GetAWAY is a new “meta” slasher feature having its World Premiere at the deadCenter Film Festival (virtually) on June 13th. It’ll kick off what’s certain to be an exciting and successful festival run.
Today, Dread Central is thrilled to exclusively debut the trailer for GetAWAY. Give it a spin and read more about the film below.
A group of college students is making a horror film for their final project. They’ve found the perfect location: A Summer camp, one recently closed for the season. They will have total privacy and can shoot their ‘slasher flick’ all weekend long with no interruptions. Maddie yearns to be an actress and is trying to get over a recent break-up, so this weekend trip seems like a perfect opportunity: a chance to act in a student film and get away from campus. Maddie soon realizes this is not going to be the weekend she had planned. Her ex Noah is there with his new girlfriend, the movie they’re making is terrible, most of the students are more interested in getting drunk than making a film and, oh yeah… Someone is killing them off. The night devolves into terror (and life imitates art) as a masked killer stalks the cast and crew. There’s no escape, no way to call for help, and no one knows why they’re being slaughtered… Or why the murderer is filming his kills.
GetAWAY is written directed by Blayne Weaver; the film stars Emma Norville, Danielle Carrozza, Kyle Mangold, Franchesca Contreras, Michael Recchia, and Joshua Cody.
I’ve always been a fan of scary movies. Zombies, ghosts, and monsters are great but they don’t really get me. The horror films that would keep me up at night were about that single disturbed individual who wanted to kill. The slasher movies of the ’70s and ’80s were always the scariest to me. I also love how those films often had a wry sense of humor about them. It’s not unusual to laugh at a line from an irreverent character moments before they become a bloody victim. GetAWAY is my homage to these films.
