Big horror directors like Joe Dante, Xavier Gens and Timo Vuorensola have collaborated on a new horror anthology movie names Fear Paris. Unlike most other horror anthologies, Fear Paris short movies/stories are all connected to each other. Fear Paris will go into production this summer/fall and casting has already started. I like how the opening sequence the colored lights set a nice tone. Next i like how the mimes are taking out the other guys with make believe weapons that actually turn into cool weapons. The feel and tone of the the movie looks very stylized. I get the feel of movies like 300 and Sin City in the way the scenes are shot and the special effects that were added.
