In fuga dalla Casa della Follia

IMG_3160

Mary and Marsha in the Manor of Madness è il titolo del cortometraggio che vi presentiamo oggi, un divertente incontro tra il mondo di H.P.Lovecraft e le scene comiche alla Scooby-Doo.

Kris e Kurtis Theorin della Something’s Avry Production sono gli ideatori e realizzatori di questo originale video di appena tre minuti che mescola in modo molto simpatico due generi apparentemente distanti tra loro, con un mix di disegni a mano e tecniche 3D.

Buona visione!

 

IMG_3161Mary and Marsha in the Manor of Madness: this is the title of the short film drawn and animated by Kris and Kurtis Theorin from Something’s Avry production, mixing the horror of a lovecraftian world with the humour of a Scooby-Doo chase.

The video is almost three- minutes long and it blends hand-drawn art with 3D techniques.

Shirley Jackson su piccolo e grande schermo

Netflix ha annunciato l’avvio della produzione di una serie tv basata sul romanzo “The Haunting of Hill House“, il capolavoro di Shirley Jackson, che già era stato protagonista di due pellicole hollywoodiane, il bellissimo “Gli invasati” (The Haunting, 1963) di Robert Wise e il più recente ma meno riuscito “Haunting. Presenz” (The Haunting, 1999), con Liam Neeson. La serie sarà composta da una prima stagione di dieci episodi, sotto la direzione di Mike Flanagan, già noto al pubblico dell’horror per film quali “Hush,” “Oculus,” e “Ouija”.

shirley-jackson3-1916-1965La seconda produzione dedicata a Shirley Jackson è il film “We Have Always Lived in the Castle“, la cui uscita nelle sale cinematografiche è prevista per quest’anno, per la regia di Stacie Passon.

 

 

Netflix will develop a series based on the Shirley Jackson horror novel “The Haunting of Hill House”. The series is described as a modern re-imagining of Jackson’s novel. The novel was previously adapted into a feature film in both 1963 and 1999.

The planned 10-episode series come from writer-director Mike Flanagan, who is no stranger to the horror genre. His previous credits include horror films “Hush,” “Oculus,” and the sequel “Ouija: Origin of Evil.”

During this year, another Jackson’s work will be adapted into a mystery thriller movie,  “We Have Always Lived in the Castle“, directed by Stacie Passon.
