Tribeca 2014: First Wave Films Include Honeymoon, Summer of Blood, and More; New Stills!The 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, running April 16-27 in New York City, has announced its first wave of films; and we have the horror highlights (sparse though they may be) here along with a few new stills.

From the Press Release:
The 2014 Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), presented by AT&T, today announced the World Narrative and Documentary Competition film selections, along with selections for the out-of-competition Viewpoints section, which highlights unique, personal stories and diverse filmmakers in international and American independent cinema. Forty seven of the 87 feature-length films were announced as part of the 13th edition of the Festival, which will take place from April 16 to April 27 at locations around New York City and open with the documentary film Time Is Illmatic.

The Festival announced that Dior and I will screen as opening night for the World Documentary competition, Gabriel will open the World Narrative competition, and Summer of Blood will open the Viewpoints section. All three titles will have their world premiere on April 17.

As for those horror titles mentioned above, there are only three (and one of them is more of a noir thriller) in the Viewpoints section, but with the feature-length films in the Spotlight, Midnight, and Special sections still to be announced on Thursday, March 6, we expect many more to come.

Viewpoints
The core of Tribeca’s commitment to launching fresh voices and embracing risky, utterly original storytelling is Viewpoints. Kicking off with the delightfully twisted Summer of Blood, Onur Tukel’s comedic reimagining of the vampire genre, the spectrum of boundary-pushing work Viewpoints celebrates is reflected in a bounty of styles, genres, filmmakers, and subjects. The 2014 program is one of uncommon originality and exuberance.

“This year’s Viewpoints section resonates with voices that are distinctive and vital,” said Director of Programming Genna Terranova. “I believe that these filmmakers push cinematic boundaries and ensure a bright and dynamic future for independent storytelling.”

  • Black Coal, Thin Ice (Bai Ri Yan Huo), directed and written by Diao Yinan. (China, Hong Kong) – North American Premiere, Narrative.
    After a botched arrest in a grisly serial-murder case, small-town detective Zhang Zili is suspended from the force, taking a job as a security guard at a coal factory. When another series of mysteriously similar murders takes place five years later, Zhang sets out to investigate on his own. Winner of the top prize at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, Diao Yinan’s moody, quietly powerful thriller is a classic film noir staged against the quotidian lives of a wintry Northern Chinese industrial town. In Mandarin with subtitles.

  • Honeymoon, directed and written by Leigh Janiak, co-written by Phil Graziadei.
    (USA) – New York Premiere, Narrative.

    What begins as a happy honeymoon for newlyweds Bea (Rose Leslie) and Paul (Harry Treadaway) takes a sinister turn when Bea disappears from bed one night and Paul discovers her the next day naked in the woods with no memory of how she got there. Soon Bea begins an escalating, unexplainable shift from a happy, carefree young woman to a cold, distant, and calculating one. Supernatural forces may be at work, but they uncannily echo some of the anxieties that come with a new marriage—issues such as secrecy, mistrust, and loss of identity—in Janiak’s brooding domestic drama.

  • Summer of Blood, directed and written by Onur Tukel. (USA) – World Premiere, Narrative.
    Misanthropic and immature Eric faces a premature mid-life crisis after his girlfriend leaves him. With no career and even less charisma in bed, it seems like this lovable loser is beyond hope, until one fateful summer night when a vampire bites him in a Brooklyn alleyway. The next day Eric finds his confidence invigorated and his stomach in excruciating pain that can only be cured by one thing… blood. Onur Tukel directs and stars in this delightfully dark comedy about love, lust, and humanity.

    Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date

    Published

    on

    Earlier this year, we wrote about Synapse Films’ Suspiria 4K restoration and how it was available for pre-order. The weird catch was that there was no release date confirmed and that pre-orders would go out sometime in December 2017. Today that changes as we can confirm that the 3-disc special edition Blu-ray collection will come out December 19th, just in time for Christmas but a little late for Hanukkah. Any chance we can have one extra night this year?

    Restored over three years, Synapse has been working tirelessly to create the ultimate version of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic supernatural horror film, which has since gone on to become one of the most recognized and lauded titles in the genre. This cut has been overseen and approved by Luciano Tovoli, the Director of Photography on the film.

    Pre-orders are still available via Synapse Films’ website.

    Special features:
    *Limited edition of only 6000 units produced
    *Exclusive Steelbook packaging and collector’s o-card sleeve, featuring artwork from Malleus, Van Orton Design, Juan José Saldarriaga & Chris MacGibbon
    *Three disc [Two Blu-rays + One CD] limited collector’s edition (only 6000 units) containing a new 4K restoration of the original uncut, uncensored Italian 35mm camera negative exclusively done by Synapse Films, with color correction supervised and approved by SUSPIRIA Director of Photography, Luciano Tovoli
    *Original 4.0 1977 English language LCRS sound mix not heard since the theatrical release in 1977, presented in high-resolution DTS-HD MA 96 Khz/24-bit audio
    *Italian 5.1 surround sound mix
    *Two audio commentaries by authors and Argento scholars, Derek Botelho, David Del Valle & Troy Howarth
    *Do You Know Anything About Witches? – 30 minute SUSPIRIA visual essay written, edited and narrated by Michael Mackenzie

    *Original theatrical trailers, TV spots and radio spots
    *Special Collector Edition Booklet containing an American Cinematographer interview with Luciano Tovoli, liner notes by Derek Botelho and restoration notes by Vincent Pereira & Don May, Jr. Cover artwork by Matthew Therrien Illustration

    Creep 2 starring Mark Duplass and Desiree Akhavan hits Netflix December 23rd!

    Synopsis:

    Desiree Akhavan (“Girls”, APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR) stars as Sara, a video artist whose primary focus is creating intimacy with lonely men. After finding an ad online for “video work,” she thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams. She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man claiming to be a serial killer (Mark Duplass, reprising his role from the previous film). Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him. However, as the day goes on she discovers she may have dug herself into a hole she can’t escape.
