From the Press Release
In 2012 James Thomas and Canyon Prince founded Two Guys and a Film with a goal of shooting two feature films. In the summer they began production on the films, which they uniquely shot back-to-back.
“Two Guys and a Film was started out of a passion and desire to tell gritty yet compelling stories,” James shares. “When people think of independent films, they often think of art house films. But in all actuality, it simply means that we produce films independently of a major studio. This allows us to have a larger say in what we produce and allows us the freedom to create not only amazing festival films like Hard Sun but also terrifying horror films like Run Like Hell.”
The film centers on Luke, Maggie, Dan, and Sam, two young married couples in the middle of a cross-country road trip, when they are sidetracked in the desert town of Spaulding. Their car is stolen, prompting them to be taken in by local residents Harold and Nancy. What starts as a place to rest their heads and regroup turns into a fight for their lives, utilizing any and all attempts to Run Like Hell.
“Run Like Hell is an action-packed horror film that will make you question taking that next road trip. The film shows the gritty side of humanity and has an eerie realism to it that makes you wonder if this type of thing actually happens. An interesting point we make in the film is that horrifying things don’t only happen at night or when no one is looking. They can be happening all around us, at any moment. Sometimes people we would call normal can even do them. And that is what makes them frightening.” – James Thomas, director
“Sure, it’s your fun catch ’em and kill ’em horror film, but it’s firmly planted in a realistic world. We tried to keep it there, which in my opinion makes it even more terrifying because this stuff could really happen. I know I won’t be taking a road trip any time soon.” – Canyon Prince, producer
