Lots of horror trailers released this week, and below we’ll get started with Candyman director Bernard Rose’s Frankenstein, and the hotly anticipated slasher Summer Camp, from executive producer Jaume Balaguero ([Rec]).
Frankenstein is a modern adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel.
Bernard Rose directed from his original script based on the Mary Shelley’s classic novel. Xavier Samuel stars as the Monster, with Carrie-Ann Moss as Elizabeth Frankenstein, Danny Huston as Victor Frankenstein, and Tony Todd as Eddie, reuniting with his Candyman director Rose.
Special Effects Make-up was designed by six-time Emmy nominee Randy Westgate (X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
Frankenstein is set in present day Los Angeles and told entirely from the perspective of the Monster. After he is artificially created, then left for dead by a husband-and-wife team of eccentric scientists, Adam is confronted with nothing but aggression and violence from the world around him. This perfect creation-turned disfigured monster must come to grips with the horrific nature of humanity.
Summer Camp is directed by Alberto Marini, and produced by Jaume Balaguero ([Rec]), the cast includes Jocelin Donahue (House of the Devil), Alex Gonzalez (X-Men: First Class), Diego Boneta ([Rec] 3) and Maiara Walsh (Zombieland).
When Darren, Michelle, Will and Christy signed up to work as camp counselors, they had visions of a fun-filled summer in an exciting foreign country. During their last hours of “freedom” before the camp opens its doors, the young counselors are determined to have a night they’ll never forget –and they won’t be disappointed…
Before the party’s even gotten underway, things get ugly, very ugly… A silent infection spreads, a friend snaps without prior notice. A savage game of cat and mouse ensues, it’s unclear who is afflicted and who is not, and the pursuer can become the pursued in the blink of an eye.
Welcome to Summer Camp.
