Former WWE Superstar Al Snow stars in the Comedy/Horror/Sci-Fi adventure Overtime, which comes from director Matt Niehoff.
“When two hitmen are sent on a routine job, they find themselves caught up in a conspiracy they never imagined. But whatever trouble they’ve gotten themselves into is nothing compared to the wrath of Raph’s wife if he doesn’t make it home in time for his son’s birthday party.
Working late was never this brutal!”
Dig on a lengthy synopsis and one-sheet inside. Tons of imagery at the Facebook page. “Raph (Al Snow) and Max (John Wells) only kill bad guys, and only after their boss Sam, a high-powered attorney, has cashed a nice paycheck for getting her sleazy clients off the hook.
When Sam sends our heroes on a routine hit, they find themselves caught up in a conspiracy they never imagined. But whatever trouble they’ve gotten themselves into is nothing compared to the wrath of Raph’s wife if he doesn’t make it home in time for his son’s birthday party.
Being a good hitman is tough; being a good dad is killer!
Undead Backbrain got exclusive first word of this fun looking sci-fi/action/horror flick when it scored an interview with the film’s writer, DP, and producer Brian Cunningham. He describes what he and the film’s director, Matt Niehoff, were aiming for when they set out to make this film that is getting ready to hit the festival circuit.
The movie draws heavily from ideas in movies like Aliens and From Dusk Til Dawn. There’s a lot of Shaun of the Dead in there, tonally, and of course the Hit Man aspect will remind people of Boondock Saints and Pulp Fiction (mind you, I’m not comparing us to those movies … I’d never dream of going toe-to-toe with Tarantino). What you might not think of, however, is the influence movies like Lethal Weapon had on Overtime. When it gets down to it, this is a fun 1980s action comedy about two guys trying to balance work and family. The zombie-alien side of things is almost incidental.“
