Rock legend Henry Rollins stars in indie horror comedy, He Never Died, and he plays a Cannibal in the film.
Playing as part of the SXSW Film Festival, the first clip has been released on-line and see’s Rollins not allowing two thugs to push him around. The clip is violent, darkly funny and slightly unsettling. Check it out below.
He Never Died is written and directed by Jason Krawczyk, and Rollins leads the cast which also includes Boo Boo Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Kate Greenhouse (The Dark Hours), Jordan Todosey (“Degrassi: The Next Generation”), and Steven Ogg.
He Never Died follows Jack in his battle with cannibalism and mental sobriety. An exceptionally prolonged life has brought depression and detachment. Jack buys stolen blood from a hospital intern, plays bingo, sleeps fourteen hours a day, watches television six hours a day, and lives alone. This is his life – he has shelled himself away from social interactions.
The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tightrope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility and self-worth. As it turns out, there are very few reasons to live when you can’t die.
