Bloody Disgusting has an exclusive first ever look at Shut In, the latest horror thriller from team that brought you Delivery: The Beast Within, which will have its World Premiere at the 2015 LA Film Festival!
In even bigger news, the film has also been nominated for the fest’s Nightfall Award — honoring those films from the bizarre to the horrifying, and meant to be watched after dark!
In Shut In, “Beth Riesgraf stars as Anna, a woman who suffers from agoraphobia so crippling that when a trio of criminals breaks into her house, she cannot bring herself to flee. But what the intruders don’t realize is that agoraphobia is not her only psychosis.“
The film also stars Rory Culkin (Scream 4), Martin Starr (Dead Snow 2, HBO’s “Silicon Valley”) and Jack Kesy (FX’s “The Strain”).
Shut In is the debut feature from Adam Schindler, one half of LA based film collective Type AB, which was behind last year’s festival favorite Delivery: The Beast Within. That film also World Premiered at the LA Film Festival back in 2013, where it secured US distribution through Salient Media/Tribeca. TJ Cimfel and David White penned the screenplay.
Jeremy Irons, Virginia Madsen, AnnaSophia Robb and Rory Culkin have signed on to star in the action-comedy film Monumental.
The film, which will be directed by Brett Simon, is being shopped to foreign buyers at the Cannes film market by Kathy Morgan International. CAA is handling domestic rights.
Eric Fischer and Brianna Lee Johnson from Dead Fish Films produced Monumental, which was written by Annie Burgstede and Chad Faust. The film will begin filming in July.
Directed by Brett Simon (Assassination of a High School President), Monumental is described as a high-octane romance. Harley (Culkin) and Steph (Robb) have accidentally killed their tyrant boss and kidnapped his wisecracking Vietnam Vet relative (Irons). An FBI agent (Madsen) is hot on their trail and closing in fast. As they speed across the country in search of freedom, their epic journey culminates in a fiery showdown.
The film is executive produced by Aaron Gilbert, Robert Odgen Barnum, 3 Point Capital, Ksana Golod, James Bryant and George Parra, with London Pacific Finance providing development funding.
Congrats Rory! I think its the first time we are going to see him in a “action-comedy” film! Source
This video of Rory auditioning (I don’t have any information about maybe it was for this project? I don’t know) for something called The Magicians has appeared on Tumblr.
They’ve been talking about turning the non-fiction chronicle of black metal, Lords of Chaos, into a movie since at least 2009, when they announced that teen heartthrob and Twilight star Jackson Rathbone would be playing Varg Vikernes. Although that version of the flick (obviously) never came to fruition, Bloody Disgusting now reports that the film is in production with Rory Culkin (Scream 4, Signs) and Caleb Landry Jones (Antiviral, X-Men: First Class, The Last Exorcist) in the leads.
The article doesn’t specify who’s playing who, but they do claim the film is being made as a thriller, which suggests to me that one of these actors is playing Vikernes while the other is playing Øystein Aarseth, a.k.a. Euronymous, who was murdered by Vikernes in 1993.
The movie is being directed by Jonas Åkerlund, who was the drummer in Bathory for a year before going on to become a big shot music video director who has made clips for Metallica, Rammstein, and Satyricon, amongst others.
Here I copy two pictures on the photogallery and a new interview (here) of Rory and Lou at the Annapolis Film Festival a few days ago.
“Gabriel” is a powerful movie about a troubled young man who is not aware of how pervasive and far reaching his own mental illness is. The 5 pm screening on Saturday at St. John’s College will be followed by a Q&A with Writer/Director Lou Howe as well as Rory Culkin.
Get tickets for Saturday or Sunday shows before they sell out!

Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired all North American rights to Lou Howe’s directorial debut Gabriel, which stars Rory Culkin as a troubled teen.
Culkin stars as the titular character, a vulnerable teen at his psychological breaking point, struggling to keep it together in the wake of his father’s suicide. The synopsis continues: “Convinced that reuniting with an ex-girlfriend holds the answers to his troubles, Gabriel risks everything in a desperate pursuit that will take him to uncharted and unexpected places and test the limits of those closest to him.”
“Gabriel is a gem – a highly impressive debut feature that is an emotional, yet unsentimental character study with an incredible lead performance by Rory Culkin,” said Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger and David Laub in a statement. “We’re extremely excited to be able to share this film with the world.”
Oscilloscope plans a release later this year.
