The Burrowers and S&Man director wants to bring back J-Horror

17 May 2011 6:11 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I really like what I have seen from director J.T. Petty so far.  The Burrowers was a successful and unique blend of the western and horror genres and based on what I have seen from S&Man (as well as Andy’s glowing praise for it), this young director is quickly making a name for himself.  Which brings me to question one thing: Why is he making a “J-horror” film? Don’t get me wrong, I love a lot of the titles that came from this aptly named genre, including some of the American remakes (I was one of the few that enjoyed both the original Ju-On as well as The Grudge).  Yet, I feel that it wore out its welcome because of the fact the industry was inundated with so many of these films.  This doesn’t even take into account the question of what else can one do »

Cannes 2011: Jt Petty Goes J-Horror With The Haunted Temple

17 May 2011 12:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Yet another announcement from Cannes:Director J.T. Petty (The Burrowers, S&Man) will begin production on a Japanese ghost story shooting in Japan called The Haunted Temple.  The producers are being deliberately cagey with plot details, so as to preserve the element of surprise.  Petty has been on something of a hot streak, with his last two features doing very well among horror enthusiasts.  The producers are making much of the fact that this will be the among the first Us productions to take place in Japan after the tsunami.  I think the goal is to let the world know that Japan is open for business.  I'm surely eager to see what we get out of this:  Haunted Temple Announces Pre-production Film To Be Among The First »

Indie Horror Month: Ben Rock's Five Favorite Independent Horror Films

18 March 2011 4:13 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

My introduction to writer/director Ben Rock came when I interviewed him for his 2009 highly-underrated flick Alien Raiders, which took themes from Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Thing and combined them with a little bit of “24” for good measure (hard not to when the film’s star is Carlos Bernard). Last year I had the opportunity to experience Rock’s work in the realm of live theatre with his twisted play Ba’al and quickly realized he’s someone who has an interesting perspective when it comes to genre-related projects.

I recently caught up with Rock, who's been busy working on content for a recent big-name video game release, to find out what his top five independent horror films are. Check out his favorites below!

Clifton Collins Jr. to Fight Demons in J.T. Petty’s Hellbenders

14 March 2011 5:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The newest cast addition to J.T. Petty’s supernatural project, Hellbenders, is Clifton Collins Jr. (NBC’s The Event). Hellbenders, based on a graphic novel written by Petty, is about a group of demonologists in Brooklyn battling the forces of evil. Variety reports that the versatile Collins will join Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption) and Dan Fogler (Take Me Home Tonight) in the horror/comedy written and directed by Petty. Earlier this year, Petty also sold a spec script to Sony entitled Inherit the Earth, based off the comic Zombies vs Robots. The 3D Hellbenders will start filming next week and is being produced through Circle of Confusion. Hit the jump for more info on the project. While Collins’ addition to the cast is welcome, that doesn’t exactly give us an idea of how he’ll play his character. He has had dramatic turns on television, both in The Event and in The Shield. »

Clifton Collins Jr Cast in J.T. Petty's Supernatural Film 'Hellbenders'

14 March 2011 3:31 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another supernatural project. Variety reports that character actor Clifton Collins Jr., seen in everything from Crank 2 to Babel to Abrams' Star Trek to Extract to Brothers and even The Boondock Saints II, is set to star in a new project called Hellbenders from filmmaker J.T. Petty. I've been following Petty ever since seeing his western-horror film The Burrowers, as he's a great filmmaker with a lot of potential. Petty wrote the Hellbenders screenplay, that's about a secret group of elite demonologists in a Brooklyn diocese who battle a terrifying supernatural force that threatens their lives and faith. Sounds like it could be interesting. Hellbenders is a 3D film that will also star Clancy Brown and Dan Fogler and goes into production next week. Not only do I think J.T. Petty is still a talent to watch out for, but I also really love Clifton Collins Jr. He's such a »

FX artist talks J.T. Petty’s Hellbenders

14 March 2011 1:53 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

A new feature from S&Man and The Burrowers’  J.T. Petty is always an exciting event, and we’re very much looking forward to his new take on the possession sub-genre, Hellbenders. Fango spoke to the film’s makeup FX artist, Brian Spears, who dropped some hints about what to expect from the flick.

“It’s about rogue priests who fight evil and do exorcisms—sort of like The Hangover meets The Exorcist,” Spears, who previously contributed FX to Petty’s on-line Burrowers prequel Blood Red Earth, tells us. “I guess you would call it a horror/comedy; when I read the script, it read straight, but it’s definitely funny and off-kilter. When the horror comes, it’ll be horrific, but there are also lighter moments.”

Variety reported this morning that Clancy Brown (from Burrowers), Clifton Collins Jr. and Dan Fogler are starring in the film, so that definitely »

14 March 2011 9:27 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

If you haven't heard of J.T. Petty, you haven't been paying attention. The NY native became a genre force after Lionsgate released The Burrowers, but his infamy comes behind the incredible S&Man, which finally got a release last year thanks to Magnet. Also known for directing the Rear Window-inspired Mimic: Sentinel, Petty is gearing up for his fourth genre effort that'll put your faith to the test. Clifton Collins is set to star in Petty's supernatural pic Hellbenders, which is about a secret group of elite demonologists in a Brooklyn diocese who battle a terrifying supernatural force that threatens their lives and faith. The 3D film also stars Clancy Brown and Dan Fogler and goes into production next week. The pic is based on a graphic novel written by Petty, who recently sold his spec, "Zombies vs. Robots" to Sony. »

The film will be a co-production between Platinum Dunes, Circle of Confusion and Idw for Sony Pictures, and produced by Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, Dave Alpert and Rick Jacobs.

Zombies to Battle Robots in Michael Bay-Produced Zombies vs. Robots

23 February 2011 7:36 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Comic book adaptations are becoming increasingly popular around Hollywood since the success of movies like Batman Begins and Iron Man, and zombie movies are also gaining in popularity with the success of movies like Zombieland and TV shows like AMC's The Walking Dead. One of the more recent trends is the blending of genres, such as the upcoming Cowboys and Aliens and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Zombies vs. Robots is a triple threat, and screenwriter J.T. Petty (The Burrowers) recognized it.

Deadline reports that Sony Pictures has acquired Petty's spec script titled Inherit the Earth, which was adapted from the Idw Publishing comic book Zombies vs. Robots created by writer Chris Ryall and artist Ashley Wood. The story is set in a bleak world where a zombie outbreak has overtaken humanity, leaving one young girl as the sole human survivor who is protected from the hordes by robots.
