This past spring, I had the pleasure of being on the set of Christian Jude Grillo’s latest thriller Apocalypse Kiss. For those not familiar, he was responsible for last year’s controversial Deer Crossing and the quirky indie Booley. Apocalypse Kiss stars a ton of genre favorites including DC Douglas (best known as the voice of Albert Wesker to all you Resident Evil fans), Carmela Hayslett (Roxsy Tyler’s Carnival of Horrors), Tom Atkins (Halloween III, Drive Angry 3D), Tom Detrik (Booley), Lloyd Kaufman (president of Troma), and Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, The X Files). My role was that of a sector guard (in the trailer, I’m the tall drink of water in a gas mask wielding a CGI taser). This past week after much anticipation, Grillo released the official trailer. Check it out below.
Synopsis: In this futuristic science fiction thriller, government security agent Jerry Hipple has been unsuccessfully tracking the city’s most infamous criminal The Red Harvest Killer. When two nomadic lovers, Katia and Gladys enter the city the death count rises and are being credited as Red Harvest killings. Obsessive compulsive Adrian, the actual Red Harvest Killer becomes furious that the sexy serial killing duo are grabbing media attention under his alias. Not only does Adrian attempt to reclaim his rightful reputation but he also decides to cleverly aid his detective counterpart through the case. All the while, killers and victims alike are unaware the world is about to reach an abrupt catastrophic ending.
Apocalypse Kiss is set for an early 2014 release.
