After preeming at the London Frightfest this month, Little Deaths – a crazy new anthology featuring horrific tales from three of England’s edgiest filmmakers: Simon Rumley (Red White & Blue, Living and the Dead), Andrew Parkinson (I, Zombie, Venus Drowning) and Sean Hogan (Isle of Dogs, Summer’s Blood) – will have its U.S. premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas.
We just now scored this new steamy still, while inside you’ll find details on all of the shorts with some insane imagery.
It’s rare when a movie gets made the entire team behind it keep their lips sealed until a festival. I mean, it’s got to be hard not to share your creativity with the world, no?
First discovered back in May, Ben Wheatley’s Kill List, which stars Neil Maskell, Michael Smiley, and MyAnna Buring, was announced as part of the Austin, Texas SXSW Film Festival. No details were revealed, but we’re so on top of our sh*t we’re excited to tell you that it’s about a group of demobbed soldiers turned contract killers who run up against a devil-worshipping coven (sounds a bit like what Rob Zombie is up to with The Lords of Salem). Anyways, here’s the super secret plot crunch and first ever hi-res still:
“Beginning 8 months after a disastrous job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred, ex-soldier turned contract killer Jay, is pressured by his partner Gal, into taking a tough new assignment. As they descend into the dark, disturbing world of the contract, Jay begins to unravel once again – his fear and paranoia sending him deep into the heart of darkness.”
“To survive the end of the world…you must first survive each other…”
How many of you are fans of Frontier(s)? Yeah, me too. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to see Xavier Gens’ quasi-anthology The Divide, which will premiere at this March’s SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas.
Starring Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia, Rosanna Arquette, Courtney B. Vance, and LaurenGerman, “the segments include a post-apocalyptic thriller set mostly in an apartment building fallout shelter, a serial-killer thriller about a woman afflicted with “face blindness,” and a coming-of-age story about a young girl seeking out her birth mother.
German’s character is at the center of the film, set in New York, which is virtually destroyed in a mysterious explosion in the first act. Eight survivors take refuge in the fallout shelter of an apartment building, where they are menaced first by mysterious men in HazMat suits and eventually by each other.”
