Horror Highlights: Q&A with Hell Town Co-Director Steve Balderson, The Recall, Blackburn UK Release Details

This morning’s Horror Highlights takes our readers to Hell Town, as Daily Dead did a Q&A with Steve Balderson, the co-writer/co-director of the film. Also: production details and an official poster for The Recall and UK release details for Blackburn.

Daily Dead’s Q&A with co-writer/co-director of Hell Town, Steve Balderson: “Debbie Rochon (Model Hunger, Return to Nuke ‘Em High, The Theater Bizarre) headlines as the hostess of the three surviving episodes of “Hell Town”, following the melodramatic, small-town and potentially short-lived lives of Krysten Day, Amanda Deibert, Owen Lawless, Ben Windholz, Jennifer Grace, and Balderson muse Pleasant Gehman.

Hell Town follows the melodramatic antics of high school seniors clashing over love, sex, and betrayal. In the middle of all the everyday drama of one-sided infatuations, backstabbing bitchiness, bottled-up sexuality, sibling rivalry and general small-town angst, the Letter Jacket Killer is killing students in a variety of sadistic ways.

Oregon Couple Planning Dream Wedding Four Years After a Drunk Driver Delayed Their Plans
Last summer, McKenzie Yeoman set up a fundraising site so her sister, Kelcie, could have her dream Disney wedding to Larry Ragsdale, her high school sweetheart. Readers were so touched by the Oregon couple's love story - their wedding plans were put on indefinite hold in March 2010 after a drunk driver plowed into Ragsdale's car as he was on his way to propose - she met her goal (to raise $20,000) in just 11 days. It turns out getting the full Disney wedding experience costs more than that, so a group of former Disney brides who befriended Kelcie after her story went

Jesse Owens Biopic Finds Its Leading Man (Exclusive)

Owens’ victories are considered among the greatest atlhetic feats of all time.

Hitler had insisted Jews and Blacks not be allowed to participate in the games,

Katherine Heigl Attempts Career Turn; Joins Dark Projects ‘Face Blind’ And ‘Happytime Murders’

  • The Film Stage
In contrast to her Knocked Up co-star Seth Rogen, Katherine Heigl has not followed up Judd Apatow‘s hit comedy as well. The projects she stars in seem to get worse and worse, with romantic “comedies” such as The Ugly Truth and Killers, in addition to the laughably bad One For the Money this year, Heigl’s career is in desperate need of a revival. Although it has admittedly only been 5 years since the Judd Apatow romantic comedy stole our hearts, Rogen‘s film choices have been infinitely better than hers since, and it doesn’t take long for a star to get lost in the crowd in Hollywood. Perhaps with the bad taste of her recent decisions in mind, the star has opted to join two projects with significantly darker tones than her normal work.

First up is Face Blind, which is “an independent thriller about a psychologist struck

Katherine Heigl Lines Up a Familiar New Thriller and a Puppet Comedy

Another day, another thriller about prosopagnosia.

French writer-director Julien Magnat's 2011 straight-to-dvd indie thriller Faces in the Crowd dealt with the disorder, which causes "face blindness" or the inability to recognize faces, in a story that saw Milla Jovovich stalked by a serial killer after suffering from a head injury. Katherine Heigl is the latest actress to have the affliction in the similarly plotted Face Blind.

Deadline reports that Heigl will produce and star in the movie, where she will play a psychologist who is struck with the affliction and finds herself stalked by the man who terrorized one of her patients. See how Face Blind is different from Faces in the Crowd? Jovovich played a schoolteacher, not a psychologist.

Movie News in 60 Seconds: Katherine Heigl Repeats Milla Jovovich, 'The Raid' Sequel, 'Carriers' Writers Get a New Gig

Katherine Heigl Struck With Rare Disorder: No, unfortunately Katherine Heigl hasn't come down with a rare disorder that will stop her from making movies, but she's signed on to play a woman who has one, so that should at least keep her away from rom coms for a little bit. The disorder in question is called face blindness, and it means the afflicted cannot internally associate a person's face, which is super inconvenient if you're trying to figure out who is stalking you. And if that plot sounds familiar, that's because a (rather boring) Milla Jovovich film called Faces in the Crowd (pictured above) with a nearly identical conceit went straight to DVD a few weeks ago. Tom Hanks Gains a Wife: Well, a movie wife, that is. Catherine...

