As it is with many other genres, horror action comedy films have great potential. I personally loved Shaun of the Dead. But others, like Fido weren’t quite as awesome. I’ve no predictions as to where The Revenant stands on the leaderboard, but we’ll find out soon enough! It hits theaters this weekend, on August 24. And then the truth comes out along with all those guts and shit.
I would suppose one can’t go wrong with vampire superhero hitmen, but who knows? I used to think that nobody could screw up vampires and… well. Yeah.
Check out the red-band trailer and see what you think. Will you go out and watch this over the weekend? Or at all? Let us know!
Hit the jump for the synopsis.
This breakout horror comedy centers around a fallen soldier who somehow finds he has joined the ranks of the living dead. Bart Gregory (Anders) has just recently been laid to rest – so why is he still up and walking around? The only person Bart can turn to for answers is his best friend Joey (Wylde), and before long the two pals have surmised that blood is life. In order to survive, Bart requires a steady supply of it.
Convinced that no one will miss the drug dealers and killers who have transformed LA into a swirling cesspool of crime and vice, the two friends decide to do law enforcement a favor by cleaning up the streets while collecting the precious blood needed to keep poor Bart from withering away into dust!
