Rollins likes pints according to this pic from HE NEVER DIES!Filming has just begun on the new revenge genre film HE NEVER DIED starring the one and only Henry Rollins. The film is directed by Jason Krawczyk and executive produced by Rollins and follows Jack in his battle with cannibalism and mental sobriety. An exceptionally prolonged life has brought depression and detachment. Jack buys stolen blood from a hospital intern, plays bingo, sleeps fourteen hours a day, watches television six hours a day, and lives alone. This is his life - he has shelled himself away from social interactions. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility and self worth. As it turns out, there are very few reasons to live when you can’t die.
This pic doesn’t tell us much, but I do know the film also stars Boo Boo Stewart (X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST), Kate Greenhouse (THE DARK HOURS), and Jordan Todosey (DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION). More on this film as it develops!
This COYOTE is less wiley and more disturbing!!The film COYOTE has been building itself quite the notorious reputation recently. The director Trevor Juenger says a college screening of COYOTE was shut down in mid-film by an administrator citing "extreme violence," while another public screening in the director's hometown of St. Louis had to be cancelled when the theater owner refused to run the film due to "extreme content."
The film stars horror’s newest icon Bill Oberst Jr. as an insomniac writer whose sleep-deprived hallucinations distort reality as paranoia drives him to extreme violence.
One look at this clip, and you’ll see why this is not one you’ll want to click on at work…
COYOTE is currently touring fests. Find out more about it here!
