The first video of the J.T. Petty's Western thriller has provided horror movie fans with an encounter with the gruesome species.
Lionsgate Film have presented a brand new clip from "The Burrowers". Reeling in a first look into the horror film, the clip lets out how a man is being attack at night by an acid spitting monster. Though the footage doesn't really display the monster, it can be seen that it paralyzed its victim first before dragging him along.
Set in Dakota territories in 1879, "Burrowers" tells the story of a group of men becoming a prey of something more than human. When a family is brutally abducted at night, an Irish immigrant, a naive teenager, an ex-slave and a pair of aging Indian-fighters are gathered together to form a rescue team. Expecting to encounter great dangers of the Old West, they are faced with an even more terrifying situation as a gruesome species is stalking their every move.
Directed and written by J.T. Petty, the horror thriller will be making its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival sometime next week before celebrating its U.S. premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin on September 21. Set to be premiered on DVD in April 2009, it will also be screened at Screamfest in October. The movie stars William Mapother, Clancy Brown, Sean Patrick Thomas, Laura Leighton, Alexander Skarsgard and others.
