There's no doubt about it; Andre Ovreda's Troll Hunter looks all kinds of "Holy shit"! And while we wait patiently for Magnet to release the original film here in the States, there are already whispers of a remake floating around tinsel town.
The success of the Paranormal Activity franchise has done a lot of good for not only our genre but for the indie filmmakers working within it. Case in point - Amanda Gusack's cinéma-vérité style spooker, In Memorium.
Director Michael Bartlett just checked in to let us know that his sequel to the very popular The Zombie Diaries (review here) is well on its way and has a new title and even a new teaser one-sheet! Ready for the goods?
With the Paranormal Activity franchise clocking major profits, you can expect cinéma-vérité style flicks to keep coming hot and heavy. The latest one to come to our attention is Atrocious, which the good folks over at Celluloid Nightmares just snapped up. From the Press Release:
The director of The Fourth Kind is at it again with a new feature film concerning an interesting and nasty bit of found footage. Get ready to gaze in horror at Olatunde Osunsanmi's Dark Moon. Why can't I stop lauging after writing that? Why?!?!?
Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today that it has acquired world rights (excluding Europe) to writer/director André Ovredal’s docu-style horror flick.
While the imagery alone is enough to get us excited for this latest import monster mash, Troll Hunter, we have to admit it is kind of nice finally knowing what these cats have been saying in between the screaming and the running!
The full international trailer for our new favorite holy shit! film, Troll Hunter, has just popped up online, and as always we have your hot ticket to see it!
Another flick playing on September 24th at this year's Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas that we're really looking forward to is Chris Peckover's Undocumented. To celebrate the flick's premiere the first teaser poster has just hit online and we have a peek at it for you!
Troll Hunter first appeared on our radar just a couple of days ago. With these latest clips it has now taken up permanent residence there. You want "HOLY SHIT"? You've got "HOLY SHIT"!
Now this is usually the kind of territory that our beloved Foywonder would be treading upon in terms of reporting, but after seeing the stills and trailer for the upcoming Norwegian mockumentary Troll Hunter, I just cannot resist.
Opening this December in Spain is the long talked about flick Exorcismus, aka The Possession of Emma Evans, and we've got some new artwork and even some crazy ass exorcism stills! Consider yourselves compelled! Look for more on the film directed by Manuel Carballo and starring Tommy Bastow, Sophie Vavasseur, Richard Felix, Douglas Bradley, and Stephen Billington soon.
Paranormal Activity creator Oren Peli will team with Paranormal Activity 2 screenwriter Michael R. Perry for another cinéma-vérité experience in found footage horror - this one coming to small screens everywhere.
One flick we're really looking forward to around these parts is Chris Peckover's cinéma-vérité style shocker, Undocumented which will be having its world premiere at this year's Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. To celebrate the film's release we've gotten our hands on five stills, some bloody, some moody, and some spooky! Dig it! Undocumented tells the tale of a documentary crew who accompany a group of illegal immigrants crossing the Border, but their plans run afoul when they're captured by a gang of sadistic radicals in New Mexico.
When we first saw [REC] a few years ago, we never pegged it for a film that could be franchised. The truly badass sequel [REC] 2 totally proved us wrong, and we have to say we're more than ready for parts three and four. Apparently so are plenty of other places ...
