Pedro Pascal stars in horror-comedy Bloodsucking Bastards
Game of Thrones fans may have been disappointed in the brevity of Pedro Pascal’s stint as the smooth Oberyn Martell. But the Chile-born actor is hitting the big screen—and home screen—by summer’s end.
Scream Factory Films—a branch of Shout! Factory—announced Wednesday that Bloodsucking Bastards will receive a limited U.S. theatrical release and video on-demand run starting Sept. 4.
The horror comedy, directed by Brian James O’Connell and written by Ryan Mitts and comedy group Dr. God, centers on a bottom-of-the-food-chain employee in Evan (Fran Kranz, Cabin in the Woods) and his coworkers trying to survive an unfulfilling job. It doesn’t help when Max (Pascal), a college rival with a dark side, is hired as sales manager and works everyone to death.
The film also stars Emma Fitzpatrick (Significant Mother), Yvette Yates (Inherent Vice), Joel Murray (Mad Men), and Joey Kern (Cabin Fever). It made its debut at last January’s Slamdance Film Festival. Watch the trailer above.
