Check out the trailer below for an awesome new horror movie straight from comic book pages. Who says Marvel gets to have all the fun? The CHAIR is the latest from director Chad Ferrin and writers Erin Kohut and Peter Simeti. It stars Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story: Asylum, American Horror Story: Freakshow), Bill Oberst Jr. (who I’ve gushed about in reviews past), Zack Galligan (Gremlins), and last but not least Rowdy Roddy Piper (They Live).
From the Press Release
Based on the Alterna Comics graphic novel of the same name, THE CHAIR follows the story of Richard Sullivan, an innocent man struggling to escape execution on death row. Witnessing the savage killings of his fellow inmates at the hand of the prison’s sadistic and psychotic Warden, Sullivan decides that the only way to survive is to fight back. But as he matches the brutality occurring in the prison, Sullivan is forced to come face to face with his sanity and his own horrifying past.A successful crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter helped to provide pre-production and development costs. Another campaign, this time on Indiegogo, has been planned for late-April as funds will be raised for post-production costs. An “all or nothing” fund-raising model will be used as opposed to Indiegogo’s traditional method of real-time funding. More details to come as the launch date draws near.
