Here is a compilation of some of the stuff that mattered to me this week whether it be good or bad. This week we’ll take a look at the very first images of I, Frankenstein, a great looking fan-made poster for Carrie, a man-eating toilet and much more. Enjoy!
First Look at I, Frankenstein
Shooting has finally begun in Australia for I, Frankenstein and below are some of the first set photos for the film featuring a creepy looking cemetery. Aaron Eckhart, Yvonne Strahovski, Bill Nighy and Socratis Otto are set to star in the upcoming film. I, Frankenstein is about Frankenstein’s creature, Adam, has survived to present day due to a genetic mishap in his creation. Making his way to a dark, gothic metropolis, he finds himself caught in a war between two immortal clans.
Fan-made Poster for Upcoming Carrie Remake
There are a ton of fanmade posters for upcoming films and not surprisingly they are almost always better than a lot of the crap that you see getting made for the official posters. This fan-made Carrie poster is no exception, it is very simple but captures what the film is all about perfectly. Not only is this a great poster but it has also caught the attention of Kimberly Peirce, the director of the Carrie remake. Peirce posted the art on her Facebook page giving it the seal of approval. Very cool.
Red Riding Hood’s Vengeance
Check out this new animated short film simply called Red from directors Jorge Jaramillo and Carlo Guillot. I thought this was a really cool and unique take on the old fairy tale because it has just enough of a horror style revisionism that I can appreciate. Check it out.
Six Unique Theater-Going Experiences
Head over to Fearnet.com to check out their list of 6 unique theater-going experiences. My favorite theaters that they listed would have to be the Alamo Drafthouse because they really take watching a film at the cinema to a whole new level by having themed screenings. Also, the Film on the Rocks Yao Noi theater in Thailand has to be most ridiculous theater ever because it literally floats in the ocean. If you haven’t seen this place yet, check it out below. Also, if they don’t screen Jaws at this theater then they are seriously missing out on some prime shit-your-pants scares.
Demons 3 Comic Book
Fans of Dario Argento’s Demons & Demons 2 will get a kick out of this Demons 3 comic book image. Argento’s insane Demons sequel is set to get a limited edition Blu-ray release soon so comic book writer Stefan Hutchinson has written a prequel comic book to release with the films that will tie into them. It’s a very cool idea and while this isn’t the Demons 3 film that many fans would have loved to see, it is definitely something worth checking out.
Hellraiser Set For a TV Series
It looks like Sonar Entertainment is developing Hellraiser for the small screen. Sonar announced:
“One of the most successful (and terrifying) franchises in film history is ready for its weekly television debut. For over 25 years, fans have followed the exploits of an insidious villain named Pinhead, summoned from a nightmarish underworld by an ancient puzzle box. He will seduce you with power and tempt you with fear, until your soul belongs to him.
Now, for the first time, a weekly series set in the fantastic realm of Hellraiser will thrill audiences worldwide.”
There is no word yet on a which network will be helming the series but I can only see a TV series based off of Clive Barkers work being on a network like HBO because Hellraiser is known for being extremely graphic. The last thing we need is a watered down version of the iconic Pinhead.
T is for Toilet
If you missed my post about the upcoming anthology film, The ABC’s of Death, then click here to check that out. But first, take a look at one of the short films that will be presented as part of the anthology. There was a contest being held for the letter T and the winner of the contest would get their film added as part of the anthology. How cool is that? Lee Hardcastle, the creator of T is for Toilet, won the competition with his absolutely insane entry. If this is what a badass dude with some clay created can you imagine the insanity the pros will be bringing? Can’t wait. Thanks to my good friend Poiju for giving me a heads up on the video!
As always, thanks for reading. If you missed the last entry of The Missing Reel, click the link below to head over there.
