The feature film BEYOND THE GRAVE (aka PORTO DOS MORTOS) will have it’s American Premiere September 9th at the Arizona Underground Film Festival and have its World Premiere at the Cinefantasy Film Festival in São Paulo the same day.
Produced by Lockheart Filmes Ltda., and written/directed by Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro, BEYOND THE GRAVE follows the unstoppable hunt by a vengeful cop named Lockheart for a supernatural serial killer known as the The Dark Rider.
The Official Synopsis:
In a devastated post-apocalyptic world where the rules of reality are transformed by magic and madness, a vengeful police officer searches for a possessed serial killer in a battle of the not-so-good versus absolute evil.
Director Davi de Olveira Pinheiro has stated,
“BEYOND THE GRAVE is a genre film based on the loneliness of a post-apocalyptic planet. Through the creation of this particular world, I tried to convey not only the films that I love, but the fragility of the human being in this time of fear and battle against nature, without of course forgetting to bring some great action and adventure with it!”.
The film seems to have a unique flavor coming from these Brazilian filmmakers, setting a tone for their version of horror through a post-apocalyptic world of lost law and order. Katana blades, six shooters, a sadistic serial killer and the walking dead make for enough fun to check this out when it hits your neck of the woods.
