One of the hottest genre titles you’ve never heard of is Lowlife, which not only played the Fantasia Film Festival this past July, but also the Frightfest in London, and Cinepocalypse in Chicago where IFC Midnight acquired the film for release on VOD and digital platforms April 6, 2018.
Kalyn reviewed the film out of Fantasia, calling it “gripping, calculated, and hugely impactful.”
Here’s the newest trailer that channels the best of Tarantino’s pulp revolution, while also delivering the violent goods for the horror hounds.
“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.”
Nicki Micheaux, Santana Dempsey, Ricardo Adam Zarate, and Jon Oswald star.
