Where In The Hell Is Scott Adkins’ Re-Kill?

Re-Kill (2011) Movie Image

Something dawned on me the other day. I was watching Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning when I thought to myself, “Whatever happened to that Scott Adkins’ zombie flick ‘Re-Kill?’” Fearing I had simply missed its release, I jumped on Amazon to secure myself a copy. As it turns out, the damned thing hasn’t been released yet. Go figure.

So where in the hell is director Valeri Milev’s seemingly action-packed zombie movie? News about the flick has pretty much dried up on the internet, which is never a good sign. A quick search doesn’t turn up anything promising; outside of a December 2012 release date in the UK by Lionsgate, there’s not a lot of info currently making the rounds.

Here’s a synopsis in case you’ve forgotten all about “Re-Kill:”

It’s been 5 years since the outbreak that wiped out 85% of the world’s population, but the war between Re-Animates (Re-Ans) and Humans wages on. Most of the major cities are still uninhabitable. Within the few surviving cities, the Re-Ans have been segregated into “zones” and are policed by the R-Division of the QUASI S.W.A.T. Unit who hunt to re-kill the Re-Ans in the hope of quelling a second outbreak. “R-Division, Frontline” is America’s #1 TV show in this Post-Apocalyptic world. Weekly, the show follows different R-Division units on the battlefield as they work to keep America Safe and Re-An free. Jimmy, the videographer for the Outbreak Network, thought this week’s episode would be like every other. He was wrong. Through the lens of his eyes and camera, we see raw, revealed and uncut, that which could be mankind’s last day. The footage you are about to see is graphic and disturbing and may not be suitable for children. Viewer discretion is highly advised.

In addition to Scott Adkins, the flick also features Roger Cross, Daniella Alonso, Jesse Garcia, and Bruce Payne. I’m sure they too are wondering why “Re-Kill” hasn’t been released.

What’s the deal, Lionsgate? What’s going on, After Dark? Why aren’t people enjoying “Re-Kill” on DVD, Blu-ray, or digital download? Why isn’t this thing on VOD? I’m sure there are a lot of Scott Adkins fans who would gladly eat this stuff up. I’m one of them. Give us “Re-Kill,” already!

You can find the old-ish trailer below. As soon as an updated release date lands in my lap, I’ll be sure to spread the good word. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed that it arrives at some point this year. 2013 needs more Scott Adkins.

    Coincidentally, I thought the exact same thing this past weekend. How weird. Last I heard it was so good Lionsgate was thinking of releasing on its own. Then, nadda.

    I’ve been wondering the same dang thing myself for a while now. I’ve had it saved in my upcoming releases folder for ages it seems. Every time I check on it..nada.

    It’s nice to know I’m not the only one. I thought maybe I had missed it, but apparently that’s not the case. I’m still anxious to see it.

    Thats really coincidental because I thought of this about a week ago.

    Yeah I was looking forward to watching Adkins kick undead ass! Hurry it up!!

    151 people have rated it on IMDB so some people must have seen it (perhaps people in the film industry). I note that someone asked when the film was going to be released on the After Dark page on Facebook. The response given was 2013. Another After Dark film, ‘Dark Circles’, is being released in April while ‘Asylum’ is also slated for release this year.

    I, too, have been waiting for this movie. I pretty much snap up any flick Adkins is in these days.

    I follow most found footage movies and I can tell you the BUY NOW images they have added at the bottom are fairly recent. Of course, they don’t go anywhere. I wonder what the hold up is? http://www.afterdarkoriginals.co.uk/movie/re-kill.htm

    been waiting on this coming out for a long time but makes sense in holding the release off due to scotts popularity taking off and will prob release it when they think they can get the highest return on it,just my opinion tho.
