With a slew of teasers already posted here, above we’ve added the full trailer for the Singapore horror flick Ghost on Air, which opens overseas May 10. “Ping Xiao, a two-time “Most Popular DJ” award winner, is suddenly robbed of his successful morning show slot. Jealous at seeing a younger DJ taking his place, he forces himself to conquer painful recurring memories of his deceased girlfriend and tells the ghost stories that were written by her on air. With each painful memory he endures, he regains a small step to his superstardom. However, as he is about to claim his reward, he begins to realize that the stories were not works of fiction, and maybe it wasn’t him telling the stories all along…”
Shooting is underway on The Knife That Killed Me, a feature adaption of Anthony McGowan’s novel of the same name, says Screen Daily. “The film, about a sixteen year old boy who becomes involved in the world of knife crime,” has been adapted by Marcus Romer and Kit Monkman, who will also make their directorial debut. Cast members include Jack McMullen, Oliver Lee, Andrew Ellis and Haruke Abe. Principal photography is underway at the Green Screen Studios, based near York, where an infinity curve green screen studio has been purpose-built for the project. The project is being shot entirely against green screen, which is freakin’ stupid.
The boys over at Twitch invite you to check into Killer Motel, which comes from Robogeisha producers Akira Yamaguchi and T.O. Entertainment. Directed by Kazuya Ogawa, Killer Motel will star a host of young actresses including Emi Ito, Akari Hoshino, Ren Ayase and Yuki Maeda. The film’s producer Yamaguchi touts the film as an “action-packed horror with an erotic twist and over-the-top splatter effects.” Killer Motel is slated to begin filming later this month for a planned summer release in Japan. Plot crunch, with spoilers: “There is a Japanese style inn located in an out-of-the-way area near Mount Fuji. No one knows if it’s in business or not, but the inn is owned by two people: the expressionless host, and his bewitching daughter. The host lures six patrons to stay at his inn for one night. All the guests feel the inn has an odd feel to it, but none of them pays attention to it in particular. In reality, the host and his daughter have a hidden agenda. They are hunting in order to feed the host’s son: a huge living zombie hidden away in a locked room, whom these cruel hunters dote on as if he were still part of the family. A twisted tale illustrating conflicts of consciousness, cold-blooded insanity, and the depths one will sink to for the love of one’s family is about to begin…”
Lastly, written and directed by Ramzi Abed (The Devil’s Muse, Noirland) comes Telephone World, which stars Elissa Dowling (Dread), Chandler Maness (Orgy of Blood), Kara Hyatt (Noirland), Tamarah Murley (A Four-Course Meal), and Eric Fleming (The Devil’s Muse). The first 10-minutes of the indie thriller have been shared online and now embedded after the break.
“‘Telephone World’ tells the story of Rachel Plasky (Elissa Dowling), who finds out she got the lead part in a new TV show called “Fairfax Girls”. The main body of the film is shot in one continuous 80-minute shot. All of the action happens in one single take with real phone calls and answering messages occurring in real-time.“
