Paladin has debuted the official red band trailer and clips for The Revenant, the upcoming horror comedy that hits select theaters and VoD starting this Friday. When Bart mysteriously rises from the grave, he and his slacker best friend become vigilante crime fighters with hilariously mixed results as their adventures become more complicated and bloody than expected. Written and directed by D. Kerry Prior, the film stars David Anders (the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries”) and Chris Wylde (THE TEN). Here’s the official synopsis:
This breakout horror comedy centers around a fallen soldier who somehow finds he has joined the ranks of the living dead. Bart Gregory (Anders) has just recently been laid to rest – so why is he still up and walking around? The only person Bart can turn to for answers is his best friend Joey (Wylde), and before long the two pals have surmised that blood is life. In order to survive, Bart requires a steady supply of it. Convinced that no one will miss the drug dealers and killers who have transformed LA into a swirling cesspool of crime and vice, the two friends decide to do law enforcement a favor by cleaning up the streets while collecting the precious blood needed to keep poor Bart from withering away into dust!The Revenant will hit limited theaters in the U.S. on August 24th, 2012.
