Twixt movie scene

Am I Blue? Val Kilmer (l.) and Ben Chaplin star in Twixt.

Val Kilmer (MacGruber), Elle Fanning (Somewhere) and Bruce Dern (The Driver) star in the 2011 horror film Twixt, written and directed by the legendary Francis Ford Coppola (Tetro).

The movie follows Hall Baltimore (Kilmer), a writer appearing in a small town on a book tour who uncovers a disturbing murder that could be source material for his next novel. But as Hall investigates the killing, he finds himself confronted by chilling nightmares, including the ghost of a young girl (Fanning). As he uncovers more horrifying revelations, Hall discovers that the story has more to do with his own life than he could ever have imagined.

Independently produced by Coppola, Twixt was shot in 2010 and has been sitting on 20th Century Fox’s shelf since 2011. Though it had a high-profile rollout to a handful of prestigious festivals in 2012 (including Toronto Film Festival, San Francisco International Film Festival and San Diego Comic-Con), the film received generally negative notices, garnering a 4.8/10 at Rotten Tomatoes based on 11 published reviews.

The Blu-ray and DVD includes a 40-minute making-of featurette made by Gia Coppola, the filmmaker’s granddaughter.

We haven’t seen Twixt yet and, sadly, we haven’t heard many good things about it. But it’s the latest movie by the guy who made the Godfather films, Apocalypse Now and The Conversation…and that’s good enough for us.
