We first told you that Uwe Boll, in addition to his latest video-game-based features, is preparing to shoot an “extreme horror film” called SEED in Vancouver this July.
Fango has got some more information on the plot of the movie (which Boll also scripted), which is based on a true story that occurred in Seattle in 1972. According to federal law, any Death Row prisoner who survives three jolts in the electric chair lasting 15 seconds each is allowed to go free; the film focuses on Sam Seed, an insane mass murderer who has a date with Old Sparky. “After three attempts to electrocute, complete with boiling blood that steeps from his eyes, he’s still alive,” according to the synopsis. “The executioner, Warden Wright and the doctor collectively agree that the breathing Seed be pronounced dead. He is bound and buried alive. After biting and clawing his way to the surface, Seed, the bloodsoaked, enraged madman, is now bent on vengeance.”
We’re further promised that “The reign of violence that follows will redefine the boundaries of extreme gore, physical and mental torture explored through cinema.” The cast is led by Will Sanderson (from Boll’s HOUSE OF THE DEAD, BLOODRAYNE and upcoming IN THE NAME OF THE KING), Michael Paré (also from BLOODRAYNE), Ralf (THE SCORPION KING) Moeller and Andrew (SHADOWBUILDER) Jackson. Boll will promote the movie at the Vancouver science fiction/fantasy convention Timeless Destinations, which runs July 31-August 6. The director will appear on stage with his SEED cast, show clips from that film and IN THE NAME OF THE KING and host tours of the SEED set. Proceeds from the show will go to Make-A-Wish and other charities; click on the convention link for more details.
