Henry Rollins is an actor, musician, author, journalist, radio host, world traveler, publisher and a whole lot more — but Los Angeles folks of a certain age might remember him best at the ’80s frontman for punk legends Black Flag. Regardless, it’s unlikely anyone has seen him like this: with a hunger for human flesh. Welcome to He Never Died, writer-director Jason Krawczyk’s film about Jack (Rollins), an outcast and recluse with a violent past who battles his eternal struggle with cannibalism. Basically, he tries to nosh on as few people as possible. And apparently there are very few reasons to live when you can’t die. Steven Ogg, Kate Greenhouse, BooBoo Stewart, Jordan Todosey also star in the film, which was produced by Zach Hagen. XYZ Films is handling domestic sales, and 108 Media has international.
He Never Died will premiere March 17 as a midnighter at SXSW in Austin. Earlier that afternoon, its star will be the featured attraction at A Conversation With Henry Rollins, set for 12:30 PM at the Austin Convention Center. He’ll talk about the movie and his unique career. Meanwhile, see above for a little taste — heh — of He Never Died. Fava beans and Chianti, anyone?
