Horror website Shock Till You Drop are celebrating their first distribution release with Solo, and have just revealed the first trailer for the nasty horror. The film is based on an island where a young girl has to spend two nights on her own as part of an initiation to become a summer camp counsellor, with disastrous results.
The trailer is very well put together, with a nice creepy build up before piling on an onslaught of scares and violence, and I will happily admit to being hooked on seeing this!
Solo is written and directed by Isaac Cravit, and the cast includes Annie Clark, Daniel Kash, Richard Clarkin, Steven Love and Alyssa Capriotti. The film will be available in the US on digital and VOD platforms from October 22nd.
17-year-old Gillian takes a job as a counselor at a remote summer camp. As part of her initiation, she must spend two nights by herself on the camp’s island, an intimidating collision of rock and wilderness carved out of the lake, supposedly haunted by the ghost of a camper who disappeared suspiciously decades before. When Gilllian’s “solo” is interrupted by a local man responding to a distress call, what was meant to be a peaceful time alone in nature devolves into something disturbingly different. As her paranoia mounts, a horrifying secret is uprooted and Gillian finds herself in a desperate fight to survive.
