Remaining Tribeca 2010 Film Festival Features Announced



Remaining Tribeca 2010 Film Festival Features AnnouncedFollowing up on our story about the first half of the Tribeca 2010 slate, the remaining feature films have been announced, and as we suspected, there are quite a few more genre gems that will be shown at the fest.

Today the categories of “Encounters,” “Discovery,” “Spotlight,” and “Cinemania” (formerly known as “Midnight”) were fleshed out.

For more information, including the full list of films and ticket info, visit the official 2010 Tribeca Film Festival website.

“Encounters” is a mixture of 14 films, both mystery-thrillers and lighter fare. Out of that group, those that fall in the horror(ish) category include:

  • The Chameleon (Le Cameleon)
    Directed by Jean-Paul Salomé, written by Jean-Paul Salomé and Natalie Carter (Canada, France) – World Premiere
    When teenager Nicholas Barclay (Marc-André Grondin, C.R.A.Z.Y.) mysteriously resurfaces after he went missing three years ago, his sister (Emilie De Ravin, Lost) and mother (Ellen Barkin) welcome him back with open arms, but a no-nonsense FBI agent (Famke Janssen) is out to prove he’s an impostor. Working from a true story, director Jean-Paul Salomé (Female Agents) delivers an unsettling psychological thriller – featuring an unforgettable performance by Barkin – that will keep you guessing.
    In English.

  • Tetsuo, The Bullet Man
    Directed by Shinya Tsukamoto, written by Shinya Tsukamoto and Hisakatsu Kuroki (Japan) – North American Premiere
    More than 20 years after he used 16mm to prove himself worthy of a cult following with Tetsuo, The Iron Man, Shinya Tsukamoto is back with another frenetic, hyperbolic experience. This slick, modernized third installation of the Tetsuo series — shown here in the final director’s cut for the first time — continues to challenge ideas of man and machine … and the trouble that ensues when the two become one.

    Things really pick up steam for genre fans in the “Spotlight” category, which is comprised of eight highly anticipated, bold-faced features that tell stories of human nature and perseverance. Here are the highlights:

  • The Disappearance of Alice Creed
    Directed and written by J Blakeson (UK) – US Premiere
    Two men fortify and soundproof an abandoned apartment, kidnapping and imprisoning the daughter of a millionaire for ransom. Her kidnappers, the coldly efficient Vic and his younger accomplice Danny, have worked out a meticulous plan, but Alice is not going to play the perfect victim… This taut, emotionally intense thriller eschews genre conventions, generating tension from the sexual and psychological ties that bind captive to captors.
    An Anchor Bay Films release.

    Remaining Tribeca 2010 Film Festival Features Announced

  • The Killer Inside Me
    Directed by Michael Winterbottom, written by John Curran (USA) — New York Premiere
    Casey Affleck is Lou Ford, a deputy sheriff whose continuous inner monologue reveals a savage sociopath hidden behind his accommodating Texan smile. When his escalating entanglements with a local prostitute and his prying fiancée back him into a corner, his urges will erupt in shocking violence. Michael Winterbottom’s subversive film noir is adapted from cult pulp author Jim Thompson’s novel. With Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Bill Pullman, and Elias Koteas.
    An IFC Films release.

    Remaining Tribeca 2010 Film Festival Features Announced

    And the fun keeps on going in “Cinemania” with six thrillingly unique films, at least three of which should appeal to our readers:

  • Dream Home (Wai dor lei ah yut ho)
    Directed by Ho-Cheung Pang, written by Ho-Cheung Pang, Kwok Cheung Tsang, and Chi-Man Wan (Hong Kong) — North American Premiere
    Cheng Lai-sheung is a young, upwardly mobile professional finally ready to invest in her first home. But when the deal falls through, she is forced to keep her dream alive — even if it means keeping her would-be neighbors dead. Pang Ho-Cheung’s disturbingly imaginative violence unfolds against a backdrop of lifestyle fetishization and the housing market crisis in this metropolitan spin on Guignol horror.
    In Cantonese with English subtitles.

    Remaining Tribeca 2010 Film Festival Features Announced

  • Possessed
    Directed and written by Lee Yong-ju (South Korea) — North American and TFF Virtual Premiere
    In this eminently creepy horror show, college student Hee-jin returns home in the wake of her younger sister’s disappearance, only to find her mother a fanatical religious convert and the family’s neighbors offing themselves in increasingly bizarre and grotesque ways. Together with detective Tae-hwan, Hee-jin must unravel the tangled web of connections between the victims that will lead back to the missing girl.
    In Korean with English subtitles.

    Remaining Tribeca 2010 Film Festival Features Announced

  • Ticked-Off Trannies with Knives
    Directed and written by Israel Luna (USA) — World Premiere
    When a group of transgendered women are violently beaten and left for dead, the violated vixens turn deadly divas in this hilariously campy homage to the exploitation films of the ’70s and ’80s (“Transploitation,” anyone?). Loaded with bodacious bods and extreme violence, this revenge fantasy proves that it takes more than balls to get even.

    Remaining Tribeca 2010 Film Festival Features Announced

    Last but not least is “Discovery,” 17 diverse documentary and narrative films from new voices, none of which are horror-related but all of which look to be rather fascinating.

    Inoperable starring Danielle Harris Gets New Poster and Limited December Release Date



    Last year we here at Dread Central premiered the trailer for the upcoming Danielle Harris hospital horror flick Inoperable from director Christopher Lawrence Chapman.

    Today we have the film’s all-new poster and news that the film will finally be hitting select theaters on December 1st.

    I just watched the trailer again myself and I have to say I am really looking forward to the film. I dig the location, the hurricane aspect, the psychological horror of the situation and the whole she-bang.

    Count me to check out the film as soon as it hits Blu-ray and/or VOD (hopefully) within the new year. We’ll let you know when we hear more.

    What do you think of the trailer and new poster for Inoperable? Let us know below!

    The film is directed by Christopher Lawrence Chapman from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jeff Miller. The film stars Danielle Harris, Katie Keene, and Isabella Sofia Menna.

    Robert Kurtzman’s Creature Corps handled the film’s makeup effects, with David Henson Greathouse (Syfy’s “FaceOff”) supervising, and he, Barry Aslinger, and Beki Ingram handling the bulk of the effects. Philip Jessen is unit production manager, Ashley Eberbach is first assistant director, and Bobby Marinelli is production designer.

    Inoperable hits select theaters December 1st.


    A young woman wakes up in a seemingly evacuated hospital with a hurricane approaching. She realizes the storm has awakened malevolent forces, trapping her in a time loop. She must escape the hospital before the storm passes or she will be trapped in its halls forever.

    Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own



    Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

    Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

    For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

    I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.
