This April IFC Midnight will introduce to audiences to Lowlife, hot off its festival tour that included Fantasia, Frightfest, and Cinepocalypse. The new trailer is here and it has a serious Tarantino vibe.
“What happens when you throw together a fallen Mexican wrestler with serious rage issues, a just-out-of-prison ex-con with a regrettable face tattoo, and a recovering junkie motel owner in search of a kidney?”
“Set amidst the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, Lowlife zigzags back and forth in time as it charts how fate—and a ruthless crime boss—connects three down-and-out reprobates mixed up in an organ harvesting scheme that goes from bad to worse to off-the-rails insane. Careening from savagely funny to just plain savage to unexpectedly heartfelt, this audacious thriller serves up nonstop adrenaline alongside hard-hitting commentary about the state of contemporary America.”
In our interview, actress Nicki Micheaux described her character Crystal as, “a woman who has made a lot of bad choices in her life. When she was on drugs back in her youth she sold her child. Now as an adult she’s trying to rectify all her bad choices. Oh my god, she’s so dark and twisted. She’s a woman on edge trying to pull her life back together.”
Santana Dempsey, Ricardo Adam Zarate, and Jon Oswald co-star. Lowlife, the feature film debut for director Ryan Prows, arrives on VOD and digital platforms on April 6, 2018, from IFC Midnight.
