Worth Watching - Jan 26: Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer Trailer

I've got to say, this looks awesomely badass. Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer is the name and it debuted at Slamdance, the even more-indie version of Sundance. Unfortunately I didn't have time to catch a screening of it yet, but I've heard from numerous people that I trust that it kicks some serious ass. All you need to know before watching this trailer is the title - Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer. I have a good feeling this is going to be a huge cult hit, but I can't say just yet. Either way, you need to watch this trailer, don't even ask any more questions.
Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer was also the first purchase from Slamdance this year. Anchor Bay Entertainment has picked up the film for a mid-six figures deal. They're also promising a theatrical commitment, meaning you'll actually get to see this bad boy in theaters. If you want to read more, check out the official website for the movie - brookstreetpictures.com.
Watch the trailer for Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer:
Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer is directed by indie filmmaker Jon Knautz, of Teen Massacre, and written by both Knautz and first-time writer John Ainslie. The film was very recently picked up by Anchor Bay Entertainment and will likely arrive in theaters sometime in 2008. The poster for the film is featured below.

First, this looks awesome. Second, word on the street is that Anchor Bay has picked this up and will pull a Hatchet by releasing it theatrically to a handful of theaters across the U.S. Very nice.

I work at the hotel that produced this film and saw a lot of the filming in action and we hosted all the actors and crew for a few months. A really great, fun loving bunch. I've been following this movie for a while waiting to see it couldn't believe i founda write-up on here!
