Ever see a little anthology film called Nite Tales? It was the one that starred Flava Flav introducing tales of carnage Crypt Keeper style. Though Flav nearly crippled the movie (boy did he come close), what made it work was the passion of director Deon Taylor. We’ve got the skinny on another project from Taylor that’s been kicking around for a while now.
According to Screen Daily Screen Media Films has struck a distribution partnership with Deon Taylor Enterprises/Vista Taylor for the thriller Dead Tone, which stars Rutger Hauer, Jud Tylor, Antwon Tanner, and Brian Hooks (who co-directed) and was formerly known as 7eventy 5ive.
Based on real events (and what isn’t nowadays?), Dead Tone is about college students whose prank phone calls target the wrong person, a madman who turns on them. Look for the film in select cities in the US starting September 3rd.
Check out the official trailer below. (Thanks for the heads-up, Mary P!)
