‘BURROWERS’ TRAILER HITS THE WEB!

Posted on 31st March 2009 by aaron in News - Tags: , , , ,

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:

‘HIGH MOON’ RISING

Came across this story over at the Creepy Cool guys ‘n gals over at SHOCK TILL YOU DROP:

Production Weekly’s back with another quick, random update on a script currently garnering some form of attention in Hollywood (similar to their update on War – a script we’ve received since this report).

This time it’s High Moon. PW writes, “In Eddie Nickerson’s horror Western ‘High Moon’ a reckless outlaw is a small town’s only hope for survival from a vicious band of werewolves.” Those are the only details they’ve provided.

Our question: Is this an adaptation of Zuda Comics’ similarly-titled web series? (Zuda’s an imprint of DC Comics.) Created by David Gallaher and Steve Ellis, the story follows a bounty hunter who strolls into the town of Blest and finds himself neck-deep in lycanthropy and witchcraft.

We’ll do a bit of digging to find out more…

Bitchin’! I’ll watch that.  There seems to be a lot of potential for suckitude, but there also seems like a lot of potential for ass kicking.
