Wanna see an impressive death by drumsticks? How about a decapitation with guitar strings? Love the greenish gore and sickly splatter of Evil Dead? It’s all here.

Clocking in at under 19 minutes this riotous rock and roll horror will leave you reeling for more. Luckily for us there are plans to extend it into a feature film, with a script and casting already in place.

After wrapping up its New Orleans shoot earlier this year, Schism has released its first batch of stills. And at least one of these features star Vinnie Jones (Snatch, Midnight Meat Train) doing some menacing sh*t in a very Vinnie Jones way.
As previously announced on Bloody back in October, Schism was written by Adam Gierasch and his partner Jace Anderson (both who teamed for Night of the Demons and Autopsy), with Gierasch once again directing. Callum Blue (“Smallville”) and Ashlynn Yennie (The Human Centipede) also star in in the picture. This is a dark indie thriller in the vein of Jacob’s Ladder.
