Oh, Lordi, what next?
After last week’s Reel News report on plans to make the comedy Eurovision: The Movie comes news from the Finnish film industry at Cannes that Lordi (above), who won the song contest last year, are starring in Dark Floors – a horror film, inevitably – due for Christmas release in Finland. Mr Lordi, as he prefers to be called, will be joined by bandmates Amen the Unstoppable Mummy, Awa the Vampire Countess, Ox the Hellbull and Kita the Manbeast.
Two versions of Dark Floors are planned, said producer Markus Selin. In addition to a PG movie there will be a hardcore adult version.
