Last year it was announced that M3 Creative, the film studio and network marketing company that also produced Don Coscarelli’s indie cult classic John Dies at the End, along with Midnight Alliance, were aligning on Applecart.
Conceived and directed by first-time feature director Brad Baruh, Applecart is told in a dual storyline exploring two very different perspectives about a family’s murderous encounter in the woods.
We now have the film’s first trailer that boasts performances by Brea Grant (Rob Zombie’s Halloween and H2, “Dexter,” “Heroes”) and 80’s horror icon Barbara Crampton, who starred in From Beyond and Re-Animator before popping back up in modern horror films such as Adam Wingard’s You’re Next and We Are Still Here.
Also starring is AJ Bowen – who broke out in David Bruckner’s festival smash The Signal before toplining A Horrible Way to Die (which I produced), You’re Next, as well as Ti West’s House of the Devil and The Sacrament – with Sophie Dalah (Satanic Unbroken), Elise Luthman and Joshua Hoffman.
Utilizing both a documentary-style news format and a classic, cinematic narrative, the film is said to explore genre themes with a new twist on structure.
Andy Meyers and Baruh produced the film, with Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, John Dies At the End, Bubba Ho-Tep) serving as executive producer.
