OGF5

While some folks might be scratching their heads wondering, “What does Refn have to do with horror films?”..hear me out. Not only is the DRIVE, BRONSON and PUSHER director one of the biggest fans of horror films around, the dude knows his stuff, even having a pretty impressive original one-sheet collection featuring THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST adorning his walls. That alone makes him an honorary horror guy in my mind, and with the fact that he’s developing a MANIAC COP remake, and has said that he based Ryan Gosling’s character in DRIVE on HALLOWEEN‘s The Shape, well…he’s getting some attention from us.

Refn’s next film, the ultra-violent ONLY GOD FORGIVES, is set to open nationwide July 19th via TWC, and we’ve got some brand new character posters, a NSFW clip and the red band trailer for you fright fiends. This one is definitely on my list of anticipated films.
