A Bigger Boat Sails to Tom Shankland's Dark Corners

With his latest company, A Bigger Boat, Peter Block is amassing quite the horror canon with films from both up-and-comers like Adam Green and even horror masters like John Carpenter. The next talent to set sail? Tom Shankland, director of The Children. There truly are some wonderfully dark days ahead, dearest reader! From the Press Release:

Tom Shankland Talks The Children

Motion Picture Purgatory: The Children

Is it just me, or has there been a big resurgence in evil kid flicks lately? For my money, one of the best of the bunch is definitely Tom Shankland's The Children (read Andrew's extremely positive review here) although McCannibal had a different opinion following the film's screening at this year's Fantasia (read his review here). Of course that means Trembles has to add his $.02 into the mix!
