BTW, V/H/S is getting a one week run @ the Nuart starting Oct. 5th. Adgy can tell you for sure(he's seen it) but I think this may be a good one to check out w/and audience.
So weird that I actually know the director of Smiley. He was the youngest of all of us aspiring filmmakers and usually got ribbed the most because of it. We quoted Anchorman a lot.

First Trailer for SIGHTSEERS from KILL LIST Director Ben Wheatley | Collider
Kill List was a mixed bag, especially if you need your movies to have resolution/make sense...this looks a little more clear cut at least.The first trailer for Kill List director Ben Wheatley‘s dark comedy Sightseers has gone online, and it’s pretty damn nutty. The film stars Steve Oram and Alice Lowe as a seemingly nice couple who are taking a trip through the British Isles in his Abbey Oxford caravan. As gleaned in the trailer, the journey soon turns into a killing spree/sex romp, the likes of which you’ve probably never seen before. An appropriately creepy use of Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” plays over this wondrously weird trailer that makes the film look like a really fun ride. Edgar Wright is an executive producer on the pic, and fans of his work should get a kick out of this hilariously strange story.

Heard good things about this. Dunno, looks like a Funny Games/Strangers kinda vibe. Supposed to have some twists though.
Is Sam Raimi working on a new top-secret horror film? | Blastr
Doc...are ya getting excited yet?"I'd like to make another horror movie, I'm writing one with my brother right now. I'm really looking forward to it." Of course, they couldn't let him drop a bomb like that without giving some details.
Raimi continued, "I'm beginning to think I should not have said anything because I don't want to start looking at it from the outside and looking at it analytically. So, we're going to keep writing it. It's a very simple story about a character, we're trying to figure out what they want, it's all of the basic stuff—how they come involved with this darker force.There's nothing much to tell [yet], I've got a three-page treatment we're working off of right now."
We can't wait until we know the whole story. We thoroughly enjoyed the underrated Drag Me to Hell and would love to see something else in that vein.
