I'm guessing a large portion of you will be eager to check out the first trailer for THE THOMPSONS, the Butcher Brothers' follow-up to their indie hit THE HAMILTONS, so I'll keep it short. Just know that it's bloody as hell and makes the film look like a kick-ass time.
Starring Cory Knauf, Samuel Childs, Joseph McKelheer and Mackenzie Firgens, THE THOMPSONS has the following synopsis:
In this action-packed sequel, a bloodbath at a gas station in the desert puts the family on the run, eventually seeing them resurface in the U.K. with a new identity as “The Thompsons.” Desperate for protection in this unfamiliar country, the Thompsons seek out the help of a shadowy underground rumored to be sympathetic to vampires.
Francis agrees to make contact with the group and his quest leads to a family run pub in the isolated countryside where he meets a gorgeous waitress named Riley Stuart. As Riley shows interest in Francis, he fails to notice her blood-thirsty relatives slowly closing in on him…The Stuart clan viciously attacks! These new vamps are faster, stronger and more deadly than anything he’s encountered before. After a brutal struggle, Francis is subdued and brought back to the Stuart’s home.
As the rest of The Thompsons tears their way across the English countryside to find him, Francis must try to escape and warn them off before they’re ambushed. With the untrustworthy Riley as his only potential ally, it appears inevitable that a battle between the two clans will see blood permanently spilled.
