The first trailer has dropped for Carnage Park, an upcoming crime-thriller looking to earn that grit-promising title.
Written and directed by Mickey Keating (Darling), the 1977-set Carnage Park tells of two bank robbers on the run with one hostage (Ashley Bell). Things go from bad to worse when all three of them end up playing a game of cat and mouse with a deranged ex-military sniper (Pat Healy).
The trailer below will let you know very quickly if this is the type of film for you. The tension seems palpable, and you just know that in-your-face violence lurks behind every corner here. Furthermore, we’re digging the sepia texture on display, plus that simple plot could allow for plenty of twists and turns. Yep, we’re in.
Carnage Park will be hitting U.S. screens and VOD on July 1.
Synopsis for Carnage Park:
This pure-pulp thrill ride jumps between past and present as it pieces together the puzzle of a shocking crime. It’s 1978 and a bank robbery gone wrong leaves Vivian (The Last Exorcism’s Ashley Bell) the hostage of two criminals on the run. But things go from bad to off-the-rails berserk when she and her captors wind up on the sun-baked desert outpost of a deranged ex-military sniper (Pat Healy), who ensnares them in his deadly game of cat and mouse. Rising horror auteur Mickey Keating (Pod, Darling) directs this gritty, grisly homage to the glory days of grindhouse cinema.
