The Demolisher Begins Pre-Production; See the Teaser Poster and Concept ArtWord of a “hyper-violent” new film from Latefox Pictures landed in our inbox this week, and with pre-production for The Demolisher kicking off in Toronto, we have the first details, some concept art, and a teaser poster to share.

From the Press Release:
Latefox Pictures will be slamming into production with The Demolisher, scheduled to begin shooting in late spring 2014.

Directed by Gabriel Carrer (In the House of Flies), The Demolisher chronicles the story of a man named Bruce (Ry Barrett; The Drownsman), an ordinary repairman tormented by a crippling sense of responsibility for his disabled wife, Samantha (Tianna Nori; Clean Break), a former policewoman and survivor of a gang-related assault. Bruce’s increasing hyper-sensitivity to the injustice suffered by his wife steers him down a dark path of vigilantism. With his rapidly disintegrating mental health, paranoia, and overwhelming sense of condemnation, Bruce channels his inner rage, punishing a young woman, Marie (Jessica Vano; The Unabomber Manifesto), and finding refuge in a world of intense violence.

The Demolisher is both a character study and a psychological examination of trauma, resulting in an unapologetic portrayal of what can happen when a fragile mind is pushed too far. “The film is complex and character-driven, dealing with an outpouring of raw emotion,” said director Carrer, also one of the film’s producers. “It delicately juggles our sympathetic nature and reactions to chance encounters with the dangerous and addicted intoxication of violence. The film’s narrative pertains to the film industry, or any industry for that matter, and the level of abuse that can be endured,” he concludes.

Award-winning cinematographer Martin Buzora (Neverlost) will capture the film’s fresh hyper-visual aesthetic. Along with Carrer, The Demolisher is produced by Barrett, AK Lamm, Duane Frey, Christian Burgess, Martin Buzora, Nathan Hawkins, and Andrew Wood.

For further information, visit the official The Demolisher Facebook page, which will be regularly updated with concept artwork and sneak previews from the upcoming soundtrack, produced worldwide by talented and upcoming electronic music producers and remixers.

Gate II picks up again with Terry, the teenage sorcerer who summons beings from the other side whose powers can be used to grant any wish. Unfortunately, before the Gate closes again, a “minion” – a tiny disciple of Satan himself – manages to slip through to our dimension. When the creature is kidnapped – all hell breaks loose.
