The 2012 Sundance Film Festival has just revealed the seven
titles for its Park City at Midnight section, and it’s a pretty horror-centric
bunch this year. Among them is a movie repping a collaboration between a number
of hot up-and-coming genre filmmakers.
That project is V/H/S, directed by Adam Wingard of A
HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE and YOU’RE NEXT, THE SIGNAL’s David Bruckner, THE HOUSE OF
THE DEVIL and THE INNKEEPERS’ Ti West, I SELL THE DEAD’s Glenn McQuaid,
mumblecore veteran Joe Swanberg and Radio Silence, written by NEXT’s Simon
Barrett, Bruckner, West, McQuaid and Radio Silence and starring Swanberg,
Wingard, Calvin Reeder, Sophia Takal and Kate Lyn Sheil. The movie is framed by
a group of misfits hired by a mysterious third party to break into a house in
search of a VHS tape with frightening contents.
Also part of the Midnight slate are GRABBERS (pictured
above), directed by TORMENTED’s John Wright and scripted by Kevin Lehane, set
on an island off the Irish coast that’s invaded by bloodsucking aliens—which,
the residents learn, can be repelled by having a high blood-alcohol content;
BLACK ROCK, directed by THE FREEBIE’s Kate Aselton from a script by Mark
Duplass, starring Aselton, Lake Bell and STRAW DOGS’ Kate Bosworth as three
friends fighting for their lives on an island off the coast of Maine; EXCISION
(pictured below), written and directed by Richard Bates Jr. and starring
AnnaLynne McCord as a high-school student with a twisted surgical obsession, with
a great supporting cast including Traci Lords, John Waters, Malcolm McDowell
and Ray Wise; and writer/director Nicholas McCarthy’s THE PACT, about a woman
trying to come to grips with her past following her mother’s death while
dealing with a menacing presence in her childhood home, starring DEATH VALLEY’s
Caity Lotz, Caspen Van Dien and THE WOODS’ Agnes Bruckner.
The 2012 Sundance fest takes place January 19-29 in Park
City, Utah; keep your eyes here for more on these movies.
