Residue (2017) – Trailer and Release Date

Will horror movie victims ever learn? You never read a creepy, mysterious book! We’ve seen the repercussions of villainous books in Evil Dead, The Mummy, and The Cabin In The Woods. Now, we’ll witness another in this new supernatural thriller called Residue!

Residue was directed by Rusty Nixon, who previously directed Scribes (2004), Down The Line (2014), and Candiland (2016). Horror fans will see quite a few horror legends, including Costas Mandylor, mostly known for his role as Mark Hoffman in the Saw franchise, and Matt Frewer who’s played in Supernatural, Dawn Of The Dead, and Stephen King’s Desperation.

(Synopsis provided by

Private investigator Luke Harding (James Clayton) reads a book of sinister origins owned by seedy crime lord Mr. Fairweather (Matt Frewer). Unbeknownst to Luke, the book is a much sought-after supernatural artifact, and Fairweather’s greatest rival, the enigmatic Mr. Lamont (William B. Davis), pursues Luke with his henchmen (Costas Mandylor, Michael Matic). While the criminal underworld is desperate to retrieve the book and harness its power for their own dark agendas, its evil begins to take root in Luke’s apartment; putting himself, his daughter (Taylor Hickson), and his secret love (Elysia Rotaru) in a fight for their lives and their eternal souls.

Residue was distributed by XLrater Media, IndustryWorks Studios and Motorcycle Boy Productions. Residue will be available for VOD and ITunes on July 18th! 

About Karli Lawson

I basically grew up watching horror films and spooky things. I watched my first horror film when I was 4 years old. I've wanted to be a writer ever since I've read Stephen King books in middle school. I love writing and talking about my favorite genre. I hope to one day be successful in screenwriting and filmmaking. Everything horror, of course!
