A teaser trailer has been released for the horror comedy How to Kill Monsters, which will have its world premiere at FrightFest
The Creature Below and Book of Monsters director Stewart Sparke’s horror comedy How to Kill Monsters is set to make its world premiere at FrightFest on August 25th (tickets to the premiere are available HERE), and with just two weeks to go until that date arrives, we’ve gotten our hands on a teaser trailer for the film. Check it out in the embed above!
Coming our way from Dark Rift Horror and RO Pictures, How to Kill Monsters was scripted by Sparke and Paul Butler. Here’s the synopsis: The sole survivor of a blood-drenched massacre must team up with a rag-tag bunch of rookie cops and lawbreakers to defend a police station from an invasion of Lovecraftian monsters from another dimension.
A press release promises that, “With a menagerie of monsters realized entirely with practical effects and buckets of fake blood and guts thrown in for good measure, How to Kill Monsters will scratch the itch of horror fans craving a throwback popcorn horror movie that delivers thrills, kills and laughs in equal measure.“
Sparke adds that the film is “a love letter to the 80s and 90s horror movies that I grew up watching on VHS” that will mix in “a dash of British humor in the vein of Hot Fuzz and the self-aware twists and turns of Scream to deliver genre fans a blood-soaked popcorn horror movie that feels both nostalgic and fresh.“
Produced by Cal O’Connell, How to Kill Monsters stars Lyndsey Craine (Eating Miss Campbell), Arron Dennis (Zomblogalypse), Fenfen Huang (Now You See Me 2), Daniel Thrace (Blood Myth), and genre icon Nicholas Vince, whose credits include Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II, and Nightbreed.
I won’t be able to attend the FrightFest premiere, but I hope How to Kill Monsters will be making its way around the world very soon, because the movie looks like a blast to me. I’m really looking forward to checking this one out.
