Director Albert Pyun dropped us a line today with a first look at the DVD artwork for his upcoming horror and revenge thriller Bulletface, which has a release date of January 26, 2010.
The story is set along the Mexico/California Border, principally in Imperial Beach, CA. It concerns a female DEA agent, Dara Maren, who, in protecting her petty criminal younger brother, gets herself arrested and imprisoned in a nightmarish penal colony outside Tijuana. You can guess how bad it gets in there — prison officials even harvest organs from the inmates. While she’s in prison, Dara’s brother is murdered by a drug lord who’s creating a new DNA-altering drug made from human spinal fluid tapped from the living.
Hundreds of dead bodies are turning up along the Border, and the drug addicts become something not quite human. The drug is so addicting that even law enforcement and government officials are on the stuff. A rogue FBI agent bribes the prison officials to let Dara out to avenge her brother’s murder as well as bring down the drug lord in ways the Feds can’t. When Dara comes out of prison, she is not the same person who went in.
The catch? She only gets a 60-hour get-out-of-jail card and must return to the prison to serve out her 20-year sentence, or the FBI agent must take her place.
Bulletface was written by Randall Fontana and stars Victoria Maurette as Dara. Steven Bauer co-stars with Scott Paulin, Morgan Weisser, Jenny Dare Paulin, and Eddie Velez.
