Trailer: Vinegar Syndrome has joined forces with the team behind The Last Drive-In to make the horror film Eight Eyes
The home video distribution company Vinegar Syndrome is getting into making original productions, and they’re teaming up with the production company Not the Funeral Home, which brings the world the Shudder streaming series The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs, on the first of their Vinegar Syndrome Originals. The film is called Eight Eyes – and while a release date hasn’t been announced yet, a trailer for the film has arrived online. You can check it out in the embed above.
Directed by The Last Drive-In director Austin Jennings, who also wrote the screenplay with Matthew Frink, Eight Eyes has the following synopsis: A mysterious local crashes a couple’s vacation through the former Yugoslavia, pulling them deeper into his web of psychic rituals.
Emily Sweet (V/H/S/99), Bradford Thomas (the upcoming Cannibal Mukbang), and Bruno Veljanovski (Subspecies V: Bloodrise) star.
The Last Drive-In producers Justin A. Martell and Matt Manjourides produced the film with Milos Djukelic.
The official website for Eight Eyes provides the following information: “Photographed entirely on location in Serbia and Macedonia and on 16mm Kodak film, Eight Eyes draws from European genre cinema and American horror films of the 70s to create a nightmarish tableau of nostalgia twisted into berserk, new shapes. Set among the ruins of the former Yugoslavia, Eight Eyes was developed with significant contributions from the film’s local cast and crew to ensure an authentic portrayal of the cultural environment in which it is set – one rarely been documented on film.“
The fact that this movie is coming from the team behind The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs is enough to get me to check it out. They’re doing great work bringing us more Joe Bob Briggs on a regular basis, and by doing that they’ve earned my support for anything else they decide to make. Of course, it helps that I enjoyed the Eight Eyes trailer and find the retro style of the film to be very appealing.
