So after Halloween, you just figured the horror flicks would die off. Well that's true for Hollywood. Nothing is really coming out in the last 2 month of the year but what you'll see on DVD shelves makes the end of 2009 very exciting.
Also coming out November 17th is Jake Kennedy's Penance which according to Fangoria:
"A beautifully brutal film, PENANCE delivers more cringe inducing terror than even the most hardcore horror fan will be able to endure. Prepare to atone for your cinematic sins of the flesh, because you won't be able to turn away from the sumptuous savagery assaulting your senses on the screen" --Scott Licina, FANGORIA
Wow check out that hype. Hmm, looks like torture-core is still not dead yet. I may be a little skeptical about this flick because its "from the producers of Automaton Transfusion", a flick I did not like (full review here).
But the all horror star cast is infreakintriguing. Marieh Delfino, Michael Rooker, Tony Todd, James Duval and others.
Here be the plot:
With unrelenting suspense and terror, Penance is the tale of a young, demure single mother, Amelia (Marieh Delfino), who hits upon hard times and decides to take her future into her own hands by taking up the one profession that can promise fast cash for a sexy girl like her - becoming a stripper.
Everything is going well until Suzy her stripper friend is beaten up on a job and recruits Amelia to take her place in a high-class strip job that night. Reluctantly Amelia takes the job, only to find that the job isn’t everything that it seems.
Driven to a strange location by a dark and mysterious man (Tony Todd) and confronted by a grizzled hit man (Michael Rooker), Amelia’s world is turned upside down as a case of mistaken identity leads her to be taken captive and forced to confront her sins – the sins of her mind, body and soul.
Her captor (the mind bending Graham McTavish), is intent on one thing and one thing only – to purify Amelia and the other women in his incarceration. It’s time for them to pay their Penance!
