In the world of horror films, there are three big trends right now: 3D, low budgets and terrifying evil Satan babies. So what happens when you put all three of these trends together into one movie?
"Static" happens, that's what.
Get ready for the world's first low-budget 3D horror movie about evil children, as The Wrap is reporting that "Heroes" star Milo Ventimiglia and "The L Word" siren Sarah Shahi will be starring in "Static," the debut effort from music video director Todd Levin.
3D, of course, has itself been the evil baby of the movie universe ever since"Avatar" earned eleventy brazillion dollars at the box office a year and a half ago. But while some films have used the technology to boost their earnings, just as many have fallen flat due to poor transfers and pointless effects.
Most of those, though, were big budget behemoths, while "Static" aims to be something totally new: a dirt cheap 3D film. How cheap? Well, according to The Wrap, "Static" is going to have a budget under $1 million dollars, which is less than James Cameron spent on blue paint.
As usual, though, we expect the success or failure of the film will have less to do with its 3D effects and more to do with the story, which The Wrap describes as being about a couple about to divorce whose "world changes when a young visitor arrives, bringing supernatural implications to the household."
We're not sure they'll be able to pull it off, but we know one thing: we're sure looking forward to watching them try.
