First up on August 14th is Carved: The Slit-Mouthed Woman. The story follows a town that was plagued, 30 years ago, by the vengeful spirit of a once-beautiful woman who would catch villagers unaware and kill them horribly if they reacted to her ugliness. Now children are disappearing again, and the village fears the slit-faced woman is back.
Then on August 28th is an interesting sounding film called Red Road. Though it doesn’t sound like straight-up horror, the movie is about a woman working as a CCTV operator in Glasgow who one day sees a man she had thought, hoped, she would never see again. The film won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, as well as numerous other accolades, and the DVD will come with the director’s Academy Award winning short “Wasp” as well as other features.
The 28th will also see the release of Bad Blood about a family who inherits a house in a town filled with superstition, but as stranger and stranger things happen around them, they begin to question what is superstition and what is real.
Not a bad lineup; at least they’re getting away from the straight-up ghost story finally. However, I do highly recommend you go out and pick up Silk, which Tartan released a few weeks back (DVD is taking way too long to be reviewed, sorry); it’s a damn fine movie and original to boot!
