I’m completely stoked about THE BURROWERS.  I love the idea of combining my two favourite genres (Horror and Western), and I’m looking forward to what J.T. Petty does with the idea.  For those who don’t know about THE BURROWERS, here’s a little synopsis:

It is 1879 in the Dakota Territories. A handful of brave pioneers maintain isolated settlements in the badlands beyond civilization. Irish Immigrant Fergus Coffey is near to winning the hand of his beloved Maryanne when she is suddenly taken from him, her family brutally abducted in a nighttime attack on their homestead. Suspicion falls immediately on hostile Indians. Experienced Indian fighters Will Parcher and John Clay form a posse and set out to rescue the kidnapped settlers, taking along a naïve teenager hoping to prove himself a man, an ex-slave looking to find his place in the world and their ranch-hand, Coffey. But as men vanish in the night and horrific evidence accumulates with the dead and dying, the group discovers that their prey is far more terrifying than anything human, and their prospects are far more terrible than death.

And here is the trailer ya’ll were waitin’ for:

Ok, I’m not entirely sure how this one slipped by me, but the new fright flick from JT PETTY, THE BURROWERS, just had a trailer hit the intarwebz.  According to the boys over at Bloody Disgusting, the plot is as follows:

After a family is brutally murdered in their home, a group of ranchers and infantry men embark on a crusade to find the killers. When a mysterious killer attacks their ranks, they discover that carnivorous creatures are hiding beneath the surface of the earth waiting to feed on their flesh.

I know, I know, kind of vague, so check below for the trailer and some wicked cool concept art.

For some reason, I can’t get TREMORS 4 out of my head…  Click on the Concept Art below for some cool stills over at Bloody Disgusting.
