Tribeca Film Festival

Haddonfield. Crystal Lake. Springwood. Woodsboro. What do they all have in common? These quaint little havens were terrorized by a slasher instantly removing them from any tourist destination guide. And unfortunately, you might have to add Amsterdam to that list (sorry four-twenty, fiends) because St. Nicholas is coming to town in the Dutch horror film Saint and he's ready to carve up the community with a lethal, golden staff and his army of decayed, armed assistants (Black Peters).

Grave Encounters, the supernatural thriller debuting at the Tribeca Film Festival, couldn't come at a better time. The latest "found footage" offering to hit the genre scene, the film takes its cue from the myriad "ghost hunter" television shows that are competing against one another and asks the question: What if a team of paranormal investigators - who are not unfamiliar with fabricating the events they document - are up against a real malevolent force?

Playing to Tribeca Film Festival audiences this year, Panos Cosmatos' Beyond the Black Rainbow is a surreal journey that - on a visual level - recalls the works of Stanley Kubrick or Ken Russell's Altered States and injects it with a bold, synth-fueled akin to Tangerine Dream. And it's not "check your brain at the door" genre fodder, by any means.

ComingSoon.net sits down with director Paula van der Oest (Zus & zo) and actress Carice van Houten (Black Book) to talk about Black Butterflies, which tells the story of South African poet Ingrid Jonker and her turbulent final years in a relationship with author Jack Cope (Liam Cunningham) and in conflict with her racist father (Rutger Hauer).

We don't often cover short films here on ComingSoon.net, but once in a while one comes along that's so special, we can't ignore it, and it certainly doesn't hurt that David Darg's Sun City Picture House has a couple of name actresses as its executive producers - Maria Bello and Olivia Wilde. The film documents the building of a makeshift movie theater in a refugee camp in quake-stricken Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and it's a beautiful film that's really something to be proud of.

ComingSoon.net talks with actor Taylor Kitsch about his role in Steven Silver's The Bang Bang Club, playing photojournalist Kevin Carter, whose work documenting the atrocities during Apartheid-era South Africa helped raise attention to the problems in his country. We also talk with Kitsch about Disney's John Carter of Mars, Peter Berg's Battleship and his possible return as Gambit!

ComingSoon.net has an exclusive clip as well as a look at some of the supplementary materials made for the film including a TMZ-style story about Gregg D checking into Wingspan.
