Severin Taps French Heavyweights For THE THEATRE BIZARRE 2: GRAND GUIGNOL!
2011’s THE THEATRE BIZARRE was a horror anthology film that caught me off guard. I didn’t expect myself to really like it, but I definitely did. Sure, some of the segments were stronger than others, but that comes with every anthology, and as a whole it was very solid. It was also great to see Buddy Giovinazzo (COMBAT SHOCK) back, his segment of the film being my favorite.
Today, the folks at Bloody Disgusting broke the news that Severin has tapped a who’s who of French directors for THE THEATRE BIZARRE 2: GRAND GUIGNOL, including Olivier Abbou (TERRITORIES), Lucile Hadzihalilovic, Pascal Laugier (MARTYRS, THE TALL MAN), Talal Selhami, Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (INSIDE, LIVID), and Xavier Gens (FRONTIER(s), THE DIVIDE), who is still in talks. The B-D crew also received a pretty cool early sales art poster for it as well:
Sounds pretty awesome to me, what do you all think?
