Seth Landau's horror pic Bryan Loves You, based on the true events regarding a cult taking over an Arizona town in '93, has seen its fair share of bad craziness during production:
The man, the myth, the legend; Dan Walton. All right, so his name may not mean a lot to you, but Dan’s well known to anyone who visits horror sites with the kind of untamed gusto that true devotees display, as he’s the driving force behind Upcoming Horror Movies, one of the longest running horror sites out there.
Today we received word that yet more information has leaked around the top secret movie, Bryan Loves You, the story of death and murder at the hands of a fanatical cut.
Every now and the, an indie film will show up on our radar seemingly out of nowhere and catch us by surprise. In this day and age when so many filmmakers want to be followed from the moment their film is conceived till the moment it hits the big screen, it’s nearly unheard for a horror movie to get made without someone online knowing of it.
So the guys who made Bryan Loves You, the movie about a cult who took over a small town in Arizona that stars George Wendt and Tony Todd, must have either hit a nerve with a group of people or are tying to play it out like that for media purposes. Either way it’s a pretty smart tactic to get attention.
I'd read some early stuff about Tim Sullivan’s follow-up to his ultra-gory debut, 2001 Maniacs, but it seems like a lot has changed since those days, all for the good.
Bryan is your friend. Bryan is sane. He wants nothing but the best for you. You see, as the title implies, Bryan Loves You. The folks behind the indie movie Bryan Loves You just dropped us a line with three (count ‘em three!) new posters for the film (check ‘em out below) as well as the exclusive news that a tagline has been chosen for the movie; "Meet Bryan, please. Bryan is good." Now if that’s not ominous, I don’t know the meaning of the word! Which I do!
Aside from all the returning regulars to Tim Sullivan’s upcoming sequel to 2001 Manaics, currently titled 2001 Maniacs: Beverly Hellbillys, the folks over at Horror Yearbook have learned some new & cool casting bits from the Weekend of Horrors.
Word has come down from the producers behind the indie cult horror film Bryan Loves You that, after setbacks and info being leaked left and right (though who knows if it was done on purpose to build hype), they’re throwing fans a bone with an early look at the flick’s trailer. Click here to check it out, and take some time with the five new images below. Some personal time, that is.
Even though we’re always hesitant when it comes to indie horror -- we’ve all been burned too many times by too much hype and not enough follow-through -- I have to admit there’s something appealing to me about the new film Bryan Loves You from writer/director Seth Landau.
Director Brian Pulido didn't have to look much farther than practically his own backyard when he was seeking inspiration for his next horror project. He found that the state of Arizona provided the right landscape to create a chilling supernatural journey with his telling of The Graves.
