Buzzard Trailer: A Sardonic Horror Fan Gets By



Demons shirt. Dream Warriors poster. Various one sheets for Return of the Living Dead (a French one!), Leviathan and The Wicker Man. Buzzard may not be a horror film, but it seems to me it’s worth highlighting. 

An indie comedy, Buzzard won acclaim out of festivals like SXSW and New Directors/New Films for its unapologetic aesthetic, one that—possibly like The Comedy—is sort of consistently asking you to be fed up. That’s the sort of thing I can’t wait for. And though it’s clearly not our side of genre, I think films like this, which depict someone on our side of counterculture, or wayward, or caustic, are ones to look out for.

Written and directed by Joel Potrykus, Buzzard is officially described as follows: Marty is a caustic, small-time con artist drifting from one scam to the next.  When his latest ruse goes awry, mounting paranoia forces him from his lousy small town temp job to the desolate streets of Detroit with nothing more than a pocket full of bogus checks, a dangerously altered Nintendo® Power Glove, and a bad temper.  Albert Camus meets Freddy Krueger in BUZZARD, a hellish and hilarious riff on the struggles of the American working class.
