Richard Stanley, director of such 90’s genre mainstays like, ‘Hardware’ and ‘Dust Devil’ is now stepping up to the eldritch plate to take a swing at Lovecraft’s, ‘The Colour Out of Space’. SpectreVision, the company behind recent indie genre films as ‘A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night’ and the recent, ‘Cooties’ (with Elijah Woods)
You are Alex, and you’ve just brought your new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight island party gone horribly wrong.
I got my first taste of Chainsaw Sally from April Burril – Sally herself – at a tiny little film festival in Texas a few years ago. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect since it wasn’t something I’d usually watch, but I decided to give it a chance. I wasn’t disappointed. And now, two
