Lakeshore Records: "Brawl In Cell Block 99" music by S. Craig Zahler


S. Craig Zahler (BONE TOMAHAWK) returns with his sophomore feature, BRAWL IN CELL BLOCK 99. An exhilarating exercise in analog violence, BRAWL IN CELL BLOCK 99 follows the brutal exploits of a former boxer who finds himself incarcerated after a drug deal goes wrong. Trapped in a maximum security facility, he must fight to stay alive and to protect those he loves. The film stars Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter, Tom Guiry, and Don Johnson

Florida-born New Yorker S. Craig Zahler worked for many years as a cinematographer and a catering chef, while playing heavy metal and creating strange theater pieces.  His debut western novel, A Congregation of Jackals, was nominated for both the Peacemaker and the Spur awards, and his western screenplay, THE BRIGANDS OF RATTLEBORGE, garnered him a three-picture deal at Warner Brothers and topped the prestigious Black List.  In 2011, a horror movie that he wrote in college, ASYLUM BLACKOUT (aka The Incident), was made and picked up by IFC Films after a couple of people fainted at its Toronto premiere.

As drummer, lyricist, and co-songwriter, Zahler makes music with his doomy epic metal band Realmbuilder, which is signed to I Hate Records (Sweden).  This followed his foray in black metal with the project Charnel Valley (whose two albums were released by Paragon Records). Zahler’s uncommonly nasty horror western novel Wraiths of the Broken Land came out 2013.  The following year saw the release of his transhuman science fiction novel Corpus Chrome, Inc., the publication by St. Martin’s Press of his crime novel, Mean Business on North Ganson Street, and the twenty-one day shoot of his directorial debut, BONE TOMAHAWK.
