Sion Sono, Bruno Samper, Rodney Ascher, Vincenzo Natali, and More Among ABCS OF DEATH 2 Directors

by     Posted 1 year, 217 days ago


Magnet Releasing has announced a slew of directors that will be contributing to the horror anthology sequel ABCs of Death 2, and it’s a fairly diverse lineup.  Like its predecessor, the pic will deliver 26 genre-oriented short films each relating to a different letter of the alphabet.  The producers are branching out of the horror genre for this new host of filmmakers, as Álex de la Iglesia (The Last Circus), Rodney Ascher (Room 237), and animation director Bill Plympton will be helming segments alongside Kristina Buozyte and Bruno Samper (Vanishing Waves), Sion Sono (Cold Fish), Vincenzo Natali (Splice), Marcus Dunstan (The Collection), and many more.

Additional filmmakers are expected to be announced over the next few months, as production will get underway for a planned 2014 release.  The follow-up is described as “a wilder, leaner, faster paced and even more entertaining anthology” than the first film, so hold on to your butts, folks.  Hit the jump to read the press release, which includes the full list of directors announced thus far.

Mildly Insane Red Band Trailer for THE LAST CIRCUS

by     Posted 3 years, 184 days ago


A red band trailer for director Alex de la Iglesia’s (The Oxford Murders) The Last Circus has landed online and it is borderline insane. The film begins in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War and centers on a circus clown who joins a militia and begins dispatching people with max prejudice. From there, the pic moves ahead to 1973 and begins following a “twisted love triangle” involving both Sad Clown and Happy Clown. There really isn’t a lot else to be said about the cut except that it succeeds in peaking my interest in the film (a fact that makes me really question the type of things I’m interested in).

Unless you’re already afraid of clowns (in which case, I apologize for the dual-wielding one pictured above), I suggest you watch the restricted trailer after the jump. Magnolia is releasing The Last Circus, starring Carlos Areces, Antonio de la Torre, and Carolina Bang, to select theaters on August 12th.
