Hellacious Acres – John Glass Is Not Your Hero

John Glass wakes up in a desolate barn from a long cryogenic slumber, to be informed that not only has the planet been devastated by a third world war, but also reduced to little habitability by a subsequent alien invasion. He learns that in order to help reestablish a livable atmosphere for what’s left of humanity, he’ll have to go on a solitary mission to retrieve important codes dispersed throughout remote locations. Soon enough he’ll encounter more than he “bargained” for: aliens, crazy survivors, inadequate equipment, LOTS of walking and a pretty unhealthy dose of bad luck…

That’s the premise for the film Hellacious Acres: The Case of John Glass from Sombreself Films. Made on a budget of less than $9000, Hellacious Acres promises to honor the unsung heroes of war through a science-fiction lens filtered with dark and deadpan humor. Basically, this sounds like my kind of movie. The film will get its World Premiere at the Bloodfest Fantastique Festival on June 14th in St. Kilda in Australia. I really hope it hits the festival circuit shortly thereafter as I would like the chance to check it out. View the trailer and let us know what you think!
