Brett DeJager’s awesome-sounding comedy-horror Bonejangles has been picked up for worldwide distribution by Wild Eye Releasing.
Heading up the film’s cast is horror favourite Reggie Bannister, the star of the Phantasm series. Also featuring are horror regular Elissa Dowling (Starry Eyes, We Are Still Here, Death House), relative newcomer Julia Cavanaugh and Katie Walgrave, who starred in DeJager’s feature debut, The Legend of Cooley Moon.
While transporting the unstoppable killer Bonejangles to an asylum, a group of police officers encounter a hellish pit stop: a cursed town where the dead rise from their graves. Now the only way to save their lives and the town is to release Bonejangles and fight the curse…with something much worse.
“We signed with Wild Eye because we wanted to work with a distributor that understands what good horror movies are all about and had the capacity to get Bonejangles in the hands of as many horror fans as possible,” DeJager said when the deal was finalised. “You can tell they love a good horror flick just as much as the rest of us, and that is exactly why we trusted them to deliver Bonejangles to the world.”
Check out the trailer below; it suggests a tasty proposition for fans of ‘80s throwback horror.
