Choice Cuts 48: Todd Lincoln, Director of The Apparition

When I moved back to Los Angeles many years ago, Todd Lincoln was one of the first directors I interviewed.  At the time, he was in line to helm a screen adaptation of Hack/Slash.  That film never worked out for him, so he moved on to a few other projects, including The Apparition which is seeing its release this Friday (August 24th).

For our 48th episode of Choice Cuts, we pulled in Lincoln to discuss his supernatural thriller, his time on Hack/Slash, the fate of his Danger Girl adaptation and the two projects he is currently at work on: Joe Hill’s Twittering from the Circus of the Dead and The Nye Incidents.

Welcome The Apparition Trailer & One-Sheet

Dark Castle’s latest endeavor, The Apparition, is getting a release through Warner Bros. on August 24th (one week before The Possession) and, today, the trailer and poster have made their debut.

With an ominous voice over, the trailer gives us a taste of the frightening events that start to occur in a young couple’s home when they discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The horrifying apparition feeds on their fear and torments them no matter where they try to run. Their last hope is an expert in the supernatural, but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force.

The film marks the feature director debut of Todd Lincoln.  Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Julianna Guill, Tom Felton and Luke Pasqualino star.

MTV has premiered a new image from The Apparition, the supernatural thriller opening from Warner Bros. opening on August 24th.  Greene shares the screen with Sebastian Stan (Bucky in Captain America).

Together, they play young couple Kelly and Ben who discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The horrifying apparition feeds on their fear and torments them no matter where they try to run. Their last hope is an expert in the supernatural, but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D & Sinister Get Moved

Finding a release date can be tricky for any horror movie, though one has to figure that October is still the best month for the genre as seen by the success of the “Saw” and “Paranormal Activity” movies and dozens of others, including Marcus Nispel’s 2003 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake. 

That’s why it’s kind of surprising that ERC is reporting Lionsgate has moved their upcoming reboot of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D back three months from its original pre-Halloween release date of October 5 to the first weekend of 2013 with a release on January 4. The ink on that release date change hadn’t even dried before Summit jumped on the now-open October 5 as the new release date for Scott (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) Derrickson’s found footage movie Sinister starring Ethan Hawke and Vincent D’Onofrio.
