Take an Early Look Through Nacho Vigalondo's Open Windows

20 December 2012 11:37 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

With filming having just wrapped, a couple of early behind-the-scenes videos for Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo’s first English-language picture, Open Windows, have made their way online; and we have them both for you here. Dig it!

Open Windows, an innovative, high-tech suspense thriller unfolding on the screen of a laptop connected to the Internet, is Vigalondo’s third feature after the 2008 time-traveling tale Timecrimes and Extraterrestrial, a hit on the fantasy film festival circuit over the past 12 months.

Elijah Wood’s production company Woodshed, Basque broadcaster Etb, and Canal Plus are associated partners.

Open Windows develops in real time, delivering 90 minutes of suspense in a tense, fast-paced, high-tech thriller with action and terror, updating the key elements of 70s paranoid thrillers through today’s computer and online environment,” said Wild Bunch sales chief Vincent Maraval.

The plot revolves around a desperate search by Wood’s character for an actress, »

Video: A Look at Nacho Vigalondo's Open Windows

20 December 2012 7:20 AM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Timescrimes and Extraterrestrial's Nacho Vigalondo is in post-production on his latest feature, Open Windows, and this one stars Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey.  

When we spoke to the director last about the film, he told us the story "is going to be a labyrinth, a plot told through the screen of a computer. A long shot focusing on windows that open and close, telling a story in real time. Continuous level of tension. A 90-minute climax, pure action in the most cold way."

Wood plays a man obsessed with an actress (Grey) and you can get a glimpse of the production via a news package which takes you on the set.  It's in Spanish, however, there is production video to gawk at...

A Few Spanish Glimpses at Vigalondo's Open Windows

20 December 2012 6:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Nacho Vigalondo just wrapped production on his third feature film, Open Windows, down in Austin, Texas. A psychological thriller starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey, it follows on Vigalondo's examination of the dissemination of information, as the story is told in real time on a computer screen. As this is his first English-language film, hopefully a larger audience will soon know the genius of Vigalondo that we cinephiles have seen for the past several years. A couple of reports have appeared on Spanish television, including some brief snippets of the film, and of the screen that Vigalondo has created for the story. While most of the report is in Spanish, there are brief interviews in English with Wood and Grey. »

40 Must See Films of 2013

15 December 2012 1:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

With the end of the year just around the corner, it’s time to get ready for the onslaught of cinema that awaits us in 2013. While it’s likely most of the films coming out after the Mayan apocalypse won’t be home run classics, there’s still a huge palette of interesting and bombastic movies waiting for us in the coming year. There’s a lot of big studio blockbusters and a good helping of smaller films that all look like they’ll be worth checking out.

With that, here’s a list of forty films (in the order of their release dates) that have sparked this author’s curiosity and should get you looking forward to another year at the multiplex.

40. Gangster Squad (1/11)

Despite delays caused by the shooting that took place in Aurora earlier this year, Ruben Fleischer’s ode to gangland violence doesn’t look to »

New Trailer for The ABCs of Death

4 December 2012 1:37 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A red band trailer for The ABCs of Death gave us the first good look at the anthology horror film last month. If you’re looking for more, we have the new green band trailer that was just released. The ABCs of Death is an anthology horror film with 26 short chapters. Each chapter is directed by a different filmmaker, including Ti West, Xavier Gens, Adam Wingard, and more:

“Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABC’s Of Death is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free reign in choosing a word to create a story involving death. »

Spying on the Set of Nacho Vigalondo's Open Windows

19 November 2012 9:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

A series of emails took me through the maze of streets in a central neighbourhood of Madrid. Upon arrival, I was led by producer Nahikari Ipiña into the location shoot of Nacho Vigalondo's new thriller Open Windows. Starring Elijah Wood, Sasha Grey and Neil Maskell, this is Vigalondo's third feature film and first in English. Vigalondo has made a reputation with his time-travel film Timecrimes, and sci-fi comedy Extraterrestrial. His unique approach to dissemination of information in contemporary society make his films metatexts on technology and its effect on human interaction. Details of the film are being kept pretty quiet, so I won't be revealing much on the plot. Suffice to say that in continuing with Vigalondo's singular vision, the film is seen entirely on »

The ABCs of Death Red Band Trailer

16 November 2012 7:07 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

If you've already listened to our 2012 Tiff podcast, you'll know that Jay and I were not crazy about the 26-part anthology film The ABCs of Death. Although anthology films are always hit and miss, this one felt even more inconsistent than usual. Still, if you're a horror fan I imagine it's hard not to be curious about a project with segments directed by Nacho Vigalondo, Ti West, Xavier Gens, Ben Wheatley, Jason Eisener and many, many more. A red band trailer for the film has debuted over at Yahoo!, and it wisely showcases some of the stronger segments; in particular, Ben Wheatley's "U Is for Unearthed" and Marcel Sarmiento's "D is for Dogfight". However, it also manages to get across the very outrageous and eclectic nature of the project as well. The ABCs of Death will be released via VOD on Jan. 31st and hits select theatres on »

Red Band ‘ABCs of Death’ Trailer Offers a Glimpse of 26 Ways to Die, Many of Which Involve Boobs

15 November 2012 2:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s a danger to anthology films in that the films often lack consistency when it comes to quality. They consist, after all, of multiple short films, each with their own writers, directors, and actors, and that variety can only lead to varying levels of success. So how do you combat the chance some of your shorts might suck? Make a movie featuring 26 shorts, of course. The ABCs of Death is an original Drafthouse Films production that gathered 26 filmmakers, assigned each of them a letter of the alphabet and gave them a simple task: make a very short film about death inspired by their particular letter. The roster of directors who answered the call are an international directory of genre fans and masters, and a small sampling includes Jason Eisener, Xavier Gens, Yoshihiro Nishimura, Nacho Vigalondo, Ti West, Ben Wheatley, and more. The first red band trailer has just appeared online, and »

‘ABCs of Death’ Red-Band Trailer Offers 26 Flavors of Horror

15 November 2012 1:18 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It seems that horror movie anthologies are making a comeback; the tradition – first started in the ’70s and ’80s with films like Twilight Zone: The Movie, Tales from Crypt and Creepshow – saw a resurgence in 2012 with the highly-anticipated film V/H/S (read our review). However, while V/H/S brought together a handful of writers and directors to tell a handful of scary stories, the upcoming film The ABCs of Death is going much bigger, uniting 26 directors for 26 tales of murder, mayhem and a general taste of the macabre.

Check out the red-band trailer, above.

Here are just a few of the names attached to this project: Ti West (House of the Devil), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), Xavier Gens (Hitman, The Divide), Kaare Andrews (Altitude), Srdjan Spasojevic (A Serbian Film), Noboru Iguchi (Mutant Girls Squad), etc. Clearly, if you are at all familiar with »
