Published

on

Schafer

Hunter Schafer has been absolutely brilliant in HBO’s Euphoria. Now, Schafer has moved into the realm of horror with Luz director, Tilman Singer for Cuckoo. Joining Schafer for this one is Dan Stevens, Jessica Henwick, Marton Csókás, Greta Fernández and Jan Bluthardt.

There aren’t any details on Cuckoo’s story at all, but we are going to go ahead and say that we have total faith in Tilman Singer. His film, Luz is an absolutely fantastic, genre bending, mind screw. In addition Cuckoo is being made by Neon! If you look at Neon’s filmography, you will notice that they have a lineup similar to A24. There aren’t any bad films in the bunch.

The only thing we could find on any actual details was over on Deadline who reports that the film is being shot on 35mm.

We will be sure to keep you updated on all things Cuckoo including release dates, posters, etc…

Piggy

Director, Carlota Pereda has a lot to be excited about today her gory coming-of-age film, Piggy just won Fantastic Fest’s Best Horror Film Award!

Creepy Smilers Caught on Camera at Major League Baseball Games

Published

on

The horror movie Smile is opening on Friday, and in a genius bit of marketing, the studio gave horror and baseball fans a creepy meta experience this past Friday.

On September 23, viewers of three Major League Baseball (MLB) games had people in the stands, near the cameras, who had disturbingly evil smiles across their faces, sometimes for innings at a time.

Innings and Grinnings

Sports Illustrated reported on the story citing three games in which the grinning people appeared: Red Sox-Yankees, Mets-Athletics, and Cardinals-Dodgers.

The stunt was effective. Unnerved fans and viewers quickly went to social media and posted about the smilers, making the whole gag a success.

But sports fans weren’t the only ones creeped out by the grinning ghouls. During the live broadcast of Good Morning America, behind hosts Hoda Kotb and Al Roker, a scare actor could be seen with the same evil Cheshire grin watching them from the street window.

The Psychotic Smirk

This deceptively trustworthy facial expression is known as the Psychotic smirk according to tvtropes.com.

“The Psychotic Smirk is a favorite with Big Bads everywhere. There’s no need to broadcast just how dangerous they are – everyone’s got a pretty good idea already, but no one can prove it. The important thing is to smile with only one side of the mouth. Sometimes, it’s accompanied by a Finger Wag as if to say “Nice try, sucker” if the hero had attempted to defeat them.”

That concept might be behind the plot of Smile which follows Dr. Rose Cotter who after experiencing a traumatic event notices that people start to smile just before becoming murderously unhinged.

Sosie Bacon — Kevin Bacon’s daughter — portrays the troubled Cotter in the film and she says it was a tough role, and audiences aren’t ready.

“Truthfully, I wasn’t fully aware of how much this part would wear on me when I began the movie,” Bacon told Orange Magazine. “It’s physically demanding, because your body doesn’t understand the difference between acting and real life. But honestly, I don’t know that anything can prepare you for an experience like ‘Smile.’”

Smile opens in theaters on Friday, September 30.
