With its LA Film Festival premiere imminent, a tense clip has emerged for survival horror Desolation, a film which pits a grieving family and their friend against a psychotic hitch hiker. The film also now has the sexiest poster art I’ve seen in some time.
Director Sam Patton makes his feature debut with the film, which sees a mother takes a trip into the wilds to scatter her late husband’s ashes, joined by her son and best friend. The three are forced to confront some deep fears when a lone hitch hiker begins to pursue them. Jaimi Paige, Toby Nichols and Alyshia Ochse star as the preyed upon trio, with Claude Duhamel as The Hiker.
The LA Film Festival kicked off on June 14th and runs until June 22nd. Desolation will play in the festival’s Nightfall category.
