Cranked Up Films has acquired the rights to the new dark comedy directed by Quinn Armstrong (What You Wish For) called Survival Skills. The film stars Stacy Keach (Nebraska), Vayu O’Donnell (Cell), Spence Garrett (21), Ericka Kreutz (Dead to Me TV series), and Tyra Colar (Alex, Inc. TV series). It will be available December 4, 2020.
Survival Skills is a biting police training video from the 1980s expertly narrated (Keach) like so many of the educational videos we remember fondly from a most radical decade. Lost for years and only now recovered, we meet Jim (O’Donnell), the perfect policeman in a perfect relationship in a perfect community, who gets in over his head when he tries to resolve a domestic violence case. Before long, the ugly underbelly of the ‘Good Guys in Blue’ begins to expose itself and Jim decides to take matters into his own hands.
