ROAD GAMES will be coming to Digital Download and VOD 26th August and DVD 29th August.

British director Abner Pastoll’s French-set horror thriller smartly blends the thrills of a killer on the road film with the chills of the strangers stuck in an old dark house set-up – with nerve stretching results.

With an attractive pair of rising stars in the lead roles – Andrew Simpson and Joséphine de La Baume – and stellar performances from screen veterans Frédéric Pierrot and Barbara Crampton – along with a healthy dose of sex and violence, and some unique, shocking plot twists along the way, Road Games treads a familiar path in a very unique way.

With knowing nods to films including Switchblade Romance, Wolf Creek, The Hitcher and classic 1970 French road movie chiller And Soon The Darkness, and a stand out turn from 1980s scream queen Barbara Crampton, Road Games is a real treat for horror fans – as well as a fiercely effective nail-biter that ratchets up the tension in the final act to an almost unbearable degree.

Beautifully filmed, featuring a brooding, pulsing John Carpenter-esque synth score, and packed with delicious surprises (including a cameo corpse and a nifty post end-credits sequence), Road Games is a sensational thrill ride into the dark heart of rural France.


BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
