deadmanwalkin

I just received a press release about a new independent horror film titled SOUTHER GOTHIC which is a dark horror/thriller set in the South, and chronicles a man who must atone for a tragic mistake by saving a little girl from a band of ruthless, undead killers.

"Evoking such films as "28 Days Later" and "Blue Velvet." SOUTHERN GOTHIC is a dark action thriller with the hallmarks of great horror.  A supernatural battle between good and evil.  Thrilling twists and gripping suspense.  And a chance for redemption only to be found in the hearts of an innocent girl and her unexpected savior."

WOW.. 28 Days Later and Blue Velvet.. so I guess we'll have crazied, infected people running around with nitrous-oxide tanks, yelling for Pabst Blue Ribbon... if so.. THAT'LL BE GREAT!!  *takes a hit of nitrous-oxide*
