Based on the award winning horror novel by Gregory Lamberson. In the village of Red Hill, high school student Eric Carter (Byron Brown II) suspects his murdered best friend Johnny Grissom (Anthony De La Torre) has returned from the grave to exact revenge upon his enemies.
Back in March, not much information was available on the Johnny Gruesome production. At the time revealed were the synopsis, cast, and the poster art. A teaser or trailer was unavailable but that was in the works.
For readers unfamiliar with Johnny Gruesome here’s some backstory. Gregory Lamberson wrote the concept which originally released in 2008 as a novel. The book has since won many awards, including the Benjamin Franklin Award Finalist for Best Cover Design.
Ken Artuz, Founder, and Editor for DecayMag wrote an article on the poster art. The article compared the movie poster with the original novel cover art. The difference was extreme. It is Lamberson’s creative way of making the movie and titular character modern.
