Aja's Mirrors was hit or miss with fans, and we can only hope that Victor Garcia's follow-up will hit more of the marks that fans wanted it to. We'll get the chance to judge for ourselves soon enough!
This scribe co-hosted last night’s Screamfest LA ‘Night of Mayhem’ mixer at the hipster hangout Kung Pao Kitty in Hollywood, CA, and brought back a slew of photos as well as release info and word on a couple of flicks you may be interested in.
This scribe just got in from a quick visit to the set of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s just-wrapped Mirrors 2, and while I can’t spill much yet regarding the Baton Rouge, Louisiana production (although horror fans can expect scenes featuring disembowelment, nudity and decapitation, among others), I can provide you a series of behind-the-scenes pics (see ‘em below), as well as an update on the Victor (Return to House on Haunted Hill) Garcia directed feature.
Lesley Chen of Fox Home Entertainment provided us with a plot synopsis and casting news for the company’s sequel to last year’s Alexandre Aja-helmed Mirrors. Titled Mirrors 2 and directed by Victor (Return to House on Haunted Hill) Garcia from a script by Matt (White Noise 2) Venne, the planned direct-to-DVD film is currently shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and stars Nick Stahl, William Katt, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Lawrence Turner, Stephanie Honore, Christy Charlson Romano, Jon Michael Davis, Evan Jones, Wayne Pere, Lance E.
Another sequel no one is clamoring for, Mirrors 2, is apparently proceeding full steam ahead, and today some details were revealed including the film's director and a brief outline of the storyline.
Details are sketchy, but thanks to the Freefall Films website, we learned today that both the Terror Train remake and a new project called Slaughter (which has nothing to do with the film by the same name that played as part of After Dark's Horrorfest III) are gearing up for production.
Getting excited for the next 8 Films to Die for? Hot on the heels of our exclusive look at the Butterfly Effect 3 poster comes another one for the film Slaughter!
Remember that screenplay that won the Slamdance competition to get made into a film by Maverick Red, Slaughter? For a while it was a big deal, with Shawnee Smith signed to star and Victor (Return to House on Haunted Hill) Garcia on board as director. Then ... nothing.
Can you believe both Shawnee Smith (pictured) and Erica Leerhsen are being called scream queens now? I mean, sure, it’s by a trade publication, but it’s still kinda weird to think of Smith on the same level as, say, your everyday Brinke Stevens.
As promised, FEARNet released the first part of their 30 Days of Night: Blood Trails project to the world wide web today! This online-only video is a prequel to the upcoming feature film bearing the same name (sans Blood Trails of course) that is set for theatrical release on October 19th.
