The Wild Man of the Navidad co-director Duane Graves dropped me a line with word of his latest production written and produced by original Texas Chain Saw Massacre writer/producer Kim Henkel, Boneboys, which unleashes predatory cannibals in a cityscape.

Boneboys was originally conceived back in 2008 as a potential urban Texas Chain Saw Massacre sequel before getting reworked into its own potential franchise. Leatherface fans should be thrilled to know Boneboys boasts cameos by several TCM series alumni: Marilyn Burns, Bill Johnson, Ed Neal, Ed Guinn, Bill Wise, Perry Lorenz and John Dugan.

The Wild Man of The Navidad (review here) directors, Duane Graves and Justin Meeks, re-team with the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre writer/producer, Kim Henkel, for a gut-wrenching, non-stop roller coaster ride through the hellish underbelly of inner-city America. A birthday celebration at an upscale restaurant sets in motion events that bring Sissy, her brother, Mikey, and friends, Kenny and Barbie, face to face with the macabre world of the Boneboys. Inspired by Jonathan Swift’s cannibalistic tale A Modest Proposal, the Boneboys are international predators who deal in human flesh — dead or alive. Their hunting grounds are the cities of the world.

Derek Lee Nixon (Outrage: Born in Terror and relative newcomers Ali Faulkner and Philip Wolf star in this terrifying tale of inner city cannibalism filmed in and around Austin and San Antonio, Texas, last fall. Currently in the final stages of post production, expect Boneboys to play film festivals beginning early next year.

Below you’ll find a slew of production stills Graves was kind enough to pass along to us. Hopefully we’ll bring you a trailer in the very near future.

You can also keep up-to-speed on all things Boneboys at the official Boneboys website (currently almost bare-bones) and the Boneboys Facebook page.

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.
