Survival options are limited in this new poster for Downrange, which makes its streaming debut in just a few weeks.
Said to be a throwback to gritty ‘70s thrillers, the single-location suspenser is the latest
from Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura, who made 2000’s Versus and 2002’s Alive, before switching to mainly American productions with the likes of The Midnight Meat Train and No One Lives.
The film stars newcomer Kelly Connaire, Stephanie Pearson (Insidious: Chapter 2), Jason Tobias (Most Likely to Die), Alexa Yeames (TV’s The Originals) and rising genre star Graham Skipper (Beyond the Gates, The Mind’s Eye).
“Six college students are carpooling cross-country when one of their tires blows out on a desolate stretch of country road. Getting out to fix the flat, they quickly discover that this was no accident. The tyre was shot out. With their vehicle incapacitated, the group is pinned down and mercilessly attacked by an unseen assailant as they desperately attempt to find a way to escape.”
“Downrange marks a new style of storytelling for me,” Kitamura said last year. “We’ve crafted a film which is fuelled by relentless dread, and are very excited to share it with horror and suspense fans around the world.”
Downrange will be available to stream on Shudder from April 26th.
