Karl Siemon is a DP you've almost heard of thanks to a "little" movie called Saw, but if you're a serious cult film fan, you should know him well thanks to an Aussie horror film entitled Razor Eaters (2003).
A few weeks ago we posted an interview with actor turned short film writer/director Leslie Simpson about his new project Grandpa, and now we have the poster and trailer to share as well as a review!
Exclusive: Leslie Simpson Talks His New Short Film Grandpa, Directing Himself, New World Cinema, and More
Most genre fans will recall Leslie Simpson from the credits of film favourites Dog Soldiers and The Descent as, respectively, Pvt. Terry Milburn and a Crawler. Well, now he’s upped-stakes from England and is finding quite a bit of creativity Down Under.
As interest in director A.D. Barker’s headsy post-apocalyptic film A Reckoning, starring Leslie Simpson (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) and Axelle Carolyn (Centurion), grows, so does the number of images that are emerging from this brilliant film. Dread Central just received ten new stills for our readers to check out.
The folks behind the little-British-horror/psychological-movie-that-could, A Reckoning (aka Straw Man), have made good on their promise to debut a second new poster for the film; and of course we have it for you right here, hot off the presses! Synopsis:
Things are coming together for the little-seen British horror/psychological film A Reckoning (aka Straw Man), directed by Andrew Barker. Here is the first of two new posters for the movie.
Adam Krajczynski. Remember that name as I am sure you will see it again; his talents as a cinematographer cannot go unrecognized. Shooting the little-seen (but that will hopefully be changing soon) film A Reckoning on an unbelievably tiny budget, Krajczynski’s vision is right there on the screen – beautiful, eerie, stunning and haunting.
Horror fans everywhere should recognize the name “Leslie Simpson” from such favorites as Dog Soldiers, where he played Pvt. Terry Milburn, The Descent where he played one of the horrific Crawlers and Doomsday where he was Carpenter, one of the soldiers that were to escort heroine Eden Sinclair into the “Hot Zone”.
Writer/director Andrew Barker is a man with a mission. For his first feature film, the stunning and gut-wrenching A Reckoning (review here), his mission is to get the film out to the fans who so desperately want to see this movie and for good reason - it's excellent!
Guys. This looks REALLY cool!!! Seems like the Brits have taken matters into their own hands and are getting zombie fans involved in what looks like some serious fun in the English countryside. Are you ready for Antony Lane's Invasion of the Not-Quite Dead?
Recently we received a heads up from Axelle Carolyn, wife of Neil Marshall and an established writer in her own right (check out her latest column on IGN UK), about a new short she has a starring role in called “I Love You”.
