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):

Vivica A. Fox Explodes Onto the Screen in a New Action Thriller, JUNKYARD DOG

Bass Entertainment Pictures Releases the Gripping Action Thriller, JUNKYARD DOG, on May 15, 2012

LOS ANGELES, May 10, 2012 - Bass Entertainment Pictures' JUNKYARD DOG, a home entertainment release, starring Vivica A. Fox, Brad Dourif, Innis Casey, John Kapelos and newcomer Galadriel Stineman, written and directed by Kim Bass and produced by Deanna Shapiro of Beautiful Lie Pictures.

The R-Rated horror/thriller will be released on May 15, 2012 (next week Tuesday) on all home entertainment platforms including DVD, VOD, iTunes, etc. So you've got some options if you're curious after seeing the below trailer.

Bass Entertainment Pictures, LLC develops and produces feature films for theatrical, DVD, television and Internet release. For more information visit: www.bassentertainmentpictures.com .

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.
