‘Jackals’ Capture Stephen Dorff in This First Clip

Blade‘s Stephen Dorff, who is also battling Leatherface this October, is starring in Jackals, a new slasher that looks like the perfect holdover until The Strangers sequel arrives next year.

Saw VI and Saw 3D: The Final Chapter director Kevin Greutert helms the ’80s-set psychological thriller that centers on an estranged family who hires a cult de-programmer (Dorff) to get back their teenage son from a murderous cult, only to find themselves under siege when the cultists surround their cabin, demanding the boy back.

Shout! Factory will release the film in limited theaters and On Demand on September 1st.

Johnathon Schaech (Day of the Dead, Prom Night, Laid to Rest), Deborah Kara Unger (Silent Hill), Ben Sullivan, Chelsea Ricketts and Nick Roux are also on board to star. Jared Rivet penned the script.

    I saw this movie last Friday night (08/11/17) at the Popcorn Frights Film Festival in Miami, and I was not impressed. It was pretty violent, and the movie could’ve actually gone somewhere, but it all just fell apart. At times the movie reminded me of You’re Next (and other home invasion movies like the Strangers), but unfortunately it’s nowhere near as good as either of those two films.

    I saw this one today. It had an intrigue but not enough to call it a good horror movie. The cult followers really remind of the guys in “You’re next” (to be honest i disliked it too) but are much less active, not to say boring. The overall atmosphere is good and i liked the actors but the ending was like “we’ve made 70 minutes of the movie but now we don’t know what to do so let’s just finish it”.
