serial killer

The Coroner

In scouring Netflix Instant for some horror to watch, I flicked past Lucky, a film starring Colin Hanks and Jeffrey Tambor. Normally, a Colin Hanks film is enough reason for me to keep looking, especially when the cover looks like Photoshop vomit with fake bodies, fake props, and money flying everywhere. What is this? After reading the description though, I figured I’d give it a shot. Hanks stars as Ben Keller, an ‘aspiring serial killer’ who runs into a bit of lucky when he unknowingly murders a woman who just purchased a winning lottery ticket. Well, he knowingly murders her. He just didn’t know about the winning lottery ticket she had. With his new found fortune, Keller wrestles with his desire to kill while courting his long-time crush, a money hungry hottie he grew up with.

Alexander Aja continues his work with remakes as the producer of a forthcoming remake of William Lustig‘s brilliant Maniac – whose ultra-violence caused Gene Siskel to famously storm out of the theater and rail against it on his show with Roger Ebert. The movie will be directed by Franck Khalfoun – a talent who delivered the parking garage stalker flick P2 and who has an extra C in his first name. News of a remake, especially something as grisly and revered as this movie, needs some sort of sugar to help the medicine go down. The sugar this time is Elijah Wood – a giant spoonful of happy feet who will be stepping well outside his wheelhouse to play the serial killer. Say what you will about his role in Sin City, but that was not the blood-soaked mayhem and confusion that this murdering character demands. They are as different as the black and white Wood was painted with as Kevin, the silent cannibal. Also, in a strange turn of rumored events, Badass Digest is reporting that unnamed sources are claiming the movie (or at least its kills) will be shot POV. It’s an interesting, if unoriginal, idea, and it could very well work beautifully. The only real concern is when the camera will cut away (if it’s just the kills in POV), because so much of Maniac was brought to life by Joe Spinell‘s performance. He killed without mercy or understanding, and him staring on at his own work […]

Gone, which will be the first English language film for Brazilian director Heitor Dhalia, is the story of a survivor of a serial killer abduction who returns home from a late night job to find that her sister has gone missing. She believes the cause of the disappearance is the same psycho who had taken her years before coming back to pull some similar sick shit, but unfortunately the police don’t really believe that this is the case. So the young girl finds herself having to take matters into her own hands, track down the guy who put her through a traumatic ordeal, and get her sister back before it is too late. Producer Tom Rosenberg says that Amanda Seyfried is the “perfect actress to play the smart and fearless heroine in Gone.” Man, can that guy sell or what? I’m in! Truthfully, all of this sounds pretty uninteresting. The news only appealed to me because I happen to be a huge fan of Seyfried. The few things she’s done that are good have really given her a platform to shine, and even the loads of crap she has made always looks way better for having her involved. What pure filth like Dear John and Jennifer’s Body and mixed bags like Chloe have in common is that Amanda Seyfried is the best thing going in all of them. Plus she is just really beautiful. Like astoundingly beautiful. And now we can post a great big picture of her for everyone […]
