In THE VIOLENT KIND, a ruthless pack of motorcycle-riding maniacs stake their claim in the wilds of Northern California. One of the gang, young Cody, has just gotten out of jail after taking the fall for another biker. At a wild, secluded party, Cody’s ex-girlfriend, Michelle (scream queen Tiffany Shepis), turns up hysterical, drenched in blood…and carrying a dark, terrifying secret. Then a group of ’50s-era greasers shows up and things really get weird…
Reviewing the film, Twitch’s Ryland Aldrich said: “THE VIOLENT KIND is sexy, bloody, and way out there. In other words, it’s a lot of fun.” Mel Valentin of efilmcritic.com wrote: “Whatever you might think about all the genre-shifting and genre-mashing (or is it teeth-gnashing?) in THE VIOLENT KIND, it’s clear that the Butcher Brothers are risk-takers…On that level, THE VIOLENT KIND never fails.” And Kristof G. of Montreal’s Fantasia film festival noted: “The spirit of THE VIOLENT KIND fits perfectly into the grindhouse revival.”
So mark your calendar for the May 2 LA screening of THE VIOLENT KIND! And read the preview in FANGORIA #303 (on sale this month). See you at the show!
