We're suckers for a good horror-comedy, and the The Moleman of Belmont Avenue has the talent and the comedy pedigree to be our possible new favorite. Plus, don't we all have a Mole Man, of some sort, in our basements?
Twitch Film spotted the new trailer for the feature Mole Men, brought to us by a pair of Second City writers and actors, Mike Bradecich and Mike LaFlamboy. It was made on a shoe-string budget, but we think that only adds to the over-all flavor of this horror-comedy.
Here's the official, and very fun, synopsis:
Marion and Jarmon Mugg have never had to work very hard. They've never had much responsibility, and no one has ever put any expectations on them to perform or achieve, well... anything.
But two years ago their mother died, leaving them the brownstone apartment building that has been in the family since its days as a speakeasy during Prohibition. In that short time, their slacker ways have run the building into the ground. The tenants are moving out, no one but them and their friends drinks at the bar on the ground floor, and the building's pets are going missing. If all that isn't enough to make them sit up and take notice, there's also a good chance that a monster is living in the basement.
"The Mole Man of Belmont Avenue" is a horror/ comedy that explores what happens when a terrible situation is dropped into the laps of the two people least equipped to deal with it. The Brothers Mugg can either step up to the plate and finally grow up, or they can wait and clean up the mess as a mysterious creature eats every living thing in the building, one by one.
