Hello all. I hope your Easter festivities are going well. Here are some rotten little eggs from this past week. Enjoy!
Kane is Coming.
It was announced this week that my friend Serena Whitney, in collaboration with Justin McConnell of Unstable Ground, have optioned the rights to the 1990 novel, Kane by Douglas Borton. Genre veterans Adam Mason (Blood River, Devil's Chair) & George Mihalka (My Bloody Valentine) are on board as consulting producers, as well as Avi Federgreen (Still Mine).
It's always to great to see your friends realize their dreams, and this has some great potential. Kane tells the story of a lone traveller who comes to the small town of Tuskett with one goal in mind - kill everyone of its twenty-three inhabitants!

Here below, is the trailer for the Argentinian love-letter to the giallo, Sonno Profondo.
It is gorgeous to be sure, but that narration makes it feel like it is supposed to be a parody, rather than an emulation. That is unless it is supposed to be a parody... In that case, good job! Sonno Profondo aka Deep Sleep screened at last year's Sitges Film Festival in Spain.
A new teaser has surfaced for Eli Roth's new flick Green Inferno.
I saw this last year at TIFF and I still maintain it to be an authentic rendition of the subgenre. If you are at all a fan of the works of Deodato and Lenzi, this is a must watch. The tribe they used in the film are fantastic and there are some top notch set pieces that won't disappoint the gorehounds.
