Utah isn't just for lovers--It's also for the Sundance Film Festival. Every year the fest rolls around I am jealous of those who get to attend the premiere of some of the most talked about independent films. This is the largest indie film festival in the U.S. and this year's lineup for the Park City at Midnight category looks like good stuff. The festival runs January 21 - 31 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. Many popular horror films got their start at the festival, including Saw. I wonder if Weinberg was there... After the jump you can get up close and personal with the lineup for Sundance's Midnight movie series. Keep your eyes here for more info on the films as we get it. I also gave you my picks. Tell me yours?
So far I'm pretty psyched for Splice, directed by the stylish Vincenzo Natali (Cube), starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley as two scientists who splice human and animal DNA to create a beautiful but deadly creature. The film was getting buried for a while because of budget issues, so it's nice to see this one finally come around. Some initial reviews of the film were positive and I look forward to hearing what others have to say.
Also on my watch list is The Violent Kind by The Butcher Brothers (The Hamiltons) starring Taylor Cole, Christina Prousalis, Tiffany Shepis (Night of the Demons remake), David Fine and Joseph McKelheer. A secluded farmhouse, bikers, boobies, blood, ghostly Rockabillies and possession? Sold! Bloody-Disgusting has some more images for you to peek at and the official Facebook page launched yesterday.
