We recently gave you a peek at Troma's new "clean" (sort of) trailer for their retro-grindhouse flick Fathers Day, and now they've put together a slightly more subdued preview in the form of a moody music video for Dan Bern's "Never Bin Born At All" – a gritty folk tune that fits in perfectly with the movie's ultra-sleazy redneck horror vibe.
