Let’s face it, the slasher genre will never get old and will continue to excite the horror crowd for years, even decades to come. The big question hanging over the genre is can directors continue to add something new, and can the genre continue to be re-invented? Director Tii Rick’s seem to think so as his slasher ‘homage’ releases its first trailer and poster. Say hello to Rage: Midsummer’s Eve.
So what’s the twist here? Well, generally slashers take place at night, but Rick has made a slasher which takes place entirely during the day. He has based his film in the Finnish Arctic Circle, at a time of year when the sun doesn’t set.
“ ‘Rage’ is a film honouring all the great horror features I have seen in my childhood: ‘Halloween,’ ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ and ‘Friday The 13th’ are all films that I have grown up with and which I secretly watched way before I was supposed to see them. This film is a tribute to all of those films.” said Ricks.
This will be the first feature film for La Brea Pictures. Check out the trailer and poster below.
