SXSW First Look: Henry Rollins Is a Cannibal in 'He Never Died' (Exclusive Poster)

Alternate Ending Studios President and CEO Jason Krawczyk writes and directs this gritty SXSW Midnighters entry starring punk icon and raconteur Henry Rollins as a cannibal with a conscience. Produced by Zach Hagen and co-starring Steven Ogg, Kate Greenhouse, BooBoo Stewart and Jordan Todosey, “He Never Died” world-premieres at the festival on Tuesday, March 17. Here’s the official synopsis, along with a clip:

“Jack’s in a rut. Depression and severe anti-social behavior has whittled down his existence to sleeping and watching television. Seeing the human race as little more than meat with a pulse, Jack has no interest to bond with anyone. There’s little purpose for him to make friends with someone he’d eventually eat or outlive by more than a millennia. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility.”
