Fabrice du Welz
And the French horror invasion keeps right on going with the announcement of Fabrice du Welz's latest based on a true story psycho horror tale, Alleluia.
Few films have divided the Dread Central staff like the Funny Games remake did, but one thing we all agreed on was how great its two young co-stars, Michael Pitt and Brady Corbet, were. Apparently we're not alone as Belgian director Fabrice Du Welz (Calvaire, Vinyan) has tapped Corbet for the lead in his next project, which is tentatively entitled More.
Back in 2004 a little Belgian movie with the strange title of Calvaire hit the festival circuit before going straight to DVD here in the States. Now, I don't know about you, but that film was SO disturbing to me on so many levels: the Penguin Dance, the village with no women, the innkeeper Bartel and his obvious confusion when itinerant entertainer Marc Stevens shows up on his doorstep a few days before Christmas. And the pig.
Five clips from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment went online today to celebrate the film's DVD release on April 7th, 2009, and we've got every single one of them for you! Check them out below, and if interested, pre-order the flick by clicking on the link to our EVILShop on Amazon! Official Synopsis:
We just got a heads up that Sony has set a DVD release date for the Fabrice Du Welz shocker Vinyan of April 7, 2009. The disc will only come with a making-of featurette as of now, but more features may be added down the line.
Despite (or maybe because of) the fact that it’s not been winning hearts and minds whenever it’s played, indeed from all account it’s been dividing more audiences than it has been uniting, Fabrice du Welz’ follow-up to Calvaire, the feral children thriller Vinyan, is a movie that fans are beginning to clamor for.
Fabrice du Welz’s Vinyan is one of the first lucky recipients of a distro deal courtesy of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, which kicked off yesterday, according to THR. Not too shabby getting your film nabbed within the first 24 hours of any fest.
Starring Laurent Lucas, Jackie Berroyer, Philippe Nahon, Jean-Luc Couchard Directed by Fabrice Du Welz
