Trailer: ‘Death Grip’ Involves A Bunch Of Dudes In Robes Beating Each Other Up… And It Looks Awesome!
We don’t see many American martial arts movies come out — frankly Asia has cornered the market on them since the genre has been invented — so I’m impressed that Death Grip (the title already sounds like it fits a classic 1970s kung fu, as does the poster) already looks like a winner. The story doesn’t seem to matter much — it apparently revolves around a coin — but here’s the plot anyway:
Death Grip 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.
Death Grip is written, directed, produced and stars Eric Jacobus (Counter) and also stars martial arts vet Johnny Yong Bosch. It’s set for a May release. Check out the trailer below:
