quietearth [Celluloid 07.15.08] movie horror



It may be Finnish but it's shot entirely in English. The website just went live with a full trailer with some nice looking production values and the story revolves around an abandoned mental institution where some twisted stuff took place: "A remote mental institution next to the Russian border was shut down by the police in the early '70s. Dr. Andersson made a series of snuff films using his patients. The doctor filmed all the murders in 8mm, and started to call himself 'The Auteur'. 30 years later a small American film crew has arrived in Finland to shoot a horror movie about the massacre. The movie's director, Steven, is engaged in his first feature with his DoP Darius and gaffer Mike from L.A.. The leading actress is a Finnish rising star, Lisa, who's dreaming about Hollywood. Dr. Andersson is played by a famous B-movie actor with a big ego. Everything is going according to plan until two Finnish sound guys discover something evil hidden in the basement: the original snuff films shot by The Auteur. Steven is stimulated by the raw and brutal snuff film material, and starts to rewrite the script. The scenes are not real enough. Everything changes when he finds The Auteur's 8mm film camera. Now he is ready to shoot his masterpiece - the film for which he will be remembered. Soon the crew realizes that they are the stars of the film. Instead of making a horror film, they are in one. The Auteur is slaying the Skeleton Crew one by one. There's no sequel for you!" Check out the trailer after the break.
