When the Satan's Sinners are on the road no one is safe. That’s the underlying premise of f/x whiz-turned-director Jeremy Garner’s debut film, All Hell Breaks Loose, which will be making its DVD debut on Mar. 22 by way of Wild Eye Releasing.
This mix-genre thriller (with humor) — part ‘70s biker flick, part horror tale — begins innocently enough with the lovely Bobby Sue (Sarah Kobel Marquette — Crowbar) exchanging vows with her one true love, Nick (Nick Forrest). They are not quite finished with their first sips of celebratory champagne when members of Satan’s Sinners — who were just out for a ride — descend on them, gun down the hapless groom and Bobby Sue becomes their latest trophy.
It turns out that our bad boys from Satan’s Sinners are devil worshipers and the virginal bride, despite their desires to have their way with her, is to be the central character in a sacrificial ritual.
But wait, a mysterious man in white, complete with Stetson, resurrects the bloody Nick and sends him out as something of avenging angel to save Bobby Sue and dispatch these evil bikers back to hell. Yup, help is on the way!
There is just one problem. Nick is awful as a revenge hero and the man in white has to resurrect him again and again as “nine-lives Nick” ineptly tries to complete his mission.
All Hell Breaks Loose is a fun throwback, an homage if you will, to classic biker flicks — those terrific drive-in guilty pleasures of yesteryear. Add in the horror elements, blend in some comic bit featuring our bumbling hero and top it off with some nice f/x tricks (speaking well of Garner’s technical background) and this indie production delivers all the promises … a good time!
