Last Month's (July's) Exciting Film

I'm intending to do this every month...but I was late last month.

So, July's exciting film is none another than:

Starring cult-favourites like Ken Foree
(Dawn of the Dead, Devil's Rejects, Halloween 2007), Gunner Hansen (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), David Naughton (American Werewolf in London), Brian O'Halloran (Clerks, Clerks 2) and The Ladies of THE EVIL DEAD (I.E Ellen Sandweiss, Theresa Tilly, Betsy Baker) - this is a significant horror happening, without it actually being a horror film.

The official synopsis is:
Harry Penderecki, a once heralded horror auteur, finds himself on the outside looking in at Hollywood. He hasn't had a hit film in years, and most in the industry, including his close friends, think he's washed up. Harry is given one last chance to redeem himself with what could be his best or last picture. Brutal Massacre becomes just that, as the cast and crew find themselves battling one mishap after another as Harry struggles to keep his sanity against overwhelming resistance to finish the picture and find himself at the top once again."

So basically it's a mockumentary about the joys of independent horror filmmaking, featuring a host of horror/cult film stars and starlets, with an Anchor Bay seal of approval. I don't know about you, but I'm sold! Expect a review in the immediate future.
