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.
