Sony Pictures announced last week that a date has finally been set for Mike Mendez’s Don’t Kill It and to celebrate, here are a bunch of new stills, plus the finalised one-sheet. The film, which stars action icon Dolph Lundgren, will be released in limited US cinemas and on Digital VOD on the same day, March 3rd.
A director known for low-budget, goodtime horror flicks, Mendez is also the man responsible for giant arachnid flicks Big Ass Spider! and Lavalantula, as well as 2006’s The Gravedancers and 2000’s gloriously offbeat straight-to-video gem The Convent.
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 (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), Miles Doleac (American Horror Story) and Tony Bentley (The Last Exorcism), as well as Children of the Corn’s Malachai, Courtney Gains.
