IFC Midnight has slated Trent Haaga’s 68 Kill, which had its world premiere at last month’s SXSW Film Festival, to land in theaters and on VOD August 4th.
We now have a vibrant retro poster to go along with the trailer for the film that begins when a man’s weakness gets him into a world of trouble when he agrees to help his girlfriend steal $68,000.
Our own Ben Larned reviewed the film, calling it “bloody, hilarious Southern Gothic madness.”
Based on the novel by Bryan Smith, “Trailer-dwelling, sewage-pumping Chip (Matthew Gray Gubler) may not lead the most glamorous life, but he’s got one thing going for him: he’s head over heels infatuated with his girlfriend Liza (AnnaLynne McCord). He’s more than willing to overlook her wild streak—the fact that she’s hooking up with their landlord; her rather extreme mood swings —so when she proposes a plot to steal $68,000, he goes along with the plan. But when what was supposed to be a simple heist turns into an off-the-rails, blood-spattered crime spree, Chip learns the hard way just how deranged the love of his life really is. The new film from Troma alum Trent Haaga blends wicked comedy with pure pulp thrills for a no-holds-barred blast of insanity.”
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.
