Case 39 clip reveals reason for no distribution
A clip online for the film Case 39 perhaps reveals why there's not been a release of the film for so long, and why we're waiting until now to finally get to see it. Even then those in America still don't have a release date.
The film, written by Ray Wright and directed by Christian Alvart, has always confused me as to why it hasn't received a proper release, and I think this clip clearly shows why the mainstream US studios would have a problem with the film.
A child in this much distress and the idea of the parents about it kill her in this manner is perhaps rather shocking, and in a way I'm wondering why they would even release this clip in particular, it is a bit upsetting for some, probably for most. Can you think of some of the repurcussions of showing this scene?
I imagine this is perhaps one of the strongest moments of Case 39, and that the rest does delve into more traditional horror, but then I haven't seen it to know, no one has, and the film has been on the go for a hell of a long time.
Meanwhile Christian Alvart, who wrote and directed the excellent Antikörper (Antibodies) has moved on to science fiction/horror in Pandorum, drama with Liebe, and if IMDB is to be believed, The Zero and a remake of his own Antibodies film, something I can't remember if he said he would never do or would do if he was offered money.
I do remember him saying at the screening that his film will always be there so he doesn't mind what Hollywood do with a remake.
