The Revenant

When The Revenant played at Fantastic Fest in 2009, it was an excellent hour-and-a-half movie hiding inside a two-hour cut. It had potential, but it’s unclear what state the film is in now as it prepares to finally invade theaters.

In the movie from director Kerry Prior, an Iraqi soldier (David Anders) comes back to life but needs to drink human blood to keep his soul from hurting all the time. He entrusts his best pal (Chris Wylde) with helping him get the red stuff, but soon his buddy wants to be a vampire too. Why? Because when you’re a vampire, you can also be a vigilante with little to no danger to your physical form.

So, yes, the best description of this bad boy is that it’s an indie horror buddy dramedy vigilante movie. It’s the result of a quick spin in the genre blender, and now it has a trailer to entice you:

The Revenant is in select theaters this August.
