Epic Pictures’ Dread Central Presents line is going to EXTREMITY with its fall theatrical/video release. We’ve got the exclusive first look at the poster and venues where it’ll play.
EXTREMITY, directed by Anthony DiBlasi (the Clive Barker pic DREAD), will receive limited theatrical playdates in September, followed by VOD and collector’s edition Blu-Ray release October 2. David Bond scripted (based on concepts by Scott Swan) and produced EXTREMITY with Corinne Ferguson; Dana Christina, Chad Rook, Ashley Smith, J. LaRose (the INSIDIOUS and SAW franchises), Ami Tomite (MEATBALL MACHINE KODOKU) and cult gore filmmaker Yoshihiro Nishimura (TOKYO GORE POLICE, HELLDRIVER) star. The latter also created the makeup effects, and Simon Sayce (HELLRAISER, NIGHTBREED) crafted the frightening masks worn by the film’s villains. The synopsis: “Allison [Christina] is an emotionally troubled young woman in her 20s, who believes that confronting her trauma might be a means of exorcising her demons. She signs up for a trip to Perdition, in which the only certainty is the promised experience of absolute, unadulterated terror. But the most purely frightening thing on display will prove to be Alison’s own twisted psyche…”
The poster below is by Johnny Tabor, who also did the one-sheets for Dread Central Presents’ IMITATION GIRL, DIRECTOR’S CUT and VIDAR THE VAMPIRE and Epic’s THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT. Confirmed theaters and dates as of now are:
- Monday, September 17: TLC Chinese 6, Los Angeles, CA
- Friday, September 21: Alamo Drafthouse, Richardson, TX
- Friday, September 28: Central Cinema, Knoxville, TN
- Friday, October 5: Film Bar, Phoenix, AZ
