Over the last week, I've gotten a LOT of emails containing details about upcoming horror flicks that you Cellmates should know about. Honestly, this week has been hectic as hell, so they've been piling up, but tonight I'm cleaning out the inbox and bringing you all the info on these movies. It’s a parade of previews! It’s a cavalcade of coming attractions! It’s a tantalizing train of teasers! It’s a festival of future fright films! Ok, I’ll stop. Anyway, first up we've got IFC Midnight’s upcoming release Asylum Blackout.
Here's the synopsis: George, Max and Ricky are in a rock band. Between small gigs and rehearsals, they hope for their big breakthrough. In the meanwhile, someone has to pay the bills! So they work in the kitchen of a high security asylum. Good pay, minimum risk - they have no physical contact with the inmates. One night, just before dinner time, a big storm shuts down the security system, the doors open and the lunatics break loose. Help is on its way and should soon arrive. They just have to wait for it…and survive until then.
So let me get this straight, on a dark and stormy night 3 dudes get stuck in a nuthouse with the crazies running wild? I’m in. I love movies that take place in sanitariums. The trailer looks cool too. Here, see for yourself…
See? Told ya. If you wanna see it like I do, Asylum Blackout is going to be in select theaters and available nationwide on IFC Midnight Cable VOD and Digital Outlets (SundanceNOW, iTunes, Amazon Streaming, XBOX Zune, Playstation Unlimited) on May 4, 2012.
