that impressive, it might not be any good.

31 Hits DVD/Bluray/Digital HD This December; Comes With Four hour Documentary

Rob Zombie’s latest film, 31, has had the effect most of his films tend to have: a pretty divisive one. Personally, I Loved the film (review) and think it’s one of the most entertaining horror films in a long, long time. It’s unique, it’s fun and it’s brutal as hell. Zombie created a true horror icon in the making with Doom Head (Richard Brake) and the film is full of excellent performances.

The film, along with its two (on the Bluray) And four hour making of documentaries (the four hour doc is an exclusive to the Digital HD copy) , are hitting DVD/Bluray/Digital HD on December 20th, via Lionsgate. We’ll definitely be checking this one out and even as divisive as Zombie’s films tend to be, his making of’s are always epic. Will you be picking this one up?

'31' Movie Review

by Jonathan Weichsel

31 is written and directed by Rob Zombie. The film stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Meg Foster, Kevin Jackson, Malcolm McDowell, Jane Carr, Judy Geeson, Richard Brake, Pancho Moler, David Ury, Lew Temple, Torsten Voges, Elizabeth Daily and Michael "Red Bone" Alcott.

Rob Zombie is one of the most divisive directors of the twenty-first century. Either you love his movies, or you hate them, and the qualities that his fans love about his films, the stylized grittiness, the edgy, eccentric personality of the director which shines through all of his work,

Rob Zombie Q&A: The ’31’ Director on America’s Clown Obsession, ‘Stranger Things,’ and John Carpenter’s Friendship

Rob Zombie Q&A: The ’31’ Director on America’s Clown Obsession, ‘Stranger Things,’ and John Carpenter’s Friendship
No one is more dedicated to scaring you than Rob Zombie. With his penchant for slimy, grimy, and bloody grindhouse fare (his most recent album is “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser”), the writer-director has returned to his roots with his seventh film, “31,” which follows a band of misfit carnies who are kidnapped and forced to play a deadly game on Halloween. IndieWire recently spoke with Rob about his role in the independent horror world, crowdfunding, and what 2016 movies he might be watching on Halloween.

I was really struck by how rich the film looked, and this was your first feature done via crowdfunding. Could you tell me a bit about how this process was unique for you, and how you were able to stretch your dollar on screen?

Well, it was partially crowdfunded. I wish it was 100% crowdfunded, but that just wasn’t possible. But the crowdfunding was very helpful.

’31′ Review

Stars: Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcolm MacDowell, Pancho Moler, Lew Temple, E.G. Daily, Richard Brake, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Meg Foster, Kevin Jackson, Jane Carr, Judy Geeson | Written and Directed by Rob Zombie

When it comes to Rob Zombie as a filmmaker I’ll admit I have something of a soft spot for his work. He knows his horror and never bows down for the constant calls to conform to the politically correct society that seems to dominate the entertainment world now. With the release of 31, the question is, has he managed to pull off another The Devil’s Rejects or is this more of a Halloween 2?

The first thing you’ll notice with the story of 31 is that it is in very familiar territory. A group of carnival employees (including of course Sheri Moon Zombie) are travelling cross-country on Halloween. They are soon kidnapped and are entered into

Film Review: 31

  • CineVue
★★★★☆ "Shall we do this Whitechapel-style, then?" Doom-Head (Richard Brake) asks, rhetorically, to final girl Charly (Sheri Moon Zombie), in the penultimate scene of 31, the latest offering from Rob Zombie, a director whose films are the very definition of marmite cinema. Some might find Doom-Head's line dripping in misogyny - given he is about ready to carve up an unarmed and thoroughly exhausted Charly - but that would be a misinterpretation. The dialogue is more self-reflective, perhaps to be taken as a horror filmmaker's cri de gore. It's also an aesthetic philosophy harking back not only to Jack the Ripper's most infamously brutal murders, but to Thomas De Quincey's observation that murder is art.

31 review – swastikas, chainsaws and psychopaths: a cinematic Jägerbomb

Rob Zombie’s zombie slasher exudes efficient self-assurance as a troupe of carnival workers become fodder in Malcolm McDowell’s bloodsport

Weirdly specific about the year his eighth feature takes place – 1976 – perhaps Rob Zombie is hoping some of early-slasher grit of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes will stick to him. He wishes: other than the minivan full of cavorting, toking, sideburned carnival workers abducted on Halloween to become fodder in a bloodsport conducted by Malcolm McDowell’s braying aristo, there’s nothing to date 31 to any period other than “time to die”. The handheld profligacy of the camerawork covers for a total vacuum of character motivation, history, or anything else to help the audience situate themselves. But, as the swastika-daubed Latino dwarves and chainsaw-wielding redneck clowns pile in, 31 exudes a self-assurance that takes hold anyway. Richard Brake’s leering psychopath Doom-Head, prone to Tarantino-esque soliloquys before burying the hatchet,
