Killer Pizza

Hatchet/Frozen helmer Adam Green will direct a big screen adaptation of Greg Taylor‘s young adult novel Killer Pizza for Chris Columbus‘ 1492 Pictures. The action comedy tells the story of a 14-year-old who gets a summer job at Killer Pizza, which turns out to be a front for a monster-hunting organization.

What excites me most about this film is that it sounds like the kind of films that Columbus was creating in the 1980′s Amblin era of Gremlins and The Goonies. Also, while I have yet to see Green’s Hatchet, I was impressed with his contained three person single-location thriller Frozen, which premiered at Sundance.

Frozen Movie Trailer

Frozen

Hatchet writer/director Adam Green‘s Frozen is a single-room thriller set on a ski-resort chairlift. The story follows three college students (Emma Bell, Shawn Ashmore, Kevin Zegers) who are mistakenly stranded on a chairlift, and are “forced to make life-or-death choices that prove more perilous than staying put and freezing to death.” Last week we posted a few photos and poster from the film. Today we bring you the movie trailer, embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Director Paul Solet made a lot of fans with his effective dead baby shocker Grace, which premiered at Sundance this year. Now he’s taking part in a short film project by Hatchet director Adam Green. The result is Jack Chop, an infomercial selling a useful and dangerous bit of Halloween gadgetry. Watch it after the break. But be warned, in addition to being fairly tasteless (that’s a compliment!) this is pretty NSFW if you’re stuck in a workplace that doesn’t approve of copious blood and screamed profanity.

I’ll tell you up front that the Splice video is not online and I’ll just be telling you about it, though it was rather marvelous and really very exciting and I’ll try and convey that. The others, though, are embedded after the break – An American Douchebag in London part 1, Eli Roth‘s commercial for Peta and some Survival of the Dead publicity.

The 10th anniversary Frightfest is underway in London, and for once I’m not in the cheap seats. Ladies and gentlemen – I think I have finally arrived. The atmosphere in the virtually packed out Empire Leicester Square has been electric – buzzing like a chainsaw, even. Weekend pass holders abound, a genuine spirit of camaraderie prevails and there’s already a good vibe passing back and forth amongst us that we’re in for the best Frightfest yet.

VOTD: Lingerie Lightsaber Fight

This mock commercial written and directed by Adam Green, who also directed the 2006 horror film Hatchet, was just an excuse to get two beautiful women (Rileah Vanderbilt and Clare Grant) fighting with lightsabers in their underwear. I’m surprised that no one had come up with this idea sooner (especially with the abundance of Star Wars-inspired fan films out there).

I know I’ve already said in previous posts that I’d be leaving all of the Sundance updates to Peter seeing as he’s actually there and I’m here, half a world away in Oxford, England, and only dreaming of Skiing, Mormons and four-films-a-day exhaustion, but this one is of particular interest to me so I wanted to chip in on it.  I’m not sure if there’s more to this story than meets the eye, or if there’s even less, but either way I think it warrants discussion.

Last night, Paul Solet‘s horror film Grace was premiered at The Egyptian Theatre, Park City, Utah. During the question and answer session after the film, one of the festival volunteers declared “Must have been a good movie because we had two people faint during the screening”; sometime later, the film’s producer, Adam Green, sent an e-mail to ShockTillYouDrop, thus: “Two faints. One outside and one in the lobby. Egyptian owner confirmed that in 10 years it’s the first time it’s happened. Amazing screening.”
