Coming April 15th: Death Do Us Part! I’m going to assume that death happens because there’s no “until” in front of that (and also because we write about horror movies on this website and there’s always deaths happening), but we’ll all have to buy it to find out if I’m right. Anywho, the film is being released by Anchor Bay Entertainment, who makes awesome movies, and tells the story of two people whose dream wedding turns into a horrific nightmare. The trailer is below:
Here’s the synopsis:
“Kennedy Jamieson (Julia Benson, STARGATE UNIVERSE, THAT BURNING FEELING) has waited her whole life for her perfect wedding. Engaged to the charming Ryan Harris (Peter Benson, THE KILLING, ARROW), it looks like her dream is about to come true. Except for one thing – the young couple hasn’t had a chance to celebrate their respective bachelor/bachelorette parties. Ryan’s best man Chet (Kyle Cassie, TRUE JUSTICE, LOST BOYS 2: THE TRIBE) books a remote cabin in the woods to throw them a “Jack and Jill” party that they’ll never forget. It doesn’t take long before things take a horrifying turn as members of the group are brutally picked off one by one. Kennedy and Ryan had planned for the celebration of a lifetime – but how long will that lifetime last?”
Death Do Us Part is directed by Nicholas Humphries (Screamfest, and Best Short Film Winner The Little Mermaid). The story comes from the minds of the starring actress, Julia Benson, and writers/producers Peter Benson (District 9which is awesome because I love that movie) and Ryan Copple (Time Before Light and Riese). It was nominated for 3 Leo Awards. According to Wikipedia, the Leo Awards are the film and television industry awards in British Columbia, Canada. They were founded by the Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Foundation of British Columbia in 1999. I peeked through a couple of their “Past Winners” lists, but nothing jumped out at me as recognizable. Oh well.
Here’s the specifics on the DVD: it’s in Anamorphic Widescreen (1:78:1) format, has Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, is 89 minutes long, and is selling for $19.98. Bonus features include “Death Do Us Part: Behind the Scenes.”
That’s all for now. I have to go give my cat a bath (for medical reasons) that I’m sure she’ll really enjoy and probably thank me for by being very dramatic and pretending she can’t walk like she usually does after a bath.
