The Norwegian horror flick DARK SOULS (otherwise known as ZOMBIE DRILLER KILLER) just landed on VOD today, where you can find it on various platforms, and will be getting a Blu-ray/DVD release later this year on June 17th. We just scored a new trailer for the flick and it features plenty of that red stuff we love so much around here! Anything alternately titled ZOMBIE DRILLER KILLER is at least worth checking out, right? Dig it below!

A young girl is jogging in the woods when she's suddenly attacked by a man in an orange jumpsuit. Her assailant drills a hole in her skull and leaves her for dead. When the police call the girl's father to ask him to identify his daughter's body in the morgue, he tells them that she has just walked in and is sitting in front of her PC. But there's something seriously wrong with her. Black oil is flowing from her eyes and the only message she's able to type on her screen is one long cry for help. And she's not alone. All over town, people are attacked by men in orange jumpsuits with electrical drills. The victims all suffer from the same symptoms, with their bodies slowly disintegrating in front of their loved ones. Frustrated with the lack of results from the local police, the father takes it on himself to investigate the attacks and where he begins to uncover the government's secret behind the assaults.
DARK SOULS has previously been screened in competition at the 44th Sitges Film Festival, and received a theatrical release in Norway in 2011, followed by a video release in UK (Lionsgate), Scandinavia, Japan, France, Netherlands, Spain and Germany. It was written and directed by César Ducasse & Mathieu Peteul and stars Morten Rudå, Kyrre Haugen Sydness, Ida Elise Broch, Johanna Gustavsson, Karl Sundby, Jan Hårstad and Marianne Rødj.
