Midnight Releasing has picked up the long time in the making supernatural rock n’ roll horror film, Chicago Rot. The film has been in production since 2010, and even ran a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2011. And now we can all finally see the fruits of director Dorian Weinzimmer’s labors (Weinzimmer co-wrote the script with Brant McCrea). Chicago Rot stars John Alston, Kelso Ashby III, Jojo Baby, Shira Barber, Paul Barile, Roy Burgess, and Dave Cartwright. Dig on the plot crunch:
After years of rotting in Joliet, Les, a wrongfully imprisoned street legend known as “The Ghoul”, is released into a mad search through Chicago’s back alleys for the man who slaughtered his mother and robbed him of his soul. Aided by mysterious benefactors, he must delve beneath the city into a modern labyrinth of gutters whose tendrils have grown deep while he was gone. What unfolds is a desperate tale of brute force tragedy set in the supernatural underworld of Chicago, where heroes are reduced to horror-shows, villains dream of their own demise, and good and evil prove to be antiquated concepts.
Now, check out the trailer:
