Coming Distractions: Here’s a gory trailer for Astron-6’s horror film The Void
The team behind Canadian filmmaking collective Astron-6 is best known for making slightly tongue-in-cheek genre throwbacks like Manborg, but Steven Kostanski and Jeremy Gillespie’s The Void is one of the more serious films to come out of the Astron-6 family. Set in a rural hospital where some pretty crazy shit is doing down, the film seems to be going for a sort of John Carpenter’s The Thing-style cosmic horror vibe, right down to the grotesque creatures and brutal violence. This trailer is more about setting the tone than explaining the plot, but it certainly features more than its share of spooky imagery. Plus, it has a super awesome logo (if that counts for anything).
The Void will be in theaters on March 31 and on DVD/digital on April 24.
