First Look at Mike Mendez's Latest Project - Ov3rk!ll





Ever since Real Killers and The Convent debuted way back when, we knew one director we should be keeping an eye on was Mike Mendez. He struck back again a few years later with what's still one of the best films ever to hit the After Dark Horrorfest, The Gravedancers, and since then the madman himself has been cooking up something insane. Welcome to your first taste of what's to come in Ov3rk!ll!

Below you'll find the sales trailer for his next project, which he hopes to shoot later this year. As you'll see, it's home to just about everything we love about the genre ... famous killers, lots of gore, chainsaws, and Ray fuckin' Wise, who immediately ups the ante of whatever he's involved with.

Again, this is only a sales trailer and not a glimpse at the final product. Either way, though, we think you'll agree the premise rocks ... and knowing Mendez, the outcome will be non-stop mayhem from pillar to post!

Dig it!

I had a typo in the original story that had Convent appear as covenant. My bad.

Whew. I thought I was losing it. I read the story and SWEAR I read Covenant. Then I came back and reread later and it simply read Convent. I was going to get my eyes checked!! LOL

I liked The Convent and I LOVED The Gravedancers. It's about time Mendez got off his ass and made another film. Hopefully the financing for this will come together fast.

The guy makes horror films for horror fans.

As for the trailer: I see fun being squeezed out of some very generic concepts. The dark sense of humour pervading the piece makes it work.

P.S. If Mendez wanted to team with his Gravedancers writer again that would be wicked cool too.

Sorry UC. Apparently typos are unacceptable. You must now drop to your knees and ready yourself for the ritual "SEPPUKU"!

LMFAO. When did Franco become Biff and Creepy McFly? Either way, cool trailer. I'll see it.
