Epidemic infection films are so common in horror that they really are their own sub-genre, but I’ll admit I’m a huge sucker for them anyway. While Condemned seems like your typical viral outbreak flick, the more I learn about it the more my curiosity is piqued. I’m extremely intrigued to see what former professional skateboarder Eli Morgan Gesner has to offer in his writer/directorial debut. Also making their debut in horror is Sean Penn’s daughter, Dylan Penn. Already a thriving model, it’ll be interesting to see if she’s inherited her dad’s acting chops.
Before you balk at all of the newbies, though, there’s a lot of horror talent involved with the project as well. Producers Jack Heller and Dallas Sonnier, with Caliber Media, have produced solid genre titles previously, such as Bad Milo, Some Kind of Hate, and Bone Tomahawk. Actors Ronen Rubinstein, Jon Abrahams, and Lydia Hearst have already proven themselves no strangers to horror, too.
Set to release in theaters and VOD on Friday, November 13th, 2015, we now have a trailer to whet our appetite for what is shaping up to be an interesting and gross addition to the sub-genre.
