‘Dark Hollow’ Trailer Is Short But Striking

25 November 2012 11:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paul Campion was once a humble visual effects artist at Weta, working on the likes of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. That was until last year, when he directed The Devil’S Rock, a pretty decent horror film involving Nazis and the occult. Now we have a trailer for his next directorial effort, Dark Hollow. Dark Hollow is set in a small village that borders a forest which contains great evil. A Satyr – half-man/half goat – needs young women to satisfy his lust, and something tells me they wont be coming back. The trailer is very simple, but the final reveal is one that is intriguing but not overblown. Dark Hollow is based on a book of the same name by author Brian Keene.

We have the first trailer (read – teaser trailer) for Paul Campion‘s upcoming horror movie titled Dark Hollow, and trust me guys, this is definitely worth your full attention! First reason: the whole thing is based on Brian Keene‘s novel of the same name. And that’s probably enough.

Fantasia 2012: Primer on the Frontières International Co-Production Market

18 July 2012 4:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the big announcements of this year’s Fantasia is that for the first time Fantasia will be presenting the Fantasia Industry Rendez-Vous which includes a film market for the films being presented during the festival to help those filmmakers sell their films for distribution, as well as a series of conferences that are free and open to the general public – although accredited film industry representatives have priority seating.

In addition to the film market for films being presented during the festival, Fantasia will also be hosting a film market to be called Frontières: The Fantasia International Co-Production Market. That sounds exciting, but what does it mean? What impact will it have for the average Fantasia film-goer and what does it mean for the future of the Fantasia Film Festival? We spoke with Stephanie Trepanier, Market, New Media and Hospitality Director (as well as) Programmer for the Fantasia Film Festival to find out. »

Two new horror releases are coming our way in the shortest month of the year, and as always we have the skinny for you on the particulars. Read on, oh great one!

February 14th, 2012

On the Eve of D-Day, two Allied commandos sent to destroy a German gun installation uncover a secret occult lair where the Nazis are hiding a deadly she-demon, whom they plan to use to turn the tide of the war. The Devil’S Rock marks the directorial debut of special effects master Paul Campion (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, X-Men: the Last Stand), who crafts a bloody battle from hell in this Nazi-era frightfest. Featuring special effects and make-up by the five-time Academy Award® winning Weta Workshop (Avatar, District 9, Lord of the Rings, King Kong), this WWII-based film has been called “the best Kiwi horror since Peter Jackson’s Brain Dead.”

The Devil’s Rock Gets a North American Release: A Review and Preview

5 January 2012 4:00 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Paul Campion.

Writers: Paul Finch, Brett Ihaka, and Paul Campion (screenplay).

Cast: Craig Hall, Matthew Sunderland and Gina Varela.

When there is a film that is about Nazis dabbling with the occult, ears are going to perk, and the question is would it have turned the tide of World War II? With The Devil’s Rock, all those tender loving thoughts are going to get explored again with its DVD release Feb 14.

Shades of Enemy Mine can be found at one level, and some nods to the Indiana Jones franchise can be found at another. The Nazis did try to look for the Spear of Destiny, Ark of the Covenant and Holy Grail before and during the war. Viewers who are not acquainted with history or archaeology may not know of Hitler’s preoccupation with connecting to the occult.

Just like the video release with its plethora of extras, »
