We have two new and rather excellent posters here for a couple of highly exciting horror films. Exists is the new found footage Bigfoot horror from Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly), and The Editor is a Giallo homage horror comedy from the Astron-6 fellas.
Exists is a found footage horror directed by Eduardo Sanchez and written by Jamie Nash (Lovely Molly, Seventh Moon, Altered, S-VHS). The film stars Dora Madison Burge, Samuel Davis, Roger Edwards, Chris Osborn and Denise Williamson.
The film was shot on location just outside Austin, Texas at Spiderwood studios. Producers are Robin Cowie, Jane Fleming, Andy Jenkins, and Mark Ordesky with Gregg Hale and Reed Frerichs exec producing.
Back in June 2011, Sanchez had this to say:
“The film is the first in a trilogy exploring and reinventing the Bigfoot myth,” Sanchez said. “We all remember the terror of watching such classics as ‘The Legend of Boggy Creek,’ and I look forward to making Bigfoot scary again.“
Five friends take off for the deep woods of Texas for an epic party weekend. But once there, they come face to face with a vicious beast that may in fact be the legendary Bigfoot. As they fight for survival, they unlock a shocking truth behind a terrifying myth.
Adam Brooks and Matthew Kennedy’s film is said to be a loving tribute to/parody of the gory giallo thrillers of Mario Bava and Dario Argento.
The cast includes veteran horror actor Udo Kier (who has appeared in a number of Giallo’s himself) along with Tristan Risk, Laurence R. Harvey (The Human Centipede 2), Samantha Hill, Paz De La Huerta and Adam Brooks.
A one-time (and now one-handed) master film editor toiling in the cinematic sweatshops of 1970s Italy becomes the prime suspect in a series of brutal murders.
Celluloid Screams have announced the opening film of the festival’s 2014 edition will be ‘The Editor’, the highly anticipated new film from Canadian filmmaking collective Astron-6. The makers of ‘Father’s Day’ and ‘Manborg’ return with their own unique take on the Italian giallo, starring genre icons Udo Kier, Lawrence Harvey and Tristan Risk, which will officially open Celluloid Screams 2014 on Friday 24th October.
Astron-6 co-founders Adam Brooks, Matthew Kennedy and Conor Sweeney will attend the festival as special guests to present ‘The Editor’ and also a retrospective screening of Astron-6 short films, both of which will be followed by Q&As.
Celluloid Screams Festival Director Robert Nevitt said:
“Anyone who has attended Celluloid Screams in the past will know that we have an ongoing obsession with Astron-6, and we’re extremely pleased to be opening our 2014 edition with their most ambitious film to date. As if this wasn’t exciting enough, we’re thrilled to be welcoming Adam, Matt and Conor in person to the festival to showcase their extraordinary body of work ”
