In his review of Septic Man here on Dread Central, Brad McHargue touted it as being “a divisive yet damned intriguing film,” which personally has me itching to check out the latest from Jesse Thomas Cook.
If you feel the same way, you won’t have to wait long, as a DVD, VOD and limited theatrical release has just been announced. Read on!
From the Press Release
Starz Digital Media is set to release the award-winning horror film Septic Man this summer. The film will be available On Demand and for digital download August 12 and will have a limited theatrical run on August 15. The DVD will be available August 19.
From the creators of Monster Brawl, Exit Humanity, and 2014â€™s Hellmouth and Ejecta, Septic Man dazzled audiences at the 2013 Fantastic Fest where its star Jason David Brown (Exit Humanity) won â€œBest Actorâ€ in a horror feature. The film also garnered a prize at Toronto After Dark 2013.
Septic Man follows Jack, a sewage worker who is determined to uncover the cause of the town’s water contamination crisis. During his investigation, he becomes trapped underground in a septic tank and undergoes a hideous transformation. He must team up with a docile Giant and confront a murdering madman in order to escape. Hailed as a â€œstunningâ€ (Little Red Umbrella), â€œfunnyâ€ (TwitchFilm), and â€œvisceral story that will leave you shaken and desperate for a showerâ€ (Rue Morgue Magazine), Septic Man is an odyssey into the darkest depths of gross-out horror.
Septic Man was directed by Jesse Thomas Cook (Monster Brawl) and written by Tony Burgess (PontyPool). It co-stars Molly Dunsworth (Bunker 6, Hobo with a Shotgun) and Robert Maillet (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones).
