Renegade indie horror filmmaker Joe Sherlock, who has more than a dozen indie horror feature films under his belt already (and has at least been on crew for many more), is at it again with his newest no-budget indie horror. Drifter is now making its way out to viewers via a special edition DVD and an upcoming Portland premiere (premiere details here). For those not in the Portland area, the DVD can be ordered directly from Sherlock’s site. From the trailer it looks like there’s plenty of slasher elements, a bit of a bash at ‘found footage’ (literally), and it also seems to be a bit more on the serious side than many of Sherlock’s previous films, not by much, but ever so slightly. Check out the details below, and the trailer at the end of the article.
From the press release:
Director Joe Sherlock’s creepy indie horror flick, DRIFTER, is newly available as a limited edition unrated director’s cut DVD, following a successful World Premiere as the “Friday Night Midnight Movie” at Crypticon Seattle 2014, and leading up to a Portland, Oregon premiere near the end of August.
In DRIFTER, a mysterious drifter hides out in a vacant house much to the realtor’s chagrin. The Drifter is losing his mind with bloody consequences for handymen, painters and others who show up at the house, but why?
Sherlock describes the movie as, “A fun b-horror ride filled with blood, guts and hot chicks!”
Sherlock wrote, directed, shot and edited the feature, which features an 80s synth core by Steve (Shriek of the Sasquatch, Zombie Pirates) Sessions that calls to mind PHANTASM and THE FOG.
The movie stars Bob Olin as the Drifter, alongside Richard Johnson, Stephanie Lunceford, Bryn Kristi and a number of featured players from NBC’s GRIMM including Sonya Davis, Rollyn Stafford and Shawna Dedek. Special effects make-up work is done by Rob Merickel.
