A really exciting News Bite to kick off with. We were given information on indie horror movie Reminiscence. Based on true events and physics, “Reminiscence” tells the story of a couple that trying to experiment time and blackhole theories. It sounds like a really interesting idea, and not one that’s really been explored in a horror context. Here’s the official synopsis – “A Slovak physicist Miska, had been working on black-hole theories and their connections with the magnetic fields in space. From her long researches she came out with some important results about the unproved parallel time dimensions. She found every 6 years, planets of our solar system come to a special position that effect each other’s magnetic fields and on their intersection areas, a temporally new magnetic field occurs. This could be used as a gateway to a black-hole. A gateway to parallel worlds. She defined the magnetic fields that will occur on earth. And the closest one to Slovakia will be in a town called Cesme in Turkey. She decided to go there with her boyfriend Akcay to research and experiment the event which she is expecting. But what they will face is much beyond the human mind”
We’re not entirely sure what to expect from a film titled German Angst – but it is an intriguing project. The project brings three German directors together for a trio of nightmares in a horror anthology format – Jorg Buttgereit (Nekromantik, Der Todesking), Andreas Marchall(Tears of Kali, Masks) and Michael Kosakowoski (Zero Killed).
The first episode, Jörg Buttgereit’s “Final Girl”, tells the story of a young girl who lives alone with her guinea pig in a rundown apartment in Berlin. But is she really alone? In the bedroom lies a man, bound and gagged. In the episode “Alraune” by Andreas Marschall, a young man stumbles upon a secret sex club in Berlin’s nightlife that promises the ultimate sexual frontier experience by using a drug made from the roots of the legendary Mandragora plant. But the ecstatic experiences have horrific side effects. “Make A Wish” by Michal Kosakowski is a disturbing fable in which a deaf-mute couple of Polish origin are attacked by a sadistic Neo-Nazi gang. In possession of a powerful amulet, the couple try to turn the tables on their assailants and wreak a terrible revenge, albeit paying a heavy price.
We love the artwork and sketches which have been released for the film. Check some of them out below.
