If recent horror movies like Super Dark Times and Summer of 1984 have taught us anything, it’s that the suburbs are a perfect subterfuge for a specific, terrifying breed of human monsters. But what if you found out that someone in your immediate family is a dangerous serial killer? This is the situation high school student Tyler (played by Charlie Plummer) finds himself in the trailer for The Clovehitch Killer, arriving in select theaters and VOD on November 16th courtesy of IFC Midnight.
Check out the synopsis and trailer below. The Clovehitch Killer is directed by Duncan Skiles from a screenplay penned by Christopher Ford. In addition to Plummer, the film stars Dylan McDermott, Samantha Mathis, Madisen Beaty, Brenna Sherman, and Lance Chantiles-Wertz.
Tyler’s a good kid, a boy scout, raised by a poor but happy family in a small, religious town. But when he finds his dad, Don, has disturbing pornography hidden in the shed, he starts to fear that his dad might be Clovehitch, an infamous serial killer that was never caught. Tyler teams up with Kassi, a teenage outcast who’s morbidly obsessed with the Clovehitch legend, to discover the truth in time to save his family.
