LA Screamfest 09 Kicks Off With A ‘Tournament’

This one doesn’t QUITE sound like a horror movie, but it DOES sound like a pretty great, bloody time. Scott Mann’s The Tournament, which concerns 30 assassins trying to kill each other for an ultimate prize (so it’s like Highlander meets… Mr and Mrs. Smith?) has been picked to kick off this year’s Screamfest on October 16th. Boasting a good cast (Ving Rhames, Robert Carlyle, Lost’s Ian Somerhalder, etc) and I assume at least 29 death scenes, I’ll be there whether its horror or not. And I’ll be there for the remaining 8 days of the festival as well, seeing as many of the films that I can. So come on down (tix available HERE) and buy me a coffee!

The Tournament is an explosive, action-loaded thriller where the winner takes all. Every seven years, thirty of the world’s most deadly assassins face off against one another for an outrageous cash prize. There’s only one rule: kill or die.
