SGL Entertainment, with domestic sales and distribution expertise provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has selected Mar. 14 as the DVD debut date for writer/director Christian Grillo’s neo-noir sci-fi thriller, Apocalypse Kiss.
If Blade Runner had a sequel this would be it. The futuristic city of Deckard (Harrison Ford) has continued on in Apocalypse Kiss … only it has gotten seedier and more dangerous (if that is possible). His “successor” in law enforcement is Jerry Hipple (Tom Detrik — Angel’s Blade), who spends his days trying to track down The Red Harvest Killer, but the why of it seems to be pointless.
Hipple, it would seem, is simply going through the motions as it is clear from what we can see of this futuristic city that it is on the verge of devolving into a Felliniesque state of the absurd. Rumor is the world is ending. Could be.
Entering this realm are Katia (Carmela Hayslett) and Gladys (Tammy Jean), lesbian lovers who have gone on a killing spree of their own, which the media is attributing to The Red Harvest Killer. In this dysfunctional near-future world that sort of reporting would go unnoticed — what’s another a body, give or take.
But when Adrian (D.C. Douglas), the real serial killer, hears of these copycats poaching on his turf he does the only sensible thing … he turns to Hipple for help!!! He reasons that he is an artist and each one of his victims is a work of art and having amateurs getting credit for his work simply cannot stand!
Bonus features include a behind-the-scenes featurette and fake television commercials from the future.
