Last fall, Paramount Pictures invited iF Magazine and a handful of other reporters to visit the set of THE UNINVITED in Vancouver, Canada which is a remake of the Asian horror film A TALE OF TWO SISTERS.
The film focuses on Anna (Emily Browning) who has returned home after a stint in the psycho ward after the death of her mom only to find her mom’s evil nurse Rachel (Elizabeth Banks) has married her dad (David Strathairn). Along with her sister Alex (Arielle Kebbel), the two of them start piecing together a mystery that may reveal her mom’s death was not an accident. Along the way, there’s spooky little kids roaming around, a remote cabin, an integral mystery, and of course scares galore. Continue reading
Following up on this find last week regarding the supernatural drama/thriller Silver Cord, ShockTillYouDrop.com went to star Arielle Kebbel (The Uninvited) to get an update on the project. “We have not filmed yet, it’s postponed at the moment,” she reveals. “The movie deserves to get made. To sign on to tell the story was like a dream come true.”
Her desire to participate in the film is genuine for a number of reasons, namely because the plot is inspired by true events. Director and co-writer James Ordonez based much of the story on his brother who was declared clinically dead on multiple occasions. He eventually passed away in 2004. Such an intriguing premise captured Kebbel. “Silver Cord is about a man who suffers from a disease where he’s pronounced dead and actually comes back to life over fourteen times. And every time he crosses over, he has out-of-body experiences and meets up with who he calls the love of his life, a woman named Claudia, who I play. And they’d always pick up where I left off. It’s all about the out-of-body experience. Is he happier in this other world or on Earth?” Continue reading
“High five!” smiles actress Arielle Kebbel, raising her hand, when I confess I’m happy to see Paddy Breathnach’s UK horror movie Red Mist is retaining it’s original title instead of its second, temporary, moniker Freakdog. She agrees, the latter name simply did not fit.
We’re sitting at the Palomar Hotel talking about her turn in the theatrical release The Uninvited, but our conversation has segued to the other genre fare we’ll see her in quite soon, including Red Mist, an Anchor Bay DVD release. In the film, a group of medical students pull a prank on a janitor, sending him into a coma. But he exacts revenge from his hospital bed when one of the students injects him with an experiment drug to revive him. Sarah Carter, Stephen Dillane, Andrew Lee Potts, Michael J. Reynolds and MyAnna Buring co-star. Continue reading
