Lightning Entertainment has released the sales art for Kerry Prior’s The Revenant, and we must admit it feels amazingly good to see movement on this truly top shelf indie effort! Dig on the eye candy!
There’s no distro news on the flick yet, but as soon as Lightning makes the deal you’ll be right here in the loop.
The film tells the story of a soldier (David Anders, from TV’s “24” and “The Vampire Diaries”) who is killed in Iraq and then finds himself resurrected as a “revenant,” or one who has returned from the dead. He turns to his slacker best friend (Chris Wylde) to help him manage his newfound thirst for blood, and the duo quickly realize that this zombie-fied state is a perfect opportunity to become vigilante crime fighters. Their adventure quickly becomes more complicated and bloody than they expected, however.
The film has garnered incredible reviews and won numerous awards on the international festival circuit, including the Best Director and Audience Awards at Fantastic Fest and Zompire (the Undead Film Festival), and the Audience Award at CineVegas; and has played to packed houses at top festivals like Sitges, the Brussels International Film Fest, and the Fantasia Film Festival.
The Revenant‘s director Kerry Prior wrote the original screenplay and produced the film with Liam Finn, and Jacques Thelmaque.
