Toby Wilkins is not happy simply being a director. He’s also a storyteller with a vision. His two latest films, Splinter (review here) and The Grudge 3 (review here), both prove that he’s got a long career ahead of him filedl with engrossing stories he wants to share with audiences.
Hey Midwestern horror fans, hope you’re keeping the weekend of March 6-8th open! Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors is coming to the Wyndham Chicago O’Hare Hotel, located at 6810 North Mannheim Road, in Rosemont, Illinois.
Man, Toby Wilkins just can’t catch a break when it comes to DVD releases for his films. First Splinter gets pushed up a few months with nary a word from the studio, and now The Grudge 3 has been relocated from March to May.
Maybe you didn’t notice it, but I know we sure as hell did; Splinter was supposed to hit DVD on January 27th. It didn’t. Why the hell is that, do you ask? No idea, but Magnolia will now be releasing Toby Wilkins’ badass monster movie on April 14th.
For a limited run this weekend, horror fans in Ohio will get one more shot at seeing Toby Wilkins' monster opus Splinter up on the silver screen! If you happen to be in the Cleveland area, this may be something too good for you to pass up!
Just about every filmmaker has a flick that never saw that light of day for one reason or another, including Splinter/Grudge 3 director Toby Wilkins.
Sony has finally released the artwork for The Grudge 3, the direct-to-DVD sequel helmed by Splinter director Toby Wilkins. The only extras on the DVD will be two making-of featurettes and deleted scenes when the disc streets on March 24th.
You know, rarely do I get excited about sequels. I loved the Ju-on movies, but for whatever reason, even with creator Takashi Shimizu at the helm of the American remakes, they still felt kind of stale. With the upcoming release of Ghost House Pictures' The Grudge 3 from Sony, some interesting surprises have been popping up. The latest one? Gone is the PG-13 rating, and in its place the MPAA has granted this third U.S. entry an R rating, the first in the franchise's history.
You may not remember, but one of the six awards Toby Wilkins’ Splinter took home from Screamfest LA was for Best Musical Score, and I have to concur; the music in this film is very, very cool. You don’t have to take my word for it, though, because now you can get the Splinter soundtrack for yourself!
How sad that the actual DVD art for Toby Wilkins’ Splinter isn’t that much better than the fake DVD art that was floating around a few weeks back? DVD Active got a look at the art thanks to a trade publication, so it’s most definitely legit.
Toby Wilkins' Splinter is an original horror movie with no big name stars and has garnered positive reviews, so, naturally, it only gets a very small limited release. Like many of you, I'm dying to see Splinter but it isn't playing anywhere near me and odds are it probably never will. Take heart, folks, it looks like we won't have to wait too long for a DVD release.
Splinter is in theatres now, have you seen it? Toby Wilkins wants you to see his monster movie and so do we!
Toby Wilkins (interview here) has kicked ass and taken names with his debut feature, Splinter, but the first reason we started talking about him was because he got the semi-sweet gig of directing the first non-Shimizu-helmed Grudge sequel.
