The South By Southwest Festival (SXSW) in only a few months away and this afternoon a few of the horror films were revealed, which includes the previously announced Black Sheep (review), which IFC acquired last year at the AFM in California (with Dimension Films distributing). Read on to see what films you’ll be able to check out this year and watch for full coverage here at Bloody-Disgusting.
Cinematical Announces the Following SXSW Line-Up:
Black Sheep (Second Night) — An experiment in genetic engineering turns harmless sheep into blood-thirsty killers that terrorize a rural town in New Zealand.
Borderland (World Premiere) — Sean Astin, Rider Strong and the amazingly gorgeous Mircea Monroe star in this tale of lost kids, wrong turns and human sacrifices.
Grimm Love (North American Premiere) — Before he was handed the reins on the upcoming Hills Have Eyes 2, German filmmaker Martin Weisz created this unpredictable (and fairly controversial) tale of hardcore cannibalism. (Over the past year or so, I’ve been asked “Have you seen Grimm Love yet?” at least a dozen times.)
Mulberry Street (North American Premiere) — SXSW producer Matt Dentler described this one to me as “Zombies overtake New York, only they’re like Rat-Zombies. It’s pretty damn wild.” Sign me up.
Sisters (U.S. Premiere) — All I know is that it’s a remake of the Brian De Palma flick, and it stars Stephen Rea and Chloe Sevigny … which is all I need to get at least somewhat interested.
Them (U.S. Premiere) — A French chiller also known as Ils, it’s about a couple who get absolutely terrorized by a group of unseen assailants. And by “unseen,” that means by the audience as well.
