The Fear Monger: Uncovered Shaun Of The Dead Developments And The Babadook Trailer Terrifies
Good day, extinguishers of all things solar. This past week gave us two equally grating slices of horror: Leatherface as a teenager and Let’s Be Cops getting released the same week as everything going on in Ferguson, Missouri. To take your mind off all that, check out the limited release of Jeff Baena’s zombie comedy Life After Beth, which uses winning performances to bring life to a tonally fluctuating plotline. How is Aubrey Plaza not in everything at this point?
In other news, Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston has joined the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which is finally on the road to getting made. Saw V and Grizzly director David Hackl is taking to Kickstarter to get partial funding for his next project, the WWI thriller Earthworks. On September 13th, the documentary Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary will make its world premiere in Hancock, Maine as part of a double feature with the original Pet Sematary. Finally, check out Max Landis performing a homemade version of the iconic transformation scene from his father John Landis’ An American Werewolf in London.
And now Edgar Wright plays with a bit of photography.
Shaun of the Dead Returns in…This One PictureOur culture has by and large left behind physical rolls of film in favor of storage-friendly digital photographs. While that’s fine and dandy for emailing and social media, there was always something exciting about finding a mystery film roll (or even a disposable camera) in a drawer, potential visual bliss hiding in still form. Case in point: remember that one scene in Edgar Wright’s brilliant horror comedy Shaun of the Dead when they first meet Mary, the zombie that they assume is drunk? Ed (Nick Frost) runs back into the house and grabs a camera to grab a camera and – Smile! – he takes a picture or Mary on top of Shaun (Simon Pegg). The image seen above is apparently the very same photo.
The still comes from Edgar Wright’s personal Flickr account, and was dug up by Bloody Disgusting. What else was on that roll of film? Peter Serafinowicz in the shower? Dylan Moran and Bill Nighy arm wrestling? Simon Pegg and Spaced co-star Jessica Stevenson making out? Check out the rest of the film roll on the page!
