Even the best superhero flicks are starting to feel a bit "been there, done that" if you ask me, so it's my pleasure to meet SEPTIC MAN, a most unusual brand of crime-fighter who just happens to be infected by sewer water. Someone tell Toxie that he's got serious competition!
Already filmed and in post-production, SEPTIC MAN was scripted by PONTYPOOL writer Tony Burgess and directed by MONSTER BRAWL helmer Jesse Thomas Cook. Today Twitch revealed a handful of stills from the genre-bending flick, as well as the synopsis. Take a look below:
The story chronicles the unimaginable ordeal of a small town septic worker who becomes trapped inside a holding tank of raw sewage while investigating a deadly water contamination crisis. Imprisoned, infected, and insane, Septic Man struggles to find an escape while battling a tandem of revolting serial killers.
The cast features Jason Brown in the title role, with Molly Dunsworth (Hobo With a Shotgun), Robert Maillet (Pacific Rim), Timothy Burd (SAW 2 & 3) and Julian Richings (Survival of the Dead) rounding the ensemble out.
A 2013 release is planned for this sick number, so keep your eyes open (and nose closed) for more SEPTIC MAN goods in the near future.
