Do comic books turn people into serial killers? The answer is a resounding “yeah, maybe” in this first trailer for Artik. The film follows one heavy-metal looking serial killer who’s obsessed with comics–and looks to use illustrations to immortalize his murders–teaching his son how to get away with their brutal crimes. A stranger named Holton comes across the boy and tries to rescue him from this life–but this long-hair Viking psychopath isn’t going to let that happen without a fight.
This is pure blood, sweat, and rage with metal and fire for good measure. I am very into the pulse-pounding violence this trailer threatens. I mean, did you see that kid just straight headbutt that bug on a tree? You see a kid do that on the playground, and you know he’s no one to mess with. That boy’s got the devil in him.
Also, check out the poster below. It’s very cool.
Artik will hit VOD and Blu-ray on September 10, 2019.
