Split – Movie Poster

I think that this poster, for the upcoming movie Split, with Kevin behind  shattered glass, conveys the core of the story in a both smart and simplistic way. In the middle of the story we find Kevin, portrayed by James McAvoy, a man with a severe personal disorder, with 23 personalities residing inside him. When Kevin abducts three teenage girls, a 24th personality – “The Beast” – awakes.

I guess there’s more to it than that, and since it’s M. Night Shyamalan who has both penned and directed it, I assume that there is a mind-bending twist lurking somewhere.

Take a gander below and see what you think about the Split poster. Split will head up on the big screen on January 20, but it has already gotten a favorable buzz around it since it was screened at a couple film festivals this autumn.

Chucky 7 moving forward?

Digging through the movies that are currently listed as pre-production today, I came across an interesting title – Chucky 7 – rumored to be both penned and directed by Don Mancini himself. Another rumor about the movie is that Fiona Dourif will return to the franchise and reprising her role from Curse of Chucky, something that seems rather legit according to this photo, which was published on twitter, not that long ago.

Jennifer Tilly is also said to be back, lending her voice to Chucky’s former wife Tiffany, as she did in Bride of Chucky back in 1996.

The plot in Chucky 7 seems to revolve around revenge, as Chucky, with the help from Tiffany, is out to get even with his enemies from the past. Also it doesn’t seem that Chucky will loosen his grip around Nica either.

Even though the above is thrilling, rumors about the development of Chucky 7 has been circulating for some years now, but maybe Don Mancini will pull the strings and breathe some life into our favorite killer doll, Chucky.

Don’t Breathe – Trailer

The director Fede Álvarez got the idea to the upcoming nail bitter, Don’t Breathe, as he was growing up in Montevideo, Uruguay.

In Don’t Breathe, we meet three friends with a shortage of cash and faulty moral compasses. When they get news about a blind man who might have $300,000 stashed in his home, they see a solution to their problems. They come up with a plan to break into the man’s home, grab the cash and get out of there. It’s just one small problem; the blind man isn’t keen on having visitors snooping around his home.

Exploration

Bloober’s large eyes were set on the dark silhouette, beside a glooming structure, elevating a couple hundred yards ahead. The dust-filled wind played with his dark leather cloak as his green bulbous body slid over the rough surface, leaving a trail of thick sludge behind.

Seen, heard, felt anything, scout?

Sahaen’s telepathic question popped up in his head like a vague thought.

Sound detected, approaching objects’, report follow.

Even though most would never set their sole on an unknown planet, Bloober relished it. The mere thought of exploring a new world for edible life, sent his mind spinning and his acid glands in overdrive. He had been so optimistic about this planet before he descended upon it. That was many sun lapses ago, though, and the only sign of life he had slip over, was dry fossil bones and withered debris of ancient structures.

The dark silhouette had details now and Bloober could recognize an oval body, with a head and four limbs attached to it, two supporting ones and two hanging at the sides. A classic design, just as he suspected.

Her Vow

The dinner knife slid into Eric’s throat like butter. He sniveled and froze in his seat. A couple of guests gasped, gazing confounded at them. They had known about it, long before she stumbled upon them, going at it like rabbits. Now it was her turn to be demoralizing.

With a smile, she pulled out the knife, blew a kiss to her sister’s ash gray face and rose from the seat. The blood created jagged pink stripes, on the white dress. A thin film of blood covered the diamond on her finger. Is it a blood diamond now, she pondered. Then she buried the knife deep into Eric’s neck, sending his face into the broiled salmon.

She leaned down and whispered, “’Til death do us part, darling.”

Eric’s rattled puffs and the rustling from her dress, accompanied her out, into a brand new world.

Leprechaun: Origins

The Leprechaun franchise goes back to 1993, when Jennifer Anistion got to experience how much balefulness a leprechaun (Warwick Davis) can summon.

After that, five more movies quickly spawned, from the hands of Hollywood, which took our green killer on a journey that reached all the way into space.

Now, in Leprechaun: Origins, he has his shiny buckled shoes safely back on the ground in his home turf – the verdant Irish countryside – where four young backpackers will be painfully aware of his sinister nature.

Wer – a werewolf indie to be unleashed on DVD

Wer seems to be an interesting werewolf horror from The Devil Inside director William Brent Bell, staring A.J. Cook from Criminal Minds, Sebastian Roché, who played Balthazar in Supernatural and Vik Sahay.

In the movie we meet defense attorney Kate Moore (A.J. Cook) who is assigned to defend a mysterious loner, who’s accused of a horrific massacre on a vacationing family. As the investigation proceeds, Moore starts to suspect that there could be something inhuman dwelling inside her client’s body.
