Here is a very cool and interesting trailer to a sci-fi dark comedy called Hellacious Acres : The Case of John Glass, which comes from director Pat Tremblay. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world that was brought about by an alien invasion, and it follows a character named John Glass who is sent on a mission to collect codes from remote locations in the country. This little mission turns into quite an adventure.
With a self-financed total budget of less than 9000 dollars, Pat Tremblay has constructed an anti-epic film about the unsung casualties of war. The story relies on exposing, with a down to earth eye, simple basic science-fiction concepts & situations, while also filtering them through a twisted slap of dark & deadpan humor...
Here's the synopsis for the film:
John Glass wakes up in a desolate barn from a long cryogenic slumber, to be informed that not only has the planet been devastated by a third world war, but also reduced to little habitability by a subsequent alien invasion. He learns that in order to help reestablish a livable atmosphere for what's left of humanity, he'll have to go on a solitary mission to retrieve important codes dispersed throughout remote locations. Soon enough he'll encounter more than he "bargained" for: aliens, crazy survivors, inadequate equipment, LOTS of walking and a pretty unhealthy dose of bad luck...
I have no idea if this film will ever get a theatrical release, but I really like the concept and the humor. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
