The architecture flaw of the medicine chests and people being able to sneak in, is something that (director) Bernard Rose discovered in his research for the film and there was actually a series of murders that were committed this way.

ALT-POSTR-MONDAY FOR AUGUST 22, 2016

Another week of posters and one more week until August is done! I’m listening to Alice Cooper’s “Billion Dollar Babies” as I prep this new set for all of you. I don’t know why I told you that, but enjoy!

SHORT FILM SATURDAY: LAST TRAIN HOME (2008)

Last Train Home

Written, directed, shot, edited and produced by Sion Griffiths at New York Film Academy.

Starring Andrew Craig, Diane Curry, Lara Fisher, Isaac Gallego, Danny Jensen and Jamie Relis.

Six minutes and 24 seconds.

Here’s a story that I am sure that everyone has heard at one time or another and in one way or another. In other words it is an urban legend. This isn’t ground-breaking horror but merely another version of a creepy tale and one told effectively at that. Enjoy.

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: ARRIVAL

Synopsis:  When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team – led by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life and quite possibly humanity.

I always thought that Deep Impact was the smarter person’s version of Armageddon; judging from the trailer it appears that Arrival may be the intelligent answer to Independence Day. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario) and starring Amy Adams, Forrest Whitaker and Jeremy Renner and written by Eric Heisserer from a short story by Ted Chiang, Arrival arrives in theaters on November 11, 2016. Check out the international trailer and a poster ↓.

A-Z TRIVIA WEDNESDAY: THE CABIN IN THE WOODS

Cabin_woods_Review_Images_V01

During the elevator ride scene, when Dana realizes they have chosen their own creatures to hunt them, she is looking at what appears to be a Cenobite – a creature known from literary works and films by Clive Barker. The Cenobite wears a black latex-like outfit and has multiple saw blades inserted into its skull. It also holds what is known as “Lemarchand’s box” in the form of a spherical puzzle – similar to the one Kurt was trying to solve in the basement. The most famous Lemarchand’s box is the Lament Configuration, which appears in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser (1987) film and its sequels. The Lament Configuration serves as a gateway that summons the Pinhead along with other Cenobites from Hell, to punish those who solved the puzzle.

ALT-POSTR-MONDAY FOR AUGUST 15, 2016

My schedule at work has been changed. Now, instead of being able to post Alt-Postr-Monday at midnight, or a few minutes after like I was doing, I’m not going to be able to post until after 7 o’clock in the morning. Aside from that, I will try to present to you the best posters I possibly can and I hope this weeks batch is no exception.

In addition I apologize for taking so long to post today’s set. There was an internet service interruption in my area and I didn’t have service after 5:30 in the afternoon.

A neglected teen takes refuge in the dreams that used to haunt her and orchestrates a shocking plan to prove her worth to her disapproving parents.

Written and directed by Richard Bates, Jr.

Starring Tessa Ferrer, Karen Tiegren, Paul Fahrenkopf and Carly Hobson.

Filmed in the United States.

18 minutes and 26 seconds.

Here is the original short film upon which Richard Bates, Jr. based his 2012 feature film. I wasn’t a fan of the 2012 film so I was surprised that I liked the short film. Let me know what you all think. Enjoy.
