The Movie Partnership & FANGORIA are excited to announce that their latest action-horror, VFW, will be celebrating its UK Premiere at FrightFest Glasgow 2020 on Saturday 7th March at the Glasgow Film Theatre ahead of its Digital Download release on 9th March.
Acclaimed Horror director Joe Begos (Almost Human, Bliss) & producers Amanda Presmyk (Dragged Across Concrete) & Dallas Sonnier (Bone Tomahawk) bring together this “insanely fun cast” (Bloody Disgusting) in “a gory and fun throwback to ’80s punk rock action movies” (Flickering Myth). VFW assembles cult film royalty featuring performances from Martin Kove (Karate Kid), Stephen Lang (Avatar), Fred Williamson (From Dusk Till Dawn) & William Sadler (Die Hard 2).
The film is set in the near future where the city has been reduced to a dystopian wasteland due to the scourge of “Hype,” a powerful narcotic that induces a simultaneous euphoric and aggressive state in its users. Kingpin Boz (Travis Hammer) impulsively asks a hyper to commit suicide for his own amusement; later, the girl’s teenage sister, Lizard (Sierra McCormick), slips into Boz’s lair and steals his Hype supply in revenge.
Lizard flees across the street to a decaying VFW hall, where she encounters Vietnam veteran Fred Parras (Stephen Lang) and a contingent of ageing soldiers who spend their days reminiscing about their lost youth, growing irrelevancy, and impending deaths. Presented with a final battle and opportunity to go down fighting rather than pass away ignominiously from old age, Fred and his men decide to protect Lizard and wage a final war against Boz, his henchmen, and the hypers.
VFW premiere tickets will be on sale from 12pm Monday 3rd February, via the festival website here: www.glasgowfilm.org/festival! However, don’t forget FrightFest also has weekend passes which will be on sale from Monday 20th January grab them quick to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the gore.
VFW will be celebrating its UK premiere 9pm on Saturday 7th March at the Glasgow Film Theatre & will be available on Digital Download from 9th March.
