IT’S… Did you see the “Monty Python” inspired open from last night’s “Family Guy”?
SUPER: NOIR! Dark Horse has coined the phrase “Super Noir” for Francesco Francavilla’s “The Black Beetle.”
SO FAR SO GOOD! According to io9, “Evil Dead” remake director Fede Alvarez says there is no CG in the new flick!
“We didn’t do any CGI in the movie. There’s no CGI in the movie. Everything you will see is real, which was really demanding. This was a very long shoot, 70 days of shooting at night. There’s a reason people use CGI: it’s cheaper and faster. I hate that. We researched a lot of magic tricks and illusion tricks. [Like] how you would make someone’s arm disappear.”
SHHH…IT’S A SECRET! In a chat with EW the ultra-secretive director talked being ultra-secretive with ultra-everything:
“It’s not like there are threats, it’s not like we’re begging them every day,” he says. “We just say up front that all the work we’re doing is about making this a special experience for the viewer; let’s preserve that as long as we can.”
A FAMILY PORTRAIT! Thanks to Arrow in the Head, watch the doc on the original “Texas Chainsaw” and see the hell these folks went through to bring you an all-time horror classic.
’Til tomorrow, gang!
