Kalamity finds Nick Stahl as Billy, a man who has recently broken up with his long-term girlfriend and returns to his home town to find that all is not quite right with his best friend Stanley (played by Jonathan Jackson).

A trailer has been released, which although in places makes the film look like a bit of a by-the-numbers thriller, has enough intriguing elements to make us believe this might have somethingĀ  a bit different.

Writer/Director James M Hausler previously wrote and directed Wild Seven and Trip Out, neither of which I have heard of, much less seen so I cannot really comment on his form. Having said that, the cast here is of a generally high calibre and although this one has sat resolutely below the radar, it might yet prove to be a winner.

Kalamity is due in US cinemas on 22nd October. No word yet on a UK release. You can follow this link to the new trailer and there is a trailer with some different elements embedded below, courtesy of You Tube.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
