When Javier Botet is in a movie, you can be pretty damn sure that Javier Botet is going to make that movie terrifying. The creature performer has provided precisely that service in a handful of horror movies in recent years, including [REC], Crimson Peak, The Conjuring 2, and this year’s Don’t Knock Twice, and he’ll be seen later this year as the Leper in Stephen King’s It.
Also headed our way this year is Dimension’s horror film Polaroid, scheduled for release on August 25th. Over on his Instagram account, @JBotet just revealed that he will star.
Last year we named Botet horror’s most terrifying special effect, and we stick by that.
Thanks for the scoop, @JandrySays.
Written and directed by Lars Klevberg, the film is based on the short film of the same name.
Polaroid, written by Blair Butler, focuses on a series of mysterious teen deaths and an old Polaroid camera with a secret, evil history: The kids start turning up dead after being photographed.
Chris Bender, Jake Weiner and Jake Wagner produce at Benderspink, Roy Lee (The Ring, Blair Witch, The Grudge) at Vertigo and Petter Løkke & John Hagen at El Dorado Films who produced the short with Lars Klevberg in Norway.
