Horror at Sundance: "The Violent Kind"

The poster for "The Violent Kind" proclaims that it is "A New Film by the Butcher Brothers." I couldn't remember if the Butcher Brothers were a tag team wrestling duo or a late 90s electronica production team but it turns out they're the guys who made "The Hamiltons" from the first After Dark Horrorfest, as well as the "April Fool's Day" remake. "The Violent Kind" seems to defy synopsis and has something to do with possession, supernatural evil and a 1950s rockabilly motorcycle gang. It also stars the notoriously picky Tiffany Shepis, who as evidenced by her recent turns in "Zombies! Zombies! Zombies!" and "Chainsaw Cheerleaders", won't appear in just any old horror movie. There are three teaser trailers, none of which tell us much about the movie except that we can expect it to be both weird and violent.
