Billed as a homage to the classic 80’s slasher genre, director Ian Kessner’s Lost After Dark has just revealed its first trailer.
Raven Banner acquired worldwide sales rights, and will be introducing the film at Cannes this week looking for buyers. The producers describe the films as “pays tribute to iconic horror classics like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween and Friday the 13th. Its unique selling point is that the story is a homage told in a retro style that takes audiences back to 1984, when the slasher film ruled the box office.”
Written and directed by Ian Kessner, Lost After Dark’s cat includes Robert Patrick, David Lipper, Elise Gatien, Eve Harlow, Stephan James, Kendra Timmins and Sarah Fisher.
Lost After Dark follows a group of teenagers who sneak out of a high school dance, and head out to party at a friend’s cabin. Along the way their ride breaks down, stranding them near an abandoned farmhouse. After the brutal murder of one of their friends, their quest for help becomes one of survival.
