THE HALLOW – Official Trailer

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2015 by smuckyproductions

Here’s another exciting release coming soon from the ever-brilliant folks at IFC Midnight (who released 2014’s masterpiece “The Babadook”): THE HALLOW, directed by Corin Hardy.

This one garnered some impressive attention at this year’s Sundance, though it was up against this year’s most talked-about horror indie, “The Witch.” Most notably, it got Hardy the director’s chair on the upcoming remake of “The Crow.” Considering that news, the response from Sundance, and the fact that the creature effects are 100% practical, I’m placing this at the top of my list.

“The Hallow,” like the other rising star of 2015 “Krampus,” is based on folklore – the Irish legends of wicked, hideous fairies that steal children in the night. Judging from the trailer, these fairies are indeed quite horrifying. It looks like a sick mix between “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” and “The Evil Dead.” I’m beyond excited. Since 2004’s “The Descent,” it doesn’t seem like there’s been a creature feature like this, both gory and harrowingly close to home. Babies are always a touchy subject, after all.

What are your thoughts on the trailer, and how does it stack against the surplus of genre goodies that 2015 seems to be offering?

Official KRAMPUS Trailer Released

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2015 by smuckyproductions

This is some deliriously exciting news.

For most horror fans, 2009’s TRICK ‘R TREAT was the Halloween dream that we didn’t know we were missing. Michael Dougherty made a beautiful name for himself in the horror community, with talks of a sequel and other projects. But then… all news went quiet.

Now, at last, Mr. Dougherty has graced us with yet another holiday-themed horror fest: KRAMPUS, based on one of the weirdest legends out there. For those who aren’t familiar with it already, the trailer gives a decent overview. Basically, it’s the Scandinavian Anti-Claus, stalking around on huge hoofs and sporting awful horns, looking for bad kiddies to punish in while his counterpart spreads cheer.

Judging by the trailer, this looks like a classic horror-comedy in the vein of the last film – meaning, it allows itself to be both funny and scary without sacrificing one over the other. That mix of genre is rarely seen anymore, pushed out by solely ‘so-bad-its-good’ midnight fare.

I’m thrilled to see that the film will follow in the tradition of “Trick ‘R Treat,” in its gleefully messed up story and wacky visuals (see evil teddy bear and jaw-unhinged clown thing in trailer). Perhaps Mr. Krampus and good ol’ Sam are collaborators in this whole follow-the-rules-or-die type of scenario. Here’s to hoping that this film lives up to its predecessor’s success and gives us a good, cheerful bloodfest for Christmas.

Upcoming Film – “Goodnight Mommy”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2015 by smuckyproductions

Fantastically excited for the release of Goodnight Mommy this Friday, at the IFC Center. I’ll be seeing it hopefully that day and posting a review following.

Rumor has it that, at its festival premiers, several audience members had to run out of the theater due to the extremity of the ending. That alone makes it tantalising – the trailer seals the deal, so to speak.

This film seems to be a part of a festival trend, discovering quality, original horror films and bringing them to the mainstream. It occurred last year with “It Follows” and “The Babadook,” arguably the best horror films to come out in this decade. This year we have “Goodnight Mommy” and “The Witch,” among others. I’m hoping this is a start of a trend, paying more attention to indie horror that has a brain (and a heart).

Anyone else excited for this? Leave a comment and let me know what films are on your 2015 list!

Official Carrie Trailer has arrived!

Kimberly Peirce’s reboot of Stephen King’s classic novel is without a doubt one of the most anticipated films of 2013. And, finally, we get a substantial look at what we’ll be getting the third time around.

I’m a huge fan of the book, and enjoyed the 1976 movie a decent amount. When I heard that they were getting Peirce to direct Julianne Moore and Chloe Grace Moretz in the new version, I was unashamedly excited. This trailer is pretty revealing, and while I’m still excited, a few of the clips made me worry. Moretz is a talented actress, but her performance seems a little forced – I’ll withhold judgement until I see the movie, though. Moore, on the other hand, looks great. The prom shots are promising, too.

So, I’m a little nervous, but still stoked to see this movie. It’s a shame they pushed the release date back so far – it would be a perfect spring horror movie. We’ll just have to wait and see what this new take on the classic has to offer.
