Cannes Sales Art and Trailer Explosion: Inkubus, Descendents, The Hike, and Sweatshop
With so much stuff coming out of Cannes, it's getting harder and harder to keep up. So in an attempt to keep our heads above water, we've rounded up a ton of new eye candy for you and slid it into this one neat place! On with the show!
First up - the sales art and trailer for Robert Englund in Inkubus. The film directed by Glenn Ciano also stars William Forsythe, Joey Fatone (yes, him) and Jonathan Silverman.
Detective Caretti (JOEY FATONE) and Officer Cole (JONATHAN SILVERMAN) head up a skeleton crew, working the final shift at a soon-to-be condemned police station. They're interviewing a suspect who, despite his blood-soaked clothes, claims he did not kill his girlfriend. He tells them that a mysterious stranger appeared from out of nowhere and killed her in front of him. The officers don't believe him...until a mysterious stranger, named Inkubus (ROBERT ENGLUND), appears from out of nowhere, holding his dead girlfriend's head.
Inkubus is restrained and begins to confess his litany of crimes. He uses his one phone call to contact the retired Detective Gil Diamante (WILLIAM FORSYTHE), who almost caught him thirteen years ago and nearly lost his mind in the process.
When the retired Detective Diamante arrives on the scene, the cops - unlucky enough to be present - are fated to participate in, and witness, the demon's crowning achievement of murder, gore, and mayhem.
Next up - some foreign zombie themed action in Descendents from director Jorge Olguin, which was previously known as Solos.
A mysterious contagion spreads, turning humans into zombies. A handful of children are born with an immunity to the disease. One of the immune, Camille, wanders the desolate wastelands, evading zombies and armed soldiers, who are equally indiscriminate in their destruction. Camille finds other immune and with them journeys in search of an escape.
From there we hike into the world of horror in Rupert Bryan's The Hike. Tamar Hassan (Kick-Ass), Barbara Nedeljakova (Hostel), Ben Loyd Holmes ("Torchwood"), Shauna Macdonald (The Descent), Zara Phythian, Daniel Caren, Jemma Bolt, Domonic Le Moignan, Stephanie Siadatan, Lisa Marie Long, Adam Young and Joe Nuttal all star.
Kate (Zara Phythian) is back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan after seeing her soldier boyfriend die in combat. She has reunited with her best friends back home, who whisk her away on a ‘healing’ camping trip to a picturesque and remote area of the British countryside.
The girls make their way into the woods in search of the perfect place to camp, forget their sorrows, and enjoy their time together. On their hike they come across a mysterious group of Eastern Europeans who seem to be living off the land. They quickly move on to avoid an awkward confrontation and continue to their destination.
When they reach Sunset Point, they meet a group of rock climbers and form a quick and flirtatious friendship. But when darkness falls, and one of their friends goes missing, the girls will be forced to rely on each other and the rock climbers to find their friend and get out of the woods in one piece.
And finally we cap things off with a good old fashioned slasher fest in the form of the sales art and trailer for Stacy Davidson's Sweatshop. The Houston-lensed film stars Ashley Kay, Peyton Wetzel, Julin, and Danielle Jones. The picture pits a group of unsuspecting ravers against an unstoppable monster wielding an over-sized foundry hammer.
