quietearth [Celluloid 07.03.10] Ireland (Republic of) movie news horror action thriller



Peter MacDonald, whose directed a few things and worked on quite a few big films is getting $12.5 million to direct whats being called a "Muilitary Mutant Horror" which will be shot in Serbia and stars Tom Felton from the Harry Potter Films (like I care) among others. Filming is set for the end of the year.

Eastern Russia. One week before Christmas. A government lab is awakened by the arrival of some local poultry farmers. But why bring them here? Each of the men are rabid trying to bite anyone who comes close to them. Why are they this way? What is the cure? Neither question can be answered.


Anchorage Alaska. Three days before Christmas. A large container ship, from Russia unloads its cargo. Amongst the containers is a shipment of turkeys ready to be served up on Christmas Day to the locals, including the local army base.

Christmas Day Sgt. Gerry Maguire and three others, following the wrath of their commander, are sent on patrol as the rest of the base tuck into a lavish meal. On their return that evening, Gerry and the others enter what looks like a desserted base. But little do the know what they are about to be faced with could change Christmas, and possibly the entire country, forever.

you know...these people who make low-budget films (i'm assuming it's low-budget) have to learn to write more intriguing and professional synopses of their stories. "Why are they this way? What is the cure? Neither question can be answered." Those are lines from a 6th grade novel.

And then...these people need to resist the temptation from explaining and detailing almost the entire film in three paragraphs.

Such nuances are actual turn offs. Audiences want to be surprised and see new things, and not know what to expect.

If they want to make a horror film out of an Army vs. zombies scenario, they should option Craig DiLouie's novel Tooth and Nail.
