Geekery: The Void

the void poster

A classic occult horror movie to give you a break from super heroes and Jedi…

The Void is a true indie movie – it was partly funded through crowd sourcing. The movie is helmed by Steven Kostanski and Jeremy Gillespie. Both have a solid background in makeup and practical SFX through work on movies like Crimson Peak and Robocop, and NBC’s Hannibal. The story definitely has a John Carpenter feel to it, with some other classics thrown in…

In the middle of a routine patrol, officer Daniel Carter happens upon a blood-soaked figure limping down a deserted stretch of road. He rushes the young man to a nearby rural hospital staffed by a skeleton crew, only to discover that patients and personnel are transforming into something inhuman. As the horror intensifies, Carter leads the other survivors on a hellish voyage into the subterranean depths of the hospital in a desperate bid to end the nightmare before it’s too late.

This is the concept trailer they put out last year…

It’s hard to find a new horror movie I like these days, but I’m looking forward to seeing this. They put out a new trailer for the official release recently. It’s polished and the monsters look pretty damn scary. Take a look…

It’s not reinventing the wheel, but that’s ok. It definitely looks like it’ll satisfy those that like frenetic pacing, some creepy occult themes, and some kick ass (and very gory) monster effects. Cast includes Ellen Wong, Kathleen Munroe, Aaron Poole, Kenneth Welsh, and Daniel Fathers.

The Void hits select theaters on March 31st in the UK, and April 7th in the US.

    Wow, before clicking on the link I thought this had something to do with Ynnead. That symbol looks very similar…

    This looks like some nice, old school horror; like a cross between Hellraiser and The Thing.

    I’ll take that dish with a good slice of Lovecraft….

    Hopefully Señor Del Torro will pick up his “Mountains of madness” project again some day!
    ….or any other cthullu-ish stuff!
    Would be awesome to see something like that on big screen, backed by good money but with an indie vibe to it!
