Today we caught wind of a trailer for Jonathan Wright’s Psychotica (aka Nostrum), starring Christian Bako, Tara Joshi, Jordan Hayes and Megan Hutchings. The Canadian horror flick was shown in its home country last May, but has yet to get an official stateside release.
Rocked by the gruesome death of one of their best friends, a group of teenage heroin addicts barricade themselves in an abandoned farmhouse in order to kick the habit. Things get out of hand when the drugs they brought with them for one last ‘hoorah’ are more than they bargained for. They struggle to escape with their lives when one of them snaps and turns violent.
Caught in the middle of a menacing social experiment, the teens must overcome the murderous forces within the house as well as the threat that is closing in on them from down the road. With nowhere to run, they must face their greatest fears and fight for their very survival, or be overcome by the very storm they brought upon themselves.
