‘Goodnight Mommy’ Already Set For English-Language Remake

Goodnight Mommy, an Austrian horror film originally released to the US in 2015, is set to begin filming an English-language remake in the 3rd quarter of 2019. The film was highly popular upon its release and seemed to garner as many haters as it did proponents, much like any critically-successful horror movie of the past decade. With a […]

Name That Trauma:: Invader on a Talking Box, a Holiday Ride and a Trap Door

Greetings uncle Lancifer I have two movies I can’t think of the title right now. I could do with some help.

1. This one premiered on Chiller it is about a group of people that got stuck in an open house, and can’t leave it. All I can recall is one scene with a box you pressed that said hello welcome to blah blah blah take a look around. They also try to drive away from the property to always come back to it.

2. Also premiered on Chiller, it is a holiday horror film, where they are taking a shortcut to a relatives house and they die one by one, and there is a black car that keeps passing or following them.

3. Another horror film that has this trap door like thing in a basement that is shallow and one person dies by being pulled into/crushed into it. I for the life of me can’t think of the name of it.

Many thanks, invader.

STARFISH (East Coast Premiere)

USA | 2018 | 101 Min | Dir. A.T. White

Presented by Brooklyn Fireproof Stages

Stricken with grief, Aubrey is having a difficult time coping with the death of her best friend, Grace. To combat the overwhelming sadness, she breaks into Grace’s apartment and quietly picks up where her late friend left off, caring for her pets and using her possessions, not to mention sleeping in her bed. The next morning, though, everything’s changed. The streets outside are desolate, fires engulf the city, and people are being attacked by something inhuman. There’s only one person who can potentially save the world: Aubrey, thanks to clues found on mixtapes left by Grace.

An endlessly creative gambit that fuses multiple genres, including cosmic horror, director A.T. White’s STARFISH is one of the most ambitious feature debuts in years. It’s also one of the year’s best films, an emotionally potent, frequently terrifying, and wholly disorienting mash-up of a film that plays like ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND as remixed by H.P. Lovecraft.

Director A.T. White in attendance

WELCOME TO MERCY (World Premiere)

USA | 2018 | 104 Min | Dir. Tommy Bertelsen

After returning to her family’s native Latvia to mourn her father’s death, American single mother Madaline begins suffering from inexplicable visions and physical scars, all of which point to the gift—or curse, rather—the Holy Stigmata. To seek help, Madaline travels to an island convent and ingratiates herself within the sisterhood of nuns. But much to her detriment, Madaline’s new acquaintances pray to something far more sinister than the Holy Spirit, leading her to realize that those newfound afflictions come from anywhere but Heaven.

Providing an effectively retro spin on modern religious horror, WELCOME TO MERCY utilizes the best sacrilegious genre tropes, everything from evil nuns to weaponized crosses, to weave a powerful story of tested faith and hard-earned redemption. Anchored by a fierce performance from lead actress Kristen Ruhlin, who also wrote the screenplay, WELCOME TO MERCY packs a serious punch.

IN FABRIC (East Coast Premiere)

UK | 2018 | 118 Min | Dir. Peter Strickland

There’s something off about the vintage department store in which single mother Sheila finds herself looking for a fancy new dress. The store’s employees are nearly robotic in their stone-faced dedication to sales, the mannequins seem to be whispering to one another, women nearly trample each other to enter as its doors, and its television commercials are hypnotically sinister. Nevertheless, Sheila buys a lavish red dress. Little does she know, her life will soon be overcome by a series of random misfortunes, supernatural phenomena, and living nightmares. And, it seems, the dress is to blame.

Having already proven his singular merits with the giallo-minded brain-scrambler BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO and the gorgeously erotic DUKE OF BURGUNDY, British filmmaker Peter Strickland ups the ante with IN FABRIC, his most awe-inspiring film to date. Combining the aesthetics and influences of his two previous films into a barrage of visually dazzling surrealism, IN FABRIC is an inventive, unsettling and mesmerizing ghost story about the doomed pursuit of happiness. Cynicism has rarely been this stunning.

THE WIND (East Coast Premiere)

USA | 2018 | 87 Min | Dir. Emma Tammi

A devastating scene sets the stage for a haunting account of demonic terror on the American frontier in the 1800’s. Lizzy and Isaac welcome a couple, Emma and Gideon from Illinois, who take up residence in a nearby abandoned cabin. Not long after, Emma fears she is being hunted down by an evil spirit who wants her unborn baby and violently succumbs to her mania. This event reawakens Lizzy’s buried memories of her encounters with the demons on the land and when Isaac leaves to accompany Gideon back to Illinois, Lizzy is left alone to wage battle against the evil on the land.

