One of the films from Fantastic Fest 2013 selected to be part of Alamo Drafthouse’s nationwide tourwas Big Bad Wolves, a new genre film from Israeli directing duo Aaron Keshales and Navot Papushado. The film is a dark horror comedy that somehow injects humor into a story about a child’s murder. Sounds grim, but the film won five awards from the Ophirs, which are Israel’s version of the Oscars. Now a stylish new poster for the film has debuted, complete with a quote from Quentin Tarantino who said, “Not only is this the best film in Busan, this is the best film of the year.” It wasn’t on his Top 10 from earlier this year though, but maybe he saw the film after that list was put together? Anyway, check out the first poster below!
Big Bad Wolves is written and directed by Aaron Keshales and Navot Papushado (Rabies). A serial killer who targets little girls is on the loose. Miki (Lior Ashkenazi) is a rule-breaking cop who thinks that a schoolteacher named Dror (Rotem Keinan) is the murderer. After failing to force Dror’s confession, Miki decides to extract a confession through any means necessary. However, a significant obstacle emerges on Miki’s path to justice: a man named Gidi (Tzahi Grad). The film played at Fantastic Fest 2013 and the Busan International Film Festival, but Magnet Releasing sends the film to limited theaters January 17th, 2014.
