A few weeks ago the Weinsteins announced that Polaroid had been yanked from its August 25th release date, and the new release date (unless it’s postponed again) is now December 1, 2017. Today the MPAA chimed in with a rating.
Polaroid has been given a PG-13 for “violence/terror, thematic elements, brief strong language, some teen drinking and drug material, along with imminent postponement.”
Polaroid stars Kathryn Prescott (“Finding Carter”), Mitch Pileggi (“The X-Files”), Grace Zabriskie (The Grudge, “Santa Clarita Diet”), Tyler Young (Eyewitness), Keenan Tracey (“Bates Motel”), Samantha Logan (“The Fosters”), Priscilla Quintana (Stranded), Madelaine Petsch (“Riverdale”), and Javier Botet (The Conjuring 2, Mama, IT).
Norwegian director Lars Klevberg shot the film from a screenplay by Blair Butler. Dimension Films optioned the rights after Klevberg’s short made a splash at festivals and won Best Short for him and Best Cinematography for Pål Ulvik Rokseth at the Los Angeles Horror Competition short film festival.
Look for Polaroid… probably never.
Producing the film are Chris Bender, Jake Wagner, and Jake Weiner of Good Fear, producers of the original short; John Einar Hagen and Petter Onstad Lokke of El Dorado Films; and Roy Lee of Vertigo Films.
From the producers of the THE RING and THE GRUDGE and based on the award-winning short by Lars Klevberg, comes the next iconic and bold new vision in horror: POLAROID.
High school loner Bird Fitcher has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the mysterious Polaroid vintage camera she stumbles upon, but it doesn’t take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic end.
