Thanks to the Bloody Disgusting Selects which is the distribution arm of the Bloody Disgusting site (The #1 site for all things horror related) and the Collective it looks like those of us lucky enough to have a participating AMC theatre will be able to see the newest and best independent horror films that the world has to offer!
First up, on May 4th, Rammbock: Berlin Undead hits the silver screens. Produced by Melanie Berke and Sigrid Hoerner, written by Benjamin Hessler and directed by Marvin Kren, this film was a favorite of the Fantastic Fest and marks the first German foray into the Zombie genre.
Then on June 1st, Yellowbrickroad, gets its chance to shine on the screen. Produced by Eric Hungerford, directed and written by Andy Mitton and Jesse Holland, and starring Cassidy Freeman (Smallville), Anessa Ramsey (The Signal), and Lee Wikof (Before the Devil Know You’re Dead).
Coldfish debuts on July 6th, from Sion Sono, the director of Love Exposure and Suicide Club. Coldfish is frighteningly enough based on a true story! Sono’s brutal serial killer film has gained international acclaim on the festival circuit. Coldfish is being billed as a bloodcurdling suspense drama that unveils the underlying insanity of an ordinary man. This film looks pretty intense and due to some disturbing imagery I can’t post the international trailer here.
Atrocious rounds out the Summer of Horror at the participating AMC Theatres on August 5th. Directed by first-time helmer Fernando Barreda Luna and produced by Octavi Martinez, David Sanz, and Jessica Villegas Lattuada. After its international premiere, the film screened this last January at Slamdance, garnering a tide of buzz and comparisons to Paranormal Activity. BE WARNED: There is some salty language in the trailer.
