Patrons Faint at Screening of Horror Flick THE INCIDENT!

We never know if we should buy these stories, but reports have come out from the Toronto film festival that several audience members fainted while watching “The Incident”.  A horror film about night-shift workers in an insane asylum during a power outage.

Why doubt it?  Well, it came upon the heels of the announcement that IFC had picked up the film to release under their IFC Midnight banner.  Why else do we doubt it?  We’ve tracked down reports like this before.  They usually end up being demonstrably unrelated to the film.  Another reason we doubt it?  We’re just cynical bastards.

Still … you’re free to judge for yourself …

Latest on HELLRAISER Reboot!

Bloody Disgusting reports the latest on the Hellraiser reboot in an interview with director Patrick Lussier.   Another horror reboot … sigh.  Does this one have a reason for being?  Lussier thinks it does.   The focus will be different, he claims.  And what will that focus be?

Lussier claims the reboot will focus on the Lament Configuration puzzle box and the world it creates:

Yes, the world of the box, the world of what happens within the box and what the box does … I think one of the main things we wanted to do was – Clive has created such a…you know, he’s a real world-builder in everything that he does…all his stories are magnificent…but the ‘Hellraiser’ story feels like you’re only seeing a fragment of what that world is. And because his original ‘Hellraiser’ movie is clearly such a personal film…we talked about it [like it] wasn’t like remaking ‘My Bloody Valentine‘ or something that was very much a great fun movie, original, but at the same time it’s part of a series, like ‘Prom Night’ and ‘Terror Train’. It’s a movie of a time that was created for a specific reason. And with ‘Hellraiser’…we want to be very respectful of the original film and not just try to re-tell that story, because that story exists. You can see that movie any time you want…it’s such a great landmark horror film, obviously, a landmark film by a major artist.

Fans of the franchise will also be pleased with to here that Lussier insists it will be “an R-rated movie” and “it would not be a teen movie”.

What about the cenobites?  Lussier says they’re crucial.  But they will look different:

I will tell you that the original pitch was the look of Pinhead. That’s how we pitched it. But uh…what that is I’m not gonna tell you. But that was very much how we pitched the film.

Is the film in 3D?  Lussier says that hasn’t been decided.  He argues the  “gothic” nature of the material might not be suited to 3D.   Lussier’s current film Drive Angry and his last film My Bloody Valentine are both in 3D.

Kevin Smith Does RED STATE His Way!

Posted in Movies, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Video, Writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 26, 2011 by ghostradioworld

For more than a decade, the movie industry has been muttering about how the Internet, and other new technologies, will change movie distribution for ever.  But so far, that’s mainly all it’s been … muttering.   Sure there’s been Netflix streaming.  But that’s old stuff.  And there’s YouTube.  But that’s “amateur hour”.   Nothing really big has happened.  Nothing major.  No game changers.

So, finally, a filmmaker who’s been talking about this stuff has decided to put his movie where his mouth is.  That filmmaker is Kevin Smith.  And the film is Red State.  A horror film that looks unlike anything Smith has done before.   If you want to hear about exactly what he’s doing, there’s a bunch of podcasts, and a blog entry which explains it all in some detail.  And you can also watch him talk about it to the audience at Sundance below.  And if you don’t care about anything he has to say, but just wanna be part of the fun, click here.

It’s a bold move from Smith.  A bold move.

We don’t know if what he’s doing will work.  We don’t know if the film is any good.  But we applaud his efforts.  He’s hoisting his freak flag, and letting it fly!  More power to him!
