The U.S. rights for the upcoming demonic truck horror-thriller Wrecker
were acquired by XLrator Media from IndustryWorks Pictures up here in Canada. IndustryWorks will distribute the pic here in Canada and is handling international sales at AFM.
The story follows best friends Emily and Lesley as they take a road trip to a music festival in the desert. Emily "borrows" her boyfriend's Mustang GT to make things exciting, but the partying ends when they find themselves pursued by a seemingly psychotic truck driver, who forces them to play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. With an unknown evil force bearing down on them and a long stretch of deserted highway ahead, their idyllic road trip becomes their worst nightmare.
stars Anna Hutchison (The Cabin in the Woods
) and Drea Whitburn. The film was directed by Michael Bafaro, who has already done a handful of horror flicks with IndustryWorks. Wrecker
is currently in post-production.
"Evoking such classics as Steven Spielberg's Duel and Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive, Wrecker's monster-truck-from-hell will thrill and terrify audiences and make them reconsider that summer road trip" said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.
"Wrecker will revive the classic horror-thriller genre and keep audiences at the edge of their seats," said Evan Tylor, CEO of IndustryWorks Pictures. "It was fun to create a modern genre film that pays homage to a classic. We don't see a lot of originality anymore so we wanted to create something a little different this time."
XLrator Media has plans for a Summer release in 2015. Typical release strategies include a theatrical release with VOD and home entertainment releases to follow shortly thereafter.
