Following its Sundance World Premiere, a re-tooled (and revitalizing) finale, and a Stanley Film Festival rebirth, the killer kid comedy Cooties […]
Elijah Wood – actor and producer over at SpectreVision – offered a status report for Cooties, the horror-comedy picked up by Lionsgate at the start of the year.
There were rumblings that the film would arrive this fall, but that changed quickly and the film shifted into “release date: TBD” territory.
In speaking with Twitch, however, it sounds like we’ll be seeing Cooties soon…and with an ending festival audiences did not get when it debuted at Sundance.
Talking with the team of SpectreVision – Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller – is like sitting down with some of your best genre-loving friends and talking about horror. The conversation might take many tangential turns, but it’s driven by intelligence and enthusiasm for horror. While attending the Stanley Film Festival over the weekend, Shock Till You Drop finally had the chance to speak with this triumvirate about the heartbeat at SpectreVision’s core.
Big things have been happening at the company since it landed on the scene. Two of its films, Cooties and A Girl Walks Alone Home At Night, have hit the festival circuit. Another, Toad Road, is on VOD and LFO was recently acquired by MPI/Dark Sky Films. Meanwhile, The Boy, starring Rainn Wilson, David Morse, Mike Vogel, Zuleikha Robinson and Bill Sage, is production.
The team at SpectreVision – Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller – are finding success with their new banner. Their latest film, LFO, has just been picked up by MPI Media Group for distribution. It will be released by Dark Sky Films.
Writer-director Antonio Tublen’s film is a darkly satiric look at our modern obsession with technology and the toll it can take on human interaction.
Love the tagline. Love the retro design. The poster for Cooties has made its premiere in advance of the film’s debut at Sundance. The film, by Jonathan Millott and Cary Murnion, was scripted by Insidious’ Leigh Whannell and Ian Brennan.
Starring Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, Whannell and Nasim Pedrad, the film concerns a mysterious virus that hits an isolated elementary school and transforms the students into a feral swarm of mass savages.
Earlier this year, one of the films I was happy to visit was Cooties, a film by Jonathan Millott and Cary Murnion that was scripted by Insidious’ Leigh Whannell and Ian Brennan.
