Panos Cosmatos’ ‘Mandy’ has already left an impression on horror movie fans for it’s imagery and a chainsaw-wielding, psychotic Nicolas Cage seeking bloody revenge against a cult in the 1980s, but a new interview with Cage details the inspiration for his character, Red Miller.
“It was a good chance to go through a narrative and have a transformation of sorts,” Cage said, during an interview with EW. “Before he drinks that supernatural drug, or whatever it is, his fighting style is more ferocious, is more cat-like and feral. Whereas after the drug, there’s a transformation where he becomes almost like a golem, the ancient Jewish golem that was a supernatural statue that came to life. And I think Panos wanted that. He wanted me to be almost like Jason-esque, you know, from those horror films that were so popular.”
Okay, since we aren’t getting any new content from the Friday the 13th game, nor will we be seeing any new Friday the 13th films (thanks Paramount) anytime soon, and character inspired from Jason is worth seeing in bloody action, right?
“Panos and I really both decided what the graph of the performance would be” Cage continued. “How much more Jason-esque is he there? Or like a statue there? We built this both together.”
Per the synopsis:
“Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.”
Mandy drops on September 14th.
‘American Exorcist’ Arrives this October
Just in time for the Christmas season rush, the holiday horror film ‘American Exorcist’ is set to arrive in October to help you celebrate Halloween and toast that good ole’ Christmas cheer, and it stars horror movie icon Bill Moseley.
Per the synopsis:
“A paranormal investigator is trapped inside a haunted skyscraper on Christmas Eve. The skeptical scientist, Georgette Dubois, is horrified once confronted with the reality of the supernatural. She risks life and limb to escape her ghoulish prison, stranded on the top floor.”
The film is set to arrive on October 26th.
Christine Elise Talks ‘Child’s Play’ Remake
Christina Elise knows a thing or two about the ‘Child’s Play’ franchise, as she was the star of Child’s Play 2 and Cult of Chucky, and she is sharing her thoughts on the upcoming remake of the original Child’s Play, which will be directed by Lars Klevberg.
The reboot marks a clean slate for the franchise, as the film will be moving forward without the involvement of creator Don Mancini, who is busy with a television series for Universal, and with Chucky now being a robotic doll.
“I think it’s an unbelievably huge dick move. I think it’s a douche move absolutely,” Elise said, in an interview with Horror Geek Life. “I don’t know why they would fuck with a healthy franchise. To make a competing franchise with an existing, and like you said healthy, robust franchise is super douchey. And nobody from the original franchise is involved; they’re not gonna have Brad Dourif, they’re not gonna have Don, and they’re not gonna have any of us.”
Elise also has her own thoughts of what the film will have in store.
“I think the doll is going to be an artificial intelligence doll that goes haywire, so it’s not going to have the whole element of the serial killer possessing it, et cetera, so it’s not going to be, really, a Chucky film” Elise continued.
“So, I don’t know why they’re just taking the title and stealing it and mucking up the waters. It’s especially douchey when you know that Don is developing a TV series and going back to using the title Child’s Play; not Bride of, Seed of, Curse of, Cult of Chucky, it’s going back to the Child’s Play name and it’s deep into development.
So, this MGM project could have, it hasn’t but it could have, really, easily derailed the TV show project, which would be devastating, because fingers crossed it happens and fingers crossed I’m involved in it, as much as I would like to be. It’s an opportunity here where Don can further a story he’s been telling for 30 years, but rather than tell it in 90-minute segments every three years or more, he can tell 10 hours of story in 10 weeks, he can get that much more story ahead. And if you’ve seen Cult and you see how Cult ends, you know how rich in story it is, there’s so many doors open now, and to so insensitively threaten the Don Mancini empire I think, is fucked up.”
