The Mo Brothers latest twisted tale of violence, Killers, had an extremely limited cinema release here in the UK last month. Don’t worry if you missed it, because the brutal film is due to arrive on DVD and Blu-ray on 1st September.

The celebrate the event, Fetch Publicity have released a new UK trailer. Although running at just thirty seconds, with its pumping soundtrack and constant vicious violence, the teaser trailer is incredibly effective, and should delight fans of extreme cinema.

If you are unfamiliar with Timo Tjahjanto and Kim Stamboel’s (AKA The Mo Brothers) work, then I highly recommend checking out Macabre, and also the awesome VHS2 segment Safe Haven, which was directed by one half of the Brothers, Timo Tjahjanto and The Raid’s Gareth Evans.

The producers of The Raid are co-producing Killers, along with Nightmare detective producer Takuji Ushiyama. Ray Sahetapy, who played the main villain in The Raid, stars in Killers, which is written and directed by The Mo Brothers (Macabre).

Synopsis:

Mr. Nomura is an eerily handsome, sharply dressed, sociopathic serial killer who preys on the women of Tokyo. In Jakarta, a world-weary journalist named Bayu finds himself unexpectedly falling into vigilantism after brutally killing two sadistic robbers. When each posts videos of their violent sprees online, the pair find one another on the Internet and begin a toxic and competitive duel. While Bayu clings to the hope that he can resume a normal life, Nomura continues to spill blood without remorse. Killing, advises Nomura, is something everyone ought to consider.

The film had its world premiere at Sundance this month, and the film festival provided a good description of the film:

Timo Tjahjanto, codirector of the V/H/S/2 segment “Safe Haven,” returns to Park City at Midnight, collaborating with longtime filmmaking partner Kimo Stromboel on their bleak and blood-soaked second feature as creative team The Mo Brothers. Killers uses energetic camerawork and a wildly varied musical score to vividly capture brutality in ways both bone-rattlingly frenetic and serenely transfixing, while always keeping audience members aware of their complicity with the characters’ own bloodlust.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
