    Two New “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2″ TV Spots

    FilmDistrict has been forceful in their unleashing of clips, spots and trailers for the upcoming sequel to James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s  fantastic 2011 creeper. It makes sense, of course, considering Wan just had a monster hit with the also fantastic THE CONJURING. It also seems appropriate considering INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 looks to be something of a forceful, assaulting film. The latest brief previews show off an expected style-heavy film with a funhouse, forward motion tone.

    Trailer: Jim Mickle’s eerie reimagining of “WE ARE WHAT WE ARE”

    STAKE LAND director Jim Mickle and co-writer/actor Nick Damici have recrafted Jorge Michel Grau’s excellent Mexican cannibal film WE ARE WHAT WE ARE . Once a story about masculinity and extreme poverty, Mickle and Damici have transported the tale to the U.S. and made a worthy companion, finding their own themes and aesthetic throughout. Both that picturesque American Gothic and the strong undercurrent of American tradition are on display in the film’s first trailer.

    In WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, the rural Parker family loses their matriarch in an illness and weather-spurred tragedy. It’s the weekend of an annual religious ritual however, and the now-in-charge Iris (Ambyr Childers) and her younger sister Rose (Julia Garner, ELECTRICK CHILDREN) must grapple with whether to break tradition, a forceful hurricane and a neighbor who’s begun to uncover their secret.

    I loved WE ARE WHAT WE ARE out of Sundance and still think it’s one of the best horror films this year. EOne releases this grim, beautiful picture on September 27. IGN premiered the trailer. For more, see Fango’s review and the film’s official Facebook.

    “THE BURNING” (Blu-ray/DVD Review)

    THE BURNING is one of those movies that, for years, was as noted for what it wasn’t as much as for what it was. Which is to say, it was one of the most celebrated casualties of the MPAA’s scissors from the slasher-happy early 1980s, in no small part because the carnage that was cut was created by gore FX master Tom Savini. The loss of these money shots helped build up a bit of a mystique about THE BURNING, before it was finally restored for DVD several years back; it’s now out on a Blu-ray/DVD combo from Shout! Factory.
