Fangoria were given an exclusive look at a new trailer for retro slasher, Lost After Dark, and you can check out the pretty sweet trailer below.

The film is gearing up for its US release on 1st September, but sadly here in the UK there are no dates as yet. Never mind though, this one looks awesome so expect a UK release to be announced shortly.

The US press release:

If you thought the 80s were dead — think again! On September 1st, Anchor Bay Entertainment goes full 80s retro with Lost After Dark, a loving but harrowing homage that takes audiences back to the decade when slashers ruled the silver screen. The exciting directing debut of writer/director Ian Kessner, Lost After Dark proudly features visceral, old-school prosthetic “kills” and pop songs pulsing to an electronic beat. So throw on a pair of acid wash jeans and go full-on tubular with Lost After Dark!

Spring Ball, 1984. Adrienne (Kendra Timmins; Midnight Sun, “Wingin’ It”), a straight-A student, joins her quarterback crush, Sean (Justin Kelly; Maps to the Stars, Big Muddy), and some friends in sneaking out of their high school dance for some unsupervised mayhem. The teens’ party plans hit a snag when they run out of gas on a deserted road. They head out on foot and discover a rundown farmhouse where they hope to find help. Instead they find themselves at the mercy of Junior Joad (Mark Wiebe; Sweet Karma), a cannibal killer from an urban legend. After the brutal murder of one of their friends, the group’s quest for help becomes one of survival. Will anyone survive the night?

Produced by Goldrush Entertainment’s Eric Gozlan and co-written by Bo Ransdell, Lost After Dark features Robert Patrick (Terminator 2, “From Dusk Till Dawn”), Eve Harlow (“The 100?), Stephan James (Selma), Jesse Camacho (Kick-Ass 2), Elise Gatien (Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days), Alexander Calvert (Lost Boys: The Tribe), Lanie McAuley (Scarecrow), and David Lipper (Black Widower) as well as fun cameos from Sarah Fisher (“Degrassi: The Next Generation”) and Rick Rosenthal (director of Halloween II & Halloween: Resurrection).

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
