Here is a compilation of some of the stuff that mattered to me this week whether it be good or bad. This week we take a look at Kane Hodder’s return as Victor Crowley, some great new posters, and an insane bunny with a chainsaw. Enjoy.
First Look, ‘At Silver Falls’
Here is the first still for director Brett Donowho’s upcoming thriller, At Silver Falls which is inspired by a true-story of the unsolved murders of two twin girls. Here is what the director had to say about the upcoming film:
“At Silver Falls is as much a mystery thriller as it is a horror film. The emphasis is on story and character development, rather than the sudden scary jumps and visual effects often associated with the genre. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of those as well!”
Check out the creepy picture below.
Kane Hodder returns for ‘Hatchet III’
Great news for Hatchet fans. Kane Hodder will be returning to Adam Green’s slasher throwback film Hatchet as Victor Crowley. It’s great to see Hodder returning as the swamp killer for the third time and joining him will be Danielle Harris who began her Hatchet career with the second installment as Marybeth.
Hatchet III will pick up immediately after the second film ends, “as a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and Marybeth learns the secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.”
Eli Roth’s Goretorium
Eli Roth has been behind a top secret project that has finally been unveiled. On September 27th in Sin City, Eli Roth and Robert Frey will open, “Eli Roth’s Goretorium” which is going to be a high tech year round haunted house that Roth intends to be the “world mecca for horror fans.”
“My favorite time of the year is Halloween, and my favorite halloween event is the haunted mazes,” said Roth. “There’s just nothing you can compare them to, it’s an all encompassing live scare. I want Halloween to be every night of the year. Horror is a year round global experience. It’s not just in October anymore. We are building the world mecca for horror fans, incorporating the latest technology with old fashioned scares.”
In the downstairs area they pan to have a bar and movie prop and costume museum, with a horror themed bar upstairs with caged zombie dancers to top it all off.
Posters for ‘The Possession’, ‘Juan of the Dead’, ‘Final Girl’, and ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’
Last week the first image for the horror film based on a real-life haunted box The Possession was released and now they have just released the first official poster for the film and it looks great.
This next poster is pretty awesome and comes to us from Cuba where they made this ridiculous zombie filmed cleverly named Juan of the Dead.
“The zombie world has yet to witness one last stand – Cuba. An outbreak hits the island on the anniversary of the revolution, so Juan and his friends set out to conquer the undead who, according to government reports, are unruly Americans continuing their quest of undermining the regime.”
And finally, here is the great Simon Peg in his whitey-tighties in this awesome new poster from his upcoming psychological comedy, A Fantastic Fear of Everything.
In the film, “Jack (Simon Pegg) is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his ‘big break’ rapidly turns into his ‘big breakdown’, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.”
This next poster is by far my favorite and it comes from a filmed by Tyler Shields called Final Girl. The film follows a pack of feral teenage boys who choose the wrong girl to be the victim in their final initiation. Currently Shields is still trying to get the slasher off the ground and casting is still underway. At least we have this insane poster to grab our attention.
Tom Cruise as Van Helsing
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci along with Universal have announced that they will be re-imagining Van Helsing with Tom Cruise attached to star in and produce the film.
Bunnyman 2 Trailer Reeks of Insanity
If you plan of having nightmares of a grown ass man wearing a bunny costume that runs around with a chainsaw like Leatherface, then check out the below trailer. I wasn’t overly impressed with the trailer because there is some very iffy acting going on with some hardcore B-movie style gore. This might be one of those films thats so bad it’s good. It is, however, worth watching the trailer just to see the Bunnyman because it’s absolutely ridiculous. Take a look.
There you have it, some of the stuff that mattered to me this week. If you missed last weeks edition of The Missing Reel, check it out here.
As always, thanks for reading.
