This trailer is something else… and pardon the Mad Max pun. My friend Joey uses it often.
I definitely got echoes of Noboru Iguchi here with Sweet Karma director Andrew T. Hunt’s new film, Spare Parts. The pitch here roars with outlandish gore, explosive action and dystopian, escapist extravagance with what looks to be some thrilling performances by Michelle Argyris, Emily Alatalo, Kiriana Stanton and Chelsea Muirhead, and actor Julian Richings.
In a godforsaken bar in the middle of nowhere – an all-girl punk band, Ms. 45, rip the stage apart with their punk spirit. Their performance impresses an enthusiastic fan who lures the girls into a trap, sedates them and starts… customizing them. The four wake up with an axe, drill or chainsaw attached to one arm and are forced to fight gladiator-style, in an arena style auto-wrecking yard for the amusement of the Emperor and his sadistic townsfolk. The women must now truly band together and use all of their talents if they’re going to get out alive.
The film launched international sales at the Cannes Virtual Market repped by Raven Banner where Hunt is also partner. It is produced by Pasha Patriki and Raven Banner under their production label, Hangar 18 Media. And holy shit… I want this. Bloody Disgusting broke the exclusive on Wednesday.
