Anchor Bay Gets Brutal with Ken Foree and Gunnar Hanson
Mon, 14 Apr 2008 07:19:59
Anchor Bay Entertainment has acquired both the theatrical and DVD rights to Brutal Massacre: A Comedy, a mock-u-mentary about the making of horror films, which is due in theaters in New York and Los Angeles this Spring.
The mock doc cast list reads like a veritable "Who's Who" of the horror genre, starring An American Werewolf In London's David Naughton along with Gunnar Hansen, who portrayed the nefarious Leatherface in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Ken Foree, of Dawn Of The Dead fame. Naughton portrays a director who is tailed by a documentary crew on the set of a horror film. Will there be lots of blood, guts, and gore? Or will it be just a bunch of red-tinted corn syrup? You'll have to tune in to find out.
The DVD release will feature a documentary about the mock-u-mentary, as well. Talk about metaphysical!
