Zero Budget Superhero The Amazing Bulk Skulks onto DVD in April
From the director of Aliens vs. Avatars and the producer of Metal Man comes the cheapest, zaniest, most astounding no-budget superhero mockbuster The Asylum never produced. Once you’ve feasted your eyes upon the trailer for The Amazing Bulk, then you will be able to die knowing you truly have seen everything.
Henry “Hank” Howard, an ambitious young scientist, struggles to develop a superhuman serum designed to improve muscle mass and prolong life expectancy. His boss, the grumpy General Darwin, will not allow Hank to marry his daughter, Hannah, until the experiment is a success. Against Darwin's wishes Hank proposes to Hannah anyway, but his life is shattered by a mugger who steals his engagement ring. Dejected, Hank injects himself with the experimental serum and is transformed into the Amazing Bulk.
The Bulk goes on a rampage through the city, destroying everything in his path. Hank is caught by a relentless detective, imprisoned by Darwin, and forced to battle the sadistic Dr. Kantlove, who threatens to blow up the moon with his arsenal of weapons.
If I may quote myself from the article I wrote about this film almost one year ago when the trailer for The Amazing Bulk first appeared online to the astonishment of all that viewed it:
With stock footage, green screen, and computer effects that make Xtranormal look like Pixar, director Lewis Schoenbrun (Dr. Chopper, Queen Cobra) has made what looks to be a mixture of live-action actors surrounded by the green screen aesthetics of a cheaply made TV show designed for preschoolers. For all its budgetary limitations, the visual look almost achieves a level of cartoonish artistry, like if Zack Snyder was left to fend for himself with only a laptop, a green screen, and a box of Crayolas.
Tempe Video will be bringing this giant, purple, butt cheek flashing, superhero flick starring Jordan Lawson, Shevaun Kastle, Terence Lording, Juliette Angeli, Randal Malone to DVD on April 17th. Extras will include a featurette, storyboards, deleted scenes, and trailers.
Now behold the Bulk in all his raging purple glory!
