IT'S BLOODY MALLERY
Now that Buffy's reign is over, some of you may be wondering where you're going to turn to get your monster killing, kicks. May we present Bloody Mallery, which has been picked up by Lions Gate for U.S. distrubution! She's not only better looking than Buffy, but she curses and her side-kicks include a drag queen and a psychic little girl, how cool is that? Did you miss the write-up in the latest issue of Fango (#220)? Well don't worry about it, we'll fill you in.
'Bloody Mallory' is a new French film from first time writer-director Julien Magnat, whose love for horror films has birthed this strange flick. It's a wicked mix of Manga style (no really) and high, kinetic, action films.
Mallory, whose husband was actually a demon whom she killed with an axe, runs an anti-paranormal commando unit charged with eliminating every evil creature that prowls France. Her partners are Vena Cava, a drag queen, and Talking Tina, a 9 year old who can project her spirit into any living thing.
In order to free a kidnapped Pope from a fallen angel who wants to free all the other fallen angels so they can destroy creation, she must call on the spirit of her dead husband for help. Together, Mallory and her team must fight a variety of deadly ghouls, monsters, and murderous assassins and save the pope before all of earth is damned!
It promises to be a pretty hokey, but good time, without all the teen angst. The trailer is available now, and while it's still in French, it'll give you a pretty good feel for the movie. Take a gander here.
