As the day turns into night, Andre faces strange occurrences that lead him to believe he is not there alone, and someone or something is watching him.

THE HILLS RUN RED WITH AN “R” RATING

Posted on 16th January 2009 by aaron in Indie Horror News,News - Tags: , , ,

Just read this juicy little bit on the upcomming horror flick THE HILLS RUN RED concerning the R-Rating the film just recently received from the (hated) MPAA.  From Shock Till You Drop:

Dave Parker is close to completing The Hills Run Red, a Dark Castle and Warner Premiere production that pulls him back into the cinematic horror fold. And although there’s no release date yet, the MPAA has weighed in on his cut. Surprise, surprise…it got an R for “strong bloody horror violence and torture, grisly images, sexual content, nudity, language and some drug use.”

Hills follows a film fanatic whose obsession with finding a complete print of an infamous slasher movie leads him and two friends into the backwoods where the film was shot. They realize too late that filming never ended—and now they must survive a nightmarish onslaught or become part of the movie forever.

This flick sounds wicked cool.  Strong bloody horror violence and torture, grisly images, sexual content, nudity, language, and some drug use…what more could you want?

The trailer for Dark Castle’s new THE HILLS RUN RED is supposed to be debuting at SDCC today.  The movie was co-written by David J. Schow (Leatherface: TCM 3, The Crow) and is “in the vein of horror classics from the 1970s and 80s, Dark Castle’s The Hills Run Red follows Tyler, a film fanatic whose obsession with finding a complete print of an infamous slasher movie leads him and two friends into the backwoods where the film was shot. They realize too late that filming never ended—and now they must survive a nightmarish onslaught or become part of the movie forever.”–Shock Till You Drop.  Might be kind of cool.  Check below for some initial Poster Art and check back later for that trailer:
