Maite Alberdi, Director

Resonant docu-feature “Tea Time,” now in post-production, about old dears who’ve had a cuppa together for decades, stood out at pix-in-post showcase Bal Goes to Cannes. Now shooting “Children,” about a group of youngsters with Down’s Syndrome. A young rep of Chile’s vibrant docu-pic production sector.

Guillermo Amoedo, Writer-director

A co-scribe on Eli Roth’s “The Green Inferno” and “Knock, Knock,” plus Nicolas Lopez’s “Aftershock,” Amoedo is helming first feature: “The Foreigner,” an English-language mystery thriller that is more grounded than most vampire films, Amoedo says. Set in Canada’s Northwest, it is produced by Lopez and presented by Roth.

Alvaro Ceppi, Writer-director-producer

Broke through with Cartoon Network Latin America series “Zumbastico Fantastico,” and developing two animation projects: “The Mango Brothers,” about aliens wanting to conquer a planet occupied by fruit and vegetables, and “Tony and His Odd Manual to Repair People.”

Upcoming Documentary Asks the Question Why Horror? at Cannes

9 May 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

What is it about horror that we love so much? Why are we so into being terrified and seeing innocent people killed in the most brutal ways? Have you ever pondered these questions? Longtime fan Tal Zimerman has, and he's made a documentary that sets out to answer them.

Screen Daily reports that WTFilms will be bringing Zimerman's documentary Why Horror?, which delves into the psychology of horror around the world, to Cannes. Among the interviewed subjects are names like George Romero and John Carpenter as well as Eli Roth, Alexandre Aja, Alex de la Iglesia, Ben Wheatley, Simon Barrett, Takashi Shimizu, Don Coscarelli, and Nicolas Lopez.

"For us who are fans of horror films and are dedicated to selling them, this is a dream come true," said WTFilms co-founder Gregory Chambet. "It’s fascinating to see that people from any country or gender are horror lovers and that scary movies translate the same everywhere. »

WTFilms launches doc strand

9 May 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

New non-fiction slate from the genre specialist also features Korea by Yann Moix and Why Horror?.

French genre specialist WTFilms has picked up sales on documentary La Bare, which goes behind the scenes at the famous male stripper club La Bare in Dallas, as part of a move into non-fiction.

WTFilms co-founders Dimitri Stephanides and Gregory Chamet say the move is a natural one for their Paris-based company, which has built up a strong reputation for its genre-based fiction slate in recent years.

“We love genre but want to tackle every aspect of its wide range”, said Stephanides

“Great films like Jodorowsky’s Dune and Room 237 have inspired us. Our name means we want to sell intense, rock ’n’ roll movies, and that is valid for documentaries as well.”

La Bare was written and directed by Joe Manganiello, who played Big Dick Richie in Magic Mike. The film, which premiered at Slamdance in January, will be released »

Not literally, you nutcase! We're just updating yesterday's story in which we told you Eli is making a new untitled movie in Las Vegas. The shooting title of the movie is being called Drowned for now. No other new details are available.

Madrid – Uncork’d Entertainment has acquired U.S rights to “Best Worst Friends,” the latest movie from Chile’s Nicolas Lopez, whose “Aftershock,” co-written by and starring Eli Roth, was released in the U.S by Radius-The Weinstein Company.

Founded by DVD vet Keith Leopard in 2012, and working theatrical, physical home entertainment, VOD and TV distribution, Uncork’d will give “Best Worst Friends” a limited theatrical release on May 2.

It has acquired all U.S. rights save for a two-month window that kicks in for Netflix, a “Friends” co-producer, from May 2, Lopez said.

Eli Roth's Cannibal Horror The Green Inferno Gets A Chilling New Teaser!

