Next month’s release from DREAD (our horror distribution label with our partners at Epic Pictures) is The Fare, a mystery/sci-fi/thriller slated to arrive in select theaters and on VOD and Blu-ray beginning November 19th. Check out the trailer embedded at the top of the article; the synopsis is below.
When a charming woman named Penny climbs into his taxi, Harris finds himself entranced. That is, right up until she disappears from the back seat without a trace. As he desperately tries to make sense of what happened, he resets his meter and is instantly brought back to the moment she first climbed into his cab. He and Penny find themselves trapped in an endlessly looping ride that changes their lives forever.
The Fare has screened internationally and took home numerous awards including Special Mention Jury Award at Fantasporto in Portugal and the Director’s Prize at FilmQuest. Called “a beautifully crafted mystery” by Nightmarish Conjurings and “the cult romantic film of 2019” by Starburst Magazine, The Fare has shades of The Twilight Zone and Hitchcock with a classic noir flare.
The sophomore feature from D.C. Hamilton stars Gino Anthony Pesi (Shades of Blue) and screenwriter Brinna Kelly, who reteams with Hamilton following their work on his directorial debut The Midnight Man (2016). Hamilton, Kelly and Pesi produced alongside Kristin Starns.
