Relaxer trailer: It's the end of the world (as we don't know it)
Joel Potrykus' Relaxer has been kicking around the festival circuit since SXSW last year and has largely picked up positive reviews along the way. Anyone who has seen his previous work, like Buzzard or The Alchemist Cookbook, will know Potrykus makes films unlike anyone else. His gonzo filmmaking style is often in-your-face, inventive, unapologetic and most of all, very funny. Adina Howard even gets a look in this time. Take a look at the trailer for Relaxer above to see what you think.
Doom and gloom are on the way. The Y2K apocalypse can’t be stopped. Abbie’s older brother issues him the ultimate challenge before it goes down: beat the infamous level 256 in Pac-Man and no getting up from the couch until he does so. Abbie’s survival story begins here; inside a rotting living room with no food or water, and a revolving door of numb-nut friends and acquaintances. It’s The Exterminating Angel by way of Slacker.
Potrykus has written the script as usual, with the cast featuring Joshua Burge, David Dastmalchian, Andre Hyland, Adina Howard and Amari Cheatom.
Relaxer opens in select US theatres on the March 22nd - however, we're not sure if it'll ever get a release in the UK.
