Haunter is the new horror/thriller from Vincenzo Natali, who last gave us the crazy creature feature Splice. The film stars Abigail Breslin as a young woman trapped in her house, threatened by a murderous presence and plagued by visions of other victims that have fallen prey to the true owner of the home in which she’s bound.
Check out the first trailer below, which culminates with a nicely chilling appearance from Stephen McHattie as the man Breslin’s character has ample reason to fear. Read More »
French director Pascal Laugier got an international reputation for his film Martyrs, which was the ne plus ultra of torture porn films, a movie that found a weird salvation in a devastatingly a tormented character. Laugier’s follow-up has been a long time coming, thanks in part to a flirtation with the Hellraiser remake.
After rolling out to some festivals, his new film The Tall Man is ready to hit US shores, and we’ve got an early look at the film thanks to a French trailer. This is a very different film from Martyrs, as it casts Jessica Biel in a much softer thriller that has vague echoes of Silent Hill. There’s a small town, an old evil, and even Jodelle Ferland, who played a key role in the original Silent Hill film. The film has faced middling reviews at festivals, and not just because it isn’t as crazy as Martyrs. But we can hope that it might have been tightened up just a bit before the wide release.
