Worth Watching - Aug 30: J.T. Petty's The Burrowers Trailer
The first trailer for The Burrowers has just arrived online courtesy of Bloody Disgusting. The film is somewhat of a western horror film about settlers back in the 1800s that encounter a creatures like Tremors that come up from the ground and attack them. It stars Clancy Brown, Doug Hutchison, Sean Patrick Thomas, Laura Leighton, and an assortment of other unknown actors. We've written about it before and were excited for it then, but this makes it look pretty damn good. I wish we would've seen more of the creatures, but it's so dark and so flashy that it's hard to tell. I'll be catching this up at the Toronto Film Festival next month, so stay tuned for my reaction. Until then, be sure to check out this trailer!
Watch the trailer for The Burrowers:
The Burrowers is both written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker J.T. Petty, of horror flicks Soft for Digging and S&Man previously. The film is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this fall and is being distributed theatrically by Lionsgate. The Burrowers will most likely hit theaters sometime in early 2009.

Actually looks ok! The ending shot was pretty cool too and the story looks well drawn-out. However, seeing that Lionsgate is distributing it, hopefully Joe Drake doesn't f**k this one up like MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN. Lionsgate actually is worse than Fox in my opinion.

Hopefully if it has the same kind of theme like it did wid the movie called No Country for Old Men. Then it can do great at the box office. It jus added a horror side to this genre.

This movie will bomb. This is a cheesy flick made purely to make a little scratch on DVD. I'm surprised they're even releasing it in the theaters. Probably just to hype it up for the DVD release. I'm surprised people even bother pretending to be excited about dreck like this.
