Horror movies in the Nineties had gone horribly awry with the exception of a few classics that slid out under the radar. Slasher films were now bloodless, the teenagers were no longer meat for the beast, and for whatever reason horror seemingly had lost one or two of its fans. But then they came. Horror’s latest superstar directors who were looking to set things straight!
A new documentary from WyrdStuff is on its way titled The Splat Pack that examines the first decade of 21st century horror films and the filmmakers who were dubbed “The Splat Pack” by film critic Alan Jones.
Featuring interviews with Alexandre Aja (High Tension), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II-IV), Adam Green (Hatchet), Alan Jones, Harry Knowles, Greg McLean (Wolf Creek), Neil Marshall (The Descent), Greg Nicotero, Eli Roth (Hostel), and the beauty to my journalistic beast — Staci Layne Wilson, The Splat Pack will be available for download soon. Hit up the above linkage for more details, and watch the trailer below.
