Hot on the heels of the news that Yam Laranas’ The Echo would be making it’s North American premiere at this year’s Fantasia, Twitch Film just got an early look at the official international sales trailer for the film, which you can check out below.
Someday, when I’m finally as rich as I deserve to be, I won’t have to make these decisions about what to focus my energy on during the month of July. This year it was a toss up between San Diego Comic Con and Fantasia and, sadly, it looks like Comic Con’s winning.
Seems that studios these days are becoming more and more wary of when and how they release their horror titles, and just how much exposure they will get when they’re out. I know our genre is supposed to scare people, but this is getting out of hand.
Having seen a good portion of Alexandre Aja's Mirrors in the editing room, I was a bit disappointed in the official trailer that just came online. It felt completely generic, like a bad Ghost House Pictures movie. As a response, the good people at Fox threw us this juicy new featurette, which is a much better representation of the nightmarish, eye-popping nature of the flick. Beware of a few brief spoilers!
This week the sequel to Recon 2022: The Caprini Massacre hit DVD, cleverly under the title of Recon 2022: The Mezzo Incident, and just to make sure you guys are aware of it walking among us, co-writer and star John Fallon dropped us an exclusive clip from the low-budget sci-fi epic, along with a slew of pics from the film.
Though it’s not due to hit DVD until the end of the year, I wanted to give some attention to another film from the Raw Feed line of direct-to-DVD horrors, if nothing else because Otis (DVD review) is out this week and we’re excited about what’s next for the label.
A few weeks back we showed you guys a brand-new poster designed by Stephen Romano (want to see your movie ideas as a poster, too?
In a story over on Twitch about the English-subtitled DVD release of L: Change the World in Hong Kong, my ocular organs ran across a full plot synopsis for the film, which I realized I had never read before. We’ve been reporting on the Death Note sequel/spin-off for months now, but never actually knew what it was about. Strange.
For those of you out there who like your horror both visual and textual, the new edition of The Nightmare Factory is going to be a graphic novel worth keeping your eyeballs peeled for. Plus, eyeballs stay fresher that way.
Anthony Hickox first mentioned a possible remake of his seminal 80’s classic monster mash-up Waxwork when I interviewed him a few months back (read about it, and a possible Waxwork musical, right here).
UPDATE: The trailer for Mirrors is now online and embedded below! Alexandre Aja's remake of of Mirrors is slowly pulling me in. Sure, it's a remake of a Korean ghost story and those are becoming old hat, but something about casting Kiefer Sutherland in it gives the film and edge that the others lack. Too bad we haven't seen a trailer yet, and the release is just a couple months away. Oh Aja! Why do you tease us!
In news that just kinda came out of nowhere, Fangoria got word that Shrooms (review) director Paddy Breathnach's follow up feature that has been commonly known as Red Mist will be undergoing a name change, to Freakdog of all things.
Video blogs ... oh how they've made Internet 2.0 a place of unstoppable hilarity, hate and now ... death?! That would seem to be the case over at Break where a new webseries from Twisted Pictures and the producers of Saw kicked off this week.
Lionsgate sent over today the art work for a collection of horror features titled 6 Films To Keep You Awake.
Fox were kind enough to provide us with some interview footage for The Happening, M. Night Shyamalan’s first venture into R-rated territory. The on-cameras are with M. Night himself, star Mark Wahlberg, and stars Zooey Deschanel and John Leguizamo. In addition, be sure to get The Happening press conference audio for your iPod, you’ll feel like you were there! The Happening is in theaters this Friday, July 13th!
