The question is, do serial killers really want fame? Sure, the consensus on TV crime dramas is that they want recognition and they want to be caught, but do they really want fame?
We’ll soon get some type of answer from the recently acquired Apocalypse Kiss. Acort International has made the acquisition and has plans for world-wide distribution, which will include a North American DVD on Midnight Releasing and a VOD run. Plans also include a showing at the 2013 American Film Market (November 6-13, Santa Monica, California).
Apocalypse Kiss, the self-described “neo sci-fi exploitation” film, looks like a B-movie opera straight out of the ’90s: a city’s seedy underbelly awash in neon lights and painted with a film noir appeal; a pastel painted hooker; and bad hair and worse suits. Yes, there’s a nostalgic element to what’s seen in the trailer, but anyone can see that this will be B-movie paradise in the same vein as the glorious Manborg.
Apocalypse Kiss was written and directed by Christian Jude Grillo (Deer Crossing) and stars D.C. Douglas, Tom Detrik, Carmela Hayslett, Tammy Jean, Lloyd Kaufman, Tom Atkins, and Michael Berryman.
Acort has made the film irresistible viewing, citing Grillo’s style that includes scenes of left-field characters indulging in perverse subculture scenarios. And for the truly nerdy viewers, Apocalypse Kiss features retro-style model making techniques with the latest CGI FX, giving the film cult-ish flavor that is unique from today’s Hollywood films.
Apocalypse Kiss is expected for release on 15 June 2014.
