The Killing Room

As horror fans we know that almost every film in our beloved genre is in some way rumination on the anxieties of our times. Thus it is down to the skill and vision of the filmmaker to make the delivery system enthralling enough to keep us there for an hour and a half. We jumped for Red Scare body snatchers, irradiated ants, civil rights zombies, end of flower-power Texas cannibals and so on. It should be no surprise that the era of terror has been a fertile time for filmmakers at all levels of production.

The trailer for the upcoming film "The Killing Room" is finally out. The film is directed by Jonathan
Liebesman, which John Shelton pointed out the dubiousness of in his post on Sundance 2009 back in January. There are some good actors in the film, though, and this trailer has me at least intrigued.

In the film the government conducts a secret project in which four men are gathered in an isolated room to determine once and for all if Chloe Sevigny is more creepy than she is hot. I for one am hotly anticipating the results.
