Tom Six’s NEWEST film is COMING: & It’s NOT another “Human Centipede” sequel!

Whether you love him or hate him, Tom Six has made a name for himself in Hollywood; with a trilogy of films that people aren’t exactly proud to say they know by name. With Six’s grand finale – The Human Centipede III: Full Sequence, coming to DVD/Blu ray on October 27th, [read my review on the third film here!] the director is now officially ready to release yet another treat for fans: this time, in the form of his debut film: [which was initially released in 2008!] What The F**k?!, [which is also known as “I Love Dries” in some countries] which will also be coming to home video, with English subtitles, in the near future.. though no exact date has been confirmed as of yet. But, knowing that international audiences are getting a film [albeit, almost 8 years later!] tells me that Six was waiting for the perfect time to re-release it. And Who knows? It’s possible this is a decent film, which’ll help sooth the feeling of how bad Final Sequence was.. There’s no trailer for this film released yet, though I’m sure if you were to dig deep into Youtube, you might be able to find something related from it’s initial release. However, we do have a synopsis for the film, which after reading it, it naturally sounds fucked up! [though, what do we really expect from the man who gave us Human Centipede?] Curious? Read on!

“What the F**k?! is an hilarious black comedy about famous Dutch singer Dries Roelvink, who is kidnapped by his two biggest fans to their trailer in the middle of nowhere. They don’t want an autograph though, but something completely different. As it turns out, the couple’s biggest wish is to have a baby of their own, but the husband is infertile. Dries is forced to live with this gruesome twosome until he gets the woman pregnant..”


If that’s not interesting, I don’t know what is! [I use the term ‘interesting’ very lightly] Because we don’t have anything we can really work with yet, I’ve included the film’s poster and a few screenshots from the film itself below! This way, you can decide for yourself if the film looks worthwhile; or a waste of time..The part that truly raises questions to me, is why Dries Roelvink agreed to play himself? Especially, based on the story! It doesn’t help that reviews I’ve seen online have been somewhat positive..though, the viewers may enjoy this kind of thing..






Once again, no trailer has been released for the film yet – at least, not an international one [don’t hold me to that, there might be no trailer at all.. yet!] but the film has an interesting concept..at least as far as Tom Six goes. The one thing that has me concerned is that it’s a black comedy, [much like Human Centipede III was] meaning it could go either way. Also, being as this is a re-release of Six‘s first film; who knows where it’ll go? As I said above, I’ve read a few positive reviews on this film, and that could be a good thing..or not.

How do you feel though about What The F**k?! ? Is it a unique concept, that will make it become a good watch/a cult classic? Or is it something that’s going to make Tom Six‘s name skyrocket through Hollywood.. as one of the worst directors of this day and age? Let me know in a comment or two! I’m both genuinely concerned, but also curious about the film.. I’ll probably watch it – just to say I did; but for no other reason!

TRAILER THOUGHTS: The Corpse Of Anna Fritz [2015]

A few days ago, I talked about some of my favorite foreign films that deserved to be watched. [read the whole article] I talked about how they should be given a chance, since many people are the type to shy away from subtitled films; even if they are fantastic. Today, I present to you yet another foreign film: The Corpse Of Anna Fritz.

The plot of the film follows Anna Fritz, a very famous and beautiful actress, who is widely considered one of the most desired women in the world. Suddenly, she dies. Enter Pau – a shy and introverted young man who works as an orderly at the hospital where Anna Fritz was taken to. [for her autopsy, etc] Often, when the body of a woman is brought to the morgue, he can’t resist watching her. When he enters the morgue with the corpse of Anna Fritz, he decides to take a picture of her naked body and send it to his friend Ivan. Ivan and Javi are Pau’s only friends, who often visit him while he’s on shift at the hospital. One night, when they are a little drunk, Ivan decides he wants to see the naked body of Anna… and because she isn’t going anywhere.. They agree that they can’t lose this opportunity.

talk about a “touchy” topic.. I am so sorry.

The Corpse Of Anna Fritz is being made by Hèctor Hernández Vicens, and surprisingly, this film marks his directorial debut! With the film’s obvious controversial nature, it will no doubt get people talking at SXSW this year when its given it’s World Premiere on Sunday, March 15th as part of the Midnight’s lineup. When I read the plot, and I watch the trailer, I can’t help but think of the movie Deadgirl, except instead of an abandoned asylum, which Deadgirl took place in, this film seems to take place in a morgue!

As someone who works in the funeral industry, I’m not entirely sure how to take the concept of this movie. I enjoy controversial film, hell – I like somewhat fucked up films; but this one is something else. I understand, as a foreign film [Spanish], it’s bound to cross some boundaries; but I wonder how North American audiences are going to take to it: positive? negative? I’m not able to say at this point. I guess it’s just a matter of actually watching the film – just to see how it plays out. At the end of the trailer, we see that Fritz opens her eyes, so maybe she didn’t die? I just hope the trailer didn’t ruin the film entirely; I want some surprises.. Although, if you missed it and/or haven’t seen the trailer, be sure to check it out in it’s entirety below!

Of course, my real question is; how many of you are planning on seeing this controversial film? Does it catch your attention? Or does the idea of a Spanish horror film regarding necrophilia turn you away? Let me know in a comment or two on here, or even on Facebook. While you’re over there, why not hit that “like” button?
