Matthew Currie Holmes’ directorial debut Buckout Road is already garnering attention winning its first award at Hot Springs Horror Film Festival for Best Thriller Feature Film. Now, the acclaimed supernatural thriller has dropped its first trailer and We are Indie Horror has it here for you (watch below). The film continues to build momentum with recent nominations for Best Picture and Best Director at the World Music and Independent Film Festival.
Here is the official synopsis for the film:
“Buckout Road might be known as the most haunted road in New York State, but nobody really believed it… until now. A college class project on modern mythology turns deadly when a trio of students discovers a series of horrific urban legends surrounding Buckout Road may actually be true. The deeper they dig into the road’s dark, mysterious history, the more dangerous their quest becomes. From witches burning at the stake, to backwoods albino killers, to a modern, unstoppable stalker, writer/director and horror-film aficionado Matthew Currie Holmes leaves no genre unexploited in his loving throwback to late-80’s midnight movies.”
Watch the terrifying trailer below as it features a few “holy shit!” moments, and trust me, that is a great sign for the upcoming film. Buckout Road promises to be terrifying, exuding a brooding and dark atmosphere that pervades the visceral and compelling imagery of Holmes’ debut film. Furthermore, one can only hope that this film is as bloody as the trailer is building it up to be, but either way, I think horror fans will be pleased with the trailer and pique their interest for this upcoming feature film.
The film’s cast includes: Evan Ross (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Lee Daniels’ Star), Henry Czerny (Mission: Impossible, Quantico), Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Wynona Earp, Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon I-IV) and Colm Feore (House of Cards, Thor).
