The Wretched is an original fusion
of gothic western and classic horror—A
Fistful of Dollars meets Dawn of the
Dead. In it, a talented young bounty
hunter named Twenty-One, encounters
a new, other-worldly breed of hunter,
Rellik. Rellik is a bounty hunter
of zombies. He introduces his apprentice,
Twenty-One, to a world where Zombie
outlaws roam the earth, avoiding capture
and incarceration in the prisoner
catacombs for the Undead, located
beneath an ancient Monastery.
The Wretched begins as a classic tale
of Master and Apprentice, with slices
of black humor reminiscent of "J"
and "K" in Men In Black.
The humor turns into horror, however,
as a wagon train of misguided travelers
stumble upon the Monastery and unwittingly
release the Undead locked within.
When Rellik and Twenty-One return
from the boy's first demonic bounty-hunt,
they find themselves facing a jail-break
like no other.
Leading the cast of this western horror
flick is Chow Yun-Fat, who became
an international martial arts sensation
after his performance in the critically-acclaimed,
“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.”
He has also starred in movies like
“Bullet Proof Monk,” “Anna
and The King,” “The Corrupter,”
and “The Replacement Killers.”
Chow Yun-Fat will attract action and
martial arts fans as well as international
audiences who are seeking a scary,
action-packed thrill ride through
a zombie-infested Old West.
With The Wretched, we have
the intersection of two of the most
popular genres in film: horror and
western. Within the horror genre,
zombie movies, in particular, have
experienced a resurgence in recent
years with movies like “Shaun
of the Dead,” “Dawn of
the Dead,” and “28 Days
Later.” For this reason, we
believe that The Wretched will be
a box office hit. Cick here
to view a list of films in the horror
and western genres that reflect the
box office success awaiting The Wretched.
