The horror anthology, The Theatre Bizarre, was a stunning collection of horror shorts, and fans will be very happy to learn that a sequel is indeed in the works. Even better news is that the all French sequel will feature some of the finest people working on horror and extreme films in France right now, so read on for the very exciting details.
Blood Disgusting got the exclusive on the directors, and also got their hands on the first promo poster (below). The site is reporting that Xavier Gens (Frontier(s), The Divide), Olivier Abbou (Territories), Pascal Laugier (Martyrs, The Tall Man), Julien Maury & Alexandre Bustillo (Inside, Livid), Lucile Hadzihalilovic (Innocence, writer of Gaspar Noe’s Enter the Void) and Talal Selhami (Mirages) are all set to direct a segment for the all French horror anthology sequel titled The Theatre Bizarre: Grand Guignol.
Here is what was said about no doubt brilliant and savage sequel:
“After the critical success of the first Theatre Bizarre anthology, it felt only natural to follow yp with another serving of more over-the-top, brutal, visionary, envelope-pushing tales. And this time, carte blanche was given to the creme de la creme of French directors, who were all very happy to take Grand Guignol back to its original birthplace.”
Expect much more as it develops.
