The official trailer for #FLOAT has bobbed into view, promising to play on classic tropes of 80s slasher films—like young people ignoring grave warnings to stay away—while still employing a modern sensibility
In #FLOAT: “Young, beautiful and full of life, vlogger Kali and her friends are heading to the river for their annual float, but it’s the first time since their friend overdosed and drowned last year. Their partying turns deadly as a sinister paranormal force plunges them into a life-and-death struggle, forcing them to face their own fears as they turn on each other—and proceed to die one by one.”
#FLOAT was written and directed by Zac Locke, who produced 2019’s Black Christmas. Kaya Coleman, Scarlett Sperduto, Grant Morningstar, Kate Mayhew, Matt Wise, and Christina Nguyen star.
Will the river run red with blood? Find out when #FLOAT gets a Digital and VOD release in the U.S. on December 9th. In the meantime, wade into the chilly waters of the trailer below.
