This Month's Exciting Film

I'm on time this month.

This month's excitingly awesome looking film is WIZARD OF GORE!

This remake of the Herschell Gordon Lewis "classic" is directed by Jeremy Kasten, director of the impressively surreal horror film The Attic Expeditions and stars Kip Pardue (The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things), Bijou Phillips (Hostel: Part 2, Venom), Crispin Glover (Friday The 13th: Final Chapter, Wild at Heart) and horror legend Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator trilogy, House on Haunted Hill 1&2, The Frighteners and MANY more). The UK will be getting this DVD on August 25th.

IMDB's "anonymous" synopsis:

"Montag the Magnificent (Glover) is a master illusionist who performs at underground venues, selecting female volunteers from his rave-like audiences. To their hysteria, it appears he's dismembered their bodies, but his sleigh of hand has fooled them. However, female bodies show up dead from the same wounds performed on stage. Investigators are baffled, and the chase to find the killer begins."

Creepy eh? Frankly I'll watch anything with Jeffrey Combs in, but this does sound like good fun in its own right. Jeffrey Combs' fanspot The Combs Corner offers some nice exclusive info from the director about the DVD's features and so on, but I won't reproduce so it, so you'll have to look at their page (they're the hard working ones afterall).
