Movie posters have become a lost art form. Remember back in the Eighties when even the smallest productions like Mortuary or The Boogens had great poster art? Decades later all we usually get are the floating heads of teens looking pensive, but every now and again we get a good one. Better yet, we have an exclusive look at a really good one for you!
Rochester, NY, Megan Paige (Dushku) is a driven police investigator whose commitment to the job borders on obsession. Her fiance, Kenneth Shine (Elwes), is also a lieutenant with the Rochester PD. They're currently working on one of their worst cases yet, the murder and rape of a 10-year-old girl named Carla Castillo. When Megan puts it together that she was murdered in Churchville, she is convinced they are dealing with a serial killer. She becomes so caught up she begins to have hallucinations... and a bloody Carla begins to haunt her regularly.

Rob Schmidt’s The Alphabet Killer

learned today that the label has named Schmidt’s Wrong Turn follow-up for distribution.
How often have you heard about a film based on a real series of killing actually helping to solve the crime? This is a first time for me...
Eliza Dushku and Cary Elwes have returned to the horror genre in a rather interesting true crime story, The Alphabet Killer (previous news here)
. The film is based on the murder/rape of three young girls Rochester, NJ during the 1970s.
We’ve been following Rob Schmidt’s return to the director’s chair after Wrong Turn, a cool sounding movie called The Alphabet Killer
, since it was first announced. The film wrapped production on Janua
Rob Schmidt knows a good thing when it’s staring him in the face. He got to spend some time in the woods with Eliza Dushku a few years back making Wrong Turn, and now that he’s on to his next feature, he’s making sure he keeps her around. Smart guy.
