Epic Pictures and DREAD have released the key art and brand new trailer for Tom Botchii's feature debut, Artik, which world premieres at Popcorn Frights Film Fest this week and releases in US theatres September 6th, and on VOD/Blu-ray on September 10th!
The ominously luminous art comes from celebrated sci-fi and fantasy artist Christopher Shy, who's credits include the iconic poster design for Panos Cosmatos' Mandy.
In the film, a comic book obsessed serial killer teaches his son how to get away with a series of brutal murders until the boy befriends a mysterious man who threatens to expose everything.
Artik’s trailer promises a demented tale will Saw levels of torture, with our killer even asking, "do you want to play a game?", and it's all made that much more disturbing with the inclusion of a child being a part of the violence.
Artik stars Chase Williamson (John Dies at the End, Beyond The Gates), Lauren Ashely Carter (Jug Face, Imitation Girl), Matt Mercer (Contracted), Gavin White (14 Cameras) and Jerry G Angelo (7 Faces of Jack the Ripper).
The film is produced by Angelo, Botchii, in addition to Kodi Saint Angelo and Erik Bernard.
