Adam Mason has long been one of my favorite independent filmmakers. Mason made me take notice with his film Broken, that was released under the since-defunct Dimension Extreme line of home video releases, and then made me a lifer with what I would argue is his best film, The Devil’s Chair, which was released back in 2007 by SPHE(SONY). Adam also made an experimental film that has yet to see a proper release, titled PIG, in which the first three fourths of the film are captured in one continuous shot. Around the time that film was ready, Adam was hanging out in the discussion boards of various horror websites, offering anyone that wished to see his film PIG a means to do so. I met Adam around that time, and we started talking about his film, among other things, and he turned out to be one of the coolest filmmakers I’d ever had the pleasure of interacting with. I was able to see early cuts of a couple of Mason’s upcoming films, such as the already-released Luster, as well as Junkie, which is finally set to be released on Blu-Ray, DVD, iTunes and all other major digital VOD outlets in North America, and across various VOD platforms in Canada on November 12th, 2013.
I’ve seen Junkie twice now, both times a different cut/master. I’m looking forward to finally seeing the finished product. Below you can find the trailer, as well as the press release from Indiecan Entertainment.
