68 Kill comes from Chop director Trent Haaga and is an adaptation of Bryan Smith’s novel of the same name. The flick stars Matthew Gray Gubler (Excision) as Chip, who goes along with a series of increasingly bad deeds after agreeing to help his violent, nihilistic girlfriend Liza (AnnaLynne McCord) steal $68,000.
Check out the new poster for the film; it’s gloriously retro and emphasises the ‘80s vibes the film is dying to capture. From the look of the trailer, it is succeeding to be a barmy, violent and fast-paced ride with a set of wacky characters.
Trailer-dwelling, sewage-pumping Chip may not lead the most glamorous life, but he’s got one thing going for him: he’s head over heels infatuated with his girlfriend Liza. He’s more than willing to overlook her wild streak—the fact that she’s hooking up with their landlord; her rather extreme mood swings —so when she proposes a plot to steal $68,000, he goes along with the plan. But when what was supposed to be a simple heist turns into an off-the-rails, blood-spattered crime spree, Chip learns the hard way just how deranged the love of his life really is.
68 Kill had its world premiere at this year’s SXSW festival, where it drove away with the Best Midnighter Audience Award. London’s Horror Channel FrightFest will play host to the film’s European Premiere this August 25th.
Remind yourself of the utterly insane trailer below.
