This is the trailer for Waz. Well, WΔZ actually because it’s about algebra, but some people aren’t into the whole “special character thing.”
Bodies are turning up in the dark city streets – some horribly mutilated, others with an equation wAz carved into their flesh [Ed Note: wAzuuuuup!]. As Detective Argo (Stellan Skarsgard) and his new partner (Melissa George) unearth the meaning of the equation, they realise that each victim is being offered a gruesome choice – kill your loved ones or be killed.
The choice doesn’t seem that gruesome, really. I mean, I’m as selfless as the next guy, but if it’s between me and someone else I think you know what the answer is. I figure they wouldn’t want to live without me around anyway, right? I know I wouldn’t.
Anyway, I’m curious as to how horror movies get financed. “Okay, pitch me your script. …Hmm, okay that sounds exactly like every crappy horror movie I’ve ever seen. Perfect. Let’s greenlight it. But remember, conformity is the main thing. You’re sure about this serial killer thing? Sure we don’t wanna go zombies or vampires or ghosts or something? …Okay good, let’s make this happen.”
