It’s funny how things can go from bad to worse to what the hell?! That’s kind of the story behind the new trailer for the upcoming film Ferocious. Just from the teaser you can tell there are some intriguing (and smarmy) characters in this one.
Written and directed by Robert Cuffley, Ferocious was produced by Carolyn McMaster and Anand Ramayya. The film stars Amanda Crew, Kim Coates, Dustin Milligan, Michael Eklund and Katie Boland.
Take a peek at the trailer below, and dig the hot disco ball poster. For more visit the official Ferocious website, “like” Ferocious on Facebook and follow Ferocious on Twitter (@ferociousmovie). A theatrical release is set for later this year.
From the Press Release
Director Robert Cuffley has released the trailer for Ferocious, a nail-biting thriller about popular television actress Leigh Parrish (Amanda Crew), who tries to secretly retrieve a sexually incriminating videotape from a seedy nightclub.
The film premiered at the World Film Festival in Montreal recently and “had people cringing and jumping at shadows,” observed writer/director Robert Cuffley. “It was great. Seeing it with an audience is, in a sense, seeing it for the first time. So I consider this the first time I’ve ‘seen’ the movie. And it really works nicely. Acting is top-notch.” Fantasia Film Festival’s Mitch Davis emphatically comments, “If you want to see one hell of an eccentrically evil Kim Coates performance, not to mention a typically powerhouse turn by Michael Eklund, be sure to check out Robert Cuffley’s aptly-titled Ferocious!”
Ferocious plays at the Calgary International Film Festival on Saturday, September 22, at 9:30pm at Calgary’s Globe Theatre. The entire cast will be in attendance, including Amanda Crew (Jobs, Charlie St. Cloud), Kim Coates (“Sons of Anarchy,” Black Hawk Down), Michael Eklund, Dustin Milligan and Katie Boland.
The future looks positively rosy for Leigh. Having landed a role on a soap opera that has exploded across North America, Leigh is a star whose ascension seems to have no ceiling. On a trip to visit her small-town roots, Leigh engages with local press, wows the crowds and has the whole town abuzz with her name.
But the truth behind her return home is not one shared with family, the media or even her manager, Callum. Late at night she will return to her former place of employment, Shakers, a grungy night club. There’s something there she left behind that could put an immediate end to her career. And she’s not leaving until she gets it.
