The French production company Vixens, which was started two years ago by Gary Farkas, Clement Lepoutre, and Olivier Muller, is gearing up to present their first four offerings and each one sounds incredibly interesting if you’re a horror fan!
The first project they’re working on is Housewife, which will be the first English-produced film from Turkish director Can Evrenol (Baskin). The film is described as being influenced by the works of Dario Argento as well as Rosemary’s Baby. The film will begin shooting in January in Istanbul.
Next up is Beyond the Wall of Sleep from director Christophe Deroo. The film is an adaptation of a novel by Howard Phillips Lovecraft by the same name, the Gothic supernatural film will be shot in two parts with the first part shooting in late 2017.
After that is The Charmer from Swedish-Iranian director Milad Alami. Per Variety, the film, “…a psychological drama with some thriller elements, turns on a Danish-Iranian under-achiever who lives under a fake identity and is forced to reconsider his life after falling in love with a woman.”
Lastly, there is David Raboy’s The Giant, an English-speaking horror film that is said to be in the vein of It Follows. Shooting on that begins this Summer.
WHEW! Tell you what, Vixens knows how to keep my interest. Each of those projects sounds pretty damn fascinating and I’m all aboard!
