$quid Pictorial Update

We’ve been following the Brisbane-made romstercom (romantic monster comedy) for some time on Undead Brainspasm (read the articles here). Well, there have been some updates since the last, with the film now due to be released in “early 2010”. In addition, the creators are referring to it as a “Monster Comedy” now, and a new poster has appeared, along with more stills from the film. So I decided to post the update here. Some of the images in the gallery are visible in previous articles — but I couldn’t be bothered sorting through them and anyway, it’s good to have them in one place, right? At any rate $quid is looking like it will be a highlight of next year’s line-up.
