Ready for a look at a contemporary horror flick that channels 1980′s low budget creature feature fun? Shock is happy to bring you the trailer debut for The Demon’s Rook which Tribeca acquired out of the film festival circuit last year.
The film is going to be mad available on iTunes and VOD September 30th; this one is apropos for the Halloween season I think.
Genre newcomer James Sizemore directed the film. He co-penned the script with Akom Tidwell.
I recently caught his short film Goat Witch at the Fantasia International Film Festival and it maintains that Demon’s Rook vibe, so he’s definitely into that retro vibe that calls on copious amounts of practical FX and foam latex (no complaints here!).
In The Demon’s Rook: Chaos descends upon a quiet town when Roscoe, the pupil of a wizard monk from an ancient race of demons, unknowingly opens a portal that allows an unspeakable evil to travel freely into our world. When three grisly beasts cross into our dimension, the living are possessed and the dead rise to destroy everything in their path. Armed with demons’ magic, Roscoe is the only fighting chance to put an end to their eternal path of destruction.
