James Bryan, USA, 1987, AGFA + Bleeding Skull, Exploitation

The legendary lost project from exploitation titans Renee Harmon (ESCAPE FROM THE INSANE ASYLUM) and James Bryan (BOOGIEVISION, SEX ALIENS). Compiled from over a decade of footage, this patchwork brain-crusher makes the recycled lunacy of SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 2 seem logical by comparison. Anne Wellington (Harmon), a psychic police officer, is trying to find her sister’s killer while eluding axe murderers, occultists, the FBI, and an incriminating cassette tape.

If the plot sounds semi-lucid, don’t worry — the execution bears no resemblance to a reality that scientists, therapists, or archeologists are aware of. Actors age ten years between scenes. Brawls begin in apartments, but end in warehouses. A stuffed animal appears on the chest of a corpse for no good reason. Ambitious, nightmarish, and impossible to comprehend, RUN COYOTE RUN rallies for both determination and madness, but never chooses sides. In the words of the movie’s climax: “This is like the day of last judgement.”

Recently discovered in the trunk of a used car, RUN COYOTE RUN was completed in 1987 by director James Bryan, but never officially released until now!
