Welcome to the inaugural edition of our new Coming Attractions blog, where we'll share new trailers with you, then we can all have some coffee & discuss. No big whoop.
Let's kick this off with some good old fashioned exorcisin'. The Crucifixion is made by Xavier Gens, who brought us Frontier(s) (that's good), but as you'll see from the trailer it's brought to us by the producer of Annabelle & The Conjuring 2 (that's bad). No official release date yet, but it's slated to come out in 2017.
Meh. Looks like a lot of jumps scares, though there's some interesting imagery in there. Like that horrendous case of pubic lice! The whole Based on a True Story thing kind of bothers me in movies like this, or The Exorcism of Emily Rose. It's not cool to use real people with epilepsy or mental illness as a springboard for your mediocre horror movies, kids. Remember Auntie Amy told you that.
And now for some real-life horror - another grim Australian ripped from the headlines flick. This one's kind of cheating, as it's available on VOD now. Also because it's more true crime-y than horror-y, if we're being picky about such things. Anyway, I know lots of people who have seen it, & it seems like a tough but worthwhile watch.
That's an intense trailer, no?
Okay, on to something a little newer. This one caught my eye because of its bitchin' title, but lo & behold it's made by Colin Minihan, the director of the Grave Encounters movies. No definite release date for this one yet.
Not too badsies, eh? Can't say I'm dying for another zombie movie, but I'll give it a go. The first Grave Encounters was pretty dece, I thought. Not sure if I watched the second one or not...
Okay, last one - on the opposite end of the cool title spectrum (aka the shitty end) we have Besetment, which comes to VOD June 6.
So, it's an overbearing mother & her son running a hotel, is it? Huh. Seems like well-worn territory to me. And did that suspicious woman just say her name was Millie Coven? Think I'll pass on this puppy.
That'll do it for this, my very first Coming Attractions post. Remember it fondly. Better yet, let me know if you're looking forward to any of these.
