A slacker comedy with a Nintendo Power Glove modified with Freddy Krueger’s finger knives? Sure! Granted, the previous sentence sounds like a Buzzfeed editor’s wet dream, but Buzzard looks genuinely punk in its approach and the treadmill scene made me laugh, so there.
From the press release:
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.
Oscilloscope Laboratories will release Joel Potrykus’ BUZZARD in theaters and digitally on March 6, 2015. Written and directed by Potrykus, the film stars Joshua Burge and was produced by Michael Saunders and Ashley Young. Associate Producers are Kevin Clancy and Tim Saunders.
