DAWN OF A NEW BREED OF HEROES

From cult director Nico Mastorakis, the man behind such eclectic offerings as the controversial Island of Death and the Oliver Reed-starring actioner Hired to Kill, comes The Zero Boys – the genre-bending ’80s classic with gruesome sequences that anticipate the torture porn horrors of Hostel and Saw.

For a group of young friends, a weekend of survival games in the wilderness turns into a genuine battle of life and death when one of their number turns up dead. Finding themselves hunted by a bloodthirsty band of maniacs intent on slaughtering them one-by-one, the self-styled “Zero Boys” must now play their war games for real.

Starring Kelli Maroney (Night of the Comet, Chopping Mall) and featuring an early score from the legendary Hans Zimmer (Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy), The Zero Boys mixes action, survival and all-out slasher movie elements in a thrilling horror yarn that falls somewhere between Friday the 13th and Deliverance.

‘This desperate battle for survival makes ‘The Hunger Games’ look like ‘My Dinner With Andre’...as t

Stalwart filmmaker Nico Mastorakis should clearly be respected as a rule-wreckingly righteous, paradigm shifting, exploitation/horror powerhouse, but is referenced all too rarely these days, and yet, his tremendously exciting, endorphin-rushing ‘The Zero Boys’ was a not only an entirely prescient foreshadowing of horror’s increasingly morbid obsession with snuff & torture tropes, but a riotously gung-ho, testosterone-soaked slasher in its own right, one that gruesomely gives the lumbering Jason and his army of sexually degenerated clones a good run for their blood money! Part hellacious ‘Hunter’s Blood’ hicksploitation, part Daniel Petrie JR’s rabble-rousing ‘Toy Soldiers’, Mastorakis’s consistently inventive, hysteria-inducing hybrid of copious celluloid carnage and explosive, boy’s own excitement is a sweetly savage double-barrelled salvo of illicit, late-night fright-packed entertainment all the way from its muscularly vested front to its sweat-soaked, arrow-pierced back! Our sleek-limbed, mustard keen, trigger-happy heroes aren’t couch trippin’ zeros, so when ‘The Zero Boys’ boisterous ‘Commando cosplay’ fatally turns into a desperately real, high stakes, death dealing, Uzi-shredding reality, the relentlessly sadistic terror siege brought upon them by sadistic, shadow-dwelling, cross-bow bearing, skin flaying psycho-killers is soon repelled with equally single-minded force! Maestro Mastoraki’s supremely zesty, zero tolerance ‘Zero Boys’ is one uproariously ballsy, gut-punching, machete-chopping, psycho-survivalist, backwoods bloodbath that grabs you viciously by the throat and just keeps on squeezing’! ‘Trapped in these inhospitable, dismally blackened woods, if the gruesome mantraps don’t kill you, the terrifyingly tooled up, snuff-making psychos will! - ‘This desperate battle for survival makes ‘The Hunger Games’ look like ‘My Dinner With Andre’...as the ‘Zero Boys’ play for keeps!’
