Uncork’d Entertainment Preps ‘Johnny Gruesome’ For The Short Trip To Your House

Gregory Lamberson’s Johnny Gruesome come out in novel form like 10 years ago. It’s actually one of my favorite works of this impressive writer / filmmaker. The journey for the film version of Johnny Grissom’s trip from life to death to life (kinda) again has taken a while to make a reality but the good news is – we’ve got a release date and bettter yet – a full length trailer.

Uncork’d Entertainment will be bringing the zombie goodness to the masses via VOD on Oct. 16th. If you’re holding out for physical media – the DVD will roll out on Jan. 1st.

If you’re not familiar with the tale of Johnny Gruesome – it goes something like this:

“High school students Eric Carter and Johnny Grissom are best friends. Johnny is a heavy metal rebel nicknamed “Johnny Gruesome” by his classmates. When Johnny is murdered while on a drunken joyride, his killer persuades Eric and Johnny’s girlfriend to help him make the murder look like an accidental death. Johnny returns from the grave as a murderous, wisecracking zombie hell bent on revenge.”

New key art surfaced as well – dig it!
