A high-tech and stylish homage to Ghostbusters and 80s/90s action films, Nekrotronic premiered at TIFF last year and was definitely an indie crowd-pleaser so it's no surprise to hear that it will be getting a theatrical and VOD release later this year from Momentum Pictures.
"Howard North, a down on his luck sewage worker, gets dragged into a global conflict between the Nekromancers, a family of badass demon hunters, and Finnegan (Monica Bellucci) - an evil demon who absorbs people's souls to increase her power. When Howard finds out the truth behind Finnegan's past and her dark plans for the future, he teams up with his new friends to discover he is the ultimate Nekromancer, the only one with the power to defeat her and save the world."
Nekrotronic was co-written and directed by Kiah Roache-Turner (Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead), co-written by Tristan Roache-Turner, and stars Ben O'Toole (Hacksaw Ridge, The Water Diviner), Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Reloaded, Mozart in the Jungle), Caroline Ford (Amazon's Carnival Row, TV's Once Upon a Time), Tess Haubrich (The Wolverine, Alien: Covenant), Epine Bob Savea, and David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and Return of the King, 300).
Momentum Pictures will release the movie to select theaters, VOD, and digital HD on August 9th. Here's a look at some new stills and the brand new poster for the movie.
