‘Awakening the Zodiac’ Trailer Find the Killer’s Snuff Films

There’s a new Zodiac-inspired horror movie arriving this summer and it looks pretty damn cool.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions and Vertical Entertainment are releasing Jonathan Wright’s Awakening the Zodiac on June 9, 2017, and Bloody Disgusting now has the film’s official trailer that hunts down the Zodiac.

Starring Shane West, Leslie Bibb, and Matt Craven, the story follows a down-on-their-luck couple who discovers a serial killer’s film reels. They decide to take the law into their own hands, risking everything for the chance at a $100,000 reward. It isn’t long until they find themselves in the killer’s lethal cross-hairs.

  • Yeah, I rolled my eyes from the synopsis, but the trailer was pretty impressive.

    I’m always skeptical of horror movies that use true events as a launching pad for a completely fictional story. It seems somehow far less satisfying than either an authentic recounting of history or a 100% original film would. But I have to say, this looks pretty good. I will definitely be checking it out.

    Why do I want to see this?!? I’m seriously asking. It looks like it is going to be a solid meh but there is an off chance that it could be decent…but I can’t put my finger what it is that makes me want to see this. Perhaps I just want another Carnage Park…I dunno.

    You bring up a great point about the R vs PG 13 rating. R is kind of a promise to horror fans if that makes any sense. Anyway, if you are interested check out the link below about how even PG 13 has even gone to shit. https://youtu.be/O-NeJRrgoTY

    You hit it right on the head, it’s the attempt to cash grab with the PG-13 rating than it is the actual rating. It is possible to make a good film within the rating; Lady in White, The Monster Squad (though that would probably be R today), Devil (which I think was very underated), 1408 (again, underated) and The 6th Sense (though calling that horror is a bit of a stretch, I know. But it still falls under that banner) are all good examples of using the rating to it’s full potential. But stripping down a film that was R to get a wider audience is gob of spit in the face of both to horror fans and to the people who make the film.
