Australia Wants To Scare The Sh*t Out Of You - For Free
This is actually a pretty awesome idea. If the movie sucks, who cares, you saw it for free. If it's anything more than that -- sweet! You saw it for free. In fact, if it succeeds and starts a trend, it's the type of thing that could potentially panic the studios, and that's never a bad thing. Conceived by Julian Harvey and Enzo Tedeschi and directed by Carlo Ledesma, it's a pretty bold idea regardless of the outcome.
Anyway, here's the poster, which is comprised of the first thousand people who donated (donations were $1 per frame of film and yes, I admit that I bought a few just for kicks). It's actually a pretty cool poster (click it for a high resolution version):
And here's the trailer. It feels a little bit like the Spanish [Rec], and it's a wee bit generic, but given what's going on behind the scenes, I'm still interested.
I'll tell you, the foreign low-budge independent horror flicks are getting much more interesting than the American ones. Between films like [Rec], the single-take The Silent House, and this, there's some real innovation going around the world. They may not all end up hits, but at least they're trying new things. Instead of just making Saw 45.
