Poster For Monster Slayer Director's The ShrineGoon
Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer was one of my favorite films to come out last year despite not making a large theaterical distribution deal. Director Jon Knautz proved that he had a TON of talent and was able to do a lot with very little. Dare I say the second coming of Sam Raimi?
Anyway he is gearing up his next film, The Shrine. Trevor Matthews (Jack Brooks himself) will be producing and co-starring this time around. Below is the new poster and synopsis that STYD was able to get their hands on.
After a young American backpacker goes missing in Europe, a group of journalists link his disappearance to a remote Polish village called Alvaina. Upon further investigation, the journalists discover that Alvaina has a history of bizarre cult activity revolving around human sacrifice. Hellbent on revealing the truth, they travel to the small village to uncover the story first hand. But after the discovery of an ancient stone statue hidden within the town, they quickly find themselves pursued by a mysterious and vengeful group of locals. Forced into the gruesome reality of true survival horror, the journalists soon realize that Alvaina hides a much darker secret than they could ever imagine.
