A few months back director Mike Mendez shared this gore-soaked image from his upcoming horror Don’t Kill It, which stars ‘80s action veteran Dolph Lundgren. Now we can share with you the poster art, featuring the man himself. And he still looks badass.
As well as the Friday the 31st segment in last year’s Tales of Halloween, Mendez is responsible for giving the world The Gravedancers and Big Ass Spider!, as well as straight-to-video masterpiece (at least, according to this viewer) The Convent, a prequel to which he is now working on.
In Don’t Kill It, “An ancient evil is unleashed in a small Alaskan town leaving a trail of death and destruction as it passes from host to host. The only hope of survival lies with a grizzled demon hunter (Lundgren) who has faced this terror before. Together with a reluctant FBI agent he has to figure out how to destroy a demon with the ability to possess its killer.”
Starring alongside Lundgren are horror regular Kristina Klebe (who appeared in Neil Marshall’s Tales of Halloween segment), Miles Doleac (American Horror Story) and Tony Bentley (The Last Exorcism), as well as Children of the Corn’s Malachai, Courtney Gains.
Demons, Dolph Lundgren and a room full of severed limbs? Well, I’m sold, despite that slightly dodgy title. Shame the poster cannot confirm a release date, but we can expect to see Don’t Kill It sometime later this year.
