A project we profiled in 2009 is finally getting a release.
As a recap… the story goes… inspired by actual events, Junkyard Dog tells the terror-filled tale of Audra Buckman, a nineteen year-old college co-ed, trapped in a month-long nightmare, struggling to stay alive and uneaten, while being held captive, left half-starved and repeatedly savaged by JYD, an oddly charismatic, vicious man-eating monster. Audra's only hope of escape from this hell – and the mouth of a madman – is Samantha Deatherage (Fox), a tough FBI agent who is sent on a solo assignment to search for the missing girl.
Fast-forward to today, and this showed up in my mailbox (a summary):

I wonder if Junkyard Dog has any lines about eating a man's liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti :)
But I'll give this a look when it comes out. Vivica Fox just continues to work, and I gotta tip my hat off to her, regardless of what we think of the films. She's currently shooting the Nollywood/Bollywood project Dr Bello with Isaiah Washington, and Jimmy Jean-Louis amongst others.
