Gregory Lamberson is just about ready to unleash Slime City Massacre on the unsuspecting world. The film has been quite a while in the making, as it’s the followup to 1988’s Slime City. (DVD review!) They’ve just unveiled the poster for the sequel- enjoy!
Artist Stephan Romano (behind the infamous Black Devil Doll Poster) worked on this and definitely captured the retro feel they’re going for with the film.
The story is set in the ruins of midtown Manhattan seven years after a dirty bomb blows up in the financial district. The neighborhood (now known as Slime City) is evacuated, but that doesn’t stop the homeless from scavenging the area. Four squatters looking for food inside a soup kitchen discover a supply of wine and yogurt, which they immediately consume and are transformed into slime creatures. Worse than that, they’re possessed by the spirits of those who died in the previous film!
The original still holds up as a really fun film, making for a great “Melting NYC” double-feature with the classic Street Trash. Really can’t wait to see what they’ve done this time… and how much more disgusting they could possibly make it.
Slime City vets Robert C. Sabin, Mary Bogle, T.J. Merrick, and Dick Biel. Brooke Lewis and Tommy Sweeney all return to their roles, and Debbie Rochon (Tromeo and Juliet) and Lee Perkins (KatieBird *Certifiable Crazy Person) appear as well.
The film will premiere at the Beloit International Film Festival and start making the festival rounds starting next February. For more on the film and the rest of the awesome Mr. Lamberson’s work check out his official site.
