The Watchmen is one of the finest graphic novels ever written. They are a complete masterpiece. The follow up books that lead to HBO’s The Watchmen series were masterful in their won right in a way that almost over took the original content. Now, genius of our time, Alan Moore has a new film on the way called, The Show. One look at this teaser and you will be on board with the intensely bizarre neon lit world that awaits.
The synopsis for The Show goes like this:
Fletcher Dennis (Burke), a man of many talents, passports and identities, arrives in Northampton – a strange and haunted town in the heart of England as dangerous as he is. On a mission to locate a stolen artifact for his menacing client, Fletcher finds himself entangled in a twilight world populated with vampires, sleeping beauties, Voodoo gangsters, noir private eyes, and masked avengers. He quickly sinks into a bizarre and delirious black hole, that is hidden just beneath the surface of this seemingly quiet town. Soon enough Fletcher discovers that dreams and reality have been blurred and there might no longer be a real world to go back to…Welcome to The Show.
The Mitch Jenkins directed The Show is entirely one strange flick. It’s filled with Moore’s stranger side, and is one of those films that begs to be seen a few times.
The special features for The Show’s upcoming blu-ray includes a trailer, “Show Pieces original short films” and “Welcome to The Show featurette,” which includes exclusive interviews with Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins.
The Show comes to blu-ray beginning Nov. 23 and on digital and On Demand beginning Oct. 5.
