One of the more interesting films set to debut at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas is a film called He Never Died starring the illustrious Henry Rollins.  A horror comedy about a man who can’t die who also happens to be a cannibal, the film looks to be a skillful blend of shocking violence and nuanced guffaws.

Directed by Jason Krawczyk and starring Henry Rollins (Feast, Wrong Turn 2), Booboo Stewart (The Asylum’s 666: The Child), Steven Ogg (Grand Theft Auto 5), and James Cade (Antiviral), the film will make its debut March 17 at midnight.  There will be a  special event,  A Conversation with Henry Rollins earlier in the day, where the prolific creative talent will discuss the film and his career in general before the midnight debut.

We have the first clip from the film below as well as several stills from the production. Stay tuned for more information.

Jack’s in a rut. Depression and severe anti-social behavior has whittled down his existence to sleeping and watching television. Seeing the human race as little more than meat with a pulse, Jack has no interest to bond with anyone. There’s little purpose for him to make friends with someone he’d eventually eat or outlive by more than a millennia. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility.
