Upcoming Spanish Horror: EXORCISMUS
Synopsis: Fifteen-year-old Emma Hawkins is like any other teenage girl; she thinks that her parents don’t understand her. She longs for independence and a life free of family ties and responsibilities and she is prepared to do anything to achieve it. But one day she will be forced to face up to the consequences of her actions. Life seems to be carrying on as normal, until one day Emma starts experiencing frightening fits. Her parents are convinced that her problems are either medical or psychological, but when doctors´ tests are unable to draw any conclusions, the family is forced to look elsewhere for answers. It all started off as a bit of fun, Emma never really believed it, but the truth is there is something dark and sinister within her, and it won’t take long to surface.
Don’t fall in love with that title as it may be changed in the U.S. to The Possession of Emma Evans which, in my opinion, is too basic, plain and boring. The film is to be directed by Manuel Carballo and stars Sophie Vavasseur (Resident Evil: Apocalypse), Tommy Bastow and Doug Bradley (Hellraiser).
Interesting thing about this movie is that although it is a Spanish production, the film will be in English. Take a look at some screen shots below:
Scream 4… and 5… and 6!!
Just got a tweet from Mr. Wes Craven himself (I hope) that Kevin Williamson, who revitalized the “horror” genre with the original Scream (as well as their sequels), is on board for Scream, 4,5 and 6! If you’re a fan of the franchise this is good news, if you’re not, then too bad!
Paranormal Activity 2: What Did You Expect?
Ok, so this is one of those things that you had to see coming. Despite there being a mixed bag of emotions regarding this film, (loved it, hated it, egh it was OK) one cannot deny the fact that this movie certainly raked in the money from an unsuspecting general public who, and let’s face it, expected so much more from this movie. I have to admit, that I did enjoy this movie even though I had to sit in the movie theater and endure hundreds of nervous snickering teen-aged little girls. Ugh, it was scarier than the movie! Frankly, the hype of this movie is what murdered it, but then again, the hype is what gained the film notoriety and fame. If you haven’t seen the first Paranormal Activity ( and if you haven’t… really?) I suggest you stop reading now as there may be some spoilers ahead.
With Tod (Kip) Williams slated to direct the next installment of this movie (franchise maybe?), I couldn’t help myself but to ask the very same question I’m sure many of you are asking at this precise moment, “Who?!?” Exactly, but a quick search on IMDB quickly made me ask, yet again, “Who?!?” Yes, it is an unknown, but then again, so was Oren Peli, the director of the original film. Thus far, and we’ll have to wait until after Paranormal Activity 2 is released, the only saving grace of this “Kip” is the fact that he is a native of NYC. Rejoice!
So now the only other question I was left with asking was, how are they going to make a sequel out of this movie? There is no doubt that Hollywood will come up with just about any type of plot-line just to make a sequel and make more money out of this beast (see Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 AKA atrocity of a movie). No matter what, this movie is getting made, and that is a fact as contracts have already been signed.
- Couple terrorized by what is thought to be a ghost
- Alleged ghost turns out to be demon (yikes!)
- Demon possesses Katie
- Katie Kills her boyfriend, Micah (theatrical version)
- Katie goes BOO and “scares” aforementioned little girls
That’s it! So where is there a sequel? Well, it’ll soon be in someone’s wallet. Details as to the plot are hush, hush by the way. Get ready for another cavalcade of over-hype!
