Here at Dread Central we’ve been covering the UK independent horror movie Patrol Men ever since mid-2009. It’s been a long and arduous road for filmmakers Ben Simpson and David Campion so we knew that with the film’s overseas release happening this week, it was the perfect time to chat with the pair in honor of our month-long Indie Horror Month celebration.
It looks as though horror fans across the UK may be in for a treat on March 28th as co-directors David Campion and Ben Simpson's home-grown slice of fear, The Patrol Men, will be making its rounds on DVD with some rather badass looking packaging. Dig it! From the Press Release:
While we love covering horror movies of all shapes and sizes, the staff at Dread Central has always fostered a deep-rooted appreciation for the independent horror movement that has been alive and kicking for over 90 years now.
One film we've been following the progress of for a while now is the "zero budget" indie film Patrol Men, and today we've got a look at its new trailer and posters that were used at Cannes along with two new stills and an update from David Campion (co-director with Ben Simpson).
The guys who are putting together the "zero budget" indie film Patrol Men in the UK definitely seem to be doing things the right way. From the over 40(!) locations they've used for the flick to their fresh approach to the soundtrack (read more on that here), they are pouring their hearts and souls into the project. And today they've provided Dread Central with an exclusive first look at their brand new theatrical poster.
One project we've had our eyes on for a while now is the "zero budget" UK indie film Patrol Men. We got the teaser trailer back in May, but things have been quiet ever since. Well, that silence was broken today as David Campion (co-director with Ben Simpson) sent us the news that the full trailer has officially launched!
Several months ago we clued you all in to a new indie project called Patrol Men, which claimed to be the "best Z-grade horror film ever made." Now the filmmakers have provided us with a teaser trailer so you can judge its prospects for yourselves.
A very strange email showed up in my inbox today from three men named David, Ben, and Niall. It didn't say much other than providing a setting and scenario for an upcoming project called Patrol Men, which they claim will be the "best Z-grade horror film ever made."
