There’s an inhuman killer on the beat in the new found-footage fright freature.

Gravitas Ventures releases CRUISER on VOD August 25. Directed by longtime production designer Randy Ser (DARKMAN) and written and produced by Sam Hensley Jr., it stars Tony award-winning Broadway and film actor Shuler Hensley (VAN HELSING), Lori Beth Edgeman, Hayes Mercure and Matt Brady. The synopsis: “After murdering a police officer and stealing his patrol car, a mysterious, hulking figure begins a night of carnage and terror in a small Georgia town, pulling over innocent victims until a shocking final confrontation reveals the killer to be even more monstrous than anyone imagined. The mayhem is recorded in a uniquely cinematic found footage style, all captured through police cruiser car cams, cell phones, and surveillance cameras. The footage was edited together to assist in the capture of the perpetrator of these heinous acts.”

Ser says, “CRUISER brings a uniquely cinematic style to the telling of a found-footage horror film. It will also introduce horror fans to a character ‘known by many names,’ who bears a heavenly singing voice used to soothe victims as they are viciously dismembered during their last moments on Earth.”
