From Black Devil Doll director Jonathan Lewis comes "The Black Box"! (Trailer)

I have my favorite indie horror directors and I usually keep track of what they're up to. But yesterday, I recently found out what Jonathan Lewis (director of Black Devil Doll) had been working on. Can you say a horror anthology movie?

With The Black Box, we are going to get 4 stories wrapped around a little boy watching his favorite horror TV show.

Here be the plot.

Eight year old Bobby is a strange boy. Between spying on his teenage sister's sexual exploits, and peeping at his prostitute mother in the nude. Bobby loves to watch the midnight horror shows. But when the host of Bobby's favorite horror show begins speaking to Him directly, and the people in his life dreadfully appear to him on television, the lines of reality and fiction start to blur!!

So what are the 4 mini flicks in The Black Box? See below.
  • "Freddie and the Goblins" segment by Scott Dawson & David Sherbrook
  • "Wax Off" segment by Buz Danger Wallick (starring Joe Pilato)
  • "Thirsty" segment by Andrew Kasch (starring Tiffany Shepis, Joe Lynch andMichael Bailey Smith)
  • "Mister Video"segment by Jonathan Lewis & Jerry Franck.
To check out a trailer or preview of the segments above, head over to the video section on the Facebook page for The Black Box.

Now that we got all that out of the way, you can finally check out the trailer below.

The big news is that THE BLACK BOX world premiere will take place at The New Beverly Cinema (that be in Los Angeles) on Friday night October 29th 2010 at Midnight!

You can buy tickets here.

I'll admit, I've watched the trailer a few times now and it looks bloody awesome. With Lewis teamed up with Infested Films, this horror anthology might make Creepshow look like a Disney film. Trick R Treat? That was so 2009.

The Black Box might make us all start talking to the TV.

  1. We screened Thirsty this year and it is so 'effin great. It's directed by Andre Kasch (the Never Sleep Again Elm St doc) and it's a mashup of clerks and Maniac. Dont get me started how babely Tiffany Shepis looks in the film.

  2. All I could think about while watching this was how much more awesome it would have been if it was Bottomfeeder.

    That said, I'll probably end up paying for it on VOD.

    This recent wave of grindhouseploitation has been extremely hit or miss to me.

    (An emphatic) Yes = Gutterballs, Machete

    No = DeathProof, Header, Hangar, Kill, Easterbunny, Kill!, Planet Terror
