Post-apocalyptic horror films often come with a heavy dose of sci-fi foundational elements to them. However, that trend can easily be bucked and the dial turned the other way towards a more western approach, as is evidenced by the upcoming thriller The Outer Wild, which will be coming out on VOD and in limited theaters on September 28 via Red Hound Films. Today, we are bringing you the exclusive reveal of both the poster (right) and trailer (above).
“In this post-apocalyptic frontier western, mankind has given way to a new breed of beast, mutated from man. The survivor Laura may be the cure to these mutations but she flees to save herself. Aided by a hunter sent to catch her, she braves the dangerous unnatural wilderness in order to find a fabled refuge of freedom — and only there will she discover the fate of humanity at the end of the world.”
Pre-orders are already open on iTunes.
Written and directed by Philip Chidel, who produces alongside Christian Oliver, Ashleigh Snead, and Dean Stapleton, The Outer Wild stars Lauren McKnight, Christian Oliver, Jeffrey Vincent Parise, Tory Taranova, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Zach Roerig, and Dean Stapleton. The film was negotiated by Todd Slater for Blue Fox/Red Hound and Christian Oliver of Chabo Films.
