Bellflower (review) was one of my favorite films of 2011, and now Coatwolf (the team behind that film) are coming back at us with the wonderfully titled Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins. It is directed by Jonathan Keevil, who produced and scored Bellflower, and stars Tyler Dawson and Evan Glodell, and it looks bad-ass. Styled on the action films and side-scrolling videogames of the 80s, think Double Dragon and Streets of Rage, the production needs a little help in order to finish the film. Now, I know the world is inundated with crowd-funding pages for this, that and the other, but this is a film that I need to see, and am convinced it could be something special, hence I am donating. Anyway, the fundraiser, through Indiegogo, has been set up to help finance the films many actin scenes. For more details on this, as well as the full synopsis and promo trailer, keep reading after the break. Let's get ready to throw down, motherfuckers!
A turf war has been raging in Oldtown for generations. On one side, The Syndicate – an evil gang of crank-head misfits, who have been set on muscling the San Diego family out of the parcel of land they own in the center of town. On the other side, the San Diego family: Tony and Johnny - twin brothers, and their sister Salsa are the last of a bloodline that stretches back for generations. Their mother, father and brothers were all brutally murdered in violent clashes with The Syndicate over the years. With their neighborhood becoming increasingly fearful, The Syndicate puts into action another evil advance on their family’s fading legacy by kidnapping Salsa - all hell breaks loose. The twins and their best friend Chuck Hank must decide whether to hand over the deed to their family's land in order to save their sister or fight, the final fight!
