First Clip From Cannibalism Tale – Poe

Published

on

It’s been a while since we last talked about Francis Xavier’s latest horror film, Poe, but good things come to those who wait. Good things like the first ever clip!

Synopsis
Poe, written and directed by Francis Xavier, tells the story of brilliant and wealthy Dr. Andrew Casey (David Fine – Rent, The Red Door) who is a serial killer known only by the name of ‘Chef’. His need for notoriety causes the doctor to seek out writer Johnathan Poe (Stelio Savante – “Ugly Betty”, My Super Ex-Girlfriend), a descendant of the famed writer Edgar Allan Poe and a brilliant writer in his own right, with an offer to write his biography. Poe is intrigued and agrees to the assignment. Dr. Casey along with his butler Mr. Peeples (Mike Iorio – My Super Ex-Girlfriend) lures women to his home under the alias of film director Jack Conway with the pretense of meeting to discuss a well-paying role. Once the women arrive, they are tied up, drugged and eventually sliced up to be used for meat to feed the homeless at the Help Feeding Foundation soup kitchen. Once at the house, Poe is forced to witness all manner of horrors without the ability to either escape or help the women who have been captured.

When naked torsos begin turning up in and around the Los Angeles area, police detectives Victor Ramirez (Sal Landi – Cold Case, For the Boys) and Jonah “Jonzy” Jones (Greg Travis – Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2) begin the task of searching for this most troublesome serial killer along with forensic pathologist Amy Short (Felissa Rose – Sleepaway Camp). As the clues mount and their efforts intensify, the police are led to believe they have their suspect in middle aged Aaron Cameron (Gene Silvers – Law & Order, Third Watch), a loner who lives with his alcoholic mother (Maray Ayres, General Hospital) and finally snaps after one too many abuses by killing her in a fit of rage. With similarities between his killing and the work of “The Chef”, Aaron is initially thought to be the prime suspect in the serial killings. However, after extensive interrogation by Detective Ramirez, the true story of horror and abomination is revealed. The film also stars Alisa Schulz (Cosmic Radio) and Azure Parsons (Elvis).

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating

Published

on

Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations

Published

on

The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
