  • Teaser Poster: Second film from ‘RABIES” duo, “BIG BAD WOLVES”

    by: Samuel Zimmerman on: 2013-02-25 18:34:32

    Co-directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, who wowed audiences a plenty with the slasherless slasher RABIES, return.

    Expectation and anticipation is undoubtedly high for BIG BAD WOLVES, the second feature from the Israeli team of Keshales and Papushado. Their first horror film, RABIES (KALEVET), and a first for Israel, was a witty, surprisingly fresh, dark tale of youth run amok in the woods. It also contained a healthy distrust of authority, which looks to carry over in BIG BAD WOLVES, a film about brutal murders and the three men whose lives are most impacted by them. Twitch revealed the poster and synopsis:

    “A series of brutal murders puts the lives of three men on a collision course: The father of the latest victim now out for revenge; a vigilante police detective operating outside the boundaries of law; and the main suspect in the killings, a religious studies teacher arrested and released due to a police blunder.”

    BIG BAD WOLVES is now in post production.

    “THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS” #1 (Comic Review)

    by: Svetlana Fedotov on: 2013-02-19 21:09:01

    The ghost hunting shenanigans of the four paranormal
    detectives known as GHOSTBUSTERS perfectly melded humor and horror into an
    iconic film still popular today as it was almost 30 years ago. It’s little
    wonder, then that the Ghostbusters has had such a huge marketing appeal,
    ranging anywhere from toys to cartoons, and leaving a very permanent mark on
    the comic market. The franchise has spent years floating from company to company
    (even making a pit stop at Tokyopop for a manga do-over), but it has recently
    planted its feet with industry bad boy IDW. THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS picks up right
    where the IDW GHOSTBUSTERS left off, this time sending our boys in gray
    jumpsuits into a strange world possessed by the unknown.

    NBC teases “HANNIBAL,” the most notorious killer of them all

    by: Samuel Zimmerman on: 2013-02-19 14:02:59

    NBC’s released a look at the delicate working relationship between agent Will Graham and Dr. Hannibal Lecter. It sure doesn’t look like the buddy cop antics we (I) were hoping. 

    From Bryan Fuller (PUSHING DAISIES, HEROES), HANNIBAL seeks to let us in on the procedural days of Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) as he tracks down serial killers with the help of one. As the official synopsis would suggest (twice!) however, Will has little idea what he’s working with: When the mind of the twisted killer he’s pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch. If Will only knew…

    I imagine many will tune in so as to see how the oddly beloved cannibal will translate here. With little affection for any of his incarnations, I imagine Mads Mikkelsen possesses some of the otherworldly, menacing sophistication necessary and will handle it just fine. But with the ever stretching boundaries of television and the fact that the undead regularly eat humans on AMC, will the doctor be dining on liver and the like regularly? April 4th, we find out.
