First Look at Xavier Gens' Cold Skin [Trailer]

It seems like I've been following the progress of Cold Skin, one of Xavier Gens' latest projects (he has no less than 3 which are due sometime this year or early next), for years.

The French director best known for Frontier(s) (review) and The Divide (review), not to mention one of my personal faves and a movie I think is completely underrated: Hitman, has been tasked with adapting Catalan author Albert Sanchez Pinol's best selling novel of the same name.

The movie stars David Oakes (a staple of period dramas on British TV) as a young man who decides to es [Continued ...]

Crucifixion Trailer Exposes Shocking Truth Behind Nun-Killing Demon
Fans of The Conjuring franchise will be treated to yet another spin-off when The Nun hits theaters next summer, but if you don't want to wait that long, some of the key creative members of the franchise are bringing another terrifying nun tale to theaters with The Crucifixion. Lionsgate has just released the first trailer and poster for The Crucifixion, which is inspired by true events, but not connected to The Conjuring franchise, although it still looks just as terrifying. This movie doesn't follow a possessed nun, but rather a nun that may have been killed by someone who was possessed.

This horror tale centers on a journalist's surreal, supernatural investigation in a nun's shocking death. American reporter Nicole (Sophie Cookson) travels to investigate the possible murder of Sister Marinescu, sadistically crucified by a priest to vanquish a demon. As Nicole uncovers the weird tales behind this horrific incident, disturbing

First Teaser Trailer for Xavier Gens' Chilly New Sci-Fi Film 'Cold Skin'

Now what do we have here? There's a very brief teaser trailer going around for a film called Cold Skin, the latest feature from French filmmaker Xavier Gens (of Frontier(s) and The Divide). The teaser trailer doesn't show much, but there are a bunch of photos from the set and a few posters that give us a good look at the weird "humanoid killer amphibians". Set on a desolate island in the Antarctic Circle, the film tells of a man living there who discovers that at night the island is overrun by these creatures. The cast includes David Oakes, Ray Stevenson, and Aura Garrido as Aneris, who seems to be one of these creatures that he falls in love with (see photo above). I'm certainly very curious about this, and I hope we get to see more footage sooner than later. For now, this is all we have but it's worth a look.
