IFC Midnight got its hands on The Incident, and that’s a very good sign indeed. But even better, we also know when this one will be hitting shelves near us, and that’s a significant plus in its own right.
The Incident follows a group of guys in a rock band who, while working toward their big break, find themselves working in the kitchen at a maximum security insane asylum. But what the Arkham kitchen crew doesn’t know, as they arrive for work one day, that it’s about to be a big night for them indeed. A sudden storm takes out the security system, and in turn, lets the inmates loose. Help is on the way, not surprisingly, but will it manage to get there before the lunatics can vent their mad rage on those who work there?
Featuring Anna Skellern as one of the film’s main terror hotties, this one should be something to see indeed. If anyone else sees a few parallels between this and a good old fashioned Batman story, well, you’re not alone. And we’ll get to find out just how much like a Batman story this turns out to be when it hits a limited theatrical release May 4th, with a video on demand release likely a month beforehand.
