The Neon Demon Images Reveal a Bloody Elle Fanning for Refn’s Horror Film

13 May 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Nicolas Winding Refn went a little quiet following the response to Only God Forgives, but he looks like he’ll have a major resurgence with The Neon Demon. The creepy, cool premise revolves around an aspiring model (Elle Fanning) moving to Los Angeles where “her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.” The film is about to finish wrapping, and now the first The Neon Demon images have landed online. They only provide a brief taste of what Refn is going for, but they come off as both disturbing yet oddly seductive. I’m also excited to see what Fanning brings to the film since she’s one of the most exciting young actresses working today. Check out the new The Neon Demon images below. The film also stars Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone, »

Alessandro Nivola Boards Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon

15 April 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With every new casting announcement on Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, we learn a little more of its deranged premise. A horror set in the fashion world, its early descriptions lend it an edge of Lynch via way of Cronenberg. In short, it’s setting itself up to be a visual delight that will shake your morals loose at the same time.

Refn has himself described it as a “horror film about vicious beauty” and reports from various outlets indicate that it’s set to focus on “a group of supermodels going to extremes in their attempts to keep looking the way they do,” which will include the use of “voodoo and cannibalism.” Needless to say, The Neon Demon won’t receive a PG-13 rating based on those cultish activities its starry cast will likely get mixed up in. That ensemble so far includes Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, »
