The Splat Pack Trailer

A film like The Splat Pack is only as good as its interviews. I normally avoid these types of fan-service talking heads retrospectives but, as a horror fan, I must say they’ve managed to collect a pretty enticing group of filmmakers. You’ve got Alexandre Aja (High Tension), Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Rogue), Neil Marshall (The Descent, Doomsday) and Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel), among others. The film looks at this new breed of horror directors — known as the splat pack — and how they’ve managed to bring the gore and terror back into mainstream multiplexes. Oddly enough, the film seems to have been produced by Wyrd Stuff, a sci fi/horror news and reviews blog. On top of that, the method of distribution looks to be relegated to direct download on their own site. There aren’t many details beyond that, so if you’re interested in checking out The Splat Pack, you’ll have to keep an eye out on Wyrd Stuff.
