SXSW Preview: Poster Debut for Vigalondo, Wood’s Open Windows
Another SXSW entry making my “most anticipated” list is Open Windows, a thriller directed by Nacho Vigalondo and starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey. Vigalondo is definitely a horror “friendly.” His film, Timecrimes, hit the festival scene in 2008. With that film, we got a refreshing, smart, weird thriller.
