I am so excited about producers David Bond and Manda Manuel’s upcoming horror anthology, The Profane Exhibit. The project promises to be one of the most brutal horrors of 2012, and recently a new director was added to an already impressive list.
Please welcome Richard Stanley to the project, and he will be directing the short film called ‘Coltan’. Staney’s short film is an unflinching look into deepest Africa where unspeakable atrocities are committed, and human life is traded for money.
Sounds like the perfect story to join the already dark and harsh short films. Stanley recently directed one of the segments for anthology The Theatre Bizarre called The Mother of Toads. He has also directed such classics as Hardware and Dust Devil.
The Profane Exhibit is expected to arrive in May 2012. For more on the anthology, click here
Deep within the underbelly of Paris, there is a club which is the home of a secret, wicked society. At first it resembles an ordinary fetish or goth nightclub, but hidden within the cavernous building are many hidden rooms. One of which is known as “The Room of Souls,” a private gathering place of the world’s richest and most evil people. Their host is the elegant yet frightening Madame Sabatier.
For their amusement, each member takes a turn and spins a true tale of their depravity: A good wife learns that her husband goes out at night to abduct and murder young women; A botched suicide attempt leads to a drug induced dream; A girl is believed to be possessed by a demon and her overly religious parents enlist the help of a corrupt reverend who has his own sinister plans; We are invited inside the deranged mind of a respected surgeon as he takes us on a guided tour of life, death, and everything in between; A young street prostitute crosses paths with a charismatic flesh trader and is forced to take an unspeakable journey of sex, violence, and murder; A nun is abducted off the streets of Rome and held captive for over a year turning her into a feral, murderous creature to be unleashed on society; A chance encounter on a fateful bus ride for an unsuspecting girl who dreams of riches and fame is her undoing; A man picks up a woman in a nightclub and soon finds himself at the mercy of a cult of women who believe consumption of their sacrifice will bring them to their highest form of female dominance; An unflinching look into darkest Africa where human life is traded for fortune and the most unspeakable atrocities are committed. It truly is a profane world, and this is THE PROFANE EXHIBIT. There are no boundaries.
