Shelved longer than the canned goods in your grandparents’ pantry, Lars Klevberg’s 2017 Polaroid will finally be released this fall.
Based on the 2017 short film of the same name, directed by none other than Klevberg himself, Polaroid would have marked the wide release debut of the director. Because of the massive delay in release, 2019’s Child’s Play, a remake of the 1988 original, beat it to the punch. Polaroid will see a limited run in theaters and video-on-demand September 17th, 2019.
To mark the renewed release, Vertical Entertainment re-dropped the official trailer. To refresh your memory, check it out below!
High school loner Bird Fitcher has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the mysterious Polaroid vintage camera she stumbles upon, but it doesn’t take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic end.
Polaroid stars Kathryn Prescott (Skins, Jane), Tyler Young (Eyewitness, When We Rise) and Samantha Logan (All American, 13 Reasons Why).
For those who don’t know, Polaroid finished filming in May of 2017 and was scheduled for release on August 25th of the same year. Developed by Dimension Films, a property formerly under the umbrella of The Weinstein Company, the film became entangled in the horrifically evil, endless world that is legal litigation. Lantern Entertainment, which purchased the entirety of the disgraced company’s assets, planned to release Polaroid earlier than the upcoming fall release. Finally, after more court challenges after a bank that believed they owned the rights, the film saw its international debut in Germany on January 10th, 2019.
Are you excited to finally see Polaroid? Do you remember where you were the first time you saw the trailer two years ago? If you can recall which movie the trailer was attached to in 2017 (I can’t and it’s driving me NUTS) let me know over on Nightmare on Film Street’s Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages!
