Yes, this is a direct-to-DVD movie from Lionsgate. Yes, it’s directed by Albert Pyun, helmer of the Nemesis series, Captain America and Alien from L.A., but Left for Dead sounds like it could be something worth checking out. Seriously.
Left for Dead is the tale of a tougher than nail gunsliging woman on the trail of Blake, a man wanted for rape. Along with her are a group of all-female cultists, one of whom is in love with Blake and is carrying his child. They take refuge in a town whose sole resident is Mobius, a twisted preacher who sold his soul to the devil in order for a chance to take revenge on those who killed him. Now he just cuts down anyone who manages to make their way into his town.
Yeah, sounds kind of fucked up, no? The reviews I’ve read have said it’s a mixture of spaghetti western and survival horror, which only adds to its fucked-upness. DVD Active got word that the DVD is due out on March 4th and will feature commentary by Pyun. Click here to pre-order Left for Dead and see if the film really is as strange as it sounds.
