JK! I really don’t feel one way or another about this – prob just not my thing. It’s been about a year and a half since we wrote about Crush, the teen thriller starring Lucas Till,Sarah Bolger, Crystal Reed, Reid Ewing Camille Guaty, Caitriona Balfe and Saw writer/star Leigh Whannell. The film was directed by Malik Bader from a script by Sonny Mallhi (The Roommate), who is clearly sticking to the familiar side of the pool. Now we have a trailer that seems more or less in line with what you’d expect.
In the film,”High school heartthrob Scott has it all; good looks, popularity… and a secret admirer. But what starts out as a seemingly innocent crush soon turns deadly. Who’s responsible? Scott’s long time friend Jules, frustrated with their platonic relationship? Bess, a shy classmate, increasingly jealous of his friendship with Jules? Or Jeffrey, a bright outcast whose crush on Bess has lead him to become increasingly obsessive? One thing’s certain, time’s running out and Scott must uncover the psychotic stalker before it’s too late.”
Millenium Entertainment will be releasing Crush on DVD and Blu-ray April 9th, 2013. Head inside for the trailer! READ MORE
