Just when you think you’ve had all the Uwe ("House of the Dead") Boll you can stand, up pops a brand-new press release full of certifiable insanity. Anyway, you know how Boll’s next movie ("Dungeon Siege") is based on a video game but is NOT a horror movie?? Well, his one after that WILL be a horror movie that’s NOT based on a video game! The versatility is staggering…
Courtesy of SKNR.net, here’s the full skinny on Uwe Boll’s next project, an "extreme horror" project called … "Seed."
June 12, 2006 – Vancouver, BC – US Federal law: If you have been convicted to death by the electric chair & survive three jolts of 15,000 volts each for 15 seconds, you get to go free.
Sam Seed, an insane mass murderer, is scheduled for execution at the hands of Warden Wright. Before the executioner throws the switch, Wright steps in front of Seed, “Do you have any last words?” Seed, “ I’ll see you again.”
After three attempts to electrocute, complete with boiling blood that steeps from his eyes, he’s still alive. The executioner, Wright & the doctor collectively agree, that the breathing Seed be pronounced dead. He is bound and buried alive. After biting & clawing his way to the surface, Seed, the blood soaked, enraged madman, is now bent on vengeance.
The reign of violence that follows will redefine the boundaries of extreme gore, physical & mental torture explored through cinema.
Based on a true story. Seattle 1972.
