Upgrade gets killer retro 80's action VHS trailer

Haha. This is f*cking awesome. It looks like the team over at CryptTV have just put together a badass throwback trailer for Blumhouse and Leigh Whannell's upcoming sci-fi horror-action flick UPGRADE starring Logan Marshall-Green, Rosco Campbell, Richard Cawthorne, and Betty Gabriel.

The trailer is cut and crafted in the style of an 80's VHS promo and it is beyond good times. Personally, I miss this kind of promo. Sure we've seen DEATH WISH get a retro Grindhouse-style trailer this past year, but I want more of these VHS throwbacks. I'm a sucker for VHS nostalgia and I literally can't get enough.

If you're like me and think this sounds like killer good times, you can check out the trailer below which tells the tale of Green's character who:

After his wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also leaves him paralyzed, is approached by a billionaire inventor with an experimental cure that will “upgrade” his body. The cure - an Artificial Intelligence implant called STEM - gives Grey physical abilities beyond anything experienced and the ability to relentlessly claim vengeance against those who murdered his wife and left him for dead.

The movie has been rated R for "strong violence, grisly images, and language" and is all set to reach theatres on June 1st. Now drop what you're doing and check out the throwback 80's VHS trailer below!

Extra Tidbit: I'd watch a cut of the entire movie done up in this style.
