We love our absurd horror here at Mania. Every week our own Chuck Francisco brings you a column on it called “Shock-O-Rama” (read them here). So when a Red Band trailer titled “Septic Man” came across our desk, we knew we had watch it and share it. Starz Digital Media will be releasing SEPTIC MAN on VOD on August 12th, in movie theaters on August 15th and on DVD on August 19th. When the film premiered at the 2013 Fantastic Fest, Jason David Brown received the Best Actor Award for horror.
Synopsis: From the creators of MONSTER BRAWL, EXIT HUMANITY, and PONTYPOOL comes this award-winning origin story of Jack, a sewage worker who's determined to uncover the cause of the town's water contamination crisis. But when he becomes trapped underground in a septic tank without food or water he undergoes a hideous and repulsive transformation. In order to escape the tank, he must team up with a docile Giant and confront a murdering madman. Hailed as a "stunning," "funny," and "visceral story that will leave you shaken - and desperate for a shower," SEPTIC MAN is a cinematic odyssey into the darkest depths of horror and beyond.
SEPTIC MAN features Jason David Brown, Molly Dunsworth, Robert Maillet and is directed by Jesse Thomas Cook.
