The Future in Bullets of Justice Looks Like a Pigsty: Red Band Trailer

Bullets of Justice is a post-apocalyptic horror thriller. From director Valeri Milev (Re-Kill), this film takes place after WW III. In the future, half-human and half-pig soldiers rule the world.

This title was shot in parts of Kazakhstan and Bulgaria. The latest release details are hosted here.

The film's Red Band trailer tries to relate to current events. A Marxist slogan "ACAB" appears at the fourty-seven second point of the clip. And, these pigs might be representative of something else. Full of action, this trailer promises a wild ride through a future dystopia.

The Pale Door Opens into a Witches' Coven this October 6th

Tagline: "It Was the Perfect Score, But Hell Was Their Reward."

The Pale Door is a horror western. Presented by Joe R. Lansdale (Bubba Ho-tep), this feature has already released on Digital platforms (Aug. 21st). Now, the film is set to show on other formats this October. In the film, The Dalton Gang rob a train and rescue a young woman. Led back to a brothel, these train robbers find a coven of witches in a ghost town. This feature was directed by Aaron B. Koontz (Scare Package), with Cameron Burns and Keith Lansdale contributing to the script. A trailer is available ahead of the release, with more release details below.

As an aside, the Dalton Gang was a real group of train robbers, who operated in Kansas. The gang only lasted a couple of years, before two brothers were shot and killed - with the survivors forming another gang - the Wild Bunch.

The trailer fleshes out more of the story. A train robbery goes off without a hitch. But, some of the cargo offers a surprise. In the ghost town, the witches reveal themselves after a night of drinking.
