Creepshow 2

We had great fun creating this new trailer for the cult classic horror movie, recently re-released by our friends at Arrow Video. We created multiple trailers to advertise the release on physical, digital and on the Arrow Video Channel on iTunes and Amazon.

Titans of terror George A. Romero and Stephen King deliver yet another selection of blood-curdling tales in Creepshow 2, the follow-up to the 1982 horror classic. In “Old Chief Wood’nhead”, a group of young hoodlums face retribution from an unlikely source after looting a local hardware store. Meanwhile, “The Raft” sees a group of horny teens wishing they’d read the warning signs first before taking a dip in a remote lake. Finally, an uptight businesswoman finds herself with some unwanted company following a hit-and-run incident in “The Hitch-hiker”. Retaining the same EC comic book flavor that made the original such a hit, Creepshow 2, this time directed by long-time Romero collaborator Michael Gornick, is a standout horror anthology from the minds of two of the genre’s master craftsmen.

Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence

We were proud to be asked by our friends at Arrow Video to craft a new trailer for the classic film. Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence for its restored release on the Arrow Academy label. We worked hard to give the trailer a fresh take, but with a classic feel, and were lucky to be given permission by Ryuichi Sakamoto to use his score in our new 5.1 mix and have the edit signed off by the film’s producer Jeremy Thomas.

David Bowie stars in Nagisa Oshima’s 1983 Palme d’Or-nominated portrait of resilience, pride, friendship and obsession among four very different men confined in the stifling jungle heat of a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in Java during World War II.

Produced by Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor, The Sheltering Sky), it was the first English-language film by Oshima (Death by Hanging, In the Realm of the Senses, Gohatto), a leading light of Japanese New Wave cinema, and provided breakthrough big-screen roles for comedian Takeshi Kitano and musician Ryuichi Sakamoto, who also composed the film’s hauntingly memorable BAFTA-winning score. This powerful wartime drama was adapted from Laurens van der Post’s autobiographical novel ‘The Seed and the Sower’ (1963) by screenwriter Paul Mayersberg (The Man Who Fell to Earth).

The trailer was premiered on The Hollywood News site.

The Rifleman (Blizzard Of Souls)

UK trailer for Parkland Pictures with all production in-house at GVFilm as we continue remote workflows during the Covid-19 Crisis.

The Rifleman pays stark witness to the horrors and brutality of the First World War, as seen through the eyes of an innocent 17-year-old farm-boy turned soldier. Though he is underage, and his dad, a former marksman, is overage for the army, they are both conscripted into one of Latvia’s first national battalions. The thrill of training is soon followed by reality, as shells burst around them in the endless mud. He grows up on the battlefield, fighting at the side of his father and brother, their lives are constantly in jeopardy. Adapted from the book by Aleksandrs Grins, which was banned in the U.S.S.R., the story was based on Grins’ own war experiences in a Latvian battalion.

Available on digital download from August 10, 2020, and on DVD from August 24, 2020.
