Ti West is a horror director that can do no wrong. Apart from the dodgy Cabin Fever 2, the talented director has been improving with every film. To go from The Roost to the superb House of the Devil and the much hyped and well received The Innkeepers, the director is a real force to be reckoned with in the world of horror. He also has a short film in both The ABC’s of Death and V/H/S due this year!
Todays news is just fantastic, and the director is about to embark on a project not 100% horror, but still with a nasty edge to it. The Side Effect is his latest classic, and with the gorgeous Liv Tyler signed up to star, I can only see great things coming from this film. Arrowinthehead.com got a hold of the synopsis:
“In THE SIDE EFFECT, Tyler will play Catherine Rigby, a woman who spends several months alone in space as an experimental subject for a global pharmaceutical company, and finds herself inexplicably pregnant. Paranoia and hysteria reign as the truth behind conception grows more elusive and she remains stranded in space”
How bloody cool does that sound? Oh Ti West you do know how to please us horror fans! Here is what the director recently said about the film:
“Although it is still somewhat of a horror film, it is much more psychological than any of my previous efforts… It was essential that I find an actress who could portray a wide range of emotion and always earn the audience’s sympathy no matter what the situation. As soon as I sat down with Liv, it was obvious she was the one.”
More on this, naturally, as it develops!
