Introducing: “Night of the Templar”
Posted: March 4, 2014 in Movies
When I was a kid in the 1970s, I used to love watching the Saturday morning horror movies on the UHF stations out of Philadelphia. “Creature Double Feature” on Channel 48 was my favorite.
They were the types of movies made outside the Hollywood studio system, by scrappy film-makers of the Roger Corman variety. What I really liked about them was the fact that they didn’t speak the vocabulary of the standard Hollywood film. These were filmmakers who made up their own rules. Start in on one of these movies, and you never quite knew where you were going to end up.
So the maker of this movie, “Night of the Templar,” contacted me and asked if I’d mention it on my blog. I watched the trailer on Youtube, and … sold! No, I haven’t seen it yet, but I plan to. That trailer’s got the delightfully off-the-wall vibe that used to keep me planted in front of the TV set on many a Saturday afternoon. And hey, it’s got David Carradine. Have I mentioned “sold?”
Here’s the trailer:
And here’s the info:
“Here tells a Tale of Passion, Loyalty, Deceit, Betrayal … and Revenge!”
After allowing them ten lifetimes of excess, the beloved, fallen medieval Templar Knight, Lord Morris McGuirk Gregoire of Reading, returns to modern day to exact a blood thirst vengeance on those who betrayed him long ago.
Night of the Templar, *independently* written, produced and directed by Paul Sampson, is a unique and savory blend of murder, mystery, horror, drama, dark humor, intrigue, action and suspense all woven together in a tale that will keep you both engaged and guessing until the very end. No other indie film of its kind exists. And with the right mix of eye candy for both men and women, Night of the Templar is the perfect “date night” flick.
A star-packed cast including Paul Sampson, Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead fame, Udo Kier, Billy Drago, and the final performance of legendary great David Carradine, this movie can’t help but be destined for ‘Cult Classic’ status!
