Premiering at Cannes this year will be Outsider Pictures’ new thriller 5 Souls. The Brett Donowho (At Silver Falls) directed film stars Ian Bohen (Pearl Harbor), Steve Bacic, Kristina Anapau (Black Swan), Steven Schub (The Thirteenth Floor), Samaire Armstrong (“The OC”) and Allison McAtee (“NCIS”). The other day I had the chance to catch up with Donowho on the phone and we talked about the Souls, shooting on location and the three other films he has going to Cannes this year (Silver Falls, No Tell Motel, and The Sacred).
In the film, “After falling into a coma after a routine doctors visit, Noah awakens to find a man sitting at the end of is bed. The good news is that he has come to kill him, and then there is the bad news…” This clip comes straight from that premise, it’s here that we first see Noah awake in the hospital to less than a warm welcome.
An English-subbed trailer for the Thai horror Dark Flight 407 has been added to YouTube. “Thailand’s first 3D horror movie is ready to take off. The pic follows a flight attendant who is haunted by the victims of plane crashes.”
Being sold at the market is Predestination, a new thriller from Undead and Daybreakers directors the Spierig Brothers. Sinister star Ethan Hawke, who starred in the Spierig’s Daybreakers, stars in the “Riveting adventure through time with two detectives from a secret government time traveling agency designed to prevent future killers and terrorists from committing their crimes.”
The Cannes Film Festival has added another seven titles to its Official Selection, one the Midnight Screening title Maniac. Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac is a remake of William Lustig’s cult horror film about a serial killer, starring Elijah Wood and Nora Arnezeder. The picture is produced by Thomas Langmann and Alexandre Aja. “Wood plays the role of a serial killer who works at a shop that sells antique mannequins. He finds victims on the Internet and stalks them like prey, all the while suffering from hallucinations that throw him back into the past, when he was abused by his own mother. In his twisted mind, he gains a measure of revenge against his mother with each kill.”
While Enderby Entertainment is selling Brett Donowho’s At Silver Falls at Cannes, they’re also pushing out his No Tell Motel, which we’ve added both the sales trailer and poster art for below. In the film starring Angel McCord, Johnny Hawkes and Chelsey Reist, “Dirty little secrets are exposed when five friends become stranded at an abandoned motel haunted by a dark secret of its own.” READ MORE
From Cinema Management Group comes Brett Donowho’s No Tell Motel, starring Angel McCord, John Hawkes, Chalie Howes, Andrew MacFarlane and Chelsey Reist.
“Secrets we keep from each other can come back to haunt us: NO TELL MOTEL is a compelling story of isolation, desperation, and the darkest kind of redemption. The old Horak place, an abandoned roadside motel tucked away in the woods just off Route H is the stuff of local legend. The place where little Angela Horak got run down in the middle of the road. Of course, that was nothing compared to what happened to her parents afterwards. It’s not exactly the ideal place to get stranded. But that’s exactly what happens to adorable Megan Walsh and her four teenage friends when their RV gives up the ghost. With no other options, the group reluctantly decides to hole up for the night in the crumbling motel’s mysteriously organized Room Six. It isn’t long though, before Megan and her friends discover they’re not alone…”
