I’ve missed a lot of horror news while i was away from the blog, mainly because the horror scene moves at such a fast pace, films are announced, produced and distributed in such a small time frame that things flew past me faster than …umm… your mum (?)
‘Triangle’ is the new film horror director Christopher Smith, who’s previous films ‘Severance’ and ‘Creep’ I really enjoyed. It stars Melissa George.. who is officially HAWT, but the poster and plot synopsis give me bad vibes, if only because I can see parallels with the Aja/Jack Bauer so-bad-its-just-bad mess that was ‘Mirrors’
TRIANGLE, a unique concept psycholigical-thriller that turns the genre on its head. When Jess hits a seagull on a drive to the local harbour, little does she know that it is a harrowing omen of things to come. She sets sail on a yacht with a group of friends and already things are not as they seem ” she just cant put her finger on why. Her suspicions are heightened when the yacht hits a storm and the group is forced to board a passing ocean liner to get to safety ” a ship Jess is convinced shes been on before. The ship appears deserted, the clock on board has stopped, but they are not alone Someone is intent on hunting them down, one by one. And Jess unknowingly holds the key to end the terror.
hmmmm.. i’m gonna keep an eye on this one, but seen as it’s the film seems more ‘psychological’ (read: boring) than Smith’s other movies, this is going in the ‘maybe’ pile for now.
For another example of things i’d missed…if you don’t include the advances of….your mum… I had literally no clue that 70’s Ozsploitation movie ‘Long Weekend’ has been remade, directed by the guy who did Storm Warning (excellent, under-the-radar aussie horror film) and starring Jim ‘The Passion’ Caviezel (Check the trailer below). and there’s a raft of other things i’m still playing catch-up with too.
