It’s time again for Trailer Watch, where we present trailers for three upcoming movies set to attract genre fans.
First, we’re going on a Camping Trip. However, this is one trip these people will regret in the upcoming horror film from the duo of Leonardo and Damian Fuica.
In the summer of 2020, two couples decide to go on a COVID era camping trip after months of being in lockdown. The freedom of nature and the company of their best friends offer the group a rare sense of normality, but though secluded, they’re not alone. Nearby, during a botched drop off, two goons decide to go rogue; inadvertently, implicating the campers. What started as a fun-filled vacation quickly turns into a test of loyalty and survival. Suddenly the pandemic is the least of their worries.
The film stars Leo Zola (aka director Leonardo Fuica), Caitlin Cameron, Hannah Forest Briand and Alex Gravenstein. The film will be released by Gravitas Ventures on Digital on August 16.
Next up, we have another demonic possession movie in the form of Of the Devil. Eileen Dietz, who played Pazuzu in the classic The Exorcist, stars in the film along with Vernon Wells, Robert LaSardo, and Devanny Pinn; based on a story from WFG favorite James Cullen Bressack.
A desperate mother and father attempt to cure their eight-year-old son’s brain tumor by enlisting the help of a shamanistic healer; when the ritual results in the child being possessed by an ancient demon, the father must now face his own demons and return to his role as a former priest in order to save his son’s soul and to protect humanity from the evil that he has unleashed.
Directed by Kelton Jones, the film will be released on Digital on August 9 from Uncork’d Entertainment.
Finally, comes Hypochrondiac, a LGBTQ horror film about a man whose past demons have come back to haunt him and he is determined to solve the mystery before it consumes him.
Will, a young Hispanic gay potter, is one gregarious guy. His boss is terrible, but he’s got a great boyfriend and a great job. Unfortunately, behind that veneer is a dark past of violence and mental illness that he is desperate to keep hidden. When his bipolar mother comes out of the woodwork after ten years of silence, he begins exhibiting unexplainable symptoms and spirals into an obsession, determined to solve this mystery of his own.
Written and directed by Addison Heimann, the film stars Zach Villa, Devon Graye, Paget Brewster, Marlene Forte, Madeline Zima, Yumarie Morales, and Chris Doubek. The film will be released in theaters on July 29 then on VOD and Digital on August 4 from XYZ Films.
