Watch The Trailer For Ben Wheatley’s ‘Sightseers’


Posted by:

Ben Wheatley is a filmmaker whose career seems aimed directly north. He wowed audiences with Down Terrance, and then proceeded to shove hot coals into our agape mouths with his followup Kill List. To say we are highly anticipating his next film is like saying a zombie uprising occurring simultaneously with an alien invasion and giant monster attack on all major cities is a bad day. The first trailer for Wheatley’s Sightseers presents us with a side of the director we haven’t seen before, or at least not to this degree. Namely, it looks funny. Savage, violent, and horrifying…and funny. The nonchalance and, frankly, callous amusement with which this couple murders innocent people is high-scarious. The trailer is a bit long, but I didn’t feel particularly spoiled after the last title card faded from sight. Take a look at it below, and think twice before planning your next vacation.

Sightseers is out in the UK in November, hopefully we’ll get it stateside soon.

DAYBREAKERS, ZOMBIELAND and SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD all Head to Fantastic Fest!

The second wave of titles for this year’s Fantastic Fest are ravaging the interwebs and the Twitters and I couldn’t be more excited.  Not only will this be my first real film festival (I’m not counting the Chicago International Film Festival), but it’ll be my first Fantastic Fest.  From everything I’m hearing, that’s like having your hymen broken by King Kong.  Say it’s going to leave an impression is an understatement.

Click here to remember the past to see the first wave of titles and read on for the second batch of features with further details at the official Fantastic Fest Blog.  Considering there’s still a third list of titles waiting in the wings, I think I may have to upgrade the above analogy from having sex with King Kong to getting raped by the entire girth of that asteroid worm that tried to eat the Millennium Falcon in EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.
