Megan Freels-Johnston is taking a side-step away from her hard-hitting horror Rebound from last year, and is now set to direct Ice Cream Truck. The title alone sound a lot friendlier than Rebound, but the film is said to be inspired by filmmakers Roman Polankski and David Lynch, so don’t go expecting anything too pleasant.
Megan Freels-Johnston is making a great name for herself in the Indie horror community and the script for Ice Cream Truck is already garnering some attention. As the daughter of author Elmore Leonard, we can definitely see where she gets her interest in the thrilling side of cinema.
Mary’s husband gets relocated for work which allows her to move back to her suburban hometown. As her family ties up loose ends back home, Mary (Deanna Russo) moves into their new house all alone and ….waits. Although her familiar suburb is a constant reminder of her youth, something seems strange. A local Ice Cream Man with a love of nostalgia starts to kill some of her neighbours. Mary is torn between her mature instincts that something is wrong and the distracting memories of her younger days.
From the poster, it seems as though Ice Cream Truck is going to be a throwback horror with a campy. Nonetheless, if her previous film Rebound is anything to go by, we should still expect a few gory surprises. More as it comes!
