“The pain, I can assure you, will be exquisite. As for our deaths, there is nothing to fear. Our names will be written on a thousand walls. Our crimes told and retold by our faithful believers. We shall die together in front of their very eyes and give them something to be haunted by. Come with me and be immortal.”
Based on author Clive Barker‘s short story, The Forbidden, 1992’s Candyman is the definitive horror film of the 1990s. Written and directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose (Immortal Beloved), the film stars Virginia Madsen (Dune, Sideways) as Helen Lyle, a Chicago graduate student who is researching urban legends. She stumbles upon a local legend, the Candyman (Tony Todd), a hook-wielding phantom who haunts the city’s notorious Cabrini-Green housing project.
David O. Russell‘s Joy brings reunites Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and Robert De Niro, for as the director would describe in an interview with EW, “an epic, unexpected story about the interior life of one woman’s soul, from the ages of 10 to 40.” This isn’t the first time that the four have worked together on one project. They previously teamed up for the Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook, for which all them earned Academy Award nominations. So expect that same level of performance and directorial effort to be in this latest film.
Though initially just a teaser, we get to see the scope of what O. Russell will give us this winter holiday. Check out the first teaser below.
A trailer has been released for Dead Rising: Watchtower, a movie adaptation of the popular zombie video game series Dead Rising.
