Not reviewed at press time. Get gooey with the latest from rising horror director Joe Begos, who also recently unleashed art-gore masterpiece Bliss. Here he goes full-on splattterpunk in an homage to 1980s street-sleaze cinema with a ragtag team of veterans – including many familiar faces from the exploitation hall of fame – facing down a horde of zombie-esque gangster junkies in a VFW hall. After debuting in Austin as part of Fantastic Fest 2019, this brain-crushin’ delight makes its neon-and-gore-drenched return as part of the genre festival’s year-round programming.
