Check out this trailer for the Dolph Lundgren-starring Don’t Kill It, which comes from Big Ass Spider! director Mike Mendez. An official, HD version of the previously leaked trailer, it certainly doesn’t scrimp on the bloodshed.
A veteran of enjoyably lowbrow horror, Mendez is also the man responsible for Lavalantula, 2006’s The Gravedancers and 2000’s 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 (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.
Don’t Kill It has its US premiere this weekend at Austin’s Fantastic Fest.
