The Toronto International Film Festival is just around the corner, and with it will come one movie that I’ve been looking forward to for the last few years; J.T. Petty’s The Burrowers. Big monsters in the Old West? Yes please!
As with most years previous, the Midnight Madness lineup at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival is a damn impressive one.
STYD reports that the MPAA has ruled on a rating for J.T. Petty's Western creature feature The Burrowers. I am happy to say that the pic has received the coveted "Restricted" rating! Now, the only issue is that Lionsgate still has not announced a release date or even the year in which we can see The Burrowers. What the hell?
During the recent Weekend of Horrors in Secaucus, NJ (read the full report here), I finally got the chance to meet Soft for Digging and Mimic: Sentinel director JT Petty, whose work I’ve been a huge fan of for years. He was there to promote his next film, The Burrowers, a monster movie we’ve been keeping tabs on since its initial announcement.
**UPDATE: A ton of pics have just been added to the WoH gallery, so be sure to check it out!**
We all know that the WGA strike is tarring up the production of some horror movies, but what about the ones that were already in production before the movement? Where do J.T. Petty’s films stand right now?
On the set of David Gregory’s Plague Town last night (more on that later), I got to chatting with one of the makeup effects guys on the project, and he made mention of having worked with J.T. Petty on a project recently, something called “Red Earth”.
As JT Petty comes closer to finishing his first "studio" pic, The Burrowers, and Fearnet is close to launching their prequel for 30 Days of Night, the two projects are inching closer and closer together so that they have something in common. Other than blood.
Maybe I’m just weird, but if I were in a situation in which I had to face the very real possibility of being eaten alive by nasty underground creatures, I think I would be at peace with that.
So recently you may recall we showed you the first piece of teaser art from J.T. (Soft for Digging, Mimic: Sentinel) Petty’s upcoming monster movie, The Burrowers (see it here), a movie that’s been in one form of pre-production or another for years now, but we’ve never lost track of.
Following up on the first look at test art for JT Petty’s long-delayed monster movie The Burrowers (see it here), the boys at Bloody Disgusting got the first bit of casting news for the project today.
Man, the folks at Twitch Film got their hands on some very sexy batches of sexiness today!
The other day we reported the great news that J. T. Petty had been signed on to bring new life to the long-thought-dead Faces of Death franchise. We dropped a line to J. T. to find out just what he thought about the project and what he hopes to see happen with it.
Anyone that’s seen either Soft for Digging or Mimic: Sentinel will likely agree with me when I say J.T. Petty is a horror filmmaker we should all be keeping our eyes on. He managed to create a ve
