Joint productions with Fantastic Films
L.A.’s Fantastic Films International and the UK’s House of Fear are forging ahead with a number of joint horror productions in 3-D.
Two titles part of the multi-picture deal include titles such as Wolfman (in 3D) and a comic book fantasy film called Watchmen of Hellgate. But the one film that appears to be the farthest along is called Eldorado, which is described as a comedy, horror, musical, road movie directed by Richard Driscoll.
Starring Daryl Hannah, David Carradine (in his last film), Michael Madsen, Steve Guttenberg, Brigitte Nielsen, Jeff Fahey, Patrick Bergin, Bill Moseley and Sylvester McCoy. Fantastic Films plans to introduce this feature to buyers at AFM in November where they will screen early footage in 3D.
Synopsis: After wrongly being sent to a Neo Nazi fund raiser instead of the stripper, Blues Brothers tribute band ‘The Jews Brothers’, Stan and Ollie get offered a gig in the city Eldorado to make amends for a gig gone sour. At the same time, Jessica a beautiful but despondent wife, is on the run with a million dollars from her cheating husband’s night club. All roads lead to Eldorado, where these lives intersect, while a bigger power is controlling the action to make their visit to this town one they will never forget. It’s Eldorado’s 200th anniversary, the townsfolk are hungry to celebrate, which does prove unfortunate to the tourists who come to visit only to find that they are the dish of the day. A parody of films including The Blues Brothers, Sweeney Todd and Little Shop of Horrors, Eldorado is more than just bad table manners and a little light music, it becomes a way of life.
Fantastic Films and House of Fear tout Eldorado as the first British 3-D horror film. Looks like they’re contending with Elfie Hopkins And The Gammons for that title (more on Elfie here).
