Well, this is slightly disturbing. Buzz from the Cannes Film festival is that legendary producer Edward Pressman will be teaming up with filmmaker David Gordon Green (who has been trying to develop a remake of Dario Argento’s Susperia for quite sometime) to produce Adam Bhala Lough’s Splatter Sisters. Splatter Sisters is a sexploitation-serial-killer-slasher-road-movie circa 1989 that has Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood attached to star.
Green told Variety that “This is a role Marilyn Manson was born to play, and with Evan Rachel Wood bringing dramatic gravity to the ensemble, I have no doubt this will take the horror genre to a new level,“. And according to Pressman, “Lough’s unique talent and energy will make ‘Splatter Sisters’ a very special and markedly commercial film. I’ve always been attracted to smart movies about killers made by directors with a real vision,”.
This is the first planned film in franchise of what they hope to be a new horror sub-genre called “Skinemax Cinema” which would mimic the feel of late night direct to cable movies.
If Marilyn Manson is the new level of horror genre, count me out.
