Holy crap! I’d completely forgotten about writer/director D. Kerry Prior’s horror/comedy “The Revenant”. For some reason, I thought its arrival on home video had already come and gone. Fortunately for fans who have been waiting ever-so-patiently for the flick to arrive, Prior’s 2009 endeavor is heading to select theaters this August. For those of us who don’t live near participating theaters, the film will also arrive on VOD. In other words, everybody wins. Nice.
Check out this handy synopsis, courtesy of IMDb:
The night after his funeral, Bart, a soldier killed in Iraq gets up out of his grave and seeks out his best friend Joey. At dawn Bart’s body falls to the floor, only to reawaken the following dusk. He and his buddy decide that he is a revenant: an articulate zombie that needs to drink blood to arrest the decomposition of his body.
“The Revenant”, which stars David Anders, Chris Wylde, and Mark Elias, arrives on VOD and in theaters on August 24, 2012. You can find a trailer for the flick below.
