Extraterrestrial and Time Crimes director Nacho Vigalondo recently wrapped Open Windows, described as an innovative, high-tech suspense thriller unfolding on the screen of a laptop connected to the Internet.
Starring Elijah Wood (Maniac) and Sasha Grey (The Girlfriend Experience, Would You Rather?), the plot revolves around a desperate search by Wood’s character for an actress (played by Grey), who has been abducted by vicious villain Chord, played by British actor Neil Maskell.
Head inside for the poster! It definitely does a nice job of selling the film as well as Wood’s new career turn into “pervy killer” territory (though it looks like he’s playing the good guy in this, maybe he doesn’t kill anybody). READ MORE
Kill List is the kind of film whose full impact doesn’t hit you until after you have had a chance to reel your mind in from the incredibly intense ending.

A one-of-a-kind blend of family drama, hitman thriller and terrifying psychological shocker, Kill List (review) is the story of an ex-soldier turned contract killer who plunges into the heart of darkness – and takes the viewer with him on a ride from which there is no return. The “#1 horror film of the year” (David Harley, Bloody-Disgusting) arrives on high-definition Blu-ray and DVD on August 14, 2012.
“From director Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace, The ABCs of Death) comes a mind-blowing genre concoction that marks a new milestone in the annals of modern horror. Eight months after a disastrous hit job left him physically and mentally scarred (and struggling to support his wife and son), Jay (Neil Maskell, Pusher, Basic Instinct 2) is pressured by his partner and best friend Gal (Michael Smiley, Wire in the Blood) into taking a lucrative three-part assignment: kill a priest, then a dealer in torture porn, and finally a member of Parliament. As the two men – one a volatile hothead, the other a careful professional – carry out their work with shocking brutality, Jay’s world begins to unravel until paranoia and unexplainable visions send him reeling.”
