These Trailers Will Put A Screw In Your Mind, And Probably Your Sensibilities Too!
Don't say I didn't warn you, and I also never said I liked these trailers. But check them out by all means!
The first The 3 Rs, by David Lynch, and appears to be a trailer for the Vienna Film Festival. This is Lynch in full blown Erasherhead Lost Highway batshit insane mode, and is what happens when you give him free reign.
Second, we have the trailer for John Dies At The End, which is basically Donnie Darko on crack (or soya sauce, as it would appear). It actually has quite a good cast - Paul Giamatti and Doug Jones (who you have seen before, but not without some costume). The director is Don Coscarelli, who directed Phantasm and Buppa Ho Tep. Have not seen, but I will make a plan!
And finally, here is a full trailer for Tom Six's The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence. I won't say much - it probably deserves a post on it's own. Needless to say, it looks pretty damn rough. This is what the UK Film Board had to say (in banning the film outright):
It is the Board’s conclusion that the explicit presentation of the central character’s obsessive sexually violent fantasies is in breach of its Classification Guidelines and poses a real, as opposed to a fanciful, risk that harm is likely to be caused to potential viewers.
Don't expect this one at Cinema Nouveau anytime soon.
