Man of Medan: Happy Halloween Trailer

Where there is no imagination there is no horror.

Man of Medan BannerBANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe has released a Halloween trailer for the upcoming horror game Man of Medan, revealing the enigmatic and mysterious character of the Curator.

The Curator, an omniscient voyeur of our protagonists’ progress and choices, will be played by British actor Pip Torrens (The Crown and Preacher). He joins the previously revealed all-star cast of Man of Medan, which includes Shawn Ashmore (X-Men) as Conrad. Although, unlike the ever changing cast of each story in the anthology, the Curator will be an ever-present part of each chilling experience.

The Curator is a figure beyond time, chronicling stories of both life and death in his own private compendium as part of a vast repository, containing every story ever told. He’s been doing it for thousands of years, he supposes, but he can’t remember when he started, or whether there was ever a beginning to what he does.

But now, for reasons that he can’t quite understand, he’s been given the opportunity to talk to somebody. To you, The Player.

He knows that there are ‘rules’ with being an observer. He’s not supposed to interfere, but he’s excited, and can get a little carried away. He has seen things that the player has probably missed. Important things. But he’s not permitted to tell them what these things are, not directly that is. So, he drops hints where he feels he can, in the hope that the player will recognise his brilliance in hindsight. But don’t expect him to be straightforward. His hints can be somewhat ambiguous and cryptic.

“We were absolutely thrilled by the response to the announcement of The Dark Pictures in August, and we’re delighted to introduce an important character today that will be present throughout The Dark Pictures Anthology, The Curator.” said Pete Samuels, Executive Producer for The Dark Pictures Anthology, at Supermassive Games. “Voiced by Pip Torrens, you’ll see him for the very first time in our Man of Medan Halloween Trailer and he acts as a guide for the players to navigate their stories.”

As a general rule, I don’t like sex in cinema. Not in a prudish way, but typically a prolonged bout of bedroom billiards strikes me as a sign of a bad movie. Likewise, I’ve no issue with cinematic nudity if it’s in context, but a long lingering look at a starlet having a shower is, again...
