The first trailer for crime thriller Bad Turn Worse (formerly We Gotta Get Out of This Place) has been released, and this is highly impressive stuff.
The film is directed by Simon Hawkins and Zeke Hawkins, and has been critically acclaimed in terms of the directors talents, and the performances by the actors involved, especially Mark Pellegrino as the villain. Shot in Texas, the film won huge praise after playing at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year, and now the first trailer proves exactly what all the fuss is about.
The trailer oozes quality and menace, utilizing a great soundtrack for maximum impact. As expected, the cast all look highly impressive, and there is a general mood to the film which I really like. There is a real darkness hanging over this, and promises of some nasty stuff going on are everywhere. Bad Turn Worse is definitely a film to put on your radar.
Dutch Southern wrote the film, which is directed by Simon and Zeke Hawkins. The cast includes Logan Huffman, Mark Pellegrino, Ashley Adams, Mackenzie Davis, William Devane and Jon Gries.
Three Texas teens hope to make a break for it and escape their dead-end existence in a cotton-mill town but get sucked into the seedy underbelly of organized crime when one of them steals from the wrong man.
