One of film's most unique voices apparently has crafted a haunted house film, and it will be hitting stateside.
Variety reports that Monterey Media has acquired the U.S. rights to Guy Maddin's KEYHOLE, a film which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, but seems to have completely slipped under the radar. A shame, since the promise of Maddin, whose films are often already bizarre and truly something to behold, filming something even remotely in the vein of horror should absolutely be worth noting.
The film is apparently a haunted house tale, which sees Jason Patric (THE LOST BOYS) play "a gangster and deadbeat father who returns home after a long absence and begins a protracted journey through his rotting mausoleum of a house in search of his estranged wife, played by Isabella Rossellini (BLUE VELVET)." The legendary and always-welcome Udo Kier is also among the cast.
The publication adds that the story, "penned by George Toles and Maddin, is loosely based on Homer's THE ODYSSEY and THE POETICS OF SPACE, Gaston Bachelard's 1958 study of the psychological impact produced by one's domestic environs."
The trailer paints something wild, intense and noir-ish! Can't wait.
