IFC Films Picks Up DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK.

I believe it was all of one whole post ago I wrote that I’m not a fan of publishing press releases you can read just about anywhere on the web. I’m hoping that you, dear reader, come here for our “Hot Horror Takes”, commentary and outspoken opinion.

That said, every now and a gain awesome news comes our way and we want to shout it from the mountaintops. Alas, as I live on flat ground and also don’t wish to be chastised and fined by the condo board for breaking the noise ordinance the written word will have to do. Because this is freaking awesome news indeed.

After kicking ass on the festival circuit and special screening event for over a year, The Soska Sisters’ debut feature DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK has landed a limited theatrical and Video On Demand release from IFC Films. Following their habit of picking up the best in edgy, alternative horror cinema (such as Simon Lumley’s Red White & Blue and new to DVD We Are What We Are) IFC will bring this slice of ultra violent grindhouse homage with a heart to the masses.

On an nonobjective side note, unless Jesus and Ghandi team up to start making films, this couldn’t have happened to two better people. Jen and Sylvia Soska have long been friends of our site, and have been gracious enough to allow us to screen Hooker as part of our own monthly program. They keep in constant contact with fans, updating them on projects and Twisted Twins news. They have lent their efforts and ever dwindling free time to contribute to and promote Women in Horror Recognition Month  along with spearheading a charity blood drive. This news is just another in a long line of steps on their path to success and possible global domination. 


From the press release (and I swear to fucking god I will finish these two half written reviews tomorrow):

After touring the film festival circuit and capturing the attention and adoration of critics and fans alike, the highly anticipated world release of the independent, cult classic in the making, grindhouse film DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK has finally arrived after making its UK and Australian release earlier in the year. DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK is being released through special midnight theatrical screenings in a limited release across the USA and Canada by IFC Midnight.

DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK, set in beautiful Vancouver, tells the story of four friends who set out on an everyday errand and end up in a fight for their lives when they discover the body of a dead hooker left in their trunk. Led by a sexy, impulsive Badass, her distant Geek twin sister, their bible thumping, Jesus loving Goody Two Shoes friend, and a chaotic, rock star Junkie pal, the group has to put aside their differences to dispose of the body before they’re next. Thrown into their own personal purgatory, they face off against persistent police, a sleazy motel manager, chainsaw wielding triads, and a brutal serial killer. All the while they are followed by a mysterious Cowboy Pimp who wants to claim the corpse for his own. Will they uncover the truth behind the body and be able to stand up to their demons? Buckle up and get ready for the ride of your life filled with gun fights, extreme violence, blood, guts, gore, and goats.
