You can feel the air getting electrified. I have updates of two flicks that I’m really excited about; I’ve been following the progress of these films for a while now!! Let’s get to it:
I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE REMAKE TRAILER:
This year’s Creation Weekend of Horrors in Los Angeles revealed more details about the I Spit on Your Grave remake. I was unable to attend this year’s Creation Weekend, but last month I was lucky enough to go to the Texas Frightmare Weekend. There I sat in on a panel discussion of this remake (which also unveiled a few clips and the trailer) and was really impressed with how the film was coming along. Director Steven Monroe was really pushing the envelop with the remake and wasn’t “pussing out” when it came time for the rape scene and violence. The cast was also on hand to talk about how emotionally and physically demanding the shoot was.
I’m looking forward to this one and feel the original was a perfect candidate for a remake. Even though the original had some very disturbing material, the movie itself was pretty poorly executed from a technical level. Enough of my ranting. Here’s the trailer:
HATCHET 2 UPDATE:
Also at the Creation Weekend in Los Angeles was a panel with Adam Green and the Hatchet 2 army. Dreadcentral.com covered the convention and reported that the lucky attendees got to ask the panel questions, and the entire place erupted when Green pulled out 2 clips from the movie. The first clip:
featured two hunters shooting at Victor Crowley when suddenly the veritable freight train of violence appears with a ten-foot redwood chainsaw. From there Crowley swings underneath both hunters, who were standing one in front of the other, catching the duo square in the nuts with the saw, lifting them both off of the ground, and sawing them all the way up through the tops of their heads until their body halves go flying to the ground. Two words, folks … holy shit.
Yeah; holy shit is right!! The second clip:
featured a knock-down, drag-out brawl between Hatchet II‘s two behemoths, R.A. and Kane, who were having a wall-shaking fight that ends with a curb stomp performed on a table that left the literally roaring audience blinking in disbelief.
Best thing yet is, as Green tells us, there was no CGI involved. All the f/x are practical!!! The more I read about Adam Green the more I love him!! As soon as I hear about a release date I’ll pass it along.
