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.
