John Landis is a name people in the horror and comedy community know all too well. With films like An American Werewolf in London and Coming to America on his resume, he has reached a broad spectrum of fan bases over the years. His new film – which he’s serving as executive producer on -may not resonate with as many people as before, but it’s a nice crossover of the two genres that this horror and comedy fan is more than looking forward to. The new film is called Some Guy Who Kills People and we have the official trailer right here for you at DTB.
At first glance you may say this looks like a low budget, straight to video, Anchor Bay release, and assume it’s probably not any good. Then look again and see that there is s pretty good cast assembled here and from the trailer below it looks like this may be on the way to cult status along the lines of Behind the Mask. Some Guy That Kills People stars Kevin Corrigan (The Departed, Superbad), Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, TV’s Spin City), Karen Black (House of 1000 Corpses), Leo Fitzpatrick (Kids, Serendipity), Ariel Gade (Aliens vs. Predator-Requiem, Dark Water) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead). It will be released on Anchor Bay Entertainment on DVD July 3rd 2012.
This movie made lots of noise in festivals since April of 2011, so I’m sure it won’t disappoint. You can check out the trailer below.
Ken Boyd (Corrigan) may seem like an average comic enthusiast, living with his mother and working to make ends meet as an underpaid, underappreciated ice cream parlor attendant. But Ken has a dirty little secret: he fantasizes about killing people. After being released from a stay in the loony bin, for severe mental trauma suffered when he was beaten and tortured by a gang of high school thugs, Ken’s repressed anger suddenly reaches a boiling point. He begins to hunt down his tormentors, one by one, and exacts his bloody revenge – all the while forming an unconventional bond with his estranged 11-year old daughter (Gade)
