Live Evil Coming to Theatres This September!

Live Evil Poster (click for larger image)As proof that sometimes the little guy does indeed get a break, we got word this morning that Jay Woelfel’s indie film Live Evil has gotten itself theatrical distribution.

From Live Evil on MySpace: “Distribution Announcement: Live Evil will open in theaters on 300 screens starting September 18th. DVD in mid November. Video blog coming tonight that will explain everything.

In case you’re not familiar with the flick, which features genre faves Tim Thomerson, Mark Hengst, Ken Foree, Lee Perkins, Tiffany Shepis, and Elissa Dowling, here’s a rather lengthy synopsis posted by Woelfel himself:

A hunter dressed in black. This cowboy-hat-wearing samurai-sword-wielding Priest is on a quest for blood. Vampire blood. He’s out for revenge on a “clique” of four vampires who are traveling across the country in search of “pure blood.” The human blood stream has become polluted by drugs, alcohol, Aids, Diabetes, anti-depressants, cigarettes; anything that changes the blood even a small amount makes it undrinkable for vampires, who, like hi-performance automobiles, need “hi test” fuel (blood) in order to survive. This has started a sort of underground civil war between various groups of vampires, and vampires themselves have mutated due to the pollution of their life blood. Live Evil is what is written on playing cards left behind on the bodies of dead vampires that this mysterious Priest/Hunter leaves in his wake as he gets closer and closer to our main group of vampires. He’s out for revenge, and the real reason for this is not revealed until the very end. He’s as cold-blooded or more than the vampire he seeks, because he has to be.

The leader of the vampires is Benedict. The “oldest” of the group, he’s seen the rise and fall of the vampires and is out to protect his small family. He’s also in love with one of the two females in his group, Sydney. Sydney is a sexy but equally ravenous vampire who is becoming more and more out of control. Yael is the youngest of the group and the most enthusiastic and inexperienced; her recklessness could threaten the group’s existence. Also part of the group is the acerbic Baxter, an Irish former silent movie star, who became a vampire in order to stay young forever, only to have his career ruined when sound films came in. His bitterness and Yael’s young enthusiasm create more tension for Benedict to try to control. This clique is constantly trying to find pure bloods for food and also on the run from The Priest, who gets closer and closer to them with every mile as they travel to Los Angeles to find a Blood Dealer, Max, a man who “pushes” blood stolen from hospitals to vampire clients.

In a wild opening sequence car chase, the Priest’s car flips over and his right leg is injured so severely that he must hijack a ride from Roxy, a tough woman who doesn’t know if the Priest is just insane or if there really are vampires. As the two grudging companions get to know each other, The Priest learns that Roxy is a “pure blood” and realizes that he must do more than just seek revenge, he must not care for another human being for the first time in his life. Neither vampires nor the vampire hunting Priest take prisoners in this increasingly frenzied cat and mouse game. It’s a bloody trail of bodies, both human and vampires, that climaxes in an abandoned church in the barren desert.

Check out the trailer below, and be sure to hit up the MySpace link later tonight to see the video blog referenced.

Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date

Published

on

Earlier this year, we wrote about Synapse Films’ Suspiria 4K restoration and how it was available for pre-order. The weird catch was that there was no release date confirmed and that pre-orders would go out sometime in December 2017. Today that changes as we can confirm that the 3-disc special edition Blu-ray collection will come out December 19th, just in time for Christmas but a little late for Hanukkah. Any chance we can have one extra night this year?

Restored over three years, Synapse has been working tirelessly to create the ultimate version of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic supernatural horror film, which has since gone on to become one of the most recognized and lauded titles in the genre. This cut has been overseen and approved by Luciano Tovoli, the Director of Photography on the film.

Pre-orders are still available via Synapse Films’ website.

*Limited edition of only 6000 units produced
