Wednesday, June 8, 2022 | News


It’s the latest cinematic road trip into the very strange.

NEXT EXIT has its world premiere this Friday, June 10 at the Tribeca Film Festival. Written and directed by Mali Elfman, it stars Katie Parker, Rahul Kohli (THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR, MIDNIGHT MASS), Rose McIver, Tongayi Chirisa, Tim Griffin, Diva Zappa, Nico Evers-Swindell and Karen Gillan (OCULUS). The synopsis: “When a research scientist makes national news proving she can track people into the afterlife, Rose [Parker] sees a way out and Teddy [Kohli] sees his chance to finally make it. These two strangers, both harboring dark secrets, race to join the doctor’s contentious study and leave this life behind. While Rose is haunted by a ghostly presence that she can’t outrun, Teddy is forced to confront his past. As these two misfits humorously quarrel their way across the country, they meet people along the way who force them to reckon with what is really driving them.”
