Just a quick one today, as I have to take off into town for the day. Here's what I got for ya.
Coming to ABC.
Here's a trailer courtesy Bloody-Disgusting for the upcoming series The River created by Paranormal Activity's Oren Peli.
As you can see it sports an impressive cast, but not I'm sure if this formula can be spread over an entire season or more. The PA series is about building suspense & dread and I'd have trouble feeling that week-to-week and between commercials. It also looks there like there might be a built-in drinking game, involving people being thrown backwards into the camera lens. I'll give it a few episodes anyway.
Say Good Night To The Bad Guy.
My buddy Darryl contributed a great article to The Cultural Gutter this week. He uses his review of Human Centipede 2 to speak about the current state of horror. Here's a snip.
"It is a perfectly executed film. I challenge you to name a recent horror movie that was more effective. I’ve seen A Serbian Film – while genuinely disturbing, I have to say HC2 does so much more without breaking a sweat, or ever feeling self-conscious. I look at this year’s critically-acclaimed Kill List – a great film in its own right, with a fully developed story with pristine character arcs, brilliant dialogue, a knockout in so many ways–and yet I feel HC2 buries that with sheer visceral firepower."
