IFC Midnight has acquired North American rights to Trent Haaga’s 68 Kill, which had its world premiere at last month’s SXSW Film Festival. Our own Ben Larned reviewed the film, calling it “bloody, hilarious Southern Gothic madness.” Expect a limited theatrical release to go along with VOD later in 2017.
Based on the novel by Bryan Smith, “Chip’s problem is that he can’t say no to beautiful women. This weakness gets him into a world of trouble when he agrees to help his girlfriend steal $68,000.”
Starring are Matthew Gray Gubler, Annalynne McCord, Alisha Boe, Sheila Vand, Sam Eidson, Lucy Faust, Eric Podner, Peter James, Hallie Grace Bradley, and James Moses Black.
Haaga previously directed Chop, and wrote Deadgirl, as well as the genre festival hit Cheap Thrills.
