Fresh From the Slab: Horror Movie News November 4, 2012


Here’s your weekly horror movie news, served up fresh from the slab!


The first trailer for the independent Chilean thriller Sendero has been released. See below for the description and the trailer.

Sendero, the horror/survival chilean film directed by Lucio A Rojas, tells the story of Ana, a university student who, along with her friends, go to spend a weekend to a relative’s country house located in the central zone of Chile. During the trip, these young people will be kidnapped by a weird family who are working for an organized group belonging to the highest political circles of the region.

Rojas says, “The story has been inspired by real criminal events that took place after Pinochet’s government. In the nearly 90′s, dozens of kidnappings were reported and the whereabouts of this people were never discovered. Those incidents cannot be ascribed to the political context of the previous decades in our country. An investigation carried out in 1996 concluded that it was all plotted by a highly powerful – in terms of political and economical influence – group, which for years subsisted on the shadow of some small city in central zone of Chile”.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D

New, behind-the-scenes video has been released. Take  a look at it here!

Picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace.  The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible.  Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends.  Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family – or so they thought.

Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had.  After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars… (synopsis from UHM).
