Many months back we posted some news that Police Acadamy funny man Steve Guttenberg was going to star in a horror movie entitled Cornered. Well, it's time to share the release date now, it looks like Phase 4 Films will release this horror flick on DVD June 1st. Don't count good ol' Guttenberg out just yet, we all know him as a funny man but this film looks good!
Cornered is directed by Daniel Maze and also stars James Duval, Peter Story, Elizabeth Nicole, Eduardo Antonio Garcia, Ellia English, David Basila, and David Jean Thomas.
A serial killer with a morbid voyeur fetish is targeting and terrorizing convenient stores in the city of Los Angeles. He tortures and executes his victims in a ghoulishly artistic way, then steals the surveillance tapes as his bizarre personal trophies.
With the city paralyzed in fear, deliveryman, Morty (Steve Guttenberg), shares his concerns about the recent killings with a group of assorted friends at an isolated downtown liquor store. In a light hearted conversation each member of the group explains, in imaginative ways, how they would kill the psychopath if they ever meet him.
Convinced the store is safe, the friends, including Jimmy (James Duval), lock themselves in and settle down for a night of poker.
As the night progresses, drunken fun quickly turns into heinous murder as the friends begin to disappear one by one. The despair thickens once the group discovers they are being hunted by the killer, who is executing each victim in the manner they described. When the killer discovers the butcher’s tools in the basement, he puts them to demonic use, and the harmless game of cards becomes a terrorizing game of survival.
