Enter the Nightmarish Vision of THE VOID With Pair Of Trailers

Are you prepared to gaze deep into The Void?

When directors Steven Kostanski and Jeremy Gillespie boldly declared that theirs was a vision worse than hell in their original pitch material they were, to a certain degree, throwing down the gauntlet to themselves. Have they delivered? Now's your chance to find out with a pair of wildly NSFW trailers for the film having recently arrived to support the upcoming UK and US releases.

When police officer Carter (Aaron Poole) discovers a blood-soaked man limping down a deserted road, he rushes him to a local hospital with a barebones, night shift staff. As cloaked, cult-like figures surround the building, the patients and staff inside start to turn ravenously insane. Trying to protect the survivors, Carter leads them into the depths of the hospital where they discover a gateway to immense evil.

The press on this one has been slinging around comparisons to Fulci and Carpenter, which is music to the ears of classic horror fans so strap in and get your first tastes below.

[Full disclosure: I am a credited executive producer on this one so, yep, I'm biased as hell.]

Screw your bias Todd, this looks like loads of fun. STOKED!

Todd BrownFebruary 21, 2017 3:50 PM

Thanks! Very much appreciated! Hope it delivers for you!

"There's something calling them all here". Could it perhaps be the great Cthulhu?
P.s The guy looking like Aaron Paul is actually Aaron Poole. That's almost Lovecraftian in itself

as M.A. just stated --- this DOES look bamf"ing Awesome..
...i'm SURE it's BOUND to be LOADS different --- but as i'm watching these trailers ~ I find myself drawing mental comparisons to The Lure, Detour, The Duelist, Open Grave, Dredd, as well as The Survivalist in terms of delivering crippling (not to mention Beautiful) Hay-Makers to the viewer...

Todd BrownFebruary 21, 2017 7:51 PM

The Aaron's do have a definite resemblance, yes.

my thirst for both eldritch and bodily horrors cannot wait to be satiated in late March

Unflinching_EyeFebruary 21, 2017 9:43 PM

Excellent. Looks like my money went to good use. Hope there's a blu release soon!

..so - you might wonder why on earth i'm "pinging" you about an edit --- but I just wish to be fair and forthright in case (from my edit...) you wish to recant your Up-Vote. Namely ~ I added in DREDD into that list..
*I KNEW i'd miss one.. ...or two.......

John WFebruary 21, 2017 10:13 PM

Must. See. This.

Parker000February 22, 2017 9:50 AM

Oh, well, i stand by my up-vote. I haven't seen all the movies on the list - although i might give them a shot now. I'ts an unusual list, but those i have seen have in common some crippling, gawping sequences, and The Void seems to have a sheer amount of those.

cjohnstonFebruary 22, 2017 5:19 PM

(no hurry here - 2 be sure..); but I'm curious..... ...which OF Those have you seen from that admittedly eclectic and eccentric list ?
~ ~ ~
p.s. --- here are a few more honorable action/thriller honorable mentions... containing "teeth", that you might like..
Enemy - Snowpericer - Blood Father - Borgman - How I Live Now - Dead Man Down - Automata - Renegade (Blueberry) - Largo Winch - Largo Winch II (Burma Conspiracy) - Headhunters - A Lonely Place To Die ...
~ ~
also. ..here r a few (much) more dramatic titles that contain ample kick and scrap as well for your consideration; If, and when you are inclined...
Captain Fantastic - Arrival - Mr. Nobody - Broken Circle Breakdown - Zoom - A Thousand Times GoodNight - Cloud Atlas - .......more 2 come - but gotta go at the moment...

Ooooo. Now I have to work very hard to keep my hopes from getting too far up! This looks amazing, but I've been burned by Lovecraft-inspired movies too many times in the past.

Interesting that the second trailer is described as an "Ellen Wong horror movie." Is it a vehicle for her, or is the American trailer just cut that way because Americans won't go see it unless it stars a Strong Female Character(tm)? That's especially noteworthy since featuring very few women is one of the fundaments of Lovecraft's writing.

Todd BrownFebruary 26, 2017 3:16 PM

Ellen's definitely a support character. Aaron Poole is very much the lead. Kathleen Munroe is the strongest of the female characters.

Great to hear! Thanks!
