Topic: Spiral---- Adam Green's Hatchet Follow-up!
For those of you who dont know, Adam Green, the director of Hatchet, is already prepping for his next film to come out called Spiral. It has been playing at several select horror filmfests in 2007. And in theaters before Hatchet played, the first full length trailer for Spiral debuted. I must say it looks very very creepy. It is a psychological/thriller type of horror film. It stars and is co-directed by Joel David Moore, who was also the star of Hatchet. I think it looks great and should be interesting to see Adam's next horror project.
The official website is going strong. It has yet to post the newly debuted trailer but has a lot of other good stuff for everyone including a good photo gallery, 2 official posters for the film, and 4 behind the scenes videos. So check it out:
Synopsis: (straight from the official website)
Portland in the fall is a solitary city. A city where a lonely man can lose himself, insulated beneath the cold, and the clouds, and the rain. Mason (Joel David Moore) is just such a man. A gifted artist, Mason is never-the-less neurotic and reclusive, living a life of anonymity, working from a drab cubicle in a florescent-lit phone bank, repeating the same meaningless conversation with faceless strangers ad nauseam.
Mason is never truly noticed by anyone, save his boss, Berkeley (Zachary Levi), not quite a friend, but a sole source of companionship in an otherwise isolated existence. That is, until he meets a gregarious co-worker named Amber (Amber Tamblyn), a girl struggling with her own loneliness and need to define herself. Amber's jovial demeanor and seemingly carefree attitude provides a sort of catharsis for Mason, and allows his true gifts to come to light as she poses for
It is an unlikely, and unusual courtship that helps Mason find peace for possibly the first time in his life. But as Mason's defenses lower, and the man inside is revealed, there may be something behind the surface darker than anyone expected. For not everything that is hidden should be found, and not every love is meant to be. And you can't paint over your past...
Here is a cool intro for Spiral by Adam Green himself at Frightfest 2007.