Katherine Hiegl Isnt So Good With Faces in New Horror Thriller Face Blind

The delightful 'Grey's Anatomy' star Katherine Heigl is lining up a new prosopagnosian thriller. Hottie Heigl -below ('Valentine', 'Knocked Up') will star and produce 'Face Blind'. Prosopagnosia (Aka face blindness), of course, is a brain disorder relating to face perception which means the sufferer cannot remember people's faces. Heigl will play a psychologist who is stalked by a man who also did the same to one of her patients but struggles to remember his face, obviously. It's sadly not as fresh as it sounds as most of you may recall Julien Magnat's 'Faces in the Crowd' crime thriller from last year starring Milla Jovovich - which is almost a carbon plot to this one. So my question is, why? The hunt is on for a suitable director at a loose end...

Katherine Heigl is ‘[Face] Blind’ to the faces in the crowd

Deadline are reporting that Katherine Heigl is set to star in a new thriller entitled Face Blind, which will see the actress play “a psychologist struck with a rare affliction that makes it impossible to distinguish people by their faces. When a man who terrorized her most vulnerable patient stalks her, the psychologist can’t recognize him, and her husband thinks she’s the one who is going crazy.”

Er, can you say Faces in the Crowd? I know Hollywood can run out of ideas sometimes, but seriously, a Remake of a film that only came out last year? Or is this the usual case of someone reading a script for a movie and greenlighting a knock-off. In that case are we sure this isn’t another Asylum mockbuster? Faces in the Crowd was bad enough (check out my review) and adding Heigl to the cast is not going to

Katherine Heigl To Star In And Produce Face Blind

Last year, Milla Jovovich starred in Faces in the Crowd, a direct-to-dvd thriller that nobody saw. In the movie, Jovovich's character is attacked by a serial killer and left with a rare psychological condition that prevents her from recognizing faces. This, of course, becomes a problem when she can't identify her attacker and he comes after her to finish the job. That film only debuted on home video in October, but apparently that's more than enough time for the folks behind Katherine Heigl's next project. Deadline is reporting that Heigl is now attached to star in Face Blind, a movie with almost the exact same plot as Faces in the Crowd. Like Jovovich's character, Heigl is also stricken with the affliction - which, in medical terms, is called Prosopagnosia - only in this film she is a psychologist being stalked by one of her crazy patients. While she knows

Katherine Heigl Starring in a Movie That Milla Jovovich Just Did Last Year

It’s like the dueling killer asteroid movies all over again. Well, not quite. A scant year after Milla Jovovich came out with the serial killer thriller “Faces in the Crowd”, Katherine Heigl has now signed on to star in the similarly themed “Face Blind”. In “Faces in the Crowd”, which for all intents and purposes went straight-to-dvd last year, “Resident Evil’s” Milla Jovovich played a woman who is attacked by a serial killer, leaving her with a disease that prevents her from recognizing faces. A problem, since that same serial killer comes back for her, believing she had seen his face. What’s a girl to do? In “Face Blind”, Heigl would play “a psychologist struck with a rare affliction that makes it impossible to distinguish people by their faces.” A problem, since she’s currently being stalked by a man who had previously stalked one of her patients.

Katherine Heigl Goes Face Blind

Remember that Milla Jovovich flick Faces in the Crowd? No? That could be because it sucked, but in any event a new flick is on its way with kind of a similar storyline. Could this one get it right?

According to Deadline Katherine Heigl (pictured right) will star in Face Blind, an independent thriller about a psychologist struck with a rare affliction that makes it impossible to distinguish people by their faces.

When a man who terrorized her most vulnerable patient stalks her, the psychologist can’t recognize him, and her husband thinks she’s the one who is going crazy.

Heigl will produce with Maven Pictures’ partners Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray. Scripted by Dominic Harari and Teresa De Pelegri, the film’s in the vein of The Others.