Emma Tammi’s narrative feature debut makes astoundingly affective use of the American Western frontier. The wide open, barren and desolate wastelands combined with the atmospheric sounds of the elements and unrelenting gusts of wind (or are they whispers from the dead?) create a sense of helplessness unmatched by the claustrophobia of a haunted house and makes a strong case that we need more western horror films in our lives.

Director Emma Tammi in attendance

POSSUM (US Premiere)

UK | 2018 | 85 Min | Dir. Matthew Holness

Following an undisclosed shame, former puppeteer Philip returns to his shabby Norfolk childhood home and only surviving family member, gratingly unpleasant stepfather Maurice. Hanging off the edge of his own sanity, Philip tries to destroy his horrid memories which are encapsulated in the form of Possum, a large and hideous spider puppet. But Possum only pretends to be dead.

Under-appreciated character actor Sean Harris (recently recognizable as MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE antagonist Solomon Lane) stars with an insanely nuanced and chilling portrayal of isolation and trauma. Shot on 35mm with a fittingly yellow-and-brown-rotted palette and a puppet that delivers some seriously disturbing imagery, writer-director Matthew Holness’ first feature is a twisted psychological thriller that deep-dives into a bleak surrealist nightmare.

PARTY HARD, DIE YOUNG (North American Premiere)

Austria | 2018 | 93 Min | Dir. Dominik Hartl

To celebrate graduating from high school, Julia and her classmates take off for a party-resort in Croatia to experience the banger to end all bangers. As the epic party rages on, Julia’s best friend Jessica mysteriously disappears leaving nothing but a suspicious text and a Snapchat photo with her face scratched out. Then another friend slips off a roof to her death—and Julia receives another Snapchat photo. Uh oh.

Energetic and aesthetically gorgeous (mostly shot at the actual X-Jam Festival), Austrian director Dominic Hartl’s glossy homage to ‘90s teen slasher films is high on style while choosing to embrace new age connectivity when so many recent genre films would rather run from it, updating the slasher for the iPhone and EDM generation.

THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER (East Coast Premiere)

USA | 2018 | 109 Min | Dir. Duncan Skiles

Young churchgoing boy scout Tyler’s reputation takes a hit when his crush finds a pornographic bondage picture in his dad’s truck, believing it to be his. Ostracized from his group of friends, he falls in with Kassi, a teenage orphan obsessed with the Clovehitch Killer, a serial killer with a penchant for the clove hitch knot who once terrorized their town and was never found. After discovering more photos hidden in his dad’s work shed he’s left to fear the worst.

Rising talent Charlie Plummer is excellent as the innocent Tyler, but it’s Dylan McDermott playing his father, Don, who really owns the film with his paternal suburban transformation that’s every bit as campy and creepy as you would hope it to be. Directed by newcomer Duncan Skiles and written by Christopher Ford, frequent collaborator of Jon Watts on films such as CLOWN and COP CAR, this small town thriller has a sinister edge and sports an exciting narrative device that flips the story on its head.

GHOST MASK: SCAR (US Premiere)

South Korea | 2018 | 81 Min | Dir. Takeshi Sone

Miyu travels from Japan to Seoul, Korea trying to track down her older sister who has been missing for two years. Shortly after she arrives she meets plastic surgeon Hana, who invites her home to meet her lover Hyoshin. The three women cohabitate as Miyu’s search for her sister intensifies meanwhile Hyoshin, haunted by disturbing nightmares, becomes suspicious of Hana and Miyu’s relationship.

A tragic story of two Japanese sisters separated at childhood and plagued by jealousy, negligence and abandonment, GHOST MASK: SCAR is directed and shot by prolific cinematographer Takeshi Sone (he also shot recent festival hit ONE CUT OF THE DEAD) and features a ricocheting narrative that comes together beautifully in a bloody, gonzo final act.

BLOOD HARVEST (World Premiere of New Restoration)

USA | 2018 | 88 Min | Dir. Bill Rebane

Within the slasher movie canon, there are the indisputable giants: Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers. But what about Marvelous Mervo? Sure, he’s not the omnipresent icon that those other homicidal maniacs are, but there’s something to be said about a madman who’s played by eccentric ’80s music star Tiny Tim dressed like a clown and who leaves victims’ bodies hanging upside down in a barn like cattle.

If that sounds weird enough on its own, just wait until you experience the entirety of BLOOD HARVEST, one of the strangest ’80s slasher movies you’ll ever see. BHFF is thrilled to host the world premiere of a newly restored print of director Bill Rebane’s unnerving and often uncomfortably hilarious oddity, courtesy of Vinegar Syndrome. Full of gnarly kills, Tiny Tim’s signature brand of weirdness, and relentless unpredictability, BLOOD HARVEST is ripe for watch-it-with-a-rowdy-crowd rediscovery.

