More stills from the films screening at this year’s Fantastic Fest are starting to come in and we’re going to be doling a few out over the coming days. This first batch includes two new ones from Juan Of The Dead and a bunch from Julia X, Zombie Ass (yes, Zombie Ass) and the short Cost Of Living.
I’m not sure what to make of Julia X, some of the pics look flat while some are downright inspired. Meanwhile I have left the entire synopsis for Zombie Ass intact. It’s practically a short story and well worth the read. Meanwhile, if you’re a fan of They Live you might recognize the hallways in these Cost Of Living pics.
Hit the jump to check out the stills. And read the synopsis for Zombie Ass.
Most of these stills are high resolution and can be made bigger with a click. Sadly, the Juan Of The Dead stills (along with the last Cost Of Living still) are fairly small.
COST OF LIVING
Director: BenDavid Grabinski
Starring: Brandon Routh, Bret Harrison
“Silas (Brandon Routh) and Jerry (Bret Harrison) work for an unusual corporation. One day things go wrong… Scary things.”
JUAN OF THE DEAD
Director: Alejandro Brugués, Spain/Cuba
Starring: Andrea Duro, Luis Alberto García and Jorge Molina
“The zombie world has yet to witness one last stand – Cuba. An outbreak hits the island on the anniversary of the revolution, so Juan and his friends set out to conquer the undead who, according to government reports, are unruly Americans continuing their quest of undermining the regime.”
Director: P.J. Pettiette
Starring: Kevin Sorbo, Valerie Azlynn, Joel David Moore
“Directed by P.J. Pettiette in 3D. Julia (Valerie Azlynn) stars as an alluring predator who meets her match on an internet date with a man whose hidden profile is a blend of Ted Bundy and Hannibal Lechter. The man in question is none other than “Hercules” himself, Kevin Sorbo, who The Hollywood Reporter says “he’s a mesmeric nutcase.” The Reporter continues, “The depth is enhanced, as well, by a multi-dimensional plot with doses of cheeky humor and verbal panache, as well as in-your-face visual thrusts that make keen use of the format.”
Director: Noboru Iguchi
“We are going to flush you! The most crap-tastic zombie movie ever to emerge from the sewers of low-budget filmmaking is finally upon us, and it’s from the perverted mind of cinematic madman and legendary ass-fetishist Noboru Iguchi, creator of THE MACHINE GIRL, ROBO-GEISHA and KARATE-ROBO ZABORGAR! Given free reign by a generous, independent producer to plumb the depths of his toilet-obsessed imagination, Iguchi has created a splatter comedy guaranteed to warm the bowels of those with the stomach for it. Wracked with guilt over the suicide of her sister Ai, who was tormented by high school bullies, pretty young karate student Megu accompanies a group of older friends on a camping trip into the woods: smart girl Aya, her druggie boyfriend Také, big-boobed model Maki, and nerdy Naoi. Things start to go badly when Maki finds a parasitical worm inside a fish they catch – and wolfs it down alive, in the hope that it’ll help keep her skinny! Soon after, and not so unexpectedly in situations like this, zombies show up and begin to complicate things further. After they’re attached by a crowd of poop-covered undead who emerge from an outhouse toilet, the group seeks refuge at the home of strange Dr. Tanaka and his daughter Sachi. But unbeknownst to them, Tanaka has been conducting experiments on the parasites–and the zombies!–and has another fate in mind for the five strangers from the city. What’s the connection between the parasites and the zombies? And can Megu’s karate alone help them escape, or will she have to rely on the liberating power of farts to save the day? Featuring special effects by FF 2009-2010 guest Yoshihiro Nishimura, and some truly jaw-dropping contributions from Iguchi’s genius subconscious (parasite anus-zombies?!?), ZOMBIE ASS is a heaping plate of bad taste that may go down rough but is guaranteed to come out smooth and regular.”
