The latest feature to be directed by special make-up and effects wizard Robert Kurtzman (director of Wishmaster, creator of From Dusk Till Dawn and co-founder of the award winning special effects studio, KNB EFX Group), The Rage, released on DVD (£15.99) by Anchor Bay Entertainment on 16th March 2009, stars Andrew Divoff (Lost; Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull), horror and softcore porn icon Erin Brown (aka Misty Mundae) and genre movie legend Reggie Bannister (Bubba Ho-Tep; Wishmaster; Phantasm) in a superlative and unbelievably gory splatterfest that Fangoria magazine has called 'the year's ultimate party movie'.
Andrew Divoff stars as Dr. Viktor Vasilienko, a once benevolent scientific genius whose greatest medical breakthrough was destroyed by corporate greed. Driven mad by his disillusionment, he has set about secretly creating the ultimate biological weapon a virus designed to make people rage with anger. During the experimental phase of the still-to-be perfected virus, one of Vasilienko's test subjects is transformed into a savage, carnivorous killer and manages to escape from the doctor's remote laboratory into the nearby woods.
After rampaging through the woods, the unfortunate carrier is attacked by a colony of vultures that, in turn, become newly infected flesh-eating carriers of the virus. When a small group of vacationing twenty-somethings stumble across the airborne horror in the woods, they find themselves under siege from the killer birds and are forced to take refuge in the only haven they can find Valienko's secret lab! But their nightmare is only beginning. Valienko and the rest of his mutated test subjects are waiting and they are very, very hungry.
Harking back to the bloody spirit of low-budget B-movie horror classics such as the Phantasm, Re-Animator and The Evil Dead movies, The Rage delivers its entertainment on every level. With its buckets of full-on, in-your-face gore, plenty of stomach-churning shocks and a healthy does of comic moments, Kurtzman's latest is a midnight movie, horror cult classic in the making.