SECRET SCREENING

??? | ??? | ?? Min | Dir. ???

For the first time ever, the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival is excited to present a mystery film, and, sorry, we won’t give any easy-to-solve hints for all of you proud cinema sleuths out there! Okay, fine, we’ll give you a little something: Our inaugural “Secret Screening” film will either be a can’t-miss new horror gem that everyone, both genre folks and general film lovers alike, will be talking about for years to come or an unexpected yet prescient genre classic from deep in the vaults. Sorry, that’s all you’re going to get. Now let the speculation begin!

You won’t want to run from Home Invasion 2018, our annual showcase of local NYC films featuring our popular shorts block and a spotlight screening of Yedidya Gorsetman’s dark indie sci-fi EMPATHY, INC.

EMPATHY, INC. (East Coast Premiere)

USA | 2018 | 96 Min | Dir. Yedidya Gorsetman

In the “high risk, high reward” world of venture capitalists, rising star Joel lets it all ride on a deal that, sadly for he and his actress wife, painfully falls apart, leaving him with no other choice than to move in with his wife’s parents for financial reasons. Feeling like a huge failure, Joel unexpectedly finds some hope via a run-in with an old friend, whose business partner asks Joel to invest in a new experiential technology called XVR, or Xtreme Virtual Reality, the latest product of which allows wealthy folks to see life through the eyes of the less fortunate. Unfortunately for Joel, XVR’s makers’ intentions aren’t what they seem.

Shot in stark black-and-white and going into exceedingly dark narrative places, NYC-bred director Yedidya Gorsetman’s EMPATHY, INC. is the best kind of lo-fi sci-fi, an intimate character piece rooted in big ideas and blending doses of brutal horror into its cerebral tapestry. Comparable to an extended and decidedly bleak BLACK MIRROR episode, EMPATHY, INC. is a homegrown slice of pure genre-mashing ambition.

Director Yedidya Gorsetman in attendance

NIGHTMARE FUEL

HEAD TRIP

At its boldest, horror doesn’t play by any rules. As you’ll see in these unclassifiable shorts, complete with punk-rock lunatics, malevolent aliens, lovesick fish, and nefarious pre-teens, the genre’s scope is boundless.

LAUGH NOW, DIE LATER

The best way to combat terror? Through laughter, of course. And when these shorts aren’t scaring you silly via women-trolling zombies, body-swapping spirits, madcap slashers, and killer classroom appliances, they’ll leave your sides split.

New Key Art for “The Walking Dead” Season 9 Bathes Rick Grimes in an Ominous Shade of Red

The main selling point of the upcoming ninth season of “The Walking Dead” is that it’s the final season for Rick Grimes, as star Andrew Lincoln is departing the series at some point during the season. We can’t wait to see how Grimes is written out of the show, and we can’t help but wonder if he’ll simply be leaving the group or getting definitively killed off.

While we wait, new key art for Season 9 has been revealed today, and Rick is front and center, bathed in an ominous shade of red. Behind him, both zombies and fellow survivors…

We’re really looking at the start of a new chapter of the show,” new showrunner Angela Kang recently detailed, speaking about the season’s time jump. “We’ll explore what happened as man made objects and structures break down. Infrastructure like roads and bridges are changing and crumbling. And we’ll also explore what happens as resources are getting low.”

She continued, “There’s a fun Western vibe that has emerged. We are going into a period where a lot of the things that we’ve seen in previous seasons have broken down, so they’ve got these horses and carriages that are being drawn around instead of cars. Things are lit with oil lamps. People are using different kinds of weaponry. There’s a real grittiness to it that I think will be fun and fresh for the viewers.”

“The Walking Dead” will return on October 7.

Lutz Ebersdorf, Who May Actually Be Tilda Swinton in Heavy Makeup, Gets His Own ‘Suspiria’ Poster

According to IMDb, an 82-year-old German actor named Lutz Ebersdorf is playing Dr. Jozef Klemperer in this year’s Suspiria, but many have been theorizing that the unknown actor is actually Tilda Swinton in heavy “old man” makeup. We still don’t know the truth and it’s possible we may never know, but goddamn is it a compelling little mystery.

On that note, Ebersdorf’s Klemperer gets his own character poster today. Look closely…

In the new film…

A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director (Swinton), an ambitious young dancer (Johnson), and a grieving psychotherapist (Ebersdorf). Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.”

The cast includes Dakota JohnsonChloe Grace-Moretz, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Sylvie Testud, Renée Soutendijk, Angela Winkler, Małgosia Bela and Lutz Ebersdorf.

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke composed the score. David Kajganich wrote the film, co-financed by Amazon Studios and K Period Media.
