First trailer and one sheet for Hellmouth arrives online

Take heart fans of the strange and unusual – particularly those of you with a weakness for the era of classic drive-in pulp. Foresight Features (Monster Brawl) have just released their first trailer and one sheet for John Geddes (Exit Humanity) latest indie horror Hellmouth.

Written by Pontypool's Tony Burgess (Pontypool), Hellmouth stars Stephen McHattie (The Watchmen) as Charlie Baker, a dying gravekeeper who who must pass through Hell as he journeys to save the soul of a beautiful woman.

Reminiscent of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City (2005), Hellmouth is an ode to classic 1950s horror and fantasy B-movies.

"I wanted to create a story-driven film with fantasy and horror combined. Something that was directly inspired by the era of Hitchcock and even Ed Wood. Working with a writer like Tony Burgess was a pleasure as we both love the simplicity in many of the old classic films of the 50′s and 60′s, and even earlier in films like Nosferatu and Faust. We worked really hard to make Hellmouth something fresh."

While the completed Hellmouth was unveiled to distributors at this years Toronto International Film Festival, no firm release date has been set as yet. As always, watch this space.
