If a film described as a “hallucinatory epic” that happens to feature Warwick Davis (Leprechaun) sounds up your alley, then you’ll want to keep reading for additional details on writer/director/FX artist Gabe Bartalos’ Saint Bernard, which comes home this May!
From the Press Release:
From legendary special make-up effects artist Gabe Bartalos (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Darkman) comes Saint Bernard, a “must-see for the truly adventurous” (UnseenFilms.net), premiering on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital platforms on May 14th from Severin Films.
Shot on Super 16mm and 35mm film, the highly-anticipated horror jaunt fixes on a classical musical conductor who unravels into the abyss of insanity. Jason Dugre (“Bosch”), Katy Sullivan (“Last Man Standing”), Peter Iasillo, Jr. (HellBilly 58), Bob Zmuda (Man on the Moon), and Warwick Davis (Leprechaun, Solo, Return of the Jedi) star.
Writer/director Bartalos pulls heavily from his ripe imagination, creating extraordinary characters, bizarre set designs, and incredibly inspired prosthetic effects. Amid a palette of dark themes, the film takes its audience on a turbulent ride through Bernard’s surreal adventures as he spirals into madness.
Saint Bernard’s marvelously hypnotic tone displays influences characteristic of prior collaborations with art world icon Matthew Barney, horror aficionado Frank Henenlotter, and renowned photographer Mark Seliger, yet carves out a distinct new voice for Bartalos.
