Trailer Heads Down ‘Buckout Road’ and Off to Festivals

Matthew Currie Holmes’ directorial debut, Buckout Road, just won its first film festival award and released a full-length trailer.

This supernatural thriller, produced by John Gillespie & Brad Clark and stars Evan Ross (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Lee Daniels’ Star ), Henry Czerny (Mission: Impossible, Quantico), Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Wynona Earp, Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Danny Glover (Saw, Predator 2, Lethal Weapon I-IV) and Colm Feore (House of Cards, Thor).

Having just started its festival run, Buckout Road already won Best Thriller Feature Film at the Hot Springs Horror Film Festival. This award-winning film is also nominated for Best Picture and Best Director at the World Music and Independent Film Festival.

October screenings for Buckout Road will be held in Nashville, Tennessee on October 7 at 3:15pm as part of the International Black Film Festival; and Toronto, Ontario on October 13 at 7:00pm as part of Commffest 2017. Tickets for both screenings are available: IBFF (Nashville) and COMMFFEST (Toronto).

“‘Buckout Road’ might be known as the most haunted road in New York State, but nobody really believed it… until now.  A college class project on modern mythology turns deadly when a trio of students discovers a series of horrific urban legends surrounding Buckout Road may actually be true. The deeper they dig into the road’s dark, mysterious history, the more dangerous their quest becomes.  From witches burning at the stake to backwoods albino killer to a modern, unstoppable stalker, writer/director and horror-film aficionado Matthew Currie Holmes leave no genre unexploited in his loving throwback to late-80’s midnight movies.

    Looks good in some parts. I really wanted to see the two guys wearing beanies get off’d.

    This would have been relevant about 30 years ago, but Buckout Rd has been massively developed over the last couple of decades. Gorgeous homes. Only less than a quarter mile of it is still kind of redneck and creepy, but not as much as it used to be. I hike around that area all the time (Silverlake). Very pretty, but not all that creepy. Still, it’s cool to have a movie about a place that I grew up around, but the only thing scary about Buckout Road are the property taxes lol!

    I saw Buckout Road at the Community Film Festival in Toronto. I really enjoyed it. It lends itself very well as a horror and a dark comedy!
    Also I didn’t know Evan Ross was in the hunger games!!
    Definitely recommend it.
