Established playwright Conor McPherson can add another feather to his cap now that Magnolia has acquired his debut directorial project, The Eclipse (not to be confused with Eclipse, the 2nd Twilight sequel), at Tribeca 2009. The deal is also notable as the first major sale at the fest for the past several years.
Horror fans? We're rabid. We notice everything sooner or later, and we're certainly not afraid to call someone on their bullshit, and that's exactly what has happened pertaining to Magnolia's English subtitle track on their release of Let the Right One In.
Maybe you didn’t notice it, but I know we sure as hell did; Splinter was supposed to hit DVD on January 27th. It didn’t. Why the hell is that, do you ask? No idea, but Magnolia will now be releasing Toby Wilkins’ badass monster movie on April 14th.
Though it’s hard to take a movie called Donkey Punch too seriously, all the reports I’ve heard about it, including our own review, confirm that it’s anything but goofy, despite the title. This clip goes a helluva long way to proving that!
Not a helluva lot of interesting “news” in here, but I thought it would warm the cockles of your collective heart, something desperately needed as temperatures continue to plummet on the East Coast, to know that some upcoming horror is, indeed, horrific.
Wow, that is just a really bad poster. No offense to Magnolia, but the UK poster for Donkey Punch was a helluva lot more appealing than this one, which Fangoria got their hands on yesterday.
How sad that the actual DVD art for Toby Wilkins’ Splinter isn’t that much better than the fake DVD art that was floating around a few weeks back? DVD Active got a look at the art thanks to a trade publication, so it’s most definitely legit.
Timecrimes (review) will be playing in some select theatres in November, but Magnolia is keeping us on edge as to where we can see it.
Magnolia will finally roll out Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In under their genre arm Magnet’s Six Shooter film series starting next Friday, October 24th, and finally we can tell you where you’ll need to go to see it!
Time Crimes (review) may be more of a suspense movie than a horror flick, but there's just something about time travel and bandaged-face, scissors-wielding psychos that's so inviting to us.
You know what we need more of today? Groups of hot young people being hijacked by maniacs to play a game called "Guess Who is the Final Girl." And on that note...
Joey M. pointed us to YouTube where a trailer for the long awaited Return to Sleepaway Camp was housed. The film will hopefully arrive on October 14th thanks to Magnolia Pictures.
I usually don’t give a hell about anything having to do with more Sleepaway Camp movies, but this was just too weird to ignore. Fangoria reported yesterday that Magnolia Pictures, the guys who put out The Signal, Shrooms and the original Pulse to name a few, has nabbed the release rights for Return to Sleepaway Camp.
