Olguin Off to Prom, Grave?

Published

on

Jorge Olguin offered Prom Night, Open GraveIt must be both a frustrating and exciting time for Sangra Eterna helmer Jorge Olguin. His creepy-sounding ghost story, The Call of the Sea, which is being produced by Guillermo del Toro, is set to finally start shooting this April; but his big budget U.S. debut, the adaptation of the popular survival horror game Clock Tower (last word on that was here), has been delayed until the middle of the year.

Perhaps Clock Tower will have to wait even longer, however, as Twitch Film has learned that Olguin has been offered the director’s seat for both the remake of Prom Night and NALA Film’s Open Grave, information gleaned from the Chilean newspaper La Tercera, who did an article on the man in their latest issue.

Though I’m sure it’s nice to be in demand like he is, the balancing act of figuring out which project will be next and making sure you’ve got enough pre-production time for them all has got to be a headache. Of course that’s a headache any young director would pay good money for, so hopefully he’s not complaining.

Obviously it’s not known if he’ll be jumping on either film yet, but hopefully we’ll hear something official soon about both. Prom Night is the oft delayed redux of the classic Jamie Lee Curtis slasher while Open Grave (which we first told you about here) tells of a man who wakes up in a pit full of corpses with no memory, unable to determine if he is a would-be victim or the killer himself.

Stay tuned for more as we learn it!

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

on

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
