oxygen trailer

Crawl director Alexandre Aja moves from a crawlspace to a cryogenic pod with Oxygen, a new thriller headed to Netflix. Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds) plays a woman who wakes up in an extremely high-tech pod and discovers she has no memory of who she is or how she ended up here. To make matters worse, she’s unable to get out of the pod – and her oxygen is running out by the second. Can she remember who she is and find a way out before it’s too late? Watch the Oxygen trailer below.

French filmmaker Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) seems to have taken a liking to small spaces. Following his surprisingly solid 2019 horror movie Crawl, Aja is going even more claustrophobic with his new Netflix thriller Oxygen, a film starring Mélanie Laurent as a woman who wakes up in a cryogenic chamber with no memory and a quickly diminishing air supply. Watch the Oxygen teaser below.

Elijah Alexandre Aja

Crawl director Alexandre Aja has a new horror movie in the works: Elijah. The Searchlight Pictures film involves a young boy who invites a mysterious man into his house, which in turn results in “disturbing things.” Yeah, that’ll happen. The movie originated as a pitch from The Last Witch Hunter writer Cory Goodman, with Gregory Levasseur now handling the script.

Quibi still exists, and it just announced a potentially exciting new project. The streaming service devoted to short-form entertainment is developing a show based on the Japanese horror manga Tomie. Crawl and High Tension filmmaker Alexandre Aja is set to direct, while Chilling Adventures of Sabrina cast member Adeline Rudolph is set to star. In the series, a girl goes missing, her body later found dismembered. That’s creepy enough, but to make things extra unsettling, the dead girl later turns up at school alive and well, and acting as if nothing happened.

o2 cast

Noomi Rapace has been wildly underserved by Hollywood, despite consistently turning out fantastic performances since her breakout role in the 2009 Swedish-language The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. After a stint in blockbuster supporting roles as the go-to global presence, Rapace has found a niche in solid, but also underseen, thrillers. Hopefully her next role in the Black List thriller O2, which is directed by Amityville: Awakening director Franck Khalfoun and produced by Crawl director Alexandre Aja, won’t meet the same fate.

interactive haunted house movie

A group of talented horror creators are teaming up for a project that will either be ground-breaking or an absolute mess – I can’t decide which. Alexandre Aja, director of this summer’s fun killer gator fright flick Crawl, is teaming with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin to create an interactive haunted house movie. The choose-your-own-adventure-style film will be penned by Haunting of Hill House writer Jeff Howard, along with Nick Simon, and Aja, from an idea by Hill House director Mike Flanagan.

alexandre aja interview

Alexandre Aja learned firsthand the difficulties of making a water-based movie with 2010’s Piranha 3D, a well-received loose remake of 1978 horror classic. But nine years later, and the French filmmaker learned that all over again, the hard way.

“When I did Piranha, I got firsthand experience on…everything that was told about the making of Jaws was true and how like a nightmare it was to shoot with water on the water,” Aja said at the press junket for Crawl held at the Long Island Aquarium. “And I guess I forgot in between. And I went back, you know, and then as soon as I went back in the water, I was like, oh, what was I thinking about? And I’m sure we’ll forget again.”

crawl review

A congregation of hungry gators are on the hunt in CrawlAlexandre Aja‘s gory B-movie that doesn’t quite want to admit it’s a B-movie. Moving at a brisk pace, and trimmed of almost all fat, Crawl manages to make a big splash, generating plenty of disaster-movie-meets-monster-movie chills. Yet Crawl is a film with an identity crisis. It’s not quite trashy enough to be an amusing B-movie, and one can’t help but think that Aja is taking all of this killer alligator stuff way too seriously. That’s not to say there isn’t fun to be had.

crawl trailer

What happens when you flood a house during a hurricane, and then throw some alligators into the mix? You get Crawl, a new, deliciously goofy horror-thriller from producer Sam Raimi and director Alexandre Aja. The high-concept premise traps a young woman (Kaya Scodelario) and her father (Barry Pepper) in a house during a Florida hurricane. The house is slowly filling up with water, but that’s the least of their problems. A congregation of alligators (I looked it up – that’s the term for a group of gators) has invaded the water-logged residence, and they’re hungry. Watch the Crawl trailer below.
