We love Richard Bates Jr. at SCREAM and can’t wait for Trash Fire to be released. The film recently premiered at Sundance film festival with a mostly positive reaction, cementing the director as a hit with cult audiences. His dark-comedy horror style prevents his films from being enjoyable per se, but there is definitely something to commend within his twisted and unique features.
You can take a look at a clip from his next horror-drama Trash Fire below, which shows a few home truths being aired at the dinner table. Were these people not raised to know that it’s rude to talk with your mouth full?
When Owen is forced to confront the past he’s been running from his whole adult life, he and his girlfriend, Isabel, become entangled in a horrifying web of lies, deceit, and murder. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll be scarred for life.
Keep your eyes peeled for a release date.
