Actresses from IT FOLLOWS and Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN are among the youths terrorized by a zombifying virus in FERAL, set for release this summer. Jump past the jump for the info, trailer and poster.
IFC Midnight breaks FERAL out in select theaters and on VOD and digital platforms May 25. Directed by Mark Young from a script he wrote with Adam Frazier, the film stars HALLOWEEN’s Scout Taylor-Compton, IT FOLLOWS’ Olivia Luccardi, Renee Olstead, Brock Kelly, Landry Allbright, George Finn and THE DEVIL’S REJECTS’ Lew Temple.

They’ve got a hell of a fight before them if they hope to survive…”
