The Round-up: Cana­dian Hor­ror

Empire (UK) - - RE.VIEW -

the CANA­DIAN Hor­ror is thriv­ing, with a Haunted Sex Mo­tel Cin­e­matic uni­verse in the off­ing. Jeff Ma­her’s Bed Of The Dead fea­tures a four-poster made out of a gal­lows tree which winds up in a club where folks set on an orgy are trapped on it by de­monic forces. Cody Cala­han, co-writer of Bed Of

The Dead, is the di­rec­tor of Let Her Out, in which bi­cy­cle mes­sen­ger He­len (Alanna Le­vierge) is ob­sessed with what hap­pened to her mom in an­other haunted sex mo­tel. She suf­fers as an­other per­son­al­ity lit­er­ally (and hideously) tries to es­cape her body. else­where, re­make rights to Death

Race 2000 have re­verted to pro­ducer roger Cor­man, who has writer-di­rec­tor G.J. echternkamp bring back the lively, grue­some satire of Paul Bar­tel’s 1975 killers-in-cars skit for Death Race 2050. Cham­pion racer Franken­stein (Manu Ben­nett, per­fectly cast as a mur­der­ous, leather-clad hulk who’s still the san­est man in the movie) com­petes with cos­tumed psy­chos to splat­ter by­standers. things have changed in the gun-lov­ing heart­lands: on the sec­ond day of the race, the pedes­tri­ans shoot back. It’s more stri­dent and cyn­i­cal even than Bar­tel’s film, but it’s hard to dis­like some­thing so com­mit­ted to scur­rilous of­fen­sive­ness.
