Trailer Park Tuesdays - Almost Human
Welcome to the Trailer Park.
Make sure you drive slow.
Dirty, shirtless children are playing...
This week's trailer is for a movie that looks to be right up my alley. It's indebted to the cinema of John Carpenter and David Cronenberg. It has an 80s slasher feel (the story takes place in the 80s, without being all in your face about it, so that's cool too). It has ridiculous amounts of blood, violence, and gore. I seriously cannot wait to see this one.
One cold winter's night, two small town best friends, Seth Hampton (Graham Skipper) and Mark Fisher (Josh Either, also the film's editor), are caught in a blue alien light and Mark mysteriously vanishes. Sometime later, Mark reappears. He is not the same. . .
Almost Human (2013) is the debut feature from writer/director/producer/camera operator/cinematographer Joe Begos and it made a splash at the Toronto International Film Fest (where it was picked up for distribution by IFC) and also impressed the folks down in Austin, TX at Fantastic Fest. The film will screen next at the Stiges Film Fest over in Spain (this weekend, I think).
No word on when Almost Human will receive a wider release here in the States. I'd hazard a guess and say early next year, but who knows, could be later. Either way, here's the trailer, full of bloody gore and mayhem.
Here's the movie poster, which is also indebted to Carpenter's The Thing and is also completely badass. Check it!
