More French horror is on the way. Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, has announced that it has acquired North American distribution rights to Eden Log, according to Variety. The premise is that "a man ... wakes up in total darkness at the bottom of a cave, unaware of how he got there. While pursued by a scary creature, the man tries to climb back to the Earth's surface through a cemetery-like maze abandoned by a mysterious corporation called Eden Log." Sounds like Resident Evil meets The Descent, doesn't it? But the French-language teaser looks sweet -- if, like me, you enjoy dark chocolate brought to a boil. "Bon voyage!"
Directed by Franck Vestiel, Eden Log is currently in post-production. The film is scheduled for release in France at Christmas with North American release following sometime in 2008. I can't wait to hide my eyes again.
