No sports or drama club for this quartet of teenagers; they’re up to something much more frightening after school in EXTRACURRICULAR, out next week. Read on for the details, trailer and poster.

Coming on digital platforms January 17 from Samuel Goldwyn Films, EXTRACURRICULAR was directed by Ray Xue from a screenplay by Matthew Abrams and Padgett Arango. Keenan Tracey, Brittany Raymond, Spencer Macpherson, Brittany Teo and Luke Goss star; the synopsis: “Taking place on Halloween night, this small town is set to experience something truly horrific. And, instead of one or two killers, there are four! Ian [Macpherson], Derek [Tracey], Jenny [Teo] and Miriam [Raymond] have chosen their next victims. Now, they must put a plan together to get in and out before the authorities catch up to them. But on this night, these four high-schoolers encounter unexpected setbacks and their plans fall apart. Now, it is a rush to cover up their crimes—before their families and community find out the truth.”
