First ‘Summer of ’84’ Trailer Looks Like ‘Stranger Things’ with a Serial Killer

summer-of-84-movie-slice

The filmmaking collective known as RKSS delivered an alt-history apocalypse with 2015’s Turbo Kid, now directors François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell are taking us back to the titular Summer of ’84 for a thoroughly throwback serial killer yarn. Ahead of the film’s Sundance debut, Gunpowder Sky has debuted the first trailer and it has a distinctly familiar Stranger Things vibe, dripping with Amblin/Stephen King stylized atmosphere — not to mention a buncha kids on bikes — but keeping Turbo Kid in mind, I’m thinking this retro thriller is gonna be a little darker and more twisted.

Summer of ’84 follows a group on young teens who spend a hazy summer coming of age and assembling the clues to track down the so-called Cape May Killer terrorizing their town. There’s just one problem — all signs point to one of the

German Director Fatih Akin Looks to Hometown Serial Killer for Next Film

Director Fatih Akin, whose terrorist-attack film “In the Fade,” starring Diane Kruger, was selected as Germany’s Oscar submission, will turn next to a drama inspired by a serial killer from his hometown.

Akin is adapting Heinz Strunk’s bestselling 2016 novel “Der goldene Handschuh” (“The Golden Glove”), which chronicles the true story of Fritz Honka, a physically and psychologically scarred serial killer who murdered four women in Hamburg’s red light district between 1970 and 1975. Honka picked up his victims at the notorious bar Zum Goldenen Handschuh, where he was a regular.

The project holds particular interest for Akin, who was born in Hamburg in 1973. “The film is based on a novel from my hometown,” he said. “It takes place in my neighborhood in the ’70s. The serial killer just lived, like, two streets away from me.

“It’s a slasher film,” Fatih said, but also “a

Through fears of serial killer, Tampa neighborhood looks for ways to come together

After a fourth killing in a Tampa neighborhood, police are still working to catch a killer and residents are looking for ways to feel safe again.

For their safety, the Salvation Army is urging those who live on the streets in Seminole Heights to come to their shelters at night, Spectrum Bay News 9 reported. Shuttles to transport those interested in staying with the Salvation Army at their downtown location are also being offered.

Tampa police, assisted by the FBI, ATF, FLDE and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, continue to scour the streets of Seminole Heights and hours of surveillance footage provided by community members.

“Now is not the time to clam up,” Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn said, according to Bay News 9. “Now is not the time to not rat somebody out. Because that literally can be your mother next.”

Never miss a local story.

BBC’s new serial killer show looks really intense and addictive | JOE.ie




By Paul Moore

If you like Luther, The Missing and Line of Duty, this should grab you.

The last time we saw Richard Dormer tackle a villain was when his character in Game of Thrones, Lord Beric Dondarrion, was igniting his sword to take on the army of the dead, but in his new show, Dormer is using a different approach to confront evil.

The premise of the show sounds very interesting. Basically, the new BBC drama will tell the story of a serial killer in reverse.

If that’s not enough to pique your interest then you’ll be delighted to know that the creators of The Missing, Harry and Jack Williams, are the minds behind this one.

Rellik (killer spelled backwards) aims to flip the serial killer genre on its head. What makes a serial killer? Or the cop who is compelled to relentlessly track
