Eric Jacobus gets a ‘Grip’ in HK…

By Mike Leeder

For his latest film Eric Jacobus mixes Rain Man and Ocean’s 11 for a dramatic supernatural caper movie, Death Grip…

San Francisco-based Eric Jacobus and his team The Stuntpeople, have been delivering Hong Kong flavoured high impact action for several years in such projects as action comedy ContourDogs of Chinatown and various short films and music videos. Jacobus is currently in post production the fast paced Death Grip which tells the story of ex-thief turned lowly caterer Kenny Zemacus, who checks his autistic brother out of a care home where he’s spent the past 15 years since their mother’s death. When Kenny reluctantly brings Mark on a last minute museum catering gig that night, Mark unwittingly entangles them in a dangerous heist involving the museum’s mysterious showpiece — the silver Coin of Judas – and a murderous satanic cult, propelling them into the cult’s demonic world and forcing them to face the depths of their own dark past.

Jacobus wrote, directed and edited the film as well as starring in the movie opposite former Power Ranger Johnny Yong Bosch of Wicked Game and Broken Path/Broken Fist fame. We’ve long admired Jacobus and his teams work, featuring them in Impact various times over the years and it’s great to see the progression they’ve made with each and every project.
