An eye-opening, intense and action-packed trailer has been released for Lowlife, a film that has received consistent praise while on its festival run.
We caught the film at last year’s FrightFest and thought it was a brilliant, mental, surprising and unpredictable piece of film-making. It’s definitely one to watch if you’re after something aggressive, nasty and different.
The trailer has it all: violence, comedy, a running pregnant lady, a swastika, guns, blood and more. It’s one hell of a vicious treat if you like your thrillers to be ice-cold and relentless.
What happens when you throw together a fallen Mexican wrestler with serious rage issues, a just-out-of-prison ex-con with a regrettable face tattoo, and a recovering junkie motel owner in search of a kidney? That’s the premise of the berserk, blood-spattered, and wickedly entertaining feature debut from Ryan Prows. Set amidst the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, Lowlife zigzags back and forth in time as it charts how fate—and a ruthless crime boss—connects three down-and-out reprobates mixed up in an organ harvesting scheme that goes from bad to worse to off-the-rails insane. Careening from savagely funny to just plain savage to unexpectedly heartfelt, this audacious thriller serves up nonstop adrenaline alongside hard-hitting commentary about the state of contemporary America.
Lowlife will be released on Digital HD on 14th May, courtesy of Signature Entertainment. The film will hit the US this Friday 6th April – you lucky devils.
