I See Dead Babies!!!

January 15, 2009

I wouldn’t say I’m a die-hard horror fan, but I’ve certainly got a number of horror films in my DVD collection. Horror is just a frustrating genre to follow, ’cause so many of the new films that come out these days are absolute rubbish (residual brit talk I haven’t shaken off from my trip to London, yet. Sorry!). Few filmmakers really know what it takes to make a true horror film. It doesn’t always have to be blood and guts, or spooky sounds and shadows and reflections. Sometimes the concept can be enough to make your skin crawl. It was Teeth last year, the heartwarming coming-of-age tale of a young girl who discovered her vagina had a vicious set of chompers.

This year, we’ve got Grace. Chud has provided web surfers with a look at the poster, as well as the summary of the film;

The film is about a women who is in an accident and saddled with a dead baby that she decides to carry to full term. The mother won’t give up her dead kid and carries him around with her, wishing him back to life. The crazy thing is…. it doesn’t stay dead for long. You can sort of assume where the story goes from there.
 
The film is actually an adaptation of writer/director Paul Solet’s previous short film Grace, which starred Brian Austin Green, if that’s the right word to use (can any movie really star Brian Austin Green?). This feature length version features Jordan Ladd (Penelope from Club Dread) as the mother.

Sounds like fun!
