DYING BREED [1.07.09 (Wednesday) 3:45pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Just a reminder that Dying Breed, starring Leigh Whannell and Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek) is playing this weekend as part of the After Dark Horrorfest, for those of you who live close to a major city. I think Dying Breed plays Friday night only. In my city, it's the closer for that night at midnight.

A few pictures and the trailer, in case you haven't seen...Collapse )

Doggie Heaven [1.07.09 (Wednesday) 12:48pm]

Six months ago, morvena posted here to pass along the trailer for Leigh and James's Doggie Heaven short film, which was finally released last month. I don't have access to XBOX Live, so I've been waiting for some kind soul to pirate the movie and put it online.

For anyone else who is interested, I finally found it. The picture quality isn't great, for obvious reasons, but it's still Leigh Whannell writing and acting, and James Wan directing, which I think is something most of us agree we enjoy.

The link is here.

Hope this post isn't annoying, but I wanted to pass the link along in case anyone else has been waiting and hoping.

edit!: sheriff_kirby posted this much better link. Here. :)

Dying Breed trailer [4.15.08 (Tuesday) 2:22pm]

Hi! :D I'm a huge Leigh fan so obviously I just had to join this community. I'll be sure to do the questionnaire later, since I found something on youtube recently that will probably make a lot of you happy (that is, if you haven't already seen this). I felt the need to post this, since I see that no one has yet. :)

So what do you all think about this? I think it definitely looks interesting, but the plot is very familiar. Something like a cross between The Hills Have Eyes and Wrong Turn or something. Except it's in a different country. Well, since it has Leigh in it, though, it's pretty much a given that I'll see it. I'm sure it's the same case for you all as well. ;D
Oh, and I still can't find the release date on this. Does anyone know? Some websites say this year and others say next year. But something tells me it won't be next year. Hopefully. :)

Saw: The Video Game [3.27.08 (Thursday) 4:24pm]

This has been in the works since 2005, only found out about it the other week, not to much is known about it but this is what I did find out:

Brash Entertainment provided today an update on the status of the next SAW videogame.

Set to release in October 2009, in conjunction with the next instalment of the film series, SAW the videogame will give fans of Jigsaw and these films a reason to live. Collaborating closely with Lions Gate and Twisted pictures, the game will have its own unique storyline, while answering questions left unanswered by the SAW films. In an effort to stay true to the movies, Brash is working closely with creators of the SAW franchise, Leigh Whannell and James Wan, ensuring the game pulls no punches, and delivers the horrifying suspense and disbelief that has floored fans worldwide. The SAW game is currently in development for next-gen platforms and will be built using the Unreal 3 game engine.

I did read somewhere that you play a victim, you wake up in a trap, have to get out of it then it becomes a test where you not only have to find out about your own past but all about John’s as well. It ties in very close with the 3rd film, I remember I read that it crosses a lot of lose ends between each film, meaning you will interact with other victims, traps and Jigsaw himself YAY!!!

Now I know the bad wrap most film games have got because they are made so fast to get it out in time with the film but bear in mind that this has been worked on for years and they even have Leigh and James working with them. Now to me this is gonna be a must have for all Saw fans, they are not just doing some quick job, they really are work hard on this one which REALLY is making me look forward to playing it!!!