16 April 2014 9:35 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Eli Roth's latest offering of globe-trotting terror takes us deep into the Peruvian rain forests, where a group of good-time-lovin' student activists soon find themselves abandoned and at the mercy of a savage, flesh-craving tribe of indigenous cannibals. Roth again joins forces with Aftershock director Nicolas Lopez, with the Chilean filmmaker this time providing Producer and Co-Writer duties while Roth directs. While the results are just as gory, manic and populated almost entirely by unlikable characters, something about the disgusting nature of the cannibal sub-genre makes their particular combination of decidedly off-colour humour and celebratory carnage a much better fit than it did in the disaster movie setting of their previous collaboration.I saw The Green Inferno when it screened back at Fantastic Fest last September, and...

Here's the 'Green Inferno' Trailer You've Been Waiting For (Exclusive)

16 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

2014 seems to be an embarrassment of riches when it comes to modest genre movies. And it's not just horror movies, either. Everything from Denis Villeneuve's mind-bending "Enemy" to next month's terrific slice of Southern fried revenge "Cold in July" have delighted, surprised, and made us think, at least momentarily, that we're living in some kind of golden age of genre movie, where top quality product can be released over a variety of platforms, with the same intended, oftentimes shocking punch.

And if there is one master of shock, it is none other than Eli Roth, who gave us the "Hostel" movies and "Cabin Fever." He's been out of the filmmaking game for a while, mostly due to his commitments as an actor (he starred as the Bear Jew in Quentin Tarantino's Oscar-nominated, spellcheck-proof "Inglourious Basterds"), but this year he's back in a big way. Not only did he »

Keanu Reeves Says Knock Knock

6 April 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in February, Eli Roth announced that he would next make suburban thriller pic Knock, Knock. With production set to kick off this month, he has gathered a cast that includes Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, Ana de Armas, Ignacia Allamand, Coleen Camp and Aaron Burns.While it’s not strictly a horror movie, it’s the closest Reeves has come to the genre in a long time: though Constantine had some scary elements, it was more of a supernatural superhero film and you have to stretch all the way back to Dracula for real horror (hold the jokes about Reeves’ accent, please). But he’s clearly ready to give something more scaresome a try, agreeing to star in and executive produce the movie that Roth wrote alongside Aftershock/Green Inferno collaborators Guillermo Amoedo and Nicolas Lopez.Knock, Knock finds Reeves as a seemingly happily married man living with his wife »

Eli Roth Says 'Knock Knock' To New Horror Film, Robert Schwentke To Direct WWII Pic 'Hauptmann' & More

24 February 2014 2:03 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After a six year break from directing between "Hostel: Part II" and the upcoming "The Green Inferno," it looks like Eli Roth won't let a gap like that happen again: he's lining up a new horror film to tackle. Roth has signed on to direct "Knock Knock," a film he co-wrote with "Aftershock" dudes Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo. The plot? Well, it will tell the tale of "two young girls who show up unexpectedly at the home of a married man where they seduce him and wreak havoc on his perfect life." Sounds like a porno with an unhappy ending. Perhaps fittingly, this will be quick and dirty with the $10 million movie shooting in April. [The Wrap] Robert Schwentke, aka The Guy Who Made "R.I.P.D.," is bouncing back. First he bagged the gig helming the "Divergent" sequel "Insurgent," and now he's going to make a war flick to.

Eli Roth Reteaming with 'Aftershock' Writers for 'Knock Knock' Horror

24 February 2014 11:04 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

When we highlighted the red band trailer for The Sacrament last week, we pointed out that before The Green Inferno (hitting theaters this year), director Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) had taken a six year break from directing. But he's not waiting so long to get back behind the camera again as The Wrap repots Roth will direct Knock Knock, a new horror film he co-write with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo, writers on the Roth-produced disaster horror Aftershock. And of course, Roth will also produce the film, which seems to be coming together quickly with veteran actress Colleen Camp also producing. The film will follow two young girls who show up unexpectedly at the home of a married man where they seduce him and wreak havoc on his perfect life. Sounds like a sexy version of The Strangers, but the horror angle isn't hard to surmise. Knock Knock will »
