As always, the concept behind Random Ramblings has been completely and 100% ripped off from Brian Solomon of The Vault of Horror.
Rumor has it, the brilliant mind behind the novel Let The Right One In has nabbed himself another movie deal. His novel after LTROI (which spawned the best horror movie of the new millennium as well as one of the best horror movie remakes in existence) is a zombie tale titled Handling the Undead. It was written in 2005 but was finally translated into English in 2009. A Swedish movie is in the works and if it ends up anyway similar to its sister film, we're going to be in for an absolutely astonishing zombie film. Keep it up, Lindqvist.
After what seems like FOREVER, there's FINALLY going to be a Silent Hill sequel. I wasn't as hardcore into the games as most horror freaks (I never was one to have gaming consoles) but I absolutely loved the film. Michael J. Bassett has been announced as director for it and it's been said to be filmed in 3-D. I'm not so sure how I feel about the 3-D thing, but if it's Silent Hill, I'm in. It doesn't seem like it's going to continue the story of Rose and her darling daughter, but it will be picking up with Heather Mason and her father of Silent Hill 3 (video game) notoriety.
I've finally found a film to give me the willies. Australian horror flick Lake Mungo is officially the most unsettling film I've seen in the past five or so years. I'm not saying that Lake Mungo is a film that is going to make you pee your pants in fear or hide behind a bucket of extra buttery popcorn that you didn't want to pay for but you felt pressured by the cute girl behind the counter to buy it, but it is surely a film that sticks with you for days after. Filmed much like an episode of Dateline, Lake Mungo is a film that left me with goosebumps and my jaw firmly attached to the floor. It's a slow burn, but well worth the results.
