While the mash up of horror and comedy can often breed unsavory results, 68 Kill looks to make itself known as both disturbing and humorous. The trailer teases sleazy hotel rooms, a murderous sugar baby, and everyone’s favorite dreamboat goofball, Matthew Gray Gubler.
Trailer-dwelling, sewage-pumping Chip (Matthew Gray Gubler) may not lead the most glamorous life, but he’s got one thing going for him: he’s head over heels infatuated with his girlfriend Liza (AnnaLynne McCord). He’s more than willing to overlook her wild streak—the fact that she’s hooking up with their landlord; her rather extreme mood swings —so when she proposes a plot to steal $68,000, he goes along with the plan. But when what was supposed to be a simple heist turns into an off-the-rails, blood-spattered crime spree, Chip learns the hard way just how deranged the love of his life really is. The new film from Troma alum Trent Haaga blends wicked comedy with pure pulp thrills for a no-holds-barred blast of insanity.
Appearing to take subtle inspiration from Rob Zombie’s Firefly family, 68 Kill is likely to present superior acting and dialogue to freshen up the white trash killing spree plot line.
