A quiet couple. An Isolated farmhouse. A pair of desperate fugitives. Everything else breaks under pressure. American Gothic is a new horror / thriller from writer / director Stuart Connelly. (This is a new film, not a remake. It is not to be confused with the recent Shout! Factory release). Strike Media sends word the film is coming soon to video on demand.
Check out the trailer below, then read on for all the details!
American Gothic Synopsis
When the catastrophic crash of a prisoner transport van miraculously spares the lives of Nick and Guy – two convicts who are chained together at the ankle – their unplanned escape leads them to an off-the-beaten-path farmhouse. But things aren’t exactly what they seem on that desolate farm, and what starts as a simple attempt to hide out leads to a tense, unintended hostage situation — one fraught with unforeseen traps, nightmarish secrets, and diabolical consequences.
American Gothic stars Ned Luke, Rochelle Bostrom, Slate Holmgren, and Mark Barthmaier. Barthmaier won the “Best Actor, Feature Horror” award at the Atlantic City Cinefest.
Here’s a look at the official poster artwork!
Wow, that trailer looks crazy! What kind of batshit, hillbilly insanity is going on there? It definitely has a Saw / Hostel / Hills Have Eyes vibe to it. I like it!
