Scott Spiegel Invites You to His Zombie Wedding



Post Thumb:


Scott Spiegel Invites You to His Zombie WeddingWhenever anyone starts talking about underrated horror filmmakers, one of the first names that pops into my head is Scott Spiegel. The writer of Evil Dead 2 and director of films like Intruder and Hostel: Part III always manages to entertain, with a unique style that is all his own.

Spiegel doesn’t get around to making movies all that often, which is why it’s always exciting when a new project is announced. Read on for full details about Zombie Wedding!

From the Press Release
Boaz Yakin, co-writer/executive producer of the summer hit NOW YOU SEE ME, will produce director Scott Spiegel’s latest horror film, ZOMBIE WEDDING. Announced last year, the new high-concept project from the EVIL DEAD II screenwriter and INTRUDER director is based on Marc Selz’s screenplay of the same title, which Spiegel rewrote with Selz’s collaboration. Fango’s editor emeritus Tony Timpone will co-produce. ZOMBIE WEDDING follows a couple of young horror lovers who decide to hold a zombie-themed wedding on Halloween night only to have “real” flesh-eating ghouls crash their celebration.

“The main reason I’m excited about ZOMBIE WEDDING is the opportunity to work with Scott Spiegel again, who, as well as being a dear friend, is an energetic and talented filmmaker. Scott always brings something exciting and offbeat to the horror genre,” says Yakin, who co-wrote Clint Eastwood’s THE ROOKIE with Spiegel and also produced HOSTEL, HOSTEL: PART II and 2001 MANIACS. In addition, Yakin directed the films SAFE, REMEMBER THE TITANS and FRESH. He also previously collaborated with Spiegel on the story for FROM DUSK TILL DAWN 2: TEXAS BLOOD MONEY and partnered with him and director Eli Roth on the late horror label Raw Nerve.

“Scott has an understanding of horror, humor and visual storytelling that are unique,” says Yakin. “He’s one of the people who helped popularize the genre of off-the-wall anything-goes horror, and I’m dying to see what he comes up with in ZOMBIE WEDDING.”

“Boaz will bring his vast filmic insight to ZOMBIE WEDDING,” says Spiegel. “He is really well versed in every genre and was instrumental in the development of the HOSTEL franchise. From script to casting to production to editing, Boaz’s creativity knows no bounds. I’m proud to have him on board.”

“As creator and co-writer of ZOMBIE WEDDING, it is my pleasure to welcome the multi-talented Boaz Yakin to the ZOMBIE WEDDING team,” adds Selz, the co-writer/director of SATANIC PANIC and THE ROCKVILLE SLAYER. “Boaz’s vast industry knowledge and experience will be a huge addition to our incredible dream team. I look forward to seeing what his producing skills will bring to the table. Scott and Boaz have worked together many times in the past, and I cannot wait to see what this incredible duo will do again with our film.”

With ZOMBIE WEDDING, Spiegel, Selz and Timpone have been striving to make a zombie film that stands out in the undead pack, a goal that Yakin now shares. “So many talented people have been working in this arena lately,” Yakin says. “It’s really a matter of the filmmaker’s unique voice coming through, and I have no doubt Scott’s will on ZOMBIE WEDDING, as it always does when he gets behind the camera.”

Stay tuned for more ZOMBIE WEDDING updates as the film gears up for production later this year.

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy



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



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.
