Check out two recent posters and behind-the-scene stills for upcoming SUMMER OF ’84, a horror-thriller set in the suburban dream of the mid 1980’s.
Growing up on a quiet cul-de-sac in Ipswich, Massachusetts, Davey’s desperate to believe there’s more to life than what he sees from his bedroom window. For him, every tabloid cover is a peek into the world as it really is, as it really must be past the borders of the humdrum neighborhood where he and his best friends Eats, Farraday, and Woody have grown up.
Sure, they spend their summers playing nighttime flashlight tag (“Manhunt”), riding their BMX bikes all over town, and spying on the hot, sometimes topless chick next door, Nikki… but Davey thirsts for more. As their investigation heats up, Davey and his best buds soon discover Mr. Mackey is on to them, and their suspicions quickly become all too real.
The film recently wrapped in Vancouver and was directed by François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell (the team behind 2015’s Turbo Kid). The film stars Rich Sommer from TV’s Mad Men and Tiera Skovbye from TV’s Riverdale. The script was written by Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith and featured on the 2016 Bloodlist.
This looks like one to watch, and we’ll keep you updated as new information comes in. Read on for the awesome posters and let us know what you think in the comments!
