One of my all-time favorite horror films is Pontypool from director Bruce McDonald. We haven’t heard much from him over the years which makes the following announcement all the more exciting.
His new film is set to hit – and we’ve got a trailer and all the info you need.
Titled Dreamland – it has one hell of a storyline – check this out:
“On the orders of his boss, the low-level gangster Hercules (Rollins), hitman Johnny (McHattie) must cut off the pinkie finger of celebrated jazz trumpeter The Maestro (McHattie, again) just before an important, high-profile gig. Seems simple enough, but the gig is a wedding at the fortified palace of crime queen The Countess (Lewis) and Johnny isn’t quite feeling it. Hercules is moving up from standard gangster stuff to human trafficking and the reason for the pinky request is more of a slight than anything else. Like all movie hitmen, Johnny is thinking of getting out of the game and this job has convinced him it’s time to retire. Throw in The Countess’ vampire brother (Tómas Lemarquis), his child bride and the wedding from hell, you’ll think you’ve imagined it all, but no, it’s just a visit to Dreamland.”
As the synopsis reveals – this one has one hell of a cast. Juliette Lewis, Henry Rollins, and the always amazing Stephen McHattie.
The trailer is just as weird as the synopsis.
Dreamland hits VOD on June 5th.
