It’s only been what – 2 weeks since Eli Roth’s remake of ‘Death Wish’ hit theaters? While Bruce Willis starred this time around – the classic original starred the one and only Charles Bronson. ‘Death Wish’ invented its own sub-genre when it came out and it propelled Bronson to superstar status. Roth’s redo – not so much but what it did do was bring the work of Mr. Bronson back to the limelight. Today I have a trailer for a new vigilante film titled ‘Death Kiss’ and it stars Robert Kovacs who bears an eerie resemblance to the late Mr. Charles Bronson. Check out this trailer – and let your jaw drop.
Here’s all the info from the press release:
“Millman Productions and Mosquito Entertainment have just released the first teaser trailer and artwork for DEATH KISS, a new action-vigilante feature written and directed by Rene Perez (PLAYING WITH DOLLS: HAVOC) and produced by Jeff Miller (CLOWNTOWN, THE RUSSIAN BRIDE).
The movie will start making the rounds to sales agents and distributors this month. Filmed recently in Northern California, the film stars Robert Kovacs (who bears an uncanny resemblance to Charles Bronson), “Baldwin brother” Daniel (JOHN CARPENTER’S VAMPIRES, HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET), Richard Tyson (KINDERGARTEN COP, TWO MOON JUNCTION), Eva Hamilton (horror fest fave RUIN ME), and Stormi Maya. DEATH KISS concerns a vigilante with a mysterious past who goes to a crime-infested city and takes the law into his own hands.
“Rene made a really cool and stylistic action-revenge film,” says Miller. “We’re excited to show the movie soon to sales agents and distributors.” Gary Jones (AXE GIANT: THE WRATH OF PAUL BUNYAN, Robert Kurtzman’s THE RAGE) executive produced with Miller. Zach Carter was Supervising Producer.
Sabrina Morgan was Associate Producer. Reese Austyn was Line Producer. Miller and Perez previously worked together on THE BURNING DEAD (aka VOLCANO ZOMBIES).”
