Make a Deal With The Devil in APE – Trailer Inside
That pesky little devil is at it again, offering deals but never quite giving the punter exactly what they wanted. He is a tough old cookie, but there are plenty of people lining up to get there problems fixed and director Joel Potrykus is unleashing one of them who just happens to be a pyromaniac in APE.
Courtesy of Undead Brainspasm we have the full synopsis and two teaser trailer’s which you can view below. I for one am pretty impressed by what I have just seen so I’ll be keeping my eyes on this one.
At this time a release date hasn’t been confirmed but a DVD is said to hit around October time with even a very limited theatrical release some time this year too.
Synopsis: “Trevor Newandyke is a struggling small-time comedian. Not only does he bomb on stage, but he bombs in everyday life. To him, it’s the little things that matter most. He’s fed up with the threats from the cable company, 7-11 raising the price of the Slurpee, and all the jerks who think they can push him around. All he wants is a break, and for someone to get him. Not everyone, just someone.
But instead of taking a breath and getting himself together or taking his anger to the stage, he turns to the loud din of his headphones and the crackling glow of fire to ease his mind. He’s not only a lousy comic, but a pyromaniac, as well. After a typical night disappointing the crowd he finds that one of his jokes begins to come to life. A fruit salesman posing as the Devil strikes a bargain with Trevor. A golden apple for a joke.
He treasures the apple, seeing it as a sign or a magical object. But after some troubling news he tells the audience that it’s likely just an apple and meaningless. He decides to just eat it. It’s good, too. Makes Trevor feel something. The next day he finally reaches his boiling point during the clamor of his neighbors fighting.
But instead of hiding behind a match or homemade flame thrower, he instead turns to the baseball bat. He not only hits hard against those in his way, but he finds his voice on stage as well. He tells it like it is. No fluff. From here, Trevor lets go. He’s mad as hell and he’s not going to take it anymore. Of course, deals with the Devil don’t ever turn out well.”
