We had a chance to check out Tent Hagga’s pulpy, white trash noir 68 KILL this past spring at the Boston Underground film Festival and goddamn if it isn’t the most banana pants thing we’ve seen all year (review). Just about every frame of film oozes sex, carnage, violence, bloodshed and debauchery, while the lovely Anna Lynn McCord relishes the opportunity to chew up scenery in giant, gobsmacking mouthfuls before spitting the pulpy remains back in the audience’s face.
While the film looks to make it’s final festival performance at Fantasia on July 29th, the world at large can feast their eyes on it not long afterwards thanks to the fine folks at IFC Midnight. On August 4th, 68 Kill comes out on On Demand services along with a handful of theatrical markets. Trust us, you aren;t going to want to miss this film. Don’t believe me? Read the synopsis and lay your eyes on the trailer below. If that doesn’t have you convinced, then son, you’re reading the wrong damn site.
Synopsis: Trailer-dwelling, sewage-pumping Chip (Matthew Gray Gubler) may not lead the most glamorous life, but he’s got one thing going for him: he’s head over heels infatuated with his girlfriend Liza (AnnaLynne McCord). He’s more than willing to overlook her wild streak—the fact that she’s hooking up with their landlord; her rather extreme mood swings —so when she proposes a plot to steal $68,000, he goes along with the plan. But when what was supposed to be a simple heist turns into an off-the-rails, blood-spattered crime spree, Chip learns the hard way just how deranged the love of his life really is. The new film from Troma alum Trent Haaga blends wicked comedy with pure pulp thrills for a no-holds-barred blast of insanity.
