Sex. Murder. Revenge.
Part black comedy, part slasher, the action-packed film Rondo is set for an early 2019 release.
Luke Sorge stars as Paul, a troubled young veteran, is told by a psychiatrist that sex is the solution to his dependency and drinking problems. But things turn out otherwise as Paul and his sister are sucked into a criminal underworld where sex and murder are daily specials and revenge is served piping hot.
G.C. Clark, Kendrick “Jazz” Copeland, Reggie De Morton, Ashley Gagnon, and Grant Benjamin Leibowitz co-star in the film from Drew Barnhardt.
Artsploitation’s Murray says, “The moment the ominous voice-over begins in Rondo, I was taken away to my youthful times at 42nd Street grindhouses, where great exploitation films taught me all there is to know about movies. Director Drew Barnhardt pays homage to these films while injecting his own dark modern touches. Intelligent, craftily stylized and wildly entertaining, Rondo is a film that screams, “Artsploitation.”
Barnhardt of Bridge comments, “Drew Barnhardt is an extraordinary talent and we’re thrilled to have partnered with Artsploitation who will know just how to cultivate an audience for his unique vision.”
Artsploitation Films snagged the US and Canadian rights to the film during AFM. The deal was negotiated by Bill Straus of Bridge Independent and Ray Murray of Artsploitation Films.
Rondo is currently making its rounds at festivals and will arrive on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD in early 2019.
