There's a new shock-trailer doing the rounds on the Internet, for a low-budget, but extremely interesting new black comedy, Indie, horror/road-movie called DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK (2009, Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska)!
The film, set and created in Vancouver, Canada has already been banned in its home country due to the strict censorship laws there, which has resulted in a lot of wonderful publicity for the film! No details on release dates yet, but it is showing at various festivals around the globe. The film follows four friends, including the Soska sisters themselves who wrote, directed and star in it, when they discover the titular dead hooker in the boot/trunk of their car. With a couple of friends in tow, they are forced to make an errand run, to dispose of the body, which also happens to have copious amounts of drugs with it!
The Soska Sisters made this film for their Graduation Class, and with its gritty footage, low-budget background, and fusion of horror and black comedy, I think this will become a very, very big cult flick! At 92 minutes, it's nice and short, and the 2.35:1 Cinemascope ratio suggests that the Sisters have really designed their film to be seen on a big theatre screen!
The film gets a UK Region 2 DVD release on 23rd May 2011! Pre-order it at Amazon.co.uk for just £8. Enjoy the trailer!
