Uwe Boll takes head for Seed
Yes, it looks like Uwe Boll has finally learnt something from his movies to date and is finally going to deliver a movie that is not based on a videogame. Seed is an original horror currently in pre-production.
Okay, so maybe he's learnt nothing, but at least he's trying something different. There are two names attached already, Will Sanderson as the lead, who has appeared in Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, and is also set to appear in Postal, so a big Boll favourite there. Then there's Martina Ittenbach, a German actress of no big fame as yet.
June 12, 2006 – Vancouver, BC – US Federal law: If you have been convicted to death by the electric chair & survive three jolts of 15,000 volts each for 15 seconds, you get to go free.
Sam Seed, an insane mass murderer, is scheduled for execution at the hands of Warden Wright. Before the executioner throws the switch, Wright steps in front of Seed, “Do you have any last words?” Seed, “ I’ll see you again.”
After three attempts to electrocute, complete with boiling blood that steeps from his eyes, he’s still alive. The executioner, Wright & the doctor collectively agree, that the breathing Seed be pronounced dead. He is bound and buried alive. After biting & clawing his way to the surface, Seed, the blood soaked, enraged madman, is now bent on vengeance.
The reign of violence that follows will redefine the boundaries of extreme gore, physical & mental torture explored through cinema.
Based on a true story. Seattle 1972.
Actually, you know what, that does sound like a cool story, and those two last lines do capture the imagination, based on a true story? Redefine the boundaries of extreme gore and torture? Wooo...perhaps we might see something original and strong coming from Boll. What do you think? Could this be a big movie for him?
