It’s been a crazy week for new trailers -- and we’re not done yet. Here are two more clips for upcoming titles Intruders and The Snowtown Murders, along with info on how you can watch documentary The Interrupters for free from your very own PC (and no, it doesn’t involve a torrenting site…)
Clive Owen takes on a supernatural creature concocted (apparently) by his own daughter’s scary story (this is why we tell our kids to only write stories about fabulous things like winning the lottery for school projects…) in Intruders.
Directed by 28 Weeks Later helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, Intruders might be misnamed judging by the new clip. “Intruder” would seem to be a more apt title, as we think it’s just one monster – named Hollow Face – stalking Owen and his young daughter. Perhaps Millennium wanted to avoid confusion – Scott Spiegel’s cult classic slasher flick Intruder just recently debuted uncut on Blu-ray.
At any rate, Intruders looks sure to appeal to the multiplex crowd with its dark fairytale vibe and the dashing Owen as its hero. We’re wary of big studio horror flicks around these parts, but Fresnadillo is a good director who understands the genre, so there’s hope for this one.
Intruders is set for a March debut at SXSW, followed by a limited release. [via FilmSchoolRejects]
If you thought John Jarratt’s character in Greg McLean’s Wolf Creek was the scariest serial killer in Australian history, this new trailer for Justin Kurzel’s The Snowtown Murders would like to show you the error of your ways.
The filmmaker’s debut feature is a haunting look at a series of real-life murders that took place in Snowtown, Australia and the relationships of those involved in the crimes. The feature has already won some prestigious awards (the 2011 Jury Prize at Cannes, four Australian Academy Awards, etc.) and will look to find an American audience when it debuts in New York City on March 2nd.
One of the best documentaries of 2011 was Steve James’ (of Hoop Dreams fame) The Interrupters. In the film, James follows a group of ex-gangbangers who’ve formed a group called Ceasefire, with the goal of putting an end to gang violence in Chicago.
