A lot of great films came out of Sundance this year and BELLFLOWER was one of them. BELLFLOWER, the debut film written and directed by Evan Glodell, was picked up by Oscilloscope Laboratories at the festival and our very own Chase Whale gave it 4/5 in his review. Oscilloscope sent out the new poster for BELLFLOWER today and the film will be showing at the 2011 SXSW festival next week.

BELLFLOWER is about two guys, Woodrow and Aiden who spend all of their free time building MAD MAX inspired flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in preparation for a global apocalypse in which their imaginary gang "Mother Medusa" can emerge on top. But when Woodrow meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love, he and Aiden quickly integrate into a new group of friends, setting off on a journey of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity, and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies.

Sounds awesome, right? It only gets better. The car seen in the poster below, Medusa, was actually built by the director/writer/star of the film, Glodell, and is equipped with two fuel injected exhaust flamethrowers with a 30,000 volt ignition system, smoke screen, a bleach drift-kit, adjustable rear suspension, 3 surveillance cameras (all in which are controlled from the dashboard), a customized apocalypse exhaust system, 6-71 Supercharger, posi rear end, a self-contained oxygen supply for chemical or underwater warfare, a roll cage, stow-able fold-down back seat and occasionally holds a sawed-off shotgun in the trunk in case of emergency.

In case you've never gotten the chance to see an apocalypse-ready car up close, Medussa will be available throughout the 2011 SXSW festival for demonstrations. Check out the new poster for BELLFLOWER after the break.


BELLFLOWER will be in theaters July 22 and showing at SXSW Saturday March 12, Monday March 14 and Thursday March 17.
