The Superb Red Hill Is To Get A Pair Of Colour-Coded Follow Ups

Posted by September 26, 2010 Comment

Red Hill was the best film I saw at FrightFest this year and is easily one of the best pictures of 2010. Director Patrick Hughes is a really exciting talent, cinematically articulate and with a wonderful eye and great sense of story. Ryan Kwanten stars, and I mean stars. He’s tremendous, both magnetic and subtle.

Rather than me explain the film’s premise to you, I’ll show you the latest trailer.

The film has now screened at Fantastic Fest and Hughes has been giving interviews in support. Speaking to Film School Rejects, he unveiled his plans for a couple of future movies. Here’s how they reported on this:

Patrick Hughes has big plans for for his debut film’s future – well, sort of. What he’s really planning is a revenge trilogy, each one a modern western taking place in a different geographical location. The first film, Red Hill takes place in Red Hill, Australia. The currently planned follow-ups are tentatively titled Black Valley, about a Mexican border-town, and White Mountain, which would take place in the Rocky Mountains (or thereabouts) during winter.

Why no direct quote from Hughes? Anyway, we’ve got the basics there and I’m intrigued. And those lyrical names are in step with the tone of Red Hill  – the movie not just the title.

There’s a mysterious big cat that plays an important part in Red Hill. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it reappear in the other two films… It would at least be nice to find out if I’m wrong or not before too long.
