Look At Me Films has dropped a new poster for their upcoming release of Megan Freels Johnston’s The Ice Cream Truck, and it’s a stylishly vintage-looking beaut.
Freels Johnston, who directed twisty micro-budget horror thriller Rebound, wrote, produced and directed the film, which stars Being Human’s Deanna Russo as Mary, who moves back to her suburban hometown when her husband gets relocated for work. With the rest of her family tying up loose ends back home, she moves into their new house alone. Her sense of warm nostalgia at returning to the town where she grew up however, is soon interrupted by the feeling that something is not right, and there’s something particularly sinister about the ice cream truck that constantly patrols her street.
The Ice Cream Truck also stars John Redlinger (Thirst, TV’s Banshee), Hilary Barraford (United States of Tara), Jeff Daniel Phillips (31, The Lords of Salem), Lisa Ann Walter (Room 6) and Emil Johnsen (Corridor) as The Ice Cream Man.
“As a long time lover of the horror genre, I have always found that there was a point of view missing. There aren’t enough horror films by women, for women and about women,” explains Freels Johnston in the film’s press materials. “My films are about what’s scary inside and outside the female psyche and the fine line that often separates the divide.”
The Ice Cream Truck has locked down distribution for a release sometime in 2017.
