With the anthology horror entry Sanitarium from filmmakers Bryan Ortiz, Bryan Ramirez and Kerry Valderrama in place for its DVD debut from Image Entertainment on New Year’s Eve, you might think that Image might take a few weeks off.
When you consider the company’s very busy horror-themed Q4’13 release schedule — Shiver, Oct. 8; The Colony, Oct. 15; Homecoming, Oct. 22; All Hallow’s Eve, Oct. 29; I Am Zozo, Nov. 19 — it would be quite understandable if you figured that they’d take some time off. Nothing could be further from the truth!
News arrived this week that director Evan Tramel’s documentary-turned-death struggle, Black Water Vampire, has been tabbed for Jan. 21 DVD debut and filmmaker Walter Boholst’s ultra-scary Voodoo Possession will be heading to DVD one week early on Jan. 14. Hell of a start to 2014!
We can’t be sure if Haiti has any insane asylums — somehow, it just seems so inappropriate for a country that looks more and more like hell on earth with each passing year (between earthquakes, crime, violence and grinding poverty) — but if they do have one, we could easily imagine cult actor Danny Trejo as the hospital administrator.
That’s the premise of Voodoo Possession as Aiden (Ryan Caltagirone) goes in search of his missing brother. Can you imagine the horror of coming face-to-face with Danny Trejo as the head of the nut house … the horror of it all!!!
In Black Water Vampire a group of would-be “investigators” decide to track down the infamous killer behind the Black Water murders — a serial killer. But as the film’s title implies filmmaker Evan Tramel serves up more than just a run-of-the-mill serial killer for this quartet to document.
Raymond Banks, as played by Bill Oberst, Jr., who starred as Abraham Lincoln in Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, is the subject of their investigation. Perhaps a trip to Disneyland would be a better choice than filming this sinister creep.
