Director Gary Jones is going to premiere his film, Bunyan, on November 17 at the Shockfest Film Festival in Hollywood. I have never really seen a movie take the tale of Paul Bunyan and make a horror movie out of it so this should be interesting. Check out the synopsis and poster below from DC.
BUNYAN is a dark, contemporary take on the tall tale of lumberjack Paul Bunyan. Kids at a first-offenders’ boot camp discover that the legend of Paul Bunyan is real, but is much more horrifying than they could have imagined. They incur the wrath of the 15-foot monstrous giant, who was banished from town 100 years ago and thought dead.
The movie stars genre vet Joe Estevez, Dan Haggerty (TV’s “Grizzly Adams”), Tom Downey (SyFy’s WAR OF THE WORLDS), and Tim Lovelace (MOSQUITO). Amber Connor, Jesse Kove, Kristina Kopf, Clifton Williams, Victoria Ramos, Jill Evyn, and former WWF wrestler Chris Hahn round out the cast. This is the first major role for Kove, son of veteran actor Martin Kove (THE KARATE KID 1-3, RAMBO).
