I feel like we've heard this one before. CRUSH THE SKULL appears to be a moral Horror tale that will pit thieves vs. a serial in a game of torture and murder. Doesn't it sound just a little like People Under the Stairs? or maybe even more recently Intruders? Breaking Glass Pictures often puts out movies that have plenty of gratuity but not necessarily original ideas. That being said, when we get a juicy one from BGP, it can be a real low budget, independent treat.
What catches my eye about this release is the poster. It has the look/set up of some of the Cannibal Holocaust prints I've seen as of late albeit with bright neon green. I'll give it a shot, and we'll be sure to let you know if it was worth the watch.
Check out the synopsis below and the trailer (and the poster above if your eyes can take it).
