Reportedly this Werner Herzog directed, David Lynch produced horror based on a true story has finished filming, and I have to say I'm really excited, especially because it stars one of my favorite actors, Michael Shannon, alongside Willem Dafoe and Chloe Sevigny. I've emailed asking for a larger version of the poster, so let's hope we get one soon. Spoilers ahead!

Based on a harrowing true story… The film opens as officers arrive at the scene –a typical middle-class neighborhood in San Diego. The suspect has barricaded himself inside a home and appears to have taken hostages. Two friends he had urgently telephoned earlier that morning arrive, but too late. As they and their neighbors try to come to grips with what has happened, they tell their stories to the detective in charge of the crime scene. In a series of flashbacks, the bizarre story of Brad Macallam begins to emerge. After an ill-fated white-water kayaking trip in a distant land, Brad finds readjustment to suburban life increasingly difficult. As his disaffection grows and his relations with those around him become strained, he glimpses a world more vivid and strangely frightening than others can see. The detectives try to penetrate the mystery of his story, but the questions only multiply. Brad’s unfolding personal and family drama leads to an obsession with the ancient play, finally driving him to murder.


More as we get it. Lynch dude, hurry up on the Jodorowsky project!
