Several entertainers, including Academy Award nominee Ignacio “Nacho” Vigalondo, Grammy Award winning producer and engineer Chris Vrenna, Jose Mojica Marins and Steven Severin, have all joined the Profane Exhibit team. Marins will be directing the segment ‘Viral,’ which Vrenna will score along with Severin, who will also be appearing as an actor. Meanwhile, film festival favorite Vigalondo will be directing the segment ‘Sins of the Father.’
Vrenna and Severin will be joined by such musicians as Rune Erikson, Maurizio Guarini, Sven Erik Fuzz-Krisatiansen and Eri Isaka Fuxx-Krisatiansen. Vrenna is best known for working with Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson, having produced and played drums on the latter group’s upcoming record. Severin is most well-known for fronting the band The Glove and maintaining his record label, RE Severin.
Marins is known for creating the legendary character Coffin Joe in 1963, when he starred in and directed the cult classic ‘At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul.’ The film, which received controversy and criticism in the director’s home country of Brazil, is considered to be the nation’s first horror movie.
Vigalondo was nominated for an Oscar for his short film ’7:35 de la Manana.’ He also helmed ‘Time Crimes,’ as well as the upcoming ‘Extraterrestrial,’ which is receiving buzz in the independent film community. The director also helmed the upcoming film adaption of Mark Millar’s video game ‘Supercrooks.’
Marins and Vigalondo will be joining directors Ryan Nicholson, Andrey Iskanoy, Michael Todd Schneider, Sergio Stivaletti, Marian Dora, Yoshihiro Nishimura, Richard Stanley and Uwe Boll, for The Profane Exhibit, an extreme international horror anthology film. The movie was created, written and produced by David Bond and Manda Manuel.
