Not sure how I was out of touch on this, but there's a new film from director Adam Mason starring his frequent collaborator Andrew Howard. It's called LUSTER, and looks like an interesting taken on the horror and found footage genres. Mason is the man responsible for controversial horror films like BROKEN (2006), THE DEVIL'S CHAIR (2006), BLOOD RIVER (2009), and the highly-experimental PIG (2010). Adam apparently likes to work with the same people on each film, which would explain his frequent use of Andrew Howard (who is terrific) and Guy Burnet. Both of those actors also appear in LUSTER, which co-stars Xander Berkeley, Billy Burke, Tommy Flanagan, and Holly Valance. Above we have the poster (which is awesome), obviously very Saul Bass influenced. Below we have a teaser trailer and a full trailer. Warning, the teaser trailer is rather spoiler-filled, though it doesn't make me want to see the movie any less. The full trailer underneath isn't to the same degree. I will note, some of this info has already been on the web at various sites, but it's nonetheless taken our interest, so if you have any further info, please e-mail us.
And here's the full trailer, which though a little spoiler-ish still looks rather interesting. Gotta say, this one definitely intrigues me. We'll keep digging for info on LUSTER and let you know what we find. So far I can't find a release date or any other distributor info, but hopefully something will pop up soon.
LUSTER should be opening soon... we'll keep ya posted!
