Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn’s film Drive, starring Ryan Gosling, made nearly $80 million at the box office. Recently we learned a really cool fact about him… Refn is a true lover of horror!
Check him out in action hosting a screening of a restored version of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
Refn is currently working on The Bringing, a film about the infamous video of a woman acting strangely in the elevator of Los Angeles’ Cecil Hotel. He was also helping out with the Maniac Cop remake, but on this night he was all about The Saw. The print was an amazing 4K digital restoration.
The video below is from The Directors’ Fortnight (Quinzaine des Réalisateurs), and was filmed by Colin Geddes who is behind the Midnight Madness program at the Toronto International Film Festival. The Directors’ Fortnight (Quinzaine des Réalisateurs) features new directorial talent and indie films outside the primary fest.
