It’s been nearly a year since we last told you about the indie flick Gravedigger so we’re more than overdue for an update! Get set to dig on the newest bit of artwork and the very first trailer, and look for more on this one soon.
From the Press Release:
Bury your guilt! A vigilante serial killer is stalking, killing, and burying those he has judged guilty; and anyone in this corrupt beach town could be next!
Filmed in New Jersey, the disturbing, twisted shock-fest Gravedigger is a sinister collaboration among the minds of award-winning actor Keith Collins (Stuck in the Middle, The Meat Puppet), Doug Bollinger (Waltzing Anna), Brandon Ruckdashel (Co-ed Confidential), and the eerie ink of NY Emmy Award-winning writer Joseph Pepitone and Billy Pepitone (Stuck in the Middle). It also includes original music from guitar rock genius Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Guns N’ Roses). This intense horror/thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat and the brink of insanity throughout a terrifying journey of paranoia.
With a unique cast of a “who’s who” from TV personalities to sports players, reality stars, rock stars, and many more, Gravedigger recently took home two coveted awards at the 2013 Downbeach Film Festival Atlantic City Cinefest for best Thriller Feature Film, NJ and Best Actor.
Directed by Bollinger; produced by Collins and executive producers John Stoerback, Michael Levine, and Jeff Quinlan (Bare Knuckles); co-executive produced by Brandon Ruckdashel; and written by the Pepitone siblings, Gravedigger’s well-rounded cast includes many special appearances and stars Collins, Ruckdashel, Thal, Jim McKeown, Angela Sharp, Brian McRae (center fielder for the Kansas City Royals, Chicago Cubs, New York Mets, Colorado Rockies, and Toronto Blue Jays), Billy Sample (outfielder for the Texas Rangers, New York Yankees, and Atlanta Braves), Annette Dziamba (“The Apprentice”), Gregg Valentino (TLC’s “The Man Whose Arms Exploded”), Gervase Peterson (“Survivor, Season One”), Emilio Masella (Oxygen’s “Love Games 2”), Gary Garver (“The Howard Stern Show”), John Stoerback (The Next Vigilante), April Hunter (“WCW”, ”TNA”), Theresa Galeani (Cross the Line, I Am Legend), Anastasia Smith (“NY Majesty Lingerie Football League”), Katelyn Pearce, Jim Leyritz (former New York Yankee), Mark Pinkhasovich (NBC’s “The Biggest Loser”), Joe Sernio (“All My Children”), Cindy Fox (“The Naked Cowgirl”), and Adam (“Speed Bag Scissorhands”) Salomon.
Gravedigger tells the story of Steve Borden (Collins), who is a brilliant young criminal defense attorney. As junior partner in a local high-end law firm, he makes his living defending the indefensible. When a case gone horribly wrong haunts him, Borden’s conscience begins to send him into a guilt-ridden spiral. Police Chief George Orkin is the town’s top cop. With more bodies turning up buried, District Attorney Mike Ruble (Ruckdashel) suspects Orkin’s ties to crime boss Charles Muzzatti (Stoerback) may be the answer to the case.
Now, Orkin must deal with his own eroding sense of integrity to keep both sides of the law off his back. As paranoia rises and Borden, Orkin, Ruble, and Muzzatti try to pin the murders on each other, could another, more sinister force be hunting them? Codes, morals, and misguided views of justice collide when the law, the mob, and the Gravedigger face off in a bloody battle that will darken the survivor’s souls forever. But will burying the guilty bury the Gravedigger’s own guilt?
