Mayhem 2019: THE GANGSTER, THE COP, THE DEVIL Joins Fest With SHE NEVER DIED And THE POOL
The Mayhem Film Festival is coming up in October and once again residents of Nottingham, England, brace themselves for four days of the cream of the crop of genre cinema from around the world.
The festival has already announced that Extraordinary, Sword of God and Something Else will play at the festival. Today they announced three more, another tease of what is to come this year.
Lee Won-tae's Korean horror thriller The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil will thrill audiences. A dose of Canadian content arrives with Audrey Cummings' She Never Died, the sequel to He Never Died. And rounding of this new trio is an action-horror from Thailand called The Pool that sounds so silly it might just work. A couple gets trapped in an empty swimming pool with a hungry crocodile? Okay then, let's have a go at that one too.
The complete lineup will be announced in September. Stay tuned.
Mayhem Film Festival announces THE GANGSTER, THE COP, THE DEVIL, plus SHE NEVER DIED and THE POOLWith its 15th edition now less than two months away, Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce the next three titles from its 2019 programme.Mayhem will host the UK Premiere of all-action, South Korean serial killer thriller The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil. A sardonic cop reluctantly teams up with a wounded crime boss (the remarkable Ma Dong-seok of Train to Busan) to track and stop a serial killer, but their criminal rivals stand – violently - in their way. See it way ahead of the upcoming Stallone-produced US remake.Also in this year’s line-up is She Never Died, a female-fronted companion piece to 2015 cult film He Never Died. Olunike Adeliyi stars as an immortal cannibal who seeks out the darkest souls humanity has to offer in the hunt for her next meal, when she saves a woman from dying a grisly death on a snuff web channel and proceeds to hunt down the culprits.Rounding off this second wave of announcements is another UK Premiere, Thai action-horror The Pool, where a couple is trapped in an empty swimming pool with only a hungry crocodile for company. Packed with over-the-top twists and some genuinely shocking surprises, survival horror has never been so much ludicrous, logic-testing fun. Mayhem’s full 2019 line-uthe-p will be announced in early September. Discounted Early Bird Passes are still available to purchase at £70 each.
