Anthology horror lives on
W2 Media announced today that it will co-finance and distribute The Theatre Bizarre 2 – the sequel to Severin Films and Mataluna Productions’ horror anthology The Theatre Bizarre.
W2 Media is releasing the first film theatrically in the U.S. in January 2012 and plans to release the sequel in January 2013.
Severin Films and France’s Metaluna Productions co-produced the original The Theatre Bizarre, a modern horror anthology inspired by the over-the-top shocks of Paris’ early 20th century “Theatre du Grand Guignol,” featuring films by directors Douglas Buck, Buddy Giovinazzo, David Gregory, Karim Hussain, Jeremy Kasten, Tom Savini and Richard Stanley.
The film’s original producing team will also produce the sequel.
Check out a trailer for the first film below.
