SXSW Capsule Reviews: That Guy Dick Miller, Creep & Open Windows

In addition to the many horror movies that made their premiere at SXSW – you can read all of my full reviews to date here – I caught a few titles that fall into the documentary, techno-thriller and, well, horror…comedy (I’m still trying to figure out the film’s intent) sub-genre. I’m talking about Elijah Drenner’s That Guy Dick Miller, Nacho Vigalondo’s Open Windows, starring Elijah Wood, and Creep, starring Mark Duplass and Patrick Brice. Here, find my capsule reviews while I still play catch-up from SXSW!

Another SXSW entry making my “most anticipated” list is Open Windows, a thriller directed by Nacho Vigalondo and starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey. Vigalondo is definitely a horror “friendly.” His film, Timecrimes, hit the festival scene in 2008. With that film, we got a refreshing, smart, weird thriller. Later, he directed Extraterrestrial (now on HBO Go, in case you didn’t know), a love story wrapped in an alien invasion scenario. Again, unique and pretty damn awesome.

Elijah Wood, Sasha Grey to Star in Next Film from Timecrimes Director

Nacho Vigalondo garnered our attention with the time travel mystery Timecrimes and later won us over one more time with Extraterrestrial.  Now, he’s at work on Open Windows, a techno-thriller he has discussed in the press in the past, and the director has Elijah Wood as his star.

Shooting has been underway in Spain for a bit now and Screen Daily reports “the plot revolves around a desperate search by Wood
