Trailers

I've been making a point lately to send you guys in the direction of Indie horror films that actually look good.

This may be a tad too low budget for my tastes, but I have to give it up for effective trailer editing when I see it.

If you have IFC On Demand, they're currently streaming the Finnish horror film "Sauna". According to IMDB here's the synopsis:

I don't know why, but documentaries on the processes and machinations of making Z-grade horror are like crack to me.

What we have here is some interesting raw footage from an interview with Virginia Madsen, Academy Award nominee and star of Lionsgate's upcoming "The Haunting in Connecticut". Madsen is a pretty fantastic actress, and if you believe this footage, also a huge fan of "scary movies".

I was emailed this recently and thought it was too good to pass up. It's literally, and I mean LITERALLY, one of the greatest things I have ever seen. It's a fake trailer for a film called "Gobstopper" starring Christopher Lloyd (!) Check out the description and the video below...

That title just about says it all, doesn't it? This film is called (naturally) "Black", and here's the trailer. I looked everywhere for a synopsis for you guys but no such luck. I'm pretty sure you can write it yourself though.

The film portion of South by Southwest was last week and a few interesting horror flicks screened at Fantastic Fest at Midnight, the genre-themed festival within a festival.

Times are tough my friends. Working in New York City I see people getting shit canned left and right and there’s no end in sight. So what’s a 41 year old Wall Street investment banker to do when he finds himself out on his ass?
