First Details and Some Behind-the-Scenes Stills from The WinedancersFor the past five weeks the South of France has been hosting the cast and crew of the new horror film The Winedancers, and we have the early details along with a few behind-the-scenes stills. It’s written and directed by Gary Meyer and produced under the helm of Godam Film.

The Winedancers is currently being edited with a release expected in 2014.

The international cast includes UK actors Lucinda Rhodes, Edmund Digby-Jones, Kyle Calderwood, and Marina De Salis; Scandinavian actor Kim Sønderholm; Mexican actors Mariana Peñalva and J.C. Montes-Roldan; Polish actress Kasia Koleczek; French actors Miglen Mirtchev, Antoine Martin, and Andrea Catozzi (an acrobat able to do the craziest things!); and the towering Jonathan Christopher Duncan playing “Gimp.” Finally, there is “Fashion One Correspondents” model Callie Roberts.

Synopsis:
The Winedancers is about several groups of people coming together and meeting up at a wine cheateu in the South of France. Before long a lot of very peculiar incidents start taking place: odd Pagan rituals, chateau hosts very far from the ordinary, people slowly going off the deep end one by one, and most importantly, bloody murder – VERY bloody murder, in fact! It offers real suspense akin to a classic game of whodunit with a lot of twists and turns.

Said director, writer, and producer Gary Meyer about the film: “It all started in my back garden. I was working with a friend of mine who was into films so that’s all we talked about. I wanted to write something new, raw and keep it that way, not allowing it to be changed by outside influences and pressures to make it the same as everything else out there. A mixture of horror comedy and theatre, a roller coaster of emotions. For some reason I came up with a transvestite cowboy line dancer as the main character wearing stiletto heals and tapping to the beat of ‘Cotton-Eye Joe.’ To this day I’m entirely sure where that idea came from. Then after some brainstorming and getting some work on a vineyard, The Winedancers was born.”

“The inspiration: Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man, Tony Scott’s The Hunger, and life here in Provence with its deep-rooted French way of life resisting change as much as it can from the outside world. The wine, the vineyards, and the Pagan-like festivals which are held in the small surrounding villages during the summer. Oh yes, I almost forgot… the French love of dancing. Line dancing, it seems inherent. It is so beautiful here that one can only get inspired, but just below the surface of this beauty lies greed, corruption, and the unseeing innocent victims who are lured here by its magic; it’s a magnet for it. The Winedancers is this story hosted by the Greek gods Pan and Bacchus, not to mention a glass or two of wine.”

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
