Yes, it’s official – -my geek pants have exploded.
Even more disturbing than that, they have exploded with shapeless congeries of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light.
What does all this mean? Well, let me tell you… provided I can stop hyperventilating.
Want a way to instantly repel me from a movie? Just have M. Night Shyamalan’s name tagged onto it. I had a glimmer of hope for him until I actually saw that rancid accident of filmmaking they called “The Last Airbender”. He’s used up any good will I may have had for him. In my opinion, he’s finally made his descent into the Uwe Boll-level of Hell that Dante mercifully left out of his Divine Comedy. I would be hard pressed to find myself willing showing up for another of his offensive crapfests.
At least as long as he’s in the director’s chair.
Producing, apparently, is another matter.
I don’t know why, but this trailer for the upcoming “Devil” – describes as “From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan”, but is directed by John Dowdle – intrigues me. I’m not quite sure why. A group of people trapped in an elevator and one of them isn’t what they seem to be. Old and busted? Maybe but again, I found it interesting. Maybe he’s less likely to fuck up a movie once he’s out of the big chair. Here’s to hoping.
“2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams” makes no bones about being raw and raunchy, lewd, crude and socially unacceptable. As such, it made perfect sense to director Tim Sullivan that the trailer for the movie should be just as outrageous. The kind folks at Shock Til You Drop reported it a while back so it’s not exactly hot off the press, but it is worth repeating.
What follows is something that Sullivan cut with his editors, Adam Robitel and Dan Flesher. It is by no means official and it is spoilerific, but it is a very naughty extended taste of the movie, which follows after the jump. You were warned.
That Alice girl sure gets around. Yes, we’ve already seen her out and about with Tim Burton. Seems now she’s about to get down and dirty with Marilyn Manson in his directorial debut, “Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll.” I could rant and rave about this, but instead, I will let you, the internet viewing public, decide.
File this under, “Just what we need – another musician directing movies.”
It can’t be worse than “Halloween 2”, can it?
There’s no rest for the wicked and apparently, none also for Mel House – make whatever value judgment on that you like. Having just recently premiered his latest film, “Walking Distance” at the DIFF last month, we find his next film is already nearing completion. This time, producing and writing “Imago” with first time director Chris Warren in the big seat. “Imago” also includes horror veterans Debbie Rochon (“Walking Distance”) and Lisa Wilcox (“A Nightmare on Elm Street” 4 and 5).
This trailer (after the jump) was premiered at Texas Frightmare Weekend and is now released exclusively to TerrorScribe.com and Red Carpet Crash.
