Uncork’d has announced they’re bringing the upcoming horror-comedy Johnny Gruesome to DVD and VOD platforms this October.
Who’s Johnny Gruesome? His real name is Johnny Grissom, but he’s a heavy metal hard rocker and picked up “Gruesome” as a nickname. It eventually becomes fitting in more ways than one, though. One fateful evening Johnny winds up murdered, and both his best friend and girlfriend attempt to cover up the incident. Johnny doesn’t appreciate that, even when he’s dead, so he returns as a zombie bent on vengeance against his betrayers!
Johnny Gruesome stars Anthony De La Torre, Byron Brown II and Michael DeLorenzo, and was directed by Gregory Lamberson, who also wrote the novel on which the movie is based.
Watch out for Johnny on VOD October 16, and DVD January 1, 2019.
High school students Eric Carter and Johnny Grissom are best friends. Johnny is a heavy metal rebel nicknamed “Johnny Gruesome” by his classmates. When Johnny is murdered while on a drunken joyride, his killer persuades Eric and Johnny’s girlfriend to help him make the murder look like an accidental death. Johnny returns from the grave as a murderous, wisecracking zombie hell bent on revenge.
