Thursday, May 30, 2019 | News


THE CRAFT’s Fairuza Balk is one of the threatening TRESPASSERS in a film that played festivals as HELL IS WHERE THE HOME IS, and is now set for U.S. release this summer.

IFC Midnight picked up the movie and will open it Friday, July 12 at New York City’s IFC Center and Los Angeles’ Arena Hollywood, as well as on VOD. Directed by Orson Oblowitz (who discusses it with us here) and written by Corey Deshon, TRESPASSERS also stars Angela Trimbur (TRASH FIRE), Janel Parrish, Jonathan Howard and Zach Avery. The synopsis: “Two couples, each working through relationship issues, rent a gorgeous house in the desert for a sex- and drug-fueled escape from reality. Sarah [Trimbur] and Estelle [Parrish] are longtime best friends looking forward to reconnecting after a period apart; their boyfriends, Joseph [Avery] and Victor [Howard], however, are immediately wary of one another. As tensions escalate over the course of a debaucherous night, things take an unexpected turn when a woman [Balk] claiming to be a neighbor with car trouble shows up at the door. She seems harmless enough…or so they think. As the twists and turns pile up, so does the body count in this stylish, blood- and neon-soaked thriller which hits with the furious force of a machete to the skull.”
