As featured a couple of days ago, pictures demonstrating director Tim Burton’s vision for Alice in Wonderland had hit the web. Fangoria has just released two more character pictures showing Alice (Mia Wasikowska) as well as Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee (Matt Lucas). The film features a combination of live-action, CGI, and motion capture and I can’t stand it that its not out until March 2010!

Bloody-Disgusting featured the new poster for ‘Dead Girl’ yesterday along with the below trailer. The film apparently peaked the interest of horror fans during some film festival showings. As a result ‘Dead Girl’ is showing in a limited fashion in parts of the USA throughout July. The poster is pretty average, however the trailer looks suitably creepy, the film details the tale of two teenage boys, “who make a shocking discovery that not only threatens their friendship but also their lives. In a forgotten room of an abandoned asylum, they find a beautiful woman tied to a bed, and soon come to realize she is anything but dead.”
The website is fantastic, I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, there is nothing like efficient use of bugs, in this case flies… they just keep coming and buzzing!!!
So my question is this, to those of you located where the film is showing… Is this the ‘real’ horror film that the genre has been waiting for? Or just another angsty, dare I say it Twatlight (your my girl BJ-C!), just add zombies, pseudo horror romp?
For my money it looks promising with some potential good scares, and we all know my weakness for abandoned (or not) asylums!
Alice in Wonderland may be stretching the bounds of horror, however I am blissing out in anticipation of the release of Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland‘.
There has been released via a number of sites including Dread Central a set of character shots of the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp *sigh*), the White Queen (Anne Hathaway) and The Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter * meep*), in order to tease the masses! The USA Today site features a series of artwork to explore, giving a panoramic view of Burton’s Wonderland.
This is not the first collaboration between Burton and Depp and if their past body of work is anything to go by we are in for a treat. For those of you lucky rabbits who live in New York be sure to get along to the Museum of Modern Art to see the Tim Burton Exhibition (opening November 2009), if not then off with your head! The rest of us will just have to play croquet until Alice in Wonderlands release in March 2010!
