Back in 2007, a group of young aspiring Canadian filmmakers started a production company called Astron-6. The group became known for their 80s-style low budget horror comedies such as Manborg, and Father’s Day (both 2011). Two of the Astron-6 filmmakers are Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski and their latest film, The Void, opens this Friday in theaters and on VOD. Written and directed by the pair, the film pays homage to 80s gore-fests, specifically the films of horror master John Carpenter. While not always set on what type of horror film it is, The Void certainly will not bore you, and barely gives you a second to come up for air. It is balls to the wall gore and scares for all 90-minutes, and will certainly leave fans of 80s horror very happy.
From Jeremy Gillespie and Steve Kostanski; the duo behind the horror comedy Father’s Day comes one of the most anticipated horror releases of the year, The Void. There is a new trailer out on Yahoo Video that offers insights into a world that is compared to that of horror master, John Carpenter’s.
