I love independent film. A long time ago, in the time of dragons, I used to want to make movies myself. So when I see something special, I feel like it’s my job as a film nerd to plug the hell out of it. I’m elated excited to bring you an interview with Mr. Nicholas McCarthy who just recently returned from Sundance 2011 in support of his moody thriller “The Pact”. Growing up on horror films it takes a lot to make the hair on my arms stand up and having recently watched The Pact, I can say with total sincerity that Mr. McCarthy has the directing chops to scare the crap out of you.
This just dropped at 6:00 Est. Be one of the first 1000 to watch this bad boy!
In a mad dash to beat other more powerful
mutant media outlets to the punch, I didn’t get a chance to write my opinion until after this post went live. All I can say is WOW. I’m totally blown away by the style and atmosphere of this trailer. The fact that the trailer used footage from Brian Singer’s X-men, and didn’t completely throw out the previously established mythology has me elated. Were the X-men films perfect? Hell no, but what you can’t argue with is that prior to Singer’s X-men the “super hero” film genre was not taken seriously. I’m happy to see the use of traditional X-men colors, and love the fact that the X-men were somehow part of the Cuban Missile crisis. I cannot wait to see more!
