AICN HORROR NEWS - IF IT BLEEDS…IT LEADS: BOUNTY KILLER Exclusive Clip! From the makers of HIDDEN IN THE WOODS comes THE GRAVITY OF THE PUGILIST! Be on the lookout for MK OUTLIER!
Greetings, all. Ambush Bug here. Here’s this week’s dose of horror news bits—bite size like you zombies like it!
Lock and Load This Exclisive Clip to BOUNTY KILLER!This week I lead off with a clip from a film I’m very curious about called BOUNTY KILLER. I’m all for fun post-apocaliptica and though it is a territory well tread in cinema, the right take or the right cast or the right original idea or aspect can make it all seem fresh as a daisy. BOUNTY KILLER is directed by Henry Saine who helmed the mixed bag that was THE LAST LOVECRAFT: RELIC OF CTHULHU (reviewed here). But what really interests me is the eclectic cast he’s assembled for this film; Matthew Marsden, Christian Pitre, Barak Hardley, Eve, Gary Busey, Beverly D'Angelo, Alexa Vega. That’s a pretty cool lineup. The synopsis is as follows; It’s been 20 years since the corporations took over the world’s governments. Their thirst for power and profits led to the corporate wars, a fierce global battle that laid waste to society as we know it. Born from the ash, the Council of Nine rose as a new law and order for this dark age. To avenge the corporations’ reckless destruction, the Council issues death warrants for all white collar criminals. Their hunter’s – the BOUNTY KILLER. From amateur savage to graceful assassin, the BOUNTY KILLER’S now compete for body count, fame and a fat stack of cash. They’re ending the plague of corporate greed by exterminating the self serving CEO and providing the survivors of the apocalypse with retribution. These are the new heroes. This is the age of the BOUNTY KILLER.
Sounds fun. Here’s the exclusive clip!
And the trailer!
BOUNTY KILLER is released tomorrow and hopefully will be reviewed right here on AICN HORROR!
Be on the lookout for New Sci Fi Flick MK OUTLIER!I usually don’t do many super early reviews of uncompleted films, but when I was asked to check out Christopher Jacobs upcoming apocalypse meets sci fi action horror mashup MK OUTLIER, I wasn’t prepared for how cool this modestly budgeted little gem was. Even from the unfinished footage, I could tell a lot of care was put into this Aussie production and I’m looking forward to checking out the final cut of it. So I’ll hold back on giving a full review of the film until it is closer to completion, but with the abundance of sci fi coming your way over the next few years, it’s going to be hard to discern the good from the bad. MK OUTLIER is definitely one to put on your radar as it blends genres in fun new and tense ways without forgetting to be entertaining and engaging too.
The film is finishing up with post around November. I’ll definitely keep you all posted on this one. Find out more about this film here and on Facebook here
Below is the teaser trailer.
Hard-Hitting Horror Trailer For THE GRAVITY OF THE PUGILIST!From the producers of HIDDEN IN THE WOODS (reviewed here and currently being remade by Michael Biehn’s production company) and director Jorge Mella comes LA GRAVEDAD DEL PUGIL (translated; THE GRAVITY OF THE PUGILIST). No word on the release date, but I do have a synopsis which made me immediately interested in checking this one out (I do want to point out that this synopsis seems to be very much SPOILER FILLED); In a small town in Chile, woman and young children have been mysteriously vanishing. Sometimes their mutilated bodies are found a long time later. An investigative reporter, Nancy Elgueta starts to investigate after being shown one of the bodies where it was found. It’s the body of a young student. Suspicion falls on a local boxer called Leo, who had recently seemed to go crazy during a fight, saying he could see demons through an opening in the floor of the ring. It was well known he had close relations with the student. After the fight, his trainer tells him he cannot fight again until he has overcome his demons. At the same time, the local police force, in the shape of a brave woman, starts to investigate the disappearances. She is very suspicious of the new local Mayor, Dupui, and a shadowy figure called Dr Werner. Dupui keeps tight control over the town through a gang called the Yellow Jackets. The gang all work for the town, but are hand-picked by Dupui and then inducted into a brotherhood through a long ritual, but really, they are under his control through the use of a drug administered by the Doctor, which he calls ‘Posession’. The policewoman confronts the two men, but is warned off, with them threatening her son if she keeps snooping. The mayor is also being investigated by the state authorities, who send in special agents to investigate. As the forces of good close in on the mayor and his evil gang, events start to spiral out of control and an ancient force of evil is released. No-one knows who to trust as the policewoman tries to bring the reign of evil to a close, and even her own life is at stake in a game of wits where only one side can win. In the end, the pure soul of the boxer, represented by that strongest symbol of the fighter – his gloves – wins the day.
So though a lot is explained there, I still want to see how it all works out for our boxer. Here’s the trailer. It probably would help if you knew Spanish, but there’s enough there for me to get that grungy grindhousey feel I know and love.
But beware, the presence of a partial nipple might deem this trailer NSFW!
