Bloody Disgusting’s BC writes in with a surprise announcement out of the FrightFest in London. Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen) and Joe Lynch (The Knights of Badassdom, Wrong Turn 2) are teaming for a new horror anthology, CHILLERAMA, which also include the works of Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City) and Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs, Driftwood). You’ll find the first details inside!
News reported by BC:
The plot details follow the last drive-in theater in America that’s closing its doors. The owner is having one final night. BC explains that it’s not like Creepshow in that it all fits together as one movie.
The shocker? Production is almost complete and we will hear more near end of the year.
Rifkin’s segment is entitled “Wadzilla”, which is in sprint of ’50s monster movies. It’s about a guy looking to raise his sperm count, and things going disastrously wrong. The special effects work are being done by Chiodo brothers (Killer Klowns from Out Space).
Sullivan is presenting “I Was a Teenage Werebear”, which is like ’50s surf movie (Beach Blanket Bingo).
Green presents “The Diary of Anne Frankenstein”, which is a ’40s war film starring Joel Moore (Avatar, Hatchet), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th films, Hatchet), and Kristina Klebe (Halloween, BreadCrumbs). It’s about Hitler (played by Moore) creating the perfect killing machine to win the war.
Lynch will bring us a new zombie movie that’s in the vein of ’70s/’80s undead flicks. Lynch says the best way to sum it up is “when there’s no more room in hell, the dead will f*ck the earth.”
There will be no further details until end of the year.
Green is going to show “Diary” in its entirety to the crowd at FrightFest, catching everyone off guard. Holy crap! Can you say jealous?
