Okay horror fans, this one is for you! Thanks to Twitch, the trailer for Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre has arrived, and it's about as odd and creepy as you can get for a horror/thriller set on the open sea. First things first, yes, this is in English, even though it's a Icelandic production and directed by a Icelandic filmmaker. Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre is "an epic tale about a group of whale watchers, whose ship breaks down and they get picked up by a whale fisher vessel. The Fishbillies on the vessel have just gone bust, and everything goes out of control." It's actually looks pretty damn cool, so check it out.

Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre is directed by Icelandic filmmaker Júlíus Kemp, of Blossi/810551 and Wallpaper: An Erotic Love Story previously. The screenplay was written by Sjón Sigurdsson, of Regína and Anna and the Moods previously. The film stars all Icelandic actors, including the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre's Leatherface, Gunnar Hansen, who plays Captain Pétur. This will hit theaters in Iceland courtesy of Sam Film in September of 2009, though it doesn't have a US distributor just yet. We can expect to hear more on this in the next few months, as I expect it to show up in the Cannes film market. Stay tuned!
